How to transfer old Browsing History from Firefox to another one on another CPU?

Hi there, I have an old laptop which has FireFox installed on it with a lot of older Browsing History dated as far back as 2015 or 2016 which I've been attempting to transfer over to my newer Laptop's FireFox by synchronizing my FireFox account on both browsers. The bookmarks & tabs were synchronized between both, however, the browsing history from the older laptop doesn't transfer over to my newer laptop's Firefox.

I searched online for some troubleshooting, & discovered how to use about:config, where I found

  1. "places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages'" &
  2. "places.history.expiration.max_pages",

& for both I set the value to 999999. The result was the same.

I would like to inquire for assistance regarding this, if possible. Thank you!

Why doesn't Firefox load the images on the https://wvculture.org/ at the Vital Records tab in the Vital Research Records Search Selection of the Birth-Death-Marriage records? I have to open those on Microsoft Edge. I've tried closing all Add-ons in the Tools tab.

Hello,

I would like to set up different profiles for different purposes. I tried creating a new profile with the profile manager. When I opened the new profile in a new window, it asked me to sign in. After signing in, it synced all my bookmarks and settings from the default profile.

I then tried to edit the new profile by deleting the bookmarks that I don't need it to have. But this was then instantly synced to my default profile and I lost those bookmarks entirely.

So, I don't understand how to make separate profiles that have separate settings and bookmarks and whatnot. I would like to have different profiles that are all attached to the same account and can be used on multiple devices, but i don't want them to sync with one another. That seems to completely defeat the purpose of having multiple profiles (they all end up exactly the same).

I tried to get around this problem by creating an entirely new Firefox account, but then I get a message saying it will merge it's info with the account I just logged out of. This behavior makes no sense. Lets assume I have more than one user on a machine, and they each have their own account. If one logs off, and the other comes and logs in, now all their info gets lumped together?

I also tried to have two Firefox windows open, with one signed in and one not, but they mirror each other. So I can't work in multiple profiles or accounts on the same machine at the same time.

Back to the main question. I assume I am just using profiles wrong. How do I set it up so different profiles DO NOT sync with one another, but only with themselves across multiple devices.

I like to keep a copy of all my passwords, just in case. Maybe I get a new computer, or, maybe something gets corrupted or accidentally deleted, ... etc. I've been using computers for a long time and ... Stuff Happens.

I wish Firefox made things a little more user-friendly.

When exporting passwords, the default file name is just "logins". Sure, I can rename it to something more sensible, like "Firefox Passwords 2022-09-27", but, shouldn't Firefox automatically do that for me?

The only file format options are .csv and .xml, both of which are completely useless for the average person.

Sure, I can import the .csv file into Excel, and then spend a lot of time stripping out all the unnecessary stuff, but again, shouldn't Firefox do that for me? When I export passwords Firefox warns me that the file is readable by anyone, so, why not just export something a little more sensible and usable.

A plain text file where each line just consists of

URL     Username     Password

I'm a little disappointed that there doesn't seem to be any way to submit feature requests directly to Mozilla, but hopefully someone will see this and consider it.

Although I can access every other aspect of my school account, I am locked out of email by a screen telling me: "Your login request has expired. Try logging back into the application" with the accompanying tab reading: "Universal Prompt Error".

Regardless of my logging out and trying again, and rebooting my computer, contacting the school's IT dept, I continue to be locked out through Firefox. Chrome will let me in.

Please help me resolve this problem.

Every time firefox updates I am unable to sign in to my bank's website. I go to MS Edge and can sign in normally. After a few days or weeks pass I will be able to sign in again with FF. This is the message I get when sign in fails:

Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://onlinebanking.huntington.com/pkmslogin.form" on this server. Reference #18.48a4c017.1664292875.2011dd39

What up with that?
