I am trying to setup custom startpages that I am creating using HTML5/CSS/JS. Issue is I am doing this in multiple devices that I have Firefox Sync on.

Those devices are Manjaro (Linux) and Windows 10. Thus their directories and such differ vastly.

I setting the homepage to be `/home/arszilla/.config/mozilla-firefox/HomePage/index.html` on Linux, whereas on Windows it is `C:\Users\Arslan\Documents\Mozilla Firefox\HomePage\index.html`. However due to the sync this gets overwritten constantly.

Is there a way for me to keep Linux's homepage intact while the same is done for Windows? So Linux has its own 'non-synced' homepage, while Windows has its own 'non-synced' homepage?

Thanks in advance.

Just updated Firefox to v. 65.0, it will no longer ask to where I want file save to. As it use to. Note that this is what I set it to do in preference for in Files and Applications section. The files are being saved to the other option "Save files to" even though I've selected always ask. Please note that I did do a launch of Firefox after confirming changes, and even a reboot of Mac OS.

Thanks

Hi,

i have been given task to change config for Mozilla ESR users in our company. I'm trying to change the value "security.enterprise_roots.enabled" which is disabled by default in update channel "esr". Is it safe to push (mass copy) new file "channel-prefs.js" with modified preference or there is another way?

pref("app.update.channel", "esr"); /* extra code */ pref("security.enterprise_roots.enabled", true);

One of my customers run an web application in Firefox and they want their users to just be able to use Firefox for that particular site. They run Firefox 42 today and we have managed to remove all the "bars" using the UserChrome.css folder. We have also applied some custom settings using the .cfg file. However, now they want to upgrade to Firefox 48 and I tried the same solution but it doesn´t work. For some reason UserChrome.css doesnt get copied to the profiles folder. If I manually copy it, it works.

In Firefox 42 the UserChrome.css is located here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\browser\defaults\profile\Chrome

Is there any changes done to the folder structure in Firefox 48? Do you have any suggestions how I can solve this?

The title is pretty much self explanatory. Whenever I reboot my computer (Ubuntu 16.04), firefox loses ALL of its data. Any persistent cookies are removed, any customizations I make to the title bar are removed, my extensions are gone, and I have to sign into sync again. It's like a completely fresh installation.

Thanks for your help!

I want Firefox to remember my history at websites so I don't have to keep entering my username and passwords. I go into the Menu, click on Options, then Privacy, then choose the option to have Firefox remember my history. After that it works fine. However, when I shut off my computer and then turn it on again later the settings that I chose (to remember history) haven't been saved and I have to go through that whole process of Options, Privacy, Remember My History all over again. How can I get Firefox to remember/save my settings so I don't have to do this each time I turn on my computer? Thanks for any help you can provide on this.
