A while back, I accidentally clicked on "always block" in the popup when I received a notice of a potential cross-site script attack for a frequently visited site. Since then, whenever the site comes up in a search and i click on it, Firefox will not open it. Instead, I need to right-click, copy link, and paste in the address bar. I have tried to find information on how to undo this, but have been unsuccessful. Is there a list somewhere of blocked sites that I can unblock? Would appreciate any help. Thanks.

Firefox cannot find profile after copying from other computer

I followed the instructions on the support pages to transfer my profiles from an old W7 laptop to a new W10 one. After the copying of the profiles to the correct locations neither Firefox nor Thunderbird would start complaining that they could not find the profiles.

What I did (same thing for Thunderbird) 1. Opened Firefox troubleshooting on the old W7 laptop, opened the profile folder. 2. Closed Firefox 3. moved two levels up 4. copied the Profiles folder to a usb drive.

On new W 10 laptop 1. Opened Firefox troubleshooting on new W10 laptop, opened the profile folder. 2. Closed Firefox 3. moved two levels up 4. renamed the existing Profiles folder to Profiles OLD 5. copied the Profiles folder from the usb to the same correct location on the new laptop

When I tried opening Firefox on the new laptop it would not open complaining that it could not find the profile. Firefox had opened correctly previously.

Then when I renamed the moved Profiles folder to Profiles NEW and renamed Profiles OLD to Profiles, Firefox opened normally on the new laptop.

Identical procedure and result with the Thunderbird profile transfer.

What should I do?

Thanks.

I recently installed my OS and backup the entire profile folder of Firefox. When I put the key4 and logins file in to the fresh install there was only one password in it, the remaining passwords were gone. I also noticed that a new file (logins.json.corrupt) is created along with file(logins.json). I tried to paste the files again to fix it but same issue. I think the files are corrupt. Is there any way to fix it?

If you have an accurate fix for my version of Firefox (lord knows how to find it), please provide in straight forward English that those over 30 can understand.

Hi there,

I am running Windows 7 with Firefox 83.0.

I have two PDF fillable forms that have calculations that run. Basically you enter your mileage you drove and it adds up the mileage for each line you enter.

I have noticed that the form is fillable but none of the calculations run.

It works fine in chrome and internet explorer.

Hello,

I use windows FF and I dont use any sync etc.

When i bookmark any site (because I have many book marks already) I am trying to organize them better with folders and such.

The problem is when i bookmark a website today, or when I try to move a previous book mark FROM a current location like OTHER BOOKMARKS, or RECENTLY BOOKMARKS, or ADDITIONAL BOOKMARKS.....to a NEW location or folder, it moves the book mark as i want and that is great, however it leaves behind the original bookmark and if i delete the original bookmark it will ALSO delete the clone bookmark i just moved to a new location.

Obviously once i move a bookmark from X to Y, I want to only have 1 instance of the bookmark not 2 in 2 different areas......

When i move a bookmark, I am dragging to a new area,folder etc....or using the bookmark editor to drag it from x to y....

Please help......I am not sure why firefox does this or what maybe i am doing wrong or how to fix. Thanks

What can Y do to replace all my passwords into only one : - having something from the alphabet and some current number (eg ABC321) - which is only valid for a chosen period as chosen by a user (eg until March 2021) - that informs me by a message like "Be attentfull : your password is soon retired. Renew it soon" - that can be used on an old Pc with Microsoft Vista.... - ...and on a relative new laptop with Windows10 - also on a HuaWay if possible - when I am dying, the password should further exists until the password time is gone.

In this case I never have to make and hide a list where I can forget the hidden place or finding old (wrong) passwords or never forget what the other passwords were.
