Ever since I updated firefox 2 days ago it has a problem restarting. When I close the firefox window it closes like it normally does but whenever I try to restart firefox it shows the notification that firefox is still running and I first need to shutdown the previous process before I can start a new one. At last after I manually shutdown the firefox process it will restart again.

FF 18. Menu bookmark font is impossible to read. It must be .4 size font (not FOUR but decimal point size). This is not a case of the font being too small there is some sort of bug where the menus change size. If you click alt the menus pop up and are normal but if you use the arrows to naviage the items the jump to super small size. Same thing w/the mouse but sometimes placing the cursor in a certain spot will get them ack to normal. Sometimes they'll just to some bizarre size but only unto you move the mouse.

For over a year now, I have created html files of my bookmarks in Firefox from my main PC and then copied them to my laptop version of Firefox. I thought that would just rewrite the old bookmarks, but I see now it just adds to the old bookmarks. I've tried deleting the old bookmarks one at a time but that takes forever and it will not delete large collections of bookmarks in the old bookmark menus.

    How do I delete most or all of my old bookmarks (now hundreds) on my laptop, so I can add the new bookmarks from my main PC?

Since version 15 (I believe), the Smooth Scrolling feature in Firefox makes scrolling very slow. Before that is was way way faster. Using the scroll wheel just eases down or up a page, it's smooth but terribly slow. With Smooth Scrolling disabled it's all back to normal speed (like in Windows Explorer but also in Internet Explorer where scrolling is just normal speed). Disadvantage with disabled is that of course it's all more jerky now. All drivers are up to date. Everything where I scroll is okay, normal speed. Only Firefox is way to slow with scrolling when Smooth Scrolling is enabled.

Is there a way to alter the scrolling speed with Smooth Scrolling enabled?

Web pages are taking about 60 to 120 seconds to load. I am using Firefox 18, Windows XP. I have tried resetting Firefox and starting with all add-ons and extensions disabled. (safe mode) No difference. I do not have the problem with Chrome or IE, so it's not the connection. Thanks for suggestions not found currently on support site. I have exhausted them.

Unbelievable. Firefox STILL has ZERO quickcommand for merging all open windows into a single window with multiple tabs??? How is this possible? Very slipshod of y'all. But then again, thanks for all of the other great options. Would totally appreciate this feature as an addition to your next update. Have found an "add on" that supposedly supplied this much requested and very popular command, however, all of the links take me to a mozilla add on page that claims "the requested page cannot be found"... very disappointing. If y'all know where I can get an ACTIVE link to any add on which supplies the above feature amongst its options, I'd really truly appreciate it. Otherwise, please try to do add the aforementioned in your next release. I'm on a new iMac running OSX 10.6.8

When I move the mouse over anything on the screen it flickers. When I move it across a hyperlink it flickers from an arrow to a hand. This flickering is so quick and constant that it has become an annoyance and is enough to drive me back to using Safari full time. I cant figure out how to stop this. I have deleted and reinstalled a fresh copy of Firefox, but that didnt help. I tried restarting with plug ins off and that didnt stop it.

2 Feb 2013 Concerns: Firefox 18.0.1 often freezes, at random times, since about 31 Jan 2013 I am using Mozilla Firefox 18.0.1, Windows Vista, PC, Desktop. My Mozilla Firefox freezes since about 31 Jan 2013 at random times quite often, when I do see TV or videos, also with YouTube videos. It freezes especially when I do start TV or a Video, sometimes also it freezes when the video is running for some time. I do use Firefox mostly only for TV and videos, so else I do not see. Some days earlier (26 January 2013), I had installed the upgrade of the new Norton Internet Security 2013. The two Norton add-ons on for Firefox, I have both deactivated. I can get out of the freezing, when I do click to end the Internet connection. After I have waited for about 5 seconds, the Mozilla Firefox browser can be moved again with the cursor. After I click to close the Firefox, and wait for about 5 seconds, the freezing also does end. I did do two Windows restores, one to 1 week ago and the next to 2 weeks ago. After the restore, when I started Mozilla Firefox, it was at first Firefox 17. But to my very bad luck, Firefox started immediately to update to Firefox 18.0.1 I had seen this updating on Help – About Firefox. There were good times, when people could choose themselves which version of Firefox they wanted. After the restore, I had also downloaded the latest Adobe Flashplayer version (about version 11.5), but the freezes have remained the same. Is there a possility to prevent the automatic update of Firefox? So that I could choose which version of Firefox, I do want. When there is a serious bug in Firefox, I could nevertheless use Firefox instead of changing to the Internet Explorer. I know I myself am responsible to prevent hackers from entering my computer. I have read that 80% of users in Germany do not have any Internet Security against hackers at all. My Internet Explorer until now does not freeze.

When typing in a text box if I accidentally type a space (or two spaces) I cannot use the backspace key to correct it because it wants to send me back to the previous page instead. I would like to disable the backspace from performing this function entirely. I don't want to utilize that keyboard shortcut but I can't find how to disable it. This keyboard shortcut did not show up until I upgraded to version 18 of Firefox.
