Please consider changing the way master password works. Please prevent it from asking us every time we log in, this is a pain in the arse. Consider rather making it ask us the first time a password is required to be filled in. Sometimes we just browse and don't need to fill in a password but still the annoying pop up window shows in the beginning, and a lot of the time it takes a while.

Peace Out !

For some reason when i click the bookmarks button i am not seeing all of my bookmarks anymore.

I am not sure if this happened in a update or if something went wrong with the browser. But when i do ctrl-shift-b i can still see they are all there. Just not when i use the bookmarks button.

I accidentally uninstalled MediaHint, which is an addon that isn't found on Firefox. However, the site you get that addon from is now having problems letting me download the addon again, so I'm hoping to do a 'system restore' for Firefox. Ironically, I tried to do an actual system restore in Windows to fix it, but for some reason that didn't get completed successfully.

The last update on April 4, and on other but not all updates, they wiipe out/disable all my access to Firefox. So the only way I can download the new update is go to IE and then to Firefox website to download. There is no need to totally disable this access. May I suggest that your software team fix this problem. Better software can fix everything. Thank you.

Hello.

When opening/focusing the "Find in page" field (Cmd + F), my clipboard content is automatically pasted in the field. Is there any way to get rid of it? about:config? Plugin? Voodoo? I can't remember which version of Firefox introduced this behavior but today I can't stand it anymore, I hate this stuff.

Thank you.

Image shows booting into everyday, newly updated to v.37 FF, with all addons enabled. FF booted into safe mode looks exactly the same. Have already tried disabling WindowBlinds (provider of title bar skin); that made no difference. Have disabled/enabled/disabled hardware acceleration of video. No good. Hardware drivers up-to-date (unless they've released one in the past week). I hate using IE, and I'd rather not load Chrome. My time for playing with multiple browsers has been over since HotJava.

Hi! My first post here, and I couldn't find a right solution for my case.

Here's what happened:

After forcing Firefox to quit and then turning it on again all the tabs that were opened in a previous session became inactive and would load as new/blank tabs without any address in them.

I used to reload Firefox previously and it was acting just fine with showing all of my tabs from the session before the reload. But now all of them are just blank.

Is there a way to make these blank tabs work as previously? Can I somehow restore them? Please help, I have so much important information in these tabs. Thank you!

Hi to you all ! Since latest fedora update (using Firefox with Fedora 21 x64), Firefox was upgraded from FF36 to FF37. Since then, Firefox stopped to "ask" what to do when I'm trying to download a file : instead, the download goes straight to firefox integrated download manager and invariably failed, never even asking me WHERE to download anyway. Preferences are actually setup to "always ask", and downthemall extension doesn't seem to work neither. How can I switch back to the old behavior please ? Thank you !

My website, which has been working for five years, now does not work correctly in Firefox. URL is www.FCSINet.org

The site uses frames. A navigation frame on the left has a list of names; clicking any of them sends a file to the target frame on the right. As noted, this has been working for years.

Now, clicking on a name makes the list disappear from the navigation frame, and nothing is sent to the target frame. The site works as expected in Internet Explorer and Chrome.

When I open any website with Firefox I get multiple "ads by name" popping up all over and can't even read the website. Also, when I try to open most common websites, such as hotmail, gmail or youtube I get a message saying "this connection is untrusted", and with gmail it won't even give me the option to click "I understand the risks" so I can't get on gmail at all!

I have tried all of the following: scanning computer with McAfee, Adwcleaner, Malwarebytes, HitmanPro, Bitdefender, SpyHunter, AdGuard, Avast Browser Cleanup, and Emisoft Anti-Malware. They all show my computer as being completely clean. I have checked my Add ons, plugins and extensions. I have checked control panel "add and remove programs". I have finally refreshed Firefox. When that still did not help, I uninstalled Firefox and re-installed it. Still nothing has made any difference at all :(

This is not affecting any other browser (chrome or IE)

At this point I am completely unable to use Firefox at all, and it's my favorite! Please help.

Thanks

Hello there, I am having a problem where in firefox the gmail page resolution is far to low. The images are very large and the fonts and such are spaced out greatly. Comparing gmail in chrome I can see at least 50% or more of my emails and images are much smaller. I have gone to other sites and there is no resolution problem. Both chrome and firefox show the same for all other sites. It is specific to the gmail page and potentially all google product pages.

Can I fix this problem. It is a bit confusing.

Hi there, let me explain my problem.

We need to offer an book to people buying for donation to congress. ( Order form is here: http://christian-heritage.eserbia.org/order )

So, we have page for selecting persons or institution for donation. Buying goes via PayPal. After patron pay books using PayPal we must know whom to donate payed books.

We have tried following: 1. Patron should select person in the page ( http://christian-heritage.eserbia.org/order ) 2. After this he should click on PayPal button "Pay Now" and this click brings user to PayPal. ... and how to record patron's choice in the form ( http://christian-heritage.eserbia.org/order ) ? After one submit form to PayPal, all data about users selections in the form are lost.

Solution was : On click on the button "Pay Now", before submit, collect patron's selections (using JS) and using AJAX post data to php script for saving to database. After this, submit only books quantity to PayPal for buying. And this works in all popular browsers except Firefox (tested in Chrome, IE, Opera and all works fine.)

More details with codes (code is simplified):


$('#beforesend').on('click', function(){

  var data = 'quantity=' + books_qty;
   $('#result li').each(function(ind){

data = data +"&dat[][users choices from form]" });

     ....
      $.ajax({

url: "app/ordering.php", //Record user choices to database. type: 'POST', data: data, dataType: 'text' }).done(function(dat) { console.log(dat); }).fail(function(jqXHR, textStatus) { console.log("Firefox paranoia..."); return false; });

      $('#buy').submit();       // Without this line AJAX works... but  we can't send post to PayPal.
      return true;

}



I can't see security risk if this AJAX post goes to the same domain as script domain.

As I said, this script worked in all tested browsers except Firefox.


Sorry for my not so best English. :(

Best regards.
