Hello guys.

I wanted to chat with somebody about this but I cannot find anymore the way to do that. So I write. Since the last update, Firefox 40 for Desktop, when I write something on the address bar NOTHING is visualized. There is some kind of white or very light blue square above the text and I do not see what I write! I can see the suggestions below (the drop menu which opens below, with all the list of possible websites which may correspond, which I have visited in the past), but NOTHING on the address bar. It is quite annoying. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. Same story.

What should I do?

Thanks :)

When I open firefox it restores my previous tabs, which I want. It also opens, every single time, windows with tabs that I've visited but closed in previous sessions. I don't want these windows restored, only the windows and tabs that were open during my last session. In particular, they are pinterest tabs that I have visited, but don't want to see every time I open my browser. Does anyone have any advice? I don't really want to disable "restore previous session" because I also have a lot of tabs that I don't want to lose.

This feature has been present in Firefox for over a decade and since most of the time that mice have had wheels. It disappeared on the PC I am guesting on (W8.1) since the last time I used it (10 weeks ish), rumours suggest since v38. Mouse wheel works as a wheel but not as a button. CTRL + Left Click does the desired job. Cannot use Wheel Click to delete Tabs.

(I wrote a long thing about this and was told "access denied" when I hit post question, will try again. Sorry if you already got one.)

Some videos have no audio, specifically when played in Firefox. From what I gather, it is HTML5 videos specifically. Other browsers play them just fine, but I would prefer for this one to work. Switching to 2.0 audio allows them to play with sound, but I have a 5.1 setup and am not really willing to switch it back and forth for much longer.

There was some Reddit poster that had the same problem with Chrome at some point. The videos he linked have the same outcome on my machine, but in his case the problem was solved switching from 2.0 to 5.1... (Shrug.)

No audio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEN7DTdHbAU Audio works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Np_sWey3mSI

The whole post: https://www.reddit.com/r/chrome/comments/27ho7u/some_youtube_videos_have_no_sound/

They thought the problem was with their onboard audio, but I'm not so sure. (This is a Sound Blaster ZxR, if it matters.) Maybe in their case it was, but here I have three other browsers that play these videos without issue. Why would my sound card cause a problem with only one browser?

I would like to get this one working so I don't need to use different browsers for different things.

Firefox crashed after some computer low memory issue. When I reopened I expected to find the tabs from the previous session in the restore session tab. There is just a blank box with no tabs from the previous session (please see attached). I cannot click on the restore session button. Additionally, the restore previous session in History is greyed out. What can I do about this? I need those tabs back. Thanks!

Firefox did an update to 'seamlessly work with Win 10'. When Firefox restarted, ALL MY BOOKMARKS WERE GONE. I went to the library and tried to restore bookmarks. It won't do it! I have a entire computer backup system, but have NO CLUE where to find my bookmarks. So frustrated. I've used Firefox for a ton of years and never had my bookmarks disappear.

Hi, maybe this problem's been here since forever but I've noticed it now that I'm using Windows 10.

I have Firefox 40 and the close, maximize and minimize buttons do not follow the system settings. I have changed the size of the titlebar to 8 (from default of 9 I believe): http://i.imgur.com/ywNuobB.png

And as you can see Firefox ignores this and uses the default value thus making those buttons bigger than they should, pic for comparaison: http://i.imgur.com/sLccmk6.png Also the tab sizes and text seems too big in comparison with Edge.

AFAIK I don't have any extension that may produce this problem so I do believe this is a bug. Any plans on fixing it? Any suggestions on how I can fix it myself with an addon or some config settings?

Hi,

Is there a single way to have both Firefox's Bookmarks and History indexed via Windows 8's "Indexing Options" ?

Btw, If I'm not incorrect, I see there's a places.sqlite DB that holds both the Bookmarks and History.

You can get technical if needed to explain the procedure(s).

Thanks for your comments and suggestions.

If you read long texts with a web browser, it is easier for the eye to have something that guides them.

One simple solution is to read at the bottom of the screen and scroll down one line after the other.

Up to now I could not find a way to scroll exactly one line with firefox. Cursor-Down moves more than one line in my setup.

A plugin which provides a ruler or something like this would work, too.
