I really cannot be too descriptive at the moment ; I was hacked by an ' amateur ' cam-girl ' 17 months ago and am still at her mercy, in spite of having spent nice sums of money with so-called ' tech-groups ' to rid me of her. This new system of communications IMPOSED upon us - how ? [ that's for another moment ] - is so plentiful with vulnerabilities that anything can happen on the face of the globe.

I must have changed something accidentally because now every time my cursor is on any photo on a web page I've downloaded (for example, an article with a photo that you can click on to watch a video), the photo duplicates itself in a larger version. As soon as I take the cursor off the photo, the enlarged version goes away. One problem with this is that I can't click on the photo to watch a video (without playing cat and mouse until I finally catch the arrow). I drives me crazy. Can you help? Dorothy Coe de Hernandez

Greetings

Cor-el - sent me suggestions to try - which did not help any, and I couldn't reply to the email; Cor-el suggested:


Can you attach a screenshot?

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

   Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"

You need to close and restart Firefox after toggling this setting.

   https://support.mozilla.org/kb/Troubleshooting+extensions+and+themes

You can check if there is an update for your graphics display driver and check for hardware acceleration related issues.

   https://support.mozilla.org/kb/upgrade-graphics-drivers-use-hardware-acceleration

It is possible that there is a problem with the font that is used to display the text.

You can right-click and select "Inspect Element" to open the Inspector ("3-bar" menu button or Tools > Web Developer) with this element selected. You can check the font(s) used for selected text in the Font tab in the right pane of the Inspector.

   https://developer.mozilla.org/Tools/Page_Inspector

You can do a font test to see if you can identify corrupted font(s).

   http://browserspy.dk/fonts-flash.php?detail=1

You can try different default fonts and temporarily disable website fonts to test the selected default font.

   Tools > Options > Content : Fonts & Colors > Advanced
   [ ] "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above"
   Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot
   Make sure that you do not exceed the maximum size of 1 MB
================================================

I performed the suggestions as best as I could, with no results.

Here is a 2nd Firefox problem I just encountered. This support page would NOT upload 2 small screenshots. I waited for 10 minutes for the 1st one up upload; all I saw was the rotating busy icon. One pic is 59.3 kb, the other pic is only 75 kb - your own support page is not working correctly - what gives?


The links only show up when I highlight the whole page as shown in the attached pictures.

Many sites do not get automatically added to the list of saved passwords - possibly a security precaution on the part of the sites in question, to prevent hacking of usernames and passwords. Since my memory is not what it used to be (and never was!), it would be helpful to be able to manually add websites, usernames, and passwords to the saved PW list. Then, they could be securely looked up, protected by the Firefox Master Password, when they can't be remembered and don't automatically fill in on a web site. This would be vastly preferable to continually needing to re-register to a web site when a password is forgotten.

A few days ago, something strange happened and a left right bar appears on all web pages. I didn't install anything I know of. Checked firefox addins but don't see anything. It also doesn't do anything either.

I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Still there. Virus scan, nope. I'm worried this is a keystroke/password recorder and I have to stop using Firefox forever.

Please help.

I don't understand why this is happening and has never before happened. Just to make sure this is not happening while using the browser in Bing when I click next page it does bring me to top of next page. I want to know what to do to fix this. Even selecting a page further up like 4 will still only bring me to bottom of page 4 and not the top. Thanks for any suggestions. Running Win 7 64bit, Kaspersky Total Security. I recently refreshed my copy of Firefox since having an issue with security software and this was suggested to return it to default.

I have the latest version of Firefox 40.0.2. I want to delete Flash which I did in the usual way from the control panel, but I get prompted to download a new version of Flash on some of my old bookmarked websites whenever I want to play a video. I tried to run the video anyway but without success. I also tried to uninstall Flash by using Adobe's own uninstall tool (I closed the browser when I did this, but still no luck) . I decided to install google Chrome as a temporary solution and I don't have a problem. I thought about reinstalling Firefox from scratch but I don't want to lose my bookmarks. I don't appear to have Flash as a plugin or add-on. Flash has always been irritatingly slow on Firefox and this new problem with the software was the final straw.

For some reason my previous sessions keep getting restored when i open Mozilla again after i have closed it. Other odd things that appear to be happening is that there are multiple instances still running in task manager and my shortcut for Mozilla takes multiple clicks to even open (the correct folder path is there). Any help, this is getting annoying.

Since March 8th I have encountered several crashes per day of the browser, always when closing a tab.

The occurrence of this appears to be random, in that this can occur within a few seconds of the browser being opened of half an hour or so. Additionally the pages on the tabs being closed appears to be random. The number of tabs currently opened seems to not be a factor either.

The crash report of the last crash was 405af561-b918-47e6-9460-6c8f92160322

I followed the procedure to "Refresh Firefox" and reinstalled my addons but the crash behavior still occurred.

Even running the browser in safe mode has not fixed the crash problem.
