Have upgraded to Firefox 88.0 on Mac. Have also recently cleared history, but have reinstated the web sites where I want my cookies retained.

In the past, I could quit Firefox and when I next boot it, my daily sites like Yahoo and Ebay do not require password log-in since I have "exempted" them from being cleared on the previous Firefox quit.

I do use "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" - but this is where the exceptions should come into play.

Until just recently this all worked fine. Now it does not and am required to re-log in after a fresh boot.

Any suggestions? Thanks. - jr

I lost all faith in Firefox a few years ago after a botched upgrade ruined it, so I downgraded and stopped upgrading entirely. The new interface is garbage, and I hate it. Everything HAS to be a distracting theme. Stupid.

But I'm finally trying to upgrade anyway for security reasons. When I try to use the new version of Firefox, I try to import my bookmarks, and only the bookmarks NOT inside the Bookmarks Toolbar import. Obviously, this means I can't upgrade, and I sure as hell am not risking upgrading this browser directly, since I have zero faith in Mozilla these days.

My question to Mozilla: Why can't we just import directly from another version of Firefox like I could if I'd been smart enough to use Chrome instead? And I receive a bloody warning when I open it, telling me to either create a new profile or quit, so there isn't even an option to import my bookmarks directly! I'm honestly thinking about just dropping you for Chrome at this point. It would just be easier.

My question to everyone: WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO to get my bookmarks toolbar imported? I export. I import. NOTHING.

Thanks!

Is there a way I can detect a pending update and restart firefox? I'm on MacOS. We're updating browsers in an enterprise environment and we allow automatic update but the user doesn't restart the browser to complete the update. If there's a way to detect this I can prompt the user myself. Unless there's a policy I can enforce that would work better.

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

I have no trouble accessing these sites with Safari. I've taken a number of steps to correct, such as running a malware scan, clear cache and history, starting in safe mode, yet nothing has worked. Any suggestions?

When I try to print from Firefox 88 on my Mac Laptop running OSX 10.12.6 the new print preview window takes a very long time to load the preview before I can print. I could not find a work around.

I tried switching to the Classic print system via (print.tab_modal.enabled - False) Now I don't have the preview to deal with so I can print immediately like I used to. However, if I try to open a PDF in Preview from the Print Dialog window, it takes a very long time to load the preview which it did not do in earlier versions of Firefox.

I am surmising that one of the Firefox updates added the print preview function which doesn't work quite right on my Mac.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Andy

hi, i'm mostly interested in getting some help with creating my settings/preferences to stay the way i want them. every time there's a update, my personal settings get wiped out and i have to start all over again. there was a time when FF offered a way to leave some updates out and select the ones we wanted. now, it's all blanket updates. many times i lose important tabs and files. it's annoying. the way these updates are coming in i cringe each time i see the notice. and then there are times they get done automatically.

what's a mother to do?

many thanks for your consideration!

Hi,

I've tried multiple times to clear the cache from Preferences by "Clearing Data" but the count still reads that there is cache. I made sure to refresh but that wasn't the issue. I also tried restarting firefox.

Next, I quit firefox, went to ~/Library/Caches/Firefox/Profiles/ since I'm using a mac and I deleted the cache2 folder. I emptied the trash to boot. There were still files in the cache!

Currently, the cache is 535KB. In About:Cache, Disk cache reads 229 KiB and 11 entries. However, I can't see the entries when I click on "List Cache Entries."

This has never happened to me before. Please help me clear the cache!

Only today, I updated to 78.10.0esr. I don't know if that's the issue.

Hey, I cannot, for the life of me, get to a point where I can delete individual bookmarks. I have researched all avenues and fixes here on the forum, and NONE seem to help out. Sync is not on. I have tried removing the places.sqlite, rebooting Firefox, then putting the places file back into the profile.

Verifying integrity gives me this: > Task: checkIntegrity - Unable to check places.sqlite integrity: Error: Error(s) encountered during statement execution: > Task: invalidateCaches - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

But I don't know how to remedy this "error".

I have tried to restore bookmarks, but that just erases ALL bookmarks, leaving the folders in place.

Any suggestions would be very appreciated! Thanks
