negotiating the screen changes just to ask a simple question took me through 9 screen changes already!!! why the "screen testing"? I am not trying to get a part in a movie. Simply, when I checked "help", "forum",and now prompted to ask this as a "new" question although I saw in forums 450 or so users complained that their FF4 was not compatible as the last version of 3 was. Without taking 6 hours of searching 25 more screen changes: simply does anyone know if this will crash/hang/send error pages or damage our PC's to have FF5 and this TM security add-on together? thank you for your consideration of my question, and I apologize if my fonts show up on your side and are bothersome. I need them for my vision impairment

I've recently installed windows 8 on a VHD (my main OS is Windows 7) and I was wondering if it was possible to share the same firefox profile on both operating systems. I have the profile manager from ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/utilities/profilemanager/, but when I tried to make a new profile at the location of my main profile, it instead made a subdirectory under my main profile. Is there anything I can do to share the profile between the two? I could always use sync, but I would like to share my addons, if possible.

When I go to y8friv.com, a game site, many times when I click a link to a game, Firefox says "connection reset while loading" and I can't access the game. However, when I use Google Chrome, I can play games without a problem.

Also, when I use deviantart.com with Firefox, it interferes with Yahoo Messenger - makes me logout or lose service with Yahoo at times. Again, with Chrome, this is not an issue.

Win8Consumer Preview Nvidia probs

I have two desktop PCs with identical MOBOs and processors running Win8CP, one has an NVIDIA GT220 graphics card and is on WiFI, the other is on integrated AMD 3000 graphics and wired connection.

The one with NVidia card shows odd artifacts around the close/minimise/maximise gadgets top right in Firefox (actually fragments from elsewhere on the display window) and also oddities in tab colouring with the same prog and also odd tab colour behaviour when mousing over certain areas of some websites (eg gmail). The other machine seems rock solid.

Other programs seem to run fine, inc. Opera, IE10 and Chrome running gmail.

I suspect the NVIDIA drivers or how firefox is coded.

1 Is this a known problem?

2 what further information might help resolve the problem?

3 Does anyone know of if there likely to be any further driver release?

4 Any other suggestions welcome.

Best Regards, George

For reference the mobo is ASUSTeK Computer INC. M3A76-CM

I noticed Foxit Reader Plugin throws a lot errors on some pages about PDF document, even though there's none. First I saw this problem on amazon.com. There's no errors on main page, but when I choose any item it throws around 5 errors. Today I noticed similar happens in my hotmail account. When I try to view inbox it throws 8 error dialogs, also page doesn't work in general; can't view emails, navigate folders (just nothing happens if I click). Is there a way to fix this?

I'm using Stylish addon for Firefox with a default dark css. I also have changed the default Window colors in Windows registry. This has changed the about:blank page's color to a dark one. But when I open a link on a new tab, before the page loads, Firefox is showing a blank page with white background. I wonder how can I change this white color to a different one.

I'm observing very sluggish performance in Firefox on my Surface Pro using Windows 8.1 RTM. I can't quite track down what's going on, but some startups take as much as 10-12 seconds. Additionally, the overall browser performance is sluggish.

I've tried running in Safe Mode and it's still quite slow.

Hi - I'm using Firefox v. 24, which I believe is the latest version and since I use automatic updates, I believe that my system is up to date. The problem that I'm having on my Windows 8.1 Preview system (Thinkpad X1 Carbon Touch) and I can't get FireFox to show 100 Gmail lines as a setting that sticks. Every day I try to fix it, but at the next boot-up, it just goes back to 20. Very frustrating!! I haven't had this problem before installing v.24. Any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thanks!!! SS

How can I delete this and get back my original tab displays? I am really not too sure how this all started if i downloaded something or not.

I am using Firefox stable version 24 on Windows 8.1 (RTM).

I would like to clear all cookies upon exit of Firefox, except for those sites specified in the exceptions list. When I add websites to the exceptions list they are saved until I restart firefox, at which point the exceptions list becomes empty again.

I have tried to play around with the about:permissions page, but the list of websites on the left is also empty despite me having visited numerous websites in the current browsing session.

Any help would be appreciated.

Using FF24 for the last several days with windows 8. Today, after "upgrading" to Windows 8.1, I've lost all bookmarks. Interestingly, I also lost all my email in Thunderbird.

I've tried importing the Firefox bookmarks from a windows vista machine with no success. Tries both as an HTML file and as JSON file.

Before re-entering all the bookmarks manually, I'm hoping there is an easy solution.

Thanks
