I just updated all the way from Firefox v. 6 to v. 22. So far everything seems good, but I miss my colored icons (they're now all grey & black). Small problem, but just wondered if there was a way to 'color' them? Thank You

I was at a mainstream website, when I tried to post an article from that website to my facebook page. I got a popup that told me my version of firefox was out of date and directed me to click their button to update. I NEVER do this. I followed proceedure by clicking myfirefox button, then the help, then about firefox. I learned that I had the latest version and decided to try to warn you about this potential problem for any who click that button. You really shouldn't make it so hard for a user to report a threat like this. It may save you time and effort if you learn about threats quicker.

I have correctly set the instruction to save pinned tabs and windows when Firefox opens.

However, I would like only the tabs to open, not all the windows.

PROBLEM -- when I open a new window from a bookmark, it overwrites the pinned tab.

The new web pages that are not open should open next to the pinned tab, not overwrite it.

Thanks for your help.

When ever I click on a link, it always opens a new tab. I do not want this unless I specify it. I have tried changing the settings in tabs, but it continues. It is very annoying when I am trying to do something and continually have to close all the extra tabs I do not want.

I have tried every combination of settings possible and still it opens each and every thing I click on in a new tab. I DO NOT LIKE THIS. How to I stop it?? Nothing in your "help" files says anything useful

I don't know why this has happened but ever since my Firefox upgraded all YouTube videos have been playing super low quality by default. When I first installed Firefox months ago this wasn't a problem. Everything played HD by default. But every time Firefox upgrades itself the videos go down in quality. And especially since the OS upgrade everything is playing super low quality by default. How do I get them to just play HD by default again?

Thanks so much for your time and help!

Hi! I tried to ask this before but I found no solution. I removed old cookies as instructed but it did not solve the problem.

My problem is that all of my Videos are defaulting to low res. If manually set HD will play, BUT HD takes FOREVER to load and will often freeze when playing. This never happened when I first installed Firefox either last year. HD played easily and smoothly.

I use Adobe Flash player to view YouTube videos.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

What I want to know is why Mozilla would, in effect, make it's latest "upgrade " amount to a downgrade...at least for me...and here is the reason- I downloaded Firefox 22 & now the add-on Easy Youtube Downloader is not compatible. For me this add-on is ESSENTIAL. what i had to do was go back to Firefox 21 & I also know of at least 10 other people who did this for the same reason. What i want to know is if & when this add-on will be available with upgrade versions of Firefox. I prefer Firefox over any other browser & would HATE to have to switch because I have been using it for many years. How can I directly contact MF & have them email me or let me know whether this add-on will be available or does anyone have contacts at MF who can let me know? Also still irritated that Google Tool Bar is not compatible & has not been for over a year...come on MF...you are gonna lose customers!

I have Firefox 22.0 installed, I recently did a reset and now have lost the ability I had to click on the homepage button and automatically launch the Homepage in a new tab? I like this option since when I click on my homepage it doesn't override my current page. I know you can configure new tabs to open the homepage automatically ; and that you can use the Ctr+Homepage Button to open the home page in a new tab. However I would like to know what setting I can add/change to restore this missing feature.

Thanks

Version 22 has numerous defects. I wonder how this happened since it has ALWAYS been so dependable. Copy and paste functions won't work or are erratic. The web pages are over large and "blooming" sometimes appear "out of focus." These issues began immediately with downloading of version 22.

Will these issues be corrected?

This is true on both of my computers, one using Vista OS and the other Windows 7. If I switch to the IE OS (ugh!) these issues are NOT present.

Very experienced computer user/operator with 20 years experience.

Locking as a duplicate, please see

  1. copy & paste thread /questions/964115
  2. size & blurry thread /questions/963969

1) Copy/paste function is non-functional. 2) Web pages too large and seemingly out of focus 3) Don't want to have to start tweaking the browser

Firefox has been a wonderful partner for several years but the above issues are bogging down work to a great extent. I'm not a fickle user but I do have work that requires #1 especially. Hope there is a fix in the works because I don't know how to remedy that glitch.
