Using v. 60.1 64-bit. All attempts to download are borked. No error message, but checking Downloads shos that they all fail (wihout explanation, of course). I have tried EVERY so-called solution for this I've seen on the 'net, and none of them worked.

Help, please.

Firefox no longer seems to be syncing my bookmarks among devices. In particular, the bookmarks I add on my work iMac do not sync to my android phone or my home macbook pro. I have done the following things to attempt to get things working:

1. Turned off firefox sync on all devices and then back on. 2. Deleted my firefox sync account and recreated it. 3. Deleted and reinstalled firefox on both my android phone and my macbook pro

I have also gone to about:sync-log and see that I seem to have lots of sync errors. I've attached a screenshot of the sync-log screen. I can't seem to attach the txt file of the latest error log, so I'm attaching two screen shots of it as well.

If anyone can help me out, I'd certainly appreciate it!

Edit: Here's a pastebin link of the error log: https://pastebin.mozilla.org/9086433

Until recently I was able to use google.ca as my default search engine. Now this is no longer the case. Since I am Canadian....and also live in Canada I would think that this would be a pretty easy task.....NOPE! Please fix. This is annoying enough to use a different browser and never look back.

It is pretty simple really. When I search from the address bar or search bar I need the search done from a Canadian prospective and as far as I can tell this is no longer an option? But it really should be.

Since the most recent update, opening a new tab does not show my top sites, it just shows a blank page. Top Sites is set to my home page. I saw another user had the same issue but uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox did not fix it for me. How can I fix this bug? It's been giving me many headaches since I use top sites to access my most used webpages when opening new tabs.

Firefox 60.0.1 seems unable to display some fonts. Most of my e-mails and numerous websites exhibit this problem. I've attached an image of what Firefox displays. I've attempted to change the default font in preferences, but the problem persists. Have others experienced this problem. Have any solutions been discovered?

BTW, if I paste this giberish into a text editor, it displays the text correctly.

Thanks for your consideration.

Problems with Firefox 60.0.1 on Windows 10 1803

I recently updated Windows 10 to 1803. At the time, I had Firefox 59 and was having some issues with certain sites. I updated Firefox to 60.0.1, but the issues remain.

Every time I open Firefox, it asks me if I want to make it my default browser, even though it already is. I found another potential solution to this, which I will do later.

The default Mozilla Firefox Start Page won't load. I just get a message that access was denied, and "The file at about:home is not readable."

When I go to access Google Drive, the page will not load or function properly. This was never an issue before.

Also, when I go to LinkedIn, the page will not load completely. I am sure there are other sites having this same issue.

My search bar at the top right stopped working after updating to version 60.0.1 I can type things, but enter, clicking the arrow to make it search, and the options to pick which search engine to use are all non-functioning. I tried it in safe mode and it does work there, though. I looked up the problem and it's not a new one, but the solutions suggested in older threads don't work for me. I tried disabling add-ons, then removing them entirely. I tried turning compatibility mode on and off. Tried turning off hardware acceleration. Nothing works, so I'm at a loss for what else to try, since safe mode does work.

How do I add Private Browsing back to context menu?

Mozilla Firefox (ver. 60.0.1, 32-bit) lost "Private Browsing" option in taskbar-pinned right-click context menu when running on Windows 10 ver. 1803.

I'm not sure where to report this, so I'm making the same report in both Microsoft's and Mozilla's feedback tools. Until this silent upgrade iteration, I could right-click on my pinned Firefox icon and choose "Private Browsing" to start a "Private Browsing" session directly. But now I see only "Mozilla Firefox" and "unpin from taskbar" as options in the right-click context menu. It is not a good thing that users are forced to open a regular browser window before getting to where said user can open a "child" "Private Browsing" window. Who dropped the ball and screwed the pooch, so to speak?

I've had about 15 or so tabs that open every day on launch. That didn't happen yesterday, and "restore previous session" is no longer in the menu. I was keeping these tabs open for reference and I want to get them back. I'm not aware of having experienced a crash, although the previous session has always restored after a crash. Don't know if this coincided with an update, either, as I have FF set to update automatically. FF prefs are still set to "show windows and tabs from last time." I NEVER use “clear browser history.”

Any ideas about whether it's possible to bring back that last session after one or two days?? Tried to look back through Time Machine on my Mac but I have no idea of what file I'd even be looking for, where it would be, or whether that would actually restore the last session before this happened.

Mac 21.5" desktop, OS 10.113.4, FF 60.0.1

Help?! Thank you!!!

I've been having trouble using the macys.com website with Firefox Quantum (but it does not happen with Google Chrome). Specifically, I try using the "sort by" button, and after I change to a different selection, nothing happens. Additionally, when I try using the filters on the left to filter sizes, etc., they do not work, either. I tried clearing the cookies and cache, as well as the steps listed in this website: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems. The only thing that works is restarting FIrefox in safe mode; everything else, including refreshing my profile, does not work.
