Almost daily (?) I get a slider in announcing that there is a new version or update. I click on it to read, and the window opens to version 39.0 update. Were I to check the Firefox "About", the version reads "39.0, Firefox is up to date, You are currently on the beta update channel"...? So, are these updates not following a numbering sequence? How do I know these updates are not some intrusion, etc.?

  1. 2. IS there a way to get away from the Beta, just in case? Should I?

Thank you! - most appreciated!

I have tried everything I can find to stop bing.vc from opening as the start page in firefox version 39 and so far nothing has worked. I am unable to find any reference to in in about:config; a refresh of firefox did not help; no add-ons refer to it and conduit or search protect do not appear in uninstall programs in control panel. No malware removal tool has any effect on it and I have used all that were recommended on the Mozilla support site. Help please!!

I keep getting the message that my Adobe Shockwave Flash Player has vulnerabilities and needs updating. I click on the update now and it goes to the Mozilla plugin updater, but all that happens is it spins, it never gives me a list or a way to update the player. So I went to Adobe and updated the player there, but it still is blocked. I updated my version of Firefox as well, but the plug in updater just keeps spinning. Everything was working fine until yesterday when this all started, now nothing is working right, constantly getting "Firefox Not Responding". I think it's all the same problem, something is hung up.

Firefox 39 Tile Problems?

So I just now updated firefox, and when I opened a new tab, Instead of having 12 tiles for my top sites, it only had 8. I use those 12 sites quite often, so going back down to 8 after a long while is really annoying. Are there any add-ons, or ways I can undo my last update so I go back to the 12 tiles on my new tab, or will Firefox go back to 12 tiles in later updates? It sounds odd to be griping about this, but it feel like there's a lot of space wasted when there are only 8 top site tiles as opposed to 12.

Hi, I am getting a new dialogue window when I use Firefox to access my yahoo email account. I never had the box ask for my login and password. It used to only give me the option to click on the words "save password." Is this a new dialogue box from Mozilla that displays your login information and password? Thanks

I've updated to the new sync but now I feel I have far less control I can't see how much data is being stored - whereas I could before. I have less access to my information and I have no idea where it is I feel quite dis-empowered by the new sync set up and cut of from MY data which is completely antithetical to the Mozilla ethos. 1, how has this happened 2, can this please be fixed? Fundamentally, someone has confused sleekness and simplicity with less information and less user control - having less control and contact with my data is not sleek and simple it's actually quite distressing!

When I switched my PC off last night my Firefox new tabs page was displaying twelve thumbnails, four per row in three columns. When I switched my PC on today I opened a new tab page and there were only eight thumbnails showing, four per row but only two rows. I haven't changed any of my setting in my sleep so why has the page layout changed and how can I revert it to the way that it was? Altering the zoom on the new tabs page, to 80%, allows me to view fifteen thumbnails (I don't actually want fifteen just my original twelve) but only on that specific page, if I open a fresh new tabs page it is back to displaying only eight thumbnails again.

My old Windows 7 PC is dying. It will only run in Safe mode. So I have a shiny new MacBook AIr running Yosemite. I have installed the latest version of Firefox on the Mac, the PC has 39.0, both on my home wifi network. I am signed in to Sync on both computers, there is a message saying Sync will start momentarily, but then nothing happens. What am I missing? Is there another step to the process?

All i did was wipe down my keyboard and boom, no access to the internet at all !!!?? Script error; all websites won't load - and do so via Explorer! New Tab page tiles has only top row of four not the usual two rows of four, and they are hidden behind one another. Have tried all the recommends that i've been able to find. Uninstalled and re-loaded entire firefox; refreshed firefox; about:config to re-start default New Tab page cleared the tiles on the top row but did not re-apply blank tiles for both rows of four, and the stacking behind has remains; cleared History and functionality for the tiles has returned sort of, but still only the top row of tiles appears. And this is only after logging on via Explorer! Tried again this morning and no access whatsoever via mozilla icon! Can i get firefox working properly ??

HI All,

I have noticed this problem before and I was wondering if anyone else has experienced it.

I updated Firefox today to version 39. All my themes remained in place, however when I later updated my Skype, my themes disappeared.

I have noticed that anytime I update Skype, my Firefox themes disappear. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
