Hi, I have a disaster situation. I backed up my profile and then I wiped my computer running Ubuntu 20.04. I replaced it with Ubuntu 24.04. Now my profile seems to not be compatible with the Firefox installation on Ubuntu 24.04.

I followed this official instructions: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles

I put my old profile in the ~/snap/firefox/common/.mozilla/firefox/ folder and I set the correct values in profiles.ini. But sadly when I start Firefox all my passwords, extensions and history are not there. I lost everything.

I'm super desperate. Please tell me I can fix this somehow. Why is the official documentation lying?

This problem is NEW ... I've been using Firefox with Bible Gateway for literally YEARS, and this problem has begun in the last two days. I tried to follow the advice under other occurrences of this problem to others, and couldn't ... I don't get into code that way!

All I know is that I can no longer simply open a tab, go to that site, and use it; once that error shows up, no navigation on the page is possible.

Idk whether this is a problem for Firefox, or for Bible Gateway. I've contacted them, too.

But ... what can I do?

Can you please assist with issues that I am experiencing with LinkedIn not loading on Firefox? I have attached four examples, and summarised following. LinkedIn is working when accessing by Edge: on the same laptop, or by another computer. A summary of the four examples follows: 1. Another user’s feed not loading, 2. Group feed not loading, 3. My profile page not loading, and 4. Group feed not loading. The only control that relatively works is regular refreshing, though this is inconsistent, and is generally ineffective e.g. my feed may only be for a couple of: minutes, or hours; despite many refreshes, instead of > six hours with confidence by scrolling. The issue has been occurring for the previous four days, and other users are apparently experiencing similar, refer following. I unsuccessfully trailed the following: 1. Various minor setting modifications according to historical posts - I cannot recall all of the specifics, 2. Clear cache etc, and DNS flush, 3. Log in/out/restart, and 4. New profile.

I speculate may be a LinkedIn "bot" control feature, and my use appears like a "bot" - though I do not use any automated features. The justification for the “bot” speculation is the new profile apparently worked, prior to commencing my normal use - opening multiple tabs with LinkedIn, though this may be a coincidence. I also speculate that if was a "bot" control feature, LinkedIn would restrict my account, though is inconsistent with using by Edge.

The following may also be coincidental, though I have observed that emails in my Outlook webmail are slow to load, and occasionally require refreshing to read etc.

Hi,

I have used Firefox for a long time. I have many bookmarks, passwords etc on Firefox on my original PC.

Sadly the hard drive on my original PC has failed. I borrowed a laptop temporarily and signed into Firefox on that. My bookmarks did not transfer across and instead I had someone elses bookmarks but I wasn't too concerned as I was only borrowing the laptop.

I now have a new PC. I have restored my files from a backup external drive and I have signed into Firefox on this PC. However, all of my tabs and bookmarks have not come across. I have pressed sync but it has brought the bookmarks over from the laptop and not the bookmarks from my original PC.

How can I sync to the original PC that has all my bookmarks etc please? Or have I lost it all forever?

Thank you.

So I was trying to test webauthn so I went to webauthn.io and then signed up with my username but firefox then tells me touch your security key to continue with webauthn.io but it works very well google chrome. and shows me a qr code and then I scan it in my phone. And after some search I think that the problem is that firefox defaults to use the security key which is a physical device but i don't want to use it I want to get the QR code. Also I tried different websites but got the same problem.

And by the way I use arch linux but I don't think that the problem is with arch as I mentioned before everything worked very well in google chrome.

Firefox, specifically the Windows version, has started generating PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR errors on https:// web sites. What I find interesting is that Firefox says the page is not secure in the address bar - even though the page is secure. Firefox on Mac and IOS do not have this issue. I'm also running Bitdefender Anti-virus with Encrypted Web scan. With that feature turned off, blocked pages seem to work. I found yesterday that logging out of Sync while Encrypted Web scan is on allowed the blocked pages to load.

I deleted Firefox and re-installed it, thinking I'd fixed the problem. No such luck. I've tried all the other fixes I can find but none of them work. This is clearly a Firefox issue and not an issue with Bit Defender since it only occurs (and has been widely reported for years) with Firefox for Windows.

On a side note, even support.mozilla.org gets blocked.

Anyone have a real fix that will work?

Hello, I have Firefox 128 installed on Window10 Pro v. 22H2 fully up to date. I have LastPass: Free Password Manager extension in my Firefox.

Up until 2 days ago I had an icon on my toolbar for the LastPass extension that I could click after opening Firefox to login to LP. It has worked fine for years. It was that way when I shut down my computer that night. The next morning when I opened FF, that icon was gone. LP still shows in my Add-ons manager as Enabled. To the best of my knowledge, nothing on my comp updated in that time period.

I tried clicking the 'Extensions' button in the FF toolbar, but all it did was to open the "Recommendations" tab of my Add-ons manager. Previously, clicking the 'Extensions' button in my toolbar would show a menu of extensions including LP. I would get an option to show an LP icon in my toolbar. That worked as recently as a few weeks ago when I wiped my hard drive and did a fresh install of Windows.

I tried removing and reinstalling the exension. It made no change. Next I fully removed Firefox with the Remove Programs option in the Windows control panel, then removed all traces of FF in my Windows user profile. Then rebooted. Then DL'ed Firefox fresh from the FF site and re-installed it. Twice. No icon shows up, and the 'Extensions' button continues to do nothing but send me to the 'Recommendations' tab of the add-ons manager.

I had a few other extensions installed as well as LP at the time this problem arose. But when I re-installed Firefox, I only installed LP and tried to get its icon showing before installing any other extensions, just to be sure there was no conflict.

Can you offer any suggestions to help?

Thank you.

I've just created a Mozilla account so that I can sync my customised about:config settings between devices but I'm struggling to get it working. For each setting I have customised that isn't on the default whitelist, I have created a new boolean setting as follows:

'services.sync.prefs.sync.xyz' where xyz is the setting I have customised.

Each of these newly created boolean settings is set to 'true'.

When I 'sign in and sync' on a new device and check about:config, the values of these custom settings is not changed from the default.

Have I missed something in my understanding of the process?

Any advice will be appreciated.
