Has the problem with Firefox 17 and using Norton Internet Security Identity Vault and auto logins been resolved. In addition, how does one get up auto update for Firefox. If I revert to an earlier version, Firefox will automatically update to Version 17 and the problem will start again.

Why does firefox 16.0.1 not allow me to click on buttons in the top 40mm below the banners, though i can get to them by tabbing to a buttons then press "Enter"?

It doesn't matter what web-page I'm on, the top 40mm or so of the screen is a dead area for clicking on buttons or links. e.g. in Google I can click on a link lower down the page and get transferred to the new article - but if I were to move the item up nearer the top of the page the link would no longer operate.

I can move to a link by repeated operation of the "Tab" key until the link or button is indicated, and then press "Enter" to use the link, but this is potentially very time-consuming if there are a lot of links on the page.

I'm using a Toshiba Satellite L750 loaded with Windows 7, and Firefox 16.0.

I updated to 17.0 today, and suddenly ClearType (what a joke!) is forced on, and I see no way to get rid of it. Seriously, ClearType is ugly and it makes it much harder to read webpages. This is the entire reason I refuse to install IE 9.0. Help?

OS: Windows 7 Pro 64-bit Browser: Firefox 17.0 32-bit Auto-updated 11/21/2012

ClearType was off in 16.0 and earlier. If it can't be turned I will have to revert.

The pop up appears with every new tab. It has an extremely small delete "X" icon if you can find it...The pop up interferes visually with every tab and must be carefully manually deleted each time. It is always located in the lower left bottom of the screen. It is a window about 3 inches square. It began last week with an automatic download. I want it removed or I will be swiftly returning to Explorer or perhaps Google Chrome...Thanking you in advance

When i access a website with javascript ( i used http://www.gdv.de/ as a test site ) Firefox freezes and needs to be shut down by task manager. This problem started with Firefox upgrading to 16.0 or 16.1. I tried to reinstall it several times without success. Disabling java in preferences solves the problem. I tried uninstalling java completely, problem persists. When Firefox starts it opens one or two tasks called plugin container for firefox.

this is my web page: http://www.andrew-leonard.co.uk/Mallorca/mallorca%20ferns.htm

It usess css to define layers and javascript to show and hide the layers. It uses a dhtml menu system by Milonic to execute the javascript

This is part of the code for the layers:

<style type="text/css">
#Layer01 {position: absolute; left: 300px; top: 50px; z-index:1;}
...........
#Layer33 {position: absolute; left: 300px; top: 50px; z-index:33;}
</style>

This is part of the javascript to show/hide the layers:

<script>
function showlayer(layer){
var myLayer = document.getElementById(layer).style.display;
if(myLayer=="none"){
document.getElementById(layer).style.display="block";
} else {
document.getElementById(layer).style.display="none";
}
}
</script>


It works OK in IE but not firefox

Initially my yahoo.com homepage loads with no issues. Now, when I select a link from yahoo.com and then hit the back arrow it takes me back to yahoo. com, but to blank page. Once I get this blank page I can bring up yahoo.com main page by refreshing the page. No problem with any other site. I just updated to FF 17.0, but it was happening with the previous version as well. Thanks in advance and God Bless!

All those buttons worked fine until I updated Firefox from v.16 to v.17. Now, I can't get any of the above mentioned buttons on the toolbar to work anymore. Links inside an HTML page still work, but not the buttons noted above.

This v.17 BUG appeared on my WXP and W7 platform PC's, only after I upgraded Firefox to v.17. No other changes were made that could have caused this BUG on either PC.

If I can't fix this, then how can I rollback to v.16?

I use Windows 7. I have used Firefox for a couple of years. A few days ago I tried using the icon on desktop and using the icon in the list of programs with no results. The cursor has the "spinning ball" next to it for a few seconds, but nothing ever appears. I tried rebooting and downloading the Version 17 again and it opened one time and went back to the above "spinning etc".
