Yesterday my firefox failed to properly properly display text and the menu bar on a message board. It still properly loads all other message boards and google, opera and IE browsers also properly load this message board.

I have updated to the latest version of firefox, uninstalled and installed a fresh version of firefox and also updated windows 8.1 and rebooted the computer. I've also cleared cache, cookies and restarted firefox. Also, have checked and unchecked the "use hardware acceleration" box with no result. Also, have updated the graphics driver and still no positive result.

Please advise any suggestions for proper display of text on message board.

I have this big space between my Yahoo search bar and my email list. It looks like an ad should be there. I can't see the Firefox bar that let's you block or unblock things. Twice it has popped up and I could click on the Close Ad button, but normally I can't see that to click on it. This just started this weekend. It looks like there was a Firefox update of some kind then. How do I get this gone??

Why is XUL being deprecated if its Firefox's main asset, power-source and difference from other browsers?

Taking https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2016/11/23/add-ons-in-2017/ as a representative sample of Firefox's community of users we can see 100% of negative reaction to the decision of deprecating XUL. So: is Mozilla reverting that decision? If not, why the hell not?

Also, none of those comments was answered by Mozilla, which is also a bit disrespectful, I think. Am I wrong here? Feedback seems to work one way only and not for the users' sake... :(

Can access and browse on Amazon.com, but can't add item to my wish list, or delete item either, or use cart. Those functions work fine in IE, and worked in Chrome which I used before switching to Firefox. Should I switch back to Chrome, or is there a compatibility issue with Firefox and Amazon? My Kaspersky puts sites like Amazon into a "proctected" browser window to protect my financial data, is there an issue with Kaspersky? Thanks

I want to remove this in my add-ons: "Shockwave Flash is known to be vulnerable and should be updated. Update Now." "Shockwave Flash 15.0.r0" When I click update, FIrefox has blocked it: "Flash Player Plugin 14.0 to 15.0.0.242 (click-to-play) has been blocked for your protection." But I want to remove it completely - I have a 2. Shockwave Flash add-on that is an updated version.

I removed Firefox from my PC, restarted, reinstalled Firefox, but STILL, there is the SAME VULNERABLE SHOCKWAVE FLASH in the add-ons - how can this be??

Why is my old add-ons and preferences here after I have removed and reinstalled Firefox?? Why does FIrefox keep my info? How do I remove this old add-on? Or do I have to start using another browser in stead of Firefox?

I must open this website to access my mails. https://mail.enterprise.china.alibaba.com/

It is Chinese, before I had no problem with it, but now it opens, but I can't login. I can type my mail and password, but when I press "login" nothing happens. It is is indicated on the top bar that "connection is not secure", so maybe it has something to do with it. I have already tried to clean Cache and cookies, and tried to open using other browsers but also didn't workout.

When I try to print from yahoo mail, the X and printer icon print before the actual image/page/document. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and done the "refresh Firefox" and let it clear everything out. I followed the troubleshooting tips as far as the print prefs, starting Firefox in safe mode and changing the default font. None of this has fixed the issue. A weird note, after trying any of the fixes, the first print works, but all subsequent prints page 1 and page 2 are the X and Printer Icon, starting with page 3 being the actual message/picture/whatever that I am wanting to print.
