Hi there,

i'd like to copy my Firefox profile from PC1 to a new PC2;

Last time i tried this, i ended up with PC2 having the same "name" as PC1 in "Sync". This caused weird sync issues, as the system thought my PC2 was PC1 as vice versa.

So, is it possible to copy my entire profile with all addons/settings, BUT, make "Sync" recognize it as a NEW pc ?


Thank you in advance :-)

I cannot unpin Firefox from the taskbar

How do I uninstall the Firefox icon from the taskbar? The standard article on the Firefox Support website is `How to pin and unpin Firefox from the taskbar on Windows 10 and Windows 11', but it seems to be out of date. It says to right-click on the icon and click on `Unpin from taskbar', but there is no such item in the right-click menu any more.

I know that it became difficult to unpin the Firefox icon about a year ago. I got a new PC recently and installed Firefox, but I could not remove the icon. Then realised that I should have done this during installation, by using 'Custom installation' and unticking the 'Icon on taskbar' option. I searched the web for clues and found none, so I uninstalled and reinstalled, which was a nuisance.

Some months later, I have just installed the new version 110.0.1, but I forgot to use 'Custom install', with the result that the icon is back on the taskbar. Again I have searched the web, and again no success. I tried reinstalling V110.0.1 on top, using 'custom install' this time --- I could switch off the 'Icon on taskbar', but the icon is still there.

I don't want to uninstall-reinstall this time because I have now configured Firefox as I want it, so that would waste a lot of time --- and I will probably forget again sometime in the future.

I am sure that Firefox has not done this deliberately, because they are always so much on the user's side.

QUESTION: How do I unpin the Firefox icon from the taskbar without uninstalling? I have an idea that there is a registry hack that will achieve this.

Hi. I was suddenly having unexpected problems to log in in a site (https://www.lanacion.com.ar/). So I updated FF but the problem persists. Then, I uninstalled FF, downloaded it again from the repository and installed again, but the problem persists. Then, I downloaded directly rom the Mozilla site, expand it in the desktop and double click the program icon. The program opened and I was able to log into the site I was trying to. Interesting enough, the browser opens a lot faster than when installed. My question is: everywhere on the web the response is "you have to install the program" or "the program is already installed in your distro", which is true in my case, but one day stopped to work properly. BUT I'm not installing it, and it works apparently well... ¿how can it be? Thanks in advance for your reply. -Enrique.

I checked the previous solutions in the forum, but they did not work for me. (Windows 11) I changed in system> general > download , applications > the app to open that file type and it works, but besides this Firefox keeps saving the files in the default download folder.

I tried also about:config browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to false. browser.download.start_downloads_in_tmp_dir change to true No change - still saving copies.

I have a new chromebook (Lenova Duet 3) I can install and use Firefox. I have had Dashlane (password keeper) working fine with Firefox for years. The Dashlane extensions work with Chrome, but I can't seem to get them to work with Frefox. The Chrome search engines choices are limited; ones that I never use with Firefox. Is there something in the Chromebook environment that limits firefox capabilities? (Am I looking for something that just is not possible?) Is there a work around? (Any Linux tricks?) I also have asked the same question of Dashlane, but have not heard back yet. My imperfect solution is use Chrome when it is a known website, and the password is recorded with Dashlane, and to use Firefox for new searches, where the choice of search engines is better.

Has anyone developed a search engine where there are no "sponsored" results. I understand that it would probably not be free.

I have downloaded and installed Mozilla Firefox on a new computer through the Edge browser both from the Mozilla site and through the Microsoft store. The installation downloads and installs as it should. Firefox has been selected as the default browser and everything appears as it should. When I open Firefox and type in an address, nothing populates. No site will open on the screen. When I open settings in Firefox, nothing opens. When I open history, it shows that I have been to the sites that I have loaded even though they haven't shown on the browser. I have completely uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it with the same result. I have downloaded Opera browser and it installs correctly, I have downloaded and installed Firefox from Opera and had the same result. Any ideas?

Thanks, John

I'm stetting up a testing environment. It's a closed environment with no access to the Internet when it's in use.

The environment is launched from AWS and consists of an Ubuntu 18 desktop and a Ubuntu Server running Apache. The desktop is able to successfully load the website, but with a cert error that the certificate isn't trusted.

When the Ubuntu Desktop launches, it has a fresh install of Firefox, and therefore all the directories in the users home folder are not yet setup for Firefox, including the database where the root CAs are stored.

I'm am able to add the Root CA certificate into the Firefox cert database AFTER the machine fully boots and I run Firefox for the first time. I'm using the 'certutil' package to do this. After I load Firefox, then add the root CA certificate using certutil, I'm able to load the website without error.

I need to add this certificate to the database with the startup shell script for the machine.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Here's the commands I'm using:

  1. copy the CA cert into firefox

export ffcerts=`ls /home/testuser/.mozilla/firefox/ | grep default-release` sudo certutil -A -n "testcert" -t "TC,," -i /home/testuser/certificates/testcertCA.pem -d sql:/home/testuser/.mozilla/firefox/$ffcerts

These commands work perfectly after Firefox is run for the first time. I've even tried adding 'Firefox' (with several different switches) into my startup script without success.

Running Win10 and latest Firefox browser. Trying to get rid of 'Your browser is being managed by your organization' Followed Regedit instructions - only default is listed - no policy. Looked in Mozilla Firefox in Program Files & Program Files (x86) - no policies.json in Distribution. Even did a search in those subfiles - nothing. So how do I get rid of this? I was searching 'Broiling Frigidaire Induction' and one of the videos corrupted my original Firefox. I needed a hard stop to get our of that. I deleted the app and reloaded, and I keep getting the 'Browser managed...' message. Bummer!

This is a very bizarre problem. Basically I can't install any Firefox addon neither on my desktop OR may laptop. I noticed this issue just couple of days ago. When I try to install any addon normally, from a link, it tells me that the addon can't be installed because the file is corrupt. Tried several addons, all same problem. On my desktop AND on my laptop. On my desktop I'm running ver. 103, but on my laptop I still had ver. 102.1, so there is no Firefox update issue. When I try to install addon from xpi file, it tells me that I have no permission to open that file and that's it. I tried to take ownership of that file but it didn't solve the issue I tried to disable my AV program, but it didn't do anything. On my laptop, I tried to refresh FF, no help. I tried to start FF in safe mode, same problem. I created new profile, same issue. Eventually, I totally uninstalled FF, removing program itself, removing Appdata folder and even registry entry. Installed fresh copy of FF, same problem exists. Then, I noticed one thing. When I tried to sync fresh FF installation on my laptop, it synced everything, EXCEPT for addons. So, something is preventing me doing anything regarding addons. Themes install just fine. I've struggling with this problem since yesterday and at this point I totally ran out of any fresh ideas how to solve this issue, thus posting here. I'll appreciate any fresh idea as what to do next. Thanks

After a crash earlier today within my 32bit install of Firefox, I upgraded to the 64bit version. Since then I have not been able to play videos from sites that utilize DRM.

I have tried the following:

  1. Check and Uncheck "Play DRM content"
  2. Check for updates while in the addons related page.
  3. Checked my hosts file which is blank
  4. Stopped my AV and attempted to update as well as Enable/Disable Play DRM
  5. Get a 404 when attempting to go to "redirector . gvt1 . com" site.

When I looked in my profile directory, I noted that both the "gmp-gmpopenh264" and "gmp-widevinecdm" directories are empty. I found and downloaded the most recent openh264 dll for windows 64bit. Firefox continues to say "OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. will be installed shortly." I have not found the most recent wildevine version so I have not tried to update it manually.

Could there be something squirrelly with my user profile that needs to be rebuilt? (I can export the bookmarks, etc) The 32bit Firefox crashed with no messages while watching a live YouTube stream. I just installed over without uninstalling the previous version. I was afraid of losing my current settings. The crash caused my "previous session" to be lost.
