Hello,

Firefox sync stops working for 3 days on my 3 computers and my android phone.

I tried everything I found on the support website but nothing seems to work. I tried to change my password, disconnect then reconnect sync, reset firefox...

Here is the latest sync log : http://pastebin.com/ivrcwPS2

I tried to connect on the address in the log but the server seems not responding https://sync-241-us-west-2.sync.services.mozilla.com/1.5/27339912/

Can anyone help me ?

For the last 2 weeks google has decided to go very basic and the layout has changed (see attached screenshot if it ever loads). A lot of the search categories like Shopping, video, maps etc. have disappeared leaving only web and images. Images only gives about 30 results and they're not very accurate. Web search is hit and miss too with some very strange suggestions at times. I don't think I've done anything to the setting at least not intentionally and it's working fine in Chrome. I've tried restoring it and all the usual tricks but nothing has worked and I don't want to go back to Chrome crashing twice a day. I'm using win10

I downloaded BlackBelt Privacy for using Tor with Firefox. All of my bookmarks and toolbars disappeared after that. I read this page that says that my bookmarks are in the places.sqlite file: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data#w_what-information-is-stored-in-my-profile I found 2 places.sqlite files and saved the largest one in hopes that it might have my bookmarks. When I try to use the Restore Bookmarks feature in the Library window of Firefox, it won't accept that sqlite file because it insists on having a JSON file. I've restored Firefox to default settings but still don't have my old bookmarks and toolbars back. How can I get my old bookmarks and maybe my toolbars back if that's possible?

I turned off SafeSearch to be able to access some adult sites that frankly I don't find terribly risky lol the point is I'm an adult and find it frustrating not to be able to use my computer as I did before with nothing but problems. Had the issue been addressed by simply turning off the safe search feature I would of considered the web search features fair and not felt annoyed and frustrated however I'm still locked in the Kiddie web search zone LOL

Using Windows10, when I click link that uses Flash I get "invalid content specified error #2048" but when using Chrome, no issues, any ideas? I have uninstalled Flash and reinstalled but have the same situation, runs fine on Chrome but not on FireFox. I am running FireFox 45.0.2 (en-US). This just started about a week ago and I have been clicking links on this financial website for about a year without issues. I called the website owner and was told they test the Flash videos on Firefox and Chrome and on both browsers the Flash videos are working fine.

Any help/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

After a Windows 10 install I began having problems with PRINT using FF v45.0.2. When I try to print selected documents on my banking web site I and get only the left 2/3 of the page and the print is enlarged. I have checked all my local print settings and none have changed and trials with other of my LAN printers give the same result. I also get the same result whether i use the FF PRINT command or use the PRINT link on the website. See attached screen shots.

I have made additional trials using Chrome, Opera, and Maxthon browsers and they all print display and print without problem.

Secondly, another web site (details available) will only let me print page 1 of any multi-page document. The other test browsers preview and print all pages correctly.

Can anyone tell me why Windows 10 and FF 45.0.2 don't play well together?

Intel application auto launch won't start Firefox with my profile

I was referred here by Intel tech support. My original thread is at: https://communities.intel.com/message/389686

My Intel wireless network settings lets me automatically launch an application whenever I connect to a certain wireless network ("Enable Intel connection settings" in Control Panel\Network and Internet\Manage Wireless Networks). However, when I choose to launch Firefox, it launches without my profile.

I located the profile folder according to the directions in the topic "How can I determine which profile Firefox 3 is currently using?". I was greeted with the attached error message upon trying to open the profile folder from the "profile-less" instance of Firefox. When I launch Firefox after closing the "profile-less" instance, my profile is loaded normally.

I tried to set my auto launch application path using a command line argument, but that resulted in a message indicating that my program path was invalid.

I tried creating a batch file that started Firefox, then setting my auto launch application path to that batch file. The text of my batch file is (including quotes):

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

Unfortunately, that didn't work either. I would like to know why Firefox can't load my profile using the auto launch feature, but it can load my profile when I launch it from my taskbar.

Pandora recognized me when I opened the site and no longer does. I don't remember my Pandora password and the email associated with my Pandora free account no longer exists (so they can't send me my password.) I'd hate to lose the dozens of identified artists that exist in my Pandora rotation. Help!
