Hi, I have two computers (call them A and B) and want to sync, at least bookmarks preferences and logins... BUT for the first "sync" operation, I want A to OVERWRITE the data on B (not MERGE) ... and thereafter sync normally.

How can I do this?

Many thanks in advance

As IE11 heads towards the sunset my company is looking to switch to FireFox as a solution. There are multiple applications that we use internally that require the selection of a certificate to proceed into the system. In IE we make this process easy for users by changing the "Friendly Name" option in the certificate properties of IE. The result is that when the certificate choices come up it looks like:

Joe's HR Cert Shipping & Receiving Cert Joe's Email Cert

When we use Firefox all we can see is the cert number/serial number. We would like to be able to define a "Friendly Name" to eliminate confusion and keep the current productivity levels

Can this be done in FireFox and How?

I am really annoyed. The new update has lost many of my bookmarks Plus the 'other' bookmark page that automatically appeared in a bar has disappeared. It now means that as a user, you have to go thru more 'clicks' to access yr 'fav's sites'. Therefore I wish to revert to previous, which hopefully wld still hve ALL of my bookmarks. I wish IT companies wld leave things alone. Generally changes are more for their benefit (data mining) than the users. Can anyone assist me. thks

How do I disable "recent bookmarks" when I go to the bookmarks.

Also How do I get bookmarks to appear as they did prior to the update. It used to be 1 button on the right side of the address bar would open a menu that had all of my bookmarks and book folders. Now theres an option button, where when I select "bookmarks" and then "bookmark current tabs", "search bookmarks", and "hide bookmarks toolbar" as well the dreaded "recent bookmarks" that show a random selection of among all of my bookmarks from random folders.

If I want a remembrance of how my bookmarks used to be, I have to make sure the menu bar is visible and select bookmarks from there.

Hello, Recently, I changed from Chrome to FireFox. I have a website where I have to join to meetings with my client. When I click on the scheduled meeting, it opens zoom launch meeting page and launches meetings usually (with chrome) I mean the zoom launch meeting (as attached in image). In FireFox, I don't find the meeting getting launched. The launch meeting page comes up, asks me if it can use zoom app. I give Yes and then the thing happens is it opens the Zoom app. It does not launch the meeting. Any suggestion you think that will help, please post it as a reply.

Thank you in advance!!

Telling a 32bt from 64bt file by the name--Firefox Standard--Firefox esr

I'd like to request that the same versions of the Firefox files have the 32bt or 64bt designation in the name. When downloading directly FF Standard and FFesr for my 32bt and 64bt computers/laptops, I can't tell which is which in the download folder, and so I have to download them all over, this time waiting for each to download so I know which it is, and then rename it, and then downloading the other bt version.

    (For example: the file "Firefox Setup 91.5.1esr.exe" could be 32bt or 64bt file, both download with the same name. The same with FF Standard et al.)

It's tedious to do the renaming but I prefer to know at a glance which is which in my archive folders. . . Been doing this renaming for years. Just thought I'd finally make a request. I believe it's the same issue in the Linux and iOS 32bt and 64bt versions--they look identical in the download folder. Thank you.
