I seem to be encountering various problems since the update to 73, the main one is the profile folder, I dislike the default location so have previously just put my preferred location in appdata\roaming\mozila\profiles.ini but 73 regularly ignores this and puts a basic profile in the default location and alters profile.ini. Using the profile manager does not get any better results. I am also having problems with the home page, I have set a custom page but 73 often resets this to a blank page or sometimes the default home page. I have had to resort to a 'portable' version as 73 constantly resetting things was getting so annoying but the portable does not work well as a default browser.

After the certificates on my corporate PKI smart card were renewed, I am no longer able to login to any of the web sites that used to work before.

The error I get in Firefox is:

An error occurred during a connection to XXXXXXXX. SSL peer was unable to negotiate an acceptable set of security parameters.

Error code: SSL_ERROR_HANDSHAKE_FAILURE_ALERT

This used to work fine before the certificates on my smart card were renewed.

The DLL file that accesses my smart card is loaded and functioning properly in Firefox under Security Devices.

In Chrome, everything still works fine, only Firefox is failing.

How to convert old sessions from "sessionstore.js" to the newer "sessionstore.jsonlz4" format files

Story Time aka Scrambled mess

So, for the Longest time I've had a Bunch of old sessionstore.js backed up and since I had to reset my Windows a couple of days ago, I thought about going through them and deleting what I don't need/saving what I do need. Problem is that the most recent version of FF use sessionstore.jsonlz4. I tried as hard as I could to make the .js work, but nothing work. I tried to convert the .js to .jsonlz4, but of course that did not work either. The only thing useful I found was this Scrounger that finds the websites within the .js so you can manually save them... But that's not good enough for me. So I thought "Wait a minute... .js was used by old version of FF, then FF updated and started using .jsonlz4... but what about... everyone that was using the old version when it converted ? Wouldn't FF itself convert the .js to .jsonlz4 automatically if you upgrade from an older version ???" So I download a portable version of FF 52, open it up for the first time, set it to remember my last session, close it, copy and old sessionstore.js from my backups and paste it into the portable's profile folder and VOILA it magically worked !!! This was the first Win I've had IN A WHILE so I really needed it. Now I am still in the process of doing it but theoretically you can copy the profile from the portable to your main installation of FF. Oh and as a bonus, you can go to about:profiles, create a new profile and replace its contents with the portable one's.

My Solution

  1. Preferably download an old Portable version of Firefox (I used this site and got Version 52 but you are free to use whatever you want).
  2. Launch the portable version and navigate to the settings to select it to Remember your last session.
  3. Find the Portable's Profiles folder, not your main installation of FF.
  4. While FF is closed, Paste your old sessionstore.js file into the Portable's Profiles folder, overwriting the existing one it had. (theoretically you can also restore your sessions with your old previous.js and recovery.js/bak files by renaming them to sessionstore.js and putting them in Portable's Profiles folder.
  5. Open Portable FF and you Should see your old session. Now open the Menu Bar with Alt -> Help -> About Firefox -> Update Firefox -> Restart Firefox.
  6. I suggest Updating Portable FF multiple times until you reach the current version, but FF 55 or something should be enough but hey, there's nothing wrong with being safe.
  7. At this point you should have a FF profile with your old session in the new .jsonlz4 format. But why stop there ? Open your regular version of FF that you have installed (aka Not the Portable one) and type about:profiles in the URL bar.
  8. Select Create New Profile. Now you have 2 options: A. Copy the Profile folder from the Portable FF into normal FF's Folder for the profiles, or B. just select Finish and paste the contents of the Portable Profile's folder in the newly created profile in the normal FF. Oh and you can rename the profile too to something like "old sessions"
  9. After doing that, in about:profiles it will change the Default profile to the newly created, I suggest changing it back to the one you were using. Click Launch Profile in new browser.
  10. From there you can decide how you want to save that session. You can sign in to your FF account and sync it with your main and those tabs will be in "Synced Tabs".

.....Sorry for the mess, I am not good at explaining things and I try to be thorough.

Improve my solution

I guess you can improve whole thing by finding exactly the last version that used sessionstore.js so you only have to update Once to get the sessionstore.jsonlz4.

I am a Senior Visison Disabled Veteran. I have used various Firefox Browsers over the past few years on many different devices.

I have used the same firefox account and password and username/email during that time.

My background was in electronics, E.E., Sci, etc. When I was in the Mil-Intel-Indust complex I came to know all electronic systems starting in the 1950's where backdoored. So I have tried to be carefull when setting up and using Firefox browsers. I thought I had delebritly set it up to NOT RECORD any email, username, or password EVER ! To prevent my info from leaking out.

Today I downloaded a free copy of NordPass from their main website. Part of the set up is an option to import from other browsers, etc all emails/usernames and passwords to store them in one location under one password in NordPass.

When I seclected the "Secure Notes" for firefox I got a BIG SUPPRIZE ! There were 11 entries. Yes there was my bank account password and username my firefox account password and username my google account password and username etc and two entries I am in the proccess of trying to locate and find out who they are ! just two urls and usernames and passwords that I never did create or visit thoses urls.

I am requesting your help in deleting this info from my account and keeping all my book marks intact.

I am also interested in preventing this from ever happening again.

Any ideas ?
