At Christmas time, I downloaded a look on my toolbar offered by Firefox that was Christmas candles. I've tried over 25 times to make it go away with no luck. I'm sure this is easy...but is sure isn't obvious. Can you help? It is just where my tabs go and it was an option I saw on Firefox to customize the screen. Seemed like a great idea on a cozy Saturday before Christmas but it has become UBER annoying.

Locking as duplicate of /question/971280

I would like to know why FIREFOX doesn't act like a native mac app when it comes to the red-close button. Or maybe it does but I am not sure how to activate it.

Basically when pressing the red X it closes and loses all saved session information. Would be good to have it act like, say, Safari, where it saves the session information and just runs in the background instead of actually closing.

I have been having regular crashes on Firefox. My last submission suggested it's a problem regarding Microsoft software on my Mac, but did not specify if it's browser based or software based. Here are my latest crash reports, and I am slowly losing my patience over these recent crashes.

Every earth cam went black several weeks ago. Mind you I still use an old OS. (NO intention of upgrading it either.) So my version of firefox is 48.0.2 And I even tried with Safari though that one is so dated now I rarely use it.

I tried on two computers. One got the most recent update of flash just the other day, AND the most recent update of java. The other I rarely use and has not had those last two updates. BOTH stopped being able to view earthcam at about the same time.

I tried starting firefox in safe mode so all the adblockers and what not are off. Same issue. Even tried looking at earthcam on my cell phone and got the same black screen.

So could this be some problem with AT&T? I read that somewhere that once that person drove away from home it worked on their phone. I don't see how that would matter, if their carrier is ATT wouldn't their phone just use the nearest ATT tower? I haven't tried it yet but will soon.

One last thought, earthcam is flash based isn't it? What are they going to do when flash goes away for good by 2020?

I have my bookmarks saved as a file (.html). I know how to import bookmarks and do the sorting that firefox has. But, I want my saved bookmarks (.html) file to be sorted. Is there any way to sort my saved bookmarks? Someone mentioned bookmarklet in another post, but I haven't been able to do that, any details?

I can copy the contents of the .html file and open it in word (very easy to edit in word), but the problem is to open a link I'll have to hold the command key on my mac every time. Unless there is a way to edit the order in word than change the format from word to .html?

Basically want (1) a way to sort my bookmarks into categories and in order and (2) a way to click on a bookmark and load the page (like .html does, without holding the command key using word)

After being constantly bothered to upgrade my Firefox 25.0 to 32.0.2 I finally did it. I am running a macbookpro Mtn Lion OSX. Gradually I noticed images were often not loading on a web page. Eventually it got so bad that I could not use the browser. Luckily I decided to migrate back to Firefox 25.0 and my problem disappeared. So since this does happen why doesn't Firefox provide an easy method to stay with an older browser? No update should EVER make a browser malfunction...

This is actually a multi-faceted problem: just updated Firefox, and the tab count (count of open tabs, which used to be at the right end of the row of tabs, has disappeared.

I THINK I have Tab Mix Plus as an add-on; I also don't know how to look at my add-ons anymore. Clicking Add-Ons in the Tools menu just brings me to a web page where, apparently, I can pick add-ons and add them, but not, as far as I can see, inspect the status of the add-ons I currently have. Or did all of those disappear??? Gee.

If someone can help with this, that would be great.

Thanks! Eileen

Too many functions have been lost. I have a more up to date laptop but I'm not going to update the OS on my main desktop computer because too many other software programs would need to be updated - such as video editing and Adobe programs - which work fine as they are. Sadly my browser in future will have to be Safari or Chrome, which work fine with the current OS.

Mozilla is awesome, but FF23 has me greatly annoyed! They deleted some of the most useful Firefox features around (Looking at you Browse By Name)

Hiding the tab bar is no longer controllable, I love my screen space, but please make the tab bar vanish if I don't need it. Do I need an add-on for this now? (ugh!)

And now I can't even send feedback on Input- https://input.mozilla.org because it doesn't give me an option to register a persona account!!!

I need to give Mozilla a Tennessee talking to about this snafu. What's the email address for them?

Browser Firefox 29.0, OS X 10.8.5 I can no longer Quit Firefox and have it happen. When I try to shut down the computer, up comes a message saying I must first close Firefox. Then I use Finder>Applications>Firefox icon and then click on Apple, pick the troublesome application (Firefox 29.0) and choose Force Quit. This is rather irksome as well as cumbersome.

1] keep getting script errors trying to shop on Amazon [compatibility with my shopping extensions?] I can stop the script, but once somehow it opened multiple Amazon windows with script error messages and whole computer froze badly. Had to shut down.' 2] Pages like weather Channel, Yahoo Mail were at first blank except the background, now they load but slower than before. 3] with several or more tabs open in private windows, I start playing YouTube videos. They seem to play fine for a good while, Pausing and searching the videos, and then Firefox disappears and crashes. Thanks for any help [ I just downloaded a bunch more extensions to try later, but the vast majority of all my extensions are disabled ]
