I cannot find this anywhere. As a Topic . I've Reinstalled Firefox several times,and,each time the Browser continues to Import the previous instalations Bookmarks.

Noticed that a small Dialog box pops up stating what is being installed,with 'Importing Previous Bookmarks". Should be an Option on Instalation that handles exactly what is to be described as installed. Supposed there used to be. Since im used to installing w/o 'default settings.

The little check box that denotes 'use old settings,and apps,does nothing.

Have another problem with my Bookmarks. And this is what I need solved Reinstalling Firefox without Importing Previous Bookmarks.

Options for Migrations is not a punn here.

Quite often when I page down to read message from website, then I found I missed something and like to go back one page, page up will bring me back to the top. Upon checking it is because Firefox don't move cursor with page down, the cursor still at the top and thus page up bring me there

It is really inconvenience and if anyway to fix that?

Never had this before. I opened firefox this morning and restored the old tabs as I usually do every morning. They all opened up (e.f. tab with the correct title) but the address is empty and nothing loads.

Attempted in order: - open a new tab, would not even load google, simply a white page - same action on new window, same result - refreshed firefox= nothing - uninstalled firefox = no luck - removed the apps I installed in the last days (visual studio code) - installed firefox from scratch (no account sync) 82.0 (64-bit) nothing at all. Same result see image in attachment.

I also have: removed all cookies/cache (refresh would do any ways), scanned my computer for viruses (nothing found). It doesn't open the options from the menu, it doesn't show anything under about:config

Windows 10 2004

In 15 years I'm using FIrefox I have never seen anything like this :-o

I had to clear History and Cookies on my desktop to get an online purchase done. I was able to add my passwords for every site bar one (afl.com.au). It just won't accept my password despite changing it. Works fine in Brave and Chrome. Also fine on my laptop (didn't clear anything there). Any help sincerely appreciated.

I just logged on and went to Netflix. I was logged in under an account I haven't used in a year. While trouble shooting the issue I discovered the browser updated and synced my old account with my new one. This included passwords and logins that were compromised in data breaches. I don't even use the old computer or any of those passwords. Now I can't even get Netflix to play on there with the correct login data. I took that old account info out and deleted the cookies from compromised accounts. Can anyone tell me how to fix the sites, other than switching away from Firefox entirely?

I am not happy and can't even leave feedback to get real support from the people who did this dumb stunt without even asking me first.

I like the pocket suggestions underneath the the search bar but cannot easily read what I type in the address bar & do not want to be forced to. FF flatly calls this better which is flat out, arrogant none sense as the font size is too small for so many & only causes eye & overall psychological strain. Must I permanently switch to google absent all pocket suggestions to achieve search & navigation in the search bar, in the middle of the page? Seriously. There does not appear to be an option to do so as before. Not allowing the option is at least arrogant & short sighted. Is there any chance FF will show more respect for its users in this respect & allow it?

Hello.

My home page is Google's search pane. However, when I begin to type in my search string, FF throws me up to the address line.

How can I stop FF from moving my search string from the Google search pane (middle of page) up to the address bar?

Many thanks,

Mark
