The awesome bar/location bar is no longer as awesome as it used to be. When I start typing in an address it seems like it no longer checks through my history and gives a list of possible matches but just gives the stem of an address. For example, if I type in 'goo' it will complete this to 'google.com' if I then append this with an '/a' it will complete this to 'google.com/analytics' but that's as good as it gets, as I say, no list from the history or bookmarks.

I've checked the options and also about:config and all the settings are as they should be, as far as I can tell (and I certainly hadn't changed any of them when it started misbehaving). I've also disabled all extensions and plug-ins.

It's driving my slightly bonkers because I quite often use sites with long addresses and can't remember each of the components of each address. I'd switch to using Chrome but I also use Firebug a fair bit so don't really want to do this.

I've never had trouble with Firefox before. I was using 14.1 when it stopped showing everything the way it was supposed to. I scanned for a virus, rebooted my machine, turned off the plugins and nothing worked so I decided to try Safari. I set up the plugins I wanted etc., used it for a while and decided I liked Firefox better. So I pulled up Firefox and pushed the reset button. This made it worse! I had checked for updates and it said I was up to date. To make sure, I went to Firefox download page and found an update. I downloaded it and the new version was just as bad. So, I decided to upload Firefox 15 - everything was still a mess. Check boxes don't show on any sites but if you remember where they are the spot will still work. Colors are showing up. Everything looks stripped to the bare bones. I deleted Safari and Chrome - I've canned my entire computer for viruses, file fragments, etc. I don't know what else to try! I'm disabled so my browser is my link to the world! I love Firefox when it works - please don't make me go back to IE!

I often need to file pdf documents on legal electronic filing sites. Never had any problem with my PC, now with Mac I can log onto the site, click the corrct folder, but all the documents (word and pdf) are gray and none can be selected. I found a "fix" for one ECF site (I have 4 I need to be able to file on) which requires me to go to Applications and select JNLP file. But JNLP file does not show up in the list of Applications. But I know I have Java on my computer. What can I do? Help!! If I cannot file legal documents I cannot even keep this Mac.

Adobe Flash Player Plugin - app error notice loops

I am getting the following error message: FlashPlayerPlugin_11_4_402_265.exe - Application Error The instructino at 0x71a30000 referenced memory at 0x71a30000. The memory could not be read. Click on OK to terminate the program.

For some webpages, clicking ok will cause the error msg to disappear. For most, such as Amazon pages, the error msg will loop, i.e. I click on OK, then the box pops up again.

This started immediately w/ the latest release, Firefox 15.0.1. I uninstalled and re-installed the plug-in, to no avail. I'm running Win 8, Would it be better to roll-back the Firefox version or the Adobe Flash version? Seems like I should roll back Firefox, b/c the Adobe was running fine until the Firefox update. However, the std. Firefox advice is not to roll back. I need to change something, or switch to Chrome or Opera.

My Mailtool use to work and then came Firefox 15.0. Now I have a greyed-out area where normally there would be an arrow to select an option to check for new emails. I'm able to set up the Mailtool with my email address, and type of server and password, but it will not indicate new mail. When checking the add-ons it will say that it is working. I have done everything the suggestions have told me to do, uninstall the Mailtool, clear the history and cache, reboot and re-install, but always the same problem. I opened a case file with conduit but nothing has happened and they have not communicated with me, even after I updated the problem by sending them a .jpg of what is indicated and I told them it does work in IE9; just not in Firefox 15.0. I would be happy going back to the version before 15.0 if I could only find someplace to download it.

Ich habe Thunderbird und Firefox vor einigen Wochen deinstalliert und kann es nun nicht mehr wieder installieren. Beim Download passiert folgendes: 1. Sicherheitsüberprüfung 1-2 Minuten lang (zu lang?) 2. Extracting 3. Run as Meldung: "You may not have the nessesary permissions to use all the features of the program you are about to run. You may run this program as a different user or continue to run the program as the current user. 4a. Bei Eingabe von Run the Program as Administartor + Password erscheint die Fehlermeldung: "Anmeldung Fehlgeschlagen: unbekannter Benutzername oder falsches Kennwort" (beide korrekt!) 4b. Bei Eingabe von Run as current user passiert NICHTS MEHR

In Foren ist das Problem bekannt aber der Hinweis auf alte Profile bringt mich nicht weiter, da kein Ordner Mozilla Firefox existiert bzw eine Profile Datei oder der Profilemanager auffindbar sind. Es existiert noch ein Ordner MozBackup (hier gibt es ein File Default.mozprofile) und den Ordner Mozilla Thunderbird der bis auf eine Date nsIQTScriptablePlugin.xpt leer ist.

Eine Bereinigung es Rechners mit ccCleaner wurde durchgeführt ( nach Auftreten des Problems) Das gleiche Problem tritt beim Installieren von Thunderbird auf, aber nicht bei anderen Programmen.

Ich hoffe jemand kann mir helfen.

Firefox (version 15.0.1) is telling me I need to install an update to Adobe Acrobat 9.4 in order to view pdf files in my browser. I use Acrobat Pro 9. The update is actually Adobe Reader 10, and I am wondering if I install this, will it cause problems with my version of Acrobat Pro?

Because I am not sure if this is so, I have temporarily disabled the plug-in and now pdf files download automatically rather than display in my browser. I would prefer they open in my browser but do not want to upgrade to Acrobat X.

My OS is Windows Vista. I did not include the "troubleshooting information" file because I'm not sure what specific info is being requested.

Thanks for any help.

This Connection is Untrusted

         You have asked Firefox to connect

securely to www.mozilla.org, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

         Normally, when you try to connect securely,

sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

This happens for every site I go to http https edu/com/net/org. I add exceptions and I can get around on a site for a few hour, then I have to re-add exceptions even for mozilla.org

After trying out a little utility, I got stuck with the Babylon toolbar and home page.... Yes... I didn't spot the little checkpoint to disable installation... Without any problems, I managed to remove all that... But since then, I can't get my home page to stay set to about:blank.... it keeps starting with the Google search page. I did manage to link the homepage button to about:blank, but when I add a new page (by clicking the + next to the most right tab) I keep getting the Google search page... Thanks in advance. Lody J.

I've just upgraded to Firefox 15 and have noticed a problem in rendering png files. I've rebooted, cleared cache, run in safe mode to no avail. I've viewed the same files with IE 9 and they look fine. I also copied files to the desktop before viewing them but the rendering problem remains. I've attached a jpg showing cropped images from FF and IE from the http://www.petapixel.com/ website and also attached the original png file.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions.

I have been loading my work space via a batch file everyday for the past 4 years.

One of the apps I start is Firefox using the following command:
@start /D"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\" firefox.exe

My batch file would run, and close with no issue.

As of Firefox 15, using the same command now ties Firefox to the console. When I close the console, Firefox closes, when I open it again from the standard shortcut, I get the "Firefox has crashed"

I also notice that since upgrading to Firefox 15, some console.log calls go to the Windows Console while firefox is loading. Most notably is HTTPSEverywhere.

When I rolled back to Firefox 14, the issue disappeared

I've suddenly started experiencing the "untrusted connection" problem on previously working https: websites with the "no issuer chain provided" as the reason. I've tried all the suggested solutions and nothing works. I've run several antivirus programs and no viruses or malware detected. I do not have ESET installed as suggested in previous solutions. Viewing the certificates for the failing sites shows that the provider in all instances is "Digitalmarketresearchapps Pty Ltd". The certificates always show a start of today's date and an expiration of 2039. I think I've picked up something that is causing the problem, but, like I said, none of my antivirus/malware programs are detecting anything.
