Hi, I've had Firefox 64 bit running on Windows for a while and recently was given a newer machine where I installed a newer version of the OS. I put the old HDD's as slaves in this new machine. So the old FF is in the slave machine.

I have also installed new Firefox on this new Win10 LTSC, but when I go looking in my now slave HDD I can see FF, but cannot see any bookmarks. Additionally, when I run the FF executable in the old HDD it still runs the new FF, without the old bookmarks.

So how can I extract the old bookmarks on the older FF? Without withdrawing the now slave HDD and making it a master again? As it's now missing most of the OS files too.

Thank you!

I am on Firefox version 102. It assures me I am up to date. My credit union insists I must be on version 107 to log in. I was able to download and install version 107, but it gives me a different icon and none of my bookmarks are there. It is like I installed it new rather than upgraded. I have no bookmarks, setting, etc.

A week or two ago I was surprised when opening Firefox it asked if I wanted it to be my default browser as it already was default. I said okay and it opened but none of my saved passwords available nor were my bookmarks. I noticed that there were TWO Firefox icons on the quick start bar on my 2 month old Windows 11 laptop. I clicked the other icon, that opened and my bookmarks & passwords were there. I clicked Help -> About Firefox and both are the same version. I looked at Windows Apps and there's only one Firefox showing there. I don't know how to remove the second instance. I attached a screen shot showing two icons on the quick start bar, newly installed Firefox behind original installed version asking to become default browser.

I have Firefox 107.0.1 installed on my windows 11 22H2 OS Build 22621.900 and I had around 63 tabs or so open. I ALWAYS click the "X" in the top right corner and then it brings up the "close xx" tabs window. Then when I reopen firefox I can click history>restore previous session. Anyways I closed regular firefox.. because a friend of mine wanted to look up something but not interfere with my open tabs so we opened firefox private browsing.. thinking it wouldn't interfere with normal firefox... Yet when I went back to normal firefox and tried to go to history>restore previous session it was grayed out. So how do I get a hold of Mozilla to restore my account and stuff to 12/01/2022 at around 3am CST? Also how do I let them know that firefox private browsing has this issue with messing up open tabs in non-private browsing firefox? This is severely annoying and disappointing. I have tabs open for a reason and they should all stay there until I close them. But now they're gone and I wish to have them back. So if someone could let me know how to get a hold of a Mozilla/firefox staff member so they can revert my account that would be awesome. Just to be clear I was able to replicate the issue by having a few tabs open in normal firefox and then closing it.. then opening private browsing firefox and closing it. You should be able to go to history>restore previous session in normal firefox to be able to get your tabs back.. but are unable to do so after opening and closing private browsing firefox. Why is this? I thought they were separate and shouldn't interfere with each other in this way?

When I right-click a bookmark folder and select "Sort By Name", it sorts sub-folders to the top, then individual bookmarks after.

I prefer folders and files not to be segregated like that, but to be sorted together. That is how I have it in my file manager, I'm used to it, I much prefer it. I would like to be able to duplicate that behavior in Firefox's bookmarks. Is that possible?

The browser plug-in for Spectrum Security Suite (F-Secure) does not appear to download.

I do not know where the problem is. It could be with Spectrum software. I did call them first. The lady on the phone says it is a Firefox problem and to seek help from Mozilla.

When I click on the box for setting up secure browsing (I have tried both boxes (top right and 2nd to bottom left) on the screen in the image attached), I just get a new window open with "https://download.sp.f-secure.com/online-safety/fs_firefox_https.xpi" in the navigation box and the rest is white space. There is no spinning wheel, no bell, nothing.

I do not even know what is supposed to happen, as it has been years since I last set up the protection. I do know based on messages received and the displayed log, the browser protection was still working as of 10 days ago (21 Nov 2022).

I actually do most of my browsing now on Linux but I still play a few games that are Windows only so sometimes browse from this system.

I had multiple tabs open that I was using, including the costco.ca page, when the update happened (I can't remember the exact details). All my other open tabs, and all pages since, have worked fine since, but the costco page does not open. At first there were options to check and something about a ceritficate. Now the address shows costco.ca444/Genericerror it says 'Problem loading page' in the tab heading. And the page shows '

The page isn’t redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

There is no info on how to fix this - and I've spent way too much time trying to fix it. I added it to the exceptions page. No joy. Works fine in Chrome. Very frustrating.

I have Windows 11 on my PC. Is there a way to fix this? Might be an idea to add a link to how to fix it to the error message. Thanks.

Hi!

I'm using the browser on linux mint 21. It works fine as always but I have this minor and annoying problem with the click on links.

Every time I click on a link from an external application firefox open a new tab/window with but doesn't show me the browser. To do that I have to click a second time on the hyperlink and at this point firefox will appear with 2 identical tabs opened.

To avoid that I have to click once and search myself the browser window.
