Since i upgraded to 25.0 i have noticed that Firefox isn't signing me out. I have Norton Id safe but this should not be the issue. when i shut the computer down and restart it, launch firefox, it opens in the exact session that i was in prior to closing without requiring my password. No, i don't have the remember me setting on. obviously, this is disconcerting. Any suggestions?

Download error during Save Image As makes Firefox unresponsive

As I too often do, after saving a web page with cmd-S, I mistakenly closed the tab while the page was still "downloading", and as usual, that created the annoying "Download Error" dialog.

(Aside: I use the Mozilla Archive Format 3.0.0 extension, but still, the page is in the cache, so go figure why this error always happens.)

This time, I had moved on to another Save activity, this time Save Image As, from the context menu, in my now-front tab, just as the error dialog appeared.

This combo resulted in having the Download Error in one dialog and the Save Image As dialog both open at the same time, and none of the dialog buttons or available controls would dismiss any of the dialogs. I could press them, I could activate the menus, but Quit was unavailable from the File menu. So Firefox wasn't frozen or unresponsive in that way, but it was stuck. I couldn't get rid of the dialogs or do anything else until they were gone.

I force closed with Activity Monitor.

I realize there was an extension involved, but it still seems like I should have been able to activate the buttons or the close X on at least one of the dialog boxes.

I don't need an answer, but I wanted to tell you about the issue. Thanks.

I've tried clicking on this link to a allow you to enrol to vote in Australia on my mac, but everytime I do it it just reloads the page. I've been able to open it in chrome and on firefox on a pc and from that I can gather it seems to be one of those separate web apps but I don't have java installed on either of my computers so it's not a java applet. This has happened before with other links to similar styles of interactive web apps but the same thing happens, it just reloads the page with the link on it. I always just ended up doing them on a different computer or browser. I tried disabling all add-ons and allowed all pop ups but that didn't solve it. I couldn't find anyone with similar problems when I searched.

I was moving around the website and suddenly a popup came up saying there was a problem, apparently with the DNS. I clicked on "override" and "I understand the risk" but Firefox still blocked the site. I spent hours trying to go through the different "solutions" until I found one that said to go into about:config and change the setting for "network.dns.disablePrefetch", which I did. After that, the website would work again.

This morning, the site would not come up again, but I checked with "isitdownrightnow" and said it said was working. I checked the "nework..." and my change was still there. I checked the IVp6 and the website said the IVp4 was "good," but the IVp6 was "bad."

So I checked "Tools," "options", 'Advanced", "certificates", "servers" and "exceptions" and got the same view as the popup yesterday. I entered the site's address, "xyz.com" and the "override" would not respond.

I flushed my computer dns cache to be sure I wasn't still suffering from yesterday's problem, still no results. I am at a loss as to what to do next. Using Windows 7 with a broadband ISP. The site does open on Windows Internet Explorer. Can anyone please help?

I ran into a problem just yesterday when I was on Pandora.com and it would not let me skip songs even if I switched stations, and in the more peculiar case, after more than 1 hour had passed.

This problem does not occur on the desktop app, nor does it occur on Chrome. I should be able to change stations and use another 6 skips, because this is how it works, and I've used Pandora for many years now.

I tried to clear specific cookies on the site, but it did nothing. I'm not sure what else could be causing this.

Starting with v25.0, and then with 25.0.1, firefox.exe does not terminate after closing all tabs or selecting exit (red 'X' or File/Exit). I have to enter Task Manager and end the process in order to start a new Firefox session. This never happened in any previous version.

I'm running Win 7 Pro 64-bit.

Any ideas?

Hi,

Facing this bug ever since I have installed firefox. Whenever I scroll up or down on any of the webpages the text/images on the page starts apperaing blurry. I continues to appear blurry unless I change a tab or perform some other action like move mouse pointer on text/image. Basically unless the entire page (displayed content) is redrawn it continues to appear blurry.

Yesterday I bit the bullet and updated Firefox from 18 to the current version (25.0.1). The first thing I've noticed is that when I open new tabs (just open, not focus on them), the gifs in said tabs load and already start playing, even though I haven't visited that tab yet. I then come to the tab and to a gif in mid-animation. On my older version the gifs loaded and then waited until you actually went to the tab before they started playing. I don't see anyone else complaining about this.

I have a input type image control in my page, the controls holds some custom attributes including a "value" attribute name, it also has a scr="..." attribute with a valid path for the image to be displayed.

Firefox 25.0.1 will render the value content instead of the "scr" image.

<input id="imgProduct" type="image" onclick="showMenu(this, event);" src="/images/icons/coquette/png/16x16/comment.png" propname="MOQ" distributorid="25"  parentvalue="25" value="50"  title="Changed in this context" ></input>
