Firefox "mobile" bookmarks (5,000 web page links) won't transfer to other browsers!

Locking this thread, please continue here: [/questions/1435156]
My isp for mail has gone cheapo and dropped me from using mail as a back up to send any portion of the 5000 links I had on Firefox...so please don't ask if I can send them. Even click and drag only works ONE bookmark at a time (it just disappears if I drag a bunch whether 10 or 4000!).

   I am trying to get the bookmarks easily onto other browsers such as Chrome, Yahoo or lastly, gmail.  All of these have the simplest of directions, either to "export as HTML" or as JSON (from Fri the 13th?!).  In any event, they worked with ALL other bookmark files/folders, but not the ones within the mobile bookmarks on f.fox.
   How in heck am I going to be able to export them in a significant #, if Mozilla doesn't have a feature to correct them out of whatever gosh darn format they're in, and let them be unencumbered for direct "export to" or "import to" settiings on other browsers or from the mac/firefox "save as new file".
   At first I thought it was the fact that bookmarks for the mac also get designated as icloud if I move them to desktop sometimes (i.e there's a cute little icon on desk above file/name/pic.  I don't think that is the case as the other bookmarks I've sent would have failed (but they didn't).
  Isn't there a simple app that can extricate these "mobile bookmarks' as they certainly are NOT, and were not posed to me as a issue when I started using SYNC!

I wish to re-install my Old Firefox Data to my restored Win 10 computer Firefox browser bookmarks. There was no link given to migrate this info held in our MS OneDrive folder (as listed on the Desktop).

Last year in February MS crashed my Chrome browser. I could not re-install that, but could download and install Firefox. Now the MS auto updates began to trashed our Internet Win 10 system in late December. Everyone is being herded into the train's automobile cars haulers so they can back us into a lake...

After the latest time Firefox forcibly closed all windows and updated itself, twitter, crunchyroll and gmail don't work. They work fine on Google Chrome, but not on Firefox. I just can't sign in/Log in to these sites.

I had two Firefox windows open, one private and one not, and a lot of tabs open on both, and while I was browsing the internet on the non-private tab, suddenly both of them close. I reopen Firefox (or it reopens itself, I don't quite remember) and it shows me a message telling me about how I can save articles on pocket to read them later instead of keeping lots of tabs open. I restore my session, and most (but, bizarrely, not all) of my tabs come back, but then, I try to log into gmail, and I never get past the stage where it asks me my email adress, I keep re-entering my email and clicking on the next button and it just loads the same page again, and when I try to log into crunchyroll it brings me to a page that just keeps loading and stays black without ever being truly loaded, and when I try to log into twitter everything stays black too except with a twitter logo in the center. I can still go to some other sites on Firefox, and I can still go to twitter, gmail, youtube and crunchyroll on Google Chrome, but twitter, gmail, YouTube and Crunchyroll don't seem to work on FireFox and I don't understand why!

This is the second time I've tried this, got sent back to sign in when I went to see what version of Firefox I'm using! I can't see the text of my mail in gmail inbox webpage using Firefox. I can see the whole message completely when I use the gmail inbox webpage using Edge. I have used gmail inbox with Firefox for years and this has only occurred today. I'm using windows 11, up to date and my Firefox is 97.0.1 (if I remember correctly, I'm not going to check again and have to start this process all over!) If I can't read my mail then is it Edge for me in the future?

I realize that you all don't support the older version. Yet it's also the case that Apple won't update this El Capitan on my 2008 model (terrible, a crying shame, I know).

I've also tried to install your Extended Support Release. Will that work? I'm an independent research scholar, not currently associated with either Oxford or Stanford.

So I really need to have your Firefox back — I had it until this morning, when I needed to trash it (b/c of a bug), and then re-install. Yet I've not been able to re-install so far.

Hence, I'm seeking your help!

Thank you, Davy

This is not a request for help but a comment on the new version of Firefox. Today a new version of FF was installed on my computer and it wiped out ALL my passwords for EVERY account I own - personal and business. I am extremely pissed off because I have to reset all my passwords (which will take days)! For now on when you offer a new version of FF, warn the individual to back up their passwords and user names.

The question is am I going to keep using FF or just start fresh with another browser to avoid this headache in the future.

You have to up your game.

to upgrade my firefox browser from 32 bit to 64 bit, I was following the mozilla instructions to download the 64 bit version, but then uninstall the 32 bit version before installing the 64 bit version. However, using the microsoft store to obtain the 64 bit version, it didn't just download it, it installed the 64 bit version. Now I have both. Should I merely remove 32 bit, and my profile file will be accessed to complete the set up of the 64 bit version? Don't want to loose bookmarks, passwords, etc. by removing 32 bit version.

Attempting to download Firefox on MacBook Pro Monterey 12.2 through Safari. When I hit Download, a progress bar flashes briefly, then disappears. When I open Show Downloads in Safari, I get what you see in the first attachment. When searching for the file, I get a second message stating file has not been created (second attachment). Interestingly, I'm having exactly the same problem with Libre Office. I've checked all the settings I know in OS System Preferences and in Safari.

Since the update to FF 98.0 I cannot click on a .zip file & have it open to Windows File Explorer. It only allows me to download & save the .zip file and then extract the files from there. I have to click on dozens of these files per day for my job & would rather not have to save each .zip file & then extract the file contents. In Settings > Applications, .zip files are not on the list of file types or applications. Is there a way to add them to the list? Is there some other work-around? Thank you!
