These problems only occur when I access Facebook in Firefox. The same problems don't occur in Chrome.

I can view my Facebook message inbox, but when I try to open a message/message thread, it doesn't load. I just see the loading icon.

Similarly, if I try to use the icons in the top menu bar (notification icons on the left, arrow on the right), I don't get a drop-down if I click on them. If I click the notification icons on the top left, I should get a drop-down showing the recent activity, but instead it just switches to the icon showing that I don't have any new activity. If I click the arrow on the right, I should get a drop-down with account options, but instead it just takes me straight to the "General Account Settings" page.

I purchased a new computer about a month ago, and I've noticed pretty consistently when I try to reload the current page, I have to hit the reload button numerous times for the page to reload. Eventually the page does reload, but in the past with my old computer this was never a problem, just hit the reload button and the page very quickly was reloaded. Any reason as to why this is happening now with firefox 15, the version I'm now using with my new computer? Thank you.

After problems with security in all recent Java versions, which Mozilla had automatically disabled. Oracle released the fixed version of Java (7 update 7) which after uninstalling my current version (6 update 34?) I installed. Now I find that there is no Java to been seen on firefox (I have the lastest version). It's not in the plugin list and going to the Java website and running their online test (http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp) says that I do not have Java on my system. So I did the normal troubleshooting things mozilla recommends and I have still not had any luck! I've looked in regedit for any signs of Java v.6 but it seems to have been properly deleted with uninstallation, so I don't think its the old version causing the problem. I'm out of ideas. Is this a problem with the new Java release or is it firefox? Also note that I've tested IE (64bit) and it seems to have java.

Hello everyone!

I would like to open up some space in my bookmarks toolbar (also on the navigation toolbar if I can) by reducing the spacing between the icons. Is there any way to do this without the need of some third party program? If not, which one should I download?

Curious thing is that a few days ago I did not have this problem at all, all my bookmarks were visible in the toolbar regularly, neat and tight. Now there is that boring guillemet sitting there at the corner...

And this is the line where I thank you quite a bit for your interest towards my problem. So thank you very much:)

I've used the public forums on those websites to get support, and most people say that installing Firefox 14.01 will fix the problem. Where can I go to install Firefox 14.01? I'd prefer installing it here, on Mozilla.org, rather than going to a less reliable site.

I have a lot of duplicate bookmarks in Firefox and the number keeps on adding on. There are few answers regarding this on Support pages but none of them work. Neither the add-ons mentioned there(sad such trivial and basic things need add-ons) .

As there's no good way to sync Chrome and Firefox bookmarks I often end up manually importing in either browser from the other and after that I end up having tones of duplicates. I can deal with this in Chrome but have not figured out how to do this in Firefox. I think Sync ought to handle this.

Anyway, any quick solution regarding this? Preferably without an add-on (sigh!! one more thing to slow down the browser).

Firefox crashes multiple times hourly as I am working / browsing. Have tried to review other solutions already posted, including updating / disabling add-ons, reinstalling firefox, and creating a new session, followed by new profile. Seems to occur more frequently with google websites - have removed that as my homepage, but when playing pandora, it definitely goes down, as well as when using google maps. There appear to be random times on other sites where it will crash as well. I have submitted a number of crash reports, but it doesn't give me the opportunity each time - will frequently just close without giving me the crash dialogue. Help! Thanks!

First of all, the website in question(thepiratebay.se) works normal on IE with no issue. On Firefox however, attempts to click on 'ANYTHING' on this sites' webpage results in no effect. This includes the text/search box where the text indicator does not show up or any of the link on the page will not work. When mousing over the hyperlinks or objects on the page, the cursor does not change to a 'finger' and a small box area around the pointer jitters/pull the texts or graphics within it like a 0x magnifying glass that ran over the texts. Right-clicking anywhere on the page(text, blank or graphics) yield a flash applet menu with the first line(greyed out) indicating 'movie not loaded' and the second line 'About adobe flash player v11.4.402.256...'. These symptoms extends to all sub-pages of the site after skipping to them using Google search. This issue ONLY affects 'thepiratebay.se' thus far to my knowledge. I'm using Firefox v15.0 and recently updated the Flash plugin to the latest version before Firefox request and updated to 15.0. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Shockwave Flash browser plugin as well as clearing all cache/history/form/etc.. to no avail...
