I have been unable to login to Pinterest for a number of weeks and unfortunately am unable to determine what changed since the last successful login. Upon entering credentials into the login form and hitting submit, the page reloads to the main index page. The account itself works with other browsers so it is a Firefox issue. All add-ons have been disabled and the entire process as described in "Fix login issues on websites that require a username and password" has been performed to no avail.

(Using Firefox 32.0.2)

My user profile on my old laptop became corrupted and I cannot log into it using my regular (admin) account. I would like to add and merge the old firefox bookmarks to another laptop, which already has existing bookmarks. I cannot simply copy and paste the profile folder as this would overwrite my existing bookmarks and settings. Unfortunately I did not set up the Sync feature on that browser.

How can I download a file inside a link without right-clicking it ("save target as")?

Hi there! Does anyone know if there's any way I can download a file hosted on a link (e.g., www.ff.org/test.pdf ) without going to config and changing my preferences? I want FF to keep opening media (like pdf and mp3) on the tab when I clik on it, as a general rule. But sometimes I want to be able to download a file, and I can't right click it because all I have is the adress someone gave me. If I type that adress and hit enter, FF will open the file in a tab.

Is there any command I can pass, say, on the adress bar that will make me download the file instead of opening it in a FF tab (like download:www.ff.org/test.pdf)? Will I always have to change my preferences to be able to download a file instead of opening it when I type the link on the adress bar?

Thanks!

I just downloaded/installed Firefox today to test web design for a class. This is not an upgrade but a clean install of 32.0.2. I'm running Win7 32-bit (6.1SP1)

I can not see any video in Firefox, though the files' audio routinely plays just fine. I have tested with files generated by me, and test files from the following sites:

http://camendesign.com/code/video_for_everybody/test.html http://www.htmlandcssbook.com/code-samples/chapter-09/example.html

The player controls come up, a grey box for the video player area comes up with a play button in it, but when I push play, there is just blank/white space, and the audio. I have tested both with the VLC plugin (2.1.3.0) and without - it makes no difference. All videos play just fine for me using IE and Chrome.

Any suggestions on why I'm the only person I know who can't view these videos in FF?

The same thing happends with 30, 32 and 32 versions.

Some time ago I found a solution in internet (the solution make me do things in about:config) and that new configuration works very well (in my desktop computer)... Now I dont remember which changes I made and i can´t find the same solution to apply in my notebook.

So... in my Notebook Gmail doesn´t work with FireFox... and in my desktop, works fine. My Notebook is more powerfull than my desktop machine.

I try other solutions suggested in Firefox Forums but the issue continues... (Factory Reset, Re-install, Javascript not enabled... etc etc) Nothing work...

So in my Notebook I use Firefox (browser that I love and i been using from version 2 or 3) and Google Chrome (Browser that I DON´T LOVE AT ALL) for Gmail

Thanks in advance for any help

ESPN radio streaming broadcast loads fine and plays fine for only 1-2 minutes, then stops playing audio with no error messages or warnings, tried on other computer with chrome and it plays without quitting. Youtube and other streaming sites work properly with my computer and FF in current configuration, but espn is the only one that gets me through boring mornings! All plugins, add-ons and FF are up to date, I tried disabling them and testing but problem still occurs- thank you

We set up restrictions on our computers to block adult sites. However, it is blocking more than adult sites. When I click "white-list" a certain site, it asks for a password. I cannot remember the password, how do I reset it? It is NOT the Firefox master password, we don't have one of those set. This is just a little box that pops up when I try to allow a site, and says "This page is unavailable due to policy restrictions."

Since the update to FF 32.0.2 on my Mac the mouse starts flickering when moving over the screen. It seems as if this flickering is related to the underlaying HTML Structure. It occurs on all websites, so no specific site related issue is detected. Until the update to 32.0.2 (this morning) no flickering occured.

I use FF for lots of things, often many tabs, etc. I picked up cookie clicker a month or so ago. I have always left CC running overnight without any problems until FF updated to version 32.0.2 and now I come back in the morning to find it has crashed.

Most recent crash reports:

bp-977c17bd-f1fe-4a8a-98e3-773682140919 9/19/14 7:21 AM bp-256c08cf-0725-4200-ba1a-fe2b62140918 9/18/14 7:55 AM

I use very few add-on's, same theme I have had for many years, nothing else has changed other than the FF version that I know of.

Any help is appreciated!

Full disclaimer: yes, I know the perils of running my computer all night. Given I always did this before upgrading the FF version, I'm only concerned right now with why these crashes started after that upgrade. Thanks!!!

I have recently installed Mozilla Firefox Version 32.0.2.5373 and Adobe Flash Player Version 10.3 r183, yet when I attempt to screen audio-visual presentations hosted by PBS or its local affiliate the result is repeatedly the same: "Error loading skin: Crossdomain loading denied." Those same files play just fine with Google Chrome Version 37.0.2062.120 m, which leads me to believe you've something which needs fixing. When will this be accomplished?
