Why does firefox 16.0.1 not allow me to click on buttons in the top 40mm below the banners, though i can get to them by tabbing to a buttons then press "Enter"?

It doesn't matter what web-page I'm on, the top 40mm or so of the screen is a dead area for clicking on buttons or links. e.g. in Google I can click on a link lower down the page and get transferred to the new article - but if I were to move the item up nearer the top of the page the link would no longer operate.

I can move to a link by repeated operation of the "Tab" key until the link or button is indicated, and then press "Enter" to use the link, but this is potentially very time-consuming if there are a lot of links on the page.

I'm using a Toshiba Satellite L750 loaded with Windows 7, and Firefox 16.0.

Firefox v.17 in WXP and W7 disables Back button, Reload button, Home button, and Bookmarks Toolbar Items - How can I get them back or rollback to V.16 ???

All those buttons worked fine until I updated Firefox from v.16 to v.17. Now, I can't get any of the above mentioned buttons on the toolbar to work anymore. Links inside an HTML page still work, but not the buttons noted above.

This v.17 BUG appeared on my WXP and W7 platform PC's, only after I upgraded Firefox to v.17. No other changes were made that could have caused this BUG on either PC.

If I can't fix this, then how can I rollback to v.16?

this is my web page: http://www.andrew-leonard.co.uk/Mallorca/mallorca%20ferns.htm

It usess css to define layers and javascript to show and hide the layers. It uses a dhtml menu system by Milonic to execute the javascript

This is part of the code for the layers:

<style type="text/css">
#Layer01 {position: absolute; left: 300px; top: 50px; z-index:1;}
...........
#Layer33 {position: absolute; left: 300px; top: 50px; z-index:33;}
</style>

This is part of the javascript to show/hide the layers:

<script>
function showlayer(layer){
var myLayer = document.getElementById(layer).style.display;
if(myLayer=="none"){
document.getElementById(layer).style.display="block";
} else {
document.getElementById(layer).style.display="none";
}
}
</script>


It works OK in IE but not firefox

Firefox 17: Google Search Autocomplete Disabled

Warning: If you upgrade to Firefox 17 and use Google's old search -

https://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0&hl=en

the autocomplete (drop-down box of you personal search terms) is disabled and per Google is not a Google issue

Again if you use https://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0&hl=en

your typed search history contained in the drop-down box is eliminated with Firefox 17, and once again Google has verified that it is not a Google issue.

Hopefully Firefox fixes this issue because tens of millions of people who use Google's old Search Engine -

https://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0&hl=en

use it because it retains your typed search history while eliminating google's suggestions, making searches fast and precise and effective and efficient without google's clutter of suggestions, yet Firefox 17 disables it altogether

Ok, so, I updated my Ubuntu from 11.10 to 12.10. Now firefox will not work. All it will load is stuff in the first tab. If you open another tab and try to navigate away from the tab page, or if you open a link in another tab it just refuses to navigate away from the tab page. What is going on here? I mean, it worked perfectly in 11.10, what happened?

Advertisements from various webs keep opening in new tab, new window, and/or in the bottom right corner of screen, even when I'm not opening firefox. I have installed adblock plus 2.2.1 and page tweak1.0.5. I also have set the pop up blocker and I have set the privacy option (use customized settings for history and enter the web address of the advertisement) but none of them worked (advertisement from the web which I blocked also still opening).

FYI, my plugins are adobe acrobat 11.0.0.379, java deployment toolkit 7.0.70.10 10.7.2.10, java (tm) platform se 7 u9 10.9.2.5, Ms. office 2010 14.0.1761.1000, Ms. office 2010 14.0.4730.1010, quicktime plug-in 7.7.2 7.7.2.0, shockwave flash, 11.5.502.110, vlc web plugin 2.0.2.0, WacomtabletPlugin 2.1.0.2

I don't know what happened and what should I do next because the advertisement is very annoying esp. when I'm working on something else. Please help me.

Windows 7 Professional Windows Security Essentials

I clicked on the Firefox icon. The cursor changed from an arrow to a spinning wheel. Nothing happened. It stayed that way for 20 minutes until I went into the task manager and shut the program down.

I'm forced to use Internet Explorer and it's awful. Please help me.

Firefox won't load google search results. It will load the page of results with the thumbnails etc. but if you click any of them, just a loading spinning icon appears on the tab and it never loads.

I have tried: Both logged in and out of google account, All other areas of google work with no problems (news, shopping etc.), Site working perfectly in Internet Explorer, Running firefox in safemode, Manually disabling all plugins and addons, Clearing the cache and cookies, Opening results in new tab just results in white page with web address but it never loads, Restarting both my PC and router.

It's not been working for at least the past 6 hours. Last time I used it was about a week ago and it was working fine then. I've not noticed any problems on any other sites this week that I can recall.

With Firefox 16 (and all previous versions) if I were to right click a direct file link, such as a dropbox mp3, and select "save link as" it would save the mp3 to my computer. Now, however, in Firefox 17 all it does is save the link itself as a several kilobyte html file called "redirect". Other than basic updates of Firefox and all presently installed add-ons, nothing has been changed between when it last worked and now.

When accessing a web page that tries to display a PDF document, Firefox says my plugin needs to be updated and offers to do that. I download the updater and run it and it comes up with a dialog box with the info below. Interestingly, even though I am running Firefox, the dialog box is "Internet Explorer Script Error" box. Note I can still view the PDF document by closing the Firefox notification bar that my plugin needs to be updated.

This has started happening since I upgraded to v.17. I close Firefox either with the Red X or the exit button on the dropdown menu. The next time I open, it displays whatever pages were open when I closed it.

I have always had Firefox use my Google account as my home page. It will not display.

It seems to me that in your quest to keep updated (how many this year...?) that you've lost a little something. This is very bad behavior and I'll just stop using FF altogether if it isn't fixed soon.
