I continually get the developer tools appearing when I am trying to navigate FF. This only happens when I am using my trackpad, and seems, somehow, to be related to moving it from right to left. I can't find any way of making that consistent though. FF37.0.1 and Windows 8. Doesn't seem to be related to any add ons... all the developer tools (devtools.*.enabled) are set to false (so why the inspector keeps popping up I do not know). Never a problem when using the mouse - only the track pad.

Why does Firefox 37.0.1 on iMac running 10.10.3 takes almost one minute to connect to google.com?

Safaria and Chrome are working fine on this iMac. But Firefox has serious problems connecting to google domain web sites. Other web sites work fine. But if trying to connect to gmail, google.com, google drive or google maps the firefox hangs for a long time saying "connecting". The problem is not deterministic, but appears to always happen at startup. I tried to debug this using firefoxDeveloperEdition using network monitoring. I could only get the problem to happen once and the network monitor did not reveal any long lasting requests. The request all completed in less then 500 msec but the total query took around 30 seconds.

Any ideas what is going on? I have done a reset and a safe start without any success.

In Yahoo mail premium-add free I can no longer access or close tabs. Messages open in tabs, tabs persist but I need to exit mail to close them. I can get back to In box and other categories but not the tabs. I figured it was Yahoo until I noticed the functions work with Chrome. Note: The free yahoo does not have multiple tabs and appears to be working normally. Regards

OS: MacOS Yosemite 10.10.3. Can't access the webpage http://www.callutheran.edu/Academic_P.../lzipmast.htm which uses a PDB plugin. I don't know if there are any plugins for this format (s?), in FireFox or anything else for that matter. Safari reports that "the file sype is not specified", so perhaps there's an error in the webpage itself (humor: "those sloppy biologists with their $5 million-plus electron microscopes, but they don't know anything about computers..")

The last update to Firefox has created a problem with the tabs. The tabs now have multiple images of the websites favicon showing. When I open a tab and go to a website, when the favicon shows it will then create multiple images of that favicon. When I click off the tab and back on it, they disappear but this obviously should not be happening and didn't start until the last update was installed. I even did a Refresh and that didn't fix the problem. I tried to upload an image but the area just has a spinning wheel and the image size was only 5.41kb. Apparently that isn't working so well either. It appears Mozilla Firefox has created some bugs for it's browser and help forum.

If anyone knows how to fix this or to get Mozilla to fix their problem, it would be appreciated. Thank you!

After removing some adware I got yesterday, Firefox is still somehow buggy.

I've made deep scans in my drives with several anti-malware programs and with antivirus; and I've uninstalled Firefox, deleting the old profiles too, and made a new clean install.

However, when installing NoScript and/or Ghostery add-ons, they don't seem to work. I think this might be caused because of traces of the malware that I got recently.



Here are the problems:

-NoScript 2.6.9.21: the add-on shows no options, instead shows blank spaces. It seems to be blocking all the javascript, notice how YouTube doesn't show at all. (Img #1). When disabling the add-on and restarting Firefox, all websites with Javascript show well again. So, the add-on seems to be working, but not being configurable.

-Ghostery 5.4.3: the Ghostery button on the sidebar doesn't appear, and I can't figure out how to make it appear. Furthermore, in the add-ons page, if I click ghostery settings, what I get is a blank page. (Img #2)


I've tried to install the add-ons both from the developer page and from the Firefox add-ons page. I've even tried with older versions of the add-ons, just to make sure it wasn't a version issue.



I think I might be missing something, what do you think I can do to solve these problems?

In case you need them, got the scan logs of the antispyware and antivirus programs, and can post a HJT log.
