The full ad is this"Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at famousadage.com.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is....

Anyway, it takes you to go.daddy where the site has been parked. How can this ad be gotten rid of because when I first saw the ad I wasted sometime because I thought it was a advisory regarding my Firefox browser. OK How do we get rid of this ad?

I got one of those pop ups, your FF is loading slow, so I said ok, then kicked me into updating sync... I had trouble logging in change my PW twice, and it worked once then not again. Soooo, questions are: 1) are firefox account and sync account the same? 2) do they have different pws? 3) do I log out of them separately or together?

4) how do I tell if I am in new Sync or old. [first time I tried there was no "disconnect" on my sync page]

Once I get accounts and PWs straightened out, I'll be back with more questions.

Sorry to be critical, but I think many of the faq and help pages are close to worthless. They are carrying too many assumptions about what you already know if you ask a question. One solution, ANYTHING mentioned [e.g. sync, account, logon, usename, etc] should have a <learn more> link.

thanks look forward to answer[s] tom

Until this latest firefox version 35, I could right-click on a tab, select "Recently closed tabs", and then pick a site that I had closed out.

Now, all I see is a small square box in the upper right corner of that option. When I click on "Recently Closed Tabs", nothing happens.

What do I need to do to get "recently closed tabs" to work?

I have a Canon MG6250 connected via USB. I run Windows 7 with all latest updates and currently the Firefox version is 38.0.5. For quite some time, probably about a year, starting after a new version of Firefox I think , I have trouble printing. (Sorry I can't remember with which version it started happening.) Unless I wait for the printer to ready itself completely, although the print dialogue box appears and I click Print, often (not always) nothing happens. If I try to print again I get a pop-up box saying the print function is not available. If I then close Firefox and try to restart it, it tells me that Firefox is already running; I have to end its process via Task Manager. Often I want to print from several tabs, already loaded with the pages to be printed. Even if I manage to get the first tab to print, somewhere along the line the same thing often happens: before I've printed the last tab's page I get the pop-up box again and I have to end the Firefox process to make it work again. I can usually prevent it from happening if I monitor my computer's CPU activity (via System Mechanic) and make sure all activity has stopped after printing one tab before I try to print the next; this makes printing from Firefox frustratingly slow!

I do not have any printing problems whatsoever from any other application.

Note that fairly recently, due to a system drive failure, I re-installed Windows and all my software. I hoped that a by-product of doing this might fix the Firefox printing problem, but it hasn't.

I'd be most grateful for a solution to this problem.

Since the latest Firefox download, I'm having the occasional problem where a certain page will suddenly scroll to the bottom and all efforts to scroll back up prove unsuccessful. Sometimes this affects all pages across all tabs, sometimes only certain pages. Closing and re-opening the browser has no effect. The only way to get back to normal is to restart the computer. Is this a Firefox problem?

I am still looking for accessibility fixes. I have sensory processing issues, and all the animation online *hurts,* so I need ways to disable animation.

If I search for accessibility, it returns results involving access to this or that, unrelated to accessibility for disabled users.

If I search for disable animation accessibility -access it still returns results involving access to this or that... What is a point of searches if the results don't involve important search terms and contain excluded terms?

Firefox has been freezing constantly for the past 2 days on my Mac Pro, Mac OS 10.8.5, Firefox 35

Have tried the following :

1. Fresh Install 2. Downgrade to firefox 34 3. Closing & unpinning certain tabs 4. Refresh

However ultimately there will come a point where the app will freeze and cease up - consistently when it asks for the master password.

Turning off the master password function has helped but entering back into preferences will crash the app again.

Its not generating crash reports and I was only able to find this possible reference in Console

18/01/2015 21:47:31.000 kernel[0]: firefox (map: 0xffffff801fc1d308) triggered DYLD shared region unnest for map: 0xffffff801fc1d308, region 0x7fff96200000->0x7fff96400000. While not abnormal for debuggers, this increases system memory footprint until the target exits.

Please advise on what I can do to fix the problem.

Since the actual firefox-version 35.0 is updated, some unusual problems with firefox can be noticed. For example if starting firefox with several windows and with opening the last session of firefox, the order of the windows are not the same as before and I have to close some windows to set them in the order as before. And if some tabs in a window are closed and I have opened them again, they are not opened separately one after another, but only one tab in which all the closed tabs are opened then after another, but the previous ones are overdubbed from the following ones. Only if the closed tabs are opened simultaneously, then all the closed tabs are opened separately again as before, but not at the same place of the tabs in the window as before.

I am always logged into three separate Google/Gmail accounts simultaneously. Each is used for different projects/types of communication (e.g. work, personal, side-project). I want to use the share service, but when I click to share it doesn't give the option to choose which account to use. This makes the share service mostly useless. Could you please fix this? Thanks!

I was emailed some pdf documents. I selected to download the documents, the download arrow turned blue. I was then able to select the file. The normal browser print page opened and I was able to print. I needed to reprint the pages and this is where my issue arises. Now when I try to select the file firefox shows that it is downloading the file but when I select the downloaded pdf firefox only downloads the doc again and shows a blank page.

I'm currently at work and don't have the browser specs available.
