I realise from other answers that the Firefox account is for synching two or more copies of Firefox on different devices, but why does it not also allow one device to be 'resynched' with itself, in other words operate as a general backup in situations where a device is lost, stolen or catches fire etc.? It seems very hard to individually backup passwords, bookmarks etc. by copying multiple files, when the Synch system takes all these data and holds them encrypted, but seemingly won't allow them to be retrieved by the same user after a disaster...

I may have a misconception of how syncing works but I have a firefox account and I assumed that when I restored my computer and lost my bookmarks I could regain them when I signed in. This did not happen automatically and I'm not sure how to get the old synced bookmarks back. Please help. I apologize for the confusion.

So I've made a few changes in userChrome.css to resize the tab sizes with some code that I've collected. In summary, I've changed the height and width as well as hid the tab title.

The problem that I've run into is that the tabs will kinda glitch out and the extra space won't collapse when the tab is closed (as shown in one of the screenshots). It seems to have to do with setting the width of the tab, since when I comment out the css styles to make them normal size again, tabs close properly.

I'd appreciate any thoughts y'all have. Thanks

I have installed a Ricoh printer which I access (for printing etc) by an Ethernet connection. My router gives the printer an IP address through DHCP but when I try to log into the admin functions on the printer Firefox gives me the message: Error code: SSL_ERROR_WEAK_SERVER_EPHEMERAL_DH_KEY Despite the comment on the Mozilla help pages there is no option to "Report errors like this to help Mozilla ..." and it's definitely not a malicious website.

Another noob from Internet Explorer problem. In IE on the favorites bar the favorites show only as the site's logo, if there's one available. The image below shows WalMart, Amazon, Youtube, a folder and more logos. The site name appears only if one hovers over the logo. This allows more sites to be on the favorites bar. So far, I cannot discover whether FF has this ability or not.

Is this possible in FF?

Earthlink E-mail both old and new versions do not work properly in Firefox 57 and higher. The function tabs above any message (print, delete etc.) don't respond to clicking. They used to work just fine. Everything works in IE but I use Firefox. The Options are set to open tabs in new windows as always. Earthlink tech support says it's Firefox's problem.

I quite often do development work on the train, and disable wifi on my laptop. When I've done this, I quite often have to refresh a localhost domain several times before Firefox loads it correctly. It will either say it can't connect, or will load the page without any CSS. A further refresh will work, but this process always continues. Works fine in Chrome.

I'd appreciate any pointers to fixing this! Thanks
