I always login to firefox account with sync ON. Recently I've to switched multiple machines, till last machine I was able to get my all saved bookmarks after login+sync. But all of a sudden on new machine when I tried to retrieve bookmarks, I found nothing even after days with sync ON. Is there any way to retrieve them?

FYI. I've used both Firefox main and developer edition, unable to get back bookmarks on either.

-Thanks Mohan

Using Firefox 84.0.2, Mac OS 11.1 Big Sur. When using Amazon Prime Video to access CBS All Access, I open Firefox, go to the proper Amazon Video address, sign in to my account, click the program to be watched, and click the full screen icon *in the video*, but the tool bar does not disappear.

Prior to updating to OS 11.1, this worked perfectly: it would go to full screen.

Now, I need to upon opening the browser, use the Firefox prefs, and click the full screen icon first. Then, when the program screen opens and content is played, I can click the full screen icon *in the video screen* and it makes the toolbar disappear.

Ok, I know this is a first world problem, but I liked the one click approach better than the two click.

Is there a way to get back to the one click solution? It seemed Firefox was remembering what to do before (?) before the update.

Hello!

"Last seen before X ..." is not updated in the Firefox account ("https://accounts.firefox.com" -> "Devices & Apps") with Windows-/Linux-Firefox 84 Version !

For Firefox Android-App and ESR-Version "Last seen before X" is already updated in the Firefox account!

I think this problem already existed in an older version of Firefox!?

I just updated from 55 to 84. Immediately the video driver started crashing. After three crashes, the video driver bans Firefox from using video equipment. It still works but the CPU usage in YouTube is up and the fan is spinning all the time, which it didn't do before the update. I reinstalled video card driver. I reinstalled video accelerator driver. I reinstalled the damn firefox too and then I did a clean installation. NOTHING works. Any advice? Or is it yet another "unexplained" problem that will never be solved?

In Firefox 84.0.2 I tried to access an old YouTube account from a gmail email. it signed me out and I have to change the password to get back in to gmail. It gave me message about "a suspicious app, etc." but I KNOW I don't have any suspicious anything on my new Macbook Pro. I finally realized that on Chrome I can stay signed in, but in Firefox, every time I try to sign in with the changed password, it goes through the whole thing again. I want to use Firefox, but right now I want to be able to access my email! I also don't want to have to stay signed in. Also, I was on a new device, AND in another country -- Apple could not help me (just said to change password), and I didn't have Chrome on my new Mac at that point, though probably should have tried it before all the changing....

Anyway, I looked up everything I could. The checkbox that the directions at one point said to uncheck isn't in my screen in Firefox 84.0.2. Thanks.

Firefox was blocking a redirect when I clicked on an OFAC email to their legitimate website. Searching, I came up with this article, and WANT TO OFFER A TIP for other readers: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1253651

It states:

If you are getting a blank page or annoying prompts to Allow a redirect, here's how you can turn the redirect block off: (1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk. (2) In the search box above the list, type or paste access and pause while the list is filtered (3) If the accessibility.blockautorefresh preference is bolded and "modified" or "user set" to true, double-click it to restore the default value of false

The page threw an error that it was blocked - no offer to allow it. The referenced setting was already turned off (false) in my browser, so I toggled it OFF AND BACK ON.

This worked.

Strangely some of the icons for my bookmarks have gone missing. They are all present on each tab but missing on the drop down list. I have tried finding the places.sqlite file in my profiles folder but it doesn't seem to exist. I am running v.84.0.2 (64 bit). Has anyone any idea why the icons are missing from one list and not missing from the tabs, I would have thought they would all be stored in the same place and come from the same 'pool' of data? Attached screenshots of tabs showing the icon and the drop down list with generic wireframe globe icon. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi, I received an email this morning supposedly from mozilla support which stated there was a reply to a question I posted here about 5 years ago. Not the kind of person to click links in emails I signed in directly to my Firefox account and searched for replies to my original question and did not see a reply from the poster who was mentioned the email. How can I determine if this email is actually from mozilla and if it is not what should I do with it? I did check my email using the Firefox Monitor and nothing showed up. Thank you.

So, I accidentally clicked a link that takes me to a site I have never logged into. Firefox prompts me with 3 userids. One is more or less a throwaway, but two are for sites I want to be secure.

I have disabled the form history in options. I have selected each item and tried either delete or shift-delete. None of these options work.

The site continues to present me with 3 userid options.

I hope this is not a major security threat since I am the only user on this computer and the site is one I have never visited, but it worries me nonetheless that I cannot remove the Firefox suggestions.
