Another laptop I have, running the same version of Windows 8.1 x64 and FireFox V43, has no problems displaying the variety.com webpage.

http://variety.com/2015/film/news/star-wars-force-awakens-reviews-premiere-reactions-1201661338/

Website displays properly in MicroSUCK Internet Explorer?

I am ENTIRELY stumped by this!

Thanks for your help, RangeAntelope

BTW, your webpage would NOT upload the .jpg screenshot - it just kept spinning & spinning & spinning!??

I work in a job where I must download an EPS file and have it open in Adobe Illustrator straightaway, without dialog box. I have checked the "Do this every time" box, and set it to always open Illustrator upon download of an EPS file in the Options panel. It will not "take" my instruction, and always asks me what to do with the file when it is downloaded, every time. My coworkers say this is a "known bug" -- that's a pretty heinous bug, Mozilla.

Is there an extension or about:config tweak we can use to bypass the dialog box?

turning off hardware acceleration fixed my image loading issue. is there another way around this?

System details: OS: Windows 8.1 Professional (64-bits) Graphics Card: PNY NVidia GT 610 (2GB) RAM: 5GB Firefox version: 36.0 (32-bits)

Starting yesterday, when images would load on websites, some of them would either be completely black, or mostly black, with only a piece of the images loaded, only to fully load several minutes later.

Turning off hardware acceleration resolved this issue, but reduced the overall performance of firefox. Is there any other way to work around this issue, besides turning off hardware acceleration?

Note: The only 2 things I didn't try were resetting firefox, and a fresh install of firefox. I don't want to lose my addon data, and custom firefox settings, because it takes too long for me to put them back where they are now.

I'm also fairly computer savvy, so you can get pretty technical with me. If I don't understand something, I will ask.

I love Firefox and don't want to use another browser. I frequently get the error "Firefox is already running". I even created a batch file to kill the process so I can re-launch it. There has to be a real solution.

The key to my issue is... I use shortcuts to web sites from my desktop. This is what seems to trigger the error (but not every time). Please don't tell me to stop using shortcuts; that isn't a solution.

I am using Windows 8.1 64 bit Firefox 32.0.1 (had this same problem with all prior versions too)

Any help is appreciated!

Private Browsing issues: New window is a "pop-up" & Right-clicking bookmarks shows grayed-out options

When I'm in private browsing mode in Firefox 38.0.1 for Windows 8.1, I cannot do the following things.

1. When I click on a link to open a new window, that new window is like a pop-up window (no menus, no scroll-bars). But I have pop-up windows blocked, so it acts like but is not technically a pop-up window since it's not being blocked.

2. When I choose a bookmark and then right-click on it to choose another bookmark either in a new window or new tab (or any of the other options that appear), the text is grayed out so that I cannot choose it.

Are these "issues" normal for Firefox 38.0.1?

I can't even open the downloaded .gif files on my computer. Not able to upload them to image sharing web sites: because they state the file is corrupted. This has been happening since the middle of the summer 2015 when firefox did an software update. .gif files can only be viewed by internet explorer because that is the coding of the file. Before that summer update, there was no problem and then the next day, I could not view .gif files downloaded with the new version. I even left firefox. Had to completely uninstall it and download another browser, which I don't like to continue my work with .gif files. I have redownloaded firefox and I want to use my favorite browser.

How do I fix this issue with .gif files? My OS is Windows 8.1 and don't tell me to upgrade to OS 10. Will not do it. I've heard too many problems with image software not working properly: even windows error of OS Not Found. So, not going there, don't suggest it.

Can anyone give me some 'For dumb dumbs' step by step with no abbreviations instructions for killing my new browser hijacker Yahoo... I downloaded a couple of what looked like free antiviral programs... They were not free on further viewing...and another two, although different names where also the same company... After deleting them Yahoo appeared and took over. I can access Google by fiddling around but its results come up in Yahoo.

Obviously I have looked for it within 'Remove a program'... I have also gone into Windows/Programs/Mozilla Firefox/addons and cannot find anything that sniffs of Yahoo. I have also reverted my laptop to a previous date way back at the end of July.... Afterwards Yahoo was still taking over my searches.

It will even cut me out of viewing when I access help pages and Ive had to find what I was reading using the history menu section. It allows other searches that are not to do with slaying Yahoo.. lol.. Its like living with the enemy.

I have been reading some earlier help pages but I don't find what people are being advised to find. Or answers provided are questioned by others who suggest also deleting other files... I want to be confident in what I delete not hesitant etc..

Id hoped Firefox may have a magical add on especially for the Yahoo removal task as many are finding they have been taken over...but, sadly nothing came up..

So if anyone can help with solutions even if they are different to each other, I would like to look at everyone's ideas please. Again...please be very specific with the dumb dumb speak for me lol... no big techy talk etc.. ha ha.. Thank you.

The new design of the Nytimes.com website prevents a user from highlighting and copying the text of an online article. When you highlight text and then try to copy to the clipboard, the right or left navigation arrow activates and moves you to the next or previous article.

This occurs in Chrome and Firefox but not IE.

Though it is possible that this bug is caused by an extension, it may be a bug introduced by the web redesign. Anyone expriencing this problem?

(Removed beta link to 28. -m)

All the current changes for firefox seem oriented towards the tab computer market but unfortunately these tab computers are way to slow and underperform compared dramaticly compared to my desktop computer. Having tabs below is what makes my system functionality and workflow perform at its best. I often have up to 100 tabs open at a time when doing research but with every change by firefox this ability is more and more taken away. from right click send emails and now tabs cant be placed below its time for firefox to decide if its time for two different versions of there product to be made. One for the desktop and a seperate version for tablet computers. Having tabs above the address bar is just plain stupid when you have 100 tabs open ie it just doesnt work. My pc has 64 gigs of ram and a 6 cor processor and with every itereation of firefox for the past 4 years my ability to use the ability of my PC has been more and more removed. I seem to have no choice but to revert to an earlier version of firfox in order to at least keep some of the former functionality. I dont use touch functionality and yet the latest version seems complllletelly oriented towards touch computers and thats great but its been done at the expence of people like me who will never use this type of feature. Time to creat two seperate versions of Firfox one for people like me who have realy powerfull computers and many many many tabs open at a time and one for the tablet pc touch people who only have 1 or 2 tabs open at a time.

When ever i watch videos i get memory leak, if that's the right word to call it, to avoid video lags i new use only 1 video Tab & not 2 like in the past, its just some sources are slow with loading, that why i use to use 2, awry time i click on next EP memory usage grows & awry time i click on full-screen it grows even more & larger number, depending source, some sources use RAM & some committed memory (but with both memory usage grows with each video), so far anime sources use committed & TV series sources ram, also there was talk that Firefox 36 will be free of Flash, that it goes over to HTML5, but i still see flash in my plugins & also all videos still use flash, with anime ram usage increases to a bit, but not as much as with TV series sources, when will the memory leak be fixed?


EDIT: lets just say it leaks memory when watching videos, its just worse in full screen, with TV series it doesn't matter full screen or not, still takes a lot of ram, well in the end of the day its a lot, starts from over 300MB & grows, some sources leak ram & some committed


all my adds, its for extra information

Adblock Edge, Enforce Encryption, Ghostery , More In Content UI +.

this are not known as problem creators, just in case some1 thinks i mite have bad adds

Hi, I was just wondering if this was only happening to me or not. I always update when told by my plug-ins, or virus protection and when Firefox says there's a new update. I've now got the latest 43.0.2 and since this and one or 2 updates before my computer hangs or crashes, whatever you want to call it and I will sometimes get the icon telling me Firefox has crashed, report, etc. I wanted to know what is causing it. It's a brand new computer with all the updates, including Microsoft, etc. I never used to have this problem before with Firefox. I tried to read some others that posted similar things but I didn't understand anything that was told to them to do. I'm not techy. I just know enough to get around. I'm going to probably use Internet Explorer more until Firefox fixes or updates again. It's pretty frustrating when you're in the middle of something and this happens. Like I said I wondered if it was because of the last few updates Firefox did. I was always told you need to keep it updated but if it causes problems like this perhaps I shouldn't. Thanks from the clueless, Debbie

My Firefox won't update automatically anymore. Even if I check on Help --> About Firefox, it runs for a while and then it says it is updated. I have another FF installation on my work laptop, and it correctly picks up updates, this version on pc doesn't.

Please, I have already tried manually updating to the latest firefox a few weeks ago: I am now running version 42 here. Yet, today my work pc got updated to 43.0.2, and this one doesn't.

I would not like to completely remove FF in order not to loose my add-ons, could you please guide me to reinstate normal auto-update feature?

Thanks
