I don't know why firefox suddenly decides to start in the default settings, and I lose all my bookmarks, history, desktop settings, etc.., and I get just a basic page with nothing on it? My laptop gets windows updates everyday and my security settings are up to date. I also have only one profile user on this laptop, so please help me solve this issue..

And why this does not happen with Internet Explorer, and only Firefox? makes me hate to use Firefox because it is so unstable.

Besides the above I am also noting an issue with my godaddy webmail -- normally when you start to type an email address it pops a list based on your typing to select from... now when I type the first letter it simply pops in an email address and shows a cursor for the next one. If I back up and start over it works fine, but never on the first address.

This doesn't happen in my other browsers.

Locking duplicate thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/970859]

Somethaing added a HUGE amount of bookmarks to my bookmarks toolbar folder (more than a thousand). When I try to select even one bookmark, Firefox hangs for 2-3 minutes. Deleting (I cant tell if it is deleting, there are so many) can take longer. The bookmarks backup file is over 2 megabytes long. I don't want to start from a clean disk, I have bookmarks I want to save. Used to be able to edit with a text editor. I am open to suggestions, thanks in advance for any help.

The above runs automatically every day. I am concerned that the two tabs that do appear are malware so I believe this auto run needs to be removed. I have used Ffox for about 10 years and have never seen Ffox auto run so this is very out of the ordinary for me. I have searched Ffox help and don't see any reference to anything similar to this problem.

My machine is an HP laptop ~1 month old running Win8 with an Intel i7 processor, with Avast free antivirus.

Thanks for your help, Cali 54

firefox pauses indefinitely when I send an email. I usually have to do this 2 times for it to work. What can I do ?

I have to everyother time re-send the email. Because nothing happens, when I send it, it appears, or it gets frozen up & just has the mouse rotating blue in color. I then have to wait 5 mins+ to resend the email. And then I see that it has sent 2 emails to the same address. It may work normal for 2 or 3 times in a row, then it does this for a few times with other emails... Its very inconsistent ! I don't have this happen with IE.

Also if I copy & paste a link from any website, only with Firefox does this happen. I do not see it highlighted. So whoever receives my email msg has to copy & paste it into the address bar, & hit enter, when they receive my email. When using Internet Explorer I do not have this going on. It is highlighted for me.. What's with this ? This is only an issue with Firefox, I don't have this with Chrome or Opera, or Internet Explorer, but prefer to use Firefox.

I would like to know how to remedy this.. thankyou, Cyrus
