I'm using Firefox 34, and I can't stand the new search bar. How can I change it back to the old style? I've tried restarting with add-ons disabled, so I know the problem is with Firefox

I can upload pictures to explain better, if needed.

I can no longer hear sound from Youtube videos. Vimeo.com still makes sound. So does Chrome on Youtube and media playback from my local sound files. I have tried restarting my computer and also restarting Firefox without add-ons. These did not help. The Youtube sound meter (in the bottom of videos) is set to max.

Today we have started getting the following error when trying to access bing.com

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.bing.com. Invalid OCSP signing certificate in OCSP response. Error code: SEC_ERROR_OCSP_INVALID_SIGNING_CERT

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

What is strange is that this is happening (1) only in Firefox, and (2) only on some of our computers. We have a mixture of wired and wireless computers on our home network. I have checked computer times. Firefoxes are all running 53.0.3 on Windows 7. Setting security.ssl.enable_ocsp_stapling to false resolves the issue, but only while the setting is false.

Thanks for your help!

Until the most recent update the dropdown listing of available sites in the search box was easily legible and simple to use. Being able to target one's searches so readily and conveniently was one of Firefox's most attractive features.

Now I'm confronted with a panel of mostly indecipherable and in many cases confusingly similar icons. I hate it and want my simple verbal listing back!

Yes, mousing over the icons and hovering will reveal what they represent. But having to do this every time makes what was a quick, convenient routine irritatingly slow and clunky.

Please at least let us choose whether to have icons or a simple listing. Please...

I just recently got a new laptop, and since the minute I've installed firefox on it there has been lag when scrolling webpages. It seems to start off not too badly, with there being some stuttering when I first open firefox, however it seems like the longer I'm browsing the worse it gets, to the point where sometimes I'll start scrolling and then a second later firefox will just jump to the bottom of the page. Internet Explorer and Chrome both have perfectly smooth scrolling.

I've tried numerous things to fix it already, this is some of the stuff I can remember trying: -Turning off hardware acceleration and smooth scrolling -Starting in safe mode -Complete reinstall with new profile -Updating graphics card and intel drivers

Specs of the new laptop: Core i7 GTX 970M 16Gb RAM

I have spent literally hundreds of hours over the past year and a half or so trying to figure out why Firefox and Adobe FlashPlayer cannot coexist peacefully. The latest issue that I have found has to do with Firefox refusing or unable to use the "sandbox" technology that every other browser apparently uses. I occasionally use Google's Chrome browser and have begun exploring Microsoft's new Edge since I updated my OS to Win10 about a week ago. Neither platform has any problem whatsoever with Adobe FlashPlayer content. I have been a very dedicated and contented FireFox user for at least the past five years except for this problem which has become unendurable since my Win10 “upgrade.” With Win8.1, I completely booted all traces of Adobe FlashPlayer off my computer and simply ignored content that depended on it. This does not seem to work since my “upgrade.” Now, every single site I access that has any Adobe Flash dependent content in it brings my entire FireFox browser to a screeching halt for approximately a minute. I frequently end up using the old three finger salute to end the grid block that has become standard operating procedure with my current use of FireFox. I am brought to a point where I have to consider abandoning FireFox completely until this “disconnect” is at last addressed and permanently resolved by Mozilla FireFox. I have tried all the "safe mode" fixes. I have updated every updateable parameter imaginable. I appeal to anyone in the community who has a workable fix for this problem as a last resort before I move my online activities to another browser. I will respond quickly to anyone who offers help and needs me to try something to fix this. Thank you for any assistance with this longtime problem.

I have a problem with youtube and other video websites:

Everything is up to date (flash, FF, my plug ins..) but i keep getting freezes when the video loads. I can hear sound but i can only see the first frame of the video.

I've reinstalled flash/firefox or tried updating them again for about 4 times now and my cookies/cache has also been errased which i usually don't do. If i enter FF's safe mode it also freezes.

I hope someone could help out, i've searched for answer on google before and tried everything i saw but it didn't helped.

IN FF28 it was possible to detach the refresh button from the address bar, but now the whole address bar is just one element. I am really used to have the button on the left side and not on the right side of the screen. I would love to have the opportunity back again to separate them!

I installed the latest version of Firefox on my new Windows 10 laptop. Some sites including google.com and some Mozilla pages are giving me "your connection is not secure" errors. I do not get those errors on the laptop with IE or Edge, and I do not get the errors on my Windows 7 desktop PC running an earlier version of Firefox. I had FF set to be the default browser on the new laptop so out of frustration I uninstalled FF. What could be causing these messages on reputable websites?

I went to list some items on eBay last night and part of the item description is not visible although if I go on Google Chrome all of the information is there. This only happened last night - never before. Some previous listings have the same problem but most do not. I worked with eBay and it appears to be a problem related with the Firefox browser.

I am using Video Download Helper with companion app, when downloading videos, the DownloadHelper will uses only one process of Firefox with very high CPU and memory usage. . Ans cause it does not take advantage of all the CPU cores it is very slow, and uses high memory for that process and will make all tabs in Firefox slow.

It seems that this process is the core process for Firefox, although it is a sub-process. It is the process that almost doesn't uses GPU memory.

When finished, if I killed this Firefox process to clean memory, cause it will just accumulate the memory in that specific process, all the tabs in the Firefox will crash and can't be refreshed, until I close Firefox and open it again.

Usually when I kill a Firefox process that is not responding, it will crash a few tabs and they can be refreshed after that.

Is there anyway that can make the companion app uses all processes for Firefox, so it will distribute the CPU usage to all cores, and if used a high memory it will be distribute the memory to all process and will be easier to clean.
