I have had a hard time editing bookmarks.

When I select "edit this bookmark," from the menu, I get a flashing pain-light on my screen, but no way to edit the bookmark.

When I hit command-D, from the keyboard, I get a mini-menu but it is hard to put the bookmark in the right folder.

When I open the bookmarks folder, it opens in its own window, instead of another tab in the same window, and it's hard to navigate between the two windows, and I can search for the bookmarks, but I can't search for the right folders to put them in.

I have downloaded Video Download Helper from the Firefox "add-ons" tab. It also loads the hijacker "istartsurf" that then attaches itself to all other web browsing programs like IE 11 and Chrome. There is no way of uninstalling the hijacker and it is always there in the background. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox twice as well as uninstalled Chrome completely and the problem is still there. How do we get this hijacker reported to Firefox? I only used Video Download Helper because I thought it would be safe as I got it through the add-ons menu of Firefox. Not impressed. Can anyone suggest a video download add on that will work on vimeo and does NOT have malware/adware/hijacker issues?

Hi, I was wondering can Firefox history be restored? I had history from June 2014 and Firefox deleted it all last week, is there a way for all the history to be restored or not? I really hope there is, I just had some important sites in there and I always referred to them but now all the history is gone, is there a way for me to restore the browsing history from June 2014 until now? If there is, how is it done? Is there any easy and simple way to get browsing history restored? Any help will be greatly appreciated, thank you so much.

So a few days ago, I installed a software on my computer. which was obviously a Malware, sadly I was foolish and didn't notice on time and the damage was done. The name of the virus was strtpoint.exe or something like that. I removed it and all its data but sadly it kinda connected to Firefox and each time I open a new tab it redirects to the following website: "search.strtpoint.com/?v=insMac&t=1411&ap=578080078". I tried several anti-virus softwares and reinstalled Firefox, but its still there. :( I also noticed that Internet Explorer is also infected by the virus. Do you guys maybe have an idea how to get rid of it?

Thanks a lot for the Help!

I have refreshed Firefox

I have disabled all plugins and extensions then tried enabling Flash Player
I have uninstalled and reinstalled Flash player a few times
I have tried adjusting Flash player settings
    " deleting FPs cache, etc.

I have not been able to adjust FPs "hardware acceleration" because it won't open in the support pages.

I see others noting this problem beginning in March 2015, but no solutions.

Just updated to 39.0, still the problem.

No word wrap within a text posting box on a website, instead the sentence just continues scrolling horizontally.

Apparently Firefox began doing this with 36.0.1.

Was hoping it would be fixed in the newest version, but no.


A search found this post with an illustration of the problem, in case anything is unclear:

http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/help-desk-site-news-site-problems/676425-word-wrap-text-entry-boxes-not.html

How could this not have been fixed between March and July?

How do I get word wrap within a text box?

Thanks.

Hi, recently I have started receiving a message when loading some pages. Nothing has changed that I am aware of other then i updated the Adobe Shockwave Player to 12.1 after the messages started. The message doesn't always pop up on pages that it previously has and reads: "Shockwave flash may be busy or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the plugin or you can continue to see if the plugin will complete". Any guidance and help would be much appreciated.

Hey guys,

Firefox recently upgraded over to version 36.0.1 which was fine! Until I switched over to private browsing (PB).

Normally opening a new tab for me in PB would mean a page with all my pinned pages/bookmarks included; just as with normal browsing. However, now I am getting a "You're browsing privately" page which is most unhelpful. Is there anyway to switch back to getting my pinned pages? Or even a blank page? Something more helpful/less annoying.

I've been playing around with the about:config settings this morning with no luck :(

Cheers

Here is the situation. I have the advanced setting checked to warn me when a sit tries to redirect or reload a page, which is supposed to prevent it from happening. However, it isn't working. A page tried to redirect, and I saw the little banner that said Firefox prevented it, then it happened again immediately, with the same banner, and then the page went ahead and redirected, and I did NOT click to allow it. It was as though the page redirect was tried three times, stopped two, then allowed. There has to be some way to stop this entirely. To be clear, I already have it checked under Advanced/General to "Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page." It simply isn't stopping the redirect. Yes, I have antivirus protection, and yes, it works. The page that s reloading is a Sims 3 store page. It's supposed to be a video, on the store site, to watch for points. Most re just that, but today some have sown up that, instead of playing a video, it redirects to some other site. One was a health site, with no video to even view! cookies galore, though, which have now been blocked.

Any help appreciated in preventing this from happening in the future!
