Since upgrading to Firefox 22 and 24, the font size has been extremely huge. The only way to make it smaller is ctrl - , but when I go to other sites the fonts are normal size.

I want to be able to get the default size font on the Firefox 24. I've been using Chrome because this has been so darned annoying, it's even causing Bing to screw up.

Can someone help me get this fixed?

16 September 2013 Using Windows 7 Home Edition and Firefox 24.0

I always want Firefox to offer a location when I download stuff. At the moment it fills the Save As file location with a location I never use and it is the same one every time, and I don't know how to stop this from happening. How can I teach Firefox to fill the Save As location with another file location, for example Desktop?

NB This is absolutely not about setting the default under

Tools/Options/General/Downloads/Save Files To...

although everyone automatically assumes it is.

Background: After using Firefox for a few months on my Windows 7 machine, I then imported old Firefox settings from a VISTA machine.

Print Preview - Zoom.

When I zoom it changes the size of the page on displayed on the screen and it also changes the font-size of the text being displayed.

Is this a glitch or am I doing something wrong.

Incidentally I need both the features... i.e. I want to be able change the size of the page as it is being displayed and I also want to be able to change the size of the content on the page - but I would like separate selection boxed / controls for each.

When I started my Firefox browser today, I noticed there are close buttons to the right of each of my PINNED tabs. I don't like them so how can I remove them please?

Sometimes I have accidentally clicked the close button by mistake when switching between my pinned tabs and I prefer how they used to be.

Thanks.

I just upgraded from 17.0.9esr to 24.0esr. At first I noticed that download statusbar didn't show any downloads when they were downloading, so I decided to remove it. That didn't change anything as I cannot see them in Tools->Downloads tab. I tried messing with the browser.download.useJSTransfer and browser.download.useToolkitUI, as I have seen in my search, but they do not help. I also tried changing the private browsing mode options, and although I can see that downloads fail, I cannot see when they are downloading. I'm not sure what is going on.

I'm running Firefox 24.0 on Windows 7. Suddenly when I start Firefox I wind up on the last page viewed, tabs and all. I went to Options, set it to blank. Went to about:config and made the change there. No luck.

I'm not certain, but I think this started with this week's Microsoft download.

i use sanitisminau and selectivecookiedelete to get rid of junk with 2 clicks(i remember, when i googled back then to see if i could actually merge these buttons together..at that time i was slightly disappointed, that i didnt find what i was looking for)

and now, while im happy with the new compact download arrow, in the long run its so annoying with its green color and the color doesnt go back to default after clearing download history via sanitisminau button, which means i need 2 additional clicks - 1 on the green arrow and 1 random click to close the download menu again

so in summary, here i have this browser, that is advertised as "open source" and yet people give me an impression, that some things are not changeable(another example of this was, when i asked people, how i could get rid of 1 newer part of firefox' history http://img7.uploadhouse.com/fileuploads/18080/18080177c08a6e2ddf65a917b76fb2746b2f38cc.jpg )

and now i have a 3rd person telling somebody the same thing here http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2682857 "you can't disable only green arrow."

on the english wikipedia page it says "Mozilla Firefox is a free and open source" also from wikipedia regarding "Free and open-source software": "That is, anyone is freely licensed to use, copy, study, and change the software in any way, and the source code is openly shared so that people are encouraged to voluntarily improve the design of the software."

well if this thing is open source and it is perfectly legal to modify it to any extent supported by runtime coding language hardware w.e, then WHY CANT WE CHANGE THE COLOR OF A FREAKIN ARROW?!?!?!

i mean this browser gets updates every 1-2 months or w.e, so there should be enough people out there able to deal with a UI issue that molests some users every day..or not??

why are things not as easy in this case as i expect them to be??

Anyone with Norton software

Please also see these posts by CheckMate lower down in this thread:


I updated to Firefox 24.0 today (on a Windows 7 64-bit system) and since then I have had program crashes about every 2 to 15 minutes apart. Disabling hardware acceleration did not work. Firefox did not crash when I tried it in safe mode, but since I'm not sure what's triggering the crashes, I am still not sure if this is an extension problem. I have two crash reports: bp-40c597f4-aec4-47a0-92dd-14f382130918 and bp-abbbabef-0535-405b-8b30-0a5642130918. Can someone look at these and post a reply?

We are facing problem with our Add-ons support for FireFox 24.Firefox is crashing. In earlier approach we was using 'JS_GetGlobalObject' to get global object from docShell. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Projects/SpiderMonkey/JSAPI_reference/JS_GetGlobalObject?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=SpiderMonkey%2FJSAPI_Reference%2FJS_GetGlobalObject

As per given above link- I should use use JS_GetGlobalForObject or JS_GetGlobalForScopeChain instead of JS_GetGlobalObject. I tried both of them and additionally I tried GetNativeGlobal(), GetGlobalJSObject() . but none of them work out. Firefox is crashing in all the cases .

Could anybody help me for this issue? what are required changes need to fix this problem. I have paste code for yours reference.

After Firefox auto updated to version 24.0, it has been consistently crashing. I tried unchecking "Use hardware acceleration when available" and making javascript.options.baselinejit.content, javascript.options.baselinejit.chrome, and javascript.options.ion.content false but that did not solve my problem. I don't want to have to switch to a different browser but I can't get anything done with how often Firefox is crashing.
