1-Click Download is "pushed" in its own tab every time I start Firefox. I'm liable to quit "starting Firefox" unless this can be stopped. The message equates to, Oh boy! Here's the greatest news on Earth: You are ready to get started! Version 2.0.9 - FireFox 22.* Compatible. I don't want this or any other sales crap being pushed at me, Firefox 22 compatible or NOT. WHAT DOES IT TAKE (besides switching to Safari or Chrome) TO STOP THIS?

If I right click (control-click on mac) to customize, there is nothing to drag to the toolbar to re-populate it. I dragged the dark star on the white rectangle but it had no effect. (Not sure what that icon is supposed to do.)

The only way I can see the toolbar bookmarks is to put them in a sidebar, which takes up an inordinate amount of space.

Hi, I have a thing that's been bugging me for a while. I have Firefox locked down pretty tight. Do not track, no browser history stored and no cookies etc etc.

HOWEVER, whenever I open a new tab I get the blocks of "previously visited websites to chose from" with some sites I have visited in the past (though not all) even though I'm basically running in private mode all the time. I can go to the security settings and select "clear history" and they go away and I get blank boxes again. But every time it builds up and they come back. How do I stop this from happening? Because clearly it's saving my browsing history somewhere, somehow even though I'm asking it not to.

Any help would be appreciated.

Im using firefox 20 beta and os x 10.8.2, Ive been on beta channel for a long time but with 20 beta every time I start firefox it says "well this is embrassing..." and tries to restore couple of tabs I visited before..problem just started after first update of beta ,

I tried; reset firefox complete uninstall by deleting profile folder also deleting org.mozilla.firefox.plist file in preferences folder in library

made clean instal but nothing changed. Im sure firefox closes normally as I checked on activity monitor and my homepage is about:newtab. "show tabs from last time" is not selected from preferences.

same problem continues on aurora 21 too, it just started after first update of 20 beta, I used 20 beta without such problem for a week, but since first update of beta its broken even on aurora too.

btw java is disabled and problem occurs when flash is not working..

I'm running FF 20.2 on Mac OS X 10.8.3. I recently found that item in drop-down menu cannot be selected by clicking, although it can be selected by hitting "enter" on keyboard. I have no add-ons installed so that shouldn't be the problem. Like go to http://www.newegg.com/ and click search menu, I can't select any options. Thanks for your help in advance.

Firefox 20.0 has added an infuriating feature that causes notification windows to pop up alerting me to whatever it feels like whenever it feels like. This telemarketing-style interruption is absolutely pointless and 100% in my way, and there HAS to be a way to disable it. Please, someone help! I don't want to have to drop Firefox—I've dealt with all kinds of ridiculous changes over the years—but I can't live with these interruptions.

I'm using Mac OS X 10.8.2.

Also, if anyone knows how to turn off that animated downloading arrow, that would be great, too.

I have been having issues with certain pages loading correctly but have not been able to resolve the issues. I also tried to create a screen shot to no avail apparently. It's is not with every website only some here and there. Sometimes if I navigate aware and come back to that page it can resolve the issues but more times than not it does not fix the problem. I can also use another web browser such as google chrome or firefox and not run into the same issue. The exact same page will load correctly and as expected. I appreciate your assistance in this matter and I have done some of the trouble shooting steps noted in the frequently asked questions and what you all have suggested to resolve the issue such as clearing the cache, etc but it does not seem to resolve the problem long term

I am on a MAC. I had my LIBRARY window open because I use it daily, mostly for bookmarks.

I wanted to delete some specific history links in the large window (with columns like Name and Location, Visit Date etc). I did not notice that the highlighted place was in the left toolbar under History so I accidentally deleted HISTORY--- Today, Yesterday and ALL of April. This is a business computer and this is a BIG problem. I tried several times under Edit to hit UNDO but it did nothing.

Why would Firefox not have some warning box to tell you you are about to delete a large amount of info? And why is it not reversible?

Also I am on my computer EVERY day for hours and the most recent bookmark backup point was today AFTER the large deletion of info mentioned above. And then the next previous one was April 23. So 2 more questions-- 1--why has it not auto backed up in almost 10 days? I don't do any manual backups. 2--does this restore point also restore history?

Ever since I upgraded to the new Firefox, my drop down options are limited for example when I need to select a birth date it only shows up to the 20th.

Makes it really difficult for me to do everything especially for university.. I have to use another computer or browser but I really don't want to move from Firefox so I'm holding on!

I have tried taking off add ons, uninstalling and safe mode. Nothing worked. It only happened after I updated.

Please help!

Moderator edited the title of this thread to reflect the affected versions - this not a support issue at this time as it involves pre-release versions that are currently in the Alpha testing phase

It seems Firefox definitely has some password link problems. It no longer asks me if I want to save new passwords and when I try to access passwords in security, it freezes and I have to hard quit. (See "frozen screen" grab attached.)

Hi Julian, Keychain Services Integration still not working in Firefox 32.0a1 (2014-05-29) I have bug reporting selected but can find no log reports for Keychain Services Integration in console. I have completely removed and installed fresh many times. All indications in the browser say it's active but nothing happens. I have disabled every other tool / add-on I use with no change. I'm not any kind of expert but can generally find some indication of problems. In this case nothing. All looks good but I still have to enter my passwords every time I open my regular pages. Thanks for the good work. I really miss the convenience.

I'm not using any ad blockers. What is going on? Don't make me have to use Google Chrome. I hate that damn browser, but I can't keep constantly restarting Firefox.

I was wondering if there is a way to fix it!

The last couple of versions of Firefox have seemingly been more permissive in the popup allowing. If I go to http://www.popuptest.com/popuptest12.html, all three popups open with a simple window.open() JavaScript call. The only one that gets blocked is when I click the back button. Shouldn't the ones that open automatically be the ones that get blocked? I've gotten quite a few ad popups, and it's making me wonder if window.open() is being ignored now.
