For several recent updates of FireFox all my ID's and passwords (saved in password manager) disappear. I have been able to retrieve them by swapping one or more of three files from a previous version ("Key3.db", "Logins.json", & "Prefs.js") UNTIL THE LAST THREE OR FOUR UPDATES. This fix no longer works and I am therefore reluctant to update any more. I would like to know... a) Has this bug been fixed? b) If it hasn't, how can I store my ID's & Passwords elsewhere so I can quickly re-install them or at least see them in a list so I can manually copy them all back in again? c) How can I stop an annoying pop-up telling me to update FireFox (other than by updating it)?

I have used FireFox happily for many years but this problem is very annoying and I am looking to change (very reluctantly) to some other browser if another update loses all ID's & Passwords and I have to re-install an older version to get them back. Please help if you can -- and thanks for considering this problem.

I had to create a new profile. I exported the bookmarks from the old profile into the new one. All of the bookmarks that were on the bookmarks toolbar are in the new profile, but none of the bookmarks under the old bookmarks tab are under the new one (in the new profile). And there was no link to the bookmarks manager (in the new profile). How do I get it back?

Hi,

I have FVD Speed dial and Eversync installed on my Windows 7 laptop, which I've been using for ages now and never had any problems whatsoever. One of my speed dials is for my Gmail account, but I cannot get into my email on my laptop that has Windows 8.1 installed from Firefox or Cyberfox even though I can do so without difficulty using Chrome and Opera. On this same laptop (running W8) all the rest of the speed dials are fine - it's only the Gmail one that won't work and I get the following message:

"The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

I have tried every single troubleshooting guide I can find (including going into about:config and making changes there) but to no avail and it doesn't seem (from what I've read) that anyone else has this perculiar problem that I'm experiencing.

As Gmail is one of the speed dials I use the most, it's getting really frustrating and I love this browser so don't want to have to ditch it, but if I can't get this fixed I'm afraid I'm going to have to.

Can anyone help me please?

Thanks

I like Firefox. I'm running 33.1.1 on a year-old MacBook Pro running OS X 10.9.5. Here's the issue: I have noted that my MacBook Pro will begin to heat rapidly, and the fan will turn on - usually within 60-90 seconds of opening Firefox. Here's what I did so far: I scaled back the version of Flashplayer - still no difference. Then I started Firefox in "safe mode", and the problem did NOT re-occur. I restarted Firefox - Add-ons enabled, and the heating/fan started again. I "reset" Firefox, and it still occurs. I started it in "safe mode" again, and the problem does not re-occur. I have one add-on: AdBlock. As for plug-ins, they are all set to "Ask to Activate"

I thought at first that it was the AdBlock add-on, but this was not the case.

The webpage where I most frequently encounter this is nytimes.com, which is set as my homepage. If I move off that page into something random, like a Wordpress Page, the issue stops: the computer begins to cool and the fan turns off.

This has not occurred in Safari with nytimes.com loaded as the webpage. I left it running for 10 minutes, and no heat, no fan.

Is there a fix for this? Anyone else experienced this?

Under about:preferences#security, you can choose what sites can download add-ons without you needing to allow it thru the Exceptions button by Warn Me When Sites Try To Install Add-ons

The defaults are; marketplace.firefox.com and addons.mozilla.org

But every time Firefox is restarted, this list is deleted. Even resetting Firefox does not fix this. I deleted the prefs.js file, but no joy. I checked, and found this enter in the file, but it will not display when Firefox is started.

dom.mozApps.signed_apps_installable_from;https://marketplace.firefox.com

I even downgraded from Firefox 34.0.5 to 33.1.1 but the issue is still there.

As far as I can tell, this is the only setting that is having trouble.

Every so often firefox will seem to freeze, however it hasn't actually crashed. Videos & music will continue to play, text boxes can still be interacted with, links, tool bars, the menu, etc can be interacted with,the cursor changes to its appropriate one for the needed job, and actually work(presumably), but the screen itself is frozen and doesn't change. According to the task manager it is responding and working properly, it closes normally and upon reopening it works properly and show no signs of having crashed. My assumption is that Flash is causing it(that seems to be how it happens most) however without being able to force it to happen(and 70% of my internet usage requiring it) I cant really test to make sure. Note: Firefox just update to the newest version when I was checking so I wouldn't know if that will fix it.

I have written in about this before; I originally set the "Location Bar" inside the Firefox settings NOT to suggest my bookmarks, but after a while it was starting to ignore that command and it would set itself back up after restarting Firefox to suggest bookmarks when typing in a web address. This problem was solved by setting up a new profile within Firefox. After that, this problem no longer existed.

Now as of today, the problem is back. I wish there was a way to contact developers of Firefox and let them know of this issue. If there are no other solutions out there except for setting up a new profile, fine but it's starting to get annoying that I have to go through this process everytime this problem happens.

I am loving FF and the extensions.

However, I want the extensions to be put in the order that I want.

For example, there are some "active" extensions, such as AWESOME SCREEN SHOT, that I want to be displayed. There are some "passive" extensions, like SELF-DESTRUCTING COOKIES, that I want in the >> drop down menu, as I don't actually interact with them regularly.

Is this something that can be done?

Mac OS X 10.10.1 Firefox 33.1.1

Sincerely, William.
