MSN.COM has been my home page for some time now. Just today, I am no longer able to download that page. I get a blank page. I am able to download that page if I use the Google Chrome browser, but not with FireFox. I can access every other web page that I normally use, but cannot access MSN.COM

I really like Mozilla, but getting help is impossible. I had to restore my computer by to factory settings. I had all my bookmarks plus a lot of addons and plugins from Mozilla. Is there anyone I can get help from by directly corresponding thru email. I could wait days for an answer thru the forum if I could even find it once I have submitted my question. For me this is urgent.

When I boot up my pc in the morning, most of the time it has "lost" the homepage. It starts up as if I have just installed Firefox, giving me the " welcome to Firefox" pages. I change the homepage back by entering it via the options panel. On occasion it has done this during the day without any reboot of the pc. Not a huge problem, just a minor pain.

this is maddening. After updating to FF20, each and every time I open FF the stupid Welcome message is permanently displayed in a tab. There is no way to opt out. You cannot close it. I have tried cleaning out cookies and cache to no avail. I even signed up hoping that would automatically close it, nothing. I am really really annoyed now. Is this a new feature of Firefox, forcing their messages to appear without any means of closing them?

I noticed that my back button and my add-ons button in the top right corner becomes pixelated. Here is an image to what I'm viewing, this only it disappears if I open firefox up in Safe Mode.

On image 3 the gradient does not stand still, but it shows enlarged scan lines in the background of the LastPass add-on.

How to restore a bookmarks backup without having errors?

I have backupped my bookmarks using Firefox's functionality to do it automatically and saved the file to an external HD before I was making a clean installation of Windows, which means all my files were removed. Later on, after re-installing Firefox, I tried to use the backup I had so I can have all my bookmarks once again, but when I try to look for that file, it seems it has the wrong format (a regular "File" instead of JSON or HTML, not sure which one of them should it be). So I tried to change it to "*.JSON" and it still didn't shoe up in the dialog box. So I tried "*.HTML", which DOES show up but everytime I try to import it, it actually does nothing.

I really need this file since it contains many sites that I need. Thanks in advance.

I upgraded to Firefox 20 and now my inspector is confined to the bottom of the viewport in an iFrame that I can pop out.

In previous versions, I could open up the CSS rules and box model visualization at the same time. This was one of the main reasons I considered the Firefox inspector superior to those of Opera, Chrome and Safari.

I can't seem to figure out how to do this now.. do I need to click between the box model and the rules or is there some way to revert to the old inspector layout or one that is more like it?

I'll code an add-on if I have to get this thing to work. Very disappointed that Firefox removed their old default inspector view.

Also when I open a new window some of the buttons from addons are huge and they don't shrink until I click the download manager button: http://i.imgur.com/AmbB8Y4.png

When the window saying that Firefox 20 had been released came up earlier today, I clicked "Install Later." Later on I was working on something and Firefox suddenly froze. I force-quit it and restarted it and it automatically upgraded to 20, but everything got screwed up like this. Could someone please tell me how to fix it? Thanks.

EDIT: I found that disabling the "Tab Mix Plus" extension fixed these problems.

Hi As of Firefox 20, this issue is STILL unaddressed and unresolved. Why won't ANYONE at mozilla support PLEASE tell us what the story is... with Firefox switching to original window... when a site with flash elements... is "opened in a new window"? PLEASE? If there's a bickering match over "how things should be done" between flash folk and Firefox folk, TELL US! Closing the thread DOES NOT make the anomaly go away.
