Edited to correct some history -- so the followng transcript may be a bit out of synch -- I will state my current question below.

Two things happened at the same time -- I uninstalled Adobe Flash, and a Windows Update ran. I didn't notice the Windows update, so I blamed the wrong thing, the Flash uninstall. It was WIndows.

The Windows update caused all my bookmarks and history (and most cookies) to disappear. I'm on Firefox 68.10.0esr

I found my Profiles at C:\Users\[me]\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles but I don't understand what's in there enough to fish the bookmarks out, and I don't see anything that looks like "15 backups" promised by the Mozilla help pages.

Where are my Bookmark backups?

Using Firefox 68.12.0ESR. I know 78 is available, I just haven't had the time to test it yet. I delete cookies when I exit Firefox. I want to keep some for sites that I trust, such as this site. I've added exceptions to Allow these trusted sites as documented on a thread somewhere else, but it doesn't work. All cookies are deleted.

Is it possible to keep cookies only for a select group of sites. eg. support.mozilla.com, tomshardware.com, mydigitallife.net, speedtest.net and so on.

Thank you.

In Firefox for Android, there are certain news websites (local/TV type) that will automatically download a pdf file when a news article is opened. The actual content (usually a supporting government document related to the article) is irrelevant. How do I block automatic background downloads from happening? I did not trigger a download by tapping a direct link to the pdf. I did not want to download a pdf file. The page did it on its own by page scripts.

To make it very clear, here is what happens:

Tap link to Article A. Article A opens. Notice on the bottom of the page stating that Pdf B downloaded. Hit refresh on Article A. Notice that Pdf B (1) downloaded. Hit backspace. Tap link to Article A. Notice that Pdf B (2) downloaded. Hit backspace. Tap link to Article A but in private browsing. Notice that Pdf B (3) downloaded.

I'm on Mac. When I open a PDF in Firefox I get a print button and a download button. The download button does not offer a Save As option. It simply uses the name used in the browser - often this is a number or day or some other appellation that is less useful than allowing me to rename the PDF myself. Chrome offer to rename the file before saving but I hate Chrome.

Maybe I'm overlooking something?

I've set my default home screen as about:home which I assume is default by default. I was wishing for a darker colorscheme/custom colorscheme! Because during day time, I tend to the use light a.k.a. the default colorscheme, however, at night, the light colorscheme literally puts strain in my eyes, and Im pretty sure any nightowls could hands down agree with that. Now, I've tried an extension called Dark background white text extension and it puts a darker color on my home screen, which is amazing, however during a search, the background unexpectedly changes to bright color. Also, the menus and the settings tab could also use a darker coloescheme! I've tried firefox nightly on my android, and liked it because of its darker colorscheme, but the basic Firefox that I'm using now, feels more comfortable (: If there's any way to implement dark mode on the app that'd be dope! Aside from that, keep up the good work!

I am facing the problem to open the sites. When I used the network, it show the following error:

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.google.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Please let me know your suggestion and comments.

I've seen it on multiple sites, so it might be a browser issue. Here is what happens:

-I tap on link A. -Browser opens link B instead.

It is random, like 5% of all Fark.com taps and 10% of all Reddit.com taps. But the website registers the tap to have occurred at a different spot on a page/screen other than the actual spot on my screen where I tap, always on a lower part of the screen. I keep my screen clean, so it can't be that. I have not experienced this with my previous phone, which also used Firefox for Android (installed August 2019, never updated). The version I am using now was installed on my new phone (installed December 2020, never updated). So what is going on? Is it my phone? Is it the browser? Is it these script-heavy websites?

Tonight I noticed something really weird when I tried to reply to a comment on Youtube. Initially, I tried to reply from the bell button in the notifications and soon I realized that the Spacebar was not working. I thought it might be stuck, but it was not, since it was working fine in both the address bar and the search bar. Asynchronous keys function was disabled. Then, I went to the video and tried to reply from there. Guess what! The video was being resized using the shortcuts depending on what I was typing! For example "t" changes between normal and theater mode and "i" makes it picture-in-picture. What is going on? I am sure no key is locked, i even restarted my pc and the same thing kept happening. Then, I turned it off and on and the problem was persisting. Everything works fine on other applications, just YT seems broken for some reason. I tried to type on YouTube on two other browsers and everything worked fine. I don't think it has anything to do with the windows update, since it only happens on firefox, which I don't intend to change. Is there any setting to lock/toggle the Youtube shortcuts on and off? Sorry for the length of my description and thanks a lot in advance!

hello, i have a Raspberry Pi 4 with 4GB and Raspberry Pi OS installed. (2020-05-27-raspios-buster-armhf.zip)

when i use the stock Firefox ESR (installed via sudo apt install firefox-esr) and watch videos (e.g. on Youtube, Vimeo, ...), Firefox does crash some times. according about:crashes, i already have submitted about 60 crash reports.

but watching the reports one thing is missing. when i open firefox from the console i can see some output, that is not appearing in the reports.

... firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 3366 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Failed to open curl lib from binary, use libcurl.so instead Firefox ESR crashes when playing videos on Raspberry Pi OS (Debian)

during watching videos in firefox there is more different output to see that seems to be harmless. but always and only this line is printed to console, just befor Firefox crashes: firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. so i assume this is the main reason, why Firefox crashes on my system.

any idea how i can get these issue fixed? at the moment when i want to watch videos reliable i am be forces to use the external VLC Player by copy the url to VLC - at least for Youtube videos. but i want to watch videos from other web pages as well and i prefer to watch videos in firefox directly.
