My old computer crashed, but the content on the hardrive is intact. I'm on a Mac. I have a new imac with OS Sierra, how do up date Firefox on my new computer so it has the same history and bookmarks as the firefox on my crashed computer. I read your h elp files but they confuse me. Years ago there was a "history" file and I could just transfer that over, but now I see that doesn't exsist. Please help.

Firefox keeps on changing pages, even yanking minimized pages back onto the screen and changing them, even though I have Firefox preferences set to always open new pages to accommodate links on a page or bookmarks.

I don't want Firefox to tamper with any pages, period. If I have a pages minimized, no way should Firefox be yanking that page up back onto the screen because it's "too lazy" to open up a new page to accommodate a bookmark or link clicked on.

It's extremely aggravating to click a link on a page, get a new page then, when I click the page to close it I find no page underneath, indicating that Firefox had changed the original page rather than open up a new page automatically to accommodate the link, etc.

What's the point of me in Firefox preferences setting it up for Firefox to open up new pages automatically when afterwards it doesn't?

Hi all, I just noticed that there was an update to Firefox’s sync service and it seems that my old sync details no longer work so I need to move to the new system. Since I do so much of my work and I keep so much highly personal information in Firefox, I just wanted to know how I can check if this new Firefox sync service is safe. Is my personal information safe? Can my personal information be shared with others? Can the Mozilla people access my personal information? I didn’t want to use Firefox Sync until I was 100% certain that it was safe and nobody could access my personal information such as the Mozilla people or anyone else.

I have Google set as my default search engine. When I am in any of a number of sites and click on a link to open it, the page does open but only momentarily, and then the browser switches over to Yahoo search for that topic. I'd like to keep this from happening but don't know how. I'm on a Mac Book Pro, OS 10.9.5. this was not happening before the switch to Yahoo as the default Firefox search engine.

thanks

How do I make Firefox quit reloading web pages multiple times (while I'm reading a page), so the back button will go back to previous page

The back button has not been working properly for maybe a month. I've finally addressed the problem but have no solution. Updated to Firefox 43.0, disabled all my add-ons plus reverted to default header, then also ran the refresh which deleted my add-ons. This problem happens on multiple web sites. I'll click on Rawstory.com (as an example), then click on an article and start reading it. While the page doesn't appear to reload as I read, I have noticed that the little Rawstory icon in the tab winks (as if reloading the page). This happens over and over again. Now I know to pull down the window under the back arrow to see what happened. The last page that I read ended up showing up 9 times under the back arrow, even though all I'd done was click on it once and read the article. I've wondered if my clicking on the scroll bar to read down the article is somehow causing this problem (ditto for using my fingers on the track pad). Thanks for your help.

I use Xmarks to synchronize bookmarks ACROSS browsers. Many of the commercial sites (such as LLBean and Orvis, I haven't listed those I've encountered - undoubtedly I should have) I purchase from do not support Firefox and it is impossible to place orders with them, so I must use Chrome. I WANT Chrome AND Safari synchronized with Firefox, so I am free to switch between them.

Anyway, since FF 57 (which has apparently been FORCED on me), the Xmarks pop-up saying synchronization is needed has a download from server option. I have VERIFIED that their server HAS the lastest and complete set of my Bookmarks Toolbar folders and sites within the folders.

Selecting "download" WIPES OUT ALL my Bookmarks Toolbar folders and their contents in FF 57. I have seen this happen now TWICE.

Apparently, as many are saying, Mozilla wants us all to move to Chrome or Safari.

I can get my bookmarks back by importing FROM Chrome (THANKFULLY), but then I must move each folder from the "Bookmarks from Chrome" folder to the Bookmarks Toolbar.

Some of my favorite web pages are now unavailable because search requests are redirected to the "r.search.yahoo.com" server, which results in a no-load timeout error. Just started last week. I have found no solutions online, other that someone selling a malware program that claims to find and remove it. I have refreshed Firefox, to no avail. I have searched this forum, without result. I may be missing something here (the forum), but wonder if this is a result of malware that neither Malwarebytes or Norton Security is missing. Any ideas out there?

While browsing, the URL is essential. I often need to drag / copy this URL to another application. Most of the time there simply is NO room at all to even grab the URL. So we need to enlarge the browser window in order to enlarge the toolbar.

Does any add on or extension exist that adds an additional left, right or bottom 'bar' where we can place extension icons / controls? So as to maximize room for the addressbar? With bigger and bigger monitors available it is just plain ridiculous to not be able to use this space.

I can easily find a bookmark by searching in the Library "All bookmarks" window. However, I cannot figure out how to see folder that contains that bookmark. In Safari there an optional column for folder and you can then right-click and get an option to open the folder.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox?
