Though he/ she has not elaborated what changes are required to be made in prefs.js to make it work smoothly without corrupting the profile.

Please tell what changes are to be made in prefs.js?

Thanks.

I really hope someone can help. I'm on a macbook Air and kept getting a Widevine cdm plugin crash error message coming up. Some help online said I should move my profile folder onto my desktop and this would solve the problem. I did this and now upon opening firefox browser all my bookmarks have gone and I seem to have a new firefox browser as is never used. I have no gone back into 'About Profiles' and have two directories 'local' and 'root' listed. I have no idea how to restore my old firefox browser and bookmarks. Help!

I lost all faith in Firefox a few years ago after a botched upgrade ruined it, so I downgraded and stopped upgrading entirely. The new interface is garbage, and I hate it. Everything HAS to be a distracting theme. Stupid.

But I'm finally trying to upgrade anyway for security reasons. When I try to use the new version of Firefox, I try to import my bookmarks, and only the bookmarks NOT inside the Bookmarks Toolbar import. Obviously, this means I can't upgrade, and I sure as hell am not risking upgrading this browser directly, since I have zero faith in Mozilla these days.

My question to Mozilla: Why can't we just import directly from another version of Firefox like I could if I'd been smart enough to use Chrome instead? And I receive a bloody warning when I open it, telling me to either create a new profile or quit, so there isn't even an option to import my bookmarks directly! I'm honestly thinking about just dropping you for Chrome at this point. It would just be easier.

My question to everyone: WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO to get my bookmarks toolbar imported? I export. I import. NOTHING.

Thanks!

I've been a Firefox user for over 15 years. I preferred it to Chrome. But, that's all over now. Since I upgraded I have had nothing but misery. Pages don't function normally. Windows will not display properly, no matter what I set them. Worst of all with any single window, or multiple windows, the slightest mouse movement outside the window and every window comes forward, then it recedes. Back and forth - again and again. If the mouse moves away from the window boundaries, up comes on another window - not the one I want top work in. If that's not distracting enough, I will move the mouse out of the immediate area, what I type does not appear on the page - it goes to some small pseudo search bar which means That the mouse is on the empty desktop. Etc. Etc. I've had it. Too much distraction and poor functionality.

Honestly, I don't care about Sync. I only use my desktop computer. My cookies are always set to be saved. I never delete them. But every time I open Firefox 76, I see the Important News page about profile changes with a log/in request on the right side. In Preferences, I set a custom URL for my homepage. That did not change what I see first when I open Firefox 76. I never sign out, just open and close the Firefox window, and all it is set to save all of my login information. How can I go straight to my home tab without seeing this one about profiles changes?

Hello,

I would like to save some settings that would take a lot of time to be done manually again, after an update. I have added about twenty search engines with the help of different Firefox addons. During my last update, these were lost (the search bar only had the default searche engines) although Firefox was synchronized (and conserved my bookmarks and other settings).

Would anybody have an idea how to save or synchronize them?

Thank you very much for any help!

The URL I used to use to get to password manager chrome://passwordmgrcontent/passwordManager.xul no longer works. Is there a similar URL that can be used in FF 66?

(I know that in later versions of FF there is a hamburger menu item for this)


A little bit more info:

Just tried it on FF69 Windows and it does work, but it does not work on FF66 Mac (which is where I need to use it). Not sure if it is the FF version or the OS

Im creating a FF extension for private distribution (I dont want it listed on the FF extension site).

If I use "\r\n" in my manifest.json "description" I can create a multi line description that displays as expected when I click on the preferences for my extension. The problem is that on the Add-on summary page (where all the installed extension are listed) the description shows the first 40 or so characters of the description (all of line 1 and then as much as will fit of line 2). I want to only show line 1.

I see that with extensions that are published the first line can be short and displays in the summary list, then when the preferences are displayed the first line is displayed and additional lines are displayed.

Any way to do this?

How to make macOS system keyboard shortcuts work?

I set up an "App shortcut" hotkey in macOS's System Preferences binding ⌘⇧N (command+shift+N) to "New Private Window", but it doesn't work - when I press the key combination, a new *non-private* browser window opens instead.

In the first attached image, you can see the shortcut configured in the `Shortcuts` pane of macOS' System Preferences application.

In the second image, you can see Firefox's `File` menu open, and verify that the shortcut is correctly assigned to "New Private Window", where it has replaced the default ⌘⇧P.

However, as I said above, the custom key combination doesn't work - it seems to in fact trigger the regular "New Window", which is still the default ⌘N (command+N, no shift key).

Any one know if this is a known issue, and if there are any solutions?

Using a different key combination is not useful for me, since I'm trying to switch from Chrome and have ⌘⇧N very ingrained in my behavior (I pretty much always use private windows unless I need to log in to a site or explicitly want the history saved). If I can't have ⌘⇧N then I might as well just try to adjust to the default ⌘⇧P.

The fact that executing the shortcut brings up a non-private window makes the whole thing much worse - I'm ending up using non-private windows when I think I'm using private ones :/
