Hello,

I've been using my own Sync 1.5 server since January without having any issue until this week.

I am unable to sync my clients, getting the "Sync encountered an error while synching: Unknown error, Sync will try again automatically."

Here's the log: https://pastebin.mozilla.org/8836193

The problem seems to happen at line 101 (on pastebin).

Here's some more info about my setup.

Syncserver 1.5.2 installed on a local server running on Linux.

I have 1 Windows client, 2 Linux clients. None of them can sync. All uses Firefox 38.0.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Phil

Just recently I started having a problem (in the last week or so). I set my default Amazon kindle device. I buy a Kindle book. The default kindle device is reset (none of the devices are the default one). I have cleared cache and history. No affect. Tried this on another PC and got the same error. Tried it in IE and no error - default device remained set. So there is something in maybe the latest version of FF that is causing that default device setting to be lost? (I have not been able to determine exactly where the default Kindle device setting is kept, but it seems to be in the browser since FF does not work and IE does work on my PC).

The Reminderfox add-on is in my profile, (Users\AppData|Roaming) but it is not in my add-on or extentions list. I lost it during the day, while I haven't updated anything or closed Firefox. One minute the add-on was there, the next it was gone.

Every time I restart my MacBook Pro running OS X 10.10.3 Firefox spontaneously opens to the file:///Library/Application%20Support/Adobe/Help/en_US/Dreamweaver/9.0_Extending/help.html?content=dwr_floating_panels_fp_12.html URL.

I have no idea why.

It seems to run normally otherwise.

Is there some way I can stop this?

I am running Firefox 38.0.5.

So every once in a while, I have a bunch of tabs open, FF freezes up and it restarts or Windoze forces a restart. Fine except when an an FF update is staged, or like this time, I lose my 30-40 tabs because I apparently need to know that Pocket has come to Firefox. Restore previous sessions grayed out, I seem to be toast. Getting sick of it now, losing most are fine but I really wanted some of them sitting there without having to be bookmarked, Any way of getting my tabs back when this happens almost once a week now?

When I go to the google homepage and begin typing my search, it jumps from the middle of the screen to the top (presumably to make way for the results).

However, as I continue to type, I very often get a shopping banner that pops up right over the search box, immediately stopping me from typing [see attached image]. I then have to hit the 'X' on the right hand side of the banner before I can continue typing my search.

It's incredibly annoying, as sometimes it will keep triggering every time I click back in the search box.

It seems to be triggered if what you're typing relates to something you could buy, so for instance, if you were to type in the name of a book or film, it would pop up with a link to ebay or amazon, and give you the best price for that item.

It's not in my add-ons. I'm on XP, using Firefox 38.0.5

Is this adware or something Mozilla have added, thinking it would be a useful tool?

Hi

I use the windows On screen keyboard 95% of the time. And I like to place it generally in the middle of the window when using it. When I need to type into the search box, and even though the On screen keyboard is set to Always On Top, it always goes UNDER the dropdown search suggestions list, which blocks my ability to keep typing. I then have to stop typing and move the OSK to the right or left beyond the right or left edge of the search box, or move it to the very top of the window or very bottom out of the way of the dropdown. This then highlights the text I've already typed, forcing me to click at the end of it or start over (once I've moved the OSK out of it's way). Even if I have search suggestions turned off there is still a dropdown that blocks the OSK (the position/size/length of the search box along the top and the position of the OSK are where I like them bc of my poor vision). The address bar does the same thing. I want to know if there is a way to keep the dropdown search box UNDER the OSK while I'm typing? It's a long question I apologize, but it's a bit wordy to describe. see the photo and I'm sure you'll understand what I'm talking about. The OSK is always set to "Always On Top" in Win 7 prem.

thanks for your helpful reply mark

I already checked this post (https://support.mozilla.org/es/questions/999164) where somebody had the same problem on Win 7, Firefox 28, but the answer there is not possible for me as my firefox doesn't have those configurations :(

I also disabled all of my add-ons, but still not working :'(

Any help, is welcome :)

For long time keep saying looks like your using an older version of Firefox. Numerous times I have tried to install Adobe Flash plug in, both with Firefox and at Adobe site. I am on Linux 32 bit, not 64, all details I find are for 64 bit. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/759565 I think the problem may lie here but I do not see the solution for 32 bit. Looks like maybe 2 plug ins? Anyway I need help. It's problematic with all the extra steps with the issue as you can imagine. I tried starting from scratch with Firefox, does not work, seems more like 52 card pick up....if you know that game. I'd like a solution if you have one. Thanks.
