When I click on History there's nothing recent at all. And it only shows a whole ton of stuff that's "Older than 6 months". I can't delete them individually and I've tried refreshing Firefox. I also can't see anything recent. I just need to get rid of all the stuff that's there.

Thanks.

Why does Firefox freeze and a rectangular white box come up on the screen of my Mac after the computer goes into sleep mode?

Why do I find Firefox forzen and a rectangular white box on the screen of my MacPro after the computer goes into into screen saver mode and I come back to type again? I have to Force-Quit Firefox and restart my tabs from scratch.

It got so annoying that I switched to Chrome for a while, but Chrome is a power grabber that would not let me upload to Amazon the cover images for print books I write. I want to switch back to Firefox, but the only way to keep it from dying on me is to keep the screen saver and the eco-saver sleep modes completely off. This only started happening after I installed the new Yosemite OS, so maybe there's an incompatibility of some sort.

Here is a screen shot of how the white box looks on the frozen Firefox screen. Well, hmm. Looks like this image won't upload either! Oh well!

Anybody know what's wrong or how to fix it?

Please help,I never use the social media bar. I don't understand twitter, never use facebook, don't have g+, pinterest or instagram account. How do I make it GO AWAY! It doesn't have the small arrow to close, and it's not even transparent, just annoying.

A step by step for dummies would be greatly appreciated.


Thanx!!

Starting about a week ago, text on many sites started showing up as strings of symbols (mostly an A in a box). See screenshots. It seems to be happening mostly to text used in links, and only on some sites. It makes some sites basically impossible to use. It just started happening out of nowhere, and I can't see how to fix it.

When I shut down firefox and reopen it, it will turn on briefly and then crash. I am able to open it by clicking a link that requires a password and using it from there but that takes a while and its really annoying. I have an add blocker and I don't want to get rid of it by using safemode. I read something about turning off the hardware accelerator but when I go into tools, theres no options button. Im also using a MacBook Pro.

If I have an local XML file with a local XSLT file the XML file displays as expected. If both files are on my server again the XML file displays correctly. However if the XML file is local and the XSLT file is on the server (and the XML file points to to the file on the server) I get the following error:

Error loading stylesheet: An unknown error has occurred (805303f4)

Using Firefox 41.0.1 on a Mac.

This problem does not occur on Safari

Any idea of where I'm going wrong? Searching on the web there are suggestions about changing the mime, but am not 100% sure what to do about that. In

Thanks,

Brian

To save a link for any website to my desktop, I click on the circular (i) Icon on the far left side of the URL bar (to the left of the green security padlock icon, if there's one there).

I would then hold my mouse button down, and drag it to my desktop, and a new link would appear WITH THE NAME of the page itself.

NOW, it saves website's url address (without the http://).

How do I switch it back, so it saves the NAME of the page, instead?

Hello:

I tried using the Add-on, Password Exporter. It works to export from my old iMac but when I tried to install Password Exporter on my new MacBook Pro running Firefox v37.0.2, I get the message, "Password Exporter could not be installed because it is not compatible with Firefox 37.0.2."

So . . . .

Is there another way to export and then import my Firefox passwords?

Thanks

Hi,

Since upgrading to Firefox 36.0.1 (and possibly earlier), Google Drive will not properly load. While I can get to the drive page, the colored wheel that google displays as its apps are loading just continues to spin. I've tried on Chrome and it loads fine. I've also tried opening Firefox in Safe Mode with extensions/add-ons disabled, as well as clearing cache. I haven't tried the Firefox Refresh yet, but I haven't done any tweaks beyond add-ons that should be interfering.

Has anyone else come across this problem? Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Thanks!

Hi,

I guess I'm a heavy FF user - use it everyday and a lot - eg closed a window last night that had 48 tabs in it.

my Firefox Profile is 2.79 Gb. It doesn't appear to be causing problems but before I try the Refresh option - I'm wondering if this is excessive?

I'm using FF 38.0.5 with ~40 extensions and plugins on Mac OS X 10.10.4 with 10Gb RAM

Thanks

Hi there. So, for quite a while now, Firefox keeps on freezing my whole computer while watching videos on YouTube or streams on Twitch. It started a few weeks back & when I couldn't resolve the problem, I changed to Chrome. But I just don't like it, so yesterday, I decided to go back to my fav browser: Firefox.

But my problem remains: When I'm watching a video, my browser constantly keeps freezing my whole MacBook. It starts with the video just stopping but the audio keeps going on for some 10-20 seconds. Then I can't move the cursor anymore & finally the sound dies & nothing reacts anymore. I can't even open the Activity Monitor or do anything else. So the only possibility for me to get back doing stuff is to hard reset my laptop & boot it again. This just happened to me twice in the last two & 4 or 5 times in the last 24 hours... I would really appreciate, if anyone could point me towards an solution.

Oh, and I'm on OS X 10.10.2 using Firefox 36.0.1 (but it also happened on 35.x before). Hardware Acceleration is turned off & flash is on its latest version. Cache has been flushed several times as well.

I have Firefox 54.0.1 on Max OS-X 10.10.5. I must have closed my Firefox window without realizing it. I was checking an email and clicked a link to a google doc, which I quickly printed and then close the window. Then, when I went to go to my other firefox window, it was gone. Because I'd opened a new window (with the google doc) and closed it, not having realized I must have closed the previous window I had going rather than minimizing it, the "restore previous session" wasn't an option.

I had lots of tabs open in the window I want, and now it's a couple of windows back and I can't access it. Can you help me get those tabs back please?

Mac OS X 10.10.5

Firefox 40.0.3

I have set FireFox to use a proxy(just the browser not my entire system) but there simply is no prompt for username and password in Preferences: Advanced: Network: Connection settings. Additionally, many times people bring up changes that need to made in about:config but either those preference names no longer exist or they have no effect on this issue.

Does anyone know how to get FireFox to prompt for username/password or where to find the login?

Thanks, MDS
