For some reason the theater mode it no longer (as of today) working properly. It does turn the upper part of the screen black as it used to, but now the video itself is very tiny within the black area. Also the black area itself is smaller (top to bottom) than it used to be. I don't know if this is a problem with youtube or a function of Firefox. Note that I did upgrade to windows 10 just today as well. Are there settings in firefox that will fix this or is it truly a youtube problem?

The video in the theater mode is actually smaller than the default mode. I have included a pic of both default and theater mode

EVERY website I click on give me back this Error page on my Mac Book Pro:

Server not found

Firefox can't find the server at www.weather.com.

   Check the address for typing errors such as ww.example.com instead of www.example.com
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

What's rong?

Firebox is very slow when switching between tabs, the more tabs the slower it gets, switching between Firefox windows is almost instantaneous.

This happens whatever each tab is displaying. For example, if I open, say, 8 default new tabs it takes about 5 seconds to switch between them although all they are showing are links to my 9 top sites. I've also noticed that opening a new tab takes longer the more I have open already. The problem is uniquely with the tabs. Browsing isn't any slower than usual and as I say above, switching between Firefox windows in unaffected.

It saves space to have icons rather than the page description.

Hi,

Here is my issue:

For some reason I suddenly get a black bar on top of each window. I don't get this black bar in safe mode. I still get this black bar with all extension disabled (equivalent to safe mode) I don't get this black bar when I select to have the title bar in 'customize'.

Seems to be related to the title bar somehow...

I am using the last version of FF (42) on OSX 10.11.1

Thank you very much in advance for your help. Best, -J-

Hello,

I have been using Firefox for several years and until about a week or so ago it always kept me logged when I wanted it to. However, all of a sudden it won't do that for my yahoo account. I have the "keep me signed in" check box checked and I have white listed all the yahoo addresses involved with this.

Firefox 42 won't keep me logged in there any more. I have changed nothing (literally nothing). It just happened all of a sudden.

I have Win 10

Can someone help?

Regards kk

I have been trying desperately to install facebook purity add on/ extension, and on chrome, had no problem, works great, but firefox keeps giving me the dreaded pop up that says " Firefox prevented this site from asking you to install add on" I went into the permissions and listed this website as an exception, there is no box that pops up and says/asks me to 'allow ' it, i went to about:config, and the signature thingy is already set to false, as per prior articles questions, and so none of these possible fixes work, how the heck do I get firefox to allow me to choose for my self and my own reasons, the add on and not stop me??? please tell me what steps to use, i have toldyou what i already tried, now i just need some help as this happens all the time. OMG when I hit the button at bottom of page to automatically add troubleshooting information, the same pop up came on and wouldn't allow it, here on ffmozilla!!!

Pursuant to December 2015 Adobe Security Bulletin, I wanted to check my previous Shockwave Plugin update and viola! It had already updated to 20.0.0.235 as of 12/08/2015. Great! Having said that, I also noted that beneath the above update was an earlier November 2015 Shockwave 19.0.0.245, still in place . . . . a bit strange, nespau? Am I mistaken, but the new update should entirely replace the old, not install anew and the older version remain status quo? Does not appear to be a problem performance-wise, however, I would appreciate opinions as to whether the latter should be manually removed, or left as is.

See attached Screenshot.

Thanks in advance.

When I used to click on a link a box opened up - "you have chosen to open:" and asked what Firefox should do with the file giving me a choice of "open with" or "save file". I would click "OK" on "open with" Microsoft Word and it would open. Now it does not do that. It just goes directly to the download icon and when i click on that it says its downloading the link. I've been able to go from there and get to the file and open it but most of the time it wont. Regardless, I would like it to open immediately like it did originally. I think i must have accidentally changed something somewhere but I have no clue. I'm very computer illiterate. I appreciate any help I get on this!

I originally had the same problem as here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1085113 . The offered solution was to edit the userChrome.css file. So I created this file (into a folder named chrome) in my profile folder, copied and pasted the suggested code into it, saved the file, and restarted firefox. This had no effect at all. Then I tried some of the examples given in http://kb.mozillazine.org/UserChrome-example.css and http://www-archive.mozilla.org/unix/customizing.html , again to no effect. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

I can open links when I search with Bing or Yahoo, and Google searches work when I'm using IE, so it's only when I'm using Google with Firefox. Also, if I try to open links in a new tab, I get Error 404. For example, if I try to open bbc.co.uk/news from the search page it doesn't do anything, if I try to open it in a new tab I get Error 404 and this string in the address bar: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CB4QFjAAahUKEwjEzpKmif3IAhUM9GMKHQZeClQ&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bbc.com%2Fnews&usg=AFQjCNFZIG7IKy3foMCFY0dzRExKv9KjFQ

I've tried refreshing Firefox and disabling add-ons; I'm not sure what else to do.

I have Windows 10, if that has anything to do with the problem.

I'm having trouble changing the background color of my newtab page to something other than the white that it is now. Browsing in a dark room is extremely blinding when opening the newtab page. In the past, I've modified my userContent.css file with the following (among other things):

@-moz-document url("about:newtab") {

#newtab-scrollbox{background-color:#000000!important;}
#newtab-window{background-color:#000000!important;}

}

This has always worked and has achieved the results I want, but since I updated to Firefox 42.0 this morning it does not appear to work anymore. My newtab background color is off-white and is way too bright for my taste.

I have a strong preference NOT to install any add-ons to do this as it should be easy to do from the userContent.css file. Not sure why my code no longer works...

If I throw the following into userContent.css, *{background-color:#000000;}, it has the obvious effect of setting everything to black, including the background of the newtab cells. This tells me I can set the background, I just need the proper syntax.



OS: Windows 8.1 Firefox Version: 42.0

Thanks!

Upon return to firefox after buying an new laptop, I have had following problem consistently for the last 2 weeks: While randomly browsing, firefox will make my entire computer freeze at irregular intervals. The only solution is a manual restart. I went through the entire troubleshooting page, disabled all my add-ons and extensions but the problem keeps appearing. It's very hard to pin down what's going wrong though as it seems to be happening so randomly. I do not get any crash report.

Any advice would be much appreciated, I'd really like to stick with firefox.
