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.

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

Is there a possibility of having the browser configured to have a speed dial page or desktop that will provide the ability to group similar links into a folder rather than saving them to the phones desktop?

When I try to open the site extratorrent.cc , it just connects to facebook.com for no reason. I tried to connect to the correct address in 3 different ways: 1. From bookmark 2. By typing the address 3. From search engines

But no matter what, it redirects me to facebook or say directly connects to facebook.com It happened with another website but I changed its address in the bookmark and it solved. But this one is not solving. My cache was cleared. I did not try again to clear the cache and check. IE and Chrome are working fine.

EDIT: Problem solved. Reset firefox and it solved the issue.

Every time I try to log into my e-mail account on Yahoo using Firefox, I get one of these messages:

XML Parsing Error: unexpected parser state Location: jar:file:///C:/Program%20Files/Mozilla%20Firefox/browser/omni.ja!/chrome/browser/content/browser/aboutNetError.xhtml Line Number 397, Column 54:
&netTimeout.longDesc;

Or

Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at uk-mg42.mail.yahoo.com.

   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.

When I log into it through Internet Exploer, I don't have any problems like this, but I need it sorting because the fonts are unreadable.

I have tried fixing the problem using the steps contained here, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can but none of them have worked.

Is this feature available for FF, I might just be missing how to set it up.

It is so much easier to have the whole form filled in automatically (Name,address,phone, etc.)

I like firefox, but the lack of this feature is making me reconsider switching back to Google Chrome

If FF doesn't have this, hopefully they are considering it.

Thanks in advance
