Why can't the FireFox engineering team produce fixes for the problems for users who have Outlook.com as their email service?

If you work on an Apple Mac and use web access for Outlook.com as your email service, you cannot delete, move or rename an email folder in the new Outlook.com using the Firefox browser (FFv19). You should be able to right-click on an email folder to delete, rename and move a folder. However, in Firefox the pop-up box does not come up to be able to do these functions. In Internet Explorer you can right-click on a folder to delete, etc., but right-clicking on email Outlook folders using the Firefox (FFv19) browser does not work. Firefox and Microsoft's new Outlook.com are not playing nicely.

Does the software engineering team at Firefox give a damn? Apparently, this has been a problem for months and Firefox still has not come up with a fix.

Those of us who user Firefox and work on Apple MACs need fixes for the new Outlook.com. AND please DON'T ask me to change my email service provider because I have been using MSN (now Outlook.com) for 14 years. I'm NOT going to change my email service.

To the Firefox engineering team: Please produce/create a fix for the problem I've outlined for Outlook.com. I need to be able to delete, move and rename my email folders in Outlook using the Firefox browser.

Firefox cache settings that were working are no longer working, in Windows XP (x86) and Windows 7 (64).

By this I meant that I had set the cache to a ram-drive, but that is no longer being used, the cache is being written to disk instead in what is apparently the new default location, and my customized cache settings are ignored.

I've tried resetting Firefox to default and then re-applying them, but the problem still exists.

This is for FF 19+, but not sure when the problem first occurred - perhaps an earlier version too.

Is it no longer possible to re-direct the cache directory? How do you do it?

I updated Mozilla yesterday and as it happened, this new PDF viewer it magically came with doesn't cooperate with the sites I need to use for my workplace. I want the old way of viewing PDF's back, or just to be able to disable the built-in PDF viewer so that I can use the Adobe PDF viewer and see my files once again. I found a way to disable all PDF viewers, through about:config, but now I have to download the PDF's to my desktop to even view them and this doesn't exactly flow with my work. Please help!

Hello, I have this problem were whenever I try to type in something into the search or addresys bars, nothing happens. It's like the enter key isn't working. There is not usual picture next to the search bar (the one that shows you what search engine you're using. If it's google it shows a "g" next to the bar). Instead there is just a picture of a blank page as a placeholder. When I try to go in and add a new search engine by managing the search engine list, there is no option to add a new search engine. I have already tried going into the firefox folder on my computer and deleted the formhistory.sqlite file that is the supposed problem. No avail. I have even gone so far to delete and reinstall firefox to my computer. Well, that didn't work either. So I waited until the next update to see if my problem would be fixed THEN. I am currently on firefox 19.0, which is, as of writing, the most current version. I have tried restarting firefox with all addons removed. And for good measure, I deleted anything that ended with ".sqlite" in my firefox folder. I have tried to get the the about:config menu but do not know how considering how my address bar refuses to search. The greatest thing is that my address bar can still remember all the sites I've typed into it before, but for some unknown reason, cannot take me to any of them! I really don't know what to do next. I can only suppose that I could try completely deleting everything firefox has stored on my computer, as I don't know if just uninstalling the program actually did that. Other then my search bar problem, firefox has been acting fairly normally besides a few minor hiccups here and there. I am trying to remember if I downloaded anything before my search bar problems started or not, but it is always a possibility. I did download the firefox beta for windows 8 metro mode but I can't remember if that was before or after firefox started acting up. It's possible considering that softonic thought they were being really nice by including fbdownloader for free with my firefox metro browser. I am now no longer using softonic ever again. But that's all the evidence I can think up right off the tip of my head. Sorry if this was kinda long, and if any of my description isn't clear or make sense please ask and I can try to verify. Also, if I haven't said this already, my search bar is only not working in firefox. Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari are all working fine. Just my luck, I guess. If anyone could help me out, I'd be much obliged. Not being able to use the address bar has been really inefficient. Thank you.

I downloaded some program from cnet, which used to be a reputable source, but now seems to be riddled with malware. The item I downloaded was not what I thought it was and I promptly removed it from my computer. I also managed to remove snap.do toolbar from all my browsers and my computer with little effort. HOWEVER, I cannot seem to get rid of snap.do. It seems as though it has hijacked the startpage of all my browsers, IE, Chrome,Safari, and Firefox all show snap.do whenever I open them. Of course I can click past this and go to a different page with no trouble. I can reset the homepage in tools-internet options and every time I hit the little house button, I can go back to that homepage. BUT if I turn my browser OFF, when I turn it back on, snap.do is the homepage once more. I have run anti-malware from Kaspersky and Webroot, neither finding anything. I have reset Firefox. I have done a flushDNS through config. I have checked all the settings for the LAN, Internet protocol, and HOSTS folder. I have even reset the router to factory settings. I am at a complete loss. All I want is for my homepage to come up when I open my browser, any browser. Since Firefox is my preferred browser, I am asking you. Please help Running: Windows XP SP3 with latest available Firefox

I have literally tried everything, from the general option menu to directly using about:config to fix this problem. It happens all the damn time, and after dicking with it, I can usually fix it, but this time, I cannot get firefox to restore tabs from my previous session. I have it set to restore my previous session in the general options menu, it warns me when I close multiple tabs, private browsing is disabled. I don't know what else to do. I've scoured this site and tried every solution I could find, but none of them are working. Firefox had frozen, so I had to ctrl/alt/del to close it, and when I restarted it, my session was gone forever. I've done this before and it's never dicked with the settings. I realize that there's a 'restore previous session' option in the history, but I want it to load automatically. It's getting really bothersome with the amount of times firefox has done this.

My firefox has been fine for years up until a couple of days ago..

Sometimes when typing into google the autocomplete changes what im typing and sends me to the wrong site.

Any site i visit randomly redirects to worldsocialsurvey.com, and then takes me to loads of shopping pages when i cancel it.

I have ran virus scans with, Trend,Malwarebytes, Superantispyware and used combofix yet all of these say i am clean and nothing is wrong.

I have looked in about:config, and looked for anything that may redirect me like Babylon has a habit of doing, but it all appears to be fine.

Any ideas?

I have the latest version of firefox

I uninstalled the stupid entrusted add-on and I reset my home page to what I wanted, but I can't get rid of the new tab opening option to that site instead of the default. Can someone please help me fix it.

Please can anyone help me !! I am using Windows 7 64 bit and my Firefox update is regularly popping up a box that reads "Something is preventing Firefox from updating securely. Please make sure that you have the latest version from Firefox from http://www.firefox.com". I am a novice at this and don't know how to do this without it uninstalling all my bookmarks and other settings. I know I need an English version preferably British, but usually when I attempt anything like this it goes pear shaped, so if there is anyone out there who could walk me through it step by step I would most appreciate it. Thanks.

I am using Win8 After I installed Nightly it set itself as the default browser and won't let me set any other browser as the default, Chrome, FF, Pale Moon, even though FF says it is the default browser Nightly opens the link. I uninstalled Nightly and now no browser will open automatically when a link is clicked. I have tried to set the default browser through the browser, the default program, and through allowing access to the default programs but no success. When I reinstall Nightly it picks up as the default browser again.

I updated Firefox a few days ago from 18.0.2 to 19.0 and now see that the tabs slide around when I drag to rearrange them or try to ppostion a tab over a bookmarks toolbar folder for bookmarking. The tab being dragged also gets transparent although I don't recall that happening previously unless it was moved over the browser window. Although I see reference to a similar animation problem for 17.0 I had no issues until the recent update.

I have Tab Mix Plus installed but see no settings that have to do with tab animation. Browser.Tab.Animate in about:config is already to set to "false".

This is annoying, useless and when I am trying to drag a tab across the tabs bar onto the bookmarks toolbar the tab will hang up in a "phantom" position at the point where it crosses the tab bar. How do I undo this or turn it off, short of adding yet another extension to deal with it (Tab Utilities)?

Dear developers, for some time Firefox has a plugincheck "feature". Is there any way to turn it off? This blocks contents for eg. flash videos, so I have to enable the "old" plugin for each website... I do not care if my plugins are up to date or not. I'll update them if I want to. This is a very annoying thing in the firefox :( I use this browser for many years, but as you develop this, it just getting worse and worse. Slow, eats a lots of memory, some "plugin container" slows my whole system sometime and now this plugincheck. I'm seriously thinking about changig browser if there's no way to turn it off :( Please answer ASAP (no answer, like "we are planing..." is acceptable) Thank You for answering.
