I love Firefox (FF), I use it on my home PC, work laptop, and my smartphone. I use a FF account for synchronization which is quite handy. But why, WHY every time I log into my account I'm getting an email: "Last reminder to sync devices! bla bla bla" Can not FF learn that my account uses sync? I don't have more devices for extra synchronization :) Is that really hard?

Non-native scrollbar setting not working in Firefox 90

I'm using Firefox 90 on Linux (Fedora 33) and MATE Desktop. Before I upgraded to Firefox 90, I set widget.non-native-theme.enabled to false to revert the scrollbar appearance to the system theme, as per this question: Scrollbar appearance changed after Firefox upgrade. It worked on Firefox 89, but as soon as I upgraded to Firefox 90, the scrollbars went back to the non-native appearance.

After the upgrade, the widget.non-native-theme.enabled is still set to false, but apparently ignored. However, I noticed that the other widget.non-native-theme.gtk.scrollbar.* settings that allow scrollbar appearance customization inside Firefox are ignored as well. If I set widget.non-native-theme.enabled back to true, then the other scrollbar settings work as expected. This tells me that widget.non-native-theme.enabled does work, but the system scrollbar theme is not picked up as expected. This looks like a bug to me.

When hit shift and click somewhere in the webpage or type something, the "Page Inpector" keep poping out (see attached screenshot), this is so annoying that I basically cannot type any capital letters. I have tried the option "Refresh Firefox", the browser seems to be set to default mode, but the issue still exsist. Tried for a new keyboard, the same. I searched the forum, but unfortunately cannot find a proper solution. Hope anyone can help me with this, otherwise I have to consider to change my default browser (which I really don't want to because of such a simple but annoying problem).

Thanks a lot for anyone could provide any suggestions !

I updated FF to version 90.0.2, & it now keeps asking me for my primary password. I've tried resetting it, & rebooting Windows 10 Pro X64, but nothing seems to help. I don't actually have to do anything, except hit Cancel, but it bothers me that FF is glitchy.

No software additions, system is stable, running Sophos anti-virus

Any ideas? Thanks!

Hi.

I'm a long time firefox user. The past few years, I have not been able to copy text from print preview. This is important to me, as I run a small business and need to copy order numbers from the print preview screen to keep my work flow going. I can do this in chrome, but cannot in firefox.

It is nothing I can copy from a website, as it is a link I click to open the invoice.

The only work around that I know of would be to print the pdf to a file, open the file, and copy it from there - but this is not acceptable because it is too time consuming.

If anyone has something that will work, it would be much appreciated.

I started Firefox yesterday and saw a message about not having been on for some time - which rang alarm bells for a daily user! Having time today to investigate, it seems that it's lost 6 months of history and bookmark changes (I'm only offered January or today!) Is there a way of recovering all that history (very helpful) and this Tuesday's bookmark set? Thanks Stephen

I will give this one more try and then I will delete this program.

I want to save some specific login information. I get it to work right and then a week or so later it erases all of the information.

Reset it so often is worse than it not saving.

Why does it delete the information when I don't want it to.

System volume raised to 100% everytime firefox browser is focused no matter if there is a page opened in Windows 10

Hi! When I adjust a volume (Ej. 30%) elsewhere, when change the focus to Firefox browser, the volume automatically raised to 100% no matter if the page or pages are in blank or with content. And when I change to other application, the volume is back to original state (in this case 30%). Yes, it changes system volume, not the app volume. Searched all over internet and couldn't find solution.

Tried: - Deactivate all sound enhancement. - Deactivate sound lowering in call. - Change sound card (realtek to Nvidia) - Change output (back panel, front panel) - Updated drivers - Unplugged periphericals - Deactivate Control media via keyboard, headset, or virtual interface - Changed media.default_volume in about:config Nothing works

This only happen with Firefox and Chrome browsers. Microsoft edge, games and other multimedia apps has not problem.

I am using AMD Ryzen 5600X Asus TUF b550m 16GB RAM

Firefox 90.0.2 Windows 10, Version 20H2, Build 19042.1110

Hope we could find a solution. This is very annoying when using a headset. Regards

I closed Firefox to install the new update, and didn't realize I had 2 Firefox windows open. I need to restore my previous session of open tabs, and when I tried to restore, it restored the second window. Is it possible to find my other previous session? I'm sure I've done it before, but have worked for a while, and have not been able to. Thank you Cindy Holt

I have had a primary/master password set in Firefox for years. It only prompted me to enter it once per session. Since version 90, it now pops up at least once a day at random times to ask for the password again. This has happened on 3 different devices where Firefox is installed.

How can I stop it doing that or at least extend the time to a week? I know there are hidden config options for these, but they look to be on the default values, so have never changed.

Hello Unfortunately, the Pinterest browser button in Firefox does not work since a few days, - instead the Pinterest message window appears in the upper right corner of the screen saying „you are not logged in", plus a red login button (see screenshot added) On the Pinterest page, however, I then see every time that I am very well logged in. Tried several things, but no lasting success: - clicking on the red login link provided by the browser button message. Then a login window appears, but before I can enter name and password, it disappears again and I end up (already logged in) on my Pinterest home feed page. I still can't get the pin saved, though. This can't be because I'm logged in at Google at the same time (- I also logged out of Google and tried again, same result). - I logged out on the Pinterest page and then tried again via the window popping up in Firefox when I click the Pinterest-browser-button. Doesn't make any difference. - restarted Firefox, - doesn't help either. - logged out on Pinterest, deleted the Pinterest addon in Firefox and reinstalled it. Then logged in on Pinterest via the button window that popped up again in Firefox (saying "You are not logged in") when I try to pin something. That looked like it works and the pin got saved. However, the next time Firefox is opened or the next try touse the button, it's back to "You are not logged in" again (- and all the rest described above). Looks for me like coming with the last Firefox update two days before.... So what to do now? please fix that, it's very frustrating! best, Gundula from Germany
