I use Windows XP. I've set a location on Mozilla Firefox for downloading each file, but every time I try to download something, it asks me where I want to save it. I don't want to tell Firefox every time where I want to save a file. Thanks for your help. Love your browser.

If I have any Firefox tabs open when I try to restart Windows, I get the "The following programs are preventing Windows from shutting down" error, with each of the FF tabs listed.

If I click Cancel and return to the desktop, Firefox is now in a bad state. It has minimized and cannot be restored; the tabs/window cannot be closed from the taskbar, etc. Usually I have to kill the FF process in the taskbar now.

This has happened for the past two years. Today I installed Win 10 Pro and it's still happening. Make this go away!

(Windows, always running the latest stable version of FF)

At some point tonight, I'm sure the grey area at the top of my Firefox page doubled in size, & open tabs separated themselves from the Windows toolbar line. Internet Explorer offers you a simple option of unchecking the option "Show tabs on a different row", but I cannot find the equivalent on Firefox. Can someone explain this, in non computer-speak?? I am working on a small screen & this is driving me nuts!

What can I do when firefox says flash player is out of date, so youtube or other websites don't play. My laptop has Windows Vista home premium SP1 and it only is 2 GHZ dual processors- but flash says minimum requirements for new flash updates takes 2.33 or greater GHZ. Can't firefox still play with older versions of flash so computers with this limitation can still play files it used to be able to play? Firefox sometimes asks me to allow outdated flash to play, but sometimes it doesn't ask me that- is the question website dependent?

your computer info below is reporting my desktop info, and my question is related to my laptop.

just started this morning and it is annoying to the max. every site i go to has flash on it somewhere. i use linux. flash has no new update for linux. this is not my browsers decision to make. please tell me how to unblock the adobe flash addon permanently and then how to tell FF to stop checking this for me. my linux handles all my updates as needed including those for my browser. i don't need or want FF to second guess my settings or my chosen security level.

I have exported my Chrome passwords to a CSV file ( a couple of different ways) and have a perfectly good CSV file in which I can see my passwords (site, username, password) but I can't find a way to import them into Firefox. I install password exporter but it can't load the file(s). No matter what I call the fields in the CSV file, I just can't import.

I really want to go back to using Firefox but I need to import my passwords.

Does anyone have any suggestions... either an alternative to the Password Exporter add on, or advice on how to format the CSV file so I can be imported.

I visited the password exporter site and there is not much help there.

Through shortcuts I can navigate to google's webpage and then look up websites from there but firefox direct URL entry does not work. I have tried restarting in safe mode but that does not allow me to enter anything and I have tried a clean reinstallation which changed nothing.

Every time I attempt to put Youtube into Fullscreen mode Firefox crashes. The only add-on I have is U Block. I've already run a fresh install of Firefox, and it still crashes upon trying to fullscreen. I am running Yosemite on a Macbook Pro 2010. Youtube works fine in the Safari browser, and all other video types (Silverlight for Netflix) work fine on Firefox.

...since the update top ver 39, I am having issues with teh ZDNet site. I can open the page read articles, but cannot view comments or sign in to respond. When I click on the sign in icon, I do not get the sign in menu.

I have made no change to my privacy or security settings that would have caused this. I had no issue logging in from my notebook however that system is currently experiencing the display blanking out shortly after it boots up so for the time being, I am forced to use my workstation for my Net activities. The workstation is a standalone in my residence, not part of any company network so there are no company enforced restrictions. Both the workstation and Notebook use the same AV software and have the same firewall setup as well as FF plugins and add ons, so I should not be experiencing this.

I always use 1 of 2 same passwords (1 is 7 characters, 1 is 8) for non-important stuff (sorry sync, but I'm not exactly worried about some nefarious international plot to hack my sync account). I'm always signed into sync on all devices and never need my password. I'm trying to upgrade sync and it requires me to sign into my acct (even though I'm already signed in on the device I'm using). It won't accept my password even though I know it's right. It currently requires 8 characters. I suspect the problem is that my password may have been established when 7 character passwords were allowed and the screening process is rejecting my attempts because I'm only entering 7 and it isn't checking for a match. I tried both my 7 and 8 character standard passwords and neither is accepted. The 8 is rejected as wrong; the 7 is rejected because it's not 8 characters.  ???

I am using Fire Fox latest version and my browser crashes sporadically with plugin container stopped working and some unknown addons gets added to my system. I usually just remove them, but is happening more frequently now. The last unknown addons were "RespEactSeale" and "Steam Trade Helper". Some times it also removes my Adblock plus addon from the browser.
