When I open Firefox in a new tab, I would like to have it open to a page of my choice. Right now, it seems there is no way to change that, but previous versions had this feature, and I put my computer to "google.com" for example, so I could be ready to search, whenever I pressed "command-T" (for new tab.) Are we stuck on Yahoo, now, or whatever Firefox chooses for new tabs, or is there a way to change this?

Firefox 20 loads very slowly. sometimes taking several minutes. When it does open, it's often very slow to load sites. Sometimes it hangs for seconds to minutes and I get the spinning beach ball of death. I downloaded another copy of FF20 and installed it. Same thing. I cleared cache and cookies with only a little improvement. Suggestions? Mac OS 10.6.8

Thanks.

I've tried resetting and various other workarounds I've seen on the forums, and still, FF will soon jump to using up 4 Gigs of RAM, and when I want to open a new window, or tab, it will freeze, and I must wait till the spinning ball does it thing, watching the CPU usage shoot up to 300 or 400%, or in some cases, as high as 2,000%!! All the while showing "Firefox is not responding". Then, it will finally go back down (CPU usage, not RAM), and function for awhile, or it may crash. Once it gets up that high, I will reboot the program, but it doesn't take it very long to climb right back up there. What else could be the issue?

Any way to recover my entire Firefox history (dating back several months)?

Hi,

I'm running Firefox 14.0.1 on a 3-year-old Macbook with Snow Leopard.

I recently noticed that Firefox doesn't keep my Internet history forever (which I'd set it to do), but instead deletes my history when it's a few months old. It's August 12th and I just now saw that my history dates back only to May. So anything from April and earlier is gone--unless I bookmarked it, which I don't always do. The fact that they're gone forever is killing me.

Is there any way I can recover my deleted history dating back months, or even years? I'd even be willing to pay for software that would do this.

Many thanks for any help!

I normally like to do my updates at the start of the day, check for kinks and restart my machine. When the update pops up midday, I forget about it, accidentally close it or end up checking the not now when the window is active when I don't expect it. Not to mention I have 12 other apps I am using and do not want to restart at that time. Is there a way to make firefox update or check for updates instead of waiting for it to show up?

I just installed Firefox 21. I do not see the Clear History item in the Tools menu any more. Is there any way to get that back? I prefer to have easy voluntary control over clearing the history and other data. Why did the developers not set the item in the Privacy panel to ask first before clearing anything, the way it did before?

I just created a new gmail account and firefox is not giving me an option to save the password (the pop-up does not appear). I have several other gmail passwords saved already on this computer and have not changed any settings. I accept cookies. When I go to another site (facebook) and put in a new login info, the option to save that password pops up like normal.

I use a mac running snow leopard. Firefox 22.0.

Please advise why gmail specifically is not allowing me to save my password.

Also: there really should be a method to manually enter passwords for sites rather than just being able to delete them in "preferences".

Since updating to Firefox 30, Flash video on sites such as YouTube, DailyMotion, and others flickers in and out. It isn't just the video that flickers, either: It's also the player portion of the video (Play/Pause, volume, etc.) that flickers. While the flickering occurs primarily during playback, it can linger for a few seconds after playback has stopped. Not entirely sure what is going on here.
