Hi,

I have not noticed this in previous versions of Firefox, but under OSX 10.7.5 version 25.0.1 forces the use of the default input source (e.g. my laptop's keyboard, instead of the attached external keyboard).

All other input devices are greyed out in the Language & Input toolbar drop down when the Firefox application is in focus. This does not happen with any other application on my desktop.

I believe this is the issue relates to this thread also:

On Roku.com there is a channel store to install channels. When I tell it to install one it tells me what I said above. Was working okay at one time, but not now. If I use Internet Explorer it works fine. I prefer to use Firefox as I have been a Firefox user for years.

Hi

  I am using Windows XP on a HP dx2000 MT.  When I open  the Mozilla browser, the start page for qOne8.com comes up. When I select File/new window, I can get to the  Foxpro  Google search page and my homepage. I have tried resetting Foxpro with no success. I have tried setting program access in the Windows Add/Remove Programs window with no success. I haven't found any window where qOne8  even appears; so I'm assuming it is a hidden program or I'm not looking in the right place. Any suggestions would be helpful.  Thanks.  Kirk

I inadvertently allowed the Best Lyrics add on to be installed for Firefox. It has annoying adds and sometimes links to malicious software. It can be disabled or removed from a session and become non functional after a Firefox restart but each time the computer is booted up it appears again. I assume there must be a file hidden somewhere that re-installs the add on each time the computer is started up. Does any one know how to remove this permanently?

I downloaded and installed several animated lightening themes from your site and these use to work in an earlier version of Firefox. Now the only way they animate is by disabling and then re-enabling them but when I close Firefox, I have to do the same again so the animation works. Everything is up to date and I have followed all the steps disabling and running safe mode etc. but it makes no difference ... Same issue. I have removed Firefox, restored Firefox, updated Firefox, down dated Firefox, but the system auto updates to the latest automatically and the themes are back once again not working.

When I download files (regardless of type: pdf, jpg, exe, etc.) the download shows progress, the arrow turns green and indicates that the file completed, but there is no file. If I pick desktop as the location, it will show up there briefly, and then instantly disappear upon completion. Changing my download location (for example, download folder) has no effect. "Open containing folder" produces no action. Trying to open the file produces no action. Searching for the file by name gives no result, the file doesn't exist. (Kaspersky Internet Security 2014. OS = WinXP.)

Thanks.

Perhaps this is two issues. Both pooped up with a recent update. I have no yahoo extensions nor add-ons installed.

a) I type a URL into the navigation bar (NOT the search box) and all these 'helpful' suggestions pop up. Make them stop.

b) I type a bad address in the navigation bar (NOT the search box) and I get a Yahoo page of 'helpful' links. Make them stop.

Firefix 25.0.1 forces SSL even when http:// is specified in the location bar

I own elbertkarsten.com and run non-SSL http servers on ports 80 and 8080. I also run a SSL http server on port 443.

If I exactly type "http://elbertkarsten.com/" Firefox changes the protocol to https and issues an SSL request to my webserver over port 443.

If I specify a port (80 or 8080), Firefox will change the protocol to https and issue an SSL request over that port.

My server logs no redirects. This is entirely Firefox's behavior. I am able to use the same URL with wget and there is no protocol changing problems.

If I specify a protocol I would expect it to be used.

The problem is on my desktop and my laptop. I got a bit click happy on my desktop computer and hit the Web Developer button. I was trying to delete a really annoying flash ad on the side of the screen. I think I got into page source and deleted the node. I'm truly not sure what happened, but pictures stopped loading for ebay and everything is a worded list down the side of the page. I have deleted cache and cookies. I have reset mozilla. I have uninstalled and reinstalled mozilla. Laptop was not immediately affected, but now having the same problem.

Hi, I want to increase the number of recently closed windows which Firefox remembers. It currently remembers three recently closed windows, but frequently when I click on hyperlinks (not pop-ups) they automatically open in new windows, which functionally deletes the record of windows I had open and wanted to refer to again... only now they're gone, seemingly forever. Is there some setting to change this? I don't need or want Firefox to remember my entire browsing history, I just want to be able to revisit 6 or 7 recently closed windows because 3 is not enough. Thanks.
