Following direction on Help Page - Trying to sync tabs, bookmarks etc from one laptop to another. In settings, devices are said to be logged in and sync set to sync pretty much everything. Clicking the menu top right - only shows my email @ the top, then New Tab etc - but nothing about "Sync Now" or "Sign In" What am I missing? TIA, Jean

Hi, my Firefox on Win10 doesn't work, I've been forced to go back to Chrome. After a crash in Win10, Firefox doesn't work anymore: it opens, be it launched by me or by other programs, but it just sits there, blank, doing nothing. It is impossible to interact with menus and everything. Task Manager shows two open instances of the browser, using RAM, but the browser doesn't do anything. It doesn't "crash" and it doesn't freeze, it just stays like that. If I quit it and try opening it again the PC tells me it's open already, and Task Manager shows a couple instances staying there after quitting it, as if it stayed stuck. I tried resetting it from the Apps settings of Windows, but nothing happened, I tried uninstalling it and then installing it again, but nothing happened. Restarting the PC a couple of times changed nothing. In the end, I had to go back to Chrome and even put it as default browser because all programs were calling up Firefox which stayed unresponsive. Anybody knows what I should do in a case like this?

I know there's [[an article|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/sync-custom-preferences#w_sync-custom-preferences]] on how to sync custom preferences. I wanted to sync my toolbar customizations and some other preferences like disabling disk caching. And I don't even have other firefox instances, instead I just want to sync only on one device, so that I can continue the same setup when I signin later on the same device.

I've tried to add services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.uiCustomization.state, "services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.cache.disk.enable" and set it to true. But it doesn't work. What am I missing? No one seems to address this. May I am missing something.

Getting error SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN on all my sites that are signed with a SSL Cert from my internal CA since updating past version 99

This appears to be a bug starting after Firefox version 99 on Windows because after i upgraded to Firefox version 100 i started getting this on all my SSL Certs from my CA and they worked fine prior to the update. Can anyone confirm if something changed after version 100 that is causing this?

Thank you.

Is there a way to always show the tab close button on the tabs? Or perhaps to show the button on hover of the tab? Chrome does this and I find that very helpful, in cases where I want to close a tab and do not want to re-open that page.

Some context: When you have many tabs open (I know, who does that?) and you want to close some of them, but do not want to select those tabs, currently you can right-click and scroll through the menu to the `Close Tab` option. This is slow and a bit clunky. The `Close Tab` menu option is buried in the bottom-middle of the list.

This issue is somewhat complicated by the fact that I use the excellent Auto-Tab Discard extension to discard/sleep tabs. (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/auto-tab-discard/) So when a tab is discarded, and you click on it, the tab reloads. Which is silly when you just want to close it.

Anyone aware of a way to always show the close-tab button, or show on hover?

Thanks!

For a class I'm taking I turned off the ad blocker. When I reset the privacy/security settings I may have also cleared the browser and or settings. Now I'm not receiving the subscriptions I've signed up for.

I've added the email addresses to my yahoo contacts and changed my passwords and I am still not receiving the subscription emails. Is the setting I need to change in Yahoo or Firefox? It's driving me nuts and no matter what I do (change login, settings on the sites) I am still not getting emails from my subscriptions.

Hi there

I've had firefox for years and never had much issues. I've never had this issue before the most recent update where now youtube videos constantly stutter. It's just Firefox as other browsers work fine. I've updated my graphics card and did a little bit of research but none of the fixes quite did it for me. In the past couple days I've always had Firefox crash on me twice, which hasn't happened before either. So I'm not sure what's going on, but I'm prone to point fingers at an update. I don't install extensions or themes, so the only extension I have really is uBlock Origin but that's been there forever. I've restarted my computer as well. It is not my resources, they are more than fine my RAM and CPU and Graphics Card. Task manager shows nothing is even above 50% (CPU, GPU, Memory) when playing the video. I've also tried creating a new profile and opening up a new profile. Same issue.

Can anyone suggest any fixes or is this a firefox update bug?

EDIT: This appears to be for all videos I am playing on Firefox. It also does not matter if I set it to the lowest quality, even 144p, it will still stutter nonstop.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I'm running 101.0.1 and spell check no longer works on any mail app like Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, BT Mail. If I use Chrome or Edge then spell check works correctly. This is despite my Firefox Settings being as below.....

Language Choose the languages used to display menus, messages, and notifications from Firefox. ENGLISH GB Set Alternatives… ENGLISH GB Choose your preferred language for displaying pages. Choose… ENGLISH (United Kingdom) (en-gb) Check your spelling as you type = Tick (Yes)

Could you please advise a fix?

Kind regards,

Neil.

P.S. If I use Chrome or Edge then spell check works correctly.

This question has to do with logging into web sites with an email and a password. Firefox 101.0.1 (64-bit). Windows 10.

On many sites, when I click in the email field, a drop down list of email addresses appears from which I can make a selection using the mouse or up/down arrow keys. Some web sites have as few as two email addresses in the drop down list, others have many more. I recall that one site has about fifteen email addresses in the drop down list.

How can I remove a non-applicable email address from the drop down list?

How can I clear the drop down list of all email addresses?

Thanks.

A few days ago Firefox started opening in a small window in the upper left corner of the screen. This problem was earlier also posted by other users. So I have read all these topics and suggested solutions.

This is what I have tried: - removing xulstore.json - compatebility tab in properties - manipulating overlapping squares icon and dragging window to almost full screen - Reinstalling Firfox ( without removing Firefox completely on forehand)

So far nothing resolves this problem.

Please advise

I have a user whose Firefox has stopped working. It will start up, but nothing ever is displayed in the window. The address bar and buttons are all there, but nothing from a web site, just a white page. If I enter a url, or click on a bookmark the refresh button never changed to an 'X', but I can see traffic from her machine going across our firewall. Try to go into setup and it's the same thing. About:config displays nothing. It's all just a blank page. Other browsers seem to work fine.

I've tried refreshing, and I've uninstalled and reinstalled, but it didn't fix it. Any ideas?

Thanks.

On my Windows 10 desktop, I have used www.bostonglobe.com for years with no problem. Firefox keeps me logged in and if, for any reason, am not, I click on the login link and Firefox fills in my login. Lately this does not work. I just updated Firefox and it still does not work. Bostonglobe.com loads but when I click on the login link all I get is a blank page. This works in Chrome and in Firefox on my Samsung tablet. I deleted all the bostonglobe cookies but this does not help. I have rebooted the computer and this does not help either. Any solutions would be greatly appreciated.

I have tried numerous times to copy over the contents of my Firefox default profile folder from a Windows 10 PC to a new Windows 11 PC. I followed all the instructions as far as I know (when either saving or pasting the folder contents, Firefox is off; successfully downloaded and installed Firefox on new PC creating a new default profile which is where I pasted the contents from previous PC's profile, etc.) When Firefox is restarted on the new PC, it is just the same as the new installation -- no bookmarks from the old profile show up, e.g.).

Any ideas for how to get this to work are greatly appreciated. I have a lot of bookmarks and need to be able to access them on new PC. (BTW, this approach worked just fine when I installed a new disk drive on the old PC about 5 years ago and brought all the Firefox profile data over - everything came over as expected. I wouldn't think the fact that this is a Windows 10 to Windows 11 porting has anything to do with it not working -- these are just profile folders.)

Would Synching the two PCs work better? Does Synch just add all the profile and password data on the two PCs together so that each ends up with the total of what was on the two individual PCs and nothing on either is lost? When I looked at Synch on new PC, it was not clear how to get it to point to the old PC - Add a New Device just seemed to point to a phone. Again, any help is much appreciated.

Many of the websites I access ask if I want them to remember my login info--username and password. For those that I trust, I indicate that I want them to remember this information, and for most I get an e-mail confirming that my device is registered. However, the next time I log in, I still have to go through the entire login. Is this a Firefox issue, and if so, how can I correct this?
