Restoring history from a second device with Sync

Hello,

IT support wiped my browser history on Laptop A. I also have Laptop B, which hasn't been used in a couple of weeks, and which is connected to Laptop A through Sync. Ideally I'd like to import the history from Laptop B to Laptop A, as this would be an almost total restore.

Laptop A losing its history is the most recent activity though, and I'm worried that as soon as I open Firefox on Laptop B, Sync will overwrite B's history with the (now blank) history from A.

So, is it possible to get B's data onto A through Sync, without A wiping B? Can I generate a backup from B through other means without Sync overwriting it?

Many thanks,

Charlotte

I am using the new openSUSE 15.2 for quite some days now. But when I try to watch stream on youtube the video does not show up instead it says "Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available ". The same happens with some videos on youtube with same message. On twitch I get a error saying "This video is either unavailable or not supported in this browser". I tried to install the official Firefox 80.1 too but was stopped with the same result.

So recently I've noticed that I get lots of problems with firefox and one of them being that when I use letter "A" in my brower it acts as tabulation or simply direct me to search engine front page instead of letting me write the search.

Also I've noticed that on some sites when I'm interracting with input boxes or otherwise browsing I get some kind of dotted lines going criss cross on my browser which is really weird but so far have not caused any major issues. But regarless would be nice to not be there.

Any ideas what's wrong and what I can do to fix it?

I have my preferences to set to keep my logged and save cookies, but lately I have been getting logged out of websites I use regularly such as Reddit, GMail, Yahoo. History is set to clear when I close my browser because I don't need to be reminded that I searched for random words so I could spell them correctly.

This morning for example, I signed into Reddit because I had gotten signed out since last night. Did my reading. Closed my browser. Came back. Opened Reddit again and was signed out. It doesn't happen every time I close my browser. I may stay signed in for a few days with no issue or, like this morning, I don't stay signed in for very long. I even got a message that I wasn't signed in on tab I opened from another tab.

Is this a bug? Some undocumented feature?

It's not all bad though since it keeps me from constantly checking FB which I use 2FA for and hate going through.

Hi,

I have recently observed that my firefox tabs are crashing quite often. This defect is not happening on the start up. Starting firefox in safe mode didn't prevent them from crashing again.

The Report IDs for some of them are mentioned below: bp-64687ede-9f4e-4958-89bf-55a570200911 bp-5354e76b-9c08-4487-9d0a-a3ecc0200910 bp-259172db-a674-4e95-a042-b3f140200910

Could you please let me know what is the issue and how to fix it?

I need to make the Tabs and Bookmarks Toolbar taller, and increase font size and embolden the font in these for someone with very poor vision. I am using a 32" monitor with large font, and 150% on Display scaling, but still need these areas larger and with more prominent font for easy visibility.

The version of Firefox is 78, and all the options I have seen do not work on this version. Does the Mozilla organization not care about assistance for people who need extra assistance?

I am using FF56 and still not prepared to upgrade to post 56. Until recently I would see embedded videos and pictures in some forums, which now appear grey or the post seems to have a big gap to the end. If I click on the grey area, the picture will appear when I click on it.

I have contacted the sites and they blame FF stating, that no new algorithms are in use.

Does anyone know why this may have happened and how I can fix this?

Hi guys, When a user closes mutiple Chrome browser windows (with mutiple tabs in each window), Chrome will open them all the next time the user opens Chrome browser. Firefox however only opens the last closed browser window, "forgeting" all previous closed windows. Is there a way to make Firefox remember and open multiple windows?

Thank you very much!
