In Options under General tab there is a box for setting Home Page, i click Restore to Default button to set the Mozilla Firefox Start Page as the Home Page and close the window. After that when i open new window i don't see the Home Page that i had set it is the previously set Home Page. And also when i select Google as the Default Search Engine in Select tab and delete the Oursurfing from the list and close the window and restart the window, all the changed settings remain same.

Browser "locks up" at random times while browsing. I was unable to use control+Alt+Del to close the browser and had to manually shut off and restart the computer. Tried the following: Firefox refresh, clearing the cache, clearing cookies, re-installing Firefox and scanning for possible viruses. All of the above without finding a fix to the problem.

I recently had two instances of instability, one mainly in regard to horrid playback of html5 video on YouTube, and upon trying to fix with restarting FF, etc, had an interesting find.

In both instances, when I finally resorted to a reboot, I found that my machine was running the mandatory Windows updates. After the updates were applied and the system back up, Firefox improved, although in the poor video playback instance another reboot was required.

Just now, the issue was a crashed FF that would greet my with yet another "Sorry! Firefox Crashed." screen. Quitting and restarting did nothing, killing any instance of FF in Task Manager didn't help. Log out/in didn't help. Renaming my profile didn't help. None of the standard tricks (that I know of) helped. Therefore, upon the restart, again Windows told me to wait so it could install updates.

Hmm . . . This seems pretty suspicious to me.

To note: My poor video playback didn't have to do with bandwidth; the video downloaded and buffered fine, it just stuttered and dropped frames like crazy.

Perhaps this is all just coincidental, but I've raised the issue in case it happens to jive with others' complaints.

When I open firefox it restores my previous tabs, which I want. It also opens, every single time, windows with tabs that I've visited but closed in previous sessions. I don't want these windows restored, only the windows and tabs that were open during my last session. In particular, they are pinterest tabs that I have visited, but don't want to see every time I open my browser. Does anyone have any advice? I don't really want to disable "restore previous session" because I also have a lot of tabs that I don't want to lose.

Hi, maybe this problem's been here since forever but I've noticed it now that I'm using Windows 10.

I have Firefox 40 and the close, maximize and minimize buttons do not follow the system settings. I have changed the size of the titlebar to 8 (from default of 9 I believe): http://i.imgur.com/ywNuobB.png

And as you can see Firefox ignores this and uses the default value thus making those buttons bigger than they should, pic for comparaison: http://i.imgur.com/sLccmk6.png Also the tab sizes and text seems too big in comparison with Edge.

AFAIK I don't have any extension that may produce this problem so I do believe this is a bug. Any plans on fixing it? Any suggestions on how I can fix it myself with an addon or some config settings?

If you read long texts with a web browser, it is easier for the eye to have something that guides them.

One simple solution is to read at the bottom of the screen and scroll down one line after the other.

Up to now I could not find a way to scroll exactly one line with firefox. Cursor-Down moves more than one line in my setup.

A plugin which provides a ruler or something like this would work, too.

I am developing a new intranet site for our workplace and whenever I use HPRM Doc Server (Documents located in HPRM and the link links direct to this through the CMS). IE 8 has no problem with loading the link but firefox just wont recongise what the file type is (see image attached). The document number D15/0000001 at the end is what we change to select the right document.

This is the example of the link; https://trim.det.wa.edu.au/docserver/getfile.aspx?RecID=%20D15/0000001

This is more of a report on a bug (if it counts as one)

You see, I know there's 2 ways to update firefox: 1. You click on Help>About Firefox, and seeing if it says "update to (insert version number here)" 2. Download either the firefox install stub for the newest version from mozilla.org or get the full installer and use that to update

Only problem with method one, is that when I update through that, and I open Revo Uninstaller Pro (and I also rebuilt revo's cache file to make sure it isn't a "revo uninstaller pro" program problem), it doesn't properly reflect the version number of the updated version, for example

Version 38.5> check for update> update to current 40.0.2 version, open revo pro, still says 38.5 version is current version and not 40.0.2; I didn't check windows 10's programs and features window to see if the same problem reflects itself there, but I'm betting it does

if I use method 2, it works then, but I'd like it if (and this is just unless this is a firefox problem) this "bug?" was fixed; I call it a "bug?" because im clueless on what front its belonging to
