THIS keeps on happening at least 6 - 8 a year. ive cleared the cache off Firefox, rebooted it, got a now TESCO site and it is still the same. Yet Google fires up all right all the time. I have got 3 pc of a type and they all can get TESCO without any trouble. Ive been with you for 20yrs and am reluctant to change noW. Tesco just say your better of using Google than Firefox, which isn't much help. Yes they can get me on (sometimes) but they all ways say Google is the one really.

There must be something i can do?

I turned on my computer today and when I went to speed dial 2, it wasn't working. Restarting Firefox didn't help. I checked my extensions and found that it had been automatically disabled. The challenge I'm facing is ... there were specific links that I 'need' that I cannot access. Is there a way to recover said data?

Hi,

Since 1-2 months my Firefox address bar grows vertically to about 1.5 its normal size when I click it. I think this came with an update. How can I disable this? It's really annoying and unnecessary.

Thanks

So I recently installed Firefox beta. It installed on top of main firefox. Now I am in beta version 84 but if i try to open regular firefox release version 83 it says running an old version will corrupt profile data. It just has an option to create a new profile, so i am asking if there is a way to import my settings from my original profile or make my original profile run on version 83 or should I just wait for version 84 to be released in main firefox.

When I opened Firefox I received a "news message" that makes no sense to me. How can I revert Firefox to its former usefulness? There is something about the former installation of Firefox being undisturbed, but I cannot find that installation. Apparently this has something to do with sync-ing my desktop Firefox with other installations -- I've less than zero interest in sync-ing.

What happened to the bookmarks I had stored in the bookmark bar? How do I get those back?

Hello, I use Microsoft Teams daily and I recently switched to firefox. Everything is great so far except that when I try to login to teams I'm stuck in an endless loop and never succeed to login. I searched and found that it is a cookies issue and I should allow the following cookies:

   [*.]microsoft.com
   [*.]microsoftonline.com
   [*.]teams.skype.com
   [*.]teams.microsoft.com
   [*.]sfbassets.com
   [*.]skypeforbusiness.com

However, this format does not work with firefox and I tried placing a normal URL of each like : https://microsoft.com but it didn't work. So what is the format equivalent in firefox to these to whitelist these cookies

Because FireFox has been running so slowly, a few minutes ago I chose to Refresh FireFox. The web page said bookmarks and other things would be preserved, but after the refresh FireFox has no bookmarks. I have tried the Restore option under Import and Backups on the Library panel and chose the most recent listing (dated today), but FireFox says "Unable to process the backup file". It also can't process any other, earlier, entry listed.

Is there anything I can do to try to get my bookmarks back, or has FireFox totally hosed me?

Thanks,

Dears,

after upgrading Firefox from 52.9 to 78.5 (on Debian Linux), my profile is somehow broken, so I just created a new profile.

I could export my bookmarks and import in the new profile, but neither logins nor history.

How can I do that?

Thank you in advance!
