I had posted my question yesterday and received a response from jscher2000. I sent a reply to the response by email a short while ago, but I wasn't sure it went through. Therefore, at the possible expense of having you receive the reply twice, I have recopied it here:

Thank you for trying to help me download Firefox onto my computer. As per your advice, I first tried shutting down and restarting my computer. That did not work. Then I went onto the link you sent me: https://www. mozilla,org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release . The installation began, but only got up to around 80 - 90%. It stopped at the point where it said Execute: "C:|Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\default-browser-agent.exe" register-task 308046B... (It looks like there might be some more letters and/or numbers after the "B", but I can't see what they are.) I waited a few more hours to see if the installation would continue, but it did not. I then went back to try downloading Firefox in the regular way. First I got a message, "Now installing. Firefox will be ready in just a few moments." Again, installation proceeded to around 80 - 90 %, and then I got a message, "Hmmm. For some reason, we could not install Firefox. Choose OK to start over." Starting over didn't help. I got the same message. Any further help or advice that you can give me would be greatly appreciated. drzee1946 email: [removed from public support forum]

After downloading latest version of Firefox my bookmarks where deleted, so I restored my laptop back to an earlier date and now just Dismiss it when it says an update is available. How will I know when this problem has been taken care of where I can update Firefox? Firefox is the only browser I have as I've did everything to block Microsoft from taking over my laptop. I'm fixing to delete my old Microsoft account to complete that procedure. I'd have to research Chrome to see if they attempt to control what I can do with my laptop like Microsoft does. My only problem with Firefox was they allowed Microsoft to do it's best to change my system to Edge, but I'm still fighting them.

Just noticed at bottom of this page under Troubleshooting information,

 "securitySoftware": {
   "registeredAntiVirus": "Microsoft Defender Antivirus"

Now I see I still have connections to Microsoft. Thank you Mozilla for showing me this. I've got to change my security for this. Hope Firefox has it's on.

Hello

I have been using firefox sync for a long time to migrate between PC to PC

My firefox sync profile is full of old stuff and I would like to clean up my settings by wiping out my firefox sync settings and starting fresh.

However, before doing that I wish to export all my data/settings/password/cookies/bookmarks and everything, so files on my computer.

Files that I can read in notepad and inspect. See which settings I have in there and decide which settings I want to put back in my new installation.

I have found a locked question about this on this forum

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1065938

It mentions two plugins for this purpose

FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension)

OPIE

Unfortunately and worryingly, they have been removed from the firefox addon store

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/febe/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/opie/

I found a wikipedia article about FEBE

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefox_Environment_Backup_Extension a very old link to download a probably broken version https://febe.en.softonic.com/

and a reddit thread about FEBE which states that there is no equivalent and that it is not possible to export firefox settings anymore

https://old.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/t2zmjb/febe_alternatives/

as for OPIE, I am unable to find explanation of what it was, where it went or who used it

I know that my profile is stored in

C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\4vdt083m.default-release

However the files and structure in that folder are inscrutable

I would like to have control over the settings of my browser, what they are, to save them and modify them on my own terms.

I would like to export about:config completely to a regular plain text file, edit them and import them back in.

Automatic duplication of data from Cloudfare when I use my VPN

I've noticed that when I use my VPN the Broadband data volume measured by my Glasswire traffic meter software monitor is doubled. I've tested it numerous times, and when I download a file it appears to download it automatically to Cloudfare as the volume is almost the exact double of the file size and double the amount as measured through my VPN. Could this problem be associated with the DNS over HTTPS feature. I've changed this setting so that Cloudfare doesn't load anything automatically, but there is no change. Is there another automatic Cloud setting I should change or could this problem be independent of Firefox. Thank you. -Reply to moderator Co-rel "answer": @Co-rel, You are not answering my question. And are you inferring there could be a bug in my Firefox version and I would need to debug it myself? I am asking if there is a default setup in association with Cloudfare which would record all of my traffic and/or downloads. I've canceled the default DNS to HTTPS Cloudfare default. Is there another automatic default service clouding to Cloudfare storing our data automatically built-in Firefox? My Traffic and Data Monitor Glasswire records or measures my traffic as anticipated when I browse without using my VPN. But when I use the VPN the data count is doubled and what newly appears on the register is the URL of Cloudfare which is the same size approximately as the file downloaded, doubling the traffic. I tested by isolating a simple maneuver of downloading a single 150 Mb file. I did it twice with the same result. I did the same thing twice with a 1 Gb file last Wednesday, got the same results.

I have a PC with Windows 7 64b that I have updated after having synchronized with two laptops and one Android. After that Firefox works on all the units except the PC. On that I can see all Firefox shortcuts and Firefox account. But when I try to connect to a web place the screen is blank. I have also tried to sut down the computer and start again. No change. RAM memory is okay, storage on unit C: is a bit small and the CPU is Intel Core i5 3470@ 3,2GH instead of Pentium 4 and 4GH. Should I go back to an older version of Firefox that is not som demanding or is there someting else I can fix?

Do you have my e-mail address? bernt@bernt-lindberg.se

Hi

I tried moving the firefox profile from my old windows 10 laptop to my new windows 11 laptop but the migration wasn't successful.

I tried the below steps:

Clicked the firefox three bars at the top right corner of the browser->then the help button->then more troubleshooting information->then clicked the open folder button next to the profile folder->then copied the profile to an external USB ->then took this firefox profile and copied it to the existing firefox profile in the new windows 11 laptop via the same location.

However, the data: cookies, bookmarks & history from the prior firefox profile (windows 10) are missing once restarting up the firefox browser in the (windows 11)

Any ideas if there may be something I'm missing.

Thanks,

Chris
