After reinstalling Firefox (to new 64-bit version), I've lost all of my favicons. I'm seeing that only way to get them back is to individually select each bookmark. Is there a way to get the bookmarks to go and automatically download their favicons so my bookmarks will be repopulated again?

Hi there.

I recently got myself into a little bit of trouble by downloading a file containing a ton of malware. While I've managed to get rid of the majority of it some things still aren't right, such as Google detecting a wrong IP address. However, I can't find a malware program that can detect anything that's wrong and I've exhausted trying to detect anything manually.

Now before you start sending me packing to a malware specialist, the reason I come here is because this problem is only happening in Firefox AND it's only affecting Google. When I search using Internet Explorer, it gives me correct IP / location information, but in Firefox, Google detects me from several rotating locations; San Jose CA, Ashburn VA, and Boardman OR. There may be others, but those are the ones I've noticed. Going to another IP detection website gives me the same IP / location detected in IE.

Is there anyone that can tell me where I might go looking in Firefox's data to eliminate this problem?


Thanks so much

WW.

Hi,

I am unable to print specific pages within firefox 44 and previously 41. These are mostly webpages from within my school system. Any time I try to print or check the print preview, all the content on the page is blank.

I went through all the trouble shooting on Mozilla support including 'Fixing printer issues in Firefox' and even went as far as doing a clean installation of Firefox (removing all files and user files tied to firefox). None of these helped the issue. I thought that it could be an add-on or my antivirus software. I went ahead and disabled those too and it fixed nothing.

I have isolated this issue to firefox as it does not happen in the latest versions of Safari, Chrome, or IE.

Any thoughts on what it may be?

I'm running Fx 44.0.2 on Mac 10.11.3. I believe the problem started before I upgraded though, but can't be sure. I can't print or print to pdf at all from Fx but printing in other apps works fine. I tried doing a refresh as recommended by troubleshooting page & it didn't solve the problem. Since that time I've only installed 2 extensions (1Password & Tab Tree). There was also a recommendation to reset a setting containing print_printer in about:config. It doesn't exist. That may be the problem, but it doesn't say what the whole name of the key is so I don't know how to create it. There's also a recommendation for removing all print items from the prefs_js file, but it seems to me that the refresh created a whole new profile which would make this moot. Am I wrong? Any help would be greatfully appreciated.

Sometimes if the program or computer is running slow, when I click on the tab to highlight it for viewing, it thinks I want to drag it over somewhere, thereby creating a new window.

Can I disable this tab dragging feature? I looked at about:config but nothing readily jumped out at me.

Every time I download a zip or a rar file it asks me what to do with the file and doesn't give me the option to do this automatically next time, like it did way back before I made the mistake of refreshing firefox. It's driving me nuts to have to click save file every time without being given the option to do this automatically next time. It gives me the option to do this automatically next time when I download an mp3 file, but not zip or rar files. Help please.

Good afternoon,

Here I am again with a little problem.

Not every website that I visit allows videos to be viewed in full screen mode, why?

I have followed the instructions on "how to" whenever I get this, but when I get all the sites that are listed, there is no "Allow Full Screen" button anywhere that I can see.

Can somebody please suggest another way to allow "Full Screen" please.

The last site that wouldn't was BT.com, all others so far do, YouTube, is fine as are other sites that I visit, mainly forums.

Thank you.

Mike.

I cleared the browsing history on my main computer with sync turned on. Then I went and set up a print server, installed firefox and signed into sync my account to access saved bookmarks for printing, and all the history that I had previously deleted was again loaded. How can I delete browsing history so it is also deleted from my account? This seems like a serious privacy concern not to be able to clear synced history, and hopefully there is a way aside from deleting one's account?
