Hi,

I only want to mention that Firefox hangs on download, if I want to download VMWare Player for Windows from https://my.vmware.com/de/web/vmware/free#desktop_end_user_computing/vmware_workstation_player/15_0|PLAYER-1555|product_downloads

After clicking the button for the download destination nothing happens and reacts anymore and I have to kill Firefox. The dialog for choosing the download destination won't be opened. (Winodws 8.1 Home 64bit)

IE 11 works well.

Hi. The attached "authentication required" popup occurs intermittently in the Firefox browser. I have no idea what it is referring to. Clicking cancel removes it. It does not appear to interfere with any Firefox operations. Would just like to know what it is about and how to prevent it from appearing if not necessary. Thank you in advance for any assistance.

I may have changed a setting ... Normally when I need to sign back in to my yahoo/att email account I can select "stay signed in for 2 weeks" and that works. But as of today, even though I select the 2 week option, when I leave my email page, I have to sign back in upon returning. Every time..... The "stay signed in" option is currently working on Google Chrome and other browsers, but I'd prefer to continue with Firefox. Thank you

I run Eudora 7.1.9 and it runs just fine until I open Firefox. Then memory dissipates quickly and everything slows down or FF crashes and/or it takes my Eudora with it. Don't have the problem with IE or Chrome but I prefer my Firefox.

I am running a 64 bit version of windows 8.1 with a dual processor and 8GB of ram and a 1T SSD.

I assume I'll have to make changes, just don't know yet.

Appreciate help.

Is any one else experiencing an inability to log in to wellsfargo.com. I have latest version of firefox and have no new add-ons or changes in security/anti-virus or malware programs.

Their tech support said "sounds like a browser issue" . I switched to ie and logged right in. I use to log in a dozen times a week and have not ever been denied. When I try to log in the screen re-freshens and is blank. No bad log in script or any other prompts, just a waiting log in screen.

Thanks for any thoughts or similar experiences.

I would like to check which cookies are set and what content they have stored. Therefore, it is not enough for me to see which provider has stored cookies, by looking at "Settings" -> "Privacy". As far as I know these are stored in the file cookies.sqlite. Is there a way to look directly into this file? Firefox should automatically delete all cookies on exit. Nevertheless this file is 1.5 MB in size. Or is there another way to check the cookies? Thanks in advance. Matthias

Hello. I can't find my bookmarks after update 76. I followed the directions, and I ouldn't find anything. I searched my computer and all my drives for json files and 'bookmarks', and I found backups from 2001, 2013, and I know I have backups 'older' than those on discs, but the ones missing (so far) are the most important and complete ones from the past 7 years. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but update 76 'seems' to necessitate syncing devices. I only have reason to browse on my desktop, so I didn't plan on syncing it with anything. I 'do' have a smartphone, but other than downloading malwarebytes and one other app, that I need, that's the extent of my 'online' activities on the phone. However, since I couldn't find my bookmarks without doing so, I decided to download Firefox onto my phone and try to sync them up. When I signed up for the Firefox account earlier, I changed my password with a password generator. However, my phone doesn't have all the characters on its keyboard that are in my password. You can customize the keyboard, but it looked like a magnificent pain to do so. Instead, it seemed easier to 'dumb down' my password from 40 characters down to around the minimum, at least until I got them synced. However, I tried twice with typing visible on the phone and it said the password was wrong, so instead of trying a third time, and getting locked out of Firefox - I came here to see if anyone could help me. I know that rebooting often corrects a lot of things, but since I don't have these bookmarks backed up anywhere - I was afraid this might be a case where it may make the bookmarks more difficult or impossible to retrieve. Thanks in advance.

Several months ago, I was not able to access my contacts or calendar. In other words, no response when trying to click on any of those icons. However, I tried a different browser such as Edge and everything worked fine. So.....am I going to have to change my default browser. It kinda looks like I will use Edge from now on. Any thoughts........ Use Yahoo mail.
