For several recent updates of FireFox all my ID's and passwords (saved in password manager) disappear. I have been able to retrieve them by swapping one or more of three files from a previous version ("Key3.db", "Logins.json", & "Prefs.js") UNTIL THE LAST THREE OR FOUR UPDATES. This fix no longer works and I am therefore reluctant to update any more. I would like to know... a) Has this bug been fixed? b) If it hasn't, how can I store my ID's & Passwords elsewhere so I can quickly re-install them or at least see them in a list so I can manually copy them all back in again? c) How can I stop an annoying pop-up telling me to update FireFox (other than by updating it)?

I have used FireFox happily for many years but this problem is very annoying and I am looking to change (very reluctantly) to some other browser if another update loses all ID's & Passwords and I have to re-install an older version to get them back. Please help if you can -- and thanks for considering this problem.

For the last several versions of Firefox, all attempts at PDF downloads fail. On rare occasions I can go to Save As..., get a dialogue box and save the file. But 80+% of the time it just fails and I have to go and paste the URL into Safari to get the file. Every time Ffx. upgrades I think this might get fixed, but it hasn't. I'm running AdBan and Do Not Track Me in both browsers, so that shouldn't be the issue. Please advise.

What is happening is that Firefox is remaining as a background process in Windows 8.1 Update 1. Every time I start Firefox, there is no navigation, and requires a reboot of the system to fix. There has to be a better way around this. I also have screenshot pictures, but can't upload them here.

autoselecting of text in adressbar and searchbar fails, or happens when I press bacspace

I just updated from 32.x to 33.1 I'm on win7-64.

I now have a problem whenever I try to access the adress-bar (the control where you type the URL) and the serach-bar. It used to be that when the control did not have focus and you clicked in it, the text was autoselected, this means that when you start typing it replaces the previous text. This behaviour was consistent with other mainstream browsers (IE, Chrome, Opera).

After the update whenever I click in the adress-bar (or search-bar) the text is not selected. Sometimes when I move the mouse to the top (not having any mouse-button down) it selects the text. This is annoying, the only consistent way to select the text now is pressing Ctrl+A. What is even worse, is the fact that when I click in the adress-bar (and search-bar),(no text ets selected), and I press BackSpace button (I'm at end of text) it then selects the text and deletes the entire text.

Along with the fact that typing in FF 33.1 ismuch, much, much slower than in 32, this makes the browser almost completely useless to me, which is a pity, since I'm using FF as my default browser from version 1.5.

Does anybody know a fix for this (or should I downgrade (how to?))?

Hello everybody,

I wanted to upgrade my Firefox Sync account from the old to the new version. Unfortunately the login page does not load on my laptop. On my Android devices everything is working fine, so I could already set up the new account from there, I just can't login to my new sync account on my laptop. I am running Firefox 33.1 on Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit.

The about:accounts landing page loads as normal, but clicking on the button to log in does not load the login form, the white box just stays empty. I asked my dear friend Google who gave me some answers (seems to be a common problem...), but none of them helped me.

The debugging console displays the error "SecurityError: The operation is insecure" directly after loading about:accounts?action=signin. Opening https://accounts.firefox.com/signin and https://accounts.firefox.com/signup also results in the same error and an empty white box. https://accounts.firefox.com/legal/privacy works as normal though.

I did not find a solution to work around that SecurityError up to now.

I have two computers, each with lots of bookmarks. I don't know if sync is a new feature, but I have only recently discovered it. However, it is not clear to me that if I was to sync the two computers, would it combine the two lots of bookmarks, or overwrite one with the other, so I haven't been game to try. I would like to combine them, so that they are the same on both computers, and then use the sync feature to keep that up

I appear to have been recently infected by Ask search engine

Everytime I open a new tab it defaults to this search engine. I want to reset so that new tab displays thumbnails of recently visited sites

I have followed instructions from your Support website using about:config and newtab but the preference under browser.newtab.url seems correct at about:newtab

Yet new tab still defaults to search engine

How can I reset to thumbnails?

I was trying out a full version of Avast Internet Security and at the end of the trial time, it began unloading the full version of the software. While it was in the process, it came to a point in which it asked to reboot the computer. I clicked yes. At this time, Firefox was in mid bootup and Firefox Browser has crashed every time since this event.

I have deleted Firefox several times and reloaded it and it still crashes. I did a virus scan and found not problems.

I have Firefox set to never accept cookies, and I have an Exception list that specifically allows cookies from sites of my choice. Trouble is, this exception list is somehow being expanded with sites that I haven't included, and in some cases, sites that I've specifically blocked. For example, I have explicitly blocked cookies from Google. Yet, when I check the list, I find both the rule I entered blocking Google, and a new rule that I didn't enter specifying that Google may drop cookies for First Party Only.

Question: Who (besides me, the user) is allowed to expand the Exception list, and why? Seems to me this makes the promise of the list nearly worthless.

I'm running Firefox 33.1.1.
