The top bar, ie file edit view... are all to tiny for me to see them clearly and it strains my eyes to read them and the other information at the top of the firefox screen, tabs,bookmarks are all hard to read any suggestions? Thanks.

Firefox started crashing with recent 47.0 update. Has continued with 47.0.1

Tried disabling all addons and also my Comodo Internet Security Premium.

As soon as Facebook loads, FF crashes. Other sites work fine. I can open Facebook in Chrome, so it is not a problem with Facebook or my internet connection.

Here are the some of the last several crash reports:

I have a new computer with a new version of Firefox installed. Is there any way to get the old, classic menu back like I had previously (the menu on the top of the screen with File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, etc)? When I hit the "Alt" key the classic menu appears, but as soon as I click on anything it disappears again. In my previous version the menu was always there. In particular, I would like to set it up so I can click once on the Bookmarks tab of the classic menu and have it show a drop down of all my bookmarks like I used to have. Is that possible?

I'm working on creating a website and need to refresh it several times to check updates to it. I'm coming from a mac to windows 10 and previously on the mac you could browse to the middle of the page, refresh the page and would be placed back were you were previously viewing after refreshing at the middle of the page.

I'm having a problem with windows 10 that every time a page is refreshed the current browsing location isn't saved and the page is automatically loaded at the top. Is there any way to fix this error? A similar error happens with the File Explorer when renaming files, it jumps to the renamed file instead of the previous browsing location. Is there a hidden setting for remembering previous browsing location in windows 10?

An older version of Adobe Flash (ver 21.0.0.242) is causing havoc with the latest version of FireFox (ver 47.0.1). I have gone to the Adobe web site and downloaded the installer file for both Adobe Flash and Adobe Reader (also outdated). Before installing these files, I right click on the file and select Properties>Unblock to install them. I also suspend my Anti-virus software to give me enough time to install the files. However, when I attempt to install the files, the Adobe installer gives me the error of "Connection Error" and fails to install the plugins. In the past, the workaround to this problem was going to Adobe's web page " http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html" and downloading a different installation file of the same Adobe Flash version. However, Adobe has discontinued using this page to download a different installer and instead, redirects you to their download page to download the same version that doesn't work. Workaround searches on the web all tend to send you back to the Adobe Flash installer page and right back into an endless loop.

There has to be a simpler way of doing this installation process. Adobe doesn't seem to accept email support questions for their free software and other than the workaround listed above, I have not yet found any solution via internet searches. I'm having this issue on both my Windows Server and all my computers, even though Adobe is detecting the proper OS and downloading the proper file.

How can I install these plugins so that FireFox has the latest versions?

Hi all,

I updated firefox to version 48 today and to my dismay found that it is no longer possible to disable add-on signing, not even for specific addons.

For me this is a showstopper because I am using Firefox at work and I absolutely MUST be able to use the F5 Networks Host Plugin to access a legacy VPN. This plugin has no signature and there is no update provided (yet?) by the network I am connecting to.

This is reason enough for me to stop updating Firefox.

I have gone back to Firefox 47.0.1 which allows me to disable add-on verification and I'm sticking to that version unless someone can tell me there is another way?

Thanks
