Hi

Running Firefox 71.0 (64 bit)

Well seems Firefox has been messing this up again.

Anyone have the new work around solution to get my tabs back on the bottom again. They were fine this morning then shut down and went out to lunch and when I came back they were back on the top again after months of being where I wanted them below my bookmark bar.

Thoughts on this?

Thanks Dave

Sync'ing with ONE Service account?

I have a disability and totally forgot about this question BUT it is still an issue I would like to find a resolution too, so I am going to try to restate it -- but know I stopped working 2 years ago ... so maybe a resolution isnt horribly required :P


My old question: (This is an issue regardless of platform - MacOS, Linux, or Windows...)


I do a lot of OS switching - I test various Linux distros on my (was 5) but now 3 laptops and one really old 32 bit system for my mother-in-law and I am wondering if I can use FireFox Accounts over and over without making a new service device every time I need something from FF Accts :P (I actually stopped using Sync mainly because of this 'Sync' issue -- how do I know what I have is actually being sync'ed?) I have learned to live with uncertainty not because Firefox is bad or anything but because "I want to be in control of my Data, not someone else...I had thought FF Sync would help me do that but I fear it hasnt and maybe because of my disability it has just gotten worse ..." ... not to even mention FF dropped FF Lockwise - which I loved!  :P

Anyways, this has bugged my off and on for a long time but I have mostly ignored the issue ... until a couple of years ago I discovered I had like 20+ some odd devices on my account -- going back 3+ years or more. Now, I signed out of many of them and I am down to about 15 -- mostly because I am a little confused about how FF Accts determines what to sync and when I start Sync are all of them brought back? Even from 6+ months ago? The one's that were years old I signed out of and deleted but still ... and so, since I use FF for testing and I thought that there shouldn't be that much in each 'sync' test device ... it is sort of confusing...

So, is there a way to use FF Accts 'sync' to get my data to a new device without making a new 'synced' device?

Thx/Bill

PS - in the FF past releases I got what I wanted by just copying the .mozilla directory to the new system but that broke a few releases ago :P too bad stuff has to change :(

Also, please understand that I am on Android, iOS, MacOS, and Linux daily so trying to 'gather' what I am submitting this question on will not lend itself to trying to solve my insanity >< Sorry!

PPS - I have not tried the first solution offered in the old question yet... I am leaning toward giving up on Sync and just using HTML Bookmark files ... it is messier but I know it is my data - unchanged and unyielding :P Thanks  :)

Team,

   Recently I logged into my Firefox account as to where I had likely over 60 URL favorites fully categorized.  It now apparent that I would like to have a systems administrator to see if we could manually look through my history and have my old favorites I have in the system able to restore and shoot back to me. Its worth it as It took 2 weeks to have these favorites created and organized and I am sortof at a work stoppage due to this issue.
 Anyone ever had this kind of issue escalated or have a techie with mozilla able to restore back something that may have been over-written or over synced and now when I login no longer shows my URLs that I have all categorized and favorite-ed?

Robert
