A good percentage of my Chrome bookmarks did not import and the ones that did are all over the place. It would take me an insane amount of time to individually move them so they would be grouped in the same format as on Chrome. Is there any way to fix the import problem so they all import AND IS THERE ANY WAY TO IMPORT THE CHROME BOOKMARKS TO FIREFOX SO THEY SHOW UP AND ARE GROUPED IN THE EXACT SAME WAY AS THEY APPEAR ON CHROME?

Should I get the same performance benefit from Firefox's DXVA implementation as a standalone player? It seems that no matter whether or not I have hardware acceleration enabled, watching an .mp4 video in Firefox uses the same amount of CPU (around 15%). If I save the video and watch it in a standalone player, I have almost 0% CPU used.

Thanks.

Three months ago I began using sync but it was not until today that I noticed that many of my older bookmarks in my bookmarks menu had disappeared along with the folders I had created to categorize them. Also my browsing history has been significantly shortened.

Why is this happening and how do I stop it?

Before syncing I had a vast bookmark array now all I seem to have are bookmarks that only go back about a year.

I tried to restore but the archive only goes back a month. Is there a way to find older restore backups?

Thanks

I've just purchased my new Razer Deathadder Chroma which has two thumb buttons. I wanted a mouse with thumb buttons so that I could bind it as my "Push to talk" on Teamspeak 3. So now I face a problem of not being able to talk on Teamspeak without going back a page on Firefox. I would be grateful if someone could inform me of a fix :)

Note: I'm unable to figure out how to do it through Razer synapse.

Thanks for your time!

Every time my computer "wakes up", I get a Firefox Sync error

Hi.

I keep Firefox (v. 38.0.5 with Windows 8.1 Pro) always open. When I wake up my computer from sleep, I get the Firefox Sync error "failed to connect to the server".

If I force it to sync, it doesn't find any error, so I believe Firefox is trying to sync before my internet connection gets back. That would not be a problem if this error message bar disappeared automatically - but no, I have to click the tiny X button to close it.

Is there any way to (any of the below would be fine): - disable this message - set it to only show up after a few tries - set it to only check after 1 minute after my computer wakes up

I put my computer to sleep several times per day, so this is becoming annoying.

Thanks!

I see others noting this problem beginning in March 2015, but no solutions.

Just updated to 39.0, still the problem.

No word wrap within a text posting box on a website, instead the sentence just continues scrolling horizontally.

Apparently Firefox began doing this with 36.0.1.

Was hoping it would be fixed in the newest version, but no.


A search found this post with an illustration of the problem, in case anything is unclear:

http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/help-desk-site-news-site-problems/676425-word-wrap-text-entry-boxes-not.html

How could this not have been fixed between March and July?

How do I get word wrap within a text box?

Thanks.

i have never been asked to select a profile - I couldnt find my history and hit "back up" to "may 27" which I thought was a couple days ago, but looks like it was 2013. prior to doing this the only history that was showing was 6 months old or older. not sure what happened - if the "default" profile was an older version and not the current profile I was operating under or if there was some other glitch. is there anyway to get the bookmarks and data from my more recent history back?

Is there a way to tell Firefox (on Win 7 in my case) not to play audio automatically? Some sites like <http://www.gouldings.com/> start playing music as soon as they display. I'd like that to be an opt-in rather than an opt-out feature.

Certain websites and links are getting routed to the Yahoo error handler site, even when I search with Google. Seems to happen with only some sites, but the same ones repeatedly. It is happening with .org, .com and .gov sites. I know the sites aren't down; sometimes if I catch it fast enough I can stop loading the page and it will hold...perhaps a bug? I am a real novice at computers, so simple, non-technical language would help me best. Mac OS X 10.6.8 I am using the most recent version of Firefox. Hope I have provided enough information. Thanks

Earlier I have logged into Netbank - both with and without Java. No I can only log in, with Java.

That mean I cannot transfear money to my "Lottery-account", any longer. --- I have tried to set Firefox back to the original (meaning: removed all additions). That did not help.

I DO HOPE that this can be solved .. as soon as possible - prefearably to day .. if possible. Greetings Aage.

Recently when trying to watch facebook videos I've encountered this issue where I'm watching the video and 1 of 3 things happens. 1. The video suddenly stops but the audio continues and this continues regardless if I move forward or backwards in the video. This sometimes continues to happen if I refresh the video or restart firefox.

2. Im watching the video and suddenly audio from a further part in the video plays over the current audio, so not only does the audio not match the video, but its audio from further in the video.

3. Sometimes I click another part of the video and the image freezes but the audio continues . Just like issue 1.

This didn't happen before. I recently had a virus, plus a windows update that really slowed the computer down so I removed the virus and system restored to remove the updates. These issues continued happening and after a clean install of mozilla it sill does this.
