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.

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?

When posting to a forum the "Preview Post" button no longer works in Firefox. On a couple of forums I get a "Fetching Preview" message, but it never comes up. I have a similar problem with eBay. When I click preview it just opens to a blank page.

I can preview in Chrome, but would much rather make these work again in Firefox than switch over.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you, Bob

I have Windows 8.1, touchscreen. When responding to an issues email that then gives me the option to share on Facebook, the resulting share window does not format so that the share button is accessible to click or press. Thus, I cannot share anything. I have tried resizing the share window, but it just jumps around and never makes the button accessible.

Why do the new Tiles show password-protected content?

I updated to the new 33.1 version of firefox with the enhancements to the tiles displayed on a blank tab. I do not know if this behavior started prior to this update, or with it; just that my attention was drawn to it during the 33.1 tour.

Issue: Some of the tiles are displaying screenshots of pages that are password-protected. These are for sites that I am currently NOT LOGGED IN TO. Therefore, my expectation is that no protected data should be visible. This is not what is happening. An FTP site clearly shows filenames and data; my dropbox account shows the various folders, etc. Again, these are accounts I am signed out of, so there is no way firefox should have cached images of them.

In my opinion this is a serious security bug that needs addressed. In the meantime, any way I can disable this behavior?

I just recently reinstalled firefox after I kept getting the error msg: can't read configuration. contact administrator. Well finally, i got it working after I completely (I think) deleted all the firefox files off my pc. Now the issue I have is when I'm in a browser & I am on one page..let's say I'm on facebook..and I'm on 1 page..and I decide I want to go to a different page in facebook, it used to be that, the browser would bring fave pages and i could just click on one & the browser would automatically go to that page. Now, if another page is clicked on, my browser WILL not go to that page & I cannot figure out why. I actually have to open another browser to go to another site. It's like my browser will only view one site in one browser. I'm sure it has something to do with my recent re-install but whatever the issue is, it's driving me crazy. Hope I explained it in enough detail.

Though my browser deletes everything before it exits out I didn't take any chance and ran CCleaner and in-spite of this I can't open Gmail. Mozilla says Untrusted Connection! Gmail opens fine on Internet Explorer. There are some other websites as well that do not open here. All this started after the last automatic update. Can you guys find a solution for me?
