Sync is changing my preferences as I move between computers

When I set my preferences for Firefox on Windows, I always make these two settings: 1.) Options --> General --> [check] Always ask me where to save files 2.) Options --> Security --> [uncheck] Remember logins for sites

Recently, I have noticed that as I move between computers where I use my Firefox sync account, these two settings are being changed without my intervention. I suspect that Firefox sync is responsible.

Even when I set the preferences correctly on one computer (like my laptop), when I go another computer (say, my desktop), the settings have been changed.

This is happening between several Windows computers in which I use the same Firefox sync account. I also use Firebox on Android. However, Settings --> Privacy --> Remember logins is unchecked on Android. I only seem to be experiencing the problem with Firefox sync on Windows computers.

I would really prefer that once I set a preference for Firefox, that it wouldn't change without my intervention.

I had Firefox 50.1.0 and when i tried to update to 51.0 i had to do it 2 times, because the first time failed when the browser restarted, and the same happened when i tried to update from 51.0 to 51.0.1, it was frustrating. When i was watching a video at FF 51.0 & 51.0.1 at YouTube, at fullscreen, i had the Firefox contextual menu opened and i pressed spacebar, so i saw a flash with the window controls (Minimize, Restore and Close) at the top of the screen, but they're from older version of Windows, (like Windows 95) style. The last is i see 2 Firefox on the Windows 10 programs installed list, and i have been having the same issue with Thunderbird. I see now Firefox 50.1.0 and Firefox 51.0.1 and Thunderbird 38.8.0 and Thunderbird 45.6.0 and i really don't understand why is happening this. I hope Mozilla can solve this and someone can explain me.

Thank you so much and sorry for the inconveniences.

Best regards.

Since FireFox updated itself to 51.0.1 last week I've been getting frequent blue screen crashes with my system rebooting itself, the majority of which occur while reading or replying to emails. Sometimes I'm lucky to finish typing a sentence before a blue screen crash occurs. I've turned off the automatic updates (opting for the "prompt me when updates are available" option. That won't fix the blue screen crashes though. I need to roll Firefox to the previous version to 51.0.1. BTW, I've checked my hard drive with Norton Utilities checkdisk which found and corrected several disk errors. I also de-fragmented my boot drive which was 34% fragmented (obviously I hadn't defragged it in a really long time!). Unfortunately the blue screen message takes up the full screen and flashes past so quickly I don't have time to read it before it vanishes and my system reboots. Since this only occurs while I'm using Firefox, and only started with 51.0.1 the problem almost certainly is being caused by this latest version of Firefox. My guess is that it contains "stuff" in it that isn't compatible with the version of Windows I am using which is why I need to roll back to the previous version.

Pretty much as in my query.Everything works ok,surfing,vid dld,(except for Ant vid dlder) etc,but I can't use the google search box because of the "problem loading page" message which suggests that I have the wrong url for that page..Thing is,I don't know if there was a FFx update in the update of 3 days ago.Never had this problem before in about 6 yrs of using FFx. Downloadhelper for vids works ok though.That's about all really.

This is about Firefox not from Firefox. Seems to originate from Entrust.net which I never applied for. Trouble started after I downloaded Windows 10 and caught a bunch of trouble from Yahoo, then tried to update Java and got extra sneaky stuff with it. I use Kaspersky, which is apparently sending the message about you and they have taken over my computer trying to fix everything for several hours yesterday and today but still getting the message that Firefox certificate is basically expired. Whatever a certificate is. BTW box with message is still up in the corner, don't know if you can see it.

Running Firefox oder ssh with X11 redirecting crashes since 51.0.1 or 51.0 when I close one of the opened windows. This happens with a new profile as well as in safe mode. Running locally don't causes those crashes.

AbortMessage: ###!!! ABORT: RenderFreePicture: RenderBadPicture (invalid Picture parameter): file /build/firefox-RuETGa/firefox-51.0.1+build2/toolkit/xre/nsX11ErrorHandler.cpp, line 147

BTW: Using your Crash Reporter is not possible because it does not use the configured proxy but tries to connect directly.

After a recent update on my Linux/Ubuntu system, all select > options have a background color of black and the text enlarged to almost double the size (background and text size for the select boxes were not affected). IE, Chrome, and even the edition of Firefox on my wife's computer were not affected and are still showing the options with a proper white background with reduced type size. What gives? The website is bhardin-rps.com. I tried to post a screen shot, but it won't upload.
