Firefox Sync: Why aren't Shortcuts able to sync?

Hello all,

There are a number of threads on this topic asking how to sync Shortcuts from one device to another. It appears that across the board the answer is that you cannot do this (see: this, this, this, this, or this to identify just a few).

It does appear to be the case that you can copy `browser.newtabpage.pinned` from `about:config` but this cannot be transferred to iPadOS, iOS, or easily shared between Android and macOS. It also does not update long term.

There have also been requests for this feature to be added (see this) though a lot of content around this topic appears to be confused as to what to call it and is notated within other recommendations.

I am wondering if anyone from the Mozilla/Firefox team can speak as to why this setting is not available, and what would be needed to see it become possible to sync shortcuts (and ```especially``` pinned shortcuts) within Firefox Sync.

Thank you!

Hello, I'm teaching German as a foreign language - both f2f and online via Zoom. Up until recently I could call up the websites I would need for the online training, turn off the computer to save power and when I started it again the next day, all the tabs from the previous session would automatically reappear when I started Firefox. But now I cannot click the option "Open previous windows and tabs". I really don't want to completely delete this program and start from scrap because I'm scared I might lose all the bookmarks I collected for my job over the years. So could you please help me fix this problem without having to resort to drastic measures? Thank you so very much, kind regards, Silke Eckelmann

In the past when I saw an article that I wanted to email to myself, I would click on the envelop icon and it would go to “choose and application to open the mail to link” I would choose if I remember correctly Yahoo and it would open up.

Now the only choice I have if Firefox, and when I click on it nothing happens. What is the problem?

Under”Choose other Applications”, there is nothing to forward that article to me.

Firefox not compatible with some websites

Today I tried to place an online order to pickup from Texas Roadhouse, but no matter what time I chose a message said it was not available. The only selection that worked was "Earliest Available Time". Finally I called to place an order. Firefox worked 2 months ago but I don't recall which version I was using at the time.

Today I was using FF vers 97.x and later updated to vers 99.0.1 figuring that might be the problem, but it made no difference.

Later I tried Windows 10 Edge & that worked. Then tried a Chromebook & that also worked.

I've also had problems going to the Tracfone website & so have several other people. It's hit or miss with Firefox & usually it doesn't work. But Chrome or Edge seem to work for everyone.

Is this a website problem or a FF problem?

Hello

I ran a full scan with Windows Security on 13/05/2023 and it detected the following inside my Mozilla folder:

Trojan:HTML/Phish.VS!MSR

Please see the photo below for the exact location of the affected files.

I'm aware that this is my fault rather than it being an inherent issue with the browser, however I would like to know if this has/could pose an actual threat to my machine?

The following article says it wouldn't pose a threat unless the file is opened, however the article isn't maintained and as such I worry the information in it is outdated: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Firefox%20cache%20file%20was%20infected%20with%20a%20virus

I did open the affected file in Notepad but this was after I had already quarantined the threat. It appears the Trojan was part of: (SCRIPT001)

It's worth noting that I run a third party AV on my machine (Kaspersky Plus) and when I ran a full scan with it, prior to the Defender scan that detected the Trojan, it didn't flag any issues.

Thanks in advance for any help, it's appreciated.

I recently suffered a bug in my PC that led to me having to reinstall the OS. I am now trying to reclaim my session/bookmarks etc from Firefox but I'm not able to sign in on the browser. I'm able to sign in on a web page with my email, but no luck with the actual browser menu. The only option I'm seeing otherwise will be to reset my password, but that will seemingly delete years of important data that I only have on Firefox because I trust it!

Please help! Desperately trying to come up with a solution!

Deleted all tabs and bookmarks. Firefox has been doing that for too long now. Get your act together. Too many updates. Too many times you delete everything. The hassle getting it all back, should not be needed & you refuse to sort it. Why do I think that? Because the same problem has been happening, for at least 10year.
