Out of the blue, my back button (and backspace button on keyboard) stopped working on some sites (TV Guide, Washington Post) but not others (Yahoo, Wikipedia) ... When I hit the button, the tab for the page "blinks" but it doesn't revert to the previous page. If I hold down the back button until the list of previous pages appears, I can click on the previous page and it will return ...

I've tried closing Firefox and rebooting without success ... Any ideas?

As stated, Flash updated a few days ago. 1.4.00.79 I believe. Firefox is Version 31.0 Up til then everything worked. Now Firefox is slow as hell. Restarted Firefox many times. Restarted computer several times. Turned shockwave to Ask to activate and it seems to run fine but it is a hassle to keep having to turn it on to watch something. Chrome and IE work fine but I prefer Firefox... but will have to use one of the other two until or unless this gets fixed. Any help is appreciated (in as simple terms as possible.) Thanks, Jim

Hi guys! I'm using the latest version of Firefox. I bought a new laptop today and synced everything from my old laptop and everything is exactly as it was. However, one difference I do notice is that I am now no longer able to create a new tab by clicking to the right of a tab as the little + button has disappeared.

Can anyone help with this? I also have an annoyingly large chunk of blank in the URL bar that wasn't on my old laptop either.

Thank you so much!

Since I use my computer for both work and personal activity and I conduct a lot of online meetings it is a distraction and unprofessional to have a bunch of website thumbnails showing up if I happen to need to open a new window while sharing my screen. This is one reason I stopped using Chrome ad now I see it's an issue with Firefox.

I get sent regular emails from Ebay on auctions that look interesting to me, when I click on the item to get directed to ebay, firefox sends a message that says "firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page" then there is an X box and an allow option. It comes up regularly and can get annoying. It started when I downloaded the latest version of Firefox. Thank you

Once Firefox 31 is installed it sees all PDF files as Firefox HTML files and changes all of the PDF icons to Firefox HTML icons. This change can not seem to be reversed without uninstalling Firefox. Only the icon is changed, not the .PDF extension.

Right now, I am looking at my screen and this mozilla webite is occupying the right hand 75% of the screen. On the left hand 25% of my screen, I'm seeing a portion of the stock market website I want see and I can't close the window on the right hand side of the screen without shutting down Mozilla completely. I know tha this has something to do with settings because this happened when I was messing around with settings but I can't reverse it. Thanks!!!!!

Hi,

I have recently added some bookmarks to my toolbar and I was wondering if and how I can add a little picture or icon next to the Name of the bookmark (like the little horse or whatever it is next to the "getting Started" bookmark)

Sorry this is probably really straight forward and my 5 year old son could would be able to work it out but I am however, technologically challenged.

Thank you for you for your valued time. Looking forward to hearing from you

Regards, Kirsty

Any suggestions on how to fix this or whether this is an issue/bug with the update would be greatly appreciated.

I just got a new laptop and cannot get my tabs to work as they used to. On my old laptop, when I was in Firefox and clicked a link, I stayed on the same tab. When I was reading email and clicked a new link, I a new tab opened.

On my new laptop, I got a new tab every time a link was clicked regardless on being in Outlook or Firefox - too may tabs. My son helped me change the about:config file and now when I select links from Outlook, whatever tab I am in gets replaced with the link I select in Outlook. I want my existing Firefox tabs to stay the same and open a new one for the link select from email. However, I don't want a new tab for every link selected while in Firefox.

Hope that makes sense, thanks.

Since updating to Firefox 31.0, the vast majority of Google / web fonts are not displaying correctly, including icons that are being replaced with random characters. When I view the Google web fonts page, only a few display correctly, the rest just default to a sans-serif font.

- I've tried running in safe mode with no add-ons enabled. - I've tried disabling all add-ons then re-enabling one by one. - I've checked the tickbox in the font settings for 'Allow pages to use their own fonts' is ticked

Any help appreciated, it's got quite frustrating now. Thanks, Greg
