Hello. I have Firefox on my 3 devices: laptop Win10, desktop Win10 and iPhone IOS 13.3.

I had no problems before. But now I can't sync anything. I click "sync now" and nothing happens. The last successful sync on IOS device was on 13/01/20. I tried reinstall iPhone Firefox and now I have no bookmarks on my phone. I checked about:sync-log on my desktop. All errors are here: https://yadi.sk/d/mX_YM-JptfmLvA

With the newest firefox (72.0.2) I notice the tabs changing color as the mouse passes over them. A sort of greyish overlay appears over the background that is present before the mouse crosses into the tab. The selected tab does not change color; all the others do. This is really distracting to me; I never noticed it before. How do I get it to stop? (userchrome methods are fine.)

Very recently there is an annoying pop up (despite my settings for blocking pops up and virtually everything else) called Maps and Directions Online Promos. I have removed it from my toolbar and it is hidden, but it exists and performing. Can I delete this new tool, or at least stop it from functioning? I'm considering dropping FireFox as my browser which I have used for years because of this.

FF still not fully loading some sites that other browsers open even after following the instructions in the article. (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can) Example: site of large retailer gives a 404 message, medical blog site loads but scrollbar loads then disappears so no navigation. The first is a recent site and second I have visited for some time. Internet security is Norton Security. It's on auto-update plus I manually update weekly. I also am an Office 365 subscriber. These sites load successfully in Chrome and IE.

Hi. I just added a new bookmark subfolder, and want to move it up to a new position within it's folder. When I try to drag and drop it in the Bookmark Sidebar (as you can do in Google Chrome), it won't move. Is it possible to organize bookmark folders by moving them in Firefox, and if so, how can it be done?

As above. My guess is I have tool bar on left side of screen and Firefox thinks it is on bottom and leaving room. First image is screen when I expand manually to full size. Second image is what screen looks like after clicking max box. Note second uses default background color I picked. on bottom is part of Word Window that I shouldn't be seeing.

I used to get my PDF bank statements with no problem. Recently I go into the bank's site, ask for the statement, and instead of seeing the actual statement I see a screen like the one in the attached image. I called the bank and they said it was an issue with the new version of Firefox, and I was able to access the statements using the Edge browser. How can I fix this in Firefox? I use Win 10 64 bit.

I prefer Firefox to Chrome but Chrome has it this way for preferences and history, where you can even bookmark it. It treats history, settings and downloads as a page or a tab in its own right, which can be bookmarked, which I prefer. I was wondering if you could do this for FireFox, or via an add-on or if a request could be issued.

Hello: FF dev build 73.0b7 w10p. (No stable on this mac - yes mac). I want to remove from the address bar, the 2 icons taking up space in the address bar, that I never use. Do I need to create a user file .css? I can if nec. The 2 icons are to the L of the addr. bar 1- "no trackers known..." & 2- "verified by amazon". The "remove" context menu item is grayed out. -What I really want is to SEE the address I'm typing into the address bar, when FF is NOT in full monitor pg mode. 23" W monitor & I often have FF in only 1/2 of the full monitor (so I can see another non-related window at same time). But only the down carot is visible in this "1/2 mode' status & I can't see anything of what I type, nor anything in the address bar already. I use the address bar search like 99% of the time & I really like this shortcut! (If it was fully useful, in 1/2 mode, even more). My guess is that removing those unused icons will allow more space in addr. bar to see what I'm typing -- right? Thank you.

I've had no problem with Firefox until yesterday. When I right-click the Firefox icon it won't open a new window. I've never had this problem before. At the time this occurred I started having problems with the Windows 10 start up not opening and not displaying my apps and the Windows Picture editor presenting me with a black screen and not allowing me to import photos from my camera or iPhone. I uninstalled and re-installed Firefox and it still doesn't open a new window when I right click the icon. I can't find information on how to solve this anywhere and am hoping someone here can help me. Thank you for any help you can provide.

somehow the bookmarks toolbar on chrome now reflects my Firefox bookmarks and all my chrome bookmarks seem to have been sent to the end of the "merged" bookmarks toolbar. to find them i need to hit the >> and scroll down a long list.

If i move them around on chrome or firefox the changes are reflected on the other browser.

If i delete one it deletes from both.

How do i unlink the two, and how the heck did they become linked?

I run two different browsers at work for different purposes so each has a different set of required bookmarks.

Windows 10 64 bit, Firefox 7.0.2 After I log into an Etrade account, if I click on any link (such as a stock symbol) within the account, I am returned to the Etrade login page. If I use the back button on the browser I am returned to the page I was on (I was not logged out). I never can get to the stock symbol or other link within Etrade. I have tried changing every add on or extension change (especially security settings), refreshing Firefox, running in safe mode and actually reinstalling Firefox without success. I think I have seen this on other websites also, but this type action does not happen on all websites. This does not happen when using Chrome.
