I just bought this laptop (Dell Inspiron 15R Touch) in mid-December, and upgraded to Windows 8.1 soon after. Firefox was working quite well for a bit, but after the upgrade, it completely failed. Not only do I have to run it in Compatibility mode with websites I am required to use daily, it hangs and crashes constantly when trying to navigate around pages. The best example of this behavior can be found when I use the website allnurses.com, which behaves very well in both Chrome and IE11. It would appear that the shockwave and/or flash are causing problems, but it can't be the only thing, because I get a strange mixture of script errors, adobe sad faces/crash reports, and pure sudden crash and shutdown. I have updated FF, reset FF, disabled hardware acceleration, and offered dark gifts to the Lord of IT, all in vain. Please help me, Mozilla-wan Kenobi. You are my only hope (to make it through this next semester without boiling my laptop in rage).

When I checked my Mozilla crash record, it shows crashes happening nearly every three minutes. I c/p'd just today's.

Firefox adds account names when you log into different accounts. If you make a mistake then the mistakes will show up as well each and every time. I would like to edit the file to stop this. In the past I have deleted Firefox and re-installed it to fix this problem. I'm sure there's a better way than that.

I was using Google Chrome and there was a very good input tool for my mother tongue Urdu available there. Somehow it stopped working and I was not able to resolve this issue besides a regular issue of web session crashing with a message "shockwave isn't responding". So I am looking for a similar tool here on Firefox. Do let me know if there is. I will be more than glad :)

You explain how to change the default search engine of the "address bar" at top right. I want to know how to change the search engine in the address window at top left. At present, if I type in an unrecognized address, my ISP's search engine appears. I would prefer to have Google's or Bing's search engine when I make an addressing error.

I want to add manually a web-site and my login data to the pass-word manager list. I cannot use the recommended method because the web-site is trying to protect access to my account, a protection I do not need from my home-computer. Using Internet Explorer Version 11, I have been able to store my login data for that site, but I cannot with Firefox. How do I overcome this restriction with Firefox?

For the past week I am not able to login to my Bank of America and T Rowe Price accounts using Firefox. Both places show the same problem: I enter my login id, it asks me my password, I enter my password and it goes back to the first screen and asks my login id again. It does not report any error. It keeps going in this loop.

I don't have any problems if I use IE or Chrome. I am using Windows Vista.

I removed all cookies and that did not solve the problem. After that I uninstalled firefox from my computer and downloaded the latest version and installed it again. Still, I can't login to my bank accounts. I don't have a problem logging into other back accounts; just these two. One week earlier I did not have any problem with Firefox. What can be the problem and how do I fix it?

I cannot play MP3 or DVD's any longer. Everything used to work perfectly, but today they do not. I have downloaded Real Player again and it worked for half the MP3 and stopped. I tried downloading Google Chrome and it did not work at all. Uninstalled Google Chrome. My wife and I are members of a study group that use MP3's for every lesson. We've sat by my monitor and watched literally hundreds of lessons satisfactorily. It's most frustrating to be unable to continue. Something is wrong, but how do I fix it?

I have not updated Firefox for some time, and do not know which version I was using.

I use a Macbook and today I upgraded to OS X Mavericks. However, it updated my Firefox and now I have version 26.0.

The scrollbar to the right has disappeared. To get it, I need to press my down arrow key and then quickly get the arrow onto the newly appeared black bar, in order to scroll. There is no arrows available either and I cannot find out how to add them and the scrollbar back in.

I don't like the apple style scrollbars that hide when you don't use them, which is one reason I didn't update for over a year. I just want a visible scrollbar back and visible arrows I can click on.

Any ideas? I have no knowledge of computer code so am hoping there is a way to do it without having to go into a shop to get someone to edit code for me.

Firefox does not display (cuts off) bottom edge and right hand edge of graphics. IE10 does not. desktop Windows 7 2009 service pack 1 Firefox 26 Internet Explorer 10 flash player activex version 11.9.900.170 plug-in version 11.9.900.170 used by Firefox

Problem started end of November when Miniclip.com forced update of flash player to the above version - this was when they started to play an advertising video in the game box before you could start.

Have screen shots of IE10 and Firefox26 side by side showing clearly the problem - how can these be uploaded for you to see? email? website? this place seems to be text only?

In meanwhile grandkids and self have learned to use IE10 instead of Firefox which we prefer. Their home Windows XP has same Flash Player in Firefox and it works fine.

Have uploaded two Screenshots on Media Gallery.
