I have my browser set to restore the previous session when I open Firefox, and new tabs to open blank. With these settings, I used to be able to open new windows and have my homepage load, while keeping the behaviors previously mentioned intact, but when I open a new window now, I get a blank page.

Is there any way to restore the previous behavior, or are all tabs now seen as the same now, whether they're opened as part of new windows or existing windows?

When I went into Firefox Sync, I found that it was linked to my airport via its Mac address. I've removed it, but since then, my airport Mac Address is still listed under "Sync Options" and it comes up with all boxes checked (passwords, browsing, etc.) When I try to uncheck them and click "OK," it returns back to being checked next time that I look. Is this normal? Or if not, how does it happen? Thank you.

Hello, I noticed that a website which I've never visited (until I noticed it today) is listed in my 'Advanced' 'Network' preferences and even though I can temporarily remove it via the 'Clear Now' button, it later returns.

I've googled the issue and read bewildering lines of code, but I'm not so savvy to know where making those types of changes might lead!

I've got Firefox 33.1 on Mac 10.6.8 and hope someone in the Mozilla community may have a fix.

Thanks

In previous betas of firefox on a mac, the three-finger scroll on the trackpad used to do full page up and full page down (as it does in other applications). In version 4 beta 7, for some reason the three touch trackpad action now opens the 'Firefox Group your Tabs' feature. I've searched in the preferences menu and can't see where to edit or fix this. Can anyone help?

Alice,

Flash does work fine in Safari, so it seems to be just beta 7 that has this problem. I don't see any extensions that might be blocking flash (and haven't installed anything new between beta 6 and 7), but I will try a testing profile shortly.

Looking over the release notes, I don't see anything particularly specific to this. Possibly WebGL is interfering, or the new accelerated rendering that went in? I'm not sure how to go about checking if either of those caused the problem.

After I click View/Full Screen on the Firefox menu bar, I lose the main FF Menu bar. When I hit the esc key, the screen remains locked in full screen view mode. Then I have to reboot my computer to get back to the default FF menu and display mode.

Why doesn't the esc key work the way it works when I'm viewing videos in full screen mode?

Firefox used to keep me logged into the Hotmail.com email site (https://login.live.com), but now it always logs me off when I quit Firefox. I have clicked "Keep me logged in" on this page. I have set Security panel > checked Remember passwords for sites, and there is nothing in my Exceptions list. In Preferences > Privacy I have set Remember History so I accept all cookies. I am not using Private Browsing. There are two live.com cookies showing in my Firefox cookies list. But, when I look at Security > Saved passwords nothing that looks like a Live.com, Hotmail.com or MSN site is listed is there.

I can stay logged in after quitting and restarting the browser for another account I have in Hotmail using Safari 5.1.5.

Any suggestions as to how I can stay logged in to Hotmail with Firefox 11.0?

I asked this question in April, but it received only one useless response. Nothing has happened since then, while newer versions of Firefox have been released.

Please click Javascript (250.00 MB) on the page http://aia.lmsal.com/aia_cadence/aia_0193_rdiff_orig_20120623_0630/AIA_0193_RDIFF_ORIG_20120623_0630.html. It runs without problem under Google Chrome and Microsoft Internet Explorer, but using Firefox newer than version 15, partially blank frames appear, making it hard to view the movie.

I first thought the problem was combined with Mac OS (mine is 10.6.8), but the same problem of blank frames is noted in Firefox 22 on Windows 7.

Therefore, I must conclude Firefox has started to screw up on Javascript since version 17 (or 16, which failed to be released.)

So, to developers, please check whatever changes were made in version 17 (or 16) as to how to handle Javascript movies.

Ab-so-USELESS.

This is on a Mac I used the "Plugin check" to make sure all the plug-ins were up to date. It said the Java plugin needs to be updated. That takes me to the Java page, which says that Apple supplies its own version of Java and to use Apple Update. Apple update says the system is up to date.

The plugin checker should report an error only if the version of Java can be updated. It cannot be on a mac.

I have removed all logos from my bookmarks toolbar (which is way too complicated to do btw) Since installing the new Firefox, whenever I save an image from a site (which is part of my job) all these stupid logos pop-up in my bookmarkbar. When I quit and restart firefox they are gone, but as soon as I save another image they're back again.

I thought this was bc of that stupid animated download arrow you added in the toolbar but I have removed that and these stupid logos still reappear whenever I save an image.

Help would be much appreciated.

On a Mac running OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) or Earlier, Plugin Check indicates both Java Applet Plug-In and QuickTime Plug-in are out of date.

Steps to Reproduce: Tools -> Add-ons -> Plugins -> Check to see if your plugins are up to date

Results show: Java Applet Plug-in Update Now QuickTime Plug-in 7.6.6 Update Now

Explanation: 1. Prior to OS X 10.7 (Mountain Lion) Apple provided Java. Apple has not provided an update. [java.com's update requires Mac OS X (10.7.3 version and above)] 2. There is no update to QuickTime Plug-in 7.6.6 for some Macs; it is most recent for OS X 10.6.3 through 10.6.8.

Can Plugin Check be fixed? Can Macs get better support? (Some unaddressed bugs go back to Firefox 3.5 and before!)
