Serif fonts help with readability, and are therefore preferable in the body of a book. The “serif” is the decorative stroke that finishes each end of a letter (think Times Roman). Serif fonts are easier on the reader’s eye than sans-serif fonts; the stroke leads the reader’s eye from one letter to the next.

Firefox is hanging on to an ancient dead email address, which it uses automatically when replying in on line forms where I don't have the option of filling one in (form won't send because account is dead), or trying to get into dropbox, etc. (identifies me as not having access under the old email address because access was set up for my current email address).

 I have looked here but don't find the places to go as described at all:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-primary-email-address-firefox-accounts.

Where do I find Firefox's stored email address that it uses for functions as described above?

FYI, I use Thunderbird for email, but not Firefox. I have my proper email address identified as primary in Thunderbird, and the dead address and all emails completely deleted as far as I can find them. Am on Win 7; Firefox 105.0.1 at present, but this has been a problem for a long time. Thank you. Dave

Some of the Extensions are not Syncing. I have the same version of the Browser on both devices. The Extensions are updated on both devices. I have logged out and in. I have disabled and enabled back the syncing of extensions. I have disabled and enabled back the syncing of each individual extension. I have hit mannual sync multiple times. Both Machines are updated, and have been restarted.

I have no idea what is going on for it not to sync, when I go to install the extension on the PC that is missing, it recognizes that is installed.

I have no more ideas

version 105.1, Win 10

I can't find the Firefox Updates section under GENERAL, and I am the only user/owner/admin.

This is the first time I came across this problem, and I've been using Firefox for years.

Can you help solve this?

Almost forgot: First it would not load the bookmarks toolbar, then It failed to show on the screen, even though the Task manager showed it running multiple times -after every attempt I tried.

Went uninstalling and reinstalling, and now it works when I downloaded from Microsoft, and did a REFRESH, losing my data -this function sucks big time, you don't warn clearly enough what'd happen, and reconstruction is a pain, specially as you explain in technical lingo without translation.

Any help is welcomed.

Best regards,

Oscar

I want to remove the "Open All in Tabs" bookmark from my bookmarks folders, it's annoying and unnecessary (mouse scroll button is enough). Right clicking it opens the same menu as right clicking any folder, but in this case, the only option I want ("Delete Folder") is unavailable. I searched for a solution online, but the only thing I saw was something about editing codes and stuff, but I'd rather not mess with them. I couldn't find anything about it in the settings either, and there were no plugins, add-ons or extensions to fix this problem. If there's no way at all around it without having to mess with code, please do tell when I can expect to see an update that will bring a way to turn it off.

Recently, files that I download from online have been going into Microsoft's very convenient little folder called, "Downloads."  ::: rolls eyes :::

At first, I chalked this up to being distracted and having not chosen the location to where I wanted something downloaded - I have always preferred downloading to a specific location of my choosing. However today, when I went to download a receipt, and thinking about where the best place was to put it, progress for the download was immediately displayed - I was never presented with a window allowing me to navigate to a location.

When it happened the second time, and finding another file I had downloaded a week ago in the "Downloads" folder, I went into settings. I discovered that under DOWNLOADS, in the box, "Save files to:" it has "Downloads." But below that, I have a checkmark beside, "Always ask you where to save files," as I have always done.

I cannot remove "Downloads" from the box. If I clik the "Browse" button next to that box, my only option would be to pick another location, which of course, will simply become another *permanent* download location.

Shouldn't my checkmark by "Always ask" over-ride what's in the "Save files to" box?

How do I fix this?

I have a tracking app on macOS Monterey that is following me around

On Firefox settings I came cross some locations where I see Google Chrome like on page info about:home or Application Basics: Google Location Service Key and Google Safe browning Key. Also, on a link called Survey where there is Google forms to fill out. I don't use Google Chrome because of the issues Google Chrome creates when I go on my the websites. Why are these Google things in Firefox and is there a way to remove them?

using thin clients to RDP to a server running Firefox (Windows) The thin client sessions need to update a file (document, PDF, spreadsheet, etc.) Need to be able to open a document (not download it), modify it and save it back to the server. Have tried under Applications changing what application is used to open it and also used Always Ask. Firefox still downloads the document and, therefore any changes are made to the copy the thin client's Downloads folder instead of the original on the server. We have multiple thin clients at the locations in question and users accessing the documents on the shared server need to see the most recent version. Currently I can make changes to a document and save it, go back to the server and open the same file and the changes I just made are not there. They are on the copy in my downloads file. Short version. I need to be able to use thin clients (running Windows) that are connecting to a server (Running Windows) to be able to open say a PDF file without it being copied to the Downloads folder on the thin client. Edit the file (if needed) and when that modified file is saved, the changes go the the original file on the server and not the copy in the thin client's downloads folder. Using the same hardware and IE there is no problem with downloads happening and so any updates made are on the server file.

Hi! A vendor of a solution we use suggested unchecking the "Cookies" and "Tracking content" under "Privacy & Security" settings in the "Custom" section to help with an issue encountered using their services. Those settings look like global settings that would affect all the websites visited, not just the vendors'. Is that correct? What are the implications here? Would this mean giving up Firefox protections?
