I have an old XP machine and have just built a brand new windows 7 machine. I need to move my history information over to the new PC. I have found the instructions for moving my bookmarks, but not for moving my browsing history. I rely on my history for finding quite a few of the sites I visit regularly rather than cluttering up my system with more bookmarks and icons.

How do I save my history and get it onto my new machine. I have and external HD and cds I can use for this.

I have some demo pages for a plugin on github. Oddly, I can't get the favicon to show up in Firefox (try the simple demo page). They show up in webkit browsers and IE without any problems. The effected pages are "Main", "Simple", "Expand", "Video" and "FX".

Even more strange is that only one demo page ("CSS3") shows the favicon on the tab and when saved as a bookmark, but none of the other pages will.

Ever since I updated to 14.0.1 I have been having problems with this. As of right now, even this website is currently being forced https. My friend is also having the exact same problem as me, so it isn't just a single problem here. (However it could be two)

Can anyone help me here? Happens on pretty much all websites, cannot put just one site.

OK, I had to reinstall Firefox, and now, every time I try searching off URL bar, Bing comes as default search engine. I have read this: Bing is added to the search engines that you can use for searching via the search bar on the Navigation Toolbar. If Bing is selected then you can choose another search engine by clicking the search engines icon. Open Manage Search Engines and click "Restore defaults" is some are missing or do a search on the Mycroft site.

See also:

   Removing the Search Helper Extension and Bing Bar 

You can open the about:config page via the location bar and do a search for bing via the Filter at the top of that page. You can reset all bing related prefs via the right-click context menu to their default values.

I have removed Bing from search engines list. 5 times. Clicking "restore defaults" actually brings Bing back into list. I have modified Bing to Google via "about:config". Same difference - Bing stubbornly defaults as search engine when searching from URL bar.

Suggestions?

I am using Mac OS X Version 10.7.4. I am also running Firefox version 14.0.1. I am prompted to update to version 15, but when trying to update, the updating window hangs up for hours and never gets past "connecting to server." I have tried to install version 15 and trash my last version however I get another pop-up box that states something like "cannot complete due to some items being skipped." I followed the directions to troubleshoot (File > Get Info, then make sure all items are unlocked) but this still doesn't solve my problem. Can anyone offer some advice? Please?

OK. I really liked the new-tab page Firefox came up with, then my brother downloaded Yahoo crap and I uninstalled it. The problem I have is that whenever I open a new tab, it still opens a yahoo search page. I looked everywhere online for information to get my new-tab page back, but all I found was how to get rid of it.

I'm not a computer person, so when they say 'open Firefox and type ___________.' I have no idea what they are talking about. To top it off, there is no little box in the upper right corner to click like all the help sites say. It's just a regular yahoo search page, and it's driving me nuts. I've looked about the web all day off and on for this. At this point, I'd be happy with figuring out how to get a blank page, but I don't know how to get to where I'm suppose to type 'about:blank' to do it.

I tried uninstalling Firefox and then installing it again too, thinking that it might reset things. It didn't. I still see yahoo. I hope you can help. I really miss my new-tab page.

Hi. I'm using Firefox 14.0.1, and recently developed an issue that is extremely frustrating. Two particular websites which I visit often are behaving irregularly. In the first case, on Facebook, when I login and my main page loads, the icons in the top left (friends, messages, and notifications) are not "clickable," that is to say that clicking on them no longer brings up the windowpane that corresponds with them. On another website, Battlelog.com, certain images do not load and instead are replaced with oversized text. I have tried clearing my cache and history in Firefox, turning on and off extensions one by one, running in safe mode, etc. but none of these solutions have helped.

I finally tried running Firefox in private browsing mode. These websites now work perfectly. I cannot explain it, as the URLs for each are identical. If there is anyone who could offer advice on settings or changes I could make so that Firefox will work properly with these sites in default browsing mode, it would be most greatly appreciated.

I've seen quite a few threads about this on here, and I'm now wondering if this actually ought to be reported as a bug...

I've always liked Firefox's better privacy options compared to other browsers, but this particular issue kind of renders them useless.

If I go to Tools>Clear Recent History>Everything (with ALL boxes checked) this does not have any effect whatsoever on the list of recently closed tabs & windows.

ie, If I then go to History>Recently Closed Tabs> all the previous sites I have visited are still there, despite having cleared "everything" from history.

Other threads I've seen on this topic, replies often suggest fiddling with settings in about:config or deleting/renaming sessionstore files...

Does anyone know of a more straightforward way to *actually* clear all browsing history?

Having an option to clear everything from the history is pretty useless if the next person using the computer can simply look at the 'recently closed windows' list and immediately see the sites you've been reading..
