All of my saved passwords are gone. the password manager window is empty. i use the extension 'bookmark backup' to backup my saved passwords... key3.db cert8.db signons.sqlite signons3.txt and signons2.txt. i have one week worth of backups. i tried replacing those five files in my profile directory with each of the seven backups, and none of the backups will produce my passwords. i can see encoded information in signons3.txt but that file is very old and doesn't have my most recent saved passwords that the sqlite file has, so going back to that version is not an option.

I just upgraded to Firefox 3.6.8 and now every time I try to watch a video on a site like youtube the screen is black and it says 'an error occurred, please try again later.' But when I tried with a different browser called Galeon it played. If I clear the cache and then refresh the page it will play using Firefox, but isn't there a way to fix this? If it's a bug, when will a patch be out? Side Note: I use Ubuntu Linux, if that makes a big difference.

I lost my window controls; minimize, fullscreen, and close. I'm running Firefox 3.6.8 on ubuntu 10.01 and when I open up Firefox it goes full screen covering my application controls and the window has no controls to minimize, change size, or close. In other words the" __ O X " are missing, I can only close it by going to the file control and selecting close or quit.

I like to keep a few tabs open to webpages I want to revisit or read later. So it is not uncommon for me to have 1 or two active pages I'm looking at, and 20 dormant pages I won't be looking at for a few days.

Since the last upgrade, the plugin-container is taking a lot of CPU time. (it might have been the firefox process before the upgrade, but it was less noticeable).

From the help for "plugin-container" I see that adobe flash is the only currently supported plugin. So, can I pause the flash on my inactive pages so that I can save some CPU time (and energy).

I am running Ubuntu 10. This has happened with Linux Mint 8 also only not as frequently. Could be related to Java, seems to be when I visit Java or Flash sites or possibly sites that use either for advertising since sometimes it's random.

This happened

A few times a week

Has done it for months, increasing in frequency.

Every time I right click, click on file/edit/(etc), to go a page that opens a message box, click the URL box to see the previous entries I've put in, and other similar things, firefox outright freezes. I need to force quit the application.

I'm currently running Mozilla Firefox 3.6.7 under RHEL5 (2.6.18-194.8.1). Previous versions of Firefox were working fine.

I have run the application in safe mode (everything checked), deleted my .mozilla, reinstalled Firefox, reinstalled GTK libraries, and searched the internet for hours and the closest one I could find to my problem was http://support.mozilla.com/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?comments_... with no answer.

Any help or direction would be appreciated.

I have two profiles for firefox. But sometimes Firefox starts with the first active, sometimes with the second. The question is: How can I force firefox to use the profile "default" as the default profile on startup when there is no other instance running? When I want to use a second profile in parallel I use the command "firefox -P --no-profile" to start the profile selector.
