I recently installed Firefox on a new WIndows 8 PC and have noticed that desktop notifications for my addons aren't working. The two addons in question are Gmail notifier (restartless) [firefox.add0n.com/gmail-notifier.html] and Twitch.tv Stream Browser https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../?src=api. I don't think this is an addon-specific issue, though, as both addons use the same type of notification and when it's supposed to show up, nothing happens. Desktop notifications work perfectly on my Windows 7 PC and I can't exactly use Safe Mode to test because that'll disable my addons. Is there anything that could be affecting this? Thanks in advance.

I've got a Macbook that I dualboot into Windows with, both of these sync fine. Just installed FF on a friend's iMac and signed into sync just fine, all the boxes were checked (tabs, bookmarks, settings, etc).

I click sync and one of two things happen: the sync icon will turn blue and rotate *very briefly* or it won't do anything at all.

I never get any sort of error, and I never get any sort of indicator as to its progress (or lack thereof), which is incredibly unhelpful.

What am I doing wrong, and what do I need to do to fix it? 34.0.5 here, don't remember off the top of my head what my laptop is on.

When I import bookmarks using the import function if FF from IE, the bookmarks come in sorted A-Z. As much as I do not like Chrome, when I do the same function in Chrome from IE the bookmarks come in exactly in the order I had set in IE. Will Firefox (using latest version downloaded from website) on my PC only import this way? Just wanted to make sure I wasn't overlooking something, as I prefer using FF over Chrome.

Twice now I have downloaded files to work on through firefox. The first time I downloaded an excel file, worked on it for several hours, saved, and then found it was completely erased from my hard drive with no record that such a file existed. The second time this happened it was a word document in which the same thing has happened. The files also fail to show in my firefox download history. I need to know if there is a way to recover those files.

(1.) FF does not remember my settings for Ghostery & PrivacyFix each morning. I have to re-set it each day. Also mu installed Plugins disappear. Have seen this behavior for 2 days now. (2.) Also I have downloaded and installed Colorful Tabs more than 8 times, and that extension never shows itself, or is in the Tools, tab or under the Customize Tab. FF's tabs are too light colored for these old eyes to pick out easily. Many of my extensions dont show up anymore, though they are the same ones I've used for used, and they pass the Add-On check at your site, with each Version upgrade. (3.) Also each new version of FF takes away my PAID FOR Pin4ever Toolbar. So I immediately downgrade to the version of FF that allowed my toolbar. I have now removed FF as my default browser, because there's just too many problems with it, though I love it because I feel secure when making purchases, etc. Thank you too any one that can help me with these issues. Mellowspirit (PS: Have Advanced System 8 installed. Have noticed they put things on my computer and remove things to make me use their version of whatever. Sneaky company. Will delete tonight, to see if problems fix themselves. Can always reinstall if wrong.)

I created a second profile called Shopping. I imported the extensions from my default profile into it. I wanted to run Shopping with a different set of enabled and disabled extensions from what I normally run on my Default profile. (On Shopping I enabled a number of shopping-related extensions I normally keep disabled on Default.) But I have found that I'm not able to separate the two profiles in this respect. When I brought up Default after using Shopping, the enabled/disabled configuration I had left Default with had been replaced with the enabled/disabled configuration of Shopping. This defeats my whole purpose in creating the Shopping profile. How can I keep the enabled/disabled extensions configurations of these two profiles separate?

I even downgraded from Firefox 34.0.5 to 33.1.1 but the issue is still there.

I don't know what details are needed so I'll just rattle off anything that I can think of.

I am running an Asus laptop with windows 7. I have never had an issue with firefox in the past (beyond the usual freezing and some obvious issues with pop up ads that are par for the course with firefox since adblocker never does what it says.... not really. Lets be honest.) I am using Avast for my virus protection and it is also up to date.

My issue started about an hour ago when firefox stopped responding. The video I had playing kept going but I could not interact with anything. Assuming the program froze for the billionth time that week I rebooted it. This has always solved freezing issues in the past. Now, however, firefox is doing something new.

I can access the menus and almost everything on the window itself except for the minimize/maximize/close buttons, I cannot move the window at all, and I cannot manually resize it. I have also noticed that although videos will play, I can only click on their buttons if there is another smaller window overtop of firefox. The video controls will only appear that way and when I click them firefox naturally comes to the front and the video responds with the button I used but the buttons are gone again and I cannot resume playing without the smaller window back in front to make the buttons show again.

It's as if half of firefox is frozen while the other half is still running somehow.

I have no themes that could be causing this. Literally none. I only use firefox for the things that can no longer be opened in Opera so I have no need for any theme beyond default. The only addons I installed on purpose were adblockers (lord knows why. they don't DO anything.) though several other random things seem to have been installed over time to aid in one thing or another. Various plugins and players and versions of java, that sort of thing. But I have everything (and i mean EVERYTHING) in the addon menu disabled. I have tried booting it up in safe mode (the program, not windows) and the problem is still there except now it won't show the menu bar at all unless I press the alt key first and even then it wont let me actually click on anything in the menu bar. When I try the whole bar vanishes. I had to close firefox with the task manager. Rebooting will fix the issue for about 15 seconds before it all comes back. Any attempts at updating have failed as it says I am already up to date on everything so I don't know what its issue is.

It's not an urgent issue right now as most of what i need to do can be done on the half screen window I am using, but some of my sites have buttons that literally vanish in anything but full screen and I imagine that this will be a much greater annoyance within a few days.

Hello

Having a strange issue with firefox - single mouse click will not open links - always needs a double click (even one with a long delay between first and second clicks) to navigate. This problem started about a month ago. I have used firefox for years without encountering this issue.

Outside of firefox (including in Windows, IE...) this problem does not occur. Interestingly, the problem also does not occur in firefox toolbars, menus, etc. It seems to be only for links...

I would really rather not reset firefox as it will be a right pain to recustomize lost settings etc.

All help appreciated
