Sync is not appropriate, so please stop promoting Sync as the cure for everything. My original HD will no longer boot into XP Pro, so I have made it a second (USB) drive in a different PC, also with XP Pro. I want to copy all my FIrefox and Thunderbird material from the old disk to the new one, in the same machine. How do I do this, and if possible retain all my passwords etc. ?

Hello,

   We have been using Outlook Web Access 2010 within our organization for a few months now, and have been using firefox to do so. With the latest Firefox 8 update, it seems that certain attachments download as "attachment.ashx". Yes, I said ASHX not ASPX. My research tells me that ashx files have to do with the .NET Framework. It seems that this is only occurring since we downloaded Firefox 8.
   Yes, changing the file extension allows us to open the files, and we can set a program to handle the file extension, but that would only apply when the ashx extension is only affecting one file type, but it seems to happen for more than 1 document type. I have experienced this issue with .pdf, .doc, .xls, .docx and .xlsx.
   Any ideas as to what would be causing this as of the latest update?

Getting annoyed with "Your Firefox Browser is out of date" notification that hijacks the browser page every time I open Firefox. If I wanted to update I would! I do not want to update. I want to remain on the version I have so HOW DO I STOP the annoying notification alert every time I open a browser window ...to which I have been selecting. "No thanks, I will risk it". I do not want this box popping up anymore. It seems like a bullying form of forcing something on someone.

Thanks

After the last update FireFox started to continuously eat a whole CPU on my 2-core laptop. My usage pattern (regarding browsed sites and/or activated plugins) has not changed, but I must confess that I'm a heavy user of plugins.

I suspect the problem may arise from a changed performance behaviour of a plugin due to the new JS engine of FF18, but how can I easily trace this problem further down. I.e. is there a way to inspect the collected performance data of firefox (activated)?

I am currently using Firefox 32.0.3 now on my Windows XP machine and I hate the look and find it difficult to navigate customizing the thing. It took fifteen minutes to set everything up to even come close to resembling what I used to have. Even with the Classic Theme Restorer it is horrendous. Will Firefox be able to restore the look and feel of 28.0? I would appreciate it if the next update went back to the classic settings and appearance as a default. The only reason I updated was due to supposed vulnerabilities in 28.0, otherwise I would never have upgraded. And as it is, I am seriously considering returning to 28.0 as it is, because honest to God, I cannot stand this thing. I wish I had a screenshot of how it used to look to show as a comparison to how it looks now.

Well here's the screenshot of my problem: http://img177.imageshack.us/img177/7263/flashorsomething.jpg

As you can see preview windows on YouTube don't load. Also - user menu won't show.

I think it's a problem with flash plug-in, since the problem started right after I was updating it (even though I didn't need to I guess). And that leads to another problem; I tried to update it since instead of videos on people's profiles I would get error saying that I got Java Script disabled or old Flash version - it was wrong then, it is wrong now - now, cause it still gives me that error.

I post here, because on Google Chrome YouTube works perfectly fine.

I tried to reinstall flash, didn't help. Some suggestions?

EDIT: Also, now I see that YouTube on Firefox got some basic problems with functionality, like can't view "more" of videos description and so on... eh. It gots to be flash or something.

This is when you click the "whats on your mind" box. Started happening yesterday. Works OK on IE. Scanned page source and found composerTourStart on firefox but not IE. COMPLETELY deleted firefox, saving and restoring only bookmarks. ALL plugins and extensions are disabled. Same thing. I see this exact problem reported a lot, but on Chrome.

Also, the buttons for friend requests/messages/ all clear the number and do nothing. Both started happening at the same time.

Firefox 14.0.1, XP SP3

I put what I think is the area causing the message from the Page Source area.

Let me explain, when I open a webpage with a lot of images like for example an official thread about a game in a forum, the connection in Firefox is stuck, I mean It loads the web but not the images and saying "connecting with... " and It doesnt load any image.

But the weird thing is the connection is out forever, I mean if I go another website is still "connecting with..." and the only fix is reboot Firefox 6.

Also Let me explain what things I tried.

-IE and Google Chrome works fine. -Firefox 3.6.20 and Firefox 5.0.1 works fine. -APB+ disabled in Firefox 6, the problem is still there.

So I dont know what kind of problem this thing has, also browsing with 5.0.1 its not safe right? because its not longer supported.

Been experiencing severe slowness and lock-ups with Firefox of late, which ends with a sudden drop in memory usage and me having to repeatedly shut it down through Task Manager. I have created a new profile and disabled hardware acceleration. I have tried disabling all plug-ins and extensions, yet I noticed that at times (not always) plug-in container was still an active process, which I don't understand. Why would it be active when there are no enabled plug-ins? I also noticed that when plug-in container is not active (showing under Processes in Task Manager) I do not have this problem and Firefox runs normally? I need to block plug-in container. Please help.

Firefox updated to v.22 today and the Roboform toolbar is nowhere to be seen. It is in add-ons and enabled, but not visible through toolbars or as the icon to customize toolbars. All was well with Firefox 21. There appears to be a compatibility problem between Roboform and Firefox 22. Installed version is Roboform v. 7.8.9.5. Please work with them and issue an update. We're stuck without it!

Meanwhile, do you have any suggestions about how to get this working? Reinstalling RF didn't make any difference.

I run windows XP i love it and im not looking to change. Up until the last "update" my Firefox worked fine no issues and rarely ever crashed. Since the update all Firefox seems to do is freeze and crash? not sure why nothing is different other than the update that was an automatic one. I have run malwarebytes scan i have done a deep scan with Kaspersky and also run tune up utilities just in case nothing was found i have no virus but what i do have is a non functioning Firefox. if i walk away from my computer for more then 10 minutes it freezes up i cant even minimize it and then it crashes.

I have looked through your forum i have inspected my plugins ( i dont have many ) nothing wrong there

Im not very tech savvy so please no long explanations with 300 steps because i wont understand it. i just want to be able to enjoy my Firefox again without it crashing multiple times a day.

Any help is much appreciated

Why does FF call out to the IP address 72.21.91.19? I found that the IP is part of Edgecast and seemed to be possibly related to FF live bookmarks and/or the latest headline live book mark.

But FF is still trying to go to that IP even after the live bookmark was removed. It tries to do this every 15 minutes and sometimes more often.

Currently I am blocking that IP with my firewall. This seems to be a privacy & security problem. But I have not found a way to completely block live bookmarks. This ONLY happens if FF is open and happens regardless of what site the browser is or has been visiting.

This is an older system and FF ver 3.6.28 ( it's a good old stable W2k OS system). FF is using NoScript, Ghostery, & ADP. The system passes all virus checks, including Malware Bytes and Super AntiSpyware.

Warning: If you upgrade to Firefox 17 and use Google's old search -

https://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0&hl=en

the autocomplete (drop-down box of you personal search terms) is disabled and per Google is not a Google issue

Again if you use https://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0&hl=en

your typed search history contained in the drop-down box is eliminated with Firefox 17, and once again Google has verified that it is not a Google issue.

Hopefully Firefox fixes this issue because tens of millions of people who use Google's old Search Engine -

https://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0&hl=en

use it because it retains your typed search history while eliminating google's suggestions, making searches fast and precise and effective and efficient without google's clutter of suggestions, yet Firefox 17 disables it altogether

Ordinarily I can use twitter no problem with Firefox. But now all of a sudden it logs me in, and takes me to pages but will not allow me to post tweets, reply to others, or retweet or log out or send direct messages. So basically I cannot do anything unless I use internet explorer, where it seems to work. I don't want to use IE or I wouldn't have Firefox! It is not my twitter account because the same thing happens on other accounts logged in on this pc. I have tried downloading a new version of firefox, removing all twitter cookies and everything else. My account and firefox work on the "Tweetdeck" site but not the actual twitter site. Is there anything I can do because you cannot email twitter (well, I don't have an email address that works for them!! )
