Any userid used to log into Yahoo email is saved on the computer used. Next time I try to go to the yahoo mail login screen I'm taken to a page which displays all userid's that used this computer to login to yahoo mail. These userid's cannot be deleted except by clearing cache and cookies. How can I disable this saving of Yahoo userid's? I do not want someone else to use this computer and see my Yahoo userid. There are no saved passwords or login's on the computer. Thank you in advance for your help.

Why the master password window is opening when there is already one?

Everytime I start a Firefox window the first time there is a certain delay, after the the delay Firefox ask me for my master password. That's fine! But if I start Firefox and move to a website which require a password which is stored in the Firefox password manager before the end of the delay, Firefox ask me instant for the master password. The problem is, if I start to enter my master password it often happens, that at the end of the first mentioned delay and in my writing process a second window with the master password opens. Isn't it possible to deactivate the second master password window if there is already one? Would love that feature and would improve my usability experience. Thank you so much, for what you do! Richard

Connection reset on http sites but not on https

There are several sites, on what seems to be an ever growing list, on multiple computers using Firefox ranging from versions 37.0.2 to the latest version that are getting a "Connection reset". (The different versions were used as part of the tests to find if the problem was related to a specific version of Firefox)

I initially thought the problem was related solely to the http vs https access but, whilst trying to access this support site, I found that both the http and https variants returned the same error.

http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewforum.php?f=38

For example, if I go to http://www.staticice.com.au I will get a Connection reset error. If I go to https://www.staticice.com.au the site loads and works fine. The same for http://www.dvdfab.cn and https://www.dvdfab.cn.

What is even more interesting (at least to me), is that if I connect via my VPN, the http variant will load and work fine.

I've worked though the solutions described in the below post but they have not resolved the issue for me.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1056868

There is nothing in my Windows firewall that I've added. I've tried with an empty hosts file, and I've even uninstalled and reinstalled firefox.

My firefox keeps crashing. I'll just be watching a Youtube video or something like that then it will crash. It has done this about 200 times since 30/08/2014. I will submit a crash report, but nothing ever comes of it. When I reopen Firefox, a window pops up and says that Firefox is already open, then when I close that window, another one says my Firefox profile (?) is missing or something like that. Then it opens normally. As well, when I see if it needs updates, it says it's up to date, even though the Firefox website itself says it looks like I'm using an older version of Firefox. On top of that, occassionally Youtube videos will just stop working (the screen will go all fuzzy and say that an error occurred), and lately it seems as though Netflix isn't working properly either, as when I open it it says it failed to load. Once I close an reopen firefox it will work, but I'm not able to browse through all the titles. Thanks in advance for your response.

I get this message: ""Document Expired

This document is no longer available.

The requested document is not available in Firefox's cache.

   As a security precaution, Firefox does not automatically re-request sensitive documents.
   Click Try Again to re-request the document from the website.

"" So, after clicking try again 20 times to get back to the page that I could always go back to before, it gets tiresome. Is there a way to have firefox NOT protect my security quite so aggressively, so it WILL automatically re-request the socalled sensitive document? OR which version of firefox will I have to go backto to avoid this hassle? AND is there a way to KEEP that older version? And thisa is not the first time firefox is doing something which is really really annoying formy benefit

I work in libraries and internet cafes pretty often and would like to be able to pick up where i left off with the previous session. This works fine with the sync account i created for this purpose. The issue is that I like to sign out when I'm leaving. The data that was imported onto the device because of me isn't then 'poofed' into the ether. I leave the public computer with unapproved apps installed for future sessions, leave my history and my saved login details etc. Is there any way of singing out of sync and ensuring that I take with me what I brought? Or would I have to start a guest browsing session and have the sync signed in there so all the data gets deleted/gotten ridof

Thanks in advanc.e

This is the third or fourth time that a new version of Firefox has caused this add-on to work. I had to reinstall an earlier version of Firefox. I'm getting ready to try Safari since the Send-to-Kindle app is very important to me. I really wish you would check these things before sending updates. This has happened with several previous updates.
