I had to replace my motherboard and install a new operating system on a new hard drive. Windows 7.

The old hard drive has windows 7 OEM and would not boot with the new MB.

I need to recover the bookmarks from the old HD which is connected to the new MB.

I can access the folders. I just can't find the bookmarks. 

I need them to be complete because I used hints in the bookmarks to be able to sign in to some sights that I can't remember.

Help Please!

I will not use Firefox 29 or newer until the crappy interface introduced in v29 it made user friendly, and bring back certain missing thing from v28 (they may be profile holdovers from a much older version), no the classic theme restorer does not bring them back. The above is here simply to try and stop suggestions about using v29

I have tried going into options menu Firefox>Options>Advanced>Never Check for Updates, but that does not prevent updates. I have had to uninstall Firefox 29 5 times today every time after telling it to "Never check for updates."

Hi,

I'm securely connected to my (self-hosted) webmail. https://webmail.whatever.com I've tried to access the SpamAssassin Configuration option within it but I get the following.

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to mailboxes.whatever.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure. mailboxes.whatever.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for the following names:

 *.dreamhost.com , dreamhost.com  

(Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)

I understand why I'm getting the message, but how do I add an exception when the option to do so is not showing as it usually does? I can try and use the non-secure URL for my webmail, but I'd rather not and I might get the same results anyway.

The following does a (very) good job of explaining things, but solutions are not provided for all of the issues/messages. Perhaps that can be changed when we figure this out. http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/secure-connection-failed-error-message

Firefox will no longer open Google without a "This Connection is Untrusted" error, and no option to get a temporary certificate is available.

This problem popped up for the first time a few months ago. but I was able to work around it by by clicking on "I understand the risks" on the "This Connection Is Untrusted" warning page, and then by adding a security exception. That fix would work for random lengths of time... sometimes for days, sometimes for minutes. Now, after updating to the latest version of Firefox, I get the same security warning but the option to click "I Understand the Risks" is gone. I get this error message on the technical details page: (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer

I have done everything listed here many, many times: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/connection-untrusted-error-message I mean everything. Delete cert.db, start in safe mode, empty cache, delete and reinstall.... Nothing works.

Your help would be greatly appreciated!

I would like to completely disable the "this connection is untrusted dialog." I am an administrator and deal with many intranet sites. It is not cost effective to set an exception for each site. Corporate standards require us to use either IE, or Firefox, and I would prefer not to have to use IE.

To be clear: I am not looking for a solution that lessens the amount of overall clicks, like in browser.ssl override behavor in "about:config" nor am I looking for an Add-on (like "remember certificate exception"). I am looking for a way to remove the "this connection is untrusted" dialog completely.

A new version of Conduit has hijacked my FireFox browser, among other things. Every time I open a new tab it comes up in the conduit search engine rather than my default of Google. Any mistyping of a url sends me to bing via conduit. I used to be able to get into about:config and fix such problems, but now any attempt to do that simply sends me to bing. This is a horrible mess, and keeps happening, and FF users need a way to block these conduit takeovers.

I have dealt with this for years. I have "reset" Firefox numerous times, I have uninstalled Adobe Flash and reinstalled version 16.0.0.235. After I uninstalled and updated it ran for a while but I am back to the "Flash is busy" message. The only way I can go on is to stop the plug in, or disable it, but of course then I have no video. I installed "Videowithoutflash" (I think that was the name of it listed with Firefox extension and highly reviewed, and it all ran fine for about a day. But then the next day no videos would play unless I enabled flash, and then it soon starts crashing again. This is a problem for years now. I have been through many forums trying to find an answer, nothing works, or if it does not for long. Is there not some way to get rid of Adobe Flash and play videos? Are there any browsers that don't use flash for viewing videos? Help! Thanks in advance Bill

Yesterday I noticed that my mouse wheel no longer scrolls from anywhere on a web page. On some pages it works well but not on others. It's almost as if it hits a blind spot and will no longer scroll. If I move the pointer onto the scroll bar, or near the margin, it usually works there. If I move to a different web page it may work differently. It seems as if the formatting of the page determines whether or not it will scroll. It was not like this two days ago. It's frustrating when you move the wheel and expect the page to scroll and it doesn't. If I restart FF in safe mode the mouse wheel scrolls properly.

My username and password for my university website: https://www.bb.reading.ac.uk/ stopped appearing automatically, and the password only appeared when I typed in my username. I couldn't bothered to type the username every time, so I deleted the website in the 'Saved Password...' section thinking I would be prompted to remember the password again. But it never came up and cannot seem to find a function that would allow me to remember a password for the website.
