I set up sync in my user acct in order to transfer everything to my admin acct. I then switched users to my admin acct and reopened sync. After successfully transferring all data, the text in the tabs blurred. I logged out of sync and closed Firefox and switched users back to my user acct and opened Firefox. Before sync it took less than a second to open. After sync it takes 3-4 seconds and all tab text is blurry. All other text is normal except that in the tabs. Additionally, if I open "Customize" from the menu, the tab text returns to normal until I close it, then tabs get blurry again. Restart of PC did not solve the issue. OS: Windows 7 Home Premium, Firefox: 37.0.2 What have I done?

When I click on the Menu option "Set Up Sync" the menu item disappear, as expected, but absolutely nothing else happens. Also if in the Sync tab of the Options window, I click on Sign In or Create Account, the window disappears and nothing else happens.

This is an attempt to upgrade Sync. Unlinked computer from Sync, restarted Firefox and I'm now in this situation.

When I right click on a demo item (music clip in this case) that is for downloading I get no options to be able to download it. It used to give me one until had to refresh Firefox (due to me inadvertently allowing another site to change the settings and configuration I was using.) When I use Internet Explorer the downloading works fine (like Firefox used to.) Also when viewing a YouTube video there used to be a Download button that I used to download. Now it's no longer there.

This is the second time this has happened. Tonight, I put the photo in the Recycle Bin and took a screen shot, because I wanted to find out why this was happening. The photo has not been permanently deleted yet. I was going to post a screen shot, but do not have all night for the image to load on this site. I've even reduced the size of the image to about the same size as the image box on this site.

I bought a used laptop from a pretty reputable computer repair shop (has very high ratings online) and this computer is a Windows 7/8 os.

I noticed right away that I had a redirect problem. It has taken me a while to try to resolve this issue (other than my anti-malware software) and recently I found out how to go into my settings and set up the "warn before redirecting". This works in a few cases but I am still getting redirected in MANY occasions, though not every time on same pages/sites.

I have checked all of my add-ons and am not sure which one(s) might be bad. I have Adobe add-ons but I always downloadthose and update those directly from the Adobe home.

Anybody have any OTHER suggestions to stop these annoying redirects?

I recently had someone malicious change my router's DNS server IP address to a bad one. When it was changed, I could not access google or facebook. I have fixed it and can browse both sites, but the search toolbar in the top right won't take me to google. I get an "Unable to connect" error. Doing other search engines (eg wikipedia) is fine.

Firefox 37 right out of the box (+router nonsense) on Ubuntu 14.

Where can I find better, more correct instructions for fixing printing problems by editing prefs.js ?

Instructions in "Fix printing problems|Firefox Help, line 6. Remove all lines in prefs.js that start with print_ and save the file." do not correspond to what is actually in my prefs.js file.

That is, there no lines that *start* with either "print" or "print_". However, the five-character string "print" appears *very* many times buried deep within a line of characters, but never at the beginning of a line, and rarely followed by an underscore. So I have no idea what I am actually expected to do to correct my problem.

It appears to me that this is simply a poorly worded instruction that might make more sense to someone who is familiar with coding and software development, which I am not. I don't have the time, experience, or knowledge required to figure it out. I need more literal/explicit/specific instructions.

The printing problem I am having is that I must print over WiFi from a printer in another room cabled to another computer, and that Firefox seems to switch or possibly reverse font scales for margin information and webpage text. That is, the document title, date, time, etc. prints very large and the actual page-content text prints almost too small to read.

Each time click "Firefox - Preferences" I get only a partial display of options that normally shows up on my MacBook Pro (Mavericks). If I click on a different subtopic, close Preferences and reopen Preferences, I get a fuller display on THAT topic, but never have I been able to see "Saved Passwords" or "Change Master Password" on MacBook Air.

Firefox constantly crashes. Have tried Resetting to initial state, disabling extensions (ad blocker) in running in normal mode and safe mode. Still crashes. Sticking with Firefox because Chrome is slower than a dead dog and I'm just not into IE.

Crash report ID is bp-e75bea61-b792-4aa5-aea8-9f9422150429

Any help will be appreciated.

I will be on a web page, and after using the search box, the searched items will come up in a grid -- photos with descriptions. Then I will get a message that there is an unresponsive script, and then the top row of photos changes from products to miniature ads for questionable products. This happens across many web sites, not just one. For example, I have been searching for a file cabinet, and this happens on Staples.com, OfficeDepot.com, Wayfair.com, Overstock.com, etc. Screen shot attached.

Almost 12 hours ago, after opening the browser ( home page is https://www.google.ro/ ) I navigated to wikipedia to search for a airplane and suddenly it opened by itself a new window with a " Mozilla annually survey ". I took that survey, which was consisting of 4 questions. After that survey, randomly firefox started opening Adds. I'll post here the link which i think might be " doing" this, if this is some kind a virus.... I'm just saying, because i can't find any explanation.

I have uploaded a Print Screenof my firefox and the Windows 7 Task Manager. You can see that firefox is using a big amunt of RAM and the Flash Player plugin too, half a gigabyte. I don't think it's normal, because it has never used so much memory not even when i opened 10 videos simultaneously on youtube that uses this plugin.

I hope that the picture has been uploaded, because in the last 10 minutes that I've spent writing this the square picture where the uploaded file should be has been loading all the time. Even now it is saying ""Uploading "Firefox Problem 3.png"... """ . if you need more from me to tell you, i will.
