I have recently upgraded Firefox but never again will I set to auto update. Now I have this window that wants to remember passwords. Why upgrade me to this bullshit? I do not want any browser remembering anything. That's why I installed Firefox in the first place; to get rid of Microsoft. Do I now have to get rid of Firefox?

Useragent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:35.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/35.0

Problem: I can't get any HTML5 media to play. I have the VLC plugin installed, media plays in neither either safe mode nor regular mode. Flushed cache, hard resets, dns cache clearing, nothing has gotten them to play.

(yes, noscript is installed, only statcounter and a few other tracker sites are disabled, and media didn't play with it disabled anyways.)

Just connected to new ISP (Comcast) in FL. Firefox has been my default browser for years. Now, Firefox disappears from my dock after shutoff. Still appears in Applications. Clicking on Firefox in Applications returns it to the dock, but clicking on Firefox in the dock results in connection timeout. Same thing appears to be happening with Safari. Sending and receiving mail OK. Any help would be sincerely appreciated.

I have attached a sceen shot of the issue. This version of Firefox is 35. I have had this issue since version 32. If you will look at the screen shot and in the upper right hand corner where the min/max/x are suppose to be, They are not, so where are they? That are is solid black. Pressing CTRL and F5 together does nothing.

Consulted your FAQs; used "Customize" 1. Will not let me DELETE the hated "ebay" button at the far right of my tool bar. I HATE ebay. Do not EVER want to even see the term "ebay" for the rest of my life! How do I remove the hated "ebay" button? 2. The "Bookmarks Toolbar" is useless and cannot be modified apparently. Tried the "Customize" routine. Some of these things are so OLD and useless they are now irritating to view continually so I keep the toolbar hidden. So, your toolbar is quite useless. How do I modify the toolbar? Delete all the history? Pretty stupid if that is the case....

New 'Forward' option adds blank space then looses email

Win 8.1 with all updates. Opened my outlook.com email 12/29/2014. I forward some lengthy emails with links to exterior news articles. The first one, ( www.joemiller.us ), to forward asked if I would like to use an 'updated Forward' (Don't remember specific message) so I tried it. Everything went OK for the first few article links and then I encountered multiple pages of blanks followed by the rest of the email. I tried to get rid of the blanks to no avail so I cancelled the email Forward. I opened the SAME email from my inbox and tried to find the place to go back to the 'old' method for forwarding - no such luck. Then the email disappeared! I looked for it in the inbox, draft and deleted folders to no avail. I looked in the Sent folder - NO emails at ALL from joemiller.us - So, it looks as if my messages from joemiller.us were ALL deleted. To summarize, I would like to go back to the 'original' version of 'Forward'. Other than this, I have been VERY pleased with Firefox. My IE would give me messages about reattaching multiple times per day and Firefox only reattaches maybe once a week or less!

On my previous computer, I imported my favorites/bookmarks from Google Chrome into Firefox. I accessed them using an "Imported from Google Chrome" folder on my Firefox bookmarks bar, and this setup worked perfectly.

Now I have a new computer, and I would like to export these favorites/bookmarks (previously imported from Chrome) to my new P.C. I've tried the import/export option, copying/pasting to an external hard drive, and dragging to an E.H.D., but nothing works. Any ideas on how to transfer these imported Chrome favorites to my new P.C.?

Thanks for your help.

Hello. Recently I got a strange issue in my history sidebar on Firefox Ver. 35 beta.

Today I noticed I have a "(no title)" folder on the history sidebar when I set the sort view to date and site. I tried to delete it by clicking on delete and on forget about this site but it doesn't gets removed.

I noticed I had this entry in 4 different dates which are in today's history, in last 7 days history, in this month history and on November's history. The rest of the days/months doesn't have such entry.

I know it has to do with the places.sqlite file since I removed it (previous backup of my profile folder). Obviously the history all of it disappeared (my bookmarks and bookmarks toolbar weren't affected) and the empty history only showed the homepage I have set for Firefox to open when I run the browser.

I really don't know what triggers this behavior. Other than that everything is working normally. No crashes, no slowdowns, no nothing. Just the "(no title)" issue.

As you can see on the screenshot, that entry only has the copy, delete and forget about this site options available, the rest are grayed out, as in not available.

I thought in ask because I was unable to remove that entry. And I don't want to lose my whole history because I have a lot of sites I visit there.

Maybe adding a way for this kind of entries to be removed would be a nice solution.

Thank you in advance :)
