I run Mac OS 10.8.2 and Firefox 16.0.2

I run into situations where Firefox is writing huge quantities of data to my hard drive. The CPU utilization isn't significant (25% or less), but the Disk Activity is maxed for quite some time (up to a minute), which results in non-responsiveness of all applications.

Running OSX 10.8.3 on a late 2012 27" iMac. For some reason FF will not load the Quicktime plugin for a newly created user. It fails on two different iMacs and both OSX 10.8.3 and OSX 10.7.5. It does load the plugin for users that were created before FF 21.0 was installed. A very strange problem.

This is for a Mac running OSX 10.8 using private browsing with no exceptions of any kind for any site..

I use a Craigslist bookmark for, say  Pittsburgh. I then switch inside CL to, say,  Los Angeles CL. I then close FF.
   

I restart FF and using my Craigslist bookmark for Pittsburgh I log in to CL again.

This is when the problem starts: Little Snitch (a program that alerts you to outgoing internet connections) asks for permission to log in the the Los Angeles site that I logged out from and restarted FF. SO CL KNOWS MY LAST VISITED CL SITE after I shut down FF

    How is this happening and how can I stop it? And why does private browsing let it happen?

HOW TO BLOCK SITES & RESTORE THE LIST I HAD ACCRUED THAT "SOMEONE" DELETED FOR ME - I SUSPECT FIREFOX

Changes are being Made to my Firefox Preferences - Latest is my list of Blocked Sites got Erased and Now there is no block key

I don't want to add any sites to ALLOW, its already set to do that.

I strongly suspect that Firefox is responsible for my vanished long-collected lists of sites that are a total pain because there is no longer a way to BLOCK SITES.

Sites keep popping up and so I want to add them LIKE I USED TO DO but PRESTO - option is gone.

HOW CONVENIENT that just after somebody deleted my list of undesirable nuisance sites FIREFOX also has changed/hidden any ability to ADD BLOCK SITES

I am really ticked because I have read tech articles that talk about Firefox implementing or already installing updates on their own accord. If I ever get full proof of that me and firefox are gone.

I WANT THE ABILITY TO BLOCK SITES - what difference does it make to Firefox if I block annoying sites unless they are becoming the enemy.

I am trying to migrate from Safari. However, one of THE most important features that I simply can't do without, is the one click "Download Linked File" right click contextual menu item. This together with the auto-rename file action if a name conflict exists within the downloads folder, to which you are saving the file.

Is there a way to do this in FF? All I can locate is"Save Link As" and then you have to either click to save or manually rename the file if there is a conflict. This is a real pain - I am happy to allow duplicate filenames for certain files.

Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction - needs to be an absolute one click solution from contextual menu via an add on or something.

Thanks

I updated my desktop Firefox to version 23.0 yesterday and my two-finger swipe gestures stopped working. For a long time I have set in About:Config to browser.gesture.swipe.left -> Browser:PrevTab and browser.gesture.swipe.right -> Browser:NextTab. Until version 22 there was no problem. I checked some different settings and found out that with default values to go back and forward in history it works correctly. I have FireGestures installed (which may affect the gestures) but I tried to uninstall/disable and the problem was still happening. Thank you for any help

Netflix videos don't seem to play correctly. I'm using a clean installation of Firefox 25 and Silverlight has been reinstalled and is working. However, every time I try to play a movie on Netflix it plays back choppy. I'm running on a late 2008 15 MacBook Pro hooked up to an external monitor. I'm visually impaired so unhooking the monitor is not an option, and the videos play just fine in Safari, Chrome, and Opera.

Thanks for any help, Scott

www.google.com uses an invalid security certificate.

Certificate is only valid for the following names: *.suddenlink.net

Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain

After inspecting the certificate, issuer common name was DigiCert SHA2 High Assurance Server CA.

How can I fix this problem and why did it appear? I haven't changed computers, done all updates, and nothing is different in general. Firefox was working just fine up until a few hours ago.

Thanks!

I deleted my history and now my tabs page is empty. It is not just that the thumbnails are missing, there are no suggested websites filling in the empty spaces. It is like somehow when I cleared my history it stopped adding new history at least in the tabs page. Can I get it to turn that function back on?

I work with multiple windows, and sometimes, in a particular window, I open too many tabs that I later want to split into two groups. I can do that rather easily by moving some of the tabs to a new tab group, but now both groups are still stuck in the same window and I can't save them separately with TabMixPlus. How do I pull out the tabs of a tab group to a new window?

Google somehow gets auto-loaded when I open a new tab in Firefox. I tried:

1) Reset homepage to blank page 2) Reset homepage to another website 3) Check "don't load tabs until I select"

None of this works. It's so very annoying that Google gets loaded automatically whereas I simply want a blank page.

I NEED Java for my job, I have no choice. Since Apple's Java update early last year which messed everything up I've had to use Firefox.

I have the most current update according to Oracle, Java 7, Update 11. I was working this morning just fine and then all of the sudden Firefox tells me it's unsafe and presents a box to Activate or not. I clicked Activate. Nope. I go to the Add-ons Manger which tells me my plug in is known to be vulnerable. Nothing I do will allow me to activate Java in Firefox.

Dear Mozilla folks, for this work I use a Mac that has nothing else on it. If it get's hacked, I'll restore it and start over, I'll take responsibility for that. There are no further updates I can apply and I surely cannot wait until Oracle decides to patch it again. Come on!

I would like to choose an icon (such as the old firefox "blue dot" icon) as the default icon for bookmarks without their own icons, rather than the new "empty square" icon. I don't want to have to change each one individually because there's too many of them. Is there a way to change this in preferences, or to replace the default icon file?

I recently updated to Firefox 20.0 and noticed that the native Inspect Element tool doesn't have an option to display the page css elements along the right-side of the window like it used to. Is there a button somewhere I'm missing that allows this view?

I also noticed that I cannot hit escape to exit the inspector anymore. Why would this option have been removed?
