[Locked as a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1353550. Please follow up there, thanks.]

I have problems in some favicon of bookmarks. (Wrong favicon) How can i reload favicon of a specific bookmark? There is an extension for this job : [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../|CheckMarks] But this extension has no option to reload favicon of bookmarks individually for force firefox to reload favicon of a specific bookmark! Please give me a solution on this. In some years ago there was an extension with name favicon reloader. It was ok. But does not exist anymore.

After reinstalling Firefox (to new 64-bit version), I've lost all of my favicons. I'm seeing that only way to get them back is to individually select each bookmark. Is there a way to get the bookmarks to go and automatically download their favicons so my bookmarks will be repopulated again?

Since upgrading to TB 91 (currently 91.2.0), it consistently takes 5+ minutes to start [Windows 10 Pro x64 v. 21H1], even in Safe Mode (all extensions disabled). I can see the Disk Active time pegged at 100% in the Task Manager during this time, but little to no CPU usage. I am using F-Secure Security Suite for AV (rebranded for Spectrum). Suggestions as to how to fix this?

I made a few changes to about:config. How can i save the about:config settings for a new Firefox installation? My bet is this is possible either with distribution-policies.json or with a HTML. I used Kali Linux, this operating system comes with a pre-configured Firefox installation. For example it uses a permanent darkmode with duckduckgo even while cookies are denied. It also comes with customs about:config settings like disabled telemetry.

Those are all the setting i changed and i would like to find out a permanent way to import them to Firefox, right after installaing the Browser. It's time consuming changing each setting manually after each install...

toolkit.telemetry.enabled false browser.urlbar.placeholderName DuckDuckGo app.update.enabled false geo.enable false extensions.pocket.enabled false pref.privacy.disable_button.view_passwords false network.protocol-handler.external.mailto false datareporting.policy.dataSubmissionEnabled false datareporting.healthreport.uploadEnabled false browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.telemetry false browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.telemetry false browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.telemetry.structuredIngestion.endpoint leer browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.telemetry.ut.events false browser.ping-centre.telemetry false toolkit.telemetry.archive.enabled false toolkit.telemetry.bhrPing.enabled false toolkit.telemetry.firstShutdownPing.enabled false toolkit.telemetry.hybridContent.enabled false toolkit.telemetry.newProfilePing.enabled false toolkit.telemetry.reportingpolicy.firstRun false toolkit.telemetry.server leer toolkit.telemetry.server_owner leer toolkit.telemetry.shutdownPingSender.enabled false toolkit.telemetry.shutdownPingSender.enabledFirstSession false toolkit.telemetry.updatePing.enabled false toolkit.telemetry.unified false toolkit.telemetry.prompted false toolkit.telemetry.rejected true toolkit.telemetry.pioneer-new-studies-available false experiments.activeExperiment false experiments.enabled false experiments.supported false network.allow-experiments false media.peerconnection.enabled false (WebRTC leaks)

If you know any more settings that shuld be disabled, please let me know!

In the last few weeks I have not been able to reset MY location for the weather. I am in Red Deer and the location is locked at Fort Saskatchewan, where I have never been! I know it should be a simple fix but even Geek Squad was not able to change this and they even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. I took my computers to Best Buy to give them the run down and as soon as they opened up the default location said Red Deer! They are only a few blocks away and I was relieve that it worked. At home it immediately came up as Fort Sask again. This is just an annoyance but I like to use Firefox as my browser. Any suggestions?

Hello,

I wrote in about an hour ago, but clicking Submit resulted in a blank page - no acknowledgement or notice from you in email since. Pls forgive if you get this twice.

I was clearing Recent History when FF crashed and lost many important open tabs. This happened with V. 93.

I back up daily with Time Machine. I'm wondering if there's a file in Application Support or elsewhere it can restore to bring the tabs back?

System profile attached.

Any help appreciated. Peter

Tried to reply to your email. It has not return. Here is a copy of report you requested. It is different from what you sent me.

> Task: invalidateCaches - Unable to invalidate caches > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

I still have no bookmarks. I have restarted the computer a number of times. I also renamed the places.sqlite adding a 1 after places as it said in other directions. I have also refreshed.

Yesterday, I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled after receipt of your response. It said all cookies, history, bookmarks etc transferred successfully. However, I keep getting the message “ and Bookmarks and history systems will not be functional because one of Firefox’s file is in use by another application. Some security software can cause the problem. I use McAfee, I’ve always used it. I have not changed it.

I did not do anything with favicon file as I don’t know what to do, I understand you can delete that. If there is a list of more than one, then what do I do.

As I indicated, I an NOT a technical person.

Please advise.

Thanks.

Got the "new & improved" version 93, and it doesn't seem so improved. I can barely write this, as it keeps stopping and starting, and acts like we're underwater! It's using about 15GBs of RAM, and while I still have plenty on-hand, it's barely functioning! Come one, what's going on, will this browser ever just work?

How can i hide my display/screen resolution from websites? I use Firefox in windowed mode not with my default screen size but websites know my default resolution. This can be used to identify my pc. I dont want that for privacy reasons like tracking and adverstising. How can i prevent this? I found many threads/posts about this in various forums/websites. They are talking about Tor Browser and that websites can identify you if using full-screen mode. But as i said, im using Firefox not Tor and while im using windowed-mode websites still know my default resoltion. I tested this on https://whoer.net/

Another question, how can i restore the default window size in Firefox?
