So I have recently bought a new laptop with Windows 8, and I installed Firefox. For the most part it works fine but I have noticed, for some reason, some webpages do not load properly. It looks as if only the HTML of the site has loaded.

Now I can easily fix this by clearing the cache, but only for the same problem to occur a few hours later and this is really annoying me. The problem still happens in safe mode, and other browsers seem to work fine. I have also tried reinstalling but not a full reset.

Here is a link to what Facebook looks like when this happens: http://oi40.tinypic.com/2gwcbxk.jpg

Please could you help me solve this?

SVAR (The Swedish National Archive) demands a plugin, djVu, for viewing scanned documents. When it still refused to work after installing djVu it turns out that my webreader should work with 32-bit and my new pc is delivered with 64-bit Windows 8. Is there a way to shift between 32-bit and 64-bit Firefox?

When I download a file, I used to get an option to "save as", instead of just save. If I download a file I like to immediately download it into the appropriate folder on my desktop (not just one folder.) Instead I have to download it, go into the downloads folder and move it. I do a lot of downloading for work and this is just an extra step that I find so annoying. Is there a way to change this, or and "add on" feature to get "save as" as an option? I get this option on Internet Explorer, but I do not like using IE :(
