I have some problematic settings that are continually syncing back to devices when signing in - I would like to understand how to wipe all my data from the sync servers to essentially start fresh and push new data to the server from one device to then sync this to my other devices using Firefox.

Is it possible to remove ALL data synced from Firefox to the sync server?

Greetings,

Today, I went to access my Bookmarks, & found them "Empty", other wise "Missing"!

I found the "How to recover missing Bookmarks" topics, & that did bring back,what I consider to be My "Permanent Books", bu the section called "Other Bookmarks" will not come back, no matter how many times I go through the "Restore Bookmarks".

I Absolutely need that section to be restored, for I had many files in that section that I updated daily, that I planned to move to the "Bookmarks Section".

How can I get get this section restored?

Just yesterday some common redirect sites like adfocus and adfly stopped loading in nightly. example: http://adfoc.us/serve/?id=27122877684764

I'm guessing this was done fore security reasons as most people would fall for the fake downloads (or sometimes the entire page redirecting to a new tab when clicked anywhere on it), but it would be great if an option could be added to allow it to load like with: [hey cor-el ask for the link since I don't want this post to get removed :P]

since if you know what you are doing you do eventually work your way to the correct download even if it involves inspecting > deleting the invisible buttons covering the page...

There might already be something in about:config to do it so if so please let me know.

Hello!

I’ve been having quite strange problem with Firefox for a few months since version 80.X on clean Windows 10 (reinstalled from scratch after secure erase; the latest 20H2 version with all updates installed). It’s worth to mention that I’ve been using Firefox like 15 years and never had an issue like this before.

Firefox just fills up system drive completely (50+GB to 0 bytes remaining) few times a day under active usage. It happens randomly and I can’t identify the reason. I also can’t find any actual files saved on disk because it seems to be related to NTFS cache. I’ve tried disabling the following settings with no success:

browser.cache.disk.enable cached-web-content_cached-web-content browser.cache.memory.enable browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled

And couldn’t find any solution unfortunately. I usually have 2 windows opened ("common" and private) with 10 to 30 tabs each which is not much at all for i7/16GB I believe. This problem is extremely annoying and seriously affects SSD life so I'd really appreciate if someone would help me to resolve it. Thanks in advance!

Often when I open a web page, I have extra words showing, programming words from scripts perhaps, that should not be visible. Often these cover things I do want to see. I've slogged through several upgrades of Firefox but it never seems to get fixed.

This happens only on Firefox; it doesn't appear on Chrome or other browsers I've used, and it isn't isolated to one or two websites, though it doesn't happen on every website. Images attached to illustrate.

Hello,

this knowledge base article (Remove the Other Bookmarks folder from the Bookmarks Toolbar) claims that you can display the Other Bookmarks folder on the toolbar since Firefox 85 but it seems to be a lie.

In the screenshots down below, you can see my current settings. The Other Bookmarks folder is missing although my settings are correct.

How can I display the Other Bookmarks folder on the toolbar in Firefox? Thanks for your help!

I save many items and documents as PDF files using the Microsoft Print to PDF option, rather than physically printing on my printer. This worked fine for quite some time. This option no longer works when I am using Firefox, but it still works if I use Chrome.

I would rather not have to switch to Chrome whenever I want to print something to a PDF file.

How can I resolve this?

I have no idea how it started or why, but in the past couple days anytime I leave my cursor over a paragraph or chunk of text on a website, a black box appears where my cursor is with the text in it in white. If there is a lot of text, there's a sidebar to scroll down in the box. This disappears as soon as I move my cursor, but reappears as soon as I set it near some more text. I assume this is some kind of accessibility or reading feature, but I have no idea how I turned it or how to get rid of it. I've looked online and in my setting and had no luck getting rid of it. Any help would be appreciated!

I recently switch from Chrome to firefox for my main browser, I really like it! However, I like to use a music bot to listen to music with my friends over a discord call. The audio I'm getting from the call is low quality (not choppy or anything but like, grainy? like you're using half broke old headphones) and I don't have a history of this happening. A refresh of the page didn't do anything. I'm assuming it's a firefox issue because this is the first time it's happened. Are there settings I can use to improve this?

Whenever I click on a file to download in Firefox the dialogue box pops up asking what I would like to do with the file. I can select Open or Save as usual, but no matter what I press or how long I wait the ok button remains greyed out and unselectable. This means I can't download anything in Firefox which is very frustrating. Downloading works fine in other browsers.

So far I have run the refresh thing on Firefox which hasn't helped. I do not have any Parental Controls on as far as I know, this is a brand new computer, no children use any computers in this house and I have never activated anything like that. I have also cleared the downloads folder which had no affect either.

I just can't work out why it isn't working.
