I just formated my laptop, when was asked to give a name i just ended up writing the same one as the last one, then i logged in in Sync and all my data was lost, passwords, bookmarks, history, everything. I'm pretty sure it was because the laptop had the same name and was registered as the same device in Sync at the time of formatting. In my smartphone the data was gone too. Is there anything i can do? or it all lost?

When I close down FF and reopen it, the first page comes up find and there was not a problem to navigate to here on your site but I still can't get to any other sites. When I click on this link it keeps coming back to this page. "We've made some educated guesses about your current browser and operating system. Show details »" Please help, I like using Firefox.

There are extensions that I am not using 99% of the time or use them at one website.

There a two options:

  • Make UX more friendly: add button to list an extensions with checklist to disable OR add "Disable extension" option inside menu between "Manage extension" and "Remove extension" (by right mouse click at extension icon at Toolbar.
  • Be cool if Mozilla Team will develop mechanism to switch between extension modes. As example I create my default exts mode (ublock, firefox notes, multi-account containers), but also time by time I save webpages by SingleFile extension, also I use proxy extensions so I create list for it. Lists may be as additional (default + proxy) as independent from scratch (proxy only).

Why? Privacy by isolation processes in the browser.

I was using Firefox as my default browser and had data like bookmarks, add-ons for everyday use, etc. but after I reinstalled windows and installed Firefox again I forgot which email was link to my data as I had multiple emails logged in. Now I have tried 2-3 emails which didn't work in bringing my data back and I don't remember the password of my other emails, I can recover them by forgot password but I it says resetting password will clear history bookmarks, etc.| I can afford to loose history and saved passwords but is there a way I can get Firefox back to my configuration and add-ons, etc I was using previously?

I would like to create a FireFox shortcut in the Windows 10 Startup folder so FireFox loads automatically at boot time, in a minimized Window (or better yet, the system tray). There does not appear to be any way to make this happen. I have searched pretty extensively. If there is a way, I'd like to hear about it. If there isn't, I would like to suggest it as a feature for future development.

Only on Firefox (not Chrome, for example) animated gifs and videos on Twitter will not display -- they instead show a black screen. When paused or not yet played, there is a visible image, but as soon as I press play, it goes to black. The audio on a video will play just fine, but the screen/image is still black.

I have checked my graphics drivers for updates and they are all up-to-date. Also the gifs/videos play just fine if I use Chrome.

Firefox is up to date. I'm on v 93.0 (64-bit).

It all stalls and then eventually, Mozilla apparently starts to respond and it goes to the page I choose. I have kept up with all the updates and am not a huge online person in the first place. Why does this happen? It is so often, I am tempted to change browsers.

Hey all,

everytime I start Firefox, it automatically displays Nord theme that I was using some time ago.

I want to change that theme to something else, so I switched to the default dark theme. Upon restarting the firefox, the theme gets reset back to Nord. In theme selection settings I can see that the dark theme is enabled, but firefox actually still displays the Nord theme. I'm assuming it's because I have Nord theme synced from my account from my previous pc installs.

To remove the Nord theme I tried to:

  • Switch to a different theme
  • Remove the Nord theme from my themes list, leaving only the default Light, Dark, System and Alpenglow themes.
  • in about:config I have set services.sync.prefs.sync.lightweightThemes to false
  • In firefox settings, under sync, I have unchecked syncing of add-ons.

But firefox still uses the Nord theme upon every start up, regardless of what other theme I chose.

How do I get rid of the Nord theme?

There are several things we can sync on Firefox account. I tried to search the limits on storage and TTL for the stored data, but found very few information and threads. I didn't found any official documentation stating related info. These limits are not stated fully and clearly anywhere. So, I asked here again.

What are the storage limits & TTLs for these syncable items :

  • Bookmarks
  • History
  • Add-ons
  • Settings
  • Open Tabs
  • Login Credentials
  • Credit Card info

Also, I found on some thread stating that Firefox sync stores data for 60 days, and Firefox can receive it. But, Firefox cannot send data older than 30 days. Please clarify this behaviour as well.

Thanks in advanced..!

Starting a few weeks ago firefox refuses to play video from netflix and prime video. I've googled a bit, but nothing worked. Using firefox 93.0 on windows 10, here is what I tried so far (not necessarily in that order):

  • Refresh page
  • Restart PC
  • clear cache
  • disable extensions
  • run in troubleshoot mode
  • refresh firefox profile
  • try a new firefox profile
  • reinstall firefox
  • checked whether the drm box is checked/checked and unchecked it a few times
  • reinstalled widevine
  • checked whether privacy.resistFingerprinting is false, since someone apparently had a netflix error related to that setting

Probably forgot some. Also works fine on other browsers, just thought it was odd.

Here is what the errors in the debugger say:
