I have currently 5 devices connected in Firefox Sync: - Imac - Macbook Pro - 2 Ipads - 1 Android phone

Everything syncs correctly except the android phone which refuses to show the synced ipad tabs from both ipads. I can see the Imac and Macbook Pro tabs, but nothing from the ipad.

All other devices can see everything, including the tabs from the android phone.

Any help is much appreciated.

This is a silly problem, every youtubers nightmare I'm sure. I can't like or subscribe on Youtube via Firefox. I'm getting "Your session has expired." whenever I try to do either. I can sucessfully do both on a different browser on the same machine and other machines with this browser do not have this issue. I am running Windows 10. I have tried starting firefox in safe mode, refreshing firefox, deleting all cached content and cookies, renaming the cookies.sqlite file to cookies.sqlite.old and still no results. I've tried disabling every extension that I have and still nothing. I've exhausted my internet search. Is there anything else I might be missing?

Again, I'm logged in to youtube while this happens, clicking on the "sign in" only brings me to the channel page when trying to subscribe and gives me the same message when clicking it again. Also, can't add videos to playlists.

Hi all. Mozilla Firefox is very slow on my Linux Laptop with the Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565/AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter (with open-source driver ath9k). It takes a lot of time to resolve hosts and to load the webpages.

I am reporting the issue here because Chromium and the rest of web explorers work good and they are as fast as one may expect. When using Windows 10 with the same laptop, Firefox also has no issues and works perfectly well. It appears to be an issue of the combination of Firefox + this specific driver & network adapter.

Used Manjaro, Ubuntu 16, Ubuntu 20 with a lot of kernels ranging from 4.15 to 5.8 and the issue persists and does not seem to be tied to any specific distribution.

I can do some tests if you require so.

Hi, I hope all of you reading this are well :)

I would just like to report that after updating to Firefox Daylight on my phone, the Share image option that appears after tapping on an image and "holding" seems to share the URL to the image instead of the image itself. Is this how it is supposed to work now? It's not a big issue, however I did enjoy sharing images in the previous versions of Firefox for Android.

Many thanks for your time and attention!

I have attached a screenshot of the exact thing that appears instead of being able to log in. A captcha is what would appear and then I'd get logged in. This only happens in Firefox. I specifically tried another browser app and the website works fine there. This is Firefox Beta for Android. This is apparently a Firefox specific issue of some kind. It's not an add-on etc. as this happens when on another device with a clean install and no sync set up yet even. I'm annoyed with this beyond belief and I can't buy anything online or use my banking now without needing a whole other browser or my computer. Please tell me what's broken or fix this.

When I want to select text I - long press word (or double tap) - then drag one of mark - then extending selection

When extending selecting in up or down direction, the address bar appearing or disappearing like I was scrolling. So when selecting text the page is scrolling and shaking so the experience is terrible. I hope it is a bug.

And there is another bug, I cannot select word in input text field.

Hi,

I applied to be in the VPN que quite some time back. I then got an invitation mail a month or so back saying that i am invited to sign up for access to the vpn platform. I did the payment on my mobile because i was not home at the time. I tried Sevral times with all my cards and each try i got a error message. It was said that i should go to my account page and enter my updated payment details there, and i followed the link wich indeed led to the firefox account page, but there was no sight of anywhere to update any payment info.... after trying several timesI then quit and thought there must surely be a support to dialogue with for further instructions..After kind of one Hour Plus of following link after link that just led back to where i had started and where it was said that if i wanted to speak to the Happy and motivated support team id just had to press the link, round and round it want until i realized that im not going to Find any happy and motivated support team, becuse there isnt any... This was over a month ago and i swore that id never ever use firefox again. Im Encouraged and expected to use all the products but they dont want o provide any Serious support when it comes to serious matters as Payments and Debit cards?!? How cheap can they be!!?? Like Really?!

I wrote a mail which i never got any reply to and i replied to the mails claiming being sent from "accounts" but never got an answer. Im seriously disiilisioned with FIrefox.... They dont want to actually Pay for a support team but instead uses VOLONTEERS!?!... like i said... how cheap can a fairly large company get. Although its some sort of foundation....still its not like its greenpeace sailing off to rescue whales in the arctic "volonteers sign up". Just charge a little more for the VPN so that you can provide a fulltime support team, better that then just Cheap being even Cheaper.

Its aken me That long to even want to write this mail. SO... can you guys help and perhaps change my less than cherished opinion about Mozilla...? I hope so but im not holding my breath if i may say so ;o)

Hello,

in our company we use firefox esr 78.2 and have blocked the installation of add-ons with our gpo-settings. But we need the openh264-codec-plugin to work (for video conferencing). Is there a chance to only allow / whitelist the openh264-plugin, so firefox can complete this codec-installation ?

We need something like the chrome-policy ExtensionInstallWhitelist: https://www.chromium.org/administrators/policy-list-3#ExtensionInstallWhitelist
