I just ran into this the other day, but it's become a major issue. The exceptions I enter into the popup blocker don't persist from session to session; as long as at least one instance of Firefox remains open the exception list is there, but after I close Firefox and reopen it I have no exceptions left. I only need a handful of exceptions, but I don't want to have to type them in every time I access those web sites!

I was NAGGED into upgrading from Firefox 28 (Which was working FINE) to FF 29. EVERYTHING about it SUCKS. NOIA is broken. Cannot download classic restore add on or ANY add on for that matter.

What were the developers thinking ESPECIALLY when the classic restore has been downloaded over ONE MILLION times.

That has to tell you something about perhaps leaving it the eff alone.

Of course I did not image the computer before I upgraded to 29 so not I have to spend hours trying to unwind what the upgrade did

We're running puppy linux so downgrading become a little more problematic

Seriously guys, you forced the FOUNDER out of the organization for expressing his views on a subject and then you cr*pped FF 29 out?

Maybe it's not too late to get him back and FIX what you have done

Really pissed off about this

My You Tube won't open either from original site or redirected videos, saying "Server not found". This occurs through Firefox, Chrome and Safari alike. I use Mac Book Pro OS X 10.8.5 I recently had a very intrusive YAHOO Browser take over the scenario without warning and didn't allow my normal Google search. I got rid of Yahoo apparently...but it affected this You tube issue it seems ? What to do ? Cheers

I've been using Firefox for years and never had a problem that wasn't easily fixed. However, recently Firefox is unable to download videos from youtube. I use download helper. When the save button is mashed the blue download arrow appears.

It's a real basic problem but it has me stumped. Any ideas? Thank you!

Hi Using FF version 31 on windows 8.1 (work PC) and FF latest version on new mac (installed new yesterday). Imported bookmarks from Chrome and set up FF on mac. Installed FF on windows 8.1 today and logged in sync. Message that sync will start momentarily but hours later no activity - I assume this is a quick sync process. Please can you assist with a solution? Many thanks! Craig

Instead of showing certain characters/ASCII, it instead shows gray boxes with 4 letters/numbers. I have the "allow pages to choose their own fonts" checked, but it is the same with it on and off.

It was like this since I installed firefox, and fiddling with the font options did nothing. :/

My website is on Firefox. It's getting ads on it from adsense, but I can't access the adsense account from Firefox. I can only get there from Explorer or Chrome. I'm also making almost no money, 87 cents, in several months. I feel that the adsense and the website are not coordinating. Could anyone give me some insight into this. I've spent hours and tried everything I know to work out the situation. Please help. Thanks. Mary Ann

I have already tried adding a boolean named "services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.uiCustomization.state" and set it as "true" according to this answer (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1022917). But it doesn't help with anything... Is there some way to tell my Firefox to sync my customized interface (such as "do not show menu bar" and "do not show search bar" ? Waiting for your help. Thanks. P.S.: It will be better if you can answer this question in Simplified Chinese!
