Dear All:

Suddenly FF starts but shows only a new tab without any content. I can fill in a URL but no reaction. Settings doesn't open. Close tab through X Restart FF. no new tab but message: FF is already running but is not responding. The old FF process must be closed to open in a new window. Click to close. a new empty tab pops up without starting FF manually. Close through X Restart brings the same message as above - no window. Have to end FF in Task Manager.

Uninstalled and reinstalled three times - no change.

I'm using Windows 10 and Avast One, Firewall checked - is open for FF.

I appreciate your comments and help. Best wishes Henning

I cannot find this anywhere. As a Topic . I've Reinstalled Firefox several times,and,each time the Browser continues to Import the previous instalations Bookmarks.

Noticed that a small Dialog box pops up stating what is being installed,with 'Importing Previous Bookmarks". Should be an Option on Instalation that handles exactly what is to be described as installed. Supposed there used to be. Since im used to installing w/o 'default settings.

The little check box that denotes 'use old settings,and apps,does nothing.

Have another problem with my Bookmarks. And this is what I need solved Reinstalling Firefox without Importing Previous Bookmarks.

Options for Migrations is not a punn here.

I got a new computer so I created an acct and set all my open tabs and history to sync. It wasn't intuitive to my not techie brain, but found out how to open all the tabs on the new computer. However, they don't open in the same order (makes it almost useless when you have a lot of tabs), and the tabs don't have their associated history.

Is there some way to have Firefox open tabs and history in the same state on the new device?

I kept getting new version is available while I was up to date. This could be due to this:

When I had Firefox in its standard location in C drive, I also installed another copy on my computer's E drive. After a while I uninstalled the E drive version and kept the C drive one.

After that I kept getting a new version is available, but could not be downloaded. I follow the links and find out I do have the latest version. When there is a new version out, in Settings - General - Check for updates I always get the message Firefox is up to date.

I uninstalled Firefox completely, but kept my profile directory contents. After re-installation, I copied contents of my old profile into the new installation default profile.

However, I still get the 'New version is available, but couldn't be downloaded'. The problem is still there.

Somewhere in the files in my profile directory there is still a trace of the E drive installation and the update checking looks at that (I guess ? ) Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I am honestly in chock with Firefox's terrible decision of not providing any option for the user to delete downloaded files.

It is honestly amazing that they came up with such a terrible decision. My downloads folder is a complete mess now and there seems to be no way to fix this.

I don't understand why not just provide an option for the user to only open files. People should be able to choose their settings.

I refereed to this previous post and the solution there didn't work: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370409. By setting browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to false.

Is there actually no way to only open files now?

Hello. I use developer's version of ff for a few weeks (currently on 107.0b2). I recently decided to switch back to stable version 106. However, when I run it it says

``` Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox. ```

So, how do I move from developer's version back to stable without losing anything?

(OS: debian 11, if it matters)

I try to install Firefox on a HP Z1 G8 desktop under Windows 11 Pro. The first time I get a warning that a .dll is not available or so (I dont know what this warning is precisely, becaus it pops up for 2 seconds only ) , and firefox is not well installed, reinstalling goes without warning, but still Firefox starts and then stay dead, no sites, no settings. I know the security in this computer is very thight, but other apps install without problem and functions.

Why Firefox cant be installed where other apps can ??????

I’m locked out of all of my accounts because I can’t remember my firefox password and all records of it were lost to a corrupted drive. If I can’t access my 100s of accounts I’ve had for years because of firefox, I’m going to do something rash. I literally can’t even access my fucking email to prove it was me because I wanted to uP mY sEcUrItY and use randomly generated passwords. Help and help fast because I am sick with anger right now.

I am using pihole and i've learned that firefox ignores it.

Supposedly, because it has DNS OVER HTTPS enabled by default.

So i disabled it, and it still doesn't work ( ignores DNS settings and loads websites that are blacklisted in my pihole - only firefox does this, chrome and edge dont have this problem )

I've set it to my pihole server - and it still works.

I've set it to CUSTOM and put in a 0.0.0.0 as IP and IT STILL WORKS

how???

i am just trying to use pihole but i can't comprehend why would a browser ignore all these settings ...

how do i make it work?

thanks.
