I have changed servers and would like to change my e-mail address on sync so my old e-mail sync could be transfered to my new e-mail sync.

I have lots of saved bookmarks and passwords in my old sync address and it won't let me upload them to my new address because it wants me to use old e-mail address to berify ownership and my old address was discontinued when I changed servers. It wouldn't let me just transfer e-mail sync. I had a crash and reloaded windows 7 and downloaded firefox but it wouldn't let me sync because I couldn't confirm my old e-mail address with old server, as that address was discontinued.

My version of FF is up todate it tells me. But I think it has become corrupted.

When I d/l a file it is downloaded in Downloads as a zipped HTML file NOT a data file which it should be (see attached). I then unpack it and when I try to open it, it reverts to firefox and begins opening tabs at a great rate of knots. I have to 'end task' in Task Manager to stop it.

A browser is a tool, not my mommy. On the Firefox startup page, I am told by my web browser of choice to "go take a break" (eat something healthy like an apple), I'm told how to protest political issues... reminded to register to vote and also reminded that mostly old people voted in the last election.

I don't want to see these political messages, or ANY life advice from my favorite web browser ever again. Just like I don't need my couch or my microwave to tell me what job to apply for.

How do I get rid of these ridiculous, obnoxious, over-reaching nanny state messages on the start page?

Tried to change this but unable as it wants me to sign in and sends me a revalidation link. However as this is an old email address I won't received the link. Can't sign in with second email as it wants me to sign in with primary email.

Unable to set up new account as this email address is already in use (presumably as mt secondary email address on the old account) So what do I do?

Also its so annoying the security seems to have been set so high that every page tells me certificate not valid includi9ng firefox own page

When I attempted to access certain sites, I received the attached loading page instead-from that page but also from other attempted sites. I was told that I should edit my https settings in my browser to solve the issue. The exact quote being 'set your privacy settings to https'. Unfortunately, even though I was refered to using Firefox, I still cannot find what this setting is supposed to refer to. Can anyone help please? It says to contact the website owners but I can't actually contact them without getting on the site to figure out their contacts first >_>

I have the latest version of Firefox loaded and synced on several computers, all running fully updated Windows 10, and Google news displays correctly on all but one, my primary desktop, a Dell XPS 8900 that seems to be working just fine. Only on this computer, the left hand menu shows shadow commands over the menu items, such as play_newsstand over the menu item top stories. What setting, that is not synced, could possibly cause this to happen and how can I change it?

So I am not a coder for anything special. I just write basic HTML for formatting on Deviantart. I'm having an issue where Firefox automatically closes my HTML tags without me wanting it to.

EXAMPLE:
<*blockquote>text
more text
more text
<*/blockquote>

DOES NOT WORK. Firefox automatically changes it to the following:

<*blockquote>text<*/blockquote>
more text
more text

I need to know how to disable this if possible, otherwise I have to switch browsers because this is a very tedious issue for me when I'm trying to write simple HTML code.

Hi, whenever I restart firefox only three windows will be restored from the previous session, even if there were more windows open. The tabs themselves are all restored just fine, it's only the number of windows that's limited to three.

This issue started occuring after I upgraded to "firefox quantum" due to the tabmix plus addon (which I used as a session manager) no longer being available.

Is there any way to make firefox restore ALL previous windows that were open during the previous session?

On typically 90% of occasions, when try to upload photographs to my Flickr account, I get a message 'file timed out' and 'Go Back and Fix Errors'. The file (photography) is typically about 11 MB, in size!

This problem has never occurred, when using other browsers, such as 'MS Explorer', 'MS Edge', or 'Goggle Chrome'!

Appreciate your advice
