I recently refreshed Firefox, and found myself suddenly dealing with an inability to clearly see and read what the letters on my screen were. I tried to change the font back to what it was, and that failed. I thought maybe refreshing again would fix the problem (I'm and optimist), but no. Changing the setting in options changes nothing in my browser. It's irritating because I don't like other browsers, but unless this can be corrected, I may have to find a new one.

My OS is Vista Ultimate and I'm using Firefox 46.0.1 (I also use Seamonkey version 2.40 and have the same problems on there!). My Java and Flash plugins are up to date but the videos still won't play! Is Vista too outdated for them to work or do I have to configure something differently?

How can I prevent sites from forcing themselves to full screen? I think this is in other versions.

on another computer (Toshiba, Windows 7) on 5/23/16 Firefox starting running very slow. Tried many remedies. None worked. Then, after closing FF it would not open again. Today, 5/24/16, begain virus scan, malware scan, disk check, system check, registry check, etc. then uninstalled Firefox. It would not uninstall. Error message said I had to close Firefox before it would allow uninstall. All indicators were that Firefox was not then running. But, upon opening Task Manager I found two Firefox (32) programs running, so I turned them off. But, the uninstaller would not allow the uninstall. Using the file display system found at Windows Explorer I manually uninstalled FF. Removed shortcuts on screen display. Then using browser Internet Explorer I found the Mozilla official website and downloaded the latest version of FF. Then I installed it. Got a shortcut on the display screen, clicked it, no action - FF would not start. Went to Windows Explorer again, found FF planted under "Program Files (x86)" and located the application file simply called "Firefox.exe" clicked it - no response, that is Firefox would not load. What is going on? I have lost my FF! I want it back. Why won't version 46.0.1 start on the Toshiba especially since I am writing and using the same version of FF to write this complaint - but this FF 46..0.1 is working just fine on the HP computer that I am writing this on (it is an XP about 15 years old!). Don't know who to ask. Don't know why it isn't working. Don't know what to try. Thanks for anyones help. Injin

Hello everyone!

Since a couple of days I can no longer download any files (I've tried multiple types, like .pdf and .doc but also some videos). I already searched for this problem, but nothing has helped so far. I have already tried everything listed here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files and also some advices elsewhere on the forum (I am not sure anymore which). The precise error is this: when I click on a download (for example an e-mail attachment) the download arrow turns blue, but when I click it, the download manager shows the file with "Failed" underneath it. So the download is not even started, it immediately says that it failed. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks in advance! Kind regards,

Daan

I worked in private mode, Firefox updated after that and all my passwords are gone. logins.json and key3.db are in their place, logins.json full of logins and crypted passwords, but 'saved logins' window says no logins are here. What could it be?

upd:Firefox Sync was switched on, but its password was also lost so I was needed to log in again.

upd2: Password manager says that I saved password to this page on many websites, but "View saved passwords" shows me empty form.

Address bar overwrites what I've written when page finishes loading

When I want to do a google search I open a new tab and write my query into the address bar. Usually I open the new tab by finding a link on the current tab and opening it in a new tab. This works quite poorly because I usually start typing before the page has finished loading, and once the page has finished loading everything I've written up to that point is removed and replaced with the URL for the page I opened. Example:

From the current page I suddenly get the urge to google for good pasta recipies. So I right click the mozilla support banner and open it in a new tab. I go to that tab, click the address bar and start to write "best pasta recipie". In the middle of writing that sentence the page is done loading (which I don't realize, because I never learn, apparently) which means that what I end up submitting is 'https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/sta recipie'. To my disappointment I'm not redirected to a google search for the best pasta recipie.

This is incredibly annoying, since I run into this several times a day on average.

Firefox 46.0.1, Power Mac 3.0, OS X Yosemite It is possible to connect to any other site, but not to google.com

I already followed some tips found in this forum: -Delete recent history -No proxy option -Refresh Firefox -Uninstall/Install

After I delete recent history it can connect to google.com, but once the history entries start to increase (after two or three times I make a search with google.com) the tabs says "Connecting..." and the bottom status bar "Waiting for www.google.com... but nothing happens.

I can search with Yahoo.com or go to any other site, but not google.com (Firefox) I have Google Chrome and Safari installed and I don´t have any connection problems with them I can ping to google.com:

I have tried all the resets and cleared cache's, uninstalled Firefox and reinstall. Disabled firewall, disabled virus protection. Same results. I have a brand new Hp Notebook running Windows 10 purchased 3 weeks ago. Kapersky internet security installed on first day. Facebook worked for 2 weeks, then one day tried to open and hasn't worked since. Works fine on IE.

Hi, I have a vista computer, firefox up to date, flash up to date, but in the past week or so it started hanging and crashing with no ability to work. I have flash protection mode unchecked (not happy about that), have no access to hardware acceleration (unless there's a work around to get to it, since you need flash to work to get there), nothing has been changed on my machine since it started crashing. I do have Norton Security, and I suppose something might have automatically updated on my machine. However I suspect either Flash or Firefox updated recently, thus creating the problem. Is there any solution to this, knowing I have vista with I guess some limitations related to that? Remember, this only started happening like a week or so ago. Thanks so much for any info!!!
