I DO NOT tolerate 'Auto-Update' and I DO NOT install ANY automatic add-ons pushed by ANY application without know what the HELL it is. I want to know what it is, and more important, how to DISABLE IT. There's a reason Mac's don't get viruses and there's a bigger reason why managing a fleet of 1000 Macs in a Fortune 50 company that we don't tolerate automatic upgrades. Every launch I get the following:

"DWPInstaller" is an application downloaded from the Internet. Are you sure want to open it? Firefox.app downloaded this file today at 2:33 PM.

There is NO setting to disable this app, or even see what it is.

How can I search my bookmark tags for a phrase, to find all tags that contain that phrase?

I have plenty of tags on bookmarks. If I can't remember my tag's name, but remember that it's about "cooking" how do I search for tag names with that word?

The search bar on the upper right of bookmarks gives all urls with the word. I want to search my list of tags itself.

Also I'd like to do the same with keywords.

When searching history, I'd like a more sophisticated search that lets me pick the time range, and tags.

Also when viewing site history, I can see them by last date viewed. I'd like to view by date first viewed. (Last modifed isn't it)

Thanks!

Since 41.0 YouTube and Vimeo videos don't play even though the video controls show that playback is in progress. True for embed, Facebook, and YouTube pages. On Youtube, video will buffer to 100% but still won't play. First frame of video is visible with both but stays a still image. Flashblock is installed but disabled.

Hello.

I'm having a problem with firefox and it is getting really annoying.

When i search for something on the top right search box, Firefox opens a website with my search already put into the site (For example ebay or amazon but it is irrelevant because i search something like "How to...") But i do not want to do this, It has never opened a site i want.

I have also disabled every search engine apart from google in the "Search" settings.

I have also refreshed firefox and reinstalled it multiple times.

Thanks

Hello,

Ive been using firefox for a while now, and until now, ive never experienced a problem like this.

Firefox crashed last night while i was asleep, and when i woke up this morning to turn it back on, the crash reporter asked me if i wanted to restart firefox, i did so, however when it loaded, rather than asking if i wanted to restore my previous session, it loaded a blank page which had an unusual looking blank patch at the top where the tabs bar is supposed to be, with the tabs loading below it.

The tabs i had loaded were all very important to me, and i would like to find a way to restore them if possible, however i have been unable to find anything on the other help pages that describes of fixes my problem.

Please help if you are able, it would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. I apologize for not including an image of the buggy window, it didnt occur to me to take a screenshot before i closed it.

Firefox automatically upgraded itself to version 41 and now the Trusteer Rapport Endpoint Protection icon is no longer shown to the right of the address bar. It is still there and working in Internet Explorer. The same situation is happening on 2 PCs, both Windows 7 64 bit.

Surely Trusteer Rapport is a widely used feature - one would have thought a new release of Firefox would have been tested to work with it.

Hi

I have added the "Close All Tabs" ICON to my toolbar. (please see screenshot). I did this as I could not find a way to add "Close all Tabs to right, as a right click action". No worries, I like this ICON very much, maybe more as I am tired of right clicking all the time.


There is one 1 thing I wish to change before its perfect.


When I click on "Close All Tabs" ICON, fx,

1) correctly closes all my unpinned tabs. I like this

2) But then it adds a new tab. I dont want this -- How do I stop fx doing this step?

I always have 3-4 pinned tabs, so there is always at least 1 tab in existence.

Thankyou for your help.

why can't I sort my main bookmarks list with one click?

sorting individual folders is nice, but it doesn't help when I have hundreds of bookmarks. I am sure I used to be able to do this? it does work in chrome & IE & is a basic sorting function, I am surprised it is so hard to find???

I have been trying to get firefox to play 60fps videos on youtube (either flash or HTML5, preferably the latter) but to do this, I need to enable hardware acceleration on firefox (it's the only solution I've found so far) and doing so causes random Blue Screens. I might mention that this only happens in firefox and without hardware acceleration, my youtube videos don't even play at above 20fps. I've been looking for a solution to this issue for days now and haven't found anything, don't understand what's happening.
