Within the last month I got a new computer, previously I had no issues with Firefox. Now, when I launch Firefox, it loads the 6 tabs I used my first session of using Firefox, which is espcially annoying because it autoplays a YouTube page. I only want my homepage to launch at startup.

While I am browsing i select between a lot of tabs and I do that quite often. My problem is that while I am changing tabs sometimes the tabs overlap. Meaning I have selected a tab but I still see the information from the previous one. Also when i move my mouse around the buggy tab the information from the old one disappears and it shows the information from the tab I have selected. This works only if my mouse moves over links or video. You can see it in the image.

This is getting really annoying because i have to change multiple times to fix this.

How can I fix this?

For awhile now, every time I open FireFox, the menu icon bar and bookmarks bar have switched positions so that the menu icon bar is immediately above the tabs, and the bookmarks bar is above that, instead of the other way around (see screenshot). If I open customize, and then close it, without changing anything, they switch places and go back to where they should be (bookmarks bar above the tabs, menu icon bar above that), but it's annoying to have to do this every time I use FF. I only have one extension related to menu bars, Tabs on Bottom, and I deactivated it and rebooted FireFox, but that didn't solve the problem. I also tried changing themes, to no avail. Is this a bug or is there some setting I can change?

Other stuff that may or may not be relevant: I have the awesome bar, URL bar, and all of my menu icons (sans text) on one line. I have the text menu bar also visible. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate, 1152x864 res with text at 125%. I always have at least a couple of tabs pinned.

On another computer I use (Windows 7 Home Premium, 1366x768 res, 100% text, also always have something pinned), I do not have this problem. However, on that computer, there is empty vertical space between the tabs bar and the bookmarks bar, as if another bar should be there (see second screenshot). I realize these may be two separate issues, but then again, they both seem to suggest an overflow issue, so maybe not.

Directions to delete search bar history by checking "Form & search history" do not work. Neither do directions to delete individual searches by scrolling down and hitting delete.

They appear to work but when starting a new search the history comes right back.

Site: crownguitarfest.org

YouTube videos embedded were working fine until today? Now they error: "An error occurred, please try again later. Learn More.

The videos still work perfectly in Chrome, and work okay in Safari (by installing the "ClickToPlugin" extension to Safari, the videos now play in HTML5 mode but no longer link to You Tube).

In Firefox, they don't play or link to You Tube anymore. I updated to the latest Firefox and Flash. I've been researching this all day today and going back and forth with my hosting support team at Site Ground, but we have not been able to resolve this issue, so I am contacting you out of desperation.

Can you please help me to get the You Tube Videos working properly in Firefox?

Thanks, John

Upgraded to 36.01 last night.

Tried using DownloadHelper for YouTube downloading and Awesome Screenshots for screenshots.

Plugins work, but once the process for downloading/saving to hard drive occurs nothing is downloaded/saved.

I have completed a FF Refresh and reloaded both plugins, same issue.

I have restarted the computer and issue remains.

The search bar on Amazon.com has stopped suggesting items or autocompleting what it thinks I want to search for. I don't know how this happened but I want it to work again. It was very helpful for searching on Amazon.com. It is only not working for Amazon. This autocomplete option still works on Google and Yahoo, just not Amazon. How do I make it work again?

The extensions were working fine earlier today. Firefox seemed to freezeup with a number of tabs open. I restarted it and when it restarted I noticed that my LastPass login tool on the menu was missing. Checking the addons option on the open menu showed that all extensions [ Avast, LastPass, ePub, Logitech and Skype] were disabled. I tried to update but no updates were found.

I used to be able to click on a link with my mousewheel and Firefox would open the link in a new tab. This has stopped working.

I'm using Windows 7 Pro and Firefox 36.0.1

Which settings should I check. Windows seems OK, I'm using the same old mouse and it stopped working on web sites where this technique used to work until a few days ago.

Every time I open Firefox, the Master Password prompt appears randomly within about 30 seconds. Sometimes I'm still sitting on the home screen when I get the prompt.

I have tried to refresh Firefox, reinstall Firefox, I've turned my Master Password requirement on and off, restarted the computer... nothing seems to work.

I would either like the prompt right away, as soon as I open my browser, or when it is actually required, like when I open a login page. Not the current, seemingly random appearance that disrupts me in the middle of web browsing.

This bug is so annoying that it is a deal breaker for me. It's especially annoying when I am starting to type something, then the Master Password prompt appears without warning and takes the cursor focus with it. I have to stop what I'm doing, deal with the Master Password prompt, then get back to what I'm doing.

In the meantime, I've switched over to Chrome, which is serving my needs fine, but I would like to come back to Firefox if I can resolve this issue.

Ever since I "refreshed" Firefox 36, a small black bar has appeared in the extreme upper right corner of the Firefox screen that exactly covers the Minimize/Resize/Exit buttons. Although the controls work properly when I click in the left/center/right area of the black bar, why is the bar there, in that exact spot, in the first place? And how do I get rid of it?
