I first downloaded Firefox Syn to my iPhone a couple of years ago and now I have an iPad and I'm trying to set it up for that I remembered why I never managed to set it up on my phone. IT'S IMPOSSIBLE! I just go round and round in this idiotic circle for pairing a device. First it took a long time to just get my iPad to give me the option of entering the numbers from my laptop, for the longest time all I could get it to do was give me another set of numbers to enter on my laptop (useless since that same page on my laptop was giving me numbers to enter on my iPad. Huh?) After I finally managed to get my iPad to allow me to enter the pairing numbers from my laptop, it then asks for the recovery key. THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND! I have no "manage account" option under preferences on my laptop. All I have on my Mac under Firefox/Preferences/Sync is set up or pair a device. When I set up it asks me "create an account" or "have an account". Every time I chose have an account it takes me back to pair a device. I tried "create an account" but when I entered my email address it tells me I already have an account (I have a password as well). I'm just going round and round in circles and this is just the MOST IDIOTIC SET UP EVER. And judging by the hours I've spent trawling all the help forums and myriad postings on this I'm not the only one in this position.

How the hell do I get my recovery key?

How on earth do I get to the "manage accounts" option?

FYI I have the same problem with my iPhone. The only option I have there is "send me instructions" or "I have a sync account". When I select that I have an account it just gives me the 3 sets of numbers to enter on my other device and tells me to select "add a device" on the other device. But on the other device (my Mac) I I can't get past pair a device. There is no add a device option. There is no manage accounts option. Nothing but this endless circular hell that has me wanting to smash something. I'm not dumb, I'm relatively tech savvy, but I'm stumped.

I'm on a Mac OS X, Firefox 27. Both iPhone and iPad are on iOS7. Using Firefox Virtual Browser on the iPad, Firefox Home on the iPhone.

Closing as duplicate please continue with open thread /questions/982984?page=2#answer-527488 ~J99


I'm not even sure why I'm bothering this, as I can already anticipate the answers (i.e. try safe mode, create a new profile, clear cache, etc...), but whenever I try to access a Facebook page, I almost always get a hang and then a script error. I've tried all the "fixes" above and then some including experimenting with add-ons/plugins to see if any of those were the problem, and to no avail. This also happens alot with ANY kind of page that has an embedded Facebook "like" button. That includes A LOT of sites, these days, so I'm constantly getting script errors during my Facebook sessions.

Anyone (regular users) else have this issue and have any creative solutions, or is Firefox simply sucky at properly rendering basically anything that has to do with Facebook? I see that this issues seems to be completely ignored in each "upgrade" of the browser. The only thing that even half-way works is QuickJava, but as I'm sure users of this extension know, that can completely render hyperlinks unusuable, so you're constantly having to switch it on and off during loading of pages.

I really just want this here for documentation purposes.

I noticed here:

http://sessionmanager.mozdev.org/history.html?oldversion=0.8.0.8&newversion=0.8.1.0

that you are changing menus and getting rid of the title bar. I have hunted around on your website, and have not found a clear explanation of what is going on.

So I would like a clear explanation.

At least equally important, I would like to know whether I can retain prior features without change, or whether you're going to alter my user interface when I don't want you to.

Hi, I am not IT savvy, so hope I can explain this well enough.

I use Firefox as my default web browser, but reluctantly feel I need to move away because I cannot resolve a problem I have with Adobe Flash crashing regularly every day.

I have restarted Firefox, but the problem is still there. Same when I restart my laptop.

I have even reset Firefox, following instructions in a thread I found on here. The problem went away for a few days, but is back again. This is so frustrating. Friends tell me to give up on Firefox, like they have, but I'd rather find a solution if I can.

I don't watch videos, so typical sites I have problems with are eBay, Facebook and 'Street View' on Google Maps.

Other info......I am in the UK and my laptop uses Windows 7. I have checked the Firefox Plug-In page, and all my plug-ins are showing as up to date.

Please help.

Vikki

Dozens of people have strongly complained about Yahoo inserting itself in Firefox and hiding itself so it cannot be removed. This has been going on for at least a month.

Why doesn't Mozilla do something to prevent Yahoo from HACKING into Firefox.? It is an obvious attempt to pre-empt people's browser of choice. Surely there is someone in the Mozilla group who can either alter the code to block Yahoo or at least come up with a solution that lets the average user remove the stupid Yahoo software.

Thanks

OS Windows Vista; Firefox 27.0 Suddenly, new tab has a load of big size icons and looks like a copy of MS Windows8. Definately not a look I could ever want. Loads of icons - most I have never used nor visited or visit on a rare basis. so I have no idea where they were selected from. I did not select this options. I have bookmarks and use them. I want the same blank tab to appear. No idea why a new tab should have anything other than blank. Located info to switch this off. There is no option to switch it off - only add more tabs or mess about with layout and theme. so these instructions are not correct or I have located bug of extreme annoyance.

So I attempted to change the about:config as per instructions. browser.newtab.url;about:blank however, this does not fix. I rechecked and it is set as about:blank. So I tried reopening Firefox, but when I select new tab, I still get all the advertising icons.

So what else do I need to fix in about:config to remove absolutely everything to do creating new tabs inbany other way than blank and ready for use.

After upgrading to the new version, 27.0.1, my right-click function to Open link in New Tab stopped working. I cannot open in new window either. When I click the link that I would like to open in new tab or window, the right click window appears, I click on the desired function, and the right click window closes and nothing happens.

I have also noticed that there are many additional functions that now appear on the right-click window, eg.

Play, Pause, Mute, Unmute, etc. Reload image, View Image, View Video, etc. This Frame, View Selection Source, etc.

They could have been there but I do not remember these functions available before. They may have been BUT it may just be the case of not really noticing them because everything worked and now that I can't open new tabs/windows, I now notice them. Not sure if this is related to the issue or not. I have the following extensions running:

ColorZilla 2.6.4.1 Dictionary.com 2.0.0 Firebug 1.8.4 InstantFox 2.8.7

I did disable them to see if they may have been causing the issue but the problem still exists.

Hopefully someone can figure this out because I may need to switch browsers until this gets resolved. Unfortunately not too efficient!

Thanks!

I'm gay. FF, CEO is a bigot ,who financially, supports GOP efforts, to deny freedom and civil rights to Gay Comunity. I always thought FF was about a responsible company with an eye on the future and inclusion? Disappointed, and sadly, about to move on. I cant support injustice. Been a FF user since about 06-07', turned tons of friends on to Mozilla, love it. Sad day, I love products, but time for open minded CEO. Peace

Last night around 8:00 PM all the tabs I was interested in were open. The computer crashed sometime last night, and when I restarted that time I had no wireless connectivity (I have a Dell XPS M1530) and thus never got online, although my computer was functioning. When I later did connect, the "Restore Previous Session" yielded nothing, except a single new homepage window that I opened. Always in the past, I got a "Well this is embarrassing message" and clicking Restore resolved everything. I never got that message, nor opportunity to click Restore this time, ....for the first time ever as long as I've used Firefox. My previous session is now invisible to me, and I don't want to create much more without getting back to where I was.

Thank You!!

Quite possibly related to my continuing saga of how to get FF to sync reliably between my devices (thread: here http://tinyurl.com/k6p3s37), I deleted all the misbehaving icons. That seemed to solve 95% of the problem, at the cost of deleting the bookmarks of course. A couple I was able to rename to some good effect.

Then, suddenly I noticed havoc with the add-on toolbar as well. First, an add-on that had not sync'd was on my laptop, migrating from my desktop. I thought "Great. About time. Maybe sync is actually working well for a change."

I was happy to have the actual add-on sync, but its icon takes up too much space on the laptop Add-on bar, so I deleted the icon for that add-on (You Tube Downloader). And then I saw my laptop browser had also automatically added an icon for g-mail notifier. I deleted that too.

I closed the browser. The next time I came back---both add-ons have their icons right back on the add-on bar mysteriously. Plus, every time I restart the browser now a third icon, Ghostery, tells me it has updated to a new version. Except the new version is the old version so far as I can remember. Nothing's changed. Things tend not to update for real 3 times a day for several days!

No matter how many times I delete the two add-on Icons, they just keep reappearing. Not to mention, Ghostery keeps updating.

I've kinda given up trying to make sense of what FF does in sync. But is there any way to make these add-ons stop reappearing as icons on the laptop add-on bar? Yes, they so appear on my desktop. And if sync is now making it automatic on my laptop, that's a problem. but in the past, I used to be able to control that behavior. If I deleted the laptop icon, it would only affect whether to display it, not affect the desktop icon, or the add-on itself.

Any ideas appreciated.
