I recently backup up my entire computer than did a factory reset. When I restored everything it did not return the mozilla saved bookmarks or passwords. I was able to find and restore the bookmarks but have not been able to restore the passwords. I am looking for a solution to finding and storing, copying, or printing out the list of passwords in the back up copy.

Thank you

Firefox just stops running at random times. I used to be able to close it thru task manager no problem. Now when I try that nothing happens. The process highlights and just stays there running no matter how many times I click it. I can close other processes just fine. Firefox hangs a lot more often lately and it's a pain to have to constantly shut down and restart to clear it. Firefox hangs while in different websites or even after I've closed it but haven't shut down since. When I try to reopen it I get the "already running not responding" message. But even when I close normally it still seems to stay on in the background. I'm not tech savvy at all so any solution would be appreciated. Thanks.

I'm using Windows 20, and recently install Freemake Video Downloader. I remember that I had not checked the "Make Freemake my default search provider" when installing the product. But still, Firefox use it as the default search engine. I've did some research, which tell me to go to the search box, choose the drop-down arrow, and click "Manage Search Engines". The thing is, the Freemake search engine was not there. So I just delete every search engine except only one I like, and resart the browser. Surprisingly, it has change to the homepage and search engine I want, except for one thing. If you type in the address bar, it STILL use Freemake search engine. So I have search in Control Panel > Uninstall a problem (which I didn't found anything I don't install myself). I want to keep the program, but is there a way to reset this? I can do this in Chrome and Opera, why not Firefox?

Thank you.

I was using a theme which increased the height of tabs. Unfortunately, the theme conflicted with tab menu setting using the TabMixPlus extension. I am stuck with the default theme or others which do not increase the tab height. I have tried a variety of codes in userChrome.css to no avail. I am presently using the default theme with Firefox 20.0.1 (a Linux operating system).

I ran a search under Google news for Bill Lerach around 4:15 pm EST, and there was one result for an Apr 24, 2013 article "Who's Teaching Your Children" to the Dallas Blog, and when I clicked on it I was directed to a message "Firefox can't find the server at forgud.qhigh [dot] com." However, when I clicked back to the Google news result page and put my cursor over the link to the article the link was to dallasblog [dot] com, and yet when I again clicked on it once again got the message "Firefox can't find the server at forgud.qhigh [dot] com." Why am I being directed to this odd web address with the "server not found" message which is inconsistent with the hover link for my search result on google news? I'd appreciate any insight on this issue. Thanks.

Firefox 20.0.1 on WinXP SP3.

Previously, when I selected "Always ask where to save files" Firefox would start from the default Downloads folder - there I had shortcuts to the locations that I usually save to.

Now Firefox insists on starting from the root of C: - and I don't know how to change this behavior.

I'd want it to start from the default Download folder as it used to. It is the location where I had these shortcuts and I do NOT wish to place these shortcuts in the root of C: .

So this problem came up a day or two ago and my computer isn't the only one affected by this.

Embedded youtube videos show up as just a black box. I can still watch videos on youtube itself though.

I can watch embedded twitch.tv streams however I can not watch them on twitch.tv itself.

On some forums I visit if someone has a spoiler tag and I click to open it it just forces me to the top of the page and does nothing to open the spoiler.

On Target.com none of the products show up and if I try to narrow results (that don't exist) on the left side nothing happens you just get forced to the top of the page like the spoiler tag issue.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling java, firefox, quicktime, and flash. I've tried running firefox in safe mode. I've tried just disabling adblock and noscript. I've tried leaving adblock and noscript on but allowing all scripts and popups. I've made sure all my plugins are up to date. I've cleared my cookies and cache. I'm sure I've tried some other stuff I can't even remember at this point. Again this isn't only an issue on my computer, it's also an issue on 2 laptops, one running FF 20.0, my desktop and the other are running FF 20.0.1.

(I've taken screenshots of all the issues in question along with the updated plug ins but I'm not seeing where to add them.)

The download panel window does not ever display anymore, when downloading updates, i.e. Adobe, etc. There is a little notice at the bottom of the screen that says downloads are complete, but then it disappears. I have to manually go to the download folder to look for the update and run it. Very annoying.

I have looked around for a solution, but no one seems to have this problem.

Thanks.
