Either I'm a dork or the instructions that I have found are not very clear. I have been trying for several days to transfer my settings from my desktop to a new laptop. I have gone to the %appdata%\mozilla\firefox\profiles page until I'm blue in the face. I transferred a directory called "m80s2e9e.default" from the profiles directory on the desktop to the %appdata%\mozilla\firefox\profiles directory on the laptop but keep getting "Firefox profile cannot be loaded" error. What am I doing wrong? Thanks, Dale Webb

Firefox is making itself a "pain..." again. It is now unhappy I am using an OLD PROFILE and wants me to use/go to a new one.

Your advice? Of course I hesitate as going to rel 87.0 got me into this trouble in the first place by losing EVERYTHING and forcing me to create a new profile, while "hiding" everything and started me from scratch. So now again, "I hesitate". I am almost 84 yo and I cant keep trying to recover FIREFOX bookmarks, add-ons...history.. keeps losing with every release.

Your advice? TRY to get at least, the bookmarks I recovered to a "new" profile or ignore FIREFOX and keep using my old working profile? Anyone find a way to "recover" lost ONETAB URL's?

Hi All,

I have successfully deployed and configured Firefox to my company through Intune however I was wondering if it is possible to alter the installed Desktop/Start Menu icons to a custom .ico so the end users don't associate it with a browser but thier web based application.

In Intune I can only change the deployed Company Portal app icon but cannot alter the default Desktop/Start Menu icon. I know I can do this manually for the Desktop Icon but for 1200+ users this is not fees able to do manually

thanks

I am not new to Mozilla or Firefox as my first version was 1.0 in ~ 1998. I rarely use the current version of Firefox as; it never works 'out of the box', one has to learn to use the 'new features' by trial and error as there are no instructions of the 'changes'..... Being BUGGED for weeks every second to "upgrade", they wore me down. I tried to install rel 87.0. I got a message warning that using an older release would be disastrous and the two options was “EXIT or CREATE A NEW PROFILE". I choose EXIT. IT REFUSED TO CONINUED. It only accepted "NEW PROFILE". After 87.0 came up, EVERYING WAS GONE, BOOKMARKS, HISTORY, ADD-ONS....and an hour later trying to customize the toolbars.... AND features like the old "+" TO ADD A NEW TAB.... IT REALLY "GOT MY 'GOAT'. [A NICER FORM OF HOW I FELT ABOUT MOZELLA/FIREFOX PERSONNEL] and rel 87.0 There are NO actual instructions on how to go to your old profile which MIGHT let you see, restore all the crap a NEW PROFILE LOST. Now I am blank and lost all the time I spent trying to customize 87.0 hours ago. AM I THE ONLY ONE FRUSTRATED WITH "MOZELLA" And its "personnel"?

ANY ADVICE ON HOW TO RECOVER ALL MY "HISTORY" I LOST WITH THIS 87.0 FIASCO? Or am I SCREWED.

Firefox bugged me for weeks to "upgrade to the new release". Then Firefox got wonky so I thought, OK, cant be tooo bad... Instead of just upgrading to a new release, it started me back to 1998 when I converted from NETSCAPE to FIREFOX 1.0. It blew away the last Previously 22 years and made me start EVERYTHING from scratch.

IF I remember correctly FIREFOX used to leave your PROFILE, CONFIG in place and just update the "code". BUT this time, it wiped or hide all my BOOKMARKS, ADD-ONS... I thought I could find my old PROFILE but could not.

Can someone help me get BACK TO ALL MY "STUFF" LIKE BOOKMARKS, ETC? I really USED to like the ADD-ON ONE TAB until now as it "says" EXPORT AND IMPORT but all those URL'S just disappeared and ONE TAB does not bother to tell us WHERE they store them on my PC.

I "thought" IMPORT meant "bring them back" but not to "ONE TAB". My dilemma now is, I really dislike Chrome, Edge.. now I dislike FIREFOX too.

Hello,

The sites of my bank and from the town administration made notes that my Firefox browser was old and should be updated. I downloaded from the Mozzilla site the new Firefox for Windows 10, uninstalled Firefox and installed the new one. Then again these sites noted that my browser was old. Again I uninstalled Firefox completely and then I found out that ALL the files were not deleted but some kind of hidden. In Windows Verkenner there were no files to be found but my firewall found them all, but they had no size, no date, no digital signature at all.

Then I deceded to do a test. In the firewall I switched all the rights of the "deleted" files into "forbidden access". Then again made a new installation with the new installation file. It proceded as normal. But then it apeared that again the same old version of Firefox was present again.

My question is: what is happening here.

Best wishes and thank you, Han Benes

I have a virtual w10x64 machine which I need to play old flash content on a specific (trusted) website which is the only one allowed in mms.cfg and which does not use https. With the latest update to 78.9 FF does not open the flash content and the pages anymore. So I reverted to 78.8 but the auto-update always intercepts.

How can I disable the auto-updates for good? Is there possibly a policy for this?

I think the FF programmers need better imagination on specific scenarios before they impose so called "security features" on the users and break their processes.

This particular site (donjon.bin.sh) and others like it have a feature that generates a slightly different image than the one generated by its randomizer, in this case a D&D map for the players that doesn't have the same info as the one for the DM. There is no online version of the player map that can be viewed, it can only be downloaded via the "Player's Map" button (pictured). When I click the button, the pictured dialog box opens up, but no matter what settings I input in the dialog, the "OK" button remains unclickable. There does not seem to be another way for me to download this image within Firefox, since there is not a rendered image on the page for me to right click -> save.

updated Firefox and lost everything, I can get over no bookmarks but what I don't understand is the distortion of the screen, big green blocks and changing letters from letters to blocked out squares making my email look like it has been redacted. How can I fix my Firefox installation to stabilize the font. I tried reinstalling and updated the advanced settings but I don't think that is the issue, it almost seems like a virus.
