New Tab Shortcuts wiped out by Sync

Hi all, I suspect I'm out of luck but I'm hoping someone might have some ideas ... I'm using Firefox 94.0.2 and I have become a big fan of the ability to pin shortcuts/bookmarks to tiles in the New Tab screen. I customized my New Tab with 9 rows of tiles, 72 pinned sites, a very useful & convenient feature.

I got a new laptop for work, installed Firefox and logged into my Firefox account. I ran Sync to copy some open tabs over to the browser in my old laptop. Somehow the sync picked up the setting of having 72 tiles on the New Tab page, on the new laptop, which was great; but instead of my pinned sites, the 72 tiles were populated by random sites (presumably pulled out of browsing history). No worries; I'd expected that I'd have to manually configure the new laptop's browser anyway.

But then when i logged into my old laptop this morning I was dismayed to see that the pinned sites were gone! The 72 tiles are still there, but the pinned sites have been replaced by random ones. Now I'll have to reconfigure my old laptop's browser as well. :-(

My question: is there any way to restore the previous pinned sites without having to re-pin them all manually? And once they're all back in place, is there some way to export/save/lock them, so this won't happen again? If having Sync enabled across my two devices is going to randomly wipe out my pinned sites, then I suppose the New Tab tile functionality is not so useful and I'll just use an old-fashioned Bookmark list.

Thanks in advance for any insights!

When I want a URL, I type it in the address bar. Search has no relevance to a URL, and any intervention of Search gets in the way, and creates errors.

When I click in the search bar, it's because I want a keyword search with one of the search engines. A search is not a URL.

They are two completely different things, and treating either one as the other is error. I do not want Firefox to kidnap my cursor and teleport it to somewhere I didn't click. They are two entirely different spaces, they are not interchangeable. When I click in the search bar, it's because I want a search. Don't you dare second guess me and change my click to the address bar.

How do I turn off this stupid stupid stupid error behavior of FIrefox?

I tried this and it didn't work. In about:config • keyword.enabled and toggle it from True to False. • browser.fixup.alternate.enabled and toggle it from True to False.

Hello,

I was having trouble logging in because I thought I had disconnected my authentication app, but I eventually found it (so I am able to log in now). Before I figured this out, however, I tried to use my recovery key to log in. I found the text file that had my recovery key '[Email] Firefox Recovery Key.txt' (from 2019) and when I tried to use this, it didn't work. I noticed that the recovery page asks for a recovery 'code' instead of 'key' and when I was able to log in, it said I had never set up a Recovery Key.

Just wanted to flag the issue in case there's a reason why old Recovery Keys no longer work. It certainly could have been my error, but since I had the file, it seemed like it should've worked.

When I use gmail in FFx some emails don't fully open and display their contents but they do when I use MS Edge browser. Office Depot/Office Max sales emails in particular just open to show the Office Depot name, with no content below it. But when viewed in Edge everything works- the email displays everything that's on sale.

Hi II am a relative computer novice and I am confused by the concept of deleting cache and cookies.

I am having trouble with Firefox browser on Vanguard website. I was told to clear my cache and/or cookies.

I don't currently store any Vanguard passwords on my computer.

However, I’m afraid that if I clear cache or clear cookies I will inadvertently remove the passwords for all my other websites.

Is there a way to clear cache and clear cookies without deleting passwords?

On certain pages, the rendering is completely off. For example, on Vimeo.com, all the text is gone (see attached pics). I tried Refresh Firefox, but the problem persists. I tried Troubleshoot Mode and that fixes the problem. But when I restart and disable all of my extensions, the problem continues.

This only happens on my work computer Firefox. The Firefox versions at home on multiple computers work just fine.

Any thoughts?

When I read content on a web page, I like to use the up and down arrows and PgUp PgDn to go through it. I hate having to reach over for the mouse and line everything up to go to the next screen. Since the last update, it seems I can't do that. When I hit the down arrow, or the PgDn key, it skips randomly down the page. This is especially true if I am reading an article with pictures in it. I think this might have something to do with my clicking yes to an inquiry from Firefox that just appeared on the page while I was browsing. It asked whether I wanted to be able to block text with keyboard commands. I'd like to change it back to whatever it was before, but can't figure out how to do that. Bill

The following I wrote to initially question why showing dom properties didn't work at all, but I only had tried it on an textarea example on developer.mozilla.org so far. Turns out, on right this support forum's textarea I'm right now writing in, it does work. Could I make it work on developer.mozilla.org, too, like it works here on support.mozilla.org? That would be useful to inspect the html and javascript examples on there.

Original planned question: I very recently updated to Firefox 91.3.0esr (64-Bit), and I restarted working with the developer tools.

As far as I can recall it was possible to see an overview of an html page's element's functions somewhere in the developer tools. I tried "Untersuchen (Q)" ("Examine" or is it "Inspect" in English) on the textarea (in https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/HTMLTextAreaElement ). This openend the developer tools panel, the html was shown and the textarea-elemtent highlighted. There I right clicked and selected "Dom-Eigenschaften anzeigen" (View dom properties). The console opened, and showed: inspect($0, true) Restricted { }

(I want to access all the scroll properties of the textarea, and possible functions to scroll the textarea using javascript.)

Under the settings page of the developer tools -> standard developer tools -> I actived the checkbox "DOM", and restarted the browser (using the restart option under about:profiles).

For some reason I can't watch any of the licensed content on youtube I purchased, and I cannot watch anything on netflix. Both problems appeared at the same time so I thought they might be related. I have disabled hardware acceleration with no effect. I have cleared history and deleted cookies. I have also disabled my vpn, but none of it works.

Anyone else had this problem? Netflix says "browser not supported" and youtube says "problems showing licensed content."

After the last update to Firefox on my Mac Book Pro running Mac-OS Monterey, I was offered an update to Ad Block Plus. This add-on, AdBlocker Ultimate shows as installed but it won't run at all and shows as disabled and my existing AdBlock Plus quits working. I'm using Adblock Plus on my windows based computers with all synced together with the Mac Book and the Windows computers are OK, but not the Mac Book. Is there any way to get my Mac Book working correctly? In addition the last update to Firefox on the Mac Book opens by offering me "Life in Color" every time it starts up. How long do I have to tell it I'm not interested? Thanks for your help.

I posted a similar request here: https://mozilla.crowdicity.com/post/742615, because "Submit Feedback" link redirected me there. Maybe this is the right place for the feedback.

The release note of FF Ver:93 states this:"When available system memory is critically low, Firefox on Windows will automatically unload tabs based on their last access time, memory usage, and other attributes. This should help reduce Firefox out-of-memory crashes. Switching to an unloaded tab automatically reloads it."

This is something those of us with modest RAM (4GB, in my case) have been waiting for, for quite a while. But, FF continues to hog significant memory in spite of the claimed changes as above. I don't see any perceivable changes to my system performance thus far even a few days since the update. The issue, as you'd know better, elevated RAM usage invariably causes a continual spike in Paging, leading to excessive Disk (HDD) usage > resulting in an unresponsive system, which eventually ends up in a system freeze (in my case at least). The only way out being a hard power-down and restart of the system.

I have also set the "Content process limit" to 4 in the settings to no avail. We'd appreciate if you could configure FF behavior to adapt when system resources are low than wait for things to be critical.

I am unable to use the' how to enable cookies on Firefox, . i have tried to find the tools on firefix without success. When I click onthe bar on the top right hand side of the screen it opens but there is no 'OPTIONS' section shown.

Another problem is when I try  to add grammartically to  my firfefox browser it  does not add it.
I have been using an earlier version of Firefox without having any of these problems. When I try to sign into my virgin media  which I keep in my bookmarks it says that  cookies are not enabled in my browser. Something is rather strange with this browser and I await your comments.
