I am using v 15.0.1 fire fox on my windows xp desk top. ( I am useing my tablet to help me figure out whats going on with my desktop computer) and I noticed that in the web browser window where you type your url address the icon I thought was to be perhaps a small icon of the fre fox on the home page..... Now I see it is grey or ghosted out....... the following pages that I go to sometimes has a grey or ghosted out paddle lock.... If the web site does not contain any personal information it is the grey out icon of the Fire fox or what ever it is and if I left click on it it will state that this web site does not supply idnenty information Your connection to this site is only partially encrypted, and does not prevent eaves dropping the there is a more infor tab so whatis theis all about how can I get it to be fully encripted and not have a third party eavses dropping in on me? thanks for your help

This only happens using Firefox for Android. I will be typing a password into a website log in, and partway through, the cursor will jump a space to the left, causing the incorrect pword to be put in. This is driving me crazy! And I can't seem to find much out there for support on it. I have galaxy s3 jellybean, Sprint. Also using SwiftKey. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone, I have a job that includes looking for many different words in large paragraphs. I would make things much faster for me if - instead of typing in "word 1", and then clearing it, and then typing in "word 2" - but rather, I could somehow search for a few words at once. Is there a way to do this? An add-on? Something built in? Thanks for the help.

I am using what I am guessing is a new version of sync because I am only using my email and a password to sign in in FF 29 on OS 10.9. That process sounds similar to before, but there is nowhere to enter a device code for other devices now. What am I missing here? It just acts like I would sign into another device and it would be done, similar to Chrome. I originally stopped using FF because my tabs would never sync properly across the 2 devices, but would like to come back to FF.
