With Firefox 24, sign-on ID and Password were automatically filled-in. With Firefox 26.0, this no longer happens although password memory is enabled.What to do?

I run Windows 7, with Firefox 26 (beta) loaded. Attempted to play 'Bones' video on Fox homepage, and needed Adobe Flash Player (AFP). Downloaded and ran/uninstalled AFP multiple times; each time it shows up on my hard drive, but it does not show up on my Firefox ad-ons list? If I then attempt to play a video on Fox, it alerts me that AFP is not installed? I am frustrated - I read all the posts about this issue, and either something is 'odd' and I've missed it, or I'm not understanding the corrections offered. I had no issues at all with Firefox until these last couple of updates? I have not been asked to load AFP until now - has the Fox network changed their video player requirement? I definitely remember watching videos on their webpage months ago... Would uninstalling and installing a fresh copy of Firefox help? I'm grasping at straws here... Thanks

I have a website which is made using wix, I cannot seem to use the website builder when using firefox, it works on every other browser, camino, safari, tenfourfox etc but not firefox. also the actual website matthewbirchall.co.uk isnt displayed correctly when viewing it on firefox. The text is bunched up rather than in a line, every other browser seems to show it as I made it on wix. Just concerned as several people who use firefox have mentioned this. thanks

I'm running Firefox 26 and am trying to install Flash version 11.9.900.152. I keep getting this Error: Application currently in use and it fails to complete the install.

I went to Adobe and found uninstall instructions and in the process of trying to uninstall Flash, I'm trying to delete all the files in the c:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash folder. I can get them all except: NPSWF32_11_9_900_152.dll, which produces the following error: the file is open in plugin container for Firefox

How do I get this stopped so that I can update to the latest version of Flash? This is so darned frustrating.

Almost every time I download a file from various sources, Firefox adds a padlock to the downloaded file icon. This means that the file can only be accessed by the current user unless I change back the file permissions manually. Is there any way of stop the downloads from changing their file permissions? I've only noticed this happening for a week or so, currently I'm on Firefox beta 26.0

[DATA LOSS] I closed the Tab Groups and all my tabs dissapeared. How can I recover the tabs in Firefox 26? Would you please just delete this feature?

Thank-you in advance for reading all of this.

A slip of the mouse in trying to return to the left-most tab caused the tab groups feature to take over the window. I completely failed to comprehend what I was looking at and closed the thing by clicking the x because I damn sure didn't want what I was looking at. Undo close group? Of course not, I didn't want a group in the first place. Hey! My tabs are completely gone now! So in just a few steps all of which seemed innocent, I have lost all but ten of the tabs that were open, and those were only the most recent ten (and actually older tabs would have been more valueable than newer so insult on top of injury).

I don't think increasing the number of undoable tab closures is the answer. I think getting rid of the tab groups feature all together is the best way to go. I seem to have lost all the tabs I had open, irretrievably, and some of them had been open for WEEKS so they can't be reopened from history.

The tab groups feature is a data loss bug. Please remove it from the UX completely. If you have to figure out a way to grandfather people who actually have a tab group, fine but don't further vex me with it, please.

The reason this catastrophe has occurred is that your feature, was so discoverable that I activated it by mistake, and the UI after that had to be learned on the spot, yet was too complicated to learn. You really should withdraw it until you can figure out how to keep the UI for it from causing data loss such as I have experienced this morning.

Also, there may be other questions on this feature which are from a certain point of view the same as this one. It's hard for me to tell for sure. None of them had a true resolution so that's why I posted this one, also I'm seeking a specific fix, removal of the offending feature.

Why remove the feature? Because if I allow in my discussion the possibility of retaining it, it will stick around in its present and dangerous form until your team is done bikeshedding the new form it should take. Instead I want you to delete the feature and then require its champion to convince you that a new incarnation won't cause data loss before you allow it back in.

Fellow users, if you know of a way to recover all 50 lost tabs from an "undo close tab group incident", I would be grateful for that advice, but I would still believe the feature should be deleted. Some of the tabs have been retained for months so digging them out of the history is not practical.

When I opened a page in my just updated Firefox (v26), I was redirected to another page (http://www.update-browser.org/Firefox/) which told me that my version was out-of-date and provided a link to update the program. Since Firefox is set to automatically update on its own and had just done so moments before, this struck me as suspicious and possibly a phishing attempt. Can you confirm that it is not, and that the site is a legitimate updating site.

Thanks

When being on facebook in firefox and clicking on messages or notifications icon, only a small 'window' appears with the 'loading bars', but no messages or notifications appear. This is happening for a week now. I tried to figure out the problem, so I disabled adblock plus on facebook; no result. I opened facebook in chrome and it worked fine. so I assume it's a firefox problem.

On a different note, I have the same when I try to open page insights from my fanpage on facebook. Only loading bars. For both problems I left my computer trying to load for 15 minutes, but no change.

I use Forefox 26.0 and am on the beta update channel.

Any ideas what could be wrong?

Regards,

Ron Computer: i7 920 with Windows 7-64.

It had been working properly until recently. I have tried the usual setting in firefox>preferences>applications. It accepts Preview as default, but uses Adobe anyway. If I set it to Ask, it does ask me, and when I tell it to use Preview it uses Adobe.

Desired default operation is download PDF's and open with Preview.
