I will upload a picture of the problem.

This first link shows the website working normally on internet explorer http://i60.tinypic.com/denq8g.png

The second link shows Firefox with the missing summary box on the website (written in blue) http://i57.tinypic.com/amcrox.png

Solutions I tried 1)disabled hardware acceleration on advance options 2)reinstalled Firefox, even reinstalled difference versions of Firefox 3)reinstalled older archives of flash player 4)asked to activate all plugins, turned off all extensions 5)tested in a different computer model: Inspiron N4010 and Acer Aspire 5551 2805

Anyways let me know if you have a solution to the problem, i.e., why the mouse cursor pointing (not clicking) to a anime title on the anime website not pop ups the summary page of the anime.

I'm using Firefox 27 on Windows 7 and--all of a sudden, it seems--JavaScript has totally stopped working for websites on localhost. I've tried disabling my add-ons, restarting Firefox, clearing my cache, testing with the simplest script (basically just an alert() prompt that works fine in other browsers) but nothing. I load the page and nothing happens. Firebug (when I have it enabled) doesn't even detect any scripts in my localhost pages! The same pages work fine if they're hosted somewhere else, though. Help?

Please help me get rid of the following web page that appears each time I open the Firefox browser. It appears as a separate page behind the browser window, and each time I close it.

Most of the time, when I hit a link, it opens but tabs with ads or pages that I didn't ask for are opening also and they come up on top. I have to dump them to get to the link I originally hit. How can I stop this from happening? It's so irritating and they take a while to come up before I can close them. Note: I use Firefox for Mac OS

my theme is only showing behind the toolbar (tabs, search bars,etc.) when i go to the "Mozilla Firefox start page", my theme is still only in the toolbar, and the rest of the page is white. My theme is also only showing such small pieces of the theme chosen that most of the time you cant even tell that it is a fox in the corner. Is there a way for me to make my theme appear across the full screen?

I'm using My MSN as my homepage with automatic sign-in. Suddenly, Firefox 27 sticks on opening to the homepage -- blank screen. When I hit the refresh button, the homepage comes up but requests my sign-in info to get to my page. I did remove the Conduit Search engine which I never loaded and finally did a Reset of Firefox. The problem remained so I restored my original data from the previous profile. BTW, the "Old Firefox Data" folder created during the reset contains only the Extensions sub-folder and only two files. Fortunately the complete old default profile still existed and I could copy the data into the profile created by the reset.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, This is problem is getting me in big trouble with my partner, who loves to print coupons!

Everytime he tries to print a coupon, firefox crashes after a minute or two of a generic "Please wait, we're printing your coupons now" message.

The problem is not my printer, as I've successfully print items using Google Chrome, Opera, Safari and ... yes.. even internet explorer...

I've done the "reset print.printer" thing in about:config, ive removed the lines in prefs.js, I've reinstalled the drivers, firefox, java and a bunch of other things and it still won't print.

This only started happening since the 27.0 update.

Someone please fix this bug or help me fix whatever is wrong with it!

-Signed, Desperate to Print.
