Wanting to register my frustrations with the FF integrated version of Pocket. Problems with the new integrated version of Pocket: 1, The visible recognition that a site had been added to Pocket no longer works. Prior to integration, the Pocket icon turned red when a site was added. Now there is no way to tell. 2. Pocket dropdown next to icon has been removed and added to Bookmarks. It is beyond me to understand who thought this was a good design concept. It's cumbersome and annoying. I don't have bookmark tab open on my browser so finding it is unnecessarily time consuming.

On my Mac, I rolled back to the old version of Pocket some time ago, yet l have the integrated version on my PC desktop. It drives me crazy and I want to roll that back too, I'm just not sure if it's still possible?

There is a line in about:config that is suspected of causing issues with preferences sync (no firefox preferences are synced).

"services.sync.engine.prefs.modified"

It is set to false by default, and when i change it to True it will change back to false after a Sync.

Also when i try to change that line a new one appears called "services.sync.engineStatusChanged.prefs.modified" and it is set to True?

I have tried changing "services.sync.engine.prefs.modified" setting to True on both of my PCs (windows 7) that are used for sync, but it always resets to false.

It looks like the firefox sync server is enforcing the "false" setting for some reason?! Is there any way to force "services.sync.engine.prefs.modified" to stay on True?

duplicate of /questions/1038370

The latest update of Firefox installed Foxydeal without my permission!!! Please inform me immediately how to remove this program. It is unwanted, intrusive, bothersome and slows down my computer! Up until now, I have loved using Firefox, if this is the way they are going to operate, I will use some other program.

I have do not have any mobile devices. But I like the Marketplace and the games. It states if I get to FF 48 it is history. I have FF 46.0.1. After upgrading it from 45, it all stopped working.

Now I would like to install Marketplace since I do not have auto updates. Can anyone tell me the easiest way.

I had selected "Don't open tabs until selected" but all of a sudden they are all opening on startup. The "Don't open tabs until selected" option is not there anymore when I go to Options. What can I do? This is urgent because I have multiple tabs open and they're all going strong at the same time and some of them are YouTube videos!

Frequently when I re-start Firefox (it seems to crash about once a day), the firefox exe process hangs with NO I/O. Firerfox does not even get to the point of asking me if I really want to start in safe mode. I tried getting a dump via the Task Manager, but taskmgr tells me "permission denied". Attached is a screen capture of the latest occurrence. This is the latest FF 46.0.1 on Windows 7 Professional 32-bit.

When I download files, I then want to open them. If I click on the Downloads arrow and see my file, I click on the file and want to open the folder where it is. If I do this, my default file manager does not open. I get one named Files. I have searched and found several posts that tell how. None of them work for me.

I am running Fedora 21 64 bit mode.

How can I change the name of the program that opens the folder?

How can I add an entry into Firefoxes Applications tab?

Thank you.

blah blah blah


Also are we shooting ourselves in the foot, giving a warning and effectively blocking our own troubleshooter app.

P.S. And is there a bug filed for warnings about outdated Flash on Linux. I have not checked

I do not know why they will no longer load. I go to a machine that has version 28.0 on it and they load just fine. So it has me confused as to how to get it to work again in this version.

Thanks Jay

Hello

I have spent 3 days trouble shooting this and can't resolve it. Firefox won't load pages, just get a grey spinning circle forever. No other message. I close firefox and restart, it won't start as it is still running in background. Task manager will not close it. I have to reboot the PC. I have tried deleting profiles, which helps for a few minutes then it locks again. I tried re-installing firefox and again it works for a few minutes then nothing. I have completely deleted all 'appdata' and still no luck. New profile doesn't help. I checked all security settings, firewall, etc. and nothing helped. I tried safe mode and the problem still exists. I have used firefox for years and now may have to walk away. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
