I have tried everything I can find to stop bing.vc from opening as the start page in firefox version 39 and so far nothing has worked. I am unable to find any reference to in in about:config; a refresh of firefox did not help; no add-ons refer to it and conduit or search protect do not appear in uninstall programs in control panel. No malware removal tool has any effect on it and I have used all that were recommended on the Mozilla support site. Help please!!

While I still find Firefox functionally speaking by far the best browser, and even more so now that the program size is much smaller than that of its competitors, there is one thing that has always bothered me: the sheer ugliness of its Javascript alert pop-ups. Could you please remove the blackening of the page (which scares new FF users as well), and give the pop-up itself an aesthetic make-over? I would suggest to make it like the one in Safari or Internet Explorer.

Such a good browser deserves a much more beautiful alert. The current one (v. 39) is too ugly for words and gives a very cheap impression (as does the new Options window appearance, for that matter).

The plugins do not get checked and there is no link displayed to update flash or any other plugin.

The page also logically broken - it only checks plugins that are enabled 100%

I have noscript installed but it's not showig as having blocked anything.

I'm not interested in running Firefox in safemode . Whether it works in safemode is besides the point because safe mode messes up my browser layout upon return to non-safemode and typing get flash into google is a lot quicker than messing around going to safe mode.

Seems other people have written about this.

I'm using Firefox 39. Clicking 'Show All History' in the drop down menu only shows 'Older than 6 months' and 'Today'. Clearly this isn't 'All History'! Why doesn't it show anything between 'Today' and 'Older than 6 months'? Is this a bug?

Today I downloaded the add-on 'Places Maintenance' 1.3.1, and ran it. It has made no difference.

I hope you can help.

Basically, firefox often will freeze/not respond and requires me to force a shut down just to keep it from freezing up my entire computer. I run lots of tabs every day and I use a session manager to help keep on top of them and keep them from getting lost. When my computer was new this was not an issue but in the past few months I've cut down my tabs(less than 80) to try and speed my computer up and it has not worked. In fact, it is actually worse now. Sometimes it even actually crashes and sends a report, but not actually as often as it freezes and needs a forced shut down. I just finished cleaning up my computer(antivirus, malware, CC cleaner, etc.) and it's still freezing up. In fact, I've had to restart firefox three times in the past twenty minutes just to get to the point where I can ask this question. It's very frustrating.

Here are the last ten crash reports: bp-b2d18586-752c-491e-b128-e1c382150719 7/19/2015 10:56 AM bp-7925764c-4906-4093-b643-851d92150719 7/19/2015 10:09 AM bp-72c5f28a-e863-4236-9a3a-36d012150719 7/18/2015 8:18 PM bp-f0d1a8ab-64f0-434b-8639-98ccb2150718 7/18/2015 5:51 PM bp-809a83fe-a0d3-4fea-8f5d-b88c22150718 7/18/2015 5:45 PM bp-8160bab0-efda-4ab1-ae21-2df4c2150718 7/18/2015 5:08 PM bp-0f24531a-012c-44ce-9189-008ae2150718 7/18/2015 11:07 AM bp-b9cedefd-8bdf-474d-8235-964382150716 7/16/2015 5:36 PM bp-12edfcd7-563b-4253-9279-079972150712 7/11/2015 7:29 PM bp-b0745415-ae41-45c3-a717-f57fd2150709

As you can see even the actual recorded crashes happen a lot. I'm not sure what other information to provide, just let me know and I'll get it for you.

Until the the most recent upgrade(s), Firefox would automatically save my log in information for my home page. It no longer does. When I start Firefox now, I have to click Sign In, choose my saved password (from Roboform), and I am logged in.

Sometimes I can close Firefox, reopen it and I am still logged in. Most of the time when I close Firefox and reopen it, I have to sign in again. I have the same settings in the current version as I had previously but still have issues.

I have tried all the standard 'stuff' (making sure passwords are saved, etc.) but nothing changes. I have uninstalled Firefox and started 'from scratch,' but it hasn't helped. I'm baffled.

B.T.W. if I use Internet Explorer, my Sign In settings are saved. I want to use Firefox but signing in every time is a pain.

Thanks.

I reinstalled the whole PC from the scratch. Both partitions were deleted (not just formatted even!) and recreated, then I reinstalled the Windows. I downloaded a new, clean .exe from the official MF website. Installed perfectly clean MF (this was literally the first programme I installed on the PC). It was all fine until I logged into my girlfriend's account in order to synchronize the newly installed MF with her profile (bookmarks, history, etc). Then that Redirecting to Advertiser virus came up. Then I reinstalled the Windows again and repeated everything all over again. It happened again on the very same moment - when I logged in her MF account. Which, obviously, means that her account is hacked/has virus. I tried literally everything that I found on the Internet, nothing really helped. I even removed MF + deleted ALL the entries in the Registry which relates to MF. When I did clear instal of MF, I got it again. Which probably means that once I log into the compromised account, the virus goes to the PC somehow (and somewhere).

PLEASE HELP ME GET RID OF THIS THING!!! Thank you very much in advance! :)

Firefox password manager just stoped responding to my masterpasword .. ?

Dear volunteers,.. y'all do tremendously valuable work ... adding to the wisdom of the cloud/crowd. Many times I solved a problem by just looking for postings of others who had the similar problem, but now I had to become a member of this community to ask about this problem. The only thing I could find that sort of addressed (I think??) my problem was https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=499233 But I don't understand that tech-talk.

Anyways ... on July 6 the build in password manager stopped responding to my old and tested master password. The password manager just keeps asking for it... as if my password is wrong - but it is not. I have been using the same password for a few years and never changed it. Prior to this mysterious behaviour I did nothing special to my computer or to Firefox. I'm on Win7 with up to date virus and malware protection.

The thing that makes me think that it is not a question of the wrong password, is that after much fiddling in the section "settings and security" with it's options like resetting, changing, removing or showing passwords ... suddenly my old and trusted master password was accepted again (!) but only in the "change master password" field. So I did change my master password into exactly the same old master password that had worked for the last years. I than closed Firefox ... started it again ... went to a site for which it keeps my password .. entered my (old-new) master password ... and bingo it was again accepted. Joy :) The next day however password manager again refused to cooperate! And now 'it' does not fall any more for the procedure to change the master password. I do know about typo's, and I do sometimes use the copy/paste method from hidden plain text files. When password manager finally accepted my password again ... I did - to be extra certain - a keyboard input in the first field and a copy/paste input in the second field and that was accepted by the password manager. Any one ever heard of such a thing?
