I am using FF 31.0 on Windows 7 Professional 32-bit. I have a number of FF windows open, one for each project on which I am working. There are some tabs in wndows that I do not want any more. So I either close those tabs or go to other URLs in those tabs. I then cleanly exit FF. But when FF is restarted, the tabs that I had closed or changed URLs re-appear, as if I had done nothing to delete or change them. I assumed that FF, when it exited cleanly, would save all of my current windows and tabs settings, and when I "restored my previous session", I would get the same windows and tabs that I had when I cleanly shutdown. But this is not the case. How do I tell FF to save my current window and tab settings? Thanks.

At my work, I have Firefox 31.

I have a page. I want to inspect an element. No way.

There is no more inspector in Firefox 31?! Can I inspect an element? How?

By the way, "View source" has disappeared too in Firefox 31. This does not help.

Does Mozilla plan to remove all the useful features from Firefox?

Thank you.

I'm getting a new (Windows 8.1) computer. I want to be able to use Firefox and Thunderbird just as I left them on the old (Windows 7) computer. Is this the right way to do it:

1. Backup both (to a removable disk) on the old computer with Mozbackup. 2. Download and install both on the new computer. Download and install Mozbackup of the new computer. 3. Restore from the removable disk using Mozbackup on the new computer.

Is this the right idea?

Last sunday (aug-17) appears a program call Baidu in my PC. Baidu says it can clean all adwares and malwares from my laptop for free. I accept and it did, erase all addware and malware and my laptop became faster. However It takes full control of my laptop and my email. Baidu adds apears everytime everywhere. I was reading how to clean it and I have done all the recipes I have found (1 of them erase startup register and have to rehabilite my lap with my windows CD). After 2 or 3 hours baidu reappears and it is allocated in Mozilla registers. I do not know what to do. For the moment I must quit using mozilla and start using Opera. Later I am thinking to move to Android PC or Linux PC. Any idea or solution will be appreciated. Ivan Castilla

I'm trying to figure out why Firefox has no spellcheck. I suspect it needs dictionaries installed, but it's a bit of a mystery. I had to reste FF as it kept crashing after I updated to V31.0

When I'm on my blogger dashboard, in the last couple of weeks an "about:blank" page has been appearing whenever I move from page to page. It only happens on Blogger and not when I'm surfing the web elsewhere.

Though I prefer Firefox, when I use Internet Explorer 10, I don't have this problem.

I tried resetting Firefox, as recommended, but about:blank is still appearing - it's very creepy.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer or if you can let me know if other people have encountered this.

I saw this thread:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/978186

but it doesn't help. mp3 attachments to gmail messages will not play in Firefox 31 for Win7 x64. I have tried clearing cache, cookies, making new profile, installing ancient WMP plugin. Nothing works. I get the "dark player" in gmail (Gmail preview) but I hear no sound, the progress bar does not move, and I get no gmail error.

Other mp3 files play fine in Firefox, just not in gmail or Google Drive. The mp3 attachments play fine in gmail using IE11 and Chrome.

Has Google disabled mp3 play in Firefox, or is something messed up with my Firefox installation?

Thank you....  :-)

Is there an easy way to see if an addon/extension is calling home? and if so edit said extension to not do so.

In other words, I want to make sure extension xxx does not send any information/makes an internet connection.

What i'm doing right now: 1. Download/install addon XXX 2. extract content of the. xpi file. 3. uses "find in file" with keywords like "url" or "http" and removes what i don´t like. 4. saves as new .xpi and then install this one instead.

Is there a better way to tackle this? If not, is there any better "keywords" to search for to make sure i find all lines of code that are used to connect to the outside/call home?

I don't want to be tracked by any commercial entity. I do not want content customized to what is perceived to be my needs based upon my history.

I am using this browser from many years, but this time I have the worst experience with firefox. When I open a page it show the Pop Up block indicator at the top, that is a good thing, but now even it shows that option and still opening many windows at the back. There are so many windows that opens automatically. There are 12 or 13 windows that opens at the same time, then I have to close that windows which is now becoming pain for me. Not even that there are so many new tabs that open automatically while I am working or searching any thing on the firefox. I am using this browser for many years and I hope in your next update you will resolve this issue. Else I have to go with any other browser and have to stop refer this browser to others and those users using this browser may have to ask them to go with any other browser. But believe me I reaaaalllly do not want to go with any other option, as I like this browser. So, please fix this issue in your next update.

I've seen this bug reported a few times already, but none of them seem to have resolved the issue (at least for me).

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad T510 currently running two operating systems on separate partitions (Windows 7 and Fedora 20). Firefox is my default browser in both operating systems and both are up to date. Both browsers are using the same plugins and extensions as well (which is essentially nothing because I just performed a clean install of both OS's).

Now, I should be clear that I'm using the laptop's built-in touch-pad/track-point for mouse navigation and not an external mouse.

Interestingly, when I click the middle mouse trackpad button on a link to open a new tab, it works under Fedora, but not under Windows. I've checked the about:config already and ensured that they too are identical in regards to middle mouse button settings.

I am seeking some assisstance finding the log of ALL of this browser's activity that day, especially a record of any alterations to browser's history. I know that I did not physically delete hours worth of activity and there must be some way of bringing this truth to light. Thank you for your time
