My FF updated to 8.0 today. When I try to drag the tab it changes into a strange miniature and I cannot drop it on my bookmarks bar anymore.

Dragging tabs to folders on my bookmarks bar was my main way of performing this task. How can I do it now?

In earlier versions of firefox, keywords could be typed into the awesome bar and I would be redirected using google's I'm feeling Lucky button. Recently when firefox updates, I have had to go into the about:config page and change keyword.enabled to the link of I'm Feeling Lucky. In the newest update, however, the keyword.enabled string was changed to a boolean value, so I can only enable or disable it rather than change it to I'm Feeling Lucky. Supposedly enabling it will provide the same feature, but I tried a few obvious keywords (Google, Wiki, Hotmail) and all of them came up with a google search instead of redirecting me. I really liked this feature, and I hope there is a way of reimplementing it.

Thanks, ~Casey

TypeError: attempt to run compile-and-go script on a cleared scope

Above error message appears when moving between pictures - forward and backward. Clicking OK button removes the error message and there is no other apparent problem. The Window that comes up does reference a JAVA Script Application (I assume FIREFOX is the application???)

It stops responding and takes about 30 seconds to come out of it. I've searched and found "hanging" but nothing there seems to be an issue that I can tell. It started a week ago and is getting worse all the time. It primarily happens when I click on a bookmark in the toolbar. I upgraded to version 8 beta last night hoping this would help but it's just the same. Is anyone else having this issue and if so, do you know how to correct it?

I have three email addresses all of them start with the letter L. I have also in the past made mistakes when entering my email addresses and have had to delete the bungles email address and start again. Now, when I enter the letter L into my email address box not only do my 3 genuine email addresses appear (which is brilliant) but also the mistakes I have made in the past. How can I remove the email addresses that were my mistaken entries. For instance one time I had just entered the letter l then inadvertently clicked on the sign in button and the single letter L now appears as a complete address as soon as I enter the letter L. One more instance I opened a new email address that I decided to keep for friends and family only, the address was made up of letter and numbers. The first time I tried to open the new address I entered the wrong number by mistake, I could not get into the email page obviously but every time I enter the letter L the mistaken address that I entered also comes up as possible address. I think that the feature is excellent but I want to know how to get rid of the email addresses made by mistake.

I cannot uninstall Firefox from my Vista PC. I have Firefox 8.

I used the control Panel "uninstall program" first - nothing happened. Then I went to program files/Mozilla Firefox/uninstall/helper.exe and ran that as administrator - nothing happened. I did these after reading the uninstall instructions on Firefox support.

I am experiencing no problems with Firefox. I just want to uninstall and then do a new install perhaps as a non-beta user.

I noticed I have two Mozilla folders in the C:/Program Files folder. One is names "Mozilla Firefox", the other is named "Mozilla Firefox 4.0 Beta 12". Is this to be expected or could it be the source of my problem?

Thank you for any help.

Example: I get an email from twitter. I go to GMail. Read the email then click the link within the email but then I'm suddenly logged out of the website even if I had just logged in.

This also happens just by going GMail. This problem has been persisting since the beginning of the summer.

This only happens in Firefox.

Resolutions I have tried:

  • Enabled cookies for websites
  • Checked/Unchecked "Use custom settings for history"
  • Deleted cookies, cache, Site Preferences and History
  • Checked all plugins and extensions
  • Uninstalled then reinstalled Firefox
  • Complete system can for Viruses and Malware
  • Upgraded and downgraded the Firefox version
  • Deleted the cookies.sqlite file and any cookies.sqlite-journal files

It's on an Acer netbook, running XP; after Outlook Express 'was unable to open' it's 'message store. Your computer may be out of memory or your disc is full.' (Neither of those is anywhere near being the case!) Sent it's error report to MS but no reply to that, yet. Firefox says to 'check that this (profile) directory has no read/write restrictions' but it's run perfectly well for the year I've had the netbook & I've not changed those settings. Please help, thanks!
