Regarding old Firefox folder that strangely appeared on my desktop---may I delete it? I like a clean house. Did not read where anyone asked that question and got a specific answer. It has been there since March 10th, according to the properties button. I just noticed it. But I do not want to delete anything where I may lose extensions or something else. If it is just a backup, can't I just get rid of it. I would not know what to do with it anyway.

I have looked at all of the posts on this but none of the solutions proposed works. As long as I do not reboot my computer, the history and tabs are retained. As soon as I reboot, everything (downloads, tabs, history) gets wiped out. This just started a few days ago so the question is, what has changed? How do I figure out what has triggered this problem?

I can't open anything in my Downloads list. I've tried resetting firefox and I've also tried everything in your article "What to do if you can't download or save files" but nothing helps. I tried to upgrade to the latest firefox to see if this helps but once I've hit the Download button, 1 minute later it appears in my downloads list and... same issue... I can't open it to run it! It's like it's crashed, because no amount of clicking on a download will activate anything. It seems like the Downloads list is dead! Also, (and I think this is linked), I cannot save web pages. I go though the motions and it looks like it's doing the right thing but the pages don't save - they just disappear into the ether! I'm on Windows Vista and have been downloading things happily for years, but suddenly this problem has occured and I've run out of ideas now... Please help!

My computer had a system restore after a storm shut my computer off after being frozen. No other issues are going on other than when I try to use the search bar, nothing happens. If I use the drop down box in the search bar, the only options I get are Add "Firefox Help", and Manage search engines. If I click on manage search engines, usually I get a list of options, google, yahoo, etc, but it is completely empty and restore defaults is grayed out.

Per other suggestions on this forum, I have upgraded to the latest firefox version, I have also downloaded the serachreset addon which didn't help. Also, there was another post on deleting the formhistory.sqlite file under my profiles, however, when I went to try this, there was no such file for me. (from this website's instructions http://kb.mozillazine.org/Unable_to_search_or_add_new_engines)

Please help as I don't want to have to delete the entire program just to find that upon reinstall, I don't have a fix.

I can provide a screenshot to help illustrate my problem. Every page I load has numerous ad boxes embedded into the page from "Ads by Browse to Save". Does anyone else have this problem? Is this something that firefox added to their browser or do I have a malware problem? (I see no option to post a screenshot of the problem, as is advised on the community help homepage. Maybe I will have that option once my question is posted.)

I am an administrator (but not the creator) of a website that I am responsible for updating. I do not have the documentation that I need to carry out some of my tasks. So I thought I could find out enough simply by saving the site from Firefox. The last time I did this (several years and versions of Firefox ago), there was a "Save As" command that would save the main HTML file in a selected folder AND save all the referenced subsidiary files in a unique subfolder, so constructing a local version of the site. When I tried this today in v20.0.1, both "Save As" options created a single file of the current page with all the original cross-references left as links only. Is there some other way for "dumping" the whole application onto my local hard drive?

I have noticed that on some websites the navigation buttons do not appear. In particular the TomTom shop would not work in Firefox because instead of the buttons I get a moving icon of bars, like a progress meter, but no button to click. Works fine on the old Explorer I have still on the PC. Also noticed that the Google "paid for" search results do not do anything, (but this may be down to the fact I have blocked doubleclick). Currently running Firefox version 20.0.1 on Windows 7 32 bit. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. Regards

Sometimes some of the text on a page is almost illegible. Assuming black text on a white background, some of the pixels that should be black are white instead. Most of the time if I scroll the page so the bad text is hidden and then scroll back, the text appears correctly. Sometimes the text spontaneously corrects. This started happening with Firefox version 19.0.0.

I have an LCD monitor with 1920x1080 resolution. I don't have this problem with any other program.

when streaming, Task Manager notes:

Flashplayerplugin__11__7__700__169.exe *32 -- uses 50% of CPU and higher

plugin - container.exe*32 -- uses 40% of CPU and higher

Using 100% of CPU results in choppy video. I do not believe this heavy CPU use was not the case before I upgraded from Firefox13 and Adobe flashplayer 11. I tried downgrading but this did not seem to make a difference.

Thanks for any help.

Hello, i have a wordpress website on which i set the w3 total cache plugin with a cdn, the cdn is MaxCDN and is configured to not serve images but only css & js & font files. Because i configured the cdn not to serve images, the images in css files have the src as absolute path, path which point to original website domain, something like this: background-image: url("http://www.originaldomain.com/images/back.jpg");, the css file is served from the cdn like this: http://cdn.originaldomain.com/css/style.css . So the problem is that firefox refuse to load the images referred in style.css file, images which probably appear to be in another domain. If i try to load the images directly in browser, using address bar, they are loading ok, but on loading from css file i got a http error 500 (acording to firebug). The same website is loading ok in other browsers: ie7/ie8/ie9, opera, safari and chrome. Can anyone help me to solve the issue?

Since today, Firefox starts automatically as a silent process consuming 30% of my cpu time and some 7 MB of memory usage. This happens on startup or while no visible Firefox is running. Killing the process causes the Firefox to restart, again silently, within a few seconds.

Opening a Firefox window for web browsing causes another Firefox process to start (parallel to the other one).

A file system search (search companion) for firefox.exe gives the following result: firefox.exe.hdmp firefox.exe.mdmp firefox.exe.hdmp firefox.exe.mdmp firefox.exe.hdmp firefox.exe.mdmp firefox.exe.hdmp firefox.exe.mdmp firefox.exe.hdmp firefox.exe.mdmp FIREFOX.EXE-28641590.pf firefox.exe
