I have just reinstalled my operating system and ALL of my bookmark's favicons are empty (small box with a dotted border). Not just in the bookmarks bar, but in all my bookmarks folders. This is happening on both Firefox and Firefox Dev Ed. Not in other browsers. I've tried the Restore Empty Favicon extension; no joy.

Any answers?

Thanks.

When I go to "Tools" / "Plug-Ins" and click on "Check To see If Plugins Are Up To Date" it goes to Mozilla Check Your Plugin Page, but fails to show plugins or checked plugins update status. I am using OS X 10.10.2 / Firefox 35.0.1 / February-7-2015

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_campaign=plugincheck-update

Tried, re-installing over original, clearing cookies, clearing cache and starting in Safe Mode to no avail. Mozilla has gone of track once again. Situations like this are among the causes for Firefox rapidly losing Browser share. Another ridiculous oversight and there's never any support for when things do go awry. No professional concern, with a competent cause and cure. none.

Ironically the "check to see if your plugins are up to date" web site loads the plugins and their update status in Safari and Chromium. But still does not show the plugins or their update status when loaded in Firefox 35.0.1 on OS X 10.10.2.

Need info and a fix, please... Thanks! Whitebuck

Still wondering why, you're losing users

I'm not sure what I can say except that I click on the Firefox icon in the dock to pull up my gmail account. It seems preferable to click on the mail icon in the dock instead. Does it really matter or not how I obtain my mail? As you can probably tell, moving info around is somewhat challenging for me and if my question is doable, that would be great. Thank you, Theresa

Unable to add OneTab to the Toolbar

Hi,

I'm asking this question again as I may not have explained the problem correctly in my earlier question related to the same topic.

I have installed OneTab to my Firefox and it doesn’t show up in the toolbars. It is showing as 'Enabled' in the Extensions list and in 'Additional Tools and Features' it shows without an icon but with the title that says ‘Send tabs to ‘OneTab’. On hovering, this area seems to be active. However, unlike other icons there, I am unable to drag and drop this to the toolbar.

I have already tried the following:

1. Disabled all other extensions but Onetab and restarted Firefox. 2. Removed all other extensions but OneTab and and restarted Firefox. 3. Removed all extensions including OneTab and re-installed just OneTab after restarting Firefox. 4. I removed Firfox and re-installed it and re-installed just OneTab.

None of these steps helped me. Please advice on how to solve this.

Thanks

I am running Firefox 36.0.1 on an iMac with Yosemite 10.10.2. Firefox is working fine except that it hangs and forces me to Force Quit the application every time I try to choose Add-ons from the Tools menu. I have never had this problem before. This problem has happened for three straight days with my iMac being restarted several times. The same problem happens when trying to access Add-ons from the Open menu icon. Does anyone have a solution? Thanks!

We are trying to use a Zebra GC420d printer to print name labels through a checkin online database. However as part of the config instructions provided to set up the printer setting, I must check the box 'print selection only' in the print dialogue box in Firefox. However this check box cannot be clicked because it is 'greyed' out. What do I need to change so I can check this box? Thanks, Shannon

TL;DR: I'm getting recursive update notifications that never update. Restart, update, restart, update, restart, update...
