I just upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7. I reinstalled firefox, added the speeddial that I liked so much, and then tried to use firefox. I can't type the web address into the address bar when I start firefox. I always have to open a new tab before it'll let me do it. Also, I can't highlight and copy what's typed there - AND I can't "paste and go" anymore. Is that open gone?

Until this 29 update, I was able to simply right-click in the Bookmarks menu on any Bookmark and do whatever I wanted like open it's properties to edit it or simply delete it straight from that menu. Now, suddenly, that right-click menu is all blanked out. It's only usable when you go to the Bookmark manager. Why was it necessary to forbid people from deleting and editing Bookmarks from the Bookmark menu?! Why do I have to now go through some extra steps of opening the Bookmark manager then finding the Bookmark to edit or delete it when I could have done all that straight from the menu?!

Using Windows8 Firefox EU euballot - 1.1. Trying to rename bookmarks folder "Unsorted Bookmarks"? or add a folder on that level?. I tried the suggestions in the forum (ie. ctrl shift B); accessing the folder via Library; all no luck.

When trying to add a new folder on the same level as the "Unsorted Bookmarks" folder, the new folder appears in the "Unsorted Bookmarks" folder and not on the same level.

Something I missed? Thanks for any suggestions.

I've seen several posts on this issue but since I didn't have an account I couldn't reply to the previously raised topics.

I have created the userChrome.css.txt file in the windows path C:\Users\[my login]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\fn9n71c21.default\chrome

I've pasted the below statement (contained between the quote marks) into that text file but believe there is extraneous info. I need only what should be pasted to the text file, no more, no less.

@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul);
/* The above line should appear only once in the file */

#TabsToolbar { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 99 !important }

The article Why can't I sync my passwords? linkified~J99 states that the master password inhibits the syncing, which is why the option "sync password" is greyed, if the master password is used. So to syncv the passwords one needs to turn the master password off, i.e. set to to "empty".

What speaks against the following:

  1. turn the master password off and let the sync harvest the existing passwords
  2. turn the master password on
  3. do this on all the devices of concern

Eventually, all the devices should have the passwords "more or less" synced, while still enjoying the safety provided by their master password. "More or less", because doing the above procedure consecutively for devices A,B, C ends with B having a synced set of passwords from A and B, and C the set, containing the sync pwds from A, B and C (which is then the valid set of passwords in the cloud). Given the fact we do not change passwords too often, so this should not be a big problem. One can, for instance repeat the above procedure for A at the end of the round.

Does it make sense?

All the text in my address bar is obscured by a stripe of the color the text should be. For example now I see a green stripe for the secure connection to Mozilla, gray where http://www. is, black for the domain, and gray for the rest of the URL. Clicking on the stripes reveals portions of the URL Sometimes sections are revealed on mouseover. Curiously, the only time it displays correctly is when I use the back button to access a page.

Fresh install on Xubuntu 14.04 I've tried reboot, reinstalling FF, FF safe mode and reset.

I, like many users, have only started having problems with Firefox since the onslaught of updates started. For the most part, they have either gone away with newer versions, or are minor annoyances.

MY PROBLEM: Whenever I use the middle mouse button to open a link, it now opens the link up in two separate tabs. This only started after upgrading to version 29, and didn't happen immediately (maybe a few days). I just updated to 29.0.1, which has done nothing in terms of fixing the issue.

It's not the mouse, as I can open Chrome, find a link, use the middle mouse button, and only get one tab.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

after updating to firefox 29 and then 29.0.1, the cpu usage that firefox are using are insane,

it ranges between 50%-100% cpu usage.

and it happens even on normal non flash tab,

besides even if the site is using flash, i am using flash block and adblock plus,

so anykind of flash material wont play or uses cpu.

please fix this ASAP, because firefox has now gone from useable to resource hog,

oh and i don't like the new look, because firefox has become more similar to chrome on User interface,

and i don't use chrome, because i don't like the UI, and now firefox tried to be chrome twin ?

i think that's all, thanks in advance.

I'm using Firefox 29 on Win7x64. It's my default browser. Sometimes, when I try to open a web link from Outlook email or Yahoo email, the link does not open. Instead, Firefox opens a process every time that I click, but does not open the link or even a page. If I try to open another Firefox instance by clicking the shortcut, yet another process starts, but a page does not open. Safe mode does not help. The only resolution thus far is to close every process or reboot, and then re-install Firefox. This issue began in v29 or the one just before. I also have tried suggestions posted to the forum. Thanks!

Hi From all the reading I have done, it would appear that *nobody* actually knows what the Sync function actually does.

My understanding of the term 'Sync' is that a copy is kept of something (data in this case) which can be copied from the originating device and then at a later stage copied back to the device when required. The status of the stored data may be different from the originating device and usually there would be a means of updating the stored data upon command to refresh it. This idea would keep the stored data up to date so that when needed, it can be copied back to the originating device thus 'synchronizing' the originating device to the stored data.

However, it would appear that others may have a different interpretation of the term 'Sync'.

Can anyone explain what the FF definition is?

If I create an account, set up the data options I want to sync, then FF will sync this data 'automatically' in the background - what on earth does this mean?

Example: I have a bookmark. That bookmark has been included in the data to be sync'ed. I then need to reinstall my OS and the reinstall FF and of course, log in to the sync function. Would the stored bookmark be automatically be restored to the new fresh FF install?

General Complaint


SO VERY frustrating to have to deal with changes that are completely unnecessary and unwanted!! This looks like Chrome now. If I wanted to use Chrome, I'd use Chrome!! Why does Firefox feel it is necessary to fix a working watch??

Can't Get Rid of Icon Text


Although the Toolbar Customize option is set to Icons Only (default), the text will not go away and leave me with only icons.

I had a custom toolbar (with my own selection of buttons) and it survived the upgrade to FF29, but after I installed Classic Theme Restorer, I lost it again (which had been a problem with FF28 as well, where I'd lose it suddenly on startup and had to rebuild it).

I rebuilt the toolbar after upgrading to 29 and it showed icons only at first. But I repositioned the new toolbar among the another toolbars and that's when the icon text insisted on appearing with the icons. I can't get rid of the text now.

Icon Size Too Small


The new icons are microscopic! Even when I have set the size to the largest I can find, in all settings I can find, they're at least half the size they used to be.

I installed the Classic Theme Restorer, but setting the nav icons to large only applies to the top row of icons (where the address bar is), not to added-on toolbars or manually added toolbars. Text zoom applies only to the web page being viewed, not to Firefox itself. (Also, the large nav buttons are barely visible and seriously ugly; they're not simply a larger version of the default icons.)

How can I bring back the usual size of icons from the previous version??


Thanks in advance for the help.

How can i revert back to my last version with all my tabs/windows/history restored? I will do a system restore if i have to and then cancel all automatic updates. I honestly dont care if it gives me a bigger security risk.
