FireFox Sync is not an option because use of an external server is not permitted. Use of third party add-ons is not really an option. Import/export is ineffective because it doesn't put them in the exact same place in each browser.

I'd be happy to just be able to use the same favorites/bookmarks file if that is an option.

Thanks

Hi. We have a 10 computers that we have restricted as much as we can we only want then to access the default webpage.

This worked fine for a while till a maintenance function kicked in.

This is directly translated from Swedish to English sorry for any translation errors. It seams like you have not used Firefox in a while. do you want to clean/maintenance it to experience it as new? Oh, and welcome back. then to the edge there is restore Firefox button to the side.

This bypasses all the restrictions that where put on it. How do i disable that function. I've looked in the about:config page and tried some that i thought would help.

Thank you http://sv.tinypic.com/r/2jacm6v/8 or [IMG]http://i61.tinypic.com/2jacm6v.jpg/IMG [IMG]http://i62.tinypic.com/2q8vfh2.jpg/IMG or http://sv.tinypic.com/r/2q8vfh2/8

I am trying to set up a Jenkins build server that uses SeleniumHQ and Firefox ESR during integration tests.

I have installed Firefox ESR 24 and seleniumHq 2.42.2

I have found that the Firefox profile/state is getting corrupted when the selenium code exits.

This prevents the selenium FirefoxDriver from establishing a control connection because firefox is blocked on Firefox's 'last time I crashed - what do you want to do? Start fresh or attempt to recover?' screen.

What I would like to do is ensure that I always start clean with a pure factory-default Firefox configuration at the start of each run.

i.e., a "Reset to factory defaults" configuration.

This should be OK because the Jenkins account is only used for this build process.

Unfortunately, there is no documentation on how/what to blow away in order to accomplish this.

What do I need to do to accomplish this? I see that there is a ~/.cache/mozilla directory, but that doesn't seem to be the magic location that I seek... .

Hi This goes back to an archived thread that Wesley was gracious enough to answer but that I churlishly did not respond to at the time - my only excuse is that I was working on a production system migration and found a different workaround - the question is here:-

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/search?a=1&asked_by=chrise99&sortby=1&w=2

I did not get this to work. I need to use the latest Java 1.7.0_55 for Juniper VPN (archaic on Linux and I am using 32-bit Centos for this work) to pass the browser security and log me in. So I have the plugin installed in 2 places - seems to be necessary

/home/oracle/.mozilla/plugins


lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 46 Jan 15 12:39 libnpjp2.so -> /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_51/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so

/home/oracle/.mozilla/firefox/plugins


lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 46 Jan 15 12:39 libnpjp2.so -> /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_51/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so

Now when I then want to connect to an Oracle Middleware product that REQUIRES 1.7.0_25 I of course get a message plugin is missing. Wesley explained the procedure but how do I add the link for libnpjp2.so to point to /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_25/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so without clobbering the link to 1.7.0_55?

Sorry for waiting 6 months but I still have the issue and I can't avoid it any more. FF is the only option.

I also removed .mozilla/firefox/aiwbua32.default/pluginreg.dat so it can regenerate a new one. Still out of luck. When I go to Tools->Add-ons->Plugins, I just do not see java there.

Am I missing anything? Thanks

I prefer the tabs to be under the address bar on my Firefox. Previously I could simply click or unclick an option to do this, and it remained the same as I upgraded. However, I recently moved to Linux Mint 16, and it had Firefox 24 already installed. I synched my bookmarks, but was unable to locate the option to move the tabs. I actually have the roomy bookmarks toolbar, and the tabs previously sat below it. Ideally, I would like to get them there again.

The latest builds of firefox removed the top menu panel, with the entries such as "File" "Edit" "View"

This cripples me and my usage of firefox because I use it for lots of quick functionality. It makes firefox unusuable to me and seems like a clone of chrome now. But if I want this functionality, I could already use chrome, so I am unsure what's the point of copy catting chrome...

Anyway, my question is:

Is there a way to restore this functionality and show the top menu bar or have developers finally kicked me out from firefox, which I once liked a lot?

Every time I start Firefox, it checks for updates and asks if Firefox can install software on my harddrive. I say yes and it downloads the update and gives me a button to restart firefox to install the updates. But it just starts firefox and I am still at version 24.0. When I check update history, it now says 30.0 is downloaded and install is pending. I have shut down and restarted Win7 several times, hoping that will allow the install, but to no avail.

Hello, everyone!

I've filed a bug report here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1004476 The problem is that after installing Firefox 29 with no profile at all and installing any addon that requires a browser restart (NoScript for e.g.) Firefox restarts OK, but after closing it and trying to open again I get a message: "Firefox is already running". I can see in the Task Manager that there is already Firefox running in the background. I've found several people complaining about this issue. Here: http://forums.informaction.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=19612 And here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2825639

Thank you in advance

2nd Update. (Comment by a moderator)
Engineers are working on issues that have been identified.
The known issues are problems with Firefox hanging on closedown resulting in Firefox not restarting unless the hung process is killed.

Workaround ensure Firefox is NOT set to clear History on Close down
Use NewButton New Fx Menu → Preferences → |Privacy| Firefox will: [Remember History v ]

I have tried in Safe Mode, reset Firefox, uninstalled and reinstalled Java & Flash, run anti-malware & antivirus, but nothing has helped. This started with just one website (www.thechildwhisperer.com) about 6-8 months ago, but has expanded to include Humana (which I need to access frequently) and Better Homes & Gardens.

I have over 6 months of browser history, and I browse twitter a lot. I want to "Forget About" Twitter. Whenever I try to do that, Firefox just hangs, and becomes impossible to use. It's the same if I try to delete, say, everything from 6 months ago.

Deleting my browser history should NOT be a browser-breaking process. My rig is a Phenom IIx4 build, and I'm running off of an SSD. Maybe you guys have tied up all of the browser history into some complicated cache for the URL bar, I don't know. But this is pathetic. If I can delete 10GBs of crap from my HD within seconds, I should be able to delete my browser history.

Video clips in BBC news items keep coming up with "Content doesn't appear to be working. Try again later" when I try to view them in Pale Moon (Firefox by another name) but they play with no problem in SeaMonkey. A setting isn't right in Pale Moon but I don't know which one. I don't often watch clips but every now and then there is one of interest.

I haven't installed any Add-Ons or Plug-Ins over and above any that come ready installed apart, maybe, for Fox-It, my .pdf reader.

Any suggestions as to what the problem is and how to resolve it please?

So, embedded Youtube videos suddenly stopped working. I can still watch videos on the Youtube website just fine. Making an embedded video fullscreen also allows me to see it. I have seen an answer on another thread asking to try Safe Mode. Interestingly, disabling every add-on and plugin (besides Flash and Shockwave) does not fix the issue, but using Safe Mode, which theoretically does the same thing, fixes it :S

The embeds are black screen, and when I hover the mouse over them I see the Refresh and HD buttons, but not the Youtube icon on the lower right. Clicking the lower right area still brings me to the Youtube website, so the button still works, just isn't visible. Reinstalling Waterfox and using a new profile do not fix the issue.

I can't test the issue on Firefox because it has a long-standing problem of the Flash Player crashing constantly every second, which rendered it unusable and is the reason I switched to Waterfox in the first place (in which Flash does not crash).

The troubleshoot information with all Waterfox add-ons disabled (which again, doesn't fix the issue, despite Safe Mode fixing it) can be seen by navigating to the "More system details" on the menu to the right.

Thanks!

Why does their v29 change log says "added options", when the only thing most of us see are removed options, including the single most used section: the addon bar? I do not want to install an addon to see the addon bar that has been present since pre-Firefox Mozilla days. So why remove the single most used item? Did the previous pro-life CEO like it too much and the new management cannot have that?? Seems like Firefox is going backwards, not forwards.

The page on this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-set-up-firefox-sync?esab=a&s=Keep+your+Firefox+in+Sync&r=7&as=s is lame.

It does not state, let alone clarify, whether the sync is one way or two way.

In other words. Does this sync my primary firefox use, on my primary computer, with other devices, so that they see what I have done on my primary computer (what I want)

OR

Does it sync what I do on either device with the other?

OR

Can you choose which of these happens?

NOTHING of this is mentioned on the page.

AND there is no link to further information or settings.

I guess I will stick with XMarks (in which all this is clearly stated)

(To add to my disapointment here, there is no option to select to ensure being notified of responses!?)

Having posted a question about firfox sync, I am now struggling with the message interface.

When I post the question, there is no facility to follow this thread - as there ALWAYS is on EVERY forum in which I have ever participted.

However, when I have posted the question, there are menus for QUESTION TOOLS and QUESTION DETAILS. THESE ARE NOT HELPFUL.

The second item in QUESTION TOOLS is STOP EMAIL UPDATES.

?

Does this mean email updates by me, by others, or is this 'update' in fact a euphemism for being notified about a response to my question? Just in case anyone is unclear, 'email updates' is not a phrase used on ANY forum I have ever used.


The next item on this list is SUBSCRIBE TO FEED.

Does this mean a feed regarding this post? Or a general feed about questions? Or answers? Or a general feed from Mozilla about - well, who knows? The people designing this interface seem to be severely terse with their information.

1) let me know what all this means

2) rewrite the interface
