I don't know why I can't find any help articles on this, I can't possibly be the only one. My firefox account is not syncing between my devices. I am logged in to my firefox account on all of my devices. I only have one account. I can save a password on one, but it does not save on my account and I am not able to retrieve it between devices. What is the point of syncing if I can't access my passwords on other accounts? And yes, I have sync turned on. Also, why does it not auto fill across devices when the password is saved?? It seems like a useless feature.

Since updating to Android version 81.1.4 (which I don't particularly like as the whole fabric of the app renders it more difficult to use) I have had problems syncing across my Windows 10 desktop, my Apple MacBook Pro (OS X 10.15.7) and Android phone. It is as if the last update to both Android and the Windows version of Firefox have destroyed the syncing process that previously existed. Trying to follow the prescribed process for syncing has also proven difficult to the point of frustration. I seek a clear set of the steps involved with explanations of the steps that appear to me to have been omitted by the Firefox cognoscenti so that I can achieve the synchronisation of passwords and bookmarks across platforms. To help understand where I am at in the process and what is going wrong, I have tried to sync devices and add devices by opening Firefox on my Windows desktop and logging into my account. From there I select Account settings-Sync settings-Connect another device. This opens a new tab (Connect another device that has a dialogue box with a 'Show code' button. Clicking on the button produces another dialogue box with a Q-Code displayed that is supposed to 'scan in the code from within Sync settings'. From there on I am lost. I cannot discern any Q-code viewer within the sync settings on my Android device and using my camera results in nothing but an image of the code. Can someone please help with a clear explanation of what I need to do to synchronise Firefox across my platforms and restore my faith in the browser that has served me well for about the past two decades? I have neither the time nor inclination to trawl through all the KB articles that appear somewhat related but prove simply to add to my frustration with the product.

I have recently updated to version 81.0.2 of Firefox, and have noticed that for some reason, twitter will randomly sign me out for no reason even if I don't sign out of the site when I close the tab, forcing me to sign back in every so often. Curiously, something similar happens with gmail, as it will make me sign in both of my email accounts, even though normally when I bring up the gmail website it usually just asks which account I wish to sign in to. I have not cleared my cookies in the last few days, nor my cache, so this shouldn't be happening. What exactly is happening here? I didn't have this problem in the previous version of Firefox. Can anyone help?

Since Facebook imposed its new version on users, I find that often, when I share something from an external source (like a newspaper article), as soon as I post it and the popup disappears, Firefox immediately opens a new tab that says 'close this tab to continue'.

In Firefox, I keep getting disonnected at random times and some parts of the page are completely broken.

Hi!

For quite some time I run Firefox in KDE over wayland using Gentoo package. Recently I enabled webrender to fix bad flickering while loading sites, and while that worked I now see garbled text display towards the end of longer web pages. I do not remember which Firefox version it was when I switched on webrender, but the issue persists through a few recent Firefox upgrades till my current 81.0.2 (this is Gentoo linux build)

Attached screenshot is of the bottom of this page https://cdn.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v5.x/ChangeLog-5.8.15 While top of page is always good looking, garbled text starts somewhere towards the end of page.

I'm not sure if this is a new issue or the same one as in bug 1667534.

Is there any easy option to fix this, or this should be filed as new bug?

I am running Firefox inside Windows Virtual Desktop and I have had several issues with performance. At times the I will only have 6-8 tabs open and the entire application locks up and is unresponsive. I'm unable to do anything until I can kill it from Task Manager. Even after I have stopped the process it appears that there are still processes under my user that don't go away. In the same manner, I've had the browser lock up and the screen goes completely white and again has to be closed out through task manager. I have turned off Hardware acceleration, turned off any proxy option, only have last pass running as an add-on and I'm running the latest version.

Any help would be appreciated!
