Things are disappearing. Just now a long email I was finishing up vanished. Checked everywhere suggested. It is not to be found. Firefox Add-ons Manager page keeps popping up during my gmail activities.

When I began typing in this space, the words disappeared.

Often a big screen comes up at the bottom which I don't begin to understand. HUGE print...DEBUG is one of the words among many words and numbers.

This is driving me crazy. HELP! HELP! HELP! PLEASE!

When I search, either in the address bar or in the search bar, more and more often I am getting a "We had temporary problems searching for web pages. Search again" But when I search again, I get the same message. After closing out of Firefox and reopening it, it usually works again for the first few searches, but then returns to the "We had temporary problems ..." message.

It can't be the connection, but the past few times I've switched to Safari, and it works fine. I don't really have any idea what to do about it.

When reading web mail I get an annoying pop-up asking me whether to "allow" the page, each time I move from one message to the next. How can I stop this?

Just under the toobar a black bar appears, on the left it says "Firefox prevented this page from automatically loading", on the right is a button, "Allow" and an X to make the bar go away. However, the next message in my email list on which I click causes the bar to reappear, so I have to repeatedly "allow" or X-out the bar. Very annoying.

when i try to access certain pages it gives me a "problem loading page" error. Saying it is unable to connect. Here is exactly what it tells me...

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at www.vh1.com.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

While I was away from my desk this morning, my system had a crash ... a bad one (lost almost everything from my desktop, and all of my usual programs are acting like they've just been installed). I had a couple of FireFox sessions open with LOTS of tabs that I needed to get to, but there doesn't seem to be any "session" in FF's memory to restore. I also seem to have lost all my bookmarks. Are these "archived" anywhere? I'm just sick to have none of this stuff available.

Firefox does not reload tabs automatically at all after session restore.

I am using TabMixPlus and Session Manager add-ons in my firefox. But since almost 6 months or more session restore is not working as expected. Everytime I restore a session all tabs are created from that session but they are not loaded. Previously everytime I restore a session automatically firefox loads tabs in group of 3 tabs. So, after restoring a session after a minute or two I had all tabs loaded in that session. But now a days I need to go to each and every tab - when I open the tab it loads that. So, manually I have to visit each tab after restoring a session. It takes a long time as I generally use 30-40 tabs...

Thanks for your help.

Been playing for a while, and in the last few days it keeps crashing. It opens, then gives me a gray screen with plugin failure typed in a small box in the middle. I've uninstalled Adobe and reinstalled it, have done the firefox update and am running the latest for IOS. I play the same game on my iPhone and it works, but there are features on the computer like quests that don't come up on the phone. I've played for a few months and it's been great, now it's just frustrating.

When I click on Synced Tabs in the account menu, it says that there are no Synced Tabs, no matter how long I've been logged in or whether I've manually clicked to sync. My Sync Preferences are set to sync tabs. This wasn't a problem before I upgraded from OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) to 10.11 (El Capitan).
