Never used to happen.

But now, when I open a new tab, there is an extra page remaining BEFORE the website's. VERY annoying since I have to 'open' each webpage each time, even though I'm saving & opening my tabs.

Is this a security problem?

Even on a supposedly secure banking site, all someone needs to do now is click on my username and it gives a list of the users, click one and it fills in WITH password. NOT funny.

In the last few days (I believe since the installation of the latest Firefox), my awesome bar has started delivering autocomplete suggestions in alphabetical order, instead of delivering the most frequently used site first. Since I use the awesome bar for most of my navigation, this is a significant hitch. How do I switch the settings for awesome bar autocomplete back to relevant rather than alphabetical?

Windows 7 Firefox 14, Thunderbird 13 Intel i7, 8g ram Wireless 12 mbps connection on home router No new software loaded by user I do not load unnecessary BS like toolbars, or allow software to be loaded from websites or unknown sources. MS Security Essentials is and always has been updated, and does not report malware, spyware, or virus'. Attempted to reset Firefox with no effect. Set Firefox to 'No Proxy' with no effect. Reset modem/router with no effect. Rebooted Windows 7 with no effect. Local activity (viewing pictures, Word, Quicken) runs normal and instantaneous.

No issues while using Cox connection in Las Vegas, but after transferring concerned laptop to new locale - Denver, CO - everything slowed to a near stand still - ~4 minutes to load a page, no matter the the website. This happens on Firefox, IE, and Thunderbird. The broadband modem and router appear to be working correctly as other Windows-based and Mac-based computers, iPads, iPhones, and Android phones work normally. CPU, RAM, and disk resources are the same as before issue occurred, and appear normal. This issue also occurs when starting Firefox 14 in safe mode.

Can anyone from Mozilla or just general developers explain why FF has decided to change the handling of CSS3 animations? This primarily breaks most of the functionality of the Adobe Edge software. Any info would be great!

The main issues are items not locating correctly on the screen, and some transitions not occurring as they should.

With the new plugin click to play setting set to true, clicking the full screen or larger window box for a YouTube video does nothing. If I set it back to false, those controls work. Something about that setting is messing up YouTube video controls.

With an older version of Firefox, I was able to disable the plugin-container by typing in 'about:config' in the toolbar, typing 'ipc' in the search bar on that page, then changing the value of the executable (or whatever it's called) for the plugin-container to 'false', and, finally, restarting Firefox.

However, even after doing that in Firefox 14, it still runs when I use Flash applications. Does anyone know another way to disable the plugin-container? Because in my honest opinion the plugin just causes more lag since it takes up a lot of memory (at one point it was at 100,000 k, which is ridiculous).

Sorry if someone has posted this question before.

Hello: I have done a reset to try and solve this but it's not going away no matter what I do. I didn't want to tweak around in about:config without knowing what I was doing. It could be a plug in causing it I don't know. When I shut the browser down and then restart it I get tabs opening from a previous session. In this case the session I had right after I reset the browser. Even though I have it set not to allow any but one tab (my home page) to come up at start up of the browser. Before I reset it was pulling up 4 tabs (now only two but one is a download page unfortunately which brings up a download box to have to go around). After I reset it was a different set of tabs (2 this time). I'm not sure how to fix this or what's causing it.

I've noticed that, since yesterday, some of the Personas are not working. When I hover some of them (including a few that I've created myself), the theme will not appear on my Firefox, only the colors will. I'm not really sure what to do about it.

The newly implemented support (in v14.0.1 as far as I can tell)) for native OSX Lion full screen support makes fullscreen pretty useless in a multi monitor setup. With the previous version it was possible to continue using the other monitors for other tasks.

Is it possible to disable the support in some way to actually have useful fullscreen support again, i.e. the way it worked before v14.0.1? Otherwise such an option is needed in my opinion.

Firefox just automatically updated itself today. Now I notice that full screen mode (shift-command-f) works differently. Before, it would hide the menubar and all of the toolbars. Now all it hides is the menubar!

To me, "full screen" means full screen. Sometimes I just want to hide of all that annoying clutter added in by all my extensions. Now I don't see a way to do this.

Since upgrading from Firefox 13.01 to 14.01, Firefox is taking a long time to launch and I am receiving multiple unresonsive script error popups when it tries to launch. I have the same extensions installed that I had in 13.01 and all are compatible with 14.01. Again this issue ONLY started when upgrading to 14.01. I have tried to determine what extension is the problem and turn it off, however when I launch Firefox again, another unresonsive script error popup occurs with a different extension. I'll remove that one and it popups again about a another different one. This is crazy! I have even tried a complete clean install, with no luck. What is the problem?

I am trying to print a HTML document which contains CSS3 columns and page breaks. The document is generated by an application, and can vary in page count. When the document is relatively small (4 pages or less) it prints just fine. However, when the document is 6 pages or more, the final page doesn't print, and I have to go back and manually print it using the Pages option in the Print Range section of the print dialog. It doesn't even work, if I use the Pages option and specify, say, 1 to 6. It still only prints the first five pages. Firefox is the only browser I've found that can display and print CSS3 columns (Chrome displays them, but can't print them). This problem is an inconvenience, but needs to be addressed anyway. I have tried printing 6+ page documents from other applications, and they work just fine, so it's not my printer.
