First, system info: I'm on Mac OS 10.5.8 I was using Firefox 3 until yesterday when I updated to 9. Had no apparent problems with bookmarks after the update but I had not closed the session; it was only after starting up this morning that all my bookmark folders are missing from the Bookmarks Menu.

I've been through all the "lost bookmarks" sections of Firefox - no answers there to my specific problem. Most of them focus on bookmarks being completely missing - but in my case it's only the Folders that are missing.

Here are at least some of the pages I've looked at and been through all the suggestions that were relevant: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Lost_bookmarks https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Lost%20Bookmarks http://kb.mozillazine.org/Lost_bookmarks#Bookmarks_missing_after_restarting https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/common-questions-after-upgrading-firefox-36 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/latest-firefox-issues

There was a momentary power-down yesterday, but the folders were still there when the power came back on, so that's not it.

There was one anomaly with the way my bookmarks WERE. That is, when I selected Bookmarks from the top navigation bar, go down the drop-down past Bookmarks Toolbar, instead of all my folders being displayed there, I'd have to go to Bookmarks Menu and then to a side panel of the Menu which showed a folder saying All Bookmarks and from there I'd have to go to another side panel that opened off that to access the list of all my folders and run down to select one. This strange functionality came after some previous update, never could fix that and got no help with it. So I just put up with having more mouse work to get to my sites.

This is a serious problem for me - I am in training on SEO, internet marketing, Wordpress, etc plus running another business. EVERYTHING I rely upon for my work was meticulously organized into those folders, which now seem to be gone.

Are there any seriously technical people in Firefox/Mozilla who can go deeper than the stuff suggested on their websites?

I can no longer log into Gmail, Facebook, Amazon, etc... using Firefox. I get the following error "accounts.google.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)". It works with IE but not Firefox. This just started a few days ago - prior to that I was able to log into those https sites without issue. Any suggestions? Thank you.

When the Bookmarks Toolbar is sitting next to tabs and many tabs are opened, bookmarks that shift into the overflow menu do not return after the tabs are closed.

Resizing the window smaller and then bigger again restores these "hidden" bookmarks.

Screenshot of issue How it should look Video of issue

Sometimes the overflow doesn't work properly with bookmarks failing to appear on the dropdown list.

Edit: Updated first post to reflect findings.

Even this very page has problems, NO ICONS for text options,italic, insert link, bold, etc. I am using VISTA. Starting with ff 8 icons and images do not display on HUNDREDS of web sites, little things like search, submit, prev, next. others are links. tried everything, permissions, nothing being blocked, no add ons or extensions, cleared everything suggested. If you hunt and peck the cursor will indicate something is there whether a link or not. Now on ff9 it is worse, cursor does not indicate a non link image. chrome is looking better every day.

Firefox 10.0 doesn't work with Network Solutions email (and possibly other sites)

If you plan to upgrade to FF 10.0 which just released today, I suggest you to read their Release Note first:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/10.0/releasenotes/


Pay special attention to 1st item in KNOWN ISSUES. After I upgraded to FF 10.0, some of my websites gave me a warning that I need to use an UPDATED version of Firefox. Obviously, they couldn't recognize the two-digit version number. So I revert back to FF 9.0. But when I went to those websites, they still gave me the same warning even I have deleted the cookies, etc. I did a System Restore back to yesterday and now everything is back to normal.

This could be a case-by-case situation. But I just want to let users be aware.

I do not want to post the websites I have problems with since there probably be others anyway.

I will click a link for a download and the box will pop up saying

"You have chosen to open "blahblah.blah.blah
   Which is a: blah file
   From: www.randomsite.com
   What should Firefox do with this file?
        Open with
        Save File"

At this point other than being able to see the box, it is as though it doesn't exist. I can't click okay or cancel or choose what to do. Sometimes after a few minutes it will suddenly work, other times it will just remain until Firefox closes.

I always have 2-3 windows with 30-40 tabs on each going on at a time, and when I power off my laptop, I simply close the windows knowing that I can restore "Recently Closed Windows" from the opened one when I restart ff. But this is the 2nd time even the 2nd windows is not shown there. Disaster! Where can I manually restore the one with more than 50 tabs?

It is strongly recommended that you apply this update for Firefox as soon as possible." When I click on "update," I get a message of trying to connect, and a bar with a blue spiral. It lasts for hours, but never connects. I would like to install this update, but can't figure out how to do it. Any help would be deeply appreciated.

Security Challenge

What was the model of your first car?

Select One of the Following Options: This is a personal computer. Register it. This is a public computer. Do not register it.

The above information is what I get. It is normal to get that the first time I use a computer, but if I register it as a personal PC, I should not have to do it again, unless it is a public PC and I did not register it. The tech support people at the bank are aware of this problem, but have not been able to determine why it happens with Firefox only.

Thanks, Ted Feller

So someone screwed something up on the proxy servers here at work (at least that's all we can figure out). When I try to go to Google.com, I get one of those Untrusted Sites warning messages that it is trying to connect to accounts.google.com and can't verify that it's secure.

Problem is, I don't have the option to click I understand the Risks and tell it to just go through anyway. I only get the option to Leave or view the details.

Is there any way to add accounts.google.com to an exception list or anything like that so I can just force it to work? Or is there any way to force the Understand Risks area to show up so I can do the Add Exception thing?

Thanks.

I have tried to ask this before but got totally irrelevant responses. Shortly after updating to the newest Firefox, my Yahoo mail began displaying without showing senders in inbox and other folders. Yahoo mail works with other browsers, even an old version of I.E. (that I haven't used in a long time) and in Chrome. It must be a Firefox-related issue. I was told by yahoo to disable all add-ons and extensions, however I'm afraid I won't find these again and need them to work

Thanks
