I'm not able to pick an item from a 'dropdown' list of choices. The list flashes on and off so quickly that it doesn't pause long enough to make a selection or it doesn't show the dropdown list at all. This was not an issue for me before FF 19.

I'm running Windows 8.

My screen is in the centre and only half used. I cant make it bigger with zoom as this only enlarges the details but not the size of the screen. It eliminates the details on the edge. I had a full screen originally but this only happened yesterday by itself. I need to increase the width.

Hi, I have just brought a new laptop running windows 8 and have installed Firefox. My old laptop was running XP and I didn't have a problem running Firefox on it. I am trying to install Kindle for PC on my new laptop but I keep getting the message "this link needs to be opened with an application". I've never seen this message before on any web browser that I have used. I have "googled" the question and some suggestions are: > reloading Firefox-no point I've just loaded it > downloading through Internet Explorer-which I don't want to do as I want Firefox my browser of choice > Some talk of changing profiles-which I haven't a clue about.

Any help in plain and simple English and assuming I have no prior knowledge (I'm a car driver rather than a mechanic) will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

A message appeared for no apparent reason, saying "Update Failed. Something is trying to trick Firefox into accepting an insecure update. Please contact your network provider and seek help."

This is the second time I got this message. The first time, I tried deleting the Firefox extensions directory. Obviously that didn't work.

About Firefox says there is no update.

After installing Windows 8 the texts in Firefox keep being with bugs. Tab titles, text in pages (specially in FB) have their characters changed. When I have to do some important thing to do I open IE, that works fine (but I still would prefer working with Firefox). Is there something to do about it?

Here I've put some examples (please look at the Firefox image): http://i45.tinypic.com/34fjxty.png http://i48.tinypic.com/5tw8k8.png http://i48.tinypic.com/rjr588.png

I was able to access this website prior to 2 weeks ago. I can access this website on other computers without issues, and I can also access all other websites on this computer.

The following is what is listed in the navigation bar when I get the error message.

http://iphantom.com/wisd/restricted.html?fn=Default&FP=l&ip=10.201.5157&ibip=66.206.97.9&ldu=l&re=0&bu=wps.prenhall.com

I noticed it says wisd/restricted, but I can log on to this website using my wisd computer without issue, and I get the same error message at my home/other locations. So I know that it is not restricted. I have used all the other suggestions "no proxy", shut down firewalls, but nothing has worked.

Any help with this matter will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Cody

Can anyone identify the extension MaggniPeica 1.5? It appeared in my extension list, and the only accompanying info is that it updated today. I have it disable for the moment. I am sure it is probably nothing worrisome, but I do not recognize it, and a Google search turned up nothing except some “almost matches” written in Spanish. Unless those pages were asking about a red jacket, a telephone, and if I knew what day it is; my limited Spanish is useless. Thank you for humoring me.
