I loathe the current version of Firefox, and was much happier with the previous version. I'm afraid I don't know what the current version number is, and don't know what the previous version number was, but so far as I know it was the latest before this new version.

How do I revert to the earlier version, while keeping all my addons and bookmarks? If I can get the previous version I will certainly store it on my computer so I don't have to ask this question again.

Regards, Alex

One installation of Firefox 38.0.5 on windows 8.1 does not display spinner box controls (see attached image). They are there but with 1 or 2 pix height as clicking the grey bar sometimes increases and sometimes decreases the numeric value.

Tried creating a new profile with no addons. Same problem. Haven't tried reinstalling Firefox yet.

This is not a problem with the website as this occurs on all sites with this type of form element.

It is also probably not a Firefox bug as I have Firefox 38.0.5 on Windows 7 at work that displays these form elements correctly.

Zoom (Ctrl +/-) does not change the erroneous appearance of the controls.

Any idea how to fix this?

I'm trying to get back my original settings after cleaning out some malware. Before, I could open the browser and surf and if I had a question about a word or name, statement, etc., I could copy and right click and choose "look up word on google" along with 4-5 other choices. Now when I try it, the list gives me about 30 choices, none of which are "look up on google". I went to options and in the column on the left side I tried to click "search" to no avail. If I click the other tabs (General, content, applications, etc) they all give me options. But when I click search only the previous tabs choices show. The search tab is there but does nothing. :) Thanks for any help!

FireFox Screen Turning Black After Set Time/RAM Used

Hi,

My question is in regards to graphics. This has been going on for several months now and it's getting to the point where it's beginning to eat away at me.

I've recently (within 6 months) installed an additional 16GB of RAM and a new GPU. I upgraded from an ATI Radeon HD 5750 to a Gigabyte Radeon R9 270x. I never had this issue with my 5750 card, so this initially led me to believe it was a card issue, until I discovered that my problem appears to be ONLY with FireFox.

Now to the issue: Upon reaching 2.8GB+ of used memory (according to Task Manager), FireFox flashes for a brief moment and upon scrolling the screen or switching tabs, turns completely black, forcing me to re-load the browser. Now the first issue of FireFox using so much RAM to begin with is insane, and I've tried lowering settings, disabling extensions, all sorts of stuff, and the only thing doing that does is prolong the time before the flash makes its annoying appearance.

The screen flashing issue seems to be something else entirely. I have tried updating to the latest version of FireFox, running a fresh install of FireFox, updating my Graphics Drivers to their latest versions, pretty much anything I can think of, and nothing seems to fix it. What seems to be the deal here? I'd greatly appreciate any feedback and insight into how I can solve this issue aside from flat out using a different web browser.

Physical specifications: ASUS P6X58D Motherboard Intel i7 930 @2.8GHz Processor 22GB Total RAM (3 sticks of 2 and 2 sticks of 8) Gigabyte Radeon R9 270x GPU Unknown Make/Model 850W Power Supply (Honestly I'm simply too lazy to dismantle the top of my tower which is stuffed away in a closed drawer to figure out the make/model at time of posting)

Lost most all my tab groups AGAIN! Third or fourth time, Im sick of it! I read some reviews about group managers, & basically they werent very good. If I want to back up something else on my computer, or copy & rename it, ITS EASY!

Isnt there a little program that would just backup up that jstore thingy each day? I could just hit it every day. Im good at backups, bad at having to remember proceedures like are required to back up that file every day. I can never even remember where it is.

I welcome your advice on add-ons, or easy ways to backup the jstore thing.

For some reason, the "search box" on the google homepage is "skewed" when I upgrade to ff38 (actually this started happening for anything greater than about version 24). The page displays normally except the the search box is shifted to the left by about 3 inches. Also when I type in it the text is also not displayed correctly (not centered in the box). It's not "fatal", but very annoying. Any ideas on how to fix this would be appreciated. Thanks

I have gone through the procedure listed in the troubleshooting crashes section but I still have the issue of firefox crashing when I try to open google maps. I previously had issues with firefox crashing on v37 - the earlier issues were resolved by unchecking the "Use hardware acceleration when valid" option. This is still unchecked and although firefox has been starting up since I made that change the issue with google maps has been occurring on v38. I am now at the current version. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
