On two different profiles, the Customize option simply isn't working. I see three different places on the GUI to click on Customize, and none works. Nothing happens when I click on them, beyond the letters "Customize" appearing at the top of a tab.

After appearing earlier this evening, the LastPass icon is also failing to appear on both profiles.

I cannot figure out how to keep Adobe Flash from continually crashing. I submit crash reports, reload, have the current up to date version, and I still can't use it in Foxfire. I have to go to Google Chrome and then it's fine. Why can't I get it to work with Foxfire?

Local large html file (3MB) very slow to load and select in firefox, much faster in IE11

Hello, I like to be able to read fanfiction from web sites offline, so I either use a program to download the html or copy all chapters into a text file and then convert to html using jart word processor. Large html files, or really anything over 600KB is very slow to load or select. I don't know if it's because it's a large block of text or what, but in IE11 it's much faster. EG: 2.94MB, (500100 words) takes approximately 30 seconds to load in IE and maybe 2 minutes to load in firefox on a slow netbook (1GB RAM, 1.66GHZ Processor) 1:30 on my faster laptop (4GB RAM, 1.66GHZ Processor. it takes about that amount of time to select all, too, as I discovered when I wanted to select a whole file to edit it in notepad before reconverting it back to html. Any ideas why? I tried loading just the plain text file, which took maybe 10 seconds to load in firefox, and 5 in IE, Kinda strange considering that the plain text file was over 2MB without any of the html added. You may be wondering why I don't just load the text file if I'm so bothered, but I like the way my screen reader reads html and the little tweaks you can make with it like adding the title. the only things the html file has in it are the title plus title tags, line and paragraph breaks and a couple of fonts. there are no style sheets or css, images or anything large. I've been a faithful firefox user since 2012, when my friend told me that Internet explorer was rubbish, full of security threats and non custumisable. I really hope someone can come up with a solution, I don't want to have to use IE whenever I don't have Internet and want to read because I'm sick of waiting for it to load. Thank you. Regards: Melissa Cox.

Hello, In the past, on a stock android 4.3 (before the sdcard policy) I had success with saving on my microSD with the browser.download.dir option. I am currently trying out a cyanogenmod version of android 5.1.1 with root access, but pointing the variable to an sdcard path and chosing the firefox download does nothing other than displaying a toast "download started". As soon as I change it to a custom folder in internal memory, everything works again. I suspect this is about write permissions? Firefox never asks me for superuser rights, nor have I seen any in its manifest. How would I grant access? Alternatively, is there a way to handle downloads with a third party app, eg the ES explorer download utility? Thank you for any assistance.

Every time when I click option, Firefox create a new tab of about;preference and stops to responds. Also the same thing happens when I downloads something. I would add an image but it turns out that clicking "browse" image to add to this question crashes it too. I have re-installed(completely uninstall and install again) and refreshed Firefox and its the same.

I use my samsung s3 to read webtoons online. I have been using a javascript to translate korean webtoons into english but mozilla crashes as soon as I scroll down to read the webtoon. The javascript is javascript:(function() { var oss_js = document.createElement('script'); oss_js.type = 'text/javascript'; oss_js.src = 'http://static.oddsquad.org/js/naver.reader.oss.js'; document.body.appendChild(oss_js);})();

The website for the webtoon is comic.naver.com Does mozilla crash because of da javascript or due to the webtoon? I use da javascript on desktop and it doesnt crash but on android it does Thank you

Firefox 40.0.2 for Mac says that it can not install a security patch because my account does not have permission. I only have one account on my Mac, and it is authorized to install software. Firefox said to contact my System Administrator, but I do not have a System Administrator account. I recently replaced the hard drive on my MacBook laptop, and I went to an Apple Store to get an O/S installed. I have O/S 10.7.5.
