I'm unable to download any attachments directly from Gmail, although saving them to Drive and then downloading from there works, but I have to waste precious seconds with this method and it's pretty frustrating. :) I've tried starting Firefox in safe mode, clearing the cache, disabling ESET Smart Security's web and e-mail protection, but unfortunately none of them helped. I have also tried downloading attachments with Internet Explorer and that works just fine.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox (48.0.1 currently) and Windows 8.1 Pro x64.

So, whenever I go to websites(like someecards, etc) and there are embedded images from Instagram, I can't see the pictures, only blank squares with a clickable description underneath it. I can view the pix fine on Instagram(or sometimes if someone shares Instagram pix on FB, I can see them fine there, too.) Just not embedded.

Any help would be appreciated!

I installed the add-on "PCMan Firefox Extension" in order to use a BBS in the Firefox browser. Now, even after removing the add-on, every single time I open a new tab a small window pops up that says "This link needs to be opened with an application?" even when I am not clicking on any links. Is there a way to prevent this window from appearing?

It seems that ever since Firefox updated (I have version 48.0.1) the suggestions that pop up when I click in the address bar are much too wide. Before the update the suggestions (like previous websites that I had visited) took up only a small space, less than half the width of my screen. Now since the update the suggestions that pop up take up the entire width of the screen. It's really annoying. Does this in fact have to do with the most recent Firefox update and is there any way I can change the size of the suggestions popup smaller, like it was before?

I have an aging Intel iMac, running OS X 10.6 and Firefox 48.0.

The "datareporting" - "Archived" folder— Library / Application Support / Firefox / Profiles— contains numerous monthly folders, each crammed full of files. The one for the current month alone has 107 so far.

Are these really essential, and if not, can they be safely deleted?

Also, can the feature or function creating them be disabled via about:config?

Thanks!

Firefox search box is completely non-operational and Firefox freezes/crashes within seconds/minutes of start.

Dramatis Personae:

Me (a Chrome user, but attempting to help a Struggling Co-worker) Struggling Coworker (co-worker who is not tech savvy, prefers Firefox, and would like to keep the Firefox settings he has been using historically) Poser Coworker (the guy who broke Struggling Coworkers Firefox)

Issue:

I am submitting this on behalf a Struggling Coworker. Last week, Poser Coworker made some kind of changes to Struggling Coworker's preferred Brower, Firefox, supposedly to speed up or make Firefox more efficient. Struggling CW is unsure of what Poser CW did, aside from "remove a series panes." As of writing this post, his Firefox runs for a few seconds or minutes and then crashes. Any fixes involving the search box will not work, as the search box does not execute on anything inputted therein (Firefox just sits there doing nothing, no error message, no thinky icon, just the original input information as entered). The issue is not the internet connection nor the hardware, as Struggling CW is using successfully Chrome as a workaround.

Our IT vendor has traditionally been of limited assistance, so while Struggling CW has engaged IT vendor, it may be more efficient to receive feedback from the Mozilla community, where there are people who know what they are talking about and are motivated to fix the problem (as an example, IT vendor cannot even successfully explain to me or provide me instructions for the proper Outlook settings to get it to work with the email server and security settings that they have arranged, while sales tech company's IT successfully instructed me to set up a complicated security device on a different network, so it's not me!)

I have already attempted the fix recommended here (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1075976); the problem persists as described. My objectives here are to get Firefox fully functional without losing any Struggling CW's settings or profile data. The issue, I am guessing, is either with Firefox or some process that Firefox uses with his operating platform and/or his PC).

OS = Windows 7 Professional (64 bit)

PC = Dell Optiplex 3010

Processor = Intel Core i5-3470 CPU @ 3.20 GHz

RAM = 4 GB

Firefox version = 48.0.2.6079

Hello Mozilla,

When attempting to access Sky Fantasy Football Site above I get repeated......

"Whoops! You appear to have lost your connection! Please ensure you have an internet connection and then try again"

I am not alone, there are many people on the Sky forum with same issue and they have marked it down to a bug in Firefox, which would appear to be correct because Google Chrome and Safari both work

Have tried uploading the screen shot below but that does not appear to be working

Thanks Paul

Firefox v48.0.1 OS X yosemite

In the last 2-3 weeks I am noticing that the browser screen isnt repainting when switching between tabs. Typically the browser screen will be frozen on the content of the last tab opened. To see content of the other tabs the last tab needs to be closed. This is pretty making Firefox unusable.

On Windows 7 Enterprise, x64, FF v. 48.0.2, tried both x64 and x86 and same problem occurs.

Following launch, FF opens to start page tab, with the default browser question popup. Thereafter, it is unresponsive. Task Manager shows "Not Responding". Processes shown as taking around 145,000K of memory.

I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling multiple times.

I tried to start in Safe Mode from command line, and the Safe Mode dialog appears, but buttons are also nonresponsive and will not proceed.

I do not see any crash reports, just InstallTime files, and the events folder is empty.

I have done numerous malware checks.

I don't know what else to try.

Thanks for any help.

In the past week or so, Ive been seeing a box in my junk mail that says to report spam here. It is in the body of the mail. I clicked it and it gives a link to ask a question about it It's a red screen and says this site is known for Phishing etc... and gives this address 46.182.32.110 It has another link that says " why is this paged blocked?" I clicked it and it took me to supposedly Your site and has all the preferences etc showing you how to use your privacy settings etc...Sometimes the mails do not have this option. And sometimes if you click it you go to a blue screen , supposedly Yahoo thanking you for marking it as spam and tells you to click the button to the right to close. I don't see a button on the right on my MAC. I went to the Apple store yesterday to have it scanned for Malware and install a program to use on it. Is that a legit program now with you? Funny thing is.....I have gone from 100-200 spams per day to maybe 10-15 !! Whats Up??????
