Hi there

This seems to be an known issue.

I deinstalled my Firefox and it created autmatically Desktop\Firefox\old data

I want to transfer my old data (esp. for my PW+Logins) and it goes nowhere

I found the files keys4 and login, copied to my actual Folder (after reinstalling). But it doesnt do anything.

I also copied the whole "old data" Folder to the new directory and overwrote it. Didn't help either.

Is there any way to get my old Logins/PW from this old data Folder or is it just a wast of time ?

Thank you for helping.

Best,

I switched from windows 10 to 11 and to a new laptop. Here in my new laptop Asus tuf 15 ,even though it has better RAM , internet connection, cache memory, cores the FIREFOX doesnot function properly. It's extremly laggy specially when I use YOURUBE . In my earlier HP laptop with 8 GB ram I could use 10-15 tabs at one time .It would still not lag . It could do web development at the same time I could watch youtube tutorials. But now I barely open 4-5 tabs the youtube starts freezing up to the extent that I really get frustrated. Please so something or I will have to switch to BRAVE browser or something.

I have used Firefox with sync since sync were released. Today (25th dec), all of a sudden hundreds of saved passwords are gone, just 9 out of at least 200.

I have changed the password for my account and logged in. Tried to logout and login again but just 9 passwords is found, extremely frustrating!

Anyone got a clue what has happened?

Dear Community,

Just like to ask how I could get Firefox to show a dark mode for all apps that I open, please? I know that changing the settings on Firefox to Dark makes the browser show only a dark mode. However, when I search for other sites, they show up as a white background. How can I change this, please?

On a legacy iMac with over ten years of Firefox usage, I suddenly cannot sign in. The mac caps out at High Sierra 10.13.6 and I am unable to activate sync. I have tried allowing all cookies, restarting the browser several times, and even explored the config files.... to no avail.

How do I "enable local storage"? that's the error that sync provides me, but there is no option to fix that and all of your help files point me to cookies information (which I have done everything with). There are no actual help files to fix the local storage problem. This is frustrating!

Do I have to uninstall the entire application? If so, how to I preserve my bookmarks and pws without also porting over whatever is broken in the application?

How to block the full screen function permanently at the same time that all menus are hidden, invisible, when you press the full screen button so that the video one gives a larger image without giving full screen. I have previously found a firefox program that could do that, but unfortunately I got it deleted.

Want to use the solution on a Win 10 PC, desktop PC and a screen of 1.5 m, i.e. 2 screens in one.
