After updating FF to latest (FF21->FF49.0.2) all pwds & usr names messed up. So when I go to any login page, there are various user names to chose from, but pwds come up. Hence, total hassle & no utility. As there were no other such Q&A, this might be an isolated issue. Should one update safer in steps like 21 to 28 to 43 to 49 or what is recommended to avoid this?

Tried Classic Theme Restorer, but it does not bring the good old efficiency of FF21 back.

Here is what is desired:

At the top of the browser: three bars

bar#1 at top: browser menu (file, edit, ..., help); addon icons; url/website input; search box.

bar#2 in mid: bookmark folders/icons

bar#3 under #2: tabs

Bottom of browser: addon bar (incl status)

Can anyone make this work for the new FFs?



(The new FFs feel like "quick-20/80-Google/M$SFT" "update-rape" "philosophy"...options are one thing, forcing them is another. The idea of quick iterations was not guinea-pigging the user, but to learn quickly, for a better result, which then become options, not dogma. Admittedly, easier said than done. Still love FF, but please get back to real good, not wacko juggernaut, for total love!)

Everytime I try to download a "large" file Firefox keeps asking me:

Firefox needs your consent to download large files. Please click ALLOW to continue your transfer.

If you cannot see the request, please click on the icon next to the address bar.


I didn't have this kind of troubles before until the new version, I'm so frustrated that I'm really thinking to switch to Chrome instead.

And in case someone wonders, there isn't a request icon at ALL.

I was on hotmail, then Microsoft stuck me with outlook.com. Using firefox, I can't see the bottoms of my contacts names, but in Internet Explorer it is ok. Online help groups tell me to open my firefox page, but I can't find that either. They told me to uninstall Babylon, but it is not installed.

Please help.

PC #1 (Acer) has high-speed wifi, PC #2 (HP) does not. The application is for PC #2 (XP), not PC #1(Win 7). Update on PC #2 failed. Recommended acction was to download latest version. All I can download is the stub. Download speed on the HP is too slow to initiate a setup. Is it possible to download the entire Firefox application on the high-speed PC but install it on the slow PC?

I currently use firefox 21 and love the way it looks, but I I tried downloading firefox 39 and using classic theme restorer to see if I could get 39 to look like 21. I couldn't get it to look the same so I deleted firefox 39, but now firefox 21 has this bar at the bottom. When I click the x nothing happens.

picture is firefox 21 with bar at bottom. I had firefox 39 in a separate folder and change nothing to firefox 21.

Google used to send me warnings 3 or 4 months back... suspicious activity on my google account. I seem to ave been hacked for a very long time, years, in fact. Nobody can tell me what to do. The hackers seem to operate in 'real time' and in some cases, from the same location (ex. a hotel) that I am in. Somebody told me this is called 'shadowing'. (I'm not 'stalked'.) Now google has stopped me logging in and say I MUST change my password. I don't want to, cos I'm sure this move is useless, and I'm also worried that the change WILL NOT open my email anyway. I'm afraid of that, cos it could be hackers who are impersonating google. I experienced heavy hacking event several years ago, the techie almost couldn't save my inbox; he couldn't believe it himself. (Massive instability and login problems. He finally managed to stabilize after about 90 mins.) The hackers are quite sophisticated. I often used to get a message from google when signing out, saying that 'other people are logged onto this site and closing down now could cause them to lose data.' Recently I get a very quick flashed message when shutting down; it seemed to come from google (chrome?) downloads and it shows a liitle man cartoon figure falling, and it says, 'He's dead, Jim', and hints that my google drive is out of space, or similar. It only lasts a second or less. Is that normal? I checked much on google troubleshooting, no use!

For some reason, starting about 10 days ago, I can no longer paste links into Facebook comment fields. I can paste text; but when I copy a link and try and paste it, nothing happens; it's as though I never copied the link.

I've followed the suggestions in this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1006323#answer-660703

1 - reloaded from the server 2 - cleared cookies 3 - disabled all extensions and restarted in safe mode

Nothing has helped.

I *can*, however, paste when I'm using Chrome, so it's almost certainly a Firefox issue (as compared to a Facebook problem).

Any suggestions/fixes will be most appreciated!

I have FF v21, which has the download box that is loved and easy to use. Especially when i want to pause and resume downloads. I want to update to the latest FF, but i don't like the newer download box. I was wondering what version has the box before it switches over and if the older download box has been bought back?

So many people miss that box and it was one of the best features from FF. If it hasn't been bought back, what is taking so long?

I really want to update to latest FF, but am not looking forward to the download box changing, if it still isn't back.

Could anyone tell me if the latest FF has the older loved download box or the newer one?

Thanks for any help
