Private Browsing issues: New window is a "pop-up" & Right-clicking bookmarks shows grayed-out options

When I'm in private browsing mode in Firefox 38.0.1 for Windows 8.1, I cannot do the following things.

1. When I click on a link to open a new window, that new window is like a pop-up window (no menus, no scroll-bars). But I have pop-up windows blocked, so it acts like but is not technically a pop-up window since it's not being blocked.

2. When I choose a bookmark and then right-click on it to choose another bookmark either in a new window or new tab (or any of the other options that appear), the text is grayed out so that I cannot choose it.

Are these "issues" normal for Firefox 38.0.1?

Hello,

I am running the newest update for firefox (Version 38.0.1) on Mac OS Version 10.6.8. When I open a new window in firefox, the close, maximize, and minimize buttons are located in the top left corner, as usual. However, if I enter fullscreen mode on a video, and then exit, the buttons are not there. They are not simply invisible - clicking in their usual location has no effect.

Thanks, ReOsIr

I have tried the "This Connection is Untrusted" error message appears - What to do" article for the 'issuer certificate is unknown' error which is 'The file cert8.db in your profile folder may have become corrupted. Delete this file while Firefox is closed. ' Unfortunately this did not solve my issue. So I use the Add Exception button in an attempt to have FF store a permanent exception for 'https://my.Earthlink.net'. Problem is in using the Get Certificate button does not work. FF attempts to retrieve the EL certificate but is not successful. Hence the option to Permanently Store the certificate is not available and I have to do is every time I start FF. This seems to be the only website I encounter this with. System: Win7 64 bit, Home Premium, FF 38.0.1, HP Pavilion dv7. Hopefully I have provided sufficient details for someone to assist with this.

This just started happening today and I'm not sure why. I've tried troubleshooting and nothing works. I even tried refreshing Firefox and safe mode. It still crashes and there is no crash report. I can open Youtube's main page just fine, but when I try to play a video it immediately crashes. I've tried playing around with disabling plugins and anything else I can think of, but nothing works.

This morning I tried to open a website that I use regularly to remotely wake my work PC. It has a password prompt but Firefox knows the password so I don't see that come up. This morning when I try and open the website Firefox simply closes. No crash report is generated. When I re-open I get asked if I want to start in Safe Mode or Refresh Firefox. Neither make any difference, same thing happens.

The address opens fine in Chrome and Explorer.

Whats going on!?

Hi

I use the windows On screen keyboard 95% of the time. And I like to place it generally in the middle of the window when using it. When I need to type into the search box, and even though the On screen keyboard is set to Always On Top, it always goes UNDER the dropdown search suggestions list, which blocks my ability to keep typing. I then have to stop typing and move the OSK to the right or left beyond the right or left edge of the search box, or move it to the very top of the window or very bottom out of the way of the dropdown. This then highlights the text I've already typed, forcing me to click at the end of it or start over (once I've moved the OSK out of it's way). Even if I have search suggestions turned off there is still a dropdown that blocks the OSK (the position/size/length of the search box along the top and the position of the OSK are where I like them bc of my poor vision). The address bar does the same thing. I want to know if there is a way to keep the dropdown search box UNDER the OSK while I'm typing? It's a long question I apologize, but it's a bit wordy to describe. see the photo and I'm sure you'll understand what I'm talking about. The OSK is always set to "Always On Top" in Win 7 prem.

thanks for your helpful reply mark

It load with other browsers by not with Firefox on either of my two computers or with my android.

My XP OS was loading fine this am; but after I updated my Firefox, it stopped loading. Here is my site. http://weareisrael.org/

Is it possible that the new version does not like the plugin called "jQuery Vertical Mega Menu?"

Here is a screenshot of what I am seeing on both my XP and Win 7 computers. And my android looks the same also. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/4289827/Screenshot%202015-05-15%2012.36.30.png

Using my Macbook Pro I accidentally made Ask.com my search page when I opened Firefox last week. I wanted to restore to my original opening page. Trying to delete it seemed impossible so I tried to supercede the page by reverting back to the original with an address bar in the upper left corner and a search bar (Google) in the upper right using mozilla somehow. Unfortunately Mozilla Add-ons page now opens up when I click firefox. These add-ons may be very useful in the future, but I don't to bother with them now. I'd like to now how to delete that page so it doesn't open, and restore what I had before. P.S. I got to it trying to eliminate Ask.com according to instructions....with pictures even. Hard to find for Apple.

This is looking more like a website issue rather than browser problem, but can you tell me whether there might be a Firefox setting that is affecting this behavior? When shopping for yarns online, I often open various color images in separate windows to see which look better together. I've come across a page that won't allow me to do that for many of the images -- instead, the message pops up: > You have chosen to open: > [filename].zoom.1.jpg > which is: Binary File > from: http://cdno1.yarn.com > would you like to save this file? > Cancel / Save File The page is http://www.yarn.com/webs-anniversary-sale-weaving-yarns/webs-weaving-yarns-valley-yarns-rayon-chenille/. To incur the error, I hit ctrl + enter while the cursor is on the hourglass image and then select either Open Link in New Tab (or New Window). Copying the image link and entering it into the URL bar also brings up the same error message for the affected items. I added "yarn.com" and "cdno1.yarn.com" to my list of exceptions to the popup blocker, but that didn't make a difference, nor did opening Firefox in Safe Mode.

I've recently had to erase and reinstall my laptop OS, so I've lost my preferred settings for Firefox and I'm trying to sort out and fix any unexpected behaviors. I'm currently using Mac OS X 10.6.8 and the latest version of Firefox. (I can't seem to access that information in Safe Mode, but 38.0 sounds about right.)

Any help is appreciated.

Hi - I have installed, deleted and reinstalled Adobe Flash at least 15 times. Everything goes fine. The install completes as normal. Then I go into the Firefox browser to check for the plugin and there's nothing. I have used the installer from the Adobe page and one from a link shared here in this forum from someone else having the same issue. Nothing worked. I'm on Windows. I have IE installed as well but I don't use it. I shouldn't have to switch over to IE whenever I need Flash. It defeats the purpose. Does anyone have any idea what is going on or how to fix it?

I was browsing and one of the tabs stopped working. I couldn't close it or do anything w/ it except view it. The other tabs and window seemed ok. I had quite a few pinned tabs and am using the group your tags feature. Eventually I gave up and closed the windows. (the one w/ the pinned tabs I closed last) When I opened firefox again, it opened a whole bunch of "New Tabs" and I can't restore the session since it thinks it retained the session. My guess is that the group tabs functionality is bugged, especially since it seems you can't turn it off and it won't release the session.

I am attempting to set up my default printing options by editing the about:config but firefox seems to ignore them when I call the print command

I am looking to have default behavior to just save the page to my disk as a pdf which I can do manually but for some reason but setting about:config to default to this behavior is not working

I altered the about:config file to the following I set print_printer to "Print to File" print.print_to_filename was set to "/home/username/filename" print.print_to_file was also set to true

I reset firefox after making the changes and when I attempt to print a web page it still selects my physical printer, the location and file name are ok once I select "Print to File" I just want it to actually use that as the default printing device not my office printer.

To make extra certain the settings were correct I reset the about:config values to default restarted firefox set print.save_print_settings to true restarted firefox printed a page selecting the values I wanted, printing the page to a pdf file. went back to about:config noted the values were what I wanted and set print.save_print_settings back to false, restarted firefox And it is still selecting my office printer.

If it matters the printer is an HP, would rather not uninstall it.

Hi,

I have noticed that since V37 when you are in Google Analytics the menus have a strange behaviour, when you hover on say Events or Conversions, i get like a black square for a few moments, then it goes away - i can still click on the menu and i can carry on but it definitely looks weird, as if it goes out of memory.

I have a HP DV6 Win 64-bit and ATI Radeon + Intel HD3000.

I am attaching a screen capture where you can see it - it didnt do much black now but it usually does it.

is it a bug?

many thanks, Gabrio
