Everywhere I click the cursor appears like I am going to write something. Idk if I did something or something changed but it is kinda annoying. I may not have noticed it doing this before for a long time but today I have been. It appear wherever I click at the start of a line. I have not changed a thing on my Firefox settings for the longest of time. The only thing I had to do recently was reset how I wanted it to search for updates and it even went back to it's setting I had it on before.

So is this a part of Firefox that is just now catching my attention or did something change?

So I have recently bought a new laptop with Windows 8, and I installed Firefox. For the most part it works fine but I have noticed, for some reason, some webpages do not load properly. It looks as if only the HTML of the site has loaded.

Now I can easily fix this by clearing the cache, but only for the same problem to occur a few hours later and this is really annoying me. The problem still happens in safe mode, and other browsers seem to work fine. I have also tried reinstalling but not a full reset.

Here is a link to what Facebook looks like when this happens: http://oi40.tinypic.com/2gwcbxk.jpg

Please could you help me solve this?

I have done all the recommended things on the blog. I have tried to remove any Adobe Flash that was in the machine(I wonder!). The processes are very complexed so I do wonder. My system is XP 3. I choose to run FireFox. I went through My Juno to no avail also, that uses Explorer. I don't find Adobe Flash in plug-ins but Shockwave Flash is there. I do have three out of date plug-ins, Adobe 8, Java Deployment Toolkit, and Java(TM) Platform. Most sights presume that all will be well after above has been done, but Oh No! Help would be appreciated.

When I download a file, I used to get an option to "save as", instead of just save. If I download a file I like to immediately download it into the appropriate folder on my desktop (not just one folder.) Instead I have to download it, go into the downloads folder and move it. I do a lot of downloading for work and this is just an extra step that I find so annoying. Is there a way to change this, or and "add on" feature to get "save as" as an option? I get this option on Internet Explorer, but I do not like using IE :(

can't move the screen image-display. I hover the mouse-arrow over the edge, to drag the screen inwards and it won't work. Neither the left side, nor the right, nor the top or bottom. I need to be able to do this because my monitor have a graphics error on the far right side of the screen-display that covers about two inches in width the whole length of the right side of my window screen image, so I can not see where to put my mouse cursor in order to scroll up and down. Plus, sometimes I want to make the window image shorter or longer again, and I can't even do that. It seems like it is a "settings" issue. Just don't know how to enable it. Please help.

My company has a custom developed ticketing system and of course its developed for IE but none of the engineers like IE. We all use and want to continue using Firefox. One of the sections in the ticketing system has a spot for links to local files on a shared drive. I have created the link and it points to a word document. That hyperlink works fine in IE but it does nothing when clicked in Firefox.

Of course the dev team is giving me the age old line ".NET doesn't play nice with Firefox... developed for IE.... blah blah use IE."

Surely creating a link to a local file like excel or word or even a directory is simple idea and should be accomplished somehow with FireFox right? Can anyone shed some light on this and give a suggestion how to make this work?

For example: N:\KNOWLEDGE BASE\Cisco Price List\2012\pricelistaugust2012.xlsx i am trying to share with a hyperlink like:

Looking for any suggestions on how to make this work. Thank you so much!!

googlegroups and twitch.tv won't load properly (no content displayed) cleared cookies/cache, nodnsprefetch=true, made sure no proxy, safemode, didn't help! The rough page layout works fine, but the actual tv-content (twitch) or the actual message texts (ggroups) won't show up. Also, clicking on the prefernces wheel in ggroups will display a small, empty box instead of a drop down menu filled with stuff. The pages all work properly in chromium.

Note that youtube and normal google search, freemail provider pages, news pages and basically all other pages i can think of work normally and 100%!

I'm using linux 64bit, firefox 22. This problem however, is not new, it happened with older ff versions too. I'm just tired of firing up chromium each time, so i decided to report it here to get a solution.

My Firefox on a windows 7 HP laptop updated today (June 25th) and the zoom adjusted, changing the font size, as well as icons and zoomed in on websites. I noticed in the list of changes for the program it says "improved rendering on high-res displays" is this the problem and is there anyway I can disable this? I was quite happy with the resolution before, and find this tacky and annoying...

When I downloaded Firefox's last update Firefox 22, Last night everything is now so zoomed in and big on this Firefox. Even the buttons seem bigger. I wanted to know how can I reset everything so it will look like the previous update of Firefox ?


Everyweb page I go to I have to zoom out twice just to get it back to its normal size now.

Is there also away to just change the webpage zoom and leave the buttons there current size. My brother likes how big the buttons on firefox it self is but not how far it's zoomed in on web pages.
