I've been using Firefox with Windows XP on my desktop computer and I've made a Linux DVD to try out Linux, also using Firefox. It's working great so far and I'd like to be able to get to my Firefox bookmarks while I'm booted up in Linux; it's on the same computer just booted up from the CD drive. I setting up a Firefox account to "sync" it but it's looking for me to sign into a different device. Thanks!

I have no that is no computing knowledge--none. So I need very explicit instructions (imagine you're talking to your grandma):

This is what FF tells me is happening: policies.json

{
 "policies": {
   "AppAutoUpdate": true | false
 }

} And in poking around in the files on my computer, I did find this in the folder that holds Firefox. How do I reset it, so that I can update?

If anyone wants to walk me through this (reaaaal slow) --you will surely be rewarded with amazing karma bumps!!

Any way to restore sync'd bookmarks which came from an Android device to a Windows Desktop?

Okay so last year I built myself a new desktop PC around August 2020. I was using an Android smartphone prior to that and had some bookmarks on it I wanted to transfer to the desktop. I mistakenly thought it would simply 'absorb' those Android bookmarks into the bookmark collection I already had on this new desktop, but after using sync, it straight up removed the desktop bookmarks that were there and replaced them with the android ones exclusively. Another neat little 'feature' is how the bookmarks were also completely erased from the Android device after this.

So once that happened, I restored my old desktop bookmarks, but then the bookmarks that were imported from the Sync from the android were now gone. My question is this: are those sync'd android bookmarks actually anywhere at all, like did Firefox automatically archive them somewhere just in case, or are they just lost completely? Thanks.

i have been logged out of some of the sites often. i have a wattpad account and i am constantly logged out of it. in case i try to log back in, i discover my previously saved password doesn't appear. turns out, firefox wouldn't even have it, even after i manually create a new login for the same site. i close the firefox, open it again and the login is gone. i have set firefox to delete my site cookies but have given the right site exceptions. this problem does not stay for other accounts like google or such but only my most recent, such as this. the only add-ons i have is Firefox color, Tab Auto Refresh and Language Tool. it is quite tiring since i visit these sites very often and still be logged out or not have the password hand-in-hand.

For the Send websites a "Do Not Track" signal that you don't want to be tracked, one of the options is "Only when Firefox is set to block known trackers".

How do I set Firefox to block known trackers? How do I set Firefox to not block known trackers?

Is having Enhanced Tracking Protection ON the same thing as having Firefox set to block known trackers? So if I turn OFF Enhanced Tracking Protection, Firefox will no longer be set to block known trackers?

I've used Firefox forever, however in the last couple weeks, I can no longer use eBay as the webiste looks weird and my account is inaccessible. (See attachment.)

I've cleared all history/caches/etc. per forum suggestions. No change. So now to use eBay, I have to switch to Safari or Chrome (which I rarely use.)

Using new 2020 Macbook Pro and latest Firefox 80.0 update. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Guys and Girls,

For the love of all that is keeping me alive at the moment please help solving the issue of spell checker not working.

I have a new MacBook Pro and setup Firfox by installing it and siging in to sync.

The spell checker does not underline the words as I type here or in Google or WhatsApp Web.

Also when I right click no language opion appears.

I does work in Gmail for some weird reason.

After follwing a suggestion of installing an add-on dictionary and resarting Firefox, no change came about.

See attached for more...

Thanks in advance for your help.

I searched this forum but couldn't find an answer. I have "restore last session" turned on, but I'd like Firefox wouldn't reopen my last visited site after I close the browser by closing the last tab. In other words: if I close the browser by a regular means (by clicking the rightmost upper X, or by right-clicking the taskbar and choosing close window) it goes to the last viewed site when I reopen the browser – and that's ok – but when I close the last tab and the browser closes, I don't want to see this site again when I reopen Firefox. Is there a way to achieve this? By the way, this is the standard behavior in Google Chrome.

I have always had PDFs set to "Always ask" is described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file This hasn't changed. The dialog which asks what to do with the file used to have "Save File" selected by default. This was convenient, because this is usually what I want. However, the default selection has recently changed to "Open with Firefox", which I hardly ever want. This requires me to perform an extra step when accessing PDFs from the Web, which I do quite often. I am not aware of having done anything which would affect this, nor have I found a corresponding option to change it back. How can I restore the previous behaviour?

Hi all,

I am trying to customize my Firefox on Mac because the tabs on top interfere with the menu bar, thus I only want tree-style tab extension to work on the side, with the tabs on top disabled.

I followed this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184674#answer-1028260 as well as this clear guide on how to create userChrome.css: https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html When I tried to restart the browser, I seemed to have been logged out of my profile, with all customization gone and a standard white (instead of black) menu. I deleted the chrome folder and it is normal again now.

I suspect the userChrome.css file should contain more than just the one line I tried to add: #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } ; Is there any location where I can copy my current intra-browser customization into the userChrome.css file?
