Help please! I'm not tech savvy and I accidentally deleted my Firefox profile.

I was trying to fix my Firefox high CPU issue and followed the advice below. I didn't realize deleting my profile would mean losing everything. Is there a way to restore my old profile? I didn't delete the files from my old profile.

I would greatly appreciate any advice to help fix this. I'm on Windows 10 Pro. Thank you!

"Run" command: firefox.exe -P I deleted my only profile “default” I choose “Don’t delete files” Then I created a new profile

My 11-year-old PC (custom build, now running Windows 10) crashed badly (hard drives and Windows 10 were irretrievably broken), so I bought a new motherboard, etc. and installed a new OEM copy of Windows 10. I must reinstall almost all software, including Firefox. The old C: drive SSD is intact. After I install Firefox on the new machine, how can I restore the tabs from the last Firefox session?

Using Firefox browser for iMac. Recently (10/10/2021) attempted to download .aax files from Audible.com. Files were unexpectedly converted to .mp4 files, making files unusable by iBooks. Conferred with Audible Tech support. Audible Tech confirmed that .aax files are the proper format and that they did not/do not make any format conversions on their end. Audible Tech then suggested trying download with Safari. Download (of .aax files with Safari) was successful and maintained proper (.aax) format. Audible Tech said that he had not encountered this issue before and that it seemed to him that the Firefox browser may be responsible for the unexpected conversion. In the past I have used Firefox many times to successfully download .aax files from Audible.com, most recent prior to this problem was on (9/11/2021). I am notifying you simply to advise that you may have a programing glitch within the download programing portion of the latest version of Firefox (ver. 93.0 - 64 bit) for iMac(s).

I had firefox on my computer a long time ago but uninstalled it. I reinstalled it and it will not open. I did a refresh and it would not work. I went through and deleted the following folders to no avail upon fresh install from https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

Deleted folders: AppData/Local/Mozilla AppData/LocalLow/Mozilla AppData/Roaming/Mozilla Program Files/Mozilla Firefox ProgramData/Mozilla

Upon fresh installs trying to boot into safe mode results in a window briefly flashing in the taskbar and closing immediately. There's no message or anything asking if I want to boot it into safe mode. I don't care about keeping previous data for Firefox like profiles or bookmarks. I do not know what else to do.

Firefox suddenly saving Audible files as mpeg4 video files instead of aax

For some reason when downloading audiobooks from Audible, the download window in Firefox is categorizing the files as mpeg4 (video) files using the .mp4 file extension. However, unlike audio .mp4 files, Firefox is encoding them as VIDEO .mp4 files. The files do not open in iTunes nor media player as (obviously) they aren't actually video files.

The files download properly as .aax files in Safari and Chrome so this is a Firefox issue and a recent one at that; thus, it could be related to the recent Version 93 update. There are a few others who have mentioned this issue in the community forum, but as far as I can tell no one at Mozilla has actually addressed the issue or offered help.

Yes, you can change the file extension to .aax once downloaded and it opens fine. The point is that there is no discernible reason the files should be categorized as video files in the first place, and since this function has been working for years until recently this seems like a bug the Mozilla team should fix.

I have security cameras set up outside the house and I need D-Link programming to operate them through my windows 10 PC and they claim that to operate them I would need 52ESR to make the program work. My question is can I download 52ESR and still have 93.0 (64bit) on my computer. I know it sounds a rather silly question, but the cameras are on 24hour record and that would mean that 52ESR would be running 24 hours a day and I am currently using 93.0 for my daily needs. I am just an old fogey trying to get along and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Vince

Have update from 89.0.2 to 93.0 today, and like many others it seems been caught out by the assurance that passwords & logons would automatically be transferred. I've found the advice about copying key4.db & logins.json from the Old Firefox data folder that has appeared on my desktop. The problem is I can see key4.db but there is no trace of logins.json. I have show hidden files enabled. Have tried searching the folder and still got no trace. NB there was also no logins.json in new profile folder until I created an account for this support posting, although I realise it may not create until a log on is saved.

The issue is the missing passwords are computer generated and only saved in my firefox browser, and there were definitely some saved with usernames etc.

I noticed a comment that logons.json is a text document. I only have 4 of those - AlternateServices, pkcs11, SecurityPreloadState & SiteSecurityService State. I assume none of these could be logins under a different name?
