I just updated my Firefox browser to version 41.0.2 on a Windows 8.1 environment and now many of the pages I visit display outlined text. How do I correct this? In my research, I stumbled across an article that suggested installing an Add-On that allows a custom CSS script to run, forcing Firefox to change any instance of Helvetica to become Arial. However, this article was written three years earlier and the add-on is no longer available. Any suggestions for someone who's not so tech savvy? ...thanks!

This started happening after I began using the fullscreen mode and split screen view on the new OS X El Capitan.

I don't know what I did, but the history/downloads/bookmarks window (the one that pops up when you click "Show All History", etc.) is now permanently stuck in fullscreen. It takes up the entire screen, and it disables the menu bar and the Dock as a normal fullscreen would -- but it is clear this is a bug, since I can somehow move it around (see screenshot). No title bar pops up when I move my cursor to the top of the screen, and the usual Control-Command-F shortcut for toggling fullscreen doesn't seem to work.

How can I fix this?

Hi Folks, First of all I wish to say that Mozilla's Firefox and Thunderbird have been my Internet Communications apps for the past 8 years and that I will use no other apps because of your consistently excellent work on keeping up with both features and function! Lately I've been by the fact that plugins (namely Acrobat and Flash plugins) have not registered as having been installed! I ALWAYS restart Firefox after ANY plugin update installs, but this problem seems to be happening with the more recent updates after the most Recent updates to Firefox itself. Should I do a computer restart?? As I said this seems to be a very recent problem. And again, MANY thanks to everyone for 2 "don't-leave-home-without-it" apps!!!!

I have many times set Firefox to remember history, close Firefox and reopen later only to find it has reverted to using custom settings. The setting to clear history upon closing is unchecked and should not affect. But again, the "Firefox will", resets itself when I close Firefox. Firefox acts this way on both my desktop and my laptop, so should not be a problem with a particular PC.

Caftor Adom seems to be an organization in Israel that looks to document web sites that promote violence. Somehow, I must have responded to some kind of message from them and they added a red button to next to the "Open Menu" icon on my toolbar. I would like to get rid of it But I can't figure out how. If I click the red button, they bring up a window that asks me to make a comment and add some kind of code to document something about the violent web site I've blundered into. Then I'm supposed to transmit it. I've sent them emails and obviously non-violent web sites, including their own, asking them to help me delete the red button. I've had no response. It's on the Mozilla window so I hope you can help me delete it. It appears just to be a nuisance and you never know. I'll include a screen print that shows that the button is outside the dotted line of the area you set aside for adding features to the tool bar.

Thanks, steve mori

I have lost or chosen to fix FF in the past (Refresh). Today, something else is going on. I did a system restore to fix my DESKTOP only,

I also had a FF update (41.0.2). After I restored everything, some of my FF tools had to be installed. That shouldn't have anything to do with Microsoft Outlook. So, what I had to restore was Saved Password Manager, which is not Firefox. Even when I reinstalled this addon, my passwords came back, but not this time.

Do I have to do a refresh - or can I just install passwords, even though they are not saved in the FF manager?

I didn't attempt this, because I am exhausted, cannot see straight, and can't follow directions, because I'm too tired. And especially because nothing else is NOT working. Why would an update kick off ah addon? It's still compatible.

Thank you.

In my work computer, Firefox always gives "sec_error_unknown_issuer" error and only on HTTPS sites.

I have browsed the forums and understood that this is most probably caused by a sofware that performs HTTPS scanning. (See [this](https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1030927) and [this](https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1026631#answer-650916) answer)

However, I really don't know which software is performing the HTTPS scanning exactly.

Is there a way that I can determine which software is doing the HTTPS scanning so that I will be able to add its certificate to Firefox and hence be able to use the Firefox properly?

Thank you very much in advance

Regards

My computer had an old sync for another account. I forgot the password, so I had to restore it and to sync everything again. But every time I restarted computer or Firefox I was receiving the same yellow error message at the bottom of the screen that "Sync encountered an error while syncing: Incorrect name or password. Sync will automatically retry this action". But it didn't retried this action and i was signing in every day. I read a lot of information about it and found out that if I had another computers synced to the same account I have to update it otherwise I wouldn't be able to sync anything. Cause I don't have an opportunity to update Sync on another computer, I decided to create another Sync account. But unfortunately I still have this yellow error everytime I restart the browser, even this account is new. Please, help me! This situation is very annoying! Thanks in advance!
