Firefox is an excellent browser. I use it on all of my devices.

Is there a way to save the current tab to a URL file on the Windows (Version 7 and 10) file system. I realize you can do that by dragging the URL from the Firefox URL list box to the file folder but for various reasons I was hoping that it would also be possible as one of the choices from the Menu (as in "\File\Save Page As").

If that is possible I have another question.

In a Windows file folder with a number of URL files, can I select a number of those files and right-click the selected files and have them all loaded on to Firefox simultaneously.

I know that this worked with a single URL file in a Windows file folder (by Double Clicking it) but I have not been able to find a way to do it with a group of selected URLs in a Windows file folder.

Both of the above were available in the old (now no longer functional) IExplorer from Microsoft.

None of this is critical but I was just curious.

Thanks.

Firefox with Virtual Desktops on Windows 11 - restoring tabs per desktop

I am using Windows 11 and I have 3 virtual desktops. In my Firefox settings "Open previous windows and tabs" is checked. One time I'll close Firefox and reopen it later and it opens up in all 3 virtual desktops and restores the tabs for each. Great! The next time I reopen it, it loses all the tabs and opens up in the current virtual desktop to the web page I have set as home. Not so great. The behavior seems kind of random. How do I get it to work the way I want all the time? Is there some additional setting or plugin that would do it? Or do I have to close Firefox in a certain way to get it to reopen the way I want? Is it affected by my use of Firefox on other devices with synced Firefox settings?

I just installed Foxfire on my new laptop.

On my previous laptop when I did a google search it would take me right to what I was looking for.

Now when I do a search...it lists several ads first and the actual thing I am looking for is about 5 or 6 items down. Is there a way to get it back to how it as on my old laptop where there were no ads at the op of the page?

Thank you.

Window 10 Firefox login table date scientific number conversion to Excel date numbers

Dear Sir or Madam; I downloaded a login CSV file from the Firefox browser. The date columns format in the CSV login file is ‘1.64055E+12’. In EXCEL, 44556.79166 would translate to 2021/12/26 18:59:59. The translation of ‘1.64055E+12’ should not be the same exact date, but should be in the same date range, as the 44556.79166 number. I’m not a mathematician. Would you please show me how to convert the '1.64055E+12' value to an equivalent excel date/time number? I could then format the excel date number cells to an yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss format. These scientific number values are in the Firefox login file CSV downloads so I assume they were intended to be used in EXCEL spread sheet. These values converted to EXCEL date values would help me sort account password date change records by account name and change date. I could review sorted account records (and thus determine the current password for individual old accounts). Your solution would help me immensely and I appreciate your time.
