Transferring Saved Logins from Firefox on another PC

I need to transfer saved logins from Firefox on a soon to be retired laptop to Firefox on a new laptop. New laptop has a few logins created while setting it up than I copied manually knowing that when I import from the old laptop with many logins, the few on the new laptop will be overwritten. My problem is that Firefox can export logins into a logins.csv file but it seems can only import from a Microsoft browser. Is copying the key4.db and logins.json from the old to the new the only correct way to do this? The old laptops logins.json file has a recent date but the key4.db has a 2018 date even though some new logins were saved last month. Do I only need to copy the logins.json file?

Hi, I can't install Firefox and I don't know what's going on here.

Yesterday I installed the latest version of Firefox and it worked fine. Then, I turned off the laptop and the next day when I was going to use Firefox, it didn't load any pages. Edge was working fine, Chrome was working fine, but Firefox was not working. Trying to fix the problem, I decided to uninstall Firefox and installing it again. In order to clean even more the previous installation, I even manually deleted the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox folder to remove all possible traces. I restarted the laptop and downloaded again the Firefox installer. I don't know how, but the installer detected that I had already installed Firefox before. I unchecked restart Firefox and hit the button to continue with the installation. After this, was impossible to install Firefox again. I got a message saying that the installation cannot continue because the VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. The message said that this problem can be fixed by reinstalling the program, but that is not true, everytime I try to reinstall it, I get again the VCRUNTIME140_1.dll error.

After this, the installation stops and the Firefox icon appears on the desktop, but it doesn't install properly the software and when I open it, I cannot browse the Internet.

Do you know what's going on here and how to solve this?

Cheers

Yesterday when I installed the 96.0 update it has forced my background color into a dark grey and ignores the background color setting. I would like to know if there is a setting, add on or update that can return this to normal. The theme I am using has not been updated in 2 years so I am fairly sure the update has caused this.

I have lost all of my old firefox data (bookmarks, shortcuts, etc.) I think I downloaded a newer version of firefox by mistake. I have followed all the Firefox Help information to try and retrieve the data, but nothing works. I have tried each profile listed on the profile management page: not a single profile has my missing data. I created a new profile, that didn't work. I restarted my computer, that didn't work. I am using a Dell desktop computer with Windows 10, or possibly 11. Can you help, please?

thank you, anne

Firefox glitched last night and I had to reinstall it. In the process, I've lost everything. I have an "old data" folder on my desktop, but no matter how many times I import it, none of my old stuff shows in Firefox. It also stalls on files and says the names are too long. This is all complicated by the fact that I am almost blind. I am desperate for help as most of my site passwords were generated by firefox so I don't have a single clue what they are. Bookmarks are all gone. I'm literally crying. Please help.

Things I've already tried: Import old data by copy/paste method. Repeatedly. Replace sqite files for passwords, sessions, etc.

This is going to be long sorry. A lot has transpired

My son was using 78.15esr. I upgraded it to 91.3esr. After the upgrade the browser worked; tabs loaded, surfing was fine, could go into settings and about:config was fine.

He went to watch something on Netflix. Netflix complained his browser was not supported and he needed to upgrade to the latest version - which at the time was 91.3esr.

In frustration he installed Chrome. When he tried to run it he was told software restrictions were in place. I had not set any restrictions, and I checked secpol.msc and there were definitely no path rules defined. If restrictions can be set in group policy I had not set them because I am unaware of them.

So he installed Microsoft Edge, which installed VC runtime for 2013 and 2015-2019 for both x64 and x86.

At that point Firefox no longer loads tabs at all. About:<anything> doesn't work. Settings doesn't work. You can't go to safe mode (more on that later), and when closing the browser two processes remain taking about 60 seconds to end.

I did have the group policy templates for Firefox installed. When I upgraded to FF 91 I installed the latest templates.

A couple of times when I started FF it complained about vcruntime140 was missing. But just running FF again worked without doing anything else.

So I reverted to 78.15; I uninstalled v91.3esr. I deleted his profiles.ini and profiles folder and then copied them back from a back up. I removed any registry settings, and copied back the v78 ADML files. I then installed v78.15esr with internet disconnected. Did not run FF after install. Went into group policy editor and turned off telemetry and auto updates then re-enabled internet

Run FF and same issue. tabs not loading. Pages not loading. I can click on a menu and I can type into navbar and search bar but there is no response. I checked internet was working.

I deleted the %LOCALAPPDATA% cache folders. I flushed the DNS cache. None of this worked.

So I uninstalled FF again, deleted the profile folders and ini. Disconnected from Internet. Deleted any registry settings, and removed the group policy templates. Then installed 78.15 from scratch and let it create a new profile.

Same darn problem. It seems to me that installing chrome and/or edge has done something nasty, but I have no idea what. I say that because before he did that he could surf the web, but Netflix just said his browser ver was outdated.

I tried contacting netflix on chat but they were worse than useless.

So I uninstalled again and removed everything. Connected the internet and installed FF again and let it update automatically. Same problem.

I've left him with edge but I need to fix FF.

I even uninstalled the VCLibs, Chrome and Edge. These did not fix the problem.

I tried safe mode but when firefox restarts there are two processes that take 60+ seconds to end so FF sits there saying "restarting...". When those processes finally end Firefox does not restart.

Checked for viruses; nothing found. Rebooted PC several times.

So at this point in time; FF will run but will not load the 3 tabs; Facebook, Netflix and youtube. They stay blank. Settings is not accessable, nor is addon's or logins and passwords. Typing anything on the search bar does nothing Typing anything in the address bar does noting Trying about:config or about:profile or any other about's does nothing. When closing FF two processes take 60+ seconds to end.

If I go back to him and tell him I need to reinstall Windows he will go absolutely nuts.

What also worries me is that Netflix said that the most recent esr browser version was not supported and that he should update to a later version.

And what is even more troubling is I updated his girlfriends PC at the same time and hers works perfectly. This scares the hell out of me because I then expect responses like "Your sons problem is not a firefox problem".

Before installing FF 96 today, I looked at the description of the changes here:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/96.0/releasenotes/

That seemed straightforward: nothing that would change the browser UI.

But when I upgraded, I found that in fact there were changes to the margins and borders of the .tab-background class in browser.css, which took some time to debug and to counteract with my userChrome.css. Not the end of the world, but if I had known, I would have held off the upgrade for a few days so I could work out the userChrome changes at my leisure.

Is there a way that I can see a fuller changelog in future before taking an upgrade, so I know what the impact is likely to be?

I downloaded several files and I can see them when I click on the little arrow, but when I look for them in my computer downloaded file , they aren't there. I go back up to the little arrow and it shows the file was downloaded, but it's not in my computer . So when I went back up to the little arrow and right clicked on it to open --it worked, the file opened, but it never showed up on my computer. The next day I tried to find the file in my computer but no success. I went to Firefox drop down and under downloads the file showed up, but I couldn't do anything with it. So now I can't find it on my computer and it doesn't work when I use it from Firefox's drop down selection. I have downloaded several other files with no problem. Here is the file. https://www.benefits.va.gov/HOMELOANS/documents/docs/VA_Buyers_Guide.pdf HELP Ron

The wizard finishes saying that it successfully imported saved logins and passwords, but nothing shows up in the password manager. I am running Windows 10 64bit and Firefox is up to date. Anybody have any suggestions?

I moved my Firefox installation to a new machine. After creating a new profile and moving all my old files Firefox has opened with all of my old info and is operating properly.

But when I tried to change the location of the cache file to the correct drive on my new machine the about:config file does not save the new entry. When Firefox is closed and re-opened the new entry has been reset to the old location.

I've tried deleting the browser.cache.disk.parent_directory entry in about:config but when the program is re-opened the entry returns with the old directory shown.

Any advise would be appreciated.

Also, difference between running "normal and beta", please explain, and how to know "differences?"
