I Have had latest version of Firefox ? on my computer running Windows 7. 64bit. Today whilst using the computer, I clicked on my home page which would take me to the Yahoo home page and I found it was taken over by Cat videos. Yahoo was in a search box but the page was locked by Cat videos. I was totally inconvenienced. Cat videos associated with Mozilla wanted me to sign up with them, which I did not want to do. I thought the solution was to uninstall/re-install but the same locked page appeared. I uninstalled again and went to another site and downloaded an older version which solved the problem, but was pressured to upgrade, I took the chance but before I opened Firefox I uninstalled the mozilla management. I now have the latest version, and for the time being it has not been hijacked by Cat videos. Why is Mozilla causing these problems, and trying to introduce us to other commercial organizations that users do not want. I wasted a lot of time this evening getting back to normal. I would appreciate some sort of explanation please.

Kind regards,

Paul.

I am a developer, and working with CSS, discovered a bug where the children of a "button" element do not get the pseudo ":hover" applied when they are hovered.

The W3C spec says that all elements should have a psuedo ":hover" applied when a pointer is over the element. link: http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-selectors/#the-user-action-pseudo-classes-hover-act

Made a jsfiddle here: http://jsfiddle.net/jbergloff/32jh2/

It works in other browsers and not FF.

Wat. Sad face.

Can't seem to retrieve the search bar that should be located beside the address bar. Tried for several hours, but can't seem to find the right information. I don't want to reset Firefox because I have too many customs set. I used options and put the find symbol, but it wouldn't open, so still need the search bar to fill in specific words for search feature. I also have a problem with the new tab- before I cleaned all the pups I used to go to mozilla home page and when I clicked on new tab, it always brought up the pages I had recently visited--now I just get a blank page, don't even get the FIrefox logo on the new tab. How do I restore this feature I use Mozilla firefox as my browser, and open that to my earthlink.net start page, something I do not want to lose,

opening Firefox seems to take a while. After it opens it takes forever to finish loading my Yahoo home page. Opening a second tab to get to anything else will not happen until the first tab quits cycling. I can not play Pandora on a tab because it stops it whenever I do anything on another tab. CPU usage for Firefox stays at 85%+. Memory is not an issue. I am running XP.

using facebook on firefox is a nightmare. When i scroll through my news feed it just crashes out of the blue i can take a video if necessary and upload it. I have already made a new profile before and it hasnt worked and in safe mode it still crashes. Its getting annoying it has been going on for months and still no fix in sight. I use all the betas to see if maybe it changes but it doesn't. I even use the stable versions and nothing. I have cleaned all temp files I do not have flash hardware acceleration on and do not have hardware acceleration on in firefox at all it makes my text weird and my graphic card drivers are updated. I do not know what to do anymore this is the only site it crashes on and I refuse to use internet explorer or chrome so please please please fix this. I only use Fast dial and a plugin for youtube but like I said in safe mode it still crashes so Its not the addons.

Hi there,

Opening the new google maps is incredibly slow in firefox for me - every aspect from map loading, clicking on route options, waiting for the popups with info on a just-clicked place to open up - googling a place/address, clicking through from google search results into maps , and getting directions from my home location can take upwards of 3/4 minutes, but if I paste the URL into Internet Explorer it works instantly...any advice?

I just tried the recommendations here, no noticeable difference:

Hello,

I'm working on a HTML5 canvas game, where some areas should be drawn connceted in some kind of "blob" of circles.

The code im using to draw looks like this, and an example can be found on github: https://github.com/jrie/Connect

The error is visible when a fleet is navigated outside the main circle, to archive that: Click on fleet icon, click on planet, pressing T to make a turn and see the fleet moves At some point, some strange graphic error, looking like a triangle or extension occurs.

Please try different distances, destionations as possible, its always producing this strange effect.

The code in question producing the result is:

Line 2340 until 2348

gameScreen.beginPath();
       for (area in env.scanAreas) {
           scanArea = env.scanAreas[area];
           scanX = scanArea[1] + env.offsetX;
           scanY = scanArea[2] + env.offsetY;
           gameScreen.arc(scanX, scanY, scanArea[0], 0, 6.28);
       }
       
       gameScreen.closePath();
       gameScreen.fill();

If the beginPath and closePath and fill are all stuffed into the for loop, it draws well, but its a different effect and not one "blob" as requested in this case.
