Hello, I am in a dreadful situation.

I needed to format my PC, changing OS from Windows 10 to Windows 11. I have backed up my Mozilla profile just in case, along with other things.

Long story short - my backup failed. I thought that shouldn't be that much of a problem, as there's Firefox Sync. After getting the new OS, logging in to Firefox Accounts, syncing... nothing. It synced with the current state (so brand new browser) and didn't import anything. Bookmarks or history, which are very important to me. Currently, I have no way of retrieving them.

Is there a way to get Firefox Sync to Sync with what was saved some time ago? Literally anything before February 1st will work for me. I am very dependent on my browsers, Chrome synced perfectly fine, Firefox didn't.

I cannot find any relevant information on this topic, is there any chance of getting help here?

Former versions of Firefox browser for windows would treat closing the firefox windows as exiting the app. However in the current version, closing the windows does not appear to perform the actions (such as clear cookies, site data, and history) that should occur when closing the browser. For example, I closed the browser window (X at top right of window) with a gmail account logged in and displaying the inbox. When I reopened Firefox, it did not go to my start url (gmail login), instead, it returned to my email inbox, and the email was active - logged in. This seems like a security problem to me. My settings specify: Delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed Clear history when Firefox closes I have no saved passwords in Firefox

Is this a new "feature?" The add-ons that I need to interact with frequently have vanished from my toolbar and can't be re-added; they don't appear as options in Customize.

I've DONE the "delete extensions.*" thing and the problem still exists. I even tried creating a new profile, but the icons didn't appear as I installed the extensions. It's as though Firefox has unilaterally decided to remove this feature and didn't warn users about it.

I still HAVE the add-ons and can access them from the add-ons list, but that's inconvenient since there are only a few that I really need to interact with; the rest can stay out of sight and quietly do their thing.

Is this a bug that crept into the latest update, or is it something that you're wishing on users? I've loved Firefox for years for its privacy focus, flexibility and customizability; please don't take an ease-of-use feature away from us.

I can not remove the extension!

I have noticed for some time now that I have an extension in my Firefox extensions that has no name and keeps installing itself, even when I try to uninstall it through the Firefox folder. The extension causes that in my search suggestions when I enter something always other websites come to the surface, or the actually suggested by firefox sites slide down. Some yahoo and amazon sites come up on my search results.

So Amazon audible popped up a firefox session with a talking book after I shutdown. So firefox saved this session to restore next time.

I shut down firefox while I:

1. I understand the file sessionstore.jsonlz4 in session store is a backup of the old tabs. So I saved it

2. I then copied it to the sessionstore folder under the profile. (I only have one folder under the profile folder so it must be the correct target). As a precaution, I also copied the file and renamed it previous.jsonlz4 and recovery.jsonlz4

But I cant get firefox to load it. Firefox stubbornly loads the tabs i just used and then creates new files called previous.jsonlz4 and recovery.jsonlz4 which overwrites my backed up files

So my question is how do I make firefox use the backup file I saved?

TIA/gary

I´m running PortableThunderbird 102.6.1 (64-bit) and PortableFirefox 109.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows10.

For quite a long time, the following issue exists; it´s driving me mad so that today I´m making an effort to ask for help:

When I click a link in a Thunderbird-message, that link will be opened in an unknown Firefox installation; i.e. a Firefox that does not look like "my" Firefox (with all the bookmarks and set-ups); sometimes it also first installs updates before opening a link, which suggests it is in fact "another" installation. That behavior appears no matter clicking a link in TBird directly or right-clicking it and selecting "open link in browser".

Where/how can I force TBird to use "my" Ffox installation, and how can I find & delete that "other" Ffox installation ?

Thank you & best regards

I use a search bar in Firefox's toolbar for searching and my defauly search engine is Google. When I type on this, sometimes I get search suggestions that I never searched for (and I am not using a shared computer). For example when I type "how do you" in the bar, I get suggestions like "how do you ne demek" ("what does how do you do mean" in Turkish) as in the attached picture. I have never searched for these queries, yet they appear with a history icon next to them, implying I have searched for them. Why is this happening?

I've tried using the same bar with something other than Google as the active search engine (Mozilla Support for example), and when I type "how do you", none of these false suggestions appear; and only what I have actually searched for in the past appears. Furthermore, when I type in "ne demek" like in the suggestion, I *also* don't get the same suggestion.

So there's something wrong with how Firefox relays data from Google's suggestions. In fact, I use neither Firefox nor Google in Turkish and yet keep getting geolocation-matched suggestions in Turkish like this, sometimes with and sometimes without the history icon; which did not use to happen a few years ago. Is this a personal problem I can fix somehow, or is this a general bug?

I honestly don't now which topic this belongs in. Today I have had Google asking to sign in when I go to a login page of some websites. I am not logged into Google on this computer. I do not have Chrome installed.

Windows10, Firefox browser, Qwant search engine. Autofill options are off. I deleted Google from the search engine options. I have cleared all history several times today and still had this happen.

Ii know some websites offer logging in with another account such a Google, FaceBook, Twitter, etc. but I don't recall seeing this pop-up before, and I didn't look at it, really. I just closed it because it was in my way. I probably wouldn't have thought anything of it except I was setting up an account and they sent me an email telling me I asked to change my email address and would no longer be able to log in with that email address.

I've seen a few other complaints about Google asking to sign into websites on Firefox and they seem ridiculous, but it appears something may be going on. Does anybody know why this would be happening? Is there anything I should look at in about:config?

Hello,

I got remove the menu button that is to the right of the whole (hamburger type), the forward and backward buttons that are to the left of the whole (which are the arrows to the right and to the left), the detention (which is the cross), etc. I did this with commands in userChrome.css file

But what I can't hide is the item where the url's are placed (search box). I just need to hide the search box. I wrote " #nav-bar { visibility: collapse !important ; } " in userChrome.css , and then all navigation bar is hidden but don't get windows of pop-up that I need them to appear.

The version of Firefox that I have is 108.0.1 (64 bits).
