The plug-ins checker shows Reader 15.008.20082 to be out-of-date, but Adobe's plug-in checker shows that I am up-to-date. I have erased the pluginreg.dat file and it did not solve the problem. Any other suggestions or is this the plug-ins checker not taking my Firefox Mac version into account? Is Windows still the only Reader version that has actually updated?

Firefox 42 does NOT observe "Keep Me logged in" for **some** websites

Since upgrading to Firefox 42 (Mac), browser does NOT keep me logged in to Verizon webmail account even though I repeatedly click to keep me logged in. It logs me out BOTH if I quit that Firefox session and restart later --AND-- if that Firefox is left running and the webmail browser window/tab is "inactive" for a period of time then I go back to it. This behavior did NOT occur in previous version of FF. This behavior also does NOT occur under these circumstances when using Safari browser. ... I have read posts & replies by others experiencing this same or similar problem behaviors. I DID try :

 - clearing cache, 
 - deleting all Verizon cookies for possible corruptions,  
 - checking Privacy Settings,  being sure to use "Custom Settings"  &  NOT using Private Browsing (see screen shot)
 - writing exception for cookies to verizon.com &  webmail.verizon.com

... Don't know what else to do. Curious that this does NOT seem affect *most* other sites (that I've noted)

  AND that it did NOT occur with earlier version of Firefox  nor with other browsers.

I am running OSX 10.10.2

I have upgraded from FF v35.0.1 to v36.0.4 I receive a "This connection is Untrusted" message, and I am no longer able to Bypass the warning message to my router, and therefore I am unable to login to the router's management functions, using FireFox. Neither HTTP nor HTTPS connections will work. I have a Juniper SSG 140 router with an old and out of date certificate.

Firefox shows the following technical details: An error occurred during a connection to 192.168.X.Y.

Peer's Certificate issuer is not recognized. 

(Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

When I click on the "Add Exception" button, nothing happens... There is no text describing the problems of this site, and there is no button displayed to "Confirm Security Exception"

Help?

This might be a dumb question but what does firefox sync actually sync to- meaning what device is the master? Is there a master or should it make each device a combination of both preferences/tabs/menu etc? UGH! What am I missing here?

I have a desktop, laptop and iphone and would like to sync them all. So far I've created an account and the menu says they are all included in my account but nothing is syncing...

Isn't this actually supposed to make it so if I open tabs on my desktop and then have a meeting somewhere else I should be able to open firefox on my laptop and see my desktop tabs there? Isn't it supposed to sync everything? What am I missing? So far my menu bar syncs on the laptop and desktop but nothing else does.

Please help me! Thanks, SC

I recently installed Dashlane=software that automatically logs you in to all of your site, including your password. I had some issues and deleted it. After deleting Dashlane, firefox no longer automatically logs me into any site any longer. I have a MAC 10.3.3 All the setting are correct for being automatically logged in I am sure it had something to do with installing this software Is there a solution?

Thanks Barb

Hi:

Can I configure FireFox 38 to open bookmarks in the Bookmark Toolbar in a new tab, when I click the CMD key on macbook and click the bookmark link?

Currently when I click CMD and the bookmark in the bookmark toolbar (Actually an item in a folder of Bookmarks), nothing happens.

I tried to find a configuration option in about:config but it is not easy to search in there.

Thankyou
