I get that I need to have certain addons only for the developer Version, but I've been having difficulty keeping up with what I need for one and ones that meet my specific needs otherwise. I can only type using one finger at a time due to my autism causing poor coordination. I've been having trouble keeping my gmail synced up in places and it's the mail one I use. But I can't sync my password to different devices as it always asks for a password I haven't used before. I am happy to keep the addons proper on the developer version, and not use it for anything until I ca get it set up without having to re-sync everything. Do you have a suggestion for limited motor ability?

I have a sony vaio duo 13 which is a sliding laptop tablet hybrid. I run nightly on the desktop for all my web browsing because i guess i am what is called a power user. I need all the options and features that firefox gives us, and don't care for the barebones yet more fluid experience of the Metro app. My problem is that when I am using Nightly in Desktop it runs great, but anytime i close my screen (which doesnt close in the traditional sense, it folds the screen out) and transforms it into tablet mode, it launches the Metro version of Nightly. If i was using the desktop version it transfers all my tabs to the metro app. and when i open the screen to laptop mode, it simply closes everything. AFAIK i don't remember installing the Metro version... I can go to the Start Screen and find the metro app but i am afraid to uninstall it because i think it will uninstall the whole Nightly Application, which i dont want to happen. I created an administrator account and went to the MetroApp repository on the harddrive but there is nothing there related to nightly or firefox so i can't just delete it.

So I have Firefox on a main O/S Windows 8.1 & a second boot Ubuntu 12.04. I've set up my sync account on Windows 8.1 & when I set it up on Ubuntu with the recovery key it will import the bookmarks, add ons, preferences ect. The problem is if I add bookmarks in Windows Firefox & then boot Ubuntu Firefox it won't change it on Ubuntu, if I add a new bookmark on Ubuntu Firefox it won't change it on Windows. They both keep their own instance of my sync but won't share it & share the changes.

Am I supposed to select a setting at the Sync Options to tell it to keep both the browsers the same & to also let each other add bookmarks? If you know what I mean ;)

I have many tabs opened with a lot of images loaded, when I switch to a tab with a lot of images, it seems firefox reload the images, making the switching to that tab very slow.

I think reloading the images on the opened tab is necessary, and I find that in Chrome, when I switch to the tab with the same link is fast, and images are shown immediately and no reloading happens.

BTW, I have stop Firefox from reloading inactive tabs when I switch to them by using the method below: Type about:config in Address bar search accessibility.blockautorefresh and change the value to "True"

But the problem I described still happens.

Any way to fix it? Thanks!

I've upgraded to Win 8.1, Firefox v26, Shockwave, Flash, and the newest Java JRE's. YouTube videos result in an error message and to try again later. The interesting feature is that IE v11 will show the videos with no error. The Win 8.1 upgrade took away my sound, and I've read the other problems that seem to be related to YouTube and sound. But, IE plays the videos with no sound, so that's not sound related.

I want that little star back that opens the bookmarks sidebar. It's just to the left of the address field on XP in FP 25. But on Windows 8 in FP 25.0.1 it's not there. Instead there's a star that sometimes appears on the right of the address bar. But the star on the right does not open the bookmarks sidebar. It only displays a list of bookmarks and options, which do not include opening the sidebar. Has this option been removed and replaced with Ctrl B?

Hello, I am writing as I am experiencing some issues with my favorite web browser after updating to Windows 8.1. Here are some details. I updated from Windows 8.0 to Windows 8.1 and ever since Firefox has run somewhat strangely. In particular when on sites with a lot of images like Facebook. It is like there is some kind of Flikr effect between the desktop and the images and between the images and the browser (almost like old 16 bit video games flikering). It is not too bad but it is an issue. I have tried resetting firefox and restarting the computer. I haven't tried a repair, and I haven't done an uninstall yet.

Hi, I've just accidentally deleted my whole partition which I save the back up bookmark (.json). I did manage to recovered it from a program but it seem like Firefox unable to process it. And my Sync Data seem to be gone too. And I know nothing about json file (yeah, I did some research but it seem it's out of my range.) I guess anyone can help me?

I had all these tabs open in private browsing but then it suddenly closed. I don't get any crash reports or anything, it just closes as if I'm the one who clicked on the 'x' - my cursor was nowhere near it. I thought it might have something to do with my touchpad but I can't find any solution to this online. There are certain ways to close apps in Windows 8.1 but it requires me to move my mouse to the top right corner which I don't do.

I tried different swipe actions on my touchpad while using firefox but nothing happens. Private browsing just closes on random occasions.

Sometimes I'm using private browsing and when I click on a different tab, instead I've been switched to firefox in non-private browsing mode (although my tabs don't move over, it just switches to that window).

Normally, when Firefox encounters a link with a pseudo-protocol that it doesn't know how to process (such as iTunes store links, which Apple only wants you to open with iTunes), usually Firefox puts up a "Launch Application" dialog each time, which allows the user to choose a program to use for the URL (or, for the way I usually use this dialog, to cancel the attempt to act on the URL completely) - unless you check the "Remember my choice" option, in which case it will stop asking, but put an entry on the Applications page of the Options dialog, in case you want to change the chosen action in the future. However, in the case of the new Windows store URLs, I don't get that dialog and I don't have an entry in the Options; I automatically get thrown off the Desktop and into the Windows store app every time, with no obvious way to change this behavior. What's different about these URLs (or about Firefox's reaction to them) that won't allow me to modify or abort this action?

Hello, I am using a c# program to send Firefox some commands.Everything works great, but sometimes when I send a -new-tab command like: "firefox.exe -new-tab http://www.google.com"

Firefox freezes for few seconds before opening the new tab.I tried removing all the parameters from the command and just send "http://www.google.com" to the system while Firefox is set as the default browser, and the same problem arises again.

I also tried doing the same while Firefox is in safe-mode and still the problem appears sometimes. How can I troubleshoot this and know what makes firefox freeze for those few seconds?.

Thanks in advance

I was happily using Firefox & though it bombproof. Yesterday I tried to update, the update went through the process right until the end and then said something along these lines: *****installation interrupted****

So far I have tried these things: Offline installer, it just extracts then does nothing. Safe mode, then try the installer, same thing. Tried to uninstall firefox and delete anything on the computer that was firefox related. Tried rebooting of course. Kept trying the installer several times, also tried version 26. Run glaries & Iobit registry and system cleaners. Tried some solutions mentioned on this forum such as the "temp" folder tweeks. Still no progress.

I really really like Firefox and do not want to have to use IE.

Please help :)

Accidentally (2 days ago) deleted my firefox browsing history by running CC Cleaner on windows 8.1. The index.dat reader I use tells me that Win 8 doesn't use such files anymore. The "places.sql" file in my profile folder has all my history in it. But it still doesn't show up in the history tab or the search bar (the dropdown display of matches, when I type a few characters) i.e the browser acts like there ain't no history. The history tab shows just 2 days' history !! yelp!!
