Is it possible to restore without losing my passwords, settings and especially favorite?

Recently, my computer has been infected with a malware that has removed some DLLs and damaged the Firefox, Opera and Google programs.

The other two browsers I reinstalled without any problem. But Firefox is my main browser and I'm afraid of losing all my information.

Is it possible to restore without losing my passwords, settings and especially favorite?


You can check if the Firefox profile folder is always present.

If that's the case then Firefox will automatically detect its presence and use.

You should regularly make a backup of your personal data stored in the Firefox profile folder in order to avoid a potential loss in case of problems.

  • HP Pavilion dv4 Notebook PC: Possible to restore without CD and recovery drive?

    I have a HP Pavilion dv4 Notebook PC for sharing with my little cousin when he plays his games online. The space on the drive (C :) was almost released because of the many games that it has installed. As such, it has deleted the recovery disk (D :). However, now I need to reformat my computer as it is way too slow with all installed games. How can I proceed without a recovery or a recovery CD/DVD disk?

    Is it possible for me to buy a CD/DVD somewhere or download entire file recovery on a page online?

    Thank you and have a nice day ahead!


    Thank you to write back, I do apologize to let you Kow that if the unit was purchased in the USA or at the Canada Shipping of CD would be the only country, the only thing I could think is to have the CD delivered to a person in the United States or the Canada that can send the CD in the country that you are. Other than that, I would recommend instead you to get a retail version of the operating system of any local store and install this file on your computer.

  • Thunderbird does not open after a crash; How to restore without losing data?


    I tried to write an eMail with an attachment and Thunderbird did not no more. I closed it and tried to restart, but I got the error message that it was being used.

  • Got the blue screen of death on the old Dell PC that I can to restore without losing my son especially pictures files

    Insurmountable boot disk

    The safest option is to remove the drive from the computer, mount it in a USB caddy and plug it into another computer to see if it can be read.

    This involves absolutely no changes on disk and therefore has the greatest opportunity to recover the files intact. Although you can try to boot from a Windows DVD and run a repair when it comes to something like the photos that are by definition irreplaceable, I would always look a 1 passive recovery.

    You can then go to active repair knowing that essential equipment is secure.

  • How can I return 'Default' Firefox (topic: config) without losing all my modules and Persona settings?

    I changed a couple of parameter in previous versions, to speed things up. These parameters have been "inherited" from version 6.x which I think has more need.
    I want to return my Firefox settings by default, (processing pipeline, server calls etc) but don't want to lose my Add-ons, Extensions or Persona settings.
    Is this possible?
    My Firefox will REALLY slow and crashes often

    Paul Wade

    Creating a profile will return all of your default settings of Extension/add-ons, you will need to re - install the Extensions/additional custom modules in the new profile

    Most of the settings that you have probably set different values are in about: config, then filter = network.http (I watch 24 elements in Firefox 6, all with the 'status' = default)

    • Those that are displayed in the lower panel in fat and as a user set are items that have been modified by you and/or an extension/add-on.
    • You can right-click on these elements, in your case those typically shown as "whole" types and choose "Reset".
    • Those who re - appear after restart of Firefox are possibly be changed/added by an Extension; There were / are many extensions to change these settings
    • After "Reset", not with an empty value (there should be none in network.http unless you added), will be deleted when you restart Firefox. those are elements that are not the default set of preferences hidden in your version.
    • Make a list of what you change hidden preferences (topic: config) so that you can reverse these changes later if needed.
    • List of preferences network.http: _ _FAQs_:_About:config_Entries #Network.
      • The list is not entirely current or complete, but is the best we have at this moment
      • Do not add new products to your preferences, unless you know what you're doing
      • Do not delete all the elements of your preferences, unless you know what you're doing

  • Can I temporarily disable the password saving and then reactivate without losing my passwords?

    Currently, I am producing a video screenshot to ask my users on how to complete the automated process of 'forgot password'.
    I want to just disable the password save dialogues while I save the screenshot.

    However, I don't want to lose all my passwords/connections in the process!

    Many thanks and best wishes,


    Another idea is to create a separate profile to Firefox for demos. It's a separate Firefox settings folder that is saved along with your main profile.

    A new profile will be your plugins installed by system (for example, Flash) and extensions (e.g., security suite toolbars), but no themes, other extensions or other customizations. It should also have databases of completely fresh settings and cool a cache folder.

    If you want to try it:

    Out of Firefox and start in the profile using Start Manager > Search box (or run):

    firefox.exe -P

    Do not delete anything here!

    Any time want to switch profiles, exit Firefox and return to this dialog box.

    Click on the button to create a profile, assign a name like Clean2015 and ignore the ability to move the profile folder. After you create the profile, select it and start Firefox in this profile.

    One of the advantages is that none of your history shows in this profile.

    When you return to the Profile Manager, you might be tempted to use the button to delete the profile. It's a little too easy to accidentally delete your 'real' profile, so I recommend you to resist the temptation. If you don't want to clean up later, I suggest to make a backup of all your profiles first in case something go wrong.

  • Format without losing any data?

    I removed the hd to my external hard drive enclosure because the usb connection broke.

    I put the hd in my pc and I format. Is it possible to do that without losing data?

    The format will result in the loss of data; It is not possible to format without losing any data. You must back up the data before performing format.

  • How to change the RSS feed without losing subscribers

    I am currently using blubrry to download my podcasts. I'm not the host through them, but rather on my own site and using my feed to send to iTunes ( However, I spent to SoundCloud to start my hosting podcasts. I added my last three episodes of the podcast on SoundCloud and they integrated into my website. However, how can I change the RSS feed of my original stream to my new SoundCloud feed without losing all my subscribers and sides?

    My first thought was to connect to iTunes Connect and my current RSS is such a list, swap out for my new. Which will work? Is it that simple? It seems that I read many ways outdated, complicated to do this process just make sure, if this is the newest, easiest way?

    Appreciate your help. Thank you!

    In order to keep your subscribers, you must either add the "itunes: new-feed-url' to the original feed, or launch a redirect 301 on your server: ideally both." These will change to the new food store and also your subscribers will be transparently redirected - they won't even notice. The complete method is explained in detail here:

    If you are unable to change the power supply and also cannot implement a 301 redirect, then using Podcasts Connect will redirect the store but not subscribers redirect. In this case, the only option is to include an announcement in the last podcast on old food (you could do a special episode) announcing the change and ask people to re-subscribe from the shop page.

    Hi Jason,

    Since you did a factory restore, you must get in touch with the manufacturer of the computer, for assistance in the recovery, files.

    You can also use your favorite search engine looking for a third party recovery tool recover files.
