If I go to Tools-Extensions some of my add-ons have updates are available. After I download it says it will be installed after restarting FireFox but it does not. I'm not sure update is being down loaded, but it looks like it is. The Progress bar moves forward but it does not show on down load page. I'm using Mac OS 10.6.8 with FireFox 19.0.2

Switching from external display to MBP retina display, poor quality, must restart FF19.0.2

Here's the sequence of events:

1) Start FF on my MBP (OS 10.8.2), and retina display works properly.

2) Connect my MBP to a 24" external display, which has max resolution of 1920x1200 (set as primary). FF displays nicely on external display.

3) Disconnect external display and FF is now pixelated on MBP retina. Refreshing System Dispay preferences doesn't seem to help, or I haven't found the magic technique.

4) Restart FF and all is well.

So the issue appears to be FF not recognizing the need to revert to Retina resolution.

I want to remove the color on my tabs. There is no color add-on in my add-on list. However, in Cheevos for Firefox, there is a Tab Candy entry that is highlighted but no way of disabling it. How do you suggest I get rid of the Tab candy or the color tabs?

Sorry folks, I have asked the writer but just want to keep options open.

"Net usage item 1.2.337.1" It used to work. Now it constantly just gives a red circle with a white cross in it.

But, if I RMB in it, and "visit ISP usage page" it works.

So if it opens the link and can show me on a page, SOMETHING has changed, but where? Anyone else have this error?

P.S. My ISP is bigpond.

When in Yahoo mail, the OPEN WEB LOCATION box opens for each letter I try to type in in the "To" line and/or the "Subject" line of any new e-mail to someone. I type a letter, the Box opens, and I cannot type anything in the e-mail window anywhere until I close the box. I close the box, type another letter, and the OWL Box open gain. It takes forever to type anything. This started when I updated Firefox to the new 21 version. I Uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. No help. I uninstalled 21 and re-installed 19 (I was using 19 with no problems until today). No help. The problem will not go away. I note that others have complained of this problem. Is there a fix yet? I have been forced back to IE in the meantime.

How do I download an XPI without Firefox trying to install it?

Mail Redirect, a TB addon, recently switched to Sourceforge because MozDev was shutting down or something. However, attempting to download the latest XPI from Sourceforge (http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/mailredirect/mailredirect-0.7.7-sm%2Btb.xpi?r=http%3A%2F%2Fsourceforge.net%2Fprojects%2Fmailredirect%2F%3Fsource%3Ddirectory&ts=1370301869&use_mirror=iweb) fails, because Firefox assumes the download is supposed to be an install of a Firefox addon, and Mail Redirect's metadata is set to be incompatible with Firefox.

There is no way to override this and force an actual download; clicking "Direct Link" on the page does the same thing, and dragging either of the links to the Downloads window (Ctrl-J) downloads an HTML document with a .XPI extension, which is obviously useless. What's more, Thunderbird has no convenient way of opening arbitrary webpages.

I finally caved and used IE to download it. It took about 30 seconds.

This button just went missing all of a sudden. I now have only one tab group, and I can't reach any of the other 3 groups I had before this happened.

I tried closing and restarting Firefox, which didn't help. I tried restoring the Profile from last week. This worked at first, but then I clicked the "list all tabs" button, went to another tab group, and BINGO - lost the "list all tabs" button again!

This is extremely annoying. I am now using a restored Profile, but I cannot click the "list all tabs" button any more without losing all the tabs but the ones in the tab group I go to. So I effectively don't have tab groups any more!

I've have been using FF for several years. Three or 4 times during the upgrading process FF loses the open tabs and only loads with a single tab (that's fine I can reopen them). So, I've waited for the next "stable" version and then tried again until successful.

I'm currently running 19.0.2. The problem is that upgrading creates two Title Bars (right name? At the top of the brower...that shows the title of the current page) and just generally looks like if effed-up and icons are messed up, etc.

I've searched: can someone point me to the help page that addresses this issue.

Thanks! WinXP SP3, 2GB Ram

I have received multiple update notices that say "a security and stability update for Firefox is available", and "it is strongly recommended that you apply this update as soon as possible". I have clicked the update box and a progress bar is displayed, but it seems endless, and never has completed. Am I not waiting long enough? Does it take 2, 4, 8, 12 or 24 hours, or longer?
