I can't print anymore, the "help" button doesn't work, and Firefox always sets to "Never Remember History" even if I change it

SO many issues with Firefox now! For one, it crashes quite a bit. I submit the crash report, and go from there. Keeps happening. But the main thing is this:

I go to "Options" and under "Privacy" it has "Never remember history" - I change it to "use custom settings for history", hit "ok" and then when I go back to it, it's back on "never remember history" already. What gives?

The issues I'm having right now is that I used to click on Print in my email (Yahoo) and pop-up blocker would stop it, but a dialog would pop up saying "try again", and I would hit that, and a separate window would open where I could print the email. Now, when I click on print, NOTHING happens. No box, no changes whatsoever. No pop-ups blocked, nothing at all. I mean, the button for "print" doesn't even react like I clicked on it. Nothing happens.

The other issue is that when there's a text box, if I start to type my email address, it suggests my email address. It never used to do this! I don't want this, either. How can I stop the suggesting of my email address. I don't want it to remember what I typed!

Another issue with Firefox is that when I click on the "menu" button in the top right, there's a question mark that says "open help menu" at the bottom. When I click on that, the help menu is EMPTY. I included a picture so you can see.

I've "reloaded Firefox", as well as downloaded another copy and actually reinstalled it. All these errors keep happening. How can I get them to stop or function correctly? What's causing them to work all wonky?

I'm using a laptop I haven't used in forever, but the last time I used Firefox on it, it had all my previous browser history. However, when I went on it today, it had all disappeared. I didn't delete it or anything, so I was wondering if there was any way to get it back (especially so that it will show up in my browser)? Please tell me there is.

pretty simple, I go to the addons and it curtly says.......Norton Toolbar is incompatible with Firefox 38.0.1. So I have gon3 back to firefox version37.0.2 which I was warned has SERIOUS security problems.

Firefox is starting to sound like Microsoft in its "explanations". It worked before now when I upgrade it is suddenly not compatible.

We all know that the coders made a mistake in the nwest version.....so why not fix it. I am beginning to think I may go back to Internet Explorer ......

So Firefox, when will you make Firefox compatible with the extremely popular norton toolbar, ID Vault etc.

I don't think any settings users proipose will fix this...only MOZILLA can.

My Mozilla plug-in page says my Adobe Reader needs updated. Now I have the latest version XI 11.0.08. It does not need updated but this apparently is the Acrobat version which mine is 11.0.8.4. I don't remember having problems updating before but it is asking something new now when you go to update. It was asking for my system with a lot of choices to pick from. All I have is Windows XP so the only 2 things I saw that I figured were for me would have been Windows XP SP3 or 2 (64-bit). I know I have Windows XP SP3 installed so I picked that. Then it asks for language, picked English, then it asked for version. 2 choices, either Reader 11.0.08 English for Windows or 10.1.4 English for Windows. I knew my Adobe XI was 11.0.08 so I picked that. So when I went to install it said I already had it and finished. Still plug-in says it needs updating. Was I supposed to pick 10.1.4 English for Windows instead? They never asked these questions before. So I am at a loss. Technically I have Adobe XI 11.0.08 and this new one is called Adobe Acrobat Reader DC which can work on all devices (of which I have none). So perhaps I don't need to worry about it. I don't know. Thought I'd throw this out there for anyone who could help me. Also my Avast program says my Adobe Reader does not need updated but we're talking about the actual program, not the Acrobat part which I guess is different. Same deal with my Java. Since I have XP the next update was for Version 8 but it said I could go ahead and install but it may not work now with XP. So I haven't bothered doing that and left it with Java 7 update 76. Well thanks if anyone can let me know if I picked the wrong thing or not to worry about it.

Does it display the same way for you when using FF 37.0.2 ?

IE and Chrome display it differently.

The horizontal menu should be displaying to the right of the EAA Oshkosh AirVenture logo.

Just installed Adblock Plus on both IE8 and Firefox 37 – got successful messages on both. Checked on IE8, ABP is working great. Went onto Firefox and its not working.

Went to Windows add/remove programs… found the IE version BUT the Firefox version is not present. Went back and tried to install Adblock Plus again and got the following message:

“Adblock Plus could not be installed because Firefox could not modify the needed file”

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?

WHAT CAN I DO TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM?

PS: I fully removed Firefox 36 with Revo and reinstalled version 37 – same problem.

Hi', Firefox started to crash unexpectedly after a couple of months since I first installed it. It had happen before, reason why I had to switch to Chrome. I never really tried to find out why until now. It doesn't happen at startup just randomly and unexpectedly. Tried the comon solutions of uninstalling it, reinstalling Adobe Flash player, the computer is well maintained and cleaned regularly with CClaner and Windows Security suite. Any idea what I can do to solve it> Thank you in advance!

I just recently got a new laptop, and since the minute I've installed firefox on it there has been lag when scrolling webpages. It seems to start off not too badly, with there being some stuttering when I first open firefox, however it seems like the longer I'm browsing the worse it gets, to the point where sometimes I'll start scrolling and then a second later firefox will just jump to the bottom of the page. Internet Explorer and Chrome both have perfectly smooth scrolling.

I've tried numerous things to fix it already, this is some of the stuff I can remember trying: -Turning off hardware acceleration and smooth scrolling -Starting in safe mode -Complete reinstall with new profile -Updating graphics card and intel drivers

Specs of the new laptop: Core i7 GTX 970M 16Gb RAM

Recently did a clean install of Windows 7. Installed Firefox, and text on webpages looks horrible. Here is a screenshot

http://i.imgur.com/U5R84Bc.png

I tried disabling hardware acceleration, no effect. I reinstalled the Arial font, which the web inspector says is being used, no effect. I have font smoothing turned off, and I am keeping it that way, I hate font smoothing

I know it can be fixed since I fixed it in the past without turning on font smoothing, I just can't remember how I did it.

I choose to "check for updates but let me choose when to install...". Whenever a new update comes out (or any other time it feels like it) my choice is changed and the update is made. I do not want this to happen but the browser keeps changing my settings. What is going on with FF. I use to love it but it's become a nightmare. How can I stop all these changes being made?

I use both Firefox and Chrome as my browser. Recently, Twitter has added a comment box when you Retweet a message but I only see this additional comments box when I access Twitter via Chrome. If I use Firefox I can only Retweet the original message. I have disabled all add-ons in case any of them is the cause but nothing has changed as far as Retweeting is concerned. I would like to add comments to Retweets in the final days of our election campaign, please help me stir it up.
