When syncing between two different firefox instances not on the same OS or computer which of them is the syncing from and to?

If I have one instance where I have Firefox on a different computer and another on a completely different computer which of them does Firefox know it's the latest one to sync from?

Not sure why this https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1400794 was archived.

Being archived I cannot "check mark" the question to show I too have this problem.

It is a basic problem and a piece of gravel in the shoe of many, I suggest, Firefox users who are developers.

Clearly, there is a need for a UI to navigate inspected content results and the original question author was exactly correct.

This is drip by drip making me want to end my return to Firefox and give up and use Chrome.

Even just an indication such as unarchiving the riginal post and linking to a "Pending to fix" Github issue would be a nice step.

Thank you Mozilla for all you do, and here's hoping this will get looked at.

So only on my FIre Fox, a window would pop-up (a window that looked like it was via the operating system) that was asking me for my NordVPN Username and Password. When I would push the "cancel" button, it would just keep popping up over and over, not letting me do anything else. So I would have to switch to a different browser, whereby that would not happen. Is this something that happens with FireFox?

I uninstalled Firefox and only use another browser now, but it is not happening anymore.

I was the victim of a ransomware attack, I knew who did it, but the police did nothing. I suspect those same persons are still trying to keep tabs on me to see if I am still trying to take some kind of action against them. I don't want to sound paranoid, but these people, who are known to me, destroyed my legal practice, so it is worthy to be paranoid.

Anyone know anything about these types of things?

Suddenly my Firefox stopped opening links on a page and when I open a new tab I can only get a blank page or the Firefox default page. Before this happened (and I didn't make any changes, just turned on my computer one day and things changed) I could open a new tab and it opened with my chosen URL, which happens to be msn.com, and say after opening I did a search for something and then clicked a link, it would open the link. Now I click a link and it shows a new tab up top, but never opens anything, just the circle going and going and going. Also when I open a new tab I can only get a blank page or Firefox default page, where I used to get my msn page. When the problem originally started I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled in hopes it would fix this, but it didn't. I have spent hours trying to Google an answer. As soon as I use Edge, everything works fine, I can click links all day long. I have used Firefox forever and don't want to give it up, but if I can't solve the problem, I can't use it because it's SO frustrating and time consuming not to be able to open a link. The blank page or Firefox default I guess I could get used to, even though it's super annoying for it not to work, when it did for years. Thank you for anyone who might be able to help.

I switched from google/Duckduckgo to Firefox/Duckduckgo because google has no respect for anyone's privacy and their search results have become pretty much useless. Now, I'm getting the same crappy, irrelevant search results in Firefox w/Duckduckgo that I get in google. Has google, in their unquenchable greed and constant quest for power, managed to somehow corrupt Firefox and Duckduckgo so that they can't get intelligent, relevant answers, either?

I have many problems with Firefox for Windows 11. Unfortunately, it occupies a very high amount of cpu above 88% and memory above 700 MB with two or three open screens and has a very high battery consumption, consuming more than 41% of 100% battery in less than an hour. Also, I used it a lot in Windows 10 and it was not like this at all, and its automatic update was perfect in Windows 10, but it does not work in Windows 11. Thank you for your attention and correcting software updates in the very near future

Hello,

My password saved are deleted every time I close FF. It used to be manageable because Google and other sites didn't require me to fill my passwords (cookies did the trick I suppose) but now I also loose access to gmail and Youtube every time I close FF. It's annoying to have to use 2FA every damn time. And keeping the passwords available.

I've tried every answer I found by looking around :

- tried to start in safe mode - disable hardware acceleration - I have no extensions

FF saves the passwords correctly (at least they appear in the saved password tab) but they are erased every time I restart FF. The cookies aren't automatically deleted (FF remembers my browsing history) but I need to relog into Google.

I getting frustrated.
