I need to allow a pop up for paypal permanently, but once Firefox is closed and re-opened, it has to be allowed again the next time I need it. I have set Firefox to clear cookies and cashe on closing, could this be why? Although I've always done that and it used to remember it, I never had to reset it each time I open Firefox.

I depend on Group Tabs and if/when FireFox crashes sometimes sessionstore.js gets corrupted. I regularly archive copies of that file so I can recover. In one of the latest versions (after 11/8/2014) it appears that you have either changed the method or hidden sessionstore.js somewhere other than on my C:/ drive. it is no longer "findable" with "show hidden files" turned on

1. Will you tell me/us where it is now located or 2. Tell me/us how to recover our sessions

the New Tab has large icons, Face Book is one and there are others. I don't want to disable pop ups in general, just this new ad bar that just started appearing across the bottom of every page or tab that I access with Firefox.

hi about 2 days ago ff stopped working. i type an address into the usual window like i've done a million times, hit enter, and nothing happens. i click on a bookmark, the url shows up in the address window, but nothing happens. there are maybe 3 bookmarks that still work, and all the rest are duds. auto-complete still works, but firefox refuses to take to the address. i get a lot of "flash crashes" (thanks, adobe) so i recently updated flash, and that started the problem. this is why i distrust updates. (for the record, i keep current with firefox updates, even though it is still bloatware that uses 2 GB just to run 3 windows. anyway, any help you could offer would be most... helpful! (not sure why my exclamation points are printing as open-brackets, but hey, whatever, that's the internet) thanks, tim

Every time I open any webpage in firefox, IE or even google chrome my Shockwave flash crashes. Especially in firefox. I've tried updating, uninstalling, reinstalling, clearing my cache, restarting firefox, going through every shockwave trouble shoot from reseting the shockwave cache to turning off hardware acceleration but none of it fixes the problem. I can't even open my home page without it crashing at least 3 or 4 times. Thank you for your time and help.

Ever since the last "update" 33.1 then 33.1.1 I've been unable to just clink a link in a Google search and a new tab opens why? Is it because Firefox is no longer going to use Google as it's prime search engine and it's a sneaky way of getting people to use Yahoo?

Can't change the search engine. There's no search field at the top of my browser. Only an address field. I don't know where it went or how to put it back. I switched my search engine to DuckAndGo on the new tab page and the search logo disappeared so now I can't change my search engine from there.

After the second-to-last update, I started noticing an increase in browser crashes. The issue is always that the Plugin-Container has stopped working. I understand that the plugin container's function is to prevent such problems, but it does not appear to be working. I have the latest version of Firefox, updates, etc, but that doesn't seem to be helping. Crash reports have been sent to Mozilla, but the problem is ongoing. I use my browser heavily in both standard and incognito mode for business. I've used Firefox for a long time, but if I keep losing information mid-process, I'm going to have to consider other options. If anyone has any experience with the problem or suggestions on a possible solution, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Nomenica

Well, it looks that I may have found out the answer to my question by submitting this question. One has to ask a question, then choose the not-satisfied with answers found option, then go through all the steps to "create an account" in order get registered for Support and to get one's question answered. Seems like a tedious way to sign up for Mozilla tech support, but there it is.

How come the syncing of Bookmarks destroys my bookmarks on my Desktop?

I need to restore the Bookmarks several times a day and a few moments/minutes/ hours later, the restore is gone.

This could not be the meaning of syncing bookmarks between various PC's / platforms?

I just bought a new PC and transferred my Firefox Profile from an external drive to my new PC after downloading Firefox. Everything is fine (all my bookmarks and extensions are there), but Firefox will no longer save my passwords, nor were any "saved" from my old profile. I can sign into websites, but no "save password" prompt appears on the page. I'm not in Private Browsing mode. I restarted FF in safe mode and turned off hardware acceleration and still no save prompt.
