Why do you automatically assume the people I wish to contact via Firefox Hello are on Gmail or Yahoo?

I was "trying" Firefox Hello but when I tried to use it for the first time, to connect with anyone I'd know, I was only given the choice of using Gmail or Yahoo as sources for email links. I primarily use Outlook and any contact I'd care to connect with would be located there. When the "Choose an application" window came up showing only Gmail and Yahoo, I clicked to find another app to use and have no idea how to find/connect with my Outlook app for email links. The Firefox app shows no way to access any other kind of email and I think that's damned short-sighted and arrogant of Firefox to not allow for customers/users of their app to access email links by other means!

Forgive me my ignorance, but there was options in a drop down that one could use to make a better search. Like- search must contain these words- must not contain these words- must have these words in title and etc.. FF may not have had it but some browser did. And there were short cuts ie. ( ) around a word or set of them meant they must be used in page exactly as written or { } these should not appear in page. Is there such a thing in FF?

I have asked this question before. I thought it was tied to the website of my local newspaper since that seemed to be where it happened all the time. Tonight I was not on that site. I was in Tools>Add-ons, trying to switch from Plugins to Extensions when it locked up. Symptoms are the current tab will scroll up and down but no links work. No other tabs can be accessed. Tab cannot be closed. Tab shows "Connecting" with rotating busy icon. Firefox must be killed with the task manager. People have suggested deleting cookies and history - no effect unless I'm supposed to perform that action every few seconds in which case it's useless. Another suggestion was to deselect "Use hardware acceleration" in Tools>Options. Also no apparent effect. I thought it might be related to Flash because I was getting a lot of messages about a plugin container not working for that. I disabled Flash and got the "Video without flash" add-on (what a POS!) which doesn't appear to work at all. Any help would be appreciated. I'm getting tired of killing Firefox a dozen times (or more) per day and may have to investigate another browser (Ugh!).

Suddenly after years of successful printing from my browser I cannot! The print on either of my computers approximately 20% of the correct size and I have to copy and paste to Word or download in another format to print. This tells me that it is definitely Firefox issue and I have spent over 2 months trying to diagnose the change?

I am on a laptop with Windows 7 running 35.0.1. I am not sure what other info you may need. This has been happening for a long time now, but Youtube is now forcing HTML5 video playback, so it is now a bigger issue. This is only for firefox and only on HTML5 video.

The video has severe vertical tear, and actually appears to jump back a few hundred milliseconds every half second or so. What can I do to fix this?

EDIT: Looks like updating my graphic drivers did the trick. Easy fix.

My apology in advance, I don't need help, I'm just trying to pass on a suggestion to the interface/dev team.

Get more user data; In Options/DataChoices/Telemetry, put an "Send hardware and customization information, once" checkbox/button.

A lot of people might be willing to share system info once, but don't want someone "looking over their shoulder" all the time. Also, why collect and share the user's IP address? I'd suggest you get it, generated location information, and then dispose of it.


Cheers and thanks, Scott

When selecting "Print" from maps.google.com a print window used to pop up as windowed, not full screen. Now it pops up as full screen. Deleting "Localstore.rdf" used to fix this. After deleting "localstore.rdf" this file is now no longer created. Deleting "xulstore.json" does not fix this issue either.

How do I restore the operation where this "print" page loads as windowed, not full screen?

On a vista machine, I get Adobe update prompts in FF. I click on the Update adobe. An unsafe java message pops up asking if I want to up grade. I say yes, update tells me it updated, FF then goes to "check add on page" and just spins its wheels. this has been going on since FF decided to protect me about 2-3 days ago.
