My window 7 laptop updated to the latest version of firefox, all of a sudden my skin was gone, my homepage changed (easy fix), but all my add-ons where gone. I've just re-downloaded adblock and pop up block etc, but they don't seem to work as I'm seeing now adds absolutley everywhere, where I wasn't even aware they would have existed. It's driving me mad! I can see an "old firefox data" folder has been created on my desktop, but how do I restore the same add-ons I had before from that folder? and will they actually work or they just don't work anymore with the new version of firefox?

I'm signed into sync, but add-ons wasn't ticked, so no luck there. I don't really care about the skins, but please get rid of all these ads!!!!

I have put heaps of them adblock add-ons for facebook, for you tube etc, but I don't know if they clash with each other or they just don't work. Whatever i have before was working a charm. I only had 2 of them and they never showed me any ads. Any idea how to have them back and make them work? Thank you so much

I'm using Firefox 38.0.5 for Mac desktop. I'm running OSX Yosemite. When I zoom pages it does not zoom the images. It used to. Sometimes that is the primary reason I am zooming... to see a captcha better, or images like on tumblr or a news page.

Please help and return this functionality! Thanks, Tom.

When going to Tool Bar menu Tools>Options>General, where is the OK button? My Tools>Options>General only shows a "?" Question mark icon at the bottom of the dialogue window. I as well as other users miss the "OK" button. What is going on Mozilla Support? Don't want to switch to Chrome, but I need an answer as I have no way of knowing that the preferences I select in Privacy section are implemented. Without the "OK" button, I have no assurance that the changes have been made. Mozilla Firefox was better when the "OK" button was in place.

I don't like the animation firefox's using to go fullscreen. I disabled "browser.fullscreen.animateUp" by changing value to zero. Now the problem is I don't see tab bar when I hover mouse on top of screen. This option is not simply disabling the animation but also my access to tab bar in fullscreen. Is there a work around? Thanks.

Not even sure what started this in the first place, but out of nowhere, Yahoo has become my default browser for when I type search items in the address bar AND in the small search bar to the side. I do not want this at all. I prefer Google and always have. I've changed both of them back to Google repeatedly (by going into about:config and all that), yet every time I restart my computer (or even put it to sleep), it defaults back to Yahoo. Not sure what's going on here, but if anyone has had a similar problem and knows what's going on and how it may be fixed, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I did the requested "refresh" of Firefox but now have multiple problems.

1) Search Engine changed from Google to Yahoo. This is a royal pain as Firefox does not provide easy solution. Should be basic option. 2) Lost my Home page - fixed that 3) When I minimize Firefox, it dies. Have to restart it every time. 4) Pinned Tabs aren't remembered across sessions 5) Does not show as being active in Windows Taskbar

EXTREMELY frustrated with this "performance refresh".

I have a wildcard SSL certificate used to secure a live and test site. With identical code the test site shows fine in Firefox (Windows Version 38.0.5) but the live site will not show and replaces the page with: "Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to app.cognisess.com. Invalid OCSP signing certificate in OCSP response. (Error code: sec_error_ocsp_invalid_signing_cert)

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem."

The security details show the certificate as "Verified by: Not specified" in the live site, while test site shows verified by GlobalSign nv-sa

Presumably if it's the same certificate, we shouldn't get an error in one place but not an other. Working fine with no errors on latest Chrome/IE, etc. I've verified there is no mixed-content on the page both manually and via whynopadlock.com.

Live site is https://app.cognisess.com and test site just replace app with testing.

Any ideas? I'd appreciate any help fixing this issue at our end if it's not a bug in the browser.

Hi, how do i sync the Pocket's (is this an "app"? or a Firefox "add-on"?)... saved links' (ie. the links i've saved using Pockets so far)

content (ie. not just the links themselves, but the actual content on these 

webpages!) to my OSs? (eg, my Windows XP, my iMac desktop (Yosemite), and

my Android phone v. 4.1.2)

(BTW, This question is verrrrrrrry important to me, and actually the

whole reason i got pocket in the first place!!!)

Can i sync the actual CONTENT of my saved pocket list webpages to

my computers? Not just the links?

If so, can i do this via Firefox? (I don't want to use Chrome, and i only

use Firefox for everything!) (I thought this was an addon offering from

Firefox, but maybe i was mistaken...?)

And, if it is possible, do i need to install Pocket separately on the Firefox

of every OS i have? (I have a Mac, and also an Android phone.)

DO i also need to download anything else, or configure anything else, in

order to get offline access to my saved lists' content?

You see, the reason it's so important to me, is that i often can't get

internet access where i'm at. I use wireless, which is spotty and when the

weather's bad or whatever the signal doesn't come through...

Thanks for your help!

Lost most all my tab groups AGAIN! Third or fourth time, Im sick of it! I read some reviews about group managers, & basically they werent very good. If I want to back up something else on my computer, or copy & rename it, ITS EASY!

Isnt there a little program that would just backup up that jstore thingy each day? I could just hit it every day. Im good at backups, bad at having to remember proceedures like are required to back up that file every day. I can never even remember where it is.

I welcome your advice on add-ons, or easy ways to backup the jstore thing.

One installation of Firefox 38.0.5 on windows 8.1 does not display spinner box controls (see attached image). They are there but with 1 or 2 pix height as clicking the grey bar sometimes increases and sometimes decreases the numeric value.

Tried creating a new profile with no addons. Same problem. Haven't tried reinstalling Firefox yet.

This is not a problem with the website as this occurs on all sites with this type of form element.

It is also probably not a Firefox bug as I have Firefox 38.0.5 on Windows 7 at work that displays these form elements correctly.

Zoom (Ctrl +/-) does not change the erroneous appearance of the controls.

Any idea how to fix this?
