Sending laptop in for warranty, question about backing up Firefox

Hello,

I have an Acer laptop that I'm about to send in for a warranty repair for several different issues. I was told by Acer that it will likely be reset/reformatted upon arrival. Also, I was informed that the laptop may be replaced with a completely different unit at their discretion.

I would like to obviously keep all of my Firefox info, history, bookmarks, etc. and be able to restore them to the computer when it is returned to me, be it the same laptop or a new one.

Can someone please instruct me on the proper way to do this?

Is it as simple as copying my Profile folder to another drive, and then reinstalling it after I reinstall Firefox back on the laptop (be it my original one or a new one) when it has been returned to me?

Do I need to use the Profile Manager?

I bought a used Lenovo to use while my Acer is in for repairs. Today, I think that I successfully synced the two of them. (I have a Windows phone and thus no Firefox app for my phone, and could not enter a phone number to "complete" the sync as instructed) but it seems to have worked.

Will the bookmarks, history, tabs, etc from my Acer disappear from showing up on the Lenovo when the Acer laptop is reset by the factory?

(Or should I even delete Firefox from that Acer that I am sending in just out of privacy/security concerns?)

Thank to any and all who can assist me with doing this correctly. I apologize for any ignorance on my part, I've just never had to send in a unit for repair before.

Thanks, Chris

Using Firefox 66.0.2 (64 bit) on a Macbook pro OS 10.14.4. Firefox has been my default browser for years but this issue has appeared since the last update of Firefox. When Firefox is opened I get three tabs: one for my home page (Duckduck go), one for Ghostery settings, and one for Youtube HD settings. If I close Ghostery and YTHD the same thing will occur the next time Firefox is opened. At first I thought that the preferences to Ghostery and YTHD needed to be set (or reset), but these changes are not updated. I checked preferences of Ghostery and YTHD upon opening Firefox (when the additional tabs open) and preferences are not updated? Have no idea why this change is happening.

I am generating links in PHP from the database. A generated link is:

"<a target="_blank" href="events/pdf/oinlineRenwal.6.pdf">Online Renewal</a>"

When I click on the link, it opens the file explorer. It opens a new tab when using Chrome.

The website is https://rscds-sf.org, 'Beginner's Ball Flyer' and 'Truckee Workshop' link.

I have reset the user agent, restarted in safe mode and cleared cache and cookies.

Google Maps redirecting to undesireable website

I've been having issues with Firefox on Ubuntu 18.10 for a while now. For whatever reason, whenever I try to access maps.google.com it states that the website is unavailable, whereas that maps.google.ca redirects to ww1.google.ca which, in turn, redirects to mediadiscovery.net - which is a website blocked by my router's adblocker. When I use Chromium or Vivaldi, I don't have that same issue, the website is completely accessible; also, if I instead use www.google.com/maps then I actually reach Google Maps from Firefox. I've already tried clearing cookies and cache, as well as restarting Firefox fresh. I only have one extension enabled (GNOME Shell Integration) and 3 plugins (OpenH264, Widevine and Shockwave Flash).

Any help is much appreciated. Also, I got the troubleshooting information while running in Safe Mode, which had no impact on the behavior I previously described.

At various points in my usage of Firefox, if my default home page isn't ChillTab, and even sometimes when it is, Firefox will randomly quit and restart with ChillTab as the default. Virtually every single time it has happened I was in the middle of watching a video. What's worse is that Firefox will demand updates so as to change the homepage to Yahoo.

When I start to type an address in the URL bar, I get a drop down box directly below the url/address bar. The dropdown, which is as wide as my firefox window, contains a little magnifying glass icon and the text "Search with Yahoo" where Yahoo is my default, and only, search engine. I don't want this drop down box at all but I can't seem to disable it.

Every time I start firefox it nags me to "Set up sync" and it's driving me nuts. I only surf the net on my PC. I'm an old guy and my arthritic fingers won't allow me to use small devices to surf the net. I have no other devices to sync to. And I NEVER WILL have other devices to sync to. I am a long term firefox user, and don't want to use any other browser - but this is driving me nuts.

BTW, I get that you want to remind me about software updates, and I am fine with this. They are important - but not this sync business.

When using Firefox 66.0.2 on MacOS Mojave 10.14.4, when i click links from applications, it opens it 2nd tab

When I open Firefox normally y the application, it just opens one tab (in this case depending on the option set)

But when i click on links in applications (Thunderbird, Apple mail etc). the browser opens: The firx tab is blank, while the second ta displays the page from the clicked link.

Disabling "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" under Preference "help" but doesn't solve the issue as it opens in a new window rather than a 2nd tab. Is there an about:config option i could set?
