i like having the menu bar on the firefox desktop, but i hate the way it has been set out. if you enable the menu bar, then it reduces the effective area available for viewing a web page. please don't copy google chrome's layout, chrome is a lousy browser. the old firefox layout is better than the new one. if you guys can't help me then i will simply use the older (3.6) version of firefox. thankyou for your time.

However, every time I try to open the Add-ons manager it just hangs with a small "Loading..." bubble.

Not a pure 'issue' per se, but I couldn't find a better place to get the point across.

This is the third, in a row, major release level of Mozilla that has broken existing plug-ins. While I do realize that there is 'some' need to update the plug-in engine to allow for better usability, better security and (theoretically) better memory/system resource management, this is absurd. Honestly, this is the last massive update to Firefox I'm going to use, at all, if this goes into V7. There is likely no perceptible change to the user base, other than deep and abiding aggravation and annoyance. Indeed, since R4, I've had problems with Google's Toolbar. A product they have since opted to drop further development for, in no small part because of these repeated changes. Can you list for me the specific code changes that were absolutely *necessary* for these later updates that caused the toolbar to become too much work for Google's support?

I realize this is a free product, and you don't actually need just one user's support. I can say, however, that I have tried to fend off gripes and complaints and other friends of mine having 'sworn off' FF for years now. If this continues, I will happily swap over to Chrome support instead, and not look back.

I initially was trying to figure out why most times I am unable to open a pdf (often labelled as "printer-friendly version") from a web page. I went to your help and was suggested to check my plug-ins by going to "manage add-ons". well, it never finishes opening, it just spins and spins until I give up. which is the same thing that happens when i try to open a pdf on a web page.

Hi,

I am using firefox since version 3. But this error haven't changed yet.Now i am using version 6.

When i enter a site using https here is a picture like mozilla.com. http://i.imgur.com/uosNE.png In this picture there isn't a problem.


But when i enter other https sites like wordpress.org or microsoft.com here are the pictures. http://i.imgur.com/WeMl0.png http://i.imgur.com/G087f.png

On the second line it says "Bu site ile aNanızdaki bağlantı...." But it must say "Bu site ile aRanızdaki bağlantı......"


I know this is one letter but in Turkish it is a bad meaning.

I couldn't find a place to report it so I opened this issue here.Hope this error will fix in future releases.
