i've seen around the forums questions concerning the warning for enabling full screen, and i have no issues with the permission-giving warning.

my question is specifically when you are ALREADY in full screen, and your mouse goes to the edge of the display, and a warning that says something like:

<insert web address here> is now full screen. Press ESC to exit.

- appears. how do you remove/disable that warning? it's annoying esp. when you're playing a game and accidentally aim near the **upper edge of the screen. (i'm playing Kings Road on facebook btw lol) any help would be appreciated :)

Despite having two different antivirus programs on my PC, which suprisingly do work together, this one seems to have slipped through the net.... I had this problem once before whereby I was surfing the net and suddenly Firefox dissappeared, on restarting it I was prompted to install "Better Surf", which I ignored. Now history has repeated itself, firefox crashed and on restart I've been asked to install "Better Surf Plus 1.1"... from C:/program files/ BetterSurfPlus - with the text at the top: "Another program on your computer would like to modify Firefox with the following add-on"

I have ignored this prompt, and yet going to the tools>addons menu, it is listed there but disabled and no option to remove it. One of my antivirus programs detected the master DLL file and has quarantined it... but it did this with Better Surf version 1, yet somehow I've 'been updated' to a newer version.

Whilst I'm not sure if this currently poses a problem since it's in quarantine, my main query is simply:

- Where Has This Come From?

My antivirus programs disable auto-downloads, and scan everything that is downloaded - which leaves me to think that a firefox addon currently active is downloading malware through a back door. Anybody got any ideas? thanks.

I'd like to prevent Firefox from remembering login data. Specifically, my login name for Websites. When I go to eBay, for example, and start to type-in my username, Firefox suggests the proper name, signifying that it's stored somewhere. I know the login info can be cleared, but can it be prevented from saving in the first place?

I just started having a problem on a couple websites when I stream movies. The audio is out of sync with the video. I have experienced this a few times in the past and could stop the playback and restart it to solve the problem. That is not fixing the problem now. I keep my cache cleared out so that is not the culprit.

It's only on a couple websites and they always played fine before. How do I track down the problem?

                                          thanks.

Hello, since a day or two (22/nov/2013) youtube is not displayed proprely, in fact the whole page is a real mess and its unusable under firefox. I had to use chrome to watch videos today because of that.

I have the latest flash updates, same goes for firefox.

I made a screenshot of the whole things, but it doesnt seem like I can include it to this post.

Now I can't do that anymore because the X is gone from the tabs. I would like to get the X back onto my tabs. Can I do this and if so, how?

I am running OSX 10.9 Maverick on a Macbook Pro . I observe this problem in Firefox 25.1 The scroll bars in any application window all dissapear after about a second. If you resize the window or select an item with subdirectories in a list, the scroll bar in the pane you are in reappears, but it does not dwell long enough to allow you to move a cursor over it. (What is the point of making it dissapear anyway?) Two finger scrolling does not work for some reason, using a function and direction key or just a direction key works to scroll only in some websites but not all of them. This little bit of cleverness, if intentional is both un-needed and dysfunctional.

I have tried the remedies suggested in response to questions from two other users but with no effect. What might be the interesting reason for Firefox to exhibit this surprising, non-standard behaviour? Kind regards \ Jan Altena
