Hi, My Firefox plug-in check is telling me that there is an update for Java, but when I visit the link it's still taking me to the old update (the Java 7 update 9). Also, according to the Java test page, Java 7u9 is still showing that it's the latest...it says I have the recommended version.

Is there an newer update somewhere?

Thanks.

Just updated to FF17.0 and the fonts look awful, something like when the ClearType is enabled in Windows. I have ClearType disabled cause I hate the look of the fonts with it enabled, and now Firefox looks like it's all over it. Font is like bolded. What happened? Can I disable it somewhere in Firefox?

hi all

Having updated to Firefox 17.0 (from 16.0.2), for some reason I don't get warned when closing multiple tabs any more.

I've confirmed the relevant options are selected and am 100% certain this was working fine before updating Firefox today.

I've replicated the problem on my vista 32bit platform and on XP 32 bit too.

I also looked at the changelog for Firefox 17 but can't see any explanation for this change in behaviour, although I wonder whether this might have something to do with it "772319 No option to disable the "Close other tabs" prompt."

As I use Tab Mix Plus (add-on), I've also checked Firefox in safemode and have found the native tab warnings not working, so have concluded it's an issue with Firefox (rather than something to do with an extension).

I've checked "about:config" and "browser.tabs.warnOnClose" is set to true, as is "browser.tabs.warnOnCloseOtherTabs".

Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks,

Gary

Not really a question, more of a plea...

Firefox 18.0 crawls on my machine. Not the browsing as such; that's only a little slower than 17.0.1 (still noticeable). I'm talking about opening and traversing menus and entering text in text fields on sites. I had to go back to 17.0.1 as it was just too annoying. This is on Linux Mint Debian Edition (Debian Testing), using the nl localized Firefox downloaded from the Mozilla site. Switching off extensions and/or using a new profile didn't help. If this doesn't get any better in following versions, I'll have to look for another browser when 17.0.1 becomes too old. Please don't make me do that. I've just tried Chrome and quite frankly, it's a bit of a joke...

Since updating Firefox to the latest version (17.0), the fckeditor has stopped working on my website. It will open but there are no icons and I cannot type anything. If there was text there before, it doesn't show up when opening the fckeditor.

It works fine in Internet Explorer and was working earlier today in Firefox before I upgraded Firefox.

Hoping somebody can help.

I love Firefox. On my laptop ( ASUS UX32VD-DB71 ) Firefox auto updated from 17.0.1 to 18.0 and the stability is very poor. Crash occurs nearly immediately or a few seconds after launch every time. Adblock plus is the only addon and disabling it makes no difference. Although, Firefox 18 Safe mode does work without crashing, interestingly. I uninstalled and downgraded back to 17.0.1 and full stability is back. Version 18 and 18.0.1 are not ready in my opinion. I have not tried using a fresh profile.

UPDATE: FireFox 18.0.1 is also buggy and broken.

Ordinarily I can use twitter no problem with Firefox. But now all of a sudden it logs me in, and takes me to pages but will not allow me to post tweets, reply to others, or retweet or log out or send direct messages. So basically I cannot do anything unless I use internet explorer, where it seems to work. I don't want to use IE or I wouldn't have Firefox! It is not my twitter account because the same thing happens on other accounts logged in on this pc. I have tried downloading a new version of firefox, removing all twitter cookies and everything else. My account and firefox work on the "Tweetdeck" site but not the actual twitter site. Is there anything I can do because you cannot email twitter (well, I don't have an email address that works for them!! )

My desktop is running Windows 8, which recently crashed. Since then, every time I start up, Firefox 17.1 (which is in the startuo folder) does not load, but brings up an error window saying (Couldn't load XPCOM). Dismissing the window then allows me to start Firefox myself. I have uninstalled Firefox (but not the personal stuff), downloaded a new copy of Firefox 17.1 and re-installed.... same thing happens.

Just to clarify ..... this only happens once, following the initial boot up of the desktop. I dismiss the error window and all is well after that.

Any bright ideas please?

What is XPCOM referring to? A missing dll file? can I find this file elsewhere and move it to the correct location?

Many regards.

As stated, I can get all the way to being able to join a channel, but I don't any 'chatting' going on. I can see the user list, I can see the MOTD, I can do a listing, but no incoming traffic from the channel. I installed mIRC just to see, but same thing. I am thinking that there is some generic setting common to both clients that I am missing somehow, but I really don't know.

Is this a common error that I might be making? Is it a connectivity issue, or similar?

There is not a lot of info regarding this specific problem that I can find.

What do you guys think?

(This is a repost of my question. I reposted as all the formatting was lost and now it's a mangled mess that is hard to read.)

I opened "Help > About Firefox" to check which version I was running.

It said 16.0.2 and "You are currently on the release update channel."

Then while I was watching it upgraded to 17.0.

1. Now "Tools > Add-ons" no longer works.

2. I thought 17.0 was a beta. If so why did it download it when I'm on the release channel?

3. when I go to http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/fx/ and click the big green "Firefox Free Download" button it downloads this 16.0.2 version:

http://www.mozilla.org/products/download.html?product=firefox-16.0.2&os=win&lang=en-US

which again implies that I should be on 16.0.2, not 17.0

Thanks!
