I have an Add-on that just showed uninvited and it has no remove button. It is called FBPhotoZoom, but I am not sure if it is the actual add-on. When I searched this, there was a FB Photo Zoom, that I installed and uninstalled with no problems, but this one remained.

The Add-on says FBPhotoZoom 1.3 By Install Daddy FB Photo Zoom, Small change - BIG difference

There is only an Enable/Disable button

Have tried the usual trouble shooting. When changing the page style to 'No Style' - the text displays.

Manually disabling all addons and plugins doesn't fix the issue however when using Firefox in safemode, the text appears fine.

Changing the character encoding does not alleviate the issue. Running windows 7 x64 with all the latest updates and the latest firefox.

Chrome displays twitter and tumblr fine.

Firefox 3.x works, however after upgrading to 10.0.2 it will crash whenever starting up.

Platform: Windows 2003 Terminal Server with Citrix.

We have excluded the firefox.exe from the ctxhook and it doesn't help (we know this fixes crashing on startup on Xendesktop deployments).

I'm trying to use a ssl proxy with accounts.google.com.

Usually, firefox warns me about invalid certs, however it let me add an exception if I wanted to connect to it anyway.

But, if i want to connect to accounts.google.com, it blocks me, and it doesn't let me add that exception.

Why it happens only with this subdomain?

We recently received the FireFox ESR 24 that now prevents us from being able to copy/paste within a web-based application using Ctrl+C / Ctrl+V or right-click copy/paste menus. Is there a fix for this? We have tried installing RightToClick, but this does not work either.

While it may seem like a good idea to auto detect the OS/application/version (e.g., Mac/Firefox/9) and generate support content specific to the combination, there should be a option (link) on the page to look at other or all combinations.

I find it frustrating to have to use User Agent Switcher to get information for a different OS/application/version when helping folks on Mozillazine where I'm a moderator. Most of those needing help are on Win and I'm on a Mac so I initially get info for the Mac OS.

Pretty much what the question says. I updated to the latest Firefox, and now this really irritating thing happens.... It happens lots of places too. Some specific things:

  • Clicking on the address bar at all does not bring up the little flashing cursor thing, and generally gives me no indication that I've actually clicked on the URL. Same with that little google search thing in the upper right.
  • Most frustratingly, when I press enter after putting in a URL, it won't even go to the site.
  • After getting annoyed at both of those things, I try to type in something on a website, and though the URL stays the same, it starts dropping down a lot of suggestions from my history.
  • Lastly, when I'm doing my crosswords on Washington Post and I switch to a different tab to type something on there, it doesn't switch my typing thing over - it stays on the crossword, typing things into that rather than into the typing field I clicked on to start typing in.

So, yeah, this is highly annoying, and I'd love for any help for these issues...

I did look at the FAQs, and they said something about the AVG SafeSearch thing causing one of my problems, but I don't have that extension, so it's definitely not that!

I see this issue is widespread, but some of the "easy" fixes are for computer geeks only. I would like to know if anyone could tell me how to get rid of the welcome page without delving into the guts of my computer? I don't write software, and I'm not going to jump through hoops to try to get rid of this nuisance.

There has to be more people like me who look at some of these replies and think, "What?"...especially when we don't see what you're apparently seeing when you "walk us through" steps to correct this issue.

I feel Firefox should address this personally, since it's their update that screwed us all up. Supposedly, updates are supposed to get us "ready to enjoy the very latest in speed, flexibility and security"...yeah, okay. How about fixing this bug, Firefox??? Instead of making your users solve the issues for you. This is ridiculous.

If no one can help me solve this without me having to get a degree in computer science, can someone tell me how to get rid of the update altogether? I'll take my chances by NOT being "ready to enjoy the latest in speed, flexibility and security"...

I'm sorry for the frustration, but this is just unacceptable. We shouldn't have to go through this every time we update. Thanks for any help!

Sometime along the movement to FF 10, my tabs do not act as before. I load dozens of tabs at a time. 1- As I go from tab to tab, the next tab just beyond the right tab would show that I could just 'hit' on it and it would open. The tab after would also show a bit. Now I have to hit the right arrow, then 'hit' the tab to open. It increases my workload tremendously. 2- Along with '1' above if I 'hit' the left or right arrow, the tabs shoot across more than the width of the tab bar. I sometimes have to go back and fourth a few times to get where I was. It never was this "sensitive" or acted in this way.

When trying to access Live Chat, a message appears "There was an error checking the queue." I have seen this for quite some time so I know it is not an intermittent issue. A link appears underneath this message "You can try starting a chat session." When I click this I am brought to a blank page with the title "Leave A Message." What is going on? Even at the bottom of the Contact Us page there is mention of live chat under Technical support.
