Due to FF22 upgrade (from 21), all my icons (from webpages, addons and regular buttons) and tabs have got bigger and that's really ugly because of the low resolution of the images. Also considering I have a rather big number of tabs I can just see a smaller number of them and it's annoying. The zoom of the page is now bigger (given that I has already zoom in in version 21, now the pages are too big and I have to zoom out a page that was correctly zoomed in 21) Surprisingly the menu bar is intact !

Is that a new graphic convention ? Is there an update of something like GTK+ in this new version that could be responsible of this bug ? And mainly is there anyway to fix it ?

My screen resolution is 1920*1080. And for example with chromium or FF21 the menu have the perfect size.

PS: Sorry for my poor English.

So the latest version of Firefox 19 comes with a built in PDF viewer.

The problem that I found is that this viewer at its present time does NOT show fillable fields ina PDF, or let the user type into these fillable fields, or show the electronic print and instructions buttons we place at the top of most of our PDF "forms".

Ex: http://www.tmcc.edu/financialaid/downloads/forms/1213/FINAConsortiumAgree1213.pdf

This form should show buttons at the top and let a user fill it out. It does with the Reader plugin. In FF 19's built in PDF viewer I cant seem to do anything.

We presently make all our PDF forms fillable, so if this is an issue, hopefully a fix or update can be found.

As above.Started occurring since v20 came out.Seems like many people have this error.

Reverted to v19.Problems occurs as well.

Tried everything ( starting FF in safe mode , creating a new profile, resetting FF, uninstalling and a fresh install, booting in safe mode Windows). Nothing seems to work.

It freezes again and again only to resume normal service only to freeze again. On and on and on. Really frustrating.

Can someone point to me if this FF's problem or is there a problem with my system itself?

My system doesn't seem to freeze when FF isn't running though.

On 5/3/19 Firefox suddenly alerted me that it disabled all of my Add-ons stating that "These extensions do not meet current Firefox standards so they have been deactivated."

Immediately below this message, Firefox gives me the option to "Find a Replacement" Add-on.

After going through this process and locating the replacement Add-on, all attempts to download this (or any other Add-on) produce an error message stating "Download failed. Please check your connection."

However, my internet connection is working just fine.

I am running the latest version of Firefox (66.0.3 (64-bit)). And I have tried downloading the Add-on with my anti-virus temporarily disabled (with no success).

Screen captures are attached.

Does anyone know what is causing this issue and how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.

I installed Firefox 16.0.1 yesterday. I was running 15 earlier in the day and it was fine. FF 16 however has suddenly started hanging for about a minute when I try to access certain websites. It unfreezes fine after that minute, no crashes or anything, but it's very irritating. From what I can tell it only seems to do it on pages that use Flash. I've got the latest version installed, and it's made no difference. I tried downgrading to FF 15 and it's still the same. Anyone know what's going on? Thanks, Mark

After deleting prefs.js file Firefox does not create a new one.

Firefox does not save any of my settings so i tried all the method described in the following articles:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-fix-preferences-wont-save https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-fix-preferences-wont-save#w_unable-to-save-any-preferences-or-settings

finally I uninstalled FF completely, deleted the FF installation directory and moved my old profile. Reinstalling FF did not help in anyway. After reinstalling, the preferences were still not saved so I deleted the profs.js file. When I start Firefox it does not create a new profs.js file adn of course my setting are still not saved

What can i do? change? I'd rather fix this than install chrome instead...

Hi, Since yesterday (August 19, 2016) Netflix stop working and I get a message at the top of the page saying "Firefox is installing components needed to play audio or video, please try again later". I just called Netflix support and they say that recently they stop using Silverlight and moved to HTML5, they advised me to update Firefox to the latest version, I was running on 47.0.1 but now after installing the update I'm running on 48.0.1 but still get the same error message. I can watch Netflix with Internet Explorer but not with Firefox anymore! For years was working fine I am wondering what's going on, can you help?

I got home, turned on the PC, loaded up Firefox, and ALL my addons are disabled and tossed into their 'legacy' pool of crap. No happy colorful theme, NO adblocker, no Ghostery... it even disabled my Bitdefender add-ons. Something is NOT right here. Anyone know what's going on? Firefox has NOT updated in at least a week or two, so I doubt it was an update breaking anything.

I am currently on version 55.0.3 and have had the offer of an update to 56. I accepted the update, installed and restarted FF only to find that all the bookmark foders are grey [not yellow] and a piece of 'unwanted' software [something to do with screenshots] had an icon in the top right-hand corner. I note that doing a search for this problem on this forum, that in a post by WorriedFred on 9.28.17 @ 7.20pm, a post has been marked 'chosen solution'??? There is no solution - if there is where is it??? OR perhaps this is a new default colour style Mozilla have decided to use with this update - how inconsiderate not to mention this if it is so. And to add on a bit of software without permission is a disgrace.

If there has been an official response/explanation for this problem/bug could somebody please point me to it - I have run out of perming 56-bookmarks-grey-all-update in the search Mozilla bar. For the moment I have done a system restore back to 55 - nice yellow forders.

Upgraded from v 24 to 25 and on program restart noticed my bookmarks menu is really long now due to extra added blank space between each bookmark. Is there any way to fix it as scrolling up and down all the time is a pain in the neck. The spacing is a waste of space now.

OS is Windows 7 HP. Running Firefox 54.0.1. After a refresh of FF I now get a pop-up when closing it calling for me to delete elements of my browsing session. We have two machines with the same OS and FF and have never seen this pop-up before. Both machines have Click n Clean which takes care of deleting history, etc., and shows as active in the extensions list. Note that the pop-up has the FF icon. I don't need this and have tried various menu settings but it remains. Would appreciate advice on how to cancel it, thanks in advance!

Just randomly crashes - we tried all the recommendations and nothing seems to help: updating add-ons; drivers; windows; opening in safe mode did not help; do not have that "bit??" program;
One way that it always consistently crashes is when trying to download the add-on Hebrew Calendar - it starts to download and always crashes within seconds after and before it finishes the download.

Hello and thank you for your time. I've looked all around for an answer to my question but found nothing related to my problem. I've also had assistance in the past with this problem and temporarily fixed the problem but not for long at all. When i try and go to a specific website that I've been to before and have seen the captcha box appear, there's nothing there or it says recaptcha status in black bold letters. Previously i got an recommendation to clear cache and cookies of the website, update java and turn the browser into safe mode and restart which temporarily worked until i closed the browser and then the problem persisted even after doing it all over again? Please help!?
