After the recent update, the font started to get badly rendered. Kind of blurry with jagged edges and transparent parts. It used to be okay D:

Sometimes it becomes okay for a moment as I scroll down on pages, and sometimes when I stop scrolling, the font stays as it is; as if there are specific positions for the text to render properly. However, not all of the fonts are affected. Only the ones inside the scroll area.

On times that the font renders properly, the bookmarks font, title bar, and tab names are unaffected and still appear not-smooth. Same thing does not happen on other browsers. All my other system fonts look okay; it's really just Firefox.

Restarting Firefox = didn't work Restarting Computer = didn't work Tried setting up Clear Type = didn't work Tried enabling and disabling Hardware Acceleration on Firefox = didn't work Tried enabling and disabling the Graphics card itself = didn't work Tried just about all of the suggestions I found on Google = none worked Tried complete uninstall and re-install of Firefox 32.0 = didn't work

Graphics Driver are updated ~ Windows is updated ~

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit Graphics AMD Radeon HD 6800


I fixed it by downgrading to Firefox 31 which makes me sure that 32.0 is the culprit. As I was about to send the message on top; I tried downgrading as my last resort and it worked. Now I'm only sending this as a report. I am hoping you'll figure out what caused it because I am quite strict (OC) that everything in my PC must remain updated >_<; thus I want to use Firefox 32.0 as much as possible.

Once Firefox 31 is installed it sees all PDF files as Firefox HTML files and changes all of the PDF icons to Firefox HTML icons. This change can not seem to be reversed without uninstalling Firefox. Only the icon is changed, not the .PDF extension.

I don't want the Overseers at Mozilla telling what versions of ANYTHING I must use. I make my OWN decisions about security. How do I turn off those annoying, useless and nanny-state warnings about Flash player being out of date? PLEASE don't answer with "Update Flash Player here." That conformist nonsense is not what I asked for.

After I uninstalled Firefox, all icons returned to usual PDF icons and files were identified as "PDF" files, but when I installed Firefox (31.0) again, all PDF files again are identified as "Firefox HTML document". Extensions do not change, they are always .pdf, and files automatically open in Adobe Acrobat, but icons became "firefox HTML documents" icons and it is very confusing.

WIN XP. Have checked file association settings and pdf files are directed towards using Adobe reader. Completed uninstall of FFox31 and icons changed back to Adobe. Cleaned computer and carried out clean install. Icons remained as pdf for two restarts and then changed back to FFox icons. Everything works normally but the icons remain as FFox. Have set FFox application options to 'always ask' temporarily. I have a second WinXP machine that has upgraded to FFox 31 without this problem. Strange!

SINCE INSTALLING I.E. 11 IN WINDOWS 7, UNABLE TO DOWNLOAD OR SAVE FILES IN FIREFOX; HOW DO I CORRECT THIS PROBLEM?

This is what I wrote to the Microsoft Community seeking a correction of the issue (still no reply to my request for assistance with this matter from them):

Can I go back to I.E. 10? Ever since I installed version 11, I've had an unstable desktop. It appears to have damaged the Windows Explorer interface in other browsers, such that when I open the popup window to save downloads and/or other files, all that shows up in the window are the "Save" and "Cancel" buttons, but it does not show the interface to choose where to save the file(s), thus I cannot save anything at all in those other browsers. I primarily use Firefox, and every time I want to save a file, I have to startup I.E. 11 to save anything and everything.

I would much prefer going back to I.E. 10 which caused me no such problems; but, if I cannot go back to I.E. 10, how do I correct this issue so I can save files in other browsers? This situation has been going on for months now, and I've waited patiently thinking that there would be an update for Microsoft and/or Firefox (as well as Chrome and Safari) that would correct this problem by now; but, even though I have all of the latest updates and versions installed, no updates have corrected the issue at all. I would very much appreciate any help you can give.

Oh, also, I have tried uninstalling Firefox completely at least twice, and rebooting before reinstalling it to the latest version, but that has not corrected the problem either. I additionally tried turning I.E. 11 off in Windows, and then tried running Firefox to see if the download interface would be restored, but it still had the very same issue(s) [no ability to choose the place to save files, and thus being completely unable to save any downloads and/or other files]. I can't believe that this problem has been going on for so long now without any update(s) resolution.

What on earth are you thinking? We spent ages searching for malware & viruses because every time we open a new tab/window another tab opens with adverts! And we discover this is an actual firefox addition. (and "its clearly labelled as an ad" is a total lie!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

well $%^*(# you very much. Of course we are angry - what did you think would happen!

Thankfully we found a solution: about:config -> browser.newtab.url -> set it to about:blank

I posted a few days ago my issue where with major system resources Firefox slowly drags down internet performance.

This was followed by someone on our LUG posting about his wife and him having the same issue except a lot earlier but also with less system resources.

I'm betting that this issue of Firefox eating resources until it has to be restarted is a known one.

Why hasn't this been looked into by the coding team?

I'm not sure where it came from, but I've noticed the last few days that I suddenly have this blinking hand/arrow cursor when I'm online. I thought it was just on one site, but it isn't; it shows up everywhere. I've run AVG; it doesn't pick up anything. I've tried going into settings, but the arrow is chosen...not this weird blinking hand thing. Any ideas how to permanently get rid of it and go back to my arrow? Many thanks.

I've been posting to the mozilla forums for over a decade, but when I tried to log in this afternoon the site didn't recognize either my username or my password (it didn't specify which).

I tried to change my password but I never received the confirmation email.

So I've just created a "new" account using my old email address but with a new user name and password so that I could post this query.

What happened to my old account?

I don't know if this is directly a Firefox problem or whether it's an add-on issue, but since the update yesterday, embedded YouTube videos have been playing automatically when I open up a page which includes them.

Obviously this isn't ideal because I don't want to be forced to stop the videos every time, especially when there are multiple videos.

Does anyone know what the problem is and how exactly to solve it?
