I've used Win.7 on computers and migrated Firefox info between them using MozBackup-1.4.10 for years. Just got new Win.10 computer and cannot get Firefox to look like it did on Win.7 even though it is same version. In particular, no bookmarks bar and can't find bookmarks anywhere. It's like MozBackup did nothing. Thanks for any help you can give.

Firefox browser on Linux Mint (cinnamon) 19.1

I am trying to make the transition from Google Chrome to Firefox.

Run into a problem with font and the lack of display quality.

Please look at the attached snapshots.

shot01.png = Online Microsoft OneNote: Chrome Browser. shot02.png = Online Microsoft OneNote: Firefox Browser.

See the obvious difference in display quality.

I have checked the font settings, default is set to display the web site default font.

Any ideas please? Thanks.

I've previously changed userChrome.css to have tabbar at the bottom of the toolbars, as explained in https://support.mozilla.org/it/questions/1186247. But now, after having updated FF from 60ESR to 68, I end up with the tabbar on the top, again. Googling for "-moz-box-ordinal-group" I get https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/-moz-box-ordinal-group where I read "Warning: This is a property of the original CSS Flexible Box Layout Module draft, and has been replaced in newer drafts." How can I restore my preferred layout (tabbar on the bottom) through userChrome.css? Thanks.

I recently created an account on Firefox using my current email address with AOL. When I accessed my profile page I discovered that two more profiles had been added, one is my gmail account and the other is my Cell Phone # (although my phone is not listed under devices), and the user name is a long stream of numbers and letters. I did not add these two profiles and cannot access them since I do not have their passwords. I want to remove them and I am just about ready to delete the one account I have control over. Please respond soon before this hacker does more damage.

Both my new windows and tabs are set to blank page.

When I change the background color under Preferences>Language and Appearance>Colors, my new tabs blank pages are in the color that I set, however my new windows blank pages are not (still the default white).

I know this is a very minor thing, but just wanted to see if this is intended behavior or is there a way to fix this. Tested it on my Mac and Windows machine, same results.

The FF set to a value of network.trr.mode=3, network.trr.bootstrapaddress=8.8.8.8 and netork.trr.uri=https://dns.google/dns-query I can resolution but if I change the dns resolver network.trr.bootstrapaddress=9.9.9.9 another DNS resolver it does not work.

Am I correct in thinking that the bootstrapaddress is to point to any DNS server capable of resolving the DOH domain? Because I found it only resolves for it own DOH.
