Hi everybody this will be a long question, and I would be really grateful for any kind of help anyone could give me, this is my case:

I use `firefox-sync` to manage all my logins information and firefox-sync's password is the unique password I save manually.

Currently I has problems with my O.S and I decided reinstall it. But also I have 2FA enable for mostly of my accounts, and firefox-sync is not the exception, and firefox-sync's 2FA is based on my gmail, so when I tried get logged on firefox-sync, firefox asks me for my verification code, but my verification code is in my gmail, and my gmail's password is in firefox-sync.

So I lost access to all my accounts, I lose my gmail, github, gitlab, stackoverflow, discord, etc etc... :'(

From the gmail side, I tried all that gmail let me try but unsuccessfully.

So, the only possibility that I see, is recover the information of the formatted partition and rebuild the previous state of Firefox. I mean:

Reading about firefox loggins, and taking a look to firefox's workdir (`$HOME/.mozilla`), I see firefox saves login's info in a json file located in `$HOME/.mozilla/$profile$/logins.json`.

So the basic idea is with a data recovery tool, try recover `.mozilla`s directory and replace it over the current environment so when I start firefox can get access to my login's info. But I'm not sure how much it is possible to recover the whole directory, and if is not posible, my question is:

What files next to `logins.json` should be my recovery targets to replace inside the `.mozilla` folder in order to reconstruct my accounts login information?

It appears that the security settings and others were changed without any notification during a recent update. A login with card number and password were subsequently saved without my knowledge thus exposing my online banking accounts to possible unauthorized use. This should not happen and should be addressed.

• Mozilla makes most of their money by shipping Firefox with Google as default search engine. • Mozilla partners with Facebook to create "privacy preserving advertising technology". • Mozilla now includes a unique identifier to all Firefox downloads/installations. • Mozilla Firefox by default has telemetry enabled without informing the user. • Mozilla Firefox now includes more and more bloat such as Pocket, etc.

None of the above is good in any way... this is serious BS makes me worry about Mozilla and my Privacy while using Firefox, i already switched to Librewolf anyways but i still use Firefox for other purposes. Anyways... did i forget something? Am i missing any headlines above or is that it?

What does everyone think about this? I mean seriously, what do you think?? You folks on this forum obviously are using Firefox, so..?

I'm on Ubuntu 22.04 which is using the snap package of Firefox.

It seems that I cannot open local files in the /tmp directory. When I place a test.html file there and run `firefox /tmp/test.html`, it returns a file not found error. Why?

I don't have the problem with files in my home directory.

Greetings...

Yesterday, my laptop was functioning without difficulty. Today, when I logged into Windows 10, instead of my usual profile/desktop appearing, a default profile/desktop appeared.

I performed a system restore using the most recent restore point (two days ago). The system restore completed successfully and upon restart and login, my usual profile/desktop appeared.

However, my installation of Firefox no longer completely exists. In the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox directory, many of the files that customarily exist no longer appear, including firefox.exe.

Most certainly, I do not want to lose any of my bookmarks, open tabs, or custom settings that I have established in my Firefox over many years of use. What would be the best way for me to restore Firefox on my laptop, while preserving all of my bookmarks, open tabs, custom settings, etc?

Would a simple reinstall of Firefox accomplish this task, without my losing any of my bookmarks, open tabs, custom settings, etc? Or, is there something else that I should do?

I would sincerely appreciate your feedback regarding this problem. Thank you!

I want to know what caused the Firefox icon to disappear from my dock and be replaced by the generic icon. Firefox seems to continue to work well. I don't want to re-install it when it seems to work. However, I want to know what caused this to happen and if there is an easy way to restore it to the unique icon. I've read about the various remedies but don't want to take the time for a re-install when everything seems to be working.

Please just tell me the cause and if there is an easy solution.
