Hi all.

My sync is only sometimes working. I notice that when saving a bookmark and trying to find it on another device. I sometimes have to manually resync it or wait for a few days to get it shown on my other devices. Same with the tab sharing across devices.. In most cases it doesn't work at all..

Here is a current sync-log: https://pastebin.com/TWugtAbm

Hi,

it seems to me that there are quite a few questions in the forum about the backgound update process. It has bugged me for a long time that my Firefox would every now and then just refuse to open a new page and force me to restart.

Only now did I learn that this changes when de-selecting the (recommended) "automatically install updates" option. The wording used does not make clear that automatically installing updates sometimes renders Firefox inoperable until a restart. I would love to see at least a "learn more" link there? I chose "automatically" but then was cursing every time Firefox refused to open a new page in the middle of my work. Then I failed to connect this to the choice I had made weeks or months back.

install and migration/Update Firefox to the latest release https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-release suggests that on Windows there is a way to have automatic updates without forcing a restart in the middle of the workflow? I assume this is through some little helper process, which perhaps is not popular on MacOS.

But: would it not be possible to at least point to these options from the message that says that Firefox needs to restart so people know they have a choice? Even better would be to have a "not now" button but I realize there might be technical reasons why we cannot have that.

When attempting to type text in a browser, two things happen, simultaneously when I hit the space bar, it wont allow me to actually ad a space and secondly it places a rectangular box on the screen. I have tried to reset defaults but nothing seems to eliminate the issue.

Hey all,

I have 4 devices connected to Firefox Sync.

  1. Mac deskop
  2. Mac laptop
  3. iPhone
  4. iPad

It appears that the sync will sync extensions between the deskop and laptop ok, but not tabs. Both computers can see synced tabs from the mobile devices but not from each other.

I have logged out and in, turned on sync and off and on again, changed device names just to see if that refreshed things, removed them from the logged in list to kick them out and then logged in again, changed the tick boxes for sync items and yet tabs will not sync.

When I look under History > Synced Tabs I see the two mobile devices and their tabs but I don't even see the other Mac listed, let alone its tabs.

Help appreciated.

Hi, I use google chrome for work and firefox for personal use. I did not want firefox to import my bookmarks from Googe Chrome but somehow it did. Do I have to remove these bookmarks one at a time? And how do I prevent this from happening again?

Firefox will NOT LET ME assign a downloads folder, and doesn't ever ask where to save (though that IS checked). There is NOTHING the support base or community I can find addressing this. It tells you to check "ask" and or to assign a downloads folder. Well, I Have checked "ask" and it doesn't ask. And it will not let me select a downloads folder.

And all downloads "fail." So I cannot use Firefox io download anything.

This is a bug. The settings do not work.

I have updated to latest version, this has been the case thru multiple versions. I am using a M1 Macbook pro with Monterey OS.

My screen has been zooming in without me doing anything at all. It's done this for almost a year. I can always keyboard shortcut it back to the 100% size with no problem, but the issue is frustrating! I'm on a Apple iMac and I keep my operating system as well as Firefox updated to the latest versions. My iOS is Ventura 13.5.2, and my Firefox is 118.0.1

Now today it's zooming in and out without me even touching the mouse or keypad. I have a video of it doing this that I took with my phone but I can't upload it because it says it's not a supported file type.

Anyone else experiencing these problems? Any ideas how to put an end to this problem completely?

I use firefox on my mac to connect to the webgui on proxmox and casaos. Up until the recent update everything works great. Now, however, all I get is a blank screen with no activity. The same bookmark works great in safari and brave browser. I tried deleting the cache and reloading everything as well as the certs related to the websites. I even deleted firefox and reloaded and got the same behavior.

Doesnt happen with firefox on my linux or windows machines, only the macos. Doesnt happen on other browsers but I would like to keep using firefox.

I am trying to use a CAC/PIV reader to authenticate and access a Microsoft OWA site. This process works fine on both Chrome and Safari but I'd prefer to use Firefox. So far, I've installed and loaded the Keychain-PKCS11 library and restarted the browser. When I start the browser--before trying to go to any page--I get this error:

"Please authenticate to the token “[TOKEN NAME REDACTED]”. How to do so depends on the token (for example, using a fingerprint reader or entering a code with a keypad)."

When I go to the log-in page and select the "login with CAC" option, Firefox returns a certificate-not-found error.
