This is the second time I have installed a windows 7 update and all my extensions are disabled with no button to enable in the extension window. Last time I reinstalled them all, which is a pain. This time it happened after installing update "kb/3006137." I am using Firefox 36.0. Windows 7 64 bit. Any solutions to this problem? I don't like the thought of going back before the update, since critical updates are critical.

Since 4 or 5 updates ago, I have been unable to access the options on Firefox. It gives me a blank popup. It is odd seeing just a blank screen and unable to get to anything. All the other pulldown menus work. The addons option works, but I just can't get into my general options. I was desperate enough to try Seamonkey, but I really want Firefox (and yes, Seamonkey's works).

Question above states it all. I reinstalled Yahoo toolbar. No help. I do have the Yahoo toolbar but all my customizing is gone on it. I can't right click on toolbar to add stuff. I made the mistake of updating to Fox 36 on three different computers. They are all the same now. Lost toolbar. Did not update friends computer and it is OK with showing all the customization on Yahoo toolbar. (35.0) I need to go back to Fox 35. After update to 36.0, there was another update but it didn't help. Thanks

Hello,

I would like to know if it's possible to disable all those suggestion on the firefox startpage (about:home) Right now i got that "try firefox Hello" that's killing me a little bit inside everyday. I would like to have the regular firefox startpage (just the fox with the globe), without ads.

Is this possible ?

As far as I can tell, my Firefox sync interval is set to 15 minutes (i.e. 600000 milliseconds), which is WAY too frequent for me. I want to change my Mozilla sync interval to once a day (i.e. 86400000 milliseconds). I followed the instructions below, but when I close and restart Firefox the interval I had set is changed back to what it was before.

Please help.

Thanks you!

Fritzman


Instructions: 1) Type “about:config” at the address bar 2) Search for “services.sync.syncInterval” 3) Change the value from 3600000 (milliseconds = 3600 seconds = 60 minutes) to any value (in millisecond) of your choice 4) Close and restart Firefox
