http://www.southernpersuasion.com I have maintained this site for years. Recently, rather than post pictures on a photo storage provider and post them to facebook, I have posted them to facebook and then linked to them from this site (select the Pictures link). When I click on a link, I get a blank page in the frame. When I right click on the link and select Open New Tab, or Open New Window it comes up. I don't think I've messed up the html... in fact, I think I just changed the links from previous entries that were actually linked to PhotoBucket or the like. What is wrong, and how can I fix it? Thanx.

I have Windows 8 with Firefox. I have no idea how it happened, but Ask.com has hijacked my home page. I do not have the Ask.com toolbar. There is no Ask program in my Programs and Features in the Control Panel. There are no Add-ons in Firefox Extensions or Plug-ins, and no New Tab. I've run Malwarebytes and it doesn't find anything. I'm totally lost. Thanks.

Hi!

HTML5 is great and I hope to get rid of Flash as soon as possible. That said, something is still bothering me when I play an HTML5 video (on youtube for instance): the screensaver is still on even though I'm full-screen.

Is there a config I missed or is it a bug within Firefox?

(I'm using Arch Linux with GNOME)

my theme is only showing behind the toolbar (tabs, search bars,etc.) when i go to the "Mozilla Firefox start page", my theme is still only in the toolbar, and the rest of the page is white. My theme is also only showing such small pieces of the theme chosen that most of the time you cant even tell that it is a fox in the corner. Is there a way for me to make my theme appear across the full screen?

Sound not working for some websites

Hello,

I can't listen to the music on the following websites:

http://www.cede.ch/en/music/?branch_sub=1&view=detail&id=896510&branch=1 http://estastonne.bandcamp.com/album/live-in-odeon-2011

I use the first a lot of, so it's really annoying. I have already searched and I think the problem has to do with firefox. I have a linux system. When I try to play the music I see the time counter which works perfectly, the only problem is: I have no sound. If I install firefox 25, I have no problem. With firefox 26 or firefox 27 it doesn't work. With the same configuration (plugins for example) if I switch to firefox 25 everything is fine. I have already tried to clear the cache, but it doesn't help. I have no more idea.

If anybody has an idea it would be great!

Thank you

After upgrading to the new version, 27.0.1, my right-click function to Open link in New Tab stopped working. I cannot open in new window either. When I click the link that I would like to open in new tab or window, the right click window appears, I click on the desired function, and the right click window closes and nothing happens.

I have also noticed that there are many additional functions that now appear on the right-click window, eg.

Play, Pause, Mute, Unmute, etc. Reload image, View Image, View Video, etc. This Frame, View Selection Source, etc.

They could have been there but I do not remember these functions available before. They may have been BUT it may just be the case of not really noticing them because everything worked and now that I can't open new tabs/windows, I now notice them. Not sure if this is related to the issue or not. I have the following extensions running:

ColorZilla 2.6.4.1 Dictionary.com 2.0.0 Firebug 1.8.4 InstantFox 2.8.7

I did disable them to see if they may have been causing the issue but the problem still exists.

Hopefully someone can figure this out because I may need to switch browsers until this gets resolved. Unfortunately not too efficient!

Thanks!

Hello,

Whenever I want to visit www.google.com or www.youtube.com, I receive the massage: "Connection is not secure"

"You have asked Firefox to put up with www.youtube.com, a secure connection but we can not confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally websites will show trusted identification when you want to set up, to prove that you are going to the right place a secure connection. The identity of this website can not be confirmed."

This problem just showed up recently, and I haven't changed anything in my FireFox settings. Is there any way to solve this problem?

Kind regards, Gerben

I have used FF for some time and the earlier versions were fine. Since updating the pages are too large, I need to zoom out at least two stops to achieve the previous size onscreen, and it's a nuisance to do this for every single page. How can I set it to the previous size?
