Allowed "Refresh" upon installing new browser update and can't get back bookmarks and other data

I recently installed the Firefox 88 browser update to fix the problem that Windows would not recognize my Firefox browser in order to make it my default. Upon researching the issue, it stated that I needed to uninstall my old version of Firefox and reinstall the latest version. At the end of the installation before it completed the installation, it asked if I wanted to "Refresh" my browser. I read how it would streamline and speed up my browsing experience and it seemed like a "good" idea. I agreed to the "Refresh" and the browser finished its installation. I checked into setting Firefox as my default browser and Windows recognized it. Great, the re-installation worked.

I then proceeded to open Firefox only to realize that any custom setting, including my 15+ years of bookmarks were gone. I began to panic! I noticed that there was an "Old Firefox Data" file now on my desktop. I looked inside and realized that it contained my old data, including bookmarks, etc. I began searching online for how to get it back into my browser. I have read 7-8 tutorials and 3-4 Youtubes that supposedly fix the problem, but to no avail. Please help as I do not want to lose all my bookmarks and while not computer illiterate, cannot seem to figure out how to get them to reinstall into the new Firefox browser update.

Thank you for your help!

Since the release of Beta version 89.0b3, Firefox Beta on Win 10 keeps reverting back to .0b2. I cannot pinpoint exactly when it happens; sometimes after 'hibernation'; sometimes after 'sleep'. Getting damn frustrating, and I'm not nearly ready to move up from Windows.

How the heck do I track what's going on? All advice gratefully accepted!

MSI File for FireFox using Azure Intune does not auto update

Hello,

We use FireFox MSI file to push out to all my users that I have on my Azure Domain. But constantly I find myself having to download new MSI packages monthly in order for our users to keep there profile intact and to update there Firefox. If I do not do this, users profiles they have on their PC will be wiped cleaned and they will have to start over new and then manually update FireFox. Only to have there dreams crushed when Azure pushes out the older version of FireFox the next day when they attempt to sign-in and sync with the domain.

Is there a way to prevent this manual process from me of uploading new MSI files monthly in order for our users to use FireFox with no issue? Strong pain point for any of my users that prefer to use FireFox, but Google Chrome and Edge does not have this issue.

While youtube videos is flawless, facebook videos seem to play at 15fps. Audio plays flawlessly though.. It happens with both CentOS and RHEL. I'm using the flatpak version of firefox 88. Tried with safe mode, same issue. Tried with disabled hardware acceleration, same issue. Tried with both HWA disabled and Safe mode, same issue. It's a little weird that videos are flawless in brave browser..

Is there some obscure setting in about:config that I can fiddle with?

My website runs NGINX with PageSpeed module. It's fronted by a CDN. When I visit the homepage on Edge and Chrome, most of the images are webp and yet on Firefox they are jpg.

My Firefox version is 88.0 64 bit for Windows 10.

Does anyone know why this is happening as visitors to my site in Firefox are getting a slower response

Thanks

From the very start, for the last 25+ years, Right Click a link, and hit the letter W to open the link in a new window... Suddenly, with 88 Update, it is now the letter D. (while everything else in Windows is still W)

How do I get it back to [W] (Industry Standard is W)

Why did Mozilla change the letter to D?

I don't mind having to train myself to use D instead of W... I do mind that everything else still uses W, so I have to train myself to only use D in Firefox.

Suddenly, Firefox stopped autofilling urls in my url bar and only offers search terms. Occasionally a url will show up there on autofill but only is triggered from beginning characters of the url rather than something in the middle.

Previously, when searching for something like https://mywebsite/particular-page/ , I could type "particular" in the url window and FF would offer the full url. Now, there is no such behavior and I have to think of the opening url and complete many more characters to get the result that previously was very simple and quick.

I have tried separating the search from the url window but that has no affect on this behavior.

I have working "firefox developer" with "firefox-dev" profile. I want to migrate to stable "firefox", but release firefox show message

You've launched an older version of Firefox

Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox.

so what can i do to migrate? is it possible to migrate to profile with lower firefox version?
