Setting up a new Win10 machine, and trying to copy Firefox profile from old Win7 machine. First, I located the profile(s) on the old machine at:

   C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\2m1b67pe.<username>

Next, I copied (via network share) the file '2m1b67pe.<username>' to the new machine, at

  C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles 
  C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

Next, I opened 'run' and executed 'firefox -p'.

When it opened, it only listed the default profiles, 'default' and 'default-release'.

So how do I get it to recognize the profile I copied?

When using Firefox, seemingly randomly the web browser will detect that the control button is pressed on the keyboard. There is nothing around the keyboard that has fallen on the control button, nor are sticky keys enabled in Windows 10. There been a few times now where I have been sitting back using the mouse only and Firefox to text at the control button is pressed and starts to zoom in or out because of that. The only way that I can stop it from happening is to click outside of Firefox on a different application and then go back. To attempt to fix this I've tried the following:

  1. restart firefox
  2. clear the cache, both manually and with ccleaner
  3. restarted windows
  4. checked for an update of firefox (I am at the latest version currently)
  5. diabled sticky keys in windows 10 completely
  6. tried a different keyboard

None of the above fixes have solved the problem that I am encountering. This issue does not happen in Google Chrome or any other application that I use it is specific to only Firefox. I looked for similar fixes before posting on here, and found two. One individual said that they fix this by changing their Wi-Fi adapter. I had tried to enable and disable this which had no effect. The second fix they said that they tried to restart the computer, which I have done no less than five times now in order try to solve is extremely irritating and functionality killing issue. Thanks guys.

Apparently I created created a Mozilla Support using my personal email address as some point in time (probably a long time ago). To clarify, it's not the email attached to this account. I had to create this as a temp account due to the issues with my primary account.

Best I can piece it together, I then later created an account for "Firefox Sync" under a different email address, then changed my Firefox Sync account email to my previous email address. Here's the chronology:

2015? Created Mozilla Support account with personal_email@outlook.com 2016? Created Firefox Sync account with work_email@mywork.com 2020? Firefox Sync, Mozilla Support all merge into "Firefox Account" 2021: Before leaving my employer, I switch my "Firefox Account" email from work_email@mywork.com => personal_email@outlook.com. Firefox Account doesn't complain, all goes well and personal email works fine as my primary Firefox Account identity. 2021: I attempt to log into Mozilla Support using my newly merged "Firefox Account" and receive the following red toast error messages: Error 1: "The email used with this Firefox Account is already linked to another profile" Error 2: "This account is not active. Please contact an administrator if you believe this is an error"

Hopefully that all makes sense, any ideas who to fix this? Assuming it's impossible to log in with my old/original Mozilla Support account, so I appear to be at an impasse.

I have a strange white bar that appears above the Firefox window at all times, but it's only visible on one of my other monitors, which is positioned above the monitor Firefox is on. I've tried starting firefox with all my extensions and themes disabled, and all that did was make the bar black instead of white.

This lead me to believe it was the Title bar. However, that's currently disabled. When I enable the title bar, the white bar disappears, but then I'm left with the title bar (which I do not want).

Is there a way I can have the Title bar disabled and not have this bar appear?

Worth noting I'm using the Lepton UI mod (which doesn't seem to be responsible for this) and DisplayFusion (which I thought would have been responsible for this, however I cannot be sure). Running Win 10.

Okay, this has been happening for months now. My site has been intermittently slow on one of my office computers. Thought is was a host issue so fought with them for weeks on trying new setting on the server but they could never see the issue on their end. Main problem is in the admin area of my shopping cart (CS-cart) being super slow but would also occasionally appear on the front end. Sometimes it may only happen for a few minutes, other times would happen all day (or now all week). Then office computer number 2 started having problems with my site. It was so bad (like took minutes to even pull up my site) that I had to install Chrome so orders could be printed. Been running it for a few weeks now without issue but just tried FF again and the problem still persists. I have tried clearing the cache/history on both computers and even on computer 2 completely uninstalled without storing data but still have the issue. What is more frustrating is it happens only occasionally on one computer, pretty consistent on the other and computer number 3 on the same network has no problems. Was even thinking it may be Cloudflare (browser console listings) so disabled using it but that just seemed to have fixed the issue on one computer but not the other. But everything is so random I really don't know where the problem is. All I know is using another browser for a few weeks now has fixed the issue on both computers. I should note that I am on my site constantly so I may see a few hundred pages a week (history was a 6300 on one computer when I cleared it) Anyone have any suggestions?

For my system, I went to Settings and scrolled all the way to the bottom to Network Settings and clicked Settings. This opened a Connection Settings window and the first section is titled Configure Proxy Access to the Internet. My installation of FF had four proxy options to choose from and mine was set to Use System Proxy Setting. I decided to check "Auto-detect proxy settings for this network" and I clicked OK at the bottom and closed the Settings tab. FF took off like a rocket! After months of using Chrome because of the extreme slowness FF had, I can now continue on with FF and zip around the internet at warp speed. I am very happy!!

In the attached image, the code is indented with 4 spaces, but it displays as if it's 2 spaces because the spaces are thinner than the other characters. In the second image, I've highlighted a single space, which is half the width of the character above it. I also downloaded the latest nightly and this still happens with it.

Github's current `font-family` rule: `ui-monospace,SFMono-Regular,SF Mono,Menlo,Consolas,Liberation Mono,monospace`

In devtools, firefox underlines `Liberation Mono` as the active font-family, but I uninstalled that from my system and it switched to `monospace` (Noto Sans Mono) with the same issue. If I change it to remove the `Consolas,Liberation Mono,` it gets fixed, but when `Liberation Mono` is installed+highlighted and I only remove `Consolas,` it doesn't work til I remove `Liberation Mono,` as well. Note that both `Consolas` and `Liberation Mono` resolve to "Noto Sans Mono" "Regular" in fc-match, which is my default monospace font.

Hi. Since a couple of days I cannot sign-in in my amazon profile from Firefox: after I put my email, the page stay "thinking" and waving indefinitely the point up in the label (see pic). It never happened before. I've tried with other browsers and everything is alright, so it'd be for Firefox. I've tried all the basic standard solutions (to restart the system, refresh Firefox, update the system and antivirus etc.). I use windows 10 (64bits) with avast in a laptop ASUS, RAM 4MB, celeron 3. Please, check it: Firefox is my default browser. Thank you very much. Regards, Mikel.

A week ago I started using a primary password for FF. I learned it by heart, also copied it to my iPhone in a safe notation (I have access to the notation using my finger print). It worked just fine for the first days. Today I tried to use the primary password again, in order to enter a website, but somehow FF denies me entrance, again and again. No spelling issues or missing characters, because I copy the primary password from my iPhone notation and paste it into the primary password field on my Mac. In FF Lockwise (on my iPhone) I can also still see my primary FF password, which is exactly the same. Typing it down character by character doesn’t solve the problem, nor does restarting FF. Caps lock is off. No issues with my keyboard. In my privacy and security setting I cannot to stop FF from asking my primary password, because (of course also there) it won’t recognize the primary password I enter...

There is no one who knows about my primary password nor has anyone access to my computer or iPhone. So there is no way I could explain somebody to have been able to change my primary password. Could anybody please explain to me what might be going on? Did other people experience the same issue? What steps should I take to try to solve it?

And I surely wish not to need to reset my primary password, because I will lose all my saved passwords from FF... Happily I still have access to FF Lockwise on my iPhone (using my finger print). So I could still copy each password and save it somewhere else. But that would mean quite a lot of work. Besides of that I don’t trust it to work better next time I set up a primary FF password…

I hope I explained my problem well enough. Thanks in advance for trying to help me out!

When I start up firefox I usually select restore previous session to get back all my tabs, but sometimes I click on the wrong button and accidentally close out firefox. When I open firefox back up and try to restore the previous session, it restores to the session where I misclicked and only brings up the homepage. Is there a way to restore to the session before that with all my tabs, without having to go into browser history and bringing them up one by one manually?

Some of the answers to similar questions involve going to "%appdata%\mozilla\firefox\profiles\sessionstore-backups", but all of the files in that folder are either from several months ago or from after I messed up and lost my session.

Why did Mozilla change the "Clear Recent History" dialogue window so that it NO LONGER has the "hotspot" that the cursor automatically goes to to make it quicker and easier to "Clear All History" after SETTING the choices to "Everything" and choose all of the options? The cursor USED TO be able to be set to go to the "OK" button automatically, now it does not. Why and why not? AND the dialogue window has been ENLARGED and SET in a CENTERED LOCATION onscreen. Why? Is it POSSIBLE to correct this oversight and allow for the cursor to go to the "OK" button automatically again? It seems that Windows 10 has presented additional challenges in maintaining a pleasant experience for MOST services/apps, and I hate that MS does that at every "update".

If there is NO way to correct/re-establish these functions to Firefox, Thank You for your time and efforts to keep Mozilla users/friends safe and happy, and stay safe and well,
