Hi Friends, In the Edit Settings part of my user controls, I've unchecked all the "watch" options. But I still get an email every time there's a reply to any topic I've started.

How can I make this stop globally?

I know there's a place to click to stop the emails on each topic. But it would be nice if it could be done globally.

I'm not sure what the reasoning is, for this kind of arrangement. But it seems to me like it would work better if members had the option to opt IN to notifications, once in a while when they need it; rather than opt out almost all the time.

Hoping for a solution. Thanks for listening  :-)

I use a MacBook Pro with MacOS 10.11 and the latest version of FireFox (72.0.2) and I'm unable to figure out how to bring up the Context menu. With previous versions of FireFox. I could hold down the Control key and click a tab and that would bring up the Context menu. But with the latest versions of FireFox, that option is no longer available.

I suppose if I bought a two-button mouse, I could bring up the Context menu with the right button, but you should be able to bring up the Context menu with the trackpad that come with Apple's MacBook Pro.

So how do you bring up the Context menu on an Apple MacBook Pro?

Thank you so much.

I also need to save and keep the actual pages that are being downloaded by the browser (including the supporting css, javascript, images, ...)
How do you achieve that?

my windows7 taskbar: 11+ replicate FF windows w-multiple tabs each is normal use for me. restart FF puts them in new order L to R i can deal with that but would like to be able to restart with these icons staying in the 'same places' because i'm getting old and cranky and forget where i put things more often now.

they're all up there on the taskbar OK but in a different order each time i restart FF. i don't recall locating a Topic similar, or seeing a likely category from Options.

i'm not in a Rush, but have found FF help questions successfully answered in the past. thanks for helping.

I've always love the fact that I could move all the tool bars and addy bar to the bottom of the window. First this it was a menu item, no it's broken. Then an addon, now it's broken. Then it was the .css file, now it's broken with 66. How do I go about moving everything back to the bottom of the window? Why can't Mozilla relize that a lot of their users love the customizing of where the tools and how the layout is done and stop breaking it??? Why can't we have the old drag and drop customizing back?

Hello, I am a bit of a tinkerer and a tech junkie. However, I still find sync to be a very useful and handy tool, and have it applied to all of my devices (tablets, phone, multiple computers). Due to my never-ending quest to make things better, though, I am frequently changing OS'es and uninstalling apps/rearranging registries on many of these devices, so I often find myself needing to reinstall firefox (and thus re-sync).

The only problem here is that sync recognizes each new iteration as its own separate device, even though a vast majority of them cease to exist entirely and are gone forever. This makes my "Tabs From Other Devices" page a huge pain to access, as most of the device names are the same and a lot still have active pages in them.

How would I go about deleting these old accounts from my sync account? Changing my password does no good at all, as since the devices cannot access the server any longer they are still present in my database, and as such are still annoying. Any help is appreciated!

Two pictures of the problem is as follows. As you can see, there are many apparent duplicate devices: http://imageshack.com/a/img14/5290/a29b.png http://imageshack.com/a/img59/6697/6sp4.png
