My laptop died. I purchased a new one and pulled the SSD drive from the dead laptop and hooked it up to the new laptop with a SATA to USB cable and have access to the drive now. How do I pull all the information that was in Firefox (bookmarks, open tabs when laptop died, etc.) from the old drive to the new laptop?

I had Firefox 120.1 on a Windows 11 Pro 23H2 system and everything was fine, then today Firefox updated itself to version 122 and all my bookmarks / settings and saved passwords disappeared. When I went to the bookmark manager there were no backups to restore but when I searched the C: drive for "Bookmarks*.json*" I found dozens in the profile that Firefox is currently using (about:porfile shows my default and there is only one profile on the computer) and I copied the most recent one from a couple days ago and used the bookmark manager to restore it. However I've lost all my saved passwords and I absolutely need to get those back, how can I do that?

Dear Community,

Just like to ask how I could get Firefox to show a dark mode for all apps that I open, please? I know that changing the settings on Firefox to Dark makes the browser show only a dark mode. However, when I search for other sites, they show up as a white background. How can I change this, please?

Until the most recent update, which came along with a Microsoft update, I was able to stream Peacock.com but now I'm getting an error message that my system configuration isn't compatible with Peacock. I have also had issues with YouTube, which keeps telling me that I have to disable adblockers - which I'm not running. I had another unrelated problem that I fixed by doing a system restore to before the Microsoft update, so there should be no issues with that end of things. It has to be Firefox because I can still stream Peacock on Microsoft Edge.

So, does ANYONE have any idea how I can fix this problem? I much prefer using Firefox to Edge and I don't use Chrome.

Thanks.

Firefox has started hiding all tabs in a window except the active tab. This has happened in two different windows. I have no idea how to hide tabs and don't want to. How can I unhide the tabs. When I try to do it one by one, the first tab rehides when the 2nd one appears. Can I unhide multiple tabs at once? Do I have to unhide them one by one, and if so how? How do I stop Firefox from hiding tabs?

Hi,

I attend Berklee online and the learning environment has videos as well as empty spaces to write answers and text. Whenever I enter the empty space to write text, every press of the spacebar starts and stops multiple videos on that page.

Their strict advice is to use Chrome, but that is the last thing I want to do.

Good afternoon

I have been using your browser for a decade to autofill in the CGS Medicare site and it has been lovely and time saving. Roughly two or three weeks ago, it no longer populates information without a little prompting and then it is putting information in the wrong areas on the form. I have contacted I.T. with CGS and they state nothing has changed. A co-worker suggested I contact you to see if my browser could be fixed to autofill like it did before or to remove whatever update happened two or three weeks ago and go back to the older version.

I have disabled autofill and restarted my computer; then enabled it again and restarted my computer. It still has to be prompte in more areas to autofill and even then it will populate that information in the wrong area.

I hope you can follow my train of thought in trying to explain what is happening.

Any help to restore to the perfect way it was autofilling before would be much appreciated.

Thank you Theresa

Although strict privacy is set, I am able to logg into websites, although lock icon displays message "Connection verified by a certificate issuer that is not recognized by Mozilla"

Hello,

NOTICE: Currently using Firefox 120.0.1 "Update disabled by your system administrator" I am unable to update the browser, the computers are from the public library.

Like I state in the Subject, I configure the browser to strict privacy level, and I am able to visit any site I want. No problem. But on all of these, when I click the lock icon on the address bar I read "Connection verified by a certificate issuer that is not recognized by Mozilla." In fact, right now, I am visiting this website and I got that notice. View image "Firefox broser does not recognize the certificate issuer fortinet but I can visit the firefox suport website - Screenshot 2024-01-28 172732.png"

WOW... View the image "certificate issuer not recognized by Firefox - fortinet - when visiting support.firefox.com - Screenshot 2024-01-28 173041.png" for some of the info I get if I view more information about the certificate.

Then, after I logged out, the "Clear cookies and site data" link that appears after clicking the lock icon I mentioned before do not appear.

View the image "UNable to clear cookies and site data - proton.me - Screenshot 2024-01-28 141951 - edited.png"

In this same computer, I got the control "Clear cookies and site data." View image "able to clear cookies and site data - virustotal.com - Screenshot 2024-01-28 141825.png"

So more than one question:

I read other posts where users are unable to visit a website which has a certificate issued by an issuer that is not recognized by Mozilla. Why am I able to visit these websites?

What can I expect of the non appearing "Clear cookies and site data" link I described before?

Are these computers like totally hacked?

I'm a cybersecurity professional and I'm researching about Same Origin Policy, Cross Origin Resource Sharing and how firefox deal with those things. I've find out that versions before 102.1.0esr, cross-origin script GET requests used to attach cookies (Image 1), but in newer versions, it's not happening (Image 2). I checked the release notes but didn't find nothing about this change.

I would like to learn more about what changed and how Firefox is dealing with cookies, SOP and CORS.

Thanks!
