I just upgraded to FF 15 and every time I open my browser it goes thru this search function and then opens a welcome to ff 15 page & wants me to get the mobile browser. I don't want it and I don't want this page to load every time.

How can I disable it? (in layman's terms please cuz I'm technically challenged. :D )

Thanks!!

I just looked at FF's educated guess at my plug ins & I don't recognize half of them! Do I need them all? If not, which ones can I get rid of & how do I disable them?

When I updated from 14.1?? UP to 15. My pages load slower. BEFORE update. Pages were fast, Have tried against Opera AND Internet Explorer. Both of those load like Firefox USE to. I have tried resetting,tweaking and reinstalling. Same issue. Is there a way to go back to 14? Or can I make 15 better? Like I said. SAME pages with other browsers load at least 30-40% faster.

I downloaded Firefox v16 yesterday and my roboform toolbar shows on my home page but if i click a hyperlink to take me to a new web page or new tab my roboform toolbar disappears.

I have now downloaded firefox v15 as roboform works ok in that and opens up on every new tab or window

I have been in touch with RF but I dont understand what they are trying to tell me to do now as I have tried various things they told me to and its not working

The problem only started when i upgraded to FF16

When I try to log in to ESPN, it tells me that cookies are not enabled. I then go to Tools, Options, and select custom settings, enable cookies, I make sure that ESPN is not an exception, I have cleared all history and cache etc...all the things the other support forums suggest - and nothing works. When I go back to tools / options etc... the setting I make do not stay - it reverts back to "never remember history" - no changes I make stick.

Download window in Firefox 15.0.1 goes blank after every download

It used to be that when you downloaded a file or program, the download manager kept track of the downloads. Now, the window goes blank as soon as the download is complete. The only info I have been able to find concerning this problem is for firefox 3. I'd say that was severely outdated but still I followed the suggestions. It still doesn't work. Last week, I downloaded a program from the internet that contained malicious software. It was missed by Malwarebytes, IOBIT Malware Fighter, SuperAntiSpyware, as well as Avast. It was named "Drop.do" It made a real mess of my operating system. I automatically scan with these programs as soon as the download is done. All of my downloads go to one folder which makes it easy to find the downloads but as my memory isn't what it used to be, I sometimes forget what files I downloaded. I haven't been able to remember what program I downloaded so I have no idea if the program is still on my computer. I use Win 7 Ultimate 64 and Firefox 15.0.1. I really need the program manager to start remembering what is downloaded for those times I can't. I have been using Firefox for many years. I don't like anything microsoft so I refuse to use explorer. I despise chrome so it ain't gonna even get on my system. Is there anything I can do to resolve this problem????

Since updating, I get no download when I click on a download link. I have tried changing the settings in Preferences, checking and unchecking the various options, but nothing helps. I also tried to use Safari to download PDF's, using the links from Firefox, and it too doesn't download, or hides the downloads somewhere where I can't find them. I have a Mac. Does anyone have any suggestions?

so when i am shopping and i hover the mouse over a image of a product it will come up with something that says "see similar" and will proceed to load just below with some of the products, this is only on some shopping sites, but is its the most annoying feature ever, is there anyway to turn it off. I;m unsure if it is a add-on, however none of them having anything to do with shopping (ad block, greecemonkey (one script using) stylish (again one a cosmetic look of the right click script) skype plug in and imarcos (no macros being used)

I am a c# programmer. I'm going to write a program that sometimes, needs to provide a small web browser for user. I used webBrowser component before, but it uses Internet Explorer engine and both of them sucks. I'm always using Firefox for web browsing and personally, I can't work with internet explorer. Is there any way for me to add firefox in my program?! please contact me if you need more information.

thanks

This happened about a year ago as well. Some version of FF causes my Macbook Pro to run VERY hot. I am doing nothing more with it than I usually do. This problem started up about a month or so ago. This doesn't happen with running any other browser. The PROBLEM is that I teach online and our software really only works with FF. It is a HUGE inconvenience to constantly be shutting down FF waiting and then booting it up again to only have to do the same thing 30 minutes later. What is up??

Left mouse pad not clicking/working after scrolling in firefox ,freezes this button and only right click will anywhere . Its almost as if the left button is frozen as sometimes when I move around the keypad I see the scroll button move up and down and I can not unclick it. Only restarting computer fixes issue.

The issue is only happening in firefox. I have been using opera with absolutely no touchpad issues. I love firefox and would love to use it but restarting my computer multiple times a day is not cutting it for me.

I have a dell xps 14z I am using firefox 15.0.1 .

When Firefox is open, I regularly (each few minutes) get a popup in the lower right-hand corner that solicits me to "Like" some story on Solon website. I've looked at the Firefox block popups settings but can't tell how and whether it can be setup to block these particular popups. I've emailed Solon about the popup but get no reply.
