Every time I try to log in to my bank's secure website with Firefox at https://www.huntington.com/ I get a grey triangle icon with exclamation point and the message when I hover over is "This website does not provide identity information". But when I open the same website in Internet Explorer there is no warning and it shows as being fully secured. The same thing happens intermittently when I browse to ebay's secure log in.

I continually get the developer tools appearing when I am trying to navigate FF. This only happens when I am using my trackpad, and seems, somehow, to be related to moving it from right to left. I can't find any way of making that consistent though. FF37.0.1 and Windows 8. Doesn't seem to be related to any add ons... all the developer tools (devtools.*.enabled) are set to false (so why the inspector keeps popping up I do not know). Never a problem when using the mouse - only the track pad.

After removing some adware I got yesterday, Firefox is still somehow buggy.

I've made deep scans in my drives with several anti-malware programs and with antivirus; and I've uninstalled Firefox, deleting the old profiles too, and made a new clean install.

However, when installing NoScript and/or Ghostery add-ons, they don't seem to work. I think this might be caused because of traces of the malware that I got recently.



Here are the problems:

-NoScript 2.6.9.21: the add-on shows no options, instead shows blank spaces. It seems to be blocking all the javascript, notice how YouTube doesn't show at all. (Img #1). When disabling the add-on and restarting Firefox, all websites with Javascript show well again. So, the add-on seems to be working, but not being configurable.

-Ghostery 5.4.3: the Ghostery button on the sidebar doesn't appear, and I can't figure out how to make it appear. Furthermore, in the add-ons page, if I click ghostery settings, what I get is a blank page. (Img #2)


I've tried to install the add-ons both from the developer page and from the Firefox add-ons page. I've even tried with older versions of the add-ons, just to make sure it wasn't a version issue.



I think I might be missing something, what do you think I can do to solve these problems?

In case you need them, got the scan logs of the antispyware and antivirus programs, and can post a HJT log.

I have tried following the advice offered in the few different threads I have found on this but nothing fixes it. I want the cursor to be in the address bar when I open a new window and/or when firefox opens without restoring a previous session. I fixed the issue for new tabs via about:config but this doesn't work for new windows. I tried safe mode and the problem persists. In new private windows the cursor is in the address bar.

OS: MacOS Yosemite 10.10.3. Can't access the webpage http://www.callutheran.edu/Academic_P.../lzipmast.htm which uses a PDB plugin. I don't know if there are any plugins for this format (s?), in FireFox or anything else for that matter. Safari reports that "the file sype is not specified", so perhaps there's an error in the webpage itself (humor: "those sloppy biologists with their $5 million-plus electron microscopes, but they don't know anything about computers..")

This question's been asked before but I didn't actually find the answer. Thing is I'd like to add icons to my bookmark as in IE. I know sites with favicons automaticly loads the icon. I have sites (my router and other stuff) with no favicons so I'll have to add those manually. Now how do I do that? (Maybe the only way is to create the bookmarks in IE and then import 'em but that would be 1 - 0 to IE :-)

Hi everyone. I've made an add-on for spellchecking in Asturian language, based on Hunspell (https://addons.mozilla.org/es/firefox/addon/correutor_asturianu/?src=ss), but when I install the xpi, I can't enable it in the right button-menu. Is it possible that the reason of that is because it is not "labeled" as an official dictionary (https://addons.mozilla.org/es/firefox/language-tools/)? In case that this is the reason, how or/and where must I request that? Thanks in advance! Regards!

Newly installed Firefox and it doesn't boot up! Safe Mode works and I've tried the "Firefox crashes - Troubleshoot, prevent and get help fixing crashes" list of solutions to no avail. There is one add-on called HP Smart Web Printing 4.60 that is listed as incompatible with Firefox 37.0.1 which I deleted. Didn't work. I then disabled/ set to never activate all plug-ins listed. To no avail. Found out about Waterfox for 64 bit OS. That too crashed. I am out of options. What is going on?

Every now and then, when I click a link on hotmail or websites, referring to an email address, the browser opens up new tags in a very fast sequence... about 500 in ten seconds. It would not stop by itself. Initially, i closed the browser, changed the settings during the next startup of the browser, to "When Firefox starts show blank page" Usually, the setting is on "show windows from last time". After three or four events, this procedure did not work any more. I had to reboot. Now, I had to uninstall firefox and reinstall to stop the windows from popping up. If this goes on, I have to find another browser. I tried windows explorer... did not happen there!

I really hope you can help
