Windows 10 - 22 H2 - All updates applied AMD Ryzen 7950x + DDR5 64GB RAM + 3090 RTX GPU + Plenty of Disk Space Firefox

Hi,

To get myself off MS Edge (as its Chromium based), I've come back to FF. But after I tried installing firefox standard and even the Extended Support Release I can not run it for the first time - I get this error

Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.

I've followed the advice in the help pages, but it hasnt fixed the issue

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-remove-switch-firefox-profiles#w_start-the-profile-manager-when-firefox-is-closed

The same happens when I run

firefox -p

The firefox App Data folder contains no profile file at all....

C:\Users\marcu\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox

Just

2022-11-14 12:49 PM <DIR> Crash Reports 2022-11-14 12:46 PM <DIR> Pending Pings

Inside crash reports is an empty events folder, and two crash report instance files (once for each attempt to start up FF) For example

InstallTime20221104133228

The above crash file conatins

1668458789

I've tried uininstalling and wiping all files, and I wanted to try an old versions BUT the link on the page is dead

https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/ - Gives me 404

Do I have some service not running that this relies on ?

Backup & restore information in Firefox profiles

Hi there!

I'm attempting to migrate my Firefox (106.0.3) profile from the Linux Mint V20.3 on one SSD to a new installation of Linux Mint V21 on a separate SSD. I'm using the information supplied on this page:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles

Step 4, under Backing up your profile says: Right-click on your profile folder (e.g. xxxxxxxx.default), and select Copy.

This folder, qspfoqtl.default, contains 1 file, named times.json, the contents of which are:

{ "created": 1618792039414, "firstUse": null }

Clearly, not my Firefox profile.

There is, however, a folder named nnob5aww.default-release that contains a bunch of directories and files (505.4MB) with names like bookmarkbackups, browser-extension-data... storage, weave.

Is this documentation incorrect as of this release of Firefox? And, should I be using the nnob5aww.default-release folder as the profile? I'm a little confused. (Most often, I'm a lot confused.) Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

- Ralph

Hello. I use developer's version of ff for a few weeks (currently on 107.0b2). I recently decided to switch back to stable version 106. However, when I run it it says

``` Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox. ```

So, how do I move from developer's version back to stable without losing anything?

(OS: debian 11, if it matters)

I am using pihole and i've learned that firefox ignores it.

Supposedly, because it has DNS OVER HTTPS enabled by default.

So i disabled it, and it still doesn't work ( ignores DNS settings and loads websites that are blacklisted in my pihole - only firefox does this, chrome and edge dont have this problem )

I've set it to my pihole server - and it still works.

I've set it to CUSTOM and put in a 0.0.0.0 as IP and IT STILL WORKS

how???

i am just trying to use pihole but i can't comprehend why would a browser ignore all these settings ...

how do i make it work?

thanks.

Hi. I'm trying to download an installer .msi file from a valid link. If I do this in Chrome it simply pops it into the Downloads folder as it should. In Firefox, it downloads and then displays as a text page of garbage. It seems the file is wrongly defined as text/plain on the server rather than as a binary.

However, I've looked into my Firefox settings to see if I can define the handling behaviour of that file type. I can't! Amazingly to me, the .msi file type can not be added to the list manually. There is no "Add File Type" functionality in there. It seems as though I have to handle the file in Firefox for it to see that that type exists and then it will let me add it to the Downloads/Applications area of settings.

I can right click on the link and choose Save File As which gets round it, but then I still cannot see the .msi file type to add it to the Applications list. Can anyone tell me what I am missing here?
