Every time I go to Yahoo.com and try to sign into my mail accounts, I get the Recaptcha. It may ask me to click on all cars in the pictures. When I do that I notice the "Continue" button is superimposed on the pictures of the cars and then when I try to click on the "Continue" button, I get a circle with a diagonal slash mark through it. Yahoo won't help me with this until I pay money. This problem started when their pay for phone tech program started. Please help!

I am a computer dummy. Firefox is installed in our Windows 8 computer as our browser. Whenever we use it, a very annoying thing called Default Fire Fox Developer tools comes up at the bottom and takes up half our screen. Sometime it lets me hit esc. to close it but then it just pops back up. We use our computer for the net, e mail and social media alongside learning sites for our kids. How can I get rid of this thing? Please help me and explain it like I am 6 .

Firefox 29.0 default has tabs same colour as bar above it (not distinction), how do I get back to the what was in 28.0 where they were different colours?

Just updated to Firefox 29.0 and the tabs not currently viewed are now the same colour as the background above them at the top. File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, Help are distinguished in a different colour though. I've checked but found this is the default theme. But it wasn't in 28.0, the tabs have always been a different colour to distinguish them. How do I tell Firefox to make the tabs a different colour to that above them? It's very annoying/disconcerting and just looks pretty awful. Not had this problem with updates changing the default colours before. Would have thought it's a no brainer for the default to have the tabs a different colour to distinguish them. Don't want to muck about with other themes, just want it like the default use to be. Thanks.

I'm having some trouble with javascript menus (or what I believe are javascript menus). Whether it matters or not I am not sure, but it happens in both Firefox and Chrome...IE works fine.

Examples of sites with menus that don't work:

1. Orbitz.com: Can't pull down the "Adult" or "Child" menus. 2. toyota.com: Can't "select vehicle" at the top of the page.

I get no error messages. I have started Firefox in safe mode, I have also reset Firefox.

I use Gmail and occasionally receive emails which contain embedded images rather than attachments. These images do not appear when I use Gmail from Firefox, but they do appear when I use Gmail from Chrome or IE. If I forward the mail then the images appear in the forward mail window. Have tried all of the recommended actions but with no success.

http://start.search.us.com/v/2/?guid={57D051C3-199E-4DE4-9AC7-5694B9254CC9}&serpv=5

When I open Firefox it reverts to the above linked search engine.

That link is to the search engine that has infected my firefox. I have tried several methods to get rid of it. I have gone into extensions and deleted anything that looked like it. I have gone into 'uninstall programs' and un-installed anything that was to do with it. I have ran my Norton 360 scan which has detected nothing. I downloaded Malware Bytes free anti-malware software scanner which detected nothing. I have reset the home page to default but this does nothing. I have tried re setting firefox, no result. Please can you help me remove this search engine off firefox, nothing seems to work and it is very irritating. Thanks

this has been going on for a while and i am considering the previously unthinkable and switching to Chrome, i don't want to but waiting five minutes for firefox to open is getting on my last never. the thing is, it only is this slow the first time. after that it is fast as usual. i have tried disabling all addons and plug ins, nothing works. as i said, it only does this when i try to open it up first thing in the morning after booting up the computer. i have a fast computer too, an intel i7 3770 processor and 16 gigs of ram so that is not an issue. i am running windows 8 by the way. i click on the firefox icon and it does nothing for at least a few minutes, then opens. very frustrating. also, i have disabled prefetch as well, no good. attached are screenshots of my addons and plug ins. yes, i have uninstalled it completely and reinstalled, no luck.

Firefox has been my browser of choice for about 6 years. On 3/16 /15 it stopped working. I tried all of the suggestions. I then completely uninstalled Firefox and Mozilla Maintenance. I restarted and checked my disks and memory. All other browsers: IE, Safari, Chrome & Opera work fine. I installed from Firefox Setup 36.0.3.exe this morning. Same problem. Works for about 5 minutes and then hangs.

I run three websites. One is personal (www.rossolson.org) and two are for non-profit organizations (www.outpostministries.org and www.tccsa.tc). All have site search through Google, my own site is paid to be ad-free, the non profits are free and without adds because of their non profit status. For a while now, site search does not work with Firefox for the non profit sites but does for the paid site. Chrome and IE work fine. Is there a solution? Some setting to activate? Is this Google's doing?

The Tab on my browser is double sized under Windows 8. I have already searched the forums for a solution and none worked.

Already tried: 1. Safe mode 2. Create new Profile 3. Reinstalled with NO extensions 4. Cleaned out everything entry in appdata/programdata/registry

After everything double sized tab persists.

So I am led to believe that this is some new setting for Firefox where it detects an unknown 'Tablet' mode and sets the default theme as having double sized tabs. -- And just FYI -- I am NOT using a touchscreen. So whatever it is detecting, it is faulty. If you are going to put this in as an option, please add an option to DISABLE it.

When I change to another theme, such as Mx3, it does fix the double sized.

For the past few days Firefox browser videos requiring Flash player do not open but give me the 'crash screen'. It works fine with Internet Explorer because it is built in. I have tried all of the recommended fixes from adobe and and firefox.

I have refreshed Firefox
I have enabled in firefox
I have disabled all plugins and extensions then tried enabling Flash Player
I have uninstalled and reinstalled Flash player a few times
I have tried adjusting Flash player settings
    " deleting FPs cache, etc.

I have not been able to adjust FPs "hardware acceleration" because it won't open in the support pages.

I have: a newer toshiba Satellite L70 (intel i7)

64bit

I am stumped!

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the current (as of 6/22/13) flash plugin for Firefox. I also have turned off hardware acceleration but my flash player keeps crashing on every youtube video I try.

Crash reports With Hardware Acceleration: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/929ae2cc-b007-4dee-900f-a66fc2130623

Without: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/ca2d2983-77b4-4ccf-a271-9e48c2130623

Also Firefox just stopped responding when I allowed the troubleshooter, but it did give information after restoring my previous session.

I've tried various methods of sorting tags. None of them really represents the conventional output one would consider "sorting". I've had to, for example, prefix categories of tags in order to get some semblance of order. Lately not even this works very well after going through various updates to Firefox.

Further, there doesn't seem to be anything on the Mozilla website for Firefox that addresses this question. Perhaps my library of Bookmarks is more extensive than most, and those who program the interface have never seen a need to provide this capability to sort tags. In my case, since I've used tags to introduce order and fast access to information, tags have become indispensable to that end.

Maybe the reason this capability is missing is because it is not technically feasible. I would like to know whether or not it is so I don't continue to search for a solution.

When FF23 upgraded to FF24 the default theme was broken

I usually have white text on black background set for Win8 high contrast theme. It worked fine in FF23

Now the default theme in FF24 is white with white text and the toolbar buttons have black surrounds on white toolbars. The sidebar is unreadable. The toolbar buttons themeselves are OK displaying as pale icons on black.

I have tried to fix by ticking use system colours - no change. Unticked no change.

Safe mode - no change.

Unticked/ticked harware accellaration - no change

I have tried re-installing, plus upgrading for FF25 beta then backdown to FF24.

Hope you can help.
