Why do I constantly have to worry about one of your updates ruining something I want to use.

I am beginning to hate software developers at Microsoft, Adobe, Java, and now Mozilla.

And please explain why incompatible extensions cannot be removed? I want to hear this one.

I have a recurring issue that's really annoying: my left/right arrow keys (including CTRL+arrow keys) occasionally and randomly fail to work when entering text in certain text boxes on certain websites. This never occurs in "simple" unformatted text boxes (Facebook, search boxes, this very box I'm typing in...), but unpredictably happens in more complex ones (WYSIWYG editors, new youtube comments...).

I have tried disabling all extensions and running Firefox in safe mode and this *seems* to have solved the problem, though I can't be sure and I can't isolate which extension it might be, since the issue happens at random: on the same website it will happen and then not happen.

I'm on Firefox 25.0, though I've had this issue for years with countless versions of Firefox.

The extensions I have installed and enabled:

Adblock plus Bamboo Feed Reader, Dimmer, Download Helper, Drag&Drop Zones, Flagfox, FlashVideo Downloader, Flashblock, Flashgot, Grab and Drag, MouseZoom, Status-4-Evar, Youtube High Definition

Thanks in advance for any help you may give me.

Hi, after a bit of head scratching, I realized that the Firefox option to Warn if page attempts to redirect, seems to be broken.

I am getting no warning message that a redirect was attempted.

I am using the FF 25.0.1 and it is up to date as the latest.

I am using this on XP SP3.

If I turn off Warn if page attempts redirect all is well. But if it is turned on, there is no warning message, this leaves users sitting on a page unaware that they should be somewhere else.

It has the effect of breaking a websites normal operation.

IP camera live feeds don't work, nor do any pages that are supposed to constantly update.

I just noticed this after all the error pages on all sites stopped going back to the index page. Not just one site, I could blame me if that were the case. Then I thought maybe the change to PHP 5.4, and started searching for this error and ended up looking at FF. So, then I tried and turned of warn if redirect is attempted, and the sites work normally.

Without the message, we are blind to what is going on.

What has happened to the warning message?

Am I the only person with a missing warning on a redirect or refresh attempt?

Our companies continue using FF16.01 because higher FF versions hang after close. Same conclusion on 2013-11-25. Tested all the day: a working portable FF16, with extensions enabled, then disabled; plug-ins updated; parent.lock file deleted. Put on a USB stick. Then copy to C: User Account \Applications Data\PortApp (WinXP). Then update the working FF16 to FF25 (via portable apps). Start FF25, close... process hangs. One can only kill the process using Task Manager. Problem is only to FF. Please do something about it after 1 yr! I now use Chrome more.

Firefox crashed (causes don't matter) . Ok, next time I open firefox all the cache is deleted even if all the cache was still there in the cache folder. Every time this happens it's a headache because you have to load the pages again. When it happened again I tried to copy the files from the cache folder elsewhere. Then after firefox had deleted the cache close the browser and replace the new cache files with these old ones. checked firefox and it didn't work, firefox deleted everything again or ignored it and used the last session cache.Tried again, this time with the cache folder and later, the profile folder, same result. Is there a way to back up the cache after a browser crash? or to prevent it's deletion?

I have repeatedly used 'Block Site' to preclude the intruders as their activities frequently void whatever I am attempting to do, but the intruders still get through. Their addresses are:

java-updating-now.com/ca

update-browser.org/firefox/

browseupdate.com/firefox/index.html?aff_sub=s0001311

Also my Firefox is frequently diverted to the following sites without my permission or choice:

pressroomvip.com/hunger-games-premiere-jennifer-lawrence/?utm_source=brt&utm_medium=whtron&utm_campaign=hungerca&utm_nooverride=1

watch32.com/ads/movies-online/captain-phillips.html

My version of Opera is not affected by these intruders and I am considering not continuing to use Firefox.

Thank you for any assistance.

Several months ago, my smallest window size was less than 2 * 2 inches. Then for no reason, the smallest size became about 2*2 inches. This was larger than I wanted but couldn't figure out why the change occurred or how to change it. So I learned to live with it.

Yesterday (12/19/13) when I logged into Firefox, the minimum size became 4*2 inches. This is too wide for me for many of the views that I want. I have not updated Firefox or Java recently. I don't know why this change occurred and would like to know how to redefine the minimum size window on Firefox.

The minimum size window for my IE browser and my Chrome browser is still 2*2. So the problem with the minimum 4*2 window is with Firefox only.

I'm working with a DELL Desktop DV051 with XP operating system 2002 Service Pack 3; 2.79 GHz; 1.99 GB Ram; Avast security
