Hi,

I only want to mention that Firefox hangs on download, if I want to download VMWare Player for Windows from https://my.vmware.com/de/web/vmware/free#desktop_end_user_computing/vmware_workstation_player/15_0|PLAYER-1555|product_downloads

After clicking the button for the download destination nothing happens and reacts anymore and I have to kill Firefox. The dialog for choosing the download destination won't be opened. (Winodws 8.1 Home 64bit)

IE 11 works well.

I was on the internet, things going fine, left for a couple minutes, when I came back had a blue screen. Nothing worked but the cursor. Turned computer off/on with power switch, restarted FF but my settings had been changed. Put them back to what I want except for the search bar. It is now beside the address bar not where I want it - below the address bar and all the way across the window. How do I get the search bar under the address bar? I have already looked through all of the Options and Customize, maybe I missed it, so be specific. Thank you, Bernadine

I am having problems with my computer, only two years old. Very slow, ran cleaner, AVG, and all looks ok, but it still slow. I downloaded firefox to see if it was Internet explorer, and it seemed to worsen the problem. My husband said I may be having problems with conflicting browsers, so I want to disable the firefox to see.

there is no way to close mozilla support. There is no drop down menu. I've had computers since the 1980's and never ran into this. Shutting the computer down and starting up produces the mozilla support page. No options available to get out of here or to delete mozilla firefox.

I've used Firefox for years. My toolbar is a work of art with all the links I have. I migrated it from my old computer to this one and fine-tuned it.

In about 30 minutes a tech from HP will take my current new computer back to factory image. I wanted to make a recovery flashdrive and they caused a fluke, so they're gonna' fix it. BUT my toolbar, my precious toolbar. Can it be saved somehow?

I had the combination Greasemonkey and script Social Fixer v15 (SFX) installed and working great in Comodo IceDragon. But an update to CID destroyed everything--installed a default profile. Other one gone. My online backup still backs up Firefox, not CID (yeah, my bad...and I am a backup nut).

So, back using Firefox. But when I install GM and SFX script (multiple times), there is no evidence at all that it is running. None of the effects that it does are in effect and a control button it puts on the screen does not appear.

How do I troubleshoot this? And why did it work so well in CID but not here?

Booking a cruise on this site requires several pages of entry items. The site hangs-up with the first pop-up window that says "Relax while we process your request. Please do not refresh this page or use the back button during this operation." Internet Explorer does not have the same issue - works fine. Norton 360 and Firewall have been eliminated as causing the issue.

I want to remove that button. How do?

It wasn't there, now it is. I'm a keyboard shortcut junkie and that blasted thing gets tab focus in the following keyboard shortcut combo:

Alt + D, Tab... Tab, <Focus is now in search box>

That's not a typeable field, it should not get focus especially since

1. the favorites indicator (a control *at the exact same level of UI* doesn't get focus) 2. It is not a tab-focusable control on the New Tab (Ctl+T, Tab, <search>) thus changing the UI "just because"

(What ever happened to keeping FF slim and lean???)

I may have changed a setting ... Normally when I need to sign back in to my yahoo/att email account I can select "stay signed in for 2 weeks" and that works. But as of today, even though I select the 2 week option, when I leave my email page, I have to sign back in upon returning. Every time..... The "stay signed in" option is currently working on Google Chrome and other browsers, but I'd prefer to continue with Firefox. Thank you

I set the default search engine as Google but it's being redirected to Yahoo. Fix I read states to use: help, troubleshooting information, refresh Firefox (in a pop up window). Pop up window never shows. What's the fix? This is supposedly a virus. Not Yahoo's fault. thanks
