I bought a new pc a couple of weeks ago, since then images won't load properly or simply won't load. Most of the time it happens with images hosted on imgur.com but happened a couple of times with other hosts too.

It seems to be a Firefox problem, because images are well displayed on Chrome & IE. Also it's odd because sometimes I cannot see an image, but if I try a few hours later I can view them perfectly.

A few examples, the originals and how I see them:

I have Java version SE7 U51 10.51.2.13 installed and working fine. Today I "upgraded" to FF 28.0. Now the Add-Ons Manager says Java is out-of-date, but when I go to the Java website, this is the very latest version available. I downloaded both the 32- and 64-bit versions anyway (though I had already installed them a month ago) and re-installed both. The FF Add-Ons Manager still has same warning: "Vulnerable- Update Now!" The Java Test page says I have the latest version, and it works.

So what the heck to do?

This is a continuation of a thread found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/997448 by Compumind.

I reported I was having the same experience, especially when opening links from emails in Thunderbird. I also reported I was forced to revert to FF 28.

Moses replied in above thread and suggested: (1) Download a fresh installer from https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/ to a convenient location. (Scroll down to your preferred language.)

(2) Exit out of Firefox.

(3) Rename the folder

C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox

to

C:\Program Files (x86)\OldFirefox

(4) Run the installer you downloaded in #1. It should automatically connect to your existing settings.

I followed these instruction carefully but no joy. Upon installing FF 29, not only would it refuse to exit (using "exit") and remain running in the Task Manager until I killed it after opening links from Thunderbird, but I found it refused to exit after simple browsing and following links.

Moses had asked I not reply in original thread so I am re-posting here.

I believe this is a serious bug. With Firefox 28...no problems except a minor one I reported here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1002089

Again I am forced back to FF 28, though I miss the beautiful interface and security fixes, I need to have a browser that works properly. My wife has never even seen the Task Manager before so this is problem.

Besides the "educated guesses" made with this post, the only other thing outside of usual that I do, is to have a security policy regarding cookies (don't accept by default...I make exceptions for cookies I want to retain and have a several that are only "allow for session.") I also have FF set to delete browsing history on exit, but that takes a split second.

I look forward to when this issue can be addressed successfully and I am able to use FF 29 (and have it exit properly...I can't expect my wife to follow all these instructions and close it often manually in the task manager...nor do I want to do this.)

Good luck on all the Mozilla projects. Having installed FF 29 twice and then reverted back to 28 twice, I am going to wait and see how this plays out. Please don't send me the standard, "start in safe mode", "restart with add-ons disabled", "reset Firefox" (last time that destroyed my browser completely) stuff. I do not believe this is what's happening.

Moses added that there is a problem with email notifications going through, so take your time, friends.

I am migrating back from Google Chrome to firefox and would like to have the browser automatically open csv files to Excel on my mac desktop. The step to have them saved in the download folder and then go in an open it in Excel adds an unnecessary action. In the earlier versions of Firefox on my windows machine this worked as desired. Any help will be appreciated.

When I right clicked on the taskbar icon, I used to get several options including a section entitled tasks. However, since about two days ago, I now only get three options of Mozilla Firefox, Unpin this program from the taskbar and close window. I don't know where the options of Open a new tab, Open a new window etc. have gone. I haven't altered any settings in about:config and have tried reinstalling firefox with no success. If there is a possible fix, please help.

Out of suddenly, all of my add-ons expect Adblock Plus disabled and I can't enable them, and I didn't change nothing on my laptop at that time. I tried to do Troubleshooting Information, restart my laptop, uninstall and install Mozilla twice, by deleting even all files about Mozilla, but nothing worked. I even tried to do a system restore, but it don't worked because it has a problem in a file! Useful info: When I install again the Mozilla and I install again the add-ons, they are enable and they are working fine, but when I close the browser and open it again, the add-ons are disabled again... And I don't know if that means something, but I have also problem to do the Windows Updates the last week, it can't complete. I have Windows 7 x64 and the lasted edition of Mozilla Firefox. Any ideas?

P.S. English isn't my first language, so sorry if I did any mistakes.

I run Firefox version 28 on a 64-bit Lenovo G700 laptop running Windows 8.1. I am trying to view videos on news sites. Most of them (ABCNews, CNN, FOXNews, NBCNews) give me no trouble, but two of them--CBSNews and PBS--won't let me view videos. (In IE11 and Chrome, PBS works, but CBS doesn't.) On PBS, I get an error message of "Plug-in file missing". On CBSNews, all I get is a black placeholder (which doesn't respond to either left- or right-clicking) where the video is to play; sometimes, I don't even get that, just white space. I've updated my plug-ins, reinstalled Shockwave Flash several times, and I've gone through my plug-ins turning them on and off, testing them as recommended; I couldn't find any plug-in that was causing trouble. All I know is that PBS uses a "JW" program to put its videos out. I've emailed CBS tech support to see if they could give me some guidance; all they do is recommend Chrome, which (as I mentioned above) doesn't work. I'm at my wits' end; has anyone else run into this kind of thing? Note: there is probably a different solution for each website, since the manifestations are different.

I was downloading LogMeIn Hamachi. I did a custom install, removed everything I didn't want, and I thought all was good.

Until I wanted to search something.

DEFAULTED TO YAHOO. I used to type something in the URL Address bar and have it redirect me to Google search, as it should. Now it goes to yahoo. Here's an example: What it used to be like: http://i.imgur.com/Lb9vrXK.png What it is now: http://i.imgur.com/kYMa3ha.png

Can anyone help me fix this? I tried: Starting Firefox in Safe mode without addons Resetting Firefox Uninstalling it from Control Panel (couldn't find it under anywhere) Am I doing something wrong, or is Yahoo forever defaulted into Firefox?

I'm running Win7 fixes up to date and Firefox 28.0

A few days ago I noticed Outlook.com did not appear to be receiving new emails. I have rebooted several times, cleared Firefox cache and new outlook emails only appear after logging in to outlook or refreshing the outlook tab in Firefox.

I spent the afternoon running tests and searching MS support and the web for a solution.

My testing. TEST 1-Sent email from gmail to my outlook account, switched to outlook.com tab and waited 30 minutes, no knew email or notification, refreshed Outlook tab and new email was there, received time was 2 minutes after sent time.

TEST 2-Logged out of Outlook on Firefox and logged into outlook.com in IE, sent email from gmail account to Outlook.com, new email was received in outlook.com in IE within seconds.

TEST 3-I left outlook.com logged in in IE and logged in to a different outlook.com address in Firefox, sent a new email from gmail to both outlook.com addresses, again the account opened in IE received the email in seconds and the outlook.com account open in Firefox did not show the new email until after refreshing the tab in Firefox .

Has anyone else seen this problem?

(For Forum Moderators: Please read /forums/forum-moderators/710264?last=59300)


Moderators, please read first before closing/removing this topic right away?
To those wanting to react here on this topic: please, also read ;)
Since my original posting https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/997009 was closed because one of the moderators felt it was going off-topic (although it was red a lot and had 131 "have-this-problem" in just a few days), here a kind of re-opening but on-topic.
Why? Because I feel we have the right to express our feelings on this major change. And publicly there is actually only this forum where that can be done on the Mozilla.org domain.
Sure, the change is there and we have to live with it (if we choose to). But that doesn't mean we can not have our voice here because after many, many years of supporting FF with our use, we suddenly are facing a layout we were always running away from.
So yes, that can cause ranting and so on (within the forum rules of course) because people feel strongly about there beloved browser.
(edit rules link note the whole topic is ordinarily outside the scope of the forum ... Posts in the Mozilla support forum must be either questions about the use of Firefox, ... Users who post about things other than Mozilla support will be directed to an alternative discussion place .... . ~J99)

Plus this way you can centralize all the negatives here instead of a lot of separate postings about the same subject ;)
To the people reacting here in this topic: there is only 1 real way to let Mozilla itself know how you feel on the new lay out and that is not through this forum. The way is to go to https://input.mozilla.org/feedback/ and let it know there.
edit You need to use a supported Firefox to post Feedback so that will soon not be possible from Fx28 2nd edit. I was wrong feedback works with any version of Fiefpx now~J99

And I think when that is done in normal words (so no f*ck you rants and so on) and suggestions, then maybe, just maybe, it has some effect.
Also, there is an Mozilla support page with info on how to get the "old look" back, see How to make the new Firefox look like the old FirefoxBut it will only partly restore the old look, certain FF29 things can not be changed.

And yes, I myself am back to Firefox 28 which is not supported or suggested by Mozilla because it has things (bugs and security) that are not fixed in it. (Edit Please use Official downloads if you must downgrade links in Install an older version of Firefox and the growing list of exploits you will open yourself up to is listed here: https://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefox.html ~J99)

I am not suggesting or advertising to others to do the same. It is a risk I am willing to take and only say it is an option.
edit My reason to go back to FF 28 is because that version still has the intuitive feel and look Firefox one was praised for. With a logical lay out and a good way to simply customize it (also in about:config).
For those who say/think "Come one man, stop whining! Grow up and just accept that Firefox has to go with its time!", to them I say: nope ;)
