I'm setting up a user on a new computer. I've exported her bookmarks from her old computer. On the new computer I go to Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks > (select bookmarks toolbar) > Import and Backup > Import bookmarks from HTML. I browse to my folder containing the bookmarks.html file, Open it, and nothing.

I've tried all the suggestions I can find. Places Database Verify Integrity gives me: > Task: checkIntegrity + The places.sqlite database is sane + The favicons.sqlite database is sane > Task: checkCoherence + The database is coherent etc. Opening the bookmarks.html file shows a list of bookmarks. That file is not empty.

This shouldn't be this hard. How do I accomplish this?

I am using Firefox-ESR 115.6.0esr (64-bit) on Debian GNU/Linux 11 and I am trying to figure out how to get firefox to clear all the cookies except for a select few.

I had an issue where if I reboot my system and then re-opened firefox, it would automatically open my previous tabs, including my protonmail account, which was good. But if I tried to open a new tab for my protonmail account, I would get hit with a login page. This happened even though I had another active protonmail session going on in the existing tab.

I contact Protonmail and they linked me to this question and I tried to follow it but noticed something odd. the selected solution says > Make sure you use "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" and not "Clear history when Firefox closes" to clear the cookies as the latter doesn't honor exceptions.

But, on my firefox, clicking "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" automatically results in "Clear history when Firefox closes" also being clicked and I can't seem to undo the association.

Is that answer outdated?

Any suggestions for how I can get Firefox to run on this older computer?

I have changed the password for my account and logged in. Tried to logout and login again but just 9 passwords is found, extremely frustrating!

Anyone got a clue what has happened?

While on MacOS 10.14 (Mojave) Firefox desktop updates transitioned to an ESR channel. This was expected and worked just fine. I recently updated the MacOS to 12.7 (Monterey) but Firefox desktop updates are still on the ESR channel.

When I go to Firefox -> About Firefox it says the desktop browser is up to date and that it's on the Extended Support Release. This ESR is only good until September 2024. I don't think it's supposed to be on the ESR channel since the OS is now 12.7, rather, it should just be on a "regular" update channel. Is that correct?

If no, will updates for MacOS Monterey cease in September 2024 too? If yes, how do I get back to the regular updates?

TIA

Hi, I have the problem that Firefox restarts after a crash, re-opening exactly the same windows that were open at the time of the crash, which most of the time reproduces the crash.

I want Firefox to restart with an empty window, like it is configured.

I have read a support entry that hints setting browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash to false, which does NOT to the job (anymore).

Im trying to halt fingerprint tracking, whoever designed Firefox's privacy.resistFingerprinting rule makes fingerprinting even more prevalent.

With privacy.resistFingerprinting set to FALSE, my resolution is reported : 1920x1080x24, set to TRUE its 1920x968x24

1 in 6 browsers has resolution 1920x1080x24 1 in 6000 browsers has resolution 1920x968x24

Who in Firefox decided this config rule? and what is the logic behind it? Looks like intentional sabotage to make peoples browsers more trackable.

Whilst leaving resistFingerprinting set to TRUE, How can I force my resolution to the more generic 1920x1080x24?

Is there another setting in about:config I can change? if there isnt, where can I request this feature? Id rather not resort to an extention for something so small like this.

I am once again having issue with Hotmail and Firefox. It's working perfectly fine in Pale Moon, but it's gone totally blank in Firefox. It worked totally fine yesterday, but today I cannot access ANYTHING in Hotmail. Firefox says it's up to date, but usually when I start having issues with Hotmail, it's because Firefox needs to update. Please help fix this problem! All other websites work fine! Thank you!

I am unable to login to any website using the "Sign in with Apple ID" option when offered. The login window opens normally, the username and password fields render properly, but then as soon as I hit enter or click login. The confirmation/page with the two buttons one grey one blue that says "continue" appears for a split second and then vanishes. I have turned of all forms of content blocking and the issue still persists.

I recently installed firefox on a new computer and it will not access the internet. Any access request gets the message "Hmmm. We're having trouble finding that site." We cannot connect to the server.... It says to check that fiefox has permission to access the web, but I do not know how to do that. How can I get Firefox to access the web? I do not want to have to use different browser, but will switch unless this is resolved.

When I click on a Firefox menu (File, Edit, View, etc.) or the hamburger menu, or a drop-down menu on a web page, the menu appears. Then, when I move the mouse to hover over the menu, the menu vanishes. If, instead, I hold down the mouse button, I can move over the menu without it disappearing.

I'm using a focus-follows-mouse window manager (VTWM) and I think, somehow, Firefox is getting a focus change message when the mouse moves onto the menu. I think this because of the way the Firefox titlebar flickers from showing it's the active window to the inactive window, then active again, once the menu disappears.

Please advise.

Thanks, Richard
