it used to be that when I accessed firefox, the screen that came up was my website. Then the AVG people logged in with a question of some sort that I obviously answered the wrong way, because now when I access firefox, I get the damn AVG website. How do I fix this back to what it used to be?

Update 27.0 causes downloads to go to the wrong location

I want downloads to go to my RAMdisk (not surprisingly, R:\), but since the update to v27, all downloads go to C:\Users\Me\Downloads. My Options are set correctly, I've double-checked my Profile location (I:\Firefox\Profiles), and all Bookmarks and Extensions are perfectly fine - it's just the download location that is messed up.

Is this a universal issue with v27 (unlikely) or has a fix been found (hopefully)?

Safe mode crash log. https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/dd6d1ea6-8488-4e36-93e9-011012140206

It crashes in safe mode. A lot more in normal. I think the main cause is tradingview.com. But vertsion 26 was very stable could run days with never crashing.

If I can't fix this i'll need to go back to version 26.

When trying to attach files to the Kunena forum the file fails to upload or show as selected. Other users with less add-ons have the same issue. Switching off all add-ons makes no difference. I have no problem doing this task using Chrome. The website (http://www.kunena.org/forum/K-2-0-General-Questions/126445-add-file-not-working-with-firefox-18-0) suggest that this issue has been present since version 18.

I just checked my Add-ons Manager to discover that NIS 2014 and Firefox v27.0 are not compatible so Norton has been disable.

I'm not sure who's responsible for making it compatible but the issue needs to be addressed quickly. I use Firefox as my default browser and everything I do requires access to Norton for my passwords. NIS 2014 has been out for quite some time so this should have been addressed by now.

Can someone help me with this?

Thank You Michael

When I start Firefox, the text on my home page looks like it's washed out or like when a printer runs out of black ink and only print the color. If I refresh then everything is normal. I have found that it only does it with Firefox. IE and Chrome are ok. I have tried safe mode and eliminated my extensions one by one and it still does it.

The overall issue is that I can't see the image I've created for one of my signatures. I find it strange though because it is only MY signature in this particular forum (the official Sims 3 ones) that I can't see. I can see everyone else's, and I don't have this issue on any other forum or website. However, I can see the signature when I look at the forum using my phone or using another browser on my computer. Then there's this: the signature will suddenly appear after I post a picture in an actual post, but as soon as I refresh the page or go to a different one a large white space will be where my image is supposed to be. I've asked the other users, and they all say they can see it properly. I tried resetting Firefox, but it didn't change anything.

Have been emailing Fredmcd, but he has disappeared. When I click on Bookmarks goes to a dialogue box instead of actually bookmarks. Then I have to click on 'from Internet explorer." I have done 3 uninstalls 2 without personal settings, did a reset issue stays the same. very annoying. See from above FF has a LOT of dialogue box issues. Would seem this is a design issue can't get rid of. Please advise. HP says its a FF27 issue. I have Windows 8.1 which seems to have lot of compatibility issues with FF27! I have a screen shot of this issue.

thanks

I've noticed after updating that Firefox no longer remembers my last save download directory (D:). It seems to reset to the default location (Downloads). I've noticed that checking the "browser & download history" box under settings in the "Clear history when Firefox closes" section also deletes the "browser.download.lastDir" entry under about:config.

This is kind of a small issue, but it is extremely annoying having to constantly set this whenever I close and open a new browser. Is there a way to make sure that entry remains even after clearing my history?
