I think I accidentally removed the Address field from the address bar (Remove from Toolbar...click...ooops!!!!). And Customize won't open, so I cannot access the list of buttons and fields to restore it. I don't want to reinstall or reset Firefox if I don't have to. How can I get the address field back and get Customize... working again? Thanks.

I have already developed a C# win form application and a chrome extension with native messaging (another C# console app) to fetch user's active tab url. I have also developed an msi setup in WiX to write under the registry (HKLM/SOFTWARE/Wow6432Node/Google/Chrome/Extensions and HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Google\Chrome\NativeMessagingHosts) programmatically and tested the installation of the chrome extension by running the setup on different Windows 7 machines. I am publishing this extension on chrome web store and then I shall install the extension on several client computers.

I want to accomplish the same with Mozilla Firefox. I am newbie in this field and going through some Firefox developers guides (XPCOM, js-ctypes etc.) and getting little confused with multiple links.

It would be of great help if anyone can guide me towards the exact solution. Please note that, 1) I have to install the extension programmatically through the same msi package which already contains my own C# app and the chrome extension with native app and 2) the client machines will be Windows only but any version (XP (optional), 7, 8, Server anything).

Because of an unresolved issue with my ISP and their email program (won't keep me logged in) it has been suggested that I reinstall Firefox which I think is a bit drastic. My question is this- would I be better off using the reset feature of uninstall Firefox and do a clean install? I know that either way I will have to reinstall ad ons , plug ins and probably other stuff. So if it were you which option would you take? Thanks Bob

hi about 2 days ago ff stopped working. i type an address into the usual window like i've done a million times, hit enter, and nothing happens. i click on a bookmark, the url shows up in the address window, but nothing happens. there are maybe 3 bookmarks that still work, and all the rest are duds. auto-complete still works, but firefox refuses to take to the address. i get a lot of "flash crashes" (thanks, adobe) so i recently updated flash, and that started the problem. this is why i distrust updates. (for the record, i keep current with firefox updates, even though it is still bloatware that uses 2 GB just to run 3 windows. anyway, any help you could offer would be most... helpful!

For several recent updates of FireFox all my ID's and passwords (saved in password manager) disappear. I have been able to retrieve them by swapping one or more of three files from a previous version ("Key3.db", "Logins.json", & "Prefs.js") UNTIL THE LAST THREE OR FOUR UPDATES. This fix no longer works and I am therefore reluctant to update any more. I would like to know... a) Has this bug been fixed? b) If it hasn't, how can I store my ID's & Passwords elsewhere so I can quickly re-install them or at least see them in a list so I can manually copy them all back in again? c) How can I stop an annoying pop-up telling me to update FireFox (other than by updating it)?

I have used FireFox happily for many years but this problem is very annoying and I am looking to change (very reluctantly) to some other browser if another update loses all ID's & Passwords and I have to re-install an older version to get them back. Please help if you can -- and thanks for considering this problem.

I know there is another post about this, but the user didn't give too much information, and the "solution" does nothing to help.

I had bunch of tabs open, which I normally do on Firefox without issue, and Firefox automatically updated itself. Shortly after, Firefox crashed while I was trying to access another web page.

Since then, it will constantly crash. If I restart and restore all my tabs, it will normally crash as soon as I try to use a new tab or type in my old ones. If I leave it alone for a while it seems to work for a matter of minutes before crashing again.

I even reset Firefox, but that did nothing for me. It just seems like it wants to crash no matter what I try.

I had just put Firefox as my default web browser (as I had it this way before, but switched to Chrome when too many problems were occurring from a previous update). I had to go right back to Chrome. While I like to keep all my browsers updated, this is simply ridiculous. I have never crashed so many times from doing what a browser is meant to do.

Anyway I can downgrade back to just version 33.0.0 until another version comes out?

After the second-to-last update, I started noticing an increase in browser crashes. The issue is always that the Plugin-Container has stopped working. I understand that the plugin container's function is to prevent such problems, but it does not appear to be working. I have the latest version of Firefox, updates, etc, but that doesn't seem to be helping. Crash reports have been sent to Mozilla, but the problem is ongoing. I use my browser heavily in both standard and incognito mode for business. I've used Firefox for a long time, but if I keep losing information mid-process, I'm going to have to consider other options. If anyone has any experience with the problem or suggestions on a possible solution, that would be greatly appreciated.

I always maximize my Firefox windows, usually leaving a few open when I exit FF before nightly shutdown. I deliberately have turned on Session Restore in my FF Options to get back to where I was when I shut down FF. When I start FF next, I get all my expected windows & tabs, but all the FF windows are reduced in size instead of maximized as they were when I shut FF down.

It's a minor problem, but I consider it a nuisance. My previous session is NOT completely restored to its previous state.

I've been using Firefox for over 10 years, & I don't think this was always what happened. I running Firefox 33.1.1, but the problem has been around thru several releases.

This problem occurs throughout the page. The same problem occurs regradless of the font I choose, but two fonts called "Clean" and "Fixed" do better than the others; they display all spaces properly apart from the space in λ x in the line given by :{{math|size=120%|1=(λ x + μy)* = λ′x* + μ′y*}}. I don't have the same problem in Chromium, which is using the same fonts.
