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?

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 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?

On the Privacy tab in Options the check box for Accept cookies from sites is unchecked. I pressed the Exceptions button and added many websites to accept cookies from and clicked Allow for Session on each one. Sometimes I go to a website where I have to sign in with a username and password and the site states that my browser is refusing to accept cookies even though I had added the site to the exception list. When I check the exception list, the status of the exception has changed from Allow for Session to Blocked. I have found several exceptions change on their own from allow to blocked and some even have changed again after I changed them back. What could be causing the exceptions to change and is there some way to make the settings persistent?

I was thinking I might be able to put a copy the profile from my desktop on my laptop, then open it to see the browsers matched; exactly. But that wouldn't help to keep them matched.

I have sync set up but that doesn't seem to make Firefox on both machines seamless; ie look and behave exactly the same.

So while I enter my FF password fairly often, I don't appreciate what it's doing; I don't see the results of the sync in the way the two look or act.

I have been running FF 10.0.2 for a while, and was just told by a website that I needed to have FF 14 or FF 15 running. I have always had auto update turned on, but evidently, it is not working. I've now been "checking for updates" on the update channel, with no results after being connected for over 1/2 hour.

All suggestions appreciated -- I would simply download and install the latest version, if that will not eradicate my existing data.

Thoughts, please?

Many thanks
