When I go to erase cookies, none are showing up even though I have them enabled. This has just started happening since I reinstalled Firefox. I do not have privacy mode enabled. I was having a lot of trouble connecting to a particular site so I uninstalled Firefox then reinstalled it. Since then I am not able to see what cookies are on my computer. Also, I still have issues connecting to the site in question.

I'm not sure why but Firefox seems really laggy recently. I tried resetting it and it didn't help. I scanned for viruses and malware but found none. Firefox is up to date. I did have this SelectionLink thing installed without me knowing but I uninstalled it. It seems to just be the Firefox browser so it's my connection. Is anyone else having this problem?

Alright I have nothing happen when I put something in the google search on the start page. It just sits there. I the awesome bar it works. I have searched a long time to find the answer and have had no LUCK. I am using Zorin 7.1 in VMWare. I have cleared cooking, Cache, and reset FF 26 several times all with no success. I would like to fix this.

This is my first time with a question here is it emailed or how do I get an answer?

Often when I click a link within a web page, a message bar appears at the top of the page saying "Firefox has blocked this site from loading another page" or something similar. This happens frequently on banking or credit card sites. This is particularly annoying because it seems to disturb the operation of the link when I have to click the "Allow" box on the message bar. I would prefer to create a whitelist for this feature so it would not interrupt my banking operations. Failing that, I would like to know how to toggle the feature on and off. Failing that, I would like to know how to defeat the function.

Normally, when Firefox encounters a link with a pseudo-protocol that it doesn't know how to process (such as iTunes store links, which Apple only wants you to open with iTunes), usually Firefox puts up a "Launch Application" dialog each time, which allows the user to choose a program to use for the URL (or, for the way I usually use this dialog, to cancel the attempt to act on the URL completely) - unless you check the "Remember my choice" option, in which case it will stop asking, but put an entry on the Applications page of the Options dialog, in case you want to change the chosen action in the future. However, in the case of the new Windows store URLs, I don't get that dialog and I don't have an entry in the Options; I automatically get thrown off the Desktop and into the Windows store app every time, with no obvious way to change this behavior. What's different about these URLs (or about Firefox's reaction to them) that won't allow me to modify or abort this action?

In our domain we have different user languages. Windows adapts it's gui depending on the username they login with. We have configured Firefox settings through GPO's and build a pakcage with the FF GPO add-in included, with also the 5 different language packs included we use in our domain. We can switch manually the GUI language, but we are looking for a way to automate this, depending on the profile language. I know we can change the user.js file, but I was wondering if there is a way to automate this through GPO's. Something like a variable we can place in the general.useragent.locale that looks for the sytem language? Or another way to automate this?

I created a sync account in June 2012 and synced it periodically. In early January 2014, I was having some pc issues so I backed up all my data on my pc and dropped it off to Best Buy/Geek Squads. My pc has been repaired and returned back to me today. However, it has been reset to factory settings, which meant I had to reinstall Firefox. Of course I no longer had my original recovery key so I had to choose the "no longer have my device" option so that I could recover the recovery key code. So now I am trying to pull in my synced data from the synced Firefox account and I see nothing. I know I am not doing something right. I am not trying to sync on a second device- it is technically the same device. I am just trying to pull in what was previously synced. I feel like a lot of the other forums are for pairing. It's almost as if once I logged into my Firefox account today and recovered the code- like there is a new account. I need to access my bookmarks- they are very important. Thanks!

I work at a middle school and manage student a few hundred student voicethread accounts. Voicethread is a presentation tool that gives students a chance to combine images, video and their narration. I have used Firefox to both access and create voicethreads in the past. Late in 2013 I began having problems accessing my voicethread account whenever I was using Firefox on my main desktop machine. Whenever I would get to the site, I would see the voicethread homepage for a moment, and then the window would turn into a field of white. At first I thought it was a voicethread problem, but now I realize it is a Firefox issue. I say this because I can access my account on other machines using older versions of Firefox, and I can access my voicethread account using Internet Explorer on the same machine that won't allow me into voicethread if I'm using Firefox. I have taken a screen capture video of the issue that you can access by clicking: http://screencast.com/t/BVcYX5G1p

Any help would be much appreciated

I work on PC and was going through my history 6 months and older to see the links I needed to save and delete what I didn't need.

I was deleting three links when the whole thing just went blank. I desperately need to retrieve this history as I need it for work.

I was wondering what to do and if restoring my system to a previous version will affect my firefox history? Please help!

I have FF 26.0 when I try to update to 27 or 28 or now 29 it works fine except that every time I open FF I get the "checking add-ons" pop-up and then when FF opens I get the "welcome and what's new" as though it doesn't remember I've already used the new version. There must be a setting somewhere (about:config) that forces FF to remember this is not the first time I've used the new version ...
