Had Firefox 38 or alike and no auto update, updated manually to Firefox.44 and now .45 and on Youtube the sites video player (unzoomed) is much smaller than before and smaller compared to other browsers (look like Chrome when you have just downloaded something that shows a bar in the lower part of the screen which makes the player smaller so you can see everything, except the problem is all the time).

It's like the player have shrunk all together because there is a lot of extra space on the sides that should be filled.

Have added pictures that show the problem in Firefox and how it used to look like and how it is in Chrome.

Hope there is some solution to this, thank you for your time.

Hello, I have had Firefox 44 installed and it has been working fine. This morning I downloaded the update to Firefox 45 and since then it has been crashing repeatedly. So far it's crashed while using gmail twice and Amazon once. I suspect it's to do with the Trusteer Rapport software I have installed for online banking, it's happened before. I immediately downloaded and installed the latest version but it hasn't had any effect. Any thoughts? Thanks, Mark

If you take a really old version of Firefox, say version 30, and ask it to update it often fails to update to the latest version. It might update to, say, version 37 then you have to update version 37 to the current version. So the whole process takes twice as long as it should. Very tedious but a long-standing problem. Can it not be fixed?

This morning, Firefox stopped working properly.

1-When I open tabs, and try to search terms in them, nothing works. It just freezes

2-The context menu now displays all of the hidden menu options as opposed to a selected few options such as open new tabs, copy and paste, search terms the highlighted terms. This is unusable as I have a context sensitive menu that spans the entire screen.

3-Clicking on open new tab in the context menu does nothing.

4-Frankly, Firefox today is totally unusable and I can,t get any of my work done. Am I gonna have to switch to something else? I don't want to but if nothing is fixed, what's the point of using something so unusable?

5-On auto-updates, so not sure when I was updated to 45.0. Nothing changed on my computer since last night.

Open sans font incorrectly displayed in FF 45 under Win7

I have installed Win7 on my computer and my Graphic Card driver (Nvidea GeForce Game Ready, Driver Version: 362.00 WHQL, Release Date: 1.3.2016).

When I open a page in firefox, then I noticed that the fonts in general look pixelated and have issues with displaying bold properties.

For example, in the first image, you see on the left how the google "open sans" font is displayed in chrome, and on the right how it is displayed in Firefox. Also the Image second shows the difference in Firefox and Chrome for open sans. I also noticed that the IE 8 has the same issue as Firefox.

Also, I have Firefox on my Laptop using Ubuntu version 39.0 and the font works well there.

I know that everything was working well on my computer before I reinstalled Win 7. I reinstalled Win 7 another time to see if anything went wrong during installation, but the problem remains. I also tried an older Nvidea driver (Verson 355.82) but the problem still remains.

I have posted this question also here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/35869208/open-sans-pixelated-in-firefox-under-win7?noredirect=1#comment59403452_35869208

Is there a reason why open sans is not displayed correctly in Firefox?

I have clear type enabled (https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1002008) and I switched hardware acceleration on/off (https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/943289) and I tried to enable WIndows Firewall ( I can't find the link anymore but someone was able to fix font issues with his FIrewall somehow).

Hello,

Strangely when I updated to Firefox 44 (or some time near it) I had to enter all my passwords (like proxy) every time, while in the past I had just to click "OK". I found out that the password manager was empty with no Logins and Passwords registered.

1) I checked that I'm not browsing in private mode and my security setting is "remember history".

2) I reinstalled Firefox

3) I disabled all add-ons

4) I disabled Sync

5) I tried safe mode and the problem persists

6) I tried to delete the signons.sqlite and key3.db files in the profiles folder

None seems to be working. Any ideias?

Before the issue, Firefox did open this file without prompting me to "open with" or save the file, it automatically use to play the file, in my case, a video from BVTLAB.com, a school resource video. Another surface pro 4 with windows 10 opens this file (video) automatically. ?What can I do to get firefox to play this content automatically, like it use to?

After upgrading to Firefox 45.0 a document from the web (newspaper article in this case) is no longer copied intact into a new message in Thuiderbird. Text formatting of headings & subheadings are lost, links are lost and no images are copied. This has not occurred in any prior version of Firefox.

I copied the same article from the web into a word document and all formatting as well as images were copied intact -- using the Word paste option of "Keep Source Formatting".

I accessed the document in Internet Explorer and copied it into Thunderbird with all formatting and images intact.

I am running Windows 7 64 bit. Is this a bug in 45.0 or how can I resolve this issue?

For about the last month or so, sometimes when I check for Firefox updates through Help > About Firefox, Avast will tell me that a threat was blocked. Specifically, what comes up in the warning is:

Object: http://ww38.au4.mozilla.org/?force-1 | {gzip}

Infection: HTML:Iframe-inf

Process: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe


I've already run a scan with Avast and Malwarebytes, but both came back with nothing. I'm currently running the 64-bit version of Firefox, and I don't know if this issue exists with the 32-bit version, as I don't use it all that often.

Also, I've had to manually update the browser for the last year or so because Firefox never seems to find any updates. I don't know if this is related to my problem.
