Hi,

bp-d96dc6ad-f9a5-4fac-9482-13df01170828

Happens on YT, FB, Twitter ...

Things I have tried 1. switching from FF 32bit to 64bit 2. disabling HW acceleration 3. updating video drivers 4. safe mode (crash still happens)

Used to work fine and seems to have happened after latest update to FF. though I suspect it is not solely a result of this since I have another PC which is working fine. Since this happens on my work laptop, which is in a semi controlled configuration, the 'well ... check the differences' is not a useful approach since there are way too many of them and I do not have the luxury of going one by one, disabling/unintsalling and seeing if the problem goes away

any help is appreciated.

Since I upgraded to Windows 8 (and almost immediately installed Firefox), Firefox has not auto-updated as it is supposed to. When I see that a new version is out and I check my version, it says that there is a new version available at your site (either mozilla.org or firefox.com, I can't remember) and then I have to manually update.

Hi,

I've been using Firefox for man years, on all my devices.

But since yesterday, on my main PC, Firefox crashes constantly.

It appears to be random, on various sites, at various times (ie 10 seconds after restarting, or 10 minutes after restarting).

I have tried:

- Resetting Firefox. - Reinstalling Firefox. - Disabling/re-enabling extensions or plugins (though I don't believe I updates any since yesterday when the crashing started).

It's really annoying, and I've had to use Chrome (gulp) today. :-(

Since FF upgraded me to Firefox 23 My tool bars are messed Every time I make a new toolbar Via "Customize" > "Add New Toolbar" after I exit it does not save.

Yes I read over 10 different articles on it.

1) I deleted the localstore.rdf and started from scratch. After 15 minutes of dragging all the icons to various toolbars I close out of Customize. I then restart Only to find my toolbar not saves and icon missing (placed back into the Customize Box)

2) Only solution ALWAYS given is going to Safe Mode and resetting everything. That requires me to spend 5 hours backing all the settings and data I have saved in the various 189 items loaded.

Why so many? If not that many I would have to spend 6 hour more all day on my computer doing things that many of these addons do for me. Time is Money.

3) This is not the first time over the 8 years or so of using Firefox this has occured.

4) Question why doen't save when you close out of "Customize" than when you exit? Plus what in Firefox is messed up that it is not saving right?

I was downloading LogMeIn Hamachi. I did a custom install, removed everything I didn't want, and I thought all was good.

Until I wanted to search something.

DEFAULTED TO YAHOO. I used to type something in the URL Address bar and have it redirect me to Google search, as it should. Now it goes to yahoo. Here's an example: What it used to be like: http://i.imgur.com/Lb9vrXK.png What it is now: http://i.imgur.com/kYMa3ha.png

Can anyone help me fix this? I tried: Starting Firefox in Safe mode without addons Resetting Firefox Uninstalling it from Control Panel (couldn't find it under anywhere) Am I doing something wrong, or is Yahoo forever defaulted into Firefox?

I have installed SQLite Manager 0.8.1

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/sqlite-manager/

Go to File Explorer / Show Hidden items (so you can see App Data, next)

Put a copy of places.sqlite in C:\temp (work from a copy)

C: \ Users \ Username \ App Data \ Roaming \ Mozilla \ Firefox \ Profiles \ long string \ places.sqlite

Go to the FF drop down menu in the top left / Web Developer / SQLite Manager

. . . it opens the program in a new window

Within the program, go to:

Database / Connect Database / C:/temp/places.sqlite

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

You will see many Tables. The two pertinent ones I think are:

moz_bookmarks / Browse & Search tab

all the new bookmark Titles are in here at the bottom, even ones not in the Unsorted folder, but the URLs are not here!

the Titles appear to be added in sequential order, according to the id


moz_places / Browse & Search tab

all the new bookmark Titles, and URLs, are in here, they are not readily identifiable, you have to use Ctrl+F

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

To export the tables:

right-click on the table / Export Table /

CSV tab / [check] First row contains column names

Comma, Double quotes, Save CSV Export Settings

Ok / Save it to desktop as a CSV

Open the CSV, and then save it as an xlsx

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Question: How can I get my Title and URLs?

There are over 17,000 rows in moz_places.

I would be putting all new bookmark in Unsorted though, so the question is, how do you identify them?

This seems possible.

Alternatively, if I could add the URL column to moz_bookmarks, then I could just export that. I would work from a copy . . . but it doesn't look like SQLite Manager will let me do this.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I have also installed: SQLite Database Browser, Version 2.0b1

http://sourceforge.net/projects/sqlitebrowser/

I try to open places.sqlite with it, and nothing happens. Any idea why? Thx.

Nothing's right. I can't visit my regular spots without a popup window asking me if I approve HTML scripting. Usual hangouts like AOL don't recognize my computer, and in my mind, that's a seriously egregiously presumptuously pervasive invasion for Mozilla to make in an update, What has it done and how the hell do I undo it?

I get a message that says there is a problem loading the page. The address isn't valid

The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded.

   Web addresses are usually written like http://www.example.com/
   Make sure that you're using forward slashes (i.e. /).

This is the message I get each time I go to Tools and click on Options.

I have just noticed test pilot in the list of tools. I never loaded this. I also found that I was on beta channel which I never agreed to either. I have just loaded 23.01 release, but cannot remove test pilot. It doesn't appear in the list of addons so there are no options to delete.

How do I get rid of this unwanted addon?
