Hey I have to delete the cookies once in a while to keep my device fast. But there are some important cookies that I need to keep. But as I delete all cookies, they get deleted too. So is there any way that the cookies that get stored from websites, will be transferred to a cloud storage. Like Onedrive, Dropbox, Google Drive etc? It will be a lot of help if it is possible.

Firefox was creeping after I had disabled all addons. So I tried Refresh, having been assuered that a number of files, including Bookmarks, would be preserved. I have spent at least an hour trying to re-install some extensions. I have tried online suggestions without success. I have made four attempts to install Classic theme restorer. I have gotten one pannel which suggests that it is installed. but I it does not appear to be operative. I still see the new GUI. This is a substantial handicap, as I am not very familiar with the new GUI.

As far as I can tell, two other extenmsions have not been installed. And I have not been able to recover my bookmarks. Numerous other changes have occurred, including an invasion of Yahoo and Google products. I seem to have a number of plugins installed which I have neither re-installed nor re-acitvated

I am running Windows 7, with Firefox 45

Alright, so. My website uses google font 'Montserrat' and the latest firefox update breaks it. To be honest, I'm sick of having to rollback (see notes below) because all that happens is the damn thing updates again without my permission. It's driving me nuts.

It looks absolutely awful, it's super jagged and just looks nothing like it should.

I think I've isolate at least part of what the problem might be. The 'unicode' font choice in option > content > font & colours is not there. It's stuck on 'latin' and there's no option for unicode.

I have tried fresh installs and all that jazz. The settings are correct except what I mention above. The page is allowed to choose it's own fonts, etc.

I've troubleshoot this issue quite a few times and the only thing that's fixed it is taking an old version from my husbands computer and using that.

If anyone could help shed some light on this I'd be extremely grateful as my site looks stupid without the font rendering correctly!

When I try to view a pdf file that is attached to an email it opens a poor copy with word online, that can't be printed.

When I try and download the pdf file from the email attachment a dialog box ALWAYS pops up asking "what to do with this file?" The dialog already has my default reader selected and the "do this automatically for files like this from now on" box is checked.

Every time I try and download the dialog comes up.

I'm running windows 10, firefox 45.0.1, foxit reader 7.1.5.425. Emails are on outlook.

I've been away for a few days and have just checked Google Calendar on my PC but find it's totally unresponsive. Having searched the Google forum it looks as if folk are saying it's a Firefox issue. Don't know if this is correct, all I know is, I can access Calendar on Android but not using Firefox browser on my PC.

Recently my hard drive has been severely fragmenting. After an hour of normal web surfing the CPU slows to a stop. After each hour I have almost 5000 fragmentations. My disk defragmenter shows Firefox cach entries to be the culprit with multiple pages of 2 and 3 fragmentation blocks. There is a ton of this reported on the internet and appears to be a glitch in the way Firefox writes to the drive. I am using Windows 7 (because I want to;-) Thanks!

Hello. Some time ago I installed a program on my PC and either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox started having problems when trying to access some websites (eg: I go to https://www.google.pt and all is good, but if I remove the "s" from https it don't work; Also I am here posting using Mozilla Firefox because this websits is https). I tried a fix I found on youtube, that was changing the chrome.exe name to something like chrome1.exe, worked, but only for a few days. Tried to reinstall Google Chrome and nothing. Later I installed Google Chrome 64 bits and since then I am not having problems with Chrome, but Firefox is still with problem. Microsoft Edge (I've Windows 10) works perfectly. Now talking a bit more about the problem. Trying to access http://www.tecmundo.com.br/ , http://www.google.pt/ , http://agar.io/ , and lots of other webpages, the uploaded message shows (in portuguese, and I dont know how to change language to english quickly). I think it is maybe some adware or so that I installed with that program that is causing the problem, as it's not affecting Edge, didn't affected Chrome when I changed the exe file name and don't affect 64bit Chrome. What would I do? I tried many fixes that I found in this site and nothing is working, so I thank you for help to fix it. Thanks.

Administrator on 64-bit Windows 7 Professional unable to open existing Firefox (45.0.1) or install 46.0.1 (with save or run) -- ALL ATTEMPTS produce this pop-up: "A required privilege is not held by the client."

Version 45.0.1 was working. As I usually do and have done for many versions of Firefox, I downloaded Firefox Setup Stub 46.0.1 with Save rather than Run. However, I could not run it from the download. Firefox was still working. Then I used the Update from inside Firefox (which I presume was the same download), and Firefox has not worked since. I cannot open it with the icon on my taskbar, by using the Start menu, or by clicking on firefox.exe in C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox.

I have spent HOURS searching and reading and trying possible solutions to other problems (not Firefox) where the users had that, or a similar, message. Nothing has worked.

The Securities tab of the Properties of the firefox.exe file shows three "Group or user names" -- SYSTEM, Administrators (with-my-name-here), and Users (with-my-name-again). SYSTEM and Administrators have all "Permissions for Users" allowed (except for "Special permissions" for which neither Allow nor Deny is ticked). Users has ticks to Allow only for "Read & execute" and "Read".

The Advanced Security Settings show me as Administrator as the Owner. I have "Full control" in Permissions (not inherited), and a second entry with me as Administrator also indicates "Full control" (inherited from C:\Program Files (x86)\ for this entry). The SYSTEM entry also has "Full control" (inherited from C:\Program Files (x86)\ . The Users (with-my-name) has a "Read & execute" Permission (inherited from C:\Program Files (x86)\ .

So, I have "Full control".

What does "A required privilege is not held by the client" mean?

Who is the client?

What is the "required privilege"?

And where does one get it?

For a few days I have been receiving pop-ups about updating to a newer version of Thunderbird. Normally I would do so without hesitation (as I have done in the past with Firefox). However, I am now afraid to attempt this in case the same thing happens with Thunderbird and I can't access my emails. At least I can use another browser (as I am obviously doing to post this).

Years ago I used Netscape Navigator (preferred) and Internet Explorer. The first time I used Firefox was at an Internet café on a holiday. I had to learn to use it because it was the only browser on the machines. When I got home, I downloaded Firefox and have been using it ever since. I loved the multiple tabs (which IE did not have at the time). I have IE and Chromodo on my machine, but I only use them for sites that don't work with Firefox (fewer and fewer as the years have gone by).

Can someone help me so that I can return to Firefox? Please?

SUDDENLY all sorts of websites I try to connect to say the site is not secure. Even ones I know are secure such as my bank.

Sometimes it "LETS ME" add an exception and sometimes I just can't connect and it is really really really annoying that my browsing is constantly interfered with.

How do I fix this problem. There is no way 5 sites a day or more are unsecure.

Whenever Firefox updates on my Mac, Firefox won't shut down, and (as a result) I can't shut down my Mac. A 'Force Quit" doesn't do anything. My only option is to hold the power button down on my Mac for 10 seconds to 'force' a hard shutdown.

After reboot, Firefox works normally (closing Firefox works correctly).

I read somewhere that the recent update from Firefox 45.0 to 45.0.1 was, in part, to fix an issue where some videos do not load in Firefox if third party cookies were blocked.

In my case, all videos loaded fine UNTIL I installed the update that Firefox said it needed, which was to update Firefox 45.0 to 45.0.1. After the update, some video files will not load at all. The video page and player will load, and the loading animation will start, but the video never loads. On sites that have an indicator as to what percentage of the file is loaded, it will go up to 99%, but will never finish loading, if it is really loading at all.

All my plugins related to video files are up to date. I am running Windows 7 SP1 64-bit operating system, have plenty of RAM. I began having the problem when I updated Firefox from v. 45.0 (32-bit version) to v. 45.0.1. Before the update, everything was working fine.

I tried playing the same videos in Internet Explorer 11, and they load and play just fine. Therefore, it is a Firefox issue, and a Firefox 45.0.1 issue specifically.

Am I just stuck with this albatross, or is there somewhere I can download Firefox 45.0 and go back to that version of Firefox?
