I just got the beta version of firefox 28 version 1. I have tab mix plus as my tab manager. When I went to 28 it stopped opening my tabs next to the one that I am using. It now open them at the end of the line of tabs. I mean that if I have 15 tabs open, as I do now, and I am focused on the 5th tab and want something to open next to it, it will no longer do so it will open after the 15th tab. I have tab mix set to have the tabs open after the tab that I am focusing on.

I realize that most will find this unimportant, but it is a pain in the rear when you want the tab in one place and it opens in a different different place!

Firefox used to save passwords for yahoo Mail, but lately does not seem to be working. I have 2 mail accounts and passwords with Yahoo. I have read through and clicked all the things about allowing passwords to be saved but nothing is working. I do not have this problem with Explorer. If this is just something that Yahoo has done to shut out Firefox then so be it, but if there is something that can be done I would appreciate the help.

I read through other Q&A's on this, looks like a big problem all over, but many of the so-called solutions about bookmarks, etc I can't understand what to do. Many say "solved" but I do not see any solution.


remmed out my initial temporary comment

The About screen shows Beta channel and version 28, but the program launching is the old Firefox - have logo in upper left instead of button, so no option to relaunch in new format, as shown in step by step instructions. Firefox is set as my default browser, and I've restarted Windows.

No joy - any suggestions, please?

Thanks very much.

Very recently I have been getting the following message purporting to be from Firefox and it's not the way I would expect Firefox to contact me concerning updates to components - and of course I do not respond in case it leads to a dangerous site on the Net. Is this really from you or should I continue to reject the request.

'You are currently browsing the web with Firefox and it is recommended that you update your video player to the fastest version available.

If I try to load videos that are hosted on YouTube, they will not load, they will not even show a placeholder to show that anything should be there. If I go to YouTube, the site will not load with any video. All I get is a list of links to subscribed channels and my account and all that crap, nothing that looks even remotely like a video. This has occurred only since 28 beta 2 was installed.

This is my situation:

I sync my bookmarks, passwords and extensions using Firefox Sync.

When I start up Firefox, it asks me for my master password because Firefox sync wants to sync on startup and I have a master password set up.

So what happens is, I'm typing a website address, the master password dialog pops up, receives focus, and I accidentally type a part of the website address in the password dialog, which I dismiss using escape, and then I have to retype the website address.

A solution for me would be to disable automatic syncing (or at least just after startup).

Is there a way of doing this?

(I'm not scared of the about:config, but couldn't find anything there that would fix this. Alternatively, could I file this as a feature request in Bugzilla, or as a UX issue?)

I've been using FF Touch for a few days now - and love it! From I will like it even more when it's available in the Windows store so I can install it on my Surface RT. However I have a few basic user questions: 1. The only way I can find to access the Favorites and History is by launching a new tab - is there another way? 2. How can I define Home, Search prefs, etc? 3. Touch doesn't sync with the desktop version; will the production version? 4. Any idea on when this will be available in Windows 8 store? 5. Clear cache?

recently (about few months ago), i found the profile drop down menu on www.zhihu.com no longer works. i also noticed that other mouse over funtions are disabled too.

oddly, the problem only seems to appear on firefox on my laptop. other browsers on this computer(ie, chrome) or firefox on my other desktop computer works completely fine. so i don't think it's a website-related issue.

methods tried but didn't help: turning off hardware accelaeration. clear cookies. safe mode. reset firefox. migrating profiles and firefox program files from desktop computer to laptop. completely reinstall firefox.

any idea?

and sorry for my poor english expression, it is a second language and i'm not very good at it :-)

I use Firefox on three PCs and FF Sync is enabled on all of them. Two out of three PCs display the "quick dial" feature on the new tab page (6 most used pages) while the third PC only displays a blank page. Why is this not synced? Or is it supposed to be synced in the first place? (I have "Options" checked in sync options.)

I recently, setup Firefox Sync, or so I thought. I went through and completed what I thought was getting my profile stored. I wasn't aware I was given a recovery key. But apparently I had been. At the end of the day I backed it up, and when I go to the online portion of the sync, it shows I have information stored. I'm kind of a loop here.

Because for one I can't get to the manage my account option that it says to try if you've lost the recovery key, because it won't let me sync. So basically I'm confused as to how I should get my information from my profile.

To make this more clear.


Steps I took. 1. Setup firefox sync 2. Wiped computer and reinstalled firefox 3. Attempting to sign on to firefox sync -- good 4. Attempting to sync (no key) -- bad

Also if there is anyway to generate a new key without wiping all my information on sync I'd be greatly appreciative as it was years and years of bookmarks/add-ons etc.

I'm really pretty desperate right now, as my computer barely functions and now I can't even get the bare minimums to work. =(

I'm using thousands of tabs, of course with the option "don't load tabs until selected" activated so FF is supposed not to have to load really more content in memory compared if I was just opening one tab.

But my Firefox is using more than 2GB of memory just to boot up i.e. loading the list of the tabs with their little icon, a tab and the extensions. I tried to boot FF in "without modules" mode it doesn't even manage to boot. That was quite annoying but OK but now my ff is randomly CRASHING (I am probably around 3000 now) ! The memory problem is here for a lot of time but the crash is new but I believe it's more the tab number than the new version responsible for it.

I cleared cache and cookies, it doesn't solve anything.

How I'm suppose to solve this problem ? Just deleting my beloved tabs ?

I believe there's a deeper problem in the way Firefox manage "this unload until selected" option because it isn't acting as if theye were not here.

My system is otherwise quite stable except my system clock can go back in time a little bit, is it a possible reason for the crashes ? Is there an 'hardcoded' limit number of tabs opened ? Shall I post on Bugzilla where no one seems to listen to anything ? Or you just consider this a 'non normal usage' and do not even care ?

Thanks to anyone helping me and sorry for any mistake in english.

PS: FF lacks a simple way of knowing how many tabs you've got.
