So every time I open Firefox, it starts at Windowed mode, not in full screen mode. Right clicking the shortcut to select maximized in the Run section does not work for me. I would have to double click the top bar every time to get it to be full screen.

I installed Firefox on a new device and initiated a sync for multi-account containers - it promptly synced in the wrong direction. It eliminated all customization from what should have been the source (the existing device), overwriting it with the default settings of a first-time installation. I was quite surprised.

This leads me to a couple of questions.

1. Is there a sync version history or any way of rolling back a sync? 2. Is there a way to explicitly choose the sync direction?

Quite honestly it is very confusing that there is no reference whatsoever to which way an initial sync will go. I was hesitant to risk this, decided to trust it knew what to do (even though it didn't give me any indication that it did) and lost my gamble.

Firefox knows the device names, so can I suggest some basic reassuring UX be inserted into this process with something like "Initiate sync from X-DEVICE-FIREFOX to Y-DEVICE-FIREFOX?". A bit of clarity would be helpful here, as well as a way to roll back a syncing mistake instead of just having to gamble possibly losing hard-won customization with no going back.

Or have I completely stumbled past some obvious place where everything I'm requesting exists and is accessible already?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

After the recent update the colors of the drop down menus has changed. File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools and Help. Prior to this it was white background with black writing. Now it is black background with white writing. I am using Abstract Electric theme which is a dark theme but prior to this I was able to have the white background and black text. Can't figure out how to change it, I am sure it is something simple but for the life of me can't alter it. I don't want any colors to change except the colors of the drop down menus. Please help.

I lost all the bookmarks suddenly where i was using this browser for office work, there was no action taken from my end like deletion or any upgrade, however suddenly when i start machine today, i found all bookmarks lost. To restore backup I entered to Profile --> bookmark backup this file is extension JSONLZ4 which is not visible during restore bookmark.

This is quite important to recover these suddenly lost all bookmarks, so is there any way or support available?

Unfortunately this is first time i am facing such kind of issue, So kindly also let me know if we should trust mozilla firefox as default browser and to save bookmarks?

Thanks & Regards

Hello, I have a desktop and a laptop. I want to sync my firefox data (tabs, history, etc) between them. Now the problem.

Only one device shows up under my account's "Connected Services". Each time I sync or change the profile name on the dekstop or on the laptop they overwrite each other.
i.e. I will have under "Connected Services" a single client with name "desktop", then i go to my laptop and enable sync with name "laptop" and now on my account there is only client "laptop". if I go to my desktop and change the name of the desktop sync client to "desktop2" and update, then i will only have "desktop2" under "Connected Services". How can i connect both my laptop and desktop to my account to sync data between them????

I suspect it could have something to do with me cloning my firefox installation from the laptop to teh desktop and they having the same "ID"? if that makes sense?. ( I cloned the entire C: drive of the laptop to a new drive and use that as a C: drive for the desktop)

Firefox have closed to all Feeback. I just wanted to tell them the reasons that after being loyal to Mozilla I think since 1995 I finally switched to Goggle Chrome next year. There newest version was just awful. Incredibly slow, glitchy one of the worst things and worst decisions was to get rid of Remind Fox and add on that I found unbelivably helpful and they just decided to discontinue it and there is nothing else like it other adds on just don't do the same stuff my son loved it too. And lastly there are addons to help hearing impaired users on Chrome and Firefox doesn't even have a single one. It is also just insanely slow to load now. The new version was a tremendous downgrade.

In other 'apps' on windows 10 the tooltip is above the pointer or below it. In Firefox it is directly under the mouse. So usually any tooltip popup in firefox is unreadable, mostly. One can infer the content sometimes.

How do i change that? Or what is the problem?

I'll try and include a screenshot. Hmm, the screenshot didn't include the mouse. I think i can do a video with OBS and then a screenshot of that.

Interesting, somehow in the screenshot from the obs video it shows 2 mouse pointers. One is very small and the tooltip is just below that, but the other is larger (the one I see) and it covers the tooltip. I'm using the standard windows mouse settings for larger mouse pointers. I just tried using the 'old' mouse settings to select a larger mouse and it behaves the same way. If I select size: 1 in the new size settings, and the old settings i have 'windows system' mouse, then the tooltip is under the pointer but the size is too small for the pointer. I then changed to another mouse setting in the old selector "inverted extra large" and you can see the tooltip because of the 'inverted' nature of the pointer, but the tooltip is still partially covered by the pointer.

Ideally the choice would be to put the tooltip above the mouse pointer rather than below. When you increase the size of the mouse pointer it only increases down, not up. The point of the pointer is always at the top.

I'm going to try one more thing, increasing the size in the new settings after having selected "inverted", but i recall that it changes to the new pointer style. Ah, there is an inverted setting in the new options as well, and if i select that instead of the gray color i was using then one can read the tooltip through the mouse.

So, then my question becomes "can I put the tooltip above the mouse pointer?" Because it is still covered by the mouse pointer as is. I don't see anything in 'about:config', so far.

Thank you.

FIrefox has really slowed down over the last three months, to the point where it just wont load pages unless I clear the history. This is especially the case with google web apps. I did the firefox reset, turned off extentions, and this isn't a computer issue since its not present on other browsers. I dont want to give up on firefox, but this is a deal breaker if it cant do its core functionality. other people must be having this problem and leaving in droves!
