Whenever I go to download a file, the 'do this automatically for files like this from now on' box is greyed out. I have scoured the internet looking for a solution and just about every one of them is either severely outdated or does not fix my problem. I have reset my Firefox more than I can count and yet it does not seem to fix my problem. It used to work just fine, but it no longer does and it is very annoying and frustrating. I have even tried to completely uninstall it and reinstall it to my computer and that doesn't fix anything.

Is there any sort of way to fix this problem? Firefox is my browser of choice and I'd prefer not to have to start using another one. I know it may seem trivial because it's just one extra step, but when you're doing it a bunch of times in a row like I do, it can get quite bothersome.

Thank you.

Hi! I use your awesome browser as my #1 browser. Since the most recent update, however, I can not see content on Facebook that was available (and works on all other browsers).

Here is a link where you can see it working on all other broswers but not FF:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Gables-Inn/91848818163?id=91848818163&sk=app_243138959111822

It in an iFrame FYI.

I have developed over 3000 FB pages and now they only work in the other browsers. I have gotten most of my clients to instal FF so this is an even bigger issue. I am out of ideas. Please let me know if its me or what to do to make it work.

Thank you so much!!!!

On average, every 30 minutes or so when I open a new tab or refresh a current tab, the page is completely distorted, links or text missing, and other various caching issues. WHy does this happen so often? It is very annoying that I have to manually clear my cache every 30 minutes.... if I get up to eat dinner or watch a show or any other number of things... when I return my browser does not cache pages properly and I have to manually clear it every time.

This happened to me in the past and eventually went away... but after I upgraded the browser, it began doing this again. I am having to resort to using Internet Explorer against my wishes just so that I am not annoyed by this. How can this be fixed for good?

I often want to print exactly what's shown on the current page. But some websites apparently intercept the print command and rearrange or completely reformat the content according to what they "know better" you need. Google Maps does this. Is there a way to avoid this and print exactly how it's currently laid out?

In the last couple of weeks, I noticed that when I had multiple tabs open--e.g. 4 or more, here is what happens:

1-when I am typing (even now as I type this), the cursor frequently stops for a few seconds and that blue circling symbol shows up and it says Mozilla Firefox (not responding). This processes for a few seconds and then it stops. This keeps happening ongoing every time I am typing! it can be very annoying and frustrating and hard to get any online work done...e.g. ordering a product, trying to scroll through and read an article online, etc.

2-I have tried closing out the whole program and all the tabs and starting over again with creating new tabs and it happens again.

3-The only time it stopped is when Firefox crashed a few weeks ago and I submitted a crash report, and it went away for a time, and then it started happening again out of the blue.

I use Windows 7, and use Firefox version 23.0.1

If you have any questions that I can answer to help you diagnose the problem, please ask.

thanking you in advance for your help in resolving this.

I really like Firefox, but one thing I want to change is the behaviour of the address bar dropdown - where it shows previous sites I've visited. I'm looking for a way to list these in date order - so the most recently visited site is at the top. i.e. How it is in IE!

Is that possible? I'm happy to go in and change any settings or install whichever addons I need to do this.

Also, sometimes a key is shown before the lock. I'm wondering if they have anything to do with my real problem, which is a sudden (1 - 2 weeks ago) inability to sign out from my Facebook account?

One other problem starting at about the time is the occurrence of yellow shading behind the toolbar.

Thanks for any clues that might help.

Shortcuts on my desktop (or other folders) and web page links in my Outlook contacts sometimes load immediately, sometimes they take a couple of minutes to load. However, if I copy the URL in the shortcut properties or in the Outlook contact and just paste it into Firefox, the page loads immediately. I have worked around this issue by bookmarking pages within Firefox, but I have dozens of web pages entered in my Outlook contacts and having to copy and paste those URLs into Firefox is tedious at best. This does not appear to be an issue with Internet Explorer, but I got so tired of all the ads that I made Firefox my default browser and installed AdBlock. My Firefox version is 23.0.1. Any ideas that don't require me to be a computer genius would be appreciated.

When I open a new tab, instead of my home page (google.com) I get a bing search page. I do not get the "top sites" as I do on my other computers. I have checked them to see if I could mimic, but no luck. In the article about removing unwanted pages, the article shows a screen shot of a button in the shape of a square with little dots making the square shape. The article says to click that button and then reset my tab. My new tab pages do not have that button. It shows the down arrow for downloads and the home button for home page. I've looked in the add-on manager and the bing toolbar is not there. I've also gone through the Tools/Options and can find nothing there to get rid of the bing toolbar. My homepage is set to google.com in the options. Also followed the steps for about:config and after making the change, new tabs still come up with bing (and its ads). What do I do to get my home page to display? Thanks

How do I tell Firefox that, or where, PHP exists, and to execute script? I installed PHP 5.3 as per msVista (basic) instructions on php.org to C:\Program Files\PHP\ and it works if I open cmd on the command line : C:\Program Files\PHP>php -a Interactive mode enabled ^Z and scripts in tags work properly.

However opening a page or file such as test.php containing valid script with Firefox 23.0.1 fails to interpret the script and just displays the uninterpreted source code as if it were text. I found that because C:\Program Files\PHP\ contains a space in the pathname the path needs to be enclosed within quotes "C:\Program Files\PHP\" [smacks forhead: shoulda installed to C:\PHP\ ] to be recognized. Is that the problem, and where do I make the change?

The above. When I opened a new tab in the past, before the new update, firefox would automatically highlight the text in the address bar, and I could simply start typing from there the address of the site I wanted. I could quickly get to anywhere I wanted in less than a second. Now, I have to drag and click into the address bar every time. I installed an add-on called "custom newtab" but it just slows me down further due to a lag between the opening of a new tab, and the add-on kicking in and highlighting the address bar content. What happens is this: Click "new tab" New tab opens blank and the text appears highlighted "google.co.uk" for about a quarter second. Page loads Google and the highlighted text becomes unhighlighted for another quarter second. Add-on kicks in and highlights the text "google.co.uk" meanwhile I've already begun typing and end up losing the first part of the words, sending me to random web pages and searches.

Why did this change?! Fix it please!
