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.

This is a development machine. I write software that runs in browsers, including yours. I would keep your browser current in terms of releases, except that the framework I use does not always keep up. I do try to keep up with your security releases. That is certainly worth the risk and effort. Your information says that the 'releases' update channel 'includes' security releases. How about an update channel that ONLY contains security releases?

And, by the way, how do I find out the number and properties of an impending update? I am only presented with a button to install a release. No information of what I am installing.

my desktop was not connected to internet for over a year, once it did, it downloaded a lot of updates, and now firefox is not automatically putting in my login info to some webpages i go to. password manager is correct, i followed all directions on it, and it matches what is on my laptop, which works fine. but i also had to download some program for the laptop that has left a 'key' type icon next to the home button. this icon directly opens the password manager on my laptop. i think i need that for my desktop. thanks, jay

In all the previous versions of firefox I've had no issues in the drop down menu when left-clicking to either open a link in a new tab or save highlighted text or even saving an image to my drive. However now with the latest update (20.0.1) I have come across something which disturbs me by the full length of the drop down menu (too long, too much stuff on it) and half the options are disabled, which makes it harder for me to surf the web as I am used to doing. I have taken a screenshot of my issue . I hope it will help. Also, that my OS is windows 7. http://www.darkworlds.se/images/other/firefx20bug.jpg

Добрый день. Браузер версии 20.0.1 (обновился вчера) от Яндекса. Все работало прекрасно. пока в один прекрасный день перестала быть активной кнопка в меню "Журнал -> Недавно закрытые вкладки". Она просто не активна. В чем может быть проблема?

Что проделано:

- Браузер запускался в безопасном режиме;
- Вручную отключались все дополнения;
- Проводились обновления браузера (из пункта меню "Справка").

Ничего из вышеперечисленного непомогло. Это возникло за несколько версий до 20.0.1 (точно не помню даже когда)

Попутно с этим возникла и другая проблема: при открытии новой вкладки нажатием на + создавались сразу две новые. Эта проблема вроде бы решилась, хотя сам не знаю как именно. Также не помогали ни отключение дополнений ни обновления.

Более подробная информация о браузера прилагается.

Спасибо.

How to save all files associated with a website?

I am an administrator (but not the creator) of a website that I am responsible for updating. I do not have the documentation that I need to carry out some of my tasks. So I thought I could find out enough simply by saving the site from Firefox. The last time I did this (several years and versions of Firefox ago), there was a "Save As" command that would save the main HTML file in a selected folder AND save all the referenced subsidiary files in a unique subfolder, so constructing a local version of the site. When I tried this today in v20.0.1, both "Save As" options created a single file of the current page with all the original cross-references left as links only. Is there some other way for "dumping" the whole application onto my local hard drive?

I have had a lot of problems with Firefox crashing. Then I get a dialogue box that pops up and says that windows must be restarted to finish a previous install or something like that. It also keeps going back to 20.0 after I have installed 20.0.1 5 times now.

'Bookmarks' gadget : Double-clicking the golden-star gadget in the address-bar previously popped-up a useful little window for editing the bookmark - this no longer happens. (For un-bookmarked sites, single-clicking the white-star turns it gold, & the bookmark is saved to 'Unsorted' - this is correct & ok, but double-clicking doesn't work.) 'Downloads' gadget : Clicking on the new down-arrow gadget normally does nothing. Although sometimes it pops-up a balloon-comment with 'Open all downloads' (or similar), but clicking on this normally does nothing. Although sometimes it does open the full 'Library' window. Strange. After starting in safe-mode, double-clicking the 'Bookmarks' gadget seems to work ok, but the new 'Downloads' arrow-gadget still does not work.

My main email address is with Bell South, and I have other email address like yahoo and Google. When I click on 'sign out' in the upper right corner of my Bell South home page, I get a notice from Firefox that says, "Firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page."

I then have to click on the 'allow' button on the right of that notice.

I don't have that notice come up at any other time when I'm going back and forth from one email address to another.

Why has this started doing this? And how do I correct this so I don't have to continually do this?

I tried your suggestions, and cannot get it to work.

Just upgraded from XP to Win 7. In past, clicking on "show all bookmarks" opened bookmarks list which persisted until closed. Now, the list disappears as soon as I do anything else. Firefox 20.0.1. How do I make the list persist so I can work on the bookmarks without losing the page every time? "Persist" would include adding an icon to the tray.

When I have firefox open on my office computer (not the one I am using now) and visiting a webpage or even my bank account, there are distortion waves going across my screen. Sometimes only half the screen and then it will go to the entire screen. The waves go away for a few seconds when I change pages. If I use a different browser it does not do this. I tried uninstalling from add remove programs and re installed and it still does the same thing. I like Firefox but it is unuseable like this. I hope someone can help with this. Thanks

I had a really weird defect rendering text and pictures. Searched in the net and found out the resolution to change the value of gfx.direct2d.disabled from false to true. Things went better and now I see pages well. However I still discover issues especially with drop-down menus - I can't see any of them. Also if for example my download finishes the little pop-up window which appears at the bottom right corner is visualized in the same manner - blurred white-blue lines with nothing that can be distinguished. I'd be glad if I could send you a snapshot. The problem does not persist in other browsers , so it's not a hardware one.
