Hi,

whenever I try to download any file of any type with Firefox 32.0.3 on my iMac running OS X Mavericks 10.9.5 logged in with a controlled user account, I get a message "failed" in the downloads window. The downloaded files are always empty and I have to remove them manually. For information, I've installed Firefox using my controlled user account.

If I log in with an admin user account, Firefox successfully downloads the files.

Your help is much appreciated !

Hi. After updating Firefox, I keep getting error messages with some sites. Sometimes it says '404 - Error', sometimes it opens up a Yahoo Search page saying 'DNS Solution Yahoo Error' and a list of strange sites it found, sometimes it's a Google page saying '404. That’s an error. The requested URL /gtm.js?id= was not found on this server. That’s all we know. ' I tried to uninstall Firefox and install it back, I tried with Firewall, I tried everything I came up with. Please help me! Thanks.

When the browser crashes, it's feasible that some of the data from sensitive web apps or sites could be included in a crash report. As such some enterprises want reporting disabled if the browser is being used to access sensitive data. Other than disabling Crash reporting from the UI, I can't seem to locate a configuration line to disable crash reporting - I can set breakpad.reportURL to null and to set HKCU\Software\Mozilla\Firefox\Crash Reporter\SubmitCrashReport = 0 (on windows) each time the user logs in. Is there a way to disable crash reporting permanently so that when a new profile is created it's not re-enabled?

When I open links in new windows it will display on the same monitor. In the past this had opened on the last monitor Firefox had been closed on. I have tired moving the screen over and closing on my second monitor, it worked in the past but does not anymore. I noticed this issue with the release of 32. I compare a lot data so not having to move the window to the other monitor would make my day easier. Thank you.

I got a message I thought was from Mozilla Firefox saying I have to update Adobe Flash Player. I did and ended up with Astromenda.

I went to control panel/programs and Features, found Astromenda, and uninstalled it. I then adjusted my options for my Firefox homepage and got rid of Astromenda on the open of Firefox. However, if I hit the "+" on the tab for a new tab I get a Astromenda search tab. I went to "searchplugins" in the Firefox profile and found Astromenda.xml and replaced with safesearch.xml. Didn't help, Astromenda is still there when I add a new tab.

I go to the web and found websites on how to get rid of Astromenda but they want me to download various adware cleanup tools but I am reluctant to download anything at this point unless it is sanctioned by Mozilla Firefox.

Thank you

Hello, in our company we all use firefox (different versions) to use our CRM (SugarCRM). Since some of the PC (with windows 7) updated to Firefox version 33 (64bit) we started getting the following problem while downloading PDF:

"C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Local\Temp\[tempfilename].part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read."

We tried to downgrade to Firefox 32 and everything seems to be working fine. I already tried to delete the profile, reinstall Firefox, clear cache, delete Profile folder, but nothing helped.

Can it be a Firefox 33 bug? Thanks

I feel like this is such a silly questions but for the life of me I cannot find the answer. The first time I opened the browser console (Ctrl+Shft+J) it was docked to the bottom of the webpage I was viewing. For some reason it has undocked itself and opens in a new window every time I open it now.

How do I get the browser console to dock at the bottom of the page again?

I tried clearing cache, looked at about:config for weird configurations, did a private browser window and disabled all extensions. None of these had any effect.

Test pages: Amazon.com and https://developer.mozilla.org/samples/cssref/background-image.html - both of these pages have background images loaded by CSS. For example, Amazon's logo at the top left is a background loaded from a CSS page. The image itself can be viewed raw: http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/gno/sprites/global-sprite-v1._V339353059_.png

So can this image: https://developer.mozilla.org/samples/cssref/images/starsolid.gif

But why, why why do these images display on their relevant webpage? I see Amazon, eBay, and many other websites without a full complement of images. Especially the ones used for menus and other important navigation buttons.

Here is what I see on the Mozilla page mentioned above: I see the text, but no repeating star image. This works in other browsers and on other computers in Firefox.

The page I am typing on right now has no blue background, the entry windows are not correct (like the search window is not a rounded gray box) and the search magnifying glass is missing. So this experience makes even simple pages impossible to use.

Firefox 32, Vista
