I don't know what happened but I haven't changed any settings and now my Firefox keeps opening new tabs and switching to them even though "When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately" is unchecked in settings and both browser.tabs.loadInBackground and services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.tabs.loadInBackground are set to true in the about:config. I've also tried the extension "Switch to tab no more" and that doesn't work. I have no idea what caused my browser to act this way but it's pretty frustrating.

I don't know when this happened, but today I noticed that I cannot paste text into youtube comments on firefox. It still works just fine on Chrome. I tried to use an addon to copy plain text only, but that didn't help, nor have I ever needed it before.

Is this google's latest monopoly trick or something, or what is going on?

Hi - I want to get some screenshots of the pop-up blocker activating in Firefox, but even though I am visiting a website where Pop-ups are blocked, it only very briefly shows the warning and then disappears. I want it to display properly so I can screen-grab it and show my users how to allow pop-ups for a particular site (without them going into settings and doing it manually).

Any ideas how i can re-enable the pop-up blocker warnings?

I have looked at a couple of settings in about:config, but they seem to imply it is active:

browser.popups.showPopupBlocker;true privacy.popups.showBrowserMessage;true

Firefox updated itself a week or so ago and now all of my bookmarks are gone. I tried following the instructions to restore them from and old backup, but the oldest backup I could choose was August 22nd, which did not contain my old bookmarks. I am a teacher and have been accumulating these bookmarks for years now. I have to get them back!!!

I have FireFox version 40.0.3 running on a Dell XPS laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium.

When I right-click on a tab to "Bookmark All Tabs" in a window, the dialog box that pops up is really long and thin...I mean, "scroll across the entire width of the page a couple of times" long. (I'd estimate that the box is about 150px high and almost 4000px long.)

What's more interesting? This box is getting longer the more often I bookmark stuff.

Whassup?

I was in the middle of some downloads from the Internet and all of a sudden I got some Russian looking boxes that popped in and it basically looks like I loaded a Russian program called Yandex. It appears to be a browser. I got rid of everything that was visible in my programs with uninstall commands. However, when I am in Firefox and want to add a new tab, it automatically opens this Yandex browser. It doesn't appear to be doing anything bad to my system, but i still want to get rid of it. I've deleted cookies and everything else i can think of. The only evidence that tells me that it's still in my computer is a search that reveals it's a shortcut to the browser. But why it activates when I try to open a new tab in Firefox, and why i can't get rid of it is a mystery.

I have a website up for a product of mine. When you click on "Download Now" it pops up an email opt-in form from my GetResponse auto responder. It works fine in Chrome and IE but in Firefox it pops up a blank white square. Why won't Firefox display this? You can test it here: http://clickmoves.com/exitsp/ and click on the button to download.

Your new "signed apps" will not allow use of unsigned after version 41. This will not allow Epson's "E-Web Print" app at present, and description says you will disable rather than allow me to assume risk. I love Firefox, but will not trash my new Epson printer - so will be forced to use another browser. Will you ALLOW users to assume risk for non-signed apps for a longer period, so such exclusions do not occur for those willing to assume risk?

Hello, When I try to access tumblr it gives me Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain and no option to carry on to the site. It's only doing it with this site, I haven't made any recent changes that would effect this. My date is correct, I am not using a conflicting virus software like kapersky, I just have ad-aware. I ran firefox in safe mode with no change, it's been doing this for two days.

Thank you.

This article: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Prevent_websites_from_disabling_new_window_features says to open '"about:config"' and change all '"dom.disable_window"' entries to true to prevent windows from opening without the toolbars. As you can see in the clips, the only bar on these windows is the address bar. But only a few of the icons on the bar are displayed. Compare clip 1 and 2 to clip 3. What more needs to be done with this to keep the toolbars?

When I bring up (say) a magazine article in my browser and wish to print it for future reference, the print preview and printed image "lose" lines of text between pages when compared with the original image in the browser. For example: check this link: http://www.pcauthority.com.au/Feature/408318,how-to-make-windows-admin-easy-with-powershell.aspx?eid=2&edate=20150828&utm_source=20150828&utm_medium=newsletter&utm_campaign=weekly_newsletter&nl=weekly then select "print"from the menu. The print preview that appears - whether displayed in portrait or landscape - loses one or two lines of text so the print version can wind up useless. Where does the missing text go? the pagination is not identical and Firefox seems unable to handle it.

I'm using an HP desk top with Intel i7 CPU 8GB of RAM and Win 7 Pro SP1. Firefox is V40.0.3
