Hi, I have two computers (call them A and B) and want to sync, at least bookmarks preferences and logins... BUT for the first "sync" operation, I want A to OVERWRITE the data on B (not MERGE) ... and thereafter sync normally.

How can I do this?

Many thanks in advance

Telling a 32bt from 64bt file by the name--Firefox Standard--Firefox esr

I'd like to request that the same versions of the Firefox files have the 32bt or 64bt designation in the name. When downloading directly FF Standard and FFesr for my 32bt and 64bt computers/laptops, I can't tell which is which in the download folder, and so I have to download them all over, this time waiting for each to download so I know which it is, and then rename it, and then downloading the other bt version.

    (For example: the file "Firefox Setup 91.5.1esr.exe" could be 32bt or 64bt file, both download with the same name. The same with FF Standard et al.)

It's tedious to do the renaming but I prefer to know at a glance which is which in my archive folders. . . Been doing this renaming for years. Just thought I'd finally make a request. I believe it's the same issue in the Linux and iOS 32bt and 64bt versions--they look identical in the download folder. Thank you.

I installed Win11, Firefox ESR and tried to import my bookmarks which I exported in Win10 to an HTML file. When I open the HTML file I can see the bookmarks under the Bookmarks Toolbar but these are not imported/visible. After import I can only see the Bookmarks Menu bookmarks.

What is going wrong here?

Hello. I want to report a performance issue (slowness) caused by the overexcesive virtual memory usage by Firefox sub-processess.

State description

After runing Firefox, I observed in the htop the process of Firefox (and it's sub-processes) and compared it with the about:processes

I had discovered that main Firefox process opens many sub-processess that aren't even used (they does not appear on the mentioned above "about" page).

Additionally, in some mement, at latest one of the created sub-process start to use 28.6 GB of virtual memory, like each of the created by it sub-process. This causes quite big loose of stability of the browser and even system

All because Firefox seem to be too stupid to follow a correct symbolic link to place (on another drive) where the file exist and has propper permissions (is accessable).

Thereof, please notify the developers about the described above bug, that it can become quickly fixed. Thanks

For quite a while I am using Firefox and had no issues, but recently, with new version , I am constantly facing two issues 1. the initial load of a page takes more then 30 seconds , sometimes 1 minute, but after the first page has been loaded if I open another page , it will be as usual 2. Completely random and without any sign of slowing down the OS - the OS freezes - nothing works at all and I have to restart it using the power button. ( and this happens when Firefox is open so I doubt Firefox)

version Firefox Browser 91.0.2 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0

I installed Firefox on a new device and initiated a sync for multi-account containers - it promptly synced in the wrong direction. It eliminated all customization from what should have been the source (the existing device), overwriting it with the default settings of a first-time installation. I was quite surprised.

This leads me to a couple of questions.

1. Is there a sync version history or any way of rolling back a sync? 2. Is there a way to explicitly choose the sync direction?

Quite honestly it is very confusing that there is no reference whatsoever to which way an initial sync will go. I was hesitant to risk this, decided to trust it knew what to do (even though it didn't give me any indication that it did) and lost my gamble.

Firefox knows the device names, so can I suggest some basic reassuring UX be inserted into this process with something like "Initiate sync from X-DEVICE-FIREFOX to Y-DEVICE-FIREFOX?". A bit of clarity would be helpful here, as well as a way to roll back a syncing mistake instead of just having to gamble possibly losing hard-won customization with no going back.

Or have I completely stumbled past some obvious place where everything I'm requesting exists and is accessible already?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

After the recent update the colors of the drop down menus has changed. File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools and Help. Prior to this it was white background with black writing. Now it is black background with white writing. I am using Abstract Electric theme which is a dark theme but prior to this I was able to have the white background and black text. Can't figure out how to change it, I am sure it is something simple but for the life of me can't alter it. I don't want any colors to change except the colors of the drop down menus. Please help.
