Hello, I always have Sync turned on, on my Laptop (PC) and my iPhone. When I reinstalled Firefox, everything was synced except my bookmarks. I have all my bookmarks on my iPhone. How do I get my bookmarks back on my Laptop? Can I somehow export my bookmarks on my iPhone, which has Firefox mobile, and email them to myself on my Laptop? I would really appreciate it very much if anyone could assist me this this issue. Thank you.

I set up Firefox Sync on my iMac and MacBook Pro and it works flawlessly.

I installed Firefox Home on my iPhone. I selected "I Have A Sync Account" I entered my user name and password. I have never set a "Secret Phrase" I used the Sync Key, both with and without the "dashes".

I search online to solve this problem. It said I could reset my "Secret Phrase" in the preferences for Firefox Sync. I did not see this option.

How do I find my Secret Phrase or reset it?

Thanks.

Private server (sync only, based on Weave Minimal) not working with Firefox Home.

Trying to sync with Weave Minimal Server http://tobyelliott.wordpress.com/2009/09/11/weave-minimal-server/] does not work: FFHome asks for /weave/user/1.0/username/node/weave (404, since the server does not implement registration functions) and stops there, instead of trying to get /weave/1.0/username/info/collections which should be the sync url.

It does not appear that there is a Firefox browser for the iPhone. Correct me if I'm wrong, though.

If there isn't a Firefox browser for my iPhone, then how can I get the firefox sync to work on my iPhone? Right now, I have all of my computers using the sync, so I can have all my bookmarks across of all my devices, and I want this capability on my iPhone as well. Anyway to do that?

I am having trouble with the search bar on Yahoo's main page as of this afternoon. Yahoo is my homepage. When I first start Firefox, usually I can put something in to search on Yahoo, and hit "enter" and it works fine. But if I go back to Yahoo's main page (regardless of whether that is the back button, clicking the home button, or typing it in myself) and type something else in and hit "enter" or click the "Search Web" button . . . nothing happens. It's like the entire search feature is disabled once I revisit the page. Sometimes I don't even get the ability search right from the start.

I have restarted my computer, cleared my browser cache, and turned off hardware acceleration, as suggested for similar problems in other forums. None of those have solved the problem. The only add-on I ever run is Adblock and I have used it constantly, up until today, with no issues. Yahoo works fine in Firefox safe mode and I'm not having any problems with it at all in Safari, so I know there is not a problem with Yahoo's site itself.

I have Firefox 44.0 and am running Mac OS Yosemite 10.10. I prefer Firefox as my browser and Yahoo as my search engine, so please don't give me "fixes" that involve changing those things. I want it to work as it always has.

I am getting more and more spam messages in my spam folder every day. This morning there were 62! I am a Mac user using the Firefox browser . Last week I started using Firefox's Private Window, but that has not helped. How do I stop this? The email address in question is [email removed by mod] but this Support System registration would not let me enter that email address- kept saying "Use a valid email address"! If I cannot solve this problem I shall have to close that account. I am attaching a screenshot taken just minutes ago. Of course it cannot show all 62 spam messages. Zoelle is my name, but this Support System would not accept that either so I am using Zoell. This system says it is "uploading images" however, it's been "Uploading" for over five minutes!!! Is this a joke??? Is there any human being at the other end of this page???????? I feel as though I have fallen into cyberspace hell.

Other major companies are making the transition to get around Apple's insane rules for the App Store. Cydia is 100% free and legal. I don't think you realize how many iPhone users would jump on downloading the mobile version of Firefox.

Please consider this!

Some months ago I read some articles about a version of Firefox Home optimized for the iPad coming up 'soon'.

What is the status of this project ? I love it to be able to share my bookmarks thanks to the Firefox Sync, but on the iPad, the Firefox Home for iPhone application could be better looking.

Thanks,

Stephane
