Hello

I have been using firefox sync for a long time to migrate between PC to PC

My firefox sync profile is full of old stuff and I would like to clean up my settings by wiping out my firefox sync settings and starting fresh.

However, before doing that I wish to export all my data/settings/password/cookies/bookmarks and everything, so files on my computer.

Files that I can read in notepad and inspect. See which settings I have in there and decide which settings I want to put back in my new installation.

I have found a locked question about this on this forum

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1065938

It mentions two plugins for this purpose

FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension)

OPIE

Unfortunately and worryingly, they have been removed from the firefox addon store

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/febe/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/opie/

I found a wikipedia article about FEBE

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefox_Environment_Backup_Extension a very old link to download a probably broken version https://febe.en.softonic.com/

and a reddit thread about FEBE which states that there is no equivalent and that it is not possible to export firefox settings anymore

https://old.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/t2zmjb/febe_alternatives/

as for OPIE, I am unable to find explanation of what it was, where it went or who used it

I know that my profile is stored in

C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\4vdt083m.default-release

However the files and structure in that folder are inscrutable

I would like to have control over the settings of my browser, what they are, to save them and modify them on my own terms.

I would like to export about:config completely to a regular plain text file, edit them and import them back in.

Ok. The update downloaded 2 1/2 days ago. I've used Firefox since that download. It didn't install until now. 2 1/2 days later. Why the long delay? And why don't you have something show up in the banner or toolbar that designates that an upload to Firefox is happening? Now, we all have to guess why Firefox is behaving slow and erratic, close and re-open, and check for version.

Hi there

This seems to be an known issue.

I deinstalled my Firefox and it created autmatically Desktop\Firefox\old data

I want to transfer my old data (esp. for my PW+Logins) and it goes nowhere

I found the files keys4 and login, copied to my actual Folder (after reinstalling). But it doesnt do anything.

I also copied the whole "old data" Folder to the new directory and overwrote it. Didn't help either.

Is there any way to get my old Logins/PW from this old data Folder or is it just a wast of time ?

Thank you for helping.

Best,

Firefox on MacOS, today upgraded to the latest version and GUI font is completely unreadable, looks like some kind of arabic font. I deleted, reinstalled older version (which is OK) and automatic upgrade crated unreadable GUI again. SOmehow GUI font in latest release is screwed up. We pages render OK. But I am unable to change any settings as I cannot read anything. this is MacOS 13.6.3 on M1 mac. I have US version of MacOS with standard font setup, nothing special or unique. May be one thing, I have installed US English and also Czech language. But US is default. No other app seems to have issues.

My old computer crashed. I have the hard-drive in an external case and have it connected to my new computer. I installed firefox on my new computer, but I can't figure out how to get the passwords from the previous profile to my new profile. I have located the files on the old hard drive, but import will not work. Is there anything I can do?

I made my account via the ‘create w google account’ option a few years ago, I can still access my morzilla account through this option, but I can’t sign in in browser, just on the website. It says the password (the one that logs me in via my google acc) is incorrect. I really don’t wanna reset my password, since keeping my data is the only reason I’m still on Firefox.
