I like the autofill feature for the Awesomebar, however a lot of the addresses that it autofills are addresses that I don't really use anymore, so I was wondering:

Is there is a way to remove entries from Location bar autofill or just reset them?

Note: I'm talking about removing-changing the address that Autofill will populate the location bar with, not removing entries from the suggestions list that pops up under the Location bar

Strange BT Yahoo Mail problem. Mail displays erroneous numbers/letters. Headings switch around in left column.

When I open Bt Yahoo Mail the column on the left instead of having "Inbox" at the top of the column it will have "Drafts" when I hold my mouse over the "Drafts" it switches to "Inbox". The numbers of mail in these boxes changes in this way too. For example if it displays "Trash (6)" I hold my mouse over and the number will change to (3).

When I open mail parts of it can be switched around making it all a bit of a jumble. When I wobble my mouse over the text it reverts to how it should be.

When forwarding or replying to email numbers can get changed. For example today I was sending an email to ask about an order of printer inks. I wrote : 6 PI-PGI-9PBK and when I checked in my "Sent" folder the number had changed to : 3 PI-PGI-9PBK.........that is until I hold my mouse over and it changes back to 6! Obviously I worry that the correct number has not gone! I've tested for virus and malware and have reinstalled Firefox and Java and am now at a loss. This started from my previous version of Firefox into this new one. If I switch back to Bt Yahoo Classic Mail the problem goes away. It does not happen in Chrome or IExplorer but I want to use Firefox! Any ideas??

I'm considering comeback to Firefox. As a long time chrome user, I've gotten used to use address bar as search bar However, In firefox this cannot be always successful, if I type in 15+15, My intention is to search this in google and therefore get the calculation result. But instead Firefox add www. prefix in the front, "fix" my result.

Also, 15/3 was interpreted as 0.0.0.15, this doesn't even make sense, what kind of ppl type their IP this way? Not me at least.

I've tried to disable autofix in the about:config, no luck.

Hello,

Just updated to FireFox 20.0. Ctrl+F no longer shows the total found. This feature otherwise works. I did do a Reset to see if that will help. Now am putting Addons back. Worked fine in prior version (19). Use browser for research so numer is important.

So far I like the new version. Should I go back to 19? How? Using current version of Java and Flash player. Windows 8. Let me know how I can help.

Thanks for your time.

I tried visiting the same pages with Internet Explorer, and they were OK. I looked a the page style, nothing wrong here. Also, JavaScript is enabled, and I don't have any applications of any kind that could block it, or at least I think so. (I installed firefox yesterday on my new computer, and only added personnas and the facebook webcam application. and I'd be surprised if I learnt that it was my wacom tablet...) I don't know if the problem comes from the connection, since I'm connected to a "limited" public internet access. but since IE is OK and the problem only started yesterday's night, then I don't see why it would be it... I updated Java to be sure, it seems to be working OK, since my shimejis are happily climbing my screen... The problem seemed to have solved itself for fanfiction.net, but youtube keeps looking strange... facebook too. I tried refreshing the pages at least 10 times and nothing. The pages looks like if they didn't load the CSS codes or something of the kind. (well, they look exactly like on my phone, what can't load CSS pages I belive) I checked all that could be checked, and I don't see anything that could have provoked this. what can I do ?

Whenever I visit a page that contains even the smallest of Flash objects, Firefox stops responding briefly and then a dialogue pops up to say that Shockwave Flash has crashed. I have tried all of the fixes I have found on other questions: I have reset Firefox, run it in Safe Mode, disabled all extensions, reinstalled both Firefox and Flash, downgraded both Firefox and Flash and turned off Flash's "Protective Mode" etc. The problem only seems to have come about after I upgraded to Firefox 20 yesterday if that is of any help. Flash also crashes on IE and doesn't work properly on Chrome (YouTube does not play sound for example). I have run out of ideas and I was wondering if anyone has anything that I could try. Thanks in advance for any answers!

I'm trying to open the Profile Manager in order to create a 'developers' profile. I was originally following this blog's instructions using the Run command.

http://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2009/01/28/how-to-develop-a-firefox-extension/

The problem is that it's just opening up a new Firefox window, and nothing else. I then went to get more updated documentation, here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles?esab=a&as=aaq

And alas the same results. Here are the commands I have tried:


firefox -p firefox -P firefox -profilemanager firefox -ProfileManager

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -p "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -P "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -profilemanager "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -ProfileManager


They all return the same result, which is just opening a new Firefox window.
