See the previous page where several users explain the situation. When I click on "BOOKMARKS" in the menu bar the "most used" information comes up showing HISTORIC information as to what sites I had used over time--NOTHING TO DO WITH BOOKMARKS.

Why is it that everything navigation wise becomes so very difficult to use a computer. I have had a computer since 1986, and feel that I have to take a course on every move I make on any system. All used to be SIMPLE and clear cut. Change for the sake of change is just inconveniencing the user/customer.

I have tried to update my Adobe Flashplayer at least 4 or 5 times. But each time I go to check it still shows version 12. Today, I went into computer programs and deleted version 12 off my computer, hoping this would solve the problem. It shows the newer version 17 I already downloaded to update my flashplayer.

Why does it still show version 12 with update message when I go to check if it updated?

Adobe shows version 17 in the list, and in my computer programs (shows as shockwave flash).

How do I delete the older version off firefox and make sure I'm using the current version?

I followed these two articles to create local self signed certificates and they have been working fine since February. Now with the update to 37.0.1 I get "Secure Connection Failed" while trying to access my local website through FireFox. IE and Google Chrome have no problem accessing the local site.

http://www.jayway.com/2014/09/03/creating-self-signed-certificates-with-makecert-exe-for-development/ http://www.jayway.com/2014/10/27/configure-iis-to-use-your-self-signed-certificates-with-your-application/

I have already deleted cert8.db, restarted FF, then re-imported the self signed certificates but get the same error. No other software has changed on this box except the automatic upgrade to FF 37.0.1.

The network setting is already set to use "No Proxy"

How do I fix this?

after update, then reboot, I was forced ("x" generated that I have to choose) to select. I selected "Safe Browsing" instead of "default". Instead of my old looking Firefox, I get a brand new browser with absolutely no bookmarks. I need my bookmarks. Virus? I've no "quit" under top right menu. Refresh doesn't restore.

Every time firefox is launched, the spinning beach ball appears, sometimes immediately, sometimes within a minute or two, every time. Must force quit. I have re-installed Firefox and also have refreshed with no change. Unless this is fixed, Firefox is unusable. I am running OSX 10.9.5 on a 17" MacBook Pro.

I cannot access any information through Firefox, because t always hangs.

I updated to Yosemite on my iMac. Firefox then began to freeze. I uninstalled Firefox and then downloaded/installed it again. It's possible I uninstalled everything Mozilla related. I'm not sure. How do I recover bookmarks, passwords, etc? I don't believe I previously had a username & password for Mozilla. I do have my Mac backed up in Time machine and also a Carbon Copy Clone.

Also, I was able to migrate setting from Safari. Perhaps I don't want some of that stuff? Looking at the list of installed plugins, I have no clue if they're standard Apple/Mozilla stuff, or if they were selected by me/my family earlier in Safari? Are any of them a threat to my online security?

Any detailed instruction would be most appreciated. I'm not much of a tech guy.

Thanks.

I use Firefox to bulk print Ebay invoices. It's been just fine for years. But 2 days ago it started printing just every other page in full. Intervening pages had only the top 20% printed (headers and footers are set to blank), and it prints one extra blank sheet at the end of the print run. 'Fit to page width' is enabled. I print at A5 size. When I check print preview it shows the problem exactly. The preview confirms 80% of every second page is missing, and there is an extra blank page at the end. Anyone else have this problem?

Greetings,

Before anyone gives me a response saying its probably my cookies, I've done that already after following the advice on another users post with the same issue.

I can login fine on all of my portable devices and Internet Explorer. I'm running Windows 8.1 Enterprise edition with the most recent stable build of Firefox (37.0.1 at time of post).

This occurs with all of my addons /extensions turned off.

Its not the login details that are wrong as I get a username and password error if I enter them incorrectly (I did it deliberately). I enter my details, the page goes back to the homepage as its supposed to but I'm not logged in.

I don't know if it makes any difference but when I go to Options>Privacy - If I select "Use custom settings for history", and click OK. When I go back into the menu its reverted back to the default "Remember history"

Ive been having trouble with all my browsers, going to pretty much any website... getting unverified certificate. I have no Virus Protector currently running, because everything I tried (Kaspersky, Avast, F-Secure, Intego, etc) multiple problems occured, which even each companies technical depts' had a hard time understanding. Ive just completely uninstalled Firefox and all data, deleted all profiles, removed all associated files, and then reinstalled the new 37.0.1. In my Preferences here are a few screen shots of just a few of the certificates I have. I dont know how they are getting there, or how to secure my system. Any Help would be greatly appreciatted. thanks.

FYI... I see below the "InstalledPlugin" info...... This is not anything I installed at any point in time. I am the only user on this computer/only person with physical access.

Started having issues with getting into games, both on Facebook and other sites, starting yesterday. Have been trouble shooting everything, even my Mac IOS with Apple. (Have no trouble with Safari getting to any website.) So I updated to the latest Firefox, tried to refresh Firefox and have still not been able to clear cookies from history. It hangs and I must then force quit Firefox. In the meantime, I can't get to any of my games on Firefox. (The hanging when I try to clear cookies has happened for months.)
