Hello,

I have 4 devices (2 laptops, 1 phone and 1 PC), which I logged in to my Firefox account in all of them. I can see my bookmarks in all except for the PC (Windows 10). I can not see my pc under the connected devices from all other devices but I can not access my bookmarks from the browser that I am using on my PC. Can you please guide me how to fix this issue.

Thank you, Afsane

The other day I downloaded SaveFrom.net Helper but then shortly after I deleted it. The program was deleted from the computer except that the green line with the program name shows as an extension on the bar at the top of the Firefox page.

I cannot delete it. If I delete it once it reappears next time I load Firefox. The extension does not show up in add ons and extensions in Tools Firefox.

I have read an earlier reply that suggests delete Firefox and reinstall Firefox and that will get rid of it.

However, I am not anxious to try that as over time I have already extensions ad add ons and other customisation of Firefox, including all my bookmarks and I don't want to lose these and start again.

So here is my question. As the program is deleted and as their extension does not show up in Tools and then adddons, can I assume that the existence of the program name as an extension on one of the title bars at the top of Firefox is just an irritation and that this SaveFrom program cannot in any way add or do anything to my computer?

I can then live with it rather than deleting Firefox and starting again.

I would be so grateful for your help.

Thank you.

The oddest thing happened today. Maybe not that odd based on other posts. I've always had Adobe Acrobat as my default PDF reader. For whatever reason, this afternoon, it changed itself back to FF reader. I don't know how that happened. One moment it was working fine and then it wasn't. I reset it back to Adobe. Any explanation as to why it would change itself? Thanks

System: MSI B640 Tomahawk. I5 10600KU 32GB RAM

Video: MSI 3070 X3

System Drive: 250GB fast Samsung SSD, with 50% free.

System OS: W10Pro_x64 21H1, Defender, no Firewall, no extra AV. Firefox_93.0_x64

Network: TYPE: Dedicated FIBER LAN Provider: Telenet Account Type: FIBER_200 Plus +


Addons: Adblock + µblock FBPurity Block Sender New Tab Override Cookie Manager and Cookie quick Manager Auto-High-Quality for youtube Ant Downloader Video Downloadhelper Cute Save Button WebP Image Converter Translate Web Page

Additional Information: Open Pinned Tabs: In between 25 and 60, depending on my current activities.

Tried: Disabling each add-on until all were off. Safe Start. Nothing helps.

Understandings: 1) No browser is made to run up to 60 open tabs (possibly even more)!!! 2) I run a "plethora" (compared to most users) if add-ons; these also bring the use speed down. 3) Resource used: 2GB (with "mere 30 pages" open.

BUT: DESPITE that: I ALSO understand that, considering my system and Network Type, it should not even be problematic with 200 pages open at once. 2GB over 32GB of RAM? Not the slightest issue (and it often runs at 4GB RAM in use). My CPU never runs half high, even when I have like 60 pages open: Should not be an issue then either. My Video Card has plenty resource over as well when at highest for me usage." Again, it should be no issue. My Fiber Netware? Telenet BVBA, Mechelen Test results: Ping: 5ms Jitter: 2ms Download: 904.2 Mbps Upload: 038.3 Mbps Not the best, not the worst, but for simple browsing, more than, I would assume, plenty.

So, what gives, what is the issue? No extreme strain on the system, no background high-resource issues, sure: one or two add-ons in Firefox but these as well do not strain my system, no AV issues, no Firewall issues (I turned that off, I fail to get the need for one as a house-dog-tree user), yet slow performance. Also, while 30'ish tabs running, 2GB used of RAM? My my, what the hell do they do as Site Admins to have these amounts (and NO, I do not do porn, thank you.  :P I am well aware of other people having insane issues surfing porn, as I helped many of these folks)? Sure, Deviant is a larger one that is open, being a graphical site, but like Quora, FB, Hot- and G-Mail and similar, these ain't, so to get a 2GB usage is weird, I would assume. I said, assume: yes, I am not specifically an internet know-all, I know of networking as a former NOVEL Netware Supervisor under UNIX (also Spupervisor), but Networking in a company is not the same as internet.

So, what is going on, why is my browser so slow? Having turned of all and 1 page open it's lightning fast, but now ... So, it is the open tabs, and the add-ons, though when turned off, I see no real difference. Brings it to tabs. How come, it is this "heavy", even for my system, please?

Thank you. Xog.

I am running "Firefox Browser 93.0", and I have Windows 10 Pro Version 21H1, OS Build 19043.1288. I am unable to watch certain video's, as an example, the video in this link: [https://www.wandtv.com/news/illinois-.../article_24b92a86-32c4-11ec-a487-3bb3f17fa133.html] won't play. It use to work, but something has changed, not by me. It will play that same video using the "Edge Browser" so there is nothing wrong with the website. However, I can play this "YouTube Video": [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAJSYk5wMiA] I also tried another link in their website, this is the weather link: [https://www.wandtv.com/weather] it starts to play, but then stops and nothing ever plays. Here is another link I tried on their website: [https://www.wandtv.com/sports/fans-ma.../article_f94f4ade-32e0-11ec-9351-ef71f52b96cd.html] It won't play either. But they all play in the "Edge Browser!" Any ideas on what changed and how do I change it back, so they will play? I prefer Firefox Browser to any other browser! Do you know what the issue could be? I appreciate your time! NiceSeeingYou

Hi,

I have been using Firefox sync for many years now. I just got a new computer and when I tried to connect with my account, I received a message saying Firefox has locked my account.

Would you please fix this asap? I use your browser to work and not having my account back would force me to switch to Chromium, which I don't want to. Please note my account and my email address are both legit. Thanks

I turned my computer on today and all of a sudden half of the file icons on my desktop now have a Firefox file logo and I want my desktop to be restored to its original appearance. I did nothing to cause this and do not appreciate the Firefox browser software changing the appearance of my desktop without my permission. Also I do not like having to take the time correcting the situation. Do I need to delete Firefox from my computer and start using a different browser? Can you direct me as to how best to fix this???

Firefox will randomly stop resolving google search results. At random times, no search entered at the top url bar will resolve. The browser will just change the text in the bar, and then won't do anything else. If there is a Google page already open, it won't load any links from the results. Google.com won't even load. This typically lasts about 2-5 minutes.

I've seen this in both Windows and Linux. Linux Builds I've tested were the Flatpak from flathub, the snap, the Fedora Repo, and the Tarball binary. They all had the same result after a while of using it. This also happens on both my home network as well as my work network.

I have cleared my profile by manually deleting the folder in appdata or in ~/.mozilla, and tested with no extensions and no setting tweaks. The only tweak I made is disabling DNS over HTTPS. If I change the default search engine to DuckDuckGo or something else, It no longer happens. but that's because it's not trying to access a google domain.

I have attached a gif of my issue.

Hi!

I want to change the default serif and monospace fonts (Atkinson Hyperlegible and Hack, respectively) in Firefox. However, the fonts that are listed in the advanced font settings appear to be a specific list that doesn't update with the system-installed fonts, so I cannot pick the previously mentioned fonts. I tried working around by tweaking with the about:config values, but so far no luck. Any advice?

Thanks in advance, Lucas

Hello! Something in my Firefox installation seems to be making several Google network (google.com / forcesafesearch.google.com / www.youtube-nocookie.com / m.youtube.com, and a couple of others) calls shortly after launch. I have a DNS sinkhole, so that is how I can see.

I have a few reputable extensions (or should be, from EFF, Firefox itself, or Ublock Origin), but it also happens in safe mode. I went through a good chunk of this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections and still the calls occur

I am on Windows 10, with FF v93.

Thanks very much!

Greetings,

I am a sysadmin working on an enterprise deployment of a Firefox extension, specifically this one: https://addons.mozilla.org/hr/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/

It's a password manager called BitWarden.

I am deploying the extension using the official Firefox ADMX templates, so far I configured most settings correctly. When I am deploying the extension to my users (I am using Microsoft Intune), I need to provide an URL from where the extension will be downloaded. I found that URL by copying the link from the 'Add to Firefox' button from the https://addons.mozilla.org/hr/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/ link.

I found the link to be: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/3843699

What I want to know is the following: 1. Will this link stay the same for all future BitWarden extension versions? 2. Is this something that changes when a new Bitwarden extension gets released or is this link static? 3. Is there perhaps a link which automatically redirects the download to the latest available version?

Some online guides say that a 'latest.xpi' string needs to be appended to the add-on's page (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/ in this case), but I found that not to work. If I go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/latest.xpi, it throws an "page not found" error.

Thank you in advance!
