I have been using 64 for quite some time. Just downloaded the new version. All of my bookmarks are gone. When I go to the old 64 just a spinning icon and each tab is completely blank. I'd really like to continue using firefox. Running a business, I have not choice at this point.... had to migrate all tabs to Safari so I can work.

Any ideas? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

My laptop died damaging the registry on my WIN 10 installation, the HD and files are intact, bought a new laptop and want to migrate my old firefox installation (unsynced) I copied over the folder from the roaming folder as per the old way and opening firefox says I should sync the new version,and it has created a new profile folder, obviously I can't sync. Will renaming the old profile the same as the new one work or do I have to down the route of installing an older version of Firefox to migrate successfully?

When bing invades, every time you call up firefox you get bing. When you reset. It remains bing under the name firefox. This has happened on two of my computers, but I am not sure exactly which running board programme contained bing. Aside from difficult experiments windows, not sure how to correct. Why can there not be a firefox which simply cannot be hacked? A big waste of time reconstituting my firefox. Support is of little help.

FF is nagging me to no end to upgrade, from 82.0.3 to whatever. I would prefer to just get rid of the nags if that is possible.

Short of that, the upgrades are NEVER as advertised and always blow up things that are never covered in the upgrade release notes. I get the impression these upgrades are poorly tested. The last site-specific video AutoPlay problem I had took two months to fix -- no thanks to FF support. But I got it fixed. That involved Engineer Buddys at Intel and the source code.

Here I'll ask the same old question and no doubt get the same canned response -- Are there any unexpected blow-ups I need to know about NOT covered in the release notes ? Of course the answer will be No, because the volunteers are not privy to the thinking and failures of the developers.

Let me be clear about this: When/if I upgrade (because the changes wrought in my modified browser will be blown out and I'll need to co-opt more help with that) is there anything extant that will not work ? Anything at all -- especially with respect to video AutoPlay features ?

Upgrade agony got way too old a long, long time ago with respect to settings I had tweaked and got blown out...

Can anyone help with this ?

Preferred solution: Shutdown the upgrade nags.

Hello,

I've been trying to open Firefox and receiving the error "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window.

I've checked the task manager, restarted the computer, re-installed, refreshed and nothing helps, still getting the same error. Any suggestions? Thank you

I’m running a windows 8.1 computer with several open tabs in my browser. This computer crashed and I can’t get back into windows to sync up (I’ve tried booting from various sources, automatic repair, etc. it just won’t boot up). I hope that I’ll be able to extract my important files from my hard drive. I’m setting up a new windows 10 computer. My question is, can I copy over a file from my old computer to my new computer that Firefox will recognize and open up the tabs that I was last working on from my old computer? I have not synced, but the last time that I was able to use my old computer I did close Firefox cleanly, and I was able to log off from windows with no serious issues. Hopefully there is a file that I can copy over which will simply allow me to continue working on my open tabs. Thanks in advance.
