I use the read aloud function of Firefox regularly and it keeps skipping important parts of the texts! Attached is a screencap of the article I was reading today, the most recent example of this (https://www.analystnews.org/posts/to-understand-the-israel-palestine-conflict-start-with-these-two-simple-questions). I have highlighted the sentence the reader skipped. Do I have a setting not marked properly? What can be done to fix this?

Hi everyone,

My computer crashed while updating from Windows 10 to Windows 11. Unfortunately, I had someone look at it and he formatted my hard drive and only did a partial backup of files. I thought my Mozilla Firefox account was syncing, but it seems like it did not happen in a while. Does anyone know if there's any hope in recovering the lost tabs and bookmarks? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,

Kenan

I am using the latest version of Firefox on Linux Mint. I've had some flash on opening issues that I've been unable to permanently prevent. Suddenly my adblock software is not working. I tried uninstalling, reinstalling, different adblocks-no improvement. No extension software is showing on my toolbar and selecting the extensions software just brings up a suggested extensions.

I just had to clean install Firefox after having problems. I've pretty much set it up how I want it, except when I quit Firefox and then re-open it all the tabs come back. Which I don't want. The box in the settings page for opening with previous session is unchecked. What else am I missing? I re-started my computer just in case that was an issue but the problem continues. Thanks

i had to rebuild my laptop computer and set up firefox on it, set up/turned on sync and the browser does NOT match the broswer srttings on the desktop where the sync comes from. bookmarked weblink icons only show up when a new tab is opened and vanish once a website is opened, icons for bookmarked weblinks on the bookmarks bar are generic wireframe globe-like-icons only, the custom firefox colour setup i struggled to create over the course of several weeks does not appear at all, nor does the dark theme. how then do i get this to -really- syc???

I can't download anything anymore. I get the "failed" message. I see in support questons that this has been going on for a long time even though there have been repeated "fixes" reported. I've used Firefox for a long time and really prefer it, but I'm having to change to Chrome to be able to complete my work.

Later version refuses to connect to my modem, and goes into security web mode. This modem uses HTTP/HTTPS for access, i.e., connects directly it's IP address, then the user enters a username and password. At that point, the the modem switches to HTTPS for control.

With this recent update, there is NO WAY to access the modem for any work, or upgrade the HTTPS certificate on the modem. This is a BUG.

What should happen is that if the web site will accept a HTTP connection, Firefox should NOT refuse connection or test for security issues UNTIL the user or the device switches to HTTPS.

As an aside, I've used Firefox on this Zywall modem for years until recently.

I use a MacBook Pro. I recently created a new profile for Firefox (for work purposes) and set it as the default profile, because I'm trying to get off Chrome entirely. The preexisting no-longer-default profile contained all my "personal" data - bookmarks, extensions, etc. Continued using both profiles for about a week with no issues. Last night my MacBook updated and when I reopened Firefox, the new default profile was fine, but when I went into about:profiles and launched the secondary profile in a new browser, it was completely empty - no history, no bookmarks, no extensions, nothing. That's at least a year's worth of data completely gone. I've looked through support articles and past folks' questions and am just completely lost as to how to restore it or what went wrong. If it's not possible to restore that data, how can I at least prevent this from happening again? I've very much lost trust in Firefox profiles because of this. Help please?
