I have Mozilla sync'd between my (old) laptop and my phone, and it was a lovely pairing. Old laptop got stolen earlier today, and in setting up my new laptop, I forgot my old password and ended up resetting the password to Firefox Sync on the new computer. I'll hit 'sync now' and nothing happens, no favorites, no tabs, no recent session, nothing.

This computer is running the latest version of mint, and my old computer was running mint 13 I believe. It hasn't been updated in ages but was happily puttering along while I blissfully neglected to update the software to a newer version which may overwork that relic.

I want to totally delete this annoying feature off my Firefox. Firefox used to be cool. I could customize anything I wanted. Now this is forced on me like rape. All I see is this annoying green plus sign everywhere. How do I delete this permanently, not hide, off Firefox.

I've already updated Firefox, ensured javascript is enabled, cleared chache and cookies, updated Java, removed and reinstalled pin it button, etc. Does anyone have any real solutions as to why the button is not visible? Don't usually use Firefox, prefer internet explorer, but don't have the choice here, have to use Firefox....

Not so much a question, rather a statement as it solves a problem of almost a year's standing. Having been unable to use Rapport for months since Firefox 41, in common with many other Firefox users, I was amazed to open Firefox 46.0.1 this morning to find Rapport working perfectly. Hope it works for other frustrated users as well :)

How do I get back my favourites file & be able to save in favourites instead of a stupid pocket which I don't want ?

I use favourites & I must have clicked on something, so now all I get where the "save in favourites" little icon used to be, is something about a pocket which I don't have time nor inclination to fuss over. I was perfectly happy with just having favourites the way it was. But now I cannot even locate my favourites menu.

Why do they keep changing things ??

Thanks.

I've migrated my AMO account to Firefox Account, but i was negatively surprised that we are not allowed to change our email address. We are advised to create a new account, and abandon (or delete) the old one, so is there really no way to keep your reviews attached to your current account now?

Thanks for any help. A friend's email was hacked. She has changed the password. The only damage she has found so far has been that emails were sent to people in her contact list. Along with the other things she is doing, does she also need to change her email address and get her an entirely new email account? Also, she was concerned about asking the question herself as she isn't sure if she would pass any virus to others. Do you know if she is right not to use the forum since this happened to her email? Does she need to change her email account/address?

I apologize if this isn't an appropriate question for this forum. Thanks.

After a recent refresh of my firefox brower, the Awesome Bar seems to be visually different. Prior to the refresh when search it displayed similar to the way the awesome bar is shown on the help page. However now it instead shows results in a thinner visual, and with the url upfront and description on it's side, barely showing.

If there is any way to return it to it's prior visual, i would like to know. I have posted an image of how it currently looks like.
