Restoring history from a second device with Sync

Hello,

IT support wiped my browser history on Laptop A. I also have Laptop B, which hasn't been used in a couple of weeks, and which is connected to Laptop A through Sync. Ideally I'd like to import the history from Laptop B to Laptop A, as this would be an almost total restore.

Laptop A losing its history is the most recent activity though, and I'm worried that as soon as I open Firefox on Laptop B, Sync will overwrite B's history with the (now blank) history from A.

So, is it possible to get B's data onto A through Sync, without A wiping B? Can I generate a backup from B through other means without Sync overwriting it?

Many thanks,

Charlotte

I used Firefox for over a year, suddenly after an update I imagine a bottom bar has appeared, like "find" and every time I try to type anything in a search bar it jumps to the bottom that becomes pink... SOOOOOOO annoying. How can I get rid of it forever???? Sorry, do not know a proper name for this trouble!!! I wish it was clearly stated if I want this "update" and how I can get rid of it. I stopped updating anything at all at this stage! It drives me absolute bonkers, I am thinking of deleting firefox completely! Yes I use windows7 and love it, do not want to switch to 10. I have no clue what version of firefox I am using, I was updating when prompted, but fed up with this pink bar, like it sits in my livers now!!!

You cannot remove them by using the 'forget about this site' feature and if you change the browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus to 'False' you don't get the suggestions. Can you tell me how to permanently remove Search with Google or Search with Amazon from the suggestions. Thank you.

Firefox is up to date, cache and all temporary files have been deleted, system has been restarted multiple times, have tried disabling ad-blockers and all security...

ALL other sites are working perfectly. but when trying to access evga.com or any EVGA pages I get a blank white page with no errors, just plain white.

if I use Internet Explorer, Edge, or Chrome the site shows and works fine.

what could be causing this issue?

This applies elsewhere, I imagine, but my current problem is "apple.news" links.

I get sent these links but don't use them. (No interest in being under surveillance by Apple.)

I tried to set them up in Multi-account containers, so that I can send them to a ghetto, but at least try to use them. I found no way to do this. (I also found the interface clunky and unintuitive.) (I did find how you set a domain there but redirection is long past by the time you can do that.)

(I'm happy setting the Windows registry, designing configuration systems for programs, and the like so making setting is not a terror for me, please don't answer as if I'm a dufus in that regard. Thank you.)

Where do I make a configuration setting to force these containers to do what I want?

I want to install Firefox 80 to an empty custom folder I made called C:\Internet\Firefox. Upon clicking the installer, it states that I've already installed Firefox (picture 1) and I'm not given a choice on where to install it. I'm not 100% sure where that installation installed but I found a Firefox 80 install in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox. I don't want it there, I want it in C:\Internet\FIrefox. How do I custom install when the Installer won't give me any choices and very little information?

NOTE: I have made a video to show the problem, so if my explanation isn't clear, please watch this.

The problem arises only when I try to access the options tab. As soon as I have the options tab open, my PC's memory use skyrockets and doesn't come down, Firefox stalls completely and I have to close FF through the task manager.

This problem has never occured in the past, this has only been happening since a day or 2 ago.

I tried to disable all the add-ons, plug-ins, have the standard light theme. Nothing changed.

I don't really enjoy having to use safemode everytime I want to access the options tab.

Thanks for reading

Suddenly, when I access Yahoo Mail through Firefox, I no longer have any contacts when I click on the Contacts button (shows "No Contacts"). This issue just started and is unique to Firefox because if I access Yahoo Mail through Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome browsers, all of my contacts are there. I have tried clearing the cache and clearing cookies to no avail. All other email functions still work properly in Firefox. Any suggestions?
