Firefox has stopped inserting my password since version 23 (only on this computer). When i'm trying to sign in, it inserts my login only, without a password. "Remember passwords for sites" option is enabled. Also I can see all of my password in the "Saved Passwords" window. I have another computer with Firefox (Firefox Sync enabled, same extensions and plugins, same settings), and it works fine there.

was downloading add ons after install. KeePass would not cancel out from long form fill. I restarted the browser. Ghostry web page and disconnect appeared. Went to search for blog, about 10 min had passed, I noticed my bookmark bar was empty.

Returned to the add on menu. Only six add ons were functioning. Add to this lost it's restart icon. Everthing behind that had to be re-opened. Did that. Restarted the browser. Same dead bunched behind

Add to this. I am setting up my wife's pc. Brand new. It is a LenovoThinkCenter 92z, Windows 8 os.

Not much else. I am loving the 64 bit it runs fine on my Sony w/ Windows 7. ANd that is the way it will stay til end of life.

Hello when I minimize my firefox 25 window by clicking on the icon in the taskbar, it vanishes into a background process. this has only happened since i updated to win 8.1. with win 8.0, i did not observe this behavior. I do not find the missing window under "recently closed tabs" or in the history. I cannot access it by clicking the icon in the taskbar again. If, however, I click a bookmark of one of the tabs which are open in the vanished window, it opens again with all the tabs active. This behavior makes it nearly impossible to reasonably work with firefox. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I'm new at this. I don't understand what is meant by making Firefox my "default browser." I use gmail and I have to log in, everytime I want to use mail?

I don't even know if there is any interaction between Firefox and gmail. I just know it's a pain every time I want to use mail, I have to log in. I don't have to log in with Internet Explorer. My purpose here is to take advantage of Firefox not being infected with SPAM etc. Where and how do I set Firefox as my default browser, and what are the other advantages? Keep it simple, guys, I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

My pin tabs don't work. What's going wrong

My PINNED TABS don't work. This is what happens: Al SET 4 TABS [ie: SCU.net.au; , anz.com.au; telechoice.com.au, 131500,com,.au] {Have I set them in Tools/Internet opt… (read more)

My PINNED TABS don't work. This is what happens:

Al SET 4 TABS [ie: SCU.net.au; , anz.com.au; telechoice.com.au, 131500,com,.au] {Have I set them in Tools/Internet options in the past? Doesn't look possible in Fox. I PIN them now.} That's a credit union, a bank, my mobile account, and transportation guide. That means four handy helps under my finger tips.

 I also add Firefox

Four four years ... FOR four years, this worked admirably. That was on the old ACER, Windows 7 Pro, 64 bit.

WHAT'S DIFFERENT? Am I talking Windows 8? Are we into the Twilight Zone because I turned 63 last January? BUT ... they stopped working.

WHAT HAPPENS? The TRANSPORTATION link comes up with a STRING: 131500.com.au; ANZ.com.au; SCU.net.au;telechoice.com.au; mozilla.org.au FOX says is can't find this page. OR Transport says "Page does not exist" Which is all true.

"OK, you, I'll reset it again..." And I do and it happens again. Then I discovered this option.... get advice from the good people of Firefox at Mozilla.org

Let me know what you think. PS: To register, the Fox wouldn't let me have "ahq.mozilla" . Said it was "inappropriate". Must be Spanish for "Yahoo"? (Jesus). Why is that:

When you import bookmarks from Firefox or another browser into Firefox in a separate computer the bookmarks get imported fine, however their icons get disappeared. You have to click on every single bookmark in order to load its corresponding icon!

Note: The Google Chrome does not have this issue. The bookmark and their icons get imported to Chrome without further clicking on the imported bookmarks.

Everytime I wish to set up a Sync it goes to hell. I setup a Firefox Sync account, I select Pair a Device and I select Set up Firefox Sync on the other device. I click on I have an account and the link is dead. I check to find out if I am logged in or not. Search for Firefox sync page on google. (What is wrong with a bloody link FF/Mozilla??) All connected, try again = The same bloody result I select Pair a Device on the other (by now I just do this for kicks) and guess what, Create a New Account or I Have an Account. As I already have an account, I select I Have an Account... Dead link, Right click and I don't even get the expected menu of options on what to do with the webpage.

Have broken the camels back and would like an actual SOLUTION instead of Firefox's (probably correct if bug free and behaving) in my experience completely incorrect and unhelpful standard issue operating instructions.

any assistance (ASAP as I might be forced tp move to another more reliable browser) would be most gratefully recieved.

Firefox consistently locks up for minutes at a time when Huffington Post updates. This has been going on for at least 18 months and it does not appear there is a serious effort to address the problem. I have read though all the forum questions and replies and I do not see a serious effort on the part of Firefox to address this. It is causing significant enough problems to make using Firefox an issue. What is the problem and will be be fixed at some point?

Mozilla crashed about 15 mins into a timed online assessment for my university course which i cannot repeat. On attempting to get info on the crash, so that my university could see that i wasn't lying about the time of the crash and the website i was on, the time stamp changed to when i clicked on the link for more detailed info.

I was wondering if there was anywhere i could get the original time stamp as the time seems to have changed on my about:crashes page as well.

Urgent help would be most appreciated.

Hi! I was trying to make an online purchase & the yellow PayPal selection button wasn't visible. I called the company to make sure they accepted PayPal, (they do), & they opened their browser & made a test purchase so they could tell me where the PayPal button was. On their browser the PayPal button was there...on mine it wasn't. I closed out Firefox & restarted it, but the PayPal option button never appeared. I decided to try to make the purchase using IE & the PayPal button was right where the company told me it would be!!! Do I have to change one of my settings somehow?? I avoid IE like the plague...I even deleted the Desktop shortcut for it on my laptop...I had to do a search so I could use it to test this issue. I really don't want to have to use IE for anything!!! Help will be greatly appreciated!! Thanks very much  :) Nuts4Mutts
