Today at 14:07 I changed my email preferences and unsubscribed from all email types in my Firefox account.

At 5 hours later, at 19:36 I receive an email from Mozilla with the title "Sync your bookmarks, history and logins".

So either the email preferences does not work or the email does not respect the preferences I have set. Either way it's always extremely annoying when this happens and it leaves me wondering if Mozilla takes privacy seriously.

Even worse is, I already have sync set up (which doesn't work anyway as I have written about here).

Pictures attached as "proof" for those who are in doubt.

It seems that Firefox does not sync all settings the way for example Chrome does. In Google chrome one can expect absolutely all settings to sync across browser instances instantly. In Firefox only parts of the settings are synced. This makes Firefox unreliable and inconvenient because it is not apparent to the user which settings are synced and which are not.

Here is my experience:

- I made a new Firefox account - Signed in - Made sure syncing is on for:

  • Bookmarks
  • Credit cards
  • History
  • Add-ons
  • Logins and password
  • Options

- Added some add-ons, added some bookmarks - Customized the interface - Changed some Settings - Opened a Windows 10 VM - Installed Firefox 83 (so both computers have the same version) - Logged in with my Firefox account - Waited for the sync

So far I can see that my extensions are synced and my bookmarks. However there are some things that don't sync:

- Customization for controls, buttons and toolbars - Default search engine - Alternative search engines - Settings for "Firefox Data Collection and Use"

There might be more settings that don't sync, which I have not tested. Is this behavior expected? If so I might switch back to Chrome. Syncing only certain settings defeats the purpose of syncing, at least for me.

Also is there any list or information about which settings are syncing and which are not?

Whenever I open Firefox it opens a new tab for a brief moment then closes it and opens my previous tabs from my last session. I have this setting unchecked in the settings. I think that it is crashing and trying to restore my pages because of that, but there are no crash reports when I visit about:crash. I am running the latest version of Firefox and windows 10.

When watching a video baught from Amazon in most cases audio and picture are not synchronous. Discrepanca seems to increase with watching time. The problem does not occur with Opera, Internet Explorer or Edge. Deleting browser cache and cookies does not help. Reducing the quality or rewind does not help. Internet quality/speed seems to be OK because it wors fine with other browsers. How can I fix this problem. I do not want to go to another browser because I am very happy with firefox.

There appears to be a bug in Firefox when I use this website, https://www.ourguide.com.au/tv_guide.php?r=melbourne&w=now

When you scroll down, the headings move right and show above the wrong information, see attached screen shots.

If you use this website on Chrome, you don't get the scroll issue so I think it is either a Firefox bug or something that needs changing in my Firefox settings.

I am running Firefox 77.0.1 (64-bit).

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I started having problems with YouTube recently and I think it is a Firefox issue.

I am running version 82.0.3 (64-bit) and when I log into YouTube, the Home page is not displaying all the content.

I have attached severl screenshots and you can see the problem as follows:

Image Sign In 1 shows the YouTube home page before signing in. Image Sign In 2 shows the YouTube home page after I have signed in using my Google account and you can see at the top right of the screen that my Google Account avatar (Darth) is showing. However, a lot of the content, e.g. Watch Later, Classics and My Subscriptions which are user related are all missing and if you compare this image to Image Sign In Chrome you can see that Chrome is showing everything and works correctly.

I tried this on Edge as well and it works all okay, the same as Chrome, so that is why I think there is an issue with Firefox.

Also, on the left side in the middle in Image Sign In 1 and Image Sign In 2 you can see a blue Sign In box with the words "Sign in to like videos, comment and subscribe." If you select this option you get an error which is in Image YouTube Sign In Error so I don't know if this is related to my problem but I thought it may help highlight what the problem is.

Any confirmation that it's a Firefox issue or any solutions to what is causing it would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi! I have a company network with about 30 PCs, no domain, but a working internal DNS. There is a server within the network running a webapplication (ASPX). The firewall regulations are very strict, so there are only two hands full of websites reachable from the network. Until now (version 82.x) it was enough to put the adress http://server in the address line of Firefox to open the application. After updating to version 83.0 the server is not reachable anymore, firefox automatically tries to open http://www.server.com "ping server" works, use of \\server in windows explorer and opening an RDP-Connection to "server" works also!

Why is that so and are there any solutions?

Thanks in advance!

I tried to change some things in about:config which resulted in websites not working properly and reverting the changes wouldn't fix it, so I had to do a refresh of Firefox. The sites work like they used to now.

I'm still confused about Firefox Sync's functionality because when I set it up to sync my tabs it never wants to do it, but immediately after the refresh it downloaded all of my Add-ons right away, which was nice to see. However, my settings/options from those Add-ons are missing, like my uBlock filter lists or various Tampermonkey user scripts.

Is there any way I could recover the Add-on settings from the profile backup which the refresh created on my Desktop? There's a folder called browser-extension-data with some other folders inside, but they're all empty. I tried looking for it myself but couldn't find solutions. I also have a complete profile backup I manually made just before I the Refresh as a safety measure if needed. Thank you very much..!

Backing up and restoring lost tabs

I often experience situations on Firefox where I lose all of my important tabs which I never end up getting back, despite having 'restore previous session' turned on. For instance, it happens when a software forcefully opens a "Thank you for installing" site while Firefox wasn't running, or when I accidentally open a link in a new window while being on private mode, when I meant to open it in a new private window instead..

On a different browser I used before switching to Firefox, I used to resolve this by going to it's profile location and looking at two files named "Current Session" and "Last Session". I could just rename the "Last Session" file to "Current Session", and all of my tabs would return. I was hoping Firefox would have something similar, but it seems either impossible or maybe just a bit more complicated, since I cannot find anything regarding this on the web.

Each time this happens to me, I go to my Firefox profile folder but cannot really find anything regarding sessions I could replace and restore. Only thing I managed to back up from the various important tabs I lost were six files in a fashion like this:

recovery.jsonlz4, upgrade.jsonlz4-[a lot of numbers]

Can I use these files to recover my lost tabs somehow, similar to how I used to do it in the different browser? Hopefully I'm understandable, it's a bit complicated to explain for me.

Firefox may have a bug or corrupted files. I did update it recently when asked to do so No longer runs McAfee Web-Advisor ((McAfee could not fix it) and a game runs slow and hangs up or pauses for a couple minutes. Deep virus scan found nothing. McAfee and game run fine on Chrome (I don't like Chrome). Help please--what should I do? If uninstall and reinstall Firefox do I lose my bookmarks?
