Downloaded Nightly and ran Nightly 28 (Nov. 25, 2013). On restart Nightly crashes, collects and sends report. Then I ran Windows add/remove and uninstalled Nightly but kept profiles, bookmarks, etc. Restarted computer (Dell Inspiron 1090, Win. 7 Home Premium, SP 1) and Nightly still crashes. It opens window to select one of four profiles then gives message that it is shutting down, do I want to send report. So, I ran the uninstall again this time removing everything. Then I ran a registry cleaner and restarted and ran Nightly install again. This time, of course, it didn't ask which profile to run but instead went directly to the crash behavior exhibited earlier, Nightly can't run, is shutting down, do I want to restart or quit, send a report, etc. So, I restored my computer to a previous state, Nov. 21, 2013, and am now able to run the program but my four profiles are gone along with my bookmarks, addons, etc. I did back up the profiles and bookmarks before trying to upgrade and made record of addons and plugins.

Please help.

Using Firefox, I go to a web page, and on it, there is a button to click for a contest entry. Clicking the button should open a form (not a new web page) to fill out. Nothing happens. This has worked for me in the past, I have entered this contest daily up until last Friday (11/22). Saturday (11/23), this would not work.

I have contacted the web site, and they claim everything is working fine, and they have tried this on multiple web browsers, with no problems - it works properly.

I have tried on multiple web browsers, with the same result - no form to fill out.

I'm using FF25 on Windows 7. When I go to Pandora and Grooveshark I get error messages telling me I need to install a newer version of Flash (v.10 or later). I've downloaded and installed (I think) Flash repeatedly, but I still get that error message. (Btw, I got the same message with IE, but I installed Flash for that and everything's fine.) I read somewhere that I needed to download the latest version of Real Player in order for Flash to work. I did that but get the same error messages. I am not tech savvy and not sure what to do now.

I've upgraded to Win 8.1, Firefox v26, Shockwave, Flash, and the newest Java JRE's. YouTube videos result in an error message and to try again later. The interesting feature is that IE v11 will show the videos with no error. The Win 8.1 upgrade took away my sound, and I've read the other problems that seem to be related to YouTube and sound. But, IE plays the videos with no sound, so that's not sound related.

I currently have my Firefox set to NOT switch to a new tab immediately when a link opens one. However, each time I do click on a link to open a new tab it does switch. I have tried Firefox in safe mode and still have the same issue. I have read previous articles on this, and have also made sure that my appearance is set to default. Any suggestions on this would be appreciated. Thanks.

Using Firefox 26.0, completely fresh download and install.

For various purposes I would like to be able to re-size the entire Firefox window to a width below 374 pixel, however this is not working anymore. It simply stays wider or equal to 374 pixel. Before I did the update to 26.0 this worked just fine.

Of course I can do this with web developer but I prefer to have the entire Firefox window at 200 pixel or 300 pixel width for example.
