What does Sync do? (My primary concern is that I do not want to lose information) ... I am NOT talking about how to set Sync up, but when I execute "Sync NOW" ... what does it do?. There are many ways a sync can be performed.if I don't understand what it does, I can lose information. If i execute "Sync NOW" - does can Sync both push or pull information? - will Sync push information from the computer where I am sitting ... to a server or buffer then push to all my other devices? ... or will it push directly to all my devices? ... or instead of pushing ... without warning, Sync pulls information to my device? - Is the transfer of information immediate or is there some type of buffer? - Is the transfer of information a (complete or partial) merger or does it override all existing information? - Is the complete transfer of information immediate or is it buffered? - when pulling information does it inform of a timestamp on the information source of when it was last updated? - are these operations immediate, scheduled, or automatic? Do you see where I am going? ... I need to be able to predict Sync's performance.

Hi Forum Folke,

I keep having issues with Firefox (84.0.2) when trying to make online purchases... the dialog window (PayPal or whatever) that should pop up doesn't. The purchase process stalls because the next step doesn't happen. I have to use Chrome to make the purchase instead. This didn't happen until the last upgrade, now it's a frequent problem. Doesn't happen on all sites or with all vendors, but often enough to be a headache.

Since this is a 64-bit browser, should I be using the 64-bit version of Java, or does it not make any difference? If it does (or might) make a difference, how do I tell FireFox to use the 64-bit version (installed in the programsx86/Java/32-bit directory)?

Thanks for your help!

Windows 7 Pro, Firefox, current, 84.0.2.

I've tried logging out and back in, I've cleared ALL history, cache, cookies, etc. I've tried restarting Firefox, no help. Gmail, Voice and contacts all show fine. This was working fine last night, less than 12 hours ago. System was shut down last night, and booted this morning, and this problem has occurred. Logged in via Chrome and calendar shows fine, so it's likely some probem with firefox. Hate to reset firefox and have to load all my extensions again.

Here are the extensions/Add-ons I have loaded. But bear in mind these were loaded last night, and have been loaded for many months at least, with no problems. AND, other Google site, gmail,voice, contacts all work fine.

Adblock Plus Bitwarden Don't Fuck with Paste Facebook Container Flash and Video Download Gmail reverse conversation Google Analytics Opt-out Google Analytics Opt-out Add-on (by Google) HTTPS Everywhere IDM: Youtube to MP3 Javascript Switcher Lastpass Open With Print Edit WE SingleFile

Below pic is what I see. Blue bar at top scrolls left to right continuously.

I've tried the Firefox reset/refresh option, exact same issue.

I'm even willing at this point to uninstall Firefox and reinstall from scratch, but how do I ensure ALL Firefox system modifications, etc. ARE removed?

HELP!

Thanks.

Please help a single mom with our personal computer in the house hold that is for school work only. It is on windows 7 and we need to COMPLETELY BLOCK/DISABLE ALL access to the youtube website. I can not figure out how (upgrading to the newest windows version is an IMPOSSIBLE option right now unless they've made it free, thanks to the circumstances created by COVID-19). Thank you in advance.

My boss can open her Google Calendar in Chrome and Edge, but not Firefox. It just sits on a blank page and tries to load, but never does. Nothing more than a blank page and the spinning circle. We have:

Cleared the cache Restarted the browser

I saw someone on Reddit posted they were having the same problem 30 minutes ago (2:45 pm EST). However, my calendar opens find on Firefox on my own computer.

Any ideas/solutions? Possibly related to the upgrade to 84.0.2?

Thanks matt

Starting today (Jan 22, 2021), Google Calendars is not loading on Firefox (Windows 10 laptop, Firefox 84).

Clearing cookies fixes the problem, but the solution doesn't stick; I clear cookies, am able to open and load Calendar once, and then when I close the Calendar tab and reopen it I'm faced with the same problem.

Is this a known problem on Firefox's end? What can I do to fix this?

Firefox apparently has a new print feature that is intended to replace the print dialog box. I would like to know how to turn it off. It is a good try. My printing off the web usually involves only selected pages, i.e. not All pages. With the new Firefox feature, I don't like having to click on All, then click on Custom, then select pages to print. I would much prefer using the system dialog box where I can just immediately enter pages, 2-3 for example, and print. Edge has this same printing issue, too many clicks to do the simple task of printing only specified pages.

I just got a Pi 4b with 8gb. So I picked up SanDisk MicroSD 64 GB with 170Write.

Loaded the Ubuntu Desktop 20.10. It boots in 30 seconds. Wow...

Printer setup was super easy... Had to add Clementine to Play M4A music from itune files.

Ok... Loaded just fine. Plays Great. The Ubuntu 20.10 comes with Firefox 81.0 browser. My favorite Browser. Went out to my Favorite Anime site to play some video. Animefreak.tv

Error loading player: No playable Sources Found

Well the Video Codec plugin not there. Checked the Add-ons Enabled

 OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc.

This plugin is automatically installed by Mozilla to comply with the WebRTC specification and to enable WebRTC calls with devices that require the H.264 video codec. Visit https://www.openh264.org/ to view the codec source code and learn more about the implementation.

 ! OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. will be installed shortly.

So I installed the new version of Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit). ok. I am using it now. No Video play back in Firefox on Ubuntu 20.10. Same Problem. I turned on the Allow Automatic updates in firefox openH64 Video Codec. Maybe it will update and install. Well I am not holding my breath. Its to bad, because the Pi 4b is just as fast as my Laptop HP envy running win10.

If you can find a fix. I would be grateful.

My google calendar will not load appointments. The page loads but the appointments never load and the blue loading bar at the top continues to refresh as if it is trying to load.

Things I have tried - Turned off all extensions - Ran firefox incognito (works if I clear the cache) - Cleared Cache (works only once)

I am looking first for a solution to the problem above. If I don't find one, is there a way to reload firefox and retian all the bookmarks?
