Managing profiles: My Firefox since rel 89.0 crashes several times A DAY. The last time it crashed 6 times in a row then WIPED out my copy and gave me a new copy, BLANK of everything. I am no rookie to Firefox as my first version was 1.0 when I converted from Netscape Navigator long ago. The rub is PROFILES. I have too many to manage now and need to get rid of some but Moz:lla in their infinite wisdom does not put a date, what was the LAST one.... and one has to search to find the LAST profile that has your latest modification, data, etc. I am fearsome in deleting any as they do not seem to be in any order and I get a SERVE warning when trying to delete. Since the new releases crashes all the time, to do critical work I have to resort to UGH, "EDGE' until Moz://a gets a solid release and hopefully STOP TRYING TO COPY EDGE AND CHROME.

Any advise will be appreciated. [except advise to use EDGE or CHROME].

On one computer I have deleted everything from Firefox including the folders within Apps Roaming except for one folder. There in one folder "41A66E7EE5E1" within Profiles which I cannot delete. It holds the files prefs.js and sessionCheckpoints.json which were created at 20/02/2021 and I cannot delete those.

My new installation is dated 24/07/2021.

There is nothing in the properties of those two files to suggest an issue. I do find however that when I seek to change the Property/Security to Administrator (I should be able to do that) I receive a dialog box that "the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable".

Please advise on how I address this.

When I launch Firefox, it refuses to open My Yahoo, which is the home page I have been using for many years. My.yahoo.com is still entered in Settings as my home page. Even if I type the URL into a new tab, it will not load. I have now switched to Edge as my default browser and it is working just fine. I would like to go back to Firefox, but there is no way I can do that if it wont even let my use my preferred home page. This is the second time I have presented this problem. So far - no response. I can be reached at ... @yahoo.com.

My switch from the release version to ESR seemed to go well, but my history and many of my settings and data, including my pinned tabs and extensive notes used by add-ons, were gone. I managed to reconstruct most of them, but was distressed to find that when Fx updated my ESR version those settings were again gone.

I have again restored most of the lost settings (including the one not to automatically update!) but I know I can't defer Fx updates indefinitely, and I also expect I may want to return at some point to the release version--and I desperately don't want to have to reconstruct my settings any more (or at least more than one last time). I'm not concerned about the loss of my history

Since I'm prepared to note all my settings first, starting fresh seems like a viable solution. I just need to know how (unless you can suggest a better option). I'd be happy with either the release or ESR channel.

I haven't been able to update Firefox (Mac, desktop) since version 82 because all updates use a font I can't read. Websites are displayed correctly, but bookmarks, most Firefox preferences (including about:config), tab headings and search imputs are as shown in the screenshots.

Today I downloaded version 90 and it's still happening. Please see the screenshots of the Firefox welcome screen, and the font selections in the preferences. The version for the screenshots is a new, clean download using default settings, with no addons or bookmarks.

I don't know if the font is a real language or not.

Last time Firefox updated, I managed to find information online about moving the website tabs so they were below the bookmarks instead of at the top of the screen. It was a huge pain-in-the-butt to do.

After a recent re-install, the tabs have moved themselves back to the top of the screen and nothing I do seems to be able to move them back below the bookmarks.

Is there a way I can move the tabs that doesn't involve spending hours hunting through posts on the web, changing hidden Firefox settings, and recoding .css files?

If not, why do you not give the option to move the tabs wherever the user wants? Especially when it makes far more sense to have the website tabs directly above the website being viewed, at least in my opinion?

I'm currently using Firefox 85.0.2 (64-bit).

Does anyone know any way to force Firefux [Ver 89.0.2 64bit] to stop the repetitious and constantly annoying pop-up that flashes on open, restart, or randomly appears, reminding me to once again update the apparently flawed software. I just updated yesterday!!!! Can I not trust that the programmers know what they're doing and that the system can actually work as expected without the intrusive proof that they screwed up again?! This is the worst business decision to make these things interfere with my workload. Every firefuxn day there's a new update alert!!! It makes me not trust this browser...
