Not as easy as check boxes, but....still available. Options can be changed thru about:config. Appear to all be working in my Firefox 23.0.1 version.

- In the address bar, type "about:config" (with no quotes), and press Enter.
- Click "I'll be careful, I promise"
Thank you and I hope this helps!
If you want a dumb system, fine: just make a simple/advanced settings menu toggle for the normal users and let power users have an easy access to ALL the settings. Stop removing stuff damn it. I Don't have time to waste to tweak the about:config settings.
For now, I'll use SettingSanity.Thank you RealityRipple.
Also, if Mozilla keeps going like this, I won't hesitate to stop recommending Firefox.
As I'm not at all technical, most of this discussion is over my head; however, I believe it may point to the answer to a problem that's plagued me recently.
I knew that pop-up disabling was a function of the user's settings and not of the ISP, and rather tetchily argued this point. Even so, I subsequently disabled the pop-up blocker in Firefox and tried again; still no joy.
After reading this I tried the Bosch site again, using IE; the "add to basket" button functioned perfectly. Downloaded Opera, and tried with that; again, opened perfectly. Tried on my wife's iPad, using Safari; again, perfect.
This all suggests that it's Firefox that is at fault. Not good news. So what does a non-techie like me do to cope with this?
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.
Boot the computer in Windows Safe Mode with network support (press F8 on the boot screen) as a test to see if that helps.
