Not sure if this is the correct place to post my question, given the separation of Thunderbird from Mozilla. If this is not the right place, I'd appreciate a link to the correct one.

I'm new to Mac OS, have been a long time Windows-7 user, and long ago was a UNIX user at my then employer. But it's past time to say goodby to Redmond.

I want to transfer my Firefox Thunderbird email history as well as my address book etc. from the Windows 7 installation of Firefox Thunderbird, (which says it's "68.8.0 (32-bit)", it was updated today, May 10) over to the new (to me) MacBook-Pro Firefox Thunderbird (version latest as of May 9, so far haven't figured out how to cause the Mac Thunderbird to show it's version info)

While the instructions for copying the profile info on the Windows machine and transferring to another Windows machine are clear, and the instructions for copying an existing Mac profile and transferring to a new Mac are clear, I am unable to find any information on how to move the Windows files to the Mac installation.

I tried copying everything in the Windows "Thunderbird" directory to a flash drive, then tried replacing the Thunderbird files on the Mac with the copied files but that didn't work.

What is the procedure I should be following? For the moment I'll be keeping the Win-7 machine "alive" but would really like to abandon it soon.

Thanks for any suggestions.

(edited the question to change Firefox to Thunderbird - c)

I tried refreshing Firefox and double checked my color selections but nothing has worked.

Autoplay was working fine yesterday, but today, for some reason, it refuses to work - even though I have set the option to allow for autoplay. the only change that I think MIGHT have something to do with it would be the fact that I uninstalled Google Chrome from my operating system.

Returning faulty ebay laptop with my Firefox data on it - I bought a new laptop on ebay and had already downloaded Firefox when I discovered the machine was faulty. The seller has agreed to take it back and refund, but I am worried that the laptop now has all my passwords, bookmarks etc. Is there a way I can un-sync the faulty machine but keep all the Firefox data I need on my old machine? I am not at all tech-savvy, so need help in very basic terms, please! Thank you, namaste.

I just updated my Firefox on my windows 7 laptop (76.0.1) and could no longer stream live video on Youtube. Yesterday I went thru various troubleshooting sites and finally got Youtube streams to work again.

This morning I see that when I watch an MP4, Firefox downloads the video. After download, it ask me What should Firefox do with this file? Default Windows Media Player.

What did I break? How do I have Firefox start video immediately in Firefox?

Thanks!!!

Firefox Browser (76.0? &) 76.0.1 64-bit (new behaviour described below presented prior to browser restart to get to 76.0.1) asking for system password just to see stored passwords ... is this a legitimate change to Firefox's Security implementation(s)? Or is there some malware associated with Firefox and / or on my Win 7 Pro SP1 64-bit OS system waiting to pounce on my (Administrator-level) system password? FYI - I do not, and, never have, used a Master Password within Firefox.

Under security FF will not show me pw's to other sites that were previously saved. I get a box with my photo and name and it asks for the pw. I yesterday changed it successfully but when using the new pw, it says it's incorrect. I need to know pw's when I need it and it no longer allows me access and doesn't recognize me. Can not continue to be locked out of my own account/browser/computer. Never happened like this before as it always seemed to know it was me. This latest version is not working the same. How can I fix this?

The website https://www.finanznachrichten.de collects financial news from publishers all over the world. Some news are just a link to the publisher's website - this works still fine. Some news can be read directly on the webpage fully. But some articles are NOT displayed fully - only the beginning of the text is displayed followed by a link "Den vollständigenArtikel lesen...." (in english: "Read the full article..." ) This link leads to the full article on the publisher's website. My problem is: This link is NOT DISPLAYED anymore in firefox in all news of this kind on this website. But is was normally displayed in older versions of firefox. By the way: the webmaster of finanznachrichten.de wrote that THEY didn't apply any changes!!!

I just update firefox each time a new release comes up and I always keep all settings as they were before. In other browsers (IE for example) it is ALSO still displayed!!! So my idea is that a setting in firefox prevents those links from being displayed(?) Is that possible and if yes: Which settings do affect the displaying of web-links? (ad block is not the reason by the way - I verfified that) Here an example news: https://www.finanznachrichten.de/nachrichten-2020-04/49525168-nestle-aktie-ein-klarer-gewinner-503.htm Below the text other browsers display the mentioned full-article-link but firefox doesn't anymore. Any idea in the community?

How can I roll back to the previous version of Firefox?

It just updated without my knowledge to version 76.0 and it broke Google Maps. I cannot "grab" the maps and moved them in any direction, an extremely very important feature. It's not Google, because I tried the identical maps using Opera, Chrome and Brave and it's working fine on all three of those browsers. Thanks for your help.

I used to use chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul to display All Bookmarks in a tab (instead of in the sidebar or a Library pop-up window).

Similarly, I also used to use chrome://browser/content/history/history-panel.xul to display my full History in a tab.

Obviously neither of these old paths work any more (since Firefox 57).

What are the new equivalents of these two paths, so that I can achieve the same effect in the current Firefox?

Build 75 has "improved" the address bar by adding search function and also gave a "refreshed look & feel" that enlarges the box when you are typing in it.

I have always had a separate search bar beside the address bar and prefer these functions to remain separate.

I also do not want the bar getting larger when in use--this is visually distracting and encroaches on the favorites bar.

I am hoping there is something in about:config that I can tweak. It would be nice if a user had a search bar on as a preference, that the address bar would automatically be for addresses only.

Is there a way to return the address bar back to just being an address bar? Is there a way to stop it from enlarging?

Thank you.
