THIS program needs WORK! I already added a whole paragraph describing my problem. Then per this pages clicked on the green button below. It took me to a page that said it couldn't find what I was looking for and when I clicked back, I lost ALL of what I had input before - Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. So here goes AGAIN:

I had been receiving error messages whenever I tried to load FF stating that it was already running. Jumped through all the hoops of how to fix that, including unchecking the read only in profile - BTW. After unchecking that box, clicking on apply now, and waiting for the program to stop doing whatever with the files. I clicked on OK and the properties closed. When I opened it up again - sure enough the read only box was filled in! - WTH - Then I installed the newest version (yesterday and everything worked). This AM when I went to open FF I got the same error message about it running and to close it. I am getting sick enough of this to start looking elsewhere. I have been a FF user for YEARS with NO problems. Until NOW.

So I have firefox on 2 computers. On one of the computers, there are 6 add-ons. But on the other computer, there are only 5. So 1 add-on didn't sync to the other computer. BTW, the add-on is "proxy swichyomega".

and by the way I've experiencing add-on sync problem for a very long time and for various add-ons, which is very annoying and very disappointing. I switched to Chrome in the last few months, now I'm giving firefox another try and I'm experiencing this.

and furthermore, the process for creating this post really sucks. why do I need to create an account? why not just use the sync account? why so many steps with each step displaying over-sized text?

and BTW, here's a piece of the last sync log from the computer that's missing the add-on:

I cannot find an old Firefox folder. I have looked in profile and found 2 logins.json files, dated 21.03 & 09.03, the earlier says corrupt, have copied both together with the sqlite file. How do I open these files to check them ? Tried Firefox in Safe Mode, still no logins. Help would be appreciated, thank you

Where did I see that article on XYZ. I'd like to regain a train of thought/investigation. Is bookmarks and history all there is? In reading about "Activity Stream" this seemed like the solution but it seems to lack an awareness of clustered, goal-directed activity. Is "Top Sites" and "Highlights" all there is to Activity Stream? Looking for some deeper integration/intelligence around re-displaying my history.

Every once in a while, I go back and try something that worked in older versions of FF -- accepting some cookies and not accepting others.

In the current version, 59.0.3, I go to options, security and scroll down, I've added yahoo to my Exceptions to "allow" rather than "allow for session" and then set the general setting "keep until they expire". Now, this setup seems to be a way to whitelist only those sites I want to allow cookies, expiring others when I close FF -- as that's the most control I now have, the "ask every time" being gone. However, when I close FF and re-open, it hasn't kept the yahoo cookies as the exception implies it should.

How can I customize which cookies stay past the session and which don't?

In a list of support articles, when I have scrolled to the bottom of the first page and hit NEXT, the next page loads in the same position, i.e. at the bottom of that page, as if I've already scrolled down.

I just got a brand new computer, downloaded firefox. I've tried to login to my twitter account, and an online class, and I get the same response every time. The site doesn't recognize my login, and when I try to reset my password it just hangs and won't go anywhere.

I am working on a project to be able to parse all extensions installed on a computer for each user profile on the computer. I have researched what I can, and haven't really found a good method of doing so. I was hoping that you may be able to assist me with a PowerShell (or the like) script that can be run which would output that type of information?

Thanks!

I installed Firefox for the new synchronization feature, both on my phone and on PC. On my phone the browser functions decently well, albeit extremely slow to search what I type in the bar at the top, usually requiring me to reintroduce it.

Anyway, the problem on my PC is sync always seems to be logged out, requiring me to retype my password (despite telling the browser to save whenever I do) and verify my email. I have done this about 10 times now, and as you can imagine its not pleasant.

Besides this, I have had the browser crash on me about 3 times, only to restart 5 seconds later with no message or indication as to what happened wrong, with the browser's settings reverted to the default (Yahoo search engine, etc.)

That about sums it up. I appreciate any help you can give me, and thanks in advance.

I have two monitors with resolution of 1920x1080 - my laptop screen and a 24" Dell. I'm using Windows 10 (updated) and the latest FF version (currently 57.0.2 64bit). My laptop screen is the main window and the Dell is the extended one. When my FF window is on the laptop screen (even when both monitors are connected) everything is fine. When my FF window is on the Dell screen, when I click on an addon icon on the toolbar, the opened window is cut on the bottom (and maybe on the sides as well), and since there are buttons on the bottom usually, I cannot use the addon properly. No scroll is available and I found virtually no way to get to the bottom of the window.
