Dangerous Sync Language and Help with Fixing Sync Profile

There are 2 processes involved in Firefox Sync, and 0 differentiation between them in the language used to describe what Firefox Sync does in any of the documentation, this makes nearly every discussion on the topic highly confusing to borderline misleading.

When you press Sync, you are pushing settings to Firefox servers. When you sign in to Sync, you are pulling settings from Firefox servers.

Both of these steps are referred to interchangeably as "syncing" and there is next to no documentation of what causes each to occur nor what they actually do.

Why is this dangerous you might ask? Well, let's say I buy a new computer, I want to set it up the same way I use all my devices, so I sign in to sync to synchronize my settings, makes perfect sense. Nothing tells me anything is happening when I sign in, so I click the sync button because I want to synchronize my settings with my other devices. Big mistake. I've just overwritten the server-side sync profile with a default Firefox profile. You know how you fix that? You sign in and press the sync button to overwrite the sync profile again. But you know what happens when you sign in? You become synced with the now blank sync profile and lose all the settings that you want to be pushing to the sync profile. This just happened to me. Thankfully I was only choosing to sync add-ons and options AT THE TIME and I have backups that are about 6 months old and I rarely change settings, but some things like my homepage URLs are something that I do change fairly often, and I'm sure some additional sites were whitelisted since by default I just reject all cookies. I also thankfully use policies.json to block updates so I didn't immediately get assaulted by that too.

SO! I HIGHLY suggest that when merely signing in to Sync, the default should be for syncing to be off to start off with, so that you can choose what to "sync" BEFORE it occurs. However, because of the language, the question arises, what am I choosing to sync for? Am I choosing what to PULL from servers? Or am I choosing what gets PUSHED to the servers? When syncing is turned on, does that mean I an pulling the settings that I have chosen? Or am I am pulling ALL settings while only pushing what I have chosen IF I click the Sync button? Or do I push EVERYTHING?

It's incredibly unclear how the Sync feature works and both of the "main" articles on it are completely useless for understanding it because the term "sync" is used interchangeably for pushing or pulling settings.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-choose-what-information-sync-firefox https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/sync-custom-preferences

What are the correct steps to rectify this horrid situation? Sign-in, set-up sync, choose "Options" and "Add-Ons" again, THEN copy over the backup settings, THEN Sync them to the "cloud"? If I have 2 different devices setup with sync, and 1 chooses to sync options and the other chooses to sync bookmarks, then I click sync on BOTH devices repeatedly, what occurs?

There are thousands of answers to this question but I can't find one that works for me. I am using a tablet computer without a mouse or keyboard so mouse click solutions and keyboard short cut solutions don't work.

I want to just tap on a link with my finger and have it open in a new window. Every time. I know I can hold on the link and get a list of options including "open in a new window" but I want to eliminate that step because my fat fingers sometimes select the wrong list item.

Any help?

Firefox for Windows Desktop Cannot Switch Between Tabs

Hi,

Firefox will not let me switch between tabs using the mouse.

I can open new tabs but cannot navigate between them.

I can pin tabs and close tabs by right clicking and selecting from the menu but when I left click a tab to select it nothing happens.

It is not my mouse as this is working fine in other apps and navigating between tabs in chrome works fine.

I tried updating to the latest version of firefox (as at 15/11/22) but this has still not resolved it.

I also cannot get into settings or extensions as when I click on those it opens a new tab but I then cannot navigate to it.

Please can someone help as currently it is completely unusable.

Thanks.

The blocking of mixed content is stopping me from using Ebay. I can't expand photos of items or look at any a additional photos . Most importantly I can't bid. Which is VERY, VERY, VERY frustrating and annoying.

I have followed your help guide as to how to turn off this annoying feature, but they are incorrect!

When I get to the appropriate screen which say 'You are not connected securely...' the tab to turn off blocking protection for mixed content is missing. It doesn't exist! Consequently I can't tun it off and can't bid or look at photos on Ebay.

Please correct this asap please.

Windows 8.1 would not load last Wednesday, so I "refreshed" it using F10; which stated all files and apps would be retained (what a lie.) Most apps were disabled, or removed, and needed to be re-loaded, as well as about 200 updates which needed to be downloaded, and still being downloaded. When re-loading Firefox my previous bookmarks were not retained, although I think may have located them via a Microsoft remedy (Firefox remedies have been fruitless.) They are not not the old Firefox folder (my most recent entry was 2019,) and not in the places Firefox has suggested looking. I will backup my current 5 days worth of bookmarks, when all of the downloads are current, and try to download the Microsoft suggestion. My question is; why are they NOT automatically saved? And if somebody has a remedy for me please send it as I will not do anything with my bookmarks for a few days.

Since yesterday whenever I put a video on youtube or any other site to full screen it does not goto fullscreen, the photo shows what I mean I have already tried doing this and it didn't work Go to about:config and make sure full-screen-api.enabled is true and reset the other full-screen-api settings to default while you are there.

Videos also do goto full screen on Chrome so it must be an issue with Firefix not my laptop

Almost as soon as the most recent Firefox update, 109.0, happened, I began having this half tab showing up on the far left of my tabs bar for some site - https://deal2coupon.com/all-stores/ebay.com.

What the hell is this? Did it come with the update? I've searched all over the internet and all I find are all the top Google search returns are directed to that site as if they are a wonderful site and they will do their best to tell you that's true. Bah! Humbug! I even checked https://reports.adguard.com and all it says is it's not on any black list they monitor. (YET!)

How do I get rid of it? Who do I report it to?

Firefox blocks out some posts with an 'OBJ' box as follows: Eagle lady (Jean Keene) sign from the Homer spit. This is one of my favorite signs in my collection. I’m pretty sure that she was the only person ever to be allowed to feed eagles and probably the last. She started feeding them in the 70s for about 20 years until she passed away. She was a tough, unique woman. She started off as a rodeo daredevil in the 50’s and worked for the Red River Rodeo as a trick rider.  Jean worked with many celebrities, including the likes of Gene Autry also known as the “singing cowboy.” She eventually had to retire from the rodeo, because she got hurt on a horse. She drove semi trucks and opened a dog and cat grooming business before eventually moving to Homer Alaska.

        If anybody else has any peninsula signs from the past, and would like to share please do so, we would love to see them.

WHY? WHY? WHY?

For the love of God, can someone explain who thought it was a good idea to remove the option to sort bookmarks menus by name? Please do not suggest users to open the All bookmarks and using the View > Sort option because it's not permanent, such useless option only applies temporarily while that window is open.

What version must I downgrade to in order to recover the bookmarks sort by name? Because of course the option won't be recovered. Kindly explain who, and why did you decide it was very useful for the end user to delete this option.

I'm having trouble with my laptop battery and my laptop completely died. I got it working again but now Firefox doesn't have my logins for some reason. The Profile folder showed logins.json, logins.json.corrupt, and logins-backup.json. I changed logins.json to logins-old.json and changed logins.json.corrupt to logins.json like I saw in many solutions but that does not work. It just becomes logins.json.corrupt again. I tried the same with Logins-backup.json but still just changed to corrupt. I refreshed firefox but still the same. I made a new profile and copied the file and tried to get it to work there but still changes back to corrupt every time. I'm Windows 8.1 so there is no Previous Versions tab in properties so I can't go back to a previous version of the file. Is there ajny way to fix this and get my passwords back?
