On a Mac, tried to come back to firefox after many years but is there no way now to import my passwords from Chrome to Firefox?

On the support pages there are supposed to be: 1) an Import button on Password Manager - not there for Mac 2) Import password check box for when you import data - no there for Mac (only importing bookmarks etc)

Can I not use the csv file from Chrome in any way?

This seems to be a pretty significant way to deter anyone wanting to try a new switch, not on Windows.

I'm randomly losing the ability to scroll using the mouse. I launch Firefox and it works fine, then after a varying amount of time it stops and the only way it comes back is by restarting Firefox. Today it isn't taking long for it to happen after launching.

I'm on the latest version of Firefox in Mac OS X Maverick and I'm using the following extensions all in the latest version,

• Adblock Plus • DoNotTrackMe • Firebug • Xmarks

I first tried disabling all the plugins, didn't help. I just tried resetting Firefox, again didn't help.

I haven't noticed this behavior in any other programs thus I'm thinking it's Firefox.

When I am in Fullscreen mode, the toolbar at the top disappears and only appears when you mouse-over the top of the screen.

Is there a setting somewhere so that when I go to fullscreen mode, I can choose to keep the address bar, tab bar and the bookmarks bar visible (not auto hide)?

I have not updated Firefox for some time, and do not know which version I was using.

I use a Macbook and today I upgraded to OS X Mavericks. However, it updated my Firefox and now I have version 26.0.

The scrollbar to the right has disappeared. To get it, I need to press my down arrow key and then quickly get the arrow onto the newly appeared black bar, in order to scroll. There is no arrows available either and I cannot find out how to add them and the scrollbar back in.

I don't like the apple style scrollbars that hide when you don't use them, which is one reason I didn't update for over a year. I just want a visible scrollbar back and visible arrows I can click on.

Any ideas? I have no knowledge of computer code so am hoping there is a way to do it without having to go into a shop to get someone to edit code for me.

I used Firefox up to version 3.5 and it worked well. But ever since, FF has frozen as soon as I've opened a webpage other than Google. FF even freezes when I'm in Mozilla's help pages ! I have trashed and reinstalled several times, updated constantly as suggested. I'm now using (or trying to use) version 25. No success. I have done everything that was suggested :

- trashed and reinstalled ( several times over the years, to see if new versions of FF would work) - restarted FF in safe mode - tweaked the profile as recommended - I've painstakingly checked that all my plug-ins etc were up to date. They are.


None of these solutions have worked. As I have written more than once, none of them should be necessary : Firefox should "just work". After all, other browsers do - I use Safari and Chrome, for instance, as well as SeaMonkey. Does any one know what's happening ?

I'm now running Mac OS 10.9.

I have reloaded Firefox as suggested. I have clicked "Always" in by System Preferences scrolling. But none of these work. If Firefox does not fix the scrolling problem for the Mac OS X, I am forced to use Safari as my main browser, because the scrolling works there. I've used Firefox for almost 10 years, but this problem is very frustrating.

Hello, in our company we all use firefox (different versions) to use our CRM (SugarCRM). Since some of the PC (with windows 7) updated to Firefox version 33 (64bit) we started getting the following problem while downloading PDF:

"C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Local\Temp\[tempfilename].part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read."

We tried to downgrade to Firefox 32 and everything seems to be working fine. I already tried to delete the profile, reinstall Firefox, clear cache, delete Profile folder, but nothing helped.

Can it be a Firefox 33 bug? Thanks

Hello everyone, here is my problem:

I can't log into Twitter from Firefox, I am using the latest version that is available on OS X Yosemite. I can log into Twitter from other browsers like Chrome and Safari. And whenever I put my login credentials it just resets back to the login page, it doesn't say wrong password or anything, it just resets the page. Also, I have looked around a few topics related to this and a few related solutions such as clearing cookies and cache, and editing the about:config option that I forgot the name of.

Thanks for the help!

Hey everyone!

I'm getting this error from spesific media websites only: "The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported". Before you ask:

  • It's an HTML5 player, so nothing to do with Adobe flash
  • And these videos, I watched them before. So suddenly I just couldn't. I can watch them on Safari and Opera (Those are other browsers I use, in case I face something like this).
  • I don't know what happened, I didn't even upgrade my Firefox. This error came out of nowhere.
  • The website I can't watch videos from is Openload.

The extensions I use (If necessary):

  • Adblock Plus
  • Flash Video Downloader
  • Fontface Ninja
  • Folx integration
  • FlashGot

But yesterday I opened one Openload video. But it was a one-time thing. Anyone can help me?

Pretty much what the title says. I try to load Youtube, and when the initial page loads, it automatically tries to sign me in. I'm not sure why, but it can't sign me in, and gets stuck in a loop. I don't have the patience to see if it eventually fixes itself, especially when I can sign in just fine in other browsers. The same thing happens whenever I try to sign in to my Google account, since Youtube is linked to Google.
