Ever since the new update (3.6.11) My favs & history won't show up in the url bar as I type. Anyone else having this prob or know how to solve? Also, its not a privacy setting issue, ive double checked this. For that matter, when I try to adjust my privacy settings to custom, the setting bounces back to remember all. I don't know if this is an update glitch or an add-on glitch. All I know is the previous 3.6.10. wasn't doing this.

Help if ya can, please and thanks. ;)

When I updated from 3.6.11 to 3.6.12 this morning on my Mac OS X 10.4.11, none of my bookmarks were imported.

When I tried to use the restore option, it wouldn't work. I downloaded another 3.6.12 version thinking it may have had a glitch. It also didn't have my bookmarks and wouldn't restore them. In desperation I copied an 3.6.3 version of Firefox from an older Mac onto the one I'm using and was able to restore the bookmarks. However, I have to restore the same file twice before all the bookmarks are restored. But when I try to organize the bookmarks, none of them show up in the Library window. And if I close Firefox and restart it, all the bookmarks are lost and I have to restore them again. Even new bookmarks that I add in are lost on restart. Any suggestions?

Just a suggestion...

I am using Firefox on many sites. Among them, some are in french while other are in english. No problems while reading. But, when we are writing something, it would be very nice if Firefox was able to switch to french/english, provide for example an associative list of languages/URLs

After a recent update, the Bookmarks menu has an extra folder called "All Bookmarks" which appears to be a copy of the bookmarks. It is causing problems and how do I fix it?

I recently updated Firefox. The Bookmarks menu shows a new menu item called "All Bookmarks". It appears to be a copy of the bookmarks. When I try to add a new bookmark, the All Bookmarks folder is the only one shown in the dialog. I tried deleting the All Bookmarks folder, but then nothing is shown in the dialog when I try to add a new bookmark.

If I do add a new bookmark, it is put under the All Bookmarks folder and does not show up under the top-level item I want it under. Any ideas about what I can do to fix this.

The update went normally without my intervention.

Thanks

There seems to be a javascript issue on youtube (+ other sites), as nothing happens when I click my username "tab" next to Sign Out, where a menu should expand. I've unintalled FF, reinstalled, removed most addons, and checked settings. Works in Chrome.

Also on youtube there's an issue with "James Blunt, live from London" bar at the top of the page not disappearing when I click the X.

The Firefox icon often disappears from the toolbar when I go to another window like Outlook or Media Player. When I close down all other windows it reappears again. What can I do about that?

When it has disappeared I can open Firefox again using the menu or the opening icon on the toolbar, but then it only shows up blank, so without the tabs that were opened before. Closing down all other icons on the toolbar is the only way to make the Firefox icon reappear and for me to open Firefox again with all my tabs. Please excuse my English, the jargon is difficult.

Any link or button which is processed with Javascript causes firefox to hang. Its window doesn't responsing, however, after some seconds, a small window (that seems like a js-alert window) is shown. This window has 2 buttons, but there's no text in a whole window. Window's title in taskbar is just "Untitled window". If i close this window, firefox hangs again for a few seconds (the main window is having artifacts of other windows until that small window will be shown again)

In certain cases, after i kill the main window process, there is appeared the requested by link window.

I've got these bugs on Gmail options page, for example (but that trouble finding me everywhere on the net, on forums, sites, portals etc.)

I've tried to disable all the plugins, remove my ~/.mozilla, rebuilding firefox – no results.

Firefox is built on Gentoo linux OS. `emerge --info firefox` can be found here: http://pastie.org/1318950

Here are some screenshots: http://images.netbynet.ru/imgs/86fd071c0143d6977f9bce91585da346.png http://images.netbynet.ru/imgs/128419a536bec6e65a940e0546aa6741.png

Hi,

I've trawled through so many forums to find an answer to my problem - perhaps it's quite unique.

About a year ago my firefox address bar's autocomplete stopped working at all. I have the latest version and I've tried all the tricks around dumping the cache etc. Anyway, I got a new Mac yesterday and I opened up Firefox and everything worked as it should - great.

However, I moved all my files/settings/applications etc across from my ole mac via migration assistant and now firefox does not work properly on that user account. So, I have two user accounts on the same mac, both running the same software applications. The user account with all the old files etc is the one I want to continue to use but Firefox won't work properly on it.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled, updated the version, cleared the cache...everything I can think of.

I'm sick of Chrome crashing on me.

Can anyone help???

Once again Bookmarks has become completely non-functioning. I have tried all the solutions mentioned in the Support site and nothing works. I have tried using Windows Restore, to a date before the problem occurred. I have even tried completely un-installing and re-installing Firefox and the problem still exists, even default bookmarks do not display. Importing from Internet Explorer does not work although Firefox says it has. Can someone provide an answer or I will have to revert to using Internet Explorer which I have not done for years.
