After over a decade i am finally getting a new computer. It's in the mail. Any day now...

I wish to transfer my entire FF configuration to a new computer (when it arrives, up to 10 days from now-). Bookmarks, extensions, themes, look, feel, bells and whistles, all in one swoop.

I do have a sync account but i am honestly afraid to use it. I stopped syncing some time ago when i was trouble shooting and now i fear that if i turn sync on it might overwrite the configuration i am presently running with whatever was stored once some time ago.

Because i have done some colossally stupid things in the past that resulted in great data loss and many weeks of recovery, this time i think it best not to presume i will figure it out, but instead to ask you folks, the experts-

Many thanks, -Bruce

I am running the latest version of Firefox as of 11/23/22. My main computer is not working (can't get its logon to work) so I am using my tablet which has more or less the same version of Firefox(one week difference). Please don't tell me to copy profile files from the old computer - I can not get on. Nor can I sync for the same reason.

On 11/10, I exported my passwords from Firefox and my bookmarks. The Passwords are in an excel csv file which I can open and read. The bookmarks are in a json file.

I tried to import the passwords after using the config signon solution offered by Boca. Firefox opens the folder and supposedly opens the file, but no passwords are imported. Please tell me how to make this work or fix the bug. I really don't want to cut and paste 300+ passwords.

I also tried to import the bookmarks, but it doesn't seem to have a way to do that.

Please help.

Thank you

Any help appreciated

For some reason PDF (and I think sometimes other downloads) fail when I try to do them on Firefox. They work perfecty well on Chrome. I either get the message 'download failed', or if the download completes, then before it oopens I get the error message saying that there has been some problem. Paradoxically, this also happened when I tried to download Firefox's own recent update. What can I do to fix this?

Running Win10 and latest Firefox browser. Trying to get rid of 'Your browser is being managed by your organization' Followed Regedit instructions - only default is listed - no policy. Looked in Mozilla Firefox in Program Files & Program Files (x86) - no policies.json in Distribution. Even did a search in those subfiles - nothing. So how do I get rid of this? I was searching 'Broiling Frigidaire Induction' and one of the videos corrupted my original Firefox. I needed a hard stop to get our of that. I deleted the app and reloaded, and I keep getting the 'Browser managed...' message. Bummer!

It's 7 months since the last thread about failed downloads and there was no solution found then. Is anyone still experiencing failed downloads (from yahoo, aol mail servers especially)? Answer - I am! I have to keep using Chrome (which I don't like, it's slow) and I have all my bookmarks in Firefox and it's a quick browser. Please Mr Mozilla, fix this issue! As posted back in 2021, the feature suddenly stopped with the update at that time (around 102 or earlier). Now we're on 106.0.5 and still not downloading.
