I needed to use Firefox Sync recently to keep all my saved passwords from my old hard drive for a reformat.

I've reformatted and needed to recover these passwords to I went in to the options and found I NEEDED THE OLD DEVICE TO RECLAIM MY SETTINGS.

and When I chose the options that claimed I had lost that device IT ERASED ALL MY STORED SETTINGS AND PASSWORDS FROM THE FIREFOX SYNC SERVER.

WHAT THE HELL KIND OF SERVICE IS MOZILLA RUNNING. YOU'VE RUINED EVERYTHING WITH YOUR TERRIBLE AND UNUSUABLE SERVICE.

THIS IS A TERRIBLE LACK OF CONVENIENCE THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN MADE CLEAR UPFRONT ON HOW THIS SERVICE WAS MEANT TO BE USED. THE FACT THAT THE SERVICE FORCED ME TO COMPLETELY ERASE MY OLD INFORMATION IS IMPOSSIBLY DISSERVICEABLE AND JUST INCOMPREHENSIBLE THAT THERE COULD NOT BE A STRAIGHT-FORWARD PATH TO RECLAIMING MY STORED DATA.

Firefox 10 Color Visited links...I read how the instructions on how to "Go into options and uncheck the "web page choose their own colors" but the pages get really get messed up looking *losing their colors and format appearance.

I read where you have to make a usercustom.CSS file and then make a chome dir underneath firefox profile. *visisted links=red" for the command to load. Can somebody give details instructions on what directories I have to make and under profile so my visited links have changed color. I'm an old guy and I really need help remembering what links I clicked on before. Where do I put the CSS, name of CSS? or is this something that can't be done anymore with the new ver of Firefox,, Coloring links worked with older ver of Firefox but not now without messing up the whole web page appearance. HELP and old guy.. :) Thanks

I've got trouble with Google Maps via Firefox 10.0.1 on Mac OS 10.7.3. The main screen of Google Maps loads - but when I type something in the search window - it freezes and displays a message (in Polish, so I'll translate): "Still loading? too slow ? Look for solutions <link> or choose basic html mode"

Safari and Chrome work fine with Google Maps on the same computer.

Firefox just updated itself to 10.0.1 and it has changed this. I used to just type twitter.com or amazon.com and the page loads. When I do this now, absolutely nothing happens. Even if I type the full address: https://twitter.com nothing happens. There isn't even an error message. If I go to google search, and then click on the page, it goes to it with no problem.

What is a pain is that it still has my history of frequently visited pages, but I can't use it now.

I'm sure there must be a setting which changed on Firefox, because this still works perfectly well with Chrome, but I can't find the correct setting.

I am setting up a new laptop after a HDD crash. I have copied across my Data, from a back up Ext HD. I have my old IE "favourites", saved in folders as "internet shortcuts", on my new C drive.

Please, how do I get those favourites / bookmarks into FireFox?

I have read elsewhere that I have to import them first into IE, but the method described seems to only allow import of one file at a time. I have c 600 bookmarks.

I am using Win7 Home Premium and Firefox 10.0.01. I have IE9 on this computer.

Thanks

I updated Firefox last night, and now the location bar is not working. If I click on a full link after typing in part of it (e.g. fac brings up www.facebook.com) it doesn't connect; neither does hitting "enter" after typing in an address (with or without http://) connect me. The only way to connect to a site is to click my home button, or to click the "go" arrow at the end of the bar. This is incredibly annoying! What can I do about it?

I hope there may be a setting to address this issue...

I have a number of passwords saved for various non critical web sites such as this forum. Recently I set a "master password" to protect my saved passwords. Whenever I open a page which has text boxes for credentials which I have saved I am prompted for the master password regardless of whether I wish to authenticate to the site or not. I would like to configure Firefox to only open the saved passwords repository (for want of a batter word) when I choose to authenticate to a site.

Is this possible?

TIA,

Ken

p.s. I close Firefox (to flush cookies etc.) OFTEN so simply unlocking the saved passwords once a day and leaving Firefox running is not an answer.
