I allowed Firefox to make changes on an update which resulted in my Document folders to be flooded with lots and lots of 1-4kb thumbnail files.

Seems to be related to previously opened web pages. I tried to copy and paste the file names but this was not possible.

Also some sub folders are gone while the word folder's content is still available

Also lots of duplicate documents in main Document folder even from my Dropbox?

Right clicking on a link used to bring up a choice called "properties". Several years ago, a FireFox update removed that ("properties") and an add-on had to be installed to restore it. The latest FireFox update, named 44.0b1, disabled the restorative add-on and removed the "properties" choice from the right click box again. Now, what is to be done? My Operating System: Windows XP

After reinstalling Firefox (to new 64-bit version), I've lost all of my favicons. I'm seeing that only way to get them back is to individually select each bookmark. Is there a way to get the bookmarks to go and automatically download their favicons so my bookmarks will be repopulated again?

In the latest version of Firefox, 44.0b.4, Password manager is replaced by Login Manager.

In Login Mgr. I can no longer see my saved passwords, just dots instead of characters.

If I right click on a dotted password and try to edit, all I see is a Blue box not my password.

Some of these passwords will be difficult to recover.

Hello! I had earlier norwegian as my preferred language. I don't want it anymore. Now allmost all of the things are on english on my computer. But some things are still on norwegian. Yes, I rebooted my computer to factory settings and downloaded Firefox again, (last one multiple times). I am not facing this problem with other browsers... But I like so damn much to use Firefox that I'm still working with this problem... The problem: If I use for example Office 365, it always says everything in the beginning by norwegian and if I for example google: "download opera", firefox redirects me to Operas norwegian site. Like said, this doesn't happen with other browsers. I have done everything that I can, without success. I'm very very very grateful if you please can help me to switch everything back to English. best regards, Sami Härkönen harkonensami@gmail.com

I just did an upgrade to Firefox 44.0 on my Windows 10 64-bit system. In trying to get Java to work, I was asked whether my browser (ie Firefox) is 32-bit or 64-bit. I can't find out which it is - the forum queries and their answers seem to suggest that there are both 32-bit and 64-bit releases for some operating systems.
