After installing Firefox 34.0.5 I am now getting a pop-up window with a prompt to "Please enter the master password for the Software Security Device" every time I open the browser. I don't know what has changed in my settings after updating Firefox to cause this to happen. Can you advise me how to get this to stop?

Yesterday, I'm assuming Firefox updated without asking or telling me, and now the way that my search toolbar functions is totally different. I don't like it. I want to be able to use the old search bar, where you can click the arrow by the magnifying glass logo to chose from a very simple list of search engines to set the search bar to. I don't want to pick one default and then chose a different one every time I want to use a different one. Sometimes I need to look a lot of things in a row up on Wikipedia, and it's a lot easier to just set the search bar to Wikipedia once and continue searching there, without having to go into preferences and change my default, or without having to chose Wikipedia every single time I search. This is ridiculous, the search bar wasn't broken, and I don't see any reason why I should have to chose between using a crappy inferior version of a very simple straightforward toolbar or going back to the old version and being vulnerable to security threats. I also don't want the top of my screen loaded up with an add-on toolbar. I just want Firefox to function the way it functioned yesterday. Please tell me there is a way to change it back to the way it was yesterday without putting myself at risk.

Need Help - Suddenly I Can Only View last 2 Days of History, However Full History (> 1 Year Ago) Remains in places.sqlite File (When I Search History)

I have 3 computers running the current version of Firefox, and I rely heavily on my past browsing history (like to re-visit past sites that I find helpful or that few products that I am interested in). All was fine until a few days ago, when I noticed that I could only view the past 2 days worth of history in all 3 installations of the browser. I have researched the subject, and tried various suggestions (such as making sure that "delete" history settings are not activated, but so far nothing has helped. I was able to tell that all of my pas history remains in the "places.sqlite" file, because on someone elses suggestion, I tried searching the history file using the generic term "www", and all my history is visible in the results (going back over 1 year). I also tried looking at the settings in the "about:config" Firefox settings page, and tied changing 2 settings that I hoped might help (they were "privacy .clearOnS hutdown.history" which I changed to "false" and also "services-sync.prefs.sync.privacy.clearOnShutdown.history" which I also changed to "false"); however none of these changes helped, and once I re-started Firefox I could only see the past 2 days of history, once again. (I have copied and pasted my Firefox “Troubleshooting Information” to the end of this question, for reference to all of my settings). What can I do to be able to see > the last 2 day of history again (without having to preform a search in history based on a specific word or phrase)? Thanks so much for your help with this issue.

Earlier today I clicked on a link from a medical provider portal. Yes, secured. I logged in, took care of some business, logged out. Later I got an email telling me there was a message. This is all pretty normal and I have done it often. When I tried to connect to the website via their link and then from the browser address manually, I got this:

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.

Well, I checked my cookie settings and they are open (accept cookies). I have not changed any security setting or cookie settings nor have I added any ad blocking software since this morning.

I used another browser (Chrome) and connected in about 2 seconds. Firefox is my preferred browser. This is frustrating. I have the latest version of Firefox, and the latest updated version of Windows 7.

  • (Please Note that I have perused and enabled all prior suggestions and/or links in response to the issues herein, to no avail.)

ISSUE No.1: Continuing to experience barely survivable online performance absent (Adobe Flash Player (Shockwave) v16.0.0.235 and, now v.16.0.0.257; all updates are automatically enabled. However, Although plugin for same reflects installation, it is not enabled. Continual Unresponsive Scripts popups, freezes, stalls, disabling, screen flips, "slow" is an understatement! I have run all remedial scans, all protective programs scheduled and no viruses, bugs, aboard. This is a never-ending nightmare - Adobe Flash Player 14.+++++ was similarly corrupted; but then v. 15.+++++, w/the second of two Adobe Bulletins came into focus _ 15.+++++ worked! So relieved, then suddenly, v. 16.0.0.235 arrived, the worst yet! Now, yet another January 2015 Bulletin.

Does anyone have a viable step-by-step resolution to this 24/7 heartache?! Recently read a blurb regarding shutting down Internet Explorer (which I cannot locate currently!) that the shut down will aid in the installation of Adobe Flash . . . is there any value to trying this? Note:I have uninstalled and reinstalled Flash Player several times. About shutting down IE, brief post on other forum referred to the same resolving Flash Player install, desktop icon distortions, and menu visuals (screenshot hereto). Truth??

ISSUE No. 2: Worse, suddenly last week, my Bookmarks Toolbar not only disappeared, but clicking Bookmarks, Show All Bookmarks, the check mark next to Bookmarks Toolbar is gone, and a form appears that reflects bookmarks toolbar folder. Consequently, I am not able to access my myriad of exceedingly important and heavily accessed Bookmarked Folders. Additionally, right clicking the mouse for the Star Symbol to bookmark a document "Save Page As" does not respond. I have not the slightest inkling where to go with this. Mind, before posting herein, I do much searching for answers. This particular issue is of paramount importance for me. Finally, I have resorted to going to my bookmarks backup and recent enabled dates did not work, so I went all the way back to mid-December, and now the Show All Bookmarks is totally empty. What the *%&I%^R#%$%& is going on??!!

I had somehow thought that Windows requires that Internet Explorer be on-board in order to work. Or, am I mistaken and it was that Outlook Express only would work when used in concert with IE? Heretofore, I used WIN XP and Outlook Express. Now, Windows 7 Ultimate Professional and Gmail.

Please see attached screenshots in reference to above-entitled issues.

I currently sync bookmarks across 3 computers and my ipad. Recently, bookmarks seems to be disappearing randomly. Sometimes whole folders, sometimes the folder remains but is empty. On other occassions after I recreate the bookmark, they randomly appear but in a completely different order. Today, they have duplicated randomly so I have numerous folders with the same name appear in my bookmarks, I'm guessing as a result of me recreating them when they have disappeared.

I am the only person with access to these computers.

Can you please help as it's getting extremely annoying.

Kind regards

Is there a place where Contributors can discuss each new firefox update (for specific updated elements and customizability)

The first image i've uploaded shows the way my context menu is in safe mode and the second one shows the way it is in normal mode. I've removed the other three buttons (with menu editor) because i don't find them very practical, but my question is why are they vertical in my normal mode and horizontal in safe mode?

And another comment , i don't think the way the search engine looks is very practical or useful to the average user. There used to be a great addon called web search pro and probably a few others, that did basically the same thing ,but i don't think a lot of people will make use of the way the search engine looks now and i would actually like to see an addon that brings back the standard search engine similar to this: https://addons.mozilla.org/bg/firefox/addon/manage-search-engines-button/

Or at least have the option to choose between the two

Seriously. I have been a LONGTIME user of Mozilla, but they are becoming too much like Apple in the sense that they are forcing a user interface on me without customization options.

I HATE tabs. I use ALT+Tab to switch between ALL Windows, and forcing my Firefox windows into tabs takes away my ability to do this efficiently. As a 20+ year computer user, I know what I like, and tabs do not fit into my style.

I just tried "Classic Them Restorer," but this doesn't solve my problem. It saves on space (another huge issue with tabs), but I still don't want tabs.

If I can't solve this problem, I'm finding a new browser.

Firefox was crashing regularly and when did work Flash would crash within it, causing issues on many sites I went to. I was offered update for Flash for Firefox and Java for Firefox (computer kept saying Java out of date though computer Java was most recent so assumed again was Firefox issue) when I did this my computer froze upon auto restart and now will not start. I am not just saying Firefox won't start but my entire computer refuses to load/start up. I do not know what to do. Computer, except Firefox and Flash when on Firefox, was working fine before this. FYI: No error messages given, and I am not on crashed computer. I need advice ASAP.
