Well, I've been doing Firefox sync for a long time, and it seems to work pretty well. But I'm a little confused. What EXACTLY is going on? Note: I do NOT want to know how to set up sync. I know that.

First question. When sync is automatic, when exactly does it do it? I pull down and do "Open menu" with the three bars, and then hover over the sync arrows-in-the round. It might say "Last sync: 5 minutes ago", and it might say "Last sync: 5 seconds ago". Nothing happened on my Firefox five seconds ago or five minutes ago. So who told it to sync? What determines when it is supposed to sync? I presume Firefox automatically does a sync if you change a bookmark or password.

Second question. What exactly is a sync? I gather that if the sync file (containing bookmarks and everything) in the cloud is younger than the local sync file, the local sync file will be replaced by the one in the cloud. If the sync file in the cloud is older than the local sync file, that sync file in the cloud is replaced by the local one. Is that what's going on? That is, it's all about the time stamp? Do not tell me "Sync lets you share all of your data and preferences (such as your bookmarks, history, passwords, open tabs and installed add-ons) across all your devices." I know that.

Third question. Let's suppose I want sync to ONLY be manual. As in, it will ONLY sync when I do Tools>Sync Now. How do I set it up for that?

Hi All,

Recently I noticed that downloading files using file manager is stopping at random times giving an error that hard drive can't keep up with the incoming data. I checked the Task Manager and noticed high I/O read bytes for FF. I was monitoring this for some time. After initial opening the amount of read data increased to 200MB within 5 seconds. Then when I was using the FF it increased to 1GB. On one occasion it reached 16BG within 4 minutes. This is causing my disk to slow down. The amount of data read I think depends on how many tabs I have open and how intensively I'm using FF.

Can someone help me to identify what is causing this?

Latest version of FF is used Add-ons and plug ins up-to-date Windows 10 x64

Thanks

I'm looking for an about:config switch that can be toggled to disable Firefox checking add-on age except when starting it (I suspect this age is "app.update.lastUpdateTime.addon-background-update-timer").

I occasionally set my Windows clock back about two years, which used to just throw security errors on new pages. Now it also disables add-ons, which is obnoxious. Even after resetting the clock and restarting Firefox, they still can't be enabled unless extensions.legacy.enabled is set to true, which seems inadvisable.

Alternately, is there a number I can reset "app.update.lastUpdateTime.addon-background-update-timer" or another variable to that will re-enable extensions?

Thanks.

Hello,

I work with individuals who use screen readers so all access to the computer is via keyboard shortcuts rather than any "point and click" with the mouse.

At one time, I know that I could throw focus to the "hamburger stack"/"three line" open menu button via a keyboard shortcut. As an example, in Chrome, I can throw focus on the "Customize and control Google Chrome" main menu button in the main toolbar by hitting ALT. Now I know that ALT under Firefox causes the classic menu bar to appear, but I could swear that there was some way to throw focus to the open menu button via the keyboard and that, if one needed to, to use the left arrow/right arrow buttons to traverse any add-on buttons that are to the left of the open menu button.

I have tried everything I can think of, but cannot get focus on the open menu button or any of the add-on buttons located to the right of the address/search box.

The add-on Read Aloud is incredibly helpful when one is a screen reader user, but only if one can get to the button that allows it to be activated, and that button always ends up in the area to the right of the address/search box and to the right of the open menu button. The only way I have been able to activate it in the current version of Firefox is via point and click, which is utterly useless because my students cannot point and click.

The collection of buttons that I can find no way to navigate to via the keyboard are enclosed in orange in the included image. They could be for any add-ons, not the specific ones from this screen shot.

If anyone can tell me how I can get to these buttons and move among them using only the keyboard I would really appreciate it.


edit: fixed so there is no horizontal scrollbars due to spaces before start of each part.

I changed a couple names of my bookmarked pages so that it would shorten the pop-up menus and sub-pop-up menus that appear whenever I hover over different folders of "Bookmarks" I've saved. I'm seeing those changes reflected on the device on which I made them but not on my other computer where I'm also signed in to the same Mozilla account.

Any idea why those changes aren't syncing and being reflected across all my devices? Or... how long do such changes typically take to sync?

Thanks! -Nate

I was troubleshooting an issue where Firefox was not loading an Extension as expected in Firefox 55 32bit. From looking at the Javascript calls the old Plugin which is still available was able to be loaded by Firefox. We found that plugin.load_flash_only was set to False on the affected browser. When we changed this back to plugin.load_flash_only = True, the extension then properly loaded.

I thought from documentation that the workaround was disabled in Firefox 53+? Was this recently changed or inadvertently re-enabled?

Background:

Was forced to upgrade to version 65 which broke the tabs on bottom setting. Tried to install a ESR version but it kept crashing. Went back to version 64 which was immediately forced to upgrade to the broken version again (which I didn't allow).

The problem is this. The people who have implemented this forced upgrade feature are probably using Windows 10 (forced updating) and are used to being treated like second class citizens by Microsoft. Forced upgrading is completely inappropriate. I've used browsers since Netscape, all of the Firefox versions, rarely use any other browser. Never had a problem except with your forced updates.

Lucky for me I found the registry fix for admins to disable updates. Reasonably inconvenient but a hell of a lot better than putting up with forced updates that break the browser.

Question:

How about bringing back the choice to upgrade. How about, at least giving two reminders to upgrade and then disabling the messaging. This messaging is extremely disrespectful - i.e. we are going to keep on annoying you until you upgrade (to a broken system).
