Hi!

I have an Acer laptop with Windows 8 on it, and I'm running the latest version of Firefox. Since the last update I have encountered a number of issues. (I have no idea how the images are going to be uploaded, but I'll try to make it clear)

1st issue Youtube and Vimeo. Whenever I try to watch a video in Fullscreen, it won't go completely fullscreen. This does not happen with Dailymotion.

2nd issue My homepage isn't really working. I've set www.google.hu as my homepage, but it won't load. Also, a new search engine has made it's way into my browser, and it is really annoying. It automatically changes my homepage to Websearches, and switches my default search engine from Google to Websearcher.


For some reason I can't upload the images now, but I'll try later.

I'm getting so tired of having that darn 'block pop-up windows' checked..and it doesn't do a darn thing. Why am I getting garbage sites when I'm going to my normal browsing sites? (e.g. yahoo mail, etc)

I now get this weird MacVx garbage showing up everywhere and a bunch of these error messages which are annoying (I also have a Mac by the way)...it mentions 'my i.p. address' which is not correct (thank god), and it must think I'm an idiot...So....any way to resolve this before I trash my favorite browser forever???

For the last little while, I've been getting (extremely annoying) pop-up error messages that say "[JavaScript Application]" across the heading bar and "Error" in the text box on certain websites that I frequent which disrupts my ability to view content on the site(s). Because of this happening more and more often, this morning I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled the 64-bit Beta version for Windows 8.1. Since that time (about an hour ago) I've been unable to access/watch video on any sight (youtube, nhl.com, etc) When I try to access a youtube video this message appears:

"The connection has timed out The server at www.youtube.com is taking too long to respond.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web."

I'm a HUGE fan of Firefox, in fact I've haven't used anything else for years (aside from using Explorer to re-download Firefox this morning). This is obviously a big problem though, so how can I fix it?

Thanks for any help you can offer, PG

I have been hijacked by searchfusion. I tried to do a manual delete but did not find the regedit things suggested by a variety of websites. I do not want to download a "fix it" program that I will be charged for or don't trust that they are what they say they are. Can someone please tell me how to get searchfusion out? It is not under programs to be uninstalled on the control panel and does not appear in any searches on my computer so I can delete it. Thanks

An email address is automatically displayed in gmail's google search-box. This occurs only when starting Firefox, and clicking anywhere clears the box content. This anomaly only occurs on one machine, not on my laptop, which is sync to the machine in concerns. It doesn't occur in Google Chrome, etc. Small problem, but annoying, nevertheless... one is never careful enough with virus and the likes. Thanks, Pierre

Zoom out factor is too restrictive.: Firefox for Android renders some complex sites designed for Desktop poorly, Feedly (https://feedly.com/) for example. The problem is there just too many things should be displayed but I cannot zoom out freely because Firefox doesn't allow me to zoom out that much. I've set

zoom.minPercent = 1 browser.ui.zoom.force-user-scalable = true

However, it seems there are other rules that prevent me zoom out more, it is far from the 1%. The attached images are the smallest zoom factor Firefox allowed. I'm using OnePlus One, which has a 5.5" 1080p display.

Please relax the zoom factor if you cannot render all websites well.

I lost track of exactly when this started happening, but Flash videos (YouTube, etc) all flicker when I watch them on Firefox.

I tried disabling all extensions and all non-Flash plugins but the Cisco H264 codec, but I still get the flickering.

Oddly, if I restart Firefox in safe mode, there is no flickering. Yet, my impressions is that safe mode does nothing but disable all extensions.

Does anyone have any idea of what may be happening?
