When switching tabs using the windows taskbar during an extended online session spanning multiple tabs and windows, the window will unmaximize itself. Switching tabs using the physical tab works correctly. This only occurs with the "Show tabs preview in the Windows Taskbar" opton enabled. Closing all open firefox windows and restarting firefox is the only fix I have found.

The Firefox list of search engines (top right corner) does not allow me to directly access Google Advanced Search. In order to do so I've found I must put Google Advanced under Unsorted Bookmarks. It appears rerouting has taken place rather than a direct route to Google Advanced. For this reason I've only retained Wikipedia because I don't trust rerouted access when Google is such a widely recognized search engine.

What brought this about was StartPage was not loading so I went to Google, which I rarely use, and attempted to insert a URL under Manage Search Engines... to take me directly to Google Advanced Search. When accessed instead I got a list of results, none of which were directly associated with Google. It was obvious when looking at the address bar that Google was first ported through other websites which then sent me to the Google Advanced Search page, depending on which item on the list I chose. I hope Firefox has an explanation for this because otherwise it reduces my level of trust.

I always used Advanced Search for StartPage or IxQuick and can access Advanced Search through Tools>Options>General Tab. I then set the Home page with the Advanced option through the URL. Most of my searches involve adding extra things to narrow a search, such as keywords, exact phrase, none of these words and a date span in order to get a list of reasonable length. Otherwise I must go through a one line search which then allows me to go further with an advanced search when I know at the outset that is what will be required.

Firefox 29 (and now 29.0.1). First -- I have QuickProxy 2009.07.19 as an Add-On but its button/icon is nowhere. Not in Customize so cannot move it onto the Toolbar (or whatever the toolbar is called these days). So where is QuickProxy's button/icon?

The above is the "important" question.

Second -- the Add-On icons I do have are spread out a bit too much so they cramp the URL window to the left. (Icons only - no text.) Must they be so spread out?

Thanks.

Okay so I have several Linux devices in sync and one of them is synced also with a Microsoft 8 and the latest updates of Firefox. All of them are updated to the lastest. I had to change my password becaue for some odd reason the pass I wrote down was not being registered in my computer. Now because of that I had to change it for all of the other devices and none of them are detecting the new firefox password change. It just seems like a round circle where I change pass, and I have to continue to do that but each device wants to do the same thing.

What could be done is there some bug with respect to this!? Thanks.

I prefer to use Firefox as browser. I have imported the favorites from IE into my Firefox. There are many favorites in IE that I do not use but another user of our computer does. I want to delete those favorites (bookmarks) from Firefox. I did one as a test and it was deleted from IE as well. This will not make for happy sharing of a computer!! How can I delete an imported IE bookmark from Firefox without automatically deleting it from IE? Thank you!

When Firefox restarts, it just starts with https://www.google.com instead of my previously opended tabs and windows (including my standard fastened tabs of gmail, google+, google calender and facebook). The problem arrived with version 29. The option of using the last session as standard is greyed out in settings.

I'll go back to the last working version of Firefox while you fix this one. Version 29 is obviously not ready for use yet.
