After the recent update, the font started to get badly rendered. Kind of blurry with jagged edges and transparent parts. It used to be okay D:

Sometimes it becomes okay for a moment as I scroll down on pages, and sometimes when I stop scrolling, the font stays as it is; as if there are specific positions for the text to render properly. However, not all of the fonts are affected. Only the ones inside the scroll area.

On times that the font renders properly, the bookmarks font, title bar, and tab names are unaffected and still appear not-smooth. Same thing does not happen on other browsers. All my other system fonts look okay; it's really just Firefox.

Restarting Firefox = didn't work Restarting Computer = didn't work Tried setting up Clear Type = didn't work Tried enabling and disabling Hardware Acceleration on Firefox = didn't work Tried enabling and disabling the Graphics card itself = didn't work Tried just about all of the suggestions I found on Google = none worked Tried complete uninstall and re-install of Firefox 32.0 = didn't work

Graphics Driver are updated ~ Windows is updated ~

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit Graphics AMD Radeon HD 6800


I fixed it by downgrading to Firefox 31 which makes me sure that 32.0 is the culprit. As I was about to send the message on top; I tried downgrading as my last resort and it worked. Now I'm only sending this as a report. I am hoping you'll figure out what caused it because I am quite strict (OC) that everything in my PC must remain updated >_<; thus I want to use Firefox 32.0 as much as possible.

When trying to access a website, getting message: "The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided." I have been able to access the site without any problems until yesterday. There is no option allowing me to continue to the page, so I attempted to add an exception manually. However, when I try to do this on my "certificates" tab, I get a message telling me that this website already has a valid certificate. What's the problem? I am able to access the site on other computers, it is only on my laptop that this problem appears....

I migrated to Firefox to get an uncluttered homepage and have been very happy until now. However since today, when I open Firefox, the usual Firefox symbol changes to a poorly defined Firefox symbol, with a banner 'Click Me'. If I do this just four letters appear, nothing further. Also a robotic figure appears with an invitation to get the Humble Mozilla bundle and play on. I have tried resetting the homepage but it reverts to the unwanted one on restart.

Is this a Mozilla change or is has the page been hi-jacked.

I have an Aple Mac running OS X 10.6.8 with F-Secure security software.

(For Forum Moderators: Please read /forums/forum-moderators/710264?last=59300)


Moderators, please read first before closing/removing this topic right away?
To those wanting to react here on this topic: please, also read ;)
Since my original posting https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/997009 was closed because one of the moderators felt it was going off-topic (although it was red a lot and had 131 "have-this-problem" in just a few days), here a kind of re-opening but on-topic.
Why? Because I feel we have the right to express our feelings on this major change. And publicly there is actually only this forum where that can be done on the Mozilla.org domain.
Sure, the change is there and we have to live with it (if we choose to). But that doesn't mean we can not have our voice here because after many, many years of supporting FF with our use, we suddenly are facing a layout we were always running away from.
So yes, that can cause ranting and so on (within the forum rules of course) because people feel strongly about there beloved browser.
(edit rules link note the whole topic is ordinarily outside the scope of the forum ... Posts in the Mozilla support forum must be either questions about the use of Firefox, ... Users who post about things other than Mozilla support will be directed to an alternative discussion place .... . ~J99)

Plus this way you can centralize all the negatives here instead of a lot of separate postings about the same subject ;)
To the people reacting here in this topic: there is only 1 real way to let Mozilla itself know how you feel on the new lay out and that is not through this forum. The way is to go to https://input.mozilla.org/feedback/ and let it know there.
edit You need to use a supported Firefox to post Feedback so that will soon not be possible from Fx28 2nd edit. I was wrong feedback works with any version of Fiefpx now~J99

And I think when that is done in normal words (so no f*ck you rants and so on) and suggestions, then maybe, just maybe, it has some effect.
Also, there is an Mozilla support page with info on how to get the "old look" back, see How to make the new Firefox look like the old FirefoxBut it will only partly restore the old look, certain FF29 things can not be changed.

And yes, I myself am back to Firefox 28 which is not supported or suggested by Mozilla because it has things (bugs and security) that are not fixed in it. (Edit Please use Official downloads if you must downgrade links in Install an older version of Firefox and the growing list of exploits you will open yourself up to is listed here: https://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefox.html ~J99)

I am not suggesting or advertising to others to do the same. It is a risk I am willing to take and only say it is an option.
edit My reason to go back to FF 28 is because that version still has the intuitive feel and look Firefox one was praised for. With a logical lay out and a good way to simply customize it (also in about:config).
For those who say/think "Come one man, stop whining! Grow up and just accept that Firefox has to go with its time!", to them I say: nope ;)

Ever since Firefox update (which removed ability to have tabs on bottom for whatever reason which I really enjoyed having), I'm unable to move the refresh button over to the left of the address bar, near the Home and Back/forward button which is where I want them. How can I fix this? Can I?

Thank you for your time.

Hi, Since yesterday (August 19, 2016) Netflix stop working and I get a message at the top of the page saying "Firefox is installing components needed to play audio or video, please try again later". I just called Netflix support and they say that recently they stop using Silverlight and moved to HTML5, they advised me to update Firefox to the latest version, I was running on 47.0.1 but now after installing the update I'm running on 48.0.1 but still get the same error message. I can watch Netflix with Internet Explorer but not with Firefox anymore! For years was working fine I am wondering what's going on, can you help?

For just over 1 year now, copied text will not paste into online forums. left-click HIGHLIGHT text - right-click COPY - right-click PASTE This FireFox Browser "is always" checked for updates on a weekly schedule. I also clear cookies 2 - 5 times a week. This is becoming ver-veRY-VERY! irritating when I write a fair amount of text and try to post it but cannot. WHEN will this FF problem be fixed?

"The proxy server is refusing connections

Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections.

   Check the proxy settings to make sure that they are correct.
   Contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working."

And Now i don't have access to the internet.

I have my browser buttons set up perfectly where I want them. I don't need someone else removing or moving them where they think is a better place.

How can I restore the refresh/stop button? Yes, I see the refresh in the address bar. I want it to the left, next to the home button where it's been for 10 years.

Chrome lets me put the button wherever I want it. The last Firefox version did too.
