When I click on any dropdown lists for options on any website, the list disappears before I can click on any option. I find by clearing the cache and cookies each time, it will work just once before it needs clearing again. So it has to be cleared for every single click on an option.

After the last update, everything in my Firefox has vanished. I am sick to my stomach about this, and I've tried lots of suggestions, but I cannot get it back.

It is like I never existed on Firefox. My page is empty of all my addons, toolbars, bookmarks, my Reminder Fox, which held very, very important information and all my doctor appointments/reminders. It is a brand new empty page and a HORRIBLE purple color to boot. I am just sick about this. In lots of info I've read today, it states that Firefox stores information off sight for safety and so it is never lost. Well, everything I've accumulated and saved is absolutely lost. The trouble shooting info is of no use, nothing works. I will try the steps below, but I have little patience or faith left! I've been a Firefox user [and advocate]for many years, this is so disappointing.

After clicking on a link from Thunderbird email, Firefox opens first time, but after closing I am unable to open it again, as it says Firefox is still running although it is not. The process still runs as shown by Task Manager and have to end task to reload Firefox.

Have reinstalled it several times, but no look. So far it only seems to happen after opening Firefox through Thunderbird.

Any help to resolve this would be great as I do not want to resort to using IE

I'm using Firefox 29 on Win7x64. It's my default browser. Sometimes, when I try to open a web link from Outlook email or Yahoo email, the link does not open. Instead, Firefox opens a process every time that I click, but does not open the link or even a page. If I try to open another Firefox instance by clicking the shortcut, yet another process starts, but a page does not open. Safe mode does not help. The only resolution thus far is to close every process or reboot, and then re-install Firefox. This issue began in v29 or the one just before. I also have tried suggestions posted to the forum. Thanks!

Previously with Firefox I could file a new bookmark directly into a new or existing folder. How can I do that with new Firefox??? (without having to save it and then move it later, which I don't see how to do anyway) And how can I organize and edit bookmarks and folders with new Firefox? This was all so easy previously with Firefox. This is a major step backward in user unfriendliness.

After updating to Firefox 29.0, firefox.exe *32 process keeps running after application exit, and must be terminated manually before Firefox will re-start. The update to 29.0.1 did not solve the issue. All updates prior to 29.0 never exhibited this problem, and there have been no other changes to my system, so this issue originated with 29.0.

Since the update to Firefox 29 I have been suffering from a glitch that causes the Session Restore to not function correctly.

I have checked over on Bugzilla and not found a bug that does the same thing so I am asking here in case anyone else suffers from it and/or if there is a potential solution.

The problem occurs when Firefox crashes and attempts to restore the previous session. However, when Firefox restarts "about:sessionrestore" is shown in the Tab, but the page itself is a blank white page. Further, checking the sessionrestore.js shows that the previous session is still stored there, but cannot be loaded for whatever reason.

Without touching the sessionrestore.js file, manually typing "about:sessionrestore" in the address bar does fully load the about:sessionrestore page, but it shows the previous session as blank and wipes all the previous session data from sessionrestore.js.

Anyone else had this problem or know of a way to fix it?

I've attached the about:crashes entry for it here: 75492a6a-ff78-4388-9d97-e2c222140513

Also, I do have Session Manager and Tab Mix Plus installed, with Session Manager as my default manager, though currently I have Firefox set to load my Home Page at startup.

Hi Friends, After the recent upgrade to 29.0.1, and having several unwanted changes forced upon me, I installed Classic Theme Restorer plugin, to get my old setup back, MOSTLY. I was able to remove the new menu button, which I'm very happy about.

However, since then, there's a new button on the toolbar which I've removed 3 or 4 times now, and it just keeps coming back. That's the Theme Font and Size Changer plugin button.

What can I do to remove that button from the toolbar, so that it stays away?

I guess I could uninstall that plugin, but probably the changes I made with it will go away.

Thanks for your help  :-)

On every page of my website dominicrouse.com I have a javascript menu designed using Sothink DHTML Menu 9.10

Using IE and other browsers the subtleties that I incorporated display perfectly but in FF they are lost.

I am referring specifically to a slow fade up and down and a background transparency that fits neatly into each page.

Any ideas as to how I fix this?

Many thanks,

DR

I would like to tag files -such as images and music- immediately while downloading them for easy retrieval later. Windows has a native tag searching feature, and several programs are able to edit the metadata they use for that when saving; so I would imagine that Firefox at least has an add-on that can do that, but I am having difficulty finding one that fits the bill.

I've added several add-on icons to my tool bar for easy use, however a couple of them disappear if I click on a link in an email or website only to re-appear when I go back to the main page. This doesn't happen if I first "Right Click" on the link and select "Open in a new Tab". Then the icons remain in place. Not all of my icons disappear only 3 at this point. In addition, one of the add-on icons mysteriously disappears every once in a while, and reverts back to the section with other Icons ("Additional Tools and Features") that can be added when you open Customize. I'm running the latest version of FF. Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.

My firefox crashes almost daily. It seems to crash most often when I start using it again when it has been idle for a few hours. But it also crashes while I've been using it for an extended period of time and also when I'm not using it at all (I return home to find an unwelcome Mozilla crash reporter - I am so sick of seeing that thing!). I've got my add-ons down to the essentials, hoping that uninstalling some add-ons that I didn't need would solve the problem. It hasn't. Here are some specifics about my situation: -I am running Mozilla 29.0.1 on Windows 7 -I keep a lot of tabs open at a time, like 2 separate pages, one with 20 tabs and one with 20-30. I recognize that this amount is a lot and might be the cause of my problem, but I can't get past the fact that my mozilla rarely crashed before I updated to this version. My add-ons: -Adblock Plus 2.6 -Diigo toolbar 5.1.0.39 -Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus 1.3 -Evernote Web Clipper 5.9.1 -Google Shortcuts 2.1.7.1 -Last Pass 3.1.1 -Menu Editor 1.2.7 -Restartless Restart 9 -Tab Counter 1.9.9 -Tab Mix Plus 0.4.1.3.1 After some googling, I thought that it might be a memory usage issue and it seems that Adblock, Google Shortcuts, and Menu Editor take up a lot of memory usage. I imagine others take up memory usage too. But these add-ons are indispensable to my browsing experience. I have reached the end of my troubleshooting capabilities. I know enough about computers to be able to fix minor problems but nothing I have done seems to make a difference. I have also saved some crash reports, not that I know what any of it means. I would like this problem to be solved without changing any of my browsing habits or add-ons. I think the problem is the new version of FIrefox because I never had this problem before it automatically updated itself. I can get past the minor annoyances that have come with this new version (not being able to put my google shortcuts on the bottom toolbar, for example) but every time I see a Mozilla crash reporter, I just want to throw something. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In FF 29, I have a need to change the yellow folder icon associated with one or more specific bookmarks folders. I prefer to do this with css, rather than with an extension. Following an example in another thread, I did the following:

Use the troubleshooting menu to open the profile folder. Create a subfolder named "chrome". In "chrome", create a file called "userChrome.css", and insert the text shown below. Copy sample ico, png and gif images to "chrome" for testing. Save and close the css file, and bounce the browser. No results - for example, in Library view. The "My Saved Links" bookmarks subfolder definitely exists. I suspected that I might be doing the URL wrong, trying to access a small image file in "chrome" called "test.png". I've tried 'test.png', '/test.png', and '../test.png' on hunches, though I'm not yet a heavy css user.

Help would be appreciated. The css is as follows:

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

#personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item[container][label="My Saved Links"],
#bookmarksMenuPopup .bookmark-item[container][label="My Saved Links"],
appmenu_bookmarksPopup  .bookmark-item[container][label="My Saved Links"]
{ list-style-image:url('test.png')!important;
 -moz-image-region:auto!important; }
