Up to FF 21 I enjoyd this browser a lot. Then the update to 22 really messed up, well let's just say everything. Images look bigger than they actually are, pages suddenly come with scroll bars and I feel i have to move further away from the screen to have a toatl view of a website.

Given all the comments, I am wondering if Mozilla is reconsidering the implementation of this huge mistake and undo it in one of the upcoming updates?

Hi, Please make possible to Disable/Enable Javascript & Image loading use shortkey. for example Tab+j for enbable/disable javascript and Tab+i for e/d images. Pleassssssssssssssssssseeeeeeeeee. disabling javascript is a need many times for users, and disabling images is need for where internet speed is slow, or for who goes sexual websites but don't want to see pictures.


another suggestion: remove search toolbar, instead use address bar for particular serach bar. now we use addressbar for search but not always. in current versions of Firefox when we search just one word ususally opens a website (instead of search page), and we can not search a word in a particular website. but if be possible to make addressbar to search filed by press SPACE at first, or press Ctrl in adressbar will be nice. like same in Chrome, but can be better.

Prior to latest updates Firefox loaded the two websites without issues. Now Colonial First State website will not display login page and reads that I must update my browser. The Commonwealth Bank site allows me to login but will not open any account information. The Commonwealth bank helpdesk told me to use Google Chrome. I did so and it works fine with both websites.

I'm observing very sluggish performance in Firefox on my Surface Pro using Windows 8.1 RTM. I can't quite track down what's going on, but some startups take as much as 10-12 seconds. Additionally, the overall browser performance is sluggish.

I've tried running in Safe Mode and it's still quite slow.

16 September 2013 Using Windows 7 Home Edition and Firefox 24.0

I always want Firefox to offer a location when I download stuff. At the moment it fills the Save As file location with a location I never use and it is the same one every time, and I don't know how to stop this from happening. How can I teach Firefox to fill the Save As location with another file location, for example Desktop?

NB This is absolutely not about setting the default under

Tools/Options/General/Downloads/Save Files To...

although everyone automatically assumes it is.

Background: After using Firefox for a few months on my Windows 7 machine, I then imported old Firefox settings from a VISTA machine.

Print Preview - Zoom.

When I zoom it changes the size of the page on displayed on the screen and it also changes the font-size of the text being displayed.

Is this a glitch or am I doing something wrong.

Incidentally I need both the features... i.e. I want to be able change the size of the page as it is being displayed and I also want to be able to change the size of the content on the page - but I would like separate selection boxed / controls for each.

I'm running Firefox 24.0 on Windows 7. Suddenly when I start Firefox I wind up on the last page viewed, tabs and all. I went to Options, set it to blank. Went to about:config and made the change there. No luck.

I'm not certain, but I think this started with this week's Microsoft download.

i use sanitisminau and selectivecookiedelete to get rid of junk with 2 clicks(i remember, when i googled back then to see if i could actually merge these buttons together..at that time i was slightly disappointed, that i didnt find what i was looking for)

and now, while im happy with the new compact download arrow, in the long run its so annoying with its green color and the color doesnt go back to default after clearing download history via sanitisminau button, which means i need 2 additional clicks - 1 on the green arrow and 1 random click to close the download menu again

so in summary, here i have this browser, that is advertised as "open source" and yet people give me an impression, that some things are not changeable(another example of this was, when i asked people, how i could get rid of 1 newer part of firefox' history http://img7.uploadhouse.com/fileuploads/18080/18080177c08a6e2ddf65a917b76fb2746b2f38cc.jpg )

and now i have a 3rd person telling somebody the same thing here http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2682857 "you can't disable only green arrow."

on the english wikipedia page it says "Mozilla Firefox is a free and open source" also from wikipedia regarding "Free and open-source software": "That is, anyone is freely licensed to use, copy, study, and change the software in any way, and the source code is openly shared so that people are encouraged to voluntarily improve the design of the software."

well if this thing is open source and it is perfectly legal to modify it to any extent supported by runtime coding language hardware w.e, then WHY CANT WE CHANGE THE COLOR OF A FREAKIN ARROW?!?!?!

i mean this browser gets updates every 1-2 months or w.e, so there should be enough people out there able to deal with a UI issue that molests some users every day..or not??

why are things not as easy in this case as i expect them to be??

When I open a new tab, Firefox displays, in the new tab, links to a bunch of my previously-visited sites. Please tell me how to make this stop. I moved to Firefox specifically because Chrome did this and I hated it. It is a behavior that might have been imported from Google. I hate it. Please tell me how to make it stop.
