pages such as (http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/programs/Molbio/Program/Pages/Program.aspx) have huge gaps at the top and overlapping letters in other places. I have updated firefox as much as possible (34.0.5). Most other pages behave normally but the uc denver sites look normal on Safari.

Under about:preferences#security, you can choose what sites can download add-ons without you needing to allow it thru the Exceptions button by Warn Me When Sites Try To Install Add-ons

The defaults are; marketplace.firefox.com and addons.mozilla.org

But every time Firefox is restarted, this list is deleted. Even resetting Firefox does not fix this. I deleted the prefs.js file, but no joy. I checked, and found this enter in the file, but it will not display when Firefox is started.

dom.mozApps.signed_apps_installable_from;https://marketplace.firefox.com

I even downgraded from Firefox 34.0.5 to 33.1.1 but the issue is still there.

As far as I can tell, this is the only setting that is having trouble.

I don't know what details are needed so I'll just rattle off anything that I can think of.

I am running an Asus laptop with windows 7. I have never had an issue with firefox in the past (beyond the usual freezing and some obvious issues with pop up ads that are par for the course with firefox since adblocker never does what it says.... not really. Lets be honest.) I am using Avast for my virus protection and it is also up to date.

My issue started about an hour ago when firefox stopped responding. The video I had playing kept going but I could not interact with anything. Assuming the program froze for the billionth time that week I rebooted it. This has always solved freezing issues in the past. Now, however, firefox is doing something new.

I can access the menus and almost everything on the window itself except for the minimize/maximize/close buttons, I cannot move the window at all, and I cannot manually resize it. I have also noticed that although videos will play, I can only click on their buttons if there is another smaller window overtop of firefox. The video controls will only appear that way and when I click them firefox naturally comes to the front and the video responds with the button I used but the buttons are gone again and I cannot resume playing without the smaller window back in front to make the buttons show again.

It's as if half of firefox is frozen while the other half is still running somehow.

I have no themes that could be causing this. Literally none. I only use firefox for the things that can no longer be opened in Opera so I have no need for any theme beyond default. The only addons I installed on purpose were adblockers (lord knows why. they don't DO anything.) though several other random things seem to have been installed over time to aid in one thing or another. Various plugins and players and versions of java, that sort of thing. But I have everything (and i mean EVERYTHING) in the addon menu disabled. I have tried booting it up in safe mode (the program, not windows) and the problem is still there except now it won't show the menu bar at all unless I press the alt key first and even then it wont let me actually click on anything in the menu bar. When I try the whole bar vanishes. I had to close firefox with the task manager. Rebooting will fix the issue for about 15 seconds before it all comes back. Any attempts at updating have failed as it says I am already up to date on everything so I don't know what its issue is.

It's not an urgent issue right now as most of what i need to do can be done on the half screen window I am using, but some of my sites have buttons that literally vanish in anything but full screen and I imagine that this will be a much greater annoyance within a few days.

Hi,

This morning I have experienced problems using several websites through Firefox. All these websites seem to work fine through IE and Chrome. I have attempted some basic maintenances (rebooting, virus scan, clearing caches) but the problem persists:

Issues include:

Twitch TV: Busy symbol. No videos shown Reddit: Cannot post messages. After resetting cache, I can no longer log in Yahoo mail: Can see message list. However when I click on a message to open it, nothing happens, so I cannot read mail Azubu TV: Badly formatted web page

I wonder if this is connected to any of the installations I have performed recently? These include:

About 5 days ago: Installeed Elite Dangerous: Two days ago: Nvidia driver update Last night: Update to Marvel Heroes. First time I've used it in 6 months. It installed 76 patches. I've posted a query on their support forums here: https://forums.marvelheroes.com/discussion/161083/marvel-heroes-updated-firefox-down

I haven't knowingly installed anything else during the past week, although it's possible applications such as Steam may have performed background updates. i don't know what has caused this issue, but I currently consider my Firefox installation to be broken, and would like to fix it. Any help you could offer would be appreciated.

Upon start up, Firefox unnecessarily asks for my master password every time. My home page (Google Finance) does not require a password. This occurs in safe mode as well. This is annoying and time wasting. I have to X-out the master password request window about 10 seconds after I start Firefox. Why does it do this? ... Firefox did not used to do this.

Today Firefox has been crashing immediately on start-up. Yesterday it was crashing repeatedly after a short while of being opened, and today it won't open at all. I have updated Firefox and the graphics drivers and checked for viruses and malware, but none of this seems to be the problem.

The last few crash details are as follows:

Crash ID: bp-25bdb4d0-800c-4ad5-8344-a5f652141203

Crash ID: bp-d2c57604-e2f3-4deb-91b6-c9c4f2141203

I hope someone can help me with my query.

Many thanks.

No matter what website I am on, when I click on Tools, and then click on Options, Firefox freezes. I cannot refresh, I cannot close the tab, I cannot close the browser session. The session does not close when I click on the Firefox icon in the start tray and click on Close Window. The only way to get the web browser to close is to Ctrl+Alt+Del and end the task (which always shows that it is "Running"). I have waited as long as 5 minutes for the browser to Refresh or Close, and nothing happens.

Ever since Firefox updated to 34.0.5, I have experienced numerous video and audio problems. Initially, I couldn't play videos at all, but installing Shockwave Flash fixed that. Then all of my videos played silently. I updated my plugins (Quicktime and VLC were the only ones asking for an update) which shouldn't have fixed the problem as I do not believe I was actually using those plugins at the time, but nevertheless it seems to have worked. Now I can play videos with sound, but the quality of that sound is severely reduced and even occasionally staticky. What gives?
