Hence I can't do any web searching, but it displays no problem whatsoever if I click on a stored bookmark. This happens with any open tabs and the page is refreshed the instant any search button is used, whether there is an address or not. Can the refresh page feature be turned off?.

I just had my Mac drive wiped clean to start fresh and I thought I had saved a backup of my bookmarks. I don't think I enrolled in Sync before although I don't know how I got my file with the bookmarkbackups and places.sqlite files (63 items in that folder - vmtpqxbh.default). Where do I place these backups?

I've seen a few posts about hao123 but nothing is working. To clarify, I do not have the toolbar/software on my computer (at least according to control panel) and I've uninstalled Tencent's WeChat in case that was causing it. However, I still am getting the hao123 hijack.

I also ran MalwareBytes and RogueKiller and deleted a bunch of the results, but it only resolves it for a little while before the problem comes back.

The only thing I haven't tried is resetting Firefox, but I'd really like to avoid that if possible.


My questions are:

- Is there a way to get rid of it without resetting Firefox?

- If not, is there a way in general?

- If I have to reset Firefox, is there a way to save off my bookmarks/settings?


Thanks!

Hi, and thanks for reading my question,

I recently got a "Warning: Unresponsive Script" pop-up box from Firefox v38.0 and mistakenly checked the (paraphrasing) "Don't show this message again" box.

How can I bring those warnings back? I didn't see something in the Tools-->Options area...did I miss it?

Thanks!

Been cleaning up my PC and noticed I'd lost a large amount of space on my C drive. Using WinDirStat to get a listing of disk space usage I noticed that my Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/XXXX/storage/temporary folder had grown to 4GB!

Inside this folder are countless folders mostly starting like 'file++++I++Projects2015+WebGL_Builds+index.html'. Inside which is a folder called 'asmjs' that contains a number of 'module' files.

Its clear to me that most ( over 95% ) of the space used here is from running Unity's webgl builds of various test projects I've made over the last year or so. So this is obviously some form of cache or maybe a local store of pre-compiled/optimised js of the webgl Unity projects ( games etc).

The problem is clearly that these files are not getting cleared and are anything but temporary. As far as I can tell there is no means to control the overall size of this folder, or to clear it. At 4GB its taking up 1/16th of my C drive, so its space I cannot afford to lose.

I have tried clearing all caches Firefox provides access to, i've cleared history and other storage. I've investigated IndexedDB, local storage, session storage but all were dead ends. I've made several google searches but found almost nothing on this or any useful information.

I'd be very grateful to learn how to

1. Control the size of this folder 2. Delete all the content from this folder, besides simply deleting via the Windows explorer.

In addition what is the best method to report this to Mozilla, as it seems obvious to me that being unable to control or that this folder can grow to 4GB so easily that there is an problem here that needs to be addressed.

Thanks

I had my firefox display my bookmark bar under the url bar. Its set to show, but none of the bookmarks are showing up anymore. It's just an empty bar. Even in safe mode it's an empty bar. I used to have my frequently used url's on there, but they recently disappeared. Now I'm left with an empty bar with no use, and i was wondering if I could get it back. Below I have linked to the picture of what my status bar looks like. https://www.dropbox.com/s/609pci1oz4bwcal/Firefox%20bookmarks.PNG?dl=0 Any help would be appreciated

I have clean (just installed) Windows 7 N Ultimate SP1 and only AMD display drivers and firefox installed, nothing more. No addons, no plugins, no flash, no sync activated yet, no any configuration and youtube is not working! I tested from both, normal and safe firefox work mode. Nothing. In both cases I'm getting "An error occurred. Please try again later." message (see screenshot). I had the same problem before I reinstalled Windows. Youtube actually stopped working maybe month ago. With other browser (chrome) everything was working fine. Do you have any idea why is this happening? There are some errors in web console but I'm not sure this is the problem. As I said everything is on default.
