After restoring a profile folder from backup, extension settings are lost

I just restored my $HOME/.mozilla folder from a backup (I closed Firefox, moved the old folder away, and the copied the backup folder to the correct location) and I noticed that while my bookmarks, logins, and extensions where correctly restored, all (?) settings from the extensions are lost. I had to reconfigure all custom uBlock origin filter lists, the Cookie Autodelete expression lists, the pwgen settings, and some others.

So to my question: since backing up the profile folder is obviously not enough to restore everything, is there some other folder or file I need to back up to retain the extensions settings on restore? Which one?

Thanks!

Why does the following happen? Firefox 67.0.4

1) In the options menu I have "Block all third party cookies" as the main option.

2) In "Manage permissions" I have blocked both http://google.com as well as https://google.com.

3) I remove all the cookies with the word "google" in them.

4) I do a single google search.

5) Again, I have 6 cookies set by google. :-(

The same thing seems to be happening with twitter and youtube (normally I don't visit either, but I occasionally unsuspectingly click a link taking me there).

I'm using Win 10 on Lenovo laptop... Think that my Firefox is causing the loss of emojis and icons on Facebook, causing menu options to become invisible and difficult to remember and use... Works fine in MS Edge which I haven't used until yesterday, and now have to have Firefox and Edge browsers open at same time to do different things... not really convenient nor ideal... would prefer to just use Firefox for all applications...

how do I get Facebook working fully again on Firefox browser?

I'm no techie so please be patient with me at this end...

thanks in advance, Dawn

Im using Firefox on my kubuntu machine and the cursor in the overleaf.com editor has a weird offset. On my laptop (same setup: Kubuntu) I don't have this problem.

See the attached picture. The cursor is far to the right but when I type, letters are added where the blue arrow is pointing.

I have been using Jig zone website for years with Firefox. Recently I am unable to change the cut of the pieces. Everything else including "shuffle pieces" and "autosolve"on the website work fine. I am able to change the cut of the pieces using other browsers. I have been through help on their website without a solution to this issue. I think it is a Firefox issue since every other browser works fine.

Why, with Firefox 67.0 (64-bit), does Thunderbird 60.7.0 (32-bit) ignore the running Firefox instance and starts, instead, the default profile to handle links?

Hi, all.

On Windows 10 Pro (64-bit), I run Firefox (64-bit) and Thunderbird (32-bit), each with two profiles.

Until this afternoon, when Firefox updated to 67.0, clicking on a link in Thunderbird would open a new tab in the currently running instance of Firefox. If Firefox was not running, it would open "Profile 1."

Now, Thunderbird will only open links in my "Profile 1" Firefox. If I have "Profile 2" running, Thunderbird ignores it and starts a new instance of Firefox using "Profile 1." With both instances running, Thunderbird opens a new tab in the "Profile 1" instance.

I updated to Thunderbird 60.7.0 (32-bit), but it did not change the behaviour. So, this seems to be a Firefox change. Is there a way to go back to having the running Firefox instance handle the external launch of links?

This is the behaviour that I want: clicking on a link, anywhere, will open it in a new tab in the currently running Firefox profile, only opening the default profile if Firefox is not yet running.

Thanks in advance!

At the moment there is container feature, but it doesn't really work like how I prefer it to be.

1. A container is limited to a tab, not a Firefox window 2. Something similar to Chrome profile would be great. 3. My current flow is that each window is per profile, meaning that one window is for work, one for personal, etc.

Will Firefox consider this as a future improvement, or Firefox doesn't prefer this kinda of workflow?

Plain and simple it's impossible to get Firefox Quantum to increase font size or magnification size and *stay that way* either between restarts of Firefox or when another tab is openend. Addons and plugins don't work, instructions for how to hack it are all over the place. Me? I'm moving all my bookmarks over to Chrome which in spite of all the controversy makes it a breeze to increase font and/or magnification size and keep it that way.

Using Ubuntu 18.04, 4.15.0-33-generic GNU/Linux, and Mozilla Firefox 67.0. Other browsers work fine, so it is not an internet connectivity issue. Firefox uses no proxy, and has IPv6 disabled. It cannot open a local server like 192.168.1.4, so it is not a DNS resolution issue. If I run it from CLI, I get the following:

Sandbox: seccomp sandbox violation: pid 25975, tid 25983, syscall 53, args 1 1 0 139885284952128 0 139884708835328.

Happens after a recent update, so may go back to earlier version.

I never had a firefox account till now. So, I had to reset the pc where i had all my logins. I once had to export my passwords (exporting key4 and logins.json files) and it worked, so i didn't think to much about it. So i reset the pc without cheking if the passwords actually worked (yuh, my bad). The problem is that apparently mozilla doesn't recognize the files, or something, cause when i open "Logins and passwords" it's empty. I don't know what to do, please help me.

I can't delete autocomplete entries in any way. Clearing the complete form and search history does nothing, and using down-arrow to select entries in form blanks, and hitting DELETE, SHIFT+DELETE, CTRL+DELETE all do nothing, and while CTRL+SHIFT+DELETE will pop up the "Clear History" pane, it still does nothing when I select it to delete both form/search entries and cache.

I have Firefox set to not remember form or search history, and this has gone far beyond annoying. It's not an addon interfering, either, because I have tried it in Firefox Safe Mode (all addons disabled) as well, with no change.

I am using Video Download Helper with companion app, when downloading videos, the DownloadHelper will uses only one process of Firefox with very high CPU and memory usage. . Ans cause it does not take advantage of all the CPU cores it is very slow, and uses high memory for that process and will make all tabs in Firefox slow.

It seems that this process is the core process for Firefox, although it is a sub-process. It is the process that almost doesn't uses GPU memory.

When finished, if I killed this Firefox process to clean memory, cause it will just accumulate the memory in that specific process, all the tabs in the Firefox will crash and can't be refreshed, until I close Firefox and open it again.

Usually when I kill a Firefox process that is not responding, it will crash a few tabs and they can be refreshed after that.

Is there anyway that can make the companion app uses all processes for Firefox, so it will distribute the CPU usage to all cores, and if used a high memory it will be distribute the memory to all process and will be easier to clean.

Firefox Developer Edition (67.0b5) is my default browser I'm running windows 10.

if Firefox is running and i click on a link in my email, Firefox will open a new tab and show the page. if Firefox is NOT running and I click on a link, Firefox will open a blank tab; I'll have to click the link again - without closing Firefox - for the page to show.

this behavior is fairly new - about 4 updates back.

thank you;

Hi, When I try to login to my GitHub account from firefox I am getting redirected to 'https://github.com/sessions/verified-device' which says that an authentication code has been sent to my email address. But I haven't received any emails. When this problem persisted for a second day, I decided to send a support request to git-hub and got a weird error (see screenshot attached). So I switched to chrome and tried to login. It worked like a charm. The login was successful right away.
