I have just upgraded to Window 10 Home from Window 8.1 last night and found the Firefox 39 to be unable to connect to the internet. IE Edge and Chrome works fine. So, I install Firefox 40 beta; entering the url in the address bar or using the search box does not do anything at all. The page just remains the same. I tried to click on the links or use the search box in the default Mozilla Firefox start page and it does not do anything as well.

I have already tried to disable my antivirus and firewall and use the safe mode and it is the same. I'm not sure how can I resolve the issue.

Hi

I use the windows On screen keyboard 95% of the time. And I like to place it generally in the middle of the window when using it. When I need to type into the search box, and even though the On screen keyboard is set to Always On Top, it always goes UNDER the dropdown search suggestions list, which blocks my ability to keep typing. I then have to stop typing and move the OSK to the right or left beyond the right or left edge of the search box, or move it to the very top of the window or very bottom out of the way of the dropdown. This then highlights the text I've already typed, forcing me to click at the end of it or start over (once I've moved the OSK out of it's way). Even if I have search suggestions turned off there is still a dropdown that blocks the OSK (the position/size/length of the search box along the top and the position of the OSK are where I like them bc of my poor vision). The address bar does the same thing. I want to know if there is a way to keep the dropdown search box UNDER the OSK while I'm typing? It's a long question I apologize, but it's a bit wordy to describe. see the photo and I'm sure you'll understand what I'm talking about. The OSK is always set to "Always On Top" in Win 7 prem.

thanks for your helpful reply mark

Hi guys, I'm a desktop Firefox user for many years now and am currently using version 39 on Windows 8.

I realized on some rare occasion (10% of less of the time), the "Restore previous session" button only partially restore the Tabs and Windows from my previous session.

For example, normally I have at least 4 windows of Firefox opened (each window having 10 Tabs say for example). To rephrase it, it's basically 40 Tabs spread on 4 separate Firefox windows. Now usually when I end my session and restore it the next time, 90% of the time all 4 windows (and 40 Tabs) will comes back.

But on rare occasions, one of the window will not every come back. Meaning only 3 windows comes back. The other window with all it's Tabs will be gone.

I find it quite strange. It had happened to me before on slightly older version of Firefox and windows 7.

Even though it happened not very often but it's kind of a problem because one of the window might contain really useful Tabs.

I would appreciate if anyone with any ideas or suggestions would kindly come forward and share it with me. Thank you so much !

Hi there, I recently lost my 'recent bookmarks' and 'recent tags' from my bookmarks folder. I searched help on the forums and followed the advice to restore the smart bookmarks folder (going to about:config, double-clicking on the smartbookmarks link, setting the value to 0 and re-starting) and whilst this brought back the 'most visited' tag to the toolbar (which I was happy not to have) and the 'recent tags' to my bookmark menu (which again, I don't really want), it hasn't brought back 'recent bookmarks', which is the one I actually want!

If anyone can help, I'd be grateful.

Many thanks,

I got one of those pop ups, your FF is loading slow, so I said ok, then kicked me into updating sync... I had trouble logging in change my PW twice, and it worked once then not again. Soooo, questions are: 1) are firefox account and sync account the same? 2) do they have different pws? 3) do I log out of them separately or together?

4) how do I tell if I am in new Sync or old. [first time I tried there was no "disconnect" on my sync page]

Once I get accounts and PWs straightened out, I'll be back with more questions.

Sorry to be critical, but I think many of the faq and help pages are close to worthless. They are carrying too many assumptions about what you already know if you ask a question. One solution, ANYTHING mentioned [e.g. sync, account, logon, usename, etc] should have a <learn more> link.

thanks look forward to answer[s] tom

Just recently I started having a problem (in the last week or so). I set my default Amazon kindle device. I buy a Kindle book. The default kindle device is reset (none of the devices are the default one). I have cleared cache and history. No affect. Tried this on another PC and got the same error. Tried it in IE and no error - default device remained set. So there is something in maybe the latest version of FF that is causing that default device setting to be lost? (I have not been able to determine exactly where the default Kindle device setting is kept, but it seems to be in the browser since FF does not work and IE does work on my PC).
