Firefox Update destroyed all of my Bookmarks, Windows, etc. Years of work! What can I do?

Firefox had been telling me I needed to do an update for a couple of weeks. So like a fool, today of all days, I said yes. But I did look at what the update was going to do to make my final decision. It looked good so I said OK.

What it actually did was download the complete app and ask if I wanted to keep the old version as well. So I kept the older version (which had been up to date to this point) and opened the new one. It appeared to be totally "plain vanilla" with none of my bookmarks or windows, etc. I looked for my Bookmarks and all it had was some of my bookmarks from the Bookmarks Bar, none of my tons of years of important and properly organized bookmark folders.

I immediately quit, rebooted my computer, and went back to my older app - remember the one I did say to keep - and I got exactly the same behavior from it. I then completely trashed the "new" version and rebooted my computer again . . . then tried the older version . . . but that time things got worse. I did not even get the old Bookmarks Menu bar.

I then rebooted and went to my backup, brought back the copy from my last backup a month ago, and tried to run it. This time I got a message saying that opening the older version could destroy all my settings . . . but I did not care as I would rather go back a month ago than be where I am now! However, it would not allow me to open the older version because of the possibility of destroying . . . nothing!

HOW do I at least get back to my older version that would have probably 90% of my older Bookmarks/Folders and settings? I have that older copy and a full backup of my HD . . . but I do not know what, other than the Foxfire Application I need to look for and replace on my system. I assume there are some files stored in System folders that I need to replace, but I could not find them as I can't find anything in the Library or System directories that are identifiable as Firefox files.

All help appreciated . . . guess there will be no Cyber Monday shopping for me!

Thanks!

Firefox cannot find profile after copying from other computer

I followed the instructions on the support pages to transfer my profiles from an old W7 laptop to a new W10 one. After the copying of the profiles to the correct locations neither Firefox nor Thunderbird would start complaining that they could not find the profiles.

What I did (same thing for Thunderbird) 1. Opened Firefox troubleshooting on the old W7 laptop, opened the profile folder. 2. Closed Firefox 3. moved two levels up 4. copied the Profiles folder to a usb drive.

On new W 10 laptop 1. Opened Firefox troubleshooting on new W10 laptop, opened the profile folder. 2. Closed Firefox 3. moved two levels up 4. renamed the existing Profiles folder to Profiles OLD 5. copied the Profiles folder from the usb to the same correct location on the new laptop

When I tried opening Firefox on the new laptop it would not open complaining that it could not find the profile. Firefox had opened correctly previously.

Then when I renamed the moved Profiles folder to Profiles NEW and renamed Profiles OLD to Profiles, Firefox opened normally on the new laptop.

Identical procedure and result with the Thunderbird profile transfer.

What should I do?

Thanks.

The FTP site I have used to download the full versions of Firefox no longer has anything except a directory for VerX with all the individual files. I can, oddly enough, find a full version by adding "uk".

Example: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/82.0.3/win64/uk/ works fine. Gives me the .exe file.

If I change the uk to us, it won't work. If I stop after win64, all I get are the multiple individual directories, not the full version.

I do NOT want to use the stub. It doesn't let me do what I want to do.

Bonjour,

Lorsque je télécharge des fichiers que Firefox ne reconnaît pas, une fenêtre pop-up s'affiche pour me demander ce que Firefox doit faire avec le fichier. Je souhaiterais enregistrer ma réponse pour ne pas avoir cette fenêtre à chaque téléchargement.

(J'ai donc voulu suivre les instructions données sur cette page : https://support.mozilla.org/fr/kb/changer-ce-que-fait-firefox-lorsque-vous-cliquez-telechargez-fichier )

Cependant, l'option "toujours effectuer cette action pour ce type de fichier" n'apparaît pas chez moi. De plus je n'arrive pas à ajouter moi-même une ligne dans le tableau 'Applications' dans Options > Général. Y a-t-il un autre moyen d'enregistrer la comportement de Firefox avec un certain type de fichier ?

I am using Firefox Nightly. It receives updates every day, but most of the time I cannot restart Firefox as soon as update is available. I want to delay it till next natural restart (ex.: night), however, Firefox shows notification about the available update. It's a minor issue, but seeing notification every day and having it to close every time gets annoying very quickly. I want to disable update notification but keep automatic updates. How can I do this?
