I am using a new Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro laptop with a 3200 x 1800 display. Though in general the high-DPI scaling works to keep text sharp for most webpages (something that cannot be said for Chrome or Opera), Flash does not scale with the rest of the website. For example, when I watch a Youtube video, the text, objects, etc. scale appropriately, but the buttons for the flash player are very small.

I am a web developer, and I have a page that is a middle tier interface for my site. It is not used on a daily basis, but it requires about 10 Drop Down Lists, that have about 1200 List Items Each.

The page loads very quickly and displays in firefox, then it becomes unresponsive for about 5 seconds. After that time you can work normally, but if it posts back and needs to render again, the same thing happens. I replicated on multiple PC's in version 25.0

Is this a known issue?

was downloading add ons after install. KeePass would not cancel out from long form fill. I restarted the browser. Ghostry web page and disconnect appeared. Went to search for blog, about 10 min had passed, I noticed my bookmark bar was empty.

Returned to the add on menu. Only six add ons were functioning. Add to this lost it's restart icon. Everthing behind that had to be re-opened. Did that. Restarted the browser. Same dead bunched behind

Add to this. I am setting up my wife's pc. Brand new. It is a LenovoThinkCenter 92z, Windows 8 os.

Not much else. I am loving the 64 bit it runs fine on my Sony w/ Windows 7. ANd that is the way it will stay til end of life.

Like others I am tearing my hair out over repeated Flash crashes (FF25.0, win 8.1).No matter what updates etc - you get the idea....

One solution deep in help is 'Re-initializing the plugins database'. This really works but I wonder is there some way I could run this each time I start up Firefox to pre-empt the problem with Flash?

My PINNED TABS don't work. This is what happens:

Al SET 4 TABS [ie: SCU.net.au; , anz.com.au; telechoice.com.au, 131500,com,.au] {Have I set them in Tools/Internet options in the past? Doesn't look possible in Fox. I PIN them now.} That's a credit union, a bank, my mobile account, and transportation guide. That means four handy helps under my finger tips.

 I also add Firefox

Four four years ... FOR four years, this worked admirably. That was on the old ACER, Windows 7 Pro, 64 bit.

WHAT'S DIFFERENT? Am I talking Windows 8? Are we into the Twilight Zone because I turned 63 last January? BUT ... they stopped working.

WHAT HAPPENS? The TRANSPORTATION link comes up with a STRING: 131500.com.au; ANZ.com.au; SCU.net.au;telechoice.com.au; mozilla.org.au FOX says is can't find this page. OR Transport says "Page does not exist" Which is all true.

"OK, you, I'll reset it again..." And I do and it happens again. Then I discovered this option.... get advice from the good people of Firefox at Mozilla.org

Let me know what you think. PS: To register, the Fox wouldn't let me have "ahq.mozilla" . Said it was "inappropriate". Must be Spanish for "Yahoo"? (Jesus). Why is that:

i would like to know if there is an add on OR if it is possible to filter out news articles i do not want to see. for example, any article with the kardashians i will never be interested to see.

can the browser block these articles on major news websites like the bbc?

can something like this be developed by the open source community or by me if i teach myself how to do it?

or is mozilla firefox set in stone and cannot be edited?

I want to change the program firefox uses to scan files I download. I think it doesn't have my AVG selected. When I download the EICAR test file, I don't get a virus alert. When I scan it afterwards AVG does recognise it as a virus. So I think something isn't set up right and because of that the scan on downloaded files isn't done by AVG.

The virus took over FF mainly, I managed to clean the computer with the help of Bleeping Computer forum, with many cleaning tools, but the virus must have taken the form of some kind of hijacking add on that leached on to FF, and did not disappear. Only when I uninstalled ff including bookmarks and preferences, did it finally disappear (or so it seems, currently). Now I want to get my bookmarks back but I'm afraid once I log in to sync, somehow either through bookmarks or preferences the virus will return. I do have an older computer that is synced to my FF account, but this computer was turned off during the whole virus episode, so I'm also afraid when I start using that computer it will contract the virus as well. Is there a way to sync my FF to an older date, before I got that horrible virus? What can I do? Thanks a lot for all your help!!

Hi,

Facing this bug ever since I have installed firefox. Whenever I scroll up or down on any of the webpages the text/images on the page starts apperaing blurry. I continues to appear blurry unless I change a tab or perform some other action like move mouse pointer on text/image. Basically unless the entire page (displayed content) is redrawn it continues to appear blurry.
