I'm very sorry if it comes off as hostile. It's actually kind of out of fear that one day it will all break down.

As person on autistic spectrum I really need ability to maintain pleasant-to-eyes user layout. Even before the Quantum updates Firefox moved from pretty much perfect-looking browser to worse and worse (kinda Chrome-looking) one. That's why UserCss was a godsend.

http://prntscr.com/26cyw7p

But every few updates stuff breaks and I have to download yet another updated version of custom CSS, and often at least one option I am using actively is no longer available because firefox update broke it for good. Today was such day - after Firefox updated, suddenly tabs were way too high, extending into favorites tabs. After updating and reconfiguring (since config files are different with each iteration), four more customization options gone in between last and current CSS update.

I understand going forward and such, but if the visuals peaked in 2007, why not keep all the CSS working properly when doing so? Just do not remove old calls and such?

I begin to use firefox developer edition alongside firefox regular version. I've read some article that say if these 2 difference version using 2 seperate different profile, but it seems they're not. For example, when I change the theme to light for firefox and dark for firefox devedition, they always syncing each other so it use the theme the last set regardless where is set.

My question, is firefox and firefox devedition really using 2 seperate different profile? Can I use different setup like themes, addons for only one version? Where I can read the official documentation?

Very similar to posts in previous years that are archived and largely unanswered or not up-to-date.

I opened up my a Firefox session to find out I was logged out of sync and when I logged back in all my passwords where erased.

This has been stable for the last 10 months and Firefox has provided a reliable password archive with nice syncing features. However, this is a deal breaker, since I cannot loose the login credentials randomly.

No updates. No conscious logging out. No disregarding warnings etc.

Anyway to revert or retrieve?

I've lost the password to my Firefox account, which hasn't been a problem moving onto new mobile devices since I can just use the QR code generated by my PC browser to Sync. But now I have a new laptop and I've downloaded extensions/apps to read those same QR codes from the new laptop's webcam, but Firefox is still prompting me to put in a password. Is there a way around this or am I going to have to reset my password and lose all my encrypted data? Thanks for the help.

Hi!


Yesterday I installed Linux Mint. Before that, I was using Windows 10. Now, after signing in to my Firefox account on Linux, all my bookmarks and passwords are gone. Then I tried to log in again on Windows, but everything was gone. Is there a way to get back and recover all my passwords and bookmarks?

Hello, I have a desktop and a laptop. I want to sync my firefox data (tabs, history, etc) between them. Now the problem.

Only one device shows up under my account's "Connected Services". Each time I sync or change the profile name on the dekstop or on the laptop they overwrite each other.
i.e. I will have under "Connected Services" a single client with name "desktop", then i go to my laptop and enable sync with name "laptop" and now on my account there is only client "laptop". if I go to my desktop and change the name of the desktop sync client to "desktop2" and update, then i will only have "desktop2" under "Connected Services". How can i connect both my laptop and desktop to my account to sync data between them????

I suspect it could have something to do with me cloning my firefox installation from the laptop to teh desktop and they having the same "ID"? if that makes sense?. ( I cloned the entire C: drive of the laptop to a new drive and use that as a C: drive for the desktop)
