I used Apple Migration Assistant to move the entirety of my wife's old iMac (the old computer won't accept updates, so her machine was not secure) to a new one. The migration operation appeared smooth and essentially perfect.

Somehow my Bookmarks have overwritten my wife's (years ago, I turned Synch = ON, was that it? Synch is OFF now). The bookmarks are still OK on the old computer, so how do I locate and move that info to the new machine "AND BE SURE TO GET IT RIGHT"? My wife is the family business manager, so her bookmarks are Insurance, Banking, Healthcare, etc.

I've done some searching, but there are thousands of posts, I can't wade through all of that.

After I have started the computer and have opened the Firefox Developer Edition, there is no website content visible - everything is transparent. Links are clickable and context menu opens up, but the content is just transparent (screenshot attached).

When I close & repone the firefox, then usually on 5th to 10th attempt everything starts working until next reboot.

Firefox(Default edition v94.0) is working just fine with no problems on same machine.

When I first noticed this, version was 95.0b3. Now I'm on 95.0b12.

OS is Xubuntu 21.10 and hardware is HP ZBook Power G8 - i5-11400H, Nvida Quadro T600.

I've already tried: 1) opening on safe mode, 2) reinstalling using Ubuntu's "umake" commant line tool, 3) reinstalled by downloading it from https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-devedition-latest-ssl&os=linux64&lang=en-US and copying the files, 4) opening computer using both Nvida's and Intel's built-in gpu

but nothing have worked so far - still the issue persists.


Is there anything else I should try?

Thanks!

Hello,

I’m using firefox-dev under debian linux and since last updates my cron script that was supposed to open a certain url in firefox at a regular schedule stopped working.

I do export DISPLAY=:0 than run firefox $url and all was fine previously but now I always received a message : “Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.”

You can easily reproduce by running : sudo -u $(whoami) /path/to/firefox-dev/firefox https://www.google.com

Can somebody explain what is checked by firefox and why it consider it is not responding instead of just open my url in a new tab ?

Hi there,

I've just downloaded the dev version of Firefox, and for some reason some of the text defaults to italics; I can't see where to change this. On all other browsers, this text is not italic.

Does anyone have an explanation / solution?

The non-italic text in the picture attached is the 'good text' which accurately reflects itself accross browsers and devices. The italic text is the 'bad text' that I want to change for consistency.

Thanks!

Sometimes when loading a page, and the page is slow to respond, I will see a strange situation: The page is totally blank (the F12 tool does not display page content). The refresh button is gray (disabled), or sometimes although the refresh button enabled, the url textbox is "about:blank", which means I cannot actually reload the page I want to read. I have to re-navigate to the page through the link in the previous link. I'm not sure whether I got across. I hope the issue can be fixed.

with multiple monitors come multiple windows. and sometimes you need to close FF entirely. by habit and by design, every other application has the 'X' button in the top right close the APPLICATION. in FF, this only closes the current WINDOW (NOT TAB!!), which, if you have 2 or 3 (one for each monitor), leads to a lot of cursing as your multi-tab, multi-window layout is now borked. for single window users, this is not something that would ever concern them, but us multi-monitor, multi-window users, it would be nice to be able to have that big 'X' kill the application entirely instead of killing just the window. so is there a way to remap this?

TL;DR: Can the top right 'X' button be remapped to Exit instead of Close Window?

Is there a way to use a list of sites you want to block with the manage exceptions option in settings. Several times now I have gone to the option and found it empty of entries, having to replace the sites I need to add one at a time blocking and reopening the option for each entry. Two things would be of great help: 1. find out how the manage exceptions option is being cleaned out and stop that action from happing 2. I have prepaired a text file listing the sites that I feel I don't want cookies from, a way to enter that list as a group (batch) into the manage exception blocking setting at least would make the work faster.

I enter the list to my host file also block them with my firewall witch dose some good on the house side of the blocking but little on the browser side.

anyhow any of this you can help with would be great. Don Smith smitm13@msn.com

I tried to hit the Feedback under Firefox Help because this latest update has completely broken the ability to report comments or inappropriate posts on Facebook, to the group admins, but all I keep seeing is something called Mozila.Crowdcity.com! If you're taking our ability to submit simple feedback away, I won't be using Firefox anymore. This has just happened as well since this latest update. I didn't have any trouble submitting feedback prior to this.

I would like to do an update of Firefox Browser. I've been unable to log in to websites, such as my bank, for which I have been able to access. Strange but I could log in, then for about a week I couldn't log in to bank site via my Icon shortcut. Then it began working again under the original icon. I was forced to use google during this time, which has worked. I prefer Firefox, because of more privacy. Again today, I was unable to access aaa.com, I was able to sign on via my iphone 8. Then I tried Google sign on, again it worked. This problem is intermittent. I thought I'd make sure Firefox Browser was updated. I have windows 7 on this computer. The browser update seemed to start then just hang.
