I want to save all of my Bookmarks to a portable storage device.

From Mozilli I got some info., but there is still some confusion. To start:I am told to click the "Bookmarks" button on the right side of the navigation tool bar. There is no "Bookmarks" button on my tool bar.
I have FF 15.0.1 and Win XP Home SP 3.
Please advise.

This message recently started appearing when I select fullscreen in Facebook and Flickr. It is large and very annoying. It does not appear when I use Safari so I suspect it is generated by Firefox. How do I turn this "feature" off? I am currently using Firefox 15.01

Hi,

We are about to enable SSO in our environment. As a result, I need to modify the value for user_pref("network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris", "my domain");>>prefs.js.

I created a simple .bat file to make the necessary mod and add the line to pref.js. When I run the file it outputs the prefs.js to the same location, not the Mozilla AppData folder. We are a Win7 environment with folder redirection enabled. Therefore, our user's Mozilla AppData folder is located at \\my domain\dfs\XenDesktop\Profiles\username\AppData\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\default (random default profile name). My question is what is the best course of action to add this pref. to all PC user's pref.js file? keep in mind the pref.js is located on the hidden network path I included above. I apologize if my question is not easy to understand.

When I transfer over my favorites from Internet Explorer, not all of the favorites transfer over. Is there a limit on the number that can be moved over to Firefox? I see all my favorites in the My Favorites file, and on favorites when I open IE, but only half of them transfer over. Is there a cause for this? It is the same on both my machines using Vista and 7.

I have a lot of duplicate bookmarks in Firefox and the number keeps on adding on. There are few answers regarding this on Support pages but none of them work. Neither the add-ons mentioned there(sad such trivial and basic things need add-ons) .

As there's no good way to sync Chrome and Firefox bookmarks I often end up manually importing in either browser from the other and after that I end up having tones of duplicates. I can deal with this in Chrome but have not figured out how to do this in Firefox. I think Sync ought to handle this.

Anyway, any quick solution regarding this? Preferably without an add-on (sigh!! one more thing to slow down the browser).

This Connection is Untrusted

         You have asked Firefox to connect

securely to www.mozilla.org, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

         Normally, when you try to connect securely,

sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

This happens for every site I go to http https edu/com/net/org. I add exceptions and I can get around on a site for a few hour, then I have to re-add exceptions even for mozilla.org

I recently installed Adobe Flash Player 11 ActiveX--11.4.402.265 and when I open My Mozilla Firefox browser I keep getting this message flashing on my screen: 'Adobe Flash Player 11.4 r402 has stopped working" and then "Windows is checking for a solution"

This flashes a few times then usually stops but not always.

It happens every time I try to open a new page.

I fixed this problem by uninstalling Adobe Flash Player 11 and installing Adobe Flash Player 10.3. However, now my IE browser wants me to install Adobe Flash Player 11 again. Although I don't use my IE browser frequently, I DO have to use it sometimes. Will there be an update to Firefox 15.0 to correct this issue?

I restarted my computer this morning, as it was running a bit slugglish. The restart initiated both a Firefox update and a Flash update to the latest versions. I've uninstalled Flash several times with the Flash uninstaller. I've even down-graded to 10.3. Same result. Firefox simply isn't recognizing the install and I'm unable to view any Flash content. On any page that requires it, the 'Install Missing Plugin' button appears. Whether it's 10.3 or the latest 11.4, it doesn't exist in the Add-ons manager. I've installed the latest real Player as well, in case it had something to do with the issue. No apparent connection. No issues with the installations themselves have been experienced - everything proceeds as expected.

Any ideas?

First of all, the website in question(thepiratebay.se) works normal on IE with no issue. On Firefox however, attempts to click on 'ANYTHING' on this sites' webpage results in no effect. This includes the text/search box where the text indicator does not show up or any of the link on the page will not work. When mousing over the hyperlinks or objects on the page, the cursor does not change to a 'finger' and a small box area around the pointer jitters/pull the texts or graphics within it like a 0x magnifying glass that ran over the texts. Right-clicking anywhere on the page(text, blank or graphics) yield a flash applet menu with the first line(greyed out) indicating 'movie not loaded' and the second line 'About adobe flash player v11.4.402.256...'. These symptoms extends to all sub-pages of the site after skipping to them using Google search. This issue ONLY affects 'thepiratebay.se' thus far to my knowledge. I'm using Firefox v15.0 and recently updated the Flash plugin to the latest version before Firefox request and updated to 15.0. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Shockwave Flash browser plugin as well as clearing all cache/history/form/etc.. to no avail...
