Firefox 10 address bar and other blank fields go dead

I'm running Windows 7. With the latest version of Firefox, I keep losing the ability to enter information into a blank field (e.g. the address bar, the search bar or any blank field (like this one) on a web page). It works fine for a short while, but after a few minutes, I can't get the cursor to become "live" in a blank field. This happens whether or not I'm in safe mode and it's happening on both my work computer and my home computer. It didn't start happening until after I installed the Version 10 update the other day. I just discovered today that if I switch to a different window and then come back to a Firefox window, the problem goes away. Something is definitely amiss.

I`m citizen of Ukraine. Many people in my country speak Russian. And me too. So I choose Firefox with russian language. Russian government has started to block some sites. Looks like russian version of Firefox has started to block sites according government rules. English version of Firefox does not block these sites. Example: http://rutor.org But why Firefox block these sites for me?! It`s russian`s rules and troubles.

I used Chrome for work and Firefox for other activity. But starting from today I will use Chrome only. Tell "tnx" to russian branch of Firefox.

Whenever i open a new tab, CPU usage goes ballistic, memory usage and CPU usage for both the plugin container and firefox.exe itself shoot through the roof, and something keeps resetting my browser.cache value to above the default (and to a "user set" value). Tried plenty of different things, factory-reset, an update, disabling a few of the different plugins (can't imagine why it would be flash or adblock, though). It only seems to happen with the new tab now, whereas before i started trying to fix it, it occurred almost at random.

Several steps i could take beyond this, i suppose, but i'd like to know which is most likely to be efficacious or if this is a specific problem encountered before.

I have Windows 7 Pro on a HP laptop. The new version of Mozilla stores bookmarks in the library or some other place. I want them in the bookmark menu list. I can't move them either. Help! I can't find anything anymore. I used to be able to find them and move them. What is up with this library nonsense and other bookmark lists anyways?

Server Error in '/' Application. Runtime Error Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off". Why is this saying this and how do I fix it so i can see the site I want to see. It has let me see the site I want before...just did this today.

I had to factory reset a mobile device that had on it both the authenticator app and the recovery codes for my Firefox account. The mobile device was also the only device on which I had been logged into my Firefox account. I still know my email address (username) and the password for this account, but without access to the account in order to set the authenticator app up again, I cannot generate the required 6-digit code to login. There doesn't seem to be a way to recover my account in this scenario, but I'm hoping I may find some way asking here.

Briefly, I can get to the sign-in step where I'm asked for the 6-digit code from my authenticator app, but I have lost access to the authenticator app as well as to the recovery codes generated when I enabled two-step authentication. Is there any way whatsoever to recover my account?

For some reason, Firefox seems to be connecting to websites, in the background, that I have visited in the past but have not requested. Is there a known reason for this and how do I disable it? The web page doesn't come up but data is being transferred in the background.

Keeping in mind this is different to Amazon, Akamai and other hosting services. These are specific websites that it is doing HTTP requests to in the background for no logical reason.

Thanks in advance.

I created a sync account in June 2012 and synced it periodically. In early January 2014, I was having some pc issues so I backed up all my data on my pc and dropped it off to Best Buy/Geek Squads. My pc has been repaired and returned back to me today. However, it has been reset to factory settings, which meant I had to reinstall Firefox. Of course I no longer had my original recovery key so I had to choose the "no longer have my device" option so that I could recover the recovery key code. So now I am trying to pull in my synced data from the synced Firefox account and I see nothing. I know I am not doing something right. I am not trying to sync on a second device- it is technically the same device. I am just trying to pull in what was previously synced. I feel like a lot of the other forums are for pairing. It's almost as if once I logged into my Firefox account today and recovered the code- like there is a new account. I need to access my bookmarks- they are very important. Thanks!
