I occasionally get those annoying popups that will not let you close the window without answering a prompt. In my experience it is best to kill the firefox process rather than answer the prompt (who knows what will happen when you click that button). However, when i use task manager to end the firefox process, the next time i start it it immediately restores the previous session, loading the same popup window, which means I can never close that window...

I have the startup option set to "Show my homepage" (it is obviously not respecting this setting)

This is a change in behavior... It used to be the "Oops there was a problem" page loaded after you killed the firefox process, which was perfect because I could choose to restore what I wanted.

Is it possible to configure firefox to ALWAYS show the home page on startup?

I made the mistake of changing from a summer theme to fall (or trying to change to fall). I went to my collections of themes in add on, picked one, the art work did not show up, I tried another after another, closed the browser, etc.. I read the article and that did not help. Right now I have a bright white with hard to read yellow text. Windows 7, newest Firefox. What do I try?

I can usually click text-links, but button links are unclickable since the last update. For instance, buttons like the one that says "Post Question" will not work on firefox. I had to switch over to Opera just to be able to click links. What has also been happening more often since the update is firefox is constantly freezing, turning white and saying "Not responding".

I was able to use ebay last night without any problems. But today it does not work.

When I try to go to http://www.ebay.com I get the "The connection was reset" page and I get this in the URL bar: "https://signin.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?SignIn&UsingSSL=1&siteid=0&co_partnerId=2&pageType=2050601&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2F".

When I click "Try Again" It either reloads the reset connection page or I get "waiting for signin.ebay.com" at the bottom left for a while then it takes me to the account sign in page on ebay.

If I click the link to ebay.com on the page I go back to the reset connection page, if I try to sign in I go to the reset connection page and this goes in the URL bar: "https://signin.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?co_partnerId=2&siteid=0&UsingSSL=1".

I can go to ebay.com using Chrome but if I go to the sign in page I get "This page is not available"

What gives?

Hi,

I've changed my account password and then I replaced all devices' passwords. After all I still can't sync between my laptop and my desktop PC. In the bottom of the page, an error message says "Recovery kay incorrect" (or something like this - I have Mozilla in Spanish :) ) I've changed my password once again, and I've repeated the next step, but still can't sync. Both PCs shows the same error message: "Recovery key incorrect".

Thank you in advance!

For years I have been daily bypassing my opening sign in page and going directly to my email page and using bookmark to get to certain websites.

Suddenly yesterday, I have to sign in every time I open and the one bookmark to Ancestry/com gets me to Ancestry.com but not the right page.

Ancestry.com says they have made no changes and think the problem must originate with Mozilla and as my now have the sign in problem, which has nothing to do with Ancestry.com, started at the same time, I too think my two problems must originate with Mozilla.

how do i correct these two problems?

According to the Firefox tour, I should be able to use the drop down menu "sign in to Sync and get back to my password list. But the menu doesn't offer me "sign in to sync" - it just shows my own e-mail address, which doesn't help. How can I access my password list, which is why I started on this in the first place?

Had set up sync & synced. A program deleted my bookmarks. Uninstalled the program and tried to recover previous sync. I choose the correct sync file but it tells me it cannot process the file even though I am logged in to sync. Tried to import an HTML file of my book marks I had exported before. I choose import book marks from an HTML file. I then go to the folder with it in it. I click on the file and tell it to open. All the dialog boxes go away and returns to the show all book marks screen. Nothing happened at all.

I uninstalled Firefox and installed the latest Firefox from your site. Have the same problem with this version also. I can open the HTML file from within the browser with no problem so the file is not corrupt.

I can log into my sync account with no problem and it even lists several older sync files but the restoring of any of them run into the same problem. It tells me it is unable to process the file. I had over 13 hundred book marks that I really need but have not been able to recover them at all. I sure would hate to have to open the HTML file then copy each and every link back into Firefox all over again.

Please help. Thanks Dave Wolfer dhwolfer@yahoo.com

i've been struggling with saved passwords since the 29 update i think which changed the behavior of password manager. today ff has auto-updated to 32.0.1 and this update has wiped my entire saved password list which is horrific to me, i've got passwords stored in there from the last decade that I've got no chance of retrieving. good lord mozilla, why are you making everything so hard for your loyal users? i really pains me to do this, but i think i'm going to switch to chrome until you've got your knickers untwisted.

is anyone else seeing this?

Hi, To see anything but bright washed-out colors and text, I had to change to a dark theme! (NASA Night Launch) But this is as good as it gets, bleached pink (should be black), text still hard to read.

- Web page ok, it's just the chrome (tabstip, address bar and other toolbars) that is messed up. - Only present on one of my computers (with FF32.0.1). - On this computer (laptop), the problem is present on two recently added external displays. (not the built-in, not previously added displays) - Only Firefox affected, no other programs running on my Win8.1update is affected. (other browsers show regular colors/text in tabstrips, toolbars, menus etc. - Problem gone while in Firefox Safe Mode. - Problem remains even if I disable every single add-on, and set "ask to activate" on every plugin.

Any ideas? Hope to be able to stick to Firefox in the future :)

After recent FireFox update, I followed suggestion to restore default settings. This required that some customization be redone but all went well until I responded to prompts about syncing.

Sync had always been automatic. I was unsuccessful logging into old sync so registered for new Sync. All my add-ons are now gone.

Is there a way to recover them?

Thanks.
