Just installed Firefox for my boss, and ran into something I've not seen before. When trying to access our private camera system, that uses specific ports, I got this message: "This address is restricted - This address uses a network port which is normally used for purposes other than Web browsing. Firefox has canceled the request for your protection."

Cannot find a setting in Firefox to correct this problem. Please help.

Hi, I want to increase the number of recently closed windows which Firefox remembers. It currently remembers three recently closed windows, but frequently when I click on hyperlinks (not pop-ups) they automatically open in new windows, which functionally deletes the record of windows I had open and wanted to refer to again... only now they're gone, seemingly forever. Is there some setting to change this? I don't need or want Firefox to remember my entire browsing history, I just want to be able to revisit 6 or 7 recently closed windows because 3 is not enough. Thanks.

When I scroll to the top of a webpage Firefox will not stop there. I goes past the top of the webpage and shows a white square to the left and a grey bar to the left, then it bounces back down to the top of the page. I want Firefox to just go to the top of the page and stop the way it used to do.

Download error during Save Image As makes Firefox unresponsive

As I too often do, after saving a web page with cmd-S, I mistakenly closed the tab while the page was still "downloading", and as usual, that created the annoying "Download Error" dialog.

(Aside: I use the Mozilla Archive Format 3.0.0 extension, but still, the page is in the cache, so go figure why this error always happens.)

This time, I had moved on to another Save activity, this time Save Image As, from the context menu, in my now-front tab, just as the error dialog appeared.

This combo resulted in having the Download Error in one dialog and the Save Image As dialog both open at the same time, and none of the dialog buttons or available controls would dismiss any of the dialogs. I could press them, I could activate the menus, but Quit was unavailable from the File menu. So Firefox wasn't frozen or unresponsive in that way, but it was stuck. I couldn't get rid of the dialogs or do anything else until they were gone.

I force closed with Activity Monitor.

I realize there was an extension involved, but it still seems like I should have been able to activate the buttons or the close X on at least one of the dialog boxes.

I don't need an answer, but I wanted to tell you about the issue. Thanks.

I've tried clicking on this link to a allow you to enrol to vote in Australia on my mac, but everytime I do it it just reloads the page. I've been able to open it in chrome and on firefox on a pc and from that I can gather it seems to be one of those separate web apps but I don't have java installed on either of my computers so it's not a java applet. This has happened before with other links to similar styles of interactive web apps but the same thing happens, it just reloads the page with the link on it. I always just ended up doing them on a different computer or browser. I tried disabling all add-ons and allowed all pop ups but that didn't solve it. I couldn't find anyone with similar problems when I searched.

I ran into a problem just yesterday when I was on Pandora.com and it would not let me skip songs even if I switched stations, and in the more peculiar case, after more than 1 hour had passed.

This problem does not occur on the desktop app, nor does it occur on Chrome. I should be able to change stations and use another 6 skips, because this is how it works, and I've used Pandora for many years now.

I tried to clear specific cookies on the site, but it did nothing. I'm not sure what else could be causing this.

I have a input type image control in my page, the controls holds some custom attributes including a "value" attribute name, it also has a scr="..." attribute with a valid path for the image to be displayed.

Firefox 25.0.1 will render the value content instead of the "scr" image.

<input id="imgProduct" type="image" onclick="showMenu(this, event);" src="/images/icons/coquette/png/16x16/comment.png" propname="MOQ" distributorid="25"  parentvalue="25" value="50"  title="Changed in this context" ></input>
