I am still having to use my old winxp, and it was running fine the other day. When I got home that night, I had lost the ability to use FF, I couldn't get a browser to come up at all, and finally had to resort to an old version of IE to get into the FF site to try to find out what happened. The msg. about 'using an older version,update now' kept popping up, although mine hadn't been that old.

I finally got a VERY old version of FF to upload, but have lost all of my bookmarks. Every time I try to update to the latest version (3 times now), the update gets about 2/3 of the way through, then stops, with an error msg. Because I am on dial-up (no choice in our rural hills), it has been extremely frustrating, with the update download taking almost 5 hours each time. None of the articles has provided the info about why the upload failed. Any ideas about the failure to update?

For the 1st time ever after not long after I renewed my Norton Internet Security Software, I wanted to open up Firefox and it would automatically start update process window which I would use task manager to stop it cause my windows xp laptop doesn't have memory to spare (This all happened in a 2 day span.)

Today, I can't open it up at all and instead every time I get a XULRunner window saying, " Error: Platform version '50.0.2' is not compatible with minVersion >= 50.0.1 maxVersion <= 50.0.1" with a Ok Button. In my control panel it states that I have FireFox 50.0.0. Also, I can't same window when I try to use FireFox Safe Mode.

After googling, I found out too many new files got mixed up with old files, so I copied my current profile folder and then uninstalled and re-installed Firefox using the Firefox Installer than has been saved in my computer. But, YouTube vids are lagging and buttons are missing and different address bar font.

Also, all my bookmarks are missing except for recent bookmarks list found under Bookmarks in toolbar and all History missing. I tried to restore my bookmarks by having Firefox access one of my dated BookmarksBackUps files, but I get a pop up window saying "incorrect file type". In my Current Profile folder file format of bookmark backups folder is .jsonlz4, but in my Old Profile Folder Copy only the first file's format is .json.

I tried out and old copy of my profile folder by deleting contents of my current profile and pasting the old copy. This brought back what I was browsing in the past and my bookmarks, but I know I'm still missing 6 months worth.

After more googling, When I went to looking for Places.sqlite corrupt file in my current profile folder and to compare with that old profile folder copy that I had, I swear the old copy only had 1 file starting with Places.sqlite . And so, I deleted from my current profile folder Places.sqlite-shm and Places.sqlite-wal file which brought back History, but none of my bookmarks. Then I noticed for the 1st time that all my current and old copy Profile folders has "Telemetry.FaliedProfileLock " Text File.

Hi,

I had to reinstall my operating system on Mac (snow leopard) and I did not export my bookmarks.

I completely wiped out the memory without having time machine operating.

So, there is no way of restoring my bookmarks in any of the standard ways. I read all of the online threads on this already and none of them is close to what I am experiencing.

Is there a way to recover my bookmarks?

Thanks,

CSS to change background color of Find bar

1. What CSS code do I need in order to change the background color of Firefox's "Find" bar?

2. Will changing the background color of the Find bar also affect the Quick Find (i.e. FAYT) bar, or does that require separate code?

I use the Status-4-Evar extension, and the following code changes its color:

  1. status4evar-status-bar {

-moz-appearance: none !important; background-color: #C8D7F1 !important; }

It works great, and so I wanted to also be able to do the same for the Find bar.

I've tried to find the ID of the Findbar so that I could insert the ID into the above CSS example, but I have been unable to locate the correct ID that I should use.

(Firefox v29)

I would like to hide placeholder text in the URL Address bar and Search bar ONLY, and nowhere else.

I found the some CSS code that works, but it hides placeholder text in ALL text boxes, not just the URL and Web Search boxes.

How should I modify the code below to restrict it so that other textboxes (such as the Quick Find / FAYT) remains unaffected?

  • |*.textbox-input::-moz-placeholder { color:transparent !important; }
  • |*.textbox-input:focus::-moz-placeholder { color:transparent !important; }

I'm guessing some IDs need to be added in place of the *|*, but I don't know the correct syntax to use.

I have a website for selling records. It has been online for 15 years and works fine. Nothing has been changed. Recently, customers have been complaining about shopping cart issues. The main complaint is: They put items in the cart and when they click on the cart to start the checkout process, the cart shows no items. The issue I have is: I put items in my shopping cart, close the browser, reopen the browser and the items are gone. I contacted my web host & they verified that the session time is set at 2 days. This does not happen with IE or Google Chrome, only firefox. The website in question is: www.fasthits.com Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Greg

I always get sites that tell me that Seamonkey is not supported. They can be sites like Yahoo mail, Epic Citidal etc. These sites reject when Seamonkey reports being Firefox compatible. Now I can understand at some level that other sites do not recognize the product, but why does Mozilla not recognize its own product?

I find it confusing that when I click on a link, the new tab for that link opens somewhere in the middle of my line of tabs. I would prefer that new tabs would appear and the end (far right) of the tab lineup. I see no way of controlling the order of tabs in Firefox. Is there a way to accomplish what I want?
