I have a basic html form embedded in a Wordpress footer widget to collect email addresses and I can place the cursor in the input field (there is only one input field) but I cannot see what I'm typing. If I enter an invalid email address (without being able to see what I'm typing) and hit the submit button I can see on the error page (since a valid email address is required) what I originally typed. The URL is askdrkyle.com and the form is on the left hand side of the footer.

I do not have this problem in any other browser.

Thanks!

With the new Firefox 43.0 update it asked me if I wanted to try using the suggestions option in the location bar. I have tried it and do not like this function. Whenever I type in addresses it no longer auto-compeltes because instead it says 'visit (website)', but only if it detects something it can guess like Facebook. Otherwise, it assume I'm searching something and I have to skip over it to go to the website I have saved in my history.

How do I turn this function off?

When in Firefox, if I attempt to print a page (either through typing Command-P or via the File menu), it crashes immediately (even before bringing up the popup to select printing options). It does this for all pages (ie. page content does not seem to matter). Also, if I go to the same URL in another browser such as Chrome, the page can be printed without incident.

Here is the most recent crash ID and report: bp-365ce20b-9536-4107-9937-5b3f52150611 https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/365ce20b-9536-4107-9937-5b3f52150611

I really hope this issue isn't impossible to solve. The reason for wanting to disable the private browsing should be obvious - you may have kids in your house using your computer and chances are you don't want them to have the option of going places they shouldn't without their parents knowing about it.

An answer would be greatly appreciated!

Hello! I have Windows 8.1 and I’m trying to make changes to my internet options. I can’t see any emotion smileys at all on facebook and I’m using firefox. I have heard that this will help: go into internet options, advanced tab, tick the box at the top that says software rendering instead of gpu.

But when I go to the settings I think my computer thinks I’m using internet explorer even though I have set firefox as my default browser.

I don’t know how I should do to get the settings iI wrote above in firefox. There were not in Firefox -> Tools -> Settings either. Do you know how I should do to make this settings or any other settings that will make me see the smileys again? English is not my mother language so I hope all the words I wrote were right.

Thank you!

Since AdBlock Plus for Firefox 45.0.21 is no longer supported, does anyone know of another good ad blocker for Firefox for Mac?

A current limitation with the AdBlock Plus is the following error message in the Preferences window: "Warning: Adblock Plus is either disabled or not installed. For this addon to work properly, you have to install or enable Adblock Plus."

I have installed and enabled the current version of Adblock Plus, and I've also uninstalled and reinstalled this Firefox extension. But I still receive the above noted warning message.

Thanks for any suggestions on replacements for Adblocker Plus.

I have Firefox 35.0.1 and I've been trying to update it. I get the notification for the update, click on it, it prompts me to restart Firefox, so I click restart and after it restarts, it prompts me to update again and in About, it still says I'm at 35.0.1.

TL;DR: I'm getting recursive update notifications that never update. Restart, update, restart, update, restart, update...

I've followed all the instructions for enabling the cookies, but I still can't get Gmail to open up. I can get Google to open, but not any of my Gmail accounts. I also can't force Google to set as my home page, but that's a minor problem compared to not being able to access any Gmail accounts from Firefox. I am NOT computer literate, so all advice needs to take into consideration that I won't automatically know every step to take along the way. I sure wish Mozilla would have a 1-800 number to call. That'd make this a whole lot easier.

I noticed this morning that Firefox updated. My facebook feed today has been very odd: It flashes all the stories by without stopping, no matter if I choose "Top" or "Most Recent." Eventually I get a blank/empty feed. If I go to my "home" it's normal. Any suggestions? Doesn’t happen in Safari—Facebook is normal there.

Hi! My first post here, and I couldn't find a right solution for my case.

Here's what happened:

After forcing Firefox to quit and then turning it on again all the tabs that were opened in a previous session became inactive and would load as new/blank tabs without any address in them.

I used to reload Firefox previously and it was acting just fine with showing all of my tabs from the session before the reload. But now all of them are just blank.

Is there a way to make these blank tabs work as previously? Can I somehow restore them? Please help, I have so much important information in these tabs. Thank you!

I upgraded my Mac to OS 10.10.4 (Yosemite) and now, I have no scroll bar on Firefox windows. I can use the arrow down to get a scroll bar to appear, but this is terribly annoying. Even after I arrow down and the scroll bar appears, it will disappear again after non-use. Is there a setting to have the scroll bar visible at all times?

I've seen that there is a Google add-on for Firefox that opts out of Google Analytics. Since I trust Google about as far as I could throw a grand piano, my question is: a) is this add-on safe to use? b) is it necessary, or is there something that I could use that would block Google Analytics as part of its blocking? I do not use Google Search any more and have removed it from Firefox (or does it get re-installed every time I update?). I am a neophyte about computer privacy and am trying to learn.
