Hi, I dealt with this problem several time and I decided to write down my solution to save of others time. In case you install firefox on Windows 7 and your htm, html files are showing blank white icon instead of little foxxy one, all you need to do to go for registry as below: - I am using Firefox v.84, ues problem is there since firefox v.2 - - Type regedit and go for "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxHTML-308046B0AF4A39CB\DefaultIcon", perhabs you see a differentt number beside FirefoxHTML or even no number - - Double click on Default key and change the value to "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe,1", not to mention without "" - Don't forget to backup whole your registry before editing it - Restart and you will probably see the Firefox icon on your saved html files

Good luck

Can anyone explain why every time I use Facebook & I go to a website that's on Facebook like an animal rescue, or say Bored Panda etc the site I visit seems to take Mozilla hostage & seizes it up not allowing it to accept my commands to do as I'm asking it to do. Such as, back out of the site I'm visiting & go back about my business. It happens every time & I have to pull up task manager in order to close out of Facebook & restart my computer & I lose any info in any other programs I may have left open etc. It's quite maddening. Thank you for any help, suggestions.

I want to change the font family or font face of the the URL bar, bookmarks and tabs. I went crazy finding out solution for this but i could not find any. I have already customized the default font of the browser but it doesn't change the font of the above mentioned areas.I tried to change in the (about:config) settings but as soon I searched for fonts then 100's of settings appeared and I was overwhelmed. Please suggest me some solutions...

I have several Extensions enabled like Badger and Weather and several more. Used to have an emblem for each one at the top right of my Firefox Home page but the Extension emblems or icons aren't there anymore. These Extensions are enabled. I can verify that. For instance I know I have the Weather Extension but without the icon to click on I can't open it. How can I put these icons back so I can use them? I looked under options on the General Page and I saw where you can drag icons from there back to the upper toolbar but the icons for my Extensions aren't there to drag back. The Extension icon is there... looks like a piece of a puzzle. I dragged that to the toolbar but when I click on it it goes to a page showing that my extensions are enabled. But I still can't open the Weather extension on that page. I know if I had the weather icon back on the upper toolbar it will show me the weather. Thanks for you help

Attempting to find some HELP period is next to impossible using this setup as you have it set. Finally found what was said to be a "SOLUTION" and it did NOT work for my setup, NO HELP at all! I also posted a possible work around for the additional issues with that one problem with the "Other Bookmaks" as it will NOT allow me to DELETE that folder. On top of this issue, every now and then that "Other Bookmarks" duplicates itself and I have had eighteen or more copies of that folder, if any one of those extra copies is removed they are all removed including the one copy that cannot be removed is "STRIPPED" of any saved bookmarks within that folder.

I recommended that anyone with this issue to create a special bookmark folder to save any bookmarks within that "Other Bookmarks" folder before removing any of the copies and save your bookmarks from that "Other Bookmarks" folder. Now I cannot find my original posting to see if there are any updates. When doing what you call a search for FIREFOX only still comes up with over 2K entries and cannot take the time to review them all. This system is a NIGHTMARE to use to find anything.

When I add a bookmark Firefox puts it in either "Other Bookmarks" or "Bookmarks Menu". Having to hunt in two places for new bookmarks is infuriating. How do I get the programmers to add an option in about:config to remove or disable "Other Bookmarks" so that new bookmarks are just added to "Bookmarks Menu" like they should in a normal world?

Trying to login to Amazon....I had saved my User & Password on Firefox. My User name is saved ok, but my Password Box is just a bunch of Dots...........................which I can't erase and therefore cannot put in my correct password to login to Amazon. I called Amazon and they said to try logging in through Google Chrome which worked fine. Therefore Amazon reports that the problem is with my Firefox Mozilla Bowser.

I need some help. Thank you, Ed R

Could someone please help me with this issue? I have been using Mozilla Firefox over 15 years on Windows and it's my default browser. I have Windows 7 professional. I never had any issues with Mozilla till I just deleted one of my YouTube accounts after discovering that I have, over the years, accidentally created too many accounts. Immediately after deleting the YouTube account, the YouTube website no longer loads on Mozilla Firefox. I keep getting the same error message that is just a blank white page with a monkey in the center holding a hammer that just says "something went wrong", with no information why it does not work. Screenshot did not want to upload to this message. However, YouTube still loads and works normally on other browsers. I was able to make changes to my other YouTube account on Google Chrome and it works without any issues. I tried restarting my PC and clicking on old YouTube links saved in my Mozilla browser history that used to work prior to deleting the YouTube account, but keep getting the same error message with a monkey. I also tried clicking on hyperlinks for YouTube videos posted on my channel, but they open on the monkey error page and don't load the YouTube website, despite the videos playing normally in YouTube on Google Chrome. I'm at my wits' end. I tried searching for help on the Mozilla discussion forums, but have not found any topic even similar to my issue. Any help that anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated. I'm a music teacher and will need to post videos to YouTube for several of my students' upcoming piano contests and this issue really has me concerned. Thank you so much for your time and help!

Sometimes, when using Firefox, if I try to cut and paste something, and I use the Right-Click context menu, the "Copy" and "Paste" options will be grayed out and will not work. It doesn't happen all the time, but it happens often enough that I think it needs to be addressed.

Say for example, I'm on Facebook, and I want to copy something from someone's status to post as a comment elsewhere. Or I'm on a webpage and want to copy and paste a word so I can do a quick search for more information. About a third of the time, the Right-Click option will not allow me to do this. The word "Copy" will appear in the context menu, but it will be grayed out and will not work.

The only way I can make it work is to go to another program (like Word) and perform a cut-and-paste operation there. Then, when I return to Firefox, it will work.
