After successfully logging in to Office365 (work), an attempt to click MAIL or CONTACTS results in a hang and blank screen. This does not happen in IE. After letting FireFox sit for a minute or two, the BACK arrow display shows a long list of "continue" entries as if in a loop. I have tried starting FireFox with AddIns disabled (safe mode) and get same result.

Any clue?

I just got a new computer and am trying to import bookmarks from the old one. Both computers are running Firefox 46.0.1. I've tried almost everything, trying to import the .json file, trying to import them in .html, trying to use sync, trying to swap the bookmarks files from my Firefox profile and nothing is working. I've also run the Places Maintenance add-on thing and it says my database is fine. Is my last resort just inputing the old bookmarks into the new system manually? Every time I try to import the backup file, no matter what format, it tells me it is "Unable to read the backup file."

This morning, I tried to log onto a site I had saved with my email and my password. I had saved this a while back and it is a site that wants a mix of letters and numbers. when I tried to proceed, my login failed. It has been doing this for a couple of months. I went in and deleted it and reentered my info manually. I got a prompt for an update which I ok'd. When I tried to login again, I got a fail msg. I went into security and checked ad instead of my password as typed, It had saved it as an all numerical password. I tried a couple of more times and it keeps wanting to save as all digits instead of letters. Any ideas what I am not doing correctly?

BTW, it plays fine from the Source: http://www.slideshare.net/infoDiagram/get-creative-sketchnoting-your-presentation

I have disabled pluging, run FF in safe mode, even deactivated my McAfee Total Protection.

It works fine in Edge, Chrome and Safari.

I am using Firefox 46.0.1 on a Windows 10 OS.

I will appreciate your help.

Whenever I do a google search, I am unable to open a youtube video link in the search results.. The "Open in a New Tab" works fine though!! Please see the linked videos..

The first video shows that clicking on a youtube video among Google search results results in a temporary loading of the video, but even before the video can start, it promptly returns back to the same google page..

FIRST VIDEO LINK: http://sendvid.com/owcc65ul

The second video shows that a Youtube video with "Open in a New Tab" works fine..

SECOND VIDEO LINK: http://sendvid.com/9intrq60

Hope somebody can help me.. Thanks!!

Around April, Microsoft patched Cortana to no longer direct websearches to third party browsers. Now instead it directs to Edge and exclusively Bing.

I was wondering if there is a plan for a workaround for this search feature to be reenabled for Firefox or if all hope is lost.
