Just moved from win 7 to win11. Pity me. Used sync prior to using FF on 11. Sites I remained signed into with 7 now have to be signed in every time with win11. Even if Firefox isn't closed between visits. ex: Youtube, forum sites, etc. I don't know if this is FF or win11 doing it. I didn't change any settings in FF on 11. Any help or direction appreciated.

Since today, Firefox is no longer loading the previous settings. Every time I open it up, it opens as it was newly installed.

I already did the following: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1226076 To no avail.

What changed? I didn't change anything in my computer for this to start.

Thanks for any help.

I run Firefox on two windows machines, with identical settings and extensions - I regularly sync across them, and have all my passwords saved to a local file, just in case. Recently, one machine (the only one with Win11) has begun disconnecting me from Mozilla every time I close Firefox, and wiping the saved passwords. I have to sign in to Mozilla and import all the passwords every time i reopen Firefox. I have tried all the refresh, reinstall options and nothing seems to fix it. Any ideas what's going on and how to fix?

Firefox Sync - about:config settings not applied on other devices

I've just created a Mozilla account so that I can sync my customised about:config settings between devices but I'm struggling to get it working. For each setting I have customised that isn't on the default whitelist, I have created a new boolean setting as follows:

'services.sync.prefs.sync.xyz' where xyz is the setting I have customised.

Each of these newly created boolean settings is set to 'true'.

When I 'sign in and sync' on a new device and check about:config, the values of these custom settings is not changed from the default.

Have I missed something in my understanding of the process?

Any advice will be appreciated.

How do I prevent Firefox/duckduckgo from instead of opening a newspaper site (eg: www.nytimes.com), INSTEAD opening the site with "feed" in front of it (eg: feed://www.nytimes.com)?

The web browser does this all the time, and I almost never want the site with "feed:" in front of it.

Advice on how to change the settings to prevent this would be welcome. I suspect this happened with an update but ever since has been continuous.

Only happens on my laptop, not on my iPhone. I have an Apple M1 chip MacBookPro, running MacOS Sonoma 14.5. My Firefox browser is the latest version.

I have Picture in Picture disabled on Firefox. For some unknown reason, sometimes when watching youtube videos in fullscreen the video pops out of the screen and goes to a lower right window. This window has no controls, no title and the video stays black and nothing plays anymore. If I right click on it I have the option of "showing controls". Why is this happening? Am I issuing some weird mouse or keyboard command? How the HECK do I disable this, since I don't want, ever, to see any videos on a floating window, like ever at all? May I remind you that I disabled PIP in the beginning?

Please help.
