When I add bookmark (Apple D), if it is already listed then my only option is to move it from its original folder or later go in a copy/paste a second copy. Is there a preference change around this? And/Or, can you make one for the next version?

I would like to be able to save a bookmark in two locations without moving it from one folder to another if I already have that bookmark saved in some bookmark folder. I write many papers, and love to access different materials. Sometimes I end up using the same site for different papers, and so I would like to be able to do that quickly, without having to go into the bookmarks section, and manually doing it with copy/paste. Thanks

I have a Macbook (bought in June 2011). Several times in past weeks I have been offered a Firefox update and urged to install it. However when I click OK the bar at the top of the window just goes round and round with the half white half blue sort of roll and just won't install, no matter how long I wait. ie it never changes to the solid blue line which should gradually fill up the bar. Thanks Jane

crash at start when opening bookmark: bookmark menu covers prompt for general password

Firefox asks for a general password using a drop-down window when opening a page with a log-on section, presumably for an autofill. (It's annoying and I wish I could get rid of it, but that's another story.) My home page has a log-on section, so the prompt appears. But, when I try to choose a bookmarked page, and if the prompt appears while I'm doing it, the bookmark menu covers the prompt. Nothing I do dispels the bookmark menu, whether clicking away from the menu, choosing the menu item, or even just typing the password. I have to restart, sometimes requiring 'force quit' from the Activity Monitor. I automatically clear my history when I quit. Seems obscure enought that it might be a bug...

I click download, but no icon shows up on screen to be dragged into the applications folder. An icon does appear in downloads but not the Orange Firefox icon, just the metal one. What's my problem?

after update to the latest version, the tinny pic in front the bookmarks disappeared. I think it is called the identity info... when I go to the website, they will appear on the tap, but when I go through my bookmarks, they are not there, usually they are remembered after the first visit. This bothers me...

When trying to forward and e-mail or retrieve it from "drafts" more often than not only the heading will appear and the space where the body of the e-mail belongs is empty. If I try repeatedly - going out and then back in to the e-mail - I can eventually get it and successfully send it on. If I send it while the field is blank the person receiving it will just get a blank e-mail except for the address and subject line.

This happened

A few times a week

Hi,

I've trawled through so many forums to find an answer to my problem - perhaps it's quite unique.

About a year ago my firefox address bar's autocomplete stopped working at all. I have the latest version and I've tried all the tricks around dumping the cache etc. Anyway, I got a new Mac yesterday and I opened up Firefox and everything worked as it should - great.

However, I moved all my files/settings/applications etc across from my ole mac via migration assistant and now firefox does not work properly on that user account. So, I have two user accounts on the same mac, both running the same software applications. The user account with all the old files etc is the one I want to continue to use but Firefox won't work properly on it.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled, updated the version, cleared the cache...everything I can think of.

I'm sick of Chrome crashing on me.

Can anyone help???
