I just got this new computer and want to transfer my FireFox bookmarks and history to it. I cannot access my old account because I do not have access to that email anymore, and you require me to get a code sent to that email to log in. That is still on my old computer that was originally running Windows 8, and has been deteriorating ever since Microsoft jammed Windows 10 down it's throat.

I might still be able to export the bookmarks if there is some way to do that.

The best way would be if I could access to that old account without needing to access bonin006@umn.edu my current email is wayne@nano-dyne.com

Please see if there is a way to help me.

Thanks, Wayne Bonin

After downloading an update, the only thing that I can click that works is the Firefox button. Once in Firefox, when I click anything, the window appears for a millisecond and disappears. So I can go nowhere.

I am communicating using my iPhone, not the computer with the problem.

For a long time I've used Firefox on Linux with multiple instances each with their own profile folder. Today when I try to run these instances with separate profile folders I get the following error:

> Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.

Profiles are created like this:

firefox --new-instance --createprofile "PROFILENAME ~/.firefox-PROFILENAME"

They are run like this:

firefox --new-instance --profile "~/.firefox-PROFILENAME"

It seems something has broken with the instance isolation as this is now throwing an error. Additionally I run "createprofile" it doesn't seem to actually create the folder.

firefox setup 127.0.2.exe offline installer fails with message about "extraction failed" and popup "file is corrupt".

Windows explorer shows file properties and a signature for mozilla.

Is there a way to manually unpack the .exe? Someplace that issues are logged with more data (which file is corrupt?) There is a progress bar that flashes by part way, then a popup window with the file corrupt message.

(Trying to update to hopefully get rid of some crashes.)

Is there a hash for that .exe I could check?

I Have Had It Installed On Microsoft Edge For About A Year With No Problems. I Had It Installed For About 3 Months On Firefox Then I Needed To Install It Again & I Get The Above Messages. Why Is It Doing This? There Hasn't Been Any Harm Done To My Computer. Also Firefox Needs A Customer Service Phone Number For People To Call & Explain Their Issues It's A Lot Quicker & Easier To Solve Your Problem.

I am on ESR on my older Mac running OS10.12.16, in order to operate Quicken 2007. However I also use a newer Mac, running OS 14.5. When I transferred my data to the newer Mac, Firefox stayed at the ESR version. Can i run a newer version of Firefox on one mac and still operate the older Mac on the ESR version? If so, how so?

For a week or better I have been unable to download anything through my Firefox browser, I have refreshed and uninstalled Firefox (I had to reinstall through another browser) in an attempt to fix this issue to no avail. I cannot download from verified sites, nor am I able to download Firefox's own extensions or themes (when I attempt I get an error telling me to check my connection, screenshot included).

I would like to be able to use Firefox normally again, with the ability to download files and install my extensions restored.

I want help to recover bookmarks and password saved on my Firefox browser.

There was a issue with my Windows 11, due to which I was not able to boot on to Windows, hence I don't have the option to export the profile etc. Due to this the only option for me was to copy all the data on C drive through cmd prompt. After having taken all data back, I have reinstalled windows and firefox.

I did some search on the internet to locate the profile files so that I can get back my bookmarks and passwords. However I am unable to locate the same.

Request some guidance and help on this.

thanks Nitin

I was trying to download ledger live from an official site when I noticed Firefox had twice tried and failed to download an old version of the tor browser I downloaded a long time ago.

A few hours before this happened my pc froze for a minute.

I'm not sure if I have malware on my device or if this is Firefox acting up. My antivirus scan shows nothing.

But to access them, I have to click on Bookmarks and then go down to Manage bookmarks and click on it. Then I see them on the page that has all the Import and Backup access on it. How do I get them to appear in the side panel as a list like they did on my old computer?
