Since I am unable to find any forum dedicated to add-ons I'll post my question here and hope for the best. How do I transfer my FVD Speed Dial cells in my old laptop (win 7) to Firefox in my new laptop (win 10). Please don't tell me I'm going to have to redo each one by hand. I did check the Export button on Speed Dial but it doesn't transfer the custom pictures. Is there an easier way to do this? Like maybe moving a specific file(s)? Thank you - Sharon D.

Firefox is persistently putting downloads in the wrong location (1-16-21)

I am currently on Firefox 84.0 on Windows 10.

Every time I download any type of file, Firefox puts the file inside of (C:) > Users > tmmor > AppData > Local > Temp. This is extremely frustrating because I have to manually move the files to my 'Downloads' folder every time I download a new file. I have changed my settings numerous times. In Options > General > Files and applications. I have selected the "Save files to" and I have changed it to many different locations and my files still end up in (C:) > Users > tmmor > AppData > Local >Temp. I have even resorted to selecting the setting "Always ask you where to save files." After closing and reopening the browser, I try to download something and Firefox never prompts me to select a download location (Contrary to my settings). Firefox just automatically downloads the file and puts it in (C:) > Users > tmmor > AppData > Local > Temp.

After looking for solutions online I have went into "about:config" and I found out that "browser.download.dir" was already set to "C:\Users\tmmor\Downloads" (My intended location) and "browser.download.lastDir" was already set to the same location. I have also set "browser.download.useDownloadsDir" from false to true. Firefox still puts my downloads into (C:) > Users > tmmor > AppData > Local > Temp.

I am also the administrator on my device. I am not aware of any windows settings that are blocking Firefox from putting my downloads into my "Downloads" folder. Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome put my downloads into my "Downloads" folder every single time I download something, why cant Firefox do the same?

I also do not believe that any of my extensions or plug-in's are causing this issue, I have very few extensions and plug-in's.

Firefox is persistent at saving my downloads to (C:) > Users > tmmor > AppData > Local > Temp. I have never gotten Firefox to save my downloads to my intended location (The downloads folder). Can anyone please instruct me how to resolve this issue. This is my last resort to solving this problem, nothing has worked for me. Thank you for your time, this experience has been stressful for me.

I set this up Firefox up first on about the 14th -- no problem with e-mail. My mail and other shortcuts have disappeared and don't want to re-import from Edge or the older program. I don't want to sync it, just get the e-mail and find time to install a software that doesn't want to install, but has nothing to do with Firefox. I have been trying all afternoon and don't have any recourse but to go back to Windows if I can't get this resolved.

I have an existing problem because this computer was new a year ago and came with a free Office Max 1 year tech service. They remapped both the browser and this desktop and could not get it so I could access my files from both computers and save on this one. We were going thru my daughter's cancer, husband's stroke and my arm surgery and I couldn't come downstairs often. Finally called them one last time and seemed to work, but next day was a mess and I couldn't even get on the internet. I did get that straightened out and moved to Firefox. Worked fine until we had a storm and Microsoft got in on the reset after the snow storm. Now Firefox won't let me have my mail on this computer without syncing -- has always worked fine. Actually if I send a file to myself that is too big, it just went into the sent box and when I could get downstairs I could open it, work on it and send back the same way.

I do have a friend who can help me reset the computer when this covid thing is over and he has time to get here as he is quite busy with Boeing computers and our church computers-- I'm afraid to reset the computer without being sure all my card and WP programs are saved and will work. In the meantime, if I can just get this darn e-mail set up, I'll be satisfied.

Under the category General Updates, can you please explain to me what this mean: Use a background service to install updates

Not really knowing how this effects my OS, I was wondering if it effects Microsoft OS and its updates and installation. I have not been able to install Windows 10 latest update for 2/9

I’m running a windows 8.1 computer with several open tabs in my browser. This computer crashed and I can’t get back into windows to sync up (I’ve tried booting from various sources, automatic repair, etc. it just won’t boot up). I hope that I’ll be able to extract my important files from my hard drive. I’m setting up a new windows 10 computer. My question is, can I copy over a file from my old computer to my new computer that Firefox will recognize and open up the tabs that I was last working on from my old computer? I have not synced, but the last time that I was able to use my old computer I did close Firefox cleanly, and I was able to log off from windows with no serious issues. Hopefully there is a file that I can copy over which will simply allow me to continue working on my open tabs. Thanks in advance.

Hi. After a BSOD I have clean installed Windows 10 and Firefox on SSD. My data is on a separate HD including my profiles folders. Sadly the Firefox profile got overwritten with my Thunderbird profile - woops! So I am trying to restore from an old 2017 back up. Bookmarks have come through but I cannot get the logins and passwords to work. I have tried copying the following files into the profiles folder from the restored back up folder:

   logins.json
   key3.db
   Cert8
   prefs
   signon.sqlite

I have tried this with other older backups too I don't understand why the profile is being recognised (I have my old bookmarks back) but no the logins and passwords. Is there any way of testing whether they are corrupt? If all else fails, is there any other way of 'reading' the information in those files so I can manually enter them again in the new profile If you are wondering why I am going to a 2017 backup it is because my backup program decided to stop backing up my profiles after that date without my noticing nor asking my permission!! Grateful for any help
