I have a content filter to filter out inappropriate material. Included in the filter are filters for adult content on wikipedia, youtube,and google podcasts. however, all those sites are fully allowed on Firefox, as opposed to on Safari and google chrome where the filter is working properly

Transferring Firefox bookmarks from a dead Mac's hard drive

Hi. I'm trying to transfer Firefox bookmarks from a hard drive pulled from a now dead iMac (was IOS 10.13.4 + Firefox 116.6.0) to a MacBookPro laptop running BigSur (11.6.8) and Firefox 122.0.1. I have the iMac HDD plugged into a hot swap docking station. A search for places.sqlite on the old HD turns up nothing.

I have found answers for drilling down into Windows to find the appropriate files to transfer, but not for Mac. I didn't know Firefox Sync existed until now, and I don't know where to look for a profile on the hard drive. Suggestions?

Edit:

Ok, this is going to be a bigger problem that I thought. The laptop is my wife's old university-owned mac, and there's a whole "admin" layer of hidden and mixed-up folders. I need to go see the admins for help.

Thanks a lot anyway, though. I did learn a lot in the process :)

I used to access RAI (Italian TV) no problem until I upgraded my op system to Ventura 13.6.4 two days ago. Now when I try to log in to RAI from Firefox (latest version) I get the following message from the RAI system "window.gigya is undefined" . Even though my credentials are correct, the RAI platform does not allow me to log in to my account. This is a Firefox issue and not a RAI issue. I know this because I can access my RAI account and see TV content no problem via SAFARI. Perhaps there is a setting in Firefox I need to change. At the moment I am using Firefox with the standard settings (no changes to settings since I reinstalled Firefox in my machine today)

I have Ooma as my phone provider. I can't get into Ooma's login site because I get this message at every try:

"The page isn't redirecting properly"

I occasionally get this message when opening Firefox, but a retry always works. Not when trying to get into my Ooma account. And yet it works without any problem on Safari. I would prefer to use Firefox.

Hello, my mac ran out of battery. When I restared it, the firefox page restarted, but I can't see it. When I click on it in the app scrolling menu, nothing turns up. It's like it is there, but as a ghost, invisible. When I close down firefox, and restart, it's still exactly the same. I had hundreds of tabs open there, and I don't want to loose that session. When I open a new window, it works, but I can't make the prevous one appear. What is going on, what to do? I'm quite desperate about it, already spent hours looking for solutions.

I wish you would stop carrying articles from sources that do not allow pocket subscribers to read them without an individual subscription to the article source. One notable example is the New York Times. it is not possible to read an article from them because when someone clicks on the article of interest, it is not visible unless that person signs up for a subscription to the NYT. So, for all of your readers who like to peruse interesting and thought provoking articles, but do not wish to sign up for multiple subscriptions, why even carry articles from sources that cannot be read to start with? this is VERY annoying! Thanks.

I turned off the translator popup via about:config and browser.translations.automaticallyPopup to false. Now translation is gone. How can I keep the option to quickly translate a page in the address bar without having the popup jump in my face each time I open a new tab, forcing me to click it to make it go away? This would be a nice option but an extremely distracting presentation. thanks.
