I would like to delete my browsing history that is over three months old. I was trying to just delete from the history, but I cannot do more than one site at a time. Is there a way to delete multiple sites at one time or set up to automatically delete everything older than three months? I know that I can clear recent history easily, but it is the not recent history I want to delete easily.

How do I switch off a failed update message

For a while, Firefox has been unable to update in the background and has given (accurate) failed update messages every time updates have come in. I have resolved this by downloading the full install file and doing a manual update.

This time, I also got an (apparently inaccurate) update failed message, after a manual update, then again after a reboot, then again after an uninstall and reinstall, even though the troubleshooting information page shows I am running v22.0 (see details below).

This looks like an obscure registry problem, but if the message is correct, how do I fix it; if not, how do I switch it off?

The browser is Firefox v22 (updated from v21) and I'm running Windows 7 Professional.

I tried to restart Firefox with add-ons disabled, and the problem was gone, so I tried to disable them one by one, but that didn't work.

The problems appeared after the update to Firefox 22.0, and it "works" in every input box...

I've turned the "Save Password" feature on & off, hit save and even rebooted my computer and nothing I do will cause the "Save Password" box to pop open and give me a chance to save my passwords. It does pop open for a few sites, but for most it does not pop open!

I updated Firefox, which is my absolute favorite browser, and it is being extraordinarily slow. I can't get anything done as far as working goes on my computer. I am currently running Chrome. Although that browser is faster than my car, it has few options and is far less easy to navigate than Firefox. Can you help me to understand why Firefox is having these issues since the update? Thanks.

I found a rather large .dmp file located in my Firefox install directory: c:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\core.20130617.XXXXXX.XXXXX.XXXX.dmp It appears that the core file is tagged with a date stamp; the subsequent "X's" are other numerical digits but I'm masking those out since I'm not sure they're relevant. Is it safe to remove this? Note that this file doesn't appear in about:crashes.

When I type the first "w" of a web address in the location bar, a web address autopopulates that is not in the pull down list, browsing history or bookmarks. The same address populates every time and only with one "w" of the first "www" of the address. I have tried clearing all history and cookies, resetting Firefox and reinstalling but the problem persists. The only way I have found to stop it is to set the privacy preferences for location bar suggestions to suggest Nothing, but that eliminates a feature I find useful. The only thing I haven't tried is deleting my Firefox profile. I am using a Mac running OS 10.8.4.
