Firefox does not show history before certain time

I've got multiple clients set up to sync via FF sync. Some are older, some are newer.

However, looking at the newest client (set up ~2 weeks ago), I noticed something: It only shows a browser history up to approx. one year in the past. I've checked other clients. My oldes client goes back to ~2016, which is 4 years form now. I know my oldes client is older than 2016, so there has to be more.

Does FF Sync skip older entries? IMHO I'd have to see the exact same history on my older client than on my newer client. That is not the case. Any ideas?

Every time I open Firefox, a javascript from IcelandSue.com tries to connect to the internet. I've refreshed Firefox, cleared the cache, used NoScript to block this script, but it always remains. I've found the site listed as a Data Miner and would like to delete it from where ever it has installed itself inside of Firefox. Thank you, jason

Every time I click on an ICS file, it asks me what to do with it. I tell it to open with Thunderbird, and I check the box for it to do that by default. But it doesn't remember, so I have to select Thunderbird from the list every time. Thunderbird is set as the default in the Options>Applications menu, but it still asks every time.

pressing Ctrl+F doesn't open the "find in this page" toolbar, on any page.

  • doesn't work in safemode, either
  • DOES work when selecting from the "Edit" menu (where it shows the shortcut as being ctrl+f)
  • I read online that Ctrl+G might work? this one has mixed results for me... I think it's working like F3, repeating the previous search, if there is one, and if it has any matches, and only if neither of those are true, opens the "find in this page" toolbar
  • pressing "/" and apostrophe both do their things (but not when an input/textarea has focus, of course)

Hi! I forgot my password for my Firefox account and after - a lot - of times I decided to risk and restart my password. It said I MAY LOOSE SOME of my information, details, passwords, tabs etc. but it said about some of them.... I restarted my password and i lost absolutely everything :(((( My tabs, details, history, password. Everything. My account is whole clear! Why would they secure all details into password?!! if someone forgot password it is first thing to reset it, but in this case u reset ur password and u loosing everything, which make no sense.... what is the point of it ? :/ Is there any chance I can get back all my stuff??? If not... Will I also loose everything from my other computer? (I just tried to log in on another device. I cant loose it, there are too many important things I have ;((((( What can i do to not loose my all things on other device? shall i turn off sync here now, and when I turn on my other device it will stay? or it is too late bcoz I've pressed to sync it here (and nothing showed up) Help me please ;(((

I use Firefox BROWSER 80.0 (64-Bit). Win 7 X64 SP1.

It is occuring now for 2-3 weeks. When I try to look any twitter video, and try to change the volume, I can only mute it or change to 1/5 volume. The volume control doesn't react to the mouse. On chrome everything works.

SAME problems on vk.com (russian facebook a kind of). It is occuring now for 2-3 weeks. Notification element sometimes just glitches and doesnt show new notifications if you click on the symbol. Also the main search field is not reacting to the inputs. And the sound controls of the videos glitch in the same way. On chrome everything works flawless.

SAME problem on Web-Discord. Can not enter a message, because "enter" on firefox doesn't send it but starts a new text line.

Hello years ago I signed up to be a release channel user. I no longer want to be part of that as prefer to have updates to firefox only when they are released to everyone and not beta releases. Is there a way to ensure I dont get these early upgrades to my browser but keep my firefox account and all my data ?

Any help on this would be appreciated many thanks Dino

I have disable FF title bar because it takes valuable space. FF gives from WinXP until now this ability. But in Windows 10, when you half minimize the window the minimize/restore/close buttons dissapears. Could we fix this without enabling the title bar ?

I attached 2 images of my FF bars to saw what exactly I mean.

At first image (Capture1) the window is partly minimized and the Close button is out of window.

At second image (Capture2) the window is even more minimized and the minimize/restore/close buttons is totally out of window.
