I set up Firefox sync two days ago. Opened my Iphone today & it went to sync screen and asked to sync with my Mac laptop computer. I proceeded, assuming it was part of set up, although I had done that step two day ago. After my phone read the QR code, my computer screen refreshed and said, essentially, "you are now syncing with Oxnard, Kalifornia" etc. I am located in the Oxnard area, but was alarmed at the misspelling of California with a "K". Is this a hack and should I remove sync? Typo? Anyone else have this issue? Would greatly appreciate any advice you have - thanks!

i uninstalled GOGGLE tonight because, I HATE GOOGLE for several reasons. BUT since the uninstall, they are blocking not sites but CONTENT. I do a search and the content is on lots of URLS. BUT GOOGLE INTERCEPTS THE SITE, HIJACKS Firefox AND SAYS: GOOGLE 404. That’s an error. The requested URL [inappropriate link] was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

i KNOW its a lie as the URL/SITE comes up, I SEE THE CONTENT then GOOGLE "KNOCKS IT DOWN AND SAYS: GOOGLE 404. That’s an error. The requested URL [inappropriate link] was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

BUT IT DID IN FACT "FIND" IT, I SAW IT FOR A BRIEF MOMENT.

ANYONE?

I just switched from Chrome to Firefox a few days ago. Today when I restarted my laptop and opened Firefox, my browsing profiles, preferences, extensions, about:config settings, etc have been deleted. I'd like to use Firefox as my primary browser, but I have no idea how this happened and no way of knowing that it won't happen again. Is there a way to restore all this so I don't have to waste my time setting it up only to (who knows!) have it deleted by surprise again?

Having long been puzzled by what Firefox considers to be my location, I have tried to find out how to set or change it. I followed all leads that seemed promising. the most direct lead was through the Menu (three bars in my PC-based Firefox). It does not contain the Settings option, nor any kind of 'More' option. I even used the about:config lead simply to find it is enabled. All I know is that Firefox holds a Location other than what I would want to to. But I simply cannot find a way to identify where its held; so I can change it.

Given how straight forward this need is I am puzzled on how hard it is to find out how to change it. Can someone help, other than by repeating the common instructions for using the Menu? I attach my list in case it helps.

Some ads are being blocked in Firefox, but for the life of me, I cannot find where I might have an ad blocker turned on in Firefox or installed as a plug-in or extension. Chrome displays the ads correctly. Example site is www.milesawaygrandparenting.com. There are three ads at the bottom of most pages which display in Chrome but not (for me, anyway) in Firefox.

Where might I look or troubleshoot to find out where the ads are being blocked? I have McAfee Total Protection installed, and Privacy Badger also.

I can't delete autocomplete entries in any way. Clearing the complete form and search history does nothing, and using down-arrow to select entries in form blanks, and hitting DELETE, SHIFT+DELETE, CTRL+DELETE all do nothing, and while CTRL+SHIFT+DELETE will pop up the "Clear History" pane, it still does nothing when I select it to delete both form/search entries and cache.

I have Firefox set to not remember form or search history, and this has gone far beyond annoying. It's not an addon interfering, either, because I have tried it in Firefox Safe Mode (all addons disabled) as well, with no change.

At the moment I have a triple boot machine. Linux running FF, V56, on a hard disk, Linux running FF, V67.0.4, on an SSD and Win10 running FF, V67.0.4, on an SSD. The reason for three is that I'm transferring the Linux on hard disk to Linux on SSD. Going forward it will just be the two SSD installs.

There is a single profile that resides on the Win10 SSD that the Linux installs can see, via mounting the Win10 partition. Up until recently, V56 of Firefox was working fine, except for the usual bugbears of huge memory usage etc. Now with some free time, I've decided to finish off the hard disk -> SSD transition. I now have a problem with PW's being "lost". Bear in mind all three installs are seeing the same ONE profile.

Linux - V57 can read/display the passwords correctly and log me into sites. Win10 - V64 can read/display the passwords correctly and log me into sites. Linux - V64 CAN NOT display the passwords hence can't log me into sites.

Everything else comes across fine. All of my bookmarks are there, under all three boots. The same cookies are there under all three boots. Just the Linux V64 can't seem to find the passwords. There is one file that has the appendage "corrupt" and that is "content-prefs.sqlite.corrupt". I have cleared the cache multiple times.

   Any thoughts on what is wrong?

My operating system is Windows Professional 64bit. When I scroll on a web page the page will advance and than freeze or pause and and after a few seconds will advance again. Plus, there is a delay when I click on something. This happens in safe mode as well. I have tried all the suggested fixes on the help and community pages with no success. I have even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. Any other suggestions or recommendations.

Firefox will not remember my logon info for only one website. I called and spoke to the person in charge of their website and said Firefox works okay for them when logging onto their website but I don't know for sure if it is the latest version, which I have. There is no way that I can turn off the auto logon feature in Firefox for one website.

What can be done to resolve this problem?

Thanks

Only Example at hand is behind a login :( (https://kundencenter.goneo.de/index.php?akt=emaildomain) I tried to switch the default firefox themes default/dark/light and tried various system themes but nothing changes. Changing the entry "Override the colors specified by the page with your selections above" under "Preferences->Color" does change it but now all sites look bad. All threads i found trough google which seem to address this problem seem to be really old or point to wrong solutions like editing "widget.content.gtk-theme-override" which i cant find in "about:config". Can someone please help me fix this?

I'm working on my sister's Win10 laptop. I added the recent version of FireFox: 67.0.4 (64-bit). I can open FireFox; no problem. I can open multiple tabs; no problem. However, if I attempt to open a second browser session, I can briefly see the silhouette of a second FireFox icon and then that second FireFox icon quickly disappears; also no second browser session opens. I've painfully made many changes to Win10; mostly ferreting out unnecessary MS Bloatware. Twice through this process FireFox was able to have more than one browser session open. This brief success is gone after the next reboot.

FireFox is whitelisted in Popupblocker.
