Okay - for YEARS now I've used ONLY Firefox - it had the best extensions and add-ons of any other browser out there. Add to it, it was safe and very quick. So it was my default browser.

This week I logged into my DeviantArt site and odd advertisements started showing up in the lower left and right corners of the browser, unlike anything I'd ever seen before. Add to it, they were very inappropriate! So I assumed that something was wrong, and went through three, as in 3, programs to find out if I had any 'bugs' causing the problems. And of course, there was some kind of nasty bug in Firefox causing all kinds of issues.

So, following the suggestions of the fixer, plus the suggestions here, I deinstalled Firefox (21) then reinstalled the newer version, 23. At first, I thought, "Wow, that is really fast!". When I opened Firefox it didn't go to my home page, it went to the Firefox startup page, along with opening tabs for EVERY add-on and extension!

So, opened Tools, Options and reset the home page to my home page, https://www.google.com

Simple, and something I've done before. I'm a computer geek and have worked on my own additions. So, set up my home page, was working in Firefox, went to youtube to download a video and it wouldn't! So went to DLhelper, read their comments, changed one of the strings, and voila! No problems!

So I thought it was fixed and I was happy. That was last night. This morning I boot the puter and the first thing I do is open Firefox . And what happens? Oh, yes, that's right, NOTHING THAT I WOULD HAVE WANTED! It's back to the Firefox startup page, and it opens tabs for EVERY SINGLE ADD-ON!

Holy carp, getting tired now. So I research from 8 this morning until about an hour ago, so just over 5 hours I keep trying to fix it based on Firefox instructions. Go into about:config, work on the strings, change the home page info, etc. Save it. Go back to Tools, Options and there's my home page. Close Firefox and open it, and what the heck? Again, back to where it was, opening as if I just uploaded this browser. Now I've spent literally HOURS trying to fix this and I'm so frustrated that I'm just about ready to de-install it! My one complaint is that I searched all over to try and find this same problem and cannot find it. Is that true, I'm the only one with this bizarre problem???

Since FF upgraded me to Firefox 23 My tool bars are messed Every time I make a new toolbar Via "Customize" > "Add New Toolbar" after I exit it does not save.

Yes I read over 10 different articles on it.

1) I deleted the localstore.rdf and started from scratch. After 15 minutes of dragging all the icons to various toolbars I close out of Customize. I then restart Only to find my toolbar not saves and icon missing (placed back into the Customize Box)

2) Only solution ALWAYS given is going to Safe Mode and resetting everything. That requires me to spend 5 hours backing all the settings and data I have saved in the various 189 items loaded.

Why so many? If not that many I would have to spend 6 hour more all day on my computer doing things that many of these addons do for me. Time is Money.

3) This is not the first time over the 8 years or so of using Firefox this has occured.

4) Question why doen't save when you close out of "Customize" than when you exit? Plus what in Firefox is messed up that it is not saving right?

When I try to set up my desktop firefox account, I always get "WRONG RECOVERY KEY" message on sync tab. Initially I was using by backuped key but it wasn't valid. Then I cleared sync account data, deleted account, created new account. Just after finishing new account setup, every time after windows showing that sync will start soon, when I come back to sync window I ALWAYS find there "wrong recovery key" message. I've read most sync articles available none solved my problem.

I am trying to import Firefox bookmarks from a json file on another disc, and merge these with my existing bookmarks.

I only have options to import an html file. I can also use restore to bring in the file, but this will overwrite my current bookmarks, and I want to merge the two.

I have already gone into Firefox preferences, turned my popup blocker on, and removed all exceptions. However, I'm still getting a TON of popups, mostly for software updates and downloads. There is no malware on my computer and the popups do have the Firefox bookmark bar, so I know they are coming from Firefox.

Please help! It's really frustrating and slowing my computer down because they're constantly getting in the way when I'm trying to navigate.

After restart I have to disable it again. Is there a way to remember these settings permanently, without turning the entire feature off?

I'm trying to get onto a site (in this case my employers training site) and fire fox keeps telling me I can't because "<site> uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown.

(Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)"

This is not the only time I've seen fire fox do this with sites that I know for a fact are valid, but this one takes the cake because it prevents me from doing my job. Honestly I wouldn't care except it doesn't even give me the "I understand the risks" option. Why on earth will it not give me that option? It does in other cases but not in this one. Why? The most annoying part is that it won't give me any problems with OTHER parts of the same site, just the one part I need to get to do my training. I've looked online and the advice is to get the certificate (I'm not even given that option, only the option to "get me out of here") or delete the cert8.db file, which I've done to no avail.

Is there some way to force firefox to let me go to this site that I know for a fact is safe?

As an aside, I know the issue is not with the site as I've been there with chrome and explorer, but it works better with firefox usually.

Hi! I use your awesome browser as my #1 browser. Since the most recent update, however, I can not see content on Facebook that was available (and works on all other browsers).

Here is a link where you can see it working on all other broswers but not FF:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Gables-Inn/91848818163?id=91848818163&sk=app_243138959111822

It in an iFrame FYI.

I have developed over 3000 FB pages and now they only work in the other browsers. I have gotten most of my clients to instal FF so this is an even bigger issue. I am out of ideas. Please let me know if its me or what to do to make it work.

Thank you so much!!!!

This has been happening since I went from firefox 3.6 to firefox 18 when it came out to the 23.0.1 I have right now. When I go on some specific heavy websites such as yahoo news, the browser and my computer will lock up for about 10 seconds while my hard drive light is on the whole time, and the only info about:crashes gives me is a link to a page called throttling, which apparently doesnt exist anymore. It happens whether its on manual or automatic cache size and only seems to happen when its at max cache. According to about:crashes it happened only 4 times before I went from 3.6 to 18.

Ive tried turning almost all of my addons off and that didnt work, ive had harware acceleration off for a really long time so its not that. I always have all my plugins turned off except flash and it doesnt seem to have anything to do with flash. The firefox health report also counts it as a crash.

like many others I have been unable to save pod-casts, they just open and start playing. I have tried a long tap and right clicking on the link, there is no 'save' option. I have set all the MP3 options in tools to 'always ask', no luck there either (I also tried 'save'). In the about;config page I changed the media.windows-media-foundation.enabled. to 'false', it stopped the pod-cast playing but didn't help with saving or downloading it. I'm using a windows PC which I am getting increasingly tempted to hit with something large and heavy so any help or new suggestions would be much appreciated
