Issue

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

OK, we're all about Open Source. We're about non-profit.

Why then are we posting on Twitter and Facebook? I know Facebook is pretty big and "down with the kids" but Twitter is just hype; and commercial at that.

It's sending the WRONG message. Come on Mozilla, let's use a completely OPEN solution to micro-blogging and show the world that we support OPEN developers.


This happened

Not sure how often

I opened the Mozilla page

Recently sycronized Firefox to Propel Dial Up Accelerator and now Firefox will not allow www.yahoo.com to load as my homepage even though yahoo.com is properly set as the homepage and we had no problems before.

We recently moved from to an area where we can only get dial up. We purchased Propel Dial Up Accelerator and synchronized it with Firefox. Now Firefox fails to display our yahoo home page as it always did before. Once the page is finished loading we get just a blank page even though yahoo.com shows in the address bar. We cannot get to yahoo.com by any means. We have had to bookmark yahoo news page as only way to get any part of yahoo. We can access our email by going to mail.yahoo.com and signing in there. We have lost all access to our yahoo home page

URL of affected sites

http://www.yahoo.com/

I just started using Firefox a day or two ago. I didn't notice a problem with his browser while on Facebook until I attempted to change my profile pic. Now I can't even download a profile photo and none of the profile photos appear when I log on to Facebook.

It can't be a problem with my Security or Account Settings on FB because I share this PC with someone else in my household and they are having the same problem with their FB account.

Thanks.

Firefox 9.0.1 freezes on a frequent basis when I use tabbed browsing. I click and drag links to the toolbar (as a new tab) and it freezes when I try to release it. Firefox becomes unresponsive at this point. If I wait, it can take, anywhere from 10 seconds to much longer for Firefox to return to a usable state. This problem happens frequently enough that it has become a nuisance. I have noticed this problem on both Windows 7 and 8 (64 bit). Is there a fix?

I don't know what's going no. For no reason at all, out of the blue Firefox will have tabs about double the size, vertically (height) after a simple restart. No config changes or new add-ons.

Even tried safe mode with add-ons disabled and toolbar reset to default, same problem. Was fine before the restart. All I did was run CCleaner.

Running FF10 on Windows 8 CP 64 bit.

I have a lenovo Thinkpad Convertible tablet. In the past I've been able to get it were the Windows TIP pops up when I click on a text input field. This function no longer works, I have a new computer, and whatever change I'd done to my old computer is not readily apparent. Any help in getting text input fields to pop up the TIP automatically would be great. Until then, in tablet mode, I have to use my computer with IE or keep the TIP at the taskbar to click on, but that's a lot of movement and rather annoying.
