I have 3 synced devices. Included in my sync options is History. Not all history seems to sync, and deleting history on one device doesn't delete it on the others. Can anyone tell me how to truly sync and delete all history across all synced devices? If this feature isn't already available, I ask that Firefox developers please make it available. Thanks!

I can't figure out how to make the vertical scrollbar actually usable. Firefox works fine on my PC but I also have a new Mac and on that machine the scrollbar is totally unusable on all sites, even with a stylus. I saw a couple posts about creating some custom code for this but I'm not a developer. This can't be only my problem? How do I just make it wider?

I'm posting this again because I really need help! Also because I'm afraid I messed something up by replying to my own question. But I kept getting the "A copy of Firefox is already open" error, so I deleted one of the two profiles that I found. Apparently I chose the wrong one, and now all of my bookmarks are gone. I DID click something that said NOT to remove all my information (bookmarks, etc) so there must be a way to get it back, but how? I really only care about the bookmarks. Also want to mention that I'm on Mac, not Windows. I tried something called Recuva but I can't run .exe files on my Mac.

Hi, I'm having an issue with Firefox developer tools response in the network tab. When I look at the response it's all garbage but when I look at it in Chrome or Charles proxy it looks fine.

To replicate: 1. Go to https://www.realestate.com.au/new-homes/ 2. Open up developer tools, switch to network tab and filter by .mst 2. On the webpage click `Explorer` sub menu item 3. Inspect the response of the .mst requests and it's garbage like: PHN0eWxlIHR5cGU9InRleHQvY3NzIj4uc3RhbmRhcmRfX3N0YW5kYXJkLWNvbnRhaW5lcl9fXzFGVFJ3e21heC13aW

Attached is a sample of how web pages display. These can either initially display this way or, as in this example, the page opened correctly, I stepped away for a few minutes and when I viewed the page again it looked like the example. I can have a page open and it is displaying correctly, then open a new tab and go to a different site and the text will look like the example.

I have cleared the cache, dumped all the cookies. Restarting the browser (I do this many times a day) will fix the current page but eventually another page will display like this.

I running version 84.0.2 64bit on a Mac Pro Mojave. I don't have this problem with other browsers like Chrome or Safari. I never see it on my Windows 10 system.

I use an iMac with 3 displays as follows:

[1080p] - [1080p MAIN] - [2048x11152 Retina]

I use all 3 displays for browser windows but primarily the centre one.

When I drag a Firefox tab from the 1080p screens to the Retina screen, the UI is way too small to work with. All other applications seem to scale the UI properly though.

I'm attaching screenshots of: 1. the same website in Chrome vs Firefox on the 1080p display (both have suitable UI sizes) 2. the same website in Chrome vs Firefox on the Retina display (Firefox's UI is too small)

Is there any way to resolve this short of increasing the Firefox UI scale globally (which would take too much space on the 1080p screens)?

I'm using: MacOS 11.2.3 Firefox 88.0

thanks! Dean

Hey, I want to make the UI slightly larger; I have found that modifying layout.css.devPixelsPerPx in about:config works the way I need it to. However, when using multiple screens with different resolutions, the scaling no longer appears consistent between those screens. That would make sense (since it's a per-pixel configuration), but I couldn't any configuration option that only acts as a modifier for the standard scaling mechanism. I'm using macOS (10.15.7), Firefox 88.0. Attaching a screenshot taken from both screens together (not sure how macOS handles the difference in resolution when handling screenshots, there's definitely some magic going on with macOS screenshots in general; either way, it shows the problem really well).
