Clicking on a pdf attachment in AT&T/Yahoo Mail results in "a file was downloaded". Used to open the file in Firefox 25.0 and prior. Switching to IE I can click on the attachment and it opens. Seems it could be something in 25.0.1. I cleared my history (cache, cookies) but this did not fix the problem. I disabled the pdf viewed and that didn't help either.

I received a notification to update an Adobe product that is commonly used by internet users daily. After installing, the actual product download failed but now when I open Firefox and Internet Explorer it directs and goes to NationZoom. I go into options and type in yahoo to open program or a new tab and it goes to NationZoom. How do I get rid of it? I found that NationZoom's parent company is Violeter Technology Limited when I did a Google search. NationZoom has it taken over my browsers and the URL I get every time I open up a browser is http://www.nationzoom.com/?type=sc&ts=1386393134&from=tugs&uid= FUJITSUXMHZ2320BHXG1_K61ET8C2A5LUT8C2A5LUX

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox and I still get the same problem.

Please help, thanks Raymond

I use a parts look up program called Microcat , the service is used with either a local database or a server database. I use the local database option , when the application starts it uses my default browser which is firefox. That part of the application works fine, but when I go to print within the application all I get is either blank tab, or a pop up with a print button that doesn't print. All these features work fine in IE 10 or 11 I have read through and followed several troubleshooting tips from the Mozilla website. I can send screen shots if required . Another thing if I try to print within the browser , all I get is a blank page.

Is there any solution other then switching to Chrome??

I just updated to 25.0 and I noticed the History drop down menu has been simplified and Back, Forward and Home are now gone. Can these be restored?

I am running on a Mac (Lion) with FF 25.0. I typically hide the toolbar because I like to max out my screen space without having to go into full screen mode. So I typically use a custom keyboard command to navigate forward and back during my browser session, but occasionally the keyboard command fails and the page is unresponsive. In the past all I had to do was go up to the History drop down menu and choose "Back" or "Forward". I would also use the "Home" selection to get back to my homepage. But ever since I updated to 25.0 those selection are now gone from the History menu.

Is there any way to restore them? And are they gone for all users (was this a global change) or are one of my add-ons simply not playing nice and causing this problem? TIA!

FF 25 has issues on OS-X 10.8.5. It hangs sites with heavy dom manipulation + web font faces The same page is fine on FF25/Win. Is this being looked at?

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.

Firefox disabled "Better Surf", I think because of security issues. I restarted Firefox as suggested to complete the procedure. At first the add-on "Better Surf" had the options "disable" and "remove". Then I made the mistake of clicking on "more information" in the "Better Surf" area. It seems this caused the options to disappear.

This having happened, is there any way I can remove "Better Surf"?

I have a new laptop that I'm trying to move my booksmarks etc from my old laptop. I used sync once before on a laptop that I returned to the store because of repair issues. So, I know I've used it before. After I enter my email address, I didn't know my password so I reset it. When I went to use sync, I got the12 digits that were given to me on the new laptop and entered them into my old laptop. Then it would go to the next page and ask me to enter my username and password again and asked me for a recovery key. I have no recovery key. It says for me to go to options then sync and then recovery key. Well, I go to options but there is no selection for sync. It just lists the menu bar and tool bars and add-on bar. Under the Firefox button there is a set up sync option but when I tried that it said my username was already used. I would then select I've already got an account and the same thing would happen again! It asks for the 12 digits again and the cycle starts all over again. Now I've also tried my main Firefox password and it says there's no such password. So I have been sitting here for hours trying to figure this out. The first time I used it I had no problem at all! I put in the 12 characters and it synced. I don't understand why it's not working now. I really need an answer on this.

I have a recurring issue that's really annoying: my left/right arrow keys (including CTRL+arrow keys) occasionally and randomly fail to work when entering text in certain text boxes on certain websites. This never occurs in "simple" unformatted text boxes (Facebook, search boxes, this very box I'm typing in...), but unpredictably happens in more complex ones (WYSIWYG editors, new youtube comments...).

I have tried disabling all extensions and running Firefox in safe mode and this *seems* to have solved the problem, though I can't be sure and I can't isolate which extension it might be, since the issue happens at random: on the same website it will happen and then not happen.

I'm on Firefox 25.0, though I've had this issue for years with countless versions of Firefox.

The extensions I have installed and enabled:

Adblock plus Bamboo Feed Reader, Dimmer, Download Helper, Drag&Drop Zones, Flagfox, FlashVideo Downloader, Flashblock, Flashgot, Grab and Drag, MouseZoom, Status-4-Evar, Youtube High Definition

Thanks in advance for any help you may give me.
