I did the Mozilla Refresh, the recommendation for which popped up today on my browser. It promised that I would get my bookmarks back - but they AND the top Toolbar are now gone. Tried Mozilla Help but can't see any detailed help on restoring the bookmarks and the top of the window browser tool-bar. (found notes on restoring bookmarks, but without the tool-bar they are not accessible). Need to get those back.

I needed to reinstall Windows (again!). Before doing so I saved my profile on to an external drive.

I followed the restore instructions (created a new profile and copy/pasted the saved files to the new profile folder) and can see that all the saved files now reside in the new profile folder but when I start Firefox it doesn't seem to be reading them at all. None of my bookmarks are available at all. It still looks just like a fresh install.

I must have made a mistake somewhere but I can't work out what.

Any insights would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Site: crownguitarfest.org

YouTube videos embedded were working fine until today? Now they error: "An error occurred, please try again later. Learn More.

The videos still work perfectly in Chrome, and work okay in Safari (by installing the "ClickToPlugin" extension to Safari, the videos now play in HTML5 mode but no longer link to You Tube).

In Firefox, they don't play or link to You Tube anymore. I updated to the latest Firefox and Flash. I've been researching this all day today and going back and forth with my hosting support team at Site Ground, but we have not been able to resolve this issue, so I am contacting you out of desperation.

Can you please help me to get the You Tube Videos working properly in Firefox?

Thanks, John

Under the tools drop down I found this: Przycisk aplikacji . The arror allows you to create a new button.

A web search suggests that might be Polish that has something to do with Windows (or maybe FireFox?) in that language.

haven't figureout how to get rid of it-or get it back to an English tool that I can understand.

My OS is Win7 x 64, FireFox is 36.0.1.

I don't check the tools very often, not sure when this showed up. And my language is English with a little bit of Spanish.

I just downloaded the newest version of Firefox (36.0.1) and I have multiple tabs open. I can only see the little logo of the pages that the tabs are, but I can't see anything else unless I click on that specific tab. Although, when I open the Options Menu, all of the tab information shows. And when I'm not doing anything on the actual Firefox browser (like if I click on the taskbar or something), the tab information shows?

I have re-installed Firefox several times. I have no idea what else to do, but it's quite annoying.

Every time I open Firefox, the Master Password prompt appears randomly within about 30 seconds. Sometimes I'm still sitting on the home screen when I get the prompt.

I have tried to refresh Firefox, reinstall Firefox, I've turned my Master Password requirement on and off, restarted the computer... nothing seems to work.

I would either like the prompt right away, as soon as I open my browser, or when it is actually required, like when I open a login page. Not the current, seemingly random appearance that disrupts me in the middle of web browsing.

This bug is so annoying that it is a deal breaker for me. It's especially annoying when I am starting to type something, then the Master Password prompt appears without warning and takes the cursor focus with it. I have to stop what I'm doing, deal with the Master Password prompt, then get back to what I'm doing.

In the meantime, I've switched over to Chrome, which is serving my needs fine, but I would like to come back to Firefox if I can resolve this issue.

I have a few sites with security cameras installed that I access via a browser to monitor them. Everything has always worked fine until about 2 weeks ago. All of a sudden the Web Components plugin keeps timing out and crashing and no matter what I do, I cannot view the cameras any more.

It may be a windows update or a Firefox update so I am wondering if you have any suggestions.

I have submitted a crash report through FF about 3 times when prompted.

Thanks,

Mike

No matter how many times I click on "view" and change my character encoding from Unicode to Western, it keeps defaulting to Unicode. I found info telling me to disable McAfee Site Advisor, but that didn't correct the problem either. With Unicode, Chinese characters appear on my tabs, making it impossible to read or close them. This doesn't happy in I/E using Site Advisor, so it has to be a Firefox issue. Help! Please tell me how to fix this!
