Before COVID, I would travel about once a year. I would just copy the profile from my office email machine to my laptop, set the desktop computer to stop downloading emails (the laptop was always set to leave them on the server), and go traveling. When I returned and turned my regular email machine back on, turn the "leave on server" off, and download all the emails to it.

The COVID break from traveling meant that some file formats had changed. When I tried to load the v78 profile from my desktop to v68 on the laptop, I got a lot of errors, and went on to do other chores. Now I've come back to this issue and decided to just load v 102 to my laptop. I want to be able to load all those emails and the address book. Does v 102 read earlier versions of files, and which ones? I have a large volume of emails that I want to load, review, and then archive about 99% of them. I really need to retrieve the address books, get rid of duplicates and dead addresses, and then save about 85% of them a vcards before deleting them from the address book.

It would really help to have a list of the files that changed with each version, so that we can see what files we need to look for.

I'm hoping that 102 will convert all previous formats, and if not, I can have a list so I can migrate these v 68 files to 102 when it imports them.

I have tried for several days to download Firefox to my new Lenovo 64 bit windows 11 laptop with no success. I get a message Install not completed because VCRuntime 140.dll can't be found.

I have tried installing both 32 and 64 bit direct to the correct folders but Firefox still can't find them.

Also when uninstalling Firefox it does not complete unless I reboot first, when doing so it shows Firefox as preventing the reboot unless I ignore it.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Importing data from another browser

I'd like to import my Seamonkey profile data to Firefox, but Firefox doesn't recognize Seamonkey or its data. How can I do this? I'd like to keep my Firefox data synced to Seamonkey, and maybe synced the other way too. And I'd like Thunderbird to be able to sync to the Seamonkey email data too, for what it's worth. I thought the importing of data when Firefox starts would take care of importing SM data but it doesn't. Are there any commandline options for running Firefox that would get the importing done? I sure don't want to mess around with a huge html bookmarks file and there's other data in Seamonkey besides bookmarks that should be imported too. Help!

NOTHING MIGRATED. I downloaded the latest Firefox because nothing was working on previous versions, obviously. I tried to see if the updated version would migrate all of my tabs and bookmarks. It even showed me how to access them after I updated it! EVERY TIME I opened the tab of the downloaded new version it was clear that my information from the older versions had not migrated over. I had kept the version with my tabs and bookmarks open to check, just in case.

Then I thought, well, maybe I just need to reboot my computer as a whole.

So I did that.

Guess what?

ALL OF MY BOOKMARKS AND TABS ARE GONE. This is my work computer and I had a significant amount of information I was using. Gone.

HELP! Thank you JenB

I have been using Firefox now for 8 years with out a problem but now I have one. I have Norton's antivirus and the last 7 scans I have done Norton's had found and quarantined the Trojan Horse virus found in the Firefox program. I have uninstalled Firefox and re installed with a fresh re-load but after 1 day the virus was back in the Firefox program. I really want to use Firefox and am respectfully requesting someone help me re install the program please. I have attached a screen shot for you. Thank you in advance. Bernie.

I periodically make a backup copy of my profile (by copying the entire profile folder from C:...Roaming to another location on my computer), just in case. Now, I want to make a current copy because I'm about to power down a failing old computer and want a final profile to load on the new computer. But, in the past few days, I've run into a problem I've never seen before when I try to create the necessary profile backup:

What happens is that I get a screen titled "Destination Path Too Long". The screen lists a file name that's mostly gibberish but is not particularly long for a modern Windows file:

   3647222921wleabcEoxlt-eemgsairo.files

That mystery file is shown as having been created 3/15/2020 at 10:36 PM, which was when I installed Firefox on this computer.

I've made weekly backups of my Firefox profile on this computer since 3/15/20, and this problem has never appeared before. But I MUST get a copy of the profile NOW, before it's too late (and, no, sync is not an option in this case).

So I have two questions:

1) Can I just tell the file copy process to skip the problem file, or will that create some problem when I load the profile to the new computer?

2) Any idea what's causing this problem to just now appear? Any ideas on how to fix it?

Advice and assistance would be much appreciated!

I upgraded my video card in windows 10 64 bit. The card lets me connect through HDMI finally. But Firefox won't display as before. It now looks like the version of Firefox for my linked cell phones after trying multiple restore efforts. Did Firefox change so the desktop version looks like it was made for my phone? I linked my phone and it seems to have overwritten my desktop settings. Are they recoverable, as in older recent backups of my data still saved somewhere on your server? Thanks much!
