After a refresh FF was not responding correctly so it was uninstalled and reinstalled. I have it back up but now cannot see my saved logins even though I can see the exclusions list just not the passwords. I am using ver. 49 and copied both the logins and key files from the backup into the new "default" profile. When I open the logins file in Scratchpad I can see the data but each entry has a "null" after the "httpRealm" entry:

'id': 1,

     'hostname': 'https://www.google.com',
     'httpRealm': null,
     'formSubmitURL': 'https://www.google.com',

Other than this the file "looks" normal.

Can't find a simple solution to preventing Firefox 49 from creating duplicate bookmarks everytime I add a bookmark.

At least since updating to v.49, whenever I add a bookmark to a folder or sub-folder, I get a duplicate in unsorted bookmarks. The duplicate entry cannot be deleted (delete option is grayed out). Deleting the entry in the folder/sub-folder deletes both entries. Recreating the bookmark in the folder/sub-folder just recreates the duplicates.

Solutions on Mozilla support involve deleting control files, modifying the registry, removing firefox, re-installing, etc. l-- sorry going through something like that is not why I have a firefox browser. Is there a simple solution to this problem? Is the firefox community working on preventing these duplicates in future releases? Is there at least a workaround?

BTW: I don't think this is a Sync problem. The machine I sync with is powered down 90% of the time.

For about a week I have been getting a pop up every time I attempt to log onto Firefox. I always click 'no'. Yesterday I installed the latest version of Firefox (49.0) and today my pop up problem continues. I have run antivirus, and malware/spyware scans which have found no problem. I couldn't take a screen shot, but am including photos of the pop up I took with my camera. I need to know if this is from Firefox and I should click 'yes' and proceed (but what is the point? I've checked on Firefox's updater site and it says I have the latest version) Or is this NOT from Firefox? If it isn't, does anyone know how to stop the annoying pop ups? Please advise me.

After the last one or two updates, the text size in my bookmarks toolbar, my search bar, and the tabs have all from a size 10 or 12 down to a size 6 or 8. This makes them very hard to read. I have gone through all of the menus and can't find a way to change them back to normal - even a small increase would help. Right now the text is small enough to allow 13 bookmarks in the bar. I used to have seven. All bookmarks do work, but it's a matter of have to almost crawl into the screen to read them. I also tried the refresh with no help. I have the latest update, 49.0., using Win 10 with the newest updates.

There isn't any pattern, sometimes it will run for hours (or even days) and other times it will crash after few seconds to a few minutes and crash maybe 2~7 times on re-start. I've tried the troubleshooting tips and checked everything is updated but nothing seems to work. It has been happening for probaly 18 months on various releases, I was expecting 49.01(? whatever number is latest release in Sept 2016) to fix all the issues but still the same problem. It's only happening on Linux based OS, Laptop with Win 10 has only had crashed one time in few months. I wasusing Mint 18 on laptop but it isn't very reliable on wireless connection . Opera isn't having a problem on desktop so I'm pretty sure it's NOT a hardware problem

When I get your typical "save" or "open" file dialogue, Firefox ALWAYS downloads no matter choice. Have already runned Firefox in Safe Mode to rule out any Add-On issues. This is starting to get very annoying, used to love opening PDF's in the built-in PDF-Viewer.

After a recent firefox update, I realized that I can no longer access my wrt120n linksys router. I go to 192.168.1.1, and it asks for the login info, which I enter. Then it asks for the info again. And again. Incessantly. Hitting cancel after many attempts just takes me to a 401 page. Oddly enough, I can log in fine in chrome, or ie. Router is up to date on firmware as well.

Firefox keeps crashing when trying to open the following sites: arconline.co.uk/ www.theforumbarrow.co.uk/ http://www.skiddle.com/

It does NOT crash with many others, for example: http://www.google.co.uk/ http://www.radiotimes.com/ http://www.facebook.com/ https://www.songkick.com/ http://www.bandmix.co.uk/

Here are the last few crash reports: bp-dac0a26c-a6a5-40a6-8319-851092160928 28/09/16 16:00 bp-7203a801-4025-42ad-ab66-5ebac2160928 28/09/16 15:58 bp-e7b1f6a4-3366-40ba-ab51-6c5212160928 28/09/16 15:07 bp-ccef5ec7-487f-406f-944d-5c5d72160928 28/09/16 15:02 bp-32db60c3-188e-4914-b9cd-3bec22160928 28/09/16 15:01 bp-dff136f9-e3dc-4dca-a8d2-2654a2160928 28/09/16 14:59 bp-d08e3ae5-887c-41e4-9c4a-c885e2160928 28/09/16 14:22 bp-132c3941-300a-4c8f-b706-d15d72160928 28/09/16 14:20

I've tried safe mode / disabling plugins, refreshing Firefox, emptying the cache and manually deleting almost all cookies (just kept a few for trouble free sites). I've shut down and restarted the machine along with doing the above.

For info, I have another PC still running XP that works fine.

Any help gratefully received!

Thanks,

Piers.

P.S. It just crashed again when I clicked on the 'show details' button next to the educated guesses about my current browser!
