Firefox no longer seems to be syncing my bookmarks among devices. In particular, the bookmarks I add on my work iMac do not sync to my android phone or my home macbook pro. I have done the following things to attempt to get things working:

1. Turned off firefox sync on all devices and then back on. 2. Deleted my firefox sync account and recreated it. 3. Deleted and reinstalled firefox on both my android phone and my macbook pro

I have also gone to about:sync-log and see that I seem to have lots of sync errors. I've attached a screenshot of the sync-log screen. I can't seem to attach the txt file of the latest error log, so I'm attaching two screen shots of it as well.

If anyone can help me out, I'd certainly appreciate it!

Edit: Here's a pastebin link of the error log: https://pastebin.mozilla.org/9086433

Hello I have searched this forum already and the best description for this isssue is

"Since quiet some time(~3/4 Year) videos playback on youtube (and twitch) is choppy/stuttering (it looks like the playbock is not in the right order, if A-B-C-D-E-F-G-... is the right order for the frames it looks like A-D-E-B-F-C-G-H-... and then normal again for few seconds, and then again)." from this case https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1195382

And the very example is even shown in this video https://vimeo.com/271932549 captured by another user with same issue from https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1217350#answer-1112431

neither of those were answered anyway. I am bumping this issue as I have the same problem. I already tried to disable all addons, disable webgl, disable or throttle HW acceleration, refresh firefox, even tried to swithc to ESR version but none of these helped. I installed chrome, got the identical/functionally similiar addons and tried to watch youtube/twitch - it was going smooth even after longer period of time. Other players not based on html5 are playing just fine though, it is just that html5 player...and on twitch and yt...

Firefox always asking to answer puzzles on Recaptcha

I've installed the latest version of Firefox. Firefox Quantum 63 x64 and ReCaptchas don't work properly. It has been installed on a fresh Windows 10 Pro and Firefox it's at the same time a fresh install like I'm showing on the video at the end of this post. No firewall, no antivirus, no addons, nothing that should stop Firefox from automatically do the ReCaptcha. But every time you click on I'm not a Robot it always prompts you to do a puzzle.

Please Firefox, fix this issue. It is pretty frustrating to have to answer every time a puzzle that are ridiculously annoying or having to switch to Google Chrome to use those kind of pages that ask you to answer a ReCaptcha.

However, if there is anyone that has a solution, please share it with me or all of us. Because I've been trying to find an answer and haven't find one that works. So I will appreciate a good fix for it.

Thanks in advance to the community and hopefully Firefox finds a fix because for what I've read it's a persistent issue with other older versions too.

I am using CSD on gnome3 on Arch Linux with all my close max min buttons moved to the left as they are on the Mac. Is there a way to accomplish the same thing in FF with CSD on? If I turn it off the button are where I expect them because it uses native decorations, but with it on they are on the right as is customary on MSWindows.

Since the most recent update, opening a new tab does not show my top sites, it just shows a blank page. Top Sites is set to my home page. I saw another user had the same issue but uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox did not fix it for me. How can I fix this bug? It's been giving me many headaches since I use top sites to access my most used webpages when opening new tabs.

Recently, I was forced to format my laptop PC. I didn't keep any files. I want to get my old bookmark collection on my recently formatted laptop. I know that the bookmarks still exist somewhere on a mozilla server somewhere because I still have my phone synced up and it can still access my Desktop Bookmarks folder with all of my bookmarks. I've signed into my firefox account again on my laptop, but none of my bookmarks or settings were returned. How can I force my current bookmarks (the default ones) to be overwritten by my old bookmarks that still exist somewhere in limbo?

Until recently I was able to use google.ca as my default search engine. Now this is no longer the case. Since I am Canadian....and also live in Canada I would think that this would be a pretty easy task.....NOPE! Please fix. This is annoying enough to use a different browser and never look back.

It is pretty simple really. When I search from the address bar or search bar I need the search done from a Canadian prospective and as far as I can tell this is no longer an option? But it really should be.

Hi!

I find the flat, low-contrast, grey toolbar icons boring and a bit difficult to recognize. Most applications offer some form of relieve,for example with gimp it is just one click in the preferences to change to a colourful icon theme, intellij IDEA has a plugin to get rid of those bland, boring, dull grey things. Is there a way to install a different icon set in firefox quantum? As I understand it, complete themes have been abolished and there i not a word about how to replace them on the customization page.
