I just had to refresh Windows 8.1 and somehow I got my old expired bookmarks from Internet Explorer put into Firefox and I lost all my current FireFox bookmarks and cannot get them back by syncing as syncing does not work. I need to get back all the bookmarks I saved in Firefox the last couple of years. I tried resetting Firefox and starting in safe mode and sync will still not work. Will I get an email or how do I find if someone answers?

I have 3 firefox windows with multiple tabs in each, but the main one (and sometimes others) freeze and preclude browsing showing a box saying "A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.

Script: chrome://fctoolbar841468a1d7f44bd384e6bb0f13a06c64/content/fctoolbar.js:1" What stops the script? I gather it's not to do with Google Chrome but FF's internal template for web pages. So, an FF shortcoming, inability to cope, but with what? AFAIK, all software is up to date. I've restarted FF, restarted the laptop, but still the FF problem persists. What is causing it?

Why will Firefox allow me to have multiple tabs available, but not allow me to switch between tabs, and can only look at a new tab by closing the previous one?

Whenever I open a new tab, it appears on the tab bar where it should, but if I click on it nothing happens, the tab won't open, and I can't switch between multiple tabs. The only way to get to a new tab is to close the one I am currently on, and even then it will only open the next tab in order of precedence, so I can not even choose which tab is the next to view. This problem is making it impossible to use firefox as a research tool which requires fast switching back and forth between multiple tabbed pages simultaneously.

They also have "This website does not supply Identity Information" if you hover over the fav icon (where padlock should be.

The Technical Details are in Firefox 3.0 windows 8.1 "websiteaddresss" uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)"

In IE 11 Windows 8.1 There's no error but also no padlock or security info at all

In Windows 7 there's just no padlock and the same hover over message

Google chrome in windows 8.1 shows every thing as being OK and secure and viewing security info Shows "the identity of this website has been verified by USERTrust High-Assurance Secure Server CA but it does not have public audit records."


Please Don't Suggest Installing Certificates on my system I cant have every potential visitor to these sites doing this.

So is this a Bug in firefox 30 or windows 8.1 or with the actual certificate or cert providers ? If with providers then what do they need to do in order for it to work without errors in any browser ?

be able to do this or similar in firefox

If your printer is Cloud Ready, follow your manufacturer's provided instructions or see setting up your Cloud Ready printer.

To connect your classic printer, enable the Google Cloud Print connector on any (non-Chrome OS) computer that is already connected to your printer and able to print. You'll need Google Chrome to be installed on the computer. If you're using Windows XP, make sure you also have the Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) installed.

Once Google Chrome is installed, follow the steps below to enable the Google Cloud Print connector in Google Chrome.

   Log in to your user account on the Windows, Mac, or Linux computer.
   Open Google Chrome.
   Click the Chrome menu Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
   Select Settings.
   Click the Show advanced settings link.
   Scroll down to the “Google Cloud Print” section. Click Manage.
   The next screen will show a list of devices already registered with Google Cloud Print, and new devices available on the network.
   In the "Classic printers" section, click Add printers.
   You'll see a confirmation that Google Cloud Print has been enabled. Click Manage your printers to learn more.

The printer is now associated with your Google Account and connected to Google Cloud Print. You can print to this printer using Google Cloud Print whenever you’re signed in with the same Google Account.
