Using Ubuntu Firefox Version 39. Just upgraded and it has a new TILES feature which pops up when I try to do a "new tab", at which point it freezes the system. It tells me I can disable it by clicking on a symbol which at one time I was able to click on but was not able to find what it was that I should turn off. Is there some other way to turn off this blasted feature since I cannot use Firefox at all under these circumstances. Please help. Thanks (Cannot share Data since this is another computer)

На русском: Доброго времени суток! При попытке открытия сайта https://www.youtube.com/ появляется сообщение о недоверенном соединении. При этом отсутствует кнопка "Я понимаю риск". На ПК установлен антивирус Kasperky Workstation 6.0, но он отключен. Все попытки исправить ситуацию (включая предложенную информацию с сайта Firefox) были четны. Прошу помочь разобраться в проблеме. Так же хотелось бы обратить внимание, что при переходе по адресу: http://www.youtube.com/ сайт открывается нормально.


In English (sorry if something is not clear. Translated by Google Translate): Good day! When trying to open a site https://www.youtube.com/ message appears untrusted connection. This button is not "I understand the risks." On the PC installed antivirus Kasperky Workstation 6.0, but it is off. All attempts to rectify the situation (including the proposed information from the site Firefox) are even. Please help sort out the problem. Also I would like to draw your attention that the transition at: http://www.youtube.com/ site opens normally.

I have a 3 month old ASUS notebook running Win 8.1. I have been a Firefox user for many years. I downloaded firefox 36 several months ago and found I could not view streaming videos from many places such as Fox News I attempted to find out why and could not so I have been using IE. I dont like IE as much and have tried Firefox again today. I found that I can not run Firefox health report either, it just hangs with the progress circle turning. I had two add ons to Firefox loaded, ABP and Ghostery. I disabled them and get the same results. In Firefox add on manager I see a report that says that java has been disabled because it is buggy.

I have pretty much a plain jane configuration and wonder why I have issues.

After behaving faultlessly forever, suddenly with ver. 37.0.2 when I opened Firefox browser it distorted the screen so much that I had to discard it. The only time the distortion occurs is with Firefox. I have reinstalled it several times and reset it but no solution. I am now using Chrome but don't like it much. Can someone help with this Firefox problem. I can send a photo of the distorted screen as an SMS or to an email address. Local IT gurus can't explain the cause.

I've tried almost everything which is suggested here and there but nothing works. It would be nice if someone could give me a way out of this problem.

Disabling hardware acceleration also screws up font anti-aliasing

As in title.

First screenshot shows what happens with hardware acceleration enabled, which looks better, second screenshot shows how it looks aliased with acceleration disabled, with the stroke missing in certain places on very light fonts.

However, when hardware acceleration is enabled, if I open very large images or lots of inline images at a time, the browser window will flash white, all tabs will lose their favicons, and the browser must be restarted. For this reason I'm looking to keep hardware acceleration disabled, but use it (or its method) for rendering fonts only, if such a thing is possible. Alternatively I'd like a fix for hardware acceleration causing such behavior, although that seems more difficult.

Cleartype and font smoothing are both on systemwide. Disabling any of them makes the fonts even worse.

Thanks in advance.

I've had a working Firefox sync for a little while. I decided that I want to use a different email address so I delete my account from computer and continue to make a new one. When asked to verify, I go to the link and I get a page that says Firefox accounts need JavaScript. I tried opening this link in different browsers and on my phone but same error. Can't get my account verified. Maybe its not important, but my first account was just a forwarding address to what I set my new account email. I.e. my old address was <name>@<domain>.com and my address is <name>@<domain>.ch, the .com forwards to the .CH. Maybe the confuses Firefox sync? And JavaScript is definitely not disabled. I checked aboutconfig.

I noticed a few days ago that the fullscreen function no longer works for embedded YouTube videos in Mozilla. Then tonight it occurred too me to check and see if t works when you watch a video at YouTube.com. I tried several videos at random and none of them had the fullscreen function. The fullscreen button (box) is there, but when I click on it nothing happens.

I also tested videos at Hulu.com, DailyMotion.com, the Internet Archive and Veoh.com, and the fullscreen function is fine on all of those sites - it is only YouTube that seems to have a problem. I also tested the same videos in the Internet Explorer browser and they work there for all of the sites mentioned, including YouTube.com.

I hope this can be repaired, I really like the Mozilla browser and would hate to have to switch to something else.

Recently the Add to Firefox button is missing from the share menu. Since I have used other share methods it no longer appears in the 3 options at the top of the main menu and I understand that this contains the last share methods used. However, I do not see the Add to Firefox option anywhere even in the long list of all share methods after tapping the main share button. I rely on this feature a lot. Where has it gone and how do I get it back?
