Private windows should leave no record of previous usage in the computer, right? When using a private windows, autocomplete is offering options, and moreover options of fills I have never used. For example, when trying to login to an email account, I get the options for accounts that are not mine (nor of any friend that has ever used my computer).

Is this ok (if so, why? shouldn't there be no info stored at all) or should I be worrying about my computer/network being compromised??

Every time when I click option, Firefox create a new tab of about;preference and stops to responds. Also the same thing happens when I downloads something. I would add an image but it turns out that clicking "browse" image to add to this question crashes it too. I have re-installed(completely uninstall and install again) and refreshed Firefox and its the same.

Recently with the release of Firefox 40. I have been plagued with an issue of Windows Vista freezing. No response from the operating system at all. The only time this happens is while Firefox is online and on a website. None of the websites are bad. It even locked up on Microsoft's Website as well as Mozilla's website. No mouse or keyboard activity. Hard shutdown is needed to regain control. I may be wrong looking at Firefox as a possible suspect in this. Just curious if anyone else with Windows Vista have the same issue lately. I prefer Firefox over all others. But currently about to test an alternate browser to keep the system off IE! Reformat of the OS, then a test of the RAM passed the memory check software. The system is not getting hot. When Firefox is left running, perhaps even minimized, it freezes. Windows Log reads COM+ error, Kernel Errors and multiple other errors. All on a fresh install of the OS. No virus or malware in the system either. I cannot locate a valid reason for this. Any ideas?

Is it or isn't it required ?

Why doesn't Mozilla load ALL my tabs and windows (the previous session... in it's ENTIRETY) after a crash?!

I have the latest version of the Mozilla Firefox browser running on a Windows 8.1 machine. When the program crashes (after having too many tabs loaded usually... or from other reasons) and restarts after, it restores tabs and windows from... let's say a week or even two before, so what happened in the last one or two weeks is gone. My most recent tabs and windows - gone. It's hard to recreate those tabs and study patterns from history and it's a really frustrating problem! It NEVER restored what I had opened in that (pretty 'epic') time interval... or simply EVERYTHING... so my last tabs are simply missing. My sessions last pretty long (weeks... and as long as it can stand before crashing) whereas I rarely shut down the computer and usually put it on sleep.

I also installed a tab manager (it's called 'Auto Unload Tab') to keep the maximum number of loaded tabs minimal/ low, but it STILL gets to a peak, starts running very slow and eventually crashes... (and then I end up with the last of my browsing tabs missing.) I just want it to save and to update the state of my session(s) more often... not once at two weeks, LOL! But it's probably another software engineering problem... I don't know.

I appreciate and I'm grateful for your help, guys, so thank you!

On two different profiles, the Customize option simply isn't working. I see three different places on the GUI to click on Customize, and none works. Nothing happens when I click on them, beyond the letters "Customize" appearing at the top of a tab.

After appearing earlier this evening, the LastPass icon is also failing to appear on both profiles.

Once firefox opened this morning, a message appeared that firef was working slowly. It asked if I wanted to fix. I said yes and it removed all my browser's addons and extensions and appearance. Things like (the ones I remember) Adblock, how to increase font size, color tabs. These may slow ff down, but they are useful. on my desk top there is a folder called "old ff data" I've tried restoring, but obviously I have no clue as to how.
