Unable to import saved firefox profile (from windows 7 32-bit, to windows 10 64-bit) - new profile has none of my data

My attempt at transferring profile from an existing machine to a new machine has not produced the intended result, and I need help.

I saved my firefox profile (on a 32-bit windows 7 machine; firefox was fully up to date) without firefox running, in a ZIP file (the letter number combination followed by dot followed by default), then copied the ZIP file to the new machine (windows 10 64-bit), unzipped it (so I had the same file name as from the old machine), then copied this folder into position at

C:\users\user\appdata\roaming\mozilla\firefox\profiles

I then started firefox on the new machine, went to about:profiles, created new profile, selected the folder (which was present at this step), then completed the procedure and started a new firefox with the new profile (the option given in about:profiles).

The new instance of firefox has none of my data (several thousand bookmarks, passwords, etc.); instead looks like the other (default new) profile.

The existing profile file set was (after this procedure) visible in

C:\users\user\appdata\local\mozilla\firefox\profiles

The restored profile is running now as "Default User" and reflects the folder I transferred from the old machine (except that I changed the word "default" in that folder to "main", leaving the number-letter part and the dot unchanged.)

No errors were indicated from firefox (which is running version 83 now) during any steps of the old back-up/archive save step or the new restore/recover step.

What am I doing wrong? How can I recover my existing profile data? The procedure, while not very friendly, seems straightforward enough. I don't want to go into the details of recovering specific database files/folders; I'd just like the profile I had before functioning in the new machine.

Please help

Firefox ESR on Devuan, both 2.0 and Beowulf, has a problem involving resizing. Webpages that formally displayed fine now are too large (the indicator shows 100%, but I must reduce it to 80% to display as it did before). Other Linux distributions, for example, Linux Mint and openSUSE, do not have this problem (PaleMoon on the Devuan system does not have the problem).

The hardware is old: Intel 3rd Generation Core processor, 8 GB memory, SSD connected via USB 3.0.

The best solution might be to run both Firefox ESR and regular Firefox. I can download the latter, extract it, move the folder to the desktop, and double-click on "firefox" to start it, similar to how I run PaleMoon. Is there a way to avoid them using the same profile?

Hello, I am using a new HP computer with Firefox as my main browser. I use two screens. I have had problems with Firefox for the past couple of weeks. I usually have a couple of windows of Firefox open. One on the first screen with multiple tabs and another on the other screen. I also run chat programs, Discord, Antivirus programs, Zoom, Slack, and a few others.

Firefox crashing has also crashed other programs. I have had Discord crash a few times and Displayfusion crash as well.

I updated FireFox to the newest version. I even uninstalled and then reinstalled. I updated Windows. Flash is turned off. My video drivers are updated. I checked for viruses and spyware. I did have some Bit Coin Mining malware detected, but it was quarantined last week. All scans now are clear.

All other browsers (Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Opera) hold the position of the cursor/view when opening and moving to a newly opened tab. When returning to the previous tab (in those browsers), the original position/view is as it was before the new tab was viewed. This is not the case in Firefox!

When returning to a previous tab in Firefox, the tab resets itself to the top of the page, instead of holding the place that was left when the new tab was opened/viewed. This is extremely frustrating, and time-wasting.

Is there a setting that will hold the viewed location of a tab when another tab is opened/viewed, when the original tab is viewed again?

I'm a LONG TIME T-Bird user - as far back as I can remember - and I never thought the day would come when I would be looking to ditch T-Bird, but the new version is SO HORRIBLE I am now seeking to ditch it.

Specifically, it is now NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE to send an email to more than one person.

It used to be easy - just hit TAB after putting in one address, and it opens another TO field. And it was super easy to change TO to BCC to CC or REPLY-TO or whatever.

Then some moron decides that they want to kill T-Bird by giving it such an impossibly difficult interface that nobody will ever want to use it!

What is going on here?

Why is it impossibly difficult to send email to more than one person?

I am sure I'm not the only person who ever wants to send email to more than one recipient!

IMPOSSIBLE TO USE!!!

screenshot: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mp8ja4vt5tf0t26/Screenshot%202020-10-27%2012.16.02.png?dl=0

Is there anybody that can recommend a different mail agent?

Again, I used to love T-Bird to death, but this new version is so horrible I can not get my work done, even if I had extra hours every day to spend clicking endlessly around this incredibly stupid and unusable interface.

PLEASE HELP!!!

I don't understand why firefox makes it so difficult to stop websites from autoplaying videos. Case in point: fox news and fox business news web sites. They have that stupid pop up when you scroll down the page, so if the main video is blocked the popup ignores it and starts playing. The preferences->autoplay doesn't allow you to enter a site to block and clicking on the lock on the url bar doesn't work because the permissions line isn't clickable, so we are left to resort to about:config which also fails to block these sites. This is very frustrating and if anything will drive me to another browser its stuff like this.
