Why does FF Sync move and unpin my Top sites?

From similar issues w/FF, I can only guess my problems w/losing settings is due to User.js file OR my use of Ublock Origin. Now I turn off Ublock once in a while as I've learned it may be causing FF to give me the "page not found/server" error page.

Seems to me by using Sync FF should be able to keep Tops sites where they should be and keep them pinned. Make no sense to me.

Anyhow, trying to read the How to fix preferences page but I gotta hang it up and get some sleep.


Thanks for any input. Hopefully the .js solution will work w/o hosing any Add-ons, etc.

Plain and simple it's impossible to get Firefox Quantum to increase font size or magnification size and *stay that way* either between restarts of Firefox or when another tab is openend. Addons and plugins don't work, instructions for how to hack it are all over the place. Me? I'm moving all my bookmarks over to Chrome which in spite of all the controversy makes it a breeze to increase font and/or magnification size and keep it that way.

In addition to Twitter/Facebook/Linked in, websites often have other click-through (?) links which are replaced with these NonIcons, which I cannot use, as their title/name/use is replaced also.

I have attached an image I created from 3 websites' NonIcons.

I do hope this has an easy fix.

My student calendar on https://myportal.unitec.ac.nz/ displays my classes 12 hours earlier than they are. I have checked and the timezone on my laptop is definitely set to the correct timezone. I did a search and discovered that this problem could be because I have privacy.resistFingerprinting set to true and therefore my browser is giving the timezone UTC. I checked this via the browser console. I am in New Zealand so my timezone is 12 hours ahead of UTC so hence the 12 hour difference.

I am mentioning this here as I didn't want to bother the folks on Bugzilla until I knew for sure that it was a bug. So I'm asking, is this the expected behaviour for users that have privacy.resistFingerprinting set to true? or is this a bug? I am pretty sure that this problem did not exist earlier in the week when I was running Firefox Developer Edition 69.0b3 (64-bit) (Mac OS); I am now running 69.0b4 and this is when the problem seems to have popped up. So I'm just asking if this is what I should expect if wanting to prevent browser fingerprinting?

The calendar is only viewable for users that are logged in, unfortunately.

I have a website (oakmontwx.eu5.net) and the front page shows up properly, but when I open the front page locally I get a network error. I am not using localhost on my computer, but I have a javascript routine which reads a text file every 10 seconds. The network error occurs when the page tries to read the file, and only half the webpage appears. On the website there is no problem.

This only started occurring today after Firefox did an auto update. I have refreshed FF and also reinstalled it but the problem persists. The page shows up properly in MS Edge and Safari.

I just signed up for Firefox Monitor. Most of the accounts it says were breached are ones I recognize, and I have changed my passwords. However, it also says there were data breaches affecting two sites I do not have an account with at all (Whitepages and Verifications.io). What do I do about those, since I haven't got an account (I don't even know what Verifications.io is), so I don't have a password to change.

Dear Firefox support,

I would like to share with you that your certdata.txt file is including 2 expired CA certificates: | Expiration date | Certificate CN | | 2019-07-06 | Class 2 Primary CA | | 2019-07-09 | Deutsche Telekom Root CA 2 |

New certificates should be retrieved for these 2 CA, or they should be deleted from the certdata.txt as they are no longer valid.

Hello, yesterday I tried to install an update on my computer that caused the computer to shut down. When the computer restarted my settings in firefox had changed (although I don't think Firefox updated or anything). My search engine options are now just Bing, Amazon, and Ebay. I know how to add more search engines. I went to the preferences page->search-> find more search engines. But when the list of available search engines comes up, google is missing. There's search google images, google translate, every other country's google you can imagine, but default US Google is not there. Where did it go? Why can't I find it?

While trying to view "Hurricane Barry Mission Day 4 - Vehicle Cam", "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Otx7ZJUDStw" on youtube I cannot see the video just the progress circle. The chat portion is viewable and actively updated. I am viewing this on a Mac running high sierra. I also have a linux workstation which has no problems displaying the feed and is on the same network.

Can anyone offer an explanation?

Hello, I have the following issue:

I was watching some videos on youtube when the sound and picture started to stutter. It's like speed was constantly changing from x1 to x0.05 and back again. (It's not speed related) I closed firefox, then instantly got new update and the issue was not solved. It happens on every video but at random time. (The problem might occur at the start or in the middle of the video). What I did so far:

1. Updated my Nvidia Driver: did not helped

2. Checked the video in other browsers: It worked just fine.

3. Changed my Headsets from wireless BT to standard headphones: It did not helped.

4. Looked for similar issues on forums, but provided solutions did nothing.

5. Opened OBS to record the footage. Then it got interesting. It solved the problem. Opened OBS has fixed that issue.

But I don't want to use Firefox with opened OBS so pls help. Thank you for your time :)
