I do not want images to automatically load. Among other reason, this is a dial-up connection. I unchecked the box in Tools > Options > Content. However, increasing number of websites now over-ride this setting: Amazon, Google, & even the Mozilla Firefox home page. It bogs down the whole system. Even with Ghostery running, the Firefox CPU usage shoots up to 97-100% and the whole show stops. I have to terminate Mozilla Firefox to get the system back. You folks on the Mozilla team are doing something to over-ride the setting. (I can do without the revolving pug dog and the dash line border. Wish I could shut it off). Obviously, other sites are following suit - most recently Amazon. [WinXP SP2, dial-up. I keep the system simple.] Why is this happening? How can I stop it?

Minimize/Maximize/Close button not working (and more)

I am using Windows 7. Last week, the window buttons (minimize, restore, close) ceased operating in both Firefox and Thunderbird. I had to minimize/restore from the taskbar for them to restore operation. When I minimized and restored the window, the buttons worked, but after any other operation in the browser (scroll, change tab, whatever) they stopped responding. Another minimize/restore window and they worked again but they stopped responding again as I explained.

Other issues: Drag and drop functionality was lost. My screensaver no longer came on after the computer was idle for the allotted time. I could not select a choice in dropdown menus in Firefox or Thunderbird. And finally, none of the function buttons on YouTube (e.g., pause, volume) worked.

After some investigation, I solved the problem, like so:

1. Go to Start and run regedit, then find this folder: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\4

2. Look at the value for Key 1802, which deals with permissions to drag and drop -- it should be "0" -- if it is "3" drag and drop is disabled.

3. Find Key 1802 and changed the value to 0. After restarting the computer, everything worked as it should.

Today, however, all of the above problems have returned. In fact, I was running a Malwarebytes scan when suddenly Windows began automatically updating. When the computer restarted after the update, the problems described above had returned.

Interestingly, my three kids each have a partition of the hard drive on this computer. These problems are not occurring for them. Just for me. Also, these problems do not seem to be happening in other browsers. If I open Google Chrome, for instance, the minimize/restore/close buttons work fine and the buttons on YouTube videos work as well.

I have run Malwarebytes, HitMan Pro, and TDSSKiller. Nothing has been found. I have tried running in safe mode; the problem persists. I have uninstalled and then reinstalled Firefox to no avail. I have reset Firefox as well as disabled add-ons, yet the problem persists.

I suspect something has altered the registry in some way. I tried to do a System Restore but the restore process did not complete.

I have noticed that others have had this problem with Firefox in the past, and no one seems to have been given a solution. Please note that I have already tried the "standard" suggestions of resetting, reinstalling, and so forth. They don't work.

Any ideas at all?

I have to go to Safari to see Yahoo Comics. When I try in Firefox, after a 2-3 seconds, a bunch of ads and blue text overlays the top of the comics page. Adblock will take care of each image, and there's 5 or 6 I had to block. But the blue text stays, and when I click on an individual title on the right, new ads overlay that comic. Can you fix this? Thank you.

I have an old Acer One with Limpus Lite. Instructions talk about Firefox 2 to 7 and I am running 15. Before I install it, I'd like to be sure 26 will work on my machine (15 says it is up to date and obviously isn't).

I know how to unpack and put it in the proper directory but before I wipe out the old one, I want to be sure 26 will work. Thanks.

I am running Windows 7. The problem began with update 25.0.1. I completely uninstalled and reinstalled 25.0.1 several times with no success. Quit using Firefox for a time, then tried installing 26.0. Still would not run. So I reverted to 15.0.1, and it will run.

Immediately after installing the upgrade, Firefox will run. After rebooting my computer, Firefox will not open. An error "not responding" appears and I have to go into Task Manager to close Firefox.

I have tried everything in your help files that pertains to my computer. I really like Firefox, but am getting a bit frustrated.

Upon starting Firefox, often after starting or restarting my computer but sometimes after closing the Firefox browser(s) for a significant time, the program asks to update. Firefox asks this every time, and I have no idea how many times I have updated to the most recent browser version and I suspect the update is not saving correctly so the program is continually reverting to the last recent browser version.

I have FF version 15 installed on my MacBook. I keep getting notices to update. When I click to update the download gets into some sort of loop and the download just keeps spinning around (forever if I let it, so I exit). So, this morning I went to the Mozilla page to download the newest version. I followed all of the steps. It downloads, then I click to install and it seems to almost install. The last step is to drag the icon to the Mac A box, so I do that. Viola, it is done! Then I open Firefox to see what version I have. Whatdoyouknow, I still have Version 15! Any suggestions are appreciated, thanks, Bob

The button 'Restart to update' shows and does a restart but there is no update. I have checked under 'OPTIONS': in the 'Advanced' section, on the Update tab, 'Automatically install' is selected. 'Warn me if this will disable add-ons' & 'Use a background service to install updates' are both checked. I can download and install the latest version of Firefox but how can I automatically keep it up to date?
