Now on new PC, win 11, had win 10 on prior. FF installed easily, everything migrated, signed in etc. But--Firefox menu bar is no longer displaying icons for a number of things, notably for home screen (house icon returning me to home page) and for my password manager, Sticky Password (reinstalled here), as well as several others of lesser importance. I suspect there's a single on/off toggle for these somewhere but I can't find it. Thank you for your assistance.

For context, I accidentally made my root D: folder into the downloads folder and during this time I was still able to download using firefox. But when I finally changed the folder to my default one, firefox stopped being able to download anything larger than 1gb files. I can still download small images but anything larger than that I can't download. Else, it would only just show "Failed" in the downloads bar.

I've tried: 1. Changing the download location

>Also tried reindicating my download location

2. Turned off dangerous downloads 3. Putting an exception to the sites I try download from 4. Clearing the downloads 5. Tried troubleshooting mode 6. Restarting my computer 7. Restarting Firefox

I can't download on firefox but the same files I can download on Chrome.

Hello

I have been using firefox sync for a long time to migrate between PC to PC

My firefox sync profile is full of old stuff and I would like to clean up my settings by wiping out my firefox sync settings and starting fresh.

However, before doing that I wish to export all my data/settings/password/cookies/bookmarks and everything, so files on my computer.

Files that I can read in notepad and inspect. See which settings I have in there and decide which settings I want to put back in my new installation.

I have found a locked question about this on this forum

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1065938

It mentions two plugins for this purpose

FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension)

OPIE

Unfortunately and worryingly, they have been removed from the firefox addon store

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/febe/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/opie/

I found a wikipedia article about FEBE

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefox_Environment_Backup_Extension a very old link to download a probably broken version https://febe.en.softonic.com/

and a reddit thread about FEBE which states that there is no equivalent and that it is not possible to export firefox settings anymore

https://old.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/t2zmjb/febe_alternatives/

as for OPIE, I am unable to find explanation of what it was, where it went or who used it

I know that my profile is stored in

C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\4vdt083m.default-release

However the files and structure in that folder are inscrutable

I would like to have control over the settings of my browser, what they are, to save them and modify them on my own terms.

I would like to export about:config completely to a regular plain text file, edit them and import them back in.

Firefox regularly forces me to restart the browser because of background updates being executed. When loading a new page I get: "Restart to Keep Using Firefox - An update to Firefox started in the background...". (see image below) Background updates of Firefox are disabled in the browsers preferences. (see image below) After restarting the browser, I actually noted, that the version is still the same as before (Noticed this the first time today, when taking the screenshot). (see image below) Anyway, it's a really annoying fact which made me and some colleagues almost leaf Firefox, even though I have been forever.

What is causing this issue and how can I stop it?

System:

  • Windows 10
  • Firefox 122.0.1 (and prior versions)
  • Reproducible on other machines
  • Machines are not managed remotely

The wizard finishes saying that it successfully imported saved logins and passwords, but nothing shows up in the password manager. I am running Windows 10 64bit and Firefox is up to date. Anybody have any suggestions?

I've read all the articles here about importing my passwords and history, but the Import Wizard is ONLY giving me the option to import my bookmarks. Even if I can't get the browsing history I need to be able to migrate my (extensive) password list.

I've exported my Safari passwords as a .csv file, but there doesn't seem to be an option to import a .csv file.

The page here regarding it says the feature is 'disabled by default' but does not say it's unavailable and I can't find clear instructions for how to activate the feature so that I can import my passwords. Can anybody help?

I've also tried using a linux laptop, and i can't login with it either, but it works fine on android and windows. If i try it too many times my account locks, don't know what to do

to upgrade my firefox browser from 32 bit to 64 bit, I was following the mozilla instructions to download the 64 bit version, but then uninstall the 32 bit version before installing the 64 bit version. However, using the microsoft store to obtain the 64 bit version, it didn't just download it, it installed the 64 bit version. Now I have both. Should I merely remove 32 bit, and my profile file will be accessed to complete the set up of the 64 bit version? Don't want to loose bookmarks, passwords, etc. by removing 32 bit version.

This is the second time I've tried this, got sent back to sign in when I went to see what version of Firefox I'm using! I can't see the text of my mail in gmail inbox webpage using Firefox. I can see the whole message completely when I use the gmail inbox webpage using Edge. I have used gmail inbox with Firefox for years and this has only occurred today. I'm using windows 11, up to date and my Firefox is 97.0.1 (if I remember correctly, I'm not going to check again and have to start this process all over!) If I can't read my mail then is it Edge for me in the future?

I have for many years tried to have excel automatically open downloaded .csv files as I do this every day many times. Until today I have not been able to understand why, despite having asked for Firefox to automatically open .csv files with Excel, and therefore finding "Microsoft Excel Comma Separated Values File" associated to "Use Excel (Default)" in the application association list in the General settings, Firefox continues to ask what to do with the .csv file type when downloading.

What I have discovered is that when using a search for associations in the General tab, csv gives no results! However searching for cel does for some reason list the "Microsoft Excel Comma Separated Values File".

It seems to me that the file type three letter code for the Microsoft excel csv file is wrongly stated in the association list. Is my assumption right? If so how can I correct this please?

For information I have had this problem on more than one computer! I have just set this up on a brand new laptop when discovering this.

Images attached... Thank you.

I have a question about the Firefox browser that came installed by default with my enterprise set-up. I usually browse on Chrome, but my user also has a 'Mozilla Firefox' browser installed. When I opened it today, I found that it is somewhat out of date. Aside from buggy tab formatting, the biggest indication is an invalid certificate warning for many sites including Wikipedia and the Mozilla support website.

As shown in the attached screenshots, Firefox version 34.0.5 is running, and it considers itself up to date. I subsequently installed the default version of Firefox for Windows 10 (apparently 97.0), but it did not update the previous Firefox browser, which is still accessible under 'Mozilla Firefox,' whereas I am writing this ticket in the current browser, called 'Firefox.'

I think this question should be very low priority, but I am wondering why the browser thinks it is up to date. According to the current documentation, the only internal path to updates seems to be a 'Help' > 'About Firefox' > (Firefox initiates automatic update) sequence, but that isn't working for the older browser version. It feels like updating to the newest version should be possible from within the outdated Firefox, rather than doing what I did and installing another instance on my machine.
