I just reformatted my computer harddrive and reinstalled both Windows and Linux. Now that I have everything installed and updated, Firefox is asking me to migrate to the new syncing system they have. Problem is, I want to still be able to sign into the old system just to be able to get my bookmarks so I can migrate them to the new system.

I still have my sync key, and login information for the old system, but I just want to know how to access it once to get my information. I can handle everything from there.

Due to the new update and the removal of the add-on bar that usually resided at the bottom (also known as the status bar) I have add-ons installed that work that no long show up AT ALL. It's not there in the new side icon thingie that you can click on, nor is it on any other bar available. I use this add-on ALL the time and would like to be able to use/see it but because of the new update I cannot. How do I resolve this? Or at least maybe put in an add-on bar that is moveable, so people who want to use it can and people who don't want to can just remove it or un-check it.

I am very displeased by this new update. I was actually really impressed with it up until the point I was unable to get to any of the add-ons that I use but no longer show up at all.

I just upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7. I reinstalled firefox, added the speeddial that I liked so much, and then tried to use firefox. I can't type the web address into the address bar when I start firefox. I always have to open a new tab before it'll let me do it. Also, I can't highlight and copy what's typed there - AND I can't "paste and go" anymore. Is that open gone?

Since the latest overhaul of Firefox (which is great overall) I'm having problems on both OSX and Win 8.1 with the handling of Google's multiple accounts authentication.

If I log out of one account (say, my work account) and then try to log into another (say, my personal account -- choosing it from the 'choose an account' screen) it then logs me into the work account no matter how many times I log out of the work account and try to log into a different account. It's like it's not clearing the previous session properly or something. This is with 29 and now 29.0.1.

On my mac I tried clearing cache, and deleting the cookies.sqlite all to no avail.

Thanks for any help. Other browsers are working fine.

I have spent hours reading all the suggested solutions to this problem and have tried everything I can to resolve this, but nothing is working. I don't understand the "user.js" references, but I've done all the Tools changes and even gone to about:config and modified some functions there regarding the tabs and homepage as recommended, but the problem persists. I just updated Firefox, too, and it seems they still haven't fixed this problem that is so irritating to so many.
