I need to copy browsing history and bookmarks from one laptop with FF v.60 to another laptop with FF v.52.

I know there are different ways of doing this, but in my case I don't have use of the source laptop. BUT, I do have the full profile saved in both laptops. I also had saved a json bookmarks copy, but it's 5 days old. No huge deal but I had some major restructuring of my bookmarks yesterday.

There's also sync, but I tried to just sync history and it does nothing. Plus I'm not sure if it's going to sync to "last updated" which is actually the other (destination) laptop with FF v52.

In my profile I see bookmarks clearly, but no history. They are both in places.sqlite? Should I just copy this? What else would be copied?

By the way, in bookmarkbackups folder, I see the last jsonlz4 file is from June 9 12:10 am, not June 10 12:10 am as it should have been perhaps. Does this jsonlz4 file work with the restore command of "import and backup"?

Thank you!

Ever since I began using a Mac desktop computer (in 2018), every time it was shut down or restarted, all of my Firefox settings, add-ons, bookmarks, logins, cookies, and history disappeared. Everything is returned to the defaults as if I never had Firefox on my computer before. I never had this problem with any Windows computer, so I thought this problem must be compatibility with Apple not being good. But it works fine as long as I don't close my browser completely. What is going on? Is this fixable?

My operating system is still Mojave, but Firefox is up to date. I only have a desktop computer and like it that way.

I can't get the bookmark menu back on the screen after update. The drop down only stays on the screen long enough to select one. I have to keep pulling it down after each selection. Some of the bookmarks do not appear on the list. That makes it very slow to check a list of bookmarks. I can't get the bookmark menu on the left side of the screen at all.

Long time User of Firefox. Everyone day, one of the first sites I read is WSJ.com. Recently (now running 89.0 Firefox) the WSJ.com website has been totally jumbled. I cross checked it on Chrome, where it was working fine. I have reported this to WSJ.com, and now also to Firefox. Is there a new setting requirement in Firefox 89.0 for that page? This is the only regular site I visit where this is occurring.

Any insights?

I'm using the latest version of Firefox (89.0) on both of my Windows 7 computers as well as on my iPhone. I have this really annoying glitch where I'll bookmark a page, and Firefox will occasionally duplicate that bookmark hundreds of times. I've gone in and deleted the duplicates, but then the problem re-occurs, so I'm trying to figure out how to finally fix this! I've already spent several hours looking through your help forums and trying to fix it, but nothing seems to work. Here's what I've done:

I turned off sync on all my devices. I also noticed that I had the iCloud synch extension on one of my computers, so I removed that, since I read that might cause some issues. Then I went and cleaned up the bookmarks on one of my computers, deleting all the duplicate entries, and I exported an HTML version of my bookmarks to my computer and also created a backup .json file. I refreshed Firefox on that computer. And I changed my sync password, since I read somewhere that that would supposedly force my old data to be deleted from Firefox's server.

Then I turned sync back on on that one computer, hoping that the latest version of my bookmarks that were on that computer would now update to Firefox's server. But instead of replacing the old bookmarks file in the cloud, it simply added back the old duplicate bookmarks to my computer (which apparently never got deleted from Firefox servers, despite the password change). Super frustrating. Isn't there a way to force a one-way sync, so the version of the bookmarks file that I have locally -- which has the latest changes -- takes priority??

I then tried going to "Import bookmarks from HTML," hoping that the version I had previously saved would replace this bad, outdated version I had downloaded from the server, but that didn't seem to do anything (I guess import only adds new bookmarks but doesn't delete existing bookmarks?). Could I import the json file instead? If so, how do I do that? I've considered deleting all my bookmarks and then importing the html file again to see if that fixes it, but it looks like the html file doesn't include the bookmarks on my toolbar. Is that correct? If so, I don't want to lose them.

Not sure what this is so glitchy and so difficult to fix. Can someone please help?

Just updated My "MALWARE" the Anti-malware software application. It asked me if I wanted to enable some software artificial intelligence see everything know everything help with everything feature I clicked learn more then could not go back to question page. I DO NOT WANT TO grant such permission, I have looked thru "Malware's" settings and cannot find it. Iit starts, I believe, with the letters "Ge" and is one word, (Gestation?...dont know). Firefox was supposed to have a problem with it and warn me but I rebooted and Firefox said nothing. How do I find this feature in "malware the app" and disable-kill it? I never authorized it but I did not have a chance to say no eithersay no either. Signed: Freaked out

Dear Firefox community, I do not know why you are not solving your browser-short time memory loss problem! When I download a video / file, the internet is disconnected in the middle, and it takes a while to connect, then the download starts again from 0%! It wastes both my time and the internet. If the power connection is disconnected while downloading again - I don't get any backup of that file when I connect to the internet after the power connection is restored ...! However, other browsers have this advantage. I like Firefox a lot, but this short time memory loss system bothers me a lot. I hope to fix this issue in the next update.

I am trying to read and respond to comments on articles on the Foxnews.com site. I have been doing this for a long time, Suddenly I can not.

Using iMac with latest SW. Firefox latest version. Also tried Chrome and Safari.

When I go to their home page my computer is logged in as usual automatically. However when I click on an article it displays the article but the comments section is never displayed and my computer is not logged on on that page, Nor is there a button to login again.

I have turned off tracking protection. And listedf the website as to allow ads etc I think, Not sure about the latter,


Baffling me. Any help would be nice.

On ubuntu 20.04, the snap version of firefox can't play some videos. Some youtube videos will play but streams won't, and then I get the message "to play video, you need to install the required video codecs". On telegram web and tweetdeck I also get this message while trying to play some video.

Since it's a snap, nothing I do on my system will solve the problem, I cannot install any codecs.

It's firefox 89.0

I am starting a new thread and repeating what I had written in the old thread which had too many responses to follow coherently.

I am not sure what td47 means as I don't have this issue as I only use DuckDuckGo which is there when open a new tab.

What want to know how you get the icons in the header of the screen to be "seeable". I believe with my header I always had white print which is now nearly invisible. Not only that but all the icons up there shrank and became outlines only instead of solid objects! I have cats batik_01 theme. It seems all the themes I have ever used had write print but I got by ok til now. Is it that I have to have a lighter toned theme in order to see everything up there again or what?

I'd take a screenshot but you can't of the header/or I don't know how to do this.
