Firefox is running very slow and when I try to refresh it as prompted, nothing changes. I'm not very technical and need clear instructions as to what to do next. Also, when I try to access LinkedIn, I can't and I don't know if that is a Firefox or linkedIn problem.

Today I upgraded my Firefox to the new version.... of course I lost all the "Theme", display style etc. etc. ... most of all I even lost the bookmarks. Now that is very inconvenient and time consuming to re do . Maybe some bookmarks needed some input which I may not have available now...

So is it possible to get those back....

Thanks Anil

THIS program needs WORK! I already added a whole paragraph describing my problem. Then per this pages clicked on the green button below. It took me to a page that said it couldn't find what I was looking for and when I clicked back, I lost ALL of what I had input before - Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. So here goes AGAIN:

I had been receiving error messages whenever I tried to load FF stating that it was already running. Jumped through all the hoops of how to fix that, including unchecking the read only in profile - BTW. After unchecking that box, clicking on apply now, and waiting for the program to stop doing whatever with the files. I clicked on OK and the properties closed. When I opened it up again - sure enough the read only box was filled in! - WTH - Then I installed the newest version (yesterday and everything worked). This AM when I went to open FF I got the same error message about it running and to close it. I am getting sick enough of this to start looking elsewhere. I have been a FF user for YEARS with NO problems. Until NOW.

Reference: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1174885 The final answer was 'roaming' which was all that ragnajoe and myself wanted to know. The other articles about profiles, backups, recovery, '2017-10-13-12-36-19-82d39f.png',etc., ASSUMEs everyone has the same knowledge background. The problem could have been answered by referring us to: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data#w_finding-your-profile-without-opening-firefox.

 Please use a more non-assuming tech editor next time.

My son installed Firefox in my computer and he input his Google account as default. He is living in another country and I have to constantly change Google to my account. I've thought that, if I reinstall it the problem is going to be solved, but unfortunately absolutely all the old setting remain, even if I let the "Restore... " box checked. Firefox knows it's been reinstalled. I cannot login on my son's account for privacy reasons, so I cannot delete it. Is there a way to reinstall Firefox from scratch?

Thanks!

I am running with ubuntu 18.04.2 I was having a problem with the snap version of firefox so I downloaded, and installed the non-snap version of firefox. Now I want to delete the snap version and use the other. My problem is that all my stuff is in the snap version. My thought is to save the profile of the snap version and then use that profile for the non snap version, delete both versions and reinstall the version I want to use. before I start, however, I thought I would ask whether that would work.

Thank you........

I just installed the latest Firefox update (67) and when the browser restarted I noticed no web pages were loading. It turned out this was because my uBlock Origin and uMatrix extensions had been completely cleared of ALL data, including their default/pre-defined rules.

All of my extensions data seems to have been cleared. The extensions are still installed, but their settings/data are completely gone.

This is EXTREMELY frustrating.

Does Firefox make backups or anything before it attempts an update? Is my extension data/settings recoverable somehow?

Come on, Mozilla, what are you doing to Firefox recently?!

Hi,

Recently an issue with links and default browser has come up in Win10. When I click a link in Tbird for instance it opens a completely new window (as opposed to a new tab as before). This window has no prefs, logins or add-on on it. It's like a clean install of the app. Am on latest version of FF Portable.

Hello, as in my title, all of my bookmarks from the last 10+ years have been deleted with this weird profiles update that happened. It told me to create a profile, I did, and then it took me to a browser that had none of my bookmarks or toolbar and had nothing in the backups at all. Am I completely screwed by the update or is there any way to restore?
