Firefox has stopped inserting my password since version 23 (only on this computer). When i'm trying to sign in, it inserts my login only, without a password. "Remember passwords for sites" option is enabled. Also I can see all of my password in the "Saved Passwords" window. I have another computer with Firefox (Firefox Sync enabled, same extensions and plugins, same settings), and it works fine there.

I am having a problem with the FireFox browser. I have attached two files that best describe the problem. I have labeled them A & B. A is the way it should look and B is what happens after I have I opened several tabs. I can get it back to normal if I click on VIEW than click on customize. When the customize window appears FireFox returns to its normal state. I than click on the done box and go back to what I have been doing. I tried resetting FireFox back to default settings, but that did not correct the problem. This began happening about a month ago. Is there a way I can fix this problem? Thanks for your help.I don't know how to attach my 2 attachments that shows the problem I am having. [email address removed to protect your privacy and security]

While working on online school, my son was typing. Somehow, something he typed reset the page size too small to be even readable. It only affects the website he was on, all others remain regular sized. How do I fix this?

Hello when I minimize my firefox 25 window by clicking on the icon in the taskbar, it vanishes into a background process. this has only happened since i updated to win 8.1. with win 8.0, i did not observe this behavior. I do not find the missing window under "recently closed tabs" or in the history. I cannot access it by clicking the icon in the taskbar again. If, however, I click a bookmark of one of the tabs which are open in the vanished window, it opens again with all the tabs active. This behavior makes it nearly impossible to reasonably work with firefox. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I don't even know if there is any interaction between Firefox and gmail. I just know it's a pain every time I want to use mail, I have to log in. I don't have to log in with Internet Explorer. My purpose here is to take advantage of Firefox not being infected with SPAM etc. Where and how do I set Firefox as my default browser, and what are the other advantages? Keep it simple, guys, I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Hello,

Many times during the day, I need to download some pdf files. But I want to save them on my computer AND at the same time open them ! Firefox lets me just download (OR open) them. Then I need to manually go to the download bar to open them. In summary, I have to make several clicks for nothing each time ! This is making me mad ;(

Thanks in advance ;) David ps: in order to locate where to implement this suggestion please see the second image of this webpage https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file

I would like a simple recent history list displayed when I click on the down-arrow on the right end of URL entry box. By which I mean a simple most-recently-visited-on-the-top list of URLs. What I get by default is a list that makes absolutely no sense to me, is in some unknown order, and is of no value whatsoever. I have no idea what algorithm is used to populate the list that is displayed leaving the URL line completely blank. I can't find an option that would set this list mode. I find the awesome bar awesomely annoying as is.

There was a question/response about enabling/disabling JavaScript by using "about:config" Another question in the responses added another question, which I also have:

"Despite my Javascript for Firefox 23 being "enabled" ( I checked re the "about:config" steps above), some websites are still asking me to enable my Javascript to view content. "

I am now running NoScript which I know blocks JavaScript, but it was happening before I started NoScript.

I hope someone can answer that question now.

Thank you, Bernadine
