I have disabled all extentions, add-ons, started up in Safe Mode or tried any other suggestions placed on the forum, but still, tabs are not saved.

I don't find a "enable" or "disable Save Tabs" in the preferences

As suggested, in the profile folder I have renamed the formhistory.sqlite to formhistory.sqlite.bak and sessionstore.js to sessionstore.js.bak

No saving of Tabs. Any suggestion? Tkx Yve

The reload circle goes and stops and goes and stops when I open email on Hotmail site. Photos in emails flash (appear-disappear-reload, etc., endlessly). All worked perfectly this morning, and then this afternoon new version installed, and now it's so messed up as to be unusable on that site. No problem in IE8. Disabled ABP, and it's not causing the problem (although I did send them a report).

Is there a fix for this?

When desired site is clicked in Google www.bywill.net appears in the destination window instead of the site address listed and a different site is displayed. This happens with IE as well as Firefox. Repeated searches by McAfee disclose no viruses. They suggested site blocking but this only stops bywell displaying its chosen site.

Closing a FF4 session with multiple tabs, I am not asked to save tabs and so they don't redisplay upon restart.

In Tools-Options-Privacy I have unchecked Remember my browsing history Clear history when Firefox closes

The other options there are checked.

In Tools-Options-Tabs I have checked Warn me when closing multiple tabs.

Are my settings incorrect? Basically I want any open tabs to be reopened across sessions, but I don't want any other history to be retained.

I'm getting an error message from Firefox that says, "Something is trying to trick Firefox into accepting an insecure update. Please contact your network provider and seek help." Do you know what is going on here--what this problem could be? (I do have the latest Firefox version already installed. I have previously received Firefox error messages that say "Firefox Update Failed." However, I already had the latest Firefox version installed when I received those error messages.)

Firefox for me has been fine for the past couple of years or so. Then all of a sudden about 5 months ago, everytime i would use Firefox it would crash after browsing for about 1 minute. I uninstalled and reinstalled numerous times to no avail. I then got sick of the problem and then used IE till now. However, i heard about Firefox 4 and thought maybe this would fix it. Unfortunately, the same problem occurred! I then heard about being able to start Firefox with add-ons disabled to find any sources of problems, and i've found that the cause if Flash! It is the newest version and always has been, so i don't know what i can do, since Flash is important for most websites nowadays!?

Shortly stated - All my Google Fonts look the same in Firefox 3 (latest build) and Firefox 4 beta 9

I have tried disabling/enabling all plugins/extensions one by one and all at once.

I have tried removing Firefox 3 completely and installing Firefox 4 Beta to no effect on Google Web Fonts.

I've also made sure that Tools > Options has Javascript enabled as well as "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above" - Advanced is enabled.

I need help please, I like to do all my web development in Firefox so going between Chrome and Firefox (works in Chrome just fine) is a bit of a pain.

Here's the screenshot of how my Firefox see Google Web Fonts (btw same applies to any page with Google Fonts or Font Previewer of Google.)

Hello, and first of all thank you for reading.

After restarting Firefox 4 (for any reason, e.g. add-ons), all the custom new toolbars will be missing.

I tried recreating them with or without certain tools to see if it was a specific tool that was preventing the entire toolbar from loading. No results though.

My opinion so far is that Firefox is unable to save any setting for some unknown reason. But then again is able to save bookmarks, add-ons and history... So the problem really is with the toolbars ONLY.

I've been using Firefox for a very long time, but this is the first time this happens to me.

The platform I'm using Firefox on is a Mac with OS X 10.6. I am not sure if this issue happens only on Macs or not.

Any help is welcome! Thank you.

Firefox tells me that a site has an invalid security certificate, which I know. It asks if I want to Add an Exception and I click to add one. It pops up the Add Security Exception window and that window tells me that this site has a valid certificate and there is no need to add an exception; but I DO need to add an exception and it won't do it for me. Why? I am working in a secure test lab and use Firefox to login to our systems under test. Each time we change or add hardware we must add exceptions to login to a system. I have done this for years with Firefox but now Firefox 4 seems confused. We now need to use EI, which I would rather not.
