Hi, I have been using yahoo mail for 1x to 2x years and yahoo mail was working fine from internet explorer to firefox over 2x years 14Nov2017 but after this date I could not login yahoo mail which was already login and stayed login before 14Nov2017 in Firefox 27.0.1 Then I tried Internet Explorer 11 which has never login yahoo mail before and it worked Both Firefox 27.0.1 and Internet Explorer 11 running on the same OS Windows 8 in a notebook I have tried to delete cookies and cache; set home page to hk.yahoo.com and then close firefox delete following files which will be re-created when invoking firefox content-prefs.sqlite cookies.sqlite cookies.sqlite-shm cookies.sqlite-wal permissions.sqlite at C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\yyzlecc7.default Cache OfflineCache startupCache at C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\yyzlecc7.default open firefox hk.yahoo.com pop-up; click sign-in; enter username (without @yahoo.com.hk) password; login failed Invalid passwor please try again open Internet Explorer 11; hk.yahoo.com; click sign-in; enter username (without @yahoo.com.hk) password; login successful and can see mails; send and receive mails I am 100% sure I enter username password correctly at both Firefox and Internet Explorer my email is username@yahoo.com.hk I would rather the login failed message were firefox 27.0.1 not supported at hk.yahoo.com after 14Nov2017; if invalid paasword, why could I immediately login hk.yahoo.com with the same username password using Internet Explorer 11?

I have read many cor-el replies and found very helpful Looking forward to reply and thanks

I have Firefox on a mac osx 10.8.5 I was on the internet and a window popup I coundn't close it and it took the full screen so I force my computer to turn off (something I had done before on similar occasion without it causing any problem). When I turned it on again, my history had been wipped out and when I started using my internet again most of the website I went to didn't appear in it, even this website doesn't appear on it, my resarsh don't appear on it. I went in preferences and all the settings were normal, so there's no reason for firefox to do that. Does anyone knows the solution to this? Having lost my former history isn't that much of a problem but I would like it to work normally now. PS: I'm french so sorry for the bad english.

No matter what page I go to, the "subscribe to this page" button does not appear. Also, I put a "subscribe" button in my options toolbar, but it stays light gray (unclickable) for all pages. Have I somehow disabled this feature with some other conflicting option?

Want to get inside of FF to remove residuals from deleted apps. Used to be able to do so after entering a phrase like about:blank and then agreeing that you were on your own. After that you could search and usually remove what you were looking for.

I have forgotten how to get to that point inside FF. Can you help me with that.

Thanks, Jack

there might have been one more. Browser appears to work once these are bypassed, but I'd like to resolve them to avoid future troubles.

I was happily typing along and noticed both a typo and the fact that the typo was NOT underlined in red squiggles. Hmmmm, I thought.

Fiddling around, I discovered an option on right-click that allowed Me to turn on spellcheck. Now, every time I type in an email or forum, on Twitter, anywhere, I have to right-click to be sure of My spelling.

Thus began My efforts to find how to set the button to be on by default... Finding none led Me to "Help," which a search of the term "spellcheck default" led Me to a zero in returns. Sure, there were discussions with those terms, but I could not prowl them all looking for the method of setting spellcheck to be on by default. The first few pages yielded nothing...

So if You would please, direct Me to that function. [smile]

Thank You.

Within the past several months, Firefox has been crashing routinely. The main reason I have not switched browers is that Firefox is already customized the way I like it. However, recently, whenever Firefox crashes, if I take the option to restart, it restarts with two tabs open: 1.) the previous session recovery, as normal, and 2.) a second tab, containing a website that, once upon a time, Firefox had crashed while viewing. How do I get rid of this second tab? It is not my home page, and it is not my previous session. I can't figure out where it is coming from.

My Home Page startup session is saved in the options preferences. But it isn't returning to my personalized default. It adds tabs from last session. I thought they were supposed to disappear. They have done that for years, but not now. Have you changed it? Should I be closing each unwanted tab before ending a session?

I've been unable to download anything on my computer using Mozilla Firefox for about 2 weeks. I have deleted and reinstalled it, however the problem persists.

Cursor hangs and freezes during autosave in Gmail when composing or replying to a message

Hello!

I reinstalled Windows 7 64 Bit Ultimate on a new SSD and migrated all data to a fresh install. I installed Firefox 27.0.1, and am having a new problem that I have never encountered.

I am typing this support question in the same browser, and the typing is fast, responsive, and overall normal.

However, when I go to Gmail, and compose a message, the autosave feature seems to go crazy, and saves every minute or so which I think is normal. The not normal thing is that when it does so in FF, the cursor freezes for about 5 seconds, and I don't see any text as I type. Eventually, all the letters in the sentence will catch up (about 25 seconds later), and invariably one or more is missing.

For troubleshooting, I have tried composing messages in IE 11, as well as the latest Opera Browser, and both work fine.

I have multiple YouTube accounts, and hence I prefer to use two different browsers for YouTube, so that I am not automatically logged in and out every time I want to send an email, etc.

Has anyone else experienced this problem and/or know a solution? Again, it is consistent only with Gmail in Firefox. Gmail works fine in every other browser (I won't use Chrome), and every other function (such as typing this email post) works fine in FireFox.
