I just got the new Google Nexus 4 and have been running Firefox mobile as my primary browser but I have recently discovered a problem. When I download a file (such as a PDF) off of a site to read with Android's quickoffice, no file goes into Android's downloads app. I assumed the file was only bring temporarily bring downloaded for a one time view but when I tried this same process with Chrome mobile, a file was put in the downloads app. I installed a third party for browser for my phone and looked in the downloads folder it showed for my phone and discovered the files I had been downloading with Firefox in it. It seems Firefox doesn't display files downloaded in the downloads app provided with Android which is a problem because that means without a third party for browser, you can't get rid of them. (Petty for sizes but they would eventually fill your phones storage). Is a downloads folder provided with Firefox? Can the downloads be viewed in the stock downloads app?

Recently I noticed that my R click search in google feature was missing, I tried restarting in safe mode to no avail, nor did any attempts in about:config.

I'm currently using FF 19.0.2 with Vista, and up until recently had no issues. I've also run my antiviral which is kept up to date as well as malwarebytes and even kaspersky ttsskiller all with no issues found.

Any ideas or suggestion?

Thanks

Since I updated Firefox (actually it updated itself automatically) to version 18, it never closes cleanly anymore. Whether I close it using the cross on the top right, or using the menu option File > Exit, it disappears, but remains in memory.

So next time I try to start Firefox I get the message that Firefox is still running but it is not, just the process is still in memory. Only way to solve this is to use the Task Manager and kill the firefox.exe process. Then I can start Firefox again.

This problem is reproducible on all versions since 18, including the current 19.0.2. It happens every time !

But if I install version 17.0.2, then I have no problems at all ! So it is something introduced in release 18 that broke it.

I of course tried all "suggestions" about testing extensions (same problem in safe mode, so not the problem), disabling hardware acceleration, ...

Can someone please help ? (I am more and more considering switching to Chrome as this is really annoying ...)

Untill quite recently I was able to use Firefox in the Samsung Galaxy Note 2's multi window feature. It has now disappeared. Why is this? Has the feature been removed on an update? Can I get it back? I liked this feature as it will was very useful for displaying flash pages side by side with another web. Please help. I have tried reinstalling the app but to no avail. Any help or suggestions would be great.

Locking duplicate thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/955623]

I go to www.Jardencs.com/careers. When I click on the "Career Opportunities" link I get this error message:

Request Error Forbidden directory Listing denied Close the browser and try to log on again. Error Code: 403.14.

The link has worked on my desktop computer before today, and I can open the link accessing the site through my cell phone. I just can't get it on my desktop now. Last night I installed Torch on this desktop, but I've uninstalled it since I started having this problem. The problem persists even after the uninstall.

How do I fix it?

Now, that I have loaded it back up as my main browser it still does the same thing when I'm at G+ and my gmail account but, not yet with my yuku account which FF is highly recommended their.

The worst was when it was happening in my FF tool bar but, so far it has not but, has me paranoid that it will happen again like before since it's still happening @ G+ and Gmail.

Ooo when I tried to take a screen shot for you to see what I see it went away and went back to normal again.

Is it me or is there a bug in there that I am not knowing about or is it s little glitch?

P.S. My bf has been on FF forever and has never had this problem!

Thank you so much for your undivided time, Marie =0)

I had to go back to ver.18 because the plugin container hangs in ver. 19 & 20, and it was worse in 20. also in ver. 20 there was an exe named plugin contain hang ui. to keep Firefox running even at a crawl I had to keep forcing the plugin container to close. I also do not like the fact that my bookmarks can no longer be found which forces me to go through the bookmarks mgr to back them up. I also kept looking for my downloads and finally found them in the library. Is there some way to simplify the browser like it used to be.
