I have a LG D2342 Screen. This screen has 3d Support. I play Battlefield 3. The 3d is running through an application called Tridef 3d. When I launch the game with the Tridef it starts to open Firefox and then the firefox would just stop responding and crashes. I like to use firefox but currently I cannot set it as my default due to this problem.

I cannot use iCloud.com in Firefox at all. Starting from the login prompt there are many issues. From the e-mail field, you cannot use Tab to move to password field, only mouse. From the password field, you do not see the eye icon to show password (IE only?), and cannot use the clickable arrow to continue, only enter. Once signed in, you can click any of the icons such as Mail or Calender, but not the Help "?" in the corner. From inside any and all of the services (Mail, Reminders, etc) you lose complete control of any of the buttons, options, scrolling menus - everything. The back button on the website (iCloud icon) does not work, forcing you to use the browser back button. Clicking on another service presents the same issues - absolutely nothing is usable, clickable, or scrollable. It seems like Javascript has completely failed - though that is an uneducated guess in the dark.

This occurs on Windows 8 64bit and Firefox 18/19 Beta. I have gone through many troubleshooting steps and it has made no difference in the slightest. I have cleared all caches several times, from inside Firefox and through 3rd party utilities. Tested in Safe Mode to no avail. Manually removed several add-ons, checked all add-ons are fully up-to-date (as always), and reset all Firefox settings to default (except Hardware Acceleration that causes graphics issues in 8 - does not help iCloud.com enabled, though). It works fully in all other browsers with similar add-ons without issue. I have not done a full, complete reset and profile removal - that is next. However, I have a gut feeling that is not the issue at hand. I performed a clean install of Windows 8 and a clean install of Firefox less than 2 weeks ago.

I'd like to use the new built-in PDF viewer in Firefox 19.0 Beta to view local PDFs from my computer. But when I try to open one with Firefox, instead of opening it with PDF.js, Firefox gives me a dialog asking "What should Firefox do with this file?" There isn't an option in Tools/Options/Applications to use PDF.js by default, so how can I use it for local files?

I will be moving to a new Windows OS (WIndows 7SP1 64-Bit), and I want to do a clean install. How can I back up EVERYTHING, including bookmarks, settings, apps, themes, etc.. ? So when I do the clean install, I won't have to worry about anything. Do I have to do each one individually, or can I do a complete backup? So when I go to install Firefox on the new OS, everything will be just like I had it before.

Secondly, can I move my Firefox to a USB flash stick, and make it mobile? I would appreciate all and any help. Thank You.

How to always enable Java 6 with Firefox 18

I implemented Firefox 15 with Java 1.6.0.35-b10 to be used with a particular Vendor's website. The site has no internet except for accessing this vendor's website. Several weeks ago Firefox 15 updated itself to Firefox 18 and blocklisted Java 6. I was able to unblock it, but now each time the users log into the vendor's website, Firefox prompts the user to activate Java 6. My users are nagging me to turn this activate screen off but i cannot figure out how to permanently activate Java 6 on each of these machines. The vendor is not willing to upgrade to Java 7. I have tested Java 7 with the vendor's site and of course it doesn't load. Consequently, I cannot get this machine to roll back to Java 6. Once they activate Java 6 they can use the website. I could switch back to IE8 and use Java 6 with no problem, except that IE8 has a flaw in it. I have read that I cannot install IE9 on Windows XP pro, so I am stuck with Firefox. Windows XP Pro SP3, Firefox 18, and Java 6.

In Firefox 18 and 19, the buttons to expand / contract the news items on http://news.google.com/ are no longer work (and some no longer show up).

A similar issue was (supposedly) fixed as referenced in this thread:

   http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=2576447

But the fix (and workarounds) do not seem to work.

The problem persists after restarting in safe mode.

If I clear my history and set my browser to never remember or suggest websites, the search button doesn't work. I can click on it but nothing happens. In addition, if I simply use the enter key from my keyboard, that doesn't work either. I have to reset firefox and then the new version will work (but if I go back and change all my history settings again and then it stops working). Please help.
