Lastest FF 38 now allows me to easily disable FP protected mode which seems to cure my quite frequent FP crashes. The question I have is just how vulnerable will I be if the protected mode is disabled? I've been using FF with FP disabled for quite a while now with little inconvenience since almost everybody is using HTML. I would appreciate anyone's comments. Thanks

I just upgraded Firefox on Kubuntu (package version 38.0+build3-0ubuntu0.14.04.1). After the upgrade, the entire Firefox UI is scaled up. Tabs, icons, everything. Rebooting did not fix the issue. A screenshot should be attached, although I seem to be having trouble uploading it.

So i accidentally removed the bookmark toolbar, but when i enabled it again, my bookmarks were gone. However they are still in the drop down bookmark menu under "Bookmark Toolbar." How do i get them to show back up on the actual toolbar? I have restarted Firefox, restored defaults in Firefox, tried dragging & doping them onto the toolbar, & just flat out re-adding the sites, but nothing worked. How can i fix this? Thanx in advance!

With the latest Firefox update to versiobn 38.0 the Options drop down has converted to an in-browser list of tabbed options. I want to see if this can be changed back as:

(i) The previous version was much easier to navigate and quicker to adjust as it was so much smaller and simply overlaid the content you were viewing at the time at the top instead of requiring a switch to another whole browser window to be adjusted.

(ii) The previous verison remembers the option you had last used and, for example, I frequently switch cookies on and off in the privacy section depending on when I am using them but now it simply defaults to the first tab and does not remain on the option which you last used.

Thanks.

I have been trying to update Firefox on my desktop since version 33.0 I keep downloading and updating/installing, but nothing changes. Gmail still says the browser isn't supported, and Mozilla says I'm using an older version and need to update. I've downloaded from several different locations - the links provided when it says its outdated and going directly to Mozilla.org to download. I've actually uninstalled Firefox and tried installing instead of updating. That doesn't help. My computer says I have the latest version, but the internet reads an older version. Also my "firefox button" and other add on buttons are missing from the navigation bar, so I can't check "about" to see what version the browser itself says it's running. How do I fix this? I've been using Firefox for years and this is the first problem that I've had that I can't fix.

And....your software check says I'm actually running version 11. So clearly, it's not updating.

I have some panicked people in my office, so I decided to go the source. "They" heard... I do not know where... that Firefox's next update would block ALL SSL, therefore any website we need to log into will be blocked. From what I can see on this support site, nothing is coming that is different from what happened in December 2014 in response to Poodle with the SSLv.3.

I need to settle the ruffled feathers: will Firefox still work with SSL in the future?

Thank you very much for your time :)
