Good morning,

I ended up having to get a new cell phone. I reinstalled Firefox beta and sync'd everything but none of my collections speared. I uninstalled / reinstalled a couple times but I cannot get my collections to sync. How are these sync'd to my new phone? If it was merely a few I'd start over but the number is more substantial.

Thank you!

Jeff

I specifically went to the esr as I don't want the regular changes to things that I don't like on how the page looks and even works at times. And I don't care about whether things are faster. Even if they are I want stability in what I have to use. I seem to always be told everywhere that you have to update and/or you need more security or whatever reason trying to push me to different things. Maybe I misunderstood but I thought that I may never have to do any updates as long as FF supports this. Well I trusted that things would not change when I updated the esr and I didn't even see these weird changes listed but here are things changed to garbage. I want my old FF back. And how do I do this without making a mess of things. I have lots of tabs for one thing and I do not want them messed with. What in the world is always going on? I was on I believe esr 58.11 (no way of telling for sure) and now it is 94. I don't want it.

"Bookmarks & Other Bookmarks " Part Two due to topic being "Archived"

Greetings!

First jscher2000, & Cor-el, I Absolutely Thank both of You for the Time/Effort that you have put in to helping me, &,..... If I have appeared to be "Ride/Crude &/or Socially Un-acceptable" in my statements, I Absolutely Apologize. And, even though My "Bookmarks Situation" is still not "Normal" & it is time consuming to use,..... It is far better than what it was initially, & I Thank both of You, for having gotten it to that point.


Having gotten caught up a little with my work, & still not having the issue of my "Bookmarks" not taken care of,I went back to the long thread of "Bookmarks & Other Bookmarks " only to find this problem "Archived", without it having been Solved.

This issue has been ongoing since March 4, 2021, where my "Bookmarks" were missing, to where my "Other Bookmarks" are getting placed within My Main Bookmarks.

jscher2000, on June 7,2021 , You stated: 

"I have no explanation for inability to drag and drop as long as your database is healthy."


Sir,... What Data/ Tests, would show whether my Database is Healthy or not? After all that has been done to get my Bookmarks to the point where they are now, did any of the previous procedures indicate anything about the "Health of My Database"?



cor-el, on June 13,21, you stated:

"If you use Sync then best is to disconnect Sync temporarily during troubleshooting.

This can be caused by a problem with the places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite databases in the Firefox profile folder.

   use "Verify Integrity" button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page 

If errors are reported with "Verify Integrity", close and restart Firefox or reboot and retry.

If "Verify Integrity" cannot repair places.sqlite, rename/remove all places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

   keep a backup copy of places.sqlite in case a new places.sqlite database has to be created 

You lose the history when a new places.sqlite is created.

   https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-bookmarks-and-history-will-not-be-functional 

You can use the button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.

   Help -> More Troubleshooting Information -> Profile Folder/Directory:
   Windows: Open Folder; Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder
   https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data " 

My last post was on June 14,2021 where I posted data, that appeared to suggest that my "places.sqlite database sane" (meaning "Normal"?) And that my "The database is coherent"., ... (Which in My thinking means that it should be understandable, possibly "Healthy"?)

But Gentlemen,..... I'm not "well versed" in the usage of a Computer/ Browser etc., & If "My Livelihood"  was dependent upon repairing/diagnosing Soft Ware Applications, .... I'd Starve to Death.  

But, if an application were related to my work,.... I'd have somewhat firmer ground to stand upon, which is why I posted June 14, 21:

"If this were a ECU for a Walk-n Refrigeration unit, I'd know what these "Codes" above meant, but here, I don't have a clue whether the data is pointing out a problem, or stating that what is causing the "Bookmarks" problem, is not to be found in the above Data."

With that said,.... Cor-el, If I,...... " rename/remove all places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite files in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed. Firefox will rebuild places.sqlite and restore the bookmarks from a recent JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder."

Will the rebuilt & restored bookmarks from that "recent JSON backup" also be corrupt, since they are a copy of what is being used?

"You lose the history when a new places.sqlite is created."

But not "Bookmarks"?

I'm curious,...... Should I do a "Re-set/Refresh" Again?

And, since "The health" of my browser may be an issue, should I un-install, & re-install Firefox?

Also,.... Firefox, & many other applications have been slow to "Load" &/or "Operate" at times, & despite having Software such as "Privacy Badger", "NoScript", "Ghostery", & "Malwarebytes" all operating, as well as "Windows Security", & "Ccleaner"... I'm thinking that somehow, that something, perhaps "Bit Coin Mining", has latched on to my PC.

What do Ya'll recommend?

A lot of webGL apps are very low framerate (and lie about their framecounts), for example: https://webglsamples.org/blob/blob.html This runs smoothly at 60 fps in chromium, but in firefox it behaves badly. The fps counter flickers as either 53 or 80, but in reality it is maybe 15fps or lower and very stuttery. The resolution, number of blobs, or size of the window does not change anything.

  • If I enter Troubleshooting Mode, it all returns to working order. The FPS is fixed

I have tried disabling ALL extensions, changing to the default theme, disabling hardware acceleration, deleting cache+cookies+history

I installed firefox developer edition and checked it there, and it was at 60 fps, until I logged into Sync, when it then dropped.


I use KDE manjaro linux and have hardware that is definitely good enough to run the content at high framerates normally (everything works perfect in chromium)

I am on a Mac Pro running High Sierra. Everytime I launch Firefox I get a error message that "this file may harm your computer" which is a .dmg in my downloads toolbar. I think I clicked on a bad link. I have cleared my cache and history and it still always pops up. I do not want this file nor do I want it to give me this warning everytime I launch Firefox.

Any advice is helpful.

I was looking for a way to reset Firefox to bring back the previous print preview. In several places the person offering an answer suggests sending feedback to Mozilla re the changes, but... no link or place to send feedback.

My desktop and laptop have only just been updated to the latest version with very bright white backgrounds, really large firefox icon on home page, less definition between tabs, a lighter weight font on menus, strange layout on the hamburger menu, and a reset to a google-like print window.

I tried on my desktop to change the bright white background using the colors option. Once I found the settings to tone down the brightness to a very pale grey for the home page and results page, every page I went to had changed fonts and lost colors.

Print preview was an awesome tool, many web pages are set up in such a way that when it is printed the fonts are huge, and the web page header prints over the text of the printout. On the worst panels of links to other stories and ads also print. Your preview allowed me to zoom in/out easily and the simplified version was brilliant.

The tabs are grey on grey with no definite edge, and they just keep shrinking showing less and less of the tab name, instead of hiding extra tabs of the edges. I have 10-20 tabs open on a regular basis often in 2 separate windows and would much rather have a tab label that IDs the page than having to click on each page.

Font - the menu font is now a small fine sans serif that is difficult to read.

Hamburger menu - Why is new tab, find in page, save page as, and print here? In particular why are they at the top of the menu? Please move the new tab panel and print panel to the bottom, the Bookmarks panel to the top and put the Settings panel immediately below it. It would also help if you added a cog icon to the settings panel.

Please add a feedback link without sign-on to your page.

Since 91.3esr update, over a period of a couple of days, if I open the Windows 10 hidden icons I will see a large number of FF icons that disappear immediately after I hover over them. Are these FireFox icons (see picture attached)? I also note that FireFox left untouched will be using 25% of my 32GB memory growing over a period of time. When first opened (I have restore previous sessions option selected), it is minimal memory usage.
