Even after updating Firefox I can't seem to ever find a way to close the history window once it is opened to see all history???

There is no button to close it anywhere. The top of the history window looks to be missing always and there is no bar with any buttons for action so it always stays open. The only way I can close it is to close firefox and reopen the app. Thanks

Hi, Separate Security Issue, please update your Flash 23.0 r0 Flash Player Version: Current Version Step 1: Select Operating System Step 2: Select A Version (Firefox, . . . .) Note: Other software is offered in the download. <Windows Only>

Suggest backup : please try a Refresh but Note that this does more than uninstalling and re-installing does. Normal uninstalling does not remove some preferences which may have become corrupt. Please Refresh but do this 1st: Delete your Cookies and Cache and TEST.


TEST....... If no issues then Extensions which need to be added back in 1 at a time and tested ..... Or it is your Profile : Make a new one and test ...:

If is your Profile :

Note: Any customization will revert back to default, you will also need to reinstall Extensions.

Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.

Try to close the window via Command+W.

Try rename/remove xulstore.json and if present delete localstore.rdf in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed to reset the window settings.

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
