I have a new laptop. Each time I restart I have to sign back onto Firefox Sync. My old computer is automatically signed in which is way more convenient.

I saw one article that said to change the 'history' settings to 'use custom settings for history' with a few additional steps. I have tried this with no change in the programs behavior. Any thoughts?

Thank you,

In beta (67.0b16 (64-bit)), All addons labeled as broken, can't re-download, problem solved by creating fresh profile.

No reply necessary: starting yesterday, all of my extensions (Firefox Containers, Newsguard) are listed as outdated and to be replaced. Going to the Firefox Containers download page and clicking the download link signals an error about a download failure. Looks like this could be related to a change to how extensions are applied (or not) in private windows.

I (appear to have) solved this by just starting up with a fresh profile in Firefox, not a huge deal, but this may affect others as well...

The link for my workmail used to work, but with the last update of firefox I cannot open it. this is the site: muz.ndr.de

I enter my details, they are accepted and then I fail to be redirected, there is a little info icon in the address bar that tells the connection is not considered safe. Well it was two weeks ago.

Nothing in my setup has changed for months, apart from the recent firefox update.

Thanks for your help! Martina

Hello,

I have some add-ons enabled. Frequently like in some weeks or a month, all the add-ons get automatically removed and the message that 'your added add-ons aren't supported anymore' appears. Then I go to the addons website and I see that the same add-ons are already added and just 'remove' option appears for the same add-ons.

But then when I go to my add-ons list, the same addons don't appear. After a day or restarting browser/PC, the addons then automatically appear. This time it's been a day, and I don't remember all of my old-addons. But the addons aren't appearing and it's really been a very annoying issue.

Any help on it?

I got fed-up with Google and decided to come back to Firefox. Maybe a mistake. All depends on response. I downloaded Firefox and placed it on my taskbar. Now, when I click on the icon, what comes up is a window with various web sites. In the past, when I clicked on the icon, FB automatically came up. What do I have to do to get that back? Thanks for any help.
