Since the upgrade to Version 38.0.1, this action is no longer working. I can right-click and select a link to open in a new tab, but pressing the mouse scroll-wheel no longer works as a shortcut.

Please fix or advise if there's a setting I can tweak to get this feature back.

Thank you.

How to change the default cache folder for firefox?

I have created a 4 GB RAMDisk( 4GB of my RAM is now a Local Hard drivem which has crazy read speeds nearing 400MBps) using a Dataram software( http://memory.dataram.com/products-and-services/software/ramdisk ) . I have installed firefox in that drive to increase its performance. But until I move my cache into that Drive, I can't make it any faster than before. I am a heavy user. I have the following add ons installed which take its toll on firefox's speed, 1. VideoDownloadHelper 2. Unmht 3. Integrated Google Calendar 4. Dashlane 3 password manager 5. Progre All enabled and latest updated versions, other than 4 other disabled add ons.

So I need to change the cache directory. I tried this solution https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/768867 ,. I went to about:config , browser.cache.disk.enable is true, and browser.cache.disk.parent_directory , I can't find.

Please give me a solution to this. Thanks.

I am unable to select "clear history" - it's greyed out & unselectable on my laptop. It only happens on my laptop, but shows my history for many months in the past and includes the history from both of my desktop computers which is supposedly cleared frequently. Sync is enable on all devices, and the history does not show on the desktops. I am able to clear the history on both desktop browsers but not the laptop. Laptop OS: Windows 7 Home Prem. I also have IE, Chrome, Safari installed.

I've changed my email addresses. When i come to Firefox to update that change in my email for sync login there's no option to be found. I created a new account using my correct e-mail and now I can't find how to bring over all my sync data. Simply put, I want to update my email from my original sync login. If that's not an option (which baffles me) than I need to transfer all sync data to my new email sync login.

I sure would like to solve this. I was using Safari on my 2008 Mac and then it became outdated on some websites so I switched to Firefox. I am using a wireless connection supplied by the RV park that we are in with a password. I must use Safari to log in then I can use Firefox once that I am connected. (Firefox 38.0.1). Is there some way to disable whatever security line is causing this problem. I also use Firefox on a windows7 laptop from time to time with no problems. So far this is the only problem that I have found since installing Firefox on the Mac.

I was playing farm ville 2 on Zynga when I was prompted to update my flash player, so I did. When I did, I went back to play my game and the picture would not come back. The site came up, but the game would not fully load so that I could play the game. I went to You tube to play some music videos and the videos would not play. I went to my WWE network to see if I could watch it and I could not watch anything there either. I can not even play any of my face book games. I have loaded and unloaded flash player at least a dozen times or more and I still can not get anywhere. I also can not reload any older version of flash player. What do I do?

Hello and thank you I only have one button at the bottom of the options page, in all categories like security or advanced etc. Used to be the three, ok,cancel and help. Now just one with a "?" on it. Is this just a change in v.38? Just hoping I don't have some malware changing things around! Been there done that! Thanks again.

This is looking more like a website issue rather than browser problem, but can you tell me whether there might be a Firefox setting that is affecting this behavior? When shopping for yarns online, I often open various color images in separate windows to see which look better together. I've come across a page that won't allow me to do that for many of the images -- instead, the message pops up: > You have chosen to open: > [filename].zoom.1.jpg > which is: Binary File > from: http://cdno1.yarn.com > would you like to save this file? > Cancel / Save File The page is http://www.yarn.com/webs-anniversary-sale-weaving-yarns/webs-weaving-yarns-valley-yarns-rayon-chenille/. To incur the error, I hit ctrl + enter while the cursor is on the hourglass image and then select either Open Link in New Tab (or New Window). Copying the image link and entering it into the URL bar also brings up the same error message for the affected items. I added "yarn.com" and "cdno1.yarn.com" to my list of exceptions to the popup blocker, but that didn't make a difference, nor did opening Firefox in Safe Mode.

I've recently had to erase and reinstall my laptop OS, so I've lost my preferred settings for Firefox and I'm trying to sort out and fix any unexpected behaviors. I'm currently using Mac OS X 10.6.8 and the latest version of Firefox. (I can't seem to access that information in Safe Mode, but 38.0 sounds about right.)

Any help is appreciated.

Private Browsing issues: New window is a "pop-up" & Right-clicking bookmarks shows grayed-out options

When I'm in private browsing mode in Firefox 38.0.1 for Windows 8.1, I cannot do the following things.

1. When I click on a link to open a new window, that new window is like a pop-up window (no menus, no scroll-bars). But I have pop-up windows blocked, so it acts like but is not technically a pop-up window since it's not being blocked.

2. When I choose a bookmark and then right-click on it to choose another bookmark either in a new window or new tab (or any of the other options that appear), the text is grayed out so that I cannot choose it.

Are these "issues" normal for Firefox 38.0.1?

Using a school supplied MacBook Pro (I teach mathematics in Boston Public Schools). The OS is 10.9.5 Just upgraded Firefox 38.0.1 I set the remember history but the library does not have any entries in it.

I also use firefox at home on my imac and do not experience this problem. Firefox is my browser of choice and I really need this to work as it would be very useful to have my browser history available on my school machine.

Thank you very much for your help,

I have tried starting in safe mode and it also refreshes the tabs when it starts. I have set browser.cache.check_doc_frequency=2, so it should us the cached to load the tabs, but it is not. This change only happened in the last few month.
