I have tried everything to get Firefox (v.26 I think, it recently updated) to save my home page. Nothing is working. Tried reset, changing config, adding profile, virus scans, cookie removal, reinstall, everything from the simple fixes to the complicated ones, all that are in the support pages for this problem. And still I can't save my homepage. I have used firefox as long as I can remember and have never had this happen.

The only thing I notice is that there is no user.js file in my config. There is a pref.js file but I don't know what to do with that or if it would help. I did activate a new profile though and that did nothing.

hi

I love firefox esp videos. Much better than internet explorer and chrome. Very stable, smooth. Was playing fine then crashed. I thought it could be a few programs i uninstalled like shockwave which was playing hell with my computer. I uninstalled and reinstalled mozilla firefox and adobe flash player but still couldn't play videos in you tube, or revolution golf, etc. I took a screenshot but i don't see an attachment here to send it you. It says i need to update adobe flash player, or the adobe flash player is required for video playbacks, which i already did several times but it still doesn't show up in my firefox plugins. Please advise.

After the last Firefox upgrade, a new add-on called Motive Extension asked to be installed on FF. I had no idea where this came from or how it got in my computer. I selected no. Some days later, while checking my add-ons, I found Motive Extension on the list, but disabled. But when I went thru the plug-ins list, I found something called Motive Plug-in. I disabled it. Later I found another plug-in called Motive Management Plug-in. Where did this come from? How did the plug-ins get on my computer without me being informed? Especially after I said no to the add-on. Just what do these things do, anyway?

I don't know if this means anything, but the add-ons for Norton AV are missing.

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.

Old Modem from Comcast died. Went and bout a new Motorla SB6141 modem.

plugged it in, reset the wireless router, and got the Comcast Self Activation page.

All went well, said the device was activated and registered.

I can use the internet, EXCEPT for one site. Everytime I try and get to www.ourtime.com, the registration-activation-page keeps popping up! I've tried flushing my DSN, and powered the modem and router off and on.

This only happens in Firefox, so I cleared all cookies and cache from that app too.

Using Safari, I can get to the site. Any help would be appreciated!

As many have complained about, there is a growing trend for websites to prevent browsers, including Firefox, from remembering passwords. This is absolutely infuriating. Like most people, I have on the order of 100 passwords, and thanks to idiotic, overzealous IT guys who need to justify their own jobs, we are forced to constantly change them to ludicrous, impossible-to-remember combinations of symbols and numbers. (Does anybody really get their accounts stolen because some hacker sits down and tries to guess their password? Somehow I find that very, very hard to believe.)

First world problems, I know. My question though is simple: is there any way to force Firefox to remember passwords? Perhaps an add-on or external program of some kind? I know there are password manager programs, but the last time I checked, those were all but worthless and didn't work as well as the built-in Firefox support for remembering passwords. Thanks for any help.

when trying to access website i am faced with a security warning since certificate is self signed. this is an internal site that is currently under testing - so it's ok to add an exception. the issue is, the option to select "i understand the risks" is completely missing, the only available action is "get me out of here"

since this is an internal site under our complete control i have performed some more tests: it seems firefox redirects the original http request to https this does not happen on other browsers (chrome and IE), also tested in a clean install of firefox running without any extensions.

even after cleaning the cache and temporary files completely, issue still remains. this site (on http) will not load on firefox, always redirected to https

even after removing apache mod_ssl from the server, and completely removing all mention of ssl on this server, connecting with firefox still redirects http to https (now results in "can't establish a connection to the server" error - but still not loading the basic http version of the site)

I had Adobe Flash Player v.11.9.900.170 and upgraded to v.12.0.0.43. When I checked the Add-Ons manager, both Flash versions were listed and active. I de-activated the earlier version, and now some websites indicate I do not have Flash. When I re-activated the old version, the video played fine. So what's the deal with it being necessary to have TWO versions of the Flash Player installed, the current one AND a previous one? Seems hinkey...

The Firefox plugin checker is reporting "Update Now" for VLC media player Web Plugin 2.1.0. The 'update now' link invites me to download Plugin 2.1.2. but i already have 2.1.2 installed so the plugin checker is detecting the wrong version. I have had v2.1.2 installed since December 9th 2013 and run the plugin checker on a weekly basis so i'm not sure why it has suddenly decided that this is a vulnerable plugin.

I am running Firefox 26.0 on Windows XP

Yahoo Mail is asking me to add an application (a Yahoo Mail app) for "mailto" links. I don't want it. Closing the notification works for as long a refresh, which means I'd be forever closing the notification, thus I want to disable the notification in about:config but what exactly do I need to disable?

Update. Here is someone with a similar problem: http://superuser.com/questions/363827/how-can-i-disable-add-application-for-mailto-links-bar-in-firefox
