Without using Sync, what is the easiest way to transfer my Firefox passwords from my old Mac (running OS X 10.6.8) to a new Mac (running 10.15.1)?

Is it as simple as moving the old logins.json and key3.db files from the old Firefox Profile folder to the new Firefox Profile folder?

Can I copy the old Firefox Profiles folder and replace the Profile folder in the new Mac with a copy (to get all my bookmarks & passwords)?

I've been using Firefox for years but this morning it stopped working. the little firefox button just kept moving left-right and never found the page. Eventually I gave up and uninstalled firefox but when I tried to reinstall it, it states that firefox was previously installed and allows me to reinstall. when I do that it always gives an error message that it was unsuccessful.

I had this problem 2 years ago and somebody helped me fix it as follows:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. (2) In the search box above the list, type or paste URLB and pause while the list is filtered (3) Double-click the browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

HOWEVER --- I don't seem to have browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled in my new version 74.0. What happened to it? Does it have a new name now?

Note that I tried in Options / Preferences / Search

    I unchecked "Show search suggestions in location bar results

In Options / Preferences / Privacy

   I uncheck each of the boxes in the Location Bar section (History, Bookmarks, Open tabs).

After Firefox update, when opening an ebay item from the search list all photos & text go to the left side, layout not normal

A day ago I did the Firefox update to 75.0. Since then I have had trouble viewing ebay items. After you do a ebay search a list of items show up. When you open an item from a search list, you get a photo of the item usually on the left side and a description below the photo item. However, below and after the description everything including other seller photos and text are on the left side of the page. Normally they are across the page from the left side to right side. But now the layout is all on the left side. Everything is against the left side only and very hard to read. For many years I have never run into this problem before. I signed off and restarted Ebay with same problem. Looked at my son's computer and the ebay layout looked correct like like mine use to. I also opened up my google chrome browser and signed onto ebay. The ebay photos and text were correctly located on the page. So it appears that the recent update to firefox will not display the correct layout format in ebay. Can I download to the previous version of firefox? I 'm using latest Firefox browser 75.0 and running Windows 10. I attached a screen shot photo.

On my old computer, it seems I did not set up a Mozilla account. I have saved the logins.json and key3.db and saved them online. The most recent version of Firefox does not use the key3 file. Is there anyway to convert these files so they can be read by the current Firefox? Or failing that, plaintext?

I want to use Firefox as my default browser and have it installed on my laptop. My current default browser is Chrome. When I click on Firefox in the start menu, the user account control window pops up and asks if I want to allow Firefox to make changes to my computer. Click yes, and it just continues to ask if I want to make changes but never opens.

I am running Windows 10 Pro which was recently upgraded from Windows 7 Pro.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

When downloading a file I always have to open it from the browser, unless it will appear as damaged. For example, after downloading a document "Study.doc" and NOT opening it from Firefox I always have two files in the Downloads folder — "Study.doc" which size is 0 kb and "Study.doc.part" which is exactly the size of the document. Therefore I cannot move it without first opening it even if I don't want to.
