I have lost years of bookmarks upon upgrading from 3.5 to 3.6. None of the suggested solutions on forum have helped and in fact I don't see any responses from Mozilla just other users. I've reinstalled 3.5 as some other users said that reinstated their bookmarks but it did no good with mine. What's up Mozilla? Are you going to leave us all hanging out to dry without a fix to your really bad mistake. Help your users or you are going to lose many.

I was adding my husb as a user with no passwords ever , except for certain programs we are both disabled. I restarted the computer and in the next session I unzipped a folder attempted to re-zip it would not allow me to do so. I shut the system down for the night the day I was missing. My email is the only thing I use in live and I cannot access it. If there is anything you can do I would sincerely appreciate. Respectfully, Donna Treece PS If you could call me or fax but call before faxing. 352.357.6970 i do not know what you are asking for below, I'm running Windows XP svc pk 3, 32 bit.

When do you fix the failure of firefox to be able to copy and paste after it's closed? Worthless browser otherwise.

It's interesting, the memory leak is because of the cross-platform of firefox, and that appears and excuse by firefox not to find a solution and work around. This also seems to be part and parcel to firefox not quitting, hanging, and closing out of nowhere. But leave it to the geniuses at Mozilla to ruin what was once a great browser, and skirt their responsibility to the people they promote this too. Maybe Mozilla no longer wants the internet to be free, as frustrating users only makes them think it'd be better to buy a product than keep using something the developers of just ignore and never fix, looking for excuses out of their responsibility after promoting it as an alternative to what comes free in windows and other operating systems.

And, to add to this, if I close firefox after copying a URL, and Firefox actually closes instead of sitting in memory, I cannot paste the URL into Word. Imagine that. Bug filled, ridden, and destroyed by the new age of "coders" who are so impressed with themselves they have to destroy the work of previous coders, work that actually did what people wanted and gave them privacy as well, efficient too.

It's okay, you're all professionals, incompetent, but someone gave you a sheepskin or whatever and you're sure you're a professional now.

Think it's time to work on firefox 4.0 and actually make a brand new everything that works from the ground up. I am sure it'll be ready by the next iteration of Windows after 7.

Otherwise, fix this product, make a workaround or plugin to the cross platform structure your using, but fix it nonetheless. I loved firefox, but whever joined the team at 3.0 and has led the development of 3.5.X and after, has only ruined a great thing with their own personal ideas and likely ego of certainties that have proven unstable, and destructive to Mozilla's purpose of keeping the internet free.

Note: This has been happening since 3.5.X, and the versions I have used later than the one I have only have more problems, never fixing the memory leak, and just leave me disgusted, to think how poorly coders have become, dirty and willing to put out an inferior product so easily. They seem to have no personal pride or any conviction to do right by themselves or those they claim to be creating a product for, more involved in politics and "that's the way it is" trouble shooting in nullity than actually earning their pay. Maybe it's that cancer of doing just enough not to get fired that they've got. Sure seems like it.

I deleted files from my bookmarks after clicking them open, copy-pasted them all on Microsoft Word one file after another. I tried to save it in my memory stick but the sand dial keeps on and on and on and on. I clicked something to stop it and re-try but I guess I clicked end task. So there. Is there a chance I can recover those files? It took me several months to save those files. I know I can research again but that was different because those were my selections when the topic was still hot in my brain.
