Previously this seemed to driven by an addin which I removed. Now each time Firefox updates itself every 1-2 days this problem reappears without the original addin. Because the chinese characters float over the top of the tab name it makes it difficult to read the tab name is is plain irritating.

This started to occur a few days ago, before that, I never had any issues. It may be related to Mcafee security, but could be anything.

Hello.

I am unable to delete history from the drop down menu, which was possible in previous versions. Are there any ways to restore this function?

To clear any confusion, it is this menu I am talking about: http://puu.sh/eJV5f/a27c84e84d.jpg http://puu.sh/eJV7j/bf53d357c5.jpg

I don't want video to play automatically. Flashblock achieves this for flash videos, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do the same thing for html5 video (on vine, for example).

None of the about:config settings appear to have any effect, and html5 isn't handled by a plugin so click to activate doesn't do anything either.

Asian words poping up on the Menu Bar and Tabs on Firefox Why?

Have you checked our known issues page? If your issue is not there, please provide a detailed description here: Yes this has been happening to me only on Firefox. I have used Malwarebytes Anti-malware(it stops a lot this software) to protect from this. But it is still occurring! I have McAfee as my principle anti-virus and us also a very good malware called Trojan Killer this operates in the background like Malwarebytes Anti-malware. And monthly or bi-weekly I download the new version of Adwcleaner which cleans crap out of everything, registry, malware ads, popup ads etc. So why this is happening with the Asian Lettering is baffling it is on Windows 7 as my OS. It is also annoying too you can not tell what the tabs are on the menu of Firefox, the Asian words cover or distort the screen!!!! If I rebot the computer it will be gone for a couple of hours and then slowly come back on Firefox's tabs! Any Ideas????? Quickmilt

After the latest Firefox update (34.0.5), I can't get Silverlight to work on Netflix. I get a black screen with no error codes.

Netflix has a checklist of things to do if you get a black screen (https://help.netflix.com/en/node/95), and I've done all of these things several times -- manually removing Netflix cookies, uninstalling and reinstalling Silverlight (and I used a Fix-It app on the Microsoft website to troubleshoot), disabling ad blockers and virus software, and scanning for malware. I've done all of these things, and nothing has helped. I can play Netflix videos in Chrome, but I think there's no reason why I shouldn't be able to use my preferred browser, especially since I was able to do it without incident up until Wednesday night.

I had two chats with Netflix tech support. Neither were much help, but the second person suggested that I uninstall Firefox entirely and then reinstall. I don't really want to do that. I'm not really that tech-y, and I'm afraid of losing my settings. Honestly, I would cancel Netflix before doing that.

Has anybody else had this problem? Are there any OTHER workarounds or suggestions of what I can try to fix this problem? Also, is it possible to be prompted when there's a new Firefox update.. and not have it automatically updated without my permission? I can't, by any chance, roll back to the version when everything worked fine?

I saw this as an answer to having Chinese writing hovering over my tab:

You can try to disable the McAfee MSC FF plugin DLL plugin in "Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Plugins"

If it is caused by a plugin then Safe Mode wouldn't have effect and thus wouldn't get noticed via troubleshooting extensions (plugins are not affected by Firefox Safe Mode).

what does that mean exactly? (I'm not super familiar with computers so please put it in easy explanation). Is it saying that McAfee is causing the problem? And if so, why? And if I disable the plugin does that put my computer at risk for viruses?

Hello I have a bunch of tabs, and some of them get periodically replaced with some javascript code? I'm not sure, but i did find a few people that have exactly the same problem:

http://windowssecrets.com/forums/showthread.php/161366-Code-in-Firefox-after-closing-all-tabs

And further this:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Internet_Email/Web_Browsers/Q_28246484.html

Now ,my pc is windows 7 ,running whatever the last version (always up to date) of firefox was at the time (a few months ago it started and then happened a few times)

I still have the tabs sitting like there like that , and would appreciate if there's a solution. I would like a solution to prevent it from happening again and i want to understand what the meaning of the code is and if there's somewhere within it that i can find the lost webpages.

Thank you
