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...

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!

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.

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!

I hope migration is what I am seeking. I've not used my Desktop for a couple of years. I used my iPhone during that time. I installed my desktop today. I sent myself, on my phone, a number of messages during the past two days and want to view/manipulate/edit them on my desktop.

I have tried everything I can think of, but cannot see those messages. All the messages I see beging with one week ago. Any ideas? I hope I hope. Many thanks.

Hi

I'm guessing this is because of the latest update to Firefox, but every time a download finishes, the pop-up box for the downloads keeps coming up. I guess this is considered intuitive to let you know a download has finished, but I could do without it. I find it a bit distracting and it gets in the way. Is there a specific option that can disable it in the config?

Thanks

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
