I just updated Firefox to version 15.0 on the Mac. Suddenly, all of my bookmark folders that are supposed to be in my Bookmarks Toolbar are no longer there, and the Toolbar won't let me put them back there. This is substantially non-optimal. I must say, I'm becoming less and less of a fan of Firefox with every passing update, which saddens me.

I've many bookmarks. And, it takes me a long time to scroll down the long list. How can I customize my bookmark list so I segregate them into categories? Sort of a personal bookmark's 1,2,3 etc. And, be able to view those bookmark categories in the menu bar, like I view the current bookmarks link. Is something like that possible? Thank you.

Firefox (15) inserts a "Firefox HTML document" in Windows Explorer File > New menu. It breaks my works patterns (Alt FWF stops working). Need to disable.

I often use the shortcut Alt FWF to create new directories on Windows.

When FF 15 is set as default it alters the File New menu from Windows Explorer.

It inserts a "Firefox HTML document" item.

This item seems to sabotage the above key combination. It intercepts the last F.

In addition I object to the naming which is plain wrong, for me.

I have deleted the registry key that inserts this thing. Unfortunately it re-appears.

I want to stop this behaviour.

How do I kill this. (Other than by making another browser the default.)

I am running Firefox 15.0.1 on Windows 7 64-bit I have Java plugin version SE7 U7, which I reinstalled and confirmed is current. However, when the Java plugin (Java(TM) Platform SE 7 U7 10.7.2.11) is disabled, then I get message when checking my plugins, "For your safety, Firefox has disabled your outdated version of Java. Please upgrade to the latest version". When I re-enable this plugin, the error message is not present. Thus it is misleading as the correct version is installed but disabled.

I have FF 15.0.1 freshly installed on a new Win7-PC (home premium 64bit).

I have tried to install Adobe Flash from their site as well as through the automatically proposed add-on. Both claim it was "installed successfully". But when I check the addon-list, it's not there. Restarting firefox doesn't work.

I have some other plugins (pdf-reader) and extensions (ghostery, adblock) installed and they are working fine.

FF keeps me asking to install the plugin. I install it, and it's not there - asking me to install it. And so on. Could keep me busy for hours ;-(

Please help! Thanks :)

I have my bookmarks set as a fixed sidebar. In versions 2.0 and 3.0, when I open the tabs they would start to the right of the bookmarks sidebar. Now with v15.0 I see that it forces the bookmark sidebar down, and places a tab right above it. I've tried the about:config settings on Tabs and bookmarks with no luck. All I want is to have the behavior just like it was in 2.0. That is, the bookmark sidemark is fixed and the tabs bar beginning at the right of it. I can see where the developers thought it would make sense to extend the tab bar all the way from the extreme left of the browser page to the extreme right. But I like it confined in a define quadrant. Thanks.

Hey, Recently updated to Firefox 15, now all webpages take at least 1 minute to load. However, there is no internet issue, it's really strange. For example, I'll open four different websites, they'll all say 'Connecting to x' or 'Waiting for x' and just stay there for a minute. After a while, they'll all load as usual at the same time. It's like Firefox has loaded the pages but just isn't displaying them, while this was happening once, I tried resetting the router to see if there was an error there and it still loaded the page after 1 minute, while there was no internet connection available.

I've tried - disabling firewall, anti virus, reinstalling Firefox, restarting router and disabling plugins. Other internet browsers work with no problem.

Thanks

I've tried clearing all my history, cookies, and everything else on Firefox, but it doesn't fix the problem.

Whenever I try to comment on a post in facebook it says "Unable to post comment." And it won't let me like any posts either.

Google Chrome works perfectly with Facebook. I don't want to quit using Firefox, but unless I get a solution soon that may be what I have to do.
