I loathe the current version of Firefox, and was much happier with the previous version. I'm afraid I don't know what the current version number is, and don't know what the previous version number was, but so far as I know it was the latest before this new version.

How do I revert to the earlier version, while keeping all my addons and bookmarks? If I can get the previous version I will certainly store it on my computer so I don't have to ask this question again.

Regards, Alex

I noticed a few days ago that the fullscreen function no longer works for embedded YouTube videos in Mozilla. Then tonight it occurred too me to check and see if t works when you watch a video at YouTube.com. I tried several videos at random and none of them had the fullscreen function. The fullscreen button (box) is there, but when I click on it nothing happens.

I also tested videos at Hulu.com, DailyMotion.com, the Internet Archive and Veoh.com, and the fullscreen function is fine on all of those sites - it is only YouTube that seems to have a problem. I also tested the same videos in the Internet Explorer browser and they work there for all of the sites mentioned, including YouTube.com.

I hope this can be repaired, I really like the Mozilla browser and would hate to have to switch to something else.

I have followed the instructions from the forum. I uninstalled Flash Player. I installed the latest plug-in. When I RUN the Flash Player install application, I get the Adobe Installer box, but it is blank. I have let it sit for extended time (over 30 minutes) and is does nothing. When I close the box, Windows Explorer opens and looks like it is on the Adobe website, but there is nothing displayed in the viewing area.

I used to be able to open multiple tabs within the same Firefox window. Now, every time I click a link or access an external hyper link, a whole new window opens instead of a new tab in the existing window.

browser.link.open_newwindow is set to integer type and value of 3.

This doesn't seem to matter. The problem persists. I don't want to do a refresh or uninstall and reinstall a fresh copy. What can I do to fix this? Like I said, it was never this way before and it seems to have started happening out of nowhere.

Some months ago Firefox started prompting when i went into full screen mode : Allow or deny - it's irritating. I wantt o allow always without the prompt.

I know about Tools>page info>permissions but that is only url by url.

I found something that worked in here before, but it seems to have reset when firefox restarted. And i can't find the method this time around!

Thanks

I had my firefox display my bookmark bar under the url bar. Its set to show, but none of the bookmarks are showing up anymore. It's just an empty bar. Even in safe mode it's an empty bar. I used to have my frequently used url's on there, but they recently disappeared. Now I'm left with an empty bar with no use, and i was wondering if I could get it back. Below I have linked to the picture of what my status bar looks like. https://www.dropbox.com/s/609pci1oz4bwcal/Firefox%20bookmarks.PNG?dl=0 Any help would be appreciated

Please fix Mozilla Firefox. Suggesting that users get rid of skype is not a solution. I have an older computer, and when I use that, I don't have these script errors, apparently because that computer wouldn't accept the latest skype update. So no problem on that one. I need skype on both computers and I can't continue working at the slow pace that this script message is causing.

My Firefox Sync is failing to connect (error.login.reason.network) and I am running through all the solutions available here as well as checking local LAN issues, but each time I make a change am I supposed to just for the next sync? How often do they happen? Can the timing be changed? There is no support article on forcing a sync or on watching it sync.
