Hi, this is my problem: I have ever used firefox as primary browser so I decided to keep my bookmarks synced trough Firefox sync. The last week my hard drive just died so everithing on it has been gone for ever, fortunately my bookmarks were synced on my android device on Firefix for android, yesterday I tried to log in into sync on another pc, I had to change my password because I lost my first one, my android were disconnected but on windows nothing has been synced neither bookmark neither other items, just nothing happend, I tried on another pc again and nothing has been synced again.

now I have an Firefox account useless and all my bookmarks are on the android version disconnected from the service, how can i do to resolve it? I'm worried about connecting my android device because if it will delete my old bookmarks I can't do anything to recovery it

While listening to pandora in the background, it stop. I open up firefox to see a convincing looking web page that said I needed to update firefox. I clicked the download button and downloaded "firefox-patch". I panicked when I realized this was bogus. I have moved the downloaded file to my recycle bin but realize the harm is done. What do I need to do to fix this. I am still running windows XP on this machine and would like to continue. Please help me. Thanks!

Any remedies?

Shockwave player stopped working in Firefox 49.0.1

I just updated Adobe Flash Player to the latest version 23.0.0.185 on my Windows 10 laptop using Firefox 49.0.1. When I ran the test page from Adobe (http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/), I noticed that the new Flash Player was working, but my Shockwave Player was not. I found a newer version of Shockwave Player 12.2.5.195 and installed that. Still no go. I uninstalled Shockwave Player from Control Panel, rebooted, and reinstalled the new version of Shockwave Player. Still no go. I know this was working the last time I updated Flash Player, which was mid last month. However, it has stopped working. The list of Addons shows the new version of Shockwave for Director installed and active. I set it to always activate, but the test page still shows nothing.

I tried Shockwave in IE, and it works fine there. Does anyone have any idea why Shockwave Player would stop working? Is some plugin possibly blocking it? I do have NoScript but allowed on the Adobe Test page. I also have Adguard which is new, but I see no settings there that would affect it. Thanks.

Firefox won't keep addons installed and enabled

Every time I reboot my computer, Firefox asks me to reinstall all my add-ons. After reinstalling and enabling them everything is fine. The next time I start Firefox, most of the add-ons appear to be working, but he add-ons manager tells me I have no extensions of that type installed. That state persists until the next time it asks to reinstall the add-ons. That always happens on reboot as I said, but also sometimes after running a different program such as a full-screen game, and sometimes seemingly at random. I have tried refreshing Firefox twice but the problem persists.

I did not add or remove any add-ons before this problem started. There was a Windows 10 update just before this began, perhaps it's related? I've been running Windows 10 home for a long time without any incident of this kind.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions, thanks!

I have posted this question and have not received any real reply or solution but since firefox 47 suddenly all my logins and saved passwords disappear after I log off my username in windows. I have to reenter everything every day as if I had never saved anything. When I go to a site I get the prompt to remember password, which I accept and it saves it for that day...by the next day every saved password is gone.

WHat is going on and why can't I get a reply.

Our entire office is having the same problem. Our BlueTie accounts are not working properly and Firefox says it is a certificate problem. Most of the program is functional but not IM. We have added site exceptions in Java and in FireFox. After this we still get the message below (see attached screen shot). We have to click this box daily in order to get functioning IM service. Please research this. Hopefully you can find a fix for us.

I had previously added the Firefox theme "Framed Chuckanut Sunset" and it had worked fine for at least a year. After a crash, I lost this theme, but when I re-added it, the theme no longer appeared above the address bar like it used to, but only within that bar, with one exception: The theme appears correctly _only_ on the Customize Firefox tab. This detail is simpler to see in the attached screen shots than to describe. All shots taken during the same session.

I've already tried turning off hardware acceleration, resetting, and safe mode, to no avail.
