I'm not sure if this is my Firefox acting up, or just the aftermath of Utorrent installing Web Companion, restoring sessions in Firefox hasn't been possible. Firefox does remember my history, but it shows no options for restoring session or restoring tabs. I've already done a refresh, I've deleted web companion and run CCleaner and Malwarebytes Adwcleaner and they show my system is clean, but I still can't get restore sessions to work.

What's going on, and how can I fix this?

Hello I have searched this forum already and the best description for this isssue is

"Since quiet some time(~3/4 Year) videos playback on youtube (and twitch) is choppy/stuttering (it looks like the playbock is not in the right order, if A-B-C-D-E-F-G-... is the right order for the frames it looks like A-D-E-B-F-C-G-H-... and then normal again for few seconds, and then again)." from this case https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1195382

And the very example is even shown in this video https://vimeo.com/271932549 captured by another user with same issue from https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1217350#answer-1112431

neither of those were answered anyway. I am bumping this issue as I have the same problem. I already tried to disable all addons, disable webgl, disable or throttle HW acceleration, refresh firefox, even tried to swithc to ESR version but none of these helped. I installed chrome, got the identical/functionally similiar addons and tried to watch youtube/twitch - it was going smooth even after longer period of time. Other players not based on html5 are playing just fine though, it is just that html5 player...and on twitch and yt...

I am using CSD on gnome3 on Arch Linux with all my close max min buttons moved to the left as they are on the Mac. Is there a way to accomplish the same thing in FF with CSD on? If I turn it off the button are where I expect them because it uses native decorations, but with it on they are on the right as is customary on MSWindows.

Firefox no longer seems to be syncing my bookmarks among devices. In particular, the bookmarks I add on my work iMac do not sync to my android phone or my home macbook pro. I have done the following things to attempt to get things working:

1. Turned off firefox sync on all devices and then back on. 2. Deleted my firefox sync account and recreated it. 3. Deleted and reinstalled firefox on both my android phone and my macbook pro

I have also gone to about:sync-log and see that I seem to have lots of sync errors. I've attached a screenshot of the sync-log screen. I can't seem to attach the txt file of the latest error log, so I'm attaching two screen shots of it as well.

If anyone can help me out, I'd certainly appreciate it!

Edit: Here's a pastebin link of the error log: https://pastebin.mozilla.org/9086433

During install, a Firefox addon asks for these permissions;

If I grant these permissions, could the author of this add-on access my email account data, emails and passwords while it's open on a Firefox tab?

Hi!

I find the flat, low-contrast, grey toolbar icons boring and a bit difficult to recognize. Most applications offer some form of relieve,for example with gimp it is just one click in the preferences to change to a colourful icon theme, intellij IDEA has a plugin to get rid of those bland, boring, dull grey things. Is there a way to install a different icon set in firefox quantum? As I understand it, complete themes have been abolished and there i not a word about how to replace them on the customization page.

Recently, I was forced to format my laptop PC. I didn't keep any files. I want to get my old bookmark collection on my recently formatted laptop. I know that the bookmarks still exist somewhere on a mozilla server somewhere because I still have my phone synced up and it can still access my Desktop Bookmarks folder with all of my bookmarks. I've signed into my firefox account again on my laptop, but none of my bookmarks or settings were returned. How can I force my current bookmarks (the default ones) to be overwritten by my old bookmarks that still exist somewhere in limbo?
