Hello! I was in the builder.addons.mozilla.org and I was building my add-on. I viewed the documentation and I opened the "windows" docs. Then I saw a code that closes the window and I wanted to try it. Then... it closed the window and I can't start mozilla. What should I do?

Just installed the latest Firefox update (14.0.1) and wtf is this: http://i.imgur.com/p3nuI.png

For the love of all that is unholy, help me get rid of that location bar auto fill feature. I WANT to keep the drop down menu of my history, but I DO NOT WANT it to auto fill my location bar. I refuse to use any browser that does this to my location bar.

I tried "Modern Tool Icons for XP", but didn't notice the "for XP" part until after I installed it, so I removed it & went back to the Default. Unfortunately, now the default theme won't show any colors; it's just white symbols on the background. Even the secure part of the URL bar is just shades of gray. What can I do to reclaim the default as it should be?

Since I received FF 14.0.1 I have had an issue come up perhaps 33% of the time where I will click a link, either in FF or in Outlook, and FF will then open two tabs for the link. This has been ongoing since I was upgraded to 14.0.1 and it is aggravating.

Currently running v14.0.1. The most recent update seems to have disabled the ability to perform searches from the Location Bar; instead, I have to use the Search Bar exclusively. This is mildly inconvenient as I usually have the dedicated Search Bar set to something other than Google, such as Wikipedia or YouTube, and being able to quickly do a Google search from the Location Bar was faster than changing the search engine in the Search Bar.

Everytime I connect to this site, which I have never had problems in the past, I now get this error message.

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.appbonus.info, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

         Normally, when you try to connect securely,

sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.


         What Should I Do?
         
           If you usually connect to

this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

Hotmail worked fine last night. Now henever I open my hotmail inbox I see the inbox page for half a second until firefox crashes. Hotmail works fine in chrome. I first had this problem in nightly, so I uninstalled everything mozilla (including user settings/customizations) and tried installing it again. Hotmail still does not work. It is not a addon problem because it happens with all of them disabled too. It's sucks having to open a new browser to check my hotmail. Gmail woks fine.

I'm running on Mac OS X 10.7.4, Firefox 14.0.1. This issue didn't exist until this most recent Firefox update. Basically, a preference pane opens every time data is being entered into a field. It doesn't seem to be the same preference pane that you see when you open the preferences through the normal Firefox access ie. Firefox > Preferences. All of the choices listed in this particular preference pane are specific to Firefox though. I have a screen capture that I could include if wanted. When using 1Password the pane appears, when entering a search in the search bar near the address bar the pane pops up, when entering data into any field as I am now filling in this detail report the pane also pops up. It's quite annoying. Any advice? I'm going to systematically attempt to quit any add-ons and see if that makes a difference. I ave already tried doing a reinstall to no avail.

This isn't a question; it's a comment. Normally (for me at least), upgrades to new versions of Firefox go smoothly. This last one did not. Firefox was extremely slow coming up, it would not remember preferences, and it went into to this "not responding" state frequently and for long periods of time. I had to reset Firefox to get everything working correctly again.

It's OK if a reset is required after an upgrade. I'm good with that. But you should say so somewhere so newbys like me don't thrash around trying to find the problem. Thank you. Regards, collie-37690

Hi all,

I use Firefox for professional applications (best browser among all). In one of them, we use it to open automatically UI. By launching firefox.exe with a suitable URL.

But from time to time, it opens many tabs at the same time, while we we woud like a only one. And some of them with the whole URL, some others with a truncated one.

In the event log of our app, we found only one firefox.exe call. Then we think it's not due to our app. We are quite desperate. :)

Thanks for give us an advice.
