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?

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?

Hi, in recent weeks my Firefox has been very slow, has had a lot of unresponsive script errors, has crashed an stopped responding. It's also been using a LOT of cpu. I've done the usual disbaling of addons and it made a tiny difference but nowhere near enough. I only have ones that I genuinely need running and it's still having the same problems. Anyway. Recently I've also been having a problem with an "important" update that keeps appearing despite being deselected repeatedly. It's not important, nor an update, but is Microsoft junk software. It keeps trying to sneak the installation in, and there have been a lot of complaints to Microsoft about it. I've been googling how to stop it appearing and in the process, I came across this: http://blogs.technet.com/b/mu/archive/2010/10/20/windows-live-essentials-on-microsoft-update.aspx One of the comments says: "Perplexed 6 Nov 2010 6:44 AM

Firefox hangs loading websites since installing this 'important' update, which may be an accident. What I can't understand, is why Microsoft has persuaded me to install this on the 6th November when it's already killed so many PCs. " As you'll be able to see on that page, the unwanted/forced software has indeed killed several computers and caused many other problems. I have not installed it, nor do I intend to. But I did get a lot of genuinely forced updates which I didn't even have the option to untick around the time this started happening and it makes me highly suspicious that they're purposely releasing things that will affect their biggest competetor so that people will get frustrated enough to move back to the terrible Internet Explorer. I won't be doing that personally because I know how many security holes it has, but it might be something that you'd like to look into. They already try to force IE updates and there seems to be no way for me to uninstall it entirely at all. (If you know of one, please let me know what it is. I use Vista. Very reluctantly, because newer versions of Linux clash with my older wireless card. Next time I buy a new computer, I'll be switching it instantly to Linux.) I've followed the support article instructions as far as I possibly can and I'm still having problems, but the main reason for this message is Microsoft's suspicious activity in relation to your product.

I used to have an old addon called GlassMyFox that gave FF an "Aero" look. I removed it now but FF still has the Aero look and it's annoying! Everything is transparent/quasi-transparent and if I try to use a persona it just messes it up because of the transparency of toolbar buttons, I can't see them properly. This is what it looks like: http://oi47.tinypic.com/33z3g55.jpg The toolbar button borders are also gone and I can't find how to make it look how it used to... I tried uninstalling/reinstalling FF and not using Sync but the problem is still there... Help please?
