Where did I see that article on XYZ. I'd like to regain a train of thought/investigation. Is bookmarks and history all there is? In reading about "Activity Stream" this seemed like the solution but it seems to lack an awareness of clustered, goal-directed activity. Is "Top Sites" and "Highlights" all there is to Activity Stream? Looking for some deeper integration/intelligence around re-displaying my history.

First thanks for all the help with ff when I had a dying system. Now setting up ff 59.0.2 on a windows 10 box and need a basic bit of information.

In the previous version I had I could type for instance, 'imdb' and hit ENTER then I'd be taken right to the imdb page. Now a search engine page opens up. Only way I can go directly to a site is if I type the entire address as in, http://www.imdb.com/ Either one of these ways of navigating are an inconvenience.

What do I have to do to get ff to a state where I can type the site name, say tigerdirect, hit ENTER and go right to http://www.tigerdirect.com/ ?

Thanks in advance.

The firefox logo pops back to the apps logo list when I try to drag it down. I may have created a problem when I made a second Firefox and tried to drag it, too. On my screen it was called Firefox Alias. I dragged it to trash.

In a list of support articles, when I have scrolled to the bottom of the first page and hit NEXT, the next page loads in the same position, i.e. at the bottom of that page, as if I've already scrolled down. I have to scroll up to review all the articles, then down again to see the nav buttons. This happened on previous versions, not just 60.0.

e.g. "Law enforcement in many European countries served warrants at the same time, seizing servers expected to contain more evidence about the leaders of the ZeroAccess crime ring, which was devoted to "click fraud."


In this paragraph I want to highlight "enforcement" and "contain" simultaneously.

When will I learn that once I find a version of FF that works, not to update it? I was working with v20 for a long time, and it worked fine. Decided to update to latest version, and BAM! Videos don't play.

Tried safe mode, still same thing. No videos will play. Was fine this morning, but tried to watch CNN video and it would not play. Spinning circle just jumps around, doesn't spin. YouTube won't play either.

Portable version from Portable Apps works fine.

This started on Monday, I went to play the weekly tournament but all I got was a white screen with angry birds ad banners top and bottom. I have googled this and so far I have tried Updating flash, shockwave, java. I tried clearing cookies and cache, Uninstalling firefox and reinstalling, tried with my antivirus off, tried uninstalling my antivirus, tried updating graphics drivers. I cant think of anything else to try, I know it's a local issue as I have friends who tell me theirs is ok. Between Sunday (when i was able to play) and Monday, nothing on my laptop changed, except the fact that it wont load, I've tried several other games on facebook but this is the only one that wont load.

Hi, i just update today to firefox 26, and with my surprise the download box disappear, then i click on the download option (ctrl + j) and the bookmark open.

Are you devs out of your mind?

I use firefox for years and i love the separate download minibox where i can manage all my downloads, see the download speed, pause, resume and so on, why the hell you remove the best feature of your browser with this crappy bookmark/history integration no one ask? I really don't get it.

Please consider to revert this awfull change, at least make it optional so if i want to use the old download box i can use it.

If nothing will be done i'm forced to remove firefox from my pc and install chrome, after all these years with FF is a shame that you put in bad features like these withourt asking your community before.

Really disappointed, hope you revert the change.

when using an Adobe flash page a small window appears requiring a download (usually 10kb) to get past the grayed-out covering of the flash item. Ad blocker can stop download window, but then the flash page will not appear for use. Quote:

"Adobe Flash Player Settings Local Storage cdn.arenaconnect.arkadiumhosted.com is requesting permission to store information on your computer. Requested: up to 10 KB Currently Used: 0 kb (with) Allow & Deny buttons "

Of course, the "request" makes it impossible to get past the Deny to the flash page.
