I'm running Firefox 35.0.1 on Windows 8.1 and when I start it up it takes a while to load my home page, Google.com. I've set the home page link to just google.com and with the default extensions it adds when the page loads.

I've changed the home page to github to see if that loads faster and it does. Also, I've checked google.com on Chrome just to make sure it wasn't Google's server. Other sites are running fine and Google will load quickly if I hit the home page after going to another site. I disabled extensions just to see it that was causing the issue as well.

For many years I'm using Firefox on several versions of Mac OS X. Due to compatibility reasons I have to keep the latest 3.6.28 and I would like to use the latest version.

Until version 35.0.1 there was not a problem at all to have multiple versions installed. The problem started with 36.x and also remains with the very latest 38.0.

Problem: all booksmarks disappear when switching between versions. Browser history also disappears. How to reproduce the problem: I'm launching the old version 3.x, all booksmarks are there. Then I'm shutting down 3.x. Then I'm launching the latest version 36.x or 37.x or 38.x and all booksmarks are still there. Then I'm shutting down this version. Back to 3.x all bookmarks are gone. In any FF version.

I need to recover the Firefox folder in the Application Folder to get back to the 35.0.1.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Best Wishes from Germany,

Boris

Firefox is very slow when using Facebook and most of the time it can open 2-3 posts only in the 'Newsfeed'instead of opening a lot more.

Nowadays when I log into Facebook through Firefox, it opens only 2 or 3 posts of the News Feed (it is happening very frequently but not always). As far as I can remember, I never experienced any such problem in the past, except rare and occasional crashes which were solved instantly. I am facing this problem since 5-6 months.

Whenever I face such problem with Firefox I log into Facebook through Google Chrome to check whether my internet connection is working properly and have found no such problem with Google Chrome. I have also checked to see whether this problem is caused by hidden updating of some apps or automatic scanning by antivirus but found none. I have also tried 'Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings' and uninstalling and installing again but the problem was not solved. Any solutions, please?

How can I tell when I'm in a private browsing session - Firefox 35.0.1

When I open a private browsing window in Firefox v 35.0.1, there are no indicators that I'm actually in a private browsing window. In my previous version of Firefox, when using the "New Private Window" command, a new window would pop open that stated in the body: "You are currently browsing in private mode", or something to that effect. It would also display a purple mask in the upper right hand portion of the window near the maximize/minimize/close icons.

Now when I try to open a private window in FF 35, it opens a window that looks identical to the standard FireFox window, with nothing to indicate that i am browsing in private mode. What is happening?

I have attached a screenshot of the top portion of my browsing window while supposedly in a Private Window.

I have a basic html form embedded in a Wordpress footer widget to collect email addresses and I can place the cursor in the input field (there is only one input field) but I cannot see what I'm typing. If I enter an invalid email address (without being able to see what I'm typing) and hit the submit button I can see on the error page (since a valid email address is required) what I originally typed. The URL is askdrkyle.com and the form is on the left hand side of the footer.

I do not have this problem in any other browser.

Thanks!

I updated Firefox yesterday. Now I can't load Calendar - from a bookmark, nor from the Apps link.

Here is what I get. I've ensured cookies are abled.

The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

I have developed a problem where by every time I go to certain web sites I am asked to turn on Javascript in my browser in order to continue viewing the page correctly. Whilst trying to find an answer to this problem I have discovered it needs to say under about:config "Javascript enabled" - default - true, but mine says default - boolean - true. Does anyone know if this is right and can anyone tell me what the correct settings should be so that I don't get the same statement on pages that really need Javascript ? Thank you.

I am using an extension called Black YouTube Theme (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/black-youtube-theme/). Currently Whenever I start Firefox using restore session from last time. For any YouTube links I have open it pops open a little JavaScript Application box, one per link, which returns "Error: document.domain is null". That is the only problem I have, so I was wondering does anyone know how to disable JavaScript error messages using about:config?

This has been happening for over 48 hours.

Can this site be blocked by Firefox before triggering the antivirus report?
