The old page now has stubs only, there is no full version on it: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/

Separate but valid question: Searching Mozilla Support on this very forum yields no answers as to where to download the full version of the program itself, around which this entire forum has been set up with all the numerous questions in it about the program... yet there is no answer on how and where to actually *GET* the full version of the program... this strongly suggests that the forum administrators went out of their way, to make it difficult to impossible for users to get the FULL VERSION of the program...

There are many valid reasons for needing the full version of the program, don't you think it's pretty incredible that it has always been difficult to download the full version of Firefox? The old page had it buried in between the Acholi and Xhosa languages, even though English (US) is probably needed by millions of users vs. relatively few for Acholi and Xhosa... Millions of users had to go though gymnastics of finding it buried in between all the worlds languages with every consecutive version, and now they completely removed it even from that page...

What is the the reason, and you have to agree there is a reason, for Mozilla preventing us from having the full installation file? And what is the reason, even when the full installation file existed on that page, for this forum to make it almost impossible to find that page when searching the forum, or the entire internet for the official full version download page?

So my Firefox Developer edition just got updated to the version 74.0b2 and I got this brand new address/search bar. One of the things that it used to have before it had been updated was a simple arrow-down button that, when clicked, showed the most visited sites. Now, after the update, this button is gone (pic related). This makes my experience with Firefox *extremely* worse, because now I don't have a quick access to open one of my most visited sites inside the current tab without starting typing their addresses. Is there any option to bring that feature back? Is removal of this button an already-made design choice for Firefox that will stay with us for the next versions?

I originally started using Firefox because of problems with IE which are now fixed. Fire Fox 3xxx was great then 4 came out worked ok till the first update ,then pages will not load completely, wheel just keeps spinning 5 was the same and 6 is the same. one Fix is to turn off Java, this makes the sites load but then other sites require Java, can't keep turning on and off. Why are so many add on not compatible? Please fix the loading problem or I will have to stop using Firefox and I do like it when working right. Windows XP fully up to date all add on s are up to date. There are several site with the problem sometimes they load fine but most of the time they do not Richard

So a lot of pages are loading really slow like minutes, like youtube and hot.ee mail service and a lot more. It started to happen when i updated to 20.0. Looked up some suggestions and found that about:config network.http.keep-alive to false help. And so i did it and it worked, but next time i opened firefox again it was slow loading again, but keep-alive is false still, disabled all not nessecary plugins and extensions and i dont seem to find a solution. Been a firefox user for a long time and dont want to change my browser.

I have been having issues with certain pages loading correctly but have not been able to resolve the issues. I also tried to create a screen shot to no avail apparently. It's is not with every website only some here and there. Sometimes if I navigate aware and come back to that page it can resolve the issues but more times than not it does not fix the problem. I can also use another web browser such as google chrome or firefox and not run into the same issue. The exact same page will load correctly and as expected. I appreciate your assistance in this matter and I have done some of the trouble shooting steps noted in the frequently asked questions and what you all have suggested to resolve the issue such as clearing the cache, etc but it does not seem to resolve the problem long term

Recently updated to Firefox 25, Windows 7 and noticed that pages load slowly if at all. I then realized that pages loaded if I had my cursor in motion. Likewise, I noticed videos loaded fine but played audio straight through. The video only "moved" when the cursor is in motion. Otherwise it freezes. Don't know if it's a hardward problem, but I don't get this on IE. Have tried disabling all add-ons, no change. Have reset FF, no change. Please advise.

I downloaded an ebook but turned out it was not what I expected so I deleted it. But after that, I noticed that my search engine and homepage changed. I tried to delete everything I found related to the download I did in the control panel, managed to changed my search engine and homepage back. But whenever I start up Firefox, Awesomeph is homepage though when I click on the homepage icon, Google (which IS my homepage) would start.

I installed a malware software as what's advised on sites dedicated to that problem. Scanned and deleted the 19 threats found, restarted my system but still, Awesomeph is there. What to do?

How do I prevent firefox from using HTML5 player in youtube and use flash player instead? I am not sure what advantage HTML5 has over Flash. I noticed that Flash plays smoother than HTML5 and there is also a difference in quality of the video at low resolution. HTML5 does not seem to have smooth streaming compared to Flash. I may be wrong and I am ready to learn the advantage of HTML5 over Flash. But until then I wish to revert FF to its previous behavior of playing in flash.

If there is no way of bypassing this player (html5), how do I set it to ask before I allow it to play the video? I dislike videos playing automatically as soon as I open the link or any websites (reason why I set Flash player to 'ask to activate').

Thank you for your generous help. :)

Firefox was working great until recent updates of version 39.

I have now lost my ability to bookmark a page. When I click the star icon as I always had, the star turns bright blue and gives the appearance that the bookmark is being transferred--or "thrown into" -- the bookmark icon. But the page never appears anywhere in my bookmarks.

Before when I clicked the star, I always got a box that would let me edit the name I wanted for the bookmark name, and the different bookmark menu locations that I could choose from as to where I wanted the bookmark to go. Now I don't get any box.

I know this has to be a result of the recent update changes and not something in my computer because I never had that simulation of "throwing" the bookmark before. Or the bright blue star.

Since windows 10 updated on 5/6/17 to include the creator tools, Firefox has been opening a new tab containing advertisements for addons. Nothing else, just addons. It happens roughly 75% of the time that I interact with anything on a web page. I've tried using firefox safe mode and it is still continuing. My windows defender did not detect any viruses on its quick scan, though I am in progress of running a full scan. If this comes up negative, what else can I do? This is getting really irritating and concerning. Its like the popup blocker is no longer catching all of them. and there are way more than there should be. It doesn't matter where I go, this happens. It actually happened when I clicked in this text box.

(This is a repost of my question. I reposted as all the formatting was lost and now it's a mangled mess that is hard to read.)

I opened "Help > About Firefox" to check which version I was running.

It said 16.0.2 and "You are currently on the release update channel."

Then while I was watching it upgraded to 17.0.

1. Now "Tools > Add-ons" no longer works.

2. I thought 17.0 was a beta. If so why did it download it when I'm on the release channel?

3. when I go to http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/fx/ and click the big green "Firefox Free Download" button it downloads this 16.0.2 version:

http://www.mozilla.org/products/download.html?product=firefox-16.0.2&os=win&lang=en-US

which again implies that I should be on 16.0.2, not 17.0

Thanks!

Using Mac OS X 7.5, I updated Firefox when prompted, now Soundcloud widgets say 'data connection failure', direct links to Soundcloud pages don't load but send me to a generic 'something went wrong' page with low-res graphics. Everything else seems to work, including video streams, bandcamp etc.

I have looked at advice here for similar issues - safe restart, clearing cookies and cache don't help. I don't have adblocker or firewall, almost no add-ons, the problem occurred both before and after updating Flash.

Chrome works fine with Soundcloud, so it looks like it is a Firefox issue. Any advice?

Hi there,

Certain icons are displaying as hex codes on my Mac. I've made sure that my advanced content settings allow pages to choose their own fonts. I've likewise made sure that gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled in about:config is marked true.

I've restarted Firefox in Safe Mode and the problem persists.

I've read some information about inspecting the element, but I don't know what to look for. In opening the Web Console, I get this message in the inspector sheet: "Signal: error: {"type":"script","message":"Problem loading http://platform.twitter.com/oct.js","tagId":1491995}" tag.js:2:286 Signal: error: {"type":"wait","message":"ReferenceError: twttr is not defined","tagId":1491995} tag.js:2:286

I also see a message saying "Style sheet could not be loaded."

Any suggestions for me, team?

Thanks so much!
