Firefox tabs not syncing between iPhone and macbook pro

Hello!

While I do have 97 tabs open in Firefox on my iPhone, NONE of them appear in my 'Synced Tabs' Sidebar in Firefox on my macbook pro.

To allay the immediate and obvious questions: + Yes, I'm running the most up-to-date version of Firefox on my mac (76.0.1) and on my iPhone (version 25 with no additional update available on the App Store) + Yes, I am signed-in on both devices. + Yes, I am signed-in to the SAME account on both devices. + Most surprisingly: YES AND YES, I can SEND a specific TAB from the mac to the iPhone as well as SEND A--ie ONE at a time--TAB from the iPhone to the Mac. Whaaaaaat... why??

(a quick PS: the all-caps words are all-caps-ed for emphasis on how unbelievable this is--I'm far more surprised than I am angry; I have faith in the Firefox community being able to solve this)

To reiterate, despite the situation described above, ZERO tabs appear in the list of Synced Tabs! There is a (fairly meta) screenshot attached below which shows the empty Synced Tabs Sidebar.

THINGS I have ALREADY tried: 1) I have tried signing out and signing back in on the Mac. 2) I have tried pressing/running a 'sync' on both devices. 3) I have searched for archived help files and found one suggesting I look for a "userChrome.css" file in the profile folder buried in the hidden view of my ~/library--I did this and found no such file. 4) I tried signing out and clicking on the 'sign-in to sync tabs' button IN THE Synced Tabs Sidebar ITSELF; I was able to login but... no change. 5) I tried RENAMING BOTH devices. The renaming synced on both sides, but THE TABS ARE STILL MISSING.  :/

I've run out of immediate ideas... I turn to you, here, for help. Please help.

Cheers, MitzvahGuy

I created a Firefox account in order to be able to share files that are under 2.5 GB. I am currently logged in to Firefox. 1st, I am asked to login in to Firefox Send, couldn't it pick up my credentials from the browser? 2nd, I use a password database, I copy/paste my creds into Send, I get "Something went wrong". This is not helpful and very frustrating. 3rd, Why isn't Firefox Send it's own product on the support page?

I am using Linux Mint 19.3, Firefox 75.0. I have UBlock Origins installed as my only add on. I Whitelisted Firefox Send but that didn't work. I use a VPN, but have tried with it on and off.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

What is going on with using YouTube on Firefox? All of a sudden, the last few days, I keep getting a yellow bar saying that there is a error with Script, Then I find out that the current Firefox does not use Java Script.

This is very annoying, I've and tired of getting this error message every time I open or close a YouTube video. I would prefer that I be able to watch YouTube on Firefox, but I will not watch it much longer if this is what I have to put up with.

I think that if you don't want to allow Java than you provide a platform that with run YouTube without issue. I've used Firefox for sense the early 90s and you are well know for making changes that don't provide a user friendly environment every now and again. If you can't provide a error free means of watching YouTube, I will be looking for a Browser that does. Even though I hate being tracked by Google. I am sure they track my us of YouTube but at least I don't have to put up with poor viewing or have a video interrupted because of Java Script not being used.

How can I roll back to the previous version of Firefox?

It just updated without my knowledge to version 76.0 and it broke Google Maps. I cannot "grab" the maps and moved them in any direction, an extremely very important feature. It's not Google, because I tried the identical maps using Opera, Chrome and Brave and it's working fine on all three of those browsers. Thanks for your help.

I am asking this as a last attempt before giving uo on Firefox completely.

I cannot access the "Player" Page of the UK National Lottery Web Site if using Firefox. This is the page : https://www.national-lottery.co.uk/player/p/home.ftl

I get this error message : "SECURE CONNECTION FAILED. An error occurred during a connection to www.national-lottery.co.uk. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR"

Windows 8.1, running Firefox 75.0, with Avast 20.2.2041 Anti Virus.

This used to work fine, the was saved as a Bookmark. I can open the Web Page fromthe same computer if I use google Chrome Browser, without any other intervention.

After extensively researching various Help Topics on Firefox here's what I've tried :

Turning OFF Avast Anti-Virus protection - makes no differece. Clearing Firefox History, Cache, and Cookies - makes no difference. Refreshing Firefox - makes no difference.

The other thing I have noticed is that the Home Page of the National Lottery Web Site - https://www.national-lottery.co.uk/ WILL load, but only as a page Text with lots of Links.

Any ideas ?

Hello, this appears to be a Firefox-exclusive problem as any other browser used will fix the issues listed below. However, when I am using Firefox, the following happens:

  • I am unable to like or retweet anything, and cannot follow any accounts. Attempting to do so resets them if I refresh or click off the tab.
  • Notifications do not go away even when I view them
  • Any tweets I have cannot be deleted
  • Any info on my profile cannot be changed
  • I cannot log out

I've tried multiple ways to fix this, including clearing my cache, running in Safe Mode, and removing my saved login. None of these have worked, unfortunately. I've reached out to Twitter Support, but soon realized I wouldn't hear back about specific problems at all. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

When I'm on a site and it takes me to Paypal for payment, I end up with just an endlessly rotating circle and "Securely logging you in... You activated PayPal One Touch™, so no need to enter your password today"

Supposedly this problem has been solved for prior posts: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1277038 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1279904

But, the solutions don't work for me. The "security shield" solution doesn't work, nor does the set to "false" solution.

I do have a solution, but I'd like a better one. My current solution when I get this screen is to kick myself, saying "Dammit, I know I can't use Firefox to make Paypal payments" and then just switch to any other browser.

Dear Anyone.

Been told to use Zygote Body Website for part of my homework! I've got the Webgl Force thing set to true in about:config on Firefox but Zygote Body still won't load and I'm too dumbass a user to know what to do about it!

I know this'll cause shockwaves - but if my version of Firefox CAN'T handle Webgl even though the variable is set correctly (or variables - ARE - dumb user here don't forget!) - does anyone know a browser that CAN handle Zygote Body so I can get my assignment done?

Yours hopefully

When I reopen a closed tab, I would expect it to open on the last page I visited with that tab. For some reason it has been opening the first page I visited with that tab. For example if I visited the following websites "new tab page -> google -> mozilla support" and then closed and reopened this tab, the page would be google. This has only started happening in the last week or two, so I'm wondering if this is intentional or if there's something in about:config that I can change.
