I rebooted my computer and all my bookmarks disappeared. I looked for instructions on line but they don't apply to my computer. It says to click on library then bookmarks then restore . I do not have those options. there is no restore button. Why don't they fix this problem. I have wasted an hour and still don't have my book marks back. I have logged in twice.

My Firefox wants to upgrade itself to version 79.

I'm now running version 73. Earlier this year Firefox auto-updated itself to version 74. Cors Everywhere did not work in version 74, and I need to use Cors Everywhere frequently. To get Cors Everywhere to work, I had to go back to version 73, and of course lost all my bookmarks, logins, etc.

So before allowing it to update to version 79, I'd like to know if Cors Everywhere works in version 79.

Thank you.

The second time I lost all my data(200 tabs, bookmark panel, pws, addons). My steps: 1. Sync all data into 1 firefox account from 1 device 2. Reinstall my OS on the same device. 3. Connecting back by logging in and pressing the sync button and... Blah! I see nothing. No synced tabs, no bookmark panel. At the same time I did this kinda operation with having connected 1 account to 2 virtual devices(1 - real OS, 2 - Virtualbox). So could you please explain how Firefox Sync works? Is there a way to use sync account as a keeper for tabs and bookmark panel without using 2 devices? Or other ways? Thanks!

I found multiple pages recently that cause problems with the network monitor in firefox developer tools. I attached an image as an example. The three requests are selected always as a "block". They seem to be somehow related but I do not find any documentation what their relation is. My educated guess (also see https://superuser.com/questions/1537396/what-is-the-reason-firefox-combines-multiple-requests-in-the-network-monitor) that it is HTTP/2 related. However I still do not get how to handle debugging in such circumstances. I'd like to see the individual requests and answers for debugging purposes. I do not find a way to reach that goal. Is it a technical restriction?

Ok, so apparently I have forgotten my master password. How I did this I have no clue since its the same password I use for everything, and I know its a bad idea, but I just wanted an extra layer in case someone stole my laptop.

So, since if I have forgotten my master password, that is the same as 99% of my other passwords, I CANNOT take the chance of just reseting it and losing all the others, cause surely I won't get them right. I know I won't be able to login into google they've refused to allow me access to my main account with them for months. I won't get into that stuffs just this stuff.

I've been reading through the site here, and have tried a thing or two but none of the questions really sound like what I need:

I've forgotten my master password, and I cannot reset it for fear of losing my other passwords which may have been forgot. I'm set as the default user and there are no other users for the computer or browser. Google has been a bear about letting me into my accounts there, so the fear of losing what I can access is real.

Thanks for reading, I appreciate what you guys are doing here in your free time. Let me know what you think, even if I'm screwed.
