Hi, I'm in a little bit of a chock... Firefox updated and recommended me to use a new profile. Sadly I chose that option and now I've lost all my previous settings. Panic! Is there ANY way I could get my saved passwords and favorites back from the previous install?!

Greatful for help here...

Hi, I have a lot of bookmarks that are specifically made to always open in a specific container.

After updating to 121 I'm always asked if I want to open the URL in a container.

How can I get rid of the question and just always assume "Yes"?

Thanks, Henrik

For the past week or two, all links sent to me via email open to blank pages. In other words, I click a link in an email and am taken to a completely white, blank page in a new tab of my Firefox browser. I've tried clearing my cache but that didn't resolve the issue. I figure it's time to ask for some help with this strange, frustrating issue so that I can open links emailed to me. I've attached a screenshot of one of the emails this happens with. It's been happening with a company called Geru as well as the one in the screenshot, but I've found that links from the Epoch Times for instance work fine. Please advise, thanks!

Hello, I want your help! Because I want to change the appearance of checkboxes to toggles without affecting the other checkboxes (like rounded checkboxes) using userChrome.css in Firefox.

I'm not friend with CSS, because I don't know much about programming. So, please write me a correct CSS code in a comment.

The attached screenshot will explain my demands:

I recently downloaded Tree Style Tab. I still see the horizontal tab bar. I would like to hide it. However, I have tried just about every answer I could find on Mozilla, Google, Reddit, and any other websites that offered solutions. Nothing has worked since the last update. This includes the "type in about:config, toggle to true, open profile folder, create userChrome.css file, copy and paste xyz code, save, and restart Firefox" route.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello, Ive recently switched my primary browser from opera GX, to Mozilla Firefox. Since then I've adjusted the settings to my liking, one of which was the search engine. I chose google chrome, and it works when I open a new tab, However, When I open a new window of firefox, it always opens Bing. This is a small problem, yes, but its simple issues like this that dissuade me from wanting to use firefox at all, I would like to solve this issue, but Ive searched for answers, and there aren't any. If you help me fix this, I will keep firefox. Otherwise, I'll chose a browser that gives me the amount of control that I want. I've also attached a photo of the startup screen of firefox.
