After upgrading to Firefox 8 there are no bookmarks in the sidebar when it is displayed. The bookmarks are there under the Bookmarks menu. History appears in the sidebar

There are no bookmarks in the bookmarks sidebar. The only way I can access my bookmarks is by clicking on the Bookmarks Menu. All booksmarks and folder then show up in the drop down menu - but when I go to organise them, there is nothing listed under Organise. My history will show up in the sidebar. I can't find a way to sort my bookmarks, and don't know if I can save a new bookmark.

Open or close History Sidebar --> CTRL+H <br />
Open or close Bookmarks Sidebar --> CTRL+B
Click the small "x" to the right of the word History or Bookmarks in the Sidebar will close that sidebar<br />
If the History Sidebar is open, CTRL+B will close it and open the Bookmarks Sidebar<br />
If the Bookmarks Sidebar is open, CTRL+H will close it and open the History Sidebar

  • After upgrading to Firefox 7 my browser is nearly non functional. CPU goes to 60% and sticks there

    I regularly have about 8 tabs open. When I open the browser it can not load all of the tabs. Some load and some do not. Indeed my memory usage is low, but my cpu runs up to 60% and just lives there. I would appreciate a fix or a link to the old firefox 6 that actually worked. Thanks
    In an effort to fix this I have:Installed the new version over the top of the old version:Removed the old version and totally reinstalled (left user profile)

    This can happen when Firefox is not open and has to launch when you click the link in the email. It is a longstanding glitch that seems to haunt some people repeatedly while others never see it.
    The usual cause is that the registry setting for URLs has become corrupted with a mixture of Firefox and IE settings. If changing your default browser to IE and then changing it back to Firefox does not correct the mix-up, you might need to fix those settings manually.
    In the following article, look at the section called "File Types edit": [ Windows error opening Internet shortcut or local HTML file - Firefox - MozillaZine Knowledge Base].
    Did that work?

  • After upgrading to Firefox 8 on Mac and while in gmail when I click on a msg to open it all I get is an advertisment; not the msg text. Help.

    Happens when try to open any gmail msg, older saved or new received msgs.

    I had the same problem and finally noticed it had to do with AdBlock Plus. When Adblock is switched off, the messages were viewed correctly.
    '''How to solve it and stay using AdBlock Plus'''
    Go to "Tools", choose "Add-ons" > "AdBlock Plus Options" > "Filters" > "Update All Subscriptions"
    Reload Gmail and your problem will be solved.

  • My stills are all over the place when I export them. How can I have them play as they appear on the Viewer?

    Hello everyone.
    When I exported my video (all stills), the images are all over the place. I had adjusted the postition (X & Y) for each one, and when I exported the video, the stills are not staying in one place, but are coming from different angles and different positions. How can I fix it so that when exported, it plays as it does on my Viewer?
    Thank you!

    First, I'd try deleting all render files in both the associated Events and Projects (File menu).  Do not render before exporting.
    "Preference Manager" is a free download from Digital Rebellion (dot com) you can delete the FCP X pref files quickly, easily, safely.  Try that next.

  • I'm having a potpourri/Hat-Trick of issues after upgrading to Firefox 7.0.1

    The only reason I'm asking is because the three new issues occurred immediately after upgrading from the last install of Firefox to the newest release, Firefox 7.0.1
    The first: for some reason I have to go to about:config to reset the "Close Tabs" part from 3 to the default 1 setting...which is having a Close Tab "X" on the tab. It means I have to right-click and select the bottom option on the drop down menu to close tabs I'm through with using.
    The second: Most of the time Google Videos will not function on 3rd party web sites (Like "Documentary Storm"). I have to redirect to the Google Video webpage to watch Google featured documentaries that have been embedded in some documentary sites.
    There are now more frequent error messages of "Not Responding" on websites...the screen locks up for a few seconds before going backwards or forwards (On "The Chive", "The Brigade", and many other picture or video oriented websites.) The scroll bar on the right side of the screen is also locking up which means the "Not Responding" error message is popping up for this also.
    All of these are different from each other and at first thought would be issues I need to take up with tech support for the different programs I use. That is my next step, but I was very curious if anybody else was having similiar problems after upgrading to Firefox 7.0.1.
    I'm not sure if a couple things might be set off by incompatible Addons. None of the symptoms jive with known incompatibility problems with 7.0.1. and with none of my Addons either. It was just very coincidental things went awry in 3 different areas that had worked 10 minutes previous to the upgrade.
    Any ideas or similarity with other folk's upgrade issues?
    Thanks tons for any advice given! Hoping it's something ridiculously easy. : /
    Oh yeah...all other programs are up to date. Freakishly OCD about keeping current with programs.

    Thank you for describing the problems so well. I also have been going nuts trying to restore my Itunes Library to its original (or acceptable) condition. I have a 5th gen 30G Video with about 4250 songs on it. After downloading 7 I found that every song in my Library had been dulplicated or triplicated. Then, a day latr, when I had downloaded album art, I discovered that every other song in any album I had downloaded (from Itunes or my own cd)prior to perhaps version 5 or version 6 could not be found. Luckily, I had an generation 4 Ipod with the original Library and I was able to download that to my external harddrive. I have spending pointless, arduous hours pointing Itunes to the correct file. Its faster to re-download the CD. Of course, I can't do that for any music I had bought from Itunes directly. Its weird because the name of the song is in Itunes, just the file can't be found. And why every other file? When I go into earlier (6 and before)Itunes Libraries, the music files are missing from them. Where did they go? When I try to sync my Ipod with Itunes, it takes forever because Itunes is searching for the missing files. I have tried to ask Apple support directly but I have gotten no response. Very, very frustrating! Any headway with your problems? Lisa

  • Bookmarks don't work after upgrading to Firefox 5.0

    My bookmarks don't work after upgrading to Firefox 5.o. Please help! The icons no longer show and instead there is a blank paper with the top right corner folded. I can't even bookmark new pages! I tried reinstalling the program and that didn't work. Please help!

    Your bookmarks file may be corrupt. Navigate to /[UserName]/AppData/Local/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/[profile_name]. Either rename places.sqlite to places.sqlite.corrupt (or whatever) in case this isn't the problem, or delete places.sqlite. Start/Restart Firefox. The icons for sites that have a favicon should return after you visit each site.

  • After upgrading to Firefox 36.0.4, it automatically installed noscript

    After upgrading to Firefox 36.0.4, it removes all my existing add-on extension.
    In addition, "noscript" was automatically installed and there is no way to remove it.
    The "noscript" add-on does not show up in any of the add-on extension for me to disable/remove it.
    I even tried adding noscript from the add-on so that the noscript add-on shows up in the
    firefox extension page so that I could remove it but that does not remove the
    original noscript that comes with Firefox 36.0.4
    Hopefully there is a way for user to remove this and it is not part of Firefox 36.0.4.
    At least allow user the options of using it or remove it.

    Do a clean reinstall and delete the Firefox program folder before (re)installing a fresh copy of the current Firefox release.
    *Download the full Firefox installer and save the file to the desktop<br>
    If possible uninstall your current Firefox version to cleanup the Windows registry and settings in security software.
    *Do NOT remove "personal data" when you uninstall your current Firefox version, because this will remove all profile folders and you lose personal data like bookmarks and passwords including data in profiles created by other Firefox versions.
    Remove the Firefox program folder before installing that newly downloaded copy of the Firefox installer.
    *(32 bit Windows) "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\"
    *(64 bit Windows) "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\"
    *It is important to delete the Firefox program folder to remove all the files and make sure that there are no problems with files that were leftover after uninstalling.
    Your bookmarks and other personal data are stored in the Firefox profile folder and won't be affected by an uninstall and (re)install, but make sure NOT to remove personal data when you uninstall Firefox as that will remove all Firefox profile folders and you lose your personal data.
    If you keep having problems then also create a new profile.
    Thanks Cor-el. This works.

  • Cannot view OWA email - after upgrade to Firefox 5.0, Outlook Web Access displays ASCII characters (garbage) in message body. Same issue with multiple servers.

    Email body of HTML or RTF messages are rendered in ASCII characters after upgrading to Firefox 5 when viewing email in MS Outlook Web Access (OWA) light from MS Exchange 2007 servers. Issue is repeatable with two entirely different Exchange systems.
    Text email renders OK. Work around is to forward email (in use MS-IE).

    You are welcome. I'm glad you got it back up.
    (1) You say you did the symbolic link. I will assume this is set correctly; it's very important that it is.
    (2) I don't know what you mean by "Been feeding the [email protected] for several weeks now, 700 emails each day at least." After the initial training period, SpamAssassin doesn't learn from mail it has already processed correctly. At this point, you only need to teach SpamAssassin when it is wrong. [email protected] should only be getting spam that is being passed as clean. Likewise, [email protected] should only be getting legitimate mail that is being flagged as junk. You are redirecting mail to both [email protected] and [email protected] ... right? SpamAssassin needs both.
    (3) Next, as I said before, you need to implement those "Frontline spam defense for Mac OS X Server." Once you have that done and issue "postfix reload" you can look at your SMTP log in Server Admin and watch as Postfix blocks one piece of junk mail after another. It's kind of cool.
    (4) Add some SARE rules:
    Visit and download the following rules:
    Visit and download the following rules:
    Copy these rules to /etc/mail/spamassassin/
    Then stop and restart mail services.
    There are other things you can do, and you'll find differing opinions about such things. In general, I think implementing the "Frontline spam defense for Mac OS X Server" and adding the SARE rules will help a lot. Good luck!

  • After upgrading to Firefox 9.0.1, on first run after every reboot, the following warning apears for every installed Add-on. "Another program on your computer would like to modify Firefox with the following add-on"

    After upgrading to Firefox 9.0.1, on first run after every reboot, the following warning appears for every installed Add-on.
    "Another program on your computer would like to modify Firefox with the following add-on"
    So, i have to "Enable" my installed Add-ons on each reboot.
    Would you please help me !
    P.S.: I found that these files (and some others) will be deleted on each reboot, and it happens on computer start up (not at shut down)!
    And as i mentioned, i have the same anti virus on my laptop and desktop, but i have not any problem on laptop.

    Do you have security software that acts like a sandbox or uses virtualization to restore files on a next boot?
    See also:
    It is possible that there is a problem with the file(s) that store the extensions registry.
    Delete the files extensions.* (e.g. extensions.sqlite, extensions.ini, extensions.cache) and compatibility.ini in the Firefox profile folder to reset the extensions registry.
    New files will be created when required.
    See "Corrupt extension files":
    If you see disabled, not compatible, extensions in "Tools > Add-ons > Extensions" then click the Tools button at the left side of the Search Bar (or click the "Find Updates" button in older Firefox versions) to do a compatibility check or see if there is a compatibility update available.

    Hey there Noel,
    It sounds like you are unable to activate your iPhone after you reset it. I recommend the steps from the following article to help you get that resolved:
    Get help activating your iPhone
    If your carrier provided a SIM card, make sure it's in your iPhone.
    Restart the iPhone.
    Try to reach the activation server another way, then try to activate.
    Try connecting to a known-good Wi-Fi network if you can't activate using a cellular data connection.
    Try connecting to iTunes if you can't activate using Wi-Fi.
    Restore the iPhone.
    Check the system status for iOS Device Activation. If the iOS Device Activation status isn't green, try activating your iPhone later.
    If you receive an alert message when you try to activate your iPhone, place the iPhone in recovery mode and perform a restore. If you still can't complete the setup assistant due to an activation error, contact Apple for assistance.
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
    All the best,

  • Can't get past home page of instructables after upgrading to firefox 13

    I can load the home page, but if i click on anything past it, it acts like it continually loads, nothing comes up on the page, it sticks at "Transferring data from" or "Read" it seems to only have happened after upgrading to firefox 13. I have an old version of firefox aurora that came with the tor browser suite and tried instructables on there. worked perfect, and i was going to instructables on a regular basis before the update, so it's gotta be from the update right? what can i do to fix it?
    P.S. It's not just the specific URL under "URL of affected site" because none of the pages will load after the home page.

    did that solve the issue? i still believe it has more likely to do something with faulty cache (maybe the restart of the browser really triggered it );
    if it was an issue with dns prefetching it would be rather strage since you already were on the domain & wouldn't have had to resolve the domain for the subsites again. and since the server, your isp or your local hardware might not support ipv6 fully yet, it can always cause some glitches too...

  • What can I do about this: After upgrading to firefox 6, I get this error. TypeError: Components.classes[cid] is undefined???

    What can I do about this:
    After upgrading to firefox 6, I get this error.
    When I click to open Firefox, A box open with the following error:
    JAVASCRIPT Application
    TypeError: Components.classes[cid] is undefined?
    After I click close on the box, then Firefox will start. I really just want to get the error fixed so that when I want firefox open, I don't have to see this box anymore.

    You need to figure out which add-on is causing that error and disable it until the developer of that add-on fixes it. There may be an error message about that in the Error Console, accessed through the Web Developer menu item or through {Ctrl + Shft + J}.

  • After upgrade to Firefox 6, certain sites can no longer be loaded.

    After upgrading from Firefox 5 to FF 6, certain sites will no longer load. These sites both use Typepad and that seems to be where FF6 hangs. Have not had this problem with FF5. Tried clearing cache, deleting bookmarks (to sites that won't load), and typing in address. That doesn't help. Sometimes, the sites load partly (i.e. with only words, no images); other times, load after a long time (several minutes); most often will not load at all.

    I've only one hint to you, cause I've mot on Mac-Server.
    With 10.7 Apple have switched from Samba (maybe due to licence problems with GPL based stuff) to a own protocol called "XSMB"
    This had caused problems with some NAS systems too.
    Eventually someone have a glue to solve that, as several users have problems with SMB shares since that.
