I have to use a Java Plugin to run a java applet used for my work. Google Chrome has recently stopped the support of this plugin, I have customers that cannot work in Internet Explorer and would like to offer them an alternative.

I can only do this if all functionality of my site works in Firefox. Presently there are some display issues experienced in Chrome and Firefox with the site. Only IE displays it correctly.

Recently (after using Yahoo.com for years) when my homepage loads it fails to load graphics and when I go to my mail account, the page is severely faded and difficult to read. I have never had this problem before and it only occurs at Yahoo.com. If I click on a link from the homepage it loads perfectly. Any help is appreciated.

The process to "Bookmark All Tabs" has apparently recently changed. The "New Bookmarks" window that pops up after choosing "Bookmark All Tabs" does not make it clear what needs to be done now to save all of the currently open tabs. It used to be a very simple matter of just naming the folder. Now it is not clear to me what portions of the pop-up window need to be filled in to actually get the open tabs bookmarked instead of just getting an empty folder labeled [Folder Name].

Thanks for any help you can provide!

I've been unable to add new bookmarks for a while now - either by click the star next the bookmarks icon in the toolbar (the blue star flying into the toolbar animation happens, however the star remains empty) or from the menu from right clicking a tab. I can add/edit bookmarks if I go into the bookmarks manager.

I know this issue has been raised before, however none of the answers posted (that I've found at least) have helped.

I have tried the places.sqlite solution. It did not help.

I have tried the places maintenance addon. It did not help.

thank you

i turned on Firefox today and found out that it's showing a new session instead of my previous session. which happened right after the update. then after i finished using my PC for the day i chose the option to restore previous sessions instead of showing homepage(i don't have one) then i closed and re-opened Firefox. still showed me a new session.

and i also need to mention got one of those hijacker junkwares which seems like i caught before or after the update (i followed online instructions to remove it) but removing it did not solve this problem.


i'm not sure which one is the reason for the problem. so i would be grateful for any kind of help :)

I'm using Firefox 40.0, and on some websites (for instance http://nameexoworlds.iau.org/exoworldsvote) a Google website translator bar shows up on the top of the website. It's asking if the language in the website (English) should be translated into Dutch. However, as I'm perfectly able to read English, I want it to stop asking me for translating from English. There is a button for that on the bar, however it does not appear to work, because when I press it the bar disappears, but when I refresh the website the bar is back. How do I keep the bar from showing up or just stop it from trying to translate English?

The most recent update of Firefox removed and/or disabled my Password Box, with which I store all my passwords. Presently with a choice between dumping Password Box or my beloved Firefox, I would dump Firefox because ALL my passwords are there. This is the worst reason to migrate to Google Chrome, which I hate and avoid almost as much as MS IE, using them only when absolutely necessary. Is Firefox trying to make it unpalatable?
