When I click the downloads button in the top right hand corner of the screen, the downloads box does not appear. However, moving my cursor over where it should be changes the cursor, and clicking opens a recently downloaded document - it's like it's invisible. Opening the downloads managed via the menu still works.

Also, clicking the scroll wheel on my mouse doesn't change the cursor to the small arrow which allows you to scroll around a point - but moving the mouse does scroll the page. Again, as if the graphic is invisible.

I noticed this yesterday, but can't think of anything on my computer that I changed.

I've tried disabling all add-ons, and resetting firefox as per the troubleshooting recommendation, but it didn't work.

It's a minor annoyance, but could anyone help?

Thanks!

Also, the "automatically add" troubleshooting button on this 'Ask a Question' page doesn't seem to display anything - possibly the same problem?

The download icon, to the right of the search box, used to show download progress with an ETA for downloads below the arrow. after update, it no longer does this, it stays a grey/black arrow with no information. Is there a way to return previous icon information to the bar?

Update: have tried 'clean' uninstall/reinstall (deleting preferences, etc) and the problem persists.

One day firefox messed up and I opened it to find the default everything. Default home and bookmarks on the tabs. I restarted firefox, and I got all my stuff back. However, in one of the folders where I had a bunch of bookmarks (2 folders with several in each, and a bunch of free floating ones) most of them vanished. I now have only seven of the bookmarks displayed. The bookmarks are still there though, because when I visited one of my previously bookmarked sites, the star was lit up, and it still showed the folder where it was before. The missing bookmarks are also not displayed in show all bookmarks.

In conclusion: My bookmarks are not displayed in one of the folders in the bookmarks menu. However, they still exist on the system. How can I get the to display again in the folder on the menu?

Since the latest Firefox update - about Firefox indicates I have release 23.0.1 on Windows 8 - some of the features on ft.com no longer work. In particular the drop down menus won't drop down. I have tried IE and have no problems with the ft.com site. I have therefore contacted ft.com and they have said they are not aware of an problem from their end. I have therefore taken it upon myself to ask you to review the situation and contact them to resolve the issue. I do not believe I can be the only reader of the FT that cannot access the pages correctly via Firefox - if I am I need a solution. Firefoy has until now been so much better than IE in my opinion!

I am running Firefox 24 on Windows 8 Pro 64-bit in desktop mode. I have QuickTime Plug-in 7.7.4 installed. But when I try to go http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/ and play trailers all I get is black box and nothing is playing. No prompting to authorize a plugin, no error message, nothing. I tried to see if it will work with other browsers, so I tried Google Chrome. I went to the website, got prompted to authorize the plugin and then was able to play trailers without any problems. The page won't even render correctly under IE. So, it makes me conclude that it is a browser problem. Can you help me please? Thanks.

When I start Firefox, the top ~ 1/3 of the screen of msn.com under the address bar is blank. This does not happen on any other webpage. It does not happen when I access msn.com from Internet Explorer. I downloaded the newest version of Firefox today and this did not help.

What do I need to change in order to see the top portion of the msn.com home page?

My operating system is Windows 8. I am using Firefox version 24.0.

This started fairly recently, the past couple weeks.
