I bought a new computer. I read about how to transfer over your profile. On my old computer I located the folder, and went up one level as it said. I had 2 files there, not 1 .I saved these files. I installed firefox on my new computer and followed the same steps to locate the folder. It also had 2 files, with different names. I STUPIDLY deleted these two files and put in the two I had copied from my old compter. Turned offirefox and turned it back on. It would notopen because it said it couldnot locate my profile folder. I uninstalled Firefox, and reinstalled it. I still get the same error.

Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible. I thought uninstalling and reinstalling it would solve the first part of the program but as of now, I have no Firefox.

Any suggestions from anyone.

I downloaded the new improved Firefox and all my pictures posted this year are gone. I asked Mozilla for help and of course like I thought an effing robot must have answered me. This is because Mozilla washed their hands of the problem and the robot (obviously uneducated) gave me a song and dance about how this is MY fault and Mozilla is completely blameless. Mozilla is using the old operator error routine we hear so often when a company can’t be bothered to help a customer. Now I am faced with $50 an hour to have a TRUSTED computer repair person to sort this out. Don’t ever ask Mozilla for help, their uneducated robot will just say it’s your problem. Perhaps I should have just stayed with Google Chrome, at least they tried to give an intelligent answer and not give up on their customer and blame the customer for the problem. I think this is on page 35 of the Mozilla customer service manual. When you don’t know the answer just blame the user and move on to a simpler question. An uneducated answer is better than no answer at all. Let the user pay someone to fix the problem caused by Mozilla. Good luck if you ask them anything, best not to waste your time and go to someone private or a grade 9 student that knows more about Mozilla and computers than Mozilla itself does.

I had to reinstall my Firefox web browser because of the XPCom error I kept receiving. For one of my jobs that I work remotely, I had my information saved on my old Firefox web browser. Now that I had to reinstall the web browser, my information is lost and I do not know how to retrieve. My question is, once a password is saved, you guys on the backend have the ability to retrieve it? Please let me know as this would be greatly helpful for my job.

Every time I download something whether its a program or file, Firefox would completely freeze for a few seconds and then go back to normal and resume the download. I find it very irritating, especially when I am trying to do something else on a different tab whether its working on school work or just watching a video. Is there a fix for this or will this be fixed in an upcoming update?

incorrect checksums of downloaded Firefox

Every time I download a new release of Firefox (win64 german), I check the downloaded file at virustotal and check the hashes published under http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/<Version>, e.g. http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.0.1/SHA256SUMS Up until release 77.0 the hashes matched but for 77.0.1 and also the current release 78.0.1 the hashes do not match, neither SHA256 nor SHA512. For "win64/de/Firefox Setup 78.0.1.exe" the SHA256 hash should be 56cff68e3f0cb76a6404d675f7e1bacc40ebaba7bbb5cadcb4950378656ab0a6 but the calculated hash is 8e69755f257aba44b6bbe5079e17f3bff8b62ddc27de9e1c479686e9ad871dfb When checking at virustotal, the file is recognized as scanned before and the displayed hash is the one I calculated, so at least my downloaded file is equal to the file other persons downloaded. Could it be that since v77.0.1 the published hashes are incorrect?

Tried to download and install the Firefox browser, 64 bit. While processing, said "cannot continue, cannot find VCRUNTIME140_1.dll. I know that I did remove the Visual C re-distributable file or from the windows system but have been trying to re-install. Downloaded and executed visual c, to no effect, did not re-install the driver or whatever Firefox is looking for during the install. At a total loss on how to re-instate the VCRUNTIME140_1.DLL so that I can use Firefox, HELP!!! P.S. the help provided on-line tells one how to re-install the driver but so "poluted" with other programs wanting you to download their programs that impossible to find the correct tools to use. Anyway, your help will be appreciated. I do like Firefox and have been enticed to use Microsoft Ecge but do not want to if I can help!

Hi,

I've encountered my fair share of bugs. I'm also disabled, so I need a lot of safety and accessibility fixes to use any browser.

Debugging advice often involves ""safe" mode," which disables some safety and accessibility tools, or "refresh Firefox," or otherwise using new profiles, which require me to set up the safety and accessibility tools before I can do anything. (For example, by default Firefox uses blinking cursors, autoscroll, and smooth scrolling, all of which trigger my migraines.)

In the past I've sometimes copied specific items, or cleared out a new profile folder and copied everything from an already-set-up profile folder.

Are there better or worse ways to copy bookmarks, saved passwords, about:config settings, user css, add-ons, and add-on settings?

(The previous time I asked this, I somehow got diverted to the wrong forum.)
