On numerous occasions, when I update to a new version of firefox or have a crash, I will lose my session restore capability. I know there's a way to create a backup of this, and would like to start doing so on a regular basis, but I'm not sure of what type of file to create and how to go about doing so. Thanks!

In attempting to save a new set of tabs to open on start-up, when I click the 'options' , option, on the 'Tools' drop-down list, I get an error message "The address isn't valid

The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded.

   Web addresses are usually written like http://www.example.com/
   Make sure that you're using forward slashes (i.e. /)."

I've used this multiple times in the past. I have recently downloaded Windows 10. Not sure if this is the culprit...

I am not tech literate. Sorry. But when i last updated Mozilla it eliminated my AOL (America On Line) toolbar. This toolbar had the locations of all my favorite places...bank, grocery store. etc. As a fix, I decided to try to use a toolbar I already have but rarely use. Cannot find instructions on how to customize the toolbar (take off all the unused buttons and add the ones I use a lot). I don't even know the name of this pre existing toolbar. It has a "Most visited" icon first.

Can someone tell me what this old toolbar is and tell me how to reconfigure so that it is able to take over for my very, VERY useful America On Line (AOL) toolbar?

since I updated to firefox 42 or the beta versions that follow until 43.0b2 which is the last version until this moment, the first run of firefox doesn't show anything, just the process running in the background. One of my trials to install showed me the importing window but it was blank and the it was stuck. the second run firefox works but if I try to open the profile manager "firefox.exe -p" it doesn't run or it shows the profile manager window blank. I downgraded to firefox 41 and it works fine but if I upgrade again it's the same problems.

(I did this on a clean install of windows 7, I reinstalled windows because I thought I messed up but the problem persisted, so it's certainly a problem with the lastest versions of Firefox)

Update : I wasn't able to reproduce the problem today, it seems that I can open the profile manager. I don't know the exact reason for the problem to get fixed. The only change I did is that I installed all windows updates.

I used to have a Dev and Stable version of Firefox on a single Windows account without any obvious problem.

That does not work with Linux (ubuntu 15.04) without extra steps. I ended up replacing stable Firefox which was not my intention.

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/developer/ does not highlight the possible issue.

If there is an issue on Linux/Mac/Windows(?) the web page should highlight the issue.

I have 2 more Gmail Accounts and Passwords. I need to be able to sign in to the Firefox Beta for Android Version Browser. I signed up with my main Gmail Account and Password, and Username. The problem is that I think that I need to sign in with my other 2 Accounts, so I can be able to Read and Sync with the GMAIL APP. I might be wrong about having to sign into the F.Beta Browser to be able to Read my Gmail messages and SYNC all 3 of my Gmail Accounts. Please let me know what I need to do,because this is the 1st time I have used the FIREFOX BROWSER FOR ANDROID. I don't like the CHROME BROWSER, and the Internet explorer Browser isn't strong enough for me to use. It couldn't keep up with me. I'll look for your Email or I would rather have you text me with the answer to my question. You can TEXT ME AT (414)-326-6953 anytime you want to. That's my only phone number and it's a CELL PHONE NUMBER.

I had used the about:config to disable the one off buttons because i think they are completely stupid and i HATE them, too much clicking, i have to click every time i want to search on something thats not google, and i hate clicking! I opened firefox today and the buttons reverted back to normal, so i checked and it was still set to false. I refreshed firefox and now the setting is completely gone, do i have to roll back my firefox, just to get the old interface i love? thats what i like about firefox was the fact that they let you use it the way you want, and I am surprised if they removed the option totaly. Is there a way to get it back? Firefox: 43.0b3 Windows 10

In about:support I see GPU accelerated Windows: 2/2 Direct3D 9 (OMTC) Supports HW H264 decoding Z: No: Failed to create H264 decoder

Driver version 327.23, video card Nvidia GT 610.

Here's my question. Does HW decoding of H264 work under any circumstances in XP? Or did Firefox decide not to implement it?

Thanks for any info

I recently installed Firefox. I could not get an add on to install. When I hit "add to Firefox", I would get an on-screen notification that it was downloading and then nothing. I tried multiple add-on's with the same results. I uninstalled Firefox and installed Firefox beta. Same thing. What am I missing?

after I updated windows10 to build.10568, firefox add-ons are removed themselves everytime I reboot my pc.

this never happened for several years since I started using firefox. (from win7, 8.1 to 10, on 4 different PCs)

I tried turning on w10's administrator account, formatting system partition and clean installing the OS, using latest beta version of firefox.

Nothing changed.

is there any clue?
