I'm trying to reduce the overall space of the top of the firefox page. I have the menu and the the bookmarks tool bars checked and between those 2 and the address and site header it takes up way to much real estate. My font size is good but the wasted area is way to much and I can't seem to find the simple answer to looking for addons and themes to just resize the height of the space. This is the new 33.1 and up to this point all custom has been a breeze. Thanks much.

I tried using the email link in Firefox 33. It opened an "open with" window. Checked for support online. Followed the instructions to configure the mailto client in the applications. When I searched for mailto it was not there. I reset Firefox. Turned off the computer for a while. When I started Firefox up again checked if mailto was in the applications list. It was there. I also noticed in my plugins H264 was there. I know it is part of the developers software now, but I do not want it. So I removed it. Then mailto was gone again. I reset Firefox again to see if mailto came back. It was still not there. Tried restarting the computer. Still not there. I have added some plugins. They are Better Privacy, Ads no more, Smart Ads Blocker, and Yahoo Mail Hide Ad Panel. Is it the plugins, or something else that is making this happen? Please let me know.

Firefox crashes approximately 3 times a day, it either just stops responding or closes spontaneously. The issue started spontaneously a few weeks ago. Usually I have 5 to 10 tabs open. Whenever it happens, I either search things on Amazon, watch news (flash player) or play games (flash player). I already reinstalled Firefox and updated adobe reader, java, and flash player plugins. Do you have any other suggestions what I could try to fix this issue?

Can't change the search engine. There's no search field at the top of my browser. Only an address field. I don't know where it went or how to put it back. I switched my search engine to DuckAndGo on the new tab page and the search logo disappeared so now I can't change my search engine from there.

I've followed instructions on uninstalling and then reinstalling the dashland plug in of my Mac using version 33.1. I just upgraded to 33.1 and Dashland is not working at all. Is there a workaround? Could I use the older version 33.0 until there is a bug fix with Dashland?

When posting to a forum the "Preview Post" button no longer works in Firefox. On a couple of forums I get a "Fetching Preview" message, but it never comes up. I have a similar problem with eBay. When I click preview it just opens to a blank page.

I can preview in Chrome, but would much rather make these work again in Firefox than switch over.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you, Bob

I have Windows 8.1, touchscreen. When responding to an issues email that then gives me the option to share on Facebook, the resulting share window does not format so that the share button is accessible to click or press. Thus, I cannot share anything. I have tried resizing the share window, but it just jumps around and never makes the button accessible.

Why do the new Tiles show password-protected content?

I updated to the new 33.1 version of firefox with the enhancements to the tiles displayed on a blank tab. I do not know if this behavior started prior to this update, or with it; just that my attention was drawn to it during the 33.1 tour.

Issue: Some of the tiles are displaying screenshots of pages that are password-protected. These are for sites that I am currently NOT LOGGED IN TO. Therefore, my expectation is that no protected data should be visible. This is not what is happening. An FTP site clearly shows filenames and data; my dropbox account shows the various folders, etc. Again, these are accounts I am signed out of, so there is no way firefox should have cached images of them.

In my opinion this is a serious security bug that needs addressed. In the meantime, any way I can disable this behavior?

In the last week ads appear when I search on Amazon and YouTube. Usually Adblock Plus has worked but this time they are not blocked. I can't tell who is doing this and I haven't installed any new software recently so I have no idea why this is happening. If I search for Lego, I get Lego offers from other sites. However, on youtube the ads can be more unsuitable.

Please help as some of the images are very unsuitable for my 5 year old.

Thanks, Peter
