Hi everyone!

Hope someone can help. I'm going insane!

I know my userChrome.css is in the correct place, and Firefox 50 is responding to this

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* set default namespace to XUL */

/* Hide bookmark icons in the Personal Toolbar */ toolbarbutton.bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon { display: none; }

/* Don't show tab icons */ .tab-icon { display: none !important; }

but for some reason, Firefox 50 is ignoring this:

/* Hide "normal" bookmark icons in the bookmarks menu */ menuitem.bookmark-item > .menu-iconic-left { display: none; }

/* Hide icons for bookmark folders in Bookmarks menu */ menu.bookmark-item > .menu-iconic-left { display: none; }

/* Hide icons for bookmark groups in Bookmarks menu */ menuitem.bookmark-group > .menu-iconic-left { display: none; }

I have tried many times in Safe Mode, switching/creating new Profiles, Refreshing/Restarting Firefox, even using the about:config, but the Favicons still persist in the Bookmark Menu. I suspect perhaps the CSS syntax has changed for the Bookmark Menu/Favicons for Firefox 50? Why else would every command be ignored, every time? Unless I'm am missing something really obvious. I've spent days researching pages from 2005 up to more recent times, nothing newer in terms of syntax. I wouldn't feel a need for this but the Favicons in my Bookmark Menu slow it down so much its unusable. Although I know if I can successfully toggle off the Favicons, the Bookmark Menu will very quickly load as it should.

Your help is much appreciated.

Hi, I have an older version of Firefox on an older laptop. The Firefox is version 3. something (like I said old) and the laptop is windows vista home basic (again old). I want to know if there's a way to get the history and the restore session from the old one to the one I'm currently using (the most recent version on windows 7). The old one doesn't have the hardware to be able to update and add sync. So is there another way i can get the history and session from the older one to the new one? Everything I've looked at is about sync or about more recent versions or updating which isn't possible. Any ideas? Thanks in advance from the people who respond.

Several months ago, Firefox stopped saving updated passwords. For instance, I have changed my Amazon password. Every time I go to Amazon it displays my old password (I can tell by the length), and after I manually enter the new password it asks if I want to update the saved password. I click yes but each time I go back it is still the same old password that is stored. This happens on many sites, not just Amazon.

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.

I've had problems w/YahooMail for a while inasmuch as I couldn't get the full range of text colors, just the "washed out" set. Now there's even less offered (see attached #2) , like say NO COLORS! :-/ (attachment #2). Gmail's offering is similarly stinted - attachment #3.

Reinstalling Firefox has not helped, so what will?? Any ideas will be appreciated in a real and lasting manner. :-)

The other day due to the huge amount of CPU my Firefox was using I removed the software from my computer and tried to update to the latest 5.0 version. After the new installation I noticed that instead of a plugin container, there were two instances of Firefox running in task manager. After some research I thought that the issue was malware so I took the usual precautions (got antimalware software and did a complete system check only to find nothing) and eventually ended up resetting my computer. My computer is now factory reset, but when I again downloaded Firefox this instance occurred again. The two instances seem to be linked. I cannot close out of one without Firefox shutting down. The download didn't seem to work correctly as Firefox never launched upon full download and I was forced to restart my computer to get it to work at all. This does NOT occur when I use internet explorer as it shows a plugin container working with the process.

This second instance of Firefox is eating my CPU like the plugin container used to. I DO have antimalware software as well as an antivirus and neither are detecting issues on my computer. What can I do to fix this problem? I was considering reinstalling Firefox again but since it didn't download properly either time, I was wondering if there was a link to a version other than 5.0 out there that is more functional.
