I'm using Firefox 29 on Win7x64. It's my default browser. Sometimes, when I try to open a web link from Outlook email or Yahoo email, the link does not open. Instead, Firefox opens a process every time that I click, but does not open the link or even a page. If I try to open another Firefox instance by clicking the shortcut, yet another process starts, but a page does not open. Safe mode does not help. The only resolution thus far is to close every process or reboot, and then re-install Firefox. This issue began in v29 or the one just before. I also have tried suggestions posted to the forum. Thanks!

Previously with Firefox I could file a new bookmark directly into a new or existing folder. How can I do that with new Firefox??? (without having to save it and then move it later, which I don't see how to do anyway) And how can I organize and edit bookmarks and folders with new Firefox? This was all so easy previously with Firefox. This is a major step backward in user unfriendliness.

Hi Friends, After the recent upgrade to 29.0.1, and having several unwanted changes forced upon me, I installed Classic Theme Restorer plugin, to get my old setup back, MOSTLY. I was able to remove the new menu button, which I'm very happy about.

However, since then, there's a new button on the toolbar which I've removed 3 or 4 times now, and it just keeps coming back. That's the Theme Font and Size Changer plugin button.

What can I do to remove that button from the toolbar, so that it stays away?

I guess I could uninstall that plugin, but probably the changes I made with it will go away.

Thanks for your help  :-)

On every page of my website dominicrouse.com I have a javascript menu designed using Sothink DHTML Menu 9.10

Using IE and other browsers the subtleties that I incorporated display perfectly but in FF they are lost.

I am referring specifically to a slow fade up and down and a background transparency that fits neatly into each page.

Any ideas as to how I fix this?

Many thanks,

DR

In FF 29, I have a need to change the yellow folder icon associated with one or more specific bookmarks folders. I prefer to do this with css, rather than with an extension. Following an example in another thread, I did the following:

Use the troubleshooting menu to open the profile folder. Create a subfolder named "chrome". In "chrome", create a file called "userChrome.css", and insert the text shown below. Copy sample ico, png and gif images to "chrome" for testing. Save and close the css file, and bounce the browser. No results - for example, in Library view. The "My Saved Links" bookmarks subfolder definitely exists. I suspected that I might be doing the URL wrong, trying to access a small image file in "chrome" called "test.png". I've tried 'test.png', '/test.png', and '../test.png' on hunches, though I'm not yet a heavy css user.

Help would be appreciated. The css is as follows:

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

#personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item[container][label="My Saved Links"],
#bookmarksMenuPopup .bookmark-item[container][label="My Saved Links"],
appmenu_bookmarksPopup  .bookmark-item[container][label="My Saved Links"]
{ list-style-image:url('test.png')!important;
 -moz-image-region:auto!important; }

You Tube and other sites are not playing video on Firefox with Adobe Flash after latest update for both. Adobe Flash is working on other sites but not You tube and those sites that may have embedded You Tube videos, I'm not sure.

Adobe Flash does not crash and no error message is showing. All that shows is a dark screen for the Flash video. Right clicking the screen shows only a non-clickable 'Movie not loaded' and the clickable link to the Adobe home page.

I have spent an hour trying things as suggested for past problems similar to this but none have helped.

I have sent sad face letting you know what I think of the latest update because of this which says pretty much the same thing as I have said here.

I have no further info but if I had some input and queries form you I might be able to provide more.

Would someone please tell me how to get rid of the new menu button on the right side of the toolbar?

There doesn't seem to be any option to remove it via the Customize toolbars window.

Thank you very much.

When I download a new add-on via the Mozilla add-on site, the add-on will show up in my add-ons manager, but I cannot use it, because it won't show up on my drop-on menu even though the add-ons manager says that said add-ons are enabled. How do I fix this? Also, I can download add-ons that work fine by visiting websites like amazon or dictionary.com where their add-ons pop up in the menu when you visit.

Hi All, I've had at least one crash per week since Version 29 went live. I'm not too happy, especially since the recent crashes seem to have cost me some time periods of my recent History which I might need for tracing references for my writing.

here is the most recent list of crashes: Report ID Date Submitted bp-02ebfba6-e733-41f2-9961-d8a4e2140606 06/06/2014 10:09 AM There was another crash on the 06/02/2014 but a report was not filed successfully cbc932d9-0337-4108-9676-c047e173b82c 28/05/2014 10:13 PM bp-47b94595-4722-4630-a57c-0cb632140516 16/05/2014 10:14 AM c7fee67b-cbcf-400c-8bb9-bc1c7359afe8 13/05/2014 8:58 AM af662bb7-faf3-4718-9761-afc21505f5af 08/05/2014 3:53 PM bp-96925417-695c-4345-a9fd-d42202140503 04/05/2014 7:32 AM bp-c75a4b9d-3d41-4a5b-ae43-4cc132140321 22/03/2014 9:47 AM be7a4d32-a2b6-4703-8ad5-0e3801fc0126 06/02/2014 2:18 PM

As you can see from the dates the frequency of crashing is way up since the start of May. I know it is only once a week or so, but it is still very annoying - especially when information is being lost. This is bugging me a great deal. I know I have skipped some of the advised steps in the https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-crashes-troubleshoot-prevent-and-get-help web page. but what I'd really like is some clue as to why this is happening. Unfortunately my experience with computer programming only goes so far and I am finding the text of the crash reports incomprehensible - perhaps someone on here could have quick look and see if they can spot something significant. I will say that I am also getting increasing memory usage over time and I have had some hangs and slowdowns during this month as well.

I am beginning to wonder if Firefox has just out specced itself beyond the reach of my seriously old hardware - if this is the case Just tell me and I'll see if I can drop back to an earlier version as I don't like the interface on V. 29 in any case - I have had to use the add-on Classic Theme Restorer to get back to something I can live with and it still doesn't look quite right to me. I should point out that I have Asperger's Syndrome and I cope really badly with changes in my visual environment,

Yours Sincerely, Kaelkitty. .

Edited to add: As far as i can tell, all plug ins and extensions are up to date. I can't update my drivers any more for this system as no new ones are being produced for this hardware.

Since upgrade to FF 29.01 random existing tabs will open to pages days and weeks old even if those specific site-pages have been cleared from the history.

Forex, a ZDNet Six Clicks article continued to appear -- with its outmoded Page-back history -- two weeks after I had finished the article and had returned to the ZDNet Home page and loaded more current articles. I cleared the history of all Six Click articles and the tab **still* reloaded to the Six Click while wiping out the string of ZDNet articles I had been in the middle of reading insteading.

The same thing occurred with a series of Google searches I was using for my writing research over the last three days that was replaced with a Google Map pertinent to my niece's visit Thursday morning. My work has grounded to a halt because the Tab problem is eradicating all recent History in the Tab-path that I am accustomed to using for the past several years.
