I was installing Firefox version 43.0.1. I did not understand what Sync was. I partially filled out the password and got as far as opening the email sent me on the same computer. I could go no further with sync. I tried the help to remove the sync and clicked on the expand menu button but my email address did not appear on this menu. The problem is that I cannot access any of my website addresses. It just keeps searching and I believe it's because this partially set up sync is locking me out. I need to know how to totally cancel and remove the Sync from my account. I only have one device that I access the internet with. Thank you.

Not allowing unsigned add-ons post version 44 is a walled garden approach which will stop me using Firefox

I have been using Firefox since version 1. I really don't like the way Google is taking over the internet, but Firefox is just getting worse and worse every version for my windows client. I'm not looking for new features or added value as my reason to use Firefox, my main motivation is political, I just want something that isn't Chrome.

For me, unsigned add-ons being disallowed from version 44 is a bad idea, as I currently use a bunch of them to fix things which are broken in Firefox, and I won't be able to upgrade Firefox after that, so I'll eventually have to stop using it. I'm using open source software so I can customise, not how someone else allows me to customise it.

Oh, it's not all bad news, Fennec for android 5.1 is now more stable than the endlessly crashing mess it was, thanks.

I have already tried refreshing Firefox and using safe mode. Neither of these solves the problem.

Synchs Run Amok? Corrupts Profiles, Setting Access and Synching. Any Available Sync-In-A-Can Solutions?

iMac to MacBook Pro Syncs:

After a synch, target (MacBook Pro) launched in Default (instead of my selected theme) and settings could not be accessed by clicking on any of them). Also, no images would appear in any website. (FF Default all-grey browser is not usable for me because of poor eyesight and the need for more color and contrast in the mix).

Consultant troubleshot all my Extensions on both devices (tossing many extensions and most themes) then synced again. Still no images and prefs still unavailable by clicking on them.

I kept one seemingly safe theme and was able to have both devices stabilize their respective themes and regained access to settings.

We tried to sync once with an added test bookmark.

He got the theme to launch and the images to appear and then we synced .

Boom! Back to square one.

Finally he got both devices to work independently so we banned any syncing. Fine, except that I REQUIRE syncs.

1) Any solutions to the failure to synch the Profiles?

2) Any easy syncing strategies other than don't involve digging into the Library files and manually swapping folders around. It works but too much room for tired eyes at night.

Any decent after-market apps that will do just the Profile synch, both ways?

Many thanks.
