This problem only started in the last week. BBC News loads OK on the Desktop but if you switch to Windows 8 Touch it tries to load but sticks at about 75percent. I've tried reinstalling Nightly but that makes no difference. Is anyone else having the problem? Is there a solution?

Swiping itself works but the animation is gone altogether. Is there a way to reenable this? I think the feature is gone since mid December. It made FF so much more user friendly, I hope the disappearance is only temporary (and not caused by suits).

The thing is, the combined "star and dropdown" toolbar button is really inconvenient to use with a mouse, I often mean to activate the dropdown and see my bookmarks, and instead wind up bookmarking the page.

Basically everything is very slow and every action takes a whole lot of time to complete - Switching tabs takes about half a second to a full second (About 5 seconds if there's another tab currently loading/refreshing), clicking the middle mouse button takes again, about half a second to a full second for the scroll arrows to show up, same exact thing with regularly clicking the scroll bar on the right, Firefox pretty much freezes for about a whole second before reacting to the click.

I've tried running Firefox with addons disabled, that hasn't helped, which I was sure it wouldn't since this problem started out before I even got any addons - pretty much the second I installed Firefox. I've running Firefox on a brand new SSD card and a fresh installation of Windows 8.1. I've tried both Aurora and Nightly (currently using Nightly), both are just as slow.

I haven't tried resetting, since again, issue was already there when I first installed Firefox.

I have 3 sites in my homepage settings. First two, I keep pinned. Third is a regular tab. When I close and reopen firefox, for whatever reason it will open duplicates of the 2 pinned tabs, as regular tabs. So I have 2 pinned tabs and 3 regular tabs instead of 2 and 1. Why is this happening?

Using Firefox nightly. Happens on regular Firefox stable release too.

I decided to try Nightly, and had Firefox and Nightly both installed. After I did and tried to log onto my gmail account, Firefox (and Nightly) had problems with the redirection to the gmail web site.

I have now uninstalled Nightly, and the problem disappeared. I, therefore, suspect there is some sort of bug in Nightly.

Starting Tuesday 5/27, something with Nightly changed that broke Yahoo mail for me. IE works, but is too buggy and insecure for me. Firefox works, but it's slow. I want my Nightly back, but if I can't get any work done or check my mail with it, it's less than worthless.

I was accustomed to loading a specified path to a folder containing a user profile, which worked for me previously from a shortcut that points to the executables path and '-profile "path to folder" ' . . I am looking to reinstate the browsers capacity to load said profile, as I rather liked that feature. Thank you for your help and continued patience.

When I scroll my mouse wheel down or up, it goes by page instead of 3 lines (as set in Win7). This is happening only in Nightly 39.0a1 (2015-02-24), and I can't find where to change the setting, and frankly don't know how it got changed in the first place. Every other application does the 3 lines like they're supposed to. I was just scrolling thru my email and BOOM it started going by page. I've rebooted and tried holding every combination of CTRL/ALT/SHIFT and scrolling thinking that might help. Any ideas?
