Hi

I always have "Clear history when Firefox closes" checked. But since a few days it doesn't work. I close Firefox, then restart it, hit Ctrl+H and see that the history is still there. When I hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete and click OK(in Clear Recent History window) it works, it deletes the history but it doesn't delete user names even though I have everything checked in that window.

I hope that's a detailed description. English is not my first language, if you don't understand anything I said, please tell me.

In FF 37.0 getting secure connection failed connecting to a website. Works fine in previous version. Config parameter version.fallback-limit default setting is 3. In previous version the default setting was 1. Does the setting version.fallback-limit to 3 mean only TLS1.2 is supported. Any help is appreciated. Secure Connection Failed

On one of my Yahoo pages, Ad Block Plus is causing a problem (hard to describe unless I attach a screenshot; let me know if a screenshot will help), but was thinking of Un-installing Ad Block Plus and then re-installing it again to see if this would solve the problem.

How would I un-install Ad Block Plus.......and then re-install it again?

Thank you!

I just want to know what the latest version of Firefox is. I'm not asking where I can download the latest version. In the past when I've gone to Firefox help and "About Firefox" It said I had the latest version when in fact I didn't. So I just want to know where I can go to find out what the latest version is. When I Google "What is the latest version of Firefox" it only tells me where to go for the download but not what the latest version is.

Thanks, dycon

For past 3 days when I logged in to Facebook, it doesn't load like it supposed to be. It shows in white background, blue script, and messy arrangement. Already done what comes to my mind like clear the cookies and cache, fix the date and time setting. But it doesn't fix the problem. What can I do to fix this problem?

Firefox invalid security certificate page missing "add exemption"

Suddenly two valid websites that I frequent are now considered by Firefox to have invalid security certificates, Airbnb.com and sanjoseca.gov (the City of San Jose's official website). The return page from Firefox states the certificates are invalid but NO "ADD EXEMPTION" is listed on the page as an option.

I have waited more than 10 minutes to upload the image and it still hasn't loaded. It has the Technical Details, and the "Get me out of here link" but no "add exemption" link.

I use Airbnb.com frequently and I need a stable interface with them. I contacted both companies and they both told me that they were not aware that their certificate wasn't being recognized by Firefox and that I should download and use Google Chrome instead.

This isn't the first time I've had issues with Firefox. Frequently when applying for a job online, the application forms are not properly exhibited in Firefox but are in Internet Explorer. This makes applying for work very difficult!

It's been 15 minutes and still the image hasn't loaded. I can't wait any longer. Please tell me how to fix this glitch. Thank you.

Recently did a clean install of Windows 7. Installed Firefox, and text on webpages looks horrible. Here is a screenshot

http://i.imgur.com/U5R84Bc.png

I tried disabling hardware acceleration, no effect. I reinstalled the Arial font, which the web inspector says is being used, no effect. I have font smoothing turned off, and I am keeping it that way, I hate font smoothing

I know it can be fixed since I fixed it in the past without turning on font smoothing, I just can't remember how I did it.

Since today, Firefox crashes every time without fail if I open a new tab (either using keyboard shortcut or the new tab button). This more or less makes firefox unusable. I tried to reinstall but didnt work. I also attempted to disable all addons. I'm not sure if I have to uninstall a plugin?

Note: Opening an link from another page does not result in a crash.

My netbook becomes extremely inefficient when encountering auto-play video advertisements on the internet. I followed every online self-help, and in all made the following changes:

One last thing before I switch to another browser for linux, 50% of the online tutorial say to set "plugins.click_to_play" to "true" and others say set to false. Thus I tried both and NONE worked for https://login.yahoo.com/! The annoying video advertisement always plays on the left half of the screen and my netbook becomes unusable.

Immediately after installing the update to 37.0 on my older Windows Vista machine Dashlane 3.2.4 ceased to work in the browser. Still opens and works outside of the browser. My windows 7 machine took the update to 37.0 just fine with no problems with Dashlane. (using windows7 machine now)

I have disabled/uninstalled the extension then enabled/reinstalled all to no avail.

This seems to be a recurring problem with Firefox; is there any cure. Can't work without my passwords!

(as long as I'm here: why does Firefox keep blocking the use of Flash? What a pain in the rump ... )

I am really getting tired of this. If it happens one more time, i will just switch to chrome. Randomly, like every few weeks, my firefox restarts and all of the default search engines are back and yahoo is the default. I want google as my default. I set google as the default and I remove all the others. Works great until, again, randomly, a firefox update?, and I'm back to Yahoo as the default with all search engines available as an option.

I would like this to stop. I made my choice, how do I get it to stick without having to install an addon?

I have antivirus and my machine says it's clean.
