Do containers not sync? I don't see any explicit option to include them in the sync settings. I have "add-ons" and "settings" checked. One computer has the correct containers and the rest have the default set (personal, shopping, etc.). Sync is otherwise working correctly.

In response to early replies I realized I left out some detail in my question.

- I have sync enabled in the extension settings. - This is a continuous problem (the containers from one browser have never synced with the others, over many months) so I don't think it's just a time delay issue.

Thanks for your responses.

It keeps asking me to UPDATE and I keep clicking DISMISS. I want to turn off update checking. I keep asking for this feature to be restored, and no one is listening. It seems to me that what we want as users no longer matters anymore. I DO NOT WANT Firefox TO CHECK FOR UPDATES. I don't like being nagged.

Reference #18.62052017.1660274157.1f6107dd Other sites like my banking site I can access freely on Edge but cannot on Firefox. No error message in that case, just says error try again. All this started after I loaded Norton. I have had them look at the system, and they have, but also point out that it is not them as I can access the site from Edge. I have looked at the help page and their are thousands of people with the same query but no fixes! As a long term supporter of Firefox I am disappointed that I now have to use Edge to do most of my business. HELP

Hi, I gues I did not have a firefox profile as I had a user profile in the company. my laptoü crashed suddenly and all bookmarks and passwords are lost. True? I cannot restore them via the company user account without having a firefox profile - right? Or is there any other backup next to the profile which can be accessed from another computer? Thanks soooo much! Wibke

Hello at Mozilla Support,

I'm having this issue where sometimes, when I double-click to download a link or open a downloads item, it opens the same bookmark page instead. This is the page, and not sure if it's alphabetical, since this pages starts with an 'a' "https://authorspublish.com/#optin" Wondering how I can get this to stop changing the page I am on and opening the bookmark.

Thanks, Sonya

Firefox version 109.0 (64 bit) I have 2 Laptops, A and B. Laptop A: about 2 years ago Adobe and Flash quit the business, Firefox was doing ok then after an Firefox update videos would not play, I have to use chrome to this day, Had Windows 8 then updated to 10, no difference Laptop B: Everything was good until a couple of weeks ago January ? 10-20?? 2023. Just after an Firefox update my Facebook would not fully load, I can only see a couple of post followed by 3 post that only show a outlined box with an error occurred and if I click on it or anywhere else it kinda of locks up and does nothing. I can use Facebook on my cell phone (no Firefox) and on Laptop A (chrome) so nothing wrong with Facebook. I tried turning on-off, all that stuff. Tried using MS Edge still would not load fully. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled, no help. I updated Windows 10 to 11, I can Run Facebook thru MS Edge but still cant thru Firefox. Just seems like Firefox doesn't like videos. Has my time expired with Mozilla Firefox?

Hi folks,

Since the last 109.0 update I've noticed a strange behavior with Firefox.

Sometimes after watching a video stream in full screen, my toolbar changes and moves all my customized icons / extensions etc. into this "more tools" drop down menu. I can reproduce this by repeatedly switching from full screen to the normal view

This is so annoying and frustrating.

Does anyone know how I can fix this?

I have just logged in anew. Firefox has offered to create a new “profile”. I chose a profile name I am sure I have used before. Firefox claims a user (profile) by that name “already exists”. How may I “re-unite with my lost self”? I refuse to use Firefox again until a logical and reasonable login process is established. I shall delete what seems to be a “new account” and use other browsers.

In November of 2020, I was forced by ATT to stop using Thunderbird as my email client, for both incoming & outgoing email. ATT changed its security protocols, and that required that I begin (at that time) using ATT's (pathetic) email client.

I have used the very clumsy, very limited ATT / YAHOO email client ever since... and, hated every minute of it.

I had previously used Thunderbird for 10-20 years, literally, and I loved the dynamic functionality which Thunderbird offered.

Since then, I have hated my ATT / YAHOO email experience, and I would like to start using Thunderbird again, if that is possible, considering the ATT security protocols.

Can anyone help me ?

Apple's built in spell checker on the Mac is unparalleled. Not only does it integrate with the native dictionary, it also automatically detects and switches languages as you type. Right-clicking on an unfamiliar word brings up the "look up" option which fins the word in the dictionary. It's furthermore smart enough to detect misspelled words which are correct words in another language. I don't know how apple achieved this, it's remarkable.

Anyway, Firefox displaces this functionality on the mac with their own dictionary, which although good, is not as good as the native spell checking and dictionary.

Is there a way to enable the native dictionary for Firefox on the Mac?
