I installed Firefox on a new device and initiated a sync for multi-account containers - it promptly synced in the wrong direction. It eliminated all customization from what should have been the source (the existing device), overwriting it with the default settings of a first-time installation. I was quite surprised.

This leads me to a couple of questions.

1. Is there a sync version history or any way of rolling back a sync? 2. Is there a way to explicitly choose the sync direction?

Quite honestly it is very confusing that there is no reference whatsoever to which way an initial sync will go. I was hesitant to risk this, decided to trust it knew what to do (even though it didn't give me any indication that it did) and lost my gamble.

Firefox knows the device names, so can I suggest some basic reassuring UX be inserted into this process with something like "Initiate sync from X-DEVICE-FIREFOX to Y-DEVICE-FIREFOX?". A bit of clarity would be helpful here, as well as a way to roll back a syncing mistake instead of just having to gamble possibly losing hard-won customization with no going back.

Or have I completely stumbled past some obvious place where everything I'm requesting exists and is accessible already?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

I did not choose a BETA VERSION. I have used FIREFOX since VERSION 1.0. IT USED TO BE THE BEST BROWSER EVER CREATED. BUT NO LONGER. WE use Firefox to accomplish things, not to debug BETA versions all day. One day I wake up and you FORCED rel 89.0 on us and it turned the whole WEEK to crap. I had 6 consecutive crashes the other day. Today I had 5 consecutive crashes. I had to turn my PC off and give it and me a rest. I did not ask for a BETA, even to leave rel 88. YOU 'forced' it on us with your "you have no other chooses if you want to continue using FIREFOX attitude. And all you can say is: Go BACK to 'stable rel 90 AND CREATE A NEW PROFILE? DO you have any idea how hard it is for us, a USER to CREATE A NEW PROFILE FROM SCRATCH?

THIS MAKES NO SENSE, YOU CRAM A "BETA" ON US, IT CRASHES A HALF DOZEN TIMES A DAY and your answer is to go back to a stable version YOU FORCED ON US? Then we spend a day or two creating a NEW PROFILE until you force ANOTHER BETA on us to test for you? You can't let us stay on a STABLE version like rel 88 until you work out the bugs then "tell us" there is one available and advise us to INSTALL IT? THIS IS CRAZY, let alone "Professional".

Frequently after an upgrade my FF (91.0b7 (64-bit)) on Win 10 reverts to the previous version. I only notice it because I start getting prompts to upgrade.

Frankly, I'm pretty clueless and sick of Windoze but determined to not resort to Chrome or hEdge. ANY suggestions to help figure what's happening (and hopefully how to prevent it) will be greatly appreciated.

I really dislike the look of the tabs in the newest version. A floating bubble, not connected to the page, for the active tab? And the inactive tabs are connected, but there is no separation between the tabs? Aside from uninstalling the latest version and installing a previous version, is there a way to restore the look of the previous version? Maybe an add-on? If I have to reinstall an old version I'll probably just switch over to a different browser.

I've been having an issue with firefox when trying to load my emails in aol. I don't have this problem with other browsers. After logging in with user name and password, there is a consent page that pops up. After answering that prompt, the emails should start loading. It's been taking almost 2 minutes to load. I thought that by updating to the latest version, 91.0, today, that problem would cease. It hasn't. Any ideas?

With FF91, it seems I can only delete cookies for an entire domain. I occasionally have an issue with forums.xfinity.com where it won't load. Deleting the cookies for forums.xfinity.com would fix it. Now, with FF91, I have to delete ALL xfinity.com cookies! It seems as if there should be a way to open up the 'container' to see the sub-domains, and then you could further open that up if needed to delete an individual cookie.

So this morning I accidentally involuntarily clicked on the updated window that popped up and now I have yet another update Firefox version 91 and once again I have a TabBar I don't want at the previous settings to disable proton are no longer working. Why are you forcing and shoving down my throat your insane updates addictions all the time! I don't want them I don't need them at this lame excuse for security update all because you're so concerned about my safety security and well-being... yeah right! What's next? In the next update you determine which webpages I can see and which not? It's already happening that many of legit websites I cannot access anymore because I get a security warning blah blah blah blah and even if I click on "accept the risk" and proceed I cannot get to the website anymore. What's the point? For that I don't need Firefox. We're done with Firefox. I'm going to uninstall on all our systems. I've had it with this constant updates nonsense and not asked for and unwanted changes! I have enough already with Windows update nonsense which always introduces another few dozen bugs with every update. Get a life!

....Mozilla were to build a car, (what a nightmare that would be) the next model would have the ignition key behind the head, the drive select under the seat and the accelerator on the left side....

With the new Windows update (and FireFox, too?) the custom changes I made a few months ago to resolve the drop down menu spacing issues no longer work. I've got double-spaced menus, AGAIN, which might be awesome for small touch screens but *completely suck* for PCs.

Any clue how to change the "new and improved" version so it's PC user friendly, again???

With Firefox 91, I can no longer disable the hideous Proton changes to tabs. Separating tabs from their content is a really poor user interface decision. It makes it harder to tell which tab is the current tab. With Proton, the active tab is slightly brighter than the inactive tabs. For older folks and color blind folks, this makes it all but impossible to to tell which tab is active.

If you won't come to your senses and revert this bad user interface decision, then at least add an official option to disable it and go back to the old tab style that other browsers use. If you won't do that, then I will just have to use a different browser. Which makes me very sad, because aside from your bad sense in user interface design, I loved Firefox.
