I've migrated everything from an old desktop to a new desktop and this is being written on the new one. Firefox has been transferred and all my bookmarks have made the move accurately. However, my entire list of log-ins, passwords, add-ons, etc., have NOT made the move. So my question is about how to transfer those, but my situation is slightly abnormal.

I do not have a smart phone. Further, I cannot set up the old desktop and the new desktop so they both function at the same time. However, I do have complete backups in the cloud. What I need is the name of the Firefox file(s) that I can obtain from the cloud and insert into the Firefox iteration I have running on the new desktop.

If I was able to synch a transfer would be easier. But it can't be all that much harder if I can get the name and location of the necessary profile folder or file.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

My old HD crashed and I have had to buy a new machine. Can I access a history of the downloads (PDFs particularly) that I made on my old machine. This newly installed version of Firefox does not have them anywhere that I can see. I need them for research for university essays.

Using the latest 87.0 (64-bit) on a Windows 10 PC.

I always keep multiple tabs open when browsing of my websites that I use everyday. Tabs constantly crash and have to be reloaded. When I switch to a different tab the other tabs crash. Ads and videos crash the tabs. Firefox session crashes all the time too.

Old Mac needs browser. I know it is not the best, but what is the version number of Firefox that will run on PowerPC. This is the last model and the highest OS for PowerPC. If you know where to download the most recent (haha) version of any browser that will run on this machine, please let me know that also. Many sites that say they can download old Safaris versions no longer function, just zombie pages.

I have installed Firefox as my default browser on a new iMac, but every time I open Firefox (after quitting it or shutting down my computer) it asks me AGAIN if i want to set Firefox as my default browser. If I say "yes", I have to start all over again setting My Yahoo as my home(opening) page and reset all the bookmark shortcuts I've put into my bookmarks tool bar.

I've confirmed in Firefox, in Safari, and in System Preferences that Firefox is set as my default browser. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox.

Microsoft updated overnight and today I can't get Firefox to work at all. Have downloaded/installed 3 times, but it just keeps searching for my bookmarked sites (gmail and comcast.net, for example). I have made Firefox my default browser. Any suggestions? I'm not sure I'll know if someone responds b/c I can't get into my email -- tho guess I could use Edge? I don't like using any Microsoft product ....

Hi, as of yesterday I'm no longer able to use firefox, since browsing doesn't work anymore. As soon as I try to load a page, a messge pops up that said that due to a possible health risk firefox doesn't even bother to connect (and of course I looked for a link that allowed be to go on) The test is geman, but I think that the basic of the message. Unfortunately there is no support whatsoever in other languages.

I think I can change the settings in opera, which, as the best browser atm, would be a real improvent to firefox, but I am not able to export the chronic as well as the bookmarks, that why I stayd with FF. But now, since FF isn't running anymore, I decided to finally improve my Browser. How do I import bookmarks,chronic and other settings form FF to Opera ?

I want to install Firefox on a new Windows 10 PC which has an SSD for its C: drive and an HDD for its D: storage drive. I would like to minimize SSD usage if possible and know that the FF profile can be moved to the D: drive.

I did quite a bit of searching & some people have a lot of SSD activity & say to move a cache folder or the AppData/Roaming folder. Other people don't seem to have a problem.

Is there a recommended configuration in order to minimize SSD wear?

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.
