Hi!

From reading Mozilla online documentation, I foolishly assumed that my previous lots-of-tabs session would simply open up in 64-bit Firefox after uninstalling the 32-bit one and installing 64-bit Firefox. This didn't happen at all, and I can't find the Session manager folder anywhere. Help please?

Hello,

since yesterday after closing FF to restart, I encountered a problem. Everytime, when I try to open FF, it says that the profile isn´t available or not accessible.

I tried already to rename in /library/Application Support/Firefox, Profiles.ini -> Profiles.iniOLD and the folder Profiles -> ProfilesOLD.

As well I tried to call the Profile Manager from terminal using the below commands, since FF isn´t open. /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -ProfileManager

No matter, whether I rename the profile.ini or try to call the profile manager. Each time I get the same warning, that the profile isn´t available.

Since I tried every possible solution, which I could find on the help pages, I hope to find help from the community.

best regards Corey

Alright, basically I backed up my PC before I wiped it. Then decided to move from chrome to firefox. But there is an issue, I can't migrate my passwords because google chrome will not read my old LOGIN DATA file and refuses to create a CSV either. So basically I can't import about a decade worth of passwords into firefox because of a flaw in chrome's design, fantastic.

So I thought, well, surely if there are program that let you read SQL files (such as the LOGIN DATA file) if you have the password, firefox must be able to do this to right? Well no. Apparently not.

I am not sure if this is the correct place to formally request a QoL feature but I would really, REALLY, like to be able to import my passwords directly from chrome's LOGIN DATA file, I have the master password.

It was my mistake to back up my files thinking that would be enough, I should have known better and double checked if chrome could not read its own native files. But now im screwed. Help. Please.

I found this question from 5 years ago https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1097979 and it looks like the accepted answer still works today for normal releases of Firefox.

e.g. this URL works:

https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-91.0.2-partial-91.0.1&os=win&lang=en-US&force=1

However the URL format for Firefox Developer Edition doesn't seem to accept version strings, so I can't find MARs for devedition

e.g this URL works for devedition: https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-devedition-latest&os=linux64&lang=en-US

But these two don't (the second would be the pattern for a MAR): https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-devedition-92.0b8&os=linux64&lang=en-US https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-devedition-92.0b9-partial-92.0b8&os=linux64&lang=en-US

Presumably MAR files are available for devedition?

It did not work for me for my Norton password manager. I talked to Norton support and they are saying that everything on their end is working fine because I am able to use my password manager on my phone on a different system. They are saying it is Firefox. Can someone help me with this.

Due to switching to a Linux distro with a slightly older version of Firefox, Firefox is complaining about the profile I copied in. The profile's compatibility.ini file says LastVersion=91.0.20210812023606/20210812023606. The current Firefox version is 90.0.2. Has the structure of the profile changed between these versions? If not, what's the best way to alter compatibility.ini?

I have multiple computers, all Win10, All use Firefox. Recently one computer the HD crashed. I reinstalled Win10, Firefox, and a couple of other MS programs, all used on the other computers. The other computers all updated to 91.0.1, The new install is also 91.0.1. If I try to go to Google.com on the newly installed computer I get: Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

All the other computers search and go to Google just fine. So it is obvious it is something new between Google, Firefox and Win 10, the version of Win10 is 19042.1165 (win10 home) I have searched (using Edge and Bing) for some type of answer, but everything is from 2015/16 and older. Firefox when first installed, before the 91 update on Aug 20th, did work, it was after the Aug 20th update Google (and Bing) stopped with the security issue. I do not care for Edge or Bing, I hope someone can give me some ideas. Thankyou in advance.

I stupidly allowed my Firefox to "up"grade from FF90 to FF91. This has caused the padded spaced-out menus to return, which I had managed to fix in the previous version, but the fix does not work in FF91.

I cannot work with the increased vertical spacing of the menus. It bugs me, it annoys me, and it pi..., that is to say, it gets me very cross.

Since Mozilla in their un-wisdom have decided to deny us the possiblility of customising the vertical spacing to suit our needs, but have instead decided to dictate the increased spacing, I would like to roll back to FF90 and disable upgrades until such time as Mozilla decide to listen to their users and allow customisation - would it really hurt to do that, Mozilla?

In the meantime, how can I best roll back to FF90? Can I download it from somewhere? How can I install it without losing bookmarks, settings, and css file?

Am running FF 91.0 64-bit on Windows 10. Until not very long ago, the pop-up notification of a new release included an option to see what was in it before taking action. Now my only choices are Download or Dismiss. I like to know what I'm getting into before I get into it; how do I do that? Presently I can edit info on my present version (for example) https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/91.0/releasenotes/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-desktop&utm_campaign=about-dialog by changing 91.0 to 91.0.1 - when I know the new version number - but there must be a better way to avoid flying blind.

I'm currently running Firefox 88.0.1 on Windows. When Firefox first released 91.0 I updated but quickly reinstalled an older version, I hate the new look with the floating tabs and oversimplified colors. One of the reasons I use Firefox is cause it doesn't look like a Chrome wannabe. But now I can't open my browser without it prompting me to update. I would like to stay up to date for security reasons and the such. Is there anyway I can keep the old Firefox look and still update?

Does anybody know where the ID: 308046B0AF4A39CB comes from?

If you use a Windows 10 1909 64 Bit and you can find this in the installs.ini and in the profiles.ini of users, if you have a Firefox ESR 64 Bit in Version 78.10.0 installed. The INI-Files looks like this:

Installs.ini: [308046B0AF4A39CB] Default=Profiles/8U9skky2.default-esr Locked=1

Profiles.ini: [Install308046B0AF4A39CB] Default=Profiles/8U9skky2.default-esr Locked=1

[Profile0] Name=default-esr IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/8U9skky2.default-esr

[General] StartWithLastProfile=0 Version=2

This ID can vary if you have a 32 bit ESR-installation as well and the only place I could find it is in the registry

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\Firefox\TaskBarIDs] C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox=308046B0AF4A39CB

But also here it differs sometimes.

I need to know where the ID comes from and if I can rely that if this ID is used, I will always address the Firefox ESR 64 Bit no matter which version.

Firefox is seriously messed up after upgrading to version 91. Many websites that had color and objects on the page now are just black and white with most content missing. For example Google Calendar has lost all color. The issue impacts most websites - some with moderate impact and others with serious impact. Basically Firefox 91 is no longer usable.

How do I fix this?

After updating to 91 version almost all my addons stopped working in private mode.

When FF team decided to block all addons for private mode there was a setting in about:config to allow all adons to work in private mode, but it looks like it is removed in 91 (?) or renamed (?).

So, how to enable all addons to work in private mode at once ? I have a lot and clicking each one in its settings will take a lot of time.

For unfortunate reasons too tedious and mundane to discuss here, I am stuck with Mac/OS 10.11.6. I am looking for a version of Firefox that will run under that version of Mac/OS. I did the basic research and was directed Firefox version 78. After that, I was directed to the Extended Support Release. When I downloaded and ran that, I was directed to the Apple App Store where no version of Firefox could be found. Where to next?

Can someone offer me a link to a version of Firefox that I can download and run on Mac/OS 10.11.6? Please.
