I currently back up most of the files on my computer with a program that watches files and uploads them to cloud whenever they change. I'm wondering if this would be an effective way to back up my Firefox profiles, given that I usually have Firefox open.

I've noticed the article on (manually) backing up profiles says to close Firefox prior to copying the profile folder. Is that just to prevent users from getting tripped up by the lock file? Or is there another reason for it?

Hello,

My questions concerns the "Remove Folder" selection.

I right-clicked a folder on the bookmarks drop-down menu, and accidentally selected remove folder. Does this mean that the folder has been deleted or does it mean that it has been collapsed and the constituent book marks have been moved elsewhere (other bookmarks, bookmark toolbar, etc).

If the folder has in fact been deleted, is there any way of retrieving it?

Thank you for your help.

Hello guys. I'm using RPi 4 8gb w/ Raspberry Pi OS latest version and while I'm taking my course the videos are not playing(I tried in Firefox ESR and Chromium). I already ask for support to Udemy Support and they told me that the problem was not on their part. I tried researching the problem but i can't seem to find the right solution so I came here hoping someone would help me fix the issue.

I hope I make my statement clear to you because English is not my native language. Thank you.

Hi everyone!

When I browse the web with Firefox, it happens that the system becomes completely unresponsive. Some web pages seems to make Firefox using a lot of RAM and write a lot on the hard drive. I cannot actually say much more, because it not even possible to login in a console. The system is too slow and the console login times out... Firefox (or Web Content) writes wildly on the hard drive.

I used the Firefox provided by my Linux distribution (Linux Mint), but also the one downloaded from mozilla.org. The problem seems to be less frequent for the second, but it happend nevertheless.

The point is that this problem with Firefox happens sometimes, for example, when I forget the browser open on somehow demanding webpage (like in newspapers where there are a lot of media, graphics, and so on).

A point is also that I cannot replicate this "bug". If now I browsed the same pages that made the mess, nothing would probably happen.

I thought it had to do with the swap, but the system hanged both when the swap space was enabled and when it was disabled.

I saved a copy of the profile (and the cache) after the last crash, if they could be useful. The last time I had actually to force the shutdown of the computer, because there was no way to regain control over it.

Any ideas?

Thank you for your answers!

Greetings,

Today, I went to access my Bookmarks, & found them "Empty", other wise "Missing"!

I found the "How to recover missing Bookmarks" topics, & that did bring back,what I consider to be My "Permanent Books", bu the section called "Other Bookmarks" will not come back, no matter how many times I go through the "Restore Bookmarks".

I Absolutely need that section to be restored, for I had many files in that section that I updated daily, that I planned to move to the "Bookmarks Section".

How can I get get this section restored?

Long time User of Firefox. Everyone day, one of the first sites I read is WSJ.com. Recently (now running 89.0 Firefox) the WSJ.com website has been totally jumbled. I cross checked it on Chrome, where it was working fine. I have reported this to WSJ.com, and now also to Firefox. Is there a new setting requirement in Firefox 89.0 for that page? This is the only regular site I visit where this is occurring.

Any insights?

I am running the latest version [89.0 (64-bit)] and I have 7 extensions enabled and I "had" a custom theme. Now I have nothing and do not know when they all disappeared but believe it was in the past 10 days. I verified that all the extensions are activated.

I reviewed the customizer but none of my extensions were ever listed there. How do I find and restore them?
