I am using MaCos Monterey and had firefox with several extensions. I had an issue with accessing one website that caused my firefox to lock up several times and firefox built a new profile and I lost so much work I have done with my extensions. I have a folder on my desktop now called old firefox data but so many conflicting articles on how to restore. After this I doubt I will keep using firefox but need to restore this data. anyone have a suggestion on how?

I upgraded to 64 bit given my machine seemed to be up to spec to handle it, and hopefully avoid a lot of the crashing it's been doing lately. However, I lost my passwords. I have a password manager, but it was convenient with Firefox having them, and my cached sites, bookmarks, and other stuff. Not the end of the world, but would make my life easier having this back. Any ideas?

I looked through some articles to try and find the text or JSON files with this info, but no luck - either under the Firefox install files, or my Windows profile files. I also thought of uninstalling, just the 64 bit version, but not sure if the 32 bit will still be there when I'm done.

Unfortunately I never used the Mozilla/Firefox "sync" feature until now - so I didn't have them saved to the cloud. Any ideas?

Thanks, Tom

AW18 500GB mSata refused to boot. Used MiniTool Pro 12.6 to attempt recover to new Installed new mSATA, new copy of Win7Pro, no joy. Put mSata into USB enclosure, copied all 423GB to 5 TB drive, to use as source for profile. READ many versions of support pages here, copied whole "old" profile from \Roaming\profile to new drive \profiles folder. No Joy. Created NEW profile, shutdown FF, copied 'old" folder to new, restarted, no joy. Deleted NEW profile, tried copying just the logins.json, key4.db overwriting default profile files, no joy. Tried copying profile from original 500GB mSATA in case the copying to 5TB was corrupt ( used Total Commander copy with verify) I think I have tried almost all the various solutions, still no joy. Anybody have any solutions to try ( both very recent FF versions ( last two weeks) ? Thanks in advance!

Hello!

I had a quick question regarding ARM-based packages for Firefox. I have looked through your directory listing here and I do not see any ARM-based packages.

I have however found ARM packages for Linux on sites like this one but I would much prefer some official pre-built packages or binaries from Firefox if possible.

Thanks!
