I'm reinstalling Windows on my computer after a hardware issue, and I do have a backup of my old data. I was using Firefox Sync, where this "device" was called "Firefox Maison".

When I reinstall firefox on my new computer, how do I make it a continuation of the former "device"/session, rather than it being registered as a new device with the same "Firefox Maison" name ? I sent tabs from another device to "Firefox Maison" while the computer is kaput, and Ideally I would wish these tabs to appear on my new Firefox when the operation is finished - if this particular thing can't be done that's not the most important, but I think it helps understanding what kind of continuation I want to do. The restoration of my (normal) open tabs would be much more important, for example.

I managed to do that when a very similar issue happened to me some months ago, but it was clanky with appdata files, and I feared corrupting my sync session in some way, and/or losing data, so if anyone has a more reliable walkthrough, that would be ideal.

Each new release has new issues.

First I could not access my router and printer because of security risks..the IP address of each was not protected. No way to over ride lockout. What kind of security risk is my router and printer when I need to access to adjust setting?

Now the the last release I co not access some web sites. I see the site and after I sign-on the screen goes blank.

I do not have any trouble with the above with other browsers.

I need to download the helper application to be able to download adobe.

The instructions below are for Firefox 3.0. This version does not match. Please help

To be able to download, add Adobe's site to the list of "allowed sites" in Firefox:

       On the Tools menu, select Options; click the Content icon
       Check the "Block pop-up windows" box, then the Exceptions button
       On the "Allowed Sites - Popup" window, enter www.adobe.com in the Address box and click Allow, then Close.
   On the Tools menu, select Add-ons; click the "Get Extensions" link in the lower right corner of the popup window.
   On the Add-ons page, select Plugins from the menu on the left.
   Click the green Install Now button that appears under the Acrobat Reader header.
   Adobe's Reader page is displayed. Follow the instructions for downloading the correct version.
   A "Software Installation" box is displayed; click Install Now.

On occasion, I come across a web page that offers to send an email if you click on the link eg, I was researching regulations for personal care homes in GA and there was an option to send an email to the administrators to ask them for more information.

So, I click on the link and rather than getting the email address, firefox goes to open the "mail" application on my mac.

Well, I never use that application because it is too slow and bulky. I can't use basic text options like bolding or italics and such. Not to mention, it takes forever to load.

I use GMX for mail and it is accessed through Firefox. It is not an application that "lives" on my computer.

How can I get Firefox to respond to these email buttons on websites by going to GMX?

Thanks, Charles

There is like a long white sheet pop-up that keeps appears on my Desktop on the right center. When I closed the website that I just went through, the pop-up immediately moves fast to the to hide. This is going on every day.

Something else is going on I noticed that when I make some changes in my settings, other changes take place like my email icloud was turned off yesterday. A few days ago an app game from Apple store was moved into my Apple ID, icloud with a check mark.

Yesterday, All the add-ons were disable in safe mode that I had to do a Troubleshooting mode and refresh Firefox to the add-ons back.

I had found this solution to enabling all extension in private mode months ago, and it involves entering code into the console. While it had worked back then, I'm having trouble getting it to work now.

Within the past few days, I've noticed Firefox act buggy and then got the message “The bookmarks and history system will not be functional … ” so I deleted my profile like it said so here. I had backed up all my extension settings beforehand, but it would be more convenient to backup and import them all at once with one or a few clicks.

I can't open any youtube shorts, because I get redirected to anti-war videos, or some random videos that got a million views (which I'm guessing they got from other victims of this malware).

I've disabled all extensions and even plugins, restarted Firefox, but the problem persists.

I have an anti-virus installed (Kaspersky), so I'm at a loss of what this could be.

Is there any way to trace the source of the redirect?

I seem to have that bug that was fixed a few updates ago where videos won't play. I have the latest version of Firefox. For example, YouTube will load and the page, progress bar and even subtitles will show, but the video will just have the spinning circle. I have tried videos on other websites (Facebook, Tumblr) and they won't play either.

I've uninstalled/reinstalled Firefox, refreshed Firefox, disabled all add-ons, allowed autoplay of videos/audio but nothing works. The videos all work on Chrome and Edge.

Cannot select a message, cannot reply or forward, cannot go back to messages clicking the "back" arrow, cannot select the settings button. Yahoo mail works correctly in Chrome however. How to fix??

This should sound familiar.... It's copied from a 2 year old thread on the FF boards. I cleared the cache and flushed all my cookies. I removed my recently added addon (Malware Bytes). Problem still there.
