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.

Almost daily when I close firefox 37.0.2 either by clicking white X in red block upper right or by going to file exit I get a crash report? I have been answering the reports and sending them in.

It displays like this,

http://eaaforums.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=3825&d=1398908191

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.

What happened to the Location bar in 37.xx

Now I have that long, long Search bar. With the Location bar I could see the link of the site I was on. I could also sent that link to someone if I wanted to.

With every upgrade, things get more complicated.

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

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.

There are several sites, on what seems to be an ever growing list, on multiple computers using Firefox ranging from versions 37.0.2 to the latest version that are getting a "Connection reset". (The different versions were used as part of the tests to find if the problem was related to a specific version of Firefox)

I initially thought the problem was related solely to the http vs https access but, whilst trying to access this support site, I found that both the http and https variants returned the same error.

http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewforum.php?f=38

For example, if I go to http://www.staticice.com.au I will get a Connection reset error. If I go to https://www.staticice.com.au the site loads and works fine. The same for http://www.dvdfab.cn and https://www.dvdfab.cn.

What is even more interesting (at least to me), is that if I connect via my VPN, the http variant will load and work fine.

I've worked though the solutions described in the below post but they have not resolved the issue for me.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1056868

There is nothing in my Windows firewall that I've added. I've tried with an empty hosts file, and I've even uninstalled and reinstalled firefox.

I've deleted it from the file location several times. The only solution I have found is to stop the process in task manager but that is a pain and has to be repeated several times within minutes of each other. How do I safely get rid of this forever without it somehow being added again. Thank You

I am a long-time enthusiastic Cleeki add-on user, but after the most recent upgrade (WIN 8.1 x64) of Firefox 37.0.2 to 38.0.1 the horizontal channelbar of Cleeki has dissappeared. It used to automatically show up on text selection, and present all its usefull functions. When text is selected and the right mouse button is clicked, the context menu item "Cleeki - Firefox accelerators" is still there and can be used though. Functionality is still ok, but invoking has become tedious. I had to restore a previous disk image backup of my entire system. Help! TIA for looking into this...

When visiting www.cheathappens.com I am forced to log in every time, which it has never been that way. Then upon log in, every time l click a link on the site I am logged out. The admins of this site say that something is blocking their cookies. I am set up to receive cookies, and have tried totally removing AdBlock Plus, and still no luck. Some users told me they use AdBlock Plus and are not having this issue, as was the case for myself up until about the last couple of months. Any ideas?
