On my previous computer, I imported my favorites/bookmarks from Google Chrome into Firefox. I accessed them using an "Imported from Google Chrome" folder on my Firefox bookmarks bar, and this setup worked perfectly.

Now I have a new computer, and I would like to export these favorites/bookmarks (previously imported from Chrome) to my new P.C. I've tried the import/export option, copying/pasting to an external hard drive, and dragging to an E.H.D., but nothing works. Any ideas on how to transfer these imported Chrome favorites to my new P.C.?

Thanks for your help.

Hello. Recently I got a strange issue in my history sidebar on Firefox Ver. 35 beta.

Today I noticed I have a "(no title)" folder on the history sidebar when I set the sort view to date and site. I tried to delete it by clicking on delete and on forget about this site but it doesn't gets removed.

I noticed I had this entry in 4 different dates which are in today's history, in last 7 days history, in this month history and on November's history. The rest of the days/months doesn't have such entry.

I know it has to do with the places.sqlite file since I removed it (previous backup of my profile folder). Obviously the history all of it disappeared (my bookmarks and bookmarks toolbar weren't affected) and the empty history only showed the homepage I have set for Firefox to open when I run the browser.

I really don't know what triggers this behavior. Other than that everything is working normally. No crashes, no slowdowns, no nothing. Just the "(no title)" issue.

As you can see on the screenshot, that entry only has the copy, delete and forget about this site options available, the rest are grayed out, as in not available.

I thought in ask because I was unable to remove that entry. And I don't want to lose my whole history because I have a lot of sites I visit there.

Maybe adding a way for this kind of entries to be removed would be a nice solution.

Thank you in advance :)

When I go to the Iheart.com web site I get this error message"Specified PLAYER cannot function in this environment" and I don't get sound on any web sites. I do get sound on the same sites using Internet Explorer. The upgrade to Firefox 35 was just now installed but it did not make any difference.

I have installed Adobe Flash numerous times but it never shows up in the add-ons manager. All of these functions work in Internet explorer but not in Firefox.

I do not want Yahoo Search as my home page, but when I change to the home page I want, either through using the "options" button or dragging the page I want to the "home" icon, the next time I open the program, the Yahoo Search page is the opening page. The search bar also reverts back to Yahoo. I like Google, not Yahoo. Why doesn't the program preserve my choices? I am not a computer neophyte. I know how to change my home page and search. The program is not saving my choices.

To check what version downloaded the far left window stated it was Firefox 35. I was directed to open the Menu icon and click on the Help ?. Well when I clicked on the menu it opened and there was no Help icon and there wasn't the ? character either. so apparently this isn't a current version of Firefox. Since I have to use a Public computer to access the internet and I have tried every public source of computers there is I have to try and get the most up to date version of Firefox. On 01/13/2015 the supposed current version of Firefox is not as described. I am currently dealing with Medical record fraud with every Health Care provider I can go to. The Medical record fraud is so extensive I cannot get the X-rays of my broken left Calcaneus that since 12/24/2013 every X-ray taken of my broken Calcaneus and my \untreated fractured skull for over 1 year now. It took me over 1 year to finally get a Disabled Person Placard because every Dr. I saw refuse to fill out the paper work.

Hello,

One of our staff recently changed her password which is used for the proxy.

I've updated the credentials in network preferences and it seems to work fine for other browsers (Chrome and Safari) but Firefox does not seem to work.

All other settings in FF should be correct.

Can anyone tell me how to update credentials for the proxy?

Thanks in advance.

I was reading the new other day about Window 10 will have new Internet Browser call "Spartan".. But I'm having doubt! I don't see a reason to leave Firefox once I upgrade to Window 10 Operating System.

I'm hoping by the time Window 10 come out, that Programmers on Firefox will finally release 64bit Firefox browser but of course with 32bit just in case some software only work with 32bit.

At the moment I got Window 7 Operating System.. I may wait a while after released of the Window 10 just in case there lot of major bugs issue.

Anyone here got doubt on Spartan? heh
