I clicked on a popup link from Firefox to speed up my browser. Came back to my computer and everything's gone, all my fast links that I had at the top of my screen, like Facebook, Gmail, everything I've saved for quick links over the past 2 years. I want my computer back, just the way I had it. This is a nightmare. I'd much rather my browser run slow (it really wasn't running slow). I tried a system restore, but it didn't restore things the way I had them. Please, what do I do to reverse this nightmare, and please don't ever offer to speed up my browser again.

When watching a video baught from Amazon in most cases audio and picture are not synchronous. Discrepanca seems to increase with watching time. The problem does not occur with Opera, Internet Explorer or Edge. Deleting browser cache and cookies does not help. Reducing the quality or rewind does not help. Internet quality/speed seems to be OK because it wors fine with other browsers. How can I fix this problem. I do not want to go to another browser because I am very happy with firefox.

Best regards Martin

When I try to dowload a file, i fails and create a 0 byte file. I tried with repository firefox, and download the tar.gz from dev version. Both fail. I deleted ~/.mozilla and ~/.cache/mozilla to start fresh and the error persist. I can browse, open a PDF in integrated viewer, but I am unable to save it. Other browsers can download files to ~/Downloads without problems.

Any hint of how to debug (and/or solve) the problem is welcome.

Thanks

Firefox does not sync all settings

It seems that Firefox does not sync all settings the way for example Chrome does. In Google chrome one can expect absolutely all settings to sync across browser instances instantly. In Firefox only parts of the settings are synced. This makes Firefox unreliable and inconvenient because it is not apparent to the user which settings are synced and which are not.

Here is my experience:

- I made a new Firefox account - Signed in - Made sure syncing is on for:

  • Bookmarks
  • Credit cards
  • History
  • Add-ons
  • Logins and password
  • Options

- Added some add-ons, added some bookmarks - Customized the interface - Changed some Settings - Opened a Windows 10 VM - Installed Firefox 83 (so both computers have the same version) - Logged in with my Firefox account - Waited for the sync

So far I can see that my extensions are synced and my bookmarks. However there are some things that don't sync:

- Customization for controls, buttons and toolbars - Default search engine - Alternative search engines - Settings for "Firefox Data Collection and Use"

There might be more settings that don't sync, which I have not tested. Is this behavior expected? If so I might switch back to Chrome. Syncing only certain settings defeats the purpose of syncing, at least for me.

Also is there any list or information about which settings are syncing and which are not?

Today at 14:07 I changed my email preferences and unsubscribed from all email types in my Firefox account.

At 5 hours later, at 19:36 I receive an email from Mozilla with the title "Sync your bookmarks, history and logins".

So either the email preferences does not work or the email does not respect the preferences I have set. Either way it's always extremely annoying when this happens and it leaves me wondering if Mozilla takes privacy seriously.

Even worse is, I already have sync set up (which doesn't work anyway as I have written about here).

Pictures attached as "proof" for those who are in doubt.

Hi,

Writing in some distress here. Had Firefox open with a lot of tabs, most relevantly hundreds of pages relevant for my PhD research, when my computer decided to re-start on its own. When I opened Firefox afterward I was greeted by the "What's new with Firefox" page, all my tabs gone. Both "Recently Closed Tabs" and "Recently Closed Windows" were completely empty. "Restore Previous Session" is greyed out and unclickable. After looking up solutions to this problem online I went to my profile at C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles, and discovered there was no sessionstore-backups folder there. There is a file called sessionstore.js, but it has last been modified May 2017. I checked and my history is still all there. Is there anything I can do, or do I need to go over the thousands upon thousands of entries there in search of the ones relevant for my research?

I have the DuckDuckGo search engine as the only search engine in my list of search engines. There is a very annoying issue with the way Firefox handles searches.

When I enter text into the DuckDuckGo search box two things can happen after hitting Enter to perform the search. If the cursor was positioned just below the search box where Change Search Settings button is located, after hitting Enter the the search defaults to the Options/Search page. This requires reloading my home page retyping my search query and ensure that the cursor isn't located over the Change Search Settings. Since the search engine textbox is located high up on the page instead of in the middle my cursor frequently ends up positioned over the Change Search Settings button. Since I am only using one search engine, it would be great if the Change Search Settings button could be disabled. Can This be done? I haven't been able to disable it with Firefox version 83.0 (64 bit).

Hello everybody! I have a problem with https://www.krone.at/kreuzwortraetsel! When I want to enter a letter, I click on a field that turns yellow. When I type the letter, the field does not contain the same letter, but a small window opens, where the letter appears and to the right of it there is a comment. If I load the same puzzle with the Google Chrome Browser, this error does not occur. This error did not occur on 11.11.2020. How can you get rid of it? Dieter

hello folks,

I'm getting very annoyed with the paranoia of corporate America and I my machines are all heavily customized. and I've managed to cut off all ties with corporate people because they are very big time wasters because most of their customers are very uninformed. but that's OK. I just happen to be a rare case. I posted this question elsewhere and asked some other very competent people about this. It is here:

[https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/foru.../location-of-firefox-saved-form-data/]

however, the addressed a very similar issue. really the point of this effort by me is to save anything and everything that BANKS put on my machines so i don't have to talk to CSR's when they change their security and annoy customers with changing auth and auth. I just ran into it again with HSBC 10 minutes ago and wasted 20 minutes doing redundant tasks with a CSR to unlock the account. can you guys tell me what is in each one of the files listed in the image I've attached? I can do it myself with github tools, but I'd rather save time and get it from the pros here, assuming someone here knows. I just need summaries. Not specifics. I can figure it out from there. If someone could give a hint if this doesn't look like a suspicious post, that would be nice.

thanks.

It's pretty much it actually. I use windows 10 pro and mozilla's latest version. Zooming the screen happens randomly like once in 1 minute or 30 sec. Pinning someone else and unpinning solves the problem for a while but it happens randomly and frequently. I tried to close all extensions and it didn't helped. Opera browser is working fine if I compare. Thanks for the help, be safe.
