For the last several versions of Firefox, all attempts at PDF downloads fail. On rare occasions I can go to Save As..., get a dialogue box and save the file. But 80+% of the time it just fails and I have to go and paste the URL into Safari to get the file. Every time Ffx. upgrades I think this might get fixed, but it hasn't. I'm running AdBan and Do Not Track Me in both browsers, so that shouldn't be the issue. Please advise.

I'm trying to reduce the overall space of the top of the firefox page. I have the menu and the the bookmarks tool bars checked and between those 2 and the address and site header it takes up way to much real estate. My font size is good but the wasted area is way to much and I can't seem to find the simple answer to looking for addons and themes to just resize the height of the space. This is the new 33.1 and up to this point all custom has been a breeze. Thanks much.

Hi guys,

I recently moved over from Chrome and am loving the customizability so far! Tab groups are definitely my favourite feature so far. I've pretty much got everything exactly how I like it, but am stuck on one last thing.

Is there a way to have a preview window come up when cycling through tabs, similar to the menus that come up when command-tab (Mac) or alt/windows-tab (PC) are pressed? I really prefer that aesthetic over immediately seeing the tab pop up, as it allows me to see all of my open groups at a glance.

I did about half an hour of google-fu but wasn't able to find any results unfortunately. I'm not the best at picking out keywords for google searches however, so it's very possible I missed an extension or support thread asking the same question. Any help would be gladly appreciated!

FireFox 33.1 will not display the PDF file from Bank online site after 33.1

I asked this question in an unrelated support ticket so I want to give more detail here. I have tried uninstalling Adobe reader and reinstalling it and it did not help. This was working before with all the exact same addins I had before. I called the Bank and asked if they had any problems and they say no. I can go to the Firefox PDF display for this file and click on download the PDF then double click it in Windows explorer and Adobe reader comes up and displays the file just fine. Don't mind doing that for now. What happens is the bank loads the file then Adobe reader displays with a white screen and a little circle going round and round, like a video is trying to play, and it just sits there forever. I never see the file contents. Anyway I hope your have a good of a day as I am and I know it get better. Thanks Firefox programmers for such a wonderful program.

Update: While I was writing this I remembered to go into Firefox options, then Applications, and wouldn't you know it, a PDF document was set to "Preview in Firefox". I changed that to Adobe reader and now it works just fine. Guess there's something wrong with the Preview code in Firefox. So I'm happy now. Hope this helps someone.

I tried using the email link in Firefox 33. It opened an "open with" window. Checked for support online. Followed the instructions to configure the mailto client in the applications. When I searched for mailto it was not there. I reset Firefox. Turned off the computer for a while. When I started Firefox up again checked if mailto was in the applications list. It was there. I also noticed in my plugins H264 was there. I know it is part of the developers software now, but I do not want it. So I removed it. Then mailto was gone again. I reset Firefox again to see if mailto came back. It was still not there. Tried restarting the computer. Still not there. I have added some plugins. They are Better Privacy, Ads no more, Smart Ads Blocker, and Yahoo Mail Hide Ad Panel. Is it the plugins, or something else that is making this happen? Please let me know.

Did ver 33.1 become branded? How do I get rid of this? Without some help, I'll drop FF because if it won't clear links, it's no good to me. thanks for your help.

And why does your report show Ver 33.o when the About Firefox box says 33.1?

Firefox crashes approximately 3 times a day, it either just stops responding or closes spontaneously. The issue started spontaneously a few weeks ago. Usually I have 5 to 10 tabs open. Whenever it happens, I either search things on Amazon, watch news (flash player) or play games (flash player). I already reinstalled Firefox and updated adobe reader, java, and flash player plugins. Do you have any other suggestions what I could try to fix this issue?
