All that the it says is "Error moving file: Permission denied". I am an administrator, so how cannot have permission. If it matters, my computer runs Linux.

many times a day, many times an hour, popup ads about updating firefox interrupt my screen viewing. one is very small in the lower right corner; the other covers nearly the whole screen. how can i stop these, or at least get them down to once a day instead of several times an hour? they are extremely annoying. i have already clicked "block popup ads" but these are from firefox itself.

Hi,

Recently Firefox has stopped displaying Youtube comments and notifications. Comments stay as "Loading" and the notification box is empty: http://i.imgur.com/nvI3Ap3.png It works fine in Chrome is it is not a problem with Youtube, I have tried refreshing Firefox, and using safemode so I know it is not a problem with a plugin. If you could help me it'd be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

I re-image my computer every 4-6 months and often times I forget to backup FF bookmarks because it's the only thing I haven't been able to figure out how to change its location. I have My doc, pics, IE bookmarks and other similar items stored on a separate partition so they're not lost by the re-mage process. How do I accomplish this with FF?

When Firefox had the Tools->Options in a dialog, it always used to remember the last opened preferences tab and open that when Options was opened. For example, if I used Options->Security and closed the dialog, it would remember it and open to Options->Security when I opened Tools->Options the next time. But after the move to a new browser tab holding the preferences, it always opens the General options tab and does not remember the last used preferences tab. Is there a way to have it open the last used preferences tab (like Advanced or Privacy) without using a bookmark? I couldn't find any about:config options for this.

I hide the bookmark toolbar and other toolbars to maximize screen space. Plus, this looks like a feature removal and using bookmarks seems like a (dirty) workaround to me.

Thanks.

Late last night, after doing some forum reading, went to re-position Firefox window and discovered the mouse could not perform the task. It just doesn't work. I've re-installed Firefox several times; rebooted the pc a few times; run SFC /scannow and all that. However, this problem remains, and it is only in Firefox that this problem resides. Safari and Opera, my other browsers, work just fine with no hint of a mouse problem. Nothing was changed, either, as far as Firefox browser is concerned; it just worked fine and then it stopped working fine, for not apparent reason.

A full page opened up while I was on Firefox saying Critical update download. I saved it but when I went to open it to download another box opened stating this download was not verified and publisher not not known. So I was afraid to use it. How can I tell if this is truly Foxfire. It is also an executive file.
