I am a privacy aware user which uses Firefox since many years. I didn't have to set up an account until now. Then i came across this warning site, stating i am forced to enable cookies and local storage in order to register.

I don't think this settings are vital for a registration process so why does Firefox enforces them?

sincerely, a concerned user.

For some reason Google Earth has stopped working in Firefox, and I get a note that I have to download the plug in. (It works fine in Chrome and Safari.)

I followed the 'solution' in the forum without any success.

When I search for "Google Earth Browser plugin" in Finder, I find SEVEN matching that search under "Kind" in Macintosh HD/Library/Internet Plugins . . .but that "Kind" is associated with plugins that are "Named" something else - e.g., Adobe, DivX, Flash, Flip4Mac, etc. (Weird).

I also rest this as well gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled

So far no luck I am still getting text instead of the icons.

Hi. Blank space appears above address bar in full screen mode when I bookmark specific web page for the first time after FF start. Only way to hide this space is View->Toolbars->Customize->Done. But it appears each time after FF restarts. Disabling all addons does not help. This problem disappears only in FF safe mode.

Thanks, Roman

For a few of the enterprise products I use, the mixed content blocker disables my ability to use these tools. While I understand I can toggle to allow mixed-content -- I would like to be able to whitelist the URLs that I use regularly that I don't want content blocking enabled. Is this possible?

Hi! I use your awesome browser as my #1 browser. Since the most recent update, however, I can not see content on Facebook that was available (and works on all other browsers).

Here is a link where you can see it working on all other broswers but not FF:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Gables-Inn/91848818163?id=91848818163&sk=app_243138959111822

It in an iFrame FYI.

I have developed over 3000 FB pages and now they only work in the other browsers. I have gotten most of my clients to instal FF so this is an even bigger issue. I am out of ideas. Please let me know if its me or what to do to make it work.

Thank you so much!!!!

Just upgraded from version 17 to 20 to find, somehow, Firefox has taken a step backward in how the download window is displayed.

This is the old one: http://limi.net/media/copy_of_Downloadspopulated.png

Look at all that useful information, File name, file size, URL of site, and time/date completed.

Who thought it would be a good idea to take all that info away when "upgrading" to Firefox 20?

Why can't people just do their job right :-s

How do I make it so that when I search with my address bar it ALWAYS uses Google, regardless of what search engine is selected in the search bar? It used to be like this, but a recent Firefox update altered it. Now, when I search with my address bar it uses the search engine selected in the search bar...if I wanted to do that, I would just use the search bar! Any suggestions?

Here is a link to a picture that shows what I am referencing: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/5220716/PluginIcon.jpg

If you click on it it asks if you want to allow Flash to run on the current website. However even if you choose "allow and remember" the icon is persistent. This does not happen on every website, but Facebook is a good example.

I am running Firefox for Mac version 24.0 on an iMac with OS X 10.8.5

All of my plugins are up to date.

I just really don't want to have to see that icon constantly in the address bar, but maybe I have no choice?

I've been having a lot of issues with Firefox 25 hard-hanging on OS-X 10.8.5. Firefox 24 worked perfectly with various sites I've had problems with recently. Firefox 25 on Windows works fine with the same sites, so does Google Chrome 30, IE9, IE10, and IE11. The hang is very specific to FF25/OSX. Is this being looked at or reported by anyone else? My co-workers are also hitting this. It seems like FF25/OSX has some sort of deadlock condition when there is heavy dom maniplation occurring via JavaScript along with the usage of Web Fonts (font-face/font family). I have to force-quit it and restart. Safe mode makes no difference. Nor does clearing site information.

If there is any debug I can capture (such as triggering a stack dump) I am more than willing to generate it.

I am running MAX OSX 10.8.4. Firefox updated yesterday to 23.0 and since then, Quickbooks Online will not open. It will accept my login credentials and at the next screen, flashes the usual "Quickbooks is loading your information" message; however, the screen never populates. My admin can open the account in IE and I can open it with Safari. This started after the Firefox update.

When new Yahoo Mail started, the icons don't load and in settings this is a problem because I don't know what I'm doing if I don't see the icon. I have this problem on my MacBook Air which uses Firefox ESR 17.0.9 and my iMac which uses Firefox 24. In safari the icons load just fine. I also notice that on some websites and Facebook there is a minor problem with icons for function not showing up either. Instead of the icon showing up a tiny verticle oblong box with tiny numbers and letters are in there place.
