Every web page has annoying ads and popups. I have Norton 360 with a clean report. I have updated, reinstalled adblock plus. I have updated Firefox. Nothing works.

By default, adblock plus allows "Mysiterules" as enabled and I can not disable it.

Every website has popups that will not allow me to view the page unless I interact. If I open several tabs to view multiple pages, there's mystery advertising playing on a page with no visible ad.

It's making Firefox useless.

Some Images opened in new window or tab are upside down or rotated 90 degrees, but display in correct position when using MSIE.

I don't know yet if this is a browser or a server-browser interaction problem. The problem manifests one some user forums where members post jpg images that appear as thumbnails. I can right-click and select "open in new window" or Open in new tab". Either way some images open correct, some open rotated 90 degrees out of position sometimes upside down. If I use MSIE the same images will open right side up.

Since the update to Firefox 41.0.2 I have been unable to use Twitter.com. When I try to tweet, favorite or retweet the following error occurs. Your account may not be allowed to perform this action. Please refresh the page and try again. There are a couple of other users that have the same issue, however one had tinkered with the Mozilla and the other unresolved.

It started with the updated to 41.0.2 and twitter works in all other browsers, just not mozilla.

Since I upgraded my Mac OS X to El Capitan, Firefox crashes every time I try to print from it. This happens in both safe mode and normal mode. I can print with no problem, however, from Safari. I have already tried refreshing Firefox, but this does not help. I also read in a forum that I should open my preference file and delete any lines beginning with "print_", but there are no such lines in my file.

Here are the last few crash IDs: 8DDA62A6-188D-4B38-94D6-2E6D7F8B21DD 10/29/15 10:44 AM bp-b4052594-ef92-4ef7-8afb-166142151029 10/29/15 10:42 AM bp-be4561ad-a5e1-47b6-9213-e29ef2151028 10/28/15 11:02 AM bp-b86d621d-7ce8-4d34-89ed-354252151028 10/28/15 7:48 AM

When I restart my Windows 7 system and start Firefox for the first time of the day, all of the text is unreadable, like if all letters of words are compressed into one space. This includes tab names and website text. I think screenshot explains this better. When I quit firefox and start it up again, the problem is gone.

I use Firefox web browser, my OS is Windows 10 pro. I am the webmaster for site http://eckankarinoklahoma.org. When I revise and update the website pages, Firefox does not recognize the changes made until I hit the reload (renewal) button to the right of the address. However, when there is no reload button for a page, Firefox never will recognize the changes that have been made until I delete my browsing history. It appears to be read web history pages. I've tried everything, from reloading the page to getting out of the site and returning, etc. to get Firefox to recognize the changes but it will not. Like I said, the only way I can get it to recognize the changes is to delete my history, which is a real pain. The page that doesn't have a reload button is a password protected page. See site mentioned above and click left hand menu item "Members Login here." However, by visiting this page you won't be able to see the problem until you have visited it, and then again after it has been revised. The only revision made to this page is the date in the label asking for the password. The password works fine, it's just that the label never updates and this is important for users to know in which article to find the password. Sorry for the wordiness of this, but I hope you get the idea of the problem.

Every time I open Firefox a second tab is opened by ZenMate asking that I activate ZenMate. Since I have never activated it, it does not appear on the list of installed programs in Control Panel. I do not want to install it and do not want to be bothered continually with this tab, which is the active tab upon opening Firefox. If I remove whatever it is causing the tab to open, is there anything else that should be removed to completely remove traces of ZenMate?
