Firefox code ought to be able to import data from an old Seamonkey or Firefox profile as well as data from other browsers such as Microsoft products. My Seamonkey profile isn't even old. I'm using the version compiled about a year ago because the two more recent ones crashed occasionally.

There presently doesn't seem to be any code in Firefox to import data. Supposedly there used to be. It's still needed or very desirable.

I don't have a question because it's pretty clearly not there. It's something for you to fix.

I've been using Firefox forever (decades) as the browser associated with Outlook and never had a problem. Now Outlook has forced me to use Microsoft Edge as the browser--which I hate. My current Firefox is 102.12. Microsoft Support claims I can fix this but the supposed command is not there in my version of Outlook 365. I read a similar post from 2019 (when I was having no problems) that indicated it is a Microsoft problem that it doesn't intend to fix. Has anything new happened that could help me restore Firefox to this role? Thanks.

Funcions `loadOneTab` and `loadURI` in 2023 in Firefox Experimental API?

I am using the Experimental API in my private Firefox extension.

So far, I've been using Firefox 102 ESR, but I'm planning to switch to Firefox ESR 115. There's already a Firefox 115 Beta available, so I've started testing it with my private extension.

So far, I've been using internal Firefox functions like `loadOneTab` and `loadURI` and it worked very well.

I used the `loadOneTab` function like this:

``` const placesURL = "chrome://browser/content/places/places.xhtml"; window.gBrowser.loadOneTab( placesURL, { inBackground: false, allowThirdPartyFixup : true, relatedToCurrent : true, triggeringPrincipal : services.scriptSecurityManager.getSystemPrincipal() } ); ```

But the `loadOneTab` function no longer exists at all in Firefox's internal API. What should I replace it with?

I found the function `_createTab`:

``` // window.gBrowser._createTab({ uriString: placesURL }); ```

But the `_createTab` function returns an error:

``` Uncaught Error: UserInteraction with id "browser.tabs.opening" was not initialized ```

...I guess this is by security to make this function called only by user action? And I call this function inside `async function`.

Is it somehow possible to open a new tab from the Experimental API in Firefox 115 beta? I need this very badly. Really very much.

---

I used the `loadURI` function like this:

``` window.gBrowser.selectedBrowser.loadURI(linkGo, {triggeringPrincipal: Services.scriptSecurityManager.getSystemPrincipal()}); ```

The `loadURI` function appears to still be available in Firefox's internal API, but returns an error like this:

``` TypeError: 'uri' member of CancelContentJSOptions is not an object. RemoteWebNavigation.sys.mjs:28:41 ```

How to overcome this error?

Whatsappweb - chat - how download names and phones

Hello everyone! I use Firefox 102.12.0esr (64 bit) on my Macbook and I would like to download the names and phones of the chats I’ve joined on Whatsapp.

It can be done by hand and by taking screenshots (of course), but if there are dozens of contacts it is a problem. :(

On the net I've found that with a Chrome extension you can do it (I assume) easily, but -if possible- I'd like to avoid Chrome which I really don't like. ... but if there are no alternatives .... I’ll make a virtue of necessity!

So I ask if anyone knows and has already done this with Firefox. I specify that I haven't found anything suitable in the list of FF extensions (I use an almost "clean" FF, ie I only have three or four add-ons).

Off-thread comment Despite assuming that FF is still one of the most widespread and popular browsers - updates of even the most important extensions and add-ons always lag behind FF updates or even this items aren’t updated at all. I fear that this aspect will lead to a progressive shift from FF to Chrome and obviously this is a pity (even if I'm not a compulsive user of extensions!!). Don’t you agree? (Sorry for this complaint!)

Looking forward to your suggestions about my request. Thank you very much
