I believe I have this working on my other computer but don't know how I set it up or if I can. What I'd like is the ability to press the X in the corner and close my tabs, and then have them restored when I open firefox, but also be able to individually close each tab and have firefox bring me to the homepage upon opening again.

Firefox always crashes when opening console/inspecting elements (basically pressing F12 crashed the browser). I'm using the latest drivers for my GPU R9 380 (Catalyst 15.7). This issue was not happening on my last GPU (ati hd4850). I've disabled hardware acceleration for now and that fixed the crashing, but now fonts look blocky, like there is no anti-aliasing.

Is there a fix for my crashes or atleast a fix for the "blocky" text?

Here is a link to a crash report that happens when I press F12: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/3c669171-7282-452e-9701-5f4282150806

Thank you for your help.

After the 39.0.3 update on XPsp3, the keyboard is often unresponsive, i.e. the 'alt' key will not bring up the title bar menu or 'cont+n' will not open a new window. It was working fine before the update. Is this a common problem?

Every time FF automatically updates it wipes out my options settings such as use Adobe Reader to open PDF files and always ask where to download files. How can I make FF not change these options? If I wanted the default options I would set them to the default. I find this to be a VERY irritating feature of FF.

For the last month or so on my Mac, Firefox crashes whenever I go to Google Maps. I'm on OS X 10.9.4 and Firefox 39.0.3. I've seen some fix suggestions on this forum for Windows but nothing about Mac. This is the only site that crashes Firefox for me. I've been having to use Safari for mapping.

Thanks!

This just started happening. I highlight a web address or copy from a document and copy. But I try to paste it into a comment thread or on a web page, and it will not paste. This has happened before and I fixed it by restarting my computer. This time, it didn't work. I can cut and paste from Safari.

I place 10 sites in a bookmark folder named publishing. I want to find those websites again- how do I search for the folder publisher?

I have a few spare minutes and I'm writing a book. I was to self-publish it or e-publish it or I don't know. I search for websites dealing with publishing books and place them in a bookmark folder named publishing. Several days later I want to recall those sites I found to see which ones interest me. I do not know any of the url's, I only know I placed them in a folder called publishing. I have hundreds of bookmark folders and thousands of urls. I want to search for and find the folder publisher so I can look at the websites. Your instructions about the upper search windows bring up history of places (many) I've visited. Your bookmark tools: you can get a history, you can view recently bookmarked, used tags, show unsorted (in no particular order), You canorganize, crete new bookmarks and NEW folders, etc. and all kinds of other organizational stuff. You can view in columns by keyword... and a well hidden window pops up called search BOOKMARKS...not FOLDERS. I typed in publish and all I got back were urls with the name publish in their title. And finally you can sort - again bookmarks, not folders. I don't think I even found a place where you can alphabetize folders which would be some kind of start...going down the list to the "P's" until I found publish. And finally, but equally not helpful you can import and backup. NOWHERE can you search for a folder that I could easily find. I have been a programmer since the mid 70's and a web designer too - if I can't find it I need to hang up my keypad because I've lost it. (Is that a better description than "something is wrong, firefox is broken"? But by the way, thank you for having the professional courage and courtesy to at least make this kind of dialogue available - you are one of the few and that is why I like your company and your browser..now if you could just fix this little problem for me (as well as finally get a substitute for that lousy Adobe Flash...do I hear HTML5?) I'd be a very happy camper and do unsolicited ads for you to all my goofy friends. Thank you if you made it this far - you're a brave soul.

Only with the latest version (39.0.3) FF hangs during input keystrokes, recovers after a few minutes. Task Manager shows 0 to 1% CPU utilisation. Have tried the suggestions under FAQ but none seem to help, incl safe mode, places, sessionstore, reset. Causing an enormous waste of time trying to correct. Would like to return to a previous version if that's possible. Environment: Windows 7 home on Gigabyte GA-B85M-HD3 m/board with Intel G3240 CPU. Other Apps normally running: Thunderbird and ZoneAlarm Internet Security suite.

PS It has taken 15 mins to type this due to 3 times stopped responding !!

So, there's a way to "allow " firefox to use more RAM because it´s seems like there's some kind of limit If such a limit doesn't exist then why might be the reason firefox doesn't use more RAM when needed? My firefox keeps the RAM usage around 1GB when reach such limit.

this might help: Windows 10 (64bits). but the problem starts before the update (windows 8.1) intel core i5 1.8GHz 8GB of RAM. and 10 GB of Free space on th Hard Drive
