hi all i'm having a problem with firefox browser, its not keeping my website logged in. This does not occur after i close my browser but after a few hours of log in, even if i leave the browser opened and come again back later.

I've been using firefox for ages now and never really had this issue. It has only starting happening only recently, since early this week or last week the most.

I've also manually cleared all cookies/log in etc and updated firefox to the latest version maybe it helps, but nothing changed.

Please note that I do not clear history/active log in etc neither it is set up to do it automatically when i close browser also i do not have any 3rd party apps that forbid cookies. I had a firefox addon before but disabled it maybe it was interfering, but it still didnt resolve the problem.

any help much appreciated as it is getting quite irritating. Thanks in advance Lee

During one of the update downloads, an annoying boxed query was added offering the option of automatically emptying the email trash folder. I do not want that option and have repeatedly clicked on either cancel or the red x. Nothing seems to work and this is very annoying.

I like to keep my inbox as clear as possible, but there have been a number of times when I've had to go back into the trash file to review a past email. I DO NOT want the auto delete function for my trash. PLEASE tell me how to get rid of the option.

I was having some issues with my bookmark button in the url/address bar working improperly, which wasn't the first time. However I've forgotten the fix I've used a few times in the past. I don't mean the button that exists in the gray border outside the bar, I mean the one that sat inside the bar next to the three dot option button. Specifically the one that would light up to indicate that a page was bookmarked and, when clicked, would show what it was saved as in your bookmarks and in which bookmark folder location.

The button was no longer allowing me to edit a bookmark I had recently saved when I had clicked on it, simply lighting up to show it had been saved. When I right clicked it, it gave an option to hide it and I clicked it in a rush thinking I could toggle it back on and now it's gone. Again, this is not the first time I've had this issue but it happens far apart enough I've forgotten how to fix it.

For now I have an extension that somewhat imitates this specific bookmark feature, whereas it will light up to indicate a page I'm viewing is currently saved to my bookmarks and I am able to quick save via clicking it, but it's a cheap imitation of the real thing. It gives me no option to edit the bookmark from there nor does it tell me in what location a currently viewed page I have bookmarked is located.

If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know. All guides, tips, and help listed on Firefox's forums, help pages, and web searches are several updates behind or years old and absolutely worthless. Please and thanks.

I have a multiple page email or document and I only want to print one single page. On the standard print dialog box there was an option to click "current page". This was fast as it only involved one single click and then hit print. After an updated a few months ago the option to print the current page is not longer highlighted and cannot be clicked. I have to chose "pages" then type in the page number then click the print button. Can the print current page radio button be engaged again in the config somewhere?

I do not want and never requested "automatic upgrades". I want them stopped and if possible the last several "upgrades" reversed. How can I get this accomplished. It's bad enough that "google" has it's fingers in everything as it is without "upgrades" I don't want and didn't ask for, and have done nothing to make things work any better. In fact it's gotten worse. If anyone knows how I can contact firefox directly it would be most appreciated.

I set the colors of visited links and unvisited links in [Options]-[General]-[Language and Appearance]-[Color].

If you want to take effect, you need to select [All] in [Use the color you selected above to overwrite the color specified on the page]

In this way, all styles of all website pages: text color and background color are all changed.

Is there a way to only change the color of the link, while the text and background colors still use the web page's own; or specify that only the domain name pages in the list list use the specified color, and the website's own default color is used for those that are not explicitly specified?

Transferred Firefox and other programs to new computer; however, my Google toolbar (especially bookmarks of concern) did not transfer. I downloaded it again (more than once); it shows up on my Tools/Addo-ons as enabled but does not show up on the View/Toolbar section (never since new computer). I uninstalled and reinstalled, but no luck. What now?
