Ever since the last "update" 33.1 then 33.1.1 I've been unable to just clink a link in a Google search and a new tab opens why? Is it because Firefox is no longer going to use Google as it's prime search engine and it's a sneaky way of getting people to use Yahoo?

I have a sneaking suspicion that it is the Status-4-Evar add-on bar that is messing with graphics when I try to access photos on sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. So, I've disabled it, but I want to still have the status bar. Is there a way to get the status bar back without Status-4-Evar? I've downloaded the add-on bar, but it doesn't show the green status bar.

Hello, when I try to save certain .png files on firefox they save corrupted and cannot be opened or uploaded anywhere. (It does not give me an error when I save, only when I try to open what I saved)

For example: any of the pictures on here: http://ladyflash.livejournal.com/23577.html#comments

It is only certain pngs, and certain websites. If I open the same page in chrome I have no problems with saving and opening the file.

About a week ago, FF updated to 33.1.1. Since then it started with being always welcomed to the new version of FF. I then could not change my preferences. I have done complete uninstalls (using Revo) and fresh installs with no success - FF continues to open with all my bookmarks, etc intact. I have backed up all my settings, etc using FEBE.

Then this morning, FF will not open at all. I have tried to open the Profile Manager using the full path but it will not open either.

I have run out of ideas, and can find nothing extra on the net. I love FF, but may have to move to Chrome (or ...) if this can't be fixed.

As FF isn't running, I can't seem to run the Troubleshooting utility to give you more info ... :(

Hi, I am looking for advice for the best, compatible AD-BLOCKER add on for FF version 33.1.1

I am finding that web pages dont load, just hang or "connection timed out" and I'm thinking its because of my ad blocker add on I'm using. I did go to addons and searched for the latest ad blocker, however, I dont think the one I got yesterday is working. So....all that said, what would be the BEST ad blocker add on for the version FF I have? Thanks

ANytime I open firefox and go online to fill any form it hangs repeatedly. I have re installed, updated, reset, turned off hardware acceleration and many other so called fixes all to no avail. I m running a few month old windows 7 pc. As far as I can tell everything is up to date. How I manage to work around the problem is to open task manager by pressing alt,ctrl,del and then click cancel. In many cases functionality returns in many other cases it doesnt and I repeat this process until it does. Often when it doesnt fix the issue the screen is all black when I call up the task manager. I may call the task manager 10-15 times before it stops hanging. Does anyone have a clue what is happening or how I can find out. It has hung 6 times - 7 times on this form so far.

I just bought a new PC and transferred my Firefox Profile from an external drive to my new PC after downloading Firefox. Everything is fine (all my bookmarks and extensions are there), but Firefox will no longer save my passwords, nor were any "saved" from my old profile. I can sign into websites, but no "save password" prompt appears on the page. I'm not in Private Browsing mode. I restarted FF in safe mode and turned off hardware acceleration and still no save prompt.

Web sites are increasingly using annoying, distracting - and beyond that, harmful scrolling photos and graphics. Some of us are getting dizzy, experiencing headaches, and feeling nauseated when on web sites that have negligently incorporated that technology. I am very upset at being made to feel ill and not being given a *choice* of whether I want to see that harmful content or not. Please let me know if there is a way to turn it off and how to do it. Thanks.

NOTE: When people are *developing* "feature" for web sites, instead of thinking how "cutesie" something will be, the *most* important consideration is whether it is going to be harmful to others or not - harmful includes, physical and emotional distress, distraction, headaches, etc. Forget the "cutesie" how "cool" factor, and let's act like adults - the bottom line is healthful efficiency!

Mailto client works now after deleting the mime types folder and changing about:config mailto to default. Now when I get to my mail and start opening, or deleting messages the compose mail window opens. It does this at random. Sometimes it is fine, others not. It was doing this before the previous issue of mailto missing problem. There must be another value not set right. Let me know how to fix this.
