Hi

Very annoying, cleaning all my bookmarks on my main computer, next morning I got a clutter of all bookmarks. Copy of bookmarks as well of folders.

Only way to solve it is to make new sync ID, or?

How do I edit non address autofill data? When I autofill a form, my 1st name comes up correct but last name is all lower case, when I clear the field the Capitalized version is shown. Next time I use the autofill again the small case version appears. A similar thing happens with email address. An old email address (from a prior account) is displayed, but I cannot find any way to get rid of the old email address nor correct it. Everywhere I look on all your instructions, I cannot find any discussion/instructions on how to change Non Address Autofill data. Pleas help as I am getting tired of having to constantly manually change these fileds every time I use autofill. THANKS!!!

Often I have multiple important tabs open which are difficult to rediscover. I have the option enabled for Firefox to remember my tabs before closing. However, for example sometimes when a link gets opened from an external application (by accident), all my tabs get lost. Can I restore the session from just before it happened?

(I asked the same thing last year but got no replies and I'm still having this issue today, I tried to be as descriptive as possible but maybe it was too much text to read. I apologize)

I noticed occasionally that an odd entry might come up every now and again in the address bar auto-complete, and they always had a little blue star. Turns out that's the "bookmarks" autocomplete option. Once I located one of them, I searched through my bookmarks to try to delete it, but it is not there. I actually went through and deleted all of my bookmarks in Firefox save two, and lo and behold there are still dozens, possibly hundreds, of "bookmarked" suggestions in the autocomplete bar. For instance, woot.com; I used to have it bookmarked, but since I haven't used it in months, I deleted it. Yet when I click on "bookmarks" in the address bar search, woot.com shows up among a dozen other entries which are clearly not in my bookmarks.

I checked my other browsers and cleared their bookmarks as well, although none of them had woot.com bookmarked as far as I can tell. I deleted browsing history older than 6 months and searched through both my bookmarks and history, finding no entries for this. I went to the Options menu, Privacy and Security, and Address Bar, and disabled "Bookmarks", and found that doing so DOES in fact prevent these supposed bookmarks from being suggested in the address bar when typing.

I'd like to be able to remove these old, outdated suggestions from my address bar while still leaving the bookmarked page search function working. Where is Firefox pulling these old bookmarks from? How can I delete them?

When I visit "elofootball.com" with Firefox, "Atlético" is shown as "Atl�tico". When the page is not yet completely loaded Atlético is shown correctly for a brief moment (first screenshot without country flags). After the flags are displayed "Atlético" becomes "Atl�tico" (second screenshot with country flags). So it doesn't seem like the characters themselves aren't supported by the browser because Firefox can display them, just not once the flags are displayed as well.

Edge and Chrome do not have this problem, they just show the page like you'd expect without the � in the place of characters with accents. Any idea what might be causing this and can it be fixed?

Bonjour,

J'ai fait un nettoyage avec Avast aujourd'hui, et cela a complètement perturbé mes marque-pages : dans un premier temps, ils sont restés affichés mais je ne pouvais plus cliquer dessus. Puis, j'ai éteint mon ordinateur, et quand je l'ai rallumé, la plupart de mes marque-pages avaient disparu. Certains sont restés...

J'ai tenté de faire une restauration (datée d'aujourd'hui), mais cela m'a remis la même version.

Est-ce que vous savez ce que je peux faire ?

Cordialement, Clémentine

I have had Firefox downloaded for a considerable amount of time and had begun to use it as my daily browser, until I started experiencing issues, concerning the loading. I have experienced this issue in all cases when trying to open the browser through the desktop shortcut, other icons, and even the .exe file, and typically I will see a brief white screen of Firefox before it immediately closes again. Frustrating to say the least and a quick google provides no insight. I have attempted on multiple occasions to uninstall and reinstall, however to no avail, and have even tried to create a new profile, via the Run (Firefox.exe -P) but again with no success. Running the browser in Safe Mode (Shift) will also work for a split second with the dialogue opening and then instantly shutting. Any suggestion on a potential fix would be great.

Hi,

A firebox browser automatic update earlier today has resulted in various pages I visit subsequently crashing the browser.

It is particularly problematic because one page that now crashes is my Barclays Bank login page, which I normally check every few days.

I know that rollback of updates is not recommended, perhaps not even allowed, but surely if an update results in a page like Barclays crashing the browser then there must be a fix pending?

Please do not reply with "try another browser" or "try your phone" - I don't do banking on my phone, and find both Chrome and Edge packed with too much ad crap, making browsing painfuly slow.

I would prefer you to reply with "Here is how to fix it so you can continue to use Firefox..."

Kind regards,

R

Hello all. For the past couple months i've been able to use the web version of Google Earth within the browser with little to no issue. However, about a week or two ago I discovered Google Earth stopped working whenever I tried to use it. I would navigate to Google Earth's website, click "Launch Google Earth", and be met with this loading screen which never changes. I went to Google for help and they had me run Memtest86 on my computer, to which I found all of my RAM sticks were fully functional with 0 error or issue.

I am using the absolute latest version of firefox as well as my operating system. I am running Windows 10 on a custom built PC for gaming, 64-bit. I've tried the following:

-disabling browser addons -restarting firefox -disabling my antivirus -disabling my antimalware -restarting computer (multiple times) -disabling ALL of my browser addons

Now at first google earth wouldn't load in google chrome either, but at some point during my troubleshooting for fixing google earth on firefox, google earth began loading in chrome with no issue. As of now the only browser that can't pull up google earth is Firefox. I've attached a screenshot of the error messages I see when loading Google Earth in firefox.

Please, any and all help would be greatly appreciated. If there's anymore relevant, useful information I could provide then please let me know.
