Too many functions have been lost. I have a more up to date laptop but I'm not going to update the OS on my main desktop computer because too many other software programs would need to be updated - such as video editing and Adobe programs - which work fine as they are. Sadly my browser in future will have to be Safari or Chrome, which work fine with the current OS.

For just over 1 year now, copied text will not paste into online forums. left-click HIGHLIGHT text - right-click COPY - right-click PASTE This FireFox Browser "is always" checked for updates on a weekly schedule. I also clear cookies 2 - 5 times a week. This is becoming ver-veRY-VERY! irritating when I write a fair amount of text and try to post it but cannot. WHEN will this FF problem be fixed?

For the 9th time, I have upgraded to windows 10 and the flash plugin crashes on every page! I have updated every thing I can thing of..installed CCleaner and ran that..unchecked my accelerator..unchecked protected mode..cleared cache on everything..cleaned my register..uninstalled and reinstalled flash and anything else I could think of, per suggestions on the forum and nothing has worked! I have, however, noticed that Internet Explorer works fine, but I prefer Firefox. (picky, huh?) I am not currently running Windows 10 at this time.

What happened to the Add-Ons page, you used to have sub-categories? If you pick Appearance then pick top-rated or popular, you see every other category in the list (bookmarks, tabs, etc) I thought these would be specifically for the chosen category This makes it very difficult & time-consuming having to go through 2,000+ pages trying to find a theme.

When I use firefox and click on an image to view image, when I go to print the image I am now unable to set margins in inches it is locked into metric measurements, this didn't happen before last last update. How do I restore to use inches?

Checked troubleshooting section and under user profile it shows margins for printer at 0.5 inches but page size at 279.00 height and 215.00 width.

I rolled back firefox to previous version and still have problem.

I know all the risks and I've read https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-older-version-of-firefox

Unfortunately when I go to the link w/the older versions, it doesn't say how to install. I'm not a techie, so I have no idea what to do with the files.

I only want to go back to where I can still block 1st party cookies.

I've checked the add-ons. From what I've read, since ff took away this option, none of them have anything that works.

Wanting to register my frustrations with the FF integrated version of Pocket. Problems with the new integrated version of Pocket: 1, The visible recognition that a site had been added to Pocket no longer works. Prior to integration, the Pocket icon turned red when a site was added. Now there is no way to tell. 2. Pocket dropdown next to icon has been removed and added to Bookmarks. It is beyond me to understand who thought this was a good design concept. It's cumbersome and annoying. I don't have bookmark tab open on my browser so finding it is unnecessarily time consuming.

On my Mac, I rolled back to the old version of Pocket some time ago, yet l have the integrated version on my PC desktop. It drives me crazy and I want to roll that back too, I'm just not sure if it's still possible?

I have used Firefox on several computers for years. Suddenly on one of the computers I am being harassed to verify my email to activate something called a Firefox Account. I do not remember asking for this account, or entering any information to get one. I don't want to sync anything, I just want a browser. I have found no way to get rid of this thing, I have refused to verify my email, and it will not go away, It also took three resets of a password and retrieval of a username to get this far to be able to ask a question. In my experience uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox is no help because all of its previous settings and setup come back with any reinstall. If anyone would be so kind, please tell me 1. How to get rid of this Firefox Account nonsense and 2. Is there a way to uninstall Firefox so that ALL of it including settings, add-ons, plugins, preferences -- EVERYTHIG is eliminated? I like Firefox, but not being able to get any help from Mozilla is very frustrating. Thank you in advance. R.

Why after being signed in, am I asked to sign in, and then told I'm using an incorrect password, when I just used it to sign in the first time??? I'm just trying to respond to, or ask a question in the forum, and now I can't sign in .... again. What's up with that?

I see on the Add-ons Manager page, this:

"Add-ons is switching to Firefox Accounts for login. Sign in now to transfer your account."

Yet when I go to sign in (again), I'm told it's incorrect. Then if I'm about to hit the "reset my password" button, it warns me that: "When you reset your password, you will lose any Sync data that is not on one of your devices. Learn how Sync works."

Why is this such a confusing mess? Why must I sign in, when I'm already signed in, etc.???

I'm not even a member of this site because I believe that it is phony. I get all kind of views on my profile that is still listed. I know one of the people that is still listed on your site. Quit three months ago we talked regular. Half of the people that do view by site, I have contacted before, and they never returned my message, so why would they keep viewing my profile, especially since I am not a member of this site.I'm going to seek legal advice on why this site is not truthful, and the computer does everything. They take your money and you cannot get no response from no one. It takes an act of Congress to even get this box to put this message in. Why can't you send me a phone number so I can talk to someone come and quit hiding behind the website. Step up and be counted for.

Firefox Passwords Not Being Saved

Running Firefox 45.0.1 on Windows 10 Anti-virus: Avira Anti-Virus Free Firewall: same

As stated, Firefox is not saving my passwords (or form information or maintaining Sync connection). I HAVE already read through the FAQs and other community questions and answers. I do have a Master Security password. I do know the password. But passwords are not being saved. I cannot find any other software that would interfere with this. I cannot find any setting in my anti-virus/firewall software (Avira) that has anything to do with this Firefox function. I am NOT using any other password saving software or extension or other application. There is no issue with the password manager exceptions file.

I do NOT have a problem with password saving on my Win XP PC. I DO HAVE SYNC SETUP AND TURNED ON but this does not populate the password manager on the Win 10 PC. It does sync everything else (although not all extensions seem to be configured to share all setup data and usage information, particularly tab group extensions).

Also, on the Win 10 machine, it periodically loses the Sync connection. This is very annoying. How do I prevent this? It never happens on the Win XP computer.

Also, on the Win 10 machine, it does not seem to populate form data boxes (name, address, email address, etc.) when I visit websites. Why? Is this also a Firefox issue or is this an issue with the individual websites? It doesn't seem to happen very often on the Win XP computer.

Please help.

Let me try again:

First: I'm running Windows 10 and have the LATEST Firefox ver. 45.0.2. I HAVE read through the support forum and have not found a response that addresses the issue(s) I'm having. IF YOU RESPOND, PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE MESSAGE FIRST so you know all of the steps that I have *already* taken.

Second: Firefox is not saving login and password information on this computer (this has been ongoing for months).

Third: Firefox is not Sync-ing login and password information with my Firefox account. Also, it periodically loses the Sync connection and I have to re-enter my password. (I also have a Win XP computer running Firefox ver. 45.0.2 that has never had a problem retaining login and password information.)

Fourth: BOTH of my computers have Firefox setup IDENTICALLY--all the same settings, both are logged in to the Firefox account.

Fifth: Both of my computers ARE Sync-ing all other data (bookmarks, extensions, etc.--all of the check boxes in Settings are "on").

Sixth: I have reinstalled Firefox on both computers. I have quadruple checked that all of the settings are the same. The ONLY thing I haven't done is a complete uninstall of Firefox on the Win 10 computer (all files--exe, data, profile info, everything). I really loathe the simple, nuclear option "necessary step" so often given to solve any problem, whether or not it really needs a sledge hammer when a tack hammer would do fine. Know what I mean?

So, finally, PLEASE help!

Thanks for your reply Cor-el.

I did not create my own website, but I do have a small amount of knowledge that allows me to make minor alterations. When I purchased the SSL certificate from HostPapa they installed it for me. I assumed that they altered the website to accommodate the https and padlock.

How do you add the https protocol ?

Although my website does not handle financial transactions, it can be accessed from another website and Google are pushing, for security sake, that all affiliated websites should be SSL certificated. Hence the reason for going down this route.
