Each time I try to download something an add-on, the download generally reaches the maximum MB, and nothing happens. It is still downloading, non-stop.

For example, when trying to download Reddit Enhancement Suite, the download reached 116MB out of 116MB, and nothing happened. Clearly, it was still downloading given the fact that it reached the maximum MB. I waited for a great number of minutes, and nothing happened.

I am not sure if it is a bug. I am really frustrated with this.

I have XP and after I updated Firefox to the newest one whenever I click on a different tab the text on it and the little icon change place, not a lot just a little bit but it's really annoying. I didn't have this issue with the previous one and it seems rather unusual.

Hi,

We have an in-house custom-written macro program that fills in fields in a web page displayed by Firefox.

It finds the window handle of the field with the caret, sends a string of WM_CHAR messages to fill it with text, sends a WM_CHAR message with a TAB character to change fields, and repeats the foregoing for the next field.

This morning Firefox 15 updated itself, and now the macro program doesn't work. Specifically, Firefox no longer changes form fields when it receives a TAB character, and everything goes into the first field.

Any idea what happened?

Better still, any chance there's an about:config setting to change to make this work again?

Failing all this, is there a way to revert to the previous build of Firefox 15?

Thanks.

Jack

Installed WF 13 then a few days later there was upgrade to 15. Installed 15, then the next day another notice for 15 which I didn't install again. (Sep 31 & Oct 1)

1) WF did not ask if I wanted to create a new profile and see that it apparently is using FF 15 profile -- guess a new one could be added and all could be copied over, but it shud ask for that on the installation!

2) Updated a few addons as was asked during the install. This included Roboform. Later when I uninstalled WF, it took RF with it forcing a re-installation of RF.

3) Search WF help and it takes me to FF forum, not WF forum. And FF forum is virtually useless since queries don't appear to be sorted by subject, date, or --- ? Not about to read 50+ pgs to locate an answer.

4) Used WF uninstall with trepidation since I feared it would also uninstall portions or all of FF, but so far apparently OK, except for Roboform mentioned above.

Will leave WF uninstalled until I read that it is read for prime time.

Here is my problem. I want to use "TV Everywhere". When I open up a web site that my local provider says they support I cannot find my local provider to log in with using Firefox, but it does show up using Crome.

A little more detail. When you go to the web site a small window appears with the listed providers that are with the site. In Crome my local provider shows up and I am able to click it and continue, but with Firefox my local provider does not show up.

Any ideas as to why Firefox does not show this?

Upgraded to FF 17 - began getting the old "Connecting..." problems with tabs - have never used renamizer - what's up?

Whenever I open a tab, I get the tab's name displayed until the tap is opened. Then it is replaced with the word 'Connecting..."

I have read of people having this problem a year ago attributed to the renamizer plugin. I have never used the renamizer plugin and didn't see this behavior until I just upgraded to version 17?

(BTW, what is with the flood of major version releases? Don't you think most of these should be minor point releases, or even patch releases? I've been writing s/w, primarily in assembler, C, and C++ with some Java thrown in when I can't talk the client out of it. One thing I've learned is that when major version releases are coming out with quick turn-around dates, something is usually wrong in the management of the codebase. I was working with a client earlier this year who refuses to upgrade past 4.x.x. Major releases have to be driving the extension coders absolutely batsh*t crazy trying to keep up. Some of my favorites have long since given up.)

That aside, my real question is, has anybody identified why I should suddenly be getting a problem that is attributed to an extension I never loaded back a dozen versions ago? I'd hate to have to start debugging or turn off all extensions and start going through a flood of extensions, enabling them one at a time?

I get rid of cookies (delete them all, clear cache and use private browsing), and they are all gone in Tool > View All Cookies. But, when I restart Firefox, the same 200+ cookies are just there again in Tools > View All Cookies. Why/How do they re-load themselves every time I start Firefox? Also, why do I have to hit Remove All Cookies twice every time to remove them all? The first press seems to remove some, but it takes a second press to remove them all...

After updating to 15.0.1 this afternoon on a Win 7 64-bit machine, I restarted Firefox. Immediately Comod started showing warnings that firefox.exe was not a recognized program and was asking to access plug-in container, SVC host, and other things. Weird. So I look in Comodo and Explorer and it says the process is running from this path:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\updated\firefox.exe

Except there is no Updated folder. This happens even when clicking the firefox.exe file in the Mozilla Firefox folder.

Is this normal?? It seems not correct.

I use Windows 7 and am organizing my bookmarks in Firefox. I want to save time by using a keyboard stroke rather than the pull down menu with the Move command. Doesn't the underlined M mean a keyboard stroke should activate the MOVE command? I have tried the Ctrl key and the Alt key with the M to no avail. What key provides the right stroke to activate MOVE from the keyboard rather than the pulldown menu. I assume there must be a command; otherwise, why is the M in MOVE underlined.
