How to migrate bookmarks from older Firefox (52) to newest AND KEEP THE BOOKMARK BAR STRUCTURE AND FOLDERS.

I followed the instructions to save bookmarks as an HTML file (old computer, win XP)and then import them into the newest firefox on my new computer (win10). It seemed as if nothing happened. I tried it several times, and then found it was actually putting all the bookmarks in some obscure location - multiple times! - but not saving the organization. Nothing showed up on the bookmarks bar: no folders, no entries,, nada. Eventually I found that the folders existed, somewhere very obscure, but they were all empty. What a crock this is. No better than any other carp software - almost everything I have migrated has been a nightmare. C'mon, Mozilla - You are supposed to be about "people not profit", yes?

Using Win XP, SP3 & Firefox 52.8, Can't access many websites. Couldn't login here unless I used Private Browsing

There are many websites that I can't get to & give me error messages, even if I use Safe Mode. For some reason, even when I tried to login to Mozilla support, I got … (читать ещё)

There are many websites that I can't get to & give me error messages, even if I use Safe Mode. For some reason, even when I tried to login to Mozilla support, I got messages that "the username is inactive", "you answered the question wrong (it asked how many letters in Mozilla & I said 7)". I can't get to any Microsoft KB articles & can't login to Lastpass.

I thought it might be one of the useragent values, so I posted that here. I can't use the latest Firefox because it doesn't allow toolbars & I use Roboform toolbar.

So my questions are: 1) Is it the useragent values that I posted below that need to be changed & if so, how? 2) Is there anything else that could cause this? 3. If not, & I uninstall Firefox completely, then:

     A.  How can I save my bookmarks & add-ins?
     B.  Can you show me the link to re download Firefox 52.8?

I'd appreciate any advice. Thank you in advance!!

Under Wndows XP, Firefox will no longer start, and won't reinstall or install

I had been running the latest version (52.8) of Firefox supported under Windows XP, but now I can no longer run Firefox, and, worse, cannot reinstall it.


On June 7, Firefox lost all the tabs from the previous day. This happens from time to time, and it's simplest first to try restoring Windows to the previous checkpoint: this is sometimes successful in that Firefox then does display tabs. I restored Windows to the then most recent checkpoint, June 6, only to find the attempted cure worse than the disease: Firefox would not even start. There were no messages of any type.

Attempts either to create a new Firefox profile (-p) or to start Firefox in safe mode (Shift) were no different. Windows Task Manager showed no evidence, however transient, of either any Application or Process for Firefox. Again, there were no messages of any type.

Restoring Windows to still earlier dates produced the same situation: Firefox would not run, exactly as after the initial restoration.

Deleting the (only) Firefox profile made no difference.


All subsequent attempts to reinstall Firefox--whether or not Firefox had been uninstalled--have been equally unsuccessful, and equally mute.

Program Firefox Installer.exe (306 KB in size, downloaded from https://stubdowloader.cdn.mozilla.net, for example) begins a process which occupies either 2,484KB or 2,488KB of storage, but which does nothing. I tried several Firefox installers (all downloaded via various links from Mozilla): all are bit-for-bit identical, albeit with one occasional exception, i.e., sometimes a string is "duckduckgo.", and sometimes it's "getfirefox-". None of these installers produces any message, and each creates a process which occupies c. 2.5MB and then does nothing.

Knowing that it would not run successfully under Windows XP, I nonetheless tried later Firefox installers (e.g., Firefox Setup 60.0.2.exe downloaded from https://download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net). Rather than my receiving the expected message saying that 60.0.2 isn't supported on Windows XP, this installer, too (once it's used some amount of both CPU and storage), is simply suspended occupying 2,544KB and staying silent.


The following may or may not be relevant.

1. Running any of these installers (and also firefox.exe itself) from a CMD window confirms instant termination. Even from the CMD window, it remains the case that the installers create a process occupying c. 2.5MB. (I didn't try Firefox Setup 60.0.2.exe from the CMD window.)

2. Things are essentially the same in Windows Safe Mode, with the following differences. (a) The 306 KB installers occupy slightly less storage: c. 2.2 MB instead of c. 2.5 MB. (2) Clicking on the Firefox shortcut and selecting "Run As" with the same account produces the message "A device attached to the system is not functioning"; a 'Web search for his message turns up nothing relevant.


The current situation is that Windows was restored to the most recent checkpoint, June 6, as in the second paragraph (although obviously Windows has taken later checkpoints, so that the June 6 checkpoint has been overwritten), and Firefox is installed. Firefox still won't run, and none of the installers produces any output.

FWIW, I'd wondered whether Firefox might simply be refusing to run any longer on Windows XP, but recent tests show that the Firefox-based TOR browser runs from a memory stick just as normal.

I use Windows XP and I cannot download the latest Firefox updates - current version is 60 and I am on 52.8.0 (32-bit) and am the esr channel - I do not know how I got there and would like to be able to go back to the release channel and update to version 60 - I only became aware of this because I have been experiencing crashes and "plugincontainer.exe" error message I want to go back to the regular version of Firefox, but no matter what link I try to download from, it always says it's the ESR version, even after I uninstalled Firefox and rebooted. Can anyone give me step by step instructions on how I can get the regular version? I would be very grateful

Thank you

I have a Windows 10 machine also, & it can access these sites. However, with either browser (Firefox or IE) it redirects to a general MS support page. It does this on any MS KB article. I've tried disabling the hosts file & flushing the DNS, but I get the same behavior. I know MS doesn't support XP, but all I want to do is read an article.

I'd appreciate any help. Thank you in advance!

I have even formatted a labtop and installed from scratch. No addons no nothing and Firefox still wont play youtube HTML5 videos. In Chrome on the same machine it works fine. And it's not this machine i have formatted! So all in all 3 machines running Firefox 52.5.3 and XP are "down". What is sad is that it worked until about a week ago, so it's an "upgrade" not something i have done.

Have a nice day Henrik

Hi all -

Under Windows XP, I was able to create a desktop shortcut to bring me into the Private Mode page. Here is the XP switch under Properties->Target for the shortcut: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -private-window

However added switch of -private-window doesn't work on Windows 7 or 10.

Any ideas? Thanks :)
