Has anyone else encountered the problem of Firefox for Mac disappearing from my after restarting my computer only to pop up after a few minutes and set up like a new browser? I was using Firefox on my MacBook Pro with sync on, but after restarting my laptop, Firefox shows up as a new device syncing my account and I can see my previous browser's synced tabs as if that was a separate device. Sorry for rambling, anyone have a solution?

Hi, Sync well, won't!

I've logged in fine, but on three devices (2 x windows 10, 1 x Android 10), it wont sync - although it will send tabs amongst the devices.

I've tried one of the Win10 on two networks.

I click Sync, and I get no error messages, but nothing happens. If I check the about:sync-log, I see the following:

Error log is as follows:

A few days ago synchronization in Firefox stopped working. Relogging and reinstalling the browser does not help. What could be the reason? All synced devices are visible.

Hello. I like to end my text conversations with this cute little fish: <{~~< But it's quite difficult to type on a desktop, so I made a shortcut to it in my mac OS, by typing pf. It works everywhere on my machine but on firefox, which is my preferred browser for chatting, so it's the only time I really need to use it. It's a serious buzzkil, especially since it SHOULD WORK, but doesn't. Can anyone help? I'm on a brand new machine, with a brand new (June 29 2020) download of Firefox with the french canadian language pack installed (it didn't work before I put the language pack on either).

Thanks in advance.

Several years ago style editor in Firefox browser console had an option to do text search in all of the stylesheets at the same time, instead of doing it one by one. I can't seem to find that option anymore, even though I remember seeing a keyboard shortcut for that later on.

Is it still possible to search in all files? If not, what is the best place to request bringing that feature back?

PC版firefoxで、bluetoothイヤホンをペアリングして、Youtube等の動画を試聴しています。 イヤホン側に一時停止/再生と音量調節のボタンがあるのですが、firefoxでの視聴時には一時停止/再生の操作ができません。 音量調節は可能で、スマホのYoutubeアプリだと一時停止/再生が出来る為、イヤホン側の不具合ではないようです。

firefoxの設定を変更する事で、イヤホンのボタンでの操作が可能になるでしょうか? あるいは、拡張機能を導入することで、可能になるのでしょうか? 可能だとすれば、方法をご教授いただきたいです。 よろしくお願いします。

How can I stop loading some pinned tabs when Firefox starts? I know I can set about:config to not load all pinned tabs. What I want to do is not load some specific pinned tabs instead of all pinned tabs. I made a simple addon like the one I attached and tested it, but some tabs are loaded. I have tested this code with about 10 tabs pinned. (When I actually create the addon, I would run browser.tabs.discard() with a specific tab, but this will stop loading all tabs for testing.) This is unstable. Is there any sure way to stop the load?

--- manifest.json {

   "manifest_version": 2,
   "name": "discard test",
   "version": "1.0.0.0",
   "permissions": [

"tabs"

   ],
   "background": {

"scripts": [ "background.js" ]

   }

}

--- background.js browser.runtime.onStartup.addListener(discard_pinned_tabs); function discard_pinned_tabs() {

   browser.tabs.query({pinned: true}).then(async tabs => {

for (let tab of tabs) { await browser.tabs.discard(tab.id);

	    console.log(tab.index, tab.id, tab.discarded, tab.title, tab);

}

   });

}

// browser.tabs.query({pinned: true}).then(async tabs => { // for (let tab of tabs) { // await browser.tabs.discard(tab.id); // console.log(tab.index, tab.id, tab.discarded, tab.title, tab); // } // });

setTimeout(() => {

   browser.tabs.query({pinned: true}).then(tabs => {

for (let tab of tabs) { if (!tab.discarded) { console.log(tab.index, tab.id, tab.discarded, tab.title, tab); } }

   });

}, 5000);

Suddenly the volume control on remote Bluetooth Bose speakers quit working when streaming from FireFox, but continue to work with all Microsoft programs. Now I can change the volume of the Bose speakers using the laptop volume control, but no effect with the remote speaker volume control. This happened about the same day that the new Edge was automatically installed by Microsoft on a Win10 laptop. The same websites Bluetooth to the Bose from Edge with full remote volume and computer volume control as do files stored on the laptop played through a Microsoft music player. Funny how that tempts one to change the default to Edge -- conspiracy? Is there something I can tweak either in Bluetooth or in FireFox? Jon I have now confirmed that the problem is with FireFox and not with the bluetooth Bose speakers. The pause/play and volume buttons on the Bose speakers work with Chrome, Edge and Safari as well as music players from Win10 and an iPad -- but do not work from any of those devices with FireFox. Is there something I need to do to FireFox on my end, or is it just broken? Jon

Recently, Firefox on my main PC has been having trouble opening pages. The same thing happens on my office PC, but less frequently.

Today it's come to a point where over 50% of the time I try to open a "New Tab" or open a link in a new tab, that new tab will get stuck in a state where it's either showing the URL and making no attempt to load the page, just showing a blank white page (which is wrong, I set it Firefox Home, but it happens with FF:Home or Blank).

I've tried refreshing Firefox, it hasn't made a difference. IF anything the problem is just getting worse and the browser is becoming more and more unusable.

Can anyone help me troubleshoot this? I'm wondering if it's specific to my add-on setup. It shouldn't be, I spent ages disabling add-ons one-by-one to see if it made a difference, then I found the problem even occurs in safe mode / all add-ons disabled.

Is it a recent problem with Firefox? I recall this happenning with an update maybe a year or two ago then it resolved itself, but lately the browser is becoming un-usable for me. Before, when I had tabs jammed like this, I could copy the URL and paste it into a new tab to get back to browsing, but now all the new tabs in my current session are broken like this.
