I just installed "Firefox Quantum" version 67.0.1, and none of my bookmarks were copied from my previous version. So I looked at help files on how to import my old bookmarks from my last version of Firefox, and they're all about either importing from Chrome, or Safari, etc, or else they're about sync'ing my mobile devices to my laptop. I don't need any of that information. Why didn't Firefox keep my old bookmarks, the way it always has whenever I have upgraded to a new version? What did it do to my old bookmarks?

I'm kind of upset, because I have a lot of recent bookmarks that I will have lost (since last backup). I sure hope Mozilla didn't just delete all that.

Oh, and I do have a Firefox account, and I've logged in, but still can't find anything that will tell me how to get my bookmarks back.

Thanks.

For the last week or so items in History are showing the Facebook icon, not their own, appropriate ones. This strikes me as creepy, wondering if Facebook is trying to meddle with browsing here. I've installed the Facebook Container add-on, but this has not had any effect. I have tried to upload a screenshot of this, but it just hangs.

As of this morning, I am unable to access many of the sites I visit regularly and am now unable to conduct aspects of my business. The error is always that the connection timed out, the website isn't available and the tls handshake simply stops.

I can't even reach https://input.mozilla.org/en-US/feedback/firefox/67.0/ because of this handshake. That's kind of ridiculous, isn't it?

The issue doesn't affect all websites, but unfortunately it's the ones I need. I've created a new profile, refreshed Firefox, reset my modem and router. My ISP says the connection is fine on their end.

Firefox is the only browser I have access to on my desktop. Google Chrome, which I don't want to use, works fine on my Android phone.

When I change preferences like on screen in one browser I don't see shield near url in address bar, but in another browser with THIS preferences I do see shield with both two checkboxes on or off. (Checkboxes for "Trackers" and "Cookies")

Which behavior is "default" or "normal" or "correct" for current Firefox version?

default checkbox's values were changing in different releases

After a crash, I'm having a strange problem where firefox (nightly 69.0a1+20190604+hdfc513e7e141 , Arch Linux AUR package, under GNOME Wayland) only actually loads/renders web pages if run with the command-line switch

`--profile ~/.mozila/firefox/xxxxxxxx`

where `xxxxxxxx` is the path to the default profile. If I omit the command-line switch, firefox seems to run fine except that no connections are ever successfully made and all pages remain blanck.

I imagine there is a corrupted file somewhere but i don't understand why the default profile would work fine when it is explicitly invoked with the `--profile` switch, but not otherwise.

Thank yo uas always!

Firefox won't keep me signed in to anything, even though I've selected to remain signed in via websites' preferences and it has always kept me signed in before. Every time I relaunch Firefox, I have to sign in to my two homepages (Yahoo and Fark), even though the passwords are stored in Firefox, and they auto-fill in the appropriate slots. This happens with all other pages I've tried, even the Firefox help forum itself.

I've reset Firefox, I've cleared all my passwords (and re-entered a few of them) to make sure they are correct, and still no luck. I removed u-Block origins, thinking maybe it was causing it, but it's still happening even without u-Block installed.

Firefox Monitor: support for email addresses with arbitrary plus sign tags

Whenever i create an account anywhere, i use an email address with a tag unique to the service appended to the end. For instance, the email address I used here is firstname.lastname+mozillasupport@gmail.com. I do this to be able to automatically put incoming emails in various buckets, and also to be able to mute emails from specific senders or see which services sell my address on to spam spewers.

In firefox monitor, this creates a problem, because as far as Firefox is concerned I use hundreds of different email addresses, whereas in reality they are all the same address just with different tags.

So I would be massively helped by the following feature: When you add an email address to Firefox Monitor, there is a checkbox that says "Include address variations". When adding the address firstname.lastname@gmail.com with the checkbox checked, any variation of that email address should also be considered added, e.g. firstname.lastname+dropbox@gmail.com firstname.lastname+netflix@gmail.com firstname.lastname+hbo@gmail.com

Bonus feature: Support for service specific quirks - the checkbox would also be aware of quirks various email providers have. E.g. for gmail addresses the dots are optional. So when adding the address firstname.lastname@gmail.com with the aforementioned checkbox checked, the address would also match firstnamelastname@gmail.com.

Hi,

Straightforward issue I just noticed.

For some reason I cannot delete some of my bookmarks. Whenever through bookmark icon/manager. With right click context menu delete, delete keyboard button, or "bookmark remove" from shortcut.. etc.

It just doesn't function. I can move those "frozen" bookmarks around in folders and such, but I simply cannot delete them.

My other computer uses Win7 and every time Firefox updates, I loose LastPass and AdBlock+. I have to open 'add-ons', click 'disable', then click 'enable' and close and reopen Firefox. today I open Firefox, it tells me all about the wonderfulness of version 67, but the add-ons are marked as 'Legacy'. When I click to get more info, it shows nothing and I have to click 'extensions' again. If I click 'disable' and close the browser, the next time it shows a button to 'enable'. But clicking and restarting the browser does no good. I tried to get help, but without LastPass, which Mozilla recommends, I can't even ask the questions.

I used the import from another browser tool to import my passwords from Chrome into FF. It looks to have grabbed all of the passwords, but every single username and password is corrupted. It looks to be encrypted data. Is this import function currently broken? I'm using FF 67.0.1 (64-bit) and Chrome 75.0.3770.80 (Official Build) (64-bit) on Win10. I also have FF Lockwise installed and I made sure that all Chrome processes were stopped. Any info would help, thanks!

Upon upgrading Firefox to v67.0.1 (Arch Linux Package), I get borders around all web pages I open. This does not happen on the "Firefox Home" page. The border is purple because I am in "Private Browsing Mode". I don't know what's causing this, I've looked around a bit, but have neither found a solution nor a post describing a similar problem. This does not happen when using Firefox v66.0.5. Till now, I've stayed on v66.0.5.

Thanks in advance.

Others have asked similar questions but for different platforms and none of the suggestions have either worked, been appropriate for the setup or understood by me (a non programmer!). I am operating High Sierra 10.13.6 and after migrating to Firefox 67 have lost everything to do with previous setup.

When trying to set a previous profile as default I get the error message about launching an older version of Firefox and gives me a quit or new profile option only which is not satisfactory.

Is there not a simple solution to this unasked for level of complication that allows me to restore my existing bookmarks and passwords without delving deep into processes I don't understand and inputting lots of lines of code? It feels like I've taken my car in to fill up the tank and been told to rebuild the engine to get my car going again.

Im inputting this using Chrome because almost every attempt to use firefox causes a crash

All help gratefully received.

My Firefox updated to 67.0.1 and now when I type anything into the search bar the results then show up in the address bar. I do not want this. I used to have all the websites that I normally visit typed in and basically saved to the address bar so I could use it quickly to pull up my favorite sites. When did someone come up with this stupid idea to do this. I wish that companies like you would stop changing things thinking that is what people want. I want my Firefox to be the way it always was. If there is no way to change this then I am going to quit using Firefox and I will try something else. PLEASE FIX
