Ever since I did a FF refresh (what a mistake that was!) my computer is pretty foreign to me now. But, what I think is rather bothersome is when I try and add a bookmark from the bookmark icon at the top of the page, it does not work properly any longer now. Specifically, I used to be able to add a you tube music video to a specific location labeled new folder, instead of my usual bookmark menu folder that I use to normally add a bookmark. When I try and add a you tube video to my new folder bookmark, it will not appear in that location any longer. What in is going on now? If I would have thought doing a refresh was going to screw up my computer to the extent it has, I would have NEVER done so. FF presents the refresh operation as a good thing to solve FF problems. But it actually creates more problems than it solves. Can someone explain why I can no longer add a new bookmark to my new folder location, like I used to be able to do? Please help. Thank you.

No one seems to care about my (and at least one other person's) problem about getting a mobile webpage on a hard-core desktop computer with Windows 7

My desktop PC (HP 520-1020 all-in-1, windows v7) insists on loading web page designed for mobile and phone devices. What I need to do is not available on the mobile web page. I can't do what I need to do on the mobile version. I have a full-blown, dual processor desktop running Windows 7 home premium version.

This question was last asked (without any response or reply at all) back in July, 2016. I have this problem, and while it was awkward, I usually could work around it. Now it is not possible, however awkward, to work around it. I need an answer because this problem occurs in whatever browser I am using -- either Chrome or Firefox. I've tried changing the so-called "useragent" but that does nothing to help.

Yesterday was fine and switched off. This morning took a long time to load, everything looked normal, Thunderbird works fine, then open Firefox, just the basic start page, all bookmarks, addons and history gone. The Profile is dated today and seems empty of data.

Did Firefox do an automatic update? and how can I get back all my data?

Regards Drachsi

PS. also had to re-register as my Mozzila login details don't work any more.

In the time presenting feature in the upper right of the screen, is there a way to re-set it so that it gives the ongoing seconds, and not just the hour and minutes? My Firefox always had this feature until about the last 24 hours. Suddenly it disappeared. Do you know if Firefox just suddenly withdrew this cynically from all its users? Being able to anticipate when the minute will change is important for accurately setting timing devices. Thanks, folks. Jim San Francisco

Hello guys! For about a year so I changed my mainly web browser from Chrome to Firefox mainly because of one reason, auto-deleting. I have been happy with the browser for a bit over 1 year. But recently the browser have started to auto-delete my history. My first tabs with Firefox is no longer available for me and I find it very sad. :( I have tried everything to get it back, but nothing works.

But unfortunately it doesn't stop there. For everyday I use Firefox and store history history of the last day available on my history list gets deleted automatically without my permission. So I wonder is there a way to stop and prevent auto-deleting of history. Or does the history tab have a limit for how much history that can be stored. Is the limit really 1 year and approx. 3 months?

Before answering and helping me I can tell you guys that I have read a lot about this on net and even read questions related to this here on mozilla support. And I have turned off many of the obvious reasons like private browsing, auto-clear history after I close the application, etc. I mean I am pretty aware of all the usual reasons, but even so my history get deleted by itself day by day and I want to stop this.

Thanks in advance for all your help. Really appreciate it. :)

I made a Firefox account a while ago. I use Firefox in my user account as well as when I work in the Admin account. I think I have noticed before that these two Firefoxes were automatically synchronized now and then. But since I had to deal with a problem in the Admin account (continuously opening download windows) and reset Firefox there, the Hans- the user- Firefox differs from the Admin Firefox. That does not matter much in itself, but what if ever I change computer or something? Which version will be leading then, and decide on what kind of Firefox will be installed?

How do I stop Yahoo from being my search engine? When searching for 'Fred' the menu bar shows "https://search.yahoo.com/search?ei=utf-8&fr=tightropetb&type=11745&p=fred". Is the 'tightropetb anything to do with it?

Out of the blue, firefox no longer lets me right click and save images. This also includes important images into websites like Photobucket or anything that opens from my folder. It seems to be firefox only, as I can get into my files no problem and I can open these files as well.

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/255909639483293696/262027561029074944/image.png (sorry for images having Japanese text) But the first example shows of the button that has the select image button. When I press it, normally it opens one of my folders and lets me select the file, however it is not opening anything.

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/255909639483293696/262027729979834368/image.png The second image shows me trying to open something in Photoshop, which has no problem pulling up my files. This is why I think its a Firefox issue.


I would try to attach these images normally, but since its obviously not working, I used the links I had via online.

On my LAN and in Firefox I enter the IP address of my CCTV system. After I login and select a camera to view I am presented with "A plugin is needed to display this content" I have the latest Java and Adobe as far as I am aware. The CCTV system works if I connect using CMS. Have downloaded Active X which I think only relates to Internet Explorer. I am on Windows 7.

Thank you and I await the miracle fix from the experts at Mozilla Support

It started with Facebook. When I go to facebook.com I get a screen with a jumble of characters. Now it is happening with Amazon.com. All I can find from google searches is a solution if I use Kaspersky, but I do not. I use Avast. This isn't happening on my Chrome browser - it is specific to Firefox. I've tried using Avast and Malwarebytes to remove any viruses and malware, but the problem persists. What could be happening?
