I broke an old computer and have my logins from it on a backup drive in logins.json and key4.db. I can't work out how to transfer these logins to my new computer. I've tried creating a new firefox profile since I am nervous of losing logins that are on my new computer, but then I am totally lost.

I am trying to move Firefox to my wife's new computer. I have pulled the HD out of the old computer and have linked it to the computer I'm typing on via a USB port. On it, I can navigate to the Profiles directory but when I attempt to copy it to my HD on this computer, I get this error:

    0X80004005: Unspecified error

I've reviewed pages by searching on the error code but nothing comes up that is relevant. I've cleared permissions on the Profiles directory and all its files ... to no avail.

I'm stumped. Any suggestions?

My Bookmarks did not transfer over from either my prior Firefox browser or my Safari Browser. I could not find the bookmarks.plist for Safari, and the upgrade did not ask if I wanted my Firefox bookmarks transferred over.

I was having problems with my email and was looking more closely at those settings as well as firefox/ deleted cache, cookies , etc. 5 months ago my email was hacked so I am being extra cautious....

I just discovered there are many items listed that say to save the application. I do not recall adding these.... How did they get there? I recall whatever was listed I chose that I be asked what to do with it. Here is a screenprint so you can see what the items are. I use Linux. The only change I made after seeing this is to ask me about anything not listed. The answer had been to save. Should I change them all to ask me? Most of the items I do not use and or know what they are. Thanks ! [email-removed]

I started using Firefox ESR a while ago when I had an older version of Mac OS. Now I am running High Sierra (OS 10.13) and I think I could use the standard release of Firefox, which may have newer features supported. How do I switch to that?

Hello,

I need to export many profiles that are connected to my FFX account. these are the profiles found by going to "about:profiles". These do not restore on a new computer after signing in to a ffX account.

I have followed the steps outlined in this support article but it does not work, and I don't think applied to "about:profiles". https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles YouTube videos also do not appear to focus on importing the 'about:profiles'.

If someone knows how to do this, I would be very grateful.


Thank you Liam

Download Without Saving / Downloading previous versions

I'm well aware that they made changes to Firefox 98 and removed the option to Download without saving. However, the documented "fix" to change the about.config to disable a specific command is blocked when using the browser in an Enterprise setting (probably due to a group policy so employees can't tamper their browsers to do something they shouldn't do, like login using their personal accounts).

Note that the reason why Download without saving is useful is because I work a lot on one-off reports. It saves me a click of not having to deal with cleaning out my downloads folder. I feel that the devs have catered too much on the novice users and ignored the power users. At least Edge still allows you to do it.

is there a way to download the Firefox version before this without automatically updating to the latest one? I honestly don't like this change. I have transitioned my work to Edge, but one frustrating thing about it is I can't open reports of the same name. I do 2 passes on one report and put it on a template to combine them. Firefox allows me to download these reports at the same time, but having to sift through your download folder to delete the files you don't want to keep. I would want to give Firefox a chance if this is reverted, else, I will have to uninstall it because it doesn't serve me a purpose anymore as a browser to run and open one-off reports.

Or if there is a way to change browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to false even if access to about.config is blocked by Enterprise?

If you're going to do a future update, please do have a switch for us to go back to the old way of doing things without having to go through tampering config settings.

Hi, I use firefox for quite a long time, and in the last 10 months I have been having a very peculiar issue. I am unable to enter mozzila website on my computer using Firefox browser, nor any other browser. Because of it, I am unable to download update or contact support. To fix the problem, I had to download the Installer at work and save it to a flash USB, then install a newer version on my computer. I am currently contacting your from work. Please help me understand where the source of the problem is coming from and how to fix this block. Best regards, Tim.
