I lost a whole Ext4 partition, however it appears that there is chances to recover raw data from my disk. There is a very important profile within the lost partition that contains very important bookmarks. Now if I want to use file carving techniques for recovering the lost data, which formats or text patterns may help to identify the data? Can I specify lz4 and sqlite formats? what are the other formats? Which text pattern can I use to recover the bookmark files using grep tool over raw disk data?

Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

Hi, I have two questions 1. I use Linux Debian. I had to reinstall Firefox, but I'm not sure where to extract the file to. I've been using my downloads folder, but when I shutdown it wont start again and I have to reinstall. 2. This message appears often ( libavcodec may be vulnerable or is not supported and should be updated to play video) but I don't know where to find an update. Thanks

Was mysteriously logged out of sync on desktop for no reason, so had to log back in (had to reset password). logins.json.corrupt file was located but it was EMPTY! Where are all my passwords? Why is FFX this bad that it just disappears all my logins for no reason? This is unacceptable! How is this possible?

I still have the logins on my android phone, and I turned off sync to make sure they don't get wiped (I noticed the sync on the tablet also wiped my logins once I got back into the broken desktop sync). So how the heck do I now xfer the logins from android to desktop????

Once I recover my pwds, I am dropping FFX for good. This is bad. The most important feature is broken, and it's a fatal flaw.

Say what you like about Chrome/Google, but they've never managed to just wipe my entire sync history like this.

How can I either import in on Firefox in Linux since there seems to be no option here or find and decrypt the password? Thank you

I see that at some point, probably the latest Firefox update, nearly all addons are disabled, and have no ability to re enable. Just as an example, "Downthemall". The "..." menu only has remove or report. Same for Adblock plus, back is close, dozens of others. Go to the page, eg https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/downthemall/ and install turns into "enable" which does nothing as well.

Hello!

When I open a new tab (about:home), autofocus is transferred to the address bar. I need to click on something to remove focus. I want to disable this behavior.

After searching the Internet, I came across only similar problems, but without solutions. I did not find anything in about:config.

Is there a way to disable this autofocus without patches and extensions?

How to share the tabs across all open windows?

Hi, I work in GNU/Linux + Gnome with several tabs (around 100). They have different context (research, personal, related to a course, and work; are some examples). I use several windows with several tabs each. I would like to have one group per window, to be able to close a window and not losing the tabs it had, (to close all the windows and be able to reopen them).

I cannot find a way to organize my tabs in such a way that windows don't isolate their tabs. There are plenty of add-ons to group tabs. But all of them end up hiding/unhiding the tabs of only the current window.

It looks that the underlying architecture is this: OS has Firefox. Firefox has Windows. Windows have tabs. Tabs are manageable only in the window they belong to.

Therefore, every window is only aware of its own group of tabs.

What I am looking for is a different approach, or at least the illusion of it: OS has Firefox Firefox has Tabs. Tabs are manageable, from any instance of a window.

Therefore, the window is only a viewer that is aware of all the tabs.

The plug-ins: Panorama Tab Group, Simple Tab Groups, and similar work a bit, but if I open a new window, and do some browsing, the old window does not know anything in the new window.

Is there a setting/plugin that can solve this problem? maybe I am missing some setting or I just don't know how to use the plugins... Thanks for your time. Best

I'm running Ubuntu 16.04, and every time I start firefox, it gives me the "Choose User Profile" prompt, even with "Use the selected profile without asking on startup" selected. My about:profiles has only one profile (which is set to default), and both my profiles.ini file and installs.ini file contain only that profile. The profiles.ini file also has StartWithLastProfile=1. It's not really that big a deal, but it is annoying and any help would be appreciated.

This is not site specific and really a bothersome nuisance. I asked about this before and a suggestion by someone fixed it but I can't find that post.
