This is the issue that I'm having. I'm not sure if this is something that's updated with Firefox or not.

Normally when I would save a picture, for example, my downloads window would pop up to the left of my screen, and show all the most recent downloads. I only just noticed today that there's a little downwards pointing arrow right next to my home button. When I save or download something to my computer, it goes through the arrow, and the downloads box doesn't look the way that I'm familiar with it looking.

This is what I'm talking about with the arrow http://i1011.photobucket.com/albums/af233/Bat_Spork/Arrow.png

Is there a way to change that? Is this something new with Firefox?

FF 20.0.1 Giving Me Massive Issues With Tabs - Help Greatly Needed

So Firefox updated tonight unfortunately, even though I thought I had turned that off, and I'm having massive issues. It took about two hours for me to just get my shortcut keys working again and if I right click to "Open in a New Tab" there is no responsive activity from FF. If I right click on anything (on that MASSIVE menu, btw - really? I don't need all of that!) none of it is working. And any tabs I now manage to get open using my restored shortcut keys go unresponsive.

I've tried re-starting w/o add-ons, but nothing changed. And I'm not restoring to a default of 20.0.1 - at that point I'll scrap this update and go back to my preferred v.19 as of January.

After I switched to Tab Mix plus I started getting the close button on both sides of tabs which causes me to accidentally close them all the time. I also use TreeStyle Tab and I suspect an option in one of these two addons caused this... Or maybe a conflict? I tried to solve it myself through the addon options but to no luck. I'd like to keep both addons because they're great, help please?

Can't watch youtube videos in 720p or 1080p in firefox

I don't know what's causing it, but whenever I set a YouTube video quality to 720p or 1080p Firefox slows down drastically and the video will freeze frequently and get quite jerky. When I put the video into fullscreen on 720p or 1080p, it slows down monumentally more... as in it takes a few seconds to pause when I click or hit spacebar & it takes a few seconds for the UI to show up.

If I wait for the ENTIRE video to load, it will continue to play fine. I just don't know why it's being slowed down so much. I checked activity monitor and CPU usage is high but it's not capped, it's around 60-80% in these cases. I've already tried Resetting Firefox and updating Flash Player. Memory is typically between 30-50% usage.

My computer specs are: Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.4GHz, 4GB DDR2 RAM, GeForce GTX 560 1GB

hardware acceleration is on. Any ideas what's slowing it down and what I can do to fix it? Thanks.

This is about the fourth time I've been asked to enter this material. For the second time in a row firefox will not run after installing the update (currently v20). Upon completing the update, attempting to run firefix results in nothing at all. Going to MSIE and attempting to run another firefix update will not run the update procedure unless you first totally remove all mozilla traces from your file system. THEN you can rsinstall cold from MSIE BUT, when firefox attempts to run it stalls halfway through the add-on checks and that program must be aborted. You CAN then get something running, but what is going on and why are we having all these problems. I have used this for years without any of this in the past?
