I subscribe to a number of separate "Things" hosted by a single company (silly example) http://stuffstuff.co.uk. My user name for each of the separate things is "mr-silly@silly.co.uk" and the only thing that differentiates them is that each "Thing" requires a different password.

Thing 1 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 1sillything Thing 2 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 2anothersillything Thing 3 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 3moresillything

and so on...

Unfortunately this Lockwise thing will not permit this to happen, presenting the following stupid message.

"An entry for http://stuffstuff.co.uk with that username already exists. Go to existing entry?"

How do I get around this Lockwise silliness?

The email address is required as the user name by the company.

Don't suggest having a different email address for each user name, that is not possible.

While the question maybe posed in a silly manner  :-) I am quite serious about the problem. Thanks Ax

I typically have several tabs open in Firefox to quickly go from one website to the other. It seems like after a while or if I have more than a couple tabs already open, clicking on a link or choosing a bookmarked site to open a new tab does nothing. By nothing I mean the tab will open with the URL displayed, but FF is not actively trying to connect to the requested URL. The stop and refresh buttons are grayed out. My only course of action is to close that tab and try again, which typically just repeats the previous steps. It's not website dependent because once this begins happening, any attempt to open a website in a new tab hangs.

I do not remember if attempts to open new websites in existing tabs are successful as I cannot duplicate the problem right now. The only think I know that's successful it to close FF and restart it. When I close the program and reopen it, I notice quite frequently that I get a message that FF is already open so I tell it to close and reopen. Also, the last time this problem happened was a few minutes ago and I had four tabs open. I noticed that there were TEN separate processes running, all called "firefox.exe". Opening an error-free, single-tab instance of FF resulted in four separate processes running. Right now, I have two tabs open - the one in which I'm writing this question plus another, static page. This is resulting in SEVEN separate processes running!

I have not attempted to refresh FF yet as I currently don't want to hassle with all the customization I've done and most likely forgotten how to do.

I'm running Win7 Pro with 16GB. Thanks for the help!

There is no indication of progress while a webpage is downloading. I'm looking for something like the rotating hour glass, or a rotating circle of dots. Only when the process is done do we get the page's icon on the tab. As it is, I never know if my request to open a webpage is working or if the computer has locked up. It must have changed with the latest update because, although I can't remember exactly how Firefox previously indicated loading in progress, I instantly noticed the LACK of it as soon as I booted up the newest version.

Thank you.

Hello,

My wife and I both use the same computer and before, she used to use Firefox exclusively while I used Chrome exclusively. I've decided to move away from Chrome and into Firefox myself. I have discovered the use of different "Profiles" to keep our browser separate. I even created two shortcuts to load up our profiles separately. However, it keeps the firefox icon on the taskbar the same for both of us. While I don't see a Huge issue with it long-term potentially, is there a possibility I can make it so Firefox opens in a way that there are two different... programs? Where she has one icon on the taskbar, and I have my own? That way it is truly "separate"?

Thank you.

Firefox was working normally earlier in the day. I'm not aware of any updates on my computer. I didn't install add-ins. When I click the firefox icon to launch the program, the cursor momentarily has the hourglass symbol then nothing happens. There is not error message. Firefox is not shown in the task manager list. The firewall has mozilla firefox in the list of allowed programs. I've tried rebooting, reinstalling, the refresh tool, deleting appdata files, temp files, anything I could find in the registry with mozilla in the name, then rebooting again then reinstalling. I don't want to go back to Chrome... =(

I have chosen to delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. However I want to make certain exceptions. That normally works fine.

However that are certain sites that are listed in the "Managing Data"-list that are not proceeded with a "https://www...", a typical example is "google.com".

I have not been able to add such sites to the exceptions.

If I just write "google.com" in "Address of website", and choose Allow, the system automatically adds a "https://www.../ in front so the exceptions list looks like . . https://www. google.com . and the cookies listed as google.com are deleted when I close Firefox.

How can I add such sites to the exceptions?

why cannot we permanently get rid of the datareporting folder that is created in the profiles folder? It has been stated before that "no data is collected" yada yada yada when the particular options are set, and they are, yet the folder still reappears. I so not allow tab restore, all privacy settings are set to prevent this that i can find; changed in about:config toolkit.telemetry.unified to false toolkit.telemetry.enabled to false datareporting.healthreport.service.enabled to false toolkit.telemetry.archive.enabled to false user_pref("datareporting.healthreport.service.enabled", false); user_pref("datareporting.healthreport.uploadEnabled", false); user_pref("datareporting.policy.dataSubmissionEnabled", false); user_pref("toolkit.telemetry.unified", false);

Stop it please. It slows down page loads and if, IF, no data is collected, why create it???
