Yesterday my Firefox suddenly started showing strange boxes over various parts of every web page. For example, there are black boxes over the scroll bar. When viewing Facebook, there are little squares (black, grey, white) over the scroll bar, the little IM boxes at the bottom of the screen (the ones currently in use), etc. It seems a little better ont he Mozilla Support forum, but not at the bottom of the screen or on the Scroll bar. For the most part I can see most parts of every webpage. The scroll bar still works fine, as does IMing on FB, but the little boxes blink and are very annoying. So far I've tried to restart Firefox, checked to see if it's updated, but alas it's all as it should be. This is not happen when I use MS Word or Powerpoint, Safari, iTunes, other apps. Only with Firefox so I know it's a Firefox issue.

I Have a Macbook Pro 13 inch mid-2010 2.4 GhZ Intel Core Duo processor 4 GB. Running Mac OSX Yosemite. I've also uploaded an image. It's of the scroll bar on the edge of the FB page. I can try to get others if you want to see more examples. The squares tend to flash and change shape, so it's hard to get a good screen capture.

Thanks in advance for you help.

While reading foxnews.com today, I was getting Access Denied messages when I clicked on articles I wanted to read. I have been reading this site for years and this has never occurred before. I closed the browser window and opened another. It wouldn't even let me open fox news but it allows me to open CNN. I am using my personal MacBook Pro at home. No network. What's up with this?

I've seen that there is a Google add-on for Firefox that opts out of Google Analytics. Since I trust Google about as far as I could throw a grand piano, my question is: a) is this add-on safe to use? b) is it necessary, or is there something that I could use that would block Google Analytics as part of its blocking? I do not use Google Search any more and have removed it from Firefox (or does it get re-installed every time I update?). I am a neophyte about computer privacy and am trying to learn.

Problems with Google taking over the browsing when I browse on Firefox's line

I have checked that the settings are as they should be as to your suggestion, and it doesn't solve the problem with Google taking over the browsing, I 'm afraid.

If I can I should like to remove Google permanently from my mac. I find it a bit difficult because I can't see the icon anywhere, which I find very strange. I have tried to seach in finder and elsewhere. I'll try to follow the instructions from a fellow on Youtube and see if I can manage. Can you help?

Hello! I have Windows 8.1 and I’m trying to make changes to my internet options. I can’t see any emotion smileys at all on facebook and I’m using firefox. I have heard that this will help: go into internet options, advanced tab, tick the box at the top that says software rendering instead of gpu.

But when I go to the settings I think my computer thinks I’m using internet explorer even though I have set firefox as my default browser.

I don’t know how I should do to get the settings iI wrote above in firefox. There were not in Firefox -> Tools -> Settings either. Do you know how I should do to make this settings or any other settings that will make me see the smileys again? English is not my mother language so I hope all the words I wrote were right.

Thank you!

HOW do I remove Firefox's "Getting Started" link from my Bookmarks Toolbar? It wastes space & seems invulnerable to removal attempts.

Up front, I'm on a MacBook Air, running Yosemite & using the latest Firefox. If your only interest in my question is to bash Macs, then (yawn) I'm not interested. If your interest is to sincerely help, then you have my interst as well:

I am stuck with a Firefox "Getting Started" link as the very first (far left) "bookmark" on my Bookmark Toolbar that I really want to delete: I've been into Apple computers (starting with the Apple ][e) & online since the mid 80s, so I'm hardly a naif newbie to the digital world or to Firefox, so having a "Getting Started" link in perpetuity is ridiculous, AND I really need the space to accommodate MY choices! So...

I've tried all of Firefox's recommended ways to remove unwanted bookmarks -- BUT, when I pull down the "Show All Bookmarks" command from Bookmarks in the Menu Bar, the "Getting Started" link does NOT exist, so I can't delete it there. I've even tied clicking & dragging it off of the Toolbar, but that doesn't work (nor does doing that plus dragging to the Trash. So, does ANYONE have a clue about this insurgent link???

All I see is a blank box. See this link: http://www.antique-microscopes.com/photos/Grand_model_microscope.htm

It works in Safari, Chrome, and earlier FF versions. I note that if I try to embed from a https site, it does work. Is there a work around for this other than making my site https?

Recently I was exploring all the Firefox features & realized that a new tab should be showing sights I visit often. if I close all my tabs, I do get a page a with my favorite tabs. Should I not be getting this page when I open a new tab? I've checked my about:config and browser.newtab.url is set to about:newtab.

What can I do to get this page to load when open a new tab?

Using Stylish I’ve changed the Bookmark and Bookmark Folder icons in the Firefox toolbar and menu (with base64 coded images), but this doesn’t change the icons in other places:

- the Bookmark Manager - the Bookmark dialogue box - the Bookmark Sidebar

They still use the standard icons. What CSS should I use to change them too?

A long time ago I think I changed my Firefox settings so that when I print a web page, all the links on that that page get printed with their often l-o-n-g URLs. Some pages are really hard to read with about 8 long URLs all over the page.

I've googled around on how to change it, but haven't had any luck.

Can anybody help?

Thanks :-)
