Since a recent upgrade of Firefox links in several websites no longer work. They used to be fine and I loved Firefox. The problems do not exist with other browsers e.g. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome. More specifically, on talktalk.co.uk the links to news items do not work, nor do those to "My Account." On Barclays.co.uk the link to print my statement doesn't work - similarly on MBNA.com There are several suggested solutions around the internet but all are complex, none so far have worked and I don't see why I should need to carry out the suggested tweaks. Firefox used to be great - now it isn't. The problem seems to be with the upgrade. Please help me to get my Firefox to where it should be.

I recently cleared recent history including form and search history. I have now unchecked this box and am using a particular form evey week but it continues not to remember the details I have input several times since I cleared the history. In the Privacy option it is set to "Remember History". If I change this to "use custom settings for history" it shows that "remember form history" is checked.

This seems to be a fault or do I need to keep the privacy setting on "use custom settings for history"? I am using Windows 7 on a 64 bit Toshiba Laptop.

Thank you.

I have spent the entire weekend trying to get the Firefox beta 35 to work. What I have found is that *all* extensions fail to work with the exception of Places Maintenance. I can not download any extension Firefox is so famous for. The error is something like "cannot install 'plugin-name' in it's current state." Enabling any extension require a FF restart, even Places Maintenance. Trying to remove an extension fails and must be done manually.

I am on Windows 7 Premium desktop Firefox, 32 bit. I "committed" myself to FF 35 last night (which meant clearing history and cache on exit because the extension "Expire History by Days" was no longer working), when I discovered that 35 was not playing nice with some sites using Flash. It was a capricious thing. Many sites worked as normal but some would not render at all. Examples: http://www.wunderground.com/US/WI/La_Crosse.html

http://www.weather.com/weather/5day/l/Hustler+WI+54637:4:US

First time I have has a problem with a Firefox beta, but it is definitely not ready for prime time. I realize FF is attempting to get away from what we are calling "Proprietary add-ons" but FF 35 in its present state will just fill the Moz Support forums with millions of complaints (guess I am one of the first). I have at present 1 extension (the only one that works on 35), the above mentioned "Places Maintenance."

I thought you might like this report as "user input." God knows I have tried...I must have downloaded 35 at least a dozen times and then been forced back to 34.0.5. So I am back on 34.0.5

I have submitted a bug report here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1108196

Let me know if anyone else is having these problems or anyone needs more information. I'd love to help fix this. I know some of you good support people have probably tried 35. Are you having the same difficulties?

Below is my (34.0.5 but the same as I had on 35 last night with the exception of "Version") trouble shooting information minus a million entries for my printer:

Theme and Font Size Changer plug-in forcing unwanted popups

Hello, I've been using the Theme and Font Size Changer plug-in for some time. However, lately (and it's getting more and more frequent) their website pops up in my browser and redirects me to it, without my permission. It interrupts my work, and it's been happening at least once a week lately. This is the page that pops up: http://barisderin.com/?p=516

Note that when I say "popup" it's not what you think of as a traditional popup. It can't be blocked by a popup blocker. It's opening their webpage in my browser, in a new tab, and switching me from the tab I'm working to, to that tab. I don't know how they do it, but it's inappropriate, intolerable, and unacceptable!!

You will notice that there is a place to post messages, on that page. I've tried to post a message there, and ask them to stop hijacking me. But in order to post the message, I have to allow a cross-site scripting request, and my NoScript plugin blocks it. Both of these practices are inappropriate for a Firefox plugin!!

So I have no way of getting this message to them directly. Will someone please let me know how I can contact them, to ask for these interruptions to stop?

And note, that if these interruptions don't stop, I will be uninstalling their plugin!!

Thank you very much  :-)

Why is it every time you force some BS update on us you break EVERYTHING? Ok so the search bar is a new UI that I guess incorporates some of the addons that were not included. Fine. But again without asking about compatibility FF installs this. So great lets try your new search UI and see how it compares, before I try to find out how to revert... Problem is search bar is GONE! Just a big empty spot and no "search" in customize! So now I have to find out why it is gone, how to bring back and PROBABLY revert. And I must do this all WITH NO SEARCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And it has been installed for 5 mins, have a feeling I am going to love this update!

Hello,

After I updated to FF 34.0, whenever I restart my FF, it does not restore the previous tabs. Instead, it opened all of my home pages.

I went to look under History and all of the following are greyed out: Tabs from Other Devices; Restore Previous Session; Recently Closed Tabs and Recently Closed Windows.

I went to my Profile folder and found the "sessionstore-backups" folder and there are two files in it: recovery.bak and recovery.js, both showed the latest date and time. And there is no "sessionstore" files anywhere in the Profile folder.

My question is: Why are all the options under History are greyed out? I used "Undo Close Tab" add-ons, but it's not working. When I click on the context menu, nothing happens.

I have searched this forum about this issue but none of the solutions worked for me.

Any suggestions/comments are much appreciated. Thank you.

A couple of weeks ago, I ran a comprehensive malware removal process. Thereafter, my WOT (Web of Trust) add-on disappeared from my search function even though it shows that it is enabled. I downloaded it again, to no avail. I don't know if the malware removal process has anything to do with the disappearance of WOT or not. I am reluctant to search online since I don't know which websites are considered "safe". Are there alternative rating programs in addition to WOT and AVG's that are recommended? AVG often conflicts with WOT's ratings so I'd like to get the latter back.
