I've been testing Windows Technical Preview. Just yesterday Nightly stopped working properly. I R/R'ed. No joy. Any suggestions?

I've had no trouble with any previous builds. This is Build 10041. I'll post this in the Feedback App too.

I'm posting this from IE 11 since Nightly is malfunctioning. It seems to be not accepting keyboard or mouse input.

I tried to send feedback within Nightly but have no way to verify whether it was accepted.

Have Windows 10 Technical Preview build 10041, Firefox Nightly x64 39.0a1 most current. Firefox will launch, but when browser appears no input to screen possible. Can't access settings, can't place cursor in URL box. Tried compatibility modes with no success. I may not have used this browser on Thursday, March 26, but it was working without issue on Wednesday, March 25. My speculation would be that one of the last two nightly updates broke this. This question posted from Chrome as Firefox not operating.

so the search bar changed recently and it's crap.. basically, it pops up way more information than needed as i'm typing in my search, and if my mouse happened to move over a random button when i hit "enter" it searches a different engine or goes to "change search settings".. these buttons do not need to be engaged with the enter button, it's really annoying.. in the screenshot picture i took it removed my cursor but you'll notice that "change search settings" is highlighted, if i were to press enter it wouldn't search, it would open settings

An older bug is when I try to create a new folder; the currently selected folder becomes "edit mode"(highlighted) instead of creating a "New folder" in edit mode. Clip 1.

The newer bug is when I select a folder in which to place the desired shortcut; after [Done] the shortcut stays in [Unsorted Bookmarks] Clips 2-5 in order.

This has been happening for about 3 days now and persists through nightly updates. Currently 40.0a1 (2015-04-26)

Hey Team,

I am having issues setting the defaults of Firefox for all users within our Managed Desktop environment. I have read we can use a mozilla.cfg and a local-settings.js. THough it doesnt seem to be working. I also read about the grepref all.js file. But i cannot seem to see that on our install anywhere.

Can you please assist in helping us setup default preferences for all users who connect across our terminal servers. The links i have used as references are below: http://ilias.ca/blog/2005/03/locking-mozilla-firefox-settings/ http://kb.mozillazine.org/Locking_preferences

Any help would be great.

Problems on Firefox for Windows 10

Computer details: Windows 10 Technical Previewer Build 10074 GPU drivers: latest AMD official 14.12 drivers (NOT WINDOWS BETA DRIVERS) Firefox version: 38.0.1 Build ID: 20150513174244

The problem is the one that can be seen in the screenshot attached. I pointed every place in the Bookmarks toolbar and above where the icons randomly disappear. This is also true for most icons/images in the page. It mostly happens when CTRL+TAB/ALT+TAB into Facebook, but it has also happened in some other websites.

This was happening in same Windows build with previous (I think 38.0.0) Firefox version. Windows was reinstalled and it kept happening. Tried disabling all add-ins and tried launching Firefox on secure mode, nothing has helped at all. Attached troubleshooting information in case this helps.

At this moment, Firefox is UNUSABLE due to constant crashes and visualization glitches, all part of the same issue.

Basically I upgraded my windows 10 build to 10122 yesterday. When I launched Firefox, the GUI is totally screwed up and makes Firefox unusable on my machine. This appears to be machine specific as on another machine running the same windows 10 build there are no issues.

Please see screenshot. Can anyone help me fix this? What is the cause?

I really want to help Mozilla and I'm concerned if my IP address is shared to the wide public. I'm having a bit of trouble in understanding the privacy policy since English is not my native language.

I'm referring to this exact phrase from Telemetry : " Your IP address is also collected as a part of a standard web log. Usage statistics are transmitted using SSL and help us improve future versions of Firefox. Once sent to Mozilla, usage statistics are aggregated and made available to a broad range of developers, including both Mozilla employees and public contributors. "

Who are the "public contributors" ? Should I be concerned? Please advise.
