Why does Gmail look so bad in Firefox 18? It looks like bad anti-aliased fonts

After upgrading to FF 18, my Gmail started to look blurry. I'm using Windows 7 and I have Cleartype on and I've tuned it well.

All other sites look alright. It's only FF 18 that started to look weird.

I downloaded Firefox 18.0 for mail.com mailcom - 2.2. It appears to be only in German; how do I change language to be US English.

There is a suggestion from mail.com to upgrade my Mozilla Firefox from version 18.0.1 to lastest version of Firefox optimized for mail.com (mail.com recommends using the latest version of Firefox for a faster and better web experience. This special Firefox edition includes: mail.com as startup page Bookmarks to all essential mail.com services Integrate mail.com as search provider mail.com Firefox extension authorized by Mozilla.)

The download URL link is: http://dl.mail.com/browser/firefox/mailcom_Firefox_Setup.exe

This downloaded file, when run, opens URL http://www.mail.com/browser/firefox/

The problem? The download update is in German, not US English. I am not literate in German. There is no obvious way to update the setup Firefox browser to US English.

Please help!!! Now I can't use my Firefox browser and am very unhappy and frustrated with my inability to access needed Internet web sites!!! Please provide me with instructions on how to navigate the Firefox 18.0 for mail.com mailcom - 2.2 browser to upgrade it to US English language.

I await a prompt response on how to rectify this problem, so that I am not restricted to using email on my smartphone!

I just updated to 18.0 yesterday. Since then, Facebook will crash FF upon login without fail. I can get to the main page (where I'd log in) but as soon as my home page starts to load, Firefox is unresponsive. I haven't noticed any issue with any other websites.

Flash and Java are all up to date, and I've checked my plug ins. I didn't have any issues with 17.xx, whatever was before 18 on the Release Channel. Any possible solutions/ troubleshooting I may have missed?

I'm running OSX 10.7.5, FF 18.0.

Lately Firefox does not load on my Vista--especially since update 18 happened. It shows that Firefox is running in the task manager but the page doesn't come up. This is every time I try to start the browser. It runs once I can get it to come up--but it never ever comes up the first time without going into task manager and finding the file it is in and starting it there as "administrator". This is very very annoying--before I uninstall and change browser back to Chrome which has its own issues--perhaps you can enlighten me as to how to fix this problem--it needs a patch? Don't tell me to dump history cookies etc. This I have already tried and it doesn't do anything--the problem persists. Any solutions for me? Thanks Lr

Hi, after the last reminder to update firefox, this "delta-search" has taken over my firefox.

This is the rubbish that comes up: http://www.delta-search.com/?affID=115892&tt=261112_yh_4812_3&babsrc=HP_ss&mntrId=a883be400000000000008ca98225286d

I have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox countless times. I have read the support reference to this issue in mozilla help, but there is no "babylon" installed on my computer. I have run virus, malware etc...scans which show no bad stuff. I am not savvy enough to know how to get into regedit and change this kind of stuff, although, from the support feedback this does not seem to solve the problem anyway.

I am really desperate now. I am a very long time firefox user and mozilla supporter and I do not know what has happened to my favorite web program.

I would be very, very grateful for some help please, otherwise, I will no longer be able to use firefox. Thank you kindly

I upgraded to Firefox 18 on my MacBook Pro a couple of days ago. Ever since, the fonts, both on display and in print, look rather bad.

-- Anything in bold is blurry on display, and almost impossible to read when printed. -- All fonts appear smaller, even though my default font size and minimum font size have not changed. -- I'm using Times for my serif font, but its use seems inconsistent from site to site. The only time font use is consistent is when I switch to Helvetica and/or change the proportional font to sans serif.

I typically leave "Allow pages to use their own fonts" off, because I prefer to read everything in serif. The issue, however, is there whether I leave that setting on or off.

I'm using OS 10.6.8 and Suitcase Fusion 3 to manage fonts.

Any suggestions?

I'm running Firefox 18.0.1 under Windows 7, all updates current, on a Dell M6700 I7, 2.77Ghz, 8Gig ram. When I first start Firefox, it runs fine. After about 30min, it gets slow. the bookmark memu takes several seconds to draw, sites take several seconds to load/reload. This was not a problem with the same version under Windows XP using even more plugins and extensions.

If I quit and restart Firefox, it runs fast for awhile, then slows down again.

I've tried turning off most extensions and plugins and the problem does not change.

A few days ago, Firefox updated itself to the 18.0.1 version. Now, each time Firefox updates itself, I tend to lose some of my preferences, those being: opening new tabs as a blank page, tabs being on the bottom, and showing my windows and tabs from last time. Usually, though, once I go and change these things back to the way I like them, they stay like that and I have no further problems.

However, this time Firefox won't save my preferences. The tabs go back to being on top, the tabs I last closed aren't there, and these tool bars I don't want keep appearing. Instead, three tabs are always there upon opening Firefox: Welcome to Firefox, Mozilla Firefox Start Page, and Yahoo! Toolbar. Also, when opening a new tab, the page says, "page does not exist" or something, and the URL is not even comprehensible, just random letters like someone bashed their head into the keyboard, something like: "jkfui87$^&%$$09."

I've tried resetting Firefox like it says in the "How to fix preferences that won't save" page, but it didn't help. As for deleting certain files from the profile folder, before I resetted Firefox, I only had "user" and "prefs" and "Invalidprefs" which weren't exactly what that self-helping page asked for so I didn't delete them. After I resetted Firefox I lost the "user" file, but I still have the other two. Should I try deleting them even if they're not exactly like the page describes? They are missing the ".js" part so I haven't felt comfortable messing with them.

Please give me some advice. I'm tired of having to go change my settings in "about:config" each time I open Firefox. But I really don't want to try anything that would delete my bookmarks or history, as I'm very dependent of them.

I’ve installed the latest version of FireFox & the Click-to-Play add in…but when I went to test it, it’s not blocking Flash videos…nor am I seeing the “lego” looking icon to the left of the address bar. This works at my office…but we’re all running Windows 7. The other office that we’re having problems with is running XP. Could that be why? I checked in about:config & it’s enabled. I’m just not sure where else to check. I saw that others were having the same problem...but no answer or resolution could be found.

After recently having a problem reinstalling my old bookmarks, I'm now wondering if there is a easy way to backup my very recent bookmarks, when I enter my bookmarks from the menu tab? I don't see a link within the bookmarks tab to do so. It would be nice to see a specific link within the bookmarks tab to do such a function. Does anyone have any solutions, or know a way to quickly backup my bookmarks? Thank you.

I recently just turned on my macbook pro and for some reason all of my screen capture add-ons are unable to save the complete page to the desk top. The funny thing is, the extensions function through the process without any error pop ups; however, when select to save the screen capture of the entire page to the desktop, nothing appears on the desktop or anywhere. I have never encountered this problem before, and I'm positive that I have done nothing to the macbook pro in terms of any customizations or alterations. If anyone else has encountered this issue before, I would be grateful for your input. The add-ons I have used are "Awesome Screenshot" and "Screen Grab [fix version]". I am able to save the full webpage as an html, save images individually, or download pdf and dmg files, but the screen captures just won't show up anywhere in the desktop or download folder or anywhere on the macbook pro
