When I try and search my history in my library, there are no results. I can click on the today, this week, etc. folders and all of the history is there.

The history itself is saved. Also, it will let me search my bookmarks without any problems. Does this mean that the "places" folder is damaged? If not, what can i do to f… (read more)

If I change my password for one of my bookmarks I no longer get a prompt to remember the new password, but it still remembers my other bookmarks passwords. What's up?

I needed to change the password for one of my bookmarks, when I substituted the new password in the appropriate place I didn't receive a prompt for remembering the new password. I then deleted the old password from saved password in the security tab in preferences and still no prompt. Where do I turn on the prompt which I'm guessing has been inadvertently turned off?

I've put together this iWeb09 site which works tolerably well in Safari, IE, Chrome, but in FF3.6.8 the hyperlink text buttons take a while to resolve, each being preceded by a ghosted rectangle named 'spaceimage'. Are there any fixes to this unprofessional appearance? Many thanks for any clues, Robert.

When ever I shut down my Mac computer resets all my preferences to Safari and Mail. I do not want to use either of these programs - I use Firefox and Thunderbird. It is really annoying to have to set my preferences over and over and over again. I have set them through both the software preferences location as well as the System Preferences locations. It makes no difference to do one or the other or both this continues to happen. I realize this is more likely a Mac problem but hoping someone here has come across this and figured how to deal with it! Thank you.

I'm on ff 3.5.5 for Mac. I've been prompted twice to download latest version. Each time I have dragged the ff icon from applications folder to the dock and all seems ok. But next time I start ff it says I'm on 3.5.5 and should update to latest version!

There was no "update failed" message I wonder whether I'm doing the right thing when I drag to the dock. There's only one ff icon in the applications folder. The first ti… (read more)

There was no "update failed" message

I wonder whether I'm doing the right thing when I drag to the dock. There's only one ff icon in the applications folder. The first time I was prompted to update it showed that days date next to the icon as if the update was successful. The second time was a few days later but I think it was still the same date next to the icon (25/8/10) I've only just noticed that (on 10/9/10) so can't be sure but I'm sure the second time was around 2nd or 3rd of Sept.

Also, I am running two versions of ff- one is english, the other is the Italian version. They can't be opened at the same time but they seem to talk to eachother in the background, so to speak, because when I open one after a long gap, it opens with all the history and settings of the other one, right up to the last website I went to. I think I closed both when updating because it prompts you to close all programmes and restart (I think/ remember) so I just clicked ok to that prompt.

By the way, I got the prompt to update twice for BOTH the Italian and the English version- so 4 times altogether so it would seem that ff does recognise them as separate but still has problems concluding the update for each separate one respectively.

Thank you very much if you can help.

Firefox does not ask whether I want to save multiple tabs when I close, and I must sign in to every website every time I go there (even ones that I've been to 100 times). Why? How do I fix this?

How do I get Firefox to show the proper font and layout of a site when it keeps loading an older version of that site? (I have cleared cache and cookies already)

We are having a new website developed and my designer has made changes to it. Despite clearing the cache and cookies, the fonts are not showing up as the actual fonts. Also, the form fields at the bottom are extending beyond the border on the right side of the box on my screen, but this does not happen for other people using Firefox - it is only on my computer.

I AM ON A MAC.

I received a suggestion to reload the page and bypass the cache with:

  • Press "Cmd + Shift + R" (MAC)

BUT - this did not work.
