I have an android with Firefox installed, and a Mac where I also use Firefox. When I first installed Firefox on each, the bookmarks matched. I do the bulk of work on my laptop, but occasionally have articles I wish to bookmark on my phone. I have done a sync, but when I go to access the bookmarks on my phone, they are not updated to what is on my laptop.

When I check to see what devices I have connected through Firefox, my phone does not show up, and when I hit the link to "connect a device" all it does it take me to a link to send a text to invite my phone to install it. Which, it's already installed.

I really need these bookmarks to talk to each other properly. What am I missing?

I'm have Private Browsing set to delete all cookies and data after closing a session but I would like to allow certain website to keep certain cookies and keep my session open.

I haven't been able to find a way to do so, does anybody know if it's possible and how? And if it isn't how could it be requested for an upgrade?

Thank you.

Hi Folks, I recently had to change my slow POTS broadband to LTE broadband as its quicker, however the LTE connection is quite weak (rural UK), so i get a much faster speed for streaming at night, but sometimes establishing a session or initial connection can be a little troublesome.

Im studying from home all day, every day at present. I get perhaps 40% of my new tabs / web searches sending me a "The connection has timed out" error, which i have to refresh the page to try again. Usually i can live with this, as im used to poor broadband generally.

Problem - i have a timed aptitude test tomorrow. I cant use any other network connection as im not supposed to go anywhere with coronavirus.

Can anyone help me resolve the network timeout problem? Im doing practice tests and im now getting timeouts for the server to have received my answers! I dont want to fail the test because of network timeouts.

MacOS 10.15.4 - firefox browser 76.0.1

Any help would be MASSIVELY appreciated.

I won't check a box that opts me into observational and INTERVENTIONAL studies that I won't even be aware that I'm in since I don't look every 5 minutes at the settings and may do things like the evil sort of one fb ? did that changed your emotions.

That's a great example of why I moved to Firefox from Chrome and am wary of Facebook.

I'd be more than happy to check a box that says: "Please offer me any/all studies I may be eligible for including add'l questions to see if I'm eligible, with a reasonable stab at assent (not even informed consent). And of course whether data is anonymous (truly, as in after the study even if you wanted to you couldn't figure out which person was which), or not. Not anonymous may be fine....depending on the study. My very best, really, you're great....AND I'd be happy to discuss, advise (see below)...my 'toolbox' isn't simply biomedical. Darren


(Just me being pedantic now ignore this as you wish: And you say "study" ... I'm a researcher (sometimes)...IRB, grants, peer review, publications. Research is the "creation of generalizable knowledge." Is that what you're doing? I suspect you're doing more "quality improvement" where you figure out what works better for you...and SOMETIMES that is generalizeable knowledge (i.e., certain colors make people happy in every browser not Firefox specific), but do you publish it as peer reviewed research? Now, it's TOTALLY FINE if you don't and it's QI....but would specify that and not call it studies...call it...evaluating improvements or whatever. The use of the word 'study' and 'research' drive me nuts since when we talk to people about actual 'studies' and 'research' they conflate that with marketing evaluations of what makes us by more or which candidate we're interested in or how to sell things to us.)

its obvious that the last version of FF has setting issues. Something new in the config settings is preventing css mods from taking place. I know about the toolkit css item etc.... but there is something else that is not right. Maybe you should check with Apple before you release updates. Please find out what is is..you might have to talk to Apple and try different things on a Mac ....to confirm that css works.. I am running the latest.. I think its definitely a FF thing because it worked before and other fonts controlled by Mac are not having the problems that the bookmarks toolbar is having regarding css to enlarge the microscopic font that in on a Mac toolbar. If you cant find anything then I guess its time to go to Brave.

I have installed a new computer (Mac mini). I have synchronized with old computer (imac 2011). All bookmarks transferred successfully to new computer. In the right places etc (Bookmarks menu; Bookmarks toolbar etc ). All the headings in the toolbar are correct with all the bookmarks in the dropdown menus from the toolbar as before. The problem is when I go to ADD a New bookmark the old toolbar headings don't show up in the Add Bookmarks dropdown options. How do I add a new bookmark into a list of an existing toolbar heading or existing list from the toolbar ?

I can't use YouTube with Firefox on Mac. When I open YouTube, it acts like it is stuck and keeps reloading a previous page, over and over every 3 seconds so I can't click on anything. Strange. Yes, I cleared the Cache and it didn't help. I had an old mac and had the same problem and my new mac was just purchased this year. Any ideas?

I am getting an error message at the bottom of the page when I use Firefox. It says Mozilla Firefox seems slow... to... start. And wants me to click on a button to find out how to speed it up. Is this genuine and from Mozilla or is it a scam? I know I am probably sounding a bit paranoid but I am really careful these days. Cheers, Dave

Hello,

I trust my email finds you well.

On two occasions recently I googled something and when I click on the page I wish to visit, a popup appears with celebrations raining from the top of the screen and then a survey follows.

Please see the images I uploaded here.

Is this a virus / malware or legit or a popup that got past ad-block plus?

Looking forward to hearing from you. Schalk
