I go to pages each day and hope the computer (windows 7) would remember my password as it always did when I had an old computer. I have a Vista laptop and it remembers my password every time. Maybe my settings in "options" are not set right?

I use the Find feature a lot in FF. In past versions, the Highlight All and Match Case options were next to the search field, all clustered together on the left bottom corner of the screen. Beginning with version 25, the 2 options are pushed all the way to the right of the screen, making them awkward to access (in fact, initially I thought that they had been removed).

What is the logic behind this change and how can I configure the Find bar to be formatted like previous versions? (Please don't suggest the use of any add-ons, FF is running slowly enough as it is).

Thanks!

Everything except the web page disappears, which I do not want to happen. I can get the address bar and tabs back by hovering at the top of the page, but they disappear again really quickly and it takes some care to reach the back and forward buttons, or to click on the address bar and type in a new URL, or to click to open a new tab. It is driving me nuts. I haven't reset preferences or anything so I can't imagine why this would happen. There is no menu bar, so I can't find a way to look at and change my preferences. The bar along the bottom, which tells me what else is going on in the computer and the time, is also gone, which is annoying. That doesn't come back when I hover at the bottom of the page. So I have to alt+tab to get around. I only installed Firefox on this machine a couple of weeks ago. I'd be grateful for advice, thanks!

With each new version you suck a little bit more.

You have become as bad as google, updating and changing for no good reason, in a race to the bottom with yourself.

The whole reason I started using Firefox is because it worked, now after thousands of installs and convincing users to ditch IE you have become just as bad.

I now restart Firefox a dozens times a day on the 3 machines I use daily. The memory requirements are staggering and FF is now SLOW.

First thing out of the box you will say "you have too many add ons", sorry, I only use one, noscript and not even that on 2 of the three machines.

Three tabs open and nearly 600,000K and using 1-12% CPU just to type this text.

Don't bother with an answer, just clean up your mess. In the alternative we can all wait for someone to come along and eat your lunch. Give me a browser that WORKS and I will forget Firefox ever existed.

I am suddenly getting all Chinese characters on one site - publicdomainpictures.net. Changing the encoding doesn't fix it and I can't seem to get auto-detect to turn on (it's off). When I view the page info, the html code says the page language is "cn" which I assume is Chinese. How can I prevent this from happening and how do I fix it now?

Web Acceleration Client Error (513) - Internal Error The Web Acceleration Client detected an internal error which caused the connection between the Web Acceleration Client and Web Acceleration Server to be broken. Retrying the web page may correct the problem.

I get this error continuously when working in the ancestry.com website. I have to reload the page on almost every search I do on that website. This is the ONLY website that I get this error message on, can work continuously for several hours on other websites and never get this message. I've talked to the people at Ancestry.com support and they made 2 recommendations: turn of antivirus (did not help) or switch to another web browser. I tried both IE 11 and Chrome Version 31.0.1650.63 m and I did not have the problem with either of those 2 browsers getting this error.

Is there a problem with how Firefox and ancestry.com are communicating with each other?

I had to erase my mac and revert back to an older operating system. I was using Time Machine to back up my computer, so I thought it would back up my Firefox bookmarks file as well. I reinstalled Firefox, but I can't seem to find the file anywhere. I checked in this location Library/Application Support/Mozilla

I also have a Sync account, but can't find my recovery key and I no longer have access to the other computer that it was synced to.

Any ideas on how I can get my bookmarks back?

When I watch a video on YouTube, the comments section does not load. Comments do load with other browsers (e.g.Safari.)

This has occurred since the change in YouTube's comment policies, November 2013.

Google Product Forum question "Why can't I see any comments on Youtube?" showed suggestions to disable Ad Block. I either don't have Ad Block or am not seeing it in my add-ons. Is there another add-on that could be causing the YouTube comments not to load?

I want to back in Firefox. So Please Please Publish beta version with Image block option. Thanks.
