The duplication of "8401253179582" in the address is correct. I got this popup telling me to download this patch like it is an security issue. Does Mozilla know anything about this????

/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin --new-tab <url>

but this attempts to open a second copy of the browser, which results in the error:

"A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time."

Is there a way round this?

Clicking the above link in FF47 has normally displayed until not long ago a list of my e-mail clients present on my Win 10 Pro 64-bit PC. In the list, Thunderbird (my default) was highlighted. After confirming it, Thunderbird (v. 42.2) was launched with the intended URL (of the given Web page) in the e-mail body. This was what I wanted. Several days ago, the e-mail link stopped working and it does not do anything any longer although it behaves (in the toolbar) as "live" (not "dead") icon. I am an advanced user but cannot find out or figure out what has happened and how to restore its previous normal functionality. Let me add that I have quite a number of add-ons in FF, some of which I have added recently (they are all related to security). Please, advise what should be done to solve my problem. Thank you for your attention.

I received notice from Firefox about its latest update. After completing the update (47.0), the cache will not clear to '0' as it has done for years. I went to about:cache and saw a 'cache2' that will not clear 62kb. I know this is not much, but I do not like the fact that it will no longer completely zero. Then I noticed a folder called 'doomed'.

Can cache2 be disabled? Is there someway to completely clear cache2? Is 'doomed' malware?

Upgraded to 47 (had difficulty where normally I don't). Slowed down so slow so I ran Ccleaner (which normally dumps 400 to 500mbs maybe). Now it dumps up to 1500 mbs and I watch it scroll through Internet Explorer - seems like all temp files go through IE as well as Firefox. I tried turning IE off - did not help so I turned it back on. I just increased my internet provider speed from 7 to 12mgs (now with WiFi). On my network I only have my desktop and my one older Kindle. I have watchnet and only see those two items on my network. This is terrible and I have to keep running CCleaner to even use my email. How disappointing. Please, I would appreciate help - how can I roll back to version 46? Thanks so much.

Sometimes when I type an address in the address bar and click "Enter", the active tab just closes instead of loading the page. I get no error warning. I'm not certain but I think it has also happened at least once when I clicked a link on a page. As far as I can tell, it's not a specific site, or type of sites. It's not a common thing, only happens once in a while.

Bookmarks sync problems: Bookmarks keep rearranging themselves in the bookmarks toolbar, and do not sync completely on Windows and Android.

My setup

I'm using Firefox 47.0 on Fedora (64-bit GNU/Linux) with GNOME shell, and on Windows 10 (64-bit). I also have Firefox Sync on an Android tablet, but I don't do as much web browsing on my tablet, so I haven't needed to look at the bookmarks there...


The problem(s)

On Fedora, the bookmarks in the Firefox bookmarks toolbar rearrange themselves. The bookmarks in one folder shift from the bottom to the top, and some bookmarks in the toolbar shift from left to right. I arrange my bookmarks by loose priority, so this annoying. Whenever I notice the bookmarks being out of order, I drag them back to where they were, but they always move themselves again later. This has been an ongoing issue for a couple months; I've only seriously attempted to troubleshoot the issue over the past week or so, and I'm not having any luck.

I don't think I've ever noticed the bookmarks moving themselves in the middle of a session, so I believe it's actually happening when I close or launch Firefox. However, reproducing this issue has been tricky, since the bookmarks do not *always* shuffle themselves every time I launch Firefox. Depending on how often I open/close the application, I may notice the bookmarks moving themselves once every other day, or a couple times in a single day.

This may be a separate issue, but I noticed it around the same time: On Windows 10, my bookmarks do not sync at all. There three or four bookmarks in the toolbar, but these do not get updated when I change them on my Linux machine, and none of the other bookmarks have synced to the Windows machine.


Things that I've already tried

I've tried reverting my bookmarks to a recent automatic backup (Library > Import and Backup > Restore). No change.

I've tried disabling all addons. No change.

I tried refreshing Firefox, to "reset to factory defaults". No change.

I tried deleting the file `xulstore.json` in my Firefox profile. No change.

I tried installing and running the Places Maintenance extension. I didn't entirely understand all the text output it generated while running, but I don't think it found any real errors. Anyway, no change.

I tried backing up my exports to a JSON file, then closing Firefox, then deleting the places.sqlite file, then restarting Firefox, and importing the bookmarks JSON file. No change.

Bookmarks still rearrange themselves on Linux and do not sync at all on Windows  :(

I am using Windows 7, and everything was fine this a.m. This afternoon, Firefox keeps hanging - and when I check Task Manager, it seems that Flash Player keeps trying to load - and it also looks like this new version (Flash 22.0.0.192) was updated today. Chrome and IE are working fine, so it seems to be some bug between it and Firefox. I tried all the "fixes" on the site, and nothing helped. Does someone have a solution?

I sorted by name a while back and today I add bookmarks and they are at the bottom of the Bookmarks Menu. Do I have to resort them every time I add one?

Also, I keep on seeing these useless "Unsorted Bookmarks" and "Recent Tags" and "Bookmarks Toolbar" wasting space and distracting me. I want 1 Bookmarks area for everything. So simple. So logical. So easy to manage. 1 folder with lots of subfolders. Like anybody organizes anything. Is this possible? Who even uses Toolbars? People with Amnesia? Who can't remember keyboard shortcuts you use time and time again? With each revision software just treats us as if we have less and less brain power. Its a disturbing trend these days.

If web designers made cars they'd forget to install a steering wheel. There's an enormous lack of common sense in tech today. Its like they design by principle with a computer but don't actually use it to hone the design.

Closed FF browser for lunch, came back, open FF browser & ALL my previous settings are gone, even my default search engine is gone. I opened to a screen as if it was the first time I ever used FF, & had to learn to use it for my personal preferences, yet I've used Mozilla FF for over a decade, whats up with you over there?! I previously had very similar problem after downloading & using Win 10, for apprx. one month, the FF browser did the same thing in that ALL my settings were gone, BUT it also froze my computer! I had to spend money to get all my engineering design work recovered and check all parts of my computer to not be corrupted. After paying the money and verifying my computer was working fine, I had the tech get me back to Win 7, and now here I am again, but now in Win 7 & except that my computer isn't 'frozen' yet! I need my settings restored & everything back as it was just 30 minutes ago AND a way to stop this from happening ever again! Hope you guys aren't getting too big a company and not able to really help it's customers! (FYI, I do see FF apps are where I preferenced them, also my bookmarks are available, but I have to take time to put all settings back to where I originally put them. I don't want to constantly do this and pros-pone documents to my partners around the world, & I don't really want to change from using Mozilla FF, but this is second time and I'll change if necessary. I need your help!

Tried all the help ideas and none worked. Tried to erase the "Printer" settings in "Config" and all other help I could find. Also tried to get a fresh copy of Firefox. Once I switch the printer it DOES NOT switch back.

It ONLY happens on Firefox. IE and Chrome have NO issue.

When you hit Control_D a window pops up. Now say you want to be organized and instead of throwing this into the pile at Unsorted Bookmarks you actually want to place it somewhere specific, the general way seems to be to click: Folder then Choose then scroll down to the folder/subfolder and hit OK.

If you have thousands of bookmarks like I do this is hard to do in the tiny window offered. It would be great to have it much larger - better yet, full screen.

Also it would be great to be able to do this without wasting time with the rodent (mouse). It seems impossible to insert a bookmark this way without involving the mouse.

I often wonder if it might be better to just simplify everything and use a text based bookmarking system with a text reader like Word, Libreoffice, Wordpad or Jarte that can launch your browser from an URL in a DOC or RTF document. Most of these programs can sort alphabetically as well! Folders, subfolders and text documents could organize everything. It could be read or copy and pasted from with any browser. It wouldn't be as seamless as having it integrated with the browser of course. It would have a huge advantage if you're working on different platforms and different machines. Everything can read text after all. As a last resort you could just copy and paste the text of the URL's. You could also add your own notes and it would display exactly how you wanted it, not some software designer who rarely seems to have their mind planted in reality.
