I manage a website (melissachappell.com), which has pdf articles in an iframe on the html page. After the latest update (on 07/08/2015) PDF's are now downloading to my downloads folder instead of opening on the page as intended. I don't like this because 1) it clogs up my downloads folder and 2) the page looks weird now because the iframe is blank. Is there any way to change this to have the PDF open on the page instead (as it did before)?

After an upgrade to v30 the Quick Links page shows fewer links than before.

Is it possible to change the appearance of this page and get back to the number of page icons I had previously or do I need an add-on of some sort?

Before the update, wheneve rI hit the + button to add a new tab, it would boot up with 10 of my most frequented sites labeled directly on the page. Now, only four appear. I've been unable to figure out how to modify this so it's been sort of difficult and annoying. Every time Firefox updates - it changes something I like, and they don't really offer the choice to not change these things.

The pinterest button was "disabled by the administrator" according to your add-on page. Since I am the only one using this PC and I did not disable it, how can I reinstall it? Several other add-ons have disappeared as well, so I think they are probably also disabled.

Thanks for any assistance.

I would like to use the Console as a REPL for learning JavaScript, but at the same time be able to see HTTP requests on the Network Monitor. But I don't see how to do that — it appears I can only have one or the other open at one time. Or am I mistaken?

gisteravond kreeg ik op mijn desktop een bericht van dringende update (het leek van Firefox) daarna zie ik alleen iets dat lijkt op internet explorer er wordt gevraagd om die als standaard browser te installeren maar ik kan niet de startpagine veranderen want die staat vast ingesteld ook bing staat vast ingesteld als zoekmachine ipv Google kan ik via een usb-stick Firefox herinstalleren?

ben ik gehackt of is dit een aanval door internet explorer en bing?

Bij voorbaat dank! Met vriendelijke groeten, Jozef Verplaetse

It has only been in the past 2 days. Before no issues at all.. I have tried clearing - cache, cookies, reinstalled FF. restarted the computer. turned off each add-on individually. Started in safe mode.

Oh, and in Fishworld a certain part of it has stopped working too but is still ok in IE.. See the speech bubbles top right of top pics to compare the IE and FF responses..

I am totally out of ideas and any assistance you could send my way would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers, Sharon

Edit:

It seems to work after restarting or logging off, so that's fixed now. Hope it helps anyone with the issue.

Have been trying all weekend to install the latest adobe flash player, as I get all the notices to install the latest version ending with 203, can't play hardly any video . I continually get the error msg. while trying to install adobe. An error has occurred ...and must close etc. I was able to install the previous version, using an offline installer, but when I look for one on web, they all have malware warnings so I don't use. What to do. Adobe is no help at all! Can you give me something new to try? I tried many suggestions offered by other users, none work or apply. Tried un-installing adobe, clean install. Tried enabling adobe in Firefox, all that. Any help as always is much appreciated!

I am getting the "Untrusted Connection" error message for a site I visit daily with the only option being "Get me out of here!". I am using Firefox version 39.0 and have Windows 8.1. I found a thread telling how to fix this problem by deleting the cert8.db file. I have used this method previously and it worked then but it didn't this time. Tried looking elsewhere for help but all I seen was talking about the time/date being off. Mine are bother correct however. Any help would be very appreciated.
