Everytime I start a Firefox window the first time there is a certain delay, after the the delay Firefox ask me for my master password. That's fine! But if I start Firefox and move to a website which require a password which is stored in the Firefox password manager before the end of the delay, Firefox ask me instant for the master password. The problem is, if I start to enter my master password it often happens, that at the end of the first mentioned delay and in my writing process a second window with the master password opens. Isn't it possible to deactivate the second master password window if there is already one? Would love that feature and would improve my usability experience. Thank you so much, for what you do! Richard

Each time I attempt to attach a file to an e-mail, I receive the following error message "your file upload has failed, please try again". I use Windows XP and have removed Firefox and reinstalled the browser to the latest version as well as a previous version. I am wondering whether an add-on or extension needs to be disabled or enabled that would allow any file to be attached.

Often, when I start Firefox, it immediately crashes. But not always right away. Sometimes it takes a few seconds or I have to type something into Google or open a page and than it crashes. And sometimes it doesn't crash at all. It started on 31.03.2015 and I haven't been able to find the source. My plugins are updated, I am using the newest Firefox-Uptade, my Windows is updated, my Anti-Spyware programs detect no virus, even if I start it in the save mode (with deactivated add-ons) it crashes. Thunderbird also crashes, but not as much as Firefox. The only big change before Firefox started crashing is that I exchanged my 1GB RAM for 4GB RAM but I used RAM that is supposed to be compatible to my notebook.

I was renewing my System Mechanic software from iolo. I entered all of my credit card info and pressed the send button, or whatever the purchase button is, then Fire fox crashed! Is this just a coincidence or is there some nefarious code out there that now has my credit card information?

I have asked this question on numerous occasions in shops and to friends and am told it is possible by clicking on the web address however it would seem that Firefox does not allow this to be done as I have so far been unable to do this. I used to be able to do this on Xp but now find it impossible. I use this facility to enable me to go to a web page immediately instead of having to go via search or bookmark. I am having the same trouble with windows 8 on a different machine. Any help would be appreciated.
