I would like to change somehow some of my "Bookmarked page's little picture" in the bookmark toolbar, because some of them do not have any picture at all and since I am usually deleting the whole word description of the bookmark, it makes me quite lost when I am trying to find them in my bookmarks toolbar.

Keep up your good work :)

Thanks, Dom.

I'm having problems with just some websites. They begin to load normally but never complete. So I can often see all or part of the page, but can't interact - e.g. I can get into an e-mail program (e.g. Yahoo) and maybe open an e-mail, but I'm unable to reply to it. Or only part of the page loads and then hangs. Or sometimes none of the page loads it just hangs for a half hour showing a white screen. Other sites load fully and normally.

This has happened with Yahoo Mail, Ebay, Hotmail and some other sites.

Normally, after i write the site i want to navigate (e.g : www.yahoo.com), and press enter, the site start navigate automatically. But now, after i press enter, nothing happens. It's not even loading. My enter button is working properly. (i've tried it by writing something on notepad, and the enter button really worked). But at navigation toolbar, after i input the site i want to navigate and press enter, nothing happen. I have to click the arrow at the right side on navigation toolbar to start loading the page. Before, i don't have to do that. I only need to press enter. But now, the enter button didn't work. Anyone can help me?

This doesn't happen with any other websites. It's extremely slow to scroll, load pages, etc. and whenever I have a Facebook tab open it slows down the whole browser. The browser goes back to normal speed as soon as the Facebook tabs are closed. The worst is when I am typing a message or comment on Facebook - especially messages - it lags behind my actual typing speed so badly that I have to stop and wait for the characters to catch up to me, sometimes for several minutes just to finish a single sentence before I can move on. It's making it extremely difficult to use as a communication tool and I'm not sure what to do about it.

I ran into a curious problem trying to use Google search. Found a solution. But not certain what caused the problem.

When I tried to refine a search (modify text in their search text box) the browser would not refresh on hitting return or their search button. I had to enter the updated search in the Firefox search control (at top right).

The problem did not occur when using IE 8 or Google Chrome. And I did not have the submit problems with other web sites.

I tried re-installing Firefox while maintaining bookmarks, passwords, history, but that did not fix the problem.

However when I completely uninstalled Firefox and then performed a clean installed the Google search page worked as expected.

It is possible that I had some malware, specifically the Flash exploit, as Firefox is my primary browser. I am not certain and only guessing Figure I should pass on my experience in case others run into the same problem.

My solution was: 0. Make certain have all login/passwords for websites. 1. Export my bookmarks to the JSON file. 2. Uninstall Firefox with "Remove my Firefox personal data and customizations" checked. 3. Re-install Firefox using fresh download. 4. Import bookmarks 5. Restore Add-ons. 6. Download Flash 10.1 and install (NOTE: Checked for but no additional add-on following this install)

Then Google search pages worked as expected.

If I try to open Add-ons from the Tools menu, Firefox locks up and a script error message appears. Then it becomes "not responding" and I have to force-close Firefox and re-open.

Hello,

I've recently decided I want to delete a lot of my bookmarks. I probably have about 10.000+ of them and most are not needed at all (they come from StumbleUpon likes).

However, I cannot delete folders of bookmarks or higher numbers of selected bookmarks. Everytime I try to do that, my Firefox becomes unresponsive and my CPU usage goes to the maximum.

It doesn't delete them like this either. Numerous times I've terminated the unresponsive Firefox process and after restarting, all of the bookmarks were in place.

I can only delete smaller numbers of bookmarks (like 20-30 at a time), but considering the huge number of bookmarks I have, that would take a lot of time.

All of my StumbleUpon bookmarks are sorted in only about 10 folders or so, so I would only need to select one and delete it, if that worked.

Is there a workaround for this? Or some alternate way of deleting bookmarks, without the Bookmark Manager?

Thanks!

When I attempt to log in to things like Gmail, or any other site that requires me to enter a user name and password where I haven't opted to be signed in automatically, Firefox immediately crashes. I can restore the tabs, but only to get back to the sign in screen. This has made it impossible for me to check my email from my own computer.

I have an extensive set of bookmarks, arranged in a nested hierarchy of folders. Sometimes the bookmark I want isn't where I expect it to be. I can find it easily by using the Search facility in Organize Bookmarks, and I can then move it to where I think it should be held, but I can't find out where it has been hiding! Did I put it somewhere equally sensible? Has it been stored or moved inadvertently to the wrong place? It would be useful if, when a bookmark is highlighted in the right-hand pane of the Organize window, its current location could be shown in the left-hand pane by highlighting and expanding its containing folders hierarchy. Alternatively, perhaps the full path to the bookmark could be given in a column in the right-hand pane that could be made visible or not by the user by right-clicking the column headers in the usual way.

I have the latest version of Firefox as well as Java. On Pogo.com some games play properly while others do not. The screen just has game loading. Now if I log into Pogo.com on Firefox in the safe mode, every game works properly. Pogo says it is a Firefox problem and I tend to agree. On the same computer I also run Internet Explorer 7.057 and have no problems with it on Pogo. However I do not like using Internet Explorer. I much prefer Firefox. Any suggestions?
