IN FF28 it was possible to detach the refresh button from the address bar, but now the whole address bar is just one element. I am really used to have the button on the left side and not on the right side of the screen. I would love to have the opportunity back again to separate them!

Best, Robin

I know that firefox once put the tabs on top, but I had that fixed with setting in "about:config" the value for "browser.tabs.onTop" to "false". Now, after upgrading Firefox to v.29 this entry is still set to the false value, however, I can't get the tabs below the adressbar (which is super annoying). Any ideas how to resolve this?

Sorry guys, i am disgusted with this upgrade. 29 does not seem like a good ui update at all. The menu bar looks really bad and so does the tab. Furthermore this does not solve my other tab issue i have either in another question i have asked.

How can i revert back to my last version with all my tabs/windows/history restored? I will do a system restore if i have to and then cancel all automatic updates. I honestly dont care if it gives me a bigger security risk.

The problem I have with Firefox is that when I log in to one of my email services (I use two different ones). In the past when I opened the log-in page my login and password (saved in FF) were already filled in so I just had to click "log in" button - it still is that way on the other email service. I had it set up this way for years, since many FF versions back (I have automatic updates on in FF so it is always up to date). Recently I was changing my passwords and I got confused when updating saved password so I decided to delete saved passwords for one of the email services and just logged in typing the password in manually and clicked 'save password' when FF password manager asked me. From that point on when I open the log in page from my bookmarks, the details are not there anymore, so I have to click on 'username' field to get the autocomplete list, choose my login name (there is only one) and then the password gets filled in and I can log in, so it's not the issue of password not being saved or filled in for my login but the fact that these details are not filled in from the point I open the login page from bookmarks, like it used to be and like it still is with the other service (for which I didn't delete and re-save password).. Now this might not be a big deal you might think but it is really annoying that I have to do extra step just to log in to my email especially that I log in to it frequently during the day and that I like things to work the way they are supposed to. I have tried removing cookies for that website, deleting and re-saving the bookmark (with fields already filled with details), deleting all saved password for that website and saving it again and nothing seemed to help. I will appreciate any help if anyone has the solution. Please do not suggest alternatives like using add-ons or using email client etc.

For instance, before the upgrade, I used to log into jud.ct.gov. The hyperlinks to various publications and websites internal to jud.ct.gov used to appear in red so that I could easily see and select the one I wanted. Now they appear in white and I cannot see them unless I hover the mouse over the item. At that point it turns red so I can see which link to click.

There were two upgrades very close together. I upgraded and now have 29.0. No matter whether I'm going to an address, typing into a box, or waiting for a website to load, the Mac "beach ball" will spin for a few seconds before loading. I use the default theme. I have minimal - (Xmarks and Trend micro), which weren't a problem before. Is there something I can do besides disabling the add-ons?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I leave a large number of tabs open, about 50, and firefox has yet to crash while I'm actively using it since the update but I have consistently returned from work or sleep to find a the crash reporter open. I wish I could troubleshoot precisely what it was via the text in the reporter, but I don't know what I'm looking for in the text provided by it. This has happened consistently for the past several weeks now.

I've updated my plugins, addons, drivers, windows, firefox. Have yet to run memtest, but I'm hoping the problem is an easy resolution besides that.

I appreciate all the help.

Prior to upgrading to Firefox 29, I was able to restore closed browser tabs by using the Ctrl+Shift+T combination. Since upgrading, however, I seem to be unable to do so. Even right-clicking on a tab and selecting "Undo Close Tab" fails to work.

Is this a bug? Have you changed the way this is accomplished? Or has that functionality been removed?

I'm running Windows 8.1 and was using Firefox seamlessly. Since the upgrade to Firefox 29, it keeps experiencing " Firefox is already running" errors. I then have to end it in task manager to launch it. I've deleted the parent.lock several times with no luck. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox several times with no luck. I'm using Windows firewall and Avast Antivirus. I even uninstalled Avast temporarily, in case it was causing problems, no change. I have Firefox on my daughter computer and it's been upgraded to Firefox 29 as well. Her computer is running Windows 7 and experiencing no problems. Please help, I've resorted to using IE11. I don't like chrome, opera, etc and want to return to Firefox.

I am unable to access my browsing history to more than one month. I used to be able to access to more than six months.

I went to tools and set it to remember history, and went to "about:config" and changed "browser.sessionhistory.max_entries" to 5000, still does not keep more than one month.

How to keep browsing history to longer than one month, up to one year or more?

I hate icons. I'm not an ancient Egyptian. The invention of the alphabet is what allowed civilization to be what it is today.

1) How do I make the icons bigger -- they are miniscule & I can't distinguish one from the other, even if I knew what the stupid symbol is supposed to mean.

2) How do I get text that is LARGE ENOUGH TO READ when I Hover over an Icon? Note that my Minimum Font Size for web page display is 24 Point. I need that on all of the text which the Foxfile "application" shows me as well.

3) How do I eliminate the icons altogether and instead get a drop-down menu (in 24 Point type) in English?

I saw the utter uselessness of version 29, removing many of the useful buttons etc. Once I saw it I pretty quickly went back up to v 28, a useful version. Since then it has gone back to v 29 4 times, despite being set to never update itself, precisely to avoid it doing this. Frankly this is a virus like behaviour. If the v29 was actually an improvement over 28 I would have updated to it, but it is crap so I do not want it. I have set everything to stop it updating and it just keeps updating itself to this useless version, probably going to have to go to pale moon now, a browser which seems to actually work and do what it is told.

I have downloaded a second flash player and it is still the same. Firefox has been crashing daily for a few weeks. I noticed that your adblocker plus was updated 6/4. Since then I have almost no use of firefox, because the Adobe flash player 13.0.r0 and Shockwave crash notices are constantly popping up. Could that update have something to do with why the flash players are not working? Below are an example of the crash details. Thanks for the help. I prefer your browser, but this has made it non-functioning.

In trying to fix it, a window came up that asked would I like to change it back to a previous working image, which was Windows XP. Although this computer is Windows 7, I clicked the box yes, and said I wanted it to work like Windows XP. I see in your Operating System below, that it reads Windows Xp, but this computer is actually Windows 7. I can't find that menu to change unclick and change it back, so that it is working as Windows 7.

Cannot stop https from loading on browser on my.yahoo.com homepage. Homepage loads but will not allow access to any yahoo sites (mail, weather, finance, etc.) but I can access news, etc from other sources from the homepage. have tried disabling add-ons, reverting to previous firefox 29.0.1 from 30, manually correcting the address, nothing works. The issue seems to be limited to the yahoo homepage, but I have no idea why, and cannot access any yahoo sites (because of the problem) to try to get info from them.

The message I get is "this connection is untrusted" when I look further, it says "invalid security certificate", but I'm sure that's because browser is requesting a secure connection in the first place.

Any help would be appreciated.
