Hi, i have been trying for awhile to download a program that i trust, but the downloads window stays on "unknown time remaining". Is there a way i can get it to show me more info on how much more data or time it needs to go before it's finished?

I don't want to hold my breath indefinitely, if i should maybe close out and restart the whole process?

My internet connection is currently excellent, so it can't be that.

I also cleared my download history, and also changed my downloads to a different folder.

If possible, iwish to avoid having to reset the entire FF browser.

Help anyone?

Thanks!

Firefox interface fonts are too small, and I can't find a fix...

I'm having a problem with the interface fonts on Firefox 46.0 on Linux (in this case, Kubuntu 16.04). They are far too small for my 24" 1920x1200 monitor.

Before I upgraded to version 46 I was using the Theme Font & Size Changer add-on by Baris Derin. Unfortunately, the latest release (45.4) no longer supports Linux (why, I don't know, but this is a problem). I attempted to install an older version of the add-on (43.4) but this doesn't seem to work. I can't find it anywhere in Firefox other than in my Add-ons Manager. I can't load up the configuration for it through the manager.

So, now I am stuck with tiny fonts, and it's hard to read.

I have read some references to setting the fonts in the userChrome.css file, but I can't seem to find a chrome folder on my machine. Does Firefox support this, still?

This has to be a common problem, and I hope there is a solution -- but I can't find one that works.

Hello, I have a problem with gifs and short videos on Firefox. Gifs on 9gag, or short animation on tumblr won't load, they appear as still images. If i try to open video in seperate tab, it only shows controls but isn't loading. No crashes or error messages. Problem didn't occure after any specific update or event. The only thing I'v done was trying to install some burning CD software like ashampoo and alcohol 120% to burn gift for a friend, so this might be some malware related error cause license on Kaspersky is expired for over 3 months. Everything wokrs fine in Edge and Explorer. Steps i have taken so far:

- Tried to refresh pages without cache (shift+left mouse button)

- Refreshed Firefox

- Launched Firefox in safe mode

- Reinstalled Firefox, Java, FlashPlayer and graphical drivers from Nvidia with clean installation using RevoUninstaller

- Installed beta version of Firefox

- Installed grease monkey script from this topic: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1114110 and tried to add 9gag to it.

- Checked media.something keys in about:config from various sites and topics revolving around this issue (none were set as in said topics, everything was on default)

- Installed QuickTime and VLC for codecs

Despite everything, things like this: http://img-9gag-fun.9cache.com/photo/aMGWZKW_460svwm.webm won't ever work. Can someone please help me? I love using FF and as much as i like to try Edge, i don't want to leave my favourite adblocker and ghostery.

I am using Firefox v46.0 on Windows 10 Home system. since recent upgrade I continually find a Shockwave error message pop-up which says shockwave has stopped working? I do not get any errors or problems in other applications nor browsers.

This has become a very frustrating and annoying distraction (delay) in my regular computer work. I was lead to believe Firefox was the most stable and secure browser available; however, recent comments on forums all over the web give me cause for concern that Firefox has lost it's way!

NO major updates and it was working earlier on this version of FF. V46. Many restarts in the meantime. Thoughts?

Same version on my laptop is OK so something has been corrupted. I wondered if restoring FF to factory would repair this though I am nervous this might lose my e-bay passwords and log in details etc.

Before I noticed this, I accidentally managed to engage a strange setting by holding my SHIFT key down for too long and this seemed to mess up a LOT of textual input stuff. I seem to have 'recovered from whatever that was (Filter Keys ?) though that MAY be a red herring, it has been the only significant glitch on my system for a long time.

NOT the most confident messing with my PC settings and web searches explain editing what looks like Thunderbird SQLlite files?

Windows 7 PRO, all up to date. AVG and Malwarebytes installed. (identical to my working laptop. Any ideas?

I downloaded the FREE -- "FromDoctoPDF" on my laptop while using Mozilla FireFox and now it shows up on my Browser as a tool bar which I did not want as I thought it was a program.

What I tried: I looked up: How do I remove FromDoctoPDF, BUT the instructions want me to Open Mozilla Firefox and click on TOOLS menu (which I cannot find anywhere). NOTE: others stated same comments as not finding the TOOLS menu as well - so cannot continue to remove due to this issue.

I looked another site: And it states to totally remove Mozilla Firefox, but still I cannot find the right drop downs to do this. Can you assist me please. Thank you, SuzanneDelaney

Firefox 46.0.1 is very slow loading pages. YouTube videos also take a while to load then keep buffering. Twitter won't log-in until I click log-in button a number of times. Some web sites seem OK but most struggle. I have Refreshed Firefox and also started in Safe Mode. My internet is fast. I have updated graphics driver. I considered going back to Firefox 45 and decided to download it. Firefox told me it would take 3 hours and I let it download for half hour. Then I downloaded it in Internet Explorer and it took one minute. My OS is Windows 10 64-bit. This slowness seems common judging by community posts. If this can't be fixed I will have to go through the hassle of installing version 45.

I just got a new computer and am trying to import bookmarks from the old one. Both computers are running Firefox 46.0.1. I've tried almost everything, trying to import the .json file, trying to import them in .html, trying to use sync, trying to swap the bookmarks files from my Firefox profile and nothing is working. I've also run the Places Maintenance add-on thing and it says my database is fine. Is my last resort just inputing the old bookmarks into the new system manually? Every time I try to import the backup file, no matter what format, it tells me it is "Unable to read the backup file."

RE: Firefox 46.0.1

      Facebook Website - viewing pages

Prior to updating/upgrading to the current FF version I was able to view various Facebook pages and not have the pop-up window asking to either create a Facebook account or login. Now, each time I open a Facebook page this window keeps appearing and partially blocks the page I want to view. I DO NOT want, nor need, a Facebook account! How do I go about removing, stopping, blocking, etc., this pop-up window from appearing? Extremely annoying!

Hi there,

I'm trying to troubleshoot an issue that seems to be specific to FireFox and a specific website.

If you browse to www.denali.gov with FireFox, and then on the right side of the page click on "Denali Commission Project Database", FireFox will first pop up a message that says: "Your connection is not secure"

Here is a direct link to the page: https://www.denali.gov/dcpdb/index.cfm?nossl=true&fuseAction=Indicators.ShowProjectMapLink

Then if you click on Advanced and click the "(Not secure) Try loading www.denali.gov using outdated security" that page will fail to load with the following error message:

"An error occurred during a connection to www.denali.gov. The server rejected the handshake because the client downgraded to a lower TLS version than the server supports. Error code: SSL_ERROR_INAPPROPRIATE_FALLBACK_ALERT"

Before anyone says "have you tried searching our forums or Google?", I've been researching this issue for the past hour and have not been able to come up with a solution. I checked the TSL settings on the "about:config" page and changed the version.min settings, but that does not fix the problem.

I have not been able to come up with anything, and so I turn to you guys... :-)


Has anyone seen this issue before and has a fix? The error is easily reproducible: Browse to the page using FireFox and I'm sure you'll see the same error.

However, the page loads fine in other browsers. Except, I don't want to use other browsers; I want to use FireFox.
