Hello

Firefox sending requests to a lot of third party IP addresses. How to know which of these addresses need to update?

Is it possible to disable requests to the Akamai servers?

P.S. I want to restrict network activity by firewall to small count trusted networks.

I have the new version 26 on two desktops and another laptop and this option of tabs on top (or, as I prefer it, unchecked so that the tabs are on the bottom). But my new laptop, with FireFox 26 just downloaded, does not have this option - so I'm stuck with tabs on top instead of being able to put them on the bottom. Why does it show up on three other computers but not on my new laptop (Windows 7)?

I used to use new tab king, and when I opened a new tab, it would always open the new tab to the very right of my session, out of the way and not somewhere randomly in the middle. However, I wanted my restored windows to open where I had closed them in my session. I have since changed to use new tab plus instead, and it worked that same way before, but since I updated to firefox 26, it seems to have reset that option (as well as others), it opens in the middle of the session now instead of the end.

Yesterday Firefox was working fine durning the day, but around 10pm all the text on websites dissapeared. There is no text on google, I can type into google search box with no text showing, it finds results but no text. I tried to highlight to see if it had white text but there is nothing.

I tried turning off the acceleration in advanced options and I tried running in safe mode. No idea what happened or how to fix it.

No text on Amazon either. Hulu has text descriptions but text doesn't show up on subtitles/closed captions. Youtube has no text descriptions, search bar is empty when I type but I can still search for what I typed.

Alice: I just sent you an update regarding Better Surf Plus 1.1. That is indeed the full name of this updated version of this malware program. Please block it in Firefox to prevent so many thousands of other users from losing their time trying to figure out how to solve the bug or problem with their computers. I also removed it from my internet explorer as per your advice on how to remove Better Surf.

PS: I tried to reply to an email from you, but postmaster@mail.hotmail.com says: "Delivery to the following recipients has been delayed. notifications@support.mozilla.org" So, I'm writing this email to yu in Firefox. Hope this helps.

This same problem has appeared time to time, and i don't know why i cannot get past it now.

I have a folder in my bookmarks that has 1 bookmark inside. The bookmark shows as "blank" when pointing a mouse to it via the bookmarks-menu. But the same bookmark shows it's true name when browsing via "show all bookmarks" function.

However i cannot delete it no matter what. It has the delete option, but it does not do anything.

How to remove the bookmark and the unwanted folder it is in?

Trying to clear cache with ccleaner and restarting pc/firefox does not help. I have the latest version of FF.

For some reason, I cannot reply to any Google Plus comment on any Google service when Firefox is in regular browsing mode. I can, however, reply to all Google Plus comments on YouTube and Google Plus in Private Browsing mode. Google Plus comments work in Chrome as well. I can post a comment in all browsers in all modes, but I cannot reply to or mark as spam any Google Plus comment in Firefox when it is not in Private Browsing mode.

Hi, I've just accidentally deleted my whole partition which I save the back up bookmark (.json). I did manage to recovered it from a program but it seem like Firefox unable to process it. And my Sync Data seem to be gone too. And I know nothing about json file (yeah, I did some research but it seem it's out of my range.) I guess anyone can help me?

Using FireFox 26.0 and this morning I started getting 'Not Responding' messages during start-up. After many attempts, including disabling all Extensions and Plugins and reducing startup to one tab only, I found this repeatable sequence:

1. un-installed firefox
2. re-booted
3. installed firefox 26.0
4. got not responding when started after installation
5. closed ff
6. started ff, got not responding, closed ff
7. repeated step 6
8. repeated step 6
9. started ff, got ff Safe Mode message, selected reset ff (safe mode didn't appear to do anything)
10. firefox.exe in Process list, but no window opens
11. ended process in Task Manager
12. started ff, came up ok  !!??
13. exited ff (Firefox -> Exit), window closes, but firefox.exe still in Process list
14. ended process
15. started FF, back to step 6

Yesterday I was experimenting with two password managers (KeePass Password Safe 2.24 and S10 Password Vault 4.1), a new release of Thunderbird was installed inthe morning, and, I think, some new Window 7 updates were applied.

Only changes yesterday to FF were clearing all cookies, history and cache.

Not sure if FF was re-started after any of the above changes/installations.

Any suggestions as to what is causing this problem appreciated.

I have exactly the same problem described here

  https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/959889

and here

  https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/959839

that is, exactly what the title of the question says. The problem is that I am under Linux/Ubuntu and the solutions reported in the links above do not seem to apply (there is no media.windows-media-foundation.enabled in about:config since, as the name says, it is a Windows option). I noticed here

  http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20061175/mp4-not-supported-in-firefox

that native Firefox support for MP4 was disabled until version 26 under Linux/Ubuntu. From the release dates available here

  https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/

it looks I have been screwed up by an update a couple of days ago--which matches my experience, as until a few days ago everything was perfectly fine (I want to use VLC to open .m4v files).

Anyone knows some magic knob to revert? Shall I reinstall Firefox 25, if I manage? I played randomly with a few options in about:config (with names suggesting possibly some appropriate behaviour) but nothing good happened....

Thanks in advance for any help!
