Hi there. I am on MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6

I updated firefox (now on 115.6.0esr) and a new firefox profile was created.

The extensions/add-ons that I had installed were lost, along with the data in them. I could get the extensions back by copying the extensions folders (see image) from the old profile into the new one. But the data within them was lost.

For two of the extensions (feedbro and Sync-tabs-groups) I really really would like to get the data back.

Feedbro is an RSS reader. In the newly installed firefox it is empty, that is: I lost all my subscriptions (which were many). Sync Tab groups is of course, a tab grouping tool. and it was key to my workflow. Now there are no groups! Unfortunately my newest backup is three months old and I would like to know if there is another option to restore my groups to a newer version.

Would anybody know where in the old firefox profile this information could be found? or maybe you have other ideas?

I am not a developer/programmer or anything like that so I hope there is a solution that doesn't require being a professional in the computer world ;)

I hope you can help me! Thanks a lot!

I'm at my wits end. This issue started yesterday morning, and is still persisting, and I'm not quite sure what to do at this point other than use Chrome for One Singular Website and nothing else.

Currently, the website does the following:

  1. I open a new tab on this website.
  2. It asks me to log in.
  3. I select "Log in with Google".
  4. Firefox asks me "Prevent this site from opening a pop-up window?" and includes a link to the Google login doohickey.
  5. I tap "ALLOW" which opens the Google login doohickey in a new tab, where I sign in with my Google account.
  6. It goes back to the original tab, not having logged me in.

Previously, it would not give me a message about the pop-up, and would work fine. Presumably, asking this "Are you sure?" causes something to break with this one website's sign-in.

I have tried with Enhanced Tracking Protection set to Standard (default), Strict, and Custom, disabling all security features and throwing caution to the wind. None of these have fixed it.

I've tried going to about:config, since that was mentioned in a similar support post on here. It just leads me back to the tab I already have open, seemingly not doing Anything.

I've looked through every tab in settings, including Site permissions, and there is No Menu Option at all for pop-ups.

This was a very recent change, and only started giving me problems in February.

I can't download data from websites . It says I need Java script. Your support site is of no help at all. I've had to switch over to Chrome in order to download websites or there data. I no longer can use Firefox until issue is resolved. Due to the fact that you have no Customer support that isn't AI u have lost a customer.

I want to see all web pages in desktop view, without having to change the setting for each page I go to. This is an option in other popular browsers. Why not this one?

And please don't tell me why mobile view is better or why I don't really need the feature I'm asking for. I know what I want. And I know exactly why I want it. And I know I'm not the only one who wants it. in July 2021 someone asked for the same thing and Paul replied, "This is something that we are currently working on and hope to include in a future update very soon (it is currently in our Nightly version while it is being tested)." A year and a half later, it's still not available, including (as far as I can see) in the Nightly version. Yet in both instances of this feature being requested, the topic is marked "Solved" and archived. I guess the "solution" is to ignore what users want and force us to use the product in the way you think we should. Very Apple/Google of you!

Between this, no ability to export bookmarks from mobile, and very limited extension support, I'm finding myself ready to give a very bad rating in the play store and switch to another browser.

I've been trying to install .xpi files for Firefox on Android 12 with little success. Every file manager I've tried doesn't give me the option to open .xpi files with Firefox and my device isn't rooted so I can't access the full file system.

Are there any articles/suggestions? I've always wanted extensions on mobile but never been able to install.
