Hello,

I have a long term, normally used instance of Firefox 19.0.2 (Windows 7).

I wanted a separate instance of Firefox. Using IE, I downloaded and saved a setup file of 19.0.2 into a specific folder, I installed it into that folder.

Upon opening it from that folder, it had the Bookmarks, etc. from the original instance. Stupidly, thinking it was a separate installation, I deleted the Bookmarks and Bookmarks from the Bookmarks Toolbar.

Is there any way to recover the Bookmarks? Where are the Bookmarks/Toolbar Bookmarks saved; and what is the file name? I have a good recovery program, Recuva, from CCleaner.

I have run a deep scan with it. There are some recoverable files. But, what am I looking for, and where/how do I insert them if recovered? Is there any hope (a gazillion folders and Bookmarks)?

Then, whether recovered or not, how do I create separate instances of Firefox, that do not share any files? I don’t mind if the add-ons/extensions, and scripts are duplicated, but I can do that separately.

Also, “firefox.exe –p”, which worked previously, now will not work. The error message is:

"Windows cannot find ‘firefox.exe’. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."

Thanks,

Steve

Due to a legacy application, we must continue to use an old version of Reader with Firefox. Firefox 19 changes it to the built-in viewer, and once someone has upgraded, setting "pdfjs.disabled" to "true" changes the action to "Always ask" (not back to Reader). If I set it through Tools and Options, it only changes it for the current user.

I need to be able to apply to set this for all users, and preferably in a way that can be deployed to many machines.

Mail Redirect, a TB addon, recently switched to Sourceforge because MozDev was shutting down or something. However, attempting to download the latest XPI from Sourceforge (http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/mailredirect/mailredirect-0.7.7-sm%2Btb.xpi?r=http%3A%2F%2Fsourceforge.net%2Fprojects%2Fmailredirect%2F%3Fsource%3Ddirectory&ts=1370301869&use_mirror=iweb) fails, because Firefox assumes the download is supposed to be an install of a Firefox addon, and Mail Redirect's metadata is set to be incompatible with Firefox.

There is no way to override this and force an actual download; clicking "Direct Link" on the page does the same thing, and dragging either of the links to the Downloads window (Ctrl-J) downloads an HTML document with a .XPI extension, which is obviously useless. What's more, Thunderbird has no convenient way of opening arbitrary webpages.

I finally caved and used IE to download it. It took about 30 seconds.

I have tried everything to fix my search engine tool in the upper right corner of my tool bar but have been unable to change, add, or even restore it to the default settings. I think I may have downloaded an add-on that conflicted somehow and changed my search engine and deleted all the rest, that would have been fine if only I could restore the defaults. I even restore firefox entirely to see if that would fix the problem, which it did not. The only other option I have next is completely uninstall and reinstall Firefox, but I really don't want to do that because I will lose all my bookmarks. Please can someone help me with this if possible.

Every couple days, certain web pages look all messed up (as though HTML layout isn't working; more like lines of text and no formatting -- Facebook & Huffington Post are often problems) or pages won't load content I know should appear (like Google Maps). Somehow I figured out a few months ago that if I clear the "Recent History," it fixes the problem. But I'm tired of doing this, sometimes several times a day, because I have to reenter passwords or user names on open pages. I did reinstall Firebox months ago but that had no effect. What is happening and why? (At one point, I thought it was a Java problem but I don't even know what Java is.) Can you fix it?

Since my last Firefox upgrade (Mac 19.0.2), many websites that I rely on, that worked perfectly well in prior versions no longer work, either partially or fully (examples: Pandora, Apple Support, My Banking Site, Firefox Support--can't use the reply button, etc.). In some cases, the site won't load at all, but in many cases, simple functions like buttons just don't work. Whenever this happens I switch to Safari and everything works perfectly well. I have tried all the solutions offered in other parts of this support site (clearing cache, cookies, resetting, checking proxy settings, etc.), but none of this makes any difference. I like Firefox, but I'm so frustrated, I'm ready to give up on it.

I always relied on the automatic connection to the wifi router landing page. This is in practice not an issue when I am using my own portable router (MIFI 3352), since I can easily connect to the router just typing the IP address in the Firefox address bar. Nevertheless that might be a problem if I try to connect to a public wifi router, whose address might be different from the standard 192.168.1.1 .

I do not remember whether the behaviour of Firefox has changed after I have updated to the last version via "yum update", but I am almost sure that I did so recently ...

Very best regards.

Alessandro Volpi

P.S. I have installed the troubleshooter, but this is not relevant, since I am now working on my Desktop workstation with optical fibre Internet connection and not of my wifi connected portable. Also the portable has got version 19.0.2

Periodically, Firefox 19.0.2 will completely lock up. All I can do is use Windows task manager to kill it. then Firefox will not launch again (but firefox.exe shows in task manager) until I reboot the computer.

After rebooting, the Swagbucks toolbar is gone from Firefox. It's not anywhere in the plugins or addons or anywhere to re-enable, IT'S GONE.

So I have to reinstall the toolbar, and it works until Firefox locks up and deletes it again.

P.S. Fix the scrolling to support ALL devices just like every other web browser and application. This has been broken since Firefox 4.0. I have a 4-way scroll button on my laptop (with vista Ultimate) that works with everything except Firefox. Simple fix? Use the same HID API everyone else does. Microsoft provides that so programmers (such as those who code Firefox) don't have to write their own support for everything - that's the major point of an OS like Windows.

This button just went missing all of a sudden. I now have only one tab group, and I can't reach any of the other 3 groups I had before this happened.

I tried closing and restarting Firefox, which didn't help. I tried restoring the Profile from last week. This worked at first, but then I clicked the "list all tabs" button, went to another tab group, and BINGO - lost the "list all tabs" button again!

This is extremely annoying. I am now using a restored Profile, but I cannot click the "list all tabs" button any more without losing all the tabs but the ones in the tab group I go to. So I effectively don't have tab groups any more!

There is a pop up security update that comes up when I open or sometimes when I'm in the middle of another program on firefox. It says I need to install or download or something to that effect for security purposes. However, when I attempt to do that it just sits there and says that it is trying to connect to the server and it will sit there forever if I let it. So I just keep closing it sometimes with the tell me later button and lately with the close button. When I press the more info button it takes me to the mozilla firefox site but I don't find any info on this update that it says I need to have. HELP. I can't get rid of it and it is annoying to have it keep popping up all the time.
