I'm trying to use the forum to resolve a couple of problems but I can't find a way to search the forum contents to see if my issue has already been addressed.

This forum seems to be structured differently than any other forum I've used on the internet. Am I missing something?

Where's a 64-bit Firefox?

This question was probably asked before, but I guess it's important to keep asking so that the developers will realize that this is actually important.

I'm running a 64-bit Windows 7 for a few years now. I'm not sure if they even make 32-bit processors anymore. Any new PC you see advertised comes with Windows 8 64-bit. Both versions of Windows come with 64-bit IE. To be honest, the 32-bit IE is not only included, but is also default, but this is for the sake of backward compatibility. Opera is available in 64 bit, and so is Firefox, but only for Linux and Mac OS.

So where's the 64-bit Firefox for Windows? For years we've been hearing about plugins. Now, both Flash and Java are available in 64-bit. 64-bit Nightly works perfectly, I run it for years without any problem. Third-party builds also exist and work fine. So why not make an effort and promote the 64-bit Nightly higher up the production chain?

Sometimes we hear about "other priorities". But let's be honest here - what other priorities? I'm not sure why would I care about HTML5 - YouTube already works, and I don't see why should I care if it's in Flash or HTML5. Same about most other "cutting edge" features. I don't think I notice them. But I do notice that I have to run a 32-bit application on a 64-bit machine. Some people ask - what's the advantage of using 64-bit Firefox? I ask, why should I run a 32-bit application on a 64-bit machine? Just because it works? That's just not good enough.

So, enough with the excuses, just do it! That's what people are waiting for, not the "Firefox OS" (now why would I buy anything from a "proudly non-profit" company?)!

I'm not sure what I did to cause Firefox to do I GUESS a BACKUP. Since I now have a folder named "Old Firefox Data" what do I do with it? Do I need to somehow re-instate all that is in this folder back into my Firefox Browser? Or, do I need it at all? What am I missing here? No explanations, no guideance, no direction as to what to do or how to do it from Firefox or Mozilla. I can't even tell for sure IF I AM MISSING ANYTHING WITHIN MY WORKING FIREFOX BROWSER NOW THAT WAS SAVED IN THIS BACKUP orrrrrrrrrrr not? lescot lescot@sbcglobal.net

Hello, recently I have noticed that when I type in my address bar, I get results that I have not seen before. When i type in "facebook", the facebook page comes up in my address bar, but also in bold black I see a mangifying glass like its a recent search i did, and it just says facebook. When I click on it it gives me a bing search for facebook. How do i remove these bing search suggestions from my address bar? Depending on what im trying to navigate to, i get anywhere from 3-10 searches and I can't see any of my history to navigate.

How do I switch from Firefox Yahoo Edition version to generic Firefox 25.0.1

When I updated to Firefox 25.0.1 for Mac (running 10.6.8), it seems to have created the Yahoo Edition version of this latest update, and that's not what I want. I prefer a standard Firefox homepage and Google search. Now the "default home page" is this Yahoo configuration, and I can't seem to change it. The Preferences don't help since Restore to Default just confirms the Yahoo version, with no way to switch. What do I do to get out of this yahoo version?

Oops, your post duplicated here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/981630

SPECS: OS: Android v4.? (not sure how to find the version) Web Browser: Firefox for Android v.26

PROBLEM: According to what I have read when searching for help there is supposed to be an icon that looks like three virtical dots (next to the bookmark icon (star in the upper right side of the browser)) which, when clicked is supposed to show the main menu. On my screen there is no such icon for the main menu at all anywhere on the screen. (If someone can post instructions on how to show a screenshot in this thread, I could provide one).

QUESTIONS: 1.) How can the main menu icon be foeced to be shown? 2.) Is there any other way to access the main menu in the Android version of firefox if that "3 dot" icon is missing?

NOTE: about:config appears to have been crippled in the Android version of firefox such that there appears to be no way to list all the settings as once, as was the default view in the desktop version of firefox.

I'm trying to get the Sync code on my android device in order to retrieve all my bookmarks from my main computer to the tablet pc. The directions on the Mozilla support site say to "Tap the Set up Firefox Sync button on the Firefox Start page." Well I cannot for the life of me find this button or the Firefox start page. Where could it possibly be? My tablet pc, when operating Firefox, does not bring up any such page with said button.

Hello! New Firefox user here, since I got too annoyed with IE crashing. So, I often download PDF documents from the Web. With IE, you get a pop-up that asks you to pick a location in which to save the download. I like that. But with Firefox, all I can do is download it to some "library" that I can't find on my computer or retrieve the articles from. My two questions:

1. Where is that library? On my computer - where???

2. I want the articles on a flash drive, not in some library. How can I specify to Firefox to save the article on my flash drive or desktop, instead of that library?

Thank you!
