Download doesn't even prompt, link just doesn't open the save file window, while dling a (1.3gb) file from gdrive (cannot run virus scan warning). Using linux with ff 91.0.2 (64bit) for manjaro linux - written below that is "Manjaro - 1.0" Similar problem with this and other the same kind https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1305970 except none of the solutions seem to work, tried to disable everything and add gdocs to all whitelists. Works perfect with same sync in windows 7, even with ALL protections and addons ENABLED. Also works in linux with chrome based browser. So it kind of has to be firefox (this manjaro edition) error?

There used to be plugins in much older version of FFox, but those days are gone. I understand that the Sync function allows sharing of login/passwords between several machines, but is there any way to simply backup login/passwords of one computer that does not share anything with any other computer. There does not seem to be any way to do this -searching FFox help yields nothing.

Sometimes, the simple ways work well, and this would be such an occasion. This function ought to be built in to every software program, but unfortunately this does not happen.

Thanks for reading

I installed the last update, my bookmarks kept being here but all my add-on, website shortcuts and firefox settings got removed. I checked the profiles to see if it was just another profile that was created but after checking each profile that was available they were all with the defaults settings without shortcuts and without add-on. I cannot recall all the add-on and websites saved so it is very important for me to recover them. What can I do?

1. Current environment: Windows 10 21H1, 19043.1202 2. I updated the Firefox from 91.0.2 to 92.0 by Mozilla Maintenance Service, but when I checked the Uninstall Panel, the former version 91.0.2 was found still there. Besides, though I can uninstall the older one, the latest version will crash due to its dependence on the previous one. 3. The former one should be completely overridden with no leftovers in Registry when it is updated. 4. The problem seems to have been recurring since version 90.0 . 5. Sincerely hope the problem can be fixed as soon as possible. 6. My thanks to the community for their contributions.

ERR_ADDRESS_INVALID Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have reset DNS server address, flushed, reset, and cleaned the cache in cmd prompt, even power cycled my router and modem, after turning off network settings and airplane mode. This only happens with Firefox and is preventing me from reinstalling it after having to uninstall it due to update issues.

A few hours ago I installed firefox on an old laptop, logged in, synced my bookmarks etc. Everything went fine except for that this laptop was having the default dark theme and it synced this theme with my main laptop. Now I can't find the theme that my main laptop was using.

I've tried: - Searching for it in about:addons - Searching for it in https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/themes/ in my personal profile

How do I find the theme I was using for my main laptop again? it was a default firefox theme which had purple/orange as the main colors.

I had some kind of hard disk failure last night which completely borked windows and firefox (in fact, all my browsers, none of would even open or go online), firefox reported it lacked xpcom.

So I had to re-install windows and am trying to recover what i can.

I do have a saved profile dated yesterday but when i copy and paste its contents into firefox, it doesn't take and much of what is in the old profile doesn't even appear in the new one after pasting a total of several thousand items.

Is there any way back as I have lost over 10 years work and bookmarks?
