Hello

I’ll make this as brief as possible, so here goes. When I was working I had Firefox on my computer, my iPhone and my iPad and all three were synced together. Now that I no longer work I don’t have access to the computer any longer. Only my iPhone and iPad. Up until a few weeks ago that was fine. Both of them were still synced. Then, for reasons completely unknown, the one on the iPad became problematic. So, without giving it much thought I, installed a brand new one on the iPad. It told me to set up a login for that one which, I did , again without giving it much thought. Then, when I hit sync, nothing. And I believe that’s where the problem lies. I sat down with the iPad on one side and the iPhone on the other and went through every setting I could find. The only difference I could see was with the account names. The one on the iPhone is “overworked” which I believe was originally on all three. But when I set up the new one on the iPad, once again not giving it enough thought, I used my email address which is “gregcocks193@gmail.com.” So my belief is that the difference in the account names is why one can’t find the other. But, what to do? I don’t want to just experiment because if I do it wrong I could potentially lose the ones on the iPhone, which is the only one left that has all my bookmarks and logins, and if I lose them, they are gone forever. So I’m hoping you can tell me what to do. If I need to change one of the account names, which one? How do I do it. Or is there another way to sync them together, without changing either of the names. I really don’t know. But since I only have one shot at getting it right I’m not going to do anything until I hear back from you. I have always used Firefox and nothing else, going all the way back to ver. 17 on the computer, and I don’t want to change. So now that you know my dilemma, I hope you can help. People ask me why I don’t use Google because it’s the #1 browser, and my answer is always the same. Just because their name is plastered everywhere doesn’t make their browser better. In fact, I think their mobile browser is horrible. So please give me some advice on what to do so I can continue using Firefox.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and I look forward to getting your help.

Take care Greg

I've been experiencing weird downloads whenever I startup firefox. My antivirus prevents the download, and says that firefox.exe is the application responsible. I will include an image of the antivirus(Kaspersky) report. Deleting and reinstalling firefox seemed to fix the problem, but it returned after sometime; even when I just used youtube on firefox(I've tried this atleast 3 different times now). I am not sure if this is caused by one of my extensions, or if there is something else I've done to cause this. I'd just like to know if there is a way to fix it?

Disable the built-in PDF viewer and use another viewer

You can also set a different third-party PDF viewer to handle PDF files, instead of Firefox’s built-in PDF viewer. To switch from using the built-in PDF viewer to another viewer: 1. Click the menu button and select . 2. In the panel, go down to the Applications section. (SO WHERE IN THE HELL IS THIS SECTION???) YOU CAN'T DO I never selected Mozilla to open any pdf and there's no where to opt out or change based on what all the troubleshooting tips say... All these tips must be located on a much older version of Firefox cause they ain't in my version OR they are hid under some dubious section... Pretty frustrating....when you want to use Adobe and can't cause I'm locked in under Firefox....don't know how that has happened unless it was done automatically under one of the many current upgrades that have been coming down over the last month.

Since the last Firefox update, my logins are no longer saved from one session to the next...and neither are my devices, even when I specifically give the site permission to save the current device. I have to log in to most sites (email, bill pay, etc.) every single time, and in most cases the site insists on sending me a text or an email to verify it's me. This is entirely new behavior since the last update, and I can't figure out how to get around it. Suggestions??

I'm using Firefox on a Mac with the built-in screen reader Voice Over. When I need to log in to a web page, with a User Name & password stored in Apple's Key Chain utility, I typically press Command-Shift-A & the User name & Password fields are automatically populated. Unfortunately, with my new installation of Firefox, I've found that the key combination in question is used to launch the "Add Ons" window. Is there a work-around for this? The Command-Shift-A is the only way that a blind user can populate those fields from Key Chain. The buttons, usually visible in or around those fields for a sighted user are inaccessible.

Thanks so much,

CJ

I've been using an Ironclaw rgb for over a year now but recently switched to an old backup hp mouse since I forgot to charge the ironclaw. Ever since then my cursor would only work in firefox, even though I could still alt tab to other apps, when I tried to click them it just clicked whatever was behind it on firefox. I already switched back to my main mouse and it's only gotten worse, as now it gets stuck whenever i plug in/out the mouse, even after restarting. I've had to restart multiple times since that fixes it for a short while but then it gets stuck again.

Hi.

This is quite similar problem to mine: https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/szmlim/firefox_sync_is_empty_blank_after_fresh_windows/

Long story short: my computer crashed. I'm using Linux, and some lib package files got wiped along the way. Anyways, I checked I have nothing important locally and installed a fresh system, because I have everything in the cloud and don't care about my local files.

In my new Garuda Linux I opened Firefox, tried to log in. It asked me to confirm by email. I confirmed the code. It said it's wrong. I tried again. It said it was wrong again. Okay, I returned the password and got a new one. It synced... and I have no bookmarks, no settings, nothing. What the hell, how do I get them back?

This is the first time I get this issue. In the past the same situation with reinstall happened to me, too. All data was always safe in the sync. I really need all my bookmarks back, please help.

I could not find any useful info in the sync settings.
