Months ago, I had some tabs open on my PC. After I haven't opened my browser for months, these tabs was no longer show up on the Firefox on PC. But when I connected my Firefox account on another device and synced my history, those tabs appeared in the "Open Tabs" again. Those make my "Open Tabs" verbose and difficult to get the information I need. But since I can't see these tabs on my PC, I can't close them. To remove those tabs, I tried reconnecting my account and clearing the local datas on my Firefox on my PC, but it didn't work.

Why is it necessary to authenticate Lockwise frequently on my 2 IOS devices? A dozen times in May and 6 times this month. It happens right when I need to use the app and this activity is delayed by having to authenticate and re-synch. Is something wrong or is this a "feature".

Thanks,

David

Trying to scan from my a53 to pair things up and it keeps thinking I used my phones camera despite using the button in the app from the url bar on android. Just like it says to do here. I can't for the life of figure out why it thinks I'm using the camera when I only did that once then figured out to use the app(really wish it was also in the menu next to the tab count as well....).

OK I have been trying to go 100% Firefox for just a few months but with privacy and security as primary directive. It would be wonderful to just be in ine well moderated browser ecosystem and actually being able to have my preferences, interest and personal information centralized with eventual goal of digitally divorcing tech companies from my personal data. I still have to use a lot of different devies with varying OS and it literally took me two years to help Apple fix an AppleId problem. Now that I have that sorted out I have been hoping to move away from gmail entirely and eventually have my own mailserver but using icloud now for macs and pcs.


At a minimum it seems like even after forced manual I have not properly sync an imac with windows 10 PC. So to keep it simple I stay there but this morning when I typed into Firefox on my iMac its was google search not Duckduckgo. Not only have I synced it in firefox but icloud should be redudant and I had removed google from list of potential search engines. There seems to be some way for a hostile takeover of these settings and google connstant agressive intrusions asking for data is not just wrong or annoying its simply impossible to not have facebook or google track me beyond california digital privacy standards. The worst offender may be youtube. I want to fix the browser and sync my stuff. But I am also looking for extensions that will help me do that better.

I am pretty thorough and now just want to learn more and would like to believe one can have a semblance of privacy but it seems like it will be an adversarial experience when the companies that do can rollback privacy with clever tv ads. The 'providers' clearly do not give hoot about rules, preferences and laws designed to protect people's rights.. That is what is particulary frustrating. It is not a fair fight but a good one. I guess what I am wondering is if there are specific modules you could add to detect maybewhen an event like change in search engine occurs and whether logs may exist as to how or why the change was made. Even if it was an accidental quick through a popup in chromium or edge where I was always being cued to come back to Chrome. Logging out doesnt always seem to work so i tried syncing with and chrome with more or less same results. Very little actual control or at least a tendency to revert back to the data miners preferences over mine. I want to help stop that.

After my PC had a blue screen, I reinstalled Windows. Since I use Firefox Snc, I relied on it. Unfortunately, I had to realize that after reinstalling and successfully logging in to fIrefox sync, all my data is gone. He says that he has successfully syncronized, but all bookmarks are missing as well as the settings.
