Hey everyone! So I have a TON of bookmarks (just shy of 2000) and I wanted to find an add-on to sort them by website. In doing this I downloaded the auto-sort add-on and it sorted my bookmarks alphabetically. I REALLY hate them sorted this way and want to revert to sorted by date added but it doesn't seem like I can do so. Help?

Keyboard Control FAIL: Using TAB key on websites directs cursor to nowhere!!! Why?

(using 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5 MAC MINI, OS X Lion 10.7.5) I have always felt safer using the keyboard rather than mouse-clicking on search fields etc. (Open Firefox, hit command+L to the URL I want to go to, then hop to next field with TAB key).

Most notably frustrating example is with using Google, this has not worked right for some time. Say that you to start to search for something on google "main page" and then it goes to the search results page... You go to edit your search or type your next search and the cursor is flashing inside (but off center) of the search field and inputting text is not an option. Also you may instictively hit ESC (while in search field) when you are being given suggestions you don't want, and then the cursor moves again to this no-man's land in between fields.

The other KEYBOARD control issue that I have found is this: Sometimes you cannot Close Window or even Quit Firefox with the usual keyboard shortcut. Usually when a few windows or tabs are open, or when there is some pop-up survey etc. on page. You can usually ALT+TAB to another open program and then back, and then you can close window or application. But that seems really sketchy to me! This happens all the time on major websites. You can go File-> Close Window or File->Quit, but when you use the same keyboard command the file menu just flashes with an "error tone."

This and a previous post on Gadgets missing on Google Sites in edit mode are related to recent FF updates. Just noticed this with Issuu.com. There should be a Follow button and a range of other buttons for social sharing and adding to Issuu.com stacks. Works on Safari! Cookies deleted, Flash updated and still not there. Regregettably, I am going to move back to Safari because too many things have gone wrong with FF since update 22!

I use Firefox for my browser, and for emails for work we run Office 365. Since Friday, I have not been able to click within an email. For example, I purchased a pair of running shoes from Finish Line, they sent shipping info to track, but I cannot click on tracking number which would take me to UPS. Before Friday, this was not an issue at all. I'm trying solve this stupid problem. I do run the adblockerplus, this has never been an issue either. I did have to (for some reason) re-install this Saturday.

With this new version of Firefox (32?), ALL of my passwords have been deleted, and any "AUTOFILL" option that was SUPPOSED to exist does NOT, in fact exist. My reaction to this abortion follows: 1) How dare you write a new version of your software that ERASES MY passwords on MY COMPUTER. That SHALL NOT happen again. 2) If I do NOT receive a FIX for this BUG by Monday morning, Sept. 15, 2014 I WILL (not shall) migrate all my browsing to another Browser and purge Firefox from my system, forevermore. For instance, SAFARI has fixed this problem on their browser. 3) You arrogance (or stupidity? or both?) is both monumental and bewildering.

I'm REALLY frustrated at the fact that I have to be forced to upgrade my computer or operating system just to upload my videos on Facebook as my videos do not load, the post buttons do not appear and everywhere I look it says I have to be on the LATEST version of my browser! Now, I along with countless MILLIONS of other Macintosh users are on OS Versions such as Lion & Mountain Lion and THEY all deserve respect as well.... I implore you all at Mozilla to PLEASE try and repair the Firefox Browsers so they can all be used universally regardless of whether you're on Leopard or El Capitan or any other OS in the spectrum...

On Mac OS X (10.7.5), after firefox 23.0.1 update, the orange Bookmarks button that was on the Bookmarks toolbar (next to "Most visited") disappeared.

I tried to reset firefox, and got a Bookmarks button on the Navigation toolbar back, but that is less useful (more mouse travel ^^). Also, I tried to customize the Bookmarks toolbar and can put on it a Bookmarks menu, but it's not orange (black) and, more importantly, it cannot be renamed (I used to put an empty name to save space on the toolbar).

Any ideas ? Thanks,

Firefox keeps crashing frequently. I have tried doing a clean re-install on both the RC and beta versions.

Crashes occur equally in high and low intensity usage... for example, having just one tab open in gmail, a crash might occur when clicking on an unread message. Crashes also occur without any interaction (if I'm afk for a bit of time, chances are that when I come back firefox has crashed).

No addons or extensions are installed.

OS: OSX 10.7.5 VMWARE guest running on ESXI 5.5.0.

Recent crash reports:

bp-ff105499-63fd-48a3-9750-6206f2140317 bp-14a677b4-ec16-496d-8231-80b102140317 bp-250b6713-c302-4453-af1e-f63ca2140317 bp-a3122a4e-a4ae-42eb-a999-a904a2140317

I'm just not what the next steps for troubleshooting would be. Thank you!

EDIT: fixed hyperlinks to crash reports EDIT2: Sorry... can't figure out how to properly insert a working link to crash reports... EDIT3: figured that out at least!

Disable "search from address bar" - about-config fix doesn't stick

I want to disable the feature that, by default, places my cursor in the address bar when I want to run a search. Typically I use Google and have it as my default home page and new tab page. Consequently I automatically open a new tab and begin to type my search term right away. Then I look up and realize I am not in the search box but the address bar. I want to make this change in part because Google has recently modified the default webpage to "https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl" and because the Firefox feature doesn't work anyway (i.e. if I just start typing in the address bar and hit return, I don't get a search result).

I understand that the official fix is type "about:config" and change "keyword.enabled" to "false". However, it only "corrects" the problem one time (the cursor goes to the search engine entry point) then the next time it reverts to the address bar. Any help is appreciated.

1) My preferences in 42.0 are not operating. The screen shows frozen options.

I cannot find cache or stored passwords or anything else at all. Nothing moves.

What can I (or you) do to gain access to my Preferences?

I am dead in the water without my preference options.

2) How can I stop Firefox from automatically upgrading in the middle of critical operations and projects?

Thanks

I get "This site is untrusted" Verifying and adding an exception takes about one minute. For Every Page Load! This make firefox on ultra-high-speed broadband now SLOWER than an apple ][e from 1980 on a 300 baud modem!

Solution? Delete firefox. There doesn't seem to be another one.

This is a problem with firefox on windows vista.

Hi,

Firefox has stopped displaying websites correctly. When I view a certain page it does not longer align images, or show bullet points etc.

I have gone thorugh all the troubleshooting steps available online like clearing cache and history, starting in safe move. Disabling add-ons, re-installing firefox etc, but nothing helps. Other browsers display my site just fine.

Its a staging site at the moment for a new website. On the home page for example, there are 4 box areas each with a thumbnail image, which does not align with the text anymore.

Really hope someone can help me with this issue.

I just bought a new computer that came with Windoze 8. I hate it. Firefox works occasionally.

It is pinned to the taskbar, but I cannot get it to start. I click on it and nothing happens.

When I go to Start and click on Firefox, it does not staty. IE and other programs start, but not Firefox. Is Microsoft blocking it? I am trying to run a business and I have to use Firefox on a Windows machine. Any suggestions?
