Hi, can someone help with a fix for this please? When using firefox today on a win 8.1 laptop, I am only getting a 'text' framework on a page and none of the links work. I have looked at the 'view settings 'page style' is on 'basic' and 'encoding' is set to 'unicode. I have restarted both firefox and the machine to no avail. Clues; Pages which open as pdf do so correctly, and one page which isn't a https address-just www. displays as it originally did although it is a text only page. All was fine when I put the machine to sleep last night. Any help appreciated.TY.

Operating system: OS X 10.9

Starting about four months ago, I began to see untitled and non-selectable windows spawning after my browser had been open for a while (i.e. after I visited a few sites). The number of these invisible windows grows over time, but are removed if I close the browser and start a new session. This has persisted through many new versions of Firefox.

I tried turning off all of the add-ons. Still happened.

I tried keeping track of what sites caused the problem. No correlation.

Today I uninstalled Firefox, using AppZapper -- which should have removed everything -- then did a new install. The only thing that I imported were bookmarks from the backup directory in my old Profile folder.

...and it's happening again. Here is a screen shot: http://imgur.com/ojcODd1

Any help would be appreciated.

This started happening after I began using the fullscreen mode and split screen view on the new OS X El Capitan.

I don't know what I did, but the history/downloads/bookmarks window (the one that pops up when you click "Show All History", etc.) is now permanently stuck in fullscreen. It takes up the entire screen, and it disables the menu bar and the Dock as a normal fullscreen would -- but it is clear this is a bug, since I can somehow move it around (see screenshot). No title bar pops up when I move my cursor to the top of the screen, and the usual Control-Command-F shortcut for toggling fullscreen doesn't seem to work.

How can I fix this?

I have an old Toshiba satellite laptop that is running win 7 and FF 42.0. I have always had a problem with the text on certain web pages (including the text I'm typing right now) being so light that I can hardly read it. I can't include a screen shot because I don't seem to have Paint on this computer. Does anyone know how I could remedy this? Thank you.

I have read the thread about the blank screen in Windows 10 after awaking from sleep, but I am experiencing the problem even when the computer is always awake. This was an in-place upgrade from Windows 7 and it is the only problem that I have encountered. The system has an Ivy Bridge motherboard with a Core i7 4770K processor, 8 gb of ram. Video is a Radeon HD 7850. I am running the current version of Firefox and have the newest video driver. If I have Firefox open and walk away for a few minutes, I frequently come back to find the window blank. I can click on the upper right corner and close the window and everything is OK on restart of Firefox, at least until it goes blank again. Turning off hardware acceleration hasn't seemed to work for others.

Under Windows 7 I select 1024 x 768 for screen resolution and 125% for text size.

What codes should I add to userChrome.css?

Also, I would like to increase the default font sizes of the about:??? pages and the Help > Troubleshooting Information page, so that I don't need to zoom them.

I just got assaulted by the new Quantum 57.0.4 it is BLINDING. I am shouting sorry as I can barely see. My eyes are smarting and tearing and I can hardly read the tabs, the contrast between the dark tab and the name of the tab in a sort of muted white or grey makes the print difficult to read -- and any red fades out (as is natural in the dark, it's physics). So the screen is extremely bright, like white light, and the tabs are extremely dark, the letters obscured, any red logos tend to be muted into the dark, and I have a sudden splitting headache. I was fine with the previous Firefox. I just checked Safari -- I'm fine. I think this is a health issue.

The numbers are registering correctly if I accesss the site using Microsoft Edge. Is this an incompatability between Firefox and Windows 10, or do I need to change a setting somewhere.

In both versions 34. and 35. when I go to any Google site I get a pop-up box "Opening" with a message about opening 'application/octet-stream' and asking what should Firefox do with it. This never happened to me in version 33. and I have scoured the message boards looking for others reporting this problem but can't find it so must be something with my system config but I don't know how to troubleshoot it. Running Windows 8.1, Kaspersky virus protection on a Dell Envy AMD A10 processor ... I like Firefox and don't want to stay on version 33 so any help is appreciated.

I run a forum that uses Invision Power Board as the forum software. In Firefox 35.1 and below, when replying to a thread or starting a new thread, text would be correctly displayed like this: -

http://i.imgur.com/woze0ip.jpg

In Firefox 36, once you hit the right hand edge of the box that you type your post into, rather than it automatically moving down to the next line, it just continues on to the right and a horizontal scrollbar appears, like this: -

http://i.imgur.com/xkVP5Ck.jpg

I have tried upgrading to the latest beta version of Firefox 37, but the problem remains. I have also tried restarting Firefox in safe mode, with all extensions disabled, but it's the same. As soon as I downgrade back to 35.1 again, it works fine.

Is this a bug in Firefox? Is there an advanced setting I can change somewhere so that this doesn't happen?

Thanks!
