I cannot find an old Firefox folder. I have looked in profile and found 2 logins.json files, dated 21.03 & 09.03, the earlier says corrupt, have copied both together with the sqlite file. How do I open these files to check them ? Tried Firefox in Safe Mode, still no logins. Help would be appreciated, thank you

Where did I see that article on XYZ. I'd like to regain a train of thought/investigation. Is bookmarks and history all there is? In reading about "Activity Stream" this seemed like the solution but it seems to lack an awareness of clustered, goal-directed activity. Is "Top Sites" and "Highlights" all there is to Activity Stream? Looking for some deeper integration/intelligence around re-displaying my history.

I've got Firefox in my apps folder but can't open it or drag it to my dock. The logo looks like our dvd player with an arrow pointing to the insert slot.

Every once in a while, I go back and try something that worked in older versions of FF -- accepting some cookies and not accepting others.

In the current version, 59.0.3, I go to options, security and scroll down, I've added yahoo to my Exceptions to "allow" rather than "allow for session" and then set the general setting "keep until they expire". Now, this setup seems to be a way to whitelist only those sites I want to allow cookies, expiring others when I close FF -- as that's the most control I now have, the "ask every time" being gone. However, when I close FF and re-open, it hasn't kept the yahoo cookies as the exception implies it should.

How can I customize which cookies stay past the session and which don't?

I installed Firefox for the new synchronization feature, both on my phone and on PC. On my phone the browser functions decently well, albeit extremely slow to search what I type in the bar at the top, usually requiring me to reintroduce it.

Anyway, the problem on my PC is sync always seems to be logged out, requiring me to retype my password (despite telling the browser to save whenever I do) and verify my email. I have done this about 10 times now, and as you can imagine its not pleasant.

Besides this, I have had the browser crash on me about 3 times, only to restart 5 seconds later with no message or indication as to what happened wrong, with the browser's settings reverted to the default (Yahoo search engine, etc.)

That about sums it up. I appreciate any help you can give me, and thanks in advance.

I recently got an email certificate online, and I am trying to export it from Firefox into Windows. I went to the certificate store in Firefox, exported it to my desktop in a PKCS12 file, and tried to open it in Windows, but Windows thinks the password I used is wrong. It doesn't matter what password I use, whether it's copied out of KeePass or a simple dictionary. Am I missing something?

This may be coincidence but I just added several Firefox tweaks listed at privacytools.io None of them seem like they could have any affect on this but ...

Now when I initialize FF it appears full height but only half the width of my screen.

So I pull it over to full width, close it, re-initialize, and it's still half width.

Rebooted, no change.

???

Backing up to a json or html file will save all my bookmarks except for the mobile ones I sync between my laptop and my phone. The jsonlz4 file in my profile folder also does not save mobile bookmarks. Sync by itself is usually enough to preserve all my bookmarks, but I made the mistake of installing FF ESR alongside regular FF which screwed everything up; it would have been nice to have had my complete bookmarks backed up at that point, so I could have restored all of them.

Btw, my laptop browser is spoofed: I'm using FF 60.0.1 on Linux Mint; I'm syncing my laptop with my android phone (FF 60.0.1 also).
