Why has firefox deleted my bookmarks, It's getting as bad as microsoft. Don't ask just screw us over and no answers to fix it. Problem is this bullshit has been going on for years and it is still a problem,why can't this be fixed or stopped. I now have to try and find how to get all my log ins for banking and alot of other important sites. I see below you have some educated guesses, well I don't need guesses I need the problem fixed. I fear downloading from your site as it might destroy more of my system. I don't see no dam window at the top.

How can I get my bookmarks back and stop it happening again.Please.

It seems a virus is avoiding the correct working of this plug-in: Ummy video downloader appears every time I try to download a video clicking on SaveFrom.net. I tried to reinstall Firefox, but unsuccessfull: is there any other way to remove this Ummy video downloader? By the way I never give consent to install it so for me it is undesired like a virus.

When watching on Crunchyroll, the video pops out with PIP but the subtitles continue showing in the main player. It uses "softsubs" so maybe there is a compatibility issue between Firefox PIP and Crunchyroll's player?

Just checked Firefox Monitor for any breaches on my emails. A new alert from a couple of days ago showed up for LiveJournal from 3 years ago. I don't remember making an account but wouldn't be surprised if I did. I went to the site to delete the account and when I entered my email in to the forgotten username page the site tells me "No username(s) for this e-mail address: [The email that showed up on the breach.]"

If the website can't find anything even attached to that email is there anything I should or even can do to protect my email, info, etc?

I don't remember ever using the site and don't believe I put any personal info on it but if there is anything I should do I would rather be safe than sorry.

Thanks for your help!

I want to know how to sync from my phone to my computer not from my computer to my phone. My computer sync data is corrupted and there's no backup files, while my phone still has all it's files. Firefox was spiking my ram usage by 60% or more yesterday so I uninstalled and reinstall it even though the old and new was both the latest version. When I signed on again, my computer sync data would not bring back my bookmarks, passwords, add-ons, etc..

That's why I want to know how to sync from my phone to my computer, but now my phone can't even sync, if I sync it the date doesn't change at all that it was last sync today. it shows the very last time i sync on my phone which was a month ago. I tried looking up this problem and there were some people who had same problem a few years ago but they still have their files. I have zero files of backup of anything on my computer

Recently, a user has been having issues with their Firefox profiles. They will get an error along the lines of "Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks" with an Exit and a Create New Profile button.

Things we've tried in no particular order:

  • Setting the original profile as default (temporary solution)
  • Transferring bookmarks to a new profile (temporary solution)
  • Making sure Firefox is up to date (prompted again)
  • Checking for issues in the profiles.ini values (none)

The prompt always seems to come back 24 hours after a temporary solution is put in place. Many other users had the same issue, but theirs did not seem to persist.

Any help is appreciated as I'm currently stumped on the issue and can't find much on it.

I am using Firefox 76.0.1

I can no longer log in to my sse.co.uk account. The page just shows loading for ever.

I have tried: using standard security settings and disabling all add-ons.

I can also no longer log in to myus.com account. The page just returns to the login page.

I have tried using standard security settings and disabling add-ons.

These issues only exist since update to Firefox to 76.0.1

Facebook used to be ok, now stubbornly refuses to open. Acer Laptop, Windows 10, Firefox 76. Have emptied cache, cookies, history file, and pretty much everything. Nothing has any effect. When I seek to log in, I get message saying 'The page isn't redirecting properly' An error occurred during a connection to accept cookies. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies. Have tried to access Facebook using Edge, but get caught up in an endless loop. Is there something wrong with Laptop? I can access facebook on my mobile using Firefox. Any help appreciated. Cheers Chris

I have a website, a typical three column design, with NAV, MAIN and ASIDE elements. A reader view option appears in Firefox, but ironically, only the ads in my ASIDE element show up when I click it.

The MAIN content uses SUMMARY/DETAILS to group things. Personally, I would think this combination would scream reader view content, yet MAIN is ignored entirely. It has some links, but so does my ASIDE (advert) content.

My ads are simple blurbs and links, no pictures, for my own ebooks, and are not served by a third party, so I can see how they could get picked up and I'm fine with that. What puzzles me is why the MAIN content is being ignored.

The site in question is: https://waxphilosophic.sdf.org/erotica/ It is marginally safe for work provided you do not click any of the links. No explicit images.

As a test, I even tried changing the SUMMARY/DETAIL of my "What's New" section to ARTICLE followed by an H2 heading. No change in behavior. https://waxphilosophic.sdf.org/erotica/test.html

The HTML passes the W3 validator. I searched Firefox Help / Stack Exchange. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Restore Previous session "works", but sometimes loads a "previous session" from 2 months ago, sometimes loads the actual previous session from yesterday??

Hey guys, I've read a ton of articles, and searched a long while, for the answer to this "interesting", and it seems also rare problem?

Background: my laptop has a shit battery and needs to be plugged in almost all the time, or it dies. So when I got from home to work (and vice versa), it sometimes doesn't make it home even before dying (even on standby/sleep).

Anyways, that part is OK, I just plug it back in when I reach my destination and turn on the computer. Problem is, with the Firefox program, although it always gives me the button to Restore Previous Session, sometimes it will load (correctly) the actual previous session, but other times, it will load a "previous session" that I had open 2+ months ago!

Yah it's weird. I feel like I'm playing roulette when I restore previous session on Firefox... Will I get the actual previous session with all the tabs I really need, or will I get the tabs from 2 months ago that I have no need for...

Anyways, I can't seem to figure out 1) how it can do both (either open last session, or 2 months old session) 2) how it decides which one it will load this time

Any help would be appreciated. When it loads the 2 month old session, I lose all the tabs I was currently working on, so I'd like Firefox to always load the actual previous session, and not all these super old tabs that no longer are important for me.

Cheers!

Since reinstalling Windows, I can no longer change my bookmarks in the order I want. Every time I try to put the bookmarks in order, the links jump back to a different position. However, not in an alphabetical order, but according to my own rules, completely confused. So I have to look for everything now. What can trigger something like that?
