How can I recognize profile files and restore bookmarks, logins and prefs in a new installation of Firefox?

I recently used App Cleaner and Uninstaller to delete an extra copy of Firefox on my MacBook Pro. The duplicate application file was already named Firefox2 and I selected that along with it's service files and user profiles, etc. to be deleted. To my surprise, both copies were deleted and I had enabled the deletion to bypass the trash directory. I'm also still kicking myself for failing to make an image of my hard drive prior to the deletion. I used several 3rd party apps to try restoring the files as I'm interested in the stored passwords and the bookmarks. Not an easy task and not practical.

One of my data recovery apps found a copy of bookmarks that I had exported a while back as well as a few folders with a collection of what seems to be user application support files. I'm not sure, but I think they are profiles. There are several folders (although I'm the only user of this computer) each named with an 8-character alphanumeric name followed by the file extension of "default-" plus a 13 digit number.

Among the contents of each are numerous file, folders and subfolders with names that include: add-ons, bookmarks, cookies, extensions, logins, perfs, sesssionstore, signon, webapps, etc. Assuming that theses are the profiles, how can restore them?

In addition, I also found several folder with names such as "0120B2F92360F7C11C4B3CFAC56B25F1B8FA2303C8" containing one file with names such as "E71086F8-C7A8-4D60-9C49-7F291855FE17.01f61a19376cb7ec511b721ea5737760f85b218462". TextEdfit show mostly machine code with text based headers that start with "com.apple..." Not sure if these are useful.

Two of those files appear to be interesting:

    com.apple.backupd.filechecklist
    System.keychain-orig

I don't know if these are useful or not.

I am planning to download and install the latest version of Firefox compatible with Mac OS 10.12. What do I need to do to restore the information from these files and which files are actually relevant?

Your guidance would be greatly appreciated.

With kind regards, LChoiSF

System: MacBook Pro (Retina early 2015) @2,7GHz i5 OS: macOS High Sierra 10.13.6

Today after trying to open a random website out of my Mail-App, Firefox did't open. Now, when launching the Firefox-icon in the dock, it does the little jumping-animation, but after that nothing happens. No error-message either.

Before that, Firefox functioned perfectly. I can't remember installing any updates or changing any preferences today.

I tried reinstalling Firefox (clean reinstall) as described in several other posts. Also tried the suggestions on the Mozilla Support-Page ("Firefox won't start - find solutions"). Opening Firefox in Safe Mode or by holding the option-key also didn't work.

Would really appreciate your help, thanks.

Edit: When moving and launching Firefox from another drive (SD-Card or initial "virtual" Firefox-drive) it somehow workes!

According to the link below from Clare Controls, they said in order to get the proper plug in, you would need to download a browser that has NPAPI plugin. Can anyone help with this?

FF 69.0.1, OSX 10.12.6, everything browser is updated. Frequent crashes in normal mode, even with all addons disabled. Stable in Safe Mode. I've been through the entire troubleshooting article and handled everything except the OS, which I can't do because of other software requirements. Crashes are hard OS crashes & reboots, not FF Crash Reporter. Most often is 'plugin_container' and less often 'kernel_task'. System is completely stable without FF running and with FF in Safe Mode. Is there anything else I can do? I deeply depend on my browser, have used FF since inception and would like to not switch to "that which is not evil" (which I'm having to use here because moz.org wouldn't let me log in in Safe Mode in FF).

Hi

Today I downloaded FF at work, made a FF account using my personal email account and created a load of work related bookmarks and passwords etc. Got home and downloaded FF on my mac and realized when I signed in that I got all my work related passwords and bookmarks etc. That is all useless to me as it's behind a private network.

So, I thought I'll create two FF accounts, 1 for work, 1 for personal. So I added a second email (my work email) to my FF account. Then made that work email my primary email and deleted the secondary email account (my personal email).

But the problem is that I can't use my supposedly deleted non associated personal email to create another FF account. Every time I do, it says "Primary account email required"

So what do I do

Hi,

I need to know if the steps to delete cache and cookies in Firefox 3.5 is the same as for the latest version--this is for Firefox in Mac, not PC. I understand the newest version is 74 so I imagine the process must have changed but I dont exactly know...

Also, if the process has changed, what was the old process?

Thanks :)
