Hi, Am using Firefox 40.0.2 on a Macbook Air and have the spinning ball of death all the time recently and only on Firefox... other browsers are ok. When I disabled all Add-ons, the spinning ball stops. When I painstakingly disabled and tested one at a time, the spinning ball never went away. How is this possible? Is there anything I'm not thinking of or anything else I can try? Here are screenshots of all my add-ons. Thanks!!

With your latest update, I can no longer use LastPass, TrendMicro, in the toolbar, or FBPurity to clean up the junk I don't have time to see. I get the message that their signatures are not usable, and you disabled them. I can't use Firefox without them, so how do we fix this issue?

This is a new feature that has just appeared, but I don't need it (it's indicated in a red box in the attached screenshot). However, it takes up space on the bookmarks pop-up window. I suppose it's a sign that I need to clean and organize my bookmarks, but I still would prefer to turn it off so it doesn't appear in the pop-up. I'm using Firefox 49.0b1 on a 2013 MacBookPro running OS 10.10.5 Thanks!

To, whom this may concern,
I recently notice the changes on FireFox 48.0.1 where the address bar drop down fonts has been made smaller, wondering if there is anyway to make the address bar drop down fonts bigger or as it was in the previous versions?
I already have a short sight vision & wear glasses by making the font size smaller than previous versions is current a big problem for me at the moment.
Help on this matter would be appreciated, Jessica

About "Be Nice" .. not so nice below, BUT I AM SIMPLY FED UP WITH FIREFOX SCREWUPS ... YES, SWITCHING TO GOOGLE CHROME, BUT I NEED THIS FIXED TO GET MY DATA BACK AND EXPORT :
Once again ... Firefox has destroyed my bookmarks, add-ons etc. when I "updated" Firefox ... Macbook Pro OS X
in the past, I have cumulatively taken hours to fix this -- on 4-5 occasions of the SAME PROBLEM (read: unfixed by Mozilla/Firefox)
a) why cant Firefox get their stuff together? .. WHY DOESN'T MOZILLA/FIREFOX FIX THIS !!!!
b) do they think my time is free? how can they, getting paid for their software development, expect me to lose money away from my business every time I "upgrade" ... so presumptious, so offensive, so oblivious to its "clients"
c) I don't know of any ... any ... any .... any software developer that requires a user to fix it's software -- again sometimes taking hours, including trying to find Help like this Mozillla user "support" input -- after an "upgrade" ... simply unbelieveable, simply UNACCEPTABLE ... TO YOU FIREFOX PEOPLE OR ITS REPS ... WILL YOU PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE AND GET WITH THE 21ST CENTURY? ....
d) WHERE IS THE “SUPPORT"? .. where is the IN PERSON support that is going to fix my computer after screwing up my long input data gathering with their so-called "upgrade" ???? Two things are for sure: 1) it's gonna get fixed and 2) I'm certainly not going to spend any more of my own time and lose money from my business to fix Firefox's programming screwups. DON’T KNOW OF ANY … ANY … ANY … ANY company that does not have IN-PERSON SUPPORT … software and its functions are complex .. they need to be supported through interpersonal interaction … every other company in the world knows this … why not Mozilla???? I just don’t get it.
e) For past and present, even this "help" note, where do I invoice Mozilla for my time lost? ... where headquarters? .. accounts payable?/ I assume one of the non-Mozilla, non-person reps knows the answer to this ... surely they don't expect me to lose money by way of their "upgraded" product.
f) As one of you reps sugggested last time this happened : "well you chose Firefox, ... if u don't like problems, go use another browser" ... gee, that's good customer support ... our product sucks so use another -- geez.
g) Indeed I now intend to use another, but I will first be satisfied by Mozilla/Firefox's restoration of my computer, cumulative time lost and literal restoration of data exactly as was before the "update", and the payment by Mozilla for all my time in trying to remediate this and if any data lost, the historical time used to cumulate and enter such data.
If anyone out there in the GREAT MOZILLA/FIREFOX ABYSS knows anything about their products and their continuing failures, please respond to my questions above.
I expect someone at Mozilla or a rep thereof to, for once, BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR FAULTY PRODUCTS AND CUMULATIVE STRESS BURDEN AND MONEY LOST BY CUSTOMERS.
I AM LOSING MONEY AS I SPEAK, AS I DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO MY BOOKMARKS WHICH I NEED AT-THE-READY WHEN WORKING ... SO … SOMEBODY, SOMEWHERE, FIX THIS NOW!! _________ Again, not so nice, but perhaps a reader can understand my ongoing frustrations. NOTHING PERSONAL TO ANY INDIVIDUAL PERSON. I AM ADDRESSING ORGANIZATIONAL ISSUES.

I will click on the URL for a specific website (often a Tumblr blog) and the browser will automatically redirect me to a Yahoo! search for terms related to that phrase. In some cases I can click the back button and it will take me to the website I originally wanted to go to, but sometimes it doesn't even do that. It's very annoying. The most common example of this is when I attempt to visit the blog gaslightgallows.tumblr.com, which redirects me to the search screenshotted in the attached image.

Is this statement below true? If so I will be forced to use another browser. These are safe and well functioning extensions I have installed from trusted web developers. I have trusted Firefox since, well "forever", and now limiting or even causing my extensions to stop functioning is bad. So upset about this and after all these years of having a functioning browser with the ease of making it more my own and having limited use such as with Chrome, Safari or IE is far the worst decision I have ever seen in the history of Mozilla. Hoping some feedback from others may help the developers make a better decision, and hoping Firefox can remain in the top for user-friendly experience. There are enough FREE web extensions out there to protect us all from malicious web sites and virus protection programs we all can use to keep us safe on our computers and web, why would a decision be made to limited extension security be implemented when all is working fine. Even my McAfee SiteAdvisor and Avast Online Security are showing they cannot be verified now with version 40. Ridiculous and bad for consumers who have always liked and trusted Firefox for a more user-friendly experience.

Mozilla just announced their intent to deprecate so called XUL-based add-ons in favor of what they call the WebExtensions API within the next year or two. The WebExtensions API is supposed to be mostly compatible to Chrome/Safari extension APIs.
What does this mean for XUL-based add-ons? Well, for starters, Extensions will be dead if XUL-based add-ons with XPCOM access are gone. Simple as that. The new APIs would only allow for a severely limited in functionality, severely stripped down Extensions at best.
Gone will be add-ons that e.g. let you change major bits about the Firefox user interface (e.g. tabs tree add-ons), add-ons that allow you to do more “advanced” stuff than just showing or slightly altering websites, such as e.g. restarting the browser upon click (unless mozilla kindly provides an API for that, which won’t be compatible with Chrome, of course). Add-ons like NoScript will be severely limited in their feature set as well. Say byebye to Greasemonkey and hello to Tampermonkey, with it’s limitations. Want that add-on that lets you change the new tab page for something else or enhances that page? Maybe it will be available, maybe not, depending on if and when mozilla kindly provides WebExtensions APIs for such things. And of course, depending on if there will be an author creating this entirely new add-on from scratch.
What this also means: Almost all your existing add-ons will be broken, entirely, save for some Add-on SDK add-ons, namely those that don’t do anything fancy. Sure, even today, lots of add-ons break, and some add-ons will not get updated when they do and there are no suitable replacements. However, with this change, almost every add-on will be completely broken and in need of major updating by the extension authors. Good luck with that.
It is safe to say, that Firefox will not be Firefox anymore as far as extensions go, but instead will become yet another Chrome-clone.
To be clear: I was furious when the extension signing stuff was announced and then actually implemented, which effectively created yet another Walled Garden, but regarding this announcement I am just sad. Right now, it feels like I just learned my dear old friend Firefox is going to die.

I cannot believe Mozilla did not give the option to turn off the so called `Smart Bar`. I have no need to check my history through the address bar and the only thing it does is get in the way, making it incredibly easy to click on links I no longer need to go back to. Amazing how something introduced into Firefox to uncomplicate checking your history has made browsing the web more complicated.

Please try again in a few minutes. If this doesn't work, you might want to contact your admin and report the following error: 800478A1."
This occurred before on a previous version of Firefox. If Firefox is not holding any information (private browsing) why can I not log back in?

I have Firefox 54.0.1 on Max OS-X 10.10.5. I must have closed my Firefox window without realizing it. I was checking an email and clicked a link to a google doc, which I quickly printed and then close the window. Then, when I went to go to my other firefox window, it was gone. Because I'd opened a new window (with the google doc) and closed it, not having realized I must have closed the previous window I had going rather than minimizing it, the "restore previous session" wasn't an option.
I had lots of tabs open in the window I want, and now it's a couple of windows back and I can't access it. Can you help me get those tabs back please?

I am creating a single page app and newly created <select></select> does not work. It seems the problem is these select do not get focus when I click on it. If I (1) set focus programmatically; or, (2) rigth-click on it, it works normally. Firefox 35 / 36 on Mac OSX 10.10.2.

When I go to "Tools" / "Plug-Ins" and click on "Check To see If Plugins Are Up To Date" it goes to Mozilla Check Your Plugin Page, but fails to show plugins or checked plugins update status. ( https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_campaign=plugincheck-update ) I am using OS X 10.10.3 / Firefox 37.0.1 / March-14-2015
Tried, re-installing over original, clearing cookies, clearing cache and starting in Safe Mode to no avail. Another ridiculous oversight and there's never any support for when things do go awry. Unfortunately, I have received no professional concern, with a competent cause and cure. none. And I have had and reported this problem since Firefox 35.0.
Need info and a fix, for Months Now! Thanks! Whitebuck

I do not know what is the impact of a "user agent". I do know if I choose the iPhone user agent on my Macbook, it means I can do things that website owners/designers were trying to limit to iPhone e.g. read full version of magazines for free. So I guess a user-agent somehow tells the website owner/designer "our device" we are in someway.
But does a user-agent do anything else technically to the browser? e.g.
>Does User-Agent control if a user-script that requires xx can use xx (where xx = https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.3/jquery.min.js). I can run this userscript successfully using GreaseMonkey in Fx but it fails to run in Fluid App. Fluid has userscripts embedded into the app, no plug-in is required.
>Does User-Agent control how low I can zoom. Current zoom level is restricted to 50% with below user agent. Most unhelpful.
I am wondering this as I started to play around with the purchased app, Fluid. Fluid converts a SSB (Single Site Browser) -- aka many apps that are now pure web browser but really are an app), into a quasi-app, so it can sit on your dock, use OSX notifications, use trays/split window panels etc..) Fluid is no where near as powerful as Fx, but it does have integration to OSX notifications which at the moment I cannot find an add-on that enables this via the webkit. Several add-ons are now using OSX notifications so I know it must be possible (e.g. download helper).
The latest version of Fluid is 1.8.3, which I recently purchased. By default I opened user agent and it shows this:
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_10_3) AppleWebKit/0600.5.17 (KHTML, like Gecko) FluidApp Version/1955 Safari/0600.5.17
No idea what this user-agent is really telling me. I am on OSX yosemite 10.10.3, I use the latest FX (38 recently upgraded this week) and I do not use Safari.
Thankyou for your help.

Previously when I clicked on the lendle bookmarklet fx would navigate me to a new tab and open the appropriate lendle page. I liked that. Now fx opens the lendle page in the same tab. How do I force it to open in new tab?
- I have the add-on open all bookmarks in new tab.
- It worked before I installed TMP (Tab Mix Plus) add-on and it opened in a new page too with TMP installed. I have now removed the TMP add-on due to a big performance hit of this add-on. TMP is a cpu and memory hog.
- lendle bookmarklet has this code under bookmark properties
- I checked my config settings per answer on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1060711. My config setting is:
browser.link.open_newwindow.override.external -1 browser.link.open_newwindow 3
There is this pref to override the behavior of opening a link in an external application.
If this pref has the default value -1 then browser.link.open_newwindow is used.
The meaning of the value of the browser.link.open_newwindow.override.external is the same as of browser.link.open_newwindow
1:current tab; 2:new window; 3:new tab;
