Firefox Refresh 'bookmark backups' folder is empty. Had to change profile.ini to profile.iniOLD to circumvent 'profile is missing or inaccessible' problem. Tried jscher2000's suggested procedure for reverting to old profile but didn't understand 'semi-randomized name' within Old Firefox Data folder, which seems to be incomplete, as stated 'bookmark backups' folder is empty and fool that i am did not manually back up my bookmarks (years of research). i thought when i ran time machine they backed up automatically. is there any way to recover bookmarks?

I use both Firefox and Chrome as my browser. Recently, Twitter has added a comment box when you Retweet a message but I only see this additional comments box when I access Twitter via Chrome. If I use Firefox I can only Retweet the original message. I have disabled all add-ons in case any of them is the cause but nothing has changed as far as Retweeting is concerned. I would like to add comments to Retweets in the final days of our election campaign, please help me stir it up.

Recently the BBC revamped its News pages. When viewed on a Desktop PC with a screen resolution forced down to the equivalent of 1366x768 the smaller fonts look sharp.

However, if I view the same page on a laptop with a screen resolution of 1366x768 the fonts are distorted and broken. I have combined two screenshots to show the problem.

On the left of the image below is a closeup of the laptop view and on the right is the same page when viewed on a desktop with the screen resolution altered to give a vertical res of 768.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/812217/Laptop_Desktop_Screenshot.png

I tried to upload an image but the hourglass just kept rotating. I have checked the font settings for both PCs are they are identical. So are the visual settings for Windows 7 on both PCs.

I tried searching to see if others have reported the problems I see but couldn't find anything. I'm baffled as to why the BBCsite would look so bad. I hope you can assist.

Thanks, Ray.

Recently in this week, when I open up Firefox, it automatically opens up a new tab and loads Bing. It originally only loads up my previous tabs, and only activates the one I was showing last time. It still does pretty much the same thing, with the one I was reading on my last visit activated, but it then opens up Bing. I didn't pay attention to it the first time, just got suspicious since I never used Bing(kinda hate M$ to begin with) so that wouldn't be my last site visited. I did checked and it is the real Bing and not a phishing site of a virus, and simply closed the tab. I started to get annoyed by the third time, so I got into about:config and deleted all the results that returned Bing. Just two of those and none seems to matter at all to my current situation. I made sure that google is my only search provider, closed the browser and restarted it, Bing didn't pop up that time so I thought I'm fine. But the next day, same thing happened again, and don't have any results in about:config with Bing. My homepage is a blank page, and my new tab page is the Firefox default one(with google and some of the sites I pinned. I have some plug-ins and add-on installed, but none are related to Bing, and I installed all of them quite long ago, so it doesn't seem to be a recent plugin that screwed me. And no, I am not stupid enough to have Bing bar installed and not noticed it.

I did a search in my about:support page, and it returned no "Bing" results, and the "Search" results returned 2, Tineye and google scholar. The only Microsoft addons I have is sharepoint and lync.

This thread on the forum, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1038882, seems to be the closest to my situation, but none of the anwsers helped. If I open another Firefox window, it goes to the Firefox start page.


Thank you in advance to anyone who tries to solve this problem.

When I either (1) click on the gmail link from Google's site or (2) type in the gmail url, I get a login screen that only asks for my user name and then allows me to click Next. On the next screen I'm asked for my password. When I enter my password, the screen refreshes but presents the same screen again, with blank fields. This isn't happening if I use Safari. Everything looks/acts right in Safari. I hardly ever use Safari, please don't make me start!

Ever since Firefox made Youtube videos only play in HTML5, no matter what quality setting I have on the video I'm watching, when I view the video on fullscreen it has low framerate. This problem does not happen with other video sites that uses Flash, like Twitch, Blip, or Dailymotion.

Is it software related to the browser or hardware related with it being HTML5?

When I was checking out Plug-ins and updating them, I was not prepared for the Adobe DC with Cloud and the other things it has to offer. The Adobe XI that I had contained my PDF files. When my Vista OS fell apart, I lost quite a few things. The only thing I do not like is that you cannot get the older version of Adobe back on the desktop unless you are an IT person, which I am not. I know it has to be on the hard drive. I have tried to download it, but it comes up this an error stating that Adobe DC is the version I want. I have a Dell Windows 7 Professional Inspiron 3847 2013. I just wish I could have my Adobe XI.

During page loading it will suddenly try to link to /clients/dragons/days and gives a NOT FOUND message.

There is not and never has been a 'days' folder! SO why is it doing this?? It also does it using Firefox if I try a local Preview. Also tried using Firefox 36.01 on a second laptop - same problem.

It does NOT happen on IE, Chrome or Opera - works fine on all those browser.

Am getting increasingingly frustrated at problems with Firefox.

Firefox crashes every few minutes. Doesn't matter if I'm watching a video on Youtube or just have a single tab open with Google on it and nothing else happening.

I've tried "safe mode" and it still does it. Here are the last few (a lot are ones I did using a Youtube video as I can get it to crash reliably there, although the last few crashes happened when I was posting this message here).

Here are the last few "About:crashes" links:

  • bp-4431a7ef-8c61-43da-8904-b07d32150427

These are just a few of them. I have a bout 50 or 60 more if you need them.

I would like Firefox to store my passwords, but I dislike that anyone can just open up the browser to find all of my data. Yes, I have a master password, but I know it's not difficult for anyone to go into the data files and decrypt the password files.

What I would like to do: 1. Relocate the key3.db and logins.json files to a flash drive. Or the entire profile if absolutely necessary 2. Change where Firefox pulls passwords from to my flashdrive 3. Ultimately it will only be able to remember my passwords if my flashdrive is plugged in

For a quick Q+A: 1. Would I need to relocate just the two files, mentioned above, or the entire profile folder? 2. What file directs Firefox to the current password location, to the AppData folder? Can I/what do I need to change this? 3. Is this at all possible?

I'm currently using Firefox 37.0.2, running on Windows 7. I'm not well versed on technical jargon, but I'm reasonably competent. Please let me know if more information is needed.

Firefox Sync on my laptop does not work when my laptop is connected to my home network, but e.g. if I'm at my office.

The internet connection at my home is fine, I can surf the web with that very Firefox on both IPv4 and IPv6, DNS etc. is also working. Logging in to accounts.firefox.com also works, as does connecting Firefox to the Sync account. Only the process of syncing itself fails. On my desktop computer at home, I have exactly the same problems. When I open https://sync-209-us-west-2.sync.services.mozilla.com/ in a browser tab, I see a confirmation message that sync runs on that server, so apparently the network path between my computer and that server is free.

Upon investigation with Wireshark, I see the successful TLS handshake, then some packets from the client that are not answered and after some time the server closes the connection (Encrypted Alert). Apparently, no content is transferred between client and server. I attach a screenshot of how Wireshark sees the conversation between server and client (The image upload here didn't work so I put it on the web: http://ibin.co/1zXABHKdj5mA).

To exclude a possible misconfiguration or bad add-on, I created a clean new Firefox profile and connected it to my Firefox account, but this shows exactly the same problems.

Fun fact: Firefox on my Android phone does sync in my home network.


Below, I will link two log files, one successful sync (office network) and one failed sync (home network): Sync @ office: http://pastebin.com/rZmfrbdL Sync @ home: http://pastebin.com/a3KUCevJ

I use autocad and sketchup all day everyday. If I'm looking at something in firefox and then move my mouse back to either of these programmes and go to zoom or pan with my mouse wheel, it causes both to zoom way out or way in too fast.

I don't think it's a mouse issue unless firefox messes with logitech setpoint. I installed chrome to see if it does the same thing and it doesn't. For this reason alone, I may stay with chrome unless there is some means of a fix for this. I'd prefer to stay with firefox as I've been using it for ages.
