I have downloaded and installed the actual Firefox to the new computer under the ugly Windows 10. Now I want to take all the settings and history from the good old computer under Windows 7 to the new one. Both personal computers are connected via a router (Fritzbox). While installing on the new computer Firefox offered to synchronize settings et cetera with a second device, and asked for the mobile telefone number. Another device was not offered. Is there a solution or have I to transfer all data by hand?


PS: I am 77 years old and my eyes are not so good anymore. That's why I don´t use a smartphone

I can't seem to figure out how to have the desktop shortcut for Firefox open a new window even when I have a window already open. As it is, when I click on the shortcut when I have a Firefox window already open, it simply opens a new tab. I do want to keep links opening in new tabs, I just want to be able to open a new window with the shortcut. Is there a way of doing this?

I'm working with Windows 10 Home on a Lenovo laptop.

Hello There,

I have been trying to figure out why videos that are embedded on certain sites do not show up on Firefox however they show up in Chrome?

I've gone through everything listed here:

and

A few key notes, even when in safe mode, the video problem still persists. But only on specific websites (squarespace sites). I can see videos through websites like Zoom, Shaw Bluewave, youtube, etc etc. But for some reason on this one site I can't get videos to display to play. Yet when I go to Chrome it's there and fine. So it's an issue with Firefox. I'm not sure how to fix it at this point.

I've unchecked Use recommended performance settings. I've switched the default theme I've disabled extensions (which fixed another issue of not displaying images) I've refreshed Firefox I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox I've checked all my graphics drives (they're all there and working)

At this point I'm not sure what to do. Can you please let me know if you have any recommendations?

Cheers Chantal

I have my plugins synced through Firefox Sync. For development I'm using Firefox Developer Edition (FDE).

There are times I do not want to have all plugins en-/disabled in all browser. e.g. I don't need a form filler plugin all the time in my regular FF instance. But I mostly need it all day in the FDE instance.

Problem starts by disabling a plugin in the regular FF instance. Because this disables the plugin through sync in all other instances.

I'm looking for s possibility to disable plugins "locally". So only disable it for the currently running FF instance, and not propagate the state through sync.

A separate "DEV profile" might help, but I don't want to deal with sep. profiles, as the tabs would be synced in this different profile for example.

I can imagine that this is kind of an edge case scenario. But maybe somebody knows a way around this.
