I am loving FF and the extensions.

However, I want the extensions to be put in the order that I want.

For example, there are some "active" extensions, such as AWESOME SCREEN SHOT, that I want to be displayed. There are some "passive" extensions, like SELF-DESTRUCTING COOKIES, that I want in the >> drop down menu, as I don't actually interact with them regularly.

Is this something that can be done?

I like Firefox. I'm running 33.1.1 on a year-old MacBook Pro running OS X 10.9.5. Here's the issue: I have noted that my MacBook Pro will begin to heat rapidly, and the fan will turn on - usually within 60-90 seconds of opening Firefox. Here's what I did so far: I scaled back the version of Flashplayer - still no difference. Then I started Firefox in "safe mode", and the problem did NOT re-occur. I restarted Firefox - Add-ons enabled, and the heating/fan started again. I "reset" Firefox, and it still occurs. I started it in "safe mode" again, and the problem does not re-occur. I have one add-on: AdBlock. As for plug-ins, they are all set to "Ask to Activate"

I thought at first that it was the AdBlock add-on, but this was not the case.

The webpage where I most frequently encounter this is nytimes.com, which is set as my homepage. If I move off that page into something random, like a Wordpress Page, the issue stops: the computer begins to cool and the fan turns off.

This has not occurred in Safari with nytimes.com loaded as the webpage. I left it running for 10 minutes, and no heat, no fan.

Is there a fix for this? Anyone else experienced this?

Every time I open Firefox, a small box moves up from the middle of the screen to the download progress arrow in the upper right corner of the Firefox window. I check the download progress window and nothing is downloading, but every time I open the application, it does this. It didn't use to happen. I am running Firefox 31.1 on a Mac. I just updated to 31.1.1.

I just upgraded to a newer used laptop, the first to use Windows 7, for me. This is my first day, so I still have a lot to learn. I went to open Facebook, but the loggin page font was so tiny. It looked like the page had shrunk. Not all sites do this. YouTube will have a normal size video screen, but all the list at the right is similarly like a 2 point font, unreadable. I opened the control panel to adjust the font size there. It made all the Windows based pages quite large, but did not change my browser.

What??? I clicked the button on this page to automatically add a troubleshooter and a window opened to install Sinc or something. that didn't seem right?

Under about:preferences#security, you can choose what sites can download add-ons without you needing to allow it thru the Exceptions button by Warn Me When Sites Try To Install Add-ons

The defaults are; marketplace.firefox.com and addons.mozilla.org

But every time Firefox is restarted, this list is deleted. Even resetting Firefox does not fix this. I deleted the prefs.js file, but no joy. I checked, and found this enter in the file, but it will not display when Firefox is started.

dom.mozApps.signed_apps_installable_from;https://marketplace.firefox.com

I even downgraded from Firefox 34.0.5 to 33.1.1 but the issue is still there.

As far as I can tell, this is the only setting that is having trouble.

I am unable to stop FF from requiring the User Account Control dialog box before it will load. I uninstalled and reinstalled a clean copy, which worked the first time, and then re-established the UAC dialog on subsequent starts. This is incredibly annoying. It has never happened before with FF. How do I stop this behavior? I will stop using the damn program if this can't be fixed.

Some of the vertical lines in the fonts are double width like a mixture of bold and normal font weight. I have hardware accellaration disabled. The problem is not fixed when I change default font settings. The problem is not resolved be resetting zoom to 0.

Inspect Element identifies the problem happens when the website selects open Sans. If I stop sites selecting fonts and force the defaults I don not get the problem. Therefore the problem is with Firefox 33.1 rendering certain fonts specified by websites.

My machine is windows vista and Open Sans is not shown in the font list. However this was not a problem with previous versions of Firefox.

I did need to do a reset of firefox parameters during the upgrade to 33 so maybe ther eis some other parameter which needs changing to help render fonts which are not loaded on the machine?

Firefox is not allowing me to interact with certain elements on webpages. Here is a list of some of the websites that I have trouble with:

- http://railsapis.codeschool.com/levels/1/challenges/1 and http://railscasts.com/episodes/417-foundation?autoplay=true

 I can't use the video controls

- https://soundcloud.com/jo-o-anderson-1/loreen-euphoria

 I can't use the seekbar.

- http://yashry.com/search?q=iPhone

 The arrows of the price range slider don't drag. Instead, the underlying text is selected.

I tried using Firefox on a friend's Mac and it's working properly. I guess it's a problem with an entry in my about:config, but I don't even know what to search for to describe this problem.

I'm using Firefox 33.1.1 on Mac OS X 10.10.1 (14B25).

It' very annoying and can you please tell me how to stop it. It's only started happening recently. Thanks - I hope
