After I upgraded to the latest version of the Firefox the print on most sites I visit became virtually unreadable because the text is so faint. In same cases I have to block the text to be able to read it. It became impossible to use the "Reply" or Compose" in gmail (online) because the default type-size is so small and faint (grey? or light?). I literally have to go to a notepad to compose my message, then block and copy, and finally paste it into the reply window. I played with default colors, etc but nothing seems to fix it. I even used the classic-theme restorer add-on and still no improvement...

Anybody else have this problem? What is the solution?

I have constantly changed my home page to "about:blank" and indicated that I want Firefox to start with my home page. However, every time Firefox opens it automatically changes my hom page to bitable.com. How can I stop bitable.com from overriding my change of the option for my home page?

This all started 5 hours ago, when I tried to download a .doc file from my school website but Microsoft Word opened it with "file conversion" options and the preview is filled with unreadable codes. I was using Nightly 64-bit on a newly installed Windows 8.1 64 bit system (about a week ago after I upgrade my ssd).

1. I tried open other .exl file from the same website, but Microsoft Excel could not open it at all saying the file is corrupted. I used IE 11 to download the same files and it worked perfectly. Problem with Nightly it looked like.

2. I reset Nightly then tried to download the same file again, not working. Tried safemode disable all addons and try to download the .doc file. It surprisly worked!. So it seems like an addon problem. Then I disabled all addons manually restarted again but tested not working. I was really frustrated at this point so I believe my Nightly was hacked by malware or some hidden plugins.

3. Uninstalled Nightly then I cleaned all files left with Ccleaner. I checked full scan with Windows security essential; downloaded malware cleaner "Malwarebytes". Yes a few malware like files were detected and cleaned up.

4. Downloaded waterfox 64-bit but now more problems appeared. It still cannot download the .doc or exl file now. The right click menu is not showing up at any webpage, image or highlighted texts. Ctrl+click link to open link in new tab is not working, just nothing happens. I try to reset or safemode restart, Nope! the help menu is gone, perfectly clear!

In brief, I would not like to reinstall my OS for this issue. I wish I could find some software remover that detects firefox virus pluggins. I don't want to try the 32-bit version of firefox for this issue.

Thank you.

Hi, I recently added a new computer (Windows 7) to my Firefox Sync. With out realizing I accidentally set it to sync its book marks to the my other computers, as it was a fresh install of FireFox it has nothing but the default ones and a couple as I set it up. I have now lost a few hundred bookmarks off my main machine, is there a way to retrieve them or will I have to try and manually recreate it all? Thanks,

I'd rather illustrate it by using a screenshot than describing it. Anyway, I do not know which Add-on, or combinations thereof, but the very first line under the menu bar item "View" is blank, that's all - a minor glitch. I do not know who to contact to show this glitch to, is there anyone open to or interested in this feedback?

eBay font is still displayed properly using IE. BUT gradually, eBay font has been changing font size within a given page of eBay. "My eBay" has 10 drop down selections. These 5 are OK: Bids/Offers, Watch List, Purchase history, My Collections, Messages. These 5 have font so small almost invisible: Summary, Wish List, All Lists, Selling, Followed searches. Hopefully, a fellow eBayer is seeing these changes too.

I'm guessing eBay programmers have been tweaking Internet Explorer to properly display fonts on all pages, as Internet Explorer has had its own eBay font size issues in the past. But now using Internet Explorer looks good! However, in the mean time, Firefox has really gone south. My guess is the tweaking of IE has now wrecked FireFox's ability to display the font sizes properly in eBay. Ask me questions if you aren't seeing what I'm seeing. I can send some screen shots. Thanks, Tom Smiley

When logged on to my bank (business account) and setting up weekly payments I can set up a couple of them but then I get the "the connection was reset" etc error message. If I try to log in again I just keep getting the same message.

Then I have to open up Chrome, log in to the bank, and finish the job with no trouble at all. Generally I prefer to use Firefox; but maybe not for much longer!

Since my system was getting sluggish I've decided to format everything and reinstall Win 8.1 back with FF32.

I was normally logged in and have stored approx. 100 passwords and bookmarks in that FF32.

After reinstall I've logged in to FF Sync and found an unpleasant surprise: Even though all check boxes are ticked - everything is emply. Nothing is being fetched.

What the hell? I dislike losing everything. I do have backup but not completely up to date.

sigh
