I can highlight and delete information that is already in the location bar when I am on a website, but it will not let me enter in text. Typing in simple web addresses is impossible. I have to use the search bar for everything.

I upgraded my work laptop. For security reasons, I uninstalled FF on old laptop. Now, while setting up FF Sync on new laptop, it asked me for account information.

As I setup account months ago, I don't remember anything. I tried resetting my password, but the Username/Password comobo is not matching. I tried looking for an option to have my Username sent to registered email address, but that does not seem to be an option (wierd?).

I am stuck. Is there a way out of this sanctum ?

Thanks for any lead.

I can't direct my downloads: the browser defaults them to a temp file and then I can't find them

When I ask for a download, I get a choice of "open" or "save." I sometimes need to save rather than opening and saving, e.g., when I am downloading an "exe" file. When … (read more)

When I ask for a download, I get a choice of "open" or "save." I sometimes need to save rather than opening and saving, e.g., when I am downloading an "exe" file. When I chose "save," My old Yahoo browser gave me a dialogue box asking me where I wanted the download saved, e.g. to Desktop. My Mozilla browser, however, does not give me such a box but instead just begins saving. I believe it saves the download to a "temp" file which I then cannot locate and copy to the proper location.

Hello everyone!

I´m trying to migrate my firefox prefs, bookmarks and passwords from ubuntu 10.04 to windows 7. I found plenty of advice on migration from windows to linux though... when I tried copying my profile information into the profile folder under windows, that didn´t change anything, no passwords, no cookies, no bookmarks etc. What should I do now?

I have been unable to upgrade for almost a year. The upgrade loads partially, but won't complete.

I'm on Mac OS 10.6.7, computer is about a year and a half old. I think I may have had one successful upgrade very early on, to 3.5.2. Every time I've tried to upgrade since then, it starts but won't complete. It's getting to the point where this has got to be upgraded, and I simply can't get it to move. I've noticed Firefox has been crashing, which it almost never used to do. Help!!
