The pop up appears with every new tab. It has an extremely small delete "X" icon if you can find it...The pop up interferes visually with every tab and must be carefully manually deleted each time. It is always located in the lower left bottom of the screen. It is a window about 3 inches square. It began last week with an automatic download. I want it removed or I will be swiftly returning to Explorer or perhaps Google Chrome...Thanking you in advance

When i access a website with javascript ( i used http://www.gdv.de/ as a test site ) Firefox freezes and needs to be shut down by task manager. This problem started with Firefox upgrading to 16.0 or 16.1. I tried to reinstall it several times without success. Disabling java in preferences solves the problem. I tried uninstalling java completely, problem persists. When Firefox starts it opens one or two tasks called plugin container for firefox.

i click on an foo/bar/name.mp3, the file will be saved as _foo_bar_name.mp3 instead of name.mp3. This is not useful for me and I would like to have the old behaviour back. Correcting the filename everytime is _not_ a feasible option.

I believe I am seeing this old bug (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=449219) in Firefox ESR v10.0.3. Could this be a regression or new version of the same bug? Or is the ESR build separate from the normal trunk releases and could this bug not have been patched onto the ESR branch?

This just started today for me though after I had some problems with a plug-in called Grease Monkey un-enabling itself but that problem fixed itself

I was never given a admin password with this computer so I haven't been able to change or update anything for the year I have owned it. I need any and all options I have on correcting this issue. I am wondering if the "Update Firefox" option does NOT appear in the Update tab of Device manager for Firefox, because I am not administrated of Linux / system supervisor or running in Root. Please advise me of the best way to fix these issues. You should also know that because of the dated browser, this system barely moves, adobe crashes and other problems. Thank you in advance for your time and willingness to help. Penny Ramirez

I clicked Download and the following appeared in a box on the left side while the main part of the page indicated it was downloading.

Firefox Instructions Click the "Allow" button on the top left-hand side of your screen. Then click "Install Now" which will appear towards the middle of your screen. You should see "Coupon savings has successfully been installed".

There was no Firefox 'Allow' button on the page. I waited 15 minutes on this bSaving page to see if the download would complete but it still showed it was running. Im sending this message to bsaving.com also because I've no idea what's going on here. Can you help me? Louise Bell

I'm using Xubuntu 12.04 LTS amd64

I've used FF for years and never had this problem.

I try to load a page - it loads almost 100% but then a few images here and there don't load at all. I can right-click and select the options "show image" or "load image" but none of them work. Reloading the page brings the exact same problems - the same images that didn't load at the first attempt won't load when I reload the page.

Google Chrome and Opera (both for Linux, obviously) load the pages correctly, without any problems with the images. If I copy a URL that has problems with the images from Firefox onto Chrome or Opera, it works fine on the other browsers. Therefore, there is no problem with the URL itself.

Another very annoying problem is the Shockwave plugin: if I need to use a mic, a webcam or any device that uses shockwave, the Plugin prompts me to allow or deny the access to the device. But it's "unclickable" and the plugin gets stuck.

I believed that I had got rid of MyStartincredibar as the main search engine, about a week ago, which had somehow found it's way into my Firefox. However it is still coming up as a secondary search engine on occasions and I cannot see how to get rid of this. I have also had problems with aLot search bar and also babylon but think these have gone. Is there a cleansing tool to get rid of these unwanted sites? Help appreciated.
