Running WinXP PRO v2002 SP3 Firefox v37.0.2 I have a ton of bookmark folders and bookmarks. I can export to bookmarks.html on desktop that will load to a browser window. I want to completely remove from registry Firefox v37.0.2 and start afresh with v39.0. To test, I deleted a bookmarks folder with a few bookmarks in it. The importing html process did not restore the deleted folder. Checking the saved bookmarks.html for the missing folder showed there were seven instances of the folder along with their bookmark entries. Should there only be one instance of the folder and its' bookmarks? I verified this by checking other browser window bookmark folders and each showed seven instances in the bookmarks.html along with their bookmark entries.
The reason for totally removing v37.0.2… sometime after v35.0 a window resizing problem appeared. The popup windows for bookmark folder Properties and bookmark Properties could not be resized. When you cursor over the sides or corners, the adjustment arrows do not appear. The popup window is two monitor lengths in width and a little awkward in getting it to be saved so the left hand side is visible. Carriage return will extend height and can be saved.
If I remove Firefox from my computers' registry and re-establish v39.0, will I be able to replace my bookmarks. Maybe not. I would have to replace them manually from the bookmarks.html and that would take time to do.
Any solutions? Was this a bug or is it relevant to be still using WinXP PRO SP3?

Since few weeks, I have a lot of troubles using Firefox that can crash more than 10 times a day in various occasions.
Safe mode or not doesn't change the problem: it will crash no matter hard I try.
The last time it crashed occurred while I was trying to open a crash report...
The latest crash report is bp-31f38799-17bb-4117-87bb-59f6b2150508
Hotmail/Outlook Sent email message does not contain the same content when viewed in Firefox and Safari browsers.

Okay, I've got a doozy for you. I was working with my Hotmail/Outlook web-based email while using Firefox today on my desktop Mac with OS 10.6.8, and I kept getting an intermittent message at the top of my email window, "We can't connect to Outlook right now. Please try again later." These messages usually appear once every so often and are no big deal, albeit not with the frequency that they appeared today.
I eventually completed my email and went to print my Sent message, and noticed that the content of the Sent message was not accurate. Paragraphs were missing and the entire message was goofed up. Luckily I had copied my message to the clipboard before sending it, so I pasted my message content into a new email and resent it to the recipient. The same thing happened again! When I viewed the second Sent message, the body of the message was identical to the prior goofed up Sent message.
I opened up my Safari browser and went to the Sent messages folder and located those same two Sent messages to see if the issue was there. Both Sent messages were 100% accurate and correct when viewed in Safari. So I returned to Firefox, cleared everything in the history (the cache, cookies, saved searches, download history, etc.)m and shut Firefox down and reopened it. When I returned to my email and checked my Sent messages, the same incorrect Sent messages were still present in my Sent messages folder.
Then I went to my iPhone to check on the appearance of my Sent messages there, and everything was correct. I forwarded one of my Sent messages from the phone to my email address, and returned to Firefox on my desktop to see how it looked as a new message. The email was 100% correct when I viewed it within the Inbox, however, once I moved it into the Sent Messages folder and opened it up, the content magically converted to the same goofed up message as the prior sent messages! Now that is bizarre! What on earth??? So then I moved the converted goofy message back to my Inbox to see if it stayed messed up or reverted back to the correct original version, but unfortunately it stayed all goofed up.
Can anyone explain what is going on here? And how do I fix this? What would cause Firefox to retain these incorrect Sent messages, while the correct versions appear in Safari on my desktop and iPhone? Could it have something to do with the "We can't connect to Outlook" message that I kept getting intermittently when I was working on my email in Firefox? Even more perplexing, why would FF take the forwarded accurate message from my phone, which appeared normal and correct in my Inbox, and convert it to the messed up version after I moved it to the Sent messages folder? Is there a persistent corruption affecting my Sent messages folder in Firefox, which isn't getting fixed with the self-help measures I attempted?
Web-based email should be the same no matter what browser you use to access your email, so this is very odd indeed. What do I have to do to fix this? I don't use Safari at all. Firefox is my default browser. If my Sent message appears wrong in Firefox that will cause me future problems, especially if I need to forward the Sent message to another party. Thank you.
After proper closure of versions 37.0.1 and 37.0.2, I get a Crash Report Request which Fails (Trying to Consolidate threads)

I see several threads about this which aren't actually solved (even though some are marked as such). This is really a three-pronged problem. It seems that since the 37.0.1 update, the old memory hog (worse than usual) problem (issue #1) is back, and therefore after a short while, to gain back some speed, you must close Firefox. Problem is, no matter what platform (I am running Windows XP Pro with the very last updates available), the system does not actually see it as closed (Issue #2) (Firefox still active in Task Manager Processes - although NOT in Applications) or if it does, you get an erroneous Crash Report window (issue #2a). When you fill in the Crash Report information, and click Quit, the report does NOT actually send and I bet most aren't noticing this as it took me many times, you get a small message saying Failed (issue #3). Actually a fourth prong would be that although Mozilla and Firefox are free/open-platform, whatever, it seems like whenever there is an update, somehow, lines of code are lost, rewritten, or otherwise compromised. Since it is free, and better than IE, it is one of the instances (of which there are way too many these days) where I don't mind too much Beta-testing (something I used to be paid for). However, I should be Beta-testing the New change/addition, it REALLY should not bring us back 8 versions or create new problems.

I will customize the add-on icons on the toolbars (3) but when I close FF 37.0.2 and reopen it the icons are in different places or gone completely. One of the reasons I love Firefox is all the add-ons enable me to do so many things so easily. I spend several hours each day on the net working many different projects and trying to do what I do without the add-ons easily accessible things are more difficult. Please advise.
