For a while through a number of updates, I see this on certain websites, rolling stone and cnbc are two for example. If I go to fonts in my computer, and hit restore default font settings, it only temporarily resolves the issue. If I go to settings and disable websites from using their own fonts, it resolves it but fonts do not appear as sites intend them to appear. This does not happen in other browsers, only firefox. I reinstalled windows 7 fonts. I tried disabling hardware acceleration... Still hasn't resolved the issue. How can I resolve this issue in firefox?

This is one hard site to navigate around ! ... I've been trying to register for 2 days and there is NO where to do it.. .the sign in page is useless. You really need to make registering a lot easier. I think I maybe registered now i had to create an account to write here ? and if I am, I found it by mistake.

Now I'm here I would like to ask this question...

Has anyone had this message using Firefox with Facebook, it logged me out and won't let me log back in, keeps giving me the below message,

        • It looks like your computer is being affected by malware. We’ll help you fix the problem to keep your account secure and prevent malware from spreading to friends.

Malware is software that tries to steal personal information and causes problems when you use Facebook. Clicking or sharing links that contain spam can give your computer malware.**** I can log in with Chrome.. but still get the same message through firefox, and that's after uninstalling, taking all traces of it out of the register and re-installing it, and I also downloaded Malwarebytes and ran it, but still no luck.

All help will be much appreciated :)

Cheers Louise

After computer refresh most bookmarks were missing because the refresh uninstalled Firefox. I was able to restore most of them from a backup created and saved by Firefox. Problem is it was 3 months old so that Bookmarks created in the last 3 months were not restored.

How can I set up an automatic bookmark backup to create a new backup every 30 days?

Also, when Firefox is uninstalled and then reinstalled on the same computer is the program able to restore all prior settings from the profile folder?

Thanks !

Oddly enough this also happens in Firefox, Chrome and IE9. Scanned for malware with no results. Finally I downloaded AOL desktop and surprise, I can now open AOL mail, but only in their desktop. This appears to be both blackmail and coercion by AOL. I say that because this problem is VERY common on the net with ALL browsers. Any other possibilities?

Some months ago Firefox started prompting when i went into full screen mode : Allow or deny - it's irritating. I wantt o allow always without the prompt.

I know about Tools>page info>permissions but that is only url by url.

I found something that worked in here before, but it seems to have reset when firefox restarted. And i can't find the method this time around!

Thanks

File not found

Firefox can't find the file at magnet:?xt=urn:btih:11b4c485eda4a9dbd75605a3006cf8b38605dd8c&dn.........//tracker.openbittorrent.com:80&tr=udp://open.demonii.com:1337&tr=udp://tracker.coppersurfer.tk:6969&tr=udp://exodus.desync.com:6969.

   Check the file name for capitalization or other typing errors.
   Check to see if the file was moved, renamed or deleted.

Even though I was able to download it on other computers ..

When I try to open the Menu tab on the Menu Bar nothing happens. If any thing when I click on Menu a very small square appears under the underlined M then disappears when I click it again. All of the other tabs on the Menu Bar from File to Help work just fine. I uninstalled Firefox 38.0.1 the reinstalled again and the problem still persist. I even went back to 37.0.2 however the problem still appears even though it did not happen when I was running 37.0.2 prior to installing 38.0.1. It should be noted that I actually upgraded to 38.0.1 on 5/17/2015 and everything has worked fine until today.

I have updated my Firefox to the latest stable release 57 in a windows machine. I would like to know if TLS 1.2 is already enabled in my browser or do i need to make any changes in the default setup in order to make it active.

When i check "security.tls.version.min" it's shown "Value 1". Is that the right value to TLS 1.2 ?

Kindly advise.
