When I updated from 14.1?? UP to 15. My pages load slower. BEFORE update. Pages were fast, Have tried against Opera AND Internet Explorer. Both of those load like Firefox USE to. I have tried resetting,tweaking and reinstalling. Same issue. Is there a way to go back to 14? Or can I make 15 better? Like I said. SAME pages with other browsers load at least 30-40% faster.

When Firefox updated to FF 15, it did not show Kaspersky Safe Money extension as being incompatible. However, I cannot get it to work in FF 15 and when I try, it generates 'an unknown software exception 0xc0000417..' error message. Kaspersky itself, lists Safe Money as being fine up to FF 12.x and sure enough when I rolled FF 15 back to FF 12, it did work. It also works fine in IE 8. I have emailed Kaspersky Customer Support to confirm if it is in fact incompatible and if it is, will it soon be made compatible with higher versions of Firefox. Anyone else have this problem? At the rate Firefox seems to update, it is a wonder that any add-ons are able to keep up!

We use activenet.com here at our local recreation center to check people in for memberships. We use IE in the past, but the newer version is so slow. We switched to Firefox and it works great as far as speed. Only one issue with it though now. If it sits idle for about 10 to 15 minutes and you try to type someone in, an error comes up that says "Session has expired. Login to continue" You click "ok" and it doesn't log you out of the website, but it does take you back to the main screen and doesn't check that individual into the software. Any way to make it so Firefox doesn't log you out of the session so quick?

Hey! Many times I opened facebook to find it blank(a white page with only text - such as facebook, find friends etc.). In addition, I never see the boxes on the left(profile pics of friends) of the page from which you can access the chat(not the right bar!!!)

How can I fix these problem?

Please note that I already tried to disable all my addons.

How do I get back the functionality for the alphabetical drop down from my previous searches in the center Google search box of the Mozilla Firefox Start Page?

In the afternoon of August 24 I lost a feature on my Mozilla Firefox Start Page and I cannot figure out how to get it back. It concerns the Google Search area in the MIDDLE of the page. Previously, when I would want to do a search, for example Amazon, I would type the letter 'A' and, because I had typed 'Amazon' in that Search box before, an alphabetical drop-down menu would come up with 'Amazon' in it. I could then click on that word without having to type the rest of it. That option is no longer working.

I had done an Adobe Reader update that Friday morning, so I thought that might be why this happened,. I did a System Restore and took the system back to Tuesday, August 21. That did not help.

I ran CCleaner and cleaned the Registry also. Interestingly enough, I found that right after I do that and then open a Mozilla Firefox Start Page, the alphabetical drop down function is back in the center Search bar for one time, one search. After that it is gone again. I go in and do just CCleaner (no Registry cleaning required) and the same thing happens...the functionality is there for one search only.

I went in and made sure all my Add-ons/Plug-ins are up to date. I also ran a full system scan but no issues came up.

I am computer illiterate, so please bear with me. I have no idea if any of the things I tried would have helped or not.

I have Windows 7 and Firefox 15.0.1

I appreciate any help you can provide.

This probably relates more to features than to problems, but thought I'd start here.

When using a search engine (my personal favorite is multi-engine DogPile, URL below), typically there's a number of pages of results. At the bottom of each page there's a limited number of page-number links and one for "next" (possibly also one for "previous").

This may well depend on the specific page coding used on the site. But is there any shortcut that will work most places for activating the "next" link without actually scrolling to it?

After upgrading to Firefox 15.0.1, my yahoo home page no longer fits the screen. All of the information is there, but the format is not correct, and the page is way too large for the screen.

I can reduce the size of the page on the screen, but the fonts and spacing are still wrong. The page displays properly on Chrome.

Using a MAC and just "upgraded" to Firefox 15.0.1. Previously, I was able to quickly select a website frequently used, such as facebook, simply by selecting the drop down arrow at the far right end of the URL line. Now when I select the drop down arrow or attempt to "star" a website, it simply blinks at me but doesn't drop down to display the previously and frequented sites for selection.

When I open FF, it used to go to google. Now, I just get a blank page with the tab that says, "New Tab". When I click on the home button (suppose to go to google), it will change to "connecting..." for half a second but remain on the blank page returning to "New Tab". It is set to not use a proxy as it should be. It is not set to work offline. I do not have a firewall preventing it from accessing the internet. IE works and I have no problems there.
