Firefox opens ok, but rapidly has a drop down, small, top-centered window that says "Sync", but quickly goes blank and shortens right at the top of the wind. When this happens, it freezes Firefox and the only way out is to quit Firefox. I just upgraded Firefox to the latest version on a Mac OS 10.9.3 from an older version.

I have been using Firefox and it used to ask me if I wanted to save a download or open it. Now, when it is a PDF it automatically downloads. I don't need all of these downloads on my computer. When I go to Options, I have checked the box that says "Always Ask Me Where to Save Files". I only want to open downloads, not save them.

Since my system was getting sluggish I've decided to format everything and reinstall Win 8.1 back with FF32.

I was normally logged in and have stored approx. 100 passwords and bookmarks in that FF32.

After reinstall I've logged in to FF Sync and found an unpleasant surprise: Even though all check boxes are ticked - everything is emply. Nothing is being fetched.

What the hell? I dislike losing everything. I do have backup but not completely up to date.

sigh

Since the update yesterday, FIrefox is practically unusable.

I cannot see any of the boxes for inputting data and all websites look wrong with no graphical images showing up such as showing buttons, logos and color schemes.

I have tried to restart in Safe Mode, Creating a new profile in Profile Manager, AND I have uninstalled and reinstalled.  

Any additional suggestions? If I do not get this resolved soon I will most likely begin to use Opera or Chrome.

After I upgraded to the latest version of the Firefox the print on most sites I visit became virtually unreadable because the text is so faint. In same cases I have to block the text to be able to read it. It became impossible to use the "Reply" or Compose" in gmail (online) because the default type-size is so small and faint (grey? or light?). I literally have to go to a notepad to compose my message, then block and copy, and finally paste it into the reply window. I played with default colors, etc but nothing seems to fix it. I even used the classic-theme restorer add-on and still no improvement...

Anybody else have this problem? What is the solution?

So i've set plugins.click to play to both false and true, restarting firefox each time.

It still blocks everything. I had a similar problem with the last update as well, and couldn't find an add-on that would help. To be fair i'm not getting the annoying message anymore but even with noscript disabled it still just shows a gray box where stuff should be.

http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~matuszek/General/JavaVersionTests/JavaTests.html

this is a good example

Why can't i turn it off? am i missing something? Please help me before i lose my mind. I have homework to do.

For some reason, whenever Firefox is maximized, part of the browser window is showing down at the bottom of the screen. I don't know why it is doing that. I tried disabling classic theme restorer and it didn't go away, I tried updating to the latest version of Firefox and it still didn't go away. I am using a laptop with a touch screen built in and I notice that whenever I scroll up along a page using the touch screen, it starts glitching where the window will repeatedly try to jolt downward and come up. I think that has something to do with why the bottom part keeps showing. Other than that, there isn't any other problem with it.

Hi,

When I print eBay labels through Firefox, a .dll file is downloaded. This used to open automatically in Adobe Reader, but now it opens as a text document in TextEdit, so I have to manually open Adobe Reader, change options to show "all files", and then locate the .dll file and open it.

When I try to change the default application in Firefox preferences, I can't find anything with the content type "dll".

Is there a way to have Firefox automatically open .dll files with Adobe Reader?

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

Currently using Firefox 30.0.3 Mac OS 10.9.5. When I tried to edit my collection of bookmarks buy opening the "show all bookmarks" in the pull-down menu., nothing happened. This usually opens a new tab or window with the bookmarks displayed. I then researched HELP and tried all those solutions to no avail. Even where the help topic says a bookmarks window will open, it does not. I have no way of editing or deleting en masse outdated bookmarks. Yes I can do so individually through the bookmark button on the toolbar - what a pain in the _________s.

Is this problem intentional, or a glitch?
