Why can't I see all of my recently bookmarked links, or be able to put them away somewhere of my choosing when I bookmark them. What good is the recently bookmarked folder if you can only see 10 of them?

When I get an email and go to reply, sometimes I'm given the option of changing color, font size, font type, etc. and other times that entire line is not there for use. Why does that happen? I would like the option of ALWAYS changing font size and color of type when replying to someone.

"Just beneath the surface, third party trackers chase your every move. Stop them with Private Browsing. Only in Firefox. Learn more"..... THIS NOTICE WAS POSTED ON YOUR HP LATEST UPGRADE. MY BIGGEST QUESTION IS ARE YOU KIDDING ME, AND NOT IN A FUNNY WAY?!! why would i ever use your browswer again if you cant even fix the problem by not even explaining, as "learn more" only sent to a incognito window! YOUR browswer should be good enough or not, which is it?....... also, i have been having alot of problems with script errors and "not responding" lockups. firefox WAS the best, between ie and chrome but now every ntime you update theres more problems. please, one fix one time should last for a long time! And if we cant trust your browser as is, i sure wouldnt trust it incognito either. WE, the user should not have to b"stop" them. YOU the supplier, should. thanks for your time.

full system/setup/case info

The problem

I was trying to hack together some code in the Stylish editor changing the look of Firefox. I was using the Firefox built-in 'Ctrl+Shift+Alt+I' Inspector along doing this, not the DOM Inspector add-on. Then something happened!

I now have a totally blank page/Fx. I can right-click the page and go 'View Page Info', it says "about:blank" as the location.

In that window I can't do much or open any new tabs. Apart from the 'View Page Info' I also went Ctrl+N and got a new window. This window seems somewhat normal, though not everything works.

Thing is, I haven't closed and restarted the browser yet because I was quite happy with the code I had managed to produce. I'm wondering if there is a way to get it back without redoing all the steps and research.

I haven't restarted the browser yet as I'm not sure that Stylish/Fx will restore a tab with that code in it.

Can I somehow see all the currently custom rules being applied to Fx and then filter away the rules of saved userstyles and add-ons, to get the code I was working on?

Are there some temporary file where it's stored? Is it in RAM, how can I get to it?

Would be quite an interesting feat if this was accomplished. So there's a challenge for you ;)! Up for it? Accepted? Impossible?

Do you think Fx/Stylish restores the code if I restart Fx? Anything I can do before restarting to make it do so? Is there nothing I can do to save/rescue/get the code back?

Only option is restarting and trying/starting all over again?

Documentation and resources

Currently using Windows 8.1 64-bit Firefox Developer Edition 42.0a2 it's a Firefox Portable instance. So it's a Firefox 32-bit instance. about:buildconfig says:

Built from https://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-aurora/rev/48cce9628816

At some point I was asked about E10s/Electrolysis and choose to turn it on.

Google will display drop down search suggestions, doesn't matter whether you choose any as after you hit enter all you get is a blank screen with your search wording. Tried ctrlF5, the refresh arrow, reset Firefox (only using ReminderFox & nothing else), changing display 3X (both enlarge & decrease), restarts & shut down restarts, update FFox. No probs with IE. Using Windows 7.

Hi,

When I try to navigate to one specific web site (kickass.to) I get NO response. FF does seem to do a little computing and maybe some I/O but there's no other sign that FF has "heard" the interrupt. Reinstall from FF Beta tarball does NOT change the problem.

Both FF Beta and FF Released exhibit this behavior. FF Nightly does not. I do run Nightly from a different ID in order to avoid pollution of the ~/.mozilla... files.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

George...

After installing the latest Firefox update yesterday, I find that Ghostery is identifying up to 90 trackers on some websites: is this Firefox?

Some websites previously had 15-20 trackers (as identified by Ghostery); now the majority have 60+, and many have 90+ (eg. nationalnewswatch.com has 95, http://freethough… (read more)

Some websites previously had 15-20 trackers (as identified by Ghostery); now the majority have 60+, and many have 90+ (eg. nationalnewswatch.com has 95, http://freethoughtblogs.com/pharyngula/ is showing 104, and cbc.ca is up to 109 - I believe yesterday it was at 16 or 18). On the other hand, support.mozilla.org shows just 2. Needless to say, loading the websites is taking way too much time. Is this a Firefox "fix", or is something up with Ghostery? TNX, Bob
