Switched on my system this morning and found that everything has become bigger in FF. The bookmark toolbar, the font size of websites..everything has increased in size. For example when I open up dailymail website, the site used to fit on screen in such a way that I could see the main headline completely, however now half of the screen is filled up with just the header (logo etc). I have around 20 websites that I had saved on the bookmark toolbar (with shortened names) and there was space for at least one more...but now I find that the toolbar length is unable to accommodate a couple of websites...is there anyway I can fix this?

I have updated Java on my Windows 8 machine. I have not gone to 8.1 yet. On the older version of Firefox -(I used it an hour ago) this message did not appear.

My Mac's Firefox is notifying me that it wants to be updated to v23. But the keyword url string breaks in FF23 on Windows and as I use both mac and Pc, I need it to work on both every time.

Keyword.url and Google's Browse By Name is how I use the internet, it's not a feature, it's a requirement.

What can be done to resolve this?

Thanks!

I've tried various methods of sorting tags. None of them really represents the conventional output one would consider "sorting". I've had to, for example, prefix categories of tags in order to get some semblance of order. Lately not even this works very well after going through various updates to Firefox.

Further, there doesn't seem to be anything on the Mozilla website for Firefox that addresses this question. Perhaps my library of Bookmarks is more extensive than most, and those who program the interface have never seen a need to provide this capability to sort tags. In my case, since I've used tags to introduce order and fast access to information, tags have become indispensable to that end.

Maybe the reason this capability is missing is because it is not technically feasible. I would like to know whether or not it is so I don't continue to search for a solution.

This is a strange problem that I have only encountered on a few sites; it is consistently happening on a specific game website (quakelive.com).

Anyway, I have my password for my account saved. When I log in, though, the Firefox does not auto-fill the login or password fields. If I enter the login, it still does not auto-fill the password field. I know that Firefox knows the password, because if I enter the wrong one (as I frequently do), I get a pop-up with something like "Would you like to update the saved password on...?" Well, no, Mr. Firefox, I wouldn't like to update it, but I *would* like you to fill it in if you know it (which you do).

I've checked and double-checked all of the basics in the other articles; I am fairly confident that all of my password and security settings are correct. I rarely have problems on other sites, though I do recall it happening elsewhere before (quakelive seems to be the primary culprit here, and it may be a specific issue with that site). I can always go into the password manager and find it, but that sort of defeats the purpose.

Any ideas?

After several minutes on a webpage that uses Shockwave, the page will crash and the browser will freeze. Then I get an error message saying a plugin has stopped working and asks if I want to continue or stop the plugin. I have been unable to get the page to startworking again. It requires me to quit Firefox and restart the browser.

When trying to play any sample from any album sold in Bandcamp.com the player starts playing, but there is no sound. Meanwhile other browsers plays it fine.

I use latest FF, I tried disabling various addons and plugins but it didn't help (they are not sound related anyway).

I run on Win8x64.

Update: The sound plays fine everywhere else on Firefox. YouTube etc. It plays everywhere except Bandcamp.

And the Bandcamp player is not Flash, it has nothing Flash related. It is HTML5 player.

Hi Friends, The update which I received upon opening Ff today is unacceptable. My screen is somehow zoomed, even though my zoom control reports that it's at 100%. My Favorites add-on does not show anything in it.

So I either would like to fix those 2 vital issues, or uninstall the update which was automatically installed.

Thank you very much.

Hello,

Whenever i'm trying to visit Hotmail/Outlook, Firefox is hangs and not responding for about 15-30 sec. It is not just Hotmail/Outlook, any HTML5 based websites (like Canv.as, 9GAG etc.) causing same problems too. It is not relative to my system, because my laptop is just couple months old and has Intel i5 processor and 8 GB RAM.

Here are the steps that i already tried and not helped:

1. Delete and create profile 2. Clean restart without add-ons 3. Clear browser history, caches, temp folders etc. 4. Uninstall/Clean Firefox install

Please check out the video below for see in action.

What am i supposed to do? I'm using Firefox since 2005 and i don't wanna use other sneaky browsers.

Any help will be appreciated.
