I'm coding a website with Google Maps. I add a bunch of markers to the map and to each of those an infoWindow that is activated by clicking on the marker. Was working late 1/14 and early 1/15 (5 AM ish), but by 11:00 AM it wasn't working. I changed it to simply alert() when a marker was clicked and that didn't work either. The Google page explaining infoWindows has an example map (https://developers-dot-devsite-v2-prod.appspot.com/maps/documentation/javascript/examples/infowindow-simple) and it doesn't work either. My code and the Google example work on Chrome and IE. I did all the restart with add-ons disabled, restarted Firefox fresh, got rid of add-ons to no avail. Please help! I love using Firefox, but will be unable to if this isn't resolved. Thank you, Alan

http://validator.w3.org/ renders as a blank page. Same for https://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/.

Switching to basic page style, I can get to the unstyled content of the page, but why aren't the styles loading?

I allow JavaScript for these pages & disable Adblock Plus, and can't think of any other add-ons that might interfere.

I'll start with the fact that I am using a brand new laptop. Open Youtube, click play, the ads will play just fine but when it comes to the actual video, all I get is the loading circle going round and round, if that.

Videos work in safe mode and on Chrome. Tried disabling add-ons (of which was Shockwave, Open H264 VideoCodec and Widevine Decryption Module), no change. Have reinstalled Flash, restarted multiple times, refreshed Firefox, all to no avail. I'm at my wits end as to why this is happening, especially when ads are playing just fine (typical).

I also seem to be having trouble with videos on Facebook

I can login to this forum (and post a question). I suspect that it's because my e-mail is so very short (7 characters) that some reg-ex filters think it's not valid - but it is. When I enter my e-mail in the login screen, I always get a red suggestion for another domain, but my e-mail ends with just "c.dk" which is valid, and having just to characters before the @ makes the e-mail address very short.

Laptop OS Win8.1 Pro, 64 bit. When I select 'Print', I get the printer selection box. When I select 'Print' or 'Cancel' Firefox immediately fades out and 'unresponding' happens. Requires being shut down by Task Manager, as the red "X" in the upper right corner does not work, either. Print worked fine prior to the last update.

I have made every possible attempt to use all of my powers to provide my question in the most clear, efficient-for-you-the-reader way. Therefore, as thus, the attached images contain text explaining in situ (the images provide the situ portion of in situ) the information my hope is can be addressed by the very generious volunteers at FireFox, who all do a fantastic job that is to be commended, and therefore I do commend it.

I would like make my address bar longer.

I had about 7 or 8 favorite sites in a menu bar across the top of my firefox screen. I did something to make them disappear. I don't know how to get them back. To create them I just grabbed the URL and moved it to this bar, and it would then become a clickable link after that. I can't find out how to create them again.
