My mouse pad recently "slipped" and sent my cursor somewhere on my toolbar without my wanting it to go there. Before I even saw what happened, I somehow clicked on something on my toolbar that made my little home page icon disappear -- that little house. Firebox still opens to the homepage that I want it to, but the convenience of getting back to this homepage is gone without my little house icon. Help: where did it go, and how do I get it back?

Since the latest update/install of Firefox, it no longer allows navigation via typing in the address bar. Even if I type the whole address and hit enter or click the "go to" arrow, nothing happens. I have to navigate to a website by googling it and following their click-through links.

I'm no n00b - this is clearly a fault with the latest version, or some interaction/default setting that's getting in the way. I'd welcome any ideas.

Firefox help articles on the latest version state: "Web search in the address bar - When you type in the location bar and press Return, Firefox takes you to search results using the search provider selected in the search bar."

Uh, no Firefox. Your address bar takes me precisely nowhere!

Cheers.

Firefox opens at my home page as desired, but it is on a window in the upper right corner, about 4"wide and 3" tall. It readily drags out into a full-sized display, but I want it to open that way, as it did before I updated to yesterday's version of Firefox. i find no options immediately obvious to set this opening size as a default. How do I do this? Also, I now have a problem with Flash crashing that I did not have before the update. How do I fix that?

Upon start up, Firefox unnecessarily asks for my master password every time. My home page (Google Finance) does not require a password. This occurs in safe mode as well. This is annoying and time wasting. I have to X-out the master password request window about 10 seconds after I start Firefox. Why does it do this? ... Firefox did not used to do this.

After deleting prefs.js file Firefox does not create a new one.

Firefox does not save any of my settings so i tried all the method described in the following articles:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-fix-preferences-wont-save https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-fix-preferences-wont-save#w_unable-to-save-any-preferences-or-settings

finally I uninstalled FF completely, deleted the FF installation directory and moved my old profile. Reinstalling FF did not help in anyway. After reinstalling, the preferences were still not saved so I deleted the profs.js file. When I start Firefox it does not create a new profs.js file adn of course my setting are still not saved

What can i do? change? I'd rather fix this than install chrome instead...

Since updating to 34.0.5 I have not been able to use my drop down menus on parts of websites. The first drop down appears fine, but the flyout child menu drop downs are only visible for the first one and one half of the menu items, the rest are cropped out of visibility. This is also occurring in Firefox Dev version.

I did start Firefox in safemode and that fixed the issue, but then restarting in regular mode and disabling all add-ons did not fix the problem. Very strange.

Ideas? I'm a developer and I need those drop downs as all my admin menus are drop downs, so I currently can't use firefox at all.

I'm using the Mac version, and Mac osx 10.10.1

HI, After I updated to 34.0 on OSX 10.9.5 (thorough automatic update), I noticed that all the contents of the tile disappeared. Before the update, I saw many tiles when I opened a new tab. Even after some browsing, no contents appears (I can see only an array of blank tiles). I switched between enhanced, classic, blank. No effect.

Furthermore, built-in PDF viewer is not working. All the time I click the pdf link, I see the window to download the pdf file with the title "Enter name of file to save to...". Before the update, PDF viewer worked fine, no problem. After I noticed the problem, I checked Preferences -> applications, and confirmed that the action to the content type "Portable Document Format (PDF)" is set to "Preview in Firefox".

Moreover, built-in password manager also stopped working. It doesn't remember new password. It doesn't provide any already-remembered passwords on the site where it has automatically provided the account and password before the update. I checked Preferences -> Security ->Saved Passwords. There are many passwords remembered (remembered before the update).

I re-install the firefox manually. It doesn't help.

Can Anybody Help Me? Is there any information I can provide to sort out my problem?

I fixed the freezing but still can't log into Yahoo. I added Yahoo to exception lists but it did not help.

A couple of months ago this problem began: On Facebook, when I start a video, it plays for 2-4 seconds and then freezes. Nothing i do can restart it. If I go to You Tube I get the same problem, though it runs a little longer, about 11 seconds. On rare occasions a video will play. I can find no reason for that.

I have disabled hardware acceleration and I have disabled all my plug-ins and extensions (including AdBlock Plus) and restarted Firefox but the problem remains.

I'm running Windows 8.1 with Firefox 34.0.5.

Any help would be appreciated.

I've got a Macbook that I dualboot into Windows with, both of these sync fine. Just installed FF on a friend's iMac and signed into sync just fine, all the boxes were checked (tabs, bookmarks, settings, etc).

I click sync and one of two things happen: the sync icon will turn blue and rotate *very briefly* or it won't do anything at all.

I never get any sort of error, and I never get any sort of indicator as to its progress (or lack thereof), which is incredibly unhelpful.

What am I doing wrong, and what do I need to do to fix it? 34.0.5 here, don't remember off the top of my head what my laptop is on.
