Hi,

For some time now, whenever I start a new window in Firefox it automatically loads all my bookmarks as new tabs! So instead of getting a new and empty window I get a window with ~25 tabs.

This also happens when I start FireFox in safe mode. When I click “New private window” I get an empty new window.

I set up two Windows accounts on my Windows 10 and synced the passwords and settings in only one account. To my surprise, when I login in the second account, every login and password was there without the master password. This means that any one using that account can see my password.

I think this is a really serious security hole and Firefox should fix it as soon as possible.

firefox 69.0.1 on a HP8000e SFF3 Ghz, Ice dragon works normally when I switch from a 'dead' fiirefox, but does not allow adblock plus. When I return to firefox, it usually works normally. Not sure if it's me or firefox. Have tried refreshing and lost themes and settings. It didn't seem to work for long. Thank you for any assistance. Will try with extensions disabled next time it occurs.

I have a normally used Windows 10 PC that I consider my standard configuration for Firefox. I WILL CALL IT PC A. I have another, rarely used PC which I WILL CALL B. The Firefox configuration on PC B is often not as up to date as PC A and may have old and outdated Add-ons, bookmarks, and tool bar configurations. When I bring up PC B and start Firefox, it will quickly start the syncing process (since I can no longer log off of Firefox - a very bad idea, by the way). Whether the sync starts immediately or not, how do I specify that PC B will always sync to PC A's profile and not try to update PC A with its old and invalid configuration?

Website logon credentials are being reset after the use of the reload function - requiring the user to log back in to the comments section after each reload of the web page. In particular, credentials for DISCUS, which is very popular "comment" software used by many websites, is unable to maintain the users credentials after a reload...requiring the user to log back in each time. More info on this software is at https://disqus.com. NOTE: Addons have not changed since I was on 68.0.1 where this problem was not observed.
