First, the problem does not occur using Chrome or Safari. On one site I visit regularly I am no longer able to use the PM and comment functions. I have checked with the site's webmaster and am confident the problem is not at their end. Suggestions short of deserting Firefox?

I've been trying all day to get to Amazon. No go. I've checked here, and found old threads about this problem. I've tried what was suggested in them, but still not able to open Amazon. There was another site that I could not open, also, with the same error message, but I cannot now recall what that site was.

Please help! I need to check on an order from Amazon that I placed just yesterday.

Hello - Firefox Bookmarks are wonderfully intuitive and hardly need the well written instructions. However, in Manage Bookmarks, I search and find the Bookmark I want but can't see or find which folder it's in. Thus I can't sort it or move it to another folder. A column in search results showing Folder would be fabulous!

Hi - When I select "Add Bookmark" from the Bookmark dropdown menu on the menu bar, the popup menu to select the location (folder) to place the bookmark does not open. The bookmark is created, but it is created in the last place that a bookmark was added. I can use "Edit Bookmark" from the menu bar to open the pop up to a select location after adding it and am able to select a new location. This started several days to a week ago. I don't know if it correlated with an update (or anything else). Thanks!

I used Apple Migration Assistant to move the entirety of my wife's old iMac (the old computer won't accept updates, so her machine was not secure) to a new one. The migration operation appeared smooth and essentially perfect.

Somehow my Bookmarks have overwritten my wife's (years ago, I turned Synch = ON, was that it? Synch is OFF now). The bookmarks are still OK on the old computer, so how do I locate and move that info to the new machine "AND BE SURE TO GET IT RIGHT"? My wife is the family business manager, so her bookmarks are Insurance, Banking, Healthcare, etc.

I've done some searching, but there are thousands of posts, I can't wade through all of that.

Yesterday the You Tube display changed for no apparent reason. The thumbnails got bigger...only 4 to a page and the display after clicking on the video results in most of the screen being filled by the video....suggestions are now in a thin column down the right hand side. Comments can only be accessed by clicking an almost hidden button at the bottom of the screen and I can no longer see or access the download button provided by firefox extensions. Both safari and chrome are showing the display as it always has been...ie normal and usable. Does anyone have any idea of what is going on. Even though I took screenshots in jpg to show exactly what has happened I cant upload them as the files are still too big Thanks in advance

I have many (>50) tabs open in a window - and need a better & easier way to rearrange them than by mouse-dragging them

I keep many tabs open, as a part of many activities I work on, all within my primary-use window. Additional windows contain other secondary clusters of pending projects. When trying to rearrange my work (=tabs), dragging a tab with the mouse across 50 other tabs is quite cumbersome and difficult to find the right place to sort it into. I'm looking for an easy way, like in Powerpoints slide-sorter where you can see 50+ slides in a matrix grid layout, or in the Mac OS Finder, where you can see thumbnail pictures and rearrange them. Mouse-dragging is great and much appreciated, but has its limits when dragging the tab "far" across the tabs to a new location many tabs away. Solutions would be most appreciated. Thanks. Robert.

Hi! I use Firefox on a Mac and have the latest version installed. Since I come from Germany, I would like to use the German spell checker. I have already downloaded the German "Language Pack" and it is shown in the add-ons. However, I cannot choose the language when I write and want to use the correction. It still only says english. I rebooted my Mac and quit an re-opened Firefox, too.

I had accidentally deleted the email address I use from my email server before trying to sign back in to Firefox Sync. I added it back, and made sure that it works. However, it is impossible for me to sign in at all any more because I'm getting the "Your Email was just Returned. Mistyped Email?" error.

Please remove my email address from the bounce list so that I can sign in.
