How can I retrieve lost bookmarks? Syncing between two Firefox browsers replaced my newer bookmarks with the bookmarks of my less-often used browser. I expected the newer bookmarks to appear on the other browser. But instead the more-often used browser now has the same bookmarks as the less-oft used one.

i just downloaded the new version onto my macbook pro, and have lost all my bookmarks and other settings which is very annoying. It wants me to sync with another device but I DON'T WANT to do that !! how can I avoid this and restore my settings/bookmarks etc or barring that, dump the new version and go back to the old one which worked fine which hopefully still has all my settings ?

I downloaded my PayPal monthly statement PDF and Acrobat Reader can't open it, saying it is an unsupported file type or damaged. This also happens when I download a new copy of an earlier monthly statement that Acrobat can opens just fine. If I download these same statements using the Chrome browser, Acrobat Reader opens them just fine. Acrobat was able to open PDFs I downloaded from two other websites.

So it appears to be a problem with PDFs requested from PayPal using Firefox. I was unable to find a way to post this issue on PayPal's website, so I am posting it here in case anyone else has had the probem and was able to resolve it.

I am using Firefox 80.0 (64-bit), on Windows 10 Pro version 2004 build 19041.450, installed on 8/22/2020.

Yesterday I started having trouble accessing YouTube from Firefox. It will play a video I have bookmarked, but it won't show channel name, comments, or any suggested videos. If I open youtube.com directly I just see gray boxes where the videos should be and can't click on anythings.

Using safe mode didn't fix the problem, and I only have two active add-ons, neither of which have changed recently.

I'm trying to change my Firefox Account password.

I enter my existing password, then enter the new password twice.

I hit "Change" and nothing happens - the page just sits there, no indication of any change.

The old password remains.

Is there anyplace I can compliment the developers of FireFox v80 on Android for the ingenious upgrade to access of saved login data, that makes it impossible to copy/paste login information from the settings into a login form?

The old way, that was no good, made it possible to copy from saved login data to a login form when prefill does not happen due to subtle differences in domain names used on mobile devices vs. desktop devices. Before v80. the saved login data would be in one tab and the login form in another, so you could switch between the two, carrying the username and password in the clipboard for pasting into the form.

The new way, which is much better, makes that impossible, because the saved login data is not displayed within a tab, but instead is displayed in a four-layer-deep overlay, which blows away the login form on sites using javascript-driven popups for login forms.

The net effect is what used to be possible with a hassle now is impossible. I guess this new way is a bigger hassle, but the new way still is better, otherwise it would not be new, right?

Is there a way to communicate this directly to the developers?

Using v.80.0.1 (according to FF/Help/About) on Win10-64bit. Cannot log into godaddy.com. Error message is "Yikes! Something went wrong. Please, try again later." Works fine with Chrome, so have to believe it's in FF. Tried changing various settings in Options/Privacy& Security. Anyone else having issues, or better yet, a solution??

Thanks in advance.
