Hi all.

My sync is only sometimes working. I notice that when saving a bookmark and trying to find it on another device. I sometimes have to manually resync it or wait for a few days to get it shown on my other devices. Same with the tab sharing across devices.. In most cases it doesn't work at all..

Here is a current sync-log: https://pastebin.com/TWugtAbm

Hello, so I have some 4-5 add ons installed on my Windows computer and Linux machine. They both show up and sync well when I install or re-install Firefox when needed. But recently, I got a Mac and installed Firefox, logged in with my account and to my surprise it didn't sync all of the extensions. I waited, then quit and restarted the browser, still no luck. Even after shutting down the computer and then trying did nothing. I checked update despite having just downloaded but no luck yet. Must be some bug so please fix it

I use the read aloud function of Firefox regularly and it keeps skipping important parts of the texts! Attached is a screencap of the article I was reading today, the most recent example of this (https://www.analystnews.org/posts/to-understand-the-israel-palestine-conflict-start-with-these-two-simple-questions). I have highlighted the sentence the reader skipped. Do I have a setting not marked properly? What can be done to fix this?

Profile lost all data (bookmarks, extensions, everything)

I use a MacBook Pro. I recently created a new profile for Firefox (for work purposes) and set it as the default profile, because I'm trying to get off Chrome entirely. The preexisting no-longer-default profile contained all my "personal" data - bookmarks, extensions, etc. Continued using both profiles for about a week with no issues. Last night my MacBook updated and when I reopened Firefox, the new default profile was fine, but when I went into about:profiles and launched the secondary profile in a new browser, it was completely empty - no history, no bookmarks, no extensions, nothing. That's at least a year's worth of data completely gone. I've looked through support articles and past folks' questions and am just completely lost as to how to restore it or what went wrong. If it's not possible to restore that data, how can I at least prevent this from happening again? I've very much lost trust in Firefox profiles because of this. Help please?

Whenever I open a new tab or window, I'm greeted with the Firefox home screen, which displays various shortcut tiles.

Currently, I have a shortcut for Amazon, which includes a handy blue magnifying glass symbol 🔎 indicating it's a search shortcut and not a shortcut that will take me to an URL. I'm looking to set up similar search shortcuts for YouTube and Google. I've attached an image below for reference.

If anyone is familiar with how to customize these search shortcuts in Firefox, your guidance would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you have any tips or steps to follow.

Hey guys, thanks for the help in advance.

This problem occurred recently and it's quite a pain in the ass. I'm using Macbook Pro 14 inches with M1 Max chip. Lately when I work, I have to open quite many urls at the same time, and my mac went crazy hot because of firefox's insane cpu usage. I tried what's suggested to turn off the acceleration mode, but still, nothing changes.

Is there still anything I can do to resolve it? or I just switch to other browser?

Greetings, all,

I get this error messsage:

<We are unable to complete your request. Our system is currently unavailable.Please try again later.>

when i try to log on to my USAA bank accounts.

Tech support at the bank worked with me for an hour. We changed password, cleared the cache for the bank's apps, restarted Firefox, restarted the computer, all to no avail. I declined to try Google, simply because i don't trust it. Tech support person said another bank customer had had same problem and just changed browsers, which i don't want to do.

TIA for any help.

After the most recent MAC OSX update ( ) all of my fonts in Firefox have changed to a weird arabic font or something. I've un-checked the "allow website to select font" option and gone so far as to completely uninstall and reinstall FF (removed cache, application data, etc).

If I can't figure out what the heck is going on, I'm about to ditch this and switch to Chrome. Please help. ScreenCap ScreenCap
