Sometimes my wifi connection is choppy (darn that microwave popcorn!) and I hate it when I'm in the middle of reading the links in Drudge and it reloads....sometimes shifting the layout a bit or just hanging while it waits for some adserver to respond.

Is there any way to stop this from happening? Tried Freezing the tab. And for some reason, firefox is not preventing this page from automatically reloading like it does others.

Any ideas?

http://i.imgur.com/4wEBsYx.png

that force me to use another browser when i want to google and look for things in google. i tried and delete that Mozilla folder, it slove the problem, but all my work is in this folder :( then i tried to creat another folder and add bookmark and passwords, extensions one by one,, i did save the bookmark, but the only way i found to save the passwords didn't work by using ( Password Exporter 1.3.1.1) extension, because it doesn't work on firefox 39.

so is there any way to fix this without removing the ( Mozilla ) folder?

thank you

I chose the option to get Firefox to perform better than it had been doing. (I like my escargot with garlic butter not on my laptop.) the default is to hide the toolbars - no useful option shall go unscrewed - and I can't get back to the prior version nor get the toolbar back. Would love to know how to get out of this mess please. thank you.

For example, EZDOWNLOAD does not appear to be a Mozilla product. I scanned the Terms & Conditions and failed to find it to be part of Firefox, even tho the FF emblem is present in the ad. This and other such products I encountered today seem to be aggressive and in-your-face advertising which I am suspicious of, since they allowed me no option to escape, and because I had to go thru Internet Explorer to get to Mozilla. This is all on my wife's computer for which the hard drive failed, so I have to reinstall nearly every program she needs. Back over the years I have installed FF on other computers without these complications I encountered today.

Running XP/SP 3, with FF 4.0.1. Flash v 11 is not supported, so I downloaded and installed Flash 10.3 from Adobe archive. Installation appears successful, Control Panel sees it, but it does not show up in FF. Trying to install the exe file from the plugins window does not work - I get a 'file is corrupt' message. Restarting the computer did not help. Thanks

Hi I have used firefox with the nasa night launch add on coupled with stylish night launch add on and had the complete desktop black with the google sign in the centre for a while now. Well i got a virus and had to re- install my OS and have forgotten the right version of firefox to use to get things back to normal, the stylish NNL wont work with the up to date version of firefox (22) - but for some bloody reason it worked with my dads windows 8 no problem WTF! I know it worked for version 4 but i cant update firefox because the bloody idiots dont keep on top of what their clients like and adjust things to let the great stuff (NNL) continue to be used im extremely agitated by this so if some one can advise me on what to do, where to get it and why they give you great things and then shit on you later?

Yours Sincerely

OK. I found an answer in a thread here but it is already closed. I have an additional question. The moderator said there: Quoting: Depending on what you want to do there are a couple of options.

If you want to replace the bookmarks on the other computer with the bookmarks from your desktop, use the method in this link to backup the bookmarks to a file and then restore them on the other computer - https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Backing+up+and+restoring+bookmarks

If you want to add the bookmarks from the desktop to those that already exist on the other computer, you need to export them to an HTML file, and import that file on the other computer. See these links for details:

   https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Exporting+bookmarks+to+an+HTML+file
   https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Importing+Bookmarks+from+an+HTML+File 

I want to do the second one - "add the bookmarks from the desktop to those that already exist on the other computer" The problem is that my Firefox is version 4.0. I read somewhere in the bookmarks topics that I should have done nothing before upgrading to version higher than 12. The thing is my computer is 8 years old and I have only 512 MB RAM. There is no way to upgrade more that v.4.0. My computer can not handle it.

Any suggestions? Can I export and import with v.4.0 safely?

I'm using the addon in my firefox toolbar to print preview website data then append to a pdf file. Sometimes I am distracted, then can't remember if I've gone through the process and printed/appended the page to the file. It would be helpful if there was a way that the print preview window would close after printing thereby confirming that the process has completed. Thanks in advance.

Ok so it started few days ago( when v 15 was new version), 1) firefox lasted at max a minute before crash saying firefox encountered unspecified error and will exit. Then the send crash report box would open. 2) When it was working; my muse kept hanging, like if you unplug it and then plug it in, no problem on other browsers with same sites but on fox it did.

Remedial steps taken: 1) I disabled all addons and extensions no dice. 2) re installed it using v 15 then 16 beta then 16 today no dice 3) Re installed windows and installed Firefox works fine but when i import my stuff from backup even without addons and extensions (using mozbackup) it starts the problems again. repeated step 2 but still zip.

I uninstall it and install version 4. import ALL settings even plugins extensions addons everything and it is working like a charm.

why on earth does newer versions have a problem with it.? they are supposed to be more resistant to crashes.
