I had to change my motherboard and processor the other day and immediately after that incident, I seem to have lost all of my passwords. The reason I'm certain of this is because the only password that's saved is from a site I only used after this incident. The only thing I'd done recently other than change hardware was update firefox to 35.02.

Even after restoring my key3.db to a version 4 months old, not a single difference was made. The password manager still only has that one single username and password, rather than the many I had before. Other than the change of hardware, the boot partition and drives are the same and nothing was uninstalled. Also, I'm not sure if it's related, but my logins.json file is 1KB while the logins.json.corrupt is 109KB. Were the passwords saved in there? What should I give a try?

EDIT: Solved with a post by Chris at http://codeverge.com/mozilla.support.firefox/saved-passwords-disappeared-on-update/2006894 I'm not sure how to close this ticket, so feel free to

I enjoy playing Flash based browser games but they've been running slow recently. I opened my computer's task manager to see what was going on and noticed that as I kept playing, the amount of RAM being used by Flash kept going up. All the way to 1.5 GB of RAM. I think that flash is saving pieces of game data that are not necessary. Anyone know how to make it stop doing that?

So, interesting opportunity to learn something new! ;) What is wrong: buffering. At first I thought I have problems with Flash alone, but this isn't true. Any video [be it on Youtube or Twitch, Flash player or HTML5 player, doesn't matter] randomly will stop. I will see the buffer "icon" and... nothing happens. Ever. I can leave it for as long as I want, it will not budge. On Twitch.tv it's a bit different, it will pause the stream for a solid minute and then "restart" itself.

Cleared cache, session files, updated Flash, used Ccleaner as well. Don't want to go through creating a new profile yet (a bit of a hassle), trying to figure out what might be causing the issue. As I said, it's very random, sometimes happens in short video on Youtube, sometimes I can watch long videos without much problem. And no, my internet is not the issue, double checked on that.

Any ideas?

I updated to Firefox 35.0 and after I did so, I noticed that Firefox became slow and laggy, crashing more than usual. I refreshed Firefox and noticed that it had gone back to a much older setting with most of my saved passwords missing and having to re-enter them all. Now I've noticed that all my bookmarks have disappeared too! I need to get these back :( I have a folder on my desktop called Old Firefox Data that was created yesterday when I did the Refresh. It has a sub-folder called Bookmarks within if this could work, that would be great. I've also seen this link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles - but not being very tech-savvy, it has only served to confuse me more.

Could anyone please help me by way of bullet points exactly what I need to do to restore my browser either to the setting before the Refresh yesterday (spent better part of today clicking 'Forgotten Password' on various sites!), or failing that at least reinstate all of my bookmarks.

Thank you all very much!

THIS SHOULD BE BLACKOUT.

A few weeks ago I started installing my new laptop. Got FF 35.0. Installed Adobe Flash on Windows, so no FF Flash plugin, and we were all happy bunnies.

Until FF version 35.01 came along a few days ago. Just to be clear I always have the latest Flash version as their updater keeps it current.

Now FF keeps giving me the message: "FireFox has prevented the outdated plugin Adobe Flash from running....". LOL

In my desperation I even unnecessarily got the Flash plugin. But NO JOY! The outdated message keeps returning.

What is the problem?. It clearly has to do with the latest FF 35.01 version as with the 35.0 I had NO problems.

Could someone please advise

Thanks.

How to prevent the "are you sure you want to leave this page?" prompt on Facebook?

I'm using Firefox 35.0.1. If I make a post on my Facebook timeline that contains a link, when I hit "Post" and the page goes to refresh to add my post to my timeline, it asks if I'm sure I want to leave the page. I've seen that messages on some sites before, for example, if I'm on a forum and I write a post and go to leave the page before hitting submit, it'll ask me that, but I've never seen it on Facebook until a couple of days ago.

Is there any way to turn this message off? Or even better, can it be turned off just on Facebook? Thanks.

While I am trying to log out from a gmail account on firefox , a new tab pops out informing me about problem with the cookies options. I couldn't follow the instructions in the tab, because I couldn't find anything of the suggestion in the options menu. Then I checked everything that online mozilla support suggested and nothing seems to be wrong with the cookies, they are activated. I don't know if this is connected with this problem, but the account that I am trying to log out is not mine, it belongs to a friend that has ever logged in before through my firefox until yesterday, and since then I am stuck with her account and basicly I can't even have acces to my emails. I think that's all. Thank you!!
