After installing Firefox 5, why, after closing and reopening the programme, do I seem to have lost most of the new features?

After installing Firefox 5, replacing my previous version (4.5), I could see the new features. However, having closed and reopened Firefox, it seems as though it has reverted to the previous version, even though 'Help - About' says I'm running on version 5.0.
I had to download 5.0 from the Mozilla website, as I tried to update via the update tool in 4.5, but it claimed I was fully up to date, even though I have 5.0 on another machine (which works perfectly).

Can you please describe the "new features" that you saw first time you opened Firefox 5?
Thank you.

  • I seem to have lost most of my 9000 photos when I upgraded to Yosemite 10.10.3. iPhoto won't work now and says it needs an upgrade not available in the UK. Only a few of the 9000 photos appear on Photos! HELP?

    Move the incompatible iPhoto version to the Trash, before you try to reinstall from the AppStore, but don't empty the Trash.
    update as described here:
    Get iPhoto 9.6.1 if you didn't update before OS... | Apple Support Communities
    The main idea is to move the iPhoto app to the Trash, so Spotlight does not see it as installed, reload the AppStore Purchases tab with ⌘R, and then to try to download again from the App Store - from your Purchases tab, not from the main page, since you can neither buy iPhoto nor update it, but you can reinstall, if your AppleID is associated with it.

  • I seem to have lost most of my itunes library and cannot locate it

    I  recently backed up my ipad and iphone but seem to have lost most of my itunes music.  Any ideas

    *Most of the library now has the little !*
    That just means that iTunes can't locate the files. Have you perhaps moved, deleted or renamed a folder that contained the music you had in your library?
    *however some songs are still on one of the iPods*
    There are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the music files and playlists from your iPod. You'll find that they have varying degrees of functionality and some will transfer movies, videos, photos, podcasts and games as well. Have a look at the web pages and documentation, this is just a small selection of what's available, they are generally quite straightforward. You can read reviews and comparisons of some of them here:

  • 3 iPods, one library and seem to have lost most of my iTunes library

    Here's the deal - 3 separate iPods, uneducated users, and (we think) one library. Most of the library now has the little ! beside each song however some songs are still on one of the iPods but can't be found in the library. I seriously need help. Any thoughts appreciated.

  • Since installing OS X Yosemite on the laptop, I have lost most of the contacts How do I find them and get them back on the laptop?

    I   installed OS X Yosemite version 10.10.2 and almost all of my contacts are now gone. How do I retreive them
    Also the laptop is extremely slow now.

    Do you synchronize your contacts with iCloud or some other network service? What backups do you have?

  • Where is my I Photo Library in Time Machine Backups as I seem to have lost photos after installing Lion?

    Can anybody tell me how I can locate my photos from I Photo in the Time Machine backups as I seem to have lost most of 2011 after installing Lion.
    Many thanks

    To recover individual photos open iPhoto and use the File ➙ Browse Backups menu option.
    Click to view full size
    That will take you into iPhoto in Time Machine where you can search for the phtoos and restore them.
    To restore the entire library, close iPhoto, go to the Pictures folder, enter Time Machine, go back in time till you get the library you want to restore, select it and use the Restore button.

  • Why does Firefox keep me logged into websites after closing and reopening the browser?

    As of today, Firefox has been behaving differently. Namely, when I close Firefox and reopen, I am still logged in to email and other sites. I have all of my privacy settings checked, such as clear history, offline data, form history, etc etc so that they all will be deleted upon closing but this has no effect. Can someone provide insight as to why this is happening and how I can correct it? Before today, after closing and reopening the browser I was required to log in to any sites requiring UN and PW.
    I have rechecked all history deletion options to make sure all the appropriate ones were selected. Yesterday, I noticed inbox.com and a program called 24x7 Help were installed on the computer, without my knowledge. I promptly uninstalled them,but I'm not sure if they could somehow be responsible for the odd behavior.

    Such a behavior indicates that you keep the cookie(s) that verify that you are logged on to a web server.
    Are you using session restore to open those tabs automatically?
    * Tools > Options > General > Startup: "When Firefox Starts": "Show my windows and tabs from last time"
    You can set the <b>browser.sessionstore.privacy_level</b> pref to 2 (never) or 1 (non-HTTPS, default in Firefox 3 versions) on the <b>about:config</b> page to disable saving cookies via session restore.
    You can change the browser.sessionstore.privacy_level_deferred pref that is used when you do not reopen the previous session automatically via "Show my windows and tabs from last time".

  • Must restart after installing firefox and kde...WHY????

    Every time I set up an arch box, when I install firefox or kde (probably others) I must restart the computer before I can even execute them. This is mighty inconvenient and un-linux-like, I noticed that during the bootup, the Updating Shared Library Links takes a little longer after installing firefox or kde, is there a command I can run that does this after installing firefox or kde that dosen't require me to restart?

    I wish pacman or the .install files would check to see if /opt/foo, the path that the package was just installed to, is in $PATH and automatically source /etc/profile if it's not. I swear this is a top 10 question from users and rightfully so, they shouldn't have to deal with this. In my humble opinion.
    I'm pretty sure most do - however, that only sources it for root, not the user running - I have no idea, off the top of my head, if this works correctly under sudo.
    However, the important part is that your WM/DE is running under a totally different environment setup, and the 'export' stuff does not reach it.
    I can't really think of a good way to get around it - I know it's rather irritating to some people.  I wonder if adding something like "/opt/*/bin" to the PATH by default would work... I don't think it globs properly though...

    I recently had to reinstall my software for a
    dell computer a dell latitude d 830, then after installing all of my software and such including itunes the player did well even record to disks with no problems now that my system has done alot of updating of system files....now the itunes does not burn to my cd...error message 2131 this time
    The 2131 usually indicates firmware needs to be updated on a drive.
    Head to your drivers and downloads page for your latitude at Dell, and check for updates to your firmware for your optical drives. If you're behind and you update, does that clear up the 2131?

  • After installing Firefox v 22, AppleWorks runs slow and hangs up. Can I unintall v 22 and revert back to Forefox v 21?

    I work on a iMac Intel Core 2 Duo - OSX 10.6.8 I rely on using AppleWorks v 6+ (Classic mode -Rosetta) I have over 3000 records in an AppleWorks data base and do not want to lose these records.
    Also, I run two Operating Systems on my computer - one (OSX 10.6.8) in my internal HD, another from a 2TB external HD (also OSX 10.6.8). Although I do not recall doing so, I must have downloaded and installed Firefox v 22 on my "internal" HD. Since doing so, AppleWorks hangs up and sometimes requires me to Force Quit the App. However, when using my external HD (which still runs Firefox v 21) when I launch AppleWorks (from my Applications folder on my "Internal HD) I do not experience any problems with AppleWorks. The problem with AppleWorks hanging up or not responding, began only after installing Firefox v 22 on my internal HD. I have no idea why but Firefox v 22 is definitely causing problems with AppleWorks v 6+
    Is it possible to revert back to Firefox v 21 (if I uninstall v 22)?

    I 'm facing the same problem but I don't want to uninstall better to Roll back to my previous version . 'cause many plug-in ( which is most usefull and important to me ) not supported with my present version V22. like easy youtube .
    I want to know what is the benefit if I don't get any better opportunity from upgrade version and also lose my previous version's facility !

  • After installing Firefox then closing it, I cannot open it, PC says it has been cancelled due to restrictions on my computer

    I have run Firefox for over a year now. However I ended up with various pop-ups recently though they were easy enough to remove and didn't effect Firefox in any obvious way. In the past few days every time I have attempted to open Firefox, even right-clicking on the .exe file a warning pops-up saying "the operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. please contact your system administrator".
    I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and it worked fine, only to return to that warning message after I closed and re-opened it. This has also effected Google Chrome in the exact same way even though I never owned Chrome until all this business began. Internet Explorer, which I'm on now has suffered no problems.

  • Why won't my plug-in's work after installing Firefox 4?

    After installing Firefox 4 I have had problems. The Aniweather doesn't work and the other plug in don't seem to be working either. They all say they are enabled. I have reinstalled Firefox and it still doesn't work. I would go back to the old Firefox if I could find it.''Roboform Toolbar won't show when I click on the icon in the upper left corner.

    Click one of the other tabs at the left on the about:addons page if the "Get Add-ons" tab isn't working or takes too long.

  • After installing Firefox 8, my Roboform programme does not work. It worked in Firefox 7. What's happened?

    I have used Roboform for many years and it was always compatible until I think Firefox 6 when it was disabled. Since then Roboform have created a new app called RoboEverywhere which they said would work on Firefox and after installing the app, to my delight, the toolbar appeared. However, I installed Firefox 8.1 this morning and there is no Roboform toolbar. Why, after working in Firefox 7, would it not be working in 8.1?
    Thank you for any help and tips you may have.

    Roboform was causing Firefox 8 to crash on startup. You will have to download and install the latest version of Roboform (7.6.2 or newer) from http://www.roboform.com/download
