Not really a question, more of a plea...

Firefox 18.0 crawls on my machine. Not the browsing as such; that's only a little slower than 17.0.1 (still noticeable). I'm talking about opening and traversing menus and entering text in text fields on sites. I had to go back to 17.0.1 as it was just too annoying. This is on Linux Mint Debian Edition (Debian Testing), using the nl localized Firefox downloaded from the Mozilla site. Switching off extensions and/or using a new profile didn't help. If this doesn't get any better in following versions, I'll have to look for another browser when 17.0.1 becomes too old. Please don't make me do that. I've just tried Chrome and quite frankly, it's a bit of a joke...

I'm currently encountering issues with ellipse rendering (SVG) in Firefox 17.0.1 under Windows.

As a specific example, I am using the sample HTML representing the two ellipses here:

http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/shapes.html#EllipseElement

I have noticed that the right-hand ellipse appears collapsed, as a single dot in this environment. However, when rendering in Chrome under Windows, or in Firefox 15.0.1 under Ubuntu, the right-hand ellipse appears as expected, as a blue outline.

Thank you.

Do I have to changer browsers to watch Facebook videos if I want to use the Flash-Block extension with recent updates of Firefox and Flash-Player?

I had to disable Flash-block to view videos in Facebook following recent updates of Firefox to 17.0.1 and Flash Player 11.5 on Mac Snow-Leopard OS X.6.8.

With the Flash Block extension enabled, I can view videos on all other sites, like news and u-tube and other blogs, and on Facebook with other browsers such as Safari.

I prefer Firefox, but I prefer it best with Flash Block enabled, because I have slow internet and most sites load more slowly without Flash Block. And Flash Block is a great add-on that eliminates a lot of annoying characteristics of Flash Player.

Is there anyway to use my updated Firefox for watching Facebook videos (and everything else I do) and to have Flash Block enabled? Are there Flash Block or Firefox updates to make this workable?

I really don't want to switch to another browser. I love Firefox.

Prior to the recent Flash Player updates from V 10 to V 11, and Firefox update to 17.0.1, I could watch videos on Facebook with no problem with Flash Block enabled.

Brand new FF 17.0.1 install. Apparently over the best FF: 3.5.

Steps to reproduce:

1. going to web page with recaptcha on it. 2. Does not appear. 3. Inspect it with "firebug" and between the script tags it says "Reload the page to see the source of https://www.google.com/....." 4. Refreshing the page does nothing. 5. Take the google URL and put it into new tab 6. the new tab says the (domain/cert?) isn't allowed, but allows me to add an exception for it. 7. I click "Add Exception" and it spits back the Javascript. 8. Go back to the original tab 9. F5 10. recaptcha now works.

This page works in FF3.5, and all versions of IE and Chrome attempted. Has the same non-working behaviour in FF14. Both FF's are on Win7.

In Firefox - which I prefer, the conduit (I think) is MIX.DJ and I do not want it. Chrome does not seem to be affected. Add/Remove programs does not work - it does not show there - I am using 7, nor does it show as an addon. The web is full of people with the same issue - although I am not sure if they are confined to Firefox

Running auto updated Firefox 17.0.1 on Windows 7. I used to be able to stream Netflix just fine until late in the evening, 11/30/2012. I tried to stream a movie and Netflix showed a window saying it couldn't due to a problem using Silverlight, code 2103. Netflix suggested I remove and reload Silverlight. I did, twice. I also updated Firefox yesterday, just in case. Still, no joy. I can stream Netflix just fine with Internet Explorer. What gives?

I always used to be able to search and retrieve password -- but the UI has changed recently and whatever I search for nothing is returned; but for many sites it still auto fills in my name/password so they are there. I've tried searching for anyone else having this problem but can't find anything -- can't believe I'm alone though...

Do I just down grade -- or is there anything else I can do to get functionality back?

this started to happen about two months ago, have done two or three Firefox updated in that time period. About 20-30 minutes into web browsing (most days, not all), the mouse stops working, and two seconds later, Firefox is minimized. For the next 20 seconds, the computer doesn't respond to keyboard or mouse input, even ctrl-alt-del doesn't effect computer. After 20 seconds, Firefox comes back up as if nothing happened,. If I had hit ctrl-alt-del, then that screen appears. I've done a full scan with Norton and it didn't find anything. I have a Toshiba Portege R705, running Windows 7. I have IE installed, but can't remember the last time I used it. I may tried web surfing with IE, and see if it also goes into a "forced minimize". I didn't see anything on your web page about this type of failure. Have you ever heard of this before? Do you have any suggestions? rgstevens123@comcast.net

It's not the font on the text that I type with, but the Address bar, Bookmarks(Include the images), so everything above the tabs(Include the tab text/images), and the right click menu. If I go into Firefox safe mode it all works fine, I have tried to disable all addons but the problem is still there.

Edit: Tried to Reset firefox to default, didn't work. Uninstalled firefox and removed everything, didn't work. Downloaded firefox portable from portable apps, works, but I don't want to have it portable.

I don't like how firefox treats sessions in the new versions. I mean in 3.6 I could easily restore a session, I could pick what pages/windows I don't like to be restored. And most importantly, I could keep more sessions. Example, lets say I have 10 tabs and I terminate firefox, next if I don't restore the tabs, I can keep that restoresession tab, and by following this I can have unlimited restore sessions so I can backup everything I need. So my question is: how can I change back to the old way firefox treated sessions. plus, I liked the 3.6 design better, though I managed to get a look that is very similar to 3.6, I just might go back to 3.6 just because of the restoresession thing.

QuickTime bug? My website uses simple HMTL with HREF="./whatever.wav". Firefox 17.0.1 just updated, but problem also with previous version. QuickTime reinstalled. WIndows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, but same problem on a MacBook. The QuickTime plugin used to play .wav files OK. Now though, at best you get just a few seconds of music, but it does not crash. New router, but the wav files play OK with Windows Media Player. OK, I could use Windows Media Player, but I want users of my website to have no problems with QuickTime.

I have activated 'click to play' for plugins at the moment (by about:config). Whenever i click on a flash area in a website, my browser hangs up.

My browser is Firefox 17.0.1 (don't know, if the problem existed even with version 17.0). Firefox 16.0.2 is working properly with the same Flash plugin (current release by 26th, December, 2012).

My browser version is the official version, which is downloadable from the Firefox website at any time (and not the repository version from Ubuntu 12.04) and the flash plugin is saved in the 'plugins' subdirectory, as usual. (Firefox also hangs up with deactivated add-ons in safe mode, as plugins aren't deactivated in this mode)
