I intend to upgrade my desktop PC from Win 8.1 to Win 10 soon due to Microsoft discontinuing support for 8.1 next January and I want to know how to preserve all my current settings in Firefox (including saved Pocket articles). Also, does anyone know for certain whether or not Firefox will be automatically migrated to Win 10 in the upgrade? (If it does, maybe that will answer my first question?)

A website I use to move money - getting message telling me cookies is blocking 3rd party cookies. and I need to enable 3rd party cookies. I go to settings in firefox and for the information to set settings to enable cookies 3rd party they do not work. They tell me to check and uncheck boxes that I do not even have for setttings. I never had this problem before until Jan. of 2022. I have to use a different browser to get to the website and complete my task. There is something in the Firefox browser or they made changes/updates. Need step by step instructions. NEED TO TALK TO SOMEONE.

Firefox 96.0.2 home screen color

I saw this posted: (A) Right-click context menus, toolbar drop-down panels Starting in Firefox 89, these would flip to a dark background if the text on the inactive/background tabs was white or light. Firefox 96 has extended this adaptation to more parts of the browser. As far as I know, the only built-in way to avoid this is to change your toolbar theme to one with dark text on the inactive/background tabs. (The other way is the not-officially-supported userChrome.css file route.)

OK, I have been using a "not-officially-supported userChrome.css file" for quite sometime. Every 4th or 5th update (sic) screws it up. Apparently the latest (96.0.2) "looks" at my toolbars, makes an (erroneous) assumption and turns the main part of the home screen to black.

Not useful!

Suggestions to override Firefox's (less than helpful) assumption?

Some major probs just developed & now I have a totally different theme & a new version of Firefox 56.0 installed today... See image of installed programs

while I still have Firefox 95.0.2 from 12/20/2021 Firefox 54.0.01 from 8/19/2017 Firefox 61.0.01 from 7/30/2018 Over time newer versions accumulate & I've been told not to try to uninstall any of the older versions as it may crash ALL versions


it happened I think sometime after closing a normal session ... I was trying to clear out everything (junk & temp files etc.) as I normally do when using CCleaner then a message said Previous session not correctly closed a message said Firefox is still running do you want to force it to close" I said yes...then it said "its taking a long time to close... do you want to force it to close? I said yes... this happens occasionally & with EDGE as well...but usually there's no problems afterwards

btw: I'm using [Windows 8.1] & after several attempts at restarting Firefox...with different 'fixes' including using safemode... I did a computer restart ... & I did a regular profile backup last time 12/16/21 so as a last resort it may help...but I'm afraid to try to mess with it

anyway...then I was trying to look up solutions & for those of us who are not tech savvy..there's too much info & too may options & links & they lead to new articles like using about:config & browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash & restoring sessions etc which just gets confusing I copied raw data to clipboard (which is a million pages) & then copied text to clipboard (not as bad...but it may help someone to help me....

hopefully someone can straighten this out for me... I'm worn out trying to figure it out myself thanks

Hi,

I downloaded the new Firefox browser a couple of days ago and now I have lost all my bookmarks.

Does Firefox have a recent backup that I can import?

I clicked on 'Bookmarks', then 'Manage Bookmarks', select restore, but the bookmarks are from months ago.

Where are my current bookmarks?

Also, where is the bookmarks icon which was in the top right-hand corner, how do I access the bookmarks in this new version?


Kind regards,

Maria

I hate surprises like these! So far i trusted FF that after an update my layout would still be intact as was, but no they forced this black sh.. onto me as a background for the home page - and no alternative anywhere to switch this back to white or any other options. Do i want to install a plugin for this simple basic option - hell no, i'd rather get rid of FF as my default browser if you think you can play dictators too now. What i miserable attitude you people have. If you change for life )white) to dead (black) you might as well declare you are on your way out as a browser - or offer the option to change that bg color real quick

according to the add-on page in Settings, the AdBlock Plus add-on is enabled in my browser, but it doesn't appear to be working. so I am trying to access the menu options to control it. to do that, I need to add the icon to my toolbar.

this article: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/955157

explains two methods:

1. go to Settings --> Customize Toolbars, and drag the icon to the toolbar. this doesn't work, because the icon is not there to be dragged (even after I restore defaults).

2. go to the View Menu --> Toolbars --> Add-on Bar and move the icon from one toolbar to another.

quite apart from the fact that it took me two days to figure out how to get the View Menu to appear, that procedure doesn't work either because after View Menu --> Toolbars --> the Add-on Bar is not listed.

can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong.


thank you,

Periodically, randomly is all I can say, a message window opens when I power on with a statement about "UpdateBrowserForApp" having stopped working; and then I'm given options to close the program, etc. See attached screenshot.

Firefox is the only browser I use. Is this message from Firefox or does it mean I should do something related to Firefox?

Thanks for whatever info or help you can give. Lee

file:/Desktop/Removed%20Apps.html On Thursday, November 25, 2021 9:02 AM my PC was refreshed, so says the Firefox icon that popped up on my screen, and I presume by FireFox because they removed about 25 Apps that I typically use.

1-How do I re-install them? 2- and why would they be removed?

thanks for assistance and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Imported bookmarks beign overwritten by old bookmarks

[This happens on both PC (Win 8.1) and Mac (Mojave 10.14.6) with the current version of Firefox (95.0.2).]

I backed up my bokmarks on both PC and Mac as .json files due to switching laptops for my holiday (PC is personal, Mac is work). When I imported the personal .json file on the Mac, the bookmarks did get imported but all jumbled up - the folders were still there but empty and all the bookmarks were just dumped in random order in the Bookmarks Menu root folder. So I tried synchronising profiles instead which didn't work either.

Now I'm back home and of course the synch has messed up the bookmarks on my PC as well. I deleted everything, restored the bookmarks from the personal .json again, and it does restore them properly for about 2 seconds and then all of the neatly sorted bookmarks in their folders get overwritten again by the jumbled mess. The same thing happens when I restore from the automatic restore point instead (from a day before my holiday).

I have disconnected the snych, restarted and updated several times, and tried this on both PC and Mac with both the personal and work .json files, with the same result every time. I have about 1200 bookmarks in total so I would love to be able to fix this without going through all of them to put them back into their respective folders manually. Any idea how I can fix this?

Thanks to Proton expanding my Bookmarks Menu off the bottom of the screen, I was re-arranging my bookmarks folders. While wondering which of my folders I had to prune, I noticed another in-built redundancy. The entry "Manage Bookmarks Ctrl+Shift+O" appears twice, at the top and the bottom of the menu. Incidentally the bottom entry is misaligned (Firefox v89 on Windows).

Is there a particular reasons for this duplication? Can I remove either of these entries?

I had a similar problem last year when an auto update came through. After several suggestions didn't help I opted to reinstall a previous version and upgrade that. Now it's back again with the v94 update.

I've disabled ALL extensions. No help. Themes don't seem to make a difference. However, when I went to about:config and entered "toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets" to make it true to allow chrome.css files to work it began immediately. Reset it to false and "X"s are back. Set config to TRUE and it screws up the "X"s. Again, all this is with all extensions off.

I hate the transparency of the tabs and menu bars so I need to set .css files. How else can I do it?
