For some reason, the Ctrl+L keyboard shortcut to focus on the location bar has stopped working in Firefox. I'm running version 38.0. Have tried restarting Firefox in safe mode with all extensions disabled and it still did not work. The alternative shortcut, Alt+D, does work.

Any ideas??

Is there an add-on that allows me to right click on both address bar and tabs and copy the url (using context menu)?

I know there are other add-ons allowing me to copy url by right clicking on the text of a web page to copy the url. But I specifically want to be able to do this within the address bar AND by right-clicking on an open tab.

Saw the typical 'your computer is taking a long time' you can do this... message at the bottom. Have done it before. Went to the utility gizmo, went through the process to refresh and restablish Firefox defaults - whatever. The next time Firefox comes up it's like I was never on it ???? It wants me to sign in. First it doesn't recognize my password then I forgot my user name. When I eventually get to a start screen ALL MY BOOK MARKS from the last 8 years are GONE ? ? ? ? ?

Recently, I upgraded to Firefox 38.0 beta version. Now when I am use Firefox to get to AOL.... on many of the links to new stories I get this 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."

The problem is that ....I can access some news stories by clicking on AOL links but on others I can't. If my computer wasn't accepting cookies then wouldn't it fail to connect to ALL AOL links? Plus this seems to be a problem on with the new version of Firefox. I can still access stories on AOL if I use Chrome. But I don't wan to use Chrome if I don't have to. Not amused on bit.

I'm running the Beta version of Firefox for Mac so I figured I'd post here before reporting the issue in case it's a known problem.

Each time that Firefox attempts to sync my data it fails. I've tried resetting my password three times and each time Firefox has confirmed my login and begun synching my data, only for it to fail once again. I experience the same issue using Firefox Beta for Android (running KitKat).

Is there a way to rectify the Sync issues or is this probably a Beta issue?

Dear admins,

I have updated my Mozilla Firefox Beta yesterday and I am facing crashes quite often since then. The crash doesn't appear straight away after I start my Firefox, it appears randomly. Obviously, the issue is with the latest version as it never happened before the update.

So please please please sort it out because it is really annoying or I will have to uninstall it and use some other browsers.

I will look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

Out of the blue Firefox will block Google (my home page) and display a security page stating

"This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.google.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure...."

After confirming the exception for Google I am presented with "Invalid URL"

Idiots on the wed concerning this issue always say the same thing as if no one has ever thought to clear the cache, delete the history, and restart Firefox; there has to be some other reason this keeps happening. Sometimes I give up an leave the computer because I cannot access Google.

The screen shot will not upload so if you would like to see them provide an email address and I will send them.
