Up until recently I was using a 11 year old laptop that was slowing dying. I was finally able to acquire a new computer and get it up and running just before an accident (as if out of a comedy movie - the roommate's cat knocked a full bowl of cereal onto the old laptop) effectively destroyed the old machine. Thankfully, Firefox Sync meant that everything I had been working on appeared when I got the new machine fully functional...until I logged on to Firefox this evening to find my Synced Tabs empty with just a "Want to see your tabs from other devices here? Connect Another Device" message.

The old device is toast...I don't know if it will even turn on again, much less function enough to sign into Firefox. Synced Tabs was also working just fine for a solid week until it just up and disappeared. Is there some way to restore these? I know it's my fault for relying/expecting Sync to always be there and not backing up the links I had open immediately, and this is a mistake I won't make again...but I'd really love to not lose everything I had open.

Thank you very much in advance for any help or suggestions.

Dear Colleague,

  I am on a Surface Pro 3 running Windows 10 64-bit.     I have been running Firefox for 15 years without a problem. So,  I saw that there was an upgrade to Firefox, and I downloaded it and started installing.    I have completed this process many times in the past.
  When I started running the upgrade, I received the following error,  XUI Runner window that says  "Error Platform version '78.0.2' is not compatible with minVersion>=78.0.1 maxVersion <=78.0.1.  I checked the wiki and the bug list but did not see any bugs.    
  I have not uninstalled and reinstalled yet because I do not want to lose my bookmarks, history, etc. if I can help it.  
  Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you Marj

Hi, I'm trying to access to audio and video website like Spotify (Audio) and DisneyPlus (Audio + Video) but a yellow bar on top inform me to try later because necessary component for audio and video is installing.

This issue is present since different day, I tried to reinstall, reset Firefox but the issue persist. Windows 10 2004, Firefox 78.02.

Why no issue with the browser and Firefox should show a banner and ask to try later where the situation is the same? Why Firefox is not allowing me to watch video and to listen audio now?

I hate Firefox when do this... it's not intelligent.

A lot of folks are having issues with the new URL bar.

My biggest issue with the new URL is the way that URL bar text turns light blue rather than to normal way that selected text is shown, in negative (white on blue), because I often want to select part of the URL and the light blue makes it difficult to see what I have selected. I am 55 and my eyesight is not what it used to be.

jscher2000 kindly recommended adding the following to userchrome.css here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283831?page=3#answer-1331668 as follows

  1. urlbar {
 --lwt-toolbar-field-highlight: Highlight;
 --lwt-toolbar-field-highlight-text: HighlightText;

}

But this css does not seem to work for me.

I have not touched the Firefox theme, so I guess I am using the default theme, but I have added the multi-row tabs css from MrOtherGuy https://github.com/MrOtherGuy/firefox-csshacks/tree/master/chrome/multi-row_tabs.css but the multi-row tab css does not seem to mention "toolbar" so I can't see that they would get in each other's way.

I would also like to turn off the automatic selection of the whole url but that may not be possible.

Normally, if I click a pdf file on-line, I get the question to open or save. If I choose open, I get a separate pdf file in my Windows task bar to open. Yesterday, this behavior was different. The PDF file became a little icon in the bottom left of my screen, and when I clicked that it opened the pdf in a browser tab. Today this is gone and it is back to its old way. I prefer the tab. Do you know why this happened or how to get that back?

Hi,

Today I installed the new Firefox 74 but now my multirow bookmarks toolbar is not working correct anymore. They are not side by side, they are now among one another. See attached screen, ca. 75% of the screen is used by the bookmarks.

The following code is contained in my userChrome.css file:

/* Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar Firefox 66+ */

#PersonalToolbar {
  min-height: unset !important;
  max-height: unset !important;
/* text-align: center !important; */
}

#PersonalToolbar #PlacesToolbarItems {
  overflow-x: visible !important;
  overflow-y: visible !important;
  display: inline-block !important;
}

#PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon[label]:not([label=""]) {
  /* Reduce padding on individual bookmarks to fit rows closer together */
  margin-inline-end: 0px !important;
}

Does anybody have a solution for this?

PS: If you need more info, please ask...

Hello.

Is there a way to sync only specific bookmark folders between my PC's and phones? I love the Sync feature in Firefox. But I have many bookmark folders on one PC that I don't want transferred to my other PC nor to my phone. If Mozilla doesn't allow folder-specific syncing, is there an add-on feature that can accomplish this?

Windows and/or Firefox updated recently and something odd is happening. If I open Firefox from my desktop I can access my bookmarks, no problem. If I read my emails in Windows Live Mail and click on a link from an email to a website, the web page opens but I cannot access my bookmarks from this window. They just aren't there. I have to go and open Firefox from the desktop or from the icon in the menu bar.

I am setting up a new desktop and want to copy my Firefox profile from one Linux desktop to another. In the past I have just used sync and then had to go thru the process of making all the config adjustments and tweaking other settings that are not part of sync. I just copied over my Thunderbird profile and it was a perfect copy and paste. Unfortunately I have tried twice with FF and its not working. Keep getting the message that the profile being copied in is from an older version. That's not true however the one being copied in is from 77.0.1 and the new desktop being pasted into is 71.0. Any idea what I am doing wrong that's an easy fix? Thanks.
