Hi I've updated to version 93.0 on a Windows 8 laptop. I try to support a website for a camera club that I'm a member of. The problem I'm having is that when I go to the website http://cranburydigitalcameraclub.org/ and try to click on any of the dropdown menus, nothing happens. e.g. Hover over Calendar and they click on Main calendar. I've tried this with Chrome and it works there. Another member has spotted the same behavior.

I'll guess that it is java related. Did something change recently? I know java hasn't been supported but this has worked for several years now.

thanks in advance Will

Hello, I have a Windows 8.1 Lenovo ThinkPad. I'm legally blind and need to use screen magnifier software (Zoom Text Fusion) in order to use a computer. I like Firefox. I've observed that Firefox has been updating software quite often. In fact, some days it's more than once. Can you please chill on that, limiting the updates to once a week or so? Every time Firefox requires me to update, my laptop freezes for some reason and I must reboot and open documents again and again.

I'd also like to bring to your attention that the text using Firefox browser was once black and crisp using my screen magnifier. Approximately eight months ago, it has changed to grey and fuzzy. This doesn't happen on all web pages but most. Can you please fix that also? The Fusion people say they can't do anything about this as "Firefox broke the accessibility by updating the browser". Can you please partner with them to get this straightened out? I need my black crisp text back! I also recommend you do Firefox software testing with folks like me who use this sort of software to be sure they play well with each other before releasing updates.

When using my screen magnifier, some of the magnified words disappear off of the screen. In order to see the rest of the words, I must pan with my mouse. This is not very efficient. Is it possible for you to work your magic so that words wrap to the next line automatically when things are magnified? This is possible when using my Note 5 phone using Chrome browser, haven't tried it with Firefox.

Please don't forget about folks like us. There are many of us who use screen magnifiers. Thanks!  :)

Since upgrading to Firefox 93.0 I am having problems with memory and low memory warnings. Playback is choppy and will freeze making the computer and Firefox unusable. I get " Firefox not responding" constantly. I like Firefox and want to continue to use it. Will you be issuing a fix? I hope that this problem will be resolved soon. Is there a way to restore a previous version of Firefox so that I may use the internet. Thank you, Steve

How do I get rid of Facebook Fence? It is blocking me from signing onto Fingerhut web site to pay my bill. I had to use Chrome instead, and since I could get on with Chrome that means it is Firefox. I tired to get it so I could get on but could not figure it out.

Somehow, I appear to have installed a plugin called the Lhite Network Extension. It creates hotlinks to advertising sites from plain text "keywords" in web pages. The originator of the plugin is something called Advertising (gear symbol) Support, Inc. and their web site is www.advertisingsupport.com. The removal instructions on that site are generic and do not provide the specific name of the plugin for Lhite Network Extension.

Neither Lhite Network Extension or anything from Advertsinig(gear)Support are enumerated in Firefox's lists of plugins and extensions, nor is anything shown in the Windows 8.1 add/remove program utility. Registry searches are negative as well. Running Firefox in "safe mode" prevents the add on from loading, but I still don't know which one it is.

Any suggestions about how to rid myself of this would be appreciated.

In Firefox 24.0 -> Tools -> Options -> Applications, I cannot choose a program (hh.exe) to read .chm files. When I choose to open a *.chm file I have only the option of saving it, not to open it. Other browsers like Explorer, chrome, even old netscape 7.2 allow me to open it and the program finds I presume the hh.exe file and away you go. I cannot find a way to get Firefox (my favorite browser) to read chm files.

I am trying to play a video (the website supports .webm, .ogv, mp4) but neither autoplay nor the start button seem to work. However, if I slide the control button to the right (+/- 40 sec) the video does play.

I have tried many of the solutions suggested in other threads (deactivating potential conflicting plugins, resetting Firefox, etc.) but none of them work.

What am I missing?

Firefox is not working correctly in windows 8.1 computers. It does not shut down completely and then does not open with this error message. Attaching.... David@XXXxxxx.com... The window displays the message firefox is already running but is not responding. To open a new window you must first close the existing firefox process or restart your system. This is very annoying it happens all the time.

I am running windows 8.1 on my lap top. I seem to have to alternate by changing my connection settings to open Firefox. After a session on the pc I can log back in with no problems. Shut down and go to log in again a few minutes later and I get the error message PROXEY SERVER IS REFUSING CONNECTION.

I have spoken to my provider and they tell e I do not have to have or should not need a proxry connection?. They also told me to try the following, which I have to admit is the only way I am now connecting to the internet.

Go to Tools-Advance-Connections. (configure how Firefox connects to the internet. SETTINGS.

In the window that opens I need to go to first option (configure proxies to connect to the internet) Here you are given three more options: 1.No Proxy 2.Autodetect Proxy 3Manual Proxy

If the box is checked for (2) above, I have to uncheck and check (3) above. Then restart the browser. It works fine....that is until I log out of Firefox. Go back in and I get the same error message, Proxy server refusing connection. This happens from time to time....not always. Some days it works fine on the last setting chosen. So I go through everything again as explained above and uncheck manual andthen I re check Autodetect....and it works. Next time it's the other way around, I just feel like a tennis ball bouncing from one option to the other and I should not have to be doing this. Never happened when I used XP or Vista?.

I have Mamaware cleaning installed and use Defender (which came with Windows 8). I have upgraded to 8.1 but the problem existed when I was running 8.

I've been using Firefox for quite a while, but it has recently begun opening every previously open tab when I restart a session. I only want the tabs I selected for my home page to open. I've tried going to the options and selecting "Show a blank page" on startup, but even that is ignored and all of the prior tabs open on each new start. I've rebooted the computer and restarted Firefox, but the problem remains.

When i upgraded to windows 8.1 the arrows with the bookmark folders became too large and i cant use 100% DPI as its too small even with adjustments and visually depressing - its the same on all my laptops and PC.s - it wasn't this way with windows 8 - its obviously something Microsoft have done but can you fix it - i have seen this problem before can you help - anything other than 100% DPI causes the arrows to be huge - screen resolution has no relationship to the problem - thanking you.
