After the 115.11.0 ESR Update All My Settings Are Gone, No Way Back

I've just updated from 115.04esr to 115.11esr for macOS to the heap of unwelcome troubles. This experience is extremely unfriendly and annoyingly brazen on part of the Firefox developers.

Every time I launch the browser it starts up from its default profile, not mine. I lost access to all my themes, extensions, history, devices and settings as a consequence, and cannot regain it.

All efforts to launch FF from another profile upon opening of a new instance resulted in a dialog nagging me to move the app to /Applications even though I always kept it in a subfolder of my choosing, and intend on continuing to do so. Refusing to submit opens the default new Firefox profile in every instance.

Closing Firefox instances is impeded by a Chrome-like first-after-installation closure prompt asking to have the browser warn me every time I'm closing the browser. Repeatedly rejecting the prompt makes no difference.

The flatly blunt and pervasively arrogant manner, in which the new Firefox forces its way, is off the charts and is unacceptable.

Is there a straightforward way of restoring the old behaviour and telling it to honour my settings?

I imported info from Thunderbird on other computer. Now every time I open Thunderbird on the new laptop it says it can't reach my email server, incorrect login. If I enter my password it repeats the failure message. If I just close the message, the popup appears again, closing it again, it repeats once more, then closing it keeps it gone. Once I get the message to stop popping up by the repeat closings of the message, the related email account has already collected new emails so it was working. For what it's worth, the laptops are both Lenovo, the old is running Win10, the new Win11. Before the Import is was working fine, I only wanted to transfer my contacts, but the export grabbed everything. I don't have the issue on the original laptop I exported the info from.

How can I sign in to Netaddress with the new Firefox update?

I'm afraid that as I am old and female I haven't a clue how all the information below can help. What can I do with it? As I can't access my only email address, I'm not sure how I can follow instructions.

Fingers crossed for some information. At the moment all I get is 'bad request'.

This is my Mac Monterey. My Windows 10 is in Safe Mode With Networking. The last update will not download. That version is 125.0.3. What's available under Windows updates does not download either. Now I am running my antivirus on my Windows to see if it runs clean. I do not know why I cannot apply these updates.

I have a Thunderbird on my old windows computer. I just installed it on my new computer (and I donated). I could have sworn that I had the import/export tool on the old Thunderbird. I desperately need to move some folders of emails from the old computer to the new one. I can't find a way to do that. I went to a link that said the import/export tool no longer works. I tried archiving the messages in a folder but have no idea where they went. Luckily I could undo that. What is the best way to move these folders of emails to the new computer? It was really easy many years ago.

Firefox automatically updated itself to version 126.0 (64-bit) and it was unable to display any web sites.

First I disabled Mozilla VPN but that did not fix my issue. Next, I disabled Microsoft Defender firewall software to no effect.

Finally I updated the shortcut to Firefox on my taskbar to launch the browser. This fixed my issue.

Hopefully, this will save other users from the same pain.
