Hello,

Every time I open Firefox and click the restore previous session button at the bottom nothing happens. That's the first part of the problem. Next, when I click on my history and click restore previous session, it does so but opens them all in a new window. It was only 3-4 days ago that this started happening. I would like to change what ever is causing this back to how it was as it is quite annoying when I have pinned tabs and I have to keep re-pinning them. I am running the Developer version of Firefox.

Thank you.

I have Start my search start as soon as I open Firefox. I ran malwarebytes to get rid of unwanted programs, and this cleared this particularly annoying bar from starting in all browsers except Firefox (the browser I use most!). I reset MSN as my homepage, and set my homepage to open when I start Firefox. Guess what? When I open Firefox, Start my search opens! MSN is still my home page, but despite followong all the instructions from Start my search I CANNOT get rid of it. Can anyone help please!

every few times i switch to FF to debug, the inspector window is totally blank. if i click the inspector tool and highlight html, it will appear to be scrolling over in the inspector window to highlight the code, but the page is totally blank. close/reopen tools fixes, but a few times later its broken again. has been going on for months and months, at least since v32. Using FirefoxDeveloperEdition.

I have my browser set to open on comcast.net webpage and to never use tabs. I have been using firefox for years and am very familiar with it. Suddenly it has started opening on the last page it was on when shut down, and has started using tabs. When I delete Firefox from my computer, it still remembers all my settings. I had this problem once before years ago and ended up having to wipe my entire drive to fix it. I would like to avoid a drive wipe this time. I need to know how to get ALL of the browsers information deleted from the registry so I can get a truly fresh install. And yes, I have tried all the normal avenues and am pretty computer savvy. Please help before I go nuts. I am running the most recent version, but going back to older versions didn't help either. Thanks.

I was trying to visit a site tonight but I got this error message instead!

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to web.mo.gov. security library: improperly formatted DER-encoded message. (Error code: sec_error_bad_der)

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

The problem is that yesterday and many times before I was able to access that site without any problems until earlier tonight! I tried looking it up on Internet Explorer and it works just fine but since Firefox is the main browser on my computer I would prefer finding a solution to the problem! I am somewhat computer illiterate (but I do know that I am using Windows 7) and I do not know what to do! Can anyone please help me as this is quite important?

Thanks

I have the latest Flash Player Plug-in 16.0.0.305 but it seems to work on some sites and not others. It's generally fine for YouTube but my son likes to play on happyclicks.net and it doesn't work there . It also doesn't work on videos embedded in forums.

Below are all the add-ons etc I run.

I've tried disabling VLC but it still doesn't work. Once though I switched it to never activate Flash. Closed the browser started it again then put it to always activate and then it worked normally for a time.

Any help would be much appreciated.

The problem appears when all web pages stop loading. I then exit FF. Task Manager shows the process to still be running. It cannot be killed. Task Manager says the process cannot be accessed. The only solution is to reboot.

I have tried Safe Mode and refreshed the browser without success. I tried disabling all plug-ins.

I am running Win7, FF37 beta.

I'd like to insert some CSS code to increase the size of my tiles. My current setup is attached. I'd like to keep the 5x3 grid, but increase each tile so that it covers up more of the margin, and also so that the scrollbar is no longer necessary.

What code can I insert to do this?

I was searching the forum for translators and noticed some past questions about it. I wanted to say that Google Translator translates into 40 languages and it can be installed as an add-on in Firefox. I just installed it for a Swedish web site and the translation was amazing. It's very quick and seems to work very well.

I do not understand why all websites brought up in firefox wouldn't show in history- but they don't. Not when they are brought up as a restore last session. When I look in history they should be there. Why doesn't firefox add your last session you are opening into that day's history????? So frustrating. This needs to be addressed.

I have noticed MacKeeper found what it called harmful files or (virus?) in the Library.. Rather than quarantine them, I deleted them.. Then, after a Firefox (beta) update, there were 6 more files.. so, I quarantined them. and took a look at the file info which was quite long, and found the name "Firefox" in the info..

I'm now wondering if MacKeeper was contributing to the gradual slowing of Firefox loading web pages. Eventually, it got so bad the page would hang forever and a force quit was necessary. Safari did not have any such problem, and in fact was quite fast loading large web pages.

MacKeeper is not intuitive in it's configuration, or operation .. I'm actually thinking of getting rid of it .. once I figure out how to do that.

If you have MacKeeper.. how do you keep it from messing with Firefox? Thanks, Regards, Michael

PS: here's a pic of some files MacKeeper didn't like..see attached:
