I am able to browse any and all websites but the tab titles of the pages opened by me all show either "Connecting..." or "New Tab" I am having a hard time keeping track of which tabs have which pages opened since all show the same text as mentioned above.

I have attached an image file showing the problem. Keep in mind that all the tabs have web pages loaded in them.

What might be the problem?

I have an en_US Firefox and I like English as the default UI language. However, I only want to spell-check in my native language (Czech). I have cs_CZ dictionary installed and I basically want to get rid of the en_US menu item in the context menu > Languages. (Because some text areas will somehow automatically switch to en_US and I don't want to right click and select the right language all the time.)

Can I just delete the en_US dictionary from my Firefox profile or will that cause issues?

Thanks.

Our <strong><em>Carmina Burana</em></strong> concert series begins next Friday, at the Campbell United Methodist Church. Rehearsals have been wonderful and great fun!  We're really enjoying singing this piece, and are very much looking forward to dress rehearsals next week with soloists, percussionists and the Ragazzi Boy's choir! <br />
									<br />
									It's not often that we perform with as many different kinds of percussion instruments as are called for in <em>Carmina</em>. Since the percussionists are typically in the back of the orchestra, it may not be easy to see what the instruments look like, especially when they are small or unusual. Just in case you are curious, I have included some images of some, at least, of the percussion instruments. Top to bottom down the right side are triangle, raganella (ratchet), glockenspiel, sleigh bells, snare drum, suspended cymbal, castanets, tubular bells, and the last image is xylophone with crotales (antique cymbals) across the top. Our performance will not have an entire orchestra between the audience and the performers, so you will be able to easily see the percussionists and pianists at work, not to mention the soloists.<br />
<br />

									The instrument list also calls for two pianos and a celeste. The pianos will be two Roland HP605 professional level electronic pianos, lent for this performance by two of our Bass choir members, David Goodman and Kim McCall. We rehearsed with the pianos this week - not only do they have amazing sound but with a flick of a switch they turn into the celeste, or the flute or the horn!<br />

From the web page "Where to find and manage downloaded files in Firefox", with the url: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/where-find-and-manage-downloaded-files-firefox#firefox:win8:fx43 under the "Table of Contents", the 1st item is: "How do I access my downloads?". Within this section the following is stated: "During a download, the Downloads button changes into a timer that shows your download's progress. The timer changes back into an arrow when your download is complete." Since my Downloads button remains static, I am unable to determine a download's progress. How does one encourage the Downloads button to, in fact, change into a timer?

This issue started happening right after updating to Firefox 42, I think. What happens is that every time my Windows 10 laptop boots up and I start Firefox (and sometimes after signing out of and back into my Windows profile), the browser acts as if it just updated, and it also checks for addon compatibility [see image 1]. I get the "Firefox + Windows 10 = Perfect Together" page, and my homepage has been reset to "search.domaincentar.com" [see image 2],although it shows a Google logo. My theme and some miscellaneous browser settings are gone too.

I change all these settings back to the way they were, but this happens every time I reboot without fail. Here are the things I've tried: Refreshing/resetting Firefox. Creating a new Firefox profile. Deleting prefs.js and other possible culprit files in my current profile. (no user.js present) Reinstalling Firefox completely. Updating to Firefox 43 beta. Deleting the Mozilla folder from %appdata%.

...and different combinations of all the above. The bare fact is that even after a COMPLETE wipe of Firefox from my laptop, including removing all my profile info to a separate location, this keeps happening. The homepage being reset to a weird search page seems like adware or malware, but I haven't been able to detect any via scan or looking in my addons. I am truly baffled, and at your mercy.

This new feature in version 43, as shown in the picture, is not very useful to me, as I am more often than not visiting a particular page on a site, rather the the domain of the site itself. Whereas before I would just have to type a letter and hit enter, I now have to hit the arrow down and hit enter. I know it's not a great deal of work but these little things annoy me. Is there an about:config change to get rid of this new behaviour?

I have just downloaded firefox 43. In the past, I could visit many of my favorite sites by simply typing a few of the first words. For example, by typing the letters "sl" firefox would immediate suggest slashdot.org and I could simply press the right key and type enter. But it seems the update to firefox 43 wiped out this functionality (or worse, my browsing history). Is there a way to restore the old behavior? This really sucks. I don't want to type the whole site name every time...
