On my old Desktop with Windows10, I created and saved my bookmarks as backup *.json file on my backup drive. How do I copy this backup to Firefox on my new Desktop with Windows11? When I installed Firefox on my new Desktop, I don't see any way to access bookmarks (because I haven't copied the *.ison file??)

Today firefox prompted me to "refresh" itself. After doing so, the icon is now blank and won't open saying it's damaged or incomplete. I restarted my mac to see if it might come back, but I continue to get the same error message that firefox is damaged or incomplete.

I downloaded firefox again, but didn't replace the original one on my computer and while it works. I've lost ALL my bookmarks. I waded through ways to get them back but don't believe I ever made a manual copy of my bookmarks.

Is there any way to restore them? I hadn't used a firefox account before either but just made one today.

Thanks

Hi, My two questions don't apply to the same situation, but each could be solved with one solution.

The first question concerns a situation when something breaks & a quick restore & resume is wanted. The second question is about how to abbreviate setting up a new portable Firefox browser.

Firefox Portable 102.01 Portable from PortableApps.com 1.) Can browser settings be backed up to a file and restored? 2.) Is there away to setup a Firefox Portable config by executing some type of file that isn't overly complicated?

Lately, I find myself playing around with multiple instances of Firefox portable and redoing the config is tiresome. I looked for were the settings might be contained, but there might be more than one place depending on the setting.

Thanks for your time and consideration!

After receiving the Firefox update yesterday I can no longer get Youtube TV to work. The main site loads, along with video streaming in the main window of suggested channels, but when I select a given channel, the video won't load and the icon spins, only to return an error message after a few seconds.

Have cleared cookies and cache, restarted Firefox and my Win 10 machine. Works fine in Chrome and all other non-Windows devices. Any thoughts on what can be done? TIA.

I lost my bookmarks when I updated - I have a file on my desktop that is labeled old Firefox data. Nothing I can find explains how to get the old data file back into the new version. Some articles do talk about how to restore lost bookmarks but they all assume I can "see" the old files if I click on the restore tab in bookmarks. That will show me the Old Firefox Data folder, but when I open it none of the file folders appear to contain the HTML data needed.

I am 76 years old and not terribly computer literate. I need rudimentary explanations to solve my problem.

Failing that, can I just go back to my old version that worked?

Thanks,

Hi,

I am using an a simple code software to create business quotations at my work.

When I enter the data the end result shows "US$" instead "$".

I have checked all my W10 language, region, etc settings. Everything is in Canadian English.

All my co-workers get it correctly in "$".

I tried by using Internet Explorer and it correctly showed me "$".

That is how I am assuming it is a Firefox issue. Firefox language is also set as "Canadian English".

Any suggestions?


Thank you.

I am running Windows 11 Build 25151 on a Lenovo X1 Carbon Gen 7. With the last several Builds when selecting an option from a pop-up the FireFox window just stops for up to several minutes, no error message. In other cases cannot select an option necessary continue. In several cases the continue button at the bottom of the popup is not available. I am running FireFox 102.0.1 (64 bit). In most cases, copy address from FF to Microsoft Edge, edge is able to continue.


Not sure if a FireFox or Windows problem.

Hi Colleen,

I’m not able to log into my Bold App to review recurring customer subscription orders using Shopify.

It says that I can't open it because my browser does not allow third party cookies.

How do I change my settings so that I can view third party cookies on Firefox?
