Its my office intraweb and I was told its not compatible with this upgrade

Chosen solution

I see, that's different.

If it is a secure page (HTTPS), can you check for a mixed content block? A shield icon appears on the address bar to the left of the URL in that case. This article has more information on this new feature of Firefox 23: Mixed content blocking in Firefox

Also, please see cor-el's post with troubleshooting steps.

Opening in the sidebar is the default for bookmarks that are created via a link or button on a website.
You can check the Properties of a bookmark via the right-click context menu in the sidebar (Ctrl+B; Command+B on Mac).
In the Bookmarks Manager (Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks) you can click the More button in the Details pane at the bottom right.
Make sure that "Load this bookmark in the sidebar" is not selected.

Did the site work in Firefox 23 -- in other words, is this a new problem in Firefox 24?

You can try basic steps like these in case of issues with web pages:

Reload web page(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.

  • Hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button
  • Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • Press "Command + Shift + R" (Mac)

Clear the cache and the cookies from websites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

  • Firefox/Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • Firefox/Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window.

You could run the release version of Firefox 23 for now; at least that will get you through another 4 weeks until Firefox 24 is released from beta.

Generally speaking, you shouldn't lose any personal data in this process, but it never hurts to make a backup of your profile folder(s) before dropping down a version.

I don't know whether you've run into a new bug that may get fixed or a new behavior incompatible with your internal site. It sounds as though your house developers are aware of the issue, so hopefully they will be able to work around this or can report the bug, as the case may be.

Hi superchuck, the forum recorded your version as 24, which is the beta version.

The link above should take you to Firefox 23: https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/fx/#desktop

It might have been 22 then I downloaded the beta to try and fix the issue and it didn't help
