I'm on the latest version of Firefox, 106.1, and I'm missing the Firefox View button on my MacBook Pro 13". It is showing on my Mac Mini M1, and both are logged in and syncing properly using my Firefox account.

When I type in about:firefoxview on my MacBook Pro in the URL bar, I see the page but noticed it says "New colorways are on the way" on the right. On my Mac Mini, I see the "Independent Voices" text and an option to "Try colorways".

Bug? Some weird setting on my MacBook? Both are running macOS Monterey, 12.6.

Don't mean to complain about such a trivial thing, but on macOS the new icon for Firefox as of 106 just doesn't look right. It was PERFECT before this. Yes, I know I can copy and paste the old one into the new and it's problem solved, but figured I'd post here to see what everyone else thinks. Again, it's not the end of the world, but it just doesn't look right.

Is there a toggle to turn off the purple theme in private windows? As an elderly person I find it hard to see things and it's quite irritating to say the least. This only started showing up in my Windows 10 and my linux systems in FF Version 106 and is also violating my preferences to have a totally blank page when a new private window is opened. Suggestions would be most appreciated.

Bookmarks that I have added do not show up in the Bookmarks Menu folder that I have chosen using Triple bar menu_Bookmarks_Bookmark Current Tab. I have taken the search bookmarks to find the correct bookmark but this is getting tedious. I have also discovered that the folders located in the Sidebar Listing don't agree with the Bookmarks Menu on the toolbar.

A sample of four folders: FOLDER Qty Per Sidebar Qty Per Bookmark Menu A 16 6 (Some but not all in the sidebar belong here.) B 9 5 (Some but not all in the sidebar belong here.) C 8 8 Hooray a good match! D (Other BM) 29 25

Some of the entries in the sidebar have no relation to the folder subject. While I may have put some entries in the wrong place the two folders with the same name should have the same bookmarks displayed. At least that is my expectation. This happened soon after an update.

There are no incorrect entries in the Bookmarks Menu bar.

(i can use the tool, but the device options of my iphone disappeared)


And then , i try to config my account, like remove account no longer use, but not archive the goal of sync between A's firefox with my iphone's firefox.
