I always run Firefox in private browsing mode. Normally I don't accept cookies, but turn on the 'Accept cookies from sites' when necessary. Until recently when I've selected 'Accept cookies from sites', cookies have shown up in the 'cookies list'. Now they don't. As far as I can tell, I'm not doing anything differently. Resetting Firefox makes no difference.

Hello: My hair is hurting.

This week, my Mac (OSX Lion) 's Foirefox 31.0 just stopped selecting items from all visited sites with drop down menus.

Other browsers (Safari, Chrome) work fine.

I've emptied the cache. No luck.

One solution I read was to Reset Firefox which I started to do from the directions offered but I was afraid that after saving a copy of my Profile folder, I would not know what I was going to lose and how or if those lost themes and extensions and other items could be restored from the saved copy. also, no hint about how (or when) to restore the copied Profile folder.

I'm not even sure the "restoire" is the proper solution to the problem.

Any detailed help would be a big help. (I'm not a tech person so I close to being dumb as a fencepost with complicated fixes.

Many thanks

Hoped to upgrade Firefox, my favorite internet browser for years, but my 2009 Mac Pro won't take Apple's OS X beyond 10.7.5, and Firefox doesn't allow me to upgrade after v48.2. I came across the ESR version 45.9, downloaded it, and now don't know which version I should actually use - 48.2 or the ESR version. Halp! Thanks.

I get a "Your connection is not secure" error when trying to log in to my modem's login page at the local address. I have a Cisco DPQ3925 and using Firefox 47.0, Mac OS 10.7.5

Here is the rest of the error text:

"The owner of 192.168.0.1 has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website."

I've just replaced the modem (same brand and model) because I was getting the same error.

The following error comes up when I try to install the updated Firefox: "The operation can’t be completed because some items had to be skipped. For each item, choose File > Get Info, make sure “Locked” is deselected, and then check the Sharing & Permissions section. When you are sure the items are unlocked and not designated as Read Only or No Access, try again."

When I follow the instructions in the error message, it shows that my user name has read and write access. There are a couple other items that are read only. I tried to change this to read and write, but the Sharing and Permissions options are greyed out and will not let me change them. What is the work around for this? I would really like to install the new firefox.

Thanks.

As Mac user, I've always shunned Sarfari in favor of Firefox mainly because I don't have to download webm files in order to watch them. All of a sudden, now you do. Is there something I have to reset, or have you turned it into a option like you did with the Add-on bar?

Before I shut down my computer, I quit all my open applications. This makes startup cleaner. But now, upon startup, Firefox 23 automatically opens...not Safari, not Mail, just new Firefox 23. This would seem to be the new default. Can I stop this behavior?

I have a mac and I really don’t want to buy a new one. Its a Mac OS X version 10.7.5 How do I upgrade it for free to Mac 10.11 so its stays safe.

As we are talking about safety her.

How good is the IPhone to use while doing Internet banking. I am using safari then- but would Firefox be safer. Is it safe to use Firefox now to check Internet banking?

And why is there no spelling check on Firefox most of the time!!!!

My issue began yesterday and I can't seem to correct the problem. Every time I open firefox i'm met with the annoying restore message, (it's not usually annoying but because it happens every time I start firefox it's really starting to bother me) even if I close all my tabs before hand, close firefox and then quit the program entirely. I can understand this happening if say, I force quit when I had tabs open, but I'm not. And that too, was never an issue before.

I'm using Firefox 20.0 on my Mac, running 10.7.5 (Lion).

I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling firefox. I also deleted the sessionstore.bak and .js files. This fix worked initially, the first time I opened firefox, but hasn't worked subsequently.

Moreover, I'd rather not completely turn off the restore, if possible, because I may actually need to recover my data at some point.

I have three extensions on my browser: greasemonkey, tumblr savior and Adblock plus. I've had ABP on my browser since I bought my computer 2 years ago. Tumblr savior and greasemonkey I downloaded last night after this issue was already occuring.
