www.dallastown.net school web site no longer loading images/info correctly. Works ok with IE.

Can maneuver around some by right clicking and opening in new tab. "Select a School" drop down is a specific problem area. Some times numerous clicks of the mouse will open the page properly. Still run in to problems with no response from a click or missing info.

A number of updates occurred recently, not sure where problem is. I currently have Java disabled, but tried with it enabled and no help. Uninstalled & reinstalled FireFox (18), no help. Thinking maybe a problem with FF 18 and Adobe Flash, but not sure what to do.

I appreciate any help you may offer.

After the last update FireFox started to continuously eat a whole CPU on my 2-core laptop. My usage pattern (regarding browsed sites and/or activated plugins) has not changed, but I must confess that I'm a heavy user of plugins.

I suspect the problem may arise from a changed performance behaviour of a plugin due to the new JS engine of FF18, but how can I easily trace this problem further down. I.e. is there a way to inspect the collected performance data of firefox (activated)?

Firefox does not paint the window if Windows 7 Basic theme is selected and Fujitsu USB port replicator PR07 is used

If I use "Windows 7 Basic" theme on my laptop (Fujitsu Lifebook A532), the Firefox window is not painted. I see only the border of the window, the content not. As soon as I switch back to the "Windows 7" theme, it works again. It could be related to the graphics driver (from Intel) of my new laptop. Before I had a desktop computer, and did not have this problem.

Update: the problem occurs only if I use my port replicator (Fujitsu USB Port Replicator PR07). If I unplug the replicator, and use only the monitor of my laptop, everything is fine.

I have Firefox 18. I have the latest Adobe Flash installed (after doing a full uninstall and reinstall). I have cleared the cache, cookies, etc.

No matter what I try, YouTube videos will not play in Firefox. I always get the same message:

"An error occurred. Please try again later."

If I copy the exact same link into Explorer (which I normally detest using) it plays perfectly. So clearly the fault lies with Firefox.

What can be done to fix this bug?

When I running/browsing internet on Firefox. I can't safely eject my flash drives. each time, I get this:

"Problem Ejecting USB Mass Storage Device- This devise is currently in use. Close any programs or windows that might be using the device, and try again."

The flash drives aren't being used much of the time, except for when I save something to them. Nothing is using them and all saves and other stuff are completed, but I can't safely eject them when Firefox is running. I have to close Firefox to safely eject them. I can in safe mode, however. Is a weird glitch or something else going on with Firefox?

I am using Mozilla Firefox 18.0. on a Windows 7 computer. The Mozilla page is really inefficiently set up. I have a screen shot but there doesn't seem to be any way to post it in this forum. [From help:You now have a screenshot that you can add to your forum question by clicking the Browse button in the Post a Reply box. However, no 'browse' button on this page. :-(] I will describe, line-by-line, what I see on my screen for this page:

[Mozilla logo]Ask a Question|Mozilla Support-Mozilla Firefox File Edit View History Bookmarks Tool Help [A line with the current URL on the left side and a search bar on the right side] A blank blue line [Headings for each of the tabs I currently have open]

I don't need the first line or the fourth line. How do I remove them? If you know how to add a screen shot, let me know.

After updating to v18, I have the following interface problems:

1. Ctrl+Shift+T no longer re-opens closed tabs

2. When I open a new window (startup or ctrl+n), the top bar looks like this (https://www.dropbox.com/s/52ngu7d5l4l0nuy/whatswrong.png), but it's supposed to look like this (https://www.dropbox.com/s/z4tx0cxeq2va6f9/whatitshouldbe.png). I can temporarily fix this for each window by showing the menu bar and then hiding it again (I usually keep it hidden).

3. All "Add To Firefox" buttons (themes, add-ons, etc) do nothing when I click them.

4. I can't toggle "Tabs on Top." It's stuck on the checked state.

5. When I switch from one tab to another, the old tab's url is in the new tab's navigation bar. For example, if I close google.com, it will still say "google.com" in the navigation bar even though I'm looking at the firefox site.

basically any time I open up one of the windows at the top of my firefox, such as "bookmarks", the real firefox window where my browsing is is duplicated into my bookmarks menu. This only started happening immediately after installing version 18.0. I tried updating my graphics plug-ins, as well as un-installing all previous firefox versions, including the current one, and re-istalled. None f this fixed the problem. I've included an image of this happening on my browser http://tinypic.com/r/28p2l2/6

I love my bookmarklets, but when i upgraded to Firefox 18 I lost the ability to use them!

i drop the bookmarklet, and it won't stick. Three of the bookmarklets are: Pocket, Pinterest and Share as Image. Yes, I know Pocket and Pinterest are available as add-ons, but I don't like the way they work.

I've dragged them to every possible location in the bookmark toolbar, menu toolbar and add-on toolbar. I tried putting in a space and flexible space widget in the bookmark toolbar, to see if that would help. Nope.

Anybody know a solution? Thanks for reading.
