I'm using Windows 7 and have the firefox browser. I got prompted to update flash player to the newest verion 17. (yadda yadda) .169. I downloaded the update. installed no problem but come to find out now whenever i try to go on youtube my videos play but they are extremely glitchy, pixelated and then after a bit my entire computer crashes.

I've tried all the website suggested fixes i.e uninstalled and reinstalled flashplayer. Reinstalled a previous version. Reset firefox to clear out any add-ons or extensions i did. Nothing has worked!

I was very used to have F9 on every platform to open|close the sidebar. As I am a keyboard people, the clicking on the Sidebar icon is not a perfect solution. You had the shortcut and now it's gone.

I respectfully ask for it back.

No troubleshooting info is required, because it's not a failure.

The problem started when I got back from travel about 4 days ago. I was gone for two weeks and used my tablet when on travel. Now whenever I try firefox on desktop PC, it runs very slowly and almost all websites will return the following error message: "The requested URL could not be retrieved" - I had to try half a day before I could finally get to the mozilla support page and refresh. That worked for a short time - but the next day, the same problem - so I refreshed again - worked for a short time, and then the same problem. Today - it didn't work at all - It took a half a day to get mozilla support to work again - but no other websites are currently accessible. My desktop uses Window 7

Hi

I always have "Clear history when Firefox closes" checked. But since a few days it doesn't work. I close Firefox, then restart it, hit Ctrl+H and see that the history is still there. When I hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete and click OK(in Clear Recent History window) it works, it deletes the history but it doesn't delete user names even though I have everything checked in that window.

I hope that's a detailed description. English is not my first language, if you don't understand anything I said, please tell me.

My last update was 4/21. Since then my tabs are disappearing from view when I open multiple pages. If I move my cursor to the top of the page, they reappear. I am wondering if this was part of the update? It temporarily allows you to view a bit more of the page I am viewing, but if this is supposed to be an advantage...it is NOT. I like to be able to see what tabs I have open and not have to scroll to the top of the page every time. Please help me correct or change this...thank you.

Ever since Firefox made Youtube videos only play in HTML5, no matter what quality setting I have on the video I'm watching, when I view the video on fullscreen it has low framerate. This problem does not happen with other video sites that uses Flash, like Twitch, Blip, or Dailymotion.

Is it software related to the browser or hardware related with it being HTML5?

When using Firefox—and wanting to print the article, Click File, Print Preview and you'll see the HEADER and FOOTER jammed against the TOP and BOTTOM of the page. Typically these headers and footers drop off the page when printed. Using "Page Setup", I can adjust the top and bottom MARGINS, but that DOES NOT adjust where the HEADER AND FOOTER ARE PLACED! Frustrating.

SO, how do I adjust the placement of the HEADER and FOOTER? Their placement is NOT an issue on Google Chrome, so this appears to be browser related.

Thanks

This is my first time asking a questions, so I may not be doing it quite right. Anyway, after downloading the update to 37.0.1, viewing pdfs became different. I now get a separate download window (which I didn't get before) and when I go to the downloaded pdf file, I now have to answer several questions before I'm able to get the Reader to run. I believe pdfs used to just open up automatically in a new tab without having to do anything. Is there a way to restore that behavior? Thanks for your help.

Is there a way to do this. Many legitimate downloads are blocked by this behaviour.

Why isn't the download stopped the moment it is initiated? (spend hours downloading legitimate files and documents only to realize firefox deletes them without any user intervention) and why is there no option to recover the download?


So far the only way to fix this issue seems to be:

a) use a different browser b) systematically lower the security settings for the browser to download a file then re-enable the options (browser.safebrowsing.enabled and browser.safebrowsing.malware.enabled)

Thank you for your time.

This morning, there was a message that firefox needed to be updated. Since I don't like (or use) Google Chrome or IE, I unchecked those options as part of the update. Once the update was completed, all of my bookmarks and folders were gone. Is there ANY way to either recover the missing items OR restore/roll back to the firefox browser I was already using?

I'm a web developer, and I've been working on creating a site ( http://mythicalslab.x10host.com/ ). On the site I have some javascript that handles displaying a div with a loading animation on it. In script html tags, I have two function defined, hideLoading() and showLoading() which respectively show and hide the loading animation.

If I go into the Javascript console in Firefox, and either type hideLoading() or showLoading(), the console says "undefined", but it still runs the function correctly.

If you want to check this put for yourself, go to my homepage ( http://mythicalslab.x10host.com/ ) and type showLoading() in the dev console, and you'll see it will run the function and show the loading animation, while saying it is undefined.

Every time I try to log in to my bank's secure website with Firefox at https://www.huntington.com/ I get a grey triangle icon with exclamation point and the message when I hover over is "This website does not provide identity information". But when I open the same website in Internet Explorer there is no warning and it shows as being fully secured. The same thing happens intermittently when I browse to ebay's secure log in.

I'm running Firefox 37.0.2 on a Mac 10.9.5. The search tab was there when I first started to try to get rid of yahoo and have google as my default search on the tool bar, but now Search won't show its own content. If I click on "general" first, for example and then click on "search", none of the information on the Search tab changes - it is as if it is still General. If I click on applications, and then search, search will show the same information as is under applications - and so on. Another tab that acts the same is "Tab", therefore both Search and Tab aren't functioning.

Thanks for the help,

It seems the ability to set the number of months (or weeks) for history data that will be remembered is absent from the history section of Firefox options. Is there a more indirect way to set how much History Firefox will remember, perhaps from about:config or so?

And secondarily, how much history *does* Firefox remember when I check "remember history"? I cannot find where that is specified. I assumed it remembered every site I've ever visited, but looking back in the "Older than 6 months" folder in History, I see that is not the case. There are only a few dozen sites there, while there should be hundreds (since I think I have never deleted History for about 2 years).
