lost previos settings after reinstal

After an issue with FF not showing websites properly, I decided to uninstall it according to the instructions mentioned under https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems, section4.

After downloading the latest version and installing that, it was mentioned a new profile was made, but I could import or sync with the old profile to restore settings, passwords, etc.

For some or other reason importing this does not work the way it was supposed to, so I am now stuck with a fresh installation with all previous settings being lost.

Is there a solution, please? Help is appreciated. Thanks

I recently had to change the email address that I have had for many years because Vodafone decided unilaterally no longer to support the sub-domain.

I changed from: [email]hoof.demon.co.uk

to: [email]@hoofratings.co.uk

Having registered my new email address, I tried to get into my pocket list but all the pages saved over several years have gone and I am having to start again from scratch.

I tried to get in by using the old email address, but of course that is no longer recognized.

The new email address simply gets me to a virgin pocket.

Is there any way I can get my legacy pocket back and accessible under the new email address?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Dear audience

I have troubles that when I copy Firefox profile to another computer, the web extensions does not work.

Sometimes helps to restart Firefox to safe-mode and then back to normal. But always works when on a new computer I disable extensions and enabled them back on.

If I remember correctly, this behavior started with Firefox 68.

OS: Windows 10 Firefox: 77.0.1, 64bit, English

Do anyone know why this is happening, and hot to correct it? Is there any preference that should be modified?

Thank you and cheers

How do I install Firefox on a new Windows 10 PC?

I have an older PC that I have been using with Win 7 as its OS. It's still there on one of the three HDDs that's in the PC. I have since added a fourth drive, which is a WD Blue SSD which is 560 MB/s big, and has Windows 10 installed and running on it, when I start up this PC.

How do I go about replacing the Microsoft software with Firefox and Thunderbird? The Win 10 software is different than Win 7 so I don't know how to use very well. And the Win 10 instructions don't exactly match up with the Win 10 that is installed on my PC, so if some-body could list some of the steps that are more accurate than what MS has given, I would appreciate it.

I should have mentioned that the uneducated answer provided could not even be replied to. A good way for the uneducated robot to hide, you get one try and that’s it. Then as I said they moved on to something easy and that does not require any brain power. Mozilla might be around for a while longer, however if this is the way they want to treat clients they may not last too long.

The Firefox Installer is WAY too simple for my needs. How? There isn't any "Custom Installation" or Advanced" option. When you open the installer, it just installs Firefox. What I want is something to let me choose where to install Firefox. Anyone know how I can do this? I really like firefox, but the installer is WAYYY too simple, please make an advanced options menu, and tell my WHY you made the installer so SIMPLE. How can we change if it creates a start menu folder, or desktop icon? We cant! Please make the installer more advanced, can someone PLEASE tell me how to change the installation location?
