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.

This has worked until recently.....

I switch on the PC - Windows 10 +Firefox.......... I enter a 4-number ID code, press Enter and my Desktop is displayed It is then up to me to click on the Globe on the bottom status line then my home page opens - the BBC website

What used to happen and which I wish to restore is.......... I enter a 4-number code, press Enter and my Desktop is displayed, then, without me doing anything, the screen displays the BBC website - https://www.bbc.com/news - automatically.

Can't find out how to do this again - can you help please?

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.

There are 32 shortcuts on my home screen - 4 rows of 8 each. However, I accidentally "dismissed" one shortcut - now there are 31 total. I cannot figure out how to restore a shortcut. Is the solution in about:config (browser.newtabpage.pinned)?

Hello,

I need help understanding why my mozilla.cfg file is not working. I have read the steps on how to add the file and where its located with autoconfig.js file as well. My current situation is that the mozilla.cfg is in the MozillaFirefox root directory where the EXE lives as it states in your directions. My autoconfig.js file is in the defaults\pref folder where the channel-pref.js file lives. This is how its setup but it's still not applying my mozilla.cfg file. Can I please get assistance on why this is not functioning in any way. Thanks

Starting with v128 or so, there is a nag at the top of the browser window about starting Firefox automatically on boot.

It only appeared a couple of times so far, but I'd still like to know if there a setting to prevent this nag from ever appearing again?
