until rev 31 you could recall a list of every entry you had mad to a field by clicking the field ie name, address ,city, st, zip, etc. this no longer works. The mouse seems to be working. It is as if the pool of entries was cleared and new ones cannot be entered.

I saw this thread:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/978186

but it doesn't help. mp3 attachments to gmail messages will not play in Firefox 31 for Win7 x64. I have tried clearing cache, cookies, making new profile, installing ancient WMP plugin. Nothing works. I get the "dark player" in gmail (Gmail preview) but I hear no sound, the progress bar does not move, and I get no gmail error.

Other mp3 files play fine in Firefox, just not in gmail or Google Drive. The mp3 attachments play fine in gmail using IE11 and Chrome.

Has Google disabled mp3 play in Firefox, or is something messed up with my Firefox installation?

Thank you....  :-)

No one has ever explained what sync is or why I would want it. A number of friends have tried this option and have had nothing but complaints about spam, cookies and the like. I don't want to be tracked by any commercial entity. I do not want content customized to what is perceived to be my needs based upon my history. Until I can get some sort of logical reason as to why it would help me, without going through a bunch of extra steps to insure my privacy I again have to ask, why would I want to use sync?

Since I update Firefox to the latest version i.e., Firefox 31, I'm consistently experiencing slow browsing issues. Plus, below are the other major problems need to be fixed ASAP:

1. Slow Browsing 2. Facebook games are running very slow (clearly the cache doesn't make any difference) 3. Alexa toolbar is not working properly (i.e., Instead of showing the site rank, it only shows "Private") 4. Upon opening more than 10 tabs, Firefox crashes and many more....

Please fix these issues ASAP.

When I am browsing any webpage, if a link is clicked, it just automatically redirects to Yahoo DNS server error page. Also, if I am on any webpage without clikcing on any link, after 5 to7 seconds, it redirects itself to Yahoo DNS server error page. This is constantly happening even after I reinstalled, rebooted etc.

For a couple of months I have found with a number of different sites that variously but frequently their pages fail to display or partly display at the first attempt. It requires a page refresh (and sometimes more than one) for the page to display properly. I tried a Reset in Firefox, under Troubleshooting, but if anything that seemed to make things worse! I am concerned that my web access is being incercepted and that is why the pages are being slow or failing to appear.

(I tried to accept your request fro troubleshooting info, but it said the connection to your site failed!)

Been away for a while and despite my anti Australis feelings, I still give it a try sometimes to see what changes. In previous FF versions when I went to my online bank, there was no pop-up of the password manager. This of course was fine because of security. But now with FF 31 when I go to my bank, I get the pop-up of the password manager asking if I want to remember the password. I choose not to and also choose not to remember the password. But this setting is not remembered: each time now when I go to my online bank, I get the pop-up of the password manager.

I've been using Firefox for years and never had a problem that wasn't easily fixed. However, recently Firefox is unable to download videos from youtube. I use download helper. When the save button is mashed the blue download arrow appears.

It's a real basic problem but it has me stumped. Any ideas? Thank you!

My You Tube won't open either from original site or redirected videos, saying "Server not found". This occurs through Firefox, Chrome and Safari alike. I use Mac Book Pro OS X 10.8.5 I recently had a very intrusive YAHOO Browser take over the scenario without warning and didn't allow my normal Google search. I got rid of Yahoo apparently...but it affected this You tube issue it seems ? What to do ? Cheers

So I put my MacBook Pro on the TV via HDMI cable and zoomed on some pages so everyone can see. Now, all of the pages that I was on are zoomed. I can manually reset each page using CMD+0 but there were a lot of pages and I would like to reset the zoom preferences for any visited pages. I already cleared my cache and cookies, restarted Firefox, and restarted my computer. Any suggestions?

With thanks

I set my page simply for google search engine, and now firefox comes up with the screen:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/31.0/whatsnew/?oldversion=30.0

which is an ad for firefox. I would understand if firefox had this in conjunction with the google search open at the same time, but if I have to load up google search then it is the same thing as some other ad hijacking my homepage.

Sometimes when power to my machine is cut Firefox does not restore the previous session. Missed to check the restore file on the primary profile, it was still there on the secondary so I just restored it there. Last time this problem came up (29, Australis Update) it was independent of profile but occurred randomly on either of them. From what I remember on any other crash (freeze, kill task) restore works fine, it's just on hard crash that it doesn't.

Hey, So I have 2 harddrives in my pc. I use one for writing a lot of data and another for my programs (this one is an ssd). I've installed firefox on the one used for programmes. When I dump a lot of data to my other harddrive, firefox stops responding. I would like to know why, because I know my pc can handle the data (when I dump data to the ssd I get 10x the performance).
