Firefox updated last night to 11.0, and now whatever website I'm on, the writing appears as gibberish or all broken up until I mouse over it. This happens on tabs, the facebook sidebar tickers, search fields, you name it. Very strange...

Things appear fine as I type them, but after a while, I will look up at a tab or search field, and the writing appears strangely. If I mouse over the gibberish text, it w… (read more)

I have Thunderbird 10, and wanted to sync my Thunderbird calendar with my Google calendar. I went through the steps described, only to discover that Lightning 1.2.1 cannot be installed because it is not compatible with Firefox 11. I have the Provider for Google Calendar Add-on but can't install Lightning. Please advise on what I can do. Thanks.

When I try to use WebSocket, my server on handshake send header like this:

                       $reply = "HTTP/1.1 101 Switching Protocols\r\n" .
                               "Upgrade: websocket\r\n" .
                               "Connection: Upgrade\r\n" .
                               "Sec-WebSocket-Accept: {$accept}\r\n\r\n";

But, FF doesn't really ends/accept (?) it... It just wainting, and after few sec it disconnect. In Chrome browser it works perfectly... :(

I'm not sure what is causing the problem but it has been happening since beta 10 and now its also in beta 11. Randomly when I load any web page the page is displayed in plain text leaving all the HTML or flash content blank. Yes I have the most recent version of flash installed along with Java just in case it was looking for that mess as well. Sometimes the pages load fine, and sometimes they don't, it's like playing lotto with the internet. The only fix I know of is to either keep refreshing the page and "hope" it catches it on the reload, or closing Firefox and running CCleaner. Some times FF will load some of the visual data and leave gaps but usually its just basic text mode. I'm at a loss as to whether the problem is from Firefox or my ISP being a douche, either way its annoying that Firefox is not showing internet pages like it used to.

Hate to see it happening but it looks like Firefox is on its way to being just another Internet Explorer clone (failure). Should have stayed with your original team, all the new folks you have hired are really mucking up the whole project and its goal of a free and open internet. Not to mention writing bad code and costing you money and more importantly the user base.

(Update, now it's not doing it go figure, but I'm sure it will do it again at some point, perhaps its not Firefox and something else, I'll keep my eye on it and try to report any findings)

I fail to see how I could be more succinct--I'll give another example: Let's I have several bookmarks, eg Chevy, Ford, Audi, Porsche, Jeep, etc. Assume I want to reduce the size of my total bookmark list. In some previous version(s), I could go to ORGANIZE, create a NEW folder, name it, for example, AUTOMOBILES and drag/drop the individual bookmarks (Chevy, Ford, Audi eg) into the new AUTOMOBILE folder. I am unable to find how to do this now. I am minded of my days in the corporate world. The IT department, (then EDP) referred to everyone else as USERS in a very aloof elitist manner--we could never ask a even a question, it seemed, without their helping us to restate, using their specific acronyms and jargon! The more things change, the more they stay the same! OK, this old user feels better now and will sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding and help! Thank you! Denny

I updated to Firefox 11 on Mac Lion and then somehow it went back to 10. Now most Amazon.com pages will finish loading, but not according to Firefox. The tab title will say "connecting..." and it will have the swirling circle and it never gets out of that status. I went back to an old version and the problem goes away. I updated back to 11 beta and applied current updates and it still happens. So this must be a 10+ issue only. This happens on like 70% of amazon product pages or the home page. I also tried disabling all add-ons.
