Firefox "mobile" bookmarks (5,000 web page links) won't transfer to other browsers!

Locking this thread, please continue here: [/questions/1435156]
My isp for mail has gone cheapo and dropped me from using mail as a back up to send any portion of the 5000 links I had on Firefox...so please don't ask if I can send them. Even click and drag only works ONE bookmark at a time (it just disappears if I drag a bunch whether 10 or 4000!).

   I am trying to get the bookmarks easily onto other browsers such as Chrome, Yahoo or lastly, gmail.  All of these have the simplest of directions, either to "export as HTML" or as JSON (from Fri the 13th?!).  In any event, they worked with ALL other bookmark files/folders, but not the ones within the mobile bookmarks on f.fox.
   How in heck am I going to be able to export them in a significant #, if Mozilla doesn't have a feature to correct them out of whatever gosh darn format they're in, and let them be unencumbered for direct "export to" or "import to" settiings on other browsers or from the mac/firefox "save as new file".
   At first I thought it was the fact that bookmarks for the mac also get designated as icloud if I move them to desktop sometimes (i.e there's a cute little icon on desk above file/name/pic.  I don't think that is the case as the other bookmarks I've sent would have failed (but they didn't).
  Isn't there a simple app that can extricate these "mobile bookmarks' as they certainly are NOT, and were not posed to me as a issue when I started using SYNC!

Hello,

James here. I CAN NOT find the Firefox application file location. There is no option to show file path upon right click of the desktop icon and I can not locate it in File Explorer. I have done an entire (C:) drive search and turned up nothing. C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local\Mozilla Firefox does not exist in my file system. I am at a loss here and it's driving me bonkers!

Hello Fred McD,

Thanks for getting back to me. First, my computer screen froze (I suspect some interference of a hacker or something).

Anyway, I turned off my computer, waited several minutes, and turned it back on, again. A message came on the screen said I wasn't "signed in." Then, another smaller window came up saying I could "sign in" by clicking on a blue button. But, that didn't work after three tries, so I clicked on the "closed" button. That allowed me very limited access to the internet. A "black" label announcement said that I wasn't signed in - and that my files were inaccessible to me.

It looks like I need a technician, but I presently have no car and I don't know of any technicians who do "House Calls."

I'm also wary of contacting an online technician. One time a year or so ago, I looked up a phone number for Microsoft - and the guy I spoke with had an "Indian" accent. He sort of helped me for a stiff fee. In hindsight, I realized he couldn't possibly have worked for Microsoft - even though he assured me that he did...

Can you or someone on your staff possibly help me. I trust Mozilla Firefox and I'm prepared to pay a reasonable fee.


Thank You, Eric Vollmer

Firefox wasn't working well on a seldom-used laptop, and the update to 100.0.1 didn't go quite right, so I deleted the old version and (using the odious Edge) tried downloading a fresh copy of the software.

But then I get a message from "7-ZIP" that reads "Can not create temp folder archive"

I'm stuck. Advice?

This is not a request for help but a comment on the new version of Firefox. Today a new version of FF was installed on my computer and it wiped out ALL my passwords for EVERY account I own - personal and business. I am extremely pissed off because I have to reset all my passwords (which will take days)! For now on when you offer a new version of FF, warn the individual to back up their passwords and user names.

The question is am I going to keep using FF or just start fresh with another browser to avoid this headache in the future.

You have to up your game.

I hope migration is what I am seeking. I've not used my Desktop for a couple of years. I used my iPhone during that time. I installed my desktop today. I sent myself, on my phone, a number of messages during the past two days and want to view/manipulate/edit them on my desktop.

I have tried everything I can think of, but cannot see those messages. All the messages I see beging with one week ago. Any ideas? I hope I hope. Many thanks.

Dear All:

Suddenly FF starts but shows only a new tab without any content. I can fill in a URL but no reaction. Settings doesn't open. Close tab through X Restart FF. no new tab but message: FF is already running but is not responding. The old FF process must be closed to open in a new window. Click to close. a new empty tab pops up without starting FF manually. Close through X Restart brings the same message as above - no window. Have to end FF in Task Manager.

Uninstalled and reinstalled three times - no change.

I'm using Windows 10 and Avast One, Firewall checked - is open for FF.

I appreciate your comments and help. Best wishes Henning
