Hi,

I have been using Firefox sync for many years now. I just got a new computer and when I tried to connect with my account, I received a message saying Firefox has locked my account.

Would you please fix this asap? I use your browser to work and not having my account back would force me to switch to Chromium, which I don't want to. Please note my account and my email address are both legit. Thanks

Several weeks ago, because it seemed to be a Gmail-tab-only problem, Firefox Support advised us to contact Gmail Support.

It is now clear that the problem is with the Firefox browser. The attached screenshot shows an example of an affected tab.

Please fix this. Multiple versions of the same tab waste RAM and other memory, especially on a limited-memory device such as a laptop.

Firefox always crashes when I download a file. After that, when I reinstalled firefox again, the situation did not go away, but it was fixed only after restarting the computer.

I wonder if this was due to hardware or software error? I recently renewed some computer parts.

Crash report: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/b48749b1-d5f4-40fa-8ccb-34c9a0211128#tab-details

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

My Premium Malwarebytes has detected a Trojan on outbound, I usually Play Runescape, Have been playing for 15 Years +, 2 hours before this, i played on Runescape with no problems, since opening Runescape Launcher, game did not load, had reference also to firewall, since 2 hours prior Nothing had changed. i then rechecked firewall, and all was OK, I had added all URL from Runescape to exception, even company name, jagex.com I also use Norton 360, however Norton did not pick up Trojan, any suggestions? I was thinking of uninstalling Firefox, then installing again, I didn't do this as i have many Sites saved and wasn't sure if they would also be deleted, I play this game to keep my mind active, as i can't walk sit or stand for more then a couple minutes, ...

Below are details of Trojan: Cheers Ralph:

Neither my wife nor I can sign in to our G-mail accounts through Firefox on this computer. We have no problem signing in with either account through another computer. When clicking "Sign in," we get a page related to cache and cookies.

I have gone through the steps to delete "cache & cookies" for MY gmail account with no change in behavior. (My wife did not want me to remove hers because she believes (probably correctly) that her password memory on the PC would be erased!

I suspect we'll have to remove ALL google info from this computer, but don't know how to go about it. The only "App" listed with a google name is Google Chrome.

Suggestions? Remove and reinstall Firefox? Ditto Chrome? (Running Firefox 94. something.) I'd like to see her stick with Firefox, but this is a real barrier.

After the last update to Firefox on my Mac Book Pro running Mac-OS Monterey, I was offered an update to Ad Block Plus. This add-on, AdBlocker Ultimate shows as installed but it won't run at all and shows as disabled and my existing AdBlock Plus quits working. I'm using Adblock Plus on my windows based computers with all synced together with the Mac Book and the Windows computers are OK, but not the Mac Book. Is there any way to get my Mac Book working correctly? In addition the last update to Firefox on the Mac Book opens by offering me "Life in Color" every time it starts up. How long do I have to tell it I'm not interested? Thanks for your help.

Is there any official or unofficial article/website explaining all the about:config settings? Currently i am trying to pre-edit all my custom firefox settings with the autoconfig.cfg I noticed that dns over https can be pre-edited with the cfg, so im pretty sure the setting: enable https only mode for all windows, which by default is disabled for whatever questionable reason, can be pre-activated via cfg.

How could i do that?

"FVD Speed Dial disabled as an Add On but now I lost all my links" I too am suffering the problems that Mozilla have created by disabling the FVD Speed Dial - and can see a number of very negative posts - but the thread is now closed. The response from Mozilla - .....? Tiddly squat but a feeble excuse about something of little concern to most users. Then you close the thread to cut off any further adverse comment! Great. I do not understand why there is such a complete lack of concern for the massive disruption that has been caused to users by Mozilla's precipitous, unannounced action such that users who relied on this Add On had not had a chance to back up or copy their data in any kind of useable form. The action taken by Mozilla in disabling the Add On was an un-thinking, and negligent. Very annoyed by this - not impressed.

I installed Firefox on a new device and initiated a sync for multi-account containers - it promptly synced in the wrong direction. It eliminated all customization from what should have been the source (the existing device), overwriting it with the default settings of a first-time installation. I was quite surprised.

This leads me to a couple of questions.

1. Is there a sync version history or any way of rolling back a sync? 2. Is there a way to explicitly choose the sync direction?

Quite honestly it is very confusing that there is no reference whatsoever to which way an initial sync will go. I was hesitant to risk this, decided to trust it knew what to do (even though it didn't give me any indication that it did) and lost my gamble.

Firefox knows the device names, so can I suggest some basic reassuring UX be inserted into this process with something like "Initiate sync from X-DEVICE-FIREFOX to Y-DEVICE-FIREFOX?". A bit of clarity would be helpful here, as well as a way to roll back a syncing mistake instead of just having to gamble possibly losing hard-won customization with no going back.

Or have I completely stumbled past some obvious place where everything I'm requesting exists and is accessible already?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
