I have a site that I use for work where each time you go to the site to log in it creates a unique session address but I need to have the general address bookmarked. I can't bookmark the site until after I perform the search.

So I type https://worldcat.org/wms and begin the search. That address is added to as the search progresses to the log in screen.

Every time I have started Firefox since November 14 (or so), I have been getting sync errors.

Official status page: https://services.mozilla.com/status/

Sample error log: https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=90EF9D0CFFFF0B22!50647&authkey=!ACUOT1NEZTynJsk&ithint=file%2ctxt

Is there anything I can do about this, or is the sync server really down?

It does not matter what I am trying to load, from opening emails to shopping sites to watching cbs programming. The problem started a little over a week ago and I have tried the measures indicated in my question. I have also taken my computer to a national computer fix-it outlet and they were not sure what to do. The problem does not happen when I use Internet Explorer but I truly prefer Mozilla. Can you help?

I set up my preferred icons history, print, home etc in the places I like them yet every time I turn off my PC the next day they are back to the standard set up & I have to do them all again, more than a little bit irritating as it has never been a problem before & only started happening when I upgraded to 33.1 Things like this seem to happen every time there is an upgrade, it is getting to the point where after years of using Firefox I am seriously considering looking around for a new default browser.

As if to illustrate my point when I just restarted Firefox after installing the troubleshooter add-on all my custom icon settings are gone AGAIN.

I am on a webpage that I want and I click on a relevant link for more info re that page. The link opens correctly but so does another page that I didn't ask for and has no connection or relevance to what I am doing. I then have to cancel the unwanted page and the relevant one stays open. It' very annoying and can you please tell me how to stop it. It's only started happening recently. Thanks - I hope

Hello, today when I got home from university I opened up my Firefox browser and then as it loaded my homepage then another tab opened up with the web address http://nickpjason.github.io/html5loop/ and it keeps asking me to download and install this youtube video downloader extension which I do not want to do.

It opens up everytime I open a new window of firefox, is there anyway I can get rid of this? I thought I would ask FireFox here if there was a way to get rid of it then asking the GitHub help forums

I am not receiving any emails to resent my password. This is utterly frustrating. Firefox already has my email as JMARKSCHWARTZ at GMAIL dot COM which is correct so why am I not receiving any emails. I need to reset my password because I forgot what it was. It should be an EASY process to reset one's password. Thank you.

Please help with following Craig'slist issue: I can't reach any receiptant using a Craig'slist mailing address


craigslist DNS Outage November 24, 2014 by Jim Buckmaster

At approximately 5pm PST Sunday evening the craigslist domain name service (DNS) records maintained at one of our domain registrars were compromised, diverting users to various non-craigslist sites.

This issue has been corrected at the source, but many internet service providers (ISPs) cached the false DNS information for several hours, and some may still have incorrect information.

If you are unable to reach the craigslist site, please ask your network provider or tech staff to flush all *.craigslist.org and *.craigslist.com entries (A,CNAME,SOA) from their DNS servers.
