Hey All,

I've tried many things to resolve this issue, but none of them seem to be working. For some time now I have not been able to see the homepage of wordpress.com with full information i.e. stats, notifications, etc. I'm running Firefox 15 on Mac OSX Lion with the following settings and add-ons. I've tried disabling the various privacy add-ons one-by-one to no avail. Please help!

I saw many questions like "Components.classes[xyz]" is undefined, but I have an issue with the Components.classes object itself being undefined. I have a small dummy html page where I'm trying to run a basic sample script from http://books.mozdev.org/chapters/ch08.html#77008 (slightly altered):

<script type="text/javascript"> function blah() { var c = Components; var clazzes = c.classes; // clazzes is still undefined after this line executes var myClass = clazzes["@mozilla.org/browser/bookmarks-service;1"]; // here it throws var bmks = myClass.getService(Components.interfaces.nsIBookmarksService); // call one of the object's methods: // flush the bookmarks to disk if they've been touched. bmks.Flush( ); } </script>

I've already tried running Firefox in safe mode, and it's a fresh installation of the application. Am I missing some sort of initialization?

I have an iMac where all my booksmarks are and I am trying to sync to my new Macbook Pro Retina that I recently purchased. I followed Firefox directions on how to sync my device. First I went to my laptop: tools > set up sync. Then I went to my iMac, went to the firefox homepage > sync > pair a device > entered the code from my macbook pro. Then nothing. The directions say that it will say "device connected" and will automatically start syncing, but I don't see anything. Finding the recovery key option does not work either. When I go to preferences > sync, I don't even have the option for managing my recovery key. Help?

I have a mid 2012 MBP with Retina display. When I try to install Firefox upgrades i Get the message that teh update will not be installed, are you running more than 1 copy of Firefox. This occurs no matter what I try even from a restart. Activity monitor only shows one copy of Firefox running

I reset Firefox to the default and that did not help, I started in safe mode and that did not help.

The address bar used to show a line between search / auto-complete results. Now the line is gone and it's very hard to see the grouping of description and URL and find what I'm looking for, they all blend together. I want the line back! I really wish FF wouldn't make these changes - make them available as an option, not forced.

I changed my settings so that the awesome bar only suggests my bookmarks. However, it still is suggesting history (and items that are not in my bookmarks). I've deleted my history multiple times, but websites that I have only visited once are being autocompleted when I type one letter into the awesome bar.

I love Firefox, but I have 2 distinctly different needs. I need 2 separate Firefox browsers with very different settings, consistent with very different uses:

1. This use of Firefox will be for visiting many different websites, a wide variety of interests.

2. I need this use of Firefox to be very limited and restricted, consistent with handling personal investments, banking, financial transactions. There will be very few websites, but with extremely secure, private, connections.

I set it to always start in private browsing on a Mac. For some sessions, I would like to start the browser where the history IS kept on the computer. When I try to go and turn off private browsing in the "Tools" menu, the "Stop Private Browsing" menu is grayed out (i.e. unable to click it).

Basically, I want a reverse to the original function (i.e. I want it to always be in private browsing EXCEPT for certain times instead of the original never in private browsing EXCEPT for certain times).
