I have Firefox 23.0.1.

I am trying to import Firefox bookmarks from a json file on another disc, and merge these with my existing bookmarks.

I only have options to import an html file. I can also use restore to bring in the file, but this will overwrite my current bookmarks, and I want to merge the two.

I am running an older machine, but with a fresh install of Windows 7. Until the latest update, I had no issues with the versions of Firefox since my last OS install. Now when I am in the latest Firefox 23.0.1, I get occasional freezing that will lock the entire machine and need a hard restart. I am still diagnosing, but to date the only constant I know is Firefox. I have not experienced the same freezes using IE.

Occasionally I will think the freeze is happening when I lose both keyboard and mouse control during a Firefox session, but after 1 to 2 seconds, they both return. Typically though, it just freezes. Most times it occurs while I am away from the keyboard getting coffee or something. It is so transparent, the only thing that tells me the freeze occurred (other than loss of mouse and keyboard) is the system time still being several minutes ago.

I have seen the other forum message regarding Firefox 21 and Firefox 22, but I figured I ask in a new message regarding Firefox 23.

I have done the reset to Firefox as of last night. I reloaded Ghostery as my only Add-On, which was the only Add-On running during earlier versions of Firefox. Already this morning I have had the 1 to 2 second pause, but no freezing yet. (Now Troubleshooter has been added due to this message.)

I took the old drive out of the laptop and put it in a USB case so I now have my entire OLD hard drive as drive E ...but no applications will actually run of course. So...I want to find my OLD profile on drive E (particularly bookmarks) and copy and move it to my NEW firefox installation on drive C. Both computers were/are running Win7 64 bit if that helps. Thanks much in advance for any help.

So does anyone know how i might have got it, is it safe and how to remove it ? Thank you, Nick890

Hello. Not really an emergency, just a very annoying and weird problem. Lately, videos that use Tumblr's uploader have been playing while looking like this: http://i.imgur.com/sReXFa2.jpg?1. I don't know if this started with Firefox's new version, or if it's a tumblr only issue, but that's how it is.

Here's the weird part: Start Firefox in Safe Mode, and it plays just fine, without all that weird coloring issue. Play it after Firefox has been reset, however, and it still looks like the link above. As far as I know, Safe Mode is pretty much Firefox when reset (though correct me if I'm wrong), but without the hassle of re-downloading your add-ons after you exit it.

Another weird part?: If I downgrade to version 22, the video also plays just fine, even with Add-ons added in.

So... any ideas about this?

EDIT: I might also note that videos that utilize YouTube and other sources play just fine. It's just the Tumblr-uploaded videos that have issues.

Also, why am I asking this here if it's a Tumblr issue? Because this problem only seems to crop up in FF (I tried Chrome and IE, and could not replicate the issue there).

Running a version of Linux, the default application for PDF files is "Use Document Viewer (default)", which appears to be /usr/bin/evince. I'd much prefer to use /usr/bin/okular; how can I change the default. This question is NOT about how to change the function that is automatically applied when I access a link, in this case "Preview in Firefox", but rather to the default application that I can select when I download a file being viewed in Firefox's previewer.
