An automatic update of Firefox which resulted in a "quit/create new profile" choice has removed all my bookmarks

Of the four profiles stored in "about:profile" three are identical (ie. have only the default bookmarks stored) and one, generates a "quit/create new profile" message.

The "bookmarksbackup" folder (in /home/user/.Mozilla/Firefox/zs1jki8t.default) is empty.

The "import/backup" option (in Manage Bookmarks) offers nothing to choose. There is no 'list of dated automatic backups.'

Firefox did not create an "Old Firefox Data" folder on the desktop.

Browser privacy "strict". "Never remember history" was selected.

Running Firefox in Manjaro (Linux)

I am tri-lingual, so I switch between three languages all the time. How can I quickly switch between my favorite 3 languages (en_US, de_DE, es_CL)? I couldn't care less about the other locales and only very rarely need other languages like fr_FR. Please get all those out of my way. Please make the drop-down such that it only shows locales I used in the last year, with an extra option "others" where you move all the rest.

I searched an address and Google Maps gives an (accurate) estimated travel time to that address. Within Settings>Locations they are not listed as having permission to use location data and when they requested location data, I selected not to share.

Is there a way to specifically block a website from accessing location data? Is there a way to report suspisious activity from a website?

Thanks!

I'm running 96.0.3 on a fully patched Win 10 Pro system - both O/S and programs. When Firefox is running I'm getting these pop-up error messages randomly with changing content. They stay on screen for some seconds and then go away. Message states it's from (via) 5.back2yard.biz. I put that in my hosts file and I'm still getting them. My network is a cable modem hooked to Xfinity and then cable connected to another fully newer patched router. All addresses are 10. range. I ran both a Malwarebytes scan and a Windows Security scan - both are clean.

I'm unable to upload a small image after a hour so I'll give up on that right now.

Recently, my Google Search results have been rendered strangely. Some of the strangeness is 1) lack of Google Settings button in the upper right corner; 2) lack of estimated # of results at the top of the page; 3) lack of # of pp. at the bottom of the page; 4) lack of option to see cached versions of each result. I have cleared cookies and cache. I have run an anti-malware program. I have reiterated the problem in safe mode. What to do next to resolve the problem? (And, what would happen if I'd go to the FF pancake and click under History, "Clear site settings"?)

Do I need to "undo" the update so I can log onto my established websites? I am using Blur to help fill in the requested login values. But most of the time, I get circular fixes by the website, that after doing the reset of passwords, etc., still won't work. This is causing much frustration. Please respond asap.

Hi all, I have problems playing certain videos with FF 96.0.3 on 2 different Win 10 computers. Youtube videos, for example, play just fine. However, videos where I just get "Please wait while the media loads" include numerous training videos at support.microsoft.com. (I think I have trouble at other sites as well.) These videos play without any problems on Chrome and Edge. The problem just occurs with FF. I have found a work around, but it's a real pain. It may give someone a good clue as to what the problem is though. If I clear cached web content and cookies EACH time before playing a video and then reload the page, it works. Sometimes just clearing the cache will do the trick. Again, this must be done before each video. Things I have tried include (but are not limited to: reboot pc(s), refresh FF, turned auto play on & off, mute & unmute FF & plug-ins, allowed cookies and pop-ups, disabled ad blocker and other extensions, loaded a Flash Emulator plug-in, confirmed audio is working fine, turned off and on hardware acceleration. I love FF, but this is driving me nuts. I do not consider myself to be terribly tech savvy, but I'm willing to keep trying for a while longer. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, John

I intend to upgrade my desktop PC from Win 8.1 to Win 10 soon due to Microsoft discontinuing support for 8.1 next January and I want to know how to preserve all my current settings in Firefox (including saved Pocket articles). Also, does anyone know for certain whether or not Firefox will be automatically migrated to Win 10 in the upgrade? (If it does, maybe that will answer my first question?)
