Firefox is not allowing me to interact with certain elements on webpages. Here is a list of some of the websites that I have trouble with:

- http://railsapis.codeschool.com/levels/1/challenges/1 and http://railscasts.com/episodes/417-foundation?autoplay=true

 I can't use the video controls

- https://soundcloud.com/jo-o-anderson-1/loreen-euphoria

 I can't use the seekbar.

- http://yashry.com/search?q=iPhone

 The arrows of the price range slider don't drag. Instead, the underlying text is selected.

I tried using Firefox on a friend's Mac and it's working properly. I guess it's a problem with an entry in my about:config, but I don't even know what to search for to describe this problem.

I'm using Firefox 33.1.1 on Mac OS X 10.10.1 (14B25).

I am unable to stop FF from requiring the User Account Control dialog box before it will load. I uninstalled and reinstalled a clean copy, which worked the first time, and then re-established the UAC dialog on subsequent starts. This is incredibly annoying. It has never happened before with FF. How do I stop this behavior? I will stop using the damn program if this can't be fixed.

I went to about:config and found browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone had 33.1.1 as the reason two startup pages were launching. I clicked modify and removed the 33.1.1 but it still put itself back in. I then saw browser.startup.homepage_override.buildID clicked Modify and cleared the number but it put itself back. This just started happening and now this appears in the address bar: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/33.1.1/whatsnew/?oldversion=23.0.1

Ordinarily this never happens but always starts happening after I update to the newest version.

Thank you in advance for your time and attention in this matter.

Sincerely,

Christopher Frank

I was trying to add an entry to my bookmarks.The drop down list of my many bookmarks appeared. I scrolled upwards with the arrow at the right hand side to find the folder where I wanted to save the bookmark. Suddenly, the 'screen' of bookmarking changed. Now when I try to bookmark all I see , when I click the 'down' arrow are

Sometimes, when I try to bookmark, I also see a few unrelated folders,but I cannot scroll these either.

I think I accidentally removed the Address field from the address bar (Remove from Toolbar...click...ooops!!!!). And Customize won't open, so I cannot access the list of buttons and fields to restore it. I don't want to reinstall or reset Firefox if I don't have to. How can I get the address field back and get Customize... working again? Thanks.

This seems like it should be self-evident, but I am just not finding it.

The add-on page says that the add-on includes a new home page, so I tried resetting the home page in preferences. It takes me to the Firefox home page, but there doesn't appear to be an "access interest dashboard" button.

I've checked the various places where I can access history--no dice.

I've looked at the descriptions of the add-on in several places (both on Mozilla forums and on third-party sites)--still nothing to tell me where to find something that looks even vaguely like the data presented in the pictures of what the add-on does.

I tried to find a button that I could add to the customizable menu; nothing.

I tried opening a new tab and checking the options there. Nothing.

Dear FF volunteers,

Thank you for your service!!!

FF showed note that start process is slow and I should reset settings. I did so. And also deleted the profile and created a new profile just to be safe and start from a very clean slate.

The new profile worked for a few hours fine, but when I start Firefox now, it opens with a new profile, i.e. all bookmarks and extensions are gone, except for the Lastpass and Avast plugin.

Why?

I had installed these extensions: Lasspass, Avast antivirus, easy copy, Adblock plus, Bbuffer, Fireshot.

Is one of them corrupting the Firefox profile?

When I press the "Automatically add" button for Troubleshooting information here in this form, I get the error message that it can't connect to the mozilla server. I had the same problem when installing the lastpass extension. Which I then did my manually installing it.

I appreciate your help!

I just upgraded to a newer used laptop, the first to use Windows 7, for me. This is my first day, so I still have a lot to learn. I went to open Facebook, but the loggin page font was so tiny. It looked like the page had shrunk. Not all sites do this. YouTube will have a normal size video screen, but all the list at the right is similarly like a 2 point font, unreadable. I opened the control panel to adjust the font size there. It made all the Windows based pages quite large, but did not change my browser.

What??? I clicked the button on this page to automatically add a troubleshooter and a window opened to install Sinc or something. that didn't seem right?

I have written in about this before; I originally set the "Location Bar" inside the Firefox settings NOT to suggest my bookmarks, but after a while it was starting to ignore that command and it would set itself back up after restarting Firefox to suggest bookmarks when typing in a web address. This problem was solved by setting up a new profile within Firefox. After that, this problem no longer existed.

Now as of today, the problem is back. I wish there was a way to contact developers of Firefox and let them know of this issue. If there are no other solutions out there except for setting up a new profile, fine but it's starting to get annoying that I have to go through this process everytime this problem happens.

I have already developed a C# win form application and a chrome extension with native messaging (another C# console app) to fetch user's active tab url. I have also developed an msi setup in WiX to write under the registry (HKLM/SOFTWARE/Wow6432Node/Google/Chrome/Extensions and HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Google\Chrome\NativeMessagingHosts) programmatically and tested the installation of the chrome extension by running the setup on different Windows 7 machines. I am publishing this extension on chrome web store and then I shall install the extension on several client computers.

I want to accomplish the same with Mozilla Firefox. I am newbie in this field and going through some Firefox developers guides (XPCOM, js-ctypes etc.) and getting little confused with multiple links.

It would be of great help if anyone can guide me towards the exact solution. Please note that, 1) I have to install the extension programmatically through the same msi package which already contains my own C# app and the chrome extension with native app and 2) the client machines will be Windows only but any version (XP (optional), 7, 8, Server anything).

When I install the 'External Application Buttons 2 0.13' in FF 33.1.1, the small rectangle that appears in the toolbar contains a button that I cannot delete. This button can be edited so is not the problem, but at the same time a new entry shows up at the bottom of the Tools menu 'Przycisk aplikacji', and that I cannot get rid of. If I disable the extension, the new entry in the Tools menu disappears, but it returns as soon as the extension is re-enabled. Is this a known bug and, if so, how does one get around it? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. (Windows XP-SP3 32bit)
