I recently installed an AddOn (ZenMate) which I later uninstalled because it was buggy. I regret ever opening it.

It's taken over my proxy settings. When I launch FF, it now says "The Proxy Server is Refusing Connnections". I go into my network settings, and notice it has selected automatic proxy configuration, with a link to some zenmate garbage. So, I reset it to no proxy, and voila! Problem solved. Except it's not. Upon exiting FF, and then launching again, it resets to that auto proxy garbage everytime.

Can anyone please help?

Thanks!

When starting Firefox normally keyboard and mouse input is very slow. Videos are choppy with interrupted sound. Scrolling is almost impossible. When starting in safe mode, Firefox runs very well. Internet Explorer works well as does Thunderbird. Have tried refreshing Firefox as well as disabling add-ons.

hi,

I have been working on improving performance on my Wordpress site, one of the things I have done, I switched to dynamic delivery of CSS and JS files (so they are compressed by PHP), which worked very well for performance tests.

Now, I have ALSO added this to the .htaccess in my JS and CSS folder (wp-incldues) on a wordpress site:

<filesMatch "\.(js|css)$">
Header set Content-Encoding x-deflate
# Header set Content-Encoding compress
# Header set Content-Encoding x-gzip
</filesMatch>

for compressing JS and CSS files. this works fine on IE, CSS, Android and speed tests, but the bad thing is that the website appears broken in Firefox 38.0.1, it cannot load my menus and Revolution Slider (image carousel).

main error seems to be jQuery is not defined..

here is a collage that shows the errors...https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/28979877/FirefoxErrorsCollage.png

is there anything else i could change in that .htaccess syntax that will make every browser happy?

any thoughts?

many thanks, Gabrio

So...suddenly my Firefox (v. 38.0.1) is really laggy, with slow-to-respond buttons, scrolling etc. So I manually disable all addons, but to no avail. Then I try safe mode and it runs fine. Great. So I enable my addons again one by one, until they're all enabled and it's still running fine. My conclusion: it can't be the addons. What could it be that's causing this? I have updated all my addons and only have Silverlight, Flash, Google updater, Shockwave and a couple of others. One solution would be for this mode - Safe with addons running - to be my default startup mode, but I can't work out how to do that. It's no huge problem because I can make Firefox run fine, but it's a bit time consuming. Any ideas?

I recently noticed that when I am working in WordPress, or using an online text editor, or tech support anywhere, I am getting hidden code added at the bottom of the text area box:

521

I have tried using IE/Safari/Chrome on the same sites and none of them add this code. While the code is set to "display:none", it still shows up sometimes. I have to remember to check every page in code view, delete it, then save while in code view. As soon as I switch to "visual" mode, that code is inserted again.

I have searched for link64_adl_tabid and find other people asking about this with no solution, as well as links to pages that contain this code (like forums, tech support, etc.). Anywhere that people are posting, there seems to be this hidden code added.

I also tried using Firefox with all add-ons disabled - it still occurred.

Any ideas? It's driving me crazy and it's a real PITA to have to remember to remove it all the time.

I've tried to view videos on cbsnews.com and abcnews.com (nbcnews.com has no problems), but have had no success on either site. On cbsnews.com, I get a request to disable Ad-Block; I do so, but I still get the request. On abcnews.com, the videos won't even load. When I contacted cbsnews.com' technical help, they suggested I switch to Chrome; I can view both sites' videos without any problem, but I'd rather not have to switch browsers just to watch videos. Has anyone else run across this problem, and if so, what solution did you find. Note: one of the posts I read recommended downloading and installing a package from Microsoft; I tried half a dozen times, but could not get the package to download.

1. Under the Security Tab in Yahoo Mail; In history of activities I can see i.e from which browser I logged in and from which geographical place. It shows Firefox correctly but since some time(I don´t know for how long) it shows a different geographical place not to far from where I live. It has changed because I can see the "older/former" place under the same history-tab(I always log-in from the same place by the way).

2. Yahoo Mail doesn´t seem to recognize my browser/identity in the correct way because Yahoo always claim that I have not logged in before using this browser/place! How did I understand I have this problem? I started to use an extra security-routine through SMS-service due to problems with the Yahoo-pages. To log-in today I have to use this SMS-code.

3. I have the same problem on facebook

I have my system set to tell me when a new upgrade is available. That happened today. I uploaded the latest upgrade. My Firefox is now sitting at 38.0.1.

I don't use tabs. I want a new separate window for everything I open. Since the upgrade this morning... when I open a brand new window it is fine. But when I click on something in that window when a new opens it doesn't appear to be a full new window. There are no tool bars and there doesn't seem to be any way to have any toolbars displayed. Therefore I have no control over that new window except to minimize or close. That's it. It is not appearing as a tab either.

This sucks! Was this intended?

How do I get back to the previous version before this morning's upgrade? Otherwise I will have to find another application to use other than Firefox because i don't like this at all.

Thanks,

ksburrus

I have used Firefox for years and lately have ran into a problem. On start-up is always displays a bar across the bottom of the screen asking if it may report the Data Settings under the Advanced Options. In addition, I cannot change the History setting, allowing Firefox to track my history. Or allow the tracking of Third Party Cookies. Any changes I make in the settings will not take hold, and I get the same results after each try. In addition... isn't there a button to click on to "Save" any changes. None on my screen, so I only assume it auto changes on exit and re-start. ???
