Recently my firefox has stopped re-loading all pages and tabs when I open it. It goes to the home page but does not offer to restore... which is frustrating as my laptop has been crashing a lot lately (non-Firefox related) and now I loose my tabs every time! How can I make sure it saves & reloads the pages and tabs? Thank you!

I also cannot type a URL, nothing happens when I hit enter. I cannot download anything, save a picture (Save As) or any such. I run virus scans and all it finds is tracking cookies - sometimes 900+ of those...

The only way I can go to a web-site, is from the opening Google screen or from my bookmarks.

This morning, Firefox suggested I Refresh it to speed it up. S ince I followed that instruction, now whenever I click on a link within the web page I'm on, rather than opening on a new tab, it opens a new window. I have looked in Options, and checked the box "Open new windows in a new tab instead". But still it keeps opening a new window. This is very irritating, as I am trying to work and this is really inconvenient and slowing me down. Please help me to resolve this issue

Firefox asked if I would like to "refresh" Firefox in order to speed things up. I chose to "refresh", however the "refresh" process ruined my desktop documents and the documents in the "my documents" file. Firefox put all of my documents into one enormous file and called it "Old Firefox". Now there is no way to open any single file and the huge composite mix cannot be opened at all. In addition, Firefox messed up my desktop files that I was previously working on, and scattered them around. When I tried to put the desktop file icons in order again, they moved as one enormous unit and could not be moved individually. This is a disaster for me and I hope it can be fixed. Thank you.

Thank you in advance for your help.

I have a HP 6910p running Windows Vista Business, and updated Adobe Flash to 17 NPAPI, and Adobe Shockwave Player to 12.1 and I am running Firefox 36.0.4. Adobe Flash is completely missing from my plugins, but it does appear in my program manager. I can not play any video in Firefox at all. If I go to a video site like YouTube the screen freezes then this message appears - "Shockwave Flash may be busy or have stopped responding. You can stop the plugin now, or you can continue to see if the plugin will complete."

I desperately need some help as I refuse to rely on the evil minions at Google by using Chrome which captures your every keystroke.

I have checked and both Adobe Shockwave Player and Adobe Flash are installed correctly.

Does anyone have a solution.

First of all, it's a big fat LIE that users don't need any account or to sign into anything! I don't even know how Firefox can blatantly lie about that. Users DO need an email account AND they have to sign into it in order to access "Hello." However, absolutely NOTHING happens when I try to start a conversation. Nothing. No other window, no message, no error, no nothing. So, even though Firefox is supposedly known for being Mac-friendly, I'm going to guess it is not compatible. Is that right?

I can no longer right click on bookmarks that are placed in my toolbar. When I try, I receive a small white square and sometimes rectangular box. I cannot figure out how to take a screen capture of this issue, sorry.

Example - I have a folder with a few bookmarks within located on my toolbar. I used to right click on that toolbar folder and choose to open in new tabs. It was quite handy :)

I am not having any problems right clicking on any page or any other thing on my browser.

Thank you so much for looking into it! Angie
