Mozilla just did some kind of an upgrade and I've lost the option to save files to anything but my downloads folder.

How do I "right click" and save files to specific areas or folders in my computer. I don't like having to open the download folder and drag the files to where I want them to be.

Thanks!!

One of the sites I visit frequently is a news and social media monitoring app, and they have structured their URL naming convention as https://xxxxx.app.company.com/, where xxxxx shows the version of the app you are using.

Is there a way to edit the hostname in that file, so that as the updates occur, I can simply pop the new URL in where the old one was?

Why does Firefox work better if I disable Cisco OpenH264?

Videos embedded into webpages had started not playing for more than a couple of seconds. I could drag to a new part of the video and always the same thing. (No - it wasn't bufferering!)

BBC iplayer had the same problem.

I disabled the Cisco OpenH264 add-on and everything worked again.

I didn't turn it on so it must have happened in an upgrade. My settings are all straight out of the box - I'm not a computer expert - I use Firefox as it comes.

My question - is this normal? Have I solved my own problem or do I need OpenH264?

Thnaks, Andrew

I have added the Extension "Awesome Screenshots" to Firefox as I need to capture web pages in my job. But every time I try to Print, either using File Print or the tool bar/menu, I can't print and get this error message: Printer Error ! There was an unexpected problem while printing. I have no problem printing Awesome Screenshots from Chrome or Safari, so it has to be a Firefox issue. Please Help!?

Why has Firefox become so slow? I hate Google but I've had to switch to Chrome. I'm on a top of the range Mac Mavericks with latest Firefox browser.

Never mind the volunteers! Why the hell can't the creators of Firefox sort this out? But if they don't want to bother then I'll just forget Firefox and carry on with Chrome.

I've tried all the cute little so-called fixes, cleared the cache, even got some silly thing called Speedy Fox but none of it ever works. Please Firefox, just sort it out.

Today I reinstalled Silverlight 8 times and updated Firefox to v.36.0. I also reinstalled the Widevine Media Optimizer. When I updated the Widevine component in Google Chrome, Silverlight began to work in Chrome. So I'm thinking some component in Firefox needs to be updated for it to work in Firefox

In Firefox, Silverlight won't load at Netflix or at Amazon Instant Video. It did work consistently for about a year, but today it quit.

At Netflix I get error code 2103 with reinstall instructions, at Amazon I just get reinstall instructions

I have a MacBook Pro 2.3 GHz, 8GB RAM, Mac OS 10.9.5

What else can I try?

The screen view of a file no longer represents what is happening with the file. Attached are the Firefox version of the file and the Adobe PDF of the same file. Note that the spacing between the quantities is incorrect in Firefox and correct in the PDF of the same information. Also, when I try to add spaces in Firefox, the information does not appear to move, but if a create a PDF of the information those spaces appear as you would expect. This is a big problem for us.

My clippings would not upload using your Image uploader.

My Imac running Mavericks has been functioning perfectly and I have never had a problem uploading files to sites or applications online until two days ago when suddenly I cannot upload anything to any place within FIREFOX. I have found a few places where I can drag and drop a file to upload it but not many (including here - tried to drag an image to upload for you and it froze the page, reloaded it and now I am typing this whole mess over again!) I am a graphic designer and send files through email, and I also build and update websites for several clients, so this is a HUGE problem. I have NO trouble uploading or finding files within applications or programs on my computer itself even now, but the minute I try to open the finder to select and upload a file into FIREFOX I get a blank finder window with just the spinning "loading" symbol and it NEVER finishes and load the window. This is unacceptable. ---- By the way, I also have a Toshiba laptop and it has NO problems uploading files into Firefox. Does anyone know if there is a Firefox patch or something for Mac computers that can help?

I used to move the browser window around by grabbing the tiny space between tabs and the top edge, but since the last three or four updates, I have had great difficulty finding the right spot. It often takes me three or four attempts before the window will move. Super annoying. Am I the only one with this problem? Is it a Firefox thing or a MacOSX thing?

This happens 2 or 3 times a day - every couple of hours. Then, I need to restart the laptop and clean out files (I use ccleaner). Is there a way to fix this ( system running out of application cache). Thought 16 GB ram would be big enough. Thanks for your help.

In a half hour of trying to navigate around foxfire i can get Foxfire not responding, forcing me to force quit. And it can take me another 3x to get you back on. Each time i click to open you, i get the message not responding.

I like you folks, but so much time and frustration is driving me crazy. I have to say, i do not have this problem with Safari, i prefer you, but Safari doesn't waste my time.

What am i doing wrong?
