I love how firefox will save tabs from a previous session and I've found out how to enable these settings thanks to your useful support site. But I was just wondering if it were possible to not simply restore tabs from a previous session but to save a whole window of tabs for later occaisions other than the next time firefox is used? I would rather not bookmark the whole lot because there's simply too many to keep it organised so i could flick back to the page i wanted. Thanks!

Search.US.com has taken over my hone page and everything else it can. I have tried all the suggestions available to me by the help section. I have went so far as to delete cookies. This is very invasive. I looked at restoring the system but have few options for recovery points and they don't include the search engine download. I removed the add on it came with as well. I had removed the search engine in add/remove programs and was stupid when it asked if I wanted the default settings restored. I said no. I'm afraid I am j pretty stupid when it comes to software. I hope someone can help me. Thank you for your time in this matter. ps I put what I thought was relevant in the bottom box. I had not seen this before. I tried to modify it but couldn't.

I use 64-bit windows 7 os in Dell inspiron 15R laptop. My firefox browser was up-to-date until a couple of days before. Then soon it started crashing. No way I could sustain a window open for more than a few seconds. (If i reboot the system it may last for a few more minutes) At last as a last retort i uninstalled firefox and downloaded the latest version (Firefox Setup 25.0.1). But now when i tried to run the setup file, it says i can't run that in the version of widows i'm using. but, i have been using firefox in the same machine for years now! then from another link i downloaded Firefox Setup Stub 25.0.1. But running this file does not proceed at all! It shows 'downloading' for hours without progress. Now i could manage to install an old set-up file 16.0.2 but i could no way be upgraded. How can i upgrade to the latest version. I simply loved firefox more than any other browser and i've been using it for years. This is the first time i'm facing such a big headache. Please help me figure this out. (thanks in advance for the patient reading)

"This connection is untrusted"

This message box pops up with most sites and links since I updated Firefox. This includes basic links in troubleshooting articles such as the SSL test and other "try this" links on the troubleshooting page. I have NOD antivirus and firewall enabled, and have no issues with other search engines (Explorer and Chrome). I like Mozilla and don't want to abandon it. Please help. Facebook was the first, but there are too many to list.

I like having the drop-down menu from the url, but the autocomplete option for textboxs within like when I type my username and it pops up with all of the ones that has been used on that site are really annoying. How do I get rid for the latter? I didn't have this before I upgraded to Firefox, and now I can't get rid of it. Fyi, I'm rather tech inept, don't use complicated comp sci words please!

I installed Firefox 16.0.1 yesterday. I was running 15 earlier in the day and it was fine. FF 16 however has suddenly started hanging for about a minute when I try to access certain websites. It unfreezes fine after that minute, no crashes or anything, but it's very irritating. From what I can tell it only seems to do it on pages that use Flash. I've got the latest version installed, and it's made no difference. I tried downgrading to FF 15 and it's still the same. Anyone know what's going on? Thanks, Mark

I have Firebug 1.10.6 installed on top of Firefox 16.0.2. After installation of Firebug I see the bug icon in the upper right corner of my window, next to the home icon. After restarting Firefox, the icon is gone. I don't know how to start Firebug other than by clicking the icon. Please explain to me: how to get the Firebug icon after restarting Firefox, or, alternatively, how to start Firebug without icon.

Upon upgrading from FF 16 to 17, I can still drag the icon that's to the left of the url to the desktop (or even to the XP Quick Launch Bar, Folder Shortcuts, etc.) to create an internet shortcut to the current page. However, with 17 this method produces a shortcut that shows a generic Windows icon instead of a Firefox-page icon. Even though a generic Windows icon normally denotes "no program associated," these still open with FF when double-clicked. But it doesn't look right. (BTW, all the shortcuts created by this method in FF 16 or lower retained the FF-page icon with the upgrade to 17.)

Any ideas why this changed and how to fix it so it looks the same as before?

Pending resolution of this (and another issue) I went back to FF 16, and it works normally again. However, the shortcuts that were created while I had 17 still show the generic Windows icon.

fixed in Firefox 21 - locking this old thread
