Crash ID: bp-9e0d343e-db72-4ff8-bc66-8fa9b2151103

It crashes every time I try to open Firefox. I've tried in Safe mode, with different version (41 and 42) I've uninstalled/reinstalled to no effect.

This is a new laptop running Windows 8.1 Pro and I have not been able to get Firefox to work at any point thus far.

Many versions ago, I [changed an option] so that pdfs would not open in Firefox; now, in v. 42.0, I have no default/built-in pdf viewer at all.

I'm not sure how long ago it was, but I decided I didn't want to use Firefox's default pdf viewer at the time, and because things were painfully slow in-browser, I turned off the default viewer and set options to make sure that all pdfs open outside of the browser, and directly in Adobe. I have no recollection of what I did to achieve it at the time.

Now, for v. 42.0 (and 41.0.2, before) when I go to Options > Applications, and select one of the "Adobe Acrobat Document"s, my only options are "Always Ask," "Save File," or "Use Other..." and there are definitely no Firefox viewer options in "Use Other."

With Adobe Reader's newest terms, and the fact that they can now push updates whenever they want, I'd like to just *never* use it again.

How do I get the built-in pdf viewer back? I realize there are other pdf viewers in existence and I'm picking through those, but I'd like to have an in-browser one again too.

When I try to search up something on Google form the taskbar, it says Untrusted connection, and it doesn't allow you to "Understand The Risks" and continue through. I don't know what it's happening. I just updated firefox, and I also refreshed it and it still doesn't work. When I go to Google.com, it loads, but as soon as I search for something on the site, it appears glitched and the other features of it such as Images, Videos, News, Search tools, automatically takes me to Untrusted Connection.

Locking duplicate thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/1091977]

When I search for something on Google using the search bar it says Untrusted Connection, and it doesn't let me "Understand the Risks" and go through. I'm able to get to Google.com but when I search for something it comes up glitched looking (Shows the old Google Logo, etc.) it doesn't let me use the features such as Images, News, Search tools. It automatically goes to Untrusted connection.

Also when I go to Google.com it says Not Secure Connection.

Now in about:config, setting <browser.preferences.advanced.selectedTabIndex> to <false> does not open a pop-up window, but rather a new tab.

Working global code in userContent.css : a:hover {

 color: white !important;
 background-color: #C00000 !important;
 text-decoration: none !important;

}

That caused a problem with one website so I want to set that rule per domain : @-moz-document domain(facebook.com) {

 a.hover {
   color: white !important;
   background-color: #C00000 !important;
   text-decoration: none !important;
   }

} I had it working some time ago but I must have done something different. In the editor, the words hover and color are blue instead of brown and the code is not working. The same for other sites.

How do I correct the code?

(Sorry for my bad english, it's not my native language) Hello, it's been many months that I have a problem with automatic scrolling Firefox Maintain pressure on the mouse wheel can slide in all directions of the web page, very useful for long pages and also for very high resolution pictures.

Off for several release (from 40.0.0 I think but not certainty), scrolling stops and / or is extremely slow and choppy until the page is not fully charged. This is all the more painful if we wait for loading a heavy image on a slow site.

I tested with the Firefox Safe Mode and it changes nothing. Disable graphics acceleration nor solves this defect. Test a new blank profile ... Remove and reinstall Firefox ... Namely I met no automatic scrolling problem on Internet Explorer or Chrome.

As I visit large high resolution photo galleries, is often sucks having to wait finish loading before dragging on the page with the pressed wheel. I leave then your knowledge to help me determine the source of this defect.

Hello.

I used to use Mozilla Firefox Polish language version, but since few updates language automatically has changed to English. I tried several ways to changed but none works. I tried options in program menu and settings on website but it's still the same. I think problem can be generated by the fact i have mozilla synced on laptop and my smartphone. Still it's strange because on my phone i have Polish language.

Please help me fix it. Mateusz "Harleyowiec" Miłaszewski
