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!

Ok. So I have been reading and reading on here. There is a website that autocompeltes in my awesome bar. It will NOT GO AWAY no matter how many times I clear ALL history, delete ALL cookies, etc. There is no bookmark saved with said website. (www.axlscloset.com).

The moment I type the letter "a" in my awesome bat, FF suggests www.axlscloset.com. I have also tried the SHIFT + DELETE on my mac. It is absolutely driving me crazy. What can I do short of resetting FF?

To update, this is happening with all letters of the keyboard. For example, "w" yield www.whitehouse.gov even though I have not visited it in months. "C" yield cbsnews.com.

Again, please note no bookmarks or the like are saved. All history and cookies have been cleared.

Thanks in advance.

I just got a newer Mac Pro and loaded OS 10.8. Then I used the Migration Assistant to transfer all of my files, programs, and settings to the new machine (old machine was running OS 10.6.8). When I try to open Firefox, I get a Profile Missing dialog box. It says: Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.

Does anyone know why this is happening?? If so, how does one go about fixing it?? If anyone has any ideas, your input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I've used Firefox for years and have the most recently updated version, but the website I created and maintain is suddenly wonky on Firefox--text out of alignment, fonts look weird, pictures overlap text. I've tried every fix you suggest--every one! The website looks fine on Safari. What's going on, and how can I fix it?

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'm having problems with pop up windows in Ebay, they are not coming up, even after I add ebay.com.au to my allowable pop ups, in the Firefox Preferences Menu under the "Content" tab!

I want to add a $1 handling charge to my ebay item and the window just goes grey with a spinning gray wheel but nothing happens, I've tried uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling but nothing works.

Pop ups work in Safari when using Ebay so it's a Firefox issue, can anybody help, could it be the new IOS Mountain Lion 10.8.2?? Any help would be appreciated as this is going to bug me..

I have Facebook as my first tab, pinned as an app tab, and Google as my homepage on the second tab. Whenever I start up Firefox, I can search Google and every other site, but the URL does not change in the Awesome Bar, just remains on 'Go to a Web Site', so it does not track my history, and does not allow me to go backward/forward through pages. All other tabs work just fine. Also the tab will not be closed sometimes, or Firefox will act like the tab doesn't exist when I scroll through them. Have tried some add-on disabling and I cant find the root of the problem.

Any help appreciated
