Hi,

whenever I try to download any file of any type with Firefox 32.0.3 on my iMac running OS X Mavericks 10.9.5 logged in with a controlled user account, I get a message "failed" in the downloads window. The downloaded files are always empty and I have to remove them manually. For information, I've installed Firefox using my controlled user account.

If I log in with an admin user account, Firefox successfully downloads the files.

Your help is much appreciated !

Hi. After updating Firefox, I keep getting error messages with some sites. Sometimes it says '404 - Error', sometimes it opens up a Yahoo Search page saying 'DNS Solution Yahoo Error' and a list of strange sites it found, sometimes it's a Google page saying '404. That’s an error. The requested URL /gtm.js?id= was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

When the browser crashes, it's feasible that some of the data from sensitive web apps or sites could be included in a crash report. As such some enterprises want reporting disabled if the browser is being used to access sensitive data. Other than disabling Crash reporting from the UI, I can't seem to locate a configuration line to disable crash reporting - I can set breakpad.reportURL to null and to set HKCU\Software\Mozilla\Firefox\Crash Reporter\SubmitCrashReport = 0 (on windows) each time the user logs in. Is there a way to disable crash reporting permanently so that when a new profile is created it's not re-enabled?

In Mac OS X 10.9 using Firefox 32.0.3, had to deactivate Shockwave Flash Plug-in due to constant freezes. Is there a fix?

I have iMac running Mac OS X 10.9.5. After updating to Firefox 32, I started noticing hangs when visiting pages with Flash ads – or ad scripts in iframes or from ad networks. Usually, Firefox would freeze then an error message would pop up stating something like this:

script: chrome://browser/content/browser.js:16853

I tried restarting Firefox app, restarting computer, starting Firefox in Safe Mode, deleting Firefox preferences and repaired disk permissions to no avail.

I then looked in Max OS X's Activity Monitor to see what processes were hanging.

Every time Firefox froze the Firefox Shockwave Flash process was "not responding." Even after Force quitting process, Firefox app would still be frozen. I tried reinstalling Flash plug-in, Shockwave plug-in and Firefox app. Not until I disabled the Shockwave Flash plugin did Firefox stop freezing.

Firefox 32.0.3 Flash version 15.0.0.152 iMac running Mac OS X 10.9.5

When I open links in new windows it will display on the same monitor. In the past this had opened on the last monitor Firefox had been closed on. I have tired moving the screen over and closing on my second monitor, it worked in the past but does not anymore. I noticed this issue with the release of 32. I compare a lot data so not having to move the window to the other monitor would make my day easier. Thank you.

I got a message I thought was from Mozilla Firefox saying I have to update Adobe Flash Player. I did and ended up with Astromenda.

I went to control panel/programs and Features, found Astromenda, and uninstalled it. I then adjusted my options for my Firefox homepage and got rid of Astromenda on the open of Firefox. However, if I hit the "+" on the tab for a new tab I get a Astromenda search tab. I went to "searchplugins" in the Firefox profile and found Astromenda.xml and replaced with safesearch.xml. Didn't help, Astromenda is still there when I add a new tab.

I go to the web and found websites on how to get rid of Astromenda but they want me to download various adware cleanup tools but I am reluctant to download anything at this point unless it is sanctioned by Mozilla Firefox.

Thank you

OK, ever since I upgraded to Firefox 32, whenever I skipped to a part of a video I like, including intros for videos like Angry German Kid videos, etc, the gray bar would stop moving. I want Mozilla to fix this and this was not resolved for 32.0.1. I hope this gets fixed for Firefox 33. I have tried Safari and Google Chrome and the gray bar does not stop moving. Please help.

I feel like this is such a silly questions but for the life of me I cannot find the answer. The first time I opened the browser console (Ctrl+Shft+J) it was docked to the bottom of the webpage I was viewing. For some reason it has undocked itself and opens in a new window every time I open it now.

How do I get the browser console to dock at the bottom of the page again?
