When I was trying to contact you it happened again. I get half way thru something and Firefox closes and I have to star over again. I don't know what I am doing wrong because I have been with Firefox for years and never had a problem Thanks, John Nelligan

Hello There,

I have been trying to figure out why videos that are embedded on certain sites do not show up on Firefox however they show up in Chrome?

I've gone through everything listed here:

and

A few key notes, even when in safe mode, the video problem still persists. But only on specific websites (squarespace sites). I can see videos through websites like Zoom, Shaw Bluewave, youtube, etc etc. But for some reason on this one site I can't get videos to display to play. Yet when I go to Chrome it's there and fine. So it's an issue with Firefox. I'm not sure how to fix it at this point.

I've unchecked Use recommended performance settings. I've switched the default theme I've disabled extensions (which fixed another issue of not displaying images) I've refreshed Firefox I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox I've checked all my graphics drives (they're all there and working)

At this point I'm not sure what to do. Can you please let me know if you have any recommendations?

Cheers Chantal

I made the mistake of having Firefox keep NO history at all. When it restarted, it went to the Yahoo Search Page immediately, and I can not get to the Firefox Home Page to change the setting.

How can I get back to the Mozilla Firefox Home Page, so I can change the "Privacy" setting back to normal?

About an hour ago I did myself a huge disfavor and accidentally reset firefox, losing all my extensions, open tabs, and web history. However, I found my "old firefox data" and copied the information I needed onto my new profile (using the guide found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Recovering%20important%20data%20from%20an%20old%20profile#w_copying-files-between-profile-folders). But now I don't know how to "save" my profile. Restarting firefox seems to do nothing, and I'm too scared to do anything else (lest I mess up AGAIN). Can anyone help me with this? Am I doing it incorrectly?


EDIT: fixed the problem! If anyone is dumb like me and had the same issue, what I did was create an entirely new profile and copy all the files from the old profile into the new, and then restart firefox. Apparently I was just copying the file onto the same default profile, so it would just revert back after I closed the window. ._.

I love (loved) FireFox! So much that I installed FF Mobile on my Android smart phone, I then added the device to my Sync and turned it on. Now FF on my PC is pounded with pop-up ads. Each time I follow a link the new page starts an annoying ad with sound. When I try to close or stop the ad with the X icon attached to it, it opens a new full page ad, with sound, in a new tab and most often forces focus to that new tab. I've tried disabling add-ons by starting FF in safe mode - no help. Now the last time I opened FF it opened to four new ad windows. I HATE THIS. I'm trying to get work done. What can I do? Jeff

Maybe I missed something, but in Chrome, when you have done CTRL+F and then F3 in a tab to search all occurrences of a string, you can still press F3 in another tab to look for the same string in this other tab, without having to do CTRL+F again.

That's very convenient, but apparently, it doesn't work in FF.

Thanks in advance
