I have done a second install of FF on a Win XP laptop and since then I noticed that every time I start FF I get the "Almost done!" screen. My initial install is on a WIN 7 PC and it too now offers that screen every time I start FF. I have entered details but there is no clear option -- like an "OK" button -- of what to do after completing the "Almost done!" screen.

I have created an account and password but I am never prompted for a password and I do not see where to sign in or what signing in achieves since FF runs as normal with this extra tab opened that seems to need attention.

Closing Firefox in Mac OS X works from menus but not always using shortcut Command+Q. This became possible in Yosemite and El Capitan. I suspect there is a bug in teh system, which is exploited by web designers to prevent closing the windows. pLease investigate. I am running 10.11.1 on a MacBook Air.

Thanks!

So for whatever reason while I'm using firefox for some randomly unknown reason it will freeze, HOWEVER if I am watching a video for instance and click the pause button while it is frozen the video will pause, I can change the sound and stuff but nothing changes visually. I can even switch to a different tab, click a video link maybe and can hear the video starting up and I can play pause it BUT the screen will still show me the old tab.

I'm trying to restore my bookmarks from my old hard drive to my new pc. I located the automatic backup file, chose the old with the most recent date, and successfully imported them into Firefox on the new PC. HOWEVER, these are bookmarks from YEARS ago, definitely not the list I was using before. I'm just baffled and not sure where to find the recent backup. I went where Firefox instructions said to go, appdata/roaming/ etc/ etc/etc

I use a internet based system at work and I want to open a second session in a second window, which the system allows. But in order for it to work the second window has to be a new session. Internet Explorer has a New Session option under file. I have not been able to find any thing like it on Firefox. I tried opening the second window as a Private Window but that did not work. Really DO NOT want to use Internet Explorer. Any ideas?

I opened google search to look for information relating to "Euler's theorem". Every site I tried gave me an "error 404". I tried other random queries and the same thing happened. However, when I copied the link manually and pasted it into a blank page, I connected to the site. But this is tedious. What is happening?

Firefox not showing certificates list when using Components.interfaces.nsIX509CertDB in .cfg file

I have an autoconfig (.cfg file) script which adds a trusted certificate into firefox as displayed in https://mike.kaply.com/2015/02/10/installing-certificates-into-firef… (read more)

I have an autoconfig (.cfg file) script which adds a trusted certificate into firefox as displayed in https://mike.kaply.com/2015/02/10/installing-certificates-into-firefox/.

The certificate gets installed correctly in every Firefox version from 35 to 42. There's a small "side" anomaly, for Firefox >= 40: Firefox doesn't show the certificates list in "options" -> "advanced" -> "certificates" -> "view certificates" when the line

   var certdb = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/security/x509certdb;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsIX509CertDB);

is uncommented. Unfortunately, when that line is missing, no certificate gets installed. If the line gets commented, Firefox lists the certificates, which include also the one registered through autoconfig.

Is this secondary anomaly a firefox bug? Is Firefox dropping support to this function over time? Thank you

i want to go back to my older version - the one that supported me being able to get my options to pop up instead of in a tab- which this one does not support. however, when i go to the webpage with all of the older versions, it is confusing- i guess they made it that way for those of us who are not developers to discourage us. so how do i actually go back to the previous version? and no i don't want a lecture. i choose to use a version that is right for me- not one that has been forced on me.
