For about a month, I've had an intermittent problem with FF dumping the list of cookie exceptions each time the browser closes. I originally had a very lengthy list of exceptions and noticed a few weeks ago that it was now completely blank.

After I discovered the problem, I checked to make sure I do NOT have "site preferences" checked on the options to clear FF's history on close. I also tried deleting the prefs.js file, thinking it might have become corrupt.

I had thought the problem had resolved itself -- although I was never able to recover my original list of exceptions, but for the last week or so, the exceptions did not change when I closed. However, after FF upgraded yesterday to 23.0.1, the exceptions list cleared itself again. Now, each time I close the browser, it dumps the list again.

Any suggestions? I have a lengthy list of sites I would rather not allow to use cookies and and I'm getting pretty frustrated at having to recreate it over and over.

Citrix access gateway website -- the application frame does not load properly

Goal - use remote desktop via citrix website; Did work in FF in July; now (Aug) it doesn't

Problem: Application frame with link to RDP is blank

I log into website OK - three frames should be present: 1) fileshare - I don't use this & it appears to load OK; 2) websites - I don't use this & it appears to load OK ; and 3) Applications - This frame is blank but it should load a collection of links including a link to remote desktop

Behavior: If I have just cleared the history then the application frame will "clock" (this is normal) but instead of showing the links a blank frame appears; If I have NOT just cleared the history, the application frame shows the "clock" but it is frozen; slightly different but still results in blank application frame.

I have tried: 1. clear history before logging in (change in "clocking" but still results in blank application frame 2. IPV6- disable by set to true; No impact on problem; toggle back to false 3. network DNS disable prefetch; disable by set to true  ; no impact on problem; toggle back to false 4. preference named plugins.load_appdir_plugins; change its value to true; no impact - set back to false

One significant change I have made "around" the time of the problem is I uninstalled norton that came preinstalled, installed adaware, and removed/ disabled the adaware browser toobar ;

I will appreciate any suggestions from the community.

How do I make it so that when I search with my address bar it ALWAYS uses Google, regardless of what search engine is selected in the search bar? It used to be like this, but a recent Firefox update altered it. Now, when I search with my address bar it uses the search engine selected in the search bar...if I wanted to do that, I would just use the search bar! Any suggestions?

every page on every open tab refreshes every 30 seconds and each time it is saved in my cache. If I want to go back to a previous page, I have to click back once for every 30 seconds I was on the current page. Very annoying!! It just started doing this recently and I don't know why. I did reset the about:config to "0", but that didn't help.

I lost all my bookmarks when my computer crashed. I thought they would have been on my backup drive, but they were not. Some people say export to a htlm file, then put in documents, then when you backup, they will be there. 'Then I have heard about backing them up to a json file. i tried that and it wouldn't open up from my desktop. So i don't know what to do. I cannot afford to lose them again. I am slowly building them back up, but had a lot of medical sites on there. What is the best way and safest way. I have windows 8. Thanks.

With the release of Firefox 23.0.1, different options were changed and I had to go back in to change them. One small change was disabling the start of videos on Youtube, Dailymotion, etc. The plugins.click_to_play was set to true, and changing it back to true today, videos are still automatically playing on their respective website. Is there any alternative or adjustment in the options that will do the same as plugins.click_to_play? Prefer this option to work, but if there is something else out there, I'll consider it.

A few days ago I logged into the Manage My ADs page on Ebay Classifieds and found it altered. I contacted Ebay Classifieds to find out if they changed the format and they said no. I had recently downloaded some Microsoft Updates so I thought that was the problem so I did a system restore to remove those updates. The page looked like it normally did so I thought one of those updates was the issue. I decided to install each update individually and check Ebay Classifieds to maybe narrow down which update was the problem. After installing all of the updates the page looked fine. I also noticed that an add-on that I had on Firefox "Ad Block" was gone. I tried to install Ad Block but Firefox wouldn't let me. I kept getting a message that it was corrupt. I found that Firefox had a newer version so I downloaded that and then downloaded Ad Block. And everything was fine; Ad Block was working and the Manage my Ads page of Ebay classifieds was back to normal.

Today I log into Ebay Classifieds to list an item or two and again find the Manage My Ads page altered again. Tried clearing my cache, cookies, reinstalling Java (something an Ebay Classified Rep told me to do) and nothing; the page is still altered.

None of the Microsoft updates are installed. I also logged into Ebay Classified via Internet Explorer and Google Chrome and the page is altered using them too.

Any ideas what might be causing the Manage My ADs page to be changed? I'm at a loss.

Thank you for your time.

My username and password for my university website: https://www.bb.reading.ac.uk/ stopped appearing automatically, and the password only appeared when I typed in my username. I couldn't bothered to type the username every time, so I deleted the website in the 'Saved Password...' section thinking I would be prompted to remember the password again. But it never came up and cannot seem to find a function that would allow me to remember a password for the website.
