Firefox recently updated, and i cannot figure out how to import my bookmarks. The article explaining how to do this has not been updated, as there is no longer an option for "show all bookmarks" to be redirected to the library.

Please assist me.

This is a pretty old machine but am keeping hold of it because it runs well with older devices whereas Windows 10 throws a wobbly.

Its got a P4 2.2GHz which supports SSE2 according to CPU-Z but it will not work. I can't find a better BIOS so it looks like I am out of luck here. any suggestions?

FFox 34.0.5 is totally unusable after the auto - update. FFox 34.0.5 is running on a Win7 Minitower PC. It starts up ok and displays my default page. I select another web page and FFox locks up and title bar = Not Responding. Have to kill the FFox window because it is locked up. Try again = same thing. If I wait several minutes, a warning box appears about a script that is stopped. How to fix ? How to roll back? previous version worked 100%. This version works = 0%.

I just logged into my 'supervisor' account (a rare thing), started some browsing... when unexpectedly two different links (e.g., one from PC Magazine) popped up 'Firefox prevented ...' and I had to 'Allow' the page to load. This has NEVER happened running in my general user account (in which I've been all afternoon, for example), and I do not see anything here in the QA that addresses why this would occur nor how to turn off both the message AND the prevention.

Quite frequently, one has to delete cookies to resolve issues with a particular Web site.

In earlier versions of Firefox, "Show cookies" was more accessible. Now it's buried -- you have to choose the faux "Use custom settings for history" option from the Privacy>History drop-down. (I call it "faux" because settings are not retained, the drop-down reverts to Remember History.)

After choosing "Use custom settings for history", the "Show cookies" button appears, then you can go about your business deleting cookies.

I cannot understand why Mozilla has made such a commonly used feature so hard to find. Why the additional clicks to see the "Show Cookies" button? It doesn't seem to be part of the so-called custom settings either -- I've selected "Use custom settings for history" dozens if not hundreds of times and I still have to dig to see "Show cookies."

This is looking like bad usability to me -- or am I missing some rationale that justifies this decrease in utility from earlier FF versions?

PS I need to delete cookies so often, if I had my druthers, I'd put "Show cookies" in the History or Tools menu.

You are losing thousands of users who get annoyed when they start seeing the error message "The connection was reset" on their favorite websites. Instead of asking users to clear their cache and perform other shamanic rituals, why don't you just fix this problem that has been around for years? Chrome never has this problem, hence there is a way to avoid it. Instead of asking the users to do x y z to troubleshoot and repair the problem, why don't you offer a simple button "Would you like Firefox to find a solution to this problem for you?" And then Firefox (not me) finds out why it (Firefox, not me) has a problem. I don't have a problem: i simply switch to another browser. Firefox has a problem.
