I've had catastrophic crashes of Firefox with no recovery screen presented upon restart. I'd like to save all the information possible on my present set of tabs including docked/pinned tabs.

I do not want a sync account.

Simple solutions only, please.

Thanks, Chris

I have made two donations to Mozilla when asked. I am now moving to Chrome because the latest edition of Firefox does not recognise the add on extension "Visited". Like 8% of the men worldwide I am colour blind and cannot see which site I have visited except with "Visited". The latest edition of Firefox has removed this option.

What total arrogance !!!

It is also VERY difficult to contact you and make my feelings known. Wasted a lot of time before I got here!!

I did think that Mozilla was just a bit different to the "big boys" and voted with my donation. However the truth is you are just as bad.

How can you totally ignore such a large section of your clients and still not do anything.

What total arrogance !!

Goodbye and I will take my money and flase belief elsewhere

finding my way around the firefox website has gotten impossible. Just to get to the add-on's section took 15 minutes. You have made it more complicated than it's worth. However, I can no longer add any add-ons to my list of favorites nor can i add any to a collection. Yes, i have signed in and my firefox account is valid. What happened to the little red heart that i could click in the past to add any particular add-on to my personal list of favorites? Why can I no longer create collections? Where did these functions go? I am using the latest, most up to date version of Firefox...

Greetings. I run the latest Firefox on Win7/64 with only three add-ons (Flash Video Downloader, Ghostery, Skype). Of these, only Ghostery really matters to me. If there is any real evidence that any of these is causing my problem (please see below), then I'll be happy to discard it/them and prove you right.

Please forgive my detailing my environment, but I've learned the hard way that I'll be slammed if I don't. The next few paragraphs describe my context. Please bear with me.

My PC is not state-of-the-art but still hums: Dell XPS 8300 heavily modified, i7-2600@3.4GHz, 16GB RAM, Crucial 960GB SSD, WD 3TB Black user data, AMD Radeon R9 200, User Experience 7.6. Yes, I do run Win10, but only under VMware Workstation v12 Pro. Let's not go there. Thank you.

I learned years ago to relocate my Mozilla FF/TB profiles to my user data drive and back them up daily. Yes, I have recreated my FF environment more than once by creating a new FF profile - but always based upon a previous JSON file. Only FF settings and bookmarks matter to me. I can recreate settings in 10 seconds. The only real issue is bookmarks. Perhaps there is a more substantive recovery mechanism that you can suggest? Further, I manually back up bookmarks daily (both JSON and HTML). Yes, I know how to Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks > Import and Backup > {Backup...,Restore,Import Bookmarks from HTML...,Export Bookmarks to HTML...}. I use these features SEVERAL times per day. The problem, of course, is granularity: these features are "all or nothing". The issue lies below.

Over the years, I've built up over 6,000 bookmarks in ~300 top-level folders with decent distribution across lower-level folders. I have few sub-trees with more than 50 bookmarks in a leaf folder. Yes, I know something about unbalanced tree structures. FWIW, It's clear that I'm beginning to tax the FF bookmark system: about a year ago, despite all apps on SSD, launching FF and rendering the left pane of top-level bookmark folders has gone from virtually instantaneous (< 250ms) to 3-5 seconds. Perhaps a red flag?

On average, I add 25-100 bookmarks daily: mostly (in these trying days of political madness :-) somewhere in a 3-tier tree (politics > 2016 Presidential campaign > {Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, SCOTUS, whatever}... but always a dozen or so in other established folders (health, computing, photography, whatever).

So... FINALLY (don't you hate that adverb in headlines?) to my issue. I'll try to save a bookmark to some (sub-)folder... only to see that it's missing. That (sub-)folder is never the last - even (N-)penultimate - that I might have accessed that day. Today, for example, when finally I've had enough and decided to appeal to you experts, I had saved several DOZEN bookmarks in politics/computing/Tesla/whatever and then tried to save another in "health"... only to discover that it... was. not. there.

I won't try to detail the deficient recovery process that one must undertake in these situations. I guess I would be - grudgingly - willing to search back in my daily JSON/HTML backups to find that last extant instance of "health" (in this case)... but JSON files - as far as I am aware - do not appear to be easily decomposable into (folders and folders of folders of) bookmarks. Of course, I can open the full bookmarks HTML backup file in MS Word... but toward what end? Is there some simple trick - of which I am unaware - whereby I could clip an HTML segment of (folders and folders of folders of) bookmarks and re-insert it into my current Firefox bookmark structure?

So. Here is my hierarchy of needs:

1. FF bookmark manager should just work: not lose (folders of) bookmarks. Well, no doubt, of course, the crowd will slam me that it's all my fault. OK. If so, how? I am willing to learn better how to use Mozilla Firebox bookmarks. But how?

2. Failing that, how can I clip a now-missing bookmark folder (quite likely with a significant bookmark folder tree beneath) from yesterday's JSON/HTML files and re-import it to repair today's data base?

3. Failing that, what are my options? Frankly, I'm now looking at switching browsers, using Evernote/Word/Notepad/bookmarkmanagers to manage bookmarks, etc. Early research suggests greatly reduced reliability and user experience in all of those scenarios.

Thank you for your patience. I am a retired software engineer (but never at the web level) and would be happy to participate in whatever debugging/logging/alternative trial(s) that might resolve this situation. Frankly, I've reached the point where I can no longer trust Firefox!

Best regards,

  ...milo47

Adblock is the only extension I've got and it's disabled, but I have noticed that many ads which appear in IE are still not appearing in FF. Now I find some website content is also not appearing in FF (though working in IE), possibly because websites don't want you to see their content without seeing their ads - see screenshot of blank page from Inc.com. Is this a basic FF feature, or have I got a setting that's causing this problem?

An older version of Adobe Flash (ver 21.0.0.242) is causing havoc with the latest version of FireFox (ver 47.0.1). I have gone to the Adobe web site and downloaded the installer file for both Adobe Flash and Adobe Reader (also outdated). Before installing these files, I right click on the file and select Properties>Unblock to install them. I also suspend my Anti-virus software to give me enough time to install the files. However, when I attempt to install the files, the Adobe installer gives me the error of "Connection Error" and fails to install the plugins. In the past, the workaround to this problem was going to Adobe's web page " http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html" and downloading a different installation file of the same Adobe Flash version. However, Adobe has discontinued using this page to download a different installer and instead, redirects you to their download page to download the same version that doesn't work. Workaround searches on the web all tend to send you back to the Adobe Flash installer page and right back into an endless loop.

There has to be a simpler way of doing this installation process. Adobe doesn't seem to accept email support questions for their free software and other than the workaround listed above, I have not yet found any solution via internet searches. I'm having this issue on both my Windows Server and all my computers, even though Adobe is detecting the proper OS and downloading the proper file.

How can I install these plugins so that FireFox has the latest versions?

When I click on "home" button in the toolbar normally FF opens the homepage in the selected tab. But after it is running for some time the behavior changes - it starts to open a new window when the "home" button is clicked. After restart it opens homepage in the selected tab as expected.

When it opens a new window if I navigate from the home page and then click "home" button in this new window - it opens the homepage in the selected tab (as expected).

Is there a fix for this?

Hi, like I said in the title Firefox is constantly asking me to confirm addons installation over dans over. I'm currently on windows 10 and transferred my Firefox data from a mac if this helps. So I read a lot of topics about people having the same problem and here are the things I tried.

- deleting "extension.ini" and "extension.json" in the profile directory - uninstall and reinstall Firefox (including deleting the existing profile to install a "fresh" version of Firefox) - "Refreshing" Firefox twice (previous and new install). - creating a new profile with the Firefox profile manager - Disabling the Firefox checkbox in Firefox sync and installing them manually several times.

Thank you in advance

I have been using the original Firefox sync for many years. A few months ago an upgrade caused my Firefox to loose all my customisation and revert to the default layout on both my PC and laptop. I was able to restore it as I had a backup copy of my Users/roaming Firefox profile, but it only worked if I deleted the profile in C:\Users\SS\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles first. But every time I try to use sync on either PC or Laptop now, the same thing happens - it reverts to the default look and settings. I have been waiting and watching if anyone else reports the same problem and there is a fix, but I haven't seen anything. I'd like to get my sync working again the way it should. Hope you can assist.

Signing into facebook and conducting a search for a person creates results tabbed as people, posts, etc. The content is dynamically refreshed as you scroll down when you search for a particular person. Firefox 47.0.1 immediately crashes and goes to the crash reporter when you attempt to scroll down the dynamically refreshed search results. This behavior wasn't present in Firefox 47.0 or any other previous version I can recall. I've restarted Firefox in safe mode and the result is the same; Firefox 47.0.1 crashes in safe mode on facebook when you attempt to scroll down the search/feed results. So, the safe mode test tells me that the cause isn't my existing extensions.

Please, look into this as it makes Firefox nearly unusable for my desktop usage.
