Gradually, the game Taonga Island became unplayably slow as you started insisting more often that I sync my accounts, mails, etc..

I will NEVER sync because I do not intend to give you in a neat wrapper what others pay you for, I want to remain anonymous as much as possible, and I certainly do not intend to give ANYBODY a neat package of linked and authenticated accounts etc. about myself. That is why I am not on FB, Twitter, LinkedIn etc etc..

STOP demanding I do this SYNC shit. Or I will tell everyone I work with, play with, etc to NEVER us any Mozilla products as sooner or later, they are going to blackmail you.

I have checked to see the update status of Firefox.

I am informed that it is up to date and is running V93.0 64 bit. It is my understanding that V95.0 is available. Am I correct or doing something wrong?

Thank you for the help.

I have security cameras set up outside the house and I need D-Link programming to operate them through my windows 10 PC and they claim that to operate them I would need 52ESR to make the program work. My question is can I download 52ESR and still have 93.0 (64bit) on my computer. I know it sounds a rather silly question, but the cameras are on 24hour record and that would mean that 52ESR would be running 24 hours a day and I am currently using 93.0 for my daily needs. I am just an old fogey trying to get along and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Vince

Have update from 89.0.2 to 93.0 today, and like many others it seems been caught out by the assurance that passwords & logons would automatically be transferred. I've found the advice about copying key4.db & logins.json from the Old Firefox data folder that has appeared on my desktop. The problem is I can see key4.db but there is no trace of logins.json. I have show hidden files enabled. Have tried searching the folder and still got no trace. NB there was also no logins.json in new profile folder until I created an account for this support posting, although I realise it may not create until a log on is saved.

The issue is the missing passwords are computer generated and only saved in my firefox browser, and there were definitely some saved with usernames etc.

I noticed a comment that logons.json is a text document. I only have 4 of those - AlternateServices, pkcs11, SecurityPreloadState & SiteSecurityService State. I assume none of these could be logins under a different name?

I am trying to restore the take screenshot icon. The suggested remedies do not work. Take screen shot does not come up as an option, no matter on which part of the page I right press. Also, control + shift + s does not work. Finally, the screenshot icon does not show up in my list of icons to be transferred to the toolbar, so I can't do that either. How do I fix this? I use screenshot a lot, especially the option to take a shot of part of a screen.

I have recently, last 60 to 90 days, keep getting 3 (three) search engines (in the attached image) that I cannot remove. I can remove them locally for the instance that FireFox is active, however, when I close FireFox and open FireFox again, go into settings/search/search shortcuts/search engines - review the search engine window there they are again.

Yahoo by template search Freshy search Sponsored search by quickforms

In reading on possible issues within FireFox, it suggests that an add-on may have introduced those to my computer and I was not able to locate any add-ons with any of the words from those 3 names above. Can you advise on a process to remove those 3 search engines permanently?

I thought of uninstalling FireFox and reinstalling, my question is would all my Bookmarks and cached passwords get deleted with the uninstall?

Thanks for looking into this for me.

Doing a search for this change provides hundreds of topics and thousands of folks complaining about the added spaces between menu items and no real solution. I found one that entails making changes to the chrome file and proton, I tried this and it doesn't work for me and I shouldn't have to make changes to files in the first place. If anyone from the development team is listening, I know you had to satisfy those using touch screens, but how about making it easy for us to change the spacing a bit tighter. Many of us have lots of bookmarks and find we now have to scroll to find the ones at the bottom, then go to the top again to select "open in......". Could you add a simple toggle, "wide menu spacing or close menu spacing"? Anything that worked on version 89 or 90, does not work now. Please, this really is frustrating
