Firefox is basically useless at the moment. I cannot lose another work day due to this issue. I'm on Windows 7 and just updated to Firefox 37.0.2 two days ago. Since the update, scripts have been slowing down page loading to almost nil. I haven't loaded anything new to my browser in the last two weeks. I'm not going to sit around testing a bunch of crap so please don't even suggest it. Either someone has a fix for this issue or please tell how to go back to the previous version of Firefox. If I don't have this problem resolved by the end of the day, I'm done with Firefox.

New Firefox user. Frequently I visit text only page- data strings are quite long. The default view for text only appears to be "Wrap Long Lines", which defeats the sorted information by line. Fortunately I found Page Style under View when I turned on Menu Bar. But when I revisit or refresh the page it defaults back to the word wrap, its getting old. Is there a way to change the default to "Basic page style"..or turn off word wrap, permanently. I looked under options but just havent seen a way to change this. Thanks

How can I get Firefox to search my computer for plugins that are already there?

Adobe's Flash player is already on my computer from IE 8. How can I get Firefox to see that it is already on my PC and use it so I don't have to download it again and possibly create other problems. Also, in my efforts to download Flash, Firefox activated IE which made me concerned that proceeding WOULD cause problems our just leave me where I am now where IE can use Flask but Firefox cannot.

Hey Team,

I am having issues setting the defaults of Firefox for all users within our Managed Desktop environment. I have read we can use a mozilla.cfg and a local-settings.js. THough it doesnt seem to be working. I also read about the grepref all.js file. But i cannot seem to see that on our install anywhere.

Can you please assist in helping us setup default preferences for all users who connect across our terminal servers. The links i have used as references are below: http://ilias.ca/blog/2005/03/locking-mozilla-firefox-settings/ http://kb.mozillazine.org/Locking_preferences

Any help would be great.

On YouTube and other video sites, most videos are always way more low in contrast then in Internet Explorer and Chrome.
A animation I made is a good example of that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OlrLzNj4z0
In Firefox the contrast is too low ... or the black is bleached, I don't know the right English words for it.
But the same video in Internet Explorer is as it is suppose to be, it is showing like the original on my PC. And both are in HTML5 view.
This is not only on my PC (Windows 8.1 64 bit): at work I see the same behaviour too on Windows 7 64bit.
Hope this is hoping to be fixed soon?

When I used a different system, i created links on my home page by simply right clicking on the page and selecting the option to create a shortcut. I do not have that option with mozilla. I want it and cannot find an answer anywhere on how to make it happen. Clearly, right clicking is not an option with mozilla, so what is the process?
