Private Browsing issues: New window is a "pop-up" & Right-clicking bookmarks shows grayed-out options

When I'm in private browsing mode in Firefox 38.0.1 for Windows 8.1, I cannot do the following things.

1. When I click on a link to open a new window, that new window is like a pop-up window (no menus, no scroll-bars). But I have pop-up windows blocked, so it acts like but is not technically a pop-up window since it's not being blocked.

2. When I choose a bookmark and then right-click on it to choose another bookmark either in a new window or new tab (or any of the other options that appear), the text is grayed out so that I cannot choose it.

Are these "issues" normal for Firefox 38.0.1?

This just started happening today and I'm not sure why. I've tried troubleshooting and nothing works. I even tried refreshing Firefox and safe mode. It still crashes and there is no crash report. I can open Youtube's main page just fine, but when I try to play a video it immediately crashes. I've tried playing around with disabling plugins and anything else I can think of, but nothing works.

Hi

I use the windows On screen keyboard 95% of the time. And I like to place it generally in the middle of the window when using it. When I need to type into the search box, and even though the On screen keyboard is set to Always On Top, it always goes UNDER the dropdown search suggestions list, which blocks my ability to keep typing. I then have to stop typing and move the OSK to the right or left beyond the right or left edge of the search box, or move it to the very top of the window or very bottom out of the way of the dropdown. This then highlights the text I've already typed, forcing me to click at the end of it or start over (once I've moved the OSK out of it's way). Even if I have search suggestions turned off there is still a dropdown that blocks the OSK (the position/size/length of the search box along the top and the position of the OSK are where I like them bc of my poor vision). The address bar does the same thing. I want to know if there is a way to keep the dropdown search box UNDER the OSK while I'm typing? It's a long question I apologize, but it's a bit wordy to describe. see the photo and I'm sure you'll understand what I'm talking about. The OSK is always set to "Always On Top" in Win 7 prem.

thanks for your helpful reply mark

It load with other browsers by not with Firefox on either of my two computers or with my android.

My XP OS was loading fine this am; but after I updated my Firefox, it stopped loading. Here is my site. http://weareisrael.org/

Is it possible that the new version does not like the plugin called "jQuery Vertical Mega Menu?"

Here is a screenshot of what I am seeing on both my XP and Win 7 computers. And my android looks the same also. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/4289827/Screenshot%202015-05-15%2012.36.30.png

Using my Macbook Pro I accidentally made Ask.com my search page when I opened Firefox last week. I wanted to restore to my original opening page. Trying to delete it seemed impossible so I tried to supercede the page by reverting back to the original with an address bar in the upper left corner and a search bar (Google) in the upper right using mozilla somehow. Unfortunately Mozilla Add-ons page now opens up when I click firefox. These add-ons may be very useful in the future, but I don't to bother with them now. I'd like to now how to delete that page so it doesn't open, and restore what I had before. P.S. I got to it trying to eliminate Ask.com according to instructions....with pictures even. Hard to find for Apple.

This is looking more like a website issue rather than browser problem, but can you tell me whether there might be a Firefox setting that is affecting this behavior? When shopping for yarns online, I often open various color images in separate windows to see which look better together. I've come across a page that won't allow me to do that for many of the images -- instead, the message pops up: > You have chosen to open: > [filename].zoom.1.jpg > which is: Binary File > from: http://cdno1.yarn.com > would you like to save this file? > Cancel / Save File The page is http://www.yarn.com/webs-anniversary-sale-weaving-yarns/webs-weaving-yarns-valley-yarns-rayon-chenille/. To incur the error, I hit ctrl + enter while the cursor is on the hourglass image and then select either Open Link in New Tab (or New Window). Copying the image link and entering it into the URL bar also brings up the same error message for the affected items. I added "yarn.com" and "cdno1.yarn.com" to my list of exceptions to the popup blocker, but that didn't make a difference, nor did opening Firefox in Safe Mode.

I've recently had to erase and reinstall my laptop OS, so I've lost my preferred settings for Firefox and I'm trying to sort out and fix any unexpected behaviors. I'm currently using Mac OS X 10.6.8 and the latest version of Firefox. (I can't seem to access that information in Safe Mode, but 38.0 sounds about right.)

Any help is appreciated.

I was browsing and one of the tabs stopped working. I couldn't close it or do anything w/ it except view it. The other tabs and window seemed ok. I had quite a few pinned tabs and am using the group your tags feature. Eventually I gave up and closed the windows. (the one w/ the pinned tabs I closed last) When I opened firefox again, it opened a whole bunch of "New Tabs" and I can't restore the session since it thinks it retained the session. My guess is that the group tabs functionality is bugged, especially since it seems you can't turn it off and it won't release the session.

Updating Adobe Reader, Shockwave Flash, and Java used to be so easy....until about a year ago. Now, I hate when I run the Firefox Plugin Check, only to see UPDATE. I seem to be able to download ("initializing") the app, but when I go to INSTALL (I hope I have the right words), it says CONNECTION FAILED. TRY AGAIN. CONNECTION FAILED. CLICK THE FINISH BUTTON TO RESTART THE INSTALL PROCESS. This has become a unending cycle. I have contacted my internet provider (and gone through their restart process) I am connection to the Internet. I have disabled my anti-virus prgm and my Firewall; nothing seems to help. The last time I was able to actually INSTALL any of the above programs/apps, I did so with the help of "Troubleshooting when using Firefox"...and that let me download the,...but I can't find a selection like that now....which is why I am writing to Firefox/Mozilla. I have been using Firefox for about 5-6 years now, and I love it! Except for these problems. I am not a dummie, but not a geek either...I just need some help.
