My PC runs fine and no issues, Recently upgraded to Widows 10 - no issues. Suddenly (and quite weirdly) I have this fault. I needed to activate new Reason software on Propellerheads.se site. The site loaded and I saw the image for about 2 secs and then the screen went black. The music I was paying continued (so I knew Windows was still running) but the PC was unresponsive - Alt.Tab, Start, Ctrl/Alt/Delete non of these worked. The Sleep button worked but when I woke Windows the screen remained black. Only recourse was a hard reset. So I tried to access Propellerheads.se with Microsoft Edge - it worked fine. So I uninstalled Firefox, made Edge default client and did the activation. Then reinstalled Firefox but still the same problem. I have reset default user agent, deleted all history/cookies etc, refreshed Firefox, run in safe mode, deactivated plugins. Still Propellerheads.se will not load successfully. I don't want to run Edge - my preference is Firefox - BUT!!!

Hi all,

as the title says ,when a program asks to open a webpage my old firefox installaion opens (with the plugins it used to have e.t.c.) and not the current one i use which is firefox portable latest version.

Does this mean that i have not uninstall previous version correctly ?

By searching around i think maybe it has to do with the profiles?

I am not an expert so i do not know. Please tell me your suggestions.

Thank you for your time reading this.

Regards, the_observer.

Anyone know how to fix the layout issue on Amazon.com Daily deal website? Over the past week when I installed the new update for firefox it changed the layout only on this page which is highly annoying. I have tried everything and nothing seems to be helping. I have attached photos to describe the issue I am having. If the photos do not load you can find them at the links below.

I've been unable to add new bookmarks for a while now - either by click the star next the bookmarks icon in the toolbar (the blue star flying into the toolbar animation happens, however the star remains empty) or from the menu from right clicking a tab. I can add/edit bookmarks if I go into the bookmarks manager.

I know this issue has been raised before, however none of the answers posted (that I've found at least) have helped.

I have tried the places.sqlite solution. It did not help.

I have tried the places maintenance addon. It did not help.

thank you

It gets much worse than what can be seen in the screen shot image (provided below). This does not happen with other browsers (i.e. Safari). This also occurs on the far right side of my toolbar.

The screen shot mentioned above failed to upload, so here is a description of what is happening:

Blinking grey squares on the far right side of the browser (the scroll bar and parts of the web page) and on the far right end of the tool bar.

As the title above, the address bar goes all over the place randomly when browsing every minute or so.

The issue is not confined to one site (i.e. not just Youtube), and it does not always occur on all pages on that one site (i.e. one Youtube video may cause the UI graphical glitch, but another Youtube video won't).

Refer to images for further clarification.

When I print a webpage to an .xps or .pdf file, it does create a new file but File Explorer says it is 0 KB in size. These .pdf files will open, but they are blank--the only thing that displays is the outline of a page, with nothing within the outline. When I print to an .xps file, File Explorer says it contains 0 KB. When I try to open it, I receive a message saying that the XPS viewer cannot open the file. These things just started for me several days ago after I installed Firefox 40.0 on a new Toshiba Satellite laptop with the Windows 10 Home OS. I have the current version of Flash Player (in fact, I just tried redownloading and reinstalling the current version; that did not solve the problem). I tried changing the default print-to file format to .pdf, but that did not solve the problem. I contacted the Windows support chat site; they told me it was not a Windows issue. Is this a Firefox issue? If so, can you tell me how to fix the problem, please?

Thanks, ssavage

I have used Nectar both as my homepage and as an added toolbar for many years now. I have always it to be simple and easy-to-use (a great advantage for an ageing technophone!) and it was particularly useful in letting me know what stores I could shop with via Nectar to increase my Nectar points. Points were also accumulated for carrying out 'searches', another useful feature.

Over the past few months I have experienced continuing difficulties with this to the point where I contacted Nectar. They kindly added 'free' points to my account to compensate for the fact that I had been unable to use the toolbar or to shop via Nectar. They suggested I uninstall and then reinstall the upgraded version of their toolbar. I have tried to do so on several occasions but have been unsuccessful in being able to access online stores via Nectar and also to add to my points total using the Nectar search facility.

Having tried again, unsuccessfully, to reload the toolbar, I now find a message from Firefox saying "Nectar Toolbar could not be verified for use in Firefox. Proceed with caution."

Can you please verify this product so that I can continue its use? I do not know how else to over come this issue and would like things to be as simple as they were before this issue arose.

I hope someone can help - but please bear in mind my state of technophobia and explain things in a very simple manner for me (ie without the use of computer 'jargon' and technical wording!).

Thank you and hoping you can help.
