I have checked my settings and plug-ins and cannot correct it. My Firefox on my work laptop doesn't get these, and neither does Internet Explorer. I'm thinking its a Java thing, but not sure. It's obviously to do with the button (action button). Any suggestions?

Site example: http://weather.gc.ca/radar/index_e.html?id=WHK

All animation buttons are these little character boxes rather than "play", "pause", etc.

I can send a picture if you need one. Won't let me paste it into this box.

Thanks,

Peter Spettigue

Searching from the address bar does nothing. Typing searches in the search bar does nothing. Under "Manage Search Engines", all options are greyed out, and clicking "get more search engines" does nothing. I've started in Safe Mode with the same result. I've tried deleting and re-intalling Firefox and have tried a new profile. All with no change.

Ever since the update to Firefox 33.1 (and/or since the Windows 7 update in the week of Nov.11.2014), Firefox will not retain the tabs from my previous session. I have (and have always had) my Options set to load pages from the previous session, but even when I set it to something else and then back to that again, it will only load my homepage tabs when I start up Firefox again. This is extremely annoying, since I like to leave tabs open to go back and read articles or whatever, so I've lost things now that I wanted to refer back to.

Is anyone else having this problem? I don't recall having this exact problem previous to the latest update(s) of Firefox and/or Windows 7.

I am getting the message : 'Firefox can't find the file at about:newtab.' when trying to open a new tab to access my links there. I am not sure the version number, but I do have whatever was last pushed down earlier this week. Is this something I can fix, or is this on the back end?

I've never had any issues with Gmail up until today. I'm not entirely sure what the support technician from Best Buy did while fixing my anti-virus, but now FireFox refuses to load the Gmail webpage. It now tells me that the connection isn't trusted and refuses to load it in any way, shape, or form.

"This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to mail.google.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

mail.google.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)"

I have not specified for it to connect securely, but I'm guessing it always has. I desperately need to get this issue fixed as my schoolwork is tied to my Gmail and I use it often.

I have my old Sync key for the pre version 29 Firefox Sync. I believe to have deleted the data associated with it about a week ago. Is there anyway I could restore the data? It was in error and I don't recall seeing a confirmation. The reason I deleted the data was because I thought I lost my key but I had two and didn't try the newer one. I do know how to download the old version to use the old sync and update to the new one so if there is some way to restore the data I would be very glad.

EDIT: Corrected typo in tite.

I am unable to stop FF from requiring the User Account Control dialog box before it will load. I uninstalled and reinstalled a clean copy, which worked the first time, and then re-established the UAC dialog on subsequent starts. This is incredibly annoying. It has never happened before with FF. How do I stop this behavior? I will stop using the damn program if this can't be fixed.

This is something that started very recently...say one month ago. I sent 2 less than 600kb pictures which were split into 3 groups, I assume by firefox. When the emails arrived they were not pictures but numbers.

Previously, I had sent pictures of several MB with no email splitting.

There must be some method of setting up the email to limit the number of MB to be sent.

Please help me find the way to make this work smoothly.

Hi,

I have FVD Speed dial and Eversync installed on my Windows 7 laptop, which I've been using for ages now and never had any problems whatsoever. One of my speed dials is for my Gmail account, but I cannot get into my email on my laptop that has Windows 8.1 installed from Firefox or Cyberfox even though I can do so without difficulty using Chrome and Opera. On this same laptop (running W8) all the rest of the speed dials are fine - it's only the Gmail one that won't work and I get the following message:

"The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

I have tried every single troubleshooting guide I can find (including going into about:config and making changes there) but to no avail and it doesn't seem (from what I've read) that anyone else has this perculiar problem that I'm experiencing.

As Gmail is one of the speed dials I use the most, it's getting really frustrating and I love this browser so don't want to have to ditch it, but if I can't get this fixed I'm afraid I'm going to have to.

Can anyone help me please?

Thanks
