Hi,

As stated in title, since upgrading Firefox to the latest version, when I press Ctrl+C it closes the tab I'm on instead of copying text. It can be text from a website or text from an email i'm writing. Estremely frustrating, as I've come to the habit of copying the text of an email I'm sending using Yahoo Mail before sending in case it doesn't send properly and gets lost!!!

Also, I usually pressed Ctrl+F to search for a specific piece of text on a website, but this simply doesn't work. Any ideas?

I use the Welsh language version of Firefox, and the same problem occurs on both my home laptop and work PC.

Since upgrading to Firefox 13.0, once you hover over the thumbnails a few times.. the original/main image disappears and when I click on the link which has replaced the image, I get an error: The image cannot be displayed because it contains errors.

However, if I go to the page, open the image in a new tab *before* I start hovering over the thumbnails--the image appears just fine. Then I can hover over the thumbnails, the main image disappears and then I click on the link.. and I get the error.

I have examined both image paths and everything is exactly the same.

This happens on my Mac and Windows machine, but only in Firefox 13.0.

I have followed all the instructions found here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Images_or_animations_do_not_load with no luck.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?


Note: The url provided is just an example--I am able to get it to error out on other product pages--however, it isn't *always* the main image that errors out... sometimes it is one of the thumbnail images. But each time, those images *have* loaded at least once before they error out.

We are developing a test framework in the the test directory.

Some other folders contain a soft link (ln -s) to file test.html inside the test directory.

In previous versions when dragging the link to the browser ,it wasn't resolved. In that way we could scope test.html to the files in that module.

Now, the file protocol always points to the test dir.

Is there any way to prevent firefox from following the symlinks any longer?

I updated to the latest versions of Firefox and Flash player. Since then I have had problems with videos in YouTube. However, there is a fix. This worked for me.

Open a video in Firefox from YouTube. Right click the video and there should be a popup. Notice that it mentions a HTML5 trial. This is the culprit. Down in the corner of this, there is a section that says something like 'remove me from the HTML5 trial'. Click this. It will then revert back to the original flash settings and the videos will run very well, just like they used to.

I held off from upgrading from the last version that had (amongst other things) the tabs *below* the Bookmark Toolbar.

NOTE: I finally changed for *TWO* reasons: one sites like Google and Yahoo hounding me that my version of Firefox was brain dead and wouldn't let me do much, and once we hit v12 of Firefox I started getting 'crash, failure to close properly' notices every time I exited Firefox... like the last patch to what I was running added this harrasment.

Now I have my tabs under the menu bar (more convenient? no) The 'right click' menu "Open in Window' and 'Open in Tab' reversed (ever hear of Muscle Memory?) When I close the only open window - and it has multiple tabs - those tabs do *NOT* reopen when I restart firefox.

How about giving me a *choice* where my tabs go? I mean just because some other browser moved them and a couple of magazines went "oh my, that gets me sooo excited" you go and make the same stupid changes to a great product. Why oh why move stuff around that was working perfectly like the order of options on menus.

I really wish there was some survey performed before making these changes, at least giving every firefox user the chance to speak up. Instead now the browser I have stood by since the days of the Netscape suit I really feel I must abandon it as it's developers abandoned me for some crazed notions... and go t Safari.

One thing about Safari you never even bothered with.. when I open a new tab, I get my homepage.. not a blank page. It had privacy when browsing before Firefox along with many other things (at least you let me keep the tab bar open even if I have only one tab up... a minor victory for you.. *golf clap*).

Really this is like Microsoft blindly shoving their fantastic (not) ribbon toolbar down everyone's throat. A truly horrible idea that destroy a great program, and which sent me buying THREE addtional copies of Office 2003/XP just to have the serial numbers and installs.

I am using version 13.0.1. The page below has instructions on how to reset Firefox. http://blog.mozilla.org/theden/2012/06/13/resetfirefox/

It says to go to "Troubleshooting Information" under the Help menu and that there will be a button to push called "Reset Firefox." But when I go to the Troubleshooting Information page there is no Reset Firefox button. I tried it on a few different computers and it is always the same.

Do you know where I can find it?

However, when I pause the video, click to a different tab or different window, the volume control works again. Clicking elsewhere on the same tab while the video is playing does nothing. Chrome is working fine too.Thus, I suspect that Firefox is the culprit.

Specifically, the problem is this. When using a Flash player (audio or video) on any web page, while doing activity in another tab or window on the same browser, the sound or video stutters and chops up. Like, just mousing over links in a webpage will cause the sound to jump and stutter in time with the mouse actions. Happens with embedded audio players and video players alike. Really annoying. I reverted to an older Flash version a couple weeks ago and that fixed the issue.

I also posted about this in the Adobe Flash forum, since the problem arose when updating to the latest Flash Player version. I suppose the problem is more on the Flash end than in Firefox... though the new Flash update works well in Chrome and Safari and IE.

As someone who deals with video media on the web quite often, this handicap inherent in Firefox is a fairly big and ridiculously obvious problem. When, if ever, will it be resolved? If Firefox wasn't such a popularly used browser, this issue wouldn't be as much of a concern, but people are using Firefox quite a bit on-line. It seems very strange to me that this otherwise excellent browser from Mozilla can't play back a simple MP4 file in HTML 5.

"Firefox doesn't support MP4 and 3GP due to their patent-encumbered nature."

Is there a way of resolving that at any point? If not, is there a reliable format that I should switch to instead of MP4, like Flash? I'm aware that there are plugins available to make Firefox "see" MP4 files, but asking customers to download and install a plugin is not really a professional solution. Please advise! Thank you.

Ok, I was basically still working the adobe flash player issue, and I stumbled across some speed test info. So I decided to play Firefox 13.0.1 off against IE9. Same PC, procedure, start Firefox, run speed test, shut down Firefox, open IE9, run test again at same site, same PC, same internet connection, yada yada. This blew me away, and I tested on 2 sites, speedtest.org and speedtest.net. Oh yeah, using Charter cable internet, Charter cable modem, direct wire connection to router on this PC.

Results: IE9 - download 52.7Mbps, upload 3.6Mbps; Firefox 13.0.1 - download 1.6 Mbps, upload 2.1 Mbps !!!! Geeze, what is up with this thing???!!!! And it's repeatable, over and over and over. No wonder video via Firefox sucks! (pardon the expletive)

I'm just a simple 65 year old, I just want stuff to work, and this just seems ludicrous, almost like it can't be true, but the 2 speed test sites compare closely to each other, with both browsers under test.

In addition, video via IE9 is super, regardless of source, my Netflix "experience" via PS3 is superb, and also VUDU via my Mits, which pegs it's speedtest.

My only conclusion is there is something wrong with Firefox, at the core, and it seems to me to be with this version, I just don't remember this stuff before.
