Started a couple of days ago. Tried uninstalling Firefox and downloading and installing a new copy. Didn't help. Every time I click the back button the whole history list drops down. I have to click someplace to close it. Super annoying. Did not start immediately after adding a new add on or anything.

I have been updating my Gallery page (and other pages as well) for past few days. Firefox is my default browser. Suddenly today after more revisions on the Gallery page, it shows a very old Gallery page instead. Other pages show up to date changes. Other browsers (Chrome and Explorer) show changes of all pages. What can I do to amend this?

Prevent alphabetic keystroks from invoking Find function

I'm sure some people find this feature useful -- any time you hit an alphabetic key, it opens the Find field and puts the focus in there. This changes your position on the webpage, which can be extremely frustrating if the webpage is long. It's not quite the same problem as in http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1137893; that entry describes similar behaviour when focus is in a text box, which I interpretted as a data entry field. If I'm wrong, then perhaps it does describe the same problem, and I apologize for the double post.

In any case, I'm spending more time finding my way back to my place in a webpage than I am spending to mentally parse the content itself In fact, it's become almost impossible to do the latter because of the fragmented focus.

Hopefully, there is a way to disable this feature? I'm using FF 49.0.1 on Windows 7.

Good evening,

I recently had my Mozilla Firefox automatically update itself and since this has happened I keep getting lines across my screens on a constant basis. Whenever I scroll, and not even quickly, the page will be full of lines. Sometimes it's temporary and then it'll go back to normal or it will be permanent. This is obviously causing issues for me at the moment and I'd like to know how it can be resolved.

When I open the web site "gameduel.com" the screen is ok but when I sign in to play the content is very tiny. I can enter the website with internet explorer and it works fine, I use Mozilla as my default browser so it would be great if it would work using Mozilla.

If I use Private Browsing Mode, all is well except I can't save passwords, but when I turn it off and browse "normally" browsing is impractical.

This has been an ongoing problem with Firefox for a long time. A month or so back I set Private Browsing Mode under Privacy and browsing was like it used to be, fun. However this mode won't allow for password saving, or changing. I changed back to normal browsing mode and it took almost 10 minutes to get to the site I was trying to log onto, and when I got there for some reason FF wouldn't/couldn't recognize the Log In link {which it does recognize in Private Browsing Mode}. I can't say I blame those who have switched to Chrome or other browsers. Loyalty only goes so far people, and I'm getting close to empty.

I have been trying to get here for 3 hours to ask a menial question. I was attempting to sign in using my email and password for sync and this led to finding out my AT&T mail was on the fritz which then led to me not receiving reset emails anyway when attempting to reset my password for this account which I had not yet created. PHEW!!

So, my original query.

Is there an app in the works for Android Firefox to facilitate streaming from the web to an Amazon Fire Stick?

If I wasn't so stoopid I could have wrote the app myself in the time it took to ask this question.

When I am viewing lots on Ebay, in Firefox only, moving from one part of the lot to another, to check the description, I keep being flipped to a New Tab in Google. This does not happen in Explorer. Why does it do this in Firefox? This has been happening for the last two weeks, as far as I know, with no other change. Firefox is normally quicker and more convenient, but not with this fault. I need to check through all parts of the descriptions, either to buy, or to gain information for a book I am writing, and this error prevents me.
