Hi I upgrated my ssd disk of my laptop. The old one ssd is not ble to reboot the windows 10 SO, so I'm not able to export credencials from in order to import into this new one. How can I import that credencials information to this new one? I have already created some credentials to some sites as needed to download software to work. Thanks in advance for your help Jorge Pimentel

How do you stop Firefox from installing automatically? I want to install it on my d drive, but the option never comes up. I uninstalled Firefox, removed the %appdata% and restarted the PC as well., but the dialog box never comes up.

Imported Bookmarks Do Not Appear In Highlights (forum search shows problem persisting for years)

Highlights only shows bookmarks added from Firefox, not those imported from an html file. There is no obvious way to fix this inconvenient behavior and no clear solution here or in other forums.

Moving the bookmarks to different locations in bookmark library has no effect. Obviously, there must be some setting or code that causes this and it should not be the default.

As a nontechnical user I am limited in my ability to find and fix the problem. But from a logical standpoint those highlights are populated from somewhere. Being able to change that location or move the imported bookmarks there should not be an easter-egg hunt.

This seems to be an ongoing and unaddressed issue. It probably persists because, while annoying, after failed attempts to resolve or get the community to address the issue, it becomes easier to just re-add the bookmarks.

As someone giving the browser a shot after deciding Opera was basically adware. This annoyance is a fairly disheartening switching cost.

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm trying to migrate my Firefox from a very old 42.0 version (where I was stuck due to valuable plugins discontinuity) to some actual version (Mac OS). Attempt to just install the latest version doesn't work because it cannot properly convert stored passwords and the places database.

From the support article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/lockwise-losing-login-information-firefox-update, I know that for passwords I should at least visit the intermediate version 68, which should be able to convert older passwords database.

What other upgrade points should I visit to successfully overcome the gap?

This is the first time I've needed to do this in years but, at one time, installing a root (or, for that matter, third-level) CA certificate in Firefox was straightforward. Unless I'm missing something --and I've been poking around these files for over an hour-- it is now, at best, quite obscure. Is there a way for me to install a CA certificate for a CA you have chosen to not recognize and include with the system? If so, a clear explanation of how to do it would be appreciated. And, yes, I understand the implications of doing this.

Thanks.

Firefox has been doing this to me for the past couple months, but Ill get an annoying notification saying I havent updated firefox, even though firefox is updated. This used to happen on the "nightly" version of firefox everyday, which is expected, but on a normal release, this is not supposed to happen.

How can I fix? This seems to be a bug - one location says its "up to date" the other is a notification telling me to "update".

See attached screenshot with update icon in the menu, while the "About" menu says its up-to-date.

If I go into about:config, app.update.url.manual is set to: https://www.mozilla.org/%LOCALE%/firefox/

I am trying to downgrade to ver.68.10.0 but after installing ff is updating automatically. I've tried the following advice, but it is still updating. Any ideas?

"Important: By default, Firefox is set for automatic updates. To prevent Firefox from automatically updating itself after you install an older version, you'll need to change your Firefox update settings: Click the menu button Fx57Menu and select Options. In the General panel, go to the Firefox Updates section."
