Ok, thanks, finally human help! I just had to change my pc and make a fresh install of the operating system. I used Linux mint on the last pc, and have Linux MX 18.3 on the new one, currently in use. I took the precaution of copying my Firefox and Thunderbird folders from the old hard drive, as I have several years worth of bookmarks organised in to folders, irreplaceable. This was the way I had preserved that information in previous changes, and swapping the old folders with those in a new install worked fine. But now i find the new version has changed and the files differ and cannot therefore be swapped. I don't really want to get into blaming or how disappointed and annoyed I am, as this won't be the fault of the person helping, and that is appreciated. But back ups need to be backwards compatible or there is no point? So, not sure which version I had, but will have been a couple of years old with updates. In my 'etc' folder there was a Firefox folder, and in that I have a folder marked pref. In that folder there is a file named apturl.js and I have saved those folders. With my new install there is not even a folder for 'firefox' in my 'etc' folder. How do I proceed to restore my bookmarks? If I need to install and older Firefox version I will do so. Many thanks, Tony

I have a Firefox account but now it is requiring me to sync to other devices in order to update Firefox. I have zero Other Devices, no smartphone or personal computer, just my office computer on campus. Does having no additional devices mean that I will never be able to Update Firefox anymore? When I try to install Update it says it needs to install Helper but when I enter Password it says NO, except that that IS the Password that signs me into my Firefox account, but that account sign-in then wants me to Sync Other Devices which I can't do since I have no other device. So it's kind of a hopeless circle...

Last school year I could Update no problem, but then in March our buildings were all closed for Covid and only now am I getting around to trying to Update again.

(I'm a Senior Citizen visually impaired musical accompanist for Theatre and Dance, not computer-oriented in general, just when I'm on campus)

And although I posted this Q at 1:09 pm Eastern Time here where I live, it says I posted it at 10:09 am? Why would it show Pacific Time?

I set up Firefox sync two days ago. Opened my Iphone today & it went to sync screen and asked to sync with my Mac laptop computer. I proceeded, assuming it was part of set up, although I had done that step two day ago. After my phone read the QR code, my computer screen refreshed and said, essentially, "you are now syncing with Oxnard, Kalifornia" etc. I am located in the Oxnard area, but was alarmed at the misspelling of California with a "K". Is this a hack and should I remove sync? Typo? Anyone else have this issue? Would greatly appreciate any advice you have - thanks!

Greetings!

I have a little problem with a SSL certificate with the same site in different langagues with the same versions of Firefox.

I installed a certificate from RapidSSL on a website and with the english client of Firefox 67.0.4, I got no SSL error at all. On the other hand, if I use the french client of Firefox 67.0.4 for the same website, I get the 'SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER' error code.

After more digging, I found out that in the english client, it seems that RapidSSL is automatically registered as a valid cert publisher and not in the french one...

Is that a known problem?

Thanks a lot and best regards

I have the most current Firefox installed - as of this writing, Firefox Quantum 67.0.4.

Since the last update, Thunderbird email links open a new Firefox window instead of opening in the existing window I have open. Previously, Thunderbird links opened in existing window. It almost acts like I have two iterations of Firefox installed, but I checked that.

I noticed that when I am using Dreamweaver to design a web page, it now also opens a new window.

I've tried various things to fix this. Yes, Firefox is set to default.

Very annoying.

i uninstalled GOGGLE tonight because, I HATE GOOGLE for several reasons. BUT since the uninstall, they are blocking not sites but CONTENT. I do a search and the content is on lots of URLS. BUT GOOGLE INTERCEPTS THE SITE, HIJACKS Firefox AND SAYS: GOOGLE 404. That’s an error. The requested URL [inappropriate link] was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

i KNOW its a lie as the URL/SITE comes up, I SEE THE CONTENT then GOOGLE "KNOCKS IT DOWN AND SAYS: GOOGLE 404. That’s an error. The requested URL [inappropriate link] was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

BUT IT DID IN FACT "FIND" IT, I SAW IT FOR A BRIEF MOMENT.

Hi all,

I realise I can disable the Automatically Redirecting/Refreshing globally, which is the default setting that I wish to have. However I have a number of sites that I use on an almost daily use where I want to have exceptions and allow redirecting/refreshing.

Is it possible to have per site exceptions? Even if through an addon?

Thanks

You used to be able to add a new folder by picking "new folder" and then add the name of the folder. Now when I want a new folder, that choice is not there. When I want to move a new folder, all I had to do was hit move to and a menu would appear of previous folders. And you had a chance to save a new folder if that was your wish, or scroll down and find a folder is already there. Now I do not have that choice to start a new folder.

My Windows 10 taskbar is set to auto-hide. For some reason, with Firefox on my laptop (but not on my desktop computer), Firefox will not allow the taskbar to pop up. I have searched for multiple solutions, and attempted:

- Restarting with add-ons disabled. - Closing the browser and then renaming xulstore.json before restarting.

The only solution that has worked temporarily is going into full-screen mode then exiting it, but again, it is only temporary, as either minimizing the window or leaving maximized mode will cause the problem to reoccur when the window is maximized again.

Running FF 67.0.3 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. When I go to certain web pages (Amazon, My Music) I get an intrusive pop-up saying my version of FF is no longer supported and I should upgrade. The pop-up cannot be dismissed, and the only option is 'update now'. (And FWIW, the Amazon page behind it is "out of focus" ) The 'update now' takes me to a page telling me to open the 'help - about' and it will automatically start downloading. Only it doesn't start downloading . And other pages say FF is supposed to update automatically, without any intervention on my part. So I'm stuck.
