Helo!

First what caused the problem: Few days ago the C-partition of the HD-Drive with Win7-OS and firefox-installation crashed due to problems with the clusters (according to error-messages). I tried to fix the problem with chkdsk, win-repair and standard checks but did not work. Win7 starts until the circling balls appear or sometimes until the mouse-coursor on a black screen appears but stays there. The other partitions - containing data - work well as before. I recognised i can get access to the OS-partition by choosing command-prompt in the win7-repair-environment. All files and folders are still there.

I installed another HD of the same type (first as single drive) and also installed the same OS and the firefox-browser to search for advice. After that i put the old HD as slave into the PC. All partitions seems ok. but the first one with OS denys access. The diskmanagement under system-control shows no problems with any partition. All partitions are correctly identified and have a properly drive letter. Only access to the first partition wich contains the OS and firefox is always denied.

WHAT I TRIED (WANT TO DO): I started the system with the command-prompt without starting win7 (not the Win7-prompt in a window) and i copied the completely profile from the old firefox-installation on the old HD to C: on the new HD with creating all folders by hand and xcopy all files in all folders (E:\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxx.default (xxx for the characters/name firefox createt)) to a subfolder on the new C:. Then i choosed this profile by using the ff-Profile-Manager. The name of the profile-folder (and sub-folders) were exactly taken over from the old installation with all files from the old installation on the old HD.

BUT WHEN I STARTED FF AGAIN TO AN UNEXPECTED SITUATION, THE PROFILE AND ABOVE ALL THE BOOKMARKS WERE THE SAME LIKE BEFORE (A FEW FROM THE NEW INSTALLATION INSTEAD OF HUNDREDS FROM THE OLD PROFILE).

So i ask for advice how i can get the old profile/bookmarks to the new System. Or maybe - if anyone knows - how i could run the old ffox at least once again to save the bookmarks by using the bookmark-backup. (I made a backup but it was too long ago, a lot of new bookmarks were added in the last time.)

I would be very thankful for any advice/information to solve the problem.

With kind regards



System: Desktop-PC (Intel 6600 Dualcore, 2GB Ram, 2x Seagate Barracuda 320GB), Win7 64bit, firefox v37.0.1

Please reference the attached JPEGS. When I switch between tabs, the favicon image repeats behind the text. In some cases, the vertical scrollbar image is messed up, it clears up when I click on it. - Doesn't seem to affect performance, just annoying. Thanks!

Our streaming audio service has been using Adobe Flash Player since 2007. With the February 2015 release of Firefox 36 many of our customers (Windows and Mac) are seeing our Flash player hang indefinitely at "Trying connection on port 1935". In somecases reinstalling Adobe Flash Player will fix this; in other cases reinstalling Firefox will fix this; in several cases only allowing incoming connections on port 1935 (new firewall rule) will fix this.

What happened? A lot of our customers use Firefox and suddenly no joy.

Thank you!

When I've been playing YouTube videos lately, I've noticed that a bunch of black boxes have been appearing over the player interface (The controls below the video) while the video is playing. Unfortunately, I can't provide a good screenshot, as the boxes come and go too quickly for me to get them. This issue still occurs if I restart Firefox in safe mode. I think it started happening with Firefox 37.

I am using Ubuntu 14.04 with Firefox 38 and since I updated to that version of Firefox I am unnable to use SoundCloud and TuneIn Radio websites.

On both websites I get the error: media resource ... could not be decoded

I already checked this post (https://support.mozilla.org/es/questions/999164) where somebody had the same problem on Win 7, Firefox 28, but the answer there is not possible for me as my firefox doesn't have those configurations :(

I also disabled all of my add-ons, but still not working :'(

Any help, is welcome :)

After behaving faultlessly forever, suddenly with ver. 37.0.2 when I opened Firefox browser it distorted the screen so much that I had to discard it. The only time the distortion occurs is with Firefox. I have reinstalled it several times and reset it but no solution. I am now using Chrome but don't like it much. Can someone help with this Firefox problem. I can send a photo of the distorted screen as an SMS or to an email address. Local IT gurus can't explain the cause.

I'm using Windows 7 64-bit, latest version of Firefox.

www.vine.co won't load, it just shows this loading circle you can see in the attached file, forever. The website loads just fine in other browsers.

I've tried to load the website with different profiles, safe mode and even in a different PC. The result is the same.

The strange thing is that I'm able to see embedded vines in sites like Twitter, but if I click the "View on the web" link, it won't load.

Please help me.

I Have tried all the recommended solutions and so far nothing works. Is there a possibility that some other programs could be in conflict with Firefox? This problem has been ongoing for several months and my patience is wearing thin. Any suggestions, fixes or advice? Thank you

I was emailed some pdf documents. I selected to download the documents, the download arrow turned blue. I was then able to select the file. The normal browser print page opened and I was able to print. I needed to reprint the pages and this is where my issue arises. Now when I try to select the file firefox shows that it is downloading the file but when I select the downloaded pdf firefox only downloads the doc again and shows a blank page.

I'm currently at work and don't have the browser specs available.

I can't open certain links in new tab.

When I right click the menu shows the 'open in new tab' function but when I click it nothing happens.

Some links will open in new tab when I click on it directly, and I can open images in Google image in a new tab, but most of the time it doesn't work.

I already disabled add-ons and is in safe mode currently but it's still the same.

Also, nothing happens when I enter a search in the Firefox search bar and hits enter. I can;t even change the search engine on it.

Per this page . . . https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/969977

The minimum file size of the places.sqlite file is 10 MB, and Firefox increases this file in 10 MB chunks when necessary (its size is never reduced when deleting history or bookmarks). This is done for performance issues caused by fragmentation.

I was trying to figure out what:

Index / Reindex Index . . . does

I found that it only does something with this:

Are you sure you want to perform the following operation(s): REINDEX "main"."moz_annos_placeattributeindex" SQL: REINDEX "main"."moz_annos_placeattributeindex"

. . . what does Reindex Index do?
