When I type www.amazon.com and then sign in on my 37.01 firefox (SHA1 13fbc8686b0bc443f77297743443958e3d471d73) the following appears in the URL field with an exclamation icon in front the URL.

https://support.cdn.mozilla.net/media/uploads/images/2015-05-24-12-21-56-d1fc8e.png

If I open the same web site on the same workstation using a different browser it works showing the proper https. Also if I copy the URL address to Firefox it works showing the proper URL value.

Firefox appears to change the URL address as shown

Bad URL: https://www.amazon.com/ap/signin?_encoding=UTF8&openid.assoc_handle=usflex&openid.claimed_id=http%3A%2F%2Fspecs.openid.net%2Fauth%2F2.0%2Fidentifier_select&openid.identity=http%3A%2F%2Fspecs.openid.net%2Fauth%2F2.0%2Fidentifier_select&openid.mode=checkid_setup&openid.ns=http%3A%2F%2Fspecs.openid.net%2Fauth%2F2.0&openid.ns.pape=http%3A%2F%2Fspecs.openid.net%2Fextensions%2Fpape%2F1.0&openid.pape.max_auth_age=0&openid.return_to=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fgp%2Fyourstore%2Fhome%3Fie%3DUTF8%26ref_%3Dnav_ya_signin

good URL: https://www.amazon.com/ap/signin/189-4554439-6554623?_encoding=UTF8&openid.assoc_handle=usflex&openid.claimed_id=http%3A%2F%2Fspecs.openid.net%2Fauth%2F2.0%2Fidentifier_select&openid.identity=http%3A%2F%2Fspecs.openid.net%2Fauth%2F2.0%2Fidentifier_select&openid.mode=checkid_setup&openid.ns=http%3A%2F%2Fspecs.openid.net%2Fauth%2F2.0&openid.ns.pape=http%3A%2F%2Fspecs.openid.net%2Fextensions%2Fpape%2F1.0&openid.pape.max_auth_age=0&openid.return_to=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fgp%2Fyourstore%2Fhome%3Fie%3DUTF8%26ref_%3Dnav_ya_signin

This means that Firefox is distorting the URL address, why?

This is my first time asking a questions, so I may not be doing it quite right. Anyway, after downloading the update to 37.0.1, viewing pdfs became different. I now get a separate download window (which I didn't get before) and when I go to the downloaded pdf file, I now have to answer several questions before I'm able to get the Reader to run. I believe pdfs used to just open up automatically in a new tab without having to do anything. Is there a way to restore that behavior? Thanks for your help.

This is probably the 5th time I tried to switch to Firefox as my browser, but I always end up getting frustrated when I can not play videos and I search for answers on how to solve this, hours and hours wasted, after I tried several options, but nothing. I just followed the instructions, again, for installing FlashPlayer for Firefox, even thou it was installed already in my computer ( as it was always before) and its working perfectly for IE and Chrome. Followed the instructions here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-flash-plugin-view-videos-animations-games#w_installing-the-flash-plugin-manually exactly as it states, but when I go to add ons manager and pluggins is NOT there at all.

I would really like to use Firefox as my browser as I do not like google, but this is just too frustrating and it seems complicated, which I do not understand why?

Anyone can help and show me how to do this? Thanks!

When browsing with Frefox, I used to be able to click on a PDF link and have Foxit Reader open the file in a separate (Foxit) window. Now no matter what I do, the PDF opens within Firefox in what I suppose is a Firefox PDF reader.

I am working from a brand new instal of Windows; also new video card, processor, hard drive. Last night Firefox was crashing every five minutes. It crashed once before I put on my addons, and multiple times after (somewhere around 30 times). I tried rolling back to an older version of Firefox and that crashed as well. It will either crash on startup, or it will open my tabs and then shut down.

Here is the information that might be helpful: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/bp-864db5b8-b866-4d20-9f60-913862150406

I ran Firefox reset to get rid of my add-ons, but they were: Extensions: Adblock plus 2.6.9, Amazon Smile 1button for Firefox, Norton Toolbar 2014.7.12.7, reddit enhancement suite 4.5.4, abd speed dial [fvd] 6.6.7.

Theme: Fractal Frost

Plugins: OpenH264 Video by Cisco 1.3 (always activate); Shockwave flash 13.0.0.277 (always); NVIDIA 3d vision 7.17.13.4788 (ask to activate) - 2 of these, one Vision and one Vision Streaming; and WildTangent Games (never activate/disabled).

It has crashed at least 3 times since I reset Firefox.

Whenever a dialogue box or prompt box comes up, the all of the buttons or sometimes just the bottom two (OK and cancel) are blank and nothing happens when I click on them, with the exception of one website in which clicking the blank button that normally says "OK" takes me to a blank screen. This doesn't allow me to access certain websites or download anything when a dialogue box asks me to confirm. As a result, I also cannot start firefox in safe mode or refresh it.

Attached is an example. That is what came up when I tried to refresh firefox. Nothing happens when I click either of the buttons at the bottom.

EDIT: Attached the image.

When I go to "Tools" / "Plug-Ins" and click on "Check To see If Plugins Are Up To Date" it goes to Mozilla Check Your Plugin Page, but fails to show plugins or checked plugins update status. ( https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_campaign=plugincheck-update ) I am using OS X 10.10.3 / Firefox 37.0.1 / March-14-2015

Tried, re-installing over original, clearing cookies, clearing cache and starting in Safe Mode to no avail. Another ridiculous oversight and there's never any support for when things do go awry. Unfortunately, I have received no professional concern, with a competent cause and cure. none. And I have had and reported this problem since Firefox 35.0.

Need info and a fix, for Months Now! Thanks! Whitebuck

In the search bar I type the word London and press Enter and get the results of a Google search (my default search engine). I click the magnifying glass to open the search dropdown and click the Wikipedia icon (to perform a search on Wikipedia for the word London). However the results are not from Wikipedia but are the same as my previous search on Google. The only way I can get the search to be performed on Wikipedia is to change Wikipedia to my default search engine. Am I misunderstanding how the one-click search is supposed to work or can you tell me what I need to change to get this to work? Thanks

Hi. Trying to upload multiple items pdfs to merge here: http://foxyutils.com/mergepdf/ Should work 'normally' - control click to select multiple. I've used the site previously, but today got a fresh user account as the last one was setup incorrectly (but I had FF and this worked AFAIK).

FF 37.0.1 on Win7 enterprise, ghostery & adblockplus turned off, java temporarily set to "always allow", java dev set to "ask" (can't change).

Any thoughts anyone? Seems very strange. Not sure if it's a Windows problem; I can select multiple items with control+click in windows explorer...

Hi there, let me explain my problem.

We need to offer an book to people buying for donation to congress. ( Order form is here: http://christian-heritage.eserbia.org/order )

So, we have page for selecting persons or institution for donation. Buying goes via PayPal. After patron pay books using PayPal we must know whom to donate payed books.

We have tried following: 1. Patron should select person in the page ( http://christian-heritage.eserbia.org/order ) 2. After this he should click on PayPal button "Pay Now" and this click brings user to PayPal. ... and how to record patron's choice in the form ( http://christian-heritage.eserbia.org/order ) ? After one submit form to PayPal, all data about users selections in the form are lost.

Solution was : On click on the button "Pay Now", before submit, collect patron's selections (using JS) and using AJAX post data to php script for saving to database. After this, submit only books quantity to PayPal for buying. And this works in all popular browsers except Firefox (tested in Chrome, IE, Opera and all works fine.)

More details with codes (code is simplified):


$('#beforesend').on('click', function(){

  var data = 'quantity=' + books_qty;
   $('#result li').each(function(ind){

data = data +"&dat[][users choices from form]" });

     ....
      $.ajax({

url: "app/ordering.php", //Record user choices to database. type: 'POST', data: data, dataType: 'text' }).done(function(dat) { console.log(dat); }).fail(function(jqXHR, textStatus) { console.log("Firefox paranoia..."); return false; });

      $('#buy').submit();       // Without this line AJAX works... but  we can't send post to PayPal.
      return true;

}



I can't see security risk if this AJAX post goes to the same domain as script domain.

As I said, this script worked in all tested browsers except Firefox.


Sorry for my not so best English. :(

Best regards.
