Sync - data lost - strategy to restore data wanted

I have used sync for long on several devices and different operating systems (Win 7, Win 10, IOS) in parallel. Most interesting and useful is for me synchronisation of the toolbars with Bookmarks. It worked fine up to today. Today I opened Firefox and found my bookmarks as they were about two years ago. Oops... so I tried to synchronize but failed. No changes were applied to my bookmarks. I assume, my bookmarks are also being stored on several other devices I used for Firefox. However the newest sinchronization on the mozilla server does not contain the accurate valuable data. How can I manage to save sync data from a destinct device to the sync server and determine that as the current data set to be valid for synchronization with all my other devices? In other words: set the direction for synchronization. I did not find this option on my current (82.0.3 (64-Bit)) installation. Could anybody help me? Thanks Juergen

Upon the last update (v.83), my favourite Flash golf game "World Golf Tour" ceased to work.

The makers of the game have already taken steps to move to a different platform on January 1st ... but the existing Flash version still works perfectly ... until YOU came along!

Your so-called "update" made it impossible to even load World Golf Tour's menu screen - I heard the music, but the graphics were frozen.

I'm no Sherlock - but this problem only occurred when Firefox updated.

It took me ages to downgrade back to v.82.3 - but WGT loaded perfectly when I did it.

Proving that it's YOUR fault! So don't give me this "most problems are caused by other peoples' software" stock answer crap.

I WILL upgrade to the latest version of Firefox on January 1st, not one second before.

Is there any way I can turn off the "Download Firefox Update Reminder" until then?

It's really annoying.

When I add a bookmark Firefox puts it in either "Other Bookmarks" or "Bookmarks Menu". Having to hunt in two places for new bookmarks is infuriating. How do I get the programmers to add an option in about:config to remove or disable "Other Bookmarks" so that new bookmarks are just added to "Bookmarks Menu" like they should in a normal world?

For years now Mozilla has been forcing users to add a userChrome file to get their tabs BELOW the address bar. They have also been changing the rules for doing it every so often so users have to go back and modify their userChrome.css files.

WHY doesn't the Mozilla development team wake up and make it easier for users to maintain the look and feel of their UI to match their preferences. It shouldn't require a special .css file to make this happen.

PLEASE add settings in the about:config (or better yet in the tools/options) to allow users to move the tabs below the address bar line.

ARE YOU LISTENING Mozilla??

I am continuing to have issues going to this web site. www.goldtonemusicgroup.com/goldtone. Works great on chrome but firefox fails miserably. The page needs to be downsized and when you click on a link it may open it but it may be behind it but I am never able to get to it. I think possibly the last update something must have messed up. I used to be able to load it but not anymore. I have to use another browser to work with this web site. Other web sites seem to be ok. Thanks for any info.

Hi,

Somehow while searching for this solution on the web. I got my answer in a foreign Firefox. The answers posted to this solution are in English but all the other buttons are according to Goggle translate are in Lithuanian. How can I see this whole page in English?

I was able to answer a couple of people but if I search in my USA profile, none my posted questions or answers include the ones from the Lithuanian Firefox.  Just curious if I could see them here somehow.

When I select Print from the cal menu, I get the window preview which is normal. When selecting PRINT, nothing comes up. It just sits there. It used to bring up a dialog box to select printer (pdf, etc) This happens on multiple Windows machines and has for months. I just tried adding an exception for the pop-up blocker, no effect. Thanks!

I have had this problem for many years, using many different versions of Firefox, using many different computers, and many different laser printers (both HP and Brother). I don't think it is a problem on my end. I am still mostly using Win 7. Currently using Firefox 83 on some of the computers, others, I'd have to look. The main problem I have is PayPal. When I sell something and want to print out the "packing slip" it tries to print a HUGE page on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet, thus I only get a corner (top left) of this huge page. Changing the printers scale does nothing but shrink the "corner of the page" and still print nothing else of the remainder of the page (like it doesn't exist). Changing the page from portrait to landscape does not help. Changing printers does not help. Changing ISP's and physical locations and computers does not help. I have no other problems with other prints form other websites. I have had to install and use Google Chrome in order to print out the packing slips. I would like to NOT have to use Chrome and have two web browsers on my desktop. Any ideas? Thanks.

For all intents and purposes, there are no 'nonprofit' companies. Their is a large grey are between the two such that the entire spectrum is in that grey area. Firefox has become a Big Business Behemoth. The surest way to tell if you're dealing with a Big Business Behemoth is 'Customer Service'. Big Business Behemoths don't supply REAL customer support, you have to get whatever support you can from their 'Community', their end-users.

The most recent update of firefox was released without thoroughly ridding itself of glitches: the end-users will report the glitched that were missed.

Since update 85.0.1 was inflicted upon my computer without my permission. It not only hangs at somepoint while I'm using it, the little 'end peocess' window doesn't work, I can't minimize firefox and do something else until it wakes up from its nightmare, I can't access Task Manager, my only option is to wait. I'm not very good at the waiting game. Other applications have started hanging as well. I have no choice in the matter, I have to be patient until the problem resolves itself.

I am allowed the option to reset firefox and lose my bookmarks, my history and probably my saved logins. That's not an option , it's surrender.

I am upgrading my PC from W7 Home Premium to W10 soon. I understand this will result in a complete reimage of the PC and all existing files will have to be restored. I currently use a Seagate external hard drive as a system backup. Can the W7 "backup" Firefox file on the Seagate be used to restore my existing bookmarks to the new W10 Firefox download? If so, how do I do this?
