Hello. I use sync on two devices only, a PC and an android device. Today it has ceased to sync data to and from the android device. It just says "Last sync: never" even after clicking the sync button. The only thing I found online was to not have over 5000 bookmarks (which I don't) and to update Firefox. (I'm on the latest version)

So far I've tried clearing the data of the app, which didn't work so I tried reinstalling it entirely. That also didn't help. I've removed all duplicate devices from my account settings too.

Not sure what more I can do

EDIT:

Fixed itself of course only after I post here. I waited a few hours too..

'Support" in gPlayStore said to come here for help. So far, NO JOY.

When you suddenly stripped away access to about:config, you also wiped out my previously working PROXY SETTINGS? WHY??? What gave you the right to screw that up as part of "updating???"

Rather than fascisticsally removing about:config, WHY NOT CREATE A MECHANISM TO BACK-UP, RESTORE, RESTORE-TO-LAST-KNOWN-GOOD and OFFLINE EDIT :config SETTINGS. THAT would be USEFUL IDIOT-PROOFING, rather than taking away about:cofig.

If idiots are wrecking their FFforA by breaking things in about:config, LET THEM UNINSTALL/REINSTALL and START OVER FROM SCRATCH.

Why PUNISH EVERYONE ELSE???

The Devs are smarter than this. So are Power Users. Forcing Nightly and/or Beta is overbearing and arrogant.

Please Quit The Constant Update Windows until the newer Firefox versions actually work for W7!!!! Remember , W7 computers are not able to get the updates for make whatever is making all site buttons and switches disapprear. To new Firefox is also like Malware, very time consuming to uninstall, and I only can go to the latest full version I had saved. I have been a loyal user and contributer since the beginning, so Please Make Forefox Polite Again!

Hi,

I have reinstalled my Debian, keeping of course my `/home`. New Firefox version is `68.12.0esr`. A new profile has been created, but I need the old one which I can set as default in the profile manager at the url `about:profiles`, but Firefox tells me "Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history.....". So, it seems I need to install the same version of Firefox I had before, but I don't know which one it was, and I would like to avoid to make many trials.

Is there a mean to know which Firefox version is associated to a given profile?

How group policy work for browser.cache.disk.parent_directory

Some years ago I pointed my Firefox cache drive to H:\Firefox. When I updated to 68esr I set the value in the GPO to the same folder. about:config shows the preference as locked.

Recently I decided to move the cache folder to the same drive as the profile folder. So I edited the group policy to point to F:\users\Tanya\Firefox. Updated the group policy and opened firefox. It continued to use H:\Firefox.

So set the policy to not configured and about:config showed h:\firefox. So as a test I set the group policy to iamcountessconsuelabananahammock (Not even a valid path name). No complaints, but firefox continued to write to h:\firefox.

So it seems the only purpose of the group policy is to lock the value, and the content of the GPO is not relevant at all. Is this by design

I recently copied my Old Firefox profile to another folder and refreshed my Firefox Dev Edition browser. After refreshing, I copied all of the content of my old Firefox profile to the new default profile and then started the browser. Upon starting it, the browser was working with all of my previous add-ons. But whenever I close the browser and open it again, the icons of the add-ons at the overflow menu are not showing though there is space for the add-ons. Whenever I click at the add-ons, the error that 'Access to file was denied' - `The file at moz-extension://b408b31d-945f-43cb-881e-b1f4071942b6/index.html is not readable` shows up. I tried it with creating other profile folders and then copying my old profile data but it still always happens.

Any help?
