I used the same account with two computers. I always keep my account in sync. Actually, they do not. My previous notebook has a series of bookmarks, but the bookmarks in the latter one is exactly different. It seems like two accounts, but I log in with the same account. Miracly, when I log the same account with my phone, the bookmarks in my phone is sync with my previous notebook I don't know how to solve it and appreciate your answer.

我有两台笔记本,登录同一个账户时是不同步的。两个笔记本的书签页完全各顾各,但我登录的是一个账户且一直保持着同步。当我用手机登录同一个账户的时候,手机会有第一个笔记本同步;第二个笔记本就好像完全是新的账户。 我不知道怎么解决这个问题,希望专业的你的回复。

Thanks to Robert for a quick reply. The problem is that when using FIREFOX, images that are on my website do not appear. However, when using Chrome or any of the others (including my phone), they do appear.

I also think that Firefox is preventing some of the links I receive from connecting.

In short, I am not very happy with Firefox!

Cannot open PDF from MS365/Sharepoint site. Error message: "ERROR: URL provided is expired or invalid. Please reinitiate the workflow..." Checked:

  1. 1 Other file types open/download correctly.
  2. 2 Other browsers open PDFs correctly.

The issue seems restricted to Firefox and PDFs.

My banking website works fine except for 2 tabs which eventually comes back with page not found due to a technical problem. I think started happening with the last update to Firefox. I have no problems using MS Edge. I have contact my Bank's help line and only suggested clearing data cache and cookies, but it made no difference.

I believe the latest Firefox update has a glitch which prevents me from downloading audiobooks through the library's Overdrive app. After failing several times and talking to a very patient librarian, I finally used a different browser and was successful.

Cannot create drag&drop shortcut on SOME pages

Hallo,

I have: Firefox 102.0 (dark mode)

OS: - Win10, 64-bit (20H2 up to date)

addons: - Adblock Plus - uBlock Origing - Concent Blocker - Video DownloadHelper

In the last days I couldn't create shortcuts on SOME pages with drag and drop as I did usually. Today I formated the PC to start fresh, the problem remains!

examples: - https://flogarecords.com/store/shop/lp-mlp/sakis-tolis-among-the-fires-of-hell-lp-red-white-haze-exclusive/ When I try to create a shortcut with drag&drop a folder is created named: "SAKIS TOLIS - AMONG THE FIRES OF HELL LP (RED" And the shortcut is included inside.

- https://www.pronews.gr/amyna-asfaleia/politiki-prostasia/kolasi-sto-porto-germeno-ekkenonetai-o-mytikas/ When I try to create a shortcut with drag&drop a white file is created named: "Κόλαση στο Πόρτο Γερμενό" With size "0 byte", without extention.

The above are happening in SOME pages, not in all shortcuts. When I try to create the shortcuts on Opera they are created just fine. Perhaps that has to do with a bug in some update (windows or firfox)

Running Firefox 102.0 in Win 10. When I try to download a PDF file, I get (1) a dialog box saying the download failed, (2) two 0 byte files in the download directory with the name of the PDF file I'm trying to download, and sometimes (3) a PDF file with a filename of 8 random characters that appears to be the file I'm trying to download. How do I fix this?

My list of bookmarks that used to automatically display down the left side of my screen are now relegated to a heading in the bookmarks toolbar at the top of the page. This is completely useless to me. What happened to the display down the left side, and how can I stop this from NEVER changing in the future? I've had this happen before, and every time it does it takes me half a day to find the hidden solution to the problem.

accessibility keyboard shortcut to open "hamburger"(3 lines) Menu?

Hi, good day/evening you all. Hey with a temporary disability I have a real need to limit my mousing and would love to see a feature request I could give a thumbs up on -- for the 3 line menu at the top right being accessible via keyboard. (Also at least some of the choices on it such as History via a hotkey -- after I have the main menu open. By the way I know about pressing Alt, then any of the hotkeys on the old school hidden menu bar -- I'm instead talking about the new always visible hamburger menu icon.)

Where would I search to see if there's been any discussion or progress on that? Bugzilla?

Sorry I'm new to this type of questioning. Any tips would be greatly appreciated and my body would appreciate it too! :-)

Screen 1 message: firefox.exe Entry point not found. Files(x86)Mozilla.firefox\xul.dll. Screen 2 message: couldn't load XPCOM. After repeated tries to get to firefox I deleted the icon and re-installeed a new copy of firefox.

As my computer skills are not great my question is can any of the old data/bookmarks be retrieved? And if so

how in very simple terms/pictures.

All logins/passwords missing

Problem/possibly relevant info:

  • yesterday evening, auto-fill for logins/passwords was working
  • when I opened my laptop (from standby) this morning, my welcome screen was frozen at last night's day/time when I lowered the lid so I restarted (press and hold power button; this happens all the time as of the past 6 months or so)
  • logins/passwords have now disappeared
  • Windows 10, Firefox v.102.0 (updated July 1st)

After 2 hours of trying to find answers, I've done/discovered the following:

  • followed steps here: https://lifehacker.com/how-to-recover-your-missing-firefox-passwords-1835616191 -- didn't work
  • I don't have other profiles and am not synced to another device
  • I've had no luck finding an "Old Firefox" folder
  • logins.json, logins.json-2.corrupt, and logins-backup.json all have the same timestamp (this morning) and file size
  • when I open logins.json and logins-back-up.json in Firefox, I get the following message: SyntaxError: JSON.parse: unexpected character at line 1 column 1 of the JSON data (I suspect this is where I'm in big trouble...)

I am very non-techy so any straightforward suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise, I guess I'll have to decide if I want to pay to get it fixed or go to the hassle of re-setting all my passwords. ;)

Thanks!
