Hello

I have been using firefox sync for a long time to migrate between PC to PC

My firefox sync profile is full of old stuff and I would like to clean up my settings by wiping out my firefox sync settings and starting fresh.

However, before doing that I wish to export all my data/settings/password/cookies/bookmarks and everything, so files on my computer.

Files that I can read in notepad and inspect. See which settings I have in there and decide which settings I want to put back in my new installation.

I have found a locked question about this on this forum

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1065938

It mentions two plugins for this purpose

FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension)

OPIE

Unfortunately and worryingly, they have been removed from the firefox addon store

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/febe/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/opie/

I found a wikipedia article about FEBE

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefox_Environment_Backup_Extension a very old link to download a probably broken version https://febe.en.softonic.com/

and a reddit thread about FEBE which states that there is no equivalent and that it is not possible to export firefox settings anymore

https://old.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/t2zmjb/febe_alternatives/

as for OPIE, I am unable to find explanation of what it was, where it went or who used it

I know that my profile is stored in

C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\4vdt083m.default-release

However the files and structure in that folder are inscrutable

I would like to have control over the settings of my browser, what they are, to save them and modify them on my own terms.

I would like to export about:config completely to a regular plain text file, edit them and import them back in.

Sirs;

I've searched for this solution and all say "Click on the FireFox Button" which does not exist, so what is the real anser.

I never ever, as in "HELL FREEZING OVDEER" want anything in the windows default "Downloads" Directory, so need this solution ASAP!

My downloads must go to the "RIGHT" folder depending on the "TYPE" of download for I download things for 1.) Windows, 2.) Linux, 3.) Programs, 4.) Install Packages, 5.) Support Items, etc. so having the right files in the right place is essential, especially since all must "SYNV" with my LINUX server.

Cheers!

I am trying to install VPN for the first time on my MacBook Pro, 13.5.2 (22G91). I get the message VPN is on - No Signal - Check connection. I found the advice on troubleshooting and added Mozilla VPN by my Firewall, but it did not change anything. Now I am trying to reset Mozilla VPN by clicking 6 consecutive times in the Get Help to reach Developer Options, as adviced in your Troubleshooting article, but to no avail. What can I do?

I have had Firefox for three days now, and I was trying to watch some videos on Netflix, but I got this error that the DRM was not installed. I did not have any plugins installed or VPN on either. I was looking for steps to solve this but came to a dead end. I tried looking into the console, and it gave me errors with turning off/on the DRM. I would like to get some help with this.

All of a sudden Firefox won't load. I get this message ...

"Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window."

There is no other window open and I still get this message. I've uninstalled and reinstalled it and I still get this message when the program won't load.

Help!
