Can I replace all data on a browser with sync data, instead of merging it?

I'd like to completely replace the data on new Firefox installs with the data on the server, instead of having it merge the defaults back. The old Firefox Sync used to have this option, but I can't figure out how to do it with the Firefox Accounts based system.

I'd like to be able to change preferences on my master install, and then making absolutely sure that gets pulled down on other instances.

Since Firefox 47 I have been running into an issue where Firefox will go "Not Responding" for 10 to 30 seconds. During the hang CPU usage will spike to 12% and ram usage will double, once over everything returns to normal. Once the hang happens it will not happen again until Firefox is exited and started again. The hang also seems to occur around the time a page or page component loads, for example expanding an imgur image.

I have tried switching to 64 bit Firefox, refreshing Firefox, safe mode, enabling one addon at a time, enabling e10s, and even freshly installing Windows 10. Nothing I have done so far as seem to make it stop.

hi all, had a strange problem this past week. In Firefox browser I can click on a new tab. This is set to go straight to my home page. But now when I do it I have three new tabs come up and go straight to my home page. Also, if I have multiple tabs up and I close one, I will get more than one (unrelated) tabs close for no reason. What's the problem and how do I stop it?

Started early Thursday Morning-would go to the above websites (hardly controversial) and in most cases would them show a separate page stating"Symantec has blocked this as a fraudulent site and would be potentially harmful to click through to the article. It started with dailycaller.com, then progressed to hotair.com and then foxnews.com this morning. I contacted Symantec/Norton 360 and they provided me with nothing tangible. I have been using them for seven/eight years and never run into this. Any thoughts? I would prefer to continue to use Mozilla/Firfox as my primary browser. Sincerely, J.C.

Last time I did a clean wipe, and followed all the export/import stuff and the ensuing json/html file debacle, I lost hundreds of my firefox bookmarks. I do not want any history, passwords, or anything else, just the bookmarks. How can I save them and have them ready for when I re-install Windows 10. Naturally Windows forces the user to go through their setup crap and it may be awhile before I've dumped most of their programs and re-establish firefox as my default browser. Thank You for any help.
