Firefox sync has not been working for me for some time, and I'd like to get it operational again. I'm trying to sync between a Mac Pro (FF 81.0.2), a MacBook Pro (FF 81.0.2) and an iPhone 6 (FF Daylight 29.0). Nothing whatsover syncs.

So far, I've updated all browsers, and re-paired the iPhone with the QR code. I've also logged out of my FF accounts at the same time on all devices, and back in again. (That's what's recommended at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-sync-troubleshooting-and-tips#w_i-set-up-firefox-sync-but-nothing-is-syncing, though that links to a page that is said to be out of date).

I can't see any obvious errors in the computer names, or anything else.

Any suggestion for further investigation, please?

Is this a Firefox 9.01 problem or a problem of the website? I've never had a problem using Firefox on this site. Thank you.

I have been getting Pop Up Emails from a site that says it's conducting surveys or offering discounts to click on and proceed to another site. It usually says it's conducting the survey for a known company like Quest, or often uses the name of the company site I'm trying to go to. I have tried restricting cookies, pop up's , etc. but can't seem to get rid of this annoying site. I even had it come up 3 times while trying to navigate the Firefox site. Ex.address .... http://spinandwin.com-eso.pw/us/initial_p.php?t=rp

How do I stop or block this site? Thanks, CCS

I have a new laptop. Each time I restart I have to sign back onto Firefox Sync. My old computer is automatically signed in which is way more convenient.

I saw one article that said to change the 'history' settings to 'use custom settings for history' with a few additional steps. I have tried this with no change in the programs behavior. Any thoughts?

Thank you,

I haven't been able to find a way to do so, does anybody know if it's possible and how? And if it isn't how could it be requested for an upgrade?

Thank you.

After having spent a fair amount of time searching to find out why javascript doesn't seem to be enabled by default, I'm perplexed. Other applications, Safari for example don't require any setup to use javaScript as far as I can tell.
