I've had this happen twice now. Getting a new PC and wanting to transfer my bookmarks from old to new. I have had bookmarks on the old computer arranged in order of priority from left to right on my bookmarks bar. Did the export to create a HTML file and saved it so that I could import to new Firefox browser on new computer. So far so good. However, when setting up new browser and importing my bookmarks from the HTML file, it just creates a single folder on the new browser's bookmarks bar, instead of spreading my bookmarks out on the new bookmarks bar as it should. The bookmarks in the imported folder are still in the order I want, but to get them as individual items on the bookmarks bar, it seems I'd have to drag and drop them one by one to the new bookmarks bar. Solution please?

When trying to install addons from Firefox addons management menu (tab 'about:addons'), they not downloads. and Firefox says 'addon can not be loaded because connection problem'.

When trying open 'https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/' have 'PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR'.

I am thinking the reason of this errors is blocking requests to 'addons.mozilla.org' by my internet provider (Beeline Kazakhstan). Because when I trying to connet to 'addons.mozilla.org' using VPN or proxy I have no problems described above.

I have no idea why this internet provider or goverment needs to block host 'addons.mozilla.org' (they love to block various website just fo fun). May you help me bypass this problem? May be you know the way how to install VPN addon offline for Mozilla Firefox whithout acces to addons webpage.

Sorry for my English and thank you for reading (:

I uninstalled Libre Office and it apparently uninstalled the VCRUNTIME140_1.dll file s part of its uninstall process. From this point Firefox would open but would not connect to the Internet, either by clicking one of the links in the toolbar or typing the address directly. I have tried all the solutions I can find on the support pages, ranging from attempting to copy the file from another location to re-installing Visual C++ from the Microsoft website, both the 64 bit and the x86 versions. Having found and installed the latest version of Visual C++ I now get the error message "The procedure entry point _CxxFramehandler4 could not be located in the dynamic link library C\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSVCP140.dll" at the edn of the installation process, and of course Firefox has not installed. Any suggestions for a way forward?

Since the update to FF 98.0 I cannot click on a .zip file & have it open to Windows File Explorer. It only allows me to download & save the .zip file and then extract the files from there. I have to click on dozens of these files per day for my job & would rather not have to save each .zip file & then extract the file contents. In Settings > Applications, .zip files are not on the list of file types or applications. Is there a way to add them to the list? Is there some other work-around? Thank you!

Not sure this is the right 'topic' but I just migrated all my info from my old MacBook Air to my new one, and Firefox is acting weird: I can go to various common websites, like salon and npr, but not, for example, slate.com.

Also, more importantly: 1. I can't even get to gmail. When I type 'gmail.com' in the brower, firefox does nothing. Even if I try a serach of 'gmail sign in' that will come up, but the link won't work?

2. Also, like, twitter won't work. Facebook I can get to my page but can click on anything, except if I try to message someone, it takes me to a blank page?

My Chrome browser is working, and my TOR browser as well.

Firefox is my prefered browser. What's going on? What should I do?

Thanks in advance!

My old computer crashed but I have access to the entire hard drive on my new laptop. I'd like to restore Firefox on the new laptop exactly as it was on the old laptop (bookmarks, tabs, etc.). All of the help articles talk about restoring from a backup, but I never made a backup since I obviously didn't know my computer was going to crash. Which files do I need to access from old hard drive and move to my new hard drive so that everything looks the same as before? Any help would be appreciated.

Late last week, something changed in Firefox browser. I used to download csv files and Firefox would open them with the option to save as an excel file. Now it does not. I have to save it as csv then convert it to excel. It also doesn't seem to save my settings on the website I'm downloading from - I always have to manipulate the settings before downloading. It is a huge headache and I have resorted to using Chrome instead.

Hello, I always download mp3 files inside webs using "Save as" and ".mp3" method. Sometimes I had to explicitly save filename with ".mp3" extension to force audio download. However trying to download an audio no matter what format I write in file always download only webpage as .html never as .mp3. Looking at sourcecode (image attached) I found a detail containing "chrome" in webpage. Later, I tried downloading with Chromium at it worked properly. Does anyone know how to download this from Firefox?

Thanks in advance for your help. P.D. I am using Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0.

I am setting up Firefox on a new PC... I am running the latest version of Firefox (I think) version 84.0. I exported my logins on my old PC to a .csv file with no problem. Now, I'm trying get Firefox to load that file. I've seen help responses that talk about getting to a submenu in the Login/Password section, but those responses indicate that one of the choices should be "Import from a file". But I'm not seeing that choice. I see "Import from another browser" in that menu, but I don't see "Import from a file"... any suggestions?

Does anybody know where the ID: 308046B0AF4A39CB comes from?

If you use a Windows 10 1909 64 Bit and you can find this in the installs.ini and in the profiles.ini of users, if you have a Firefox ESR 64 Bit in Version 78.10.0 installed. The INI-Files looks like this:

Installs.ini: [308046B0AF4A39CB] Default=Profiles/8U9skky2.default-esr Locked=1

Profiles.ini: [Install308046B0AF4A39CB] Default=Profiles/8U9skky2.default-esr Locked=1

[Profile0] Name=default-esr IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/8U9skky2.default-esr

[General] StartWithLastProfile=0 Version=2

This ID can vary if you have a 32 bit ESR-installation as well and the only place I could find it is in the registry

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\Firefox\TaskBarIDs] C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox=308046B0AF4A39CB

But also here it differs sometimes.

I need to know where the ID comes from and if I can rely that if this ID is used, I will always address the Firefox ESR 64 Bit no matter which version.

Dear community, for some days my Firefox 80 on Windows 10 has shown the message "your system administrator has deactivated updates", when I look under "Help" -> "about Firefox". This is strange, because the admin is me myself, and I didn´t change anything in Firefox or in the Win 10 registry. Has anyone of you had this experience, and how can I possibly fix it?

Firefox auto update has stopped working for me. Neither of the settings, see attached screenshot do anything, all I get is a popup saying a new version of firefox is available with a link to https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/ I recently did a clean install of Win 10 pro x64 and this problem may have started then. I have another PC on the same network where auto download of updates are still working. Hopefully someone can point me to a way to get this working again.
