After watching this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAfY_bNJTBI i went to https://www.cloudflare.com/ssl/encrypted-sni/ and did the test. Result is 3/4.

Hello, I have two laptops, an old one with a synced firefox, and a new one where I want to get all the passwords, tabs, theme, settings and extensions. The OS is the same (NixOS, Linux).

I can successfully log-in and enable sync on the new laptop: it's possible for me to see the list of tabs from the other device, open and sync those tabs, but other things are not synced or synced partially.

For example: of the 30+ passwords on the old device, only 15 are present in the new device; no theme or extension is synced, bookmarks seems to be properly synced.

I don't know where to get more info about the sync (besides the about:sync-log page, which shows no logs), so I can't really tell what's going on. Indeed, nothing changes if I press the "Sync now" button.

I also tried refreshing firefox or creating a new profile from scratch and sync that again, but to no avail. Do you have any suggestion? Thanks

Since updating to ESR v. 91.30 the "Email a link to this page" button no longer uses Outlook [the Office program, not Outlook.com] to mail links. My Win10 settings reflect that Outlook is my default mail program, but my Fx about:preferences does not seem to want to use Outlook for this purpose. The subject button brings up instead a Gmail message. How can I use Outlook, not Gmail?

Hi experts,

I installed the latest firefox 91.2.0esr (64-bit) yesterday on OS centos 7.9, and use the Mojave-light theme. I change the close, maximize, minimize to the left top corner of each window and change such order under dconf-editor. Remember, my order is: close, maximize, minimize, (red, green, yellow), NOT close, minimize, maximize,(red, yellow, green).

Actual results:

The actual result is that: only firefox doesn't take effect. Only firefox window has the WRONG order: close, minimize, maximize. (red, yellow, green)

Expected results:

It should be: close, maximize, minimize (red, green, and yellow)

or:

how to change the order of close, maximize, minimize in the userChrome.css?

PS1: changing to the default theme, or using safe-mode doesn't work.

I want to disable the searching in the address bar. I have already changed the configuration settings in about:config.

I have Google search set up as my home page and I want to continue using that for searches. In Firefox 91, as soon as I start typing in the search box on the home page, it jumps to the damned address bar. After changing the configuration settings, now it wants to visit whatever I typed in! I also changed browser.fixup.alternate.enabled to false per another suggestion.

I suspect I'm screwed and I'm going to have to ditch Firefox for another browser, but if someone has some magic settings, I'm all ears.

To repeat, I have already changed: keyword.enabled to false browser.fixup.alternate.enabled to false

I do not want to disable the search suggestions. I want Firefox to stop moving my cursor from the Google search box in the middle of my home page to anything in the address bar.

I had this issue and was not certain where the problem occurs, either the browser, my computer, or the applications involved. I could not find the problem by googling a solution so I tried to isolate the source of the problem. The images are not the issue; I can move and view them using a variety of apps. I shutdown and restarted windows 10, cleared cookies and data, and tried another browser (Chrome was downloaded and opened as a guest) . That's where I finally had some success. I was able to login to eBay and upload photos. I believe something is corrupted with FF. Has this type of problem been noticed and resolved before?

I use html pages on an internal hard drive that link to pdf documents. For some reason since Version 91.0.2 was installed I can not get the pdf documents to open with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.The new version insist on opening the pdf's in the Firefox web browser. When I click on a pdf link at an external website the files will open in Adobe Acrobat. I used the code below to test the open in Adobe Acrobat execution and it works on the w3School example. When I run it strait from my hard drive the document opens in the Firefox web browser.

What is the last Firefox version that works with MAC Lion OS X 10.7.5?

I have a study program of that vintage that plugs into firefox and the version on the computer now is 3.0.10 (from year 2009 and the program does not work with it.

The program is compatible with Lion OS X 10.7.5 but the Firefox version is too old.

The version 3.0.10 on the computer does not work well with most sites or crashes. The intent is not to expect to browse, just be new enough for this program for its dedicated use.

I truly hope the developers at least refer to this site for concern requests for fixes.

It seems every about:config fix for the spacing of the bookmarks as well as the photon/proton fixes are doing nothing on Firefox version 91.

Is there anyway to get a simple checkbox that fixes the views for desktop? The whole world is not working on tablets or phones and this is so frustrating to see functionality continually broken with updates that are obviously required because of security issues that plague the online world.

Can any developers please respond to when users can see a fix to this issue? I know this is far from life ending but it breaks the visual aspect of the browser so badly.

After installing FF ver. 91 for Mac OS (desktop) GMail will no longer load its themes, and only appears as a black and white simple HTML version. Many of the page functions are there, but invisible, and can only be found by hovering the cursor over the general area where these active and regularly used GMail features are on the page. Many page elements also have wire frames around them. Even the GMail log in portal screen is not displaying correctly. The Google Workspace logo also fails to fully animate when navigating to the login page.

Reverting to older versions, FF 89 and 90 proves that the problem is with FF 91. The issue does not affect Safari or Chrome in my experience. Totally clearing all cache, cookies, sync'ed profiles and user accounts in this FF product does not fix this issue with FF 91.

This appears to be an interface bug that needs to be sorted. Can you please help?
