Been using Firefox for years and have never had this problem before. Recently upgraded to V 20.0.1 and since then Cut/Copy/Paste will not work. Have tried Resetting and have even tried a complete uninstall and reinstall neither has worked. Unfortunately I need to use these features on a daily basis and if I can't get this fixed I'm going to have to move on to anther browser.

Hi here!! I review a lot of mozilla docs (out dated or without complete info), forums, googling ... about how to share firefox/thunderbird/ligthing data between platforms on dual/multiple boot system. Every user in same trouble are repeating (copy/paste) in the solution to share the SAME FULL PROFILE on all platforms. I review profile data and folders and I can see files and config data that are platform dependent; then I think that share FULL PROFILE between is not the best approach, for example Linux and Windows will produce several problems (and a lot of problems with the add-ons) In these same mozilla docs recommends to share only data and maintain custom profile for each platform, but not more info how to do it. Please can some kind advanced :) provide some info about the correct approach. Or a better tech info about how is possible the recommendation of sharing same profile between platforms without problems. Because with the current doc info, there is no way to get a clear answer (Almost I can't :~). Thx guys!

This has been going on for quite some time now. The earliest two crashes in the report were fixed by uninstalling and reinstalling firefox, but the more recent crashes in the list are typical of the kinds of crashes I have been getting for a long time. I've tried looking for help on these forums but since problems need a specific diagnosis I had to make my own thread. Anyways, here are the crash reports. Thank you for your help.

Updated to Firefox 20.0, now whenever i go into private browsing mode, it switches back to default firefox theme, i have a custom persona installed for firefox, which works in normal mode (and used to work in earlier versions in private browsing as well), but in FF20.0, private browsing just loads up with default ff theme, although i still can see it enabled in Add-ons tab, but it just does'nt shows up in private browsing window.. :(

After reading the file http://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/services/healthreport/README.rst I created in about:config a new Boolean “datareporting.healthreport.service.enabled” (false) and then manually deleted other “datareporting” entries from prefs.js. Most of the entries haven’t reapeared. 2 have: user_pref("datareporting.healthreport.nextDataSubmissionTime", "1365184210363"); user_pref("datareporting.policy.firstRunTime", "1365097810363");


If you can think of a better way please let me know.

Plugin check (incorrectly) says my acrobat plugin is out of date and takes me to a reader install

Windows XP FF 20.0

I have Adobe Acrobat X 10.1.6. and the plugin checker says its out of date.

I don't think it is, it's just not Abobe Reader.

I don't want to have both Acrobat and Reader. When I do, then there's two different plug-ins in FF, but they both have the same names, but they seem independent and it just seems messy. It looks as if the same plugin is on there twice, one updated and one not updated, but it doesn't seem possible to remove either one. Which is actually good, b/c one is for Acrobat and one is for Reader, which I didn't realize until I started looking into all this mess. Also, there's no point in me having Reader if I have Acrobat.

It's weird that the plugin checker says the Acrobat plugin is out of date and directs me to the Reader 11 download to update it, eventhough I already have Reader 11 (thanks to the plugin checker). In other words, the one that is updated is Reader, but the one that is supposedly out of date just directs me to a DL that I already have installed. Sorry if its confusing.

Now I downloaded it, and have since uninstalled it, but it seems well-known that there can be issues with dl'ing Reader when Acrobat is already uninstalled (or something), as well as when uninstalling one or the other, so now I am nervous, because I didn't take any precautionary measures when dl'ing or uninstalling Reader.

I almost feel like I should uninstall everything (if possible) and just start fresh.

Anyway, point is, the plugin checker is wrong, right?

I'm running FF 20.2 on Mac OS X 10.8.3. I recently found that item in drop-down menu cannot be selected by clicking, although it can be selected by hitting "enter" on keyboard. I have no add-ons installed so that shouldn't be the problem. Like go to http://www.newegg.com/ and click search menu, I can't select any options. Thanks for your help in advance.

Ok now i realize that the update has private browsing open in a new window, however there is a problem with it. It leaves the original window open so i close it because i only want the private browsing open when i private browse (this is why this idea of private browsing opening a new window is stupid, who ever thought it was a good idea should be fired; i mean why would i want a private session AND and non-private session open at the same time?) but anyways by closing the non-private session this cause firefox to close improperly and CRASH. every time i close my private window and come back later to open a new session (non-private default session) i get the "oops this is embarrassing" crash page. literally every time i use private browsing and come back later for a new session i get the crash. what a joke. again why did you change it there is no need for a separate window to open, there is no convince to it as hitting Ctrl-Shift-P to go back and forth between private and non-private is not an issues for any of your users, but now this new stupid system is guess what? an issue for your users, good job guys.

I am desperate to remove Delta Search from my new tab page. What do I do after I open about:config? I have done at least a dozen resets, have removed DS via add/remove, am running a virus scan at present...this is TERRIBLE, and there HAS to be a way to get rid of it. When I do a reset, the new tab page is what I WANT...my previously saved pages. However, when I CLOSE FF and reopen, the new page is, once again, Delta. Can you hear me SCREAM? Can you see my TEARS? I am really fed up. Thanks for getting back to me with a solution that WORKS. jo

Firefox 20.0 has added an infuriating feature that causes notification windows to pop up alerting me to whatever it feels like whenever it feels like. This telemarketing-style interruption is absolutely pointless and 100% in my way, and there HAS to be a way to disable it. Please, someone help! I don't want to have to drop Firefox—I've dealt with all kinds of ridiculous changes over the years—but I can't live with these interruptions.

I'm using Mac OS X 10.8.2.

Also, if anyone knows how to turn off that animated downloading arrow, that would be great, too.

I have firefox 20.0.1

This iminent thing must have ridden in on some download but it is all over the browser trying to put up spammy stuff in facebook, gmail, pinterest. I t may be partially blocked by some other add-ons like adblock-plu or better privacy, but it is there creating spurious toolbars on all my social sites and with little popout side windows.

I ran Malwarebytes and it found nothing.

I tried to follow these instructions from http://botcrawl.com/how-to-remove-the-search-iminent-search-the-web-hijacker-virus/#Firefox to remove it: Step 1: Open Firefox, and navigate to Tools -> Add-ons (Ctrl+Shift+A). Step 2: Select Extensions and find the particular Search Iminent Search The Web Toolbar extension, and click disable and remove.

BUT the "remove" button was absent.

I tried to follow these instructions to remove Iminent cookie: How to block the Iminent.com cookie 1.From the Tools menu, select Options 2.In the upper section of the Options window, click Privacy 3.In the Cookies tab, click Exceptions 4. In the new Exceptions – Cookies window, enter Iminent.com in the Address of Website field and click Disable.

BUT there was no "cookie tab."

I am on a MAC. I had my LIBRARY window open because I use it daily, mostly for bookmarks.

I wanted to delete some specific history links in the large window (with columns like Name and Location, Visit Date etc). I did not notice that the highlighted place was in the left toolbar under History so I accidentally deleted HISTORY--- Today, Yesterday and ALL of April. This is a business computer and this is a BIG problem. I tried several times under Edit to hit UNDO but it did nothing.

Why would Firefox not have some warning box to tell you you are about to delete a large amount of info? And why is it not reversible?

Also I am on my computer EVERY day for hours and the most recent bookmark backup point was today AFTER the large deletion of info mentioned above. And then the next previous one was April 23. So 2 more questions-- 1--why has it not auto backed up in almost 10 days? I don't do any manual backups. 2--does this restore point also restore history?

I don't know but i am uncertain of the tagging in Firefox. Have the Firefox team changed the tagging in later revisions of Firefox?

Back in FF 4 i think i made som tags on a certain adress (in this case www.tranceadict.com) which in turn created a virtual folder called Tranceaddict.


When looking in the tags of the bookmarks in that folder i don't see any tags applied at all. So i wonder how i could create such a virtual folder before but not now?

Thanks!

I have just got a new laptop running Windows 8, I do not use the start screen, I have downloaded Start Windows 8 and only use the desktop. I have downloaded Firefox and I am currently using vesion 20.0.1

I added MyWot and Adblock Plus and Downloader Helper.

Initially I was having a problem with the display of Cnet and the odd other site. I figured this was likely to be an issue with Adblock Plus, I disabled it on that site and it was fine. I then started losing the email functions in Yahoo mail, 'move', 'forward' etc. that run along the top of the inbox, and the drop down menu to log out woudn't show. I've since been getting problems with the display of other websites such as booking.com and now the Facebook log in page. By displaying incorrectly, I mean things appearing in line and in Times New Roman.

I have restarted with add ons disabled that didn't fix it, so I reset Firefox. This had the sites working. I reinstalled MyWot, restaretd, stillworked. Reinstalled Downloader Helper, restarted, still worked. I did not reinstall Adblock. I was using the Transport for London wesbite which was fine until I logged out and then that page appeared in Times New Roman too. The Facebook log in page is also broken again. Does anyone have any suggestions? I know my way around a computer to an extent but I'm not that techy. I've done the auto add information below, I don't know what most of it means (Avast plug in has been disabled through all this).

I have not been having these problems on my old XP laptop that I've still been using.
