Whenever I upgrade to FF 26 on my pc laptop I am no longer able to open any web pages on my laptop in any browser. If I reset my system to a previous date I am good to go. Any ideas on what may be going on or how to troubleshoot it? I am not a technical person - btw

My connection to the internet still shows as connected, but I cannot open any web pages.

thanks,

Bill

I'm running Firefox on OS X Mavericks. I use Time Machine to back this computer. I know that Time Machine will automatically avoid backing up my web cache. But which of the files in my profile directory can I not back up? I'm particularly interested in webappstore.sqlite, cookies.sqlite, and healthreport.sqlite since these are on the large end and seem to change frequently.

I already have excluded bookmarkbackups and places.sqlite. I have the browser set to automatically export my bookmarks so if I need to restore my machine I'll get back my bookmarks but not my browsing history, which seems reasonable.

This used to work on my Mac using Firefox and Mac Mail but now it doesn't. Opening regular links are unaffected. I can still click and open easily. This only happens when I try to use the feature, to open links behind mail. When I right click nothing happens. Nothing is opened.

I am a web developer,

Recently (this week and last) my firefox has been caching very old resources. If i update a pages html, i can see that change on a refresh, but and css or js changes i make do not reflect. Every time i load a site i have to do a [shift + refresh]. Even if i clear my cache in the preferences it will not solve the problem.

The only way i can make firefox load the new page resources is via a app called "clean my mac 2" where i have to do a application reset.

I do this 5 or 6 times a day and the rest of the time i still have to [shift + refresh] to get the updated content.

I successfully imported my bookmarks from my old to new Macbook. But now there are two copies of everything, listed one after the other. I tried to delete one set, but only deleted the ones organized into folders. There are still doubles of a lot of bookmarks. Now when I bookmark new pages on the new computer, it adds them to the end of one list of bookmarks but not the other and it's the list that doesn't have the folders from the old computer. How can I delete one set of bookmarks, but keep the set that it's adding on to and keep my folders?

I would like to contribute to the dictionary that ships with FF. It looks like it's listed as an add-on, but since it installs by default (and unless that bug has been fixed, can't be changed) I'm not clear if that's the same dictionary or an alternative US English dictionary. Who would I talk to about helping to maintain the default dictionary?
