I'm using FF 23.0.1 Recently I discovered that neither Ghostery or Facebook Phishing Protector don't work. I can install them and they work until I end a session. Upon opening FF again, neither of these add-ons are on and require re-installation.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Jbag

In the past I have successfully installed UK TV Guide to the task bar and had no problems with it. But it has recently disappeared from the task bar. When I tried to reinstall it the installation appeared to be satisfactory but the icon did not appear on the task bar. I do have Watch UK on the task bar and that does have a primitive TV guide but it is nowhere near as good as UK TV Guide. Can you help?

I use Windows 7 and Firefox 23, and both a updated often. I uninstalled ALL Adobe products to get rid of their spying tools - long-tern cookies that could not be blocked. Shortly after I used Adobe's tools to eliminate local storage, I would go back and find that local storage availability was maxed out. That was not good.

Now I get many VERY annoying reminders to install flash. How do I turn that reminder off, permanently?

Since the latest Firefox update - about Firefox indicates I have release 23.0.1 on Windows 8 - some of the features on ft.com no longer work. In particular the drop down menus won't drop down. I have tried IE and have no problems with the ft.com site. I have therefore contacted ft.com and they have said they are not aware of an problem from their end. I have therefore taken it upon myself to ask you to review the situation and contact them to resolve the issue. I do not believe I can be the only reader of the FT that cannot access the pages correctly via Firefox - if I am I need a solution. Firefoy has until now been so much better than IE in my opinion!

Hello!

My problem is that FF itself is not displaying/rendering fonts as it should or not at all. Weird part is that OS in questions is a fresh install, and it did not show itself at start, ie it worked normally, but later after few runs of FF it suddenly started (no apparent cause AFAIK), the only thing that could affected it is OS updates, which I am running ATM.

Some clarifications/additional info: -Only FF is affected ( maybe Thunderbird too , did not install to check) EDIT: just did, TB is OK -Only FF PROGRAM FONTS are not displayed, and some ( ex: about:config ) in-window page content -After blindly finding option to change font/s, it did nothing -Cleaning/New/Deleting/Resetting/Restoring OLD Profile/Firefox does not help -Reinstalling FF and or Cleaning all registry entries related to FF does not help -HTML content works as it should (at least all I checked) -Windows 7 fresh install (currently doing win updates), with basics software installed and drivers (not much to mess up things) -I cannot edit anything in about:config due to it not being shown properly, and I do not know of any .cfg/.ini/etc file to try

I don't know what else could help You troubleshoot, but will add whatever needed

I'm including some screenshots to help you understand:

I cannot attach photos, etc to e-mail. Always get a "failed" msg. I end up having to use Safari if I want to attach anything to an e-mail. This has been going on for about 6 months I think. I used to be able to attach stuff to e-mails with Firefox. But not for quite some time now.

Have used Firefox for years. There should be a healthy list of blocked sites (exceptions to cookies). Privacy: always use private browsing mode - ticked Accept cookies from sites - ticked Accept third party cookies - always Exceptions - shows as blank (no sites listed) Cookies (only Google, coz I'm using it - I always clear out after session).

Reason for question: wanted to check that I hadn't got a site blocked, as this site repeatedly times out - I can't respond quickly enough to the ALLOW button when I get the "Firefox prevented ...." message.

Also, sometimes a key is shown before the lock. I'm wondering if they have anything to do with my real problem, which is a sudden (1 - 2 weeks ago) inability to sign out from my Facebook account?

One other problem starting at about the time is the occurrence of yellow shading behind the toolbar.

Thanks for any clues that might help.
