I have alot of open tabs on mobile phone and want to view - and then delete - each of the tabs on my desktop because it's massively slowing down my mobile. I am able to open on my desktop the synced tabs - although I can only open them either one-by-one, or the entire lot of 1,000 of them - but cannot seem to delete singular ones or a few tabs at a time when are no longer needed. Is there a way to delete a synced tab individually from a connected device that's NOT the device where the tab is currently open/ originally saved? Thanks!

Like in Firefox Focus, trying to access local storage using `/sdcard` is denied or returns an error, however on the Firefox common, accessing /sdccard storage is pretty simple. Although that's pretty helpful in certain cases, however I would like that to manually disable. Are there any ways to do so, such that putting in /sdcard in the address bar returns a N/A result. (:

In Network settings, I have "Use system proxy settings" but when I change these (after connecting to a VPN), firefox does not pick up the change and I have to manually go to Network changes and switch to a different option and back for FF to pick up the new system proxy settings. Chrome picks up the changes automatically.

Is this a bug? Is there any faster way to achieve this? (For instance some addon that does this with a single click?)

Thank you!

I have problems with multiple sites that claim that third-party cookies are blocked and do not work even though though the Enhanced Tracking Protection is disabled for the site (the shield icon is grey and striked-through). In particular it is teams.microsoft.com and Instapaper (their saving bookmarklet sends me always to a site reading "enable unrestricted third-party cookie access for www.instapaper.com" - though this might be a different issue than Teams).

I have read https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enhanced-tracking-protection-firefox-desktop?redirectslug=enable-and-disable-cookies-website-preferences&redirectlocale=en-US#w_how-to-tell-when-firefox-is-protecting-you and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-say-cookies-are-blocked-unblock-them (trying even to "forget" the teams website; not doing the full wipe out of everything).

How to troubleshoot / fix this? I am a technical person so I can dig into it if just somebody points me in the right direction...

Thank you!

One of my network web pages suddenly won't load on Firefox:

Hi.

Can someone please tell me why my personal network site - https://www.myanimatorssketchclub.com

- is suddenly not loading on my Firefox browser? It is hosted by Mighty Networks. 

I have not had trouble with it before - for months - and none of my other regularly used sites fail to load. I note too that the same network site loads with no problems on other browser. Even refreshing, restarting or opening in 'Safe Mode" on Firefox does not change things.

I have attached a screen capture to show what I see.

I hope this can be fixed as using Firefox is really important to me and I don't want to have to move to another browser if this proves a permanent thing.

Thanks for your help!

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at support.mozilla.org.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Hi there,

we are running Firefox ESR 78.1.0 (64bit) on our company computers (Windows 10).

I also tried to open a linkedin profile within firefox 79 on a mac, same issue here.

Any held is much appreciated.

Firefox 78.1 ESR W7

Is there any way to get the menu bar to have a unified appearance? Solid background mixed with a transparent one is not very nice looking. It would look much better if the solid background were also transparent. Anyone have a .css or other solution?
