Please "forward" this to the Firefox development team for consideration!

Proposing the dialog box text should become:

"Firefox is designed by Mozilla, a global community of contributors and developers, all working together to keep the Web open, public, and accessible to all."

The added comma after "public" above, is referred to as an "Oxford comma" (see Rule #1 at http://www.grammarbook.com/punctuation/commas.asp ). It should be used because this section is a three-part adjectival series with "open," "public," and "accessible" each referring back to how "the Web" should be kept for us all!

As with Boolean ANDing, using "public and accessible" without a comma after "public," binds them together to tightly for a three part series of adjectives!

This support webpage cannot upload a screenshot for some reason, but you all know how to see the about dialog in Firefox for yourselves! Someone should please also add what types of images work best for uploading screenshots next to "Add Images:" on this submission webpage too.

Thanks!

I have tried all suggestions in articles relating to 'links in Thunderbird not opening in Firefox.' None of them work. The Thunderbird community said it was a problem with a setting in Firefox, that is, how Firefox handles Thunderbird.

The issue is, one link will usually open if it is the first time I click a link in Thunderbird. After that I cannot open any links to Firefox, and each click on a link in Thunderbird (including the first one) produces an additional firefox.exe in Task Manager (see image). Each of these Firefox iterations are generally 49,000+K. They do not seem to interfere with Firefox's operation.

I also cannot right click to 'open link in browser.' Only copying link location and pasting it into the browser is working for me. this has been fairly recent with the last two upgrades to Thunderbird and the recent upgrades in Firefox.

I am running Win 7 Pro.

Any suggestions?

It all started when I wanted to print a recipe for dinner from my laptop to our lexmark wireless printer. i was able to print it but it was faint b/c "low on black ink'" was the reason ... new ink cartridge was installed - but "low on black ink" popped up. So hubby put in new ink cartridge but "low on black ink" showed up again. he restarted/cleaned the printer. still same message. he called lexmark "customer service" and hubby followed their directions for 4 hours. then i was told to quit firefox - i had many pages open b/c of our home remodel project so that i could show our contractor what i wanted. i was in the final stages of putting links in a folder when i was told to quit firefox. how do i retrieve those links. there's no history to restore.

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???

In addition to messages about Flash Player possibly being unsafe, when I click on the message I'm taken to the page regarding Java. I do have the latest Java add-on installed & activated as well. I've not checked to see if this affects content, but I'll be testing extensively in the next 24 hours by streaming sports events. I've made no changes to any Firefox options (other than add-ons), and I've tried all the suggestions available on your forum - downloading/installing add-ons produce no error messages.

This is neither urgent nor important, so if this is the only report, low priority.

This is what drove me away from Firefox last night & went back to Google Chrome.

I cannot sign in to Twitter at all. I click sign in & the page just refreshes, absolutely nothing happens. I'm not entering the wrong password, nothing like that. Everything is correct, I've tried this numerous times, this happened last night I tried using Firefox. I gave up & uninstalled it.

www.gmail.com doesn't load for me at all.

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?
