I get ugly and sometimes unreadable text. Images have the same kind or error, the anomaly seems like loss of vertical detail in web pages, but it's clearly not just that. http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/2066/mozillafirefoxbuild2013.jpg http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/6729/picasa3912013125242bmp.jpg To me, the issue seems to be with ClearType or more accurately, how Firefox deals with it, as no other program has this kind of problems. These are not related to my persona. I have no issues with text in menus or the program windows, but they do render a bit darker than in other programs.

Attempting to install the "missing plug-in" using the Firefox prompts results in Java 7 Update 10 being installed, re-installing it is successful and does not resolve the issue, Firefox 18 refuses to allow/display java content even with the proper updated version of Java installed.

This problem ONLY occurred immediately following this mornings update to Firefox 18.0.

When you go to make a new bookmark, the "Page Bookmarked" dialog screen appears. It shows the folder that the bookmark will be placed into - by default, the top-level folder, usually "Bookmarks Menu". It used to be the case (at least up to version 12) than if you expand this, it will default to the last used folder within your bookmarks. It doesn't do that anymore - it stays "Bookmarks Menu" and I have to scroll all the way down and look forthe folder I want to use... Any way to fix this? I don't want to keep scrolling when I need to place several bookmarks into the same folder. Maybe through about:config? Thanks in advance.

While running FF for a while it starts to jump between different tabs that I have open without clicking on anything. Also it will sometimes appear that another copy of same tab I have open is trying to open again on top of page. The address bar that appears at the bottom of page while loading will appear one on top of another and the page will skip up and down about an 1/8th of inch. Exiting out of and then restarting FF will not solve the problem. I have to reboot the computer and restart FF for it to quit.

I've shifted to Chrome and it does not do this but i prefer the FF browser if I can get this issue fixed.

I am prompted every time i visit a site that i enter a password on to save it in firefox 18, it's now getting annoying. I have tried to turn it off, but the box in firefox settings is shaded and won't allow me to turn password manager off, i know i can choose "never for this site" in the settings but with just about every site you go to now requires you to sign in it is really getting on my nerves. if this can't be resolved i may reluctantly have to change browser.

In this article: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/CSS/Using_CSS_flexible_boxes The authors state that I can enable flexible box support in FF 18.0 through the 'about:config' screen. I just did it but 'display: flex' still doesn't work (and works fine in Chrome).

Is the notation different? Am I doing anything wrong?

I am a regular user of the Kunena-based forum at lwks.com. Kunena is a Joomla extension. I have been using this forum using Firefox for the past two years without problem. After updating to FF18.0 yesterday, I now find that I cannot insert images or other files into forum posts. When I click on the Add File button and select a file (e.g. jpg) the path to the file on my desktop no longer appears in the Add file box and the Insert button is missing so I am unable to insert the file as an attachment to the forum post.

Hi everyone I'm Nahuel from Argentina. My (random) problem started 2 or 3 week ago when I have Firefox 17.0.1 (actually I updated to Firefox 18 but it's the same). At any moment Firefox crash and close, even in safe mode, but there isn't a way to reproduce it. The problem can appear when I open Firefox, while I'm reading some news, when I'm checking my mail, so on. I restore and (later) reinstall Firefox but the problem still. Maybe reinstall Windows 7 can solve my problem, but I haven't time to do this right now.

Here is the link to my crash report: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/6621f000-a722-48d8-884c-35a482130110

PD : I do the best I can, but I know my english is bad sorry.

I'm using Firefox 18.0 and Windows 7. Google Contacts loads my contacts, however, I'm unable to open and edit any individual contacts. Similarly, when I click on the Groups, More, try to go to the next page of contacts, change my settings (gear icon) or change what group I'm viewing, nothing happens. I am able to scroll through the page of contacts displayed, it works when I click on the "all or none" icon next to the group icon and works when I click on New Group and Import Contacts on the lower left of the screen. I have cleared the Cached Web Content and deleted relevant cookies. When opening Google Contacts on this computer in Internet Explorer or on my other computers using Firefox R 18.0 it works fine. Any suggestions are really appreciated.

Since we are using mandatory profiles for all users, after firefox gets updated the user is forced to see "Hooray! Your Firefox is up to date." message every time the log in and start the browser. It is not easy or possible to update user profiles each time the firefox gets updated. Besides lately it happens very often. Where can I globally in server side disable this annoying message? Or at least how can I manually edit preferences file stored in the mandatory profile folder to disable this annoying message?
