Hi there,

Since updating to the latest version of Firefox (v18) can't get Norton toolbar or Norton vulnerability protection to work ? Can you please advise which version of Firefox is compatible with Norton 360 and how I might install it ? Many thanks -

Kind Regards,

I'm having trouble understanding why h/w acceleration is not supported for my graphics card. I have an 'Intel(R) G33/G31 Express Chipset Family' internal card. Firefox says 'Blocked for your graphics driver version' under troubleshooting information. I'm running Firefox 18 beta under Win8x64. So, here's the trouble. When i was running Windows7x64, h/w acceleration was available only under chrome & that was limited too. I never really complained because i understood my card was about 5 years old. When i moved to Windows8, i was planning on getting a new graphics card, but to my surprise Intel had released new drivers for this version of windows & suddenly i was getting full acceleration under IE & Chrome & Adobe flash is also playing h/w accelerated videos. It would be helpful if someone could tell me why only Firefox seems to have a problem.

This just began to happen yesterday. I have a MacBook Pro 10.7.5. I can always get to the first page that I open in a new browser, but any page after that that I try to open in a new tab will seem to load but the page is blank. This does not just happen with one website I have tried myriad of different sites.. only the first tab loads in a new browser. I am having to open a new browser if i want to go to another link - very frustrating..

My FF decided on 12/1/2012 to open in browser, overriding my settings. No matter what I do, how I change settings, PDFs open in FF. I even totally uninstalled Acrobat 11 and reinstalled Acrobat 10. Still opens in browser (so does that mean it's FF causing the problem?)

My settings in FF were to open in Reader, overridden. Changed to save file. Overriden. No matter what I do, PDFs open in FF. My settings in FF for years have been to open in Adobe, but now I cannot find the setting!

So now, haha, PDF opens in FF and FLASH is mucked up. So I've increased the problems and spent an hour and a half. Can you help? What am I (or they) doing wrong?

If I have a link in the clipboard, anytime I scroll down with the touchpad there is a chance for Firefox to unexpectedly follow the link. But it's totally random. This is a problem, because it usually happens when I'm reading something and I have to go back and try to find what I was reading.

Hi. I've recently performed a clean install of Mountain Lion in my MBP. I noticed a quick degradation in my battery time and started to verify if it was due to some application. Sadly I noticed that FF 18 was causing that drainage. I switched to Safari 6 and immediately saw the impact on my battery estimated time. Final note: on both browsers I have installed plugins to stop flash animations from playing automatically and to block unwanted ads.

Has any one noticed the same behavior?

Thanks. Pedro

I want to make the location bar much smaller and the search bar much bigger (I still want them to use the entire width of the toolbar). I read elsewhere in the forums that you can change the size of the bar by going to CUSTOMIZE and once the cursor changes to a re-size cursor, simply click and drag. However, that only worked for me with previous versions of Firefox. Since I've had to upgrade, the cursor remains a hand and never changes to the re-size arrow.

I've had this problem for quite a while. The downloads don't actually download. Nothing comes up in my downloads folder (and I've checked where they are supposed to be stored, I am checking the right place). In my downloads popup through the Firefox client, if I right click any download, both "Open" and "Open containing folder" are greyed out. I have tried using both Firefox 18 and the current Nightly client, and have reinstalled multiple times.
