Moving Multiple Firefox Profiles - Confused by Profile Names and Profiles Aren't Recognized on New Computer

I have 100s of profiles that i need to move to a new computer but the names of the profiles are not .default (see attached screenshot named "Profile names on old computer") - they appear instead to be what i named the profiles.

And when I do move them to the Profile Directory, they aren't recognized in Profile Manager, I assume because they don't end in .default (see screenshot named "Profiles on New Computer" and screenshot "New computer's Profile Manager").

But on my old Macbook, they are recognized just fine. What am I missing or doing wrong?

Thank you

I'm currently running Ubuntu 20.04 although this problem began yesterday while I used Ubuntu 18.04. Simply put, I went to sleep on February 26 and on February 27 when I tried to start up firefox I only get the crash reporter. I am able to run 78.8.0esr thankfully, however I would greatly prefer to use the latest version of the browser. I can think of nothing I did between shutting down my browser on the 26 and waking up the next morning. Firefox will not start up in safe mode. I clean install from the snap store or ubuntu repositories has done nothing.

Below is my crash ID and i've attached all the details the crash reporter gives me.

In Options, the following selection item is included under General>>>Tabs:

"When you open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately"

Although it has worked well in the past, selection of that option no longer seems to have an effect on new tab behavior. New tabs are thrust into the foreground regardless of whether or not the option is selected in Options.

Is this a flaw in the latest update to Firefox? Will it be corrected soon?

Hello, i was unable to access Google and YouTube due to "Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER", i could still access Gmail and drive but those two would not budge, i was still able to access them trough Chrome tough.

I did not have any anti-virus installed, did install malwarebytes for a moment, did a scan and uninstalled it, did not do anything. Turned off windows defender and nothing happened. I did have glasswire installed so uninstalled that as well and nothing happened.

After researching a bit more i found a solution where a guy imported the required certificate from another browser so i did the same. The certificate from both these websites was "DigiCert Global Root G1A" and it was present in Chrome but it was missing in Firefox(In case its relevant), and afterward i got access to both these websites however YouTube stopped working properly. The sidebar on the main site does not show any content( https://prnt.sc/109dtjv ), the comment section wont load and also when i click on my profile it wont load as well ( https://prnt.sc/109dux1 ). As far as i am aware those are the only issues i am facing, the videos load with no problem. Everything is working properly on Chrome so i will assume its not YouTube. I tried starting in incognito mode and safe mode, the issue is still there. So what im currently assuming is that maybe i should not have imported a certificate from another browser but i could be wrong so any help would be appreciated.


TL:DR: Imported certificate from another browser to fix "Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER", now YouTube wont load the sidebar, comment section and myprofile dropdown menu.

I've just bought a new Mac Book Pro (M1 Chipset) Osx Big Sur 11.0.1. I've installed TB 78.7.1. I'm getting an error:

Error Creating Account

"Incoming server Alread Exists"

So far I've added my personal gmail account using the default settings:

Imap.gmail.co Port 993 SSL/TLS OAuth2

smtp.gmail.com port 465 SSL/TLS OAuth2

I have two other gmail hosted accounts (these both have their own domain extenstion rather than @gmail.com). When I try to add these using the standard settings I get the error. I'm running TB 78.8.0 on anothe older machine and don't have any issues with the same settings. I've searched the internet and support forums but can't find a solution. I've been using TB for years and really don't want to have to stop, especially as I do donate from time to time. Hopefully someone can help as it's really frustrating! Thanks!

I have a Yahoo Plus account which downloads by POP to Thunderbird. Since 23 February, the emails have not been downloading and I cannot send messages from Thunderbird either. When I try to download my messages I get this: "Sending of password for user sihambortcosh did not succeed. Mail server plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com responded: Server error - Please try again later."

Yahoo say that it is due to a change in their authentication. I am using Thunderbird version 78. The Thunderbird support page about this says this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/thunderbird-and-yahoo. However, when I come to change the authentication method, the OAuth2 option is available only for the incoming server, but it is not available as setting for the outgoing smtp server. When I change to OAuth2 for the incoming server only (OAUth2 on the smtp server not being available) I get a message that the authentication method has not worked.

Please help!

I have all the correct POP3 and SMTP settings, all the correct passwords and we have tried this multiple times, carefully entering everything so as to avoid typos, but each time, it says that it finds the account, but then gives an error message that it can't find the server. Our ISP will not help with Thunderbird at all.

Good day! Dear Sirs, How I can stop downloading of the file from the opened page? I have started to download the pdf file from opened page of a site. I have confirmed the download by Mozilla Firefox. The downloading has begun and has reached the 99% of the volume according to the announcement of my phone and the push-notification. I use Android. But after that the volume of downloading remains on the same level of 99% of the file. The push-notification/ announcement of my android phone shows that downloading continues and doesn't finish! What does it mean? What is the problem? And what can I do or should I do in order to stop the process of downloading? Please, help me! Thanks in advance! Kindest regards! Alexander
