System 1: Windows 8 64 - bit System 2: Windows 7 64 - bit Firefox Version: 29.0 (on both)

SCENARIO: I installed firefox on system 1 and imported all bookmarks from IE. Then I set up sync. Next I installed Firefox on System 2 and set up sync and it asked me to select one of three following options: (PS: not the exact phrases) Merge Server and Client BOokmarks Use Client Use Server

I selected Use Server as I didn't have any bookmarks on System 2; I got the bookmarks.

PROBLEM: Now when I add a bookmark on System2 and let it sync, it is not reflected in my System 1 and vice versa.

What do I do to achieve this?

HELP Thanks

I cannot sync my firefox after a format of my HDD. I am synced on my android phone, but cannot get a reset password for my account. I cannot get to my addons nor bookmarks. Reset does not work, new account on my email doesnt do either. "Attempt limit exceeded." is all I get from firefox. I am one step from getting rid of it after many, many years of our relationship. I pitty that firefox is getting slower and slower, I get more and more problems, and still hang on to it. Today I couldt find any useful help. Its quite disturbing. Maybe it has come to "Attempt limit exceeded."?

Please help.

I stupidly did a Refresh on Windows 8.1 when having trouble with Clean Up disk not working. I know that i need to find the hidden files from other questions on here, and have checked the box for this, but how do i actually access these files, to get them back onto my Desktop. have lost Firefox history and bookmarks,my Avast Security,etc etc. I believe that i can retrieve them, is this right? I am not terribly computer literate but can follow instructions if they are kept simple. many thanks anyone.

Before I updated from firefox 29.1 to 30.0, it was always possible to save/download internet sites with save as option. The german domain heise.de is one of my favorite internet sites. When I activate the offline mode in firefox he won´t save/create the .htm file. Reason is I won´t make big traffic on my network to save internet sites. I wish to download them at the first time I load them into the browser.

Thanks for giving us the Sync function. But, never have I seen any mention of applying this to Sync bokmarks among Windows User Accounts or Mac Profiles. I am running Windows 8 (soon to go to 8.1 Update - - or, maybe, to Windows 7 Professional, if M$ cannot straighten out and fly right with 8.1U) on the HP notebook, and Mac OS X Lion (soon to go up to Mavericks or Yosemite) and I would like to take the good advice and do most of my browsing in the non-admin users instead of the Admins, but ... when I add some Bookmarks in one User, I needto find the new Bookmarks available in the other as soon as I switch Users. Please advise; someone expert in Windows/Firefox, and someone (maybe the same?) for Mac/Firefox. Your helpful assistance will be appreciated.

I tried reseting,deleting cache and history,removing add ons and re-adding Firefox as an exception in my firewall but Facebook still has a problem loading.

Server not found

Firefox can't find the server at www.facebook.com.

   Check the address for typing errors such as ww.example.com instead of www.example.com
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

it is the only site that is abusing me this way,please assist-

Only trigger I can seem to find is something mentioned in another help ticket that sounds like a slightly different problem. When Firefox is open for a while without loading any web pages, it suddenly stops being able to do so. When I attempt to load a new page it displays the loading circle and a white page, but no more. The browser is not frozen; scrolling through pre-opened tabs and browsing pre-opened pages works fine.

Restarting my computer is so far the only way to "fix" this, but it only works until the next time it occurs.

I have tried clearing my cache, restarting Firefox, and refreshing Firefox to no avail. If I close Firefox after the issue occurs, I cannot re-open it without restarting my computer. It tells me that Firefox is already running but not responding. When I go into Task Manager, Firefox is not there. It's not running.

This issue is exclusive to Firefox. I have Chrome as a backup browser which works just fine when Firefox is not.
