Is there a single file in the profile folder that contains my container data, or more specifically, all containers I created and information about websites I assigned to particular containers?

Or is there any way to backup or export containers?

If you are trying to switch from one room to another and get this message, then your browser might not have released the connection to the previous room yet - click here to try again

If you keep getting this message then your browser haven't released the connection to the room you were in. This is known to be an issue with newer versions of some browsers, eg. Internet Explorer (it not closing down processes running Flash correctly). In that case you might need to end/kill the running browser process manually or restart your computer.

Another solution can be for you to try using another browser, eg. Firefox or Chrome (remember to install/allow Flash to run then)

The wonderful extension "Blacken" is suddenly hanging up Firefox with a yellow warning that a script is causing a slow-down. Actually, it pretty thoroughly hangs up the tab. A screen shot of the warning is attached.

This used to work very well, but sometime within the past couple of months it started to hang up Firefox. I've tried clearing the cache and increasing dom.max_script_run_time from 10 to 20, but to no avail.

Any idea what's up and how I can fix it?

When I attempt to highlight text in the search bar and address bar the text is not being highlighted. I know I am selecting the text because when I attempt to replace it with new characters the old text that is supposed to be highlighted is gone and replaced with the new ones. However, I cannot see what I highlight since the the typically blue highlight is not appearing. Even when I use keyboard shortcuts such as command + A to select all the text is not highlighted.

Some web pages like LinkedIn for example show a dark solid red background with black lettering.

I tried installing a theme and changing the settings in Firefox.

Opening the same pages in Chrome, they are normal and not red.

Could not find any articles on this other than ones pointing to themes.

Thanks,

I have Eset Smart Security Premium and had it's Passwordmanager installed in Firefox. This worked great until the update from Firefox about a month ago. Since then I cannot get it to work anymore. The Eset Passwordmanager icon disappeared and if I start the webpage with the Passwordmanager, it 'doesn't autofill the passwords anymore. Checking what the problem can be, I first saw that in firefocx add-ons the passwordmanager was moved to 'not supported' (in Dutch 'niet ondersteund') with the discription (translated from Dutch, so it may be a little different): Outdated extensions These extensions do not meet current Firefox standards and are therefore deactivated. Eset password manager autofill engine could not be verified for use in firefox and is disabled.

After reinstalling Eset in an attempt to fix the problem, the problem is still the same, but also the message above is gone. I contacted Eset, but they could fix it eather. They say the problem has to do with Firefox and they would come back to it, but until today it is still not solved. So therefore I trying to get help from Firefox, hoping I don't have to switch to another browser. Can you help me?

Thanks in advance and kind regards, Marcel
