When I type the first "w" of a web address in the location bar, a web address autopopulates that is not in the pull down list, browsing history or bookmarks. The same address populates every time and only with one "w" of the first "www" of the address. I have tried clearing all history and cookies, resetting Firefox and reinstalling but the problem persists. The only way I have found to stop it is to set the privacy preferences for location bar suggestions to suggest Nothing, but that eliminates a feature I find useful. The only thing I haven't tried is deleting my Firefox profile. I am using a Mac running OS 10.8.4.

I backed up my MacBook Pro 11 OS X Lion system with Time Machine and then got a new MacBook Pro 13 OS X Mountain Lion system. I can't use Time Machine to restore my system. I was able to drag and drop my files, but I neglected to create an HTML backup of my Firefox bookmarks. Are the automatic .json backups that Firefox made accessible to me on my Time Machine external drive? Can I find one of those backups and restore it to my new laptop? I haven't made any new bookmarks, so overwriting wouldn't be a problem.

The scroll bars look and operate exactly the same as they did in Fx 22.

Is there a setting I need to turn on?

Or maybe I am confused: I am expecting "new style" scroll bars to behave like those in Safari and in other Mac native application (bouncing, and disappearing when not in use).

When I use in my css: body:after { content: "mobile"; display: none; } And check this with javascript with the command: var size = window.getComputedStyle(document.body, ':after').getPropertyValue('content');

I get in firefox (v 23.0.1 mac) returned the string ""mobile"" with doubled quotes as return and therefore the check if size =="mobile" returns false. In safari the value returned "mobile" without the doubles quotes. How come?

Locking as duplicate of /question/971280

I would like to know why FIREFOX doesn't act like a native mac app when it comes to the red-close button. Or maybe it does but I am not sure how to activate it.

Basically when pressing the red X it closes and loses all saved session information. Would be good to have it act like, say, Safari, where it saves the session information and just runs in the background instead of actually closing.

Can someone please help? It's super frustrating

I have an Apple computer, use both Safari and Firefox browsers. I use both Apple mail and Comcast for my email. Lately, when in Firefox, my email does not work properly. I get a message "your servers license has expired". While I can usually access my emails I cannot delete unwanted emails. This problem does not happen when I use Safari and Apple mail. Is this a Firefox issue or Comcast? Do you know what license expiration refers to?

I set up a TunnelBear account using my yahoo email address from my temporary location in Italy. Soon after setting up the account I got a message from Google saying, "Someone recently used your password to try to sign in to your Google Account ... This person was using an application such as an email client or mobile device." The message said the unauthorized access was from IP 173.193.19.90, which is linked to TunnelBear Inc. I did not give any information to TunnelBear about my Google account when I registered with them. The only thing I can think of is that the TunnelBear application somehow got that information from the Firefox application on my computer. Is that possible? Has anyone else seen strange/suspicious activity from TunnelBear?

Thanks.

I have done everything I can think of to get rid of this Bing search and finally came upon your https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/850126, by mha007. Even following these instructions to a T in Windows 7, the issue continues.

When windows first boots the Google logo is there, but if I open a new tab the Bing search engine comes up. I'm freaking out and will not use it because I suspect spyware, so I have my search engines set up to only allow "Google" and "Yahoo" at the top right of my screen. Still it continues and is driving me crazy in having to switch every time I bring up a new page. Plus, I'm petrified my kids will use this. Another site, Gorilla Price has been downloaded and will not come off and I don't know if this is a separate issue or if it's related.

When I open a tab this is the address that populates: lab.search.conduit.com/HP/SH/?layid=43&gid=771&ctid=CT3315039&searchsource=69&UM=2& until I click on the house at the top right corner.

Now I am researching under YouTube at www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8Fa7wXWKe0 and the program Ronnie Harris has on his screen is one I've recently downloaded, Freemake Video Converter, which is where this virus originated. It's a "free ware" application that apparently hijacks the system.
