I have already tried adding a boolean named "services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.uiCustomization.state" and set it as "true" according to this answer (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1022917). But it doesn't help with anything... Is there some way to tell my Firefox to sync my customized interface (such as "do not show menu bar" and "do not show search bar" ? Waiting for your help. Thanks. P.S.: It will be better if you can answer this question in Simplified Chinese!

A WordPress Widget is not working on my blog. It pulls related info from a web site where I have additional posts. This widget was working before the upgrade to 31. It works fine with no issues in IE.

Here's a link to the site in question: http://www.clickclackding.com/blog/ On the right-hand side you'll see a "|" under the heading "My Collection," instead of content which would be visible in IE.

Firefox 37.0.1 crashes PC (white-screen and blue-screen)

I use Firefox on Windows 7 32bit and I updated on version 37.0.1 immediately after its release.

Yesterday, after using Firefox some time, my whole screen got white, not only the Firefox window but also the Windows Taskbar. The computer was obviously frozen, I couldn't do anything to make the PC react (I tried [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Del]). I cut off the power and restartet the computer. After some hours (I watched a movie with VLC media player, no problems there), I used Firefox again. The screen flickered every then and now (about once every minute), scrolling wasn't smooth. I finally got a blue-screen caused by some timeout-error with the graphic card driver.

My graphic card is AMD Radeon HD 5670. I updated the driver via AMD auto-detect tool and my newly installed driver version now is 14.501.1003-141120a-177997C.

Yeah, problem solved - I thought. After using Firefox today again, I got the same white screen again. I cut off the power again, started the computer again, opened Firefox and went to the same website. At the very same point on that website, I got the same white-screen again, although in the background color of that site instead of white. So it's reproducible.

The website is: https://www.douglas.de/douglas/fragrancefinder/index.html (website in German, white-screen occured after using the JavaScript-applet). However, this is not the same website that caused the crash yesterday.

The problem occurs with both OMTC enabled and disabled. If you need further information, let me know.

I appreciate you reading this. Sorry for my English, it's not that good...

Edit: I did a litte work-around. I downloaded and installed Opera and it turned out that the same problem (white-screen and total PC crash) occurs in Opera as well as in Firefox when using the very same JavaScript applet. I disabled hardware acceleration in Firefox...

Last week I downloaded Firefox and was able to use it. Apparently Firefox is best for my university work.

After using Firefox, I turned off the computer and when I used the computer in the morning I went to Safari as usual because all my bookmarks, etc are there.

Today I cannot find Firefox, no icon, no file, searching the computer did not show it.

I would like to be able to use Firefox as I used it on my PC a couple of years ago and enjoyed it, but the download was not quick, and I really don't want to have to start over whenever I want to use it.

IThank you in advance for any help provided.

Typing within my gmail has been painfully slow for the last few days, with it sometimes taking up to 10 seconds for what has been typed to appear. Initially I thought it maybe a virus affecting the whole computer, however having checked typind speed in Word documents, then my Gmail on Chrome it would seem this issue is localised to just when I use my gmail within Firefox. The typind speed of this message is perfectly fine!!!

I would welcome any advice on how to fix this, as Gmail is a huge part of my life and Firefox is very much my preferred browser.

Phil.
