I updated Firefox yesterday. Now I can't load Calendar - from a bookmark, nor from the Apps link.

Here is what I get. I've ensured cookies are abled.

The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

A couple of days ago, I did an update of Firefox and since then, no matter what website I go to, I have huge, flashing, distracting ads from both Google work from home and ads by Media Player, both malware. I managed to run a program that lessened the number of them on each page, but nothing has gotten rid of them all. Extremely annoying, is there anything you can do or suggest that might help? Also pages are loading very, very slowly.

Thank you so much for any help you can give.

It appears that most sites get my location from Mozilla Firefox. It is constantly incorrect and moves around. Today it was someplace in Texas and I live in Ohio. This is a desktop computer and doesn't move. I have set it on several sites and I don't delete my cookies but somewhere along the line it gets changed. It appears it gets changed in my Mozilla Firefox. I know you go off the dsl location or something but it just doesn't work. Even when it gets me in Ohio it's constantly a different city. How can I get a permanent location in Mozilla Firefox or disable the location finder in Mozilla Firefox?

Malwarebytes doesn't see it, nor does AVG. I have uninstalled and re-installed Firefox, but that didn't help either. I have removed Java, Flash Player, and Shockwave Player from my PC, but still the bugger pops up.

I am running Windows 7, 64 bit, with all the updates. Is it time for a Mac?

I download pdf files all day to save and print. Before the update last week, they would download and then automatically open in Adobe Reader 11.0.10. Now they will download, and I can open them manually, but it was much nicer when they opened on their own. Thanks!

Videos, like mp4 Vines, won't play in Firefox. Same with the media files like podcasts in rss feeds. All used to work fine. This is an intermittent problem with Firefox ( might be due to updates ) but it doesn't happen with IE or Chrome

If i uninstall VLC player or disable the VLC plugin, nothing happens If i have those installed but the VLC plugin is set to " Never activate ", i can right click on the video image, click " Play " and it opens in VLC player and works perfectly. If i have the plugin set to " always activate " then i see a black square and the message " the video can't be played because the file is corrupt "

Windows 8.1, Firefox 35.

This is an issue with Firefox and needs to be resolved.

When I upgraded to this latest version of Firefox my default search engine became Yahoo. I then used your directions to change to Google, but the display results on Google are extremely small, while the other search engine results remain at normal size. i don't want to start zooming to increase display results as then the websites I go to will be too large. I am a marketing communications consultant and must use Google to assist my clients with SEO functionality.

I tried attaching screen captures of search results for Firefox and Bing so you could see the difference, but they wouldn't load. I am on an iMac 10.7.5

Why am I not able to run my Norton tool bar on Firefox version 35. I've run Norton Live update...not giving me good results. I was using an older version of Firefox...Norton was compatible for a while and suddenly became compatible..not acceptable. I don't usually update FireFox immediately because of issues like this in the past, but Firefox likes to take over....

I'm to the point where I feel like forgetting Firefox and switching permanently back to Explorer..

So frustrating.

Have been using firefox and last week when trying to open the message was it cannot connect to internet etc. Uninstalled and reinstalled twice. installed again and per instructions added back in to my windows firewall. I also have Norton. That did the trick except that Norton notified me that Suspicious.cloud9 was detected and quarantined. Its origin was Mozilla. I am now leary of using Firefox due to this fact. Did not see the Stub 35 file the first time I loaded Firefox.

I've set the options to be "Show windows and tabs from last time" and in the Privacy setting, I have "Firefox will remember history", also i reset browser.sessionstore* preferences as showed in snapshot below... Still every time firefox restart >>tools/options/general/startup/when firafox starts<< changes back to home page.

What are my options here?...

I'm using Firefox 35.0.1. If I make a post on my Facebook timeline that contains a link, when I hit "Post" and the page goes to refresh to add my post to my timeline, it asks if I'm sure I want to leave the page. I've seen that messages on some sites before, for example, if I'm on a forum and I write a post and go to leave the page before hitting submit, it'll ask me that, but I've never seen it on Facebook until a couple of days ago.

Is there any way to turn this message off? Or even better, can it be turned off just on Facebook? Thanks.

Just hit an SSL-only site that I needed to access that FF 35 blocked. I don't see an obvious way to create an exception or re-enable it. We need this option... many users understand POODLE and can make an intelligent decision regarding the risks. TLS has its vulnerabilities as well.
