I'm using FF29 with OS 10.7.5

Using the menu bar at the top of the screen, the drop down window for Bookmarks became very wide. None of the other drop down windows have this issue. How can I resize it to be smaller?

This isn't a problem with the drop down window under the tabs on FF, but I prefer using the tool bar at the top of the screen.

My operating system is Windows XP. After the last upgrade to Firefox 29.0, web pages began showing nbsp; through out including my home page. I never saw these until the latest upgrade. Internet searches indicate this indicates a space when the web page is developed but is not intended to be displayed. Why am I now seeing this on most web pages I visit? Is there a change or fix I can install to prohibit this from being displayed? Thanks

I often use "open all as tabs" for a bookmark folder of weather.com "5 day forecast" sites covering the towns in a geographical region where I plan to go hiking.

One Firefox browser with six tabs for six towns in my state. "5 day forecast for Gorham," "5 day forecast for Jackson," "5 day forecast for Lincoln," etc.

The problem is the tab displays only some of the first few words of the site description: "5 day forcas," "5 day forcas," "5 day forcas," etc.

I'd like to display only the end of that sentence, which is the name of the town. This way I would have a list of towns across the top of the browser for direct reference.

I changed the "name" property of each bookmark, but that only affects the name in the bookmark collection list, not the display name of a tab in use.

I'm using Firefox 32.0.3 on my Windows 8 (.1) PC. The problem I always face with Firefox on my Windows 8.1 machine is that Firefox displays text improperly, see the screenshots here: http://1drv.ms/1xCwgJ0.

It mostly happens in the bookmarks bar, menu, tabs and sometimes in the webpage. Actually, it can happen on any text elements. What's wrong? ClearType is turned on.

I use browse by name queries to surf a good part of the internet, but there's a weird thing going on with the Fox and it's a strange operation.

Whenever I type in the name of a website hit enter and then goto a different tab, the page loads on the tab I changed to, not the original tab.

I start with Tab 1 and request cnet in BBN. I change to Tab 2 which has facebook loaded and I'm looking through it.

Request completes

Tab 1 has cnet in a google search Tab 2 has changed to cnet.com by itself.

How do I make this stop?

I've read through multiple threads on this in attempt to not waste people's time with a silly question. After trying the myriad of ideas, the problem persists. When I open a new tab whether with about:newtab or about:blank, the cursor does not focus anywhere. It doesn't matter if I use cntrl t or the "+". I'd like to get it to focus in the address bar by the end of things.

Here is what I've tried:

I've changed the the about:newtab to about:blank. This didn't work.

I disabled all extensions - which is to say the Classic Theme Add-On which is the only one I have. That didn't work.

I started in Safe Mode, that didn't work.

I've reset Firefox. That didn't work.

I've reinstalled Firefox, that didn't work.

I'm concerned that I'll have to get lucky like https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/972359 and wake up to the problem resolving itself. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

When I'm using Google+ Hangouts, after a while the window starts glitching out. When I mouse over anything clickable the chat scrolls up by itself, the chat box moves halfway up the window and the video/webcam area goes half black/white then it all goes back to normal a split second later. This keeps happening until I refresh, but then it starts happening again. http://i7.minus.com/iFkcflNZvwmx5.png That's a screenshot of how it looks.

Nothing I've tried has solved it. I've reset firefox, re-installed, created new profiles, restarted my computer, all my drivers are up to date, my memory and cpu usage is minimal. Everything else works fine it's just this that doesn't.

When I scroll a page such as when using twitter or other similar site that you can continue to scroll after page conltinues to load more data, once I click or right click on a link page so that I can open another tab the page springs back to top. Then have to shuffle towards the end again to continue viewing.

IS this a common problem and is there a solution to this? It seems to only happen to when I use Firefox, as I like to use this more than others.

Would appreciate some suggestion on how to prevent this from occurring. Thanks.

I have Firefox 33.1.1 installed on a 13" MacBook Pro with retina display, and the UI is always tiny when viewing on the in-buillt retina screen. I often have the MacBook plugged into an additional 27" Dell display and firefox looks fine on this display, but when moving the same window on to the retina screen, it redraws like the attached screenshot. If I don't have the external display plugged in at all, and open Firefox after a restart, the same issue still occurs.

Example screenshot is uploaded here: http://imgur.com/WpCIMGN

Hi,

We are a company with Firefox 24 deployed to more than 2000 PCs. We have an Intranet app made with Silverlight working ok with this Firefox version. But now we want to update to Firefox 33 and testing it we've found that it doesn't work with the Silverlight app with big monitors. It seems to be related to the resolution of the monitor, or at least, to the size of the Firefox window. The problem is that the mouse pointer doesn't seem to be pointing where it is. It's better explained in this screencast, where you can see that in a 1024px Firefox window it works OK, but when it's 1920px it doesn't work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DA9DLYc-vpE

We tried different versions of Silverlight, currently 5.1.30514.0 I don't know in which Firefox version it started to appear this bug. With Internet Explorer it works.

Any idea?

If you open the website in Firefox there is a main panel in the middle that is suppose to have 10 images that slide into that main panel from right to left one at a time.

After the main photo slides in there are two small panels, one photo of a jar and one panel with the title, drop into the main photo once it slides in and stops.

It works fine in Safari and on my iPad. I had someone check it on their laptop, desktop and iPad and it worked fine.

The site is www.brotherssauces.com


Thanks, Barry King
