There was a Firefox update. I installed it, but it couldn't boot with the old version running. I closed it, the update finished, and I had a beautiful new UI with all my saved websites (cookies) and passwords. Upon closing and re-opening the program, all the updates were gone, and I was prompted, again, to install the "latest" version of firefox. I jumped through all hoops again, assuming it was a hot-fix, and again the program was perfect until i restarted it. I rebooted my computer to no avail, the pattern maintained. I signed up to sync accounts on one update and proper firefox, and it worked... until i reopened the program. Ive checked permissions, and Firefox is allowed access as per necessidy with windows 10, and tried every permutation of install, reboot, and run that I could fathom, and am presently stumped. help?

When I click the star icon, it bounces to the clipboard icon, the dialog box "Page Bookmarked"comes up and I press done. If I input that url again, the star icon is a solid colour and if I click the star icon again, I get the "Edit Bookmark" dialog box. Firefox thus seems to be recording my bookmarks. However, inputting a bookmarked url does not cause autocomplete and requesting a listing of bookmarks shows an empty list, so I don't seem able to call up bookmarks.

Ever since the MAFF extension was introduced, I've downloaded literally hundreds of web pages archived in that format (I fell in love with it because the format used up so much less space than the mht format). Only problem is, I cannot open them in Windows 7 because it will not let me add Firefox to the list of available programs even after I browse to the firefox.exe after right-clicking the file and selecting "Open With" in the context menu. Is there a reg fix for this?

P.S.: I'm planning to install the Extended Support Release version of Firefox which should give me another six months of support for this extension while I come up with an alternative for archiving web pages. But for now, I desperately need to open these files because prior to switching to the Windows 7 machine I'd downloaded a boatload of maff archived pages containing instructions and tutorials I needed to ease my transition to Win 7.

Thanks,

Dandelion

Yep. So my laptop died and the HDD was unrepairable. On previous occasions when it's crashed, after reinstalling Firefox, all bookmarks and history, passwords etc came back automatically. But not this time. And there are no "restore points" existing in the backup option listed in "Show All Bookmarks". Are they out there somewhere? Cheers, Ian

Hi there, I tried downloading a file today, and it gave me no prompt to save, or any errors. It doesn't show up in the downloads tab no does it even initiate. I've tried downloading several other files, and the same thing. This doesn't usually happen, just the other day it worked fine.

I've tried downloading with both Chrome and iE, and they both work - i prefer using Firefox though.

I've followed all the troubleshooting advie I could find on the support pages, to no avail.

I disabled my anit-virus, I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. Cleared the cache and cookies. But still no downloads.

This has never happened to me before, is there something I can do to rememdy this issue?

Kind Regards Zaakir

Does Firefox have Flash in it or not? Mozilla's website, on several pages, maybe many pages, seems to say it does, but I'm running FF 56.0 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 2016.04.2 desktop amd64 (on HDD) (not the machine I'm posting this from) and Ubuntu forum people have given me advice on finding Flash in several ways and the overall result seems to be that Flash is nowhere on my hard drive. I'm trying to get rid of it. Is Flash present but under another name?

I need to re-install FF v. 47.0.2 clean. (Last v. not requiring an add-on sig.) I want to protect and re-install "Saved Logins, History and current 'Add-ons', which contains the 'Pike's Create Shortcut' in my current version mentioned." I've already exported the JASON file for bookmarks to import on the clean re-installation. I'm not quite sure how to capture the previously mentioned above add-ons in quotes. I DO NOT wish to loose the add-on in use, "Create Shortcut 0.3.6 by Pike." (It's no longer available and I fear losing it!) There is NOTHING equivalent to that add-on at Mozilla. (Sad too!) I simply can't comprehend why Mozilla will not make an add-on equivalent to "Pikes" shortcut, as a normal part of the FF browser!? The Shortcut is one very use tool for saving time. Again, sad. Any help would be seriously appreciated to get this time-consuming job done. Thanks, Mitchell1568
