Different sized bookmark-backup files, WHY?

So I am trying to transfer my Firefox 53 bookmarks from one PC (Windows 10) to another (Ubuntu 17.04) via the "json" Filetype. The first problem was that the Restoring from file always produced a error message of a script not working (disabling addons/plugins, aswell as giving the script more time by changing the config value from 10 to 20 did not help), I clicked "continue" and it seemed to finish correctly.

To check whether the Transfer was corrupted by the script error, I made a backup file (again .json) of the new installation.

Problem: The original Backup File was 2,5MB big, the "test-backup" is 2,4MB big!!!

I thought maybe Ubuntu is the problem, so I made a fresh installation of Windows 10+Firefox on another partition. With this Win10 installation i had no script-error during bookmarks-installation.

BUT: A test-backup of this third installation was only 2,3MB big!

So my bookmark backups keep getting smaller eventhough they should have identical contents!

Where is the fault?

Whenever I start Firefox, Session restore defaults to a session from about 6 weeks ago, This seriously hampers progression, some tabs are "dead", others horribly outdated, not to mention the loss of recent tabs (recent history only remembers a few)

Cannot config for preferred URL for search from address bar, WHERE IS IT STORED?

Before ver 52 Firefox (and now in Win10), there was some obvious way of doing it in Options (I think "custom" on the drop-down list). Now selecting from list of default searchers in Options gives only search names, not what their URLs are or what options they may include, and no "custom" to add your own. I need to include a parameter in a Google search that includes verbatim, and the paramater has been the same for many years, I only have recently found no way to include it, although it does work fine for home page, new tab, and other places where a search engine is called up. The address bar is the only place I see no way of entering it. I have searched "about:config" for every instance of googlea and inserted the URL with the verbatim paramer, and still no success. It is everywhere correct, except for searches from the address bar. The URL Firefox puts on the address bar appears to now be inalterable for any given searcher choice. Although not relevant to the problem, the exact URL I prefer is (which most serious searchers love once they use it):

  https://www.google.com/? newwindow=0&pws=0&num=100&safe=off&tbs=li%3A1

The most critical parameter for "verbatim" is &tbs=li%3A1 plenty weird, but works. Much appreciation and "golden buzzer" for solution. BillBailer

Pages redirect often without permission.

The pages I load is always redirected to some websites such as : nova.rambler.com, applepanda.com, oneclkads.com and so on. I have installed an addon for my browser called "Redirect Control" by the publisher " hjgwmvya " and works pretty fine till this day. As I am getting a lot of unauthorized redirects, the addon asks to redirect or not. But it is not near perfect 'cause it always asks to allow redirection every time I open websites like "Wikipedia". But i can change to "allow always" option but there is no "never allow" option which doesn't satisfy me. While the addon is installed and works fine, I have to remove the redirection source or something that causes the redirection. Is there a way that I can remove the redirection source?

I'm REALLY frustrated at the fact that I have to be forced to upgrade my computer or operating system just to upload my videos on Facebook as my videos do not load, the post buttons do not appear and everywhere I look it says I have to be on the LATEST version of my browser! Now, I along with countless MILLIONS of other Macintosh users are on OS Versions such as Lion & Mountain Lion and THEY all deserve respect as well.... I implore you all at Mozilla to PLEASE try and repair the Firefox Browsers so they can all be used universally regardless of whether you're on Leopard or El Capitan or any other OS in the spectrum...
