In Version 29 of FireFox the "folder" or "link" icons of the bookmark toolbar are stuck VISIBLE.

I simply wish to hide/delete the icon, showing only the text as I had before. The icons are basically meaningless and I don't need them to be visible.

Please suggest the correct path for adjusting this.

Thx.

My old computer crashed, but the content on the hardrive is intact. I'm on a Mac. I have a new imac with OS Sierra, how do up date Firefox on my new computer so it has the same history and bookmarks as the firefox on my crashed computer. I read your h elp files but they confuse me. Years ago there was a "history" file and I could just transfer that over, but now I see that doesn't exsist. Please help.

I will never understand how this machine behaves and why the matters addressed always requires some kind of technical approach that always misses the very matter at hand.

This time an obviously necessary function disappeared. The "back"- function has to be presented as it was, since the pages visited does not always allow backing. When giving feedback, the "submit"- button did not work.

I am exposed to large amounts of text that makes no real sense, as if the internet preceeded the playing of a real musical instrument, or as if the standards for typewriters suddenly had become obsolete.

The information given is either requiring the understanding of principles never really mentioned, or "user friendly" in a manner that suposes that I have no idea on how a "power on- off"- button works and the like.

Never heard of a "technical retard"? That's me, and you!

I cannot use iCloud.com in Firefox at all. Starting from the login prompt there are many issues. From the e-mail field, you cannot use Tab to move to password field, only mouse. From the password field, you do not see the eye icon to show password (IE only?), and cannot use the clickable arrow to continue, only enter. Once signed in, you can click any of the icons such as Mail or Calender, but not the Help "?" in the corner. From inside any and all of the services (Mail, Reminders, etc) you lose complete control of any of the buttons, options, scrolling menus - everything. The back button on the website (iCloud icon) does not work, forcing you to use the browser back button. Clicking on another service presents the same issues - absolutely nothing is usable, clickable, or scrollable. It seems like Javascript has completely failed - though that is an uneducated guess in the dark.

This occurs on Windows 8 64bit and Firefox 18/19 Beta. I have gone through many troubleshooting steps and it has made no difference in the slightest. I have cleared all caches several times, from inside Firefox and through 3rd party utilities. Tested in Safe Mode to no avail. Manually removed several add-ons, checked all add-ons are fully up-to-date (as always), and reset all Firefox settings to default (except Hardware Acceleration that causes graphics issues in 8 - does not help iCloud.com enabled, though). It works fully in all other browsers with similar add-ons without issue. I have not done a full, complete reset and profile removal - that is next. However, I have a gut feeling that is not the issue at hand. I performed a clean install of Windows 8 and a clean install of Firefox less than 2 weeks ago.

I had selected "Don't open tabs until selected" but all of a sudden they are all opening on startup. The "Don't open tabs until selected" option is not there anymore when I go to Options. What can I do? This is urgent because I have multiple tabs open and they're all going strong at the same time and some of them are YouTube videos!

Shortly stated - All my Google Fonts look the same in Firefox 3 (latest build) and Firefox 4 beta 9

I have tried disabling/enabling all plugins/extensions one by one and all at once.

I have tried removing Firefox 3 completely and installing Firefox 4 Beta to no effect on Google Web Fonts.

I've also made sure that Tools > Options has Javascript enabled as well as "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above" - Advanced is enabled.

I need help please, I like to do all my web development in Firefox so going between Chrome and Firefox (works in Chrome just fine) is a bit of a pain.

Here's the screenshot of how my Firefox see Google Web Fonts (btw same applies to any page with Google Fonts or Font Previewer of Google.)

I can no longer hear sound from Youtube videos. Vimeo.com still makes sound. So does Chrome on Youtube and media playback from my local sound files.

Today we have started getting the following error when trying to access bing.com

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.bing.com. Invalid OCSP signing certificate in OCSP response. Error code: SEC_ERROR_OCSP_INVALID_SIGNING_CERT

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

What is strange is that this is happening (1) only in Firefox, and (2) only on some of our computers. We have a mixture of wired and wireless computers on our home network. I have checked computer times. Firefoxes are all running 53.0.3 on Windows 7. Setting security.ssl.enable_ocsp_stapling to false resolves the issue, but only while the setting is false.

Thanks for your help!

I've been using Firefox 3.6.x and 4.0.x beta side-by-side without problems, using separate profiles and the -no-remote startup option.

Until recently, when I installed Minefield. Now both Minefield and Beta are crashing almost immediately after startup. For a long time, both have been crashing automatically after the startup pages finished loading.

Now Minefield seems a tiny bit more stable and only crashes as soon as I interact with it (switching active tab, resize window, load an URL). Another difference I notice is that Minefield (4.0b7pre) no longer checks for plugin compatibility, while Beta (4.0b5) still does this. After this check, Beta gives an error "The operation can not be completed because of an internal failure. A secure network communication has not been cleaned up correctly", while Minefield just starts.

All versions work fine in Save mode, even after the "The operation can not be completed" error in Beta...

I've also tested with newly created profiles, but did not see anything different there.

Until the most recent update the dropdown listing of available sites in the search box was easily legible and simple to use. Being able to target one's searches so readily and conveniently was one of Firefox's most attractive features.

Now I'm confronted with a panel of mostly indecipherable and in many cases confusingly similar icons. I hate it and want my simple verbal listing back!

Yes, mousing over the icons and hovering will reveal what they represent. But having to do this every time makes what was a quick, convenient routine irritatingly slow and clunky.

Please at least let us choose whether to have icons or a simple listing. Please...

I just recently got a new laptop, and since the minute I've installed firefox on it there has been lag when scrolling webpages. It seems to start off not too badly, with there being some stuttering when I first open firefox, however it seems like the longer I'm browsing the worse it gets, to the point where sometimes I'll start scrolling and then a second later firefox will just jump to the bottom of the page. Internet Explorer and Chrome both have perfectly smooth scrolling.

I've tried numerous things to fix it already, this is some of the stuff I can remember trying: -Turning off hardware acceleration and smooth scrolling -Starting in safe mode -Complete reinstall with new profile -Updating graphics card and intel drivers

Specs of the new laptop: Core i7 GTX 970M 16Gb RAM

I have spent literally hundreds of hours over the past year and a half or so trying to figure out why Firefox and Adobe FlashPlayer cannot coexist peacefully. The latest issue that I have found has to do with Firefox refusing or unable to use the "sandbox" technology that every other browser apparently uses. I occasionally use Google's Chrome browser and have begun exploring Microsoft's new Edge since I updated my OS to Win10 about a week ago. Neither platform has any problem whatsoever with Adobe FlashPlayer content. I have been a very dedicated and contented FireFox user for at least the past five years except for this problem which has become unendurable since my Win10 “upgrade.” With Win8.1, I completely booted all traces of Adobe FlashPlayer off my computer and simply ignored content that depended on it. This does not seem to work since my “upgrade.” Now, every single site I access that has any Adobe Flash dependent content in it brings my entire FireFox browser to a screeching halt for approximately a minute. I frequently end up using the old three finger salute to end the grid block that has become standard operating procedure with my current use of FireFox. I am brought to a point where I have to consider abandoning FireFox completely until this “disconnect” is at last addressed and permanently resolved by Mozilla FireFox. I have tried all the "safe mode" fixes. I have updated every updateable parameter imaginable. I appeal to anyone in the community who has a workable fix for this problem as a last resort before I move my online activities to another browser. I will respond quickly to anyone who offers help and needs me to try something to fix this. Thank you for any assistance with this longtime problem.
