Dear All

We have recently found out that Firefox doesn't sync with Google My Business listings as when you search for “Saffery Geneva” on Firefox it brings up “Saffery Champness SA”, while on Google it correctly appears as Saffery (Suisse) SA as per attached print screen.

Any idea why Firefox is not syncing with Google with respect to this listing?

Many thanks.

I am using Firefox version 125.0.3(64-bit). I am not able to access my saved passwords. It is asking me to log in when I am already logged in to my Firefox account. When using Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode I can access my saved passwords. How do I solve this problem? Moreover I am unable to add a Primary Password to protect my saved passwords. I have never tried to add a primary password before this problem.

In Firefox the date format is set at „month, day, year“, but I need „day, month, year“.

I tried all the solutions, I even installed Firefox - English (British) version, but nothing changes.

Can you also implement an alternative, to be able to choose between the 2 options?

Thank you very much.

To check my icloud email, I log into icloud.com, enter my password, got through a two step authorization process and ask to stay signed in. I successfully access my email messages. When opening a message that has a hyperlink, I lose the iclolud connection. The link opens in a new browser window, but when i return to the email I am frequently signed out. Apple support does not know what the issue is; they suggested a different browser. This does not seem to happen with Microsoft Edge - and I don't want to use it.

Thanks for your help David Bartold; dwb0224@icloud.com

Firefox Kiosk does not appear when I log in but does when I start it manually from the GNOME x-terminal

I have Ubuntu 22.04 (on a Dell Optiplex 3000) with a minimal installation. I downloaded Firefox 125, removed the SNAP Firefox and installed this Firefox with no issue. I can run "firefox --kiosk" and Firefox runs in kiosk mode with no issue.

I have made some changes in the "about:config" part of Firefox. I have also made some changes to the Ubuntu keyboard shortcut list. There is only one user created on this system and I have configured Ubuntu to login this user automatically upon reboot.

However, if I setup Firefox --kiosk to start automatically (I use the gnome-session-properties application to achieve this) and then reboot, Firefox does run, but it does not appear on the screen. If I enter the "switch windows" keyboard shortcut (ALT-TAB), the Firefox kiosk appears.

So, is this something I can fix by changing the Firefox configuration, or is it an Ubuntu configuration change. If so, can anyone tell me what I should do, or have an idea how to debug this?

On every new release of an update for Firefox, the update process deletes all of my saved cookies that I have established an exception for. I do this so that I don't have to continually enter my user name and password for sites that I visit regularly. The developers must change the updates so that the exceptions carryover to the new version of Firefox.

I'm about to give up on Firefox.

While Firefox is the browser of my choice, its bugs are a constant source of frustration. When navigating on YouTube, I'll suddenly have it stop loading properly and just load more or less blank. You can see this in the image attached. To rectify this problem, I'll need to quit Firefox completely and run a cleaner (WiseCleaner, in my instance) so that it loads correctly again. This happens across several computers I have.

As I game, I usually dual-monitor to watch things on YouTube or Twitch simultaneously. When watching Twitch with Firefox, I noticed that the video would stutter or freeze while the audio continued. I checked Task Manager and found CPU usage to be extremely high. I cannot recreate this problem now as my second monitor is in the repair shop.

Firefox is one of the only few alternatives to a Chromium-based browser. As I don't like Google policies on ad-blockers, tracking, and so on, I'd like to stay away from anything Chromium-based. But it's becoming increasingly difficult to do so, as the user experience in Firefox is so bad, especially when using YouTube, one of my main browsing activities.

I tried turning off hardware acceleration, but this did nothing. I've reinstalled Firefox, but as this happens across several unconnected browsers, I cannot think this is a local problem. What to do?

Some years ago I had to replace my PC and thought - Wonderful - just use sync to bring back all my tabs etc into the new PC...

The long and the short of it (in the past), was that Firefox decided that the new PC was the one to be synchronising source, and promptly removed all the apps/tabs etc. so sync was in line with the new PC - erasing all the app data. I understand there is no 'Master' sync account.

The question is, how can I stop Firefox initially migrating the Firefox app data in the wrong direction? I know that the app/tab data is currently still correct as my laptop still has all my apps etc. Is there some way to stop Firefox thinking the latest clean browser on the new PC has the correct (None) apps etc? Has the laptop to be logged-in and currently on-line before starting the new PC with Firefox? Is there a process to follow with a new 'un-synced' PC?

Sorry if I'm making things sound difficult, but don't want to loose everything which is currently correct and still these within sync data. It's maybe something that can't happen in these later versions of Firefox, but I want to be sure before logging in my new 'Blank' PC.

I've received my new PC and will be migrating from my old PC (Windows 10) to the new PC with Windows 11.

I use local folders in Thunderbird to keep various projects separate and more easy to manage. I have copied the current Thunderbird profile on to an external hard disk, I have found the location of the local folders and they reflect the structure in the Thunderbird screen I see. Thunderbird has been unstable for a few weeks so I would prefer a clean install but don't want to lose a lot of content that I still need.

1. Is there a way to copy over just the local folders, eg export them, rather than the whole profile? I deliberately haven't cleaned the server recently so that I can get back emails that still are in the in_tray but once they are in local folders they disappear from the Yahoo server. 2. Is there anything else significant I should be aware of before migrating? There is a backup on Mozilla but I prefer a clean install.

Thanks in advance,

Anne
