Hi there,

i'd like to copy my Firefox profile from PC1 to a new PC2;

Last time i tried this, i ended up with PC2 having the same "name" as PC1 in "Sync". This caused weird sync issues, as the system thought my PC2 was PC1 as vice versa.

So, is it possible to copy my entire profile with all addons/settings, BUT, make "Sync" recognize it as a NEW pc ?


Thank you in advance :-)

How to completely disable Google translator pop-up

Hi there!

I have the issue that when I enter a website that is in English, I sometimes get a little Google translator pop-up at the top which asks me to translate the page. As I am fully fluent in English, I would like to disable this but the option "Disable for English" does not seem to do anything, as this keeps happening. I can disable it for an individual website but I would like to disable it completely.

I'm also confused because within Firefox I have only selected US English as a preferred language. My laptop itself is set to German.

I don't have any translator add-ons installed and can't figure out where this pop-up even comes from, let alone how to fully disable it.

If anyone could help, I'd be very grateful!

Anne

Hello,

When I try to open Outlook by using Firefox it does not. (Installed MS Office 365). When I use Microsoft Edge it does open so I can read the messages. I cleared the cache and it works the first time but when I try to access it again, it does not work. It just not upload the message.

Thank you, Dorina Grossu

My bookmarks disappeared mysteriously yesterday while I was using the browser. All of them (I have a lot), there's nothing in the bookmarks toolbar. I use Firefox on two different machines regularly, and yesterday the second machine was fine, bookmarks still there. Today I logged on and the second computer had lost its bookmarks too.

I tried restoring. It worked on my other computer, no problem, all bookmarks returned. However, on this one the restore points are visible, but when I click them, nothing happens. I have tried restarting Firefox, no luck. Any ideas?

I used to watch the TED videos using the links in their email. Then some time ago they stopped playing. It accesses the website and video but there is a circle going around and nothing happens. I tested the same on Microsoft Edge and it works. I do not like Edge and hopefully, you can solve this issue because it is important. I have looked at all the solutions online but they do not fix the problem. I use Windows 11 and everything is up to date.

Mozilla Maintenance Service version issue in Windows Apps & Features (Add/Remove Programs)

When Mozilla Firefox is installed from the installer, it (optionally?) installs the Mozilla Maintenance Service.

In Windows, the Apps & Features (old: Add/Remove Programs) list adds the Mozilla Maintenance Service in the list of programs it can uninstall. The version number entered here is the version number of the Mozilla Maintenance Service upon installation.

Other methods of updating Firefox may update this service (current release version: 102.0.1.8221) - however, the version number contained within the Windows Apps & Features (old: Add/Remove Programs) list is never updated, and will instead display the original installation's version number.

I'd like to recommend that this be fixed, so that the version displayed in Apps & Features (old: Add/Remove Programs) always displays the current version installed.

(One of those flaky "software updater" utilities pointed this one out to me. "You have an old version of the Mozilla Maintenance Service installed!" yes, if you go by the numbers offered by the Apps & Features list...

I no longer see a box that contains a variety of search engine choices. I have been using DuckDuckGo and am very dissatisfied with it now. I'd love to know which one(s) people recommend (not google, bing etc, please!) and what the steps are now to changing DDG as my default to this new one? Many thanks (I'm a senior and quite computer literate unless the reply contains tech language I might not understand...)

I cannot seem to reach https://community.esri.com/ via Firefox but can reach it fine with Chrome and Edge.

Firefox says "The page isn’t redirecting properly. An error occurred during a connection to community.esri.com. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

So I even added the page to list of Exceptions, but still cannot reach site.

I'm trying to sign into/sync Firefox on a new phone. It keeps saying I need to get code from authenticator app. I don't have one! I try to scan IR code from computer, but it still requires a code. Sometimes it says it is sending a code to my email address. It does not. I ask it to resend code but it never does. I am logged into Firefox on my computer, is there a way to turn off the authenticator or otherwise solve this problem?

I have Firefox installed and set as my default browser and yet my Registry shows the following: Open with Application Issue "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" %1 HKCR\ftp\shell\open Open with Application Issue "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" %1 HKCR\htmlfile\shell\open Open with Application Issue "%ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -nohome HKCR\VisioViewer.Viewer\shell\open

Since Firefox is set as my default browser I would have expected to see Firefox here in these registry entries as my default browser in lieu of Internet Explorer. However, if I delete those Registry entries, it then breaks any embedded links in MS Programs such as Outlook mail and Excel. I have I.E as non-active (i.e. unchecked in Programs) but the system still seems to rely on I.E for opening any embedded links. Any suggestions as to how to fix this problem would be appreciated.

I've gone through all of the steps to reset my Firefox browser and attempted to change my search engine from Duckduckgo to Startpage. Every time it works a couple of times then Duckduckgo hijacks the search engine back to itself. I've deleted this search engine, reset my browser, said yes to prompts by Startpage to be the default browser, and tried everything that I can think of. Very, very frustrating. And I start to worry about the security of the Firefox browser itself. Any ideas?

Thanks, David
