I've added extra pinned site rows and columns on the new tab page. The new search bar is redundant and space hogging. Please provide how to disable in step by step instructions :)

Edit: Answer 1. Go to Firefox Profile Folder (go to about:support in Firefox then click Open folder/Show in Finder to get there) 2. Open or create the chrome folder in the Firefox Profile Folder. 3. Create a blank text file, copy and paste this code into the text file.

@-moz-document url(about:newtab) {

 #newtab-search-container, #newtab-search-logo { display:none !important; } 
 #newtab-margin-top, #newtab-search-container { display:none!important; }
 } 

4. Save it as userContent.css (using ALL FILES under the drop down menu) 5. Place the new css file into the chrome folder.

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!

As Mac user, I've always shunned Sarfari in favor of Firefox mainly because I don't have to download webm files in order to watch them. All of a sudden, now you do. Is there something I have to reset, or have you turned it into a option like you did with the Add-on bar?

Using my Macbook Pro I accidentally made Ask.com my search page when I opened Firefox last week. I wanted to restore to my original opening page. Trying to delete it seemed impossible so I tried to supercede the page by reverting back to the original with an address bar in the upper left corner and a search bar (Google) in the upper right using mozilla somehow. Unfortunately Mozilla Add-ons page now opens up when I click firefox. These add-ons may be very useful in the future, but I don't to bother with them now. I'd like to now how to delete that page so it doesn't open, and restore what I had before. P.S. I got to it trying to eliminate Ask.com according to instructions....with pictures even. Hard to find for Apple.

iMac OS-X 10.7.5. Firefox 46.0.1. A couple of weeks ago I started getting the spinning pinwheel when trying to load my home page, NASA-TV. Chrome & Safari load it. Something that may or may not be related; eBay pages load quickly when the computer is first turned on but slower the longer the computer has been running. I've followed the links from Mozilla Support and done a couple of things like update plugins and delete cookies, but obviously they didn't work.

I have had no problems with the browser until today. I'm on a Mac OSX 10.7.5 using Firefox 19.0.2.

Yesterday I used PrivacyScan like I usually do once a week and today I logged into all of my regular sites. Then I ran MacScan like I usually do. Suddenly, every time I quit Firefox and reopen it, I lose all of my logins to sites.

I don't have "Remember passwords for sites" checked because I use 1Password. In Privacy, I have "Accept cookies from sites" and "Accept third-party cookies" checked.

I've run PrivacyScan and MacScan plenty of times in the past without problems and I haven't changed any settings, so this is a complete mystery.

I am running on a Mac (Lion) with FF 25.0. I typically hide the toolbar because I like to max out my screen space without having to go into full screen mode. So I typically use a custom keyboard command to navigate forward and back during my browser session, but occasionally the keyboard command fails and the page is unresponsive. In the past all I had to do was go up to the History drop down menu and choose "Back" or "Forward". I would also use the "Home" selection to get back to my homepage. But ever since I updated to 25.0 those selection are now gone from the History menu.

Is there any way to restore them? And are they gone for all users (was this a global change) or are one of my add-ons simply not playing nice and causing this problem? TIA!

I just upgraded to the most recent version of Firefox and am now unable to zoom in and out at all. Has this feature been disabled? How do I get it back? I'm using a Mac desktop, running OS X 10.7.5 (Lion, I believe). The Firefox version is 47.0. The zoom buttons still show up but do nothing when I click on them. I've also tried the key commands. Has anyone run into this yet? Any known fixes?

This is extremely frustrating and has been happening for months now. Sometimes the sites load, but then stop working after a few minutes, and then it's nearly impossible to get them to load again. It just hangs at "connecting" for ever until it either times out or just goes to a blank tab. Other sites work, but anything Google related such as search, gmail, finance, etc or Facebook simply don't work.

It appears that this is a common problem recurring every 6 months or so according to this board. I've tried clearing cookies/cash and then even reset Firefox and it still happens. Any suggestions to fix this problem?

Thank you very much!

Since I updated to 43.0.4 I cannot disable the search from the location / address bar. I've checked and unchecked the "Show search suggestions in location bar results" button several times, closed preferences, closed Firefox... I don't want to search from the address bar, as it makes navigating with the keyboard rather awkward.
