I have multiple users on my computer, each with their own sign in. How can I have the other users create a Firefox account to sync their own settings when they sign on to this one computer and not have to sync my settings on this same computer or share them between users? EX: With my friend signed in on this computer I tried signing my friend into Firefox and It stated it would share sync settings. I don't want shared sync settings between us.

I'm sure there's a way to do it. I'm just not sure.

I love Firefox but I'm having some issues with some features.

The feature I'm commenting today is the downloading files feature.

In the settings, it says always ask where to download but this feature is not working properly.

Can you look at this?

Hello, I use DuckDuckGo as my default search engine. Is there a way to have my DuckDuckGo search settings load automatically when Firefox opens? It is such a nuisance to manually reload my settings every time I open Firefox. Is there perhaps a way to store the DuckDuckGo settings in Firefox? Thanks for your time.

Dear Mozilla Firefox Community: My question is about disabling an AddOn vs completely uninstalling it from a privacy/permissions stand-point. When I disable an AddOn from my browser, does that prevent the collection of data/revoke the permissions required to install it? Or does the AddOn sit idle, silently collecting data in the background? Also, when uninstalling an AddOn from my browser, does that instantly revoke all collection of data first allowed, or does it still collect residual data? Thank you for your time and consideration. Sincerely,

I would very much like to adjust the text zoom of my (updated current firefox) browser (to 170%) and the normal zoom to something around 130-150%. That would allow me to read from distance and use the whole screen. However, firefox only allows "text-only" zoom OR "whole site" zoom (in "about:preferences"). Is there an addon or an "about:config" setting where I could globally adjust text zoom and website zoom to distinct values at once (without setting "website zoom" to 100% for example, when adjusting "text-only")

I would greatly appreciate a solution! Thanks, best regards Gregor

I have several Extensions enabled like Badger and Weather and several more. Used to have an emblem for each one at the top right of my Firefox Home page but the Extension emblems or icons aren't there anymore. These Extensions are enabled. I can verify that. For instance I know I have the Weather Extension but without the icon to click on I can't open it. How can I put these icons back so I can use them? I looked under options on the General Page and I saw where you can drag icons from there back to the upper toolbar but the icons for my Extensions aren't there to drag back. The Extension icon is there... looks like a piece of a puzzle. I dragged that to the toolbar but when I click on it it goes to a page showing that my extensions are enabled. But I still can't open the Weather extension on that page. I know if I had the weather icon back on the upper toolbar it will show me the weather. Thanks for you help

Disable auto restoring session after crash

I like to disable the automatic restore of sessions in all circumstances. I'd prefer to retain my history though.

Using firefox 84.0.2 on Ubuntu 20.04 Whenever I logout/login or restart the OS, FF restores my last session without asking. It's ok when I close FF first (FF starts a new session) but every other app shuts and resumes gracefully.

There are a lot of similar questions suggesting various settings...

browser.sessionhistory.max_entries =0 browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers=0 browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes=0 browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo=0 browser.sessionstore.max_windows_undo=0 browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash=false

"Restore previous session" is unset.

None of this solves the problem.

Comments on other post suggest that linux shut down causes FF to crash. Seems that you cannot disable the restore session after crash and I get no "Do you want to...." screen.

Is there no way to tell FF not to restore crashed sessions?

I am using the ESR versions of Firefox and would really like to have the clients auto-update as soon as possible but I still want to test new major releases when the come available. Now I know I can use the early releases to test but that pins me down because then I need to be done testing before the public release comes out. So I am looking for an option to install auto-install all minor updates within the same major version but not auto-update to a new major version. Is something like this possible or where can I find this setting?
