Is there a preloader for Firefox version 25 to run at boot that makes the program load faster when you go to use it? I think the preloader versions that I've found are for older versions of Firefox.

When I click on the Mozilla icon in the task bar to open the browser the browser window does not show up on the screen. I know it is opened because when I drag the mouse over the Mozilla icon I can see the page in the small screen I can click on that but it still does not appear in maximized size. I can click on the x in the small box and Mozilla will close.

I did nothing to cause this just left my desk for a minute came back and could not get the window to reappear. Tried to update the program but that did not change anything.

Good day. I am using WiFi to connect to the internet. Someone else owns the modem and gave me permission to use it. Sometimes, the modem is working, but looses the internet connection. I want to know, does anyone know of an add-on or windows gadget or program that would let me know when the net is out.

So I have Firefox on a main O/S Windows 8.1 & a second boot Ubuntu 12.04. I've set up my sync account on Windows 8.1 & when I set it up on Ubuntu with the recovery key it will import the bookmarks, add ons, preferences ect. The problem is if I add bookmarks in Windows Firefox & then boot Ubuntu Firefox it won't change it on Ubuntu, if I add a new bookmark on Ubuntu Firefox it won't change it on Windows. They both keep their own instance of my sync but won't share it & share the changes.

Am I supposed to select a setting at the Sync Options to tell it to keep both the browsers the same & to also let each other add bookmarks? If you know what I mean ;)

I am beginning to hate software developers at Microsoft, Adobe, Java, and now Mozilla.

And please explain why incompatible extensions cannot be removed? I want to hear this one.

I was running Firefox just fine until today, when I noticed that NO websites I went to would display any graphics at all. Not even the homepage of firefox where the download link is, the firefox logo that normally is there does not display. Cannot see the google logo in google either for that matter. I never changed any settings at all. I was just watching a YouTube video, and then, loaded another site, the graphics never displayed (at first I thought it was just a problem with the website so I ignored it, but then I went to about 7 other websites and each and every single one of the gave me the same problem. Like I said, I never changed any settings, nor did I download any plugins. Im actually typing this on another browser because it's annoying me.

I have many tabs opened with a lot of images loaded, when I switch to a tab with a lot of images, it seems firefox reload the images, making the switching to that tab very slow.

I think reloading the images on the opened tab is necessary, and I find that in Chrome, when I switch to the tab with the same link is fast, and images are shown immediately and no reloading happens.

BTW, I have stop Firefox from reloading inactive tabs when I switch to them by using the method below: Type about:config in Address bar search accessibility.blockautorefresh and change the value to "True"

But the problem I described still happens.

Any way to fix it? Thanks!
