I would like to sync my phone contacts with a file on my linux box. In that way i will be able to edit the file on the pc to look up or enter phone numbers that will be on the phone.

in a rational world, i would go to setup, select sync to file, accept the default of documents/firefox/phone-sync.txt and that would be it. is it possible in this world at all?

Whenever I save a webpage, it says failed in the Download history. The page actually does save but shows it as failed. If I double-click on the "failed" page in the Download history, the download history says that it saved, but if I open the re-saved page the re-saved webpage many times looks like a non-html page or simply only saves part of the page. This is puzzling in that if I ignore the false message that the page failed to save and open the page from my download folder, all looks fine. Please help, Thanks, pianotech

Hi, I have been using Ubuntu Mate, for some time now, since the latest installed versions, Firefox is unable to print the invoices generated by the revenue agencies site. The print is generated empty, it only shows the details of the site and some accessory data at the top. I tried to install an old version, 78, if I remember correctly, and the prints are fine. I tried with another browser and the printouts are correct, again. Does it happen to you too?

Why won't the bookmark in 'Other BookMarks' go away when I 'move' it (drag and drop) to where I want it in my saved bookmark directories? This is a copy not a move and I want a move function.

Why can't I delete a BookMark from 'Other BookMarks' without the same bookmark getting deleted where I sorted it (there is a link that shouldn't be there).

both these issues make it impossible to manage 'Other Bookmarks' and keep it tidy and minimal

When I print out a multi-page description of a specific mutual fund, Firefox just omits in the middle of the printout several sections of information, without even leaving blank spaces for the omissions. If I go over to Edge for the same page, the printout is complete and perfect. This has been my long-term experience of Firefox compared to other major browsers. I have already implemented all of the advice on good printouts on Firefox, margins and other settings and so forth. When I posted about this issue perhaps two years ago, someone posted back that Firefox had never been designed to be a complete browser, and that printing had never been fully developed. I cannot know if that is a true statement, but I can say it fits the facts as I experience them. I remain puzzled as to why Firefox would ignore major printing issues to this degree, unless there is just some internal viewpoint that printing is wasteful and rarely really needed. If I want to look at five mutual funds, I want to print out their basics and spread those printouts on the table and look at all five at once. The computer screen has a limited space and does not well allow for that, not in a time-effective way. Printing in moderation is very useful and important. MY QUESTION: Will Firefox ever be made competitive with Edge and Chrome on the printing function?

YouTube works in all other browsers. I have restarted Firefox, uninstalled it and reinstalled fresh, nothing seems to work. Disabling addons does nothing. When I go to watch a video, I press the play button, the video loads sluggishly, and when loading is finished, before the video starts, I get "An error occured. Please try again later. (Playback ID: _______)". Vimeo works fine, but some news sites have the same issue. I have also tried just signing out of YouTube, and that does not work either.
