I 've got two Windows 10 64bit devices. In device A there are : Firefox.1 (78.0.2 64bit) and

In device B there are : Firefox.3 (78.0.2 64bit) and

                                       Firefox.4  Portable (78.0.2 64bit)

Firefox1 and Firefox3 are syncing in the same account. My question is : how to sync Firefox2 with Firefox 4? I tried to make a new account (and keep the old one) , but its imposible to have two different Firefox accounts in the same device. Is there any solution for that?

My settings should not allow any changes to 'Top Sites' yet FF (currently 78.0.2) will change my sties w/o permission. This seems to happen if a new version becomes available and I don't immediately update to it. Should not happen.

How can I solve for this when the settings already should make it impossible? This 'auto change' won't hose my bookmarks, it's relatively minor since it keeps some of my top sites. But it's really odd. I use only uBlock Origin, the rest is plain vanilla.

Thank you.

Normalerweise werden die Browserfenster so geöffnet, wie das letzte von ihnen geschlossen wurde. Das funktioniert außer beim Firefox mit allen anderen Fenstern, egal, ob Edge, Chrome, Explorer etc.

Beim FF geht es nicht. Er öffnet immer an der selben Stelle in der selben Größe, unpassend zu meinen Desktopeinstellungen.

  • Win10 Pro (64-Bit)
  • Firefox 78.0.2 (64-Bit)
  • Bildschirmauflösung 2560x1440 px Querformat
  • Firefoxfenster öffnet mit ca. 1000x1092 px

Was kann ich tun, um diesen Fehler zu beheben?

Recently when I started typing my mail address, mail.live.com, when I would type the 'm' a site called marxists.org started appearing at the top of the sites list. I'd never visited this site, and have no desire to, but as I was used to mail.live.com appearing at the top of the autocomplete results, I ended up clicking on this site a couple of times.

Has Firefox promoting political sites recently or is there some other explanation for this?

After the last release, common stream platforms are struggling to properly play video. Firstly it started while I was navigating over other tabs while listening to the audio of a youtube video for example, and the stuttering stopped for a while when I selected the video tab. But now it seems that nothing fixes this bug, as I already tried reinstalling it at least 4 times, with or without addons. Currently I'm using the Windows version running on a Windows 10, Ryzen 5 3600, 32GB RAM and Rx580 video card machine, and I don't see the problem occurring on the Linux Mint version that runs in the same machine. I need some help because this stuttering/lagging is making work on a single machine quite frustrating.

I use my bookmarks to keep track of fanfiction I want to read on archiveofourown.org. The site features a 'history' section itself. Recently I noticed that stories I've bookmarked say that I've visited them way more than I have. The 'How many times you've visited this page' ranges between 30 and 500 times for each story, when I've only actually clicked on them once myself as I bookmarked them. Is firefox constantly opening/pinging my bookmarks and is that what is being reflected on archiveofourown.org?

Thanks!

Firefox Update and Firefox Sync

My setup:

  • Desktop Firefox - Main sync.
  • Laptop Firefox - Secondary.
  • Android Phone - Additional Sync.

Firefox on my Desktop recently updated to the latest version.

In doing so,

  • it reset/removed all my personal settings for my addons. (it even re-asked me for all the permissions)
  • Signed me off of Firefox sync.

So I figured, that's what Firefox sync is for right? sign-on, resync my stuff back to the latest sync.

After syncing

  • Addons personal settings remained reset/removed.
  • All personal Firefox settings around privacy settings and tweaks were reset to default.
  • A lot of old long bookmarks suddenly reappeared. (not a big deal)
  • Password issues * read below

* Password issues. After adding some new passwords while using my main sync Desktop, I noticed It had about 200 less passwords than my Android/Laptop sync.

Is there a way to merge both the password files from my Desktop/Laptop profiles (or even androids)? Sync doesn't seem to be doing it?

Hi Team,

As a concern,we want to enquire that since our company has its own product which uses Flash technology but its been known now that firefox will not suppport adobe flash player after 2020. So if we save and continue to use an oder version of firefox(with autoupdate off),will it allow to continue usage of Adobe Flash Player after 2020? Please confirm the same or any other workaround so that adobe flash player can be used within firefox after 2020 as well.

Thanks

I have been using Firefox for a long time and I really like it. Thank you. But recently I am working with the Chemistry Searching website "Reaxys" and I find it can not open the "Draw" window. Other broswer can still do this. So I think maybe something wrong with Firefox. Compared with Edge or Internet Explorer, I still love Firefox. So please help me to check what's wrong with my browser...

Hello. The screenshot option in my browser is not working. The small scissors icon beside "Take a screenshot" is missing and the button doesn't work. It should be mentioned I recently installed Firefox in a new Windows 10 laptop and this problem is occurring particularly in this laptop. Is the Snipping Tool disabling the screenshot option in Firefox? Is so how do I solve this problem?

Please change back the URL bar ever since it was added a month ago or whenever it has been SO annoying. I'm about to change browsers because I cannot stand it anymore. It is visually unattractive and obnoxious looking.

Also, highlighted text in it is a blue font color with no highlight. Why is this different from every other Windows program?? It is not easy to tell that text is highlighted. It should be HIGHLIGHTED blue with a white font color.
