I have long time account. My wife took over my computer and made it hers. I want to move my old (hers now) account to her email, while releasing my email so that I can start another profile on a different computer with MY email. I added her email as a secondary, made it the default, then deleted my email from the profile. then I went over to my computer, tried to sign in with my email, but it's telling me i need to sign in with the Primary email address. so it didn't release my email. and i can't create a new account with my email address. i'm a few hours into searching for an answer and would appreciate some help. thank you

There are a million support articles on this and other sites that show all the steps to importing your passwords from Chrome to Firefox, and they usually include a screenshot that is identical to the one I've included, except for they also have a box you can check to import passwords. I successfully imported my cookies, browsing history, and bookmarks, but there was no passwords box for me to check and I haven't been able to import my passwords. Why is it that option not showing up for me?

I then go into about:profiles and have to delete multiple profiles that have appeared and set my original one to default, which works fine and i have all my bookmarks back. However as soon as I switch my macbook off and on again, I am back to square one and have to delete old profiles and set my old one to default. This is incredibly frustrating.

I'm finally moving to Windows 10 with a new computer. I want to keep my Firefox bookmarks, saved passwords, and (if possible) settings from my old Windows 7 computer.

After installing Firefox on my new computer, do I need to do anything more than copy to the new (10) computer the final profile from my old (7) computer?

Hi,

after I received the 'Firefox appears to be slow' message for a couple of times in a row I decided to use the 'clean install' option that it (the browser) offers. I was under the impression that you could choose what to clean and what to keep, but apparently I was wrong. I now have a clean install and all, but everything is reset - back to default.

I do have the old files on my desktop and tried to import them like mentioned here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1212433 But it didn't work at all. And to be honest ... I don't remember all of my passwords, which is what I truly need from my old files.

Trying to install 73.0 Beta 11 but keeps failing with "patch apply failed." I think this is a workstation permissions issue but I need more info...

I'm currently on 73.0b5 (64-bit) on Windows 10. I'm trying to use the "Update to 73.0 Beta 11" button from the "About" screen to update the browser. This normally works but today, it's having problems and I suspect it's due to our corporate policies being changed around.

I'm going to submit a request to our enterprise idiot to have this fixed in their whitelists, etc. but before I can do that, I need to know what kinds of permissions to request. What's responsible for the update process and what folders need to have which permissions for this to work?

Because right now, pressing the "Update to 73.0 Beta 11" button results in Firefox downloading the update but when it tries to install it, it fails with the "Update failed. Download the latest version" message in the "About" screen (when it was working last week without a single hitch).

According to my about:support details, I'm seeing the following:

- Update Folder: C:\ProgramData\Mozilla\updates\<Long String> - Application Binary: C:\Program Files\Firefox Developer Edition\firefox.exe - Profile Folder: C:\Users\<my username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<string>.dev-edition-default - Antivirus, Antispyware, and Firewall are all governed by McAfee Endpoint Security (which hasn't been an issue in the past).

I suspect that all of this is due to our enterprise guys modifying the permissions that our "elevated permissions" has... So once I have a better understanding of what things need which permissions, I'll be able to request that the elevated permissions be modified accordingly.

Any insight into this would be appreciated. It's a shame we don't have logs that clearly explain what folders or files lack whatever permissions to better understand bottlenecks like this. Maybe we do have that and I'm just not aware of it?

Due to runing Windows 7 and Microsoft no longer supporting this, I purchased a new Laptop, this came with windows 10 s installed, although I can switch to Windows 10, apparently it is not recommended and switching back would be impossible, but with Windows 10 s installed, you can not load Firefox or bookmarks, as Firefox has not been approved by Windows. If anyone can give any information or advice, it would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I'm finally figuring out that every time I do an update to Firefox, my FVD Speeddial Extension gets deleted. I didn't relate the two until now. I have been re-creating the tabs every time, but I had SO many this time that I'm crushed. I will be backing them up before updating next time, but can I recover them this time? Is there a fix for this? The EverSync backup does not have my latest version, I already checked.

New update has completely ruined my browsing. Completely changed everything and removed all my saved data, a lot of links to websites, saved passwords and everything else just gone after an update I didn’t accept or get asked for. How the hell do I get my old information back. I don’t even know if my account was through this accounts email or not. It’s really pissed me off

Its size is 177kb so its not a shortcut. Its in the first folder of FirefoxPortable yet there's a folder called App which holds both the 32 and 64 bit versions. When I used this FirefoxPortable.exe it opened the 32 bit version even though I have a 64 bit system. Shouldn't it have defaulted to the 64 bit version?
