Whenever I upgrade Firefox from version 32, the radio buttons in far upper right corner for "minimize, change window size, and close", disappear. They'll appear momentarily, and then they're gone. If I downgrade back to version 32, I get them back, so I've been keeping version 32 just for this reason. Was wondering why they're disappearing in version 33!

Thanks

This is happening at least twice per hour it seems and if I had hair, I would pull it out! I have updated, I have downloaded and started anew all to no avail! I am literate and know my way around computers but do not have the foggiest notion as to how to fix this problem. Any and all help would be more than appreciated because I will throw all computers away before I resort to IE!

I open the menu, select option, and the change things such as my homepage, my tracking preferences, and advanced settings. Each time I close Firefox and then reopen it, my settings are reverted back to the default settings. Maybe I am missing a "reset all settings upon restart" box that I accidentally checked, but I don't think so. Any help will be great.

I appreciate it. Paul

I'm unable to correct a wrong url for my home page and have to manually use a separate bookmark that works once the home page loads. I use 3 url's total for the home page and the other 2 load properly.

I've searched for the incorrect url and find it in 'about:config at browser.startup.homepage'. I've made the correction to the url but it does not seem to save when I close out of about:config.

I've reset the home page under Tools and Options many, many times and it still doesn't change what is in 'about:config at browser.startup.homepage

I have been able to save the bookmark with the correct url in other folders.

I've had this problem for quite awhile, at least 8 months or so and keep FF up to date, currently using V33.0.2 and Win7 Home Premium SP1

Hello, my parents just bought a new computer and I am helping them to set it up. Right now their biggest concern is that when Firefox closes and is reopened, the session from last time is automatically restored. They are worried about privacy concerns in case they're logged in shopping or on their email.

I am using Windows 8.1 and Firefox 33.0.2

Firefox is currently set in the options to "Show my homepage" when it starts. I found this link https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/975670 and followed the directions there, including setting browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash. in the config files to false, but I've still had no luck. A search shows that I do not have a "user.js" file in the Firefox profile that might be causing the problem, so that solution isn't working for me.

I also used this page http://kb.mozillazine.org/Browser.sessionstore.enabled to check my "browser.startup.page" and it is currently set to 1 "Show my Homepage."

I'm out of ideas and would appreciate any help anyone could offer.

Thanks!

Good evening,

Recently I'm facing a lot of firefox rapid crashing and I went through all trouble shooting steps, till I reached (disabling addon-per-time, plugin-per-time) step.

The problem had been almost solved when I picked (ask to activate, NOT always activate) option for flash player, which is the latest version of flash player.

I'm not sure if it is about the flash player itself, or is it some sort on conflict between flash player and some other addon/plugin which kept causing this issue.

My windows is 8.1, free of viruses system, fully updated and the hardware is fully functional with no glitches.

My question is: anyone have an idea about if it is might be a conflict between flash player and another addon/plugin which is causing this problem? or is it all about flash player it self? *


  • As far as I know the list of addons/plugins has been attached with this report, which can be reviewed.


Thank you guys in advance for taking time to look into this issue..

I am using multirow bookmarks toolbar 1.2 and the bottom is cut off so that it shows only 2.75 lines of saved icons. Since there is not an UPLOAD feature to post a pic, please see the below link:

I have the settings set to 3 for the number of toolbars to show but it is cutting off the top row of #3. If I move the toolbar to the bottom of the page/screen, all rows show as they should.

I saw a a previous post with a similar problem (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1008744?esab=a&as=aaq) , but it's not for the same sort of content, and the answers did not help me.

I'm trying to view a virtual tour on a website, and I don't know why it's not showing up, but it does if I view it directly.

There is absolutely no indication as to //what// plugin is missing, and where I can get it. I am using the latest versions of Firefox and Flash, on Win 8.1.

You can find it here: http://www.autopano.net/wiki-en/action/view/Panotour_Tutorials_-_Create_a_simple_virtual_tour_and_upload_it_on_Google_Drive#Finished_Tour

It works on every other browser. The full link to the content directly is here, which /DOES/ work in FF: https://49bc6130e8cd1d9c5acf43941b125e6652644cc2.googledrive.com/host/0B21ztMIr_KkXdTNvcHNOYjNlVGc/index.html

I asked for the embed code that was used, which is <embed src="https://49bc6130e8cd1d9c5acf43941b125e6652644cc2.googledrive.com/host/0B21ztMIr_KkXdTNvcHNOYjNlVGc/index.html?html5=only" width="700" height="500"></embed>

Why can't I view the content?


Ps: Your troubleshooter add-on doesn't have a verified author, that's a bit silly.

How do I put ONLY 9 tabs, NOT 15, on the New Tab Page? (First off...please don't read this as being written by an angry person. I am simply frustrated with the browser I have loved for years. Hopefully SOMEONE can help me) For a very long time, I have had my Firefox (version 33.0.2 - although I don't recall getting any "update" notices) set so that whenever I clicked the New Tab "+" symbol to create a new tab (which has the "New Tab Page" on it), my NINE thumbnails would be shown for my SELECTED, and PINNED sites. I LOVED IT! Yesterday I opened Firefox and NOW when I click the "+" to open the New Tab Page...FIFTEEN thumbnails appear, 5wide x 3down, (and to be honest I PROBably would have gotten used to 15! ha). Here's the BIG ISSUE: NONE of the thumbnails are "pinnable". They ALL have the yellow "unpinned" icon in the top-left, and clicking does nothing to remedy this of course. Other than THAT, everything else behaves normally. (ie moving thumbnails, deleting them, swapping them....I just can't PIN them!) ULTIMATELY I would prefer my 9-pinnable thumbnails back on the New Tab Page. I have gone through EVERY option Sideways, upside-down and backwards, and I just get more frustrated. Can ANYBODY help me?

I recently started getting the message: “Although this page is encrypted, the information you have entered is to be sent over an unencrypted connection and could easily be read by a third party. “ with the options of “Continue” or “Cancel”.

1. I have accessed this site for years (a bank), and the bookmarked address is secured - https: 2. The bank tells me they have made no changes to the site and that the link is secure, and when I go through their public site to login, no warning message is displayed; 3. This is the only site that I have gotten this warning on; 4. FF takes me to the page with the data anyway, but I am forced to choose an option to clear the warning message; 5. I have marked the site as a trusted site in XP Internet Security Settings: 6. In FF about:config the setting is security.warn_viewing_mixed;false; 7. I do not get any warning accessing the same site with IE 8; 8. I am using FF 30.0.2 and Windows XP

Is this a bug? How can I stop it?

I am running Windows 8 on my PC. I was viewing images of art on art.com using Firefox when suddenly the images disappeared and I could only see the text on the left side. I rebooted. That didn't work. I cleared the cache and cookies. That didn't work either. Every time I bring up that website and select a page with many art images, none appear. If I use the Explorer browser, it works fine and all the art images are visible.
