Every once in a while the Firefox browser will close down (I'm assuming for an autoupdate) when it does it clears my chosen search engine as well as the information of recently closed tabs and windows. This means that when it restarts I have to search through my history for the sites and pages that I had open before it closed down. Why is this happening? and is there a way I can stop it?

I have no trouble switching the Mozilla folder to make things simple for my 64 bit win 7 install works like a charm. I also have a 32 bit win 7 on another drive that I would like to update with all my latest bookmarks and passwords. I would just save the Mozilla folder of that 32 bit drive and slide my 64 bit made Mozilla folder over to it. Would this work, I don't believe it could cause any harm if it don't work I can always just slide my 32 bit folder back in, I will have it saved of course just in case. I have in the past moved those other folders but this is different in that I cannot run both drives and systems at the same time,. I have them so I can chose my boot choice either in bios or using the F11 key to chose which would boot first. I haven't used the 32 bit for two years but I have a lot of tools I need to go back to and use for image work. I can select the Mozilla folders easily from either system and do the replacement so it isn't hard. I would rather like some input before I do this. Of course I am talking about my profile information but moving the entire Mozilla folder from one to the other, that is a working fix for making it easy on a new firefox install without any bookmarks or other information. Thanks

Wacom pan/scrolling affects videos too

I use a Wacom Intuos Pro m. I set one of the pen buttons to operate as scroll/pan. When I use scroll/pan in a page to scroll upwards or downwards, if the page hasvideo content (youtube, vmeo), the video playhead moves forward or backwards at the same tiem the page moves. In other words, page scrolling and video scrolling do not work separately, and this only happens in Firefox windows, not in Firefox mac, nor with other Windows browsers.

How can I set up Firefox so the pan/scroll works as expected, namely, only having effect on the scrolling of the page?

Thanks

Password Manager Lockwise vs. Old

Showing all passwords in a list view as it was in the old password manager was really helpful. I tried to install this: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3062276

But unfortunately with the newest Firefox 84 it is not working anymore. I get an error message.

Is there any other possibility to reactivate the old password manager? There are countless of people and threads on the internet wanting this feature back. Mozilla made a step backwards here unfortunately.

Thank you for your help!

Hello someone, anyone. I'm trying to import Bookmarks from a Time Machine backup. I've looked everywhere and tried everything I know and I'm not new to computers, although I have not had to import bookmarks in a long time. I'm on an Imac Catalina, backup is on High Sierra, current OS is 10.15.7 Catalina, lost my bookmarks when I upgraded to Catalina because I had to do a clean install. Any help would be greatly appreciate and I may consider putting you in my Will. Robert
