I have had firefox refuse to load so I downloaded a new version. I then found that I did not keep my old bookmarks. I have followed the instructions to get the stored bookmarks but I get the message that Windows cannot open the file so i asked it to find the program on the web but with no success. What do I do and am I able to retrieve the previous Firefox bookmarks? I am using XP.

When on a page I can ask to save as bookmarked page, but all my options are gone. I have to hunt for the page that I bookmarked. I no longer have the icons on my menu to select bookmark and then open the bookmark menu to choose where I want to save; i.e. toolbar or menu, etc. I did a refresh on Firefox 2 days ago and that's when it disappeared. None of the suggested helps have produced a fix.

After browsing the web for a few minutes I have thousands of files named like TMP7F9B.TMP The way these file names look they seem to be TMP (a two Hex values).tmp. Please help, I love using Firefox and really do not like the other browsers.

Starting around the 1st of the year, my Firefox bookmarks and any web pages won't load. The browser just spins out. If I quit and then restore my previous history, it works for a session. After I put my computer on "sleep", the next time I open the browser it's all spinning wheels again. Is there an update I'm missing? I'm using 50.1.0 for Mac (OS 10.10.5).

Roboform was working fine until the latest update and now the toolbar has disappeared and will not reload. I get the following message

"Can not load RoboForm add-on Please restart browser or reinstall RoboForm Incompatible module: C:\Program Files (x86)\Siber Systems\AI RoboForm\Firefox\rf-firefox-x64.dll Version: 8-2-8-8"

I have reinstalled Roboform but the problem persists. If this can't be solved I will have to stop using Firefox as my default browser.

Hello, I have enabled the about:config command media.autoplay.enabled by toggling it to false. I was wondering is there a way to tell Firefox that there are certain sites that have an exception to this rule? Such as YouTube, News, and Twitch? Similar to how you could select the controls flash has per site?

Environment: Windows 10 Pro / Firefox (Latest Version)

This morning, all our work stations have defaulted to the Yahoo toolbar on Firefox! Due to the nature of our business, we are very particular about the contents of our workstations, and do not want Yahoo in any form to be present. A representative will be contacting the Yahoo Corporate Offices to discuss other options.

The Internet displays thousands and thousands of complaints about the Yahoo toolbar volunteering on PC's, and just about as many suggestions about the method to use to remove it. After a couple hours trying many of them, they don't work for us.

We also understand that the toolbar may have surreptitiously been installed during updates or installation of other software, and are researching the origin. The question at hand is how to efficiently remove it?

Assistance from the Mozilla Community will be very much appreciated - Imageman

I will be reading pages on Yahoo and find that windows are opening behind the one I am reading without my opening them. I may have a couple open that I have opened myself and hear a video playing and not be able to find it until Iower the pages I have opened to find other pages (usually multiple ones) behind that are individual behind each other. I have no idea where they have come from.
