Hello,

I am running the newest update for firefox (Version 38.0.1) on Mac OS Version 10.6.8. When I open a new window in firefox, the close, maximize, and minimize buttons are located in the top left corner, as usual. However, if I enter fullscreen mode on a video, and then exit, the buttons are not there. They are not simply invisible - clicking in their usual location has no effect.

Thanks, ReOsIr

This morning I tried to open a website that I use regularly to remotely wake my work PC. It has a password prompt but Firefox knows the password so I don't see that come up. This morning when I try and open the website Firefox simply closes. No crash report is generated. When I re-open I get asked if I want to start in Safe Mode or Refresh Firefox. Neither make any difference, same thing happens.

The address opens fine in Chrome and Explorer.

Whats going on!?

Good morning,

In Iceweasel 38.01 I cannot permanently deactivate the extensions toolbar. There is not a single button on it and the option from the context-menu operates normally. But the toolbar reappears each time upon starting up the browser. I cannot locate a second configuration- or customization option, nor the pertinent help-text, if there is one, which allowed me to permanently get rid of the useless toolbar.

Thank you for any hints.

I realize this problem has been dealt with throughout the forums, but no one has presented an answer that has fixed it :(

Firefox is changing the spellchecker language when I want to compose a Gmail message.

--I have add-ons in Firefox of other language packs/dictionaries. --It's not Gmail doing this --I've changed spellchecker and intl.accept languages in about:config --I've deleted js preference files in Firefox --I've reinstalled Firefox --I've refreshed Firefox

NOTHING works, and I haven't found any of the same forum postings to be fixing this problem.

Please help. This is frustrating. How do I set a default language and not have to change it every bloody time I want to type a message?

Thank you!

Since the 38.0.1 update any link inside a page will open a new but non functioning window, it has no toolbars and will not scroll down the page. Bookmarks function normally, it only seems to be an issue following links. They open normally in tabs, it seems to only be an issue if open links in a new window is selected

If I visit a new site and create an account, it prompts me to save the password. If I accidentally or otherwise click outside of that box, it goes away and Firefox will no longer ask me if I want to save that password/log-in combo when I revisit the site. I have looked at the password list and the exceptions lists, and nothing shows for the sites in question. Please tell me how I can get Firefox to prompt me again and allow me to save these log ins.

I recently updated Firefox to v38.0.1 and now it crashes frequently. I have submitted several crash reports today already. I am using a Macbook Pro 2.5GHz i5 running OSX Yosemte v10.10.3. I have reviewed the support forum and the solution posted was related to 'Trusteer software'... I followed the directions to 'stop rapport' but I do not have an 'other' option in System Prefs and a search for 'Rapport' comes up with no results nor does a search for 'Trusteer' or 'other'. Please help me fix this... I've been really happy with Mozilla/Firefox for many years now, but this upgrade and the crashes that came with it could make me change my preferred browser.
