I installed Firefox and was able to import all my bookmarks from Chrome but not my saved passwords from Chrome. None of them transfered over. Why?

I intended to delete Chrome once all my data was saved in Firefox but now I cannot because none of my saved log on usernames and passwords I have saved in Chrome imported to Firefox. Is there any way to fix this? I have followed all the directions. When going to Tools/Options/Security/Saved Passwords - they are not there.

A WordPress Widget is not working on my blog. It pulls related info from a web site where I have additional posts. This widget was working before the upgrade to 31. It works fine with no issues in IE.

Here's a link to the site in question: http://www.clickclackding.com/blog/ On the right-hand side you'll see a "|" under the heading "My Collection," instead of content which would be visible in IE.

Firefox 37.0.1 crashes PC (white-screen and blue-screen)

I use Firefox on Windows 7 32bit and I updated on version 37.0.1 immediately after its release.

Yesterday, after using Firefox some time, my whole screen got white, not only the Firefox window but also the Windows Taskbar. The computer was obviously frozen, I couldn't do anything to make the PC react (I tried [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Del]). I cut off the power and restartet the computer. After some hours (I watched a movie with VLC media player, no problems there), I used Firefox again. The screen flickered every then and now (about once every minute), scrolling wasn't smooth. I finally got a blue-screen caused by some timeout-error with the graphic card driver.

My graphic card is AMD Radeon HD 5670. I updated the driver via AMD auto-detect tool and my newly installed driver version now is 14.501.1003-141120a-177997C.

Yeah, problem solved - I thought. After using Firefox today again, I got the same white screen again. I cut off the power again, started the computer again, opened Firefox and went to the same website. At the very same point on that website, I got the same white-screen again, although in the background color of that site instead of white. So it's reproducible.

The website is: https://www.douglas.de/douglas/fragrancefinder/index.html (website in German, white-screen occured after using the JavaScript-applet). However, this is not the same website that caused the crash yesterday.

The problem occurs with both OMTC enabled and disabled. If you need further information, let me know.

I appreciate you reading this. Sorry for my English, it's not that good...

Edit: I did a litte work-around. I downloaded and installed Opera and it turned out that the same problem (white-screen and total PC crash) occurs in Opera as well as in Firefox when using the very same JavaScript applet. I disabled hardware acceleration in Firefox...

Last week I downloaded Firefox and was able to use it. Apparently Firefox is best for my university work.

After using Firefox, I turned off the computer and when I used the computer in the morning I went to Safari as usual because all my bookmarks, etc are there.

Today I cannot find Firefox, no icon, no file, searching the computer did not show it.

I would like to be able to use Firefox as I used it on my PC a couple of years ago and enjoyed it, but the download was not quick, and I really don't want to have to start over whenever I want to use it.

In relation to Firefox for Android. I don't like panels so how do I get my homepage/startup/newtab page set up? I want to open up Firefox and see the website I selected, not a panel listing sites, needing extra clicks. I succeeded in removing the panels in the windows version and getting my homepage back but in Android I'm stumped.

I do CSS work within a website, and sometimes when I'm doing so, I accidentally click out of the text box and hit "back." This wasn't a problem before, because Firefox would keep everything how it was when I hit forward. BUT anymore, everything reloads, and it erases everything I had typed up, and makes me extremely irritated. HOW can I get it to not do this? I'm pretty sure Chrome doesn't do this, so if it means switching, I will, because this is really a huge burden.

Re-summary.

I'm typing things, accidentally hit back, hit forward, and everything is erased because the page reloads. I would like it to not do this, as it used to do.
