I enter the first few characters of the website - I can use the down arrow and Enter key to select the website but nothing happens. I have the correct website address but neither right-arrow nor the Enter key (again) work to take me to the website I want to visit.

This problem has only since I upgraded from FF 24 to FF 25.0.1.

Anyone know how to fix this?

How do I stop Adobe Flash from opening an instance of Firefox (and thus overwriting ALL of my recently closed tabs) when it installs?

I tend to keep a lot of tabs open, and I rely on Firefox to remember and open my recently closed tabs every time I restart my computer. However, when Adobe Flash updates, it launches an instance of Firefox to advertise itself, thus overwriting all of my closed tabs and any chance I have of retrieving these websites. How can I make it stop doing this, or how can I make Firefox disallow its ability to do this?

Hi,

Everytime I open a new tab on my computer, a message pops up with Java script application in a box with a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark symbol. I have to click ok twice before I can continue using the internet.

Can you please tell me how to fix this, I think this happened after I upgraded my mozilla website.

I removed a bookmark by clicking the star in the awesome bar, and it appeared to go away. Unfortunately, it's a phantom bookmark - it's still there, even with having been removed. It shows up as if it were still bookmarked, but without the star being lit.

How can I remove this bookmark that won't die?

Thanks!

m$7 chooses windows media default and c/n get it to open pdf files w/o hassle. I want to put Adobe acro XI on list and as default for 'choose helper application'. Top question answer [from your search] sounds quite simple but an hour of struggling and no luck! I assume m$ 7 wants to make it as difficult as possible to use anybody else's application. They have succeded,,,,, even in firefox they come up as unchangeable default and I c/n even add any one else to list......I need step by step dummy directions...not just go to preferences.... but,. how to find preferences......Mahalo!

Adobe help center didn't help either.........they said just open app and it will appear as temp default.

it did not

I want to change the program firefox uses to scan files I download. I think it doesn't have my AVG selected. When I download the EICAR test file, I don't get a virus alert. When I scan it afterwards AVG does recognise it as a virus. So I think something isn't set up right and because of that the scan on downloaded files isn't done by AVG.

After the update to 25.1 I can not get AOL main page or email to open but all bookmarks and AOL help operate normaly. This is the message I see.

The connection has timed out

The server at www.aol.com is taking too long to respond.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Thank you Ed Trotter

When i go to log in on Amazon or even just go to Kroger.com and try to complete a survey, the spaces/bars do not appear for me to enter my information into. I have tried nearly everything i can find including starting firefox in safe mode so it can't be an add-on causing the problem, unchecking hardware acceleration, and a number of other things. This problem does not happen when i use Internet Explorer on the same computer. It might also be a problem on the computer itself but I don't know what it could be. Please help!!
