I have been using Windows 10, and Firefox for emails. Yesterday Firefox updated to its latest version. When I went to open Firefox today I can get and send emails, but all my folders and subfolders where I save important emails, are gone, nowhere to be seen.

Does anyone know where they might have gone and how to retrieve them? Thanks for your help! I am a "not computer savy" senior..

Have new mac with catalina & installed Firefox browser ok last week. Now it's suddenly missing from apps folder !. Trying to re-install but keeps failing....download 77.0.1.dmg ok. click & open creates small firefox icon & popup message instructing to drag the icon onto the Application folder icon in the dock. This causes the app store to open but with a message saying 'unable to connect to app store' when I close the message the app store is open but no sign of the firefox app. New download or reboot have no effect. What am I doing wrong? Regards Phil

Please Note: I Write and modify Plugins alot. This is not about plugins/extentions or dealing things plugins can do. This is about FireFox it self.

My wife keeps getting a popup message, "Can't update Firefox to the latest version. Download a fresh copy and we'll help you install it." But she has the latest version, she has automatic updates, and when she downloads and installs it manually, it's the same version as before, and she keeps getting the popup message.

She has MacBook Pro, 13" using the Mojave OS Version 10.14.6, Firefox version 77.0.1 (64-bit).

Microsoft will not let me use Opera without having to reinstall it every time Windows updates. I've been using Opera for 4 years and all my data and bookmarks are there. Firefox does not give the option to import from OPERA!!! "Other browsers" never includes Opera. Help? Anyone know how to import from the browser I've been using for years?

Hi,

I have a new computer and installed Firefox as my web browser. I have also Firefox on my old computer and could by signing in to my Firefox accounts get all my settings and bookmarks in the Firefox on the new computer. On my old computer after opening Firefox there is a bar at the top with from left to right, File, Edit, History, Bookmarks, Tools, and Help. After opening Firefox on my new computer, that bar is not there. Can you please tell me how to get that bar also on my new computer in Firefox.

Thanks, Bert Schmitz

Hi,

I've encountered my fair share of bugs. I'm also disabled, so I need a lot of safety and accessibility fixes to use any browser.

Debugging advice often involves ""safe" mode," which disables some safety and accessibility tools, or "refresh Firefox," or otherwise using new profiles, which require me to set up the safety and accessibility tools before I can do anything. (For example, by default Firefox uses blinking cursors, autoscroll, and smooth scrolling, all of which trigger my migraines.)

In the past I've sometimes copied specific items, or cleared out a new profile folder and copied everything from an already-set-up profile folder.

Are there better or worse ways to copy bookmarks, saved passwords, about:config settings, user css, add-ons, and add-on settings?

(The previous time I asked this, I somehow got diverted to the wrong forum.)
