I can't play anything on Bandcamp. I don't know if this is a Firefox problem or an OSX problem or a Bandcamp problem, but hoped it might ring bells with someone here. Been going on for a good couple of months (but I was away for a chunk of that so just getting back to it now). Bandcamp is the best of the streaming services and the fairest to musicians, so it deeply bothers me I can't play anything on it. I just click play, the pending wheel goes round as it fails to play track after track, and then it stops. I had a look on their help but no help there (at the time). I'm running Mojave (OS 10.14.16) on a 2018 mac mini.

Hi I have been using firefox and thunderbird on WINDOWS 8.1 for many years now. I have easily restored firefox and thunderbird profiles(bookmarks,passwords,themes,addons etc.) after periodic formats and reinstallations. But now I am planning to move to fresh install of WINDOWS 10. Will simple copying and pasting of profile folder work or should I use Sync? or any other option? I haven't used Sync till now,so a bit hesitant.

I keep having to do a system restore back to the version prior to update to get it to work.

Hello Community ~

I have many, many open browser windows with multiple tabs. Is there a way to save the windows that I am not immediately using. The competitor browser offers such a feature where one can just click the browser window off to the side, and when reclicked the window with all the tabs pops open for use. Everything is saved but it does not open automatically (which I don't need it to) on startup. I hope that was concise?

Thank You and Kindest Regards ~

I am a long-time Firefox user, but I've noticed a recurring problem with Firefox on my Ubuntu system (Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS, 64 bit; Gnome 3.6.3; Windowing system Wayland), which is that some of the text will sporadically be disrupted.

When I use "Inspect Element," it seems that the font being used is Twemoji Mozilla, which is surprising as the field is plain text, not emojis or wingdings.

The two images attached are what I'm seeing.

Before the switch to Quantum, there were addons like Extension list dumper and Infolister.

Currently, Chrome has a nice extension called Share Extensions for Google Chrome™, which, basically, is what I'm looking for in Firefox. Share Extensions for Google Chrome™ exports an html file with each addons' description and it's name is also a hyperlink to it's page in the Chrome Web Store. It has no version info, but better that nothing.

My searches for any kind of list exporter came up empty.

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?

I've configured my Firefox for Fedora to ask me every time in which directory I want to save the file. The default directory used by Firefox is /run/user/1000/doc/ Even after changing the directory and downloading another file, Firefox keeps reverting to this /run directory. Can I make Firefox stick to the latest directory I used? I do not want to use a fixed Download directory

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'. It's very irritating. Does anyone else have this problem, and is there a fix for it? Thanks in advance

Whenever I go into a google meet for school, it doesn't work the same as it did on Microsoft Edge or Chrome. In Firefox, I keep getting disonnected at random times and some parts of the page are completely broken. I've sent a lot of messages using the feedback button in google meets, but they seem to be doing nothing. I don't want to switch to Chrome or Microsoft Edge anytime because Firefox is the best. Please help, thanks.
