I just noticed that in Firefox 24.2.0esr, the bookmark star is back at the end of the address bar. Why and how? I had removed it by putting into my userChrome.css file this line:

#star-button {display: none !important;}

Why does that not work any more? Is there some other way of getting rid of the star?

When I try to send an attachment on my hotmail msn account, the line of options which contains the "Attachment" option briefly appears, then disappears so I cannot do an attachment. It's normally always there when I do a "new" email. I wrote to MSN hotmail windows, and they said to optimize my browser, but I don;t know how to do this. It does work on my other computer and also works on Safari on my Mac. Just doesn't happen on my usual Mac computer with Firefox. So, what to do?? Thanks. DK

Firefox adds account names when you log into different accounts. If you make a mistake then the mistakes will show up as well each and every time. I would like to edit the file to stop this. In the past I have deleted Firefox and re-installed it to fix this problem. I'm sure there's a better way than that.

I had to erase my mac and revert back to an older operating system. I was using Time Machine to back up my computer, so I thought it would back up my Firefox bookmarks file as well. I reinstalled Firefox, but I can't seem to find the file anywhere. I checked in this location Library/Application Support/Mozilla

I also have a Sync account, but can't find my recovery key and I no longer have access to the other computer that it was synced to.

Any ideas on how I can get my bookmarks back?

When I watch a video on YouTube, the comments section does not load. Comments do load with other browsers (e.g.Safari.)

This has occurred since the change in YouTube's comment policies, November 2013.

Google Product Forum question "Why can't I see any comments on Youtube?" showed suggestions to disable Ad Block. I either don't have Ad Block or am not seeing it in my add-ons. Is there another add-on that could be causing the YouTube comments not to load?

Cannot put item in Cart on Amazon site

In Firefox (15), Safari, but not Opera I cannot put an item in the shopping cart on the Amazon website. This problem occurs ONLY when buying an item in Clothing and Accessories, where it is necessary to specify a size. If I search and select such an item, like a pair of trousers, the section where the item is put into the cart is dimmed, and there is an instruction to select a size. I select a size and then move the cursor to the point where I can Add to Cart. But this section remains dim instead of turning bright. I cannot add the item to the cart. EXCEPT if I order a belt! A belt has a size, you must specify it, and you can put it in the cart. I DID NOT HAVE THIS PROBLEM UNTIL ABOUT A WEEK AGO, after downloading a Software Update that contained an HP printer driver. That issue got fixed by an HP tech working remotely. I have talked to Apple several times, they cannot figure out what is wrong with the Amazon site. I do NOT have this problem on a MacBookPro running 10.6.8. I only have it on a MacPro desktop machine also running 10.6.8. I reinstalled 10.6.3 on the desktop Mac from the Snow Leopard DVD and updated that to 10.6.8 (not including the HP driver on the chance that that might have triggered all of this. The inability to move "sized" items to the cart still persists, as described. Note again, I have the same problem in Safari, but no problem in Opera. I am allowing cookies and third party cookies. I have tried restarting with add-ons disabled. I have deleted Amazon's cookies and then allowed Amazon to re-install them. There is no firewall up. The desktop machine is around 6-8 years old. There are no apparent hardware problems although I only have 1GB of RAM. Could this be a firmware problem? Of course I have the workaround of using Opera or the laptop if I want to buy some socks, but it's annoying to have this inconsistency. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks. Gene
