I've had to replace my C:\ and want to pull my Bookmarks from Sync. I presume that using Sync, actually stores my Bookmarks etc. in the cloud somewhere, so how do I go about pulling them back down out of the cloud to sync with my "new" computer?

I've also upgraded the OS from Win XP to Win 7

Thanks for your time.

I am getting over a hundred PUPs on Firefox as well as on optimizer pro and my searchdial. Do I need these programs and if not how do I get rid of them. Is a PUP a popup?? Adwcleaner was recommended. What is it and how does it work? I hope to hear back from you very soon this time.

Why does FF 28 once again try to play an mp3 file in a tab instead of asking me what to do (save or launch VLC)?

No settings change from 27 where all was fine. plugin.disable_full_page_plugin_for_types still contains "application/pdf,audio/x-mpeg,audio/mpeg", the media.windows-medi… (read more)

No settings change from 27 where all was fine. plugin.disable_full_page_plugin_for_types still contains "application/pdf,audio/x-mpeg,audio/mpeg", the media.windows-media-foundation.enabled is still set to "false", and the mime types are all set to "ask". Is there a reason why these settings are being ignored in FF 28? Major pain in the neck to have to save something and then run it in VLC as opposed to just being asked from FF as I was until 15 minutes ago when I restarted FF and the upgrade happened.

I also just tried this with a pdf and it opened in the current tab. When I set FF to "ask" about pdfs instead of "preview in Firefox" I got the dialog asking what I wanted to do. Since the plugin.disable_full_page_plugin_for_types already included "application/pdf" I don't know if it should have previewed in FF as I don't know how the different settings interact, but to be honest I'm okay with that behaviour. It's the mp3 starting to play in a new tab (or, rather, attempting to play as I have Flashblock installed which stops this) that really bothers me.

Mozilla's new CEO donated $1000 to Proposition 8. on his personal blog, he states that he refuses to discuss the issue unless we know him personally.

Well, fine. You don't have to talk to the millions of netizens who find this donation disgusting. We'll just all flee for the exits, and start using Opera or Chrome or any of the many alternatives to your product. After you lose a significant chunk of your business, perhaps you'll feel a bit more talkative and explain yourself to the families you hurt.

Brandon Eich, I'd like to donate some money to dissolve your marriage. I'd like to force you to divorce your wife, and lose custody of any children you might have. That's what you did to all those Californians. Applying the Golden Rule, you should be willing to have what you have done to so many others applied to you. I'm sure your family will be delighted to hear the news.

I have just downloaded the Opera browser. I will uninstall Firefox in a few minutes. Until I hear that you have left Mozilla, I will not again use any of it's products. I will make it a point to advise others to follow my example.

Unfortunately, I need to find a new browser now. Can you suggest a browser that comes without the Prop 8 hate of Brandon Eich?

Your recent statement regarding your new CEO Brendan Eich's anti-LGBTQ views, does nothing to take responsibility for his actions.

Until Mozilla takes real action, such as removing him from the CEO position, or from Mozilla completely, I will continue to search for a new browser.

This is a perfectly reasonable request. In over 30 US States it is legal to fire LGBTQ people, just for being LGBTQ people.

Since Brendan Eich refuses to even discuss his anti-LGBTQ views, your statement as well as Mr. Mark Surman's, Mozilla Foundation Executive Director, statement are viewed by many as complete Public Relations propaganda.

I am very disappointed in your organization. To promote someone to CEO, who views LGBTQ people, or ANY group of people as second-class citizens and funds attempts to keep us/them so, is an action that you need to reverse quickly or lose your entire justice conscious community base.

By the way, I have been loyal to your products since the end of "NetScape" (before AOL's purchase of it). I only hope that Mozilla will remove Brendan Eich from any leadership post quickly, before the millions of LGBTQ people and our justice-minded supporters, world-wide, bring about the collapse of Mozilla.

Please act quickly.
