I realise from other answers that the Firefox account is for synching two or more copies of Firefox on different devices, but why does it not also allow one device to be 'resynched' with itself, in other words operate as a general backup in situations where a device is lost, stolen or catches fire etc.? It seems very hard to individually backup passwords, bookmarks etc. by copying multiple files, when the Synch system takes all these data and holds them encrypted, but seemingly won't allow them to be retrieved by the same user after a disaster...

On this Win-10 laptop, 64-bit, FF version 71: I'm not enabled to drag bookmarks via the "library" icon at right of pocket/star icons. Rather just via Bookmarks on Menu Bar.

But FF seems to have messed the Menu-Bar bookmarks by duplicating its drop-down endlessly. (I had frustratedly posted a pic of that in an alternate post)

I don't know why on earth everything is so defective. The library-icon venue disallows dragging, and also has duplicated lotsa stuff during import, plus omitted stuff. The menu-bar venue allows dragging, but has self-replicated over & over.

I'd have had my Favicons conveniently on my toolbar ......if only i could have clean-reinstalled by now. I'd be able to conveniently drag/drop from a non-replicated Bookmarks on menu-bar ......if only i could have clean-reinstalled by now. This has guzzled so much time already, that i'm getting sick from it & ever-deeper mired. (I didn't get a chance to check yet if there was a reply to my last followup on aforesaid issues. I might not get a chance to check on this either due to guzzled-time. It may turn out to be just another rhetorical posting of bugs which never get fixed.

I may have a misconception of how syncing works but I have a firefox account and I assumed that when I restored my computer and lost my bookmarks I could regain them when I signed in. This did not happen automatically and I'm not sure how to get the old synced bookmarks back. Please help. I apologize for the confusion.

Mozilla Support doesn't save my Firefox Account (Mozilla Support) email and password on the 'Logins & Passwords' page. I don't like that. I know that the Firefox Account isn't the same thing as the 'Sign in to Firefox' account in the browser, which is good because I don't want to 'Sign in to Firefox'. But it bothers me that the browser is saving my Firefox Account (Mozilla Support) password and email somewhere that isn't the 'Logins & Passwords' page. Please fix/change this behavior.

So I've made a few changes in userChrome.css to resize the tab sizes with some code that I've collected. In summary, I've changed the height and width as well as hid the tab title.

The problem that I've run into is that the tabs will kinda glitch out and the extra space won't collapse when the tab is closed (as shown in one of the screenshots). It seems to have to do with setting the width of the tab, since when I comment out the css styles to make them normal size again, tabs close properly.

I'd appreciate any thoughts y'all have. Thanks

I have installed a Ricoh printer which I access (for printing etc) by an Ethernet connection. My router gives the printer an IP address through DHCP but when I try to log into the admin functions on the printer Firefox gives me the message: Error code: SSL_ERROR_WEAK_SERVER_EPHEMERAL_DH_KEY Despite the comment on the Mozilla help pages there is no option to "Report errors like this to help Mozilla ..." and it's definitely not a malicious website.

Another noob from Internet Explorer problem. In IE on the favorites bar the favorites show only as the site's logo, if there's one available. The image below shows WalMart, Amazon, Youtube, a folder and more logos. The site name appears only if one hovers over the logo. This allows more sites to be on the favorites bar. So far, I cannot discover whether FF has this ability or not.

Is this possible in FF?

Earthlink E-mail both old and new versions do not work properly in Firefox 57 and higher. The function tabs above any message (print, delete etc.) don't respond to clicking. They used to work just fine. Everything works in IE but I use Firefox. The Options are set to open tabs in new windows as always. Earthlink tech support says it's Firefox's problem.
