Hi. Today I reinstalled the system on my computer. I redownloaded Mozilla and wanted to log in to restore my bookmarks. I forgot my password. I used the button that I forgot my password. I used my email and activation link for a new password. After logging back into Mozilla, my bookmarks are gone. Nothing like creating a new account. It is very important for me to recover my data.

Cannot change home page to a url. ALL attempts result in Firefox ridiculoucly tyring to save a file called, "UpdateBrowser.rar"

After refresh to default, and home page is default Firefox. Home page opens to the defuult. Home page icon links to default. HOWEVER, it's iike the browser remembers the url that was attempted to be the home page, and the same ridiculous "UpdateBRowser.rar" keeps happening when that url is entered to go to! WTF is going on?

Hi,

The primary e-mail on my account has been hacked for over a decade. I just did a fresh install in Windows not realizing I wouldn't be able to sign in to my Firefox account using my current e-mail because apparently my current e-mail is "not the primary account holder e-mail". Now I imagine I would have added it as a backup e-mail for the case of if I couldn't access my primary e-mail (which as I've said I haven't been able to do since approximately 2011 or so) but there isn't even an option to send the confirmation to the backup e-mail in that case. I'm really tired of going through this on every website I signed up on prior to our e-mails getting hacked. Is there a way we can just change the owner to the other e-mail so I can get back into my account please?

Please add an option to disable saving images as webP. This is useless. If this is not going to get addressed in the next update I will, among many others uninstall Firefox and use a different browser.

WebP is a garbage format. Maybe it's not, maybe it's great, but it still is not widely supported yet. So pull your heads out of your *** and fix this sh**.

Thanks

After I restarted my laptop (Mac OS 10.15.7, Firefox 109), Firefox suddenly refused to open, saying, "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible."

I read the "How to run Firefox when your profile is missing or inaccessible" page. It implied that I had moved or deleted profiles--I had not. I hadn't even been aware that Firefox had profiles.

I followed the instructions and found my Firefox profiles folder, and was confused to find 15 separate folders in it. I was unclear whether they were profiles or something else. They have names like "2sb6poj9.default" or "gya9gghh.default-release". Most of them contain something called "times.json" but one of them has a whole bunch of stuff in there, so maybe it's the real profile?

I also followed some other instructions and was able to bring up what another website called the old Firefox Profile Manager. The space where it should be showing profiles was, unsurprisingly, empty. I tried creating a new profile and it let me but then told me it hadn't saved it, and the space remained blank. However, I went back to the actual profiles folder to check out of curiosity, and the new profile was there. So creating new profiles is clearly not the answer, because it will just refuse to recognize them too.

I also tried opening Firefox in troubleshooting mode by holding down option and clicking the icon--it didn't work. However, I just checked the Profiles folder after another attempt and even making this attempt seems to create a new folder! Is that normal?

I have no idea what to do at this point.

I recently had hard drive problems and during the ensuing melee, I discovered that Firefox has stored well over 100k files with the general name {xxx...}.final. Being the curious sort--and given that these boogers are taking up almost 1Gb--I looked at a few and they appear to be related to websites that I visited. I can see keeping some recent things around, but some of this goes back, literally, to the day I bought my PC. Um...that's a lot of files and a lot of space for places I visited once and will never go to again. Some of the websites no longer exist, so obviously those files are wasted space.

I am unable to find much about this on the web, either via Google or the help here. A few people have brought it up, but no one seems to know what to do. The help here goes nuts with the search term "final" and brings up a plethora of hits containing "finally" and so forth, but nothing useful. "}.final" isn't much help, either.

The path is C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile name>\storage\default

Questions: 1) Can some or all of this be deleted? 2) Is there a way to tell Firefox not to be so anal about keeping so many useless things?

Given the sheer quantity of these things, it would make future backup/restores easier if I could trim some of the fat, but I don't want to mess things up, either.

Thanks...

Hello,

My bank's website has a 2 page verification process for logging on. The first page is for the User ID and the second page is for the password.

Until just a few days ago, I could enter the first letter of my User ID into my bank's website login field, and FF would auto-fill the rest. Now when I enter that first letter, nothing happens. I then have to look up this info before I can continue. Luckily, the second page (for the password) is working just fine.

If I remember correctly, there has been a recent FF update. This new update may be the source of this issue.

Please help!

Thanks, Andre'a

Hello,

I am working in Mac OS 13.2 and just reinstalled Firefox after my OS has to be wiped and restored due to a OS file being corrupted.

When I sign back into Firefox my bookmarks did not re-sync. I followed the “profile / manage bookmarks / restore” instruction, where reportedly Firefox keeps the last 15 back-ups, but I am only getting seeing back-up from the day I reinstalled the browser, so it’s empty.

How do I access my bookmark back ups from a few days ago?

Worst case, I have a time capsule back up. What is the file path to find a file to import Firefox bookmarks?

Thank you!

I've been 99% successful at switching over from Chrome to Firefox, however a major hiccup is that Gmail stops loading on Firefox, though it works on all other browsers just fine.

If I manage to actually open Gmail, I will be able to browse for about 20 seconds before getting an error message that says Gmail is having a problem and to 'refresh to retry' - clicking refresh will make the page crash and show only a white screen. From then onwards, even trying to open Gmail in another tab will not actually redirect you from the current page you are on. It will just update the address bar to say "https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox", however the browser doesn't actually load anything, and the 'refresh' icon shows that nothing is even in the works buffering.

Searching forums shows many people having this issue, and the only effective fix is to clear your cache and refresh the page. Unfortunately, while this technically works in the short-term, it is only a matter of time (sometimes under 5 minutes) before it crashes again.

As you can imagine, this it really limits productivity - it's hard to get on a roll when you have to keep stopping every couple of minutes to re-attach the wheels.

Forums show that this issue has been happening to users for years, and unfortunately nobody has been able to offer a long term solution, leading me to have to use a seperate browser just to access my emails. One user suggested switching away to a completely different email server such as Protonmail and ditching Gmail entirely but 1. that is comically inconvenient advice, 2. not viable as an organisation I volunteer with uses gmail, and 3. doesn't help fix the actual issue in the first place, which many users besides myself are facing.

Is anybody able to offer a reliable fix for this? Is there a browser extention that is causing the issue, or one that can fix it?

All help would be greatly appreciated as I find this issue to be a huge source of frustration from a browser that I am otherwise quite happy with.
