The # is not my # to send my security code to. You have the wrong number on file & I need access to my account. How do I get you to input the right number or can I edit my profile in some way and change the telephone number so you can either issue a new security code, or determine what my existing code is. I don't seem to have a 7 digit number on file anywhere.

Thanks,

George Sedlack

I have Firefox 30.0. My new tab was just Google, now it is nine different web pages which probably represent my most used webpages. I don't like this setup. I just want Google each time I start a new tab.

I would also like to stop this page from being hijacked so regularly. It is incredibly annoying. How can I stop changes being made without my permission?

I've had about 5 different pages as my new page in the last two weeks. I've removed some programs from my computer, but it's still happening.

I tried to do the about:config thing, but the page that shows up (browser.newtab.url) says that it is the default of about:newtab

Can anyone please help.

All the Firefox Version after v3.6 are stupid, and you have removed useful things like disable javascript, charakter encoding. The gui design is horrible and everything is hidden or removed, rounded and win8-crap like.

You thinks that javascript is useful? yes it would be useful if all the stupid scripts are disabled and dont slow your machine with adds, big content, tons of js includes, html5 scrolling blending etc.

this is bullshit, the internet moves more and more to a movieshow. You made the internet to a horrible place. with stupid browser for stupid people. Firefox was always a great alternate. But now is overloaded crap like the others.

I am having an issue with an add-on that is fixed in version 5.5.2:

https://addons.mozilla.org/ro/firefox/addon/complete-youtube-saver/versions/

However, when I go to download it, I find that it is not there. The developer has stated that it has been removed by Mozilla:

https://addons.mozilla.org/ro/firefox/addon/complete-youtube-saver/reviews/616168/

I depend on this add-on, and I want very hard to believe this removal was in error. If it is not, then it is extremely anti-user.

Please restore it:

Work windows laptop - latest firefox 30.0

Home MAC (Mavericks) laptop - latest firefox 30.0

On my work laptop I'm signed into my account with email@address.com (as an example). All check boxes ticked under the "Sync my" section (so everything is to be synced).

On my home MAC laptop - under preferences and sync i'm signed into the same email@address.com mail address with again, all tick boxes ticked to sync everything.

NOTHING is syncing.

This used to work flawlessly when using the old passcode method to link devcies, but can't seem to use this any longer.

On my work laptop I have tried to go into "Manage Account" and "Reset Sync" and then selecting "Replace all other devices with this device's data" but this makes no difference trying to sync the data to my home MAC laptop.

Last couple of years it seems like FF is updated every other week, or two, forcing everybody, users and developers, to recode their plugins and users to find new ways to have their little thingies done. Some things that were easy last year are a f*ckin pain now, if not impossible, and some take hours or even days to figure out how to have your normal settings back.

Not only that: complete WEBSITES that worked fine in previous versions are a pain, some/most forced me and my gf to go back using bl00dy Internet Explorer again, ffs! Won't mention the safety issues!

I'm FED UP with this and I'm sure lots of others are too!

Percentage of FF users in my country has dropped from 50%+ to about ten%, mhmmm I wonder why?

Jscher2000 Reply: One other thought: check your preference for how to handle PDF files to see whether it has changed. By default, Firefox will use its built-in viewer, but since it isn't as full-featured as Adobe's viewer, many users will switch back to Acrobat. In case your preference is set to Save rather than view in either of those, check this article for steps to change this setting: How to disable the built-in PDF viewer and use another viewer (but you can change it to whatever you like).

Questions: Where do I find the "How to disable the built-in PDF..." article referred to clicked on blue and didn't link to anything. Also will this make so the print will just view so can print it. I don't want it to go to download. How do I check my preferences to see if set up as save? Thank you.

I got 2 replies for my problem. One was too technical. The other option, disabling No Script and AdBlock, doesn't work. I did come across a new option which was to type "about:config" in the address bar, and eventually found that javascript is marked as true.

Something else that might be helpful to the person reading this: Another help page says to go to Options, then Content, check off Enable Javascript. My Content page doesn't show that. I have Firefox 30.0
