First, I just had a major system crash, had to re-install Linux Mint and through my own stupidity, relied on the wrong backups for my firefox configuration. So I lost my Firefox 52 install with all of my extensions (that still worked). Now, I'm running v. 57 Quantum, and a few things aren't working correctly.

First, the MAJOR problem: when I open a link from a bookmark, it's clobbering an existing tab that I was using (that's why it was open, obviously). That is completely unsat and can not be allowed to continue. How do I correct this? I can't find the option under settings-->tabs to fix this problem.

Second issue (major annoyance): I can no longer create a bookmark directly in a bookmark folder on the bookmark toolbar. I used to be able to open that bookmark folder, and the first option was to bookmark the currently open tab. That option has vanished, and i use that all the time. How do I restore that?

Actually, one more issue: I have two tabs that are pinned and are supposed to be protected (i.e., nothing can clobber them, and I can't close them without deliberately turning the protection off (context menu right-clicking on tab). I need that back, because for some reason, firefox thinks it's ok to open a bookmark in those tabs, too, when it most definitely is NOT ok.

Thanks, Jim Graham

My home computer Firefox screen and with ALL my information suddenly showed up on my work computer when I opened Firefox this evening. This is very bad as other people use this computer as well. I didn't sign-in to anything or even open my personal email account. i just opened Firefox to use the internet as I always do and what came up is what I see on my home computer. How did this happen? And far more important, how do I make this go away immediately. Like, this minute. this must be the fault of Firefox Sync, which has turned out to be a complete nightmare. I disconnected my work computer from sync but apparently it's back again. In fact, i never added my work computer to my sync account to begin with. I wouldn't be that stupid. But the work computer showed up anyway. I got rid of it, but it came back tonight. Basically, it's hijacked Firefox/Google on my work computer, It's bringing up my personal computer Firefox/Google page - AND all my personal information, including history, passwords, bookmarks in the process - instead of the Firefox/Google page that normally is displayed when Firefox is opened on my work computer. Even with deleting my sync account my personal page is what comes up when opening Firefox. This could be disastrous. The IT department would just love to see this coming up on one of their network computers. Sync is a terrible idea.

How can this be corrected and all my personal information deleted from my work computer?

Thanks for your assistance.

Hello everyone,

suddenly (no update was done) all my passwords are gone from FF. I am asking myself now: What happened? One of the solutions in this Forum helped: Using Shadow copy tool. So this way I could rescue my old profile folder. However, I ask myself now this:

- I was so frustrated of this that I completely deleted my account. So I think all data is safely gone, right? My plan is now to delete the current temporary profile folder, restore the old one, then recreate sync account. Will this work or can I get trouble because the folder name is already used up on FF servers? From my point of view this should not be the case if my account was really(!) deleted and this plan should work.

- Anyway: Although I found a solution I am asking my self why this happened. I had NEVER such an issue with Chrome so I really starting to doubt the security/integrity of FF. If a bookmark gets gone or something like this it is not a big thing to me. But ALL PASSWORDS is a heavy issue. So is there an explanation to this?

- In general I am asking my self if I could continue using FF. Because I just googled this topic intensively now for 2 hours reading a lot stuff and it turns out that password storage (even with master pw) is extremely insecure because of not enough iterations and Hash algorithm used by FF.

So is FF even a secure Browser? To me it doesn't look like that anymore. The main reason switching back from Chrome to FF was data privacy and security. Because I also didn't trust google so much. However, it is much more important to protect me from 3rd party instead of Google/Mozilla. But I am not sure if FF can protect my data very well (suddenly deleting ALL passwords, no secure PW storage).

Thanks for your info! Best, Chris

Since I reinstalled my Windows 10 laptop, Firefox 58 or higher won't launch. Firefox 57 or lower starts fine. But when I install FF 58+ and start the program, nothing happens. The cursor changes briefly and after a couple of seconds there's no more activity. The firefox.exe process shows no more activity.

What I tried: - Installed FF 58 or higher and started the program. No luck. - Started in safe mode, or profile manager. No luck, nothing happens. - I deleted all firefox files/registry keys (also from %appdata% and %localappdata%, as well as all reg keys below HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mozilla and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mozilla. No luck. - With ccleaner I cleaned up all temp folders. No luck. - I temporary disabled a/v software (Windows defender and Palo Alto Traps). No luck. - I was running Windows 10 1607. I upgraded to 1709, but still no luck. - I analysed the process firefox.exe with process monitor from sysinternals. I don't see anything weird and after a couple of seconds, the process finishes with exiting a thread, and that's it. No more activity from this process, until I kill it manually. The process monitor log doesn't show any activities in accessing the user profile settings. - When I install FF 57 everything works fine. Then when I choose to upgrade, the upgrade finishes but FF won't start anymore. - I can't find any log files explaining what's going on. - Before I reinstalled my laptop, I used the same image (sccm) 1 year ago, and firefox was working fine then. - Finally I also looked at other toolings which could interfere, such as VLC media player. I removed those tools as well. No luck.

I'm at a loss here. Can somebody point me to the right direction? Perhaps version 58+ introduced something completely new which somehow causes issues with my installation? Any log files I'm missing, which might explain what's going on?

Thanks.

Condensed Excerpt from recent request to update which includes the following: "...Mozilla working to improve Firefox. ...you may be selected to rate your experience. ...your feedback gives us a real-time understanding of your needs so we can act on them quickly. ...we also use Heartbeat to send surveys on Mozilla products, the Internet or current events relevant to users.

I DO NOT WANT ALL THE SURVEYS, MONITORING, AND THE REST.

I am a Senior and I don't graze, browse, stream,play games or use social media, or watch tv on laptop. It is for work, not play.                   I do not want my pc clogged up and the speed dragging with all the new junk offered.  
I would like to have a security upgrade without all the other irrelevant additions that are totally unwanted and would be unused. .

SECOND ISSUE: This offer below, I found accidentally while trying to find where to contact you:... "Switch to Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR) for personal use How to switch to Firefox ESR as a workaround for issues with the newest version of Firefox." THIS, to help you back out of any problems you encounter when you do upgrade, does not encourage me to download this current update. I still remember the frustration the last time I downloaded a major update and had problems. I left IE because of the regular freezing and crashes slow downs, etc. To my surprise, I found that most people just tolerated these things as part of doing business!?! I was so happy when someone suggested Firefox. I have had NO freezes, crashes or other problems since. Please dont overload us with things that could contribute to the same thing happening on Mozilla. In this instance, you do NOT want to be like MS product that continues to turn out versions too soon w/all it's bugs that the poor user has to fix. I will go to Linux or Mac if that happens.... Thanks for listening.

A few days ago I "decommissioned" my 5-year-old CPU, which had Windows XP for an OS. Before unhooking it I copied the Favorites folder from the Firefox program files onto a flash drive. My new machine's OS is Linux, but I will be continuing to use Firefox. I have not found any Help info on how to import bookmarks from one version of Firefox to another or off a flash drive, only from other browsers to Firefox. The last time I did this I simply put the old Favorites folder into the program files in place of its empty Favorites folder, but on the Linux machine I have been unable to locate program files of any kind so that shortcut isn't available. How do I import a Firefox Favorites file from a flash drive to the Firefox on my new CPU?

Why do more and more apps continue to disappear after each upgrade? There are so many apps that I love that are no longer available or not compatible? And often no replacements, this is what made Firefox so awesome was the apps. Now I have virtually nothing of the apps that I use and there are some where I have all kinds of files with information from them I cannot get to and I REALLY wan! For example 'scrapbook'. for example; I will have to go into thousands and thousands of files one at a time to get them. I hate the upgrades that you are doing more and more than I like them. I find myself either downgrading in frustration or using Chrome. You either have to stop upgrading so fast, make it so more apps are still compatible, or have a downgraded version before Quantum available. (easiest- offer a pre Quantum version.) If Firefox is for the people, than make it what the people want.

I love my iMac and it works perfectly well for everything I need. I have El Capitan installed as OS, but each version update to Firefox makes my browsing experience slower, slower, slower. And I love Firefox - have been using it for years. I was especially disappointed with the 57 update because it was touted as blazingly fast. Maybe that message was silently intended for new machines. It has made loading a simple web page "critically" slow. I expect a fizzle soon.

So here is the quandary: Is there not a way to make security updates without compromising speed for older machines? Those who say, "get over it, get a new machine" may not be as sensitive to the harshness of assumed obsolescence.
