My download library window used to display files well over a year old, everything I have saved since the last time I deleted all browser history. Recently, everything older than six months was no longer displayed. The files are still there, I just have to search for them. Now it no longer shows anything older than 4 months. "Show all history" does not work. Is there a way to restore that list?

I have multiple Bookmark folders. I want to export (and then import) just ONE of the folders to another computer.

When I go through the EXPORT BOOKMARKS TO HTML process the html document created contains ALL 18 FOLDERS even though at the time of creating the document, at the bottom of the export menu page in the "NAME" slot it showed just the name of the folder I wanted to export.

As far as I know there is no way to edit the html document to delete the unwanted folders. If there is, please share the information.

Thank you for your assistance.

There are a million support articles on this and other sites that show all the steps to importing your passwords from Chrome to Firefox, and they usually include a screenshot that is identical to the one I've included, except for they also have a box you can check to import passwords. I successfully imported my cookies, browsing history, and bookmarks, but there was no passwords box for me to check and I haven't been able to import my passwords. Why is it that option not showing up for me?

I get this rubbish: Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.facebook.com because this web site requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.facebook.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the web site, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the web site’s administrator about the problem.

How can I stop Firefox from all website security warnings and blocks? Firefox is almost getting useless due to this blocking

Firefox is far too extreme in blocking access to websites preventing me from browsing for "connection" and "security certificate" so-called "issues/errors". It almost regularly attempts to block me from accessing websites such as, for example, CNN (!!) for security certificate issues, and in many cases absolutely will not allow me to browse to some websites. This gets to the point where I have to switch to a different browser to visit websites I have been using for >>decades<<. How can I **completely** shut off ALL Firefox security monitoring to allow ME to decide what I want to view?

Just FYI, I have NO PROBLEM with websites tracking my visits, I actually prefer that.  As well, I have NEVER seen any problems with security certificates endangering me at any of the websites I view, whether the website's certificate is current or not.  I am quite capable of judging for myself whether a website poses any danger to my PC, and I have an AV utility that does an excellent job of protecting my PC, I do NOT need any help from Firefox. I never visit websites that would even remotely present a danger to my system, I am not into games, dark web idiocy, or any other such dangerous sites and I know what to look for to decide the reliability of any site I visit.  I have NEVER, in over 25 years, been hacked or endangered, so I need no help from Firefox.

Thanks for any help,

Pete B

Firefox 68. A web site I visit daily always shows a popup asking me to accept cookies ("aceptar y continuar navegando"). It's annoying.

In options, I've selected "standard" for the cookie policy. I've emptied the cache, used the "forget this site" in the history for the web pages where the message pops up, and reloaded Firefox. It still prompts me.

Here's one of the pages it happens on: https://www.antena3.com/series/el-secreto-de-puente-viejo/avances/ Click "avances" or "momentos" and a large black box should pop up on the bottom of the screen, with the "aceptar y continuar navegando" in the lower right in a red rectangle.

Essentially, I want to tell the web site that I accept having cookies and have the web site remember my answer for the future.

Since the end of August I have been fighting with Sync. I did a Firefox update on one of my laptops and it seems to have erased my saved logins. Since I have several computers it proceeded to sync the lack of passwords with all my other machines. I do have saved profile info from before the problem and so I pasted the profile info into the "new" firefox profile and all my passwords come back until it reconnects to sync and erases them back to where I started. I'm assuming that one of the machines I have is causing this. I've got 9 machines on the same sync. Any advice to help solve this would be appreciated. My bookmarks are fine and the usernames seem to be good. It's just the passwords. I saw a thread about AVG causing some problems but none of my machines are using AVG.
