Recently an arrow appeared at the top of my upper toolbar next to search window. It glows when downloading and tells time I have left to finish. Then enlarges when download is finished. It's stupid. I have download bar in my add-ons to track downloads. How do I get rid of it, very annoying!! My son's computer got one too and is a little different in color, but he hates it too. Is it an automatic Mozilla update? I didn't download any add-ons or browers recently.

Hello, I've used Firefox for years, but last time I migrated to Chrome. I'ld like to come back, but I have problems with blur / fuzzy fonts on Firefox.

Before I create this question, I checked several topics. - Disable HA - no results - Use Anti-Alias Tuner - no results - change gfx.content.azure.enabled etc. - no results

I tried several version - stable, ESR, beta, aurora... still without results. Change graphics driver... nothing.

Last option - I compared fonts in Firefox and Chrome during changing settings. All is very silimiar, except one details - alias colors, see:

I think, this may cause blur effect and tired eyes. Is it possible, to change this?

It's for resolving ambiguity.


Personas is a lightweight dynamic theme system together with Firefox.

But it is now re-concept as "background themes" and dropoff the unique name of Personas.

And you can download and install this kind of themes from: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/themes/

By now(Apr. 2013), your access to Personas website at: http://www.getpersonas.com/

will redirect to: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/themes/


While Persona is a web based user-friendly login(authorize and identify) technology introduced by BrowserID and Persona team of Mozilla.

See more details for Persona on: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Persona


By now(Apr. 2013), you can login website list below with your Persona ID(which only need your email account support):

https://developer.mozilla.org/

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/

https://marketplace.firefox.com/

Other than Mozilla site:

http://voo.st/

http://crossword.thetimes.co.uk/

But still not here: https://support.mozilla.org/

Not sure what happen, but was working fine the night before.

Now when ever I open up Firefox I get the We are Sorry message and continues to loop until the start safe mode appears.

I can start in safe mode with no issues, I've tried disabling all the plug-ins but get the same issue.

Here are some crash report IDs Crash ID: bp-b6bc5116-1812-45e5-a00d-e306f2130228 Crash ID: bp-e5b75a93-ad59-4e43-ad06-56b562130228 Crash ID: bp-af3fde3e-01ec-4174-8fba-ba0982130228 Crash ID: bp-c664e052-5b67-47d1-8c45-2ed002130228

In addition, I get the same issue with internet explorer, I get a loop message saying thet its crashed or stopped working.

Thanks in advance

If I try to enter a comment on a FaceBook post, error message that I am unable to do it. Then every restart of FireFox throws an error message for every attempt EVER made to comment. FireFox has become totally unusable on FaceBook. I see that you have the problem marked "Solved" so apparently no one plans to do anything about it. To bad, that makes FireFox unusable and it's a pretty decent program aside from that. But I can always <sigh> go back to IE.

Web pages redirecting to Google.com/uds/... page? (Firefox 19+ Mac OS X)

When I visit certain pages with ties to Google Ads or Google Trends, such as yellowpages.com or knowyourmeme.com, I get an immediate redirect to a blank Google page, usually google.com/uds... along with some term like adtest and the desired URL in html/unicode text.

For example, going to http://www.yellowpages.com/moscow-id/model-trains redirects to http://www.google.com/uds/afs?q=model%20trains%20moscow%20id&client=attinteractive-yp&adtest=off&r=m&adpage=1&oe=UTF-8&ie=UTF-8&fexp=21404&format=w3&ad=w3&nocache=8751362135301596&num=0&output=uds_ads_only&v=3&adlh=on&adext=as1&rurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.yellowpages.com%2Fmoscow-id%2Fmodel-trains&&u_his=1&u_tz=-480&dt=1362135301597&u_w=1920&u_h=1080&bs=1905,946&ps=1905,4979&frm=0&loader=alt#master-1&safe=high (a quick search reveals that this is a Google AdSense for Search query.)

This only started a few weeks ago after I upgraded to Firefox 19.0 and upgraded my Java, Flash and other plugins to the latest versions (straight from the official websites; no chance of fake third-party upgrades). I just upgraded to the FF20 beta; the issue persists here as well. I also tried disabling my ad blocker (GlimmerBlocker; a standalone proxy-based blocker) to no avail.

I'm not sure if it's a Javascript issue with Firefox, or if Google changed their code, or what. I didn't have this problem on Firefox on Windows on a school computer, although I don't recall if that was a current or older version.

Here is the raw HTML for the Google page (LONG):

Hi I have upgraded the ff18 to Ver 19 a few days ago and came across this issue/ bug. I have again gone to the beta ver20 as well and it still persists.

Whenever I try to download something in the private browsing mode, none of the downloads (download progress) are shown in the download window I.e. things like 'the % downloaded' and the 'speed' etc even though I know the download is taking place. This was very useful in the old versions of FF.

Any suggestions other than going back to ver18?

At first all I knew was my browser somehow entered full-screen (which I never knew it could do) AND it kept crashing. This was just after updating to "v19.whatever". The fullscreen bit seems to have been another symptom of this glitch, btw.

I came hear and so tried Firefox safemode, no dice. I tried scanning with MBAM and SAS. No joy. I disabled plugins- no change. I downgraded back to v18...still Nada. I upgraded to the v20-something beta...Still crashes. This really sucks. At least it's not just me by the looks of things.

Sometimes it crashes five times in two minutes, other times it might go an hour. Hopefully not until I post this...


Also, I'm using Win764 not Win8.
