Hi Everybody,

I just had a strange thing starting to happen yesterday. Now when i type an adress in the address bar , after i press the second character the text disappears so i dont see what i am typing. If i continue text starts showing but only 'cut in half' and after the 13th character is typed then all shows again.

I reinstalled the latest version 40.0.2 and still the same problem however when i start firefox in safe mode.... it all works fine.

This only happens with Firefox and in the address bar... all the rest seems to be working fine

any idea of what can be causing the issue and how can i fix it?

Many thanks in advance

I have some sites, where firefox is always crashing, while surfing on the sides. On these sides firefox crashes anytime. On Youtube.com, I can always reproduce that firefox crashes: If i watch a video on youtube, firefox crashes anytime during watching the video, and always if i select another video from the side listed videos. Firefox just closes.

I had the problem on older firefox versions. some vresions the problem don't occour. ar the moment, with firefox 39, 40 and 40.0.2 the problem occours always. I had in the past (over month ago) the same problem with a 3x.0 version of firefox, before I installed the operating system new. But now the problem is back. The problem occours also in save mode and with a new installation of firefox (also with new user profile folders). At the moment, I have no more new ideas. Maybe you can help me. If you need further hardware od operating system intormations from me, please feel free to ask me. I'm sure, that I have all updates installed which are available. Maybe you have a idea. My operating system is Arch Linux, so I can also give you terminal outputs, for diagnostic. thanks in advance.

OK, so I have ALWAYS upgrade to the latest version of Firefox ever since beta 3 (0.3).

The old Synch feature looked like a chore so I didn't bother.

I engaged what I think is the present Synch feature as it only requires a username and password.

I want to also synch my extensions. I viewed the article. It shows the old "Options" presentation (I think) as mine these days shows up in its own tab.

Thar ain't no "Extensions" option... Only Tabs, Bookmarks, Passwords, History, Add-ons, Preferences

1) Have "Extensions" been folded in to "Add-ons"? I suspect so, but I learned not to fly by presumptions if possible...

2) What are the "rules of engagement" for multiple computers? Does the last computer shutting Firefox down rule, or are we always merging everything, or is there some other algorithm???

Many Thanks- -Bruce

The most recent update of Firefox removed and/or disabled my Password Box, with which I store all my passwords. Presently with a choice between dumping Password Box or my beloved Firefox, I would dump Firefox because ALL my passwords are there. This is the worst reason to migrate to Google Chrome, which I hate and avoid almost as much as MS IE, using them only when absolutely necessary. Is Firefox trying to make it unpalatable?

After clicking on a link to a page that opened in a new tab, all of the tabs in my browser window stopped working properly (i.e. I couldn't close them, make new tabs, or go to a previous page), and restoring my session turned them into "new tabs" with no way of accessing their previous content (the number of tabs is the same). See attached image for reference, the Firefox tab is the only one made after the session restore. The browser thinks it restored the session properly, as the "restore previous session" option is greyed out. Restoring a backup version of my profile folder to one from two days ago just reverts the saved history, notably, the "recently closed tabs" list was not reverted to the backup version and shows tabs that I closed earlier today. These tabs function normally.

I switched from using a complete theme to just a regular theme (the complete one is no longer supported with the 40.0.2 update). When I opened a private window I am presented with the default Firefox theme with no way to change to any of the other themes I attempt to apply. Is there something I'm missing or was this a change that occurred through the numerous updates to Firefox while I was still using the complete theme? I'd like to use the theme in both normal and private windows is this possible?

When I click a date number I now get Authorization Required You need a userid and password for accessing this calendar

I use to, and if I go to http://128.2.204.57:5555/default and click a date i get a web authorization pop-up saying A username and password are being requested by http://128.2.204.57:5555. The site says: "iCal Login"

What changed? and is there an option to disable it?
