Bookmarks and passwords after installing sync

Hello,

I just installed Firefox Sync, and now I see that all my previously saved bookmarks and passwords have been deleted. I do see a folder in which these should be, but when I try to import the bookmarks it shows me an error (photo 1). Also trying to restore to previous dates shows errors (same result as photo 1).

So instead of importing them I try to do the long work around of putting them all back in place. However, when I try to bookmark webpages again, they are not shown in the bookmarks at the top of my browser (photo 2) or in the bookmarks when I open the menu (photo 3)

My question: How do I restore my old passwords and bookmarks? And how can I get bookmarks at the top of my screen again?

Thanks.

I had so many problems with it, I went through downloading different "session save" add-ons, I know what solution you guys will give me, I've done most of the posts' instructions, this is more of a complaint post.

When Windows boots up and you had Firefox open before you shut down last time, it will open anew, automatically, with your previous session, but it's on the end of the list of things that launch on startup.

Forgetting you had it on and clicking the browser again, will open a new session with the home screen instead of the previous session, then when actual session Firefox launches it's a 50/50 whether it will be in home screen as well, or actually in your previous session. Now here is the fun part. If you close the new window with just the home tab, that will now become the latest session, so your previous one will be deleted.

How to get around that? Move your home tab into your session instead of closing the window, it works 100% of the time... But can we, not start a new session if you close the home screen, or if you close just 1 tab it doesn't count as a different session. I dunno, just throwing ideas out there.

Hope this reaches those with the same issue, or people in positions to fix the issue, if anyone wants to use session saving add-ons, I took fancy to Tab Session Manager and Easy Session Manager, though not perfect, I don't advise for over 150 tabs.

I'll try to be as active on this thread as I can be, thanks for reading through! :>

I am trying to view a list of Purchase Orders in my web-based ERP system (Unanet) but when I go to search, only 1 out of the 5 PO's appear. I have contacted Unanet support and they logged into my account and were able to view all 5 PO's, so we're certain the issue isn't within the ERP. It's either with my computer or browser. See attached image for reference, there should be 5 Purchase Orders listed. There seem to be a few errors in my console (on the bottom of the picture) but I'm not sure how to fix them. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!

I have had Firefox downloaded for a considerable amount of time and had begun to use it as my daily browser, until I started experiencing issues, concerning the loading. I have experienced this issue in all cases when trying to open the browser through the desktop shortcut, other icons, and even the .exe file, and typically I will see a brief white screen of Firefox before it immediately closes again. Frustrating to say the least and a quick google provides no insight. I have attempted on multiple occasions to uninstall and reinstall, however to no avail, and have even tried to create a new profile, via the Run (Firefox.exe -P) but again with no success. Running the browser in Safe Mode (Shift) will also work for a split second with the dialogue opening and then instantly shutting. Any suggestion on a potential fix would be great.

Is there an 'about:config' toggle for me to disable the "fill login" option when I right click in a username or password field on a website? I do not use Firefox lockwise or any of the browser's autofill settings and would like to hide the right click menu as well as turning the feature off entirely, as it clutters the UI.

I also wouldn't mind being able to hide the "Logins and Passwords" section in the drop down menu on the right. Is there a toggle for that as well?

I have attached a screenshot of the UI element(s) I'm asking to hide.

Thanks.

Reviewed "Sheribee" earlier issue which apparently involved a VPN. I do not have a VPN but have tried several times in the past week to access IRS refund status site without success. I can get into irs.gov, but am unsuccessful in accessing the refund status site after entering required input data. The issue has occurred only this past week.

I'm unaware of IRS issues causing this problem.

Have not had this issue on any other sites; and I have successful retrieved data in prior years.

I am not saving any sign on protocols with the irs or any other sites.

Running Windows 10. Thanks for any help. BTW I did get refund information using the telephone, but I want to ensure there's not a hidden conflict of some sort with FireFox. Thanks for any help.

I have a new Windows 10.0 Pro computer and installed lates version of fire fox. Now I try to implement automatic "open link in new tab" as I had in my previous PC. My internet search was unsatisfactory. The only solution I founf was to right click the link and use the option "open link in new tab". This works but is cumbersome compared to the old version. I also found some help to change certain values in "about:config" from false to true. But they did not work. Does the new version of firefox block the desired adjustment?

Hello,

I usually had no problems deleting a single form entry that was once saved. As described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/control-whether-firefox-automatically-fills-forms#w_deleting-individual-form-entries

But now this doesn't work anymore. I can't delete the form entry. Nothing happens when I follow the instruction. I tried it on two different laptops. Right now I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 (64-Bit). Is this a known issue of my Firefox version or has the method changed?

Thank you in advance! M.
