Usually, when you close Mozilla Firefox or shut down your computer, you can restore the before closed bookmarks while you start again Mozilla Firefox. In my case, Mozilla Firefox automatically updated itself and I could not open again my bookmarks (the history was gone...). I had lots of pages that I still wanted to read and am looking for a way to find them back...

Добрый день. Необходима помочь в решении вопроса о переносе правил фильтрации сообщений с одного ПК на другой. Проблема вся в том, что правила создавались для учетной записи, а не для локальных папок. И следовательно по пути %appdata%\Thunderbird\Profiles\ в файле msgFilterRules.dat нет созданных правил. И при его копировании на другой ПК правила не переносятся... Прикрепил два скриншота с правилами на учетке и на локальных папках. Можно ли как-то перенести правила фильтрации с учетки?

Places.sqlite and bookmarks.html suddenly doubled in size

I use firefox bookmarks to store my biomedical research data which over the last 12 years has grown to a large size with places.sqlite around 60 Mb and bookmarks.html about 75 Mb.

Sometime ago the bookmarks.html file suddenly almost doubled in size to some 130 Mb (I automatically back up/export my bookmarks as a bookmarks.html file) and places.sqlite to some 70 Mb. Unfortunately I only discovered the issue sometime after it happened.

According to Places Maintenance, which I run relatively frequently, the bookmarks data base comprises:

Table moz_places has 77666 records Table moz_bookmarks has 230886 records

The bloated bookmarks.html file is needlessly taking up a lot of backup space . I can only assume that somehow one of the very large files was inadvertently copied into some other folder. Given the vast number of folders/subfolders it is a virtually impossible task to open each one to find where such a large file has been put to cause such bloat. Unfortunately when I open the bookmarks.html file there is no folder structure visible so it is not possible to sort folders by size which would greatly help to find the offending folder.

Although I am quite useful at finding my way around browser technology I have no sqlite database skill. I have looked at the places.sqlite using DB Bowser for Sqlite and SqliteManager extension in the hope that I could figure out whether it is possible to identify folders and hopefully sort them by size to find where the misplaced large folder is located. But no luck it is all greek to me.

I would be most grateful if anyone can offer suggestions/guidance on any possible way to identify folders and to sort them by size from places.sqlite or any other way (I have considered exporting the bookmarks from places.sqlite to xlsl into Excel but it does not seem to offer any way to search for/sort folders by size.

I am on Win10 Pro.

What is the nature of the "Disconnect" agency whose solicitation appears as a tab page from Firefox requesting donations? Please explain who is "Disconnect." From the web address it is not clear what the connection is with Mozilla. What is the difference between donating via the "Disconnect" and donating via the route provided under the "about Firefox" menu item? Presumably "Disconnect" is servicing Mozilla, yet I am wishing that relationship and security to be clarified more convincingly before contributing by that route. Thanks for responses.

Hi, For a couple weeks now, whenever Firefox is open, I can't control other software with the keyboard media keys. I had fixed the problem before by setting the flag media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled to false, which worked for a while. But now it doesn't. I also tried setting dom.media.mediasession.enabled to false, and all 4 combinatios of the 2 flags. Firefox keeps capturing media keys. Tried disabling every addon shortcut too, as some other webpage recommended.

Note that it happens even if there's nothing in firefox, ie 1 tab on the "home" screen. Close Firefox and Spotify starts responding. Open Firefox and it stops working.

I've been slowly migrating away from Chrome to Firefox on advice from friends. All of my bookmarks from Chrome were able to be imported, but not logins and websites. I have followed all of the steps regarding privacy settings and importing such info, including making sure Chrome is closed before importing, but to no avail. In addition, when I try to manually save logins/passwords in Firefox, the dialogue box asking if I want to save this information appears and I select yes. However, when I check my saved logins/passwords, there are zero.

All of my permissions are set to allow Firefox to remember this information, yet it still doesn't after multiple attempts on my part and multiple messages from FF saying that it has successfully saved said info.

In addition, when trying to import logins/passwords from Chrome, the dialogue box says it was successful, but another yellow dialogue box appears telling me to login with my Primary Password, yet does nothing when I click on it except take me to the Logins and Passwords page.

Is there a step I'm missing in all of this that would make the browser tell me all of this is working when in fact it isn't?

Hey, First of all let me introduce to myself. I was a alltime Chrome user in android then I felt it was getting slower by the day both mobile and desktop then i start trying Several browsers like Brave,Opera,duckduckgo. While using brave I feel same like chrome with no difference. I dont had any privacy concerns so I left it. Then i start using Opera browser. I really like the features of opera Vpn,AdsBlocker, The only issue I felt in opera is constantly crashing while browsing and randomly getting Black or while bar (depends on which theme i am on) on the top of the screen or at the bottom and the browing was ridiculous for me so I left.

Then I start using Firefox and I really like the style and it feels premium quality staff. But I miss some features of Opera which makes my browsing a little disturbing or time consuming. suppose, Refresh: while while browing if i want to refresh the page I have to go to three dot icon and then press refresh button to refresh the page. Why can't I just simply scroll down to refresh or simply put a button on the bottom???

Page switch buttons: 2nd, There is no left right page switching buttons on the bottom why? sometime when my hands get wet my back button does not work then i face some problem. lets think my hands are dry and i can press back button but if i want to go back to previous visited page what will i do??

VPN '''There is No VPN, No Vpn which makes me think why i am here?''' I think those are the preety basic feature everybody wants. thanks..

I upgraded to TBird 78 a few days back (as of today, it has already morphed into 78.9.1), and for the past few days I am unable to connect to my provider's POP email server via my email client, although can see my email on the webmail interface. I have already consulted the discussion here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/thunderbird-78-faq#w_after-upgrading-to-thunderbird-78-i-cannot-receive-or-send-email-messages Yesterday I called my provider, who told me they don't use TLS at all, but handle security in-house in some other way. A techie and I tried various configurations (also changing to IMAP) in an attempt to get by whatever is blocking my access, but nothing worked. He said that the proper remedy for this kind of problem is for TBird to issue what he called a "patch" that would fix the issue, but that we had to wait for TBird to figure this out and do it. Today I tried the remedy of reverting to lower TLS security anyway, but this didn't help either. The only other options I can think of are (1) reinstalling an older version of TBird and refusing any further updates, and (2) switching to some other email client. I don't like either option very much. Does anyone have any suggestions what else I might do? HWA
