When I go to e-mail I get the inbox. I cannot access other folders such as 'sent items' or 'spam' however and when I go back to inbox I get the same message. The problem only arises using firefox - not internet explorer. I have tried resetting firefox and the default settings without effect.

DigiSaver is popping up all over the place, and I need it removed. How do I do this? There is no Add On bar on my Firefox page and this all started after the last Firefox update. I want it gone, it is intrusive and I never requested it.

Yes, I was once plagued by flash player based ads opening tons of popups so I set flash player to ask for activation, solved my problem.... BUT, I managed to press "Allow and remember" instead of just "Allow now", so my question is, where to do I find the list with the sites that are not required to ask for permission? As I am now plagued by excessive popups once more... I have ran both Malware and Antivirus scans, neither showed any sign of finding any files related to the ads.

Firefox Blink or Quick Screen Flash

On common websites such as Facebook and Yahoo! (for example) and many other not so common ones the Firefox browser window will flash or blink briefly. At least for me this happens quite frequently, while performing what I would consider to be pretty basic, normal browsing activities. I might have perhaps anywhere from to 3 - 15 tabs open with no video, no animation, with pretty basic text and pictures.

The blink or flash is almost like a popup window was trying to load but failed to appear although there is no notice of any kind. This is not a repetitive blinking but is more of a very quick flash or screen blink. It is not the monitor. It only seems to only happen once or twice and then will take a bit of a "break", perhaps a few seconds to a few minutes then it will happen again or it may not. For some reason it does seem to happen the most frequently on Facebook but it is not limited to Facebook.

I am currently on build 28.0 of Firefox and Firefox says it is currently up to date. Under Tools > Advanced > General Browsing > Use hardware acceleration when available; is currently unchecked. I have searched through the other threads that have dealt with other “blinking issues” and have tried the solutions there to no avail. I have gone through 'safe mode' and a restart and it has not seemed to work. If it matters I am currently using Windows 7 Professional, 64 bit. I do use Norton 360 as well.

This issue has only appeared possibly with in the last three builds or so and has not ever happened ever before. Does anyone have any suggestions or a fix suggestion? I really dislike Chrome, but may have to switch as this is getting pretty annoying.

Hi,

I am running FF v.28 and have not been able to open up PDF's in a very long time. In fact I don't remember the last time this worked properly. When clicking on a PDF link, the page either opens up blank or nothing happens. I can view PDF's in that other browser without problems. I have tried "various" fixes found on the net but still nothing. I will try removing FF and reinstalling as a last resort. Otherwise I am at my wits end.

Thank you.

Sometimes I have to bring my computer to the computer store, but I always make sure to delete any information from programs like Firefox, just incase. But I read that Firefox saves all your information in a folder in Appdata. So I was wondering, if I were to move that folder to an external harddrive, and delete it from the computer, would all my information from Firefox get deleted from the computer, or will it still save that information elsewhere?

And if it does delete all the information, if I were to move the folder that I save on an external harddrive back onto my computer, would Firefox get access to all that information again?

I will not use Firefox 29 or newer until the crappy interface introduced in v29 it made user friendly, and bring back certain missing thing from v28 (they may be profile holdovers from a much older version), no the classic theme restorer does not bring them back. The above is here simply to try and stop suggestions about using v29

I have tried going into options menu Firefox>Options>Advanced>Never Check for Updates, but that does not prevent updates. I have had to uninstall Firefox 29 5 times today every time after telling it to "Never check for updates."
