When you import bookmarks from Firefox or another browser into Firefox in a separate computer the bookmarks get imported fine, however their icons get disappeared. You have to click on every single bookmark in order to load its corresponding icon!

Note: The Google Chrome does not have this issue. The bookmark and their icons get imported to Chrome without further clicking on the imported bookmarks.

major issues with Forefox sync

Everytime I wish to set up a Sync it goes to hell. I setup a Firefox Sync account, I select Pair a Device and I select Set up Firefox Sync on the other device. I click on I have an account and the link is dead. I check to find out if I am logged in or not. Search for Firefox sync page on google. (What is wrong with a bloody link FF/Mozilla??) All connected, try again = The same bloody result I select Pair a Device on the other (by now I just do this for kicks) and guess what, Create a New Account or I Have an Account. As I already have an account, I select I Have an Account... Dead link, Right click and I don't even get the expected menu of options on what to do with the webpage.

Have broken the camels back and would like an actual SOLUTION instead of Firefox's (probably correct if bug free and behaving) in my experience completely incorrect and unhelpful standard issue operating instructions.

any assistance (ASAP as I might be forced tp move to another more reliable browser) would be most gratefully recieved.

Firefox consistently locks up for minutes at a time when Huffington Post updates. This has been going on for at least 18 months and it does not appear there is a serious effort to address the problem. I have read though all the forum questions and replies and I do not see a serious effort on the part of Firefox to address this. It is causing significant enough problems to make using Firefox an issue. What is the problem and will be be fixed at some point?

Mozilla crashed about 15 mins into a timed online assessment for my university course which i cannot repeat. On attempting to get info on the crash, so that my university could see that i wasn't lying about the time of the crash and the website i was on, the time stamp changed to when i clicked on the link for more detailed info.

I was wondering if there was anywhere i could get the original time stamp as the time seems to have changed on my about:crashes page as well.

Urgent help would be most appreciated.

Hi! I was trying to make an online purchase & the yellow PayPal selection button wasn't visible. I called the company to make sure they accepted PayPal, (they do), & they opened their browser & made a test purchase so they could tell me where the PayPal button was. On their browser the PayPal button was there...on mine it wasn't. I closed out Firefox & restarted it, but the PayPal option button never appeared. I decided to try to make the purchase using IE & the PayPal button was right where the company told me it would be!!! Do I have to change one of my settings somehow?? I avoid IE like the plague...I even deleted the Desktop shortcut for it on my laptop...I had to do a search so I could use it to test this issue. I really don't want to have to use IE for anything!!! Help will be greatly appreciated!! Thanks very much  :) Nuts4Mutts

How do I make adjustments in PASSWORD MGR on sites that require that I update my password frequently?

Some websites (banks, pharmacies, etc) require periodic and frequent updates of passwords for security reasons. If a password is stored in Password Manager and such an occasion arises, how is this handled? For example, when this password is changed on the bank from simonsays1 to simonsays2 does this affect the password for ALL accounts using the simonsays1 or will that change the account only for the bank while leaving all other accounts the same at simonsays1 ? As you can imagine, this would make Password Manager not as convenient as it might seem. Or, is it possible to include the passwords that never change in Password Manager and exclude those-like the one in this example-that will change frequently? Thank you.
