I am running Unix Ubuntu 22.04 with Firefox 104.0.01 (64 bit). My Canon LBP 6230DW works fine in my word processor and in Chrome, but it does not show up in the Printer destination field when I am in Firefox. The only print option is to "Save as PDF." How do I get the Canon to be a print destination in Firefox?

This is my second request because I can't find my original question. jonzn4SUSE has asked me to upload print screens, which are attached. Carl ([email removed from public])

I’m locked out of all of my accounts because I can’t remember my firefox password and all records of it were lost to a corrupted drive. If I can’t access my 100s of accounts I’ve had for years because of firefox, I’m going to do something rash. I literally can’t even access my fucking email to prove it was me because I wanted to uP mY sEcUrItY and use randomly generated passwords. Help and help fast because I am sick with anger right now.

I have a new chromebook (Lenova Duet 3) I can install and use Firefox. I have had Dashlane (password keeper) working fine with Firefox for years. The Dashlane extensions work with Chrome, but I can't seem to get them to work with Frefox. The Chrome search engines choices are limited; ones that I never use with Firefox. Is there something in the Chromebook environment that limits firefox capabilities? (Am I looking for something that just is not possible?) Is there a work around? (Any Linux tricks?) I also have asked the same question of Dashlane, but have not heard back yet. My imperfect solution is use Chrome when it is a known website, and the password is recorded with Dashlane, and to use Firefox for new searches, where the choice of search engines is better.

Has anyone developed a search engine where there are no "sponsored" results. I understand that it would probably not be free.

My wife has an older Mac. About a week ago, a pop-up from Firefox told her to update her program. She loaded in the new one and when she tried to open it she got the message that her computer was too old for the update.

We had to reload the most recent update which had been running on her computer.

Now, none of her bookmarks show up and the bookmark toolbar will not display near the top of the screen as it used to.

None of help items online are of any use because what they say will show up on the screen (such as when you enter "about:profiles") is not what shows up on her screen.

Is there any way to recover her bookmarks, passwords and other saved data, please?

I recently upgraded from 108.0.2 (64-bit) to 109.01 but it slowed my PC down to the point of uselessness. Nothing else changed application or OS-wise. PC, OS and all Apps are current & up to date. Defrag, Cache Clear a& all similar utilities run on scheduled basis prior to upgrade and everything A-OK.

Is this a Known Issue? If so, is there a fix coming

Question. How do I restore a profile from windows.old?

Details: Yesterday Windows 10 Failed (yet again , no surprise) Explorer.exe kept locking up and crashing at 1096 threads making it impossible to load/browse anything on my computer. After relogging into the OS I had about 1 minute to do anything before failure happened. (this while windows loads all the bloatware simultaneously which slows down access greatly) In short I could barely load/run mozbackup

Previously every time a windows OS failed I just restored firefox with mozbackup. Apparently that no longer works for firefox and has in fact been out of development for a decade. (tears flowing) The last time this happened ( 3 years ago like clockwork with any windows OS since XP) I moved both the profile folders to their respective locations from windows.old roaming/local to the roaming/mozilla and local mozilla folders respectively.

This no longer works and in fact causes firefox to not function at all. Since I need the passwords locked in firefox to access certain sites like hotmail.com and recover other things for my OS I am screwed. I have no Idea what idiotic concept cause the inability to manually port your profile but I need a workaround asap.

I cannot even log into mozilla.org properly without it either and was forced to use a gmail account just to post this

This has been going on for a while now, since I want to switch from a certain popular browser to Firefox which I have on another computer, I tried to install Firefox Developer Edition first as I just prefer it and it has some features of which I use sometimes.

However, when I tried to open the browser, it shows a window for like a millisecond then closes. I've also tried with a normal install of Firefox and the same thing happens. I've looked into the Profiles and here is what I've found:

A folder called startupCache (empty) And a file called .startup-incomplete (empty)

Here's what I get when I install dev edition and try to run it:

Two folders, one is dev-edition-default, and the other is dev-edition-default-a very big number

I'll provide a screenshot in this post so you understand all the profile folders.

[https://imgur.com/a/PERMib0 https://imgur.com/a/PERMib0 ] https://imgur.com/a/PERMib0 In dev-edition-default I have the same two files/folders as before, and one more: cache2 which contains the following:

A folder called doomed (empty) And a folder called entries (it has files in it)

In the dev-edition-default-verybignumber I have just startupcache and .startup-incomplete.

If anyone has any idea how to fix neither of my Firefoxes stating up, please let me know!

I'm trying to migrate to the newest version of Firefox on an old installation of Fedora. I've downloaded and unpacked the installation files but can't identify the installer. All I probably need is the name, as I know how to make it executable and run it once I know what file it is.

Running Win10 and latest Firefox browser. Trying to get rid of 'Your browser is being managed by your organization' Followed Regedit instructions - only default is listed - no policy. Looked in Mozilla Firefox in Program Files & Program Files (x86) - no policies.json in Distribution. Even did a search in those subfiles - nothing. So how do I get rid of this? I was searching 'Broiling Frigidaire Induction' and one of the videos corrupted my original Firefox. I needed a hard stop to get our of that. I deleted the app and reloaded, and I keep getting the 'Browser managed...' message. Bummer!
