Both my computer and my tablet are logged into my Firefox account, the page at accounts.firefox.com lists both devices, yet for some reason they won't sync. I've synced two mobile devices before, and it worked fine. I've spent a good portion of today trying to figure it out, and have gone half mad from frustration. Please can you help me? Thank you!

(Firefox 102 on Windows.)

Indicating the progress of a runnig download in the taskbar is ok, but when the size of the download is unknown, there is a fast animation, that keeps going and going and going. That´s very annoying, when you want to keep focused on a difficult issue elsewhere on the screen. (Sadly I have these 'endless' and slow downloads quite often at work - e.g. github.)

How can this animation be disabled?

I would happily lose the normal download progress if only this fast animation disappears.

In about:config I did not find anything applicable when searching for 'download', 'animate', 'progress' or 'taskbar'.

After a Windows11 update re-boot, I had to sign-in on many things - Firefox was one of them. When I tried, I entered my name and password with no errors. But, then I was asked to verify that I was me by signing on to my YouTube app on my tablet.

Why?

I have no intention of keeping this "malware" but did download it to get access to Firefox.

Please change the secondary verification for something else.

Recently got a new computer with Windows 11, and now whenever I try to play a Youtube video or videos on other sites, Firefox as a whole slows down. There is a delay when starting the video, and at times Firefox stops responding if I try to switch to another tab when this is happening. (Not always, but sometimes).

The delay can be anywhere from 5 to 45 seconds or so, and repeats whenever I pause and unpause a video, or even rewind slightly. This doesn't seem to be buffering, and videos seem to work just fine on Edge. Any idea what could be causing this issue?

Hi

1st off thanks for creating a web that is open and free and all the amazing and great work you guys do!!!! I appreciate your work and organization.

My suggestion is I like to have firefox able to have my banking details readily available. Meaning I like to add my banking info from my 3 banks and paypal acc directly into Firefox. I am always paying for items through firefox web browser, and have to keep adding in my details to the website that I am buying from. e.g I will have to get my wallet and take out my card add the 16 digit number and the cvv & I got to make sure those number are correct. This is a lot of work to keep on doing every time I need to buy something its ridiculous!! It be cool to directly access my funds from my firefox browser and have direct access to my banking portal. I sure there will be a lot of issues with privacy, but I'm sure you guys can make this happen in some way.
