I have used Firefox for years and lately have ran into a problem. On start-up is always displays a bar across the bottom of the screen asking if it may report the Data Settings under the Advanced Options. In addition, I cannot change the History setting, allowing Firefox to track my history. Or allow the tracking of Third Party Cookies. Any changes I make in the settings will not take hold, and I get the same results after each try. In addition... isn't there a button to click on to "Save" any changes. None on my screen, so I only assume it auto changes on exit and re-start. ???

I was browsing and one of the tabs stopped working. I couldn't close it or do anything w/ it except view it. The other tabs and window seemed ok. I had quite a few pinned tabs and am using the group your tags feature. Eventually I gave up and closed the windows. (the one w/ the pinned tabs I closed last) When I opened firefox again, it opened a whole bunch of "New Tabs" and I can't restore the session since it thinks it retained the session. My guess is that the group tabs functionality is bugged, especially since it seems you can't turn it off and it won't release the session.

hi,

I have been working on improving performance on my Wordpress site, one of the things I have done, I switched to dynamic delivery of CSS and JS files (so they are compressed by PHP), which worked very well for performance tests.

Now, I have ALSO added this to the .htaccess in my JS and CSS folder (wp-incldues) on a wordpress site:

<filesMatch "\.(js|css)$">
Header set Content-Encoding x-deflate
# Header set Content-Encoding compress
# Header set Content-Encoding x-gzip
</filesMatch>

for compressing JS and CSS files. this works fine on IE, CSS, Android and speed tests, but the bad thing is that the website appears broken in Firefox 38.0.1, it cannot load my menus and Revolution Slider (image carousel).

main error seems to be jQuery is not defined..

here is a collage that shows the errors...https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/28979877/FirefoxErrorsCollage.png

is there anything else i could change in that .htaccess syntax that will make every browser happy?

any thoughts?

many thanks, Gabrio

When starting Firefox normally keyboard and mouse input is very slow. Videos are choppy with interrupted sound. Scrolling is almost impossible. When starting in safe mode, Firefox runs very well. Internet Explorer works well as does Thunderbird. Have tried refreshing Firefox as well as disabling add-ons.

I bought a new computer and installed Firefox. Firefox was also installed on my old computer, and I have the old hard disk connected to my new computer as the E drive. I would like to get my bookmarks copied from the old drive into my current profile on my new C drive, but I cannot locate the old favorites. On the old computer, I think I was using Vista, but I don't know which version of Firefox. Here are the searches I have tried (hidden folders should be showing):

json (a lot of results were found, but for other programs only.) places.sqlite (no results) bookmarkbackups (no results) mrv9503t.default (no results. This is apparently the name of the file in question on my NEW computer.) .default (338 results?!) %APPDATA%\Mozilla (no results) %APPDATA% (12 results, all related to Windows) E:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile> (no results) E:\Users\<user> (no results) E:\Users (3 results, but none are named "user")

Please continue here: /questions/1064955 ~J99


Recently, I noticed when I am using an online editor, filling out a tech support form, etc., I am getting code added at the bottom of the text box. For example:

521

Even thought the style is set to "display:none;" it shows up sometimes.

I have tried replicating the problem in IE, Safari and Chrome. It does not occur.

I ran Firefox with all add-ons disabled. It still occurred.

I do a lot of work in WordPress for clients. When I start a new post or page, it just appears. I have to switch to code view, delete the code, then save while still in code view. As soon as I switch to "visual" mode, the code reappears. I have to remember to always check and delete this code.

This is driving me crazy. I see other people posting all over with this same problem and I've found no answer.

How to go back to previous version. Latest upgrade makes new windows appear less than a full new window should appear.

I have my system set to tell me when a new upgrade is available. That happened today. I uploaded the latest upgrade. My Firefox is now sitting at 38.0.1.

I don't use tabs. I want a new separate window for everything I open. Since the upgrade this morning... when I open a brand new window it is fine. But when I click on something in that window when a new opens it doesn't appear to be a full new window. There are no tool bars and there doesn't seem to be any way to have any toolbars displayed. Therefore I have no control over that new window except to minimize or close. That's it. It is not appearing as a tab either.

This sucks! Was this intended?

How do I get back to the previous version before this morning's upgrade? Otherwise I will have to find another application to use other than Firefox because i don't like this at all.

Thanks,

ksburrus

1) i get updates all the time, but only if i open About FireFox, i get no notifications & automatic update doesn't seem to work, i got update 38 to only cause i opened About FireFox & then it started to search updates (i have gotten 3 or 4 updates like this, manually), i mean i get update only when i open that http://techhelpkb.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/ff38.png, if i would not open it time to time i would still be at v35 or v36

2) Maintenance Service is not being updated, it is still v36, maybe that's why i half to update fox manually, cause maintenance service is v36
