Recently, my desktop, (uses win 7 home prem) got corrupted. I got that straightened out only to find that when i tried to use Firefox, all I got was a big white screen. Tool bars became unreachable, the only way to get out was the old "control+alt+delete". I do know that it was ver. 40.3. I could not resolve problem any other way so thought, "delete and re-install !!!". NOT so.

I HATE i-net explorer, but desperation had set in.....no luck....would not even d'load mozilla from the firefox site. BUT!! there is Google Chrome!!! nope....could not get that to work at all. (It WAS an old copy).

Now I am trying to use my lap-top (just upgraded itself to win 10) to d'load a usable copy for the desktop (win 7), but cannot seem to find a "VER 40.3 for that win version. HELP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whenever I try to log into any blogspot site, instead of the normal options to continue on, I get a completely white, blank, page. When I go to these site on any other browser, it will work perfectly.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi,

My Pocket icon does not work. It has worked in the past, but I haven't used it for a while. Now when I click on it to save a page, I just get a list of things I've saved previously. Instead of getting "Save to Pocket" as other posts have said I should, it acts like "View Pocket List", which I understand is supposed to be under the bookmark icon (and no Pocket items are listed there).

The tooltip for the Pocket item says "Read Something" (whether I hover over the item itself or the arrow to the right), and no matter where I click, I just get a reading list.

I just discovered that the Pocket extension has been replaced by an integrated feature in Firefox. I opened the extension list and disabled Pocket. It is no longer in the list, nor do I see it in "Additional Tools and Features" under "Customize". The icon is still there in the toolbar, though, just as it was when the extension was enabled, and it still behaves the same way, just giving me "Read Something" and not letting me save.

Can someone help me so I can use my Pocket icon again?

Thank you

I have following HTML code which creates a dialog box when clicking the button.

On first click there is a horizontal scrollbar, however text is still readable, however if you click the button second time, the text is hidden under scrollbar.

How do you fix this?


<script type="text/javascript"> function clicker() { alert('SomeLongMessageWithoutSpacesInIt_SomeLongMessageWithoutSpacesInItSomeLongMessageWithoutSpacesInIt_SomeLongMessageWithoutSpacesInIt\n' + 'SomeLongMessageWithoutSpacesInIt_SomeLongMessageWithoutSpacesInItSomeLongMessageWithoutSpacesInIt_SomeLongMessageWithoutSpacesInIt\n' ) } </script> <input onclick="clicker()" type="button" value="click">

WE always use eff.org's https.everywhere in order to keep our computer extra safe. The newest Firefox update will NOT allow me to use it anymore. With all the nasty stuff that's out there dead set on ruining computers, why on earth did they do this? Do I need to be wary of my previously beloved Firefox as well?

I have firefox set to re-show my tabs from last time when I restart it. However, when I close and restart, the first tab is always empty. If I choose 'view source', the file is empty. Refreshing or shift-refreshing the tab does not cause it to load. I can copy the url and paste it into a new tab and that will load fine.

This wouldn't be too annoying, except it also happens with about:sessionrestore, and when I open it in a new tab, it doesn't show any tabs to restore.

This is new and no changes have been made to my computer. I have used CompuServe and FireFox for about a decade with no complants. I have been viewing ViralNova for a couple of years with no problems until this last couple of weeks. What can I do to fix this? Your site said my version was up to date.
