I must have changed something accidentally because now every time my cursor is on any photo on a web page I've downloaded (for example, an article with a photo that you can click on to watch a video), the photo duplicates itself in a larger version. As soon as I take the cursor off the photo, the enlarged version goes away. One problem with this is that I can't click on the photo to watch a video (without playing cat and mouse until I finally catch the arrow). I drives me crazy. Can you help? Dorothy Coe de Hernandez

A few days ago, something strange happened and a left right bar appears on all web pages. I didn't install anything I know of. Checked firefox addins but don't see anything. It also doesn't do anything either.

I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Still there. Virus scan, nope. I'm worried this is a keystroke/password recorder and I have to stop using Firefox forever.

Please help.

Many sites do not get automatically added to the list of saved passwords - possibly a security precaution on the part of the sites in question, to prevent hacking of usernames and passwords. Since my memory is not what it used to be (and never was!), it would be helpful to be able to manually add websites, usernames, and passwords to the saved PW list. Then, they could be securely looked up, protected by the Firefox Master Password, when they can't be remembered and don't automatically fill in on a web site. This would be vastly preferable to continually needing to re-register to a web site when a password is forgotten.

Long sentence,sorry.I am using a website that allows the option to advance a page.If I save the page in favorites the advance feature works unless I close the browser first then I have to start from the beginning all over again and since I am on page 390 or so it takes awhile.How do I save the "next" option in my favorites so that I can proceed from where I left off where I was when I saved the page?Here is a link to the page where I left off.Thanks,Ron Gordon http://www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/fsa/item/fsa1998011829/PP/resource/

Due to the timing, I think the addition of the new antivirus is connected to my problem of accessing the Facebook sign in page but I don't know why I can always access a list of Facebook pages. Also don't understand that as long as I restart my computer then I can access the Facebook sign in page and sign into Facebook.

i did test it on opera whether i would have same issue, but it works fine, therefore it must be something wrong with my browser

Is the Delicious social service currently broken for Firefox 45.0? When I open the sidebar, or try to use the "share" button I get: "Firefox is unable to connect to Delicious right now."

The "Try Again" button doesn't seem to have any effect. The problem seems to be happening both in Windows and Mac OS.

I've tried removing and re-adding the service (restarting the browser in between), but it didn't help.

Any ideas?

As page is loading a drop down box appears letting me know that it stopped page from being redirected. My choice is "allow" or "X". When I "allow", the drop box closes and I'm still on the same page. I minimize page to see if there is a pop-up behind and nothing is there. When I have multiple tabs open, sometimes there is a mini freeze as a page refreshes and the drop down box appears that I did not "allow". Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

as I load my site www.allanstudios.ca the status bar reveals a message saying "waiting for strideco.se..."

it takes quite a while for this to go away and the home page finally loads.

I believe this might be a hack of some type. I've tried to research that url with no luck. I have no idea what it is or why I'm connecting to it.

Is there any way of getting more information on that for instance, is there a log with more information in Firefix?

Any help appreciated
