A year or so ago I had turned on a toolbar that sat at the top with the other toolbar, and had many tools for development and checking of websites. You could turn Java on/off, javascript on/off, turn on source view, and many other things. Now I cant find that toolbar. All that I can find now turns on a panel in the lower half of the window that probably does all the same stuff, but it takes up much more room. Where did that toolbar go? or was it an add-on or plug-in?

firefox was working fine until around november-december 2013. now it's crashing or hanging. nothing works to fix. tried everything already. point is, it's a firefox problem, not my computer. my laptop is less than one year old and i don't have time (i'm a student) to play around with it. it has to work.

it would be great if you'd release a better version, or a fix.

thanks!

The question says it all.

My suggestion would be a simple comment facility at the bottom of every support page. Comments could be visible to anyone or only to Firefox support community or only to the page's authors.

My suggestion for the named page is to add "or on the New Tab plus-sign" after each occurrence of "Right-click on an empty section of the tab strip".

I cant navigate inside firefox.... this page here has been the only place that my mouse will take me to any new page... when I try to go to different links inside any of my normal sites, like facebook or youtube, if I click on any link inside them I am taken back to my main home page.... I also can not single click open any of the icons next to the firefox name at the top left of my screen, history, bookmarks, tools, none of those work unless I hold my mouse button down and then scroll down to what I need... I have cleaned my mouse, and it works fine on my husbands comp, and works fine offline on mine... it is only in firefox that I seem to be having a problem... what can I do?

Is it not possible to update security etc without ruining a perfectly good interface? I realize a reversion is possible but why go through all the hassle? When there is an updated version that doesn't change the interface let me know, until then I will stick to what I like.

In the last week or so my Firefox new version just came to a crawl and it runs like I was on dial-up. My mail runs extremelyslow and the browser takes forever to load my home page (yahoo). I finally found version 27 and downgraded to it from your latest version. I ran all my security software and the system came up clean. I tried to reload your latest version a few times and the results were always the same extremely slow to load and the cursor while typing I was 4 or 5 words behind what I was typing. I like your browser and want to stay up to date but this issue really makes me displeased with browsing. Fell free to contact me if you wish. Jamie Hillin The Sign Guy LLC Pelham, Alabama

A new version of Conduit has hijacked my FireFox browser, among other things. Every time I open a new tab it comes up in the conduit search engine rather than my default of Google. Any mistyping of a url sends me to bing via conduit. I used to be able to get into about:config and fix such problems, but now any attempt to do that simply sends me to bing. This is a horrible mess, and keeps happening, and FF users need a way to block these conduit takeovers.
