hello,

since today I notice that all text in firefox (56.0 mac-version) on certain sites appears only in question marks (in suqares). looks like that on sites like mozilla support (busy right now in safari) google.com, my banking site, tmobile, gmail and a lot other ones too. all those sites show totally normal in other brouwsers.

did the following troubleshoot 1) view > text encoding > unicode = OK 2) preferences Font & Color > advanced > checked 'allow pages to choose their own font' = OK

any other suggestions? (:

tried to enclose some screenshots (small jpg and png files) but the upload keeps spinning for ever... never mind.

thanks in advance for any help on the questionmark problem.

It's total mess on Mavericks (OSX), the UI's a joke, not to mention plain broken in a few ways... Any idea how to get it back to the way I had it configured, if not possible, then I'd like to go back to the prior beta release.

Thank-you.

While browsing Kijiji, I get the above message whenever I try to do almost anything except scroll. Even if I use the space bar, up it pops in its own little window entitled: Blank which is my default home page. Kijiji suggested I switch to Chrome... not going to happen.

I do not want any software installed without my expressed permission but I do want this message to go away, or at least allow me to say "Thanks! Good job! Now, go away till next a new occurrence."

Is there some setting I should change?

Thanks very much for any help.

After the most recent Firefox update, the drop down menus on web pages will not stay open. They close instantly, which makes it difficult to choose my selections. I do have some add-ons, but everything was working before the last update. If anyone know what may be causing this, your input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I went to list some items on eBay last night and part of the item description is not visible although if I go on Google Chrome all of the information is there. This only happened last night - never before. Some previous listings have the same problem but most do not. I worked with eBay and it appears to be a problem related with the Firefox browser.

There were two upgrades very close together. I upgraded and now have 29.0. No matter whether I'm going to an address, typing into a box, or waiting for a website to load, the Mac "beach ball" will spin for a few seconds before loading. I use the default theme. I have minimal - (Xmarks and Trend micro), which weren't a problem before. Is there something I can do besides disabling the add-ons?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Operating system: OS X 10.9

Starting about four months ago, I began to see untitled and non-selectable windows spawning after my browser had been open for a while (i.e. after I visited a few sites). The number of these invisible windows grows over time, but are removed if I close the browser and start a new session. This has persisted through many new versions of Firefox.

I tried turning off all of the add-ons. Still happened.

I tried keeping track of what sites caused the problem. No correlation.

Today I uninstalled Firefox, using AppZapper -- which should have removed everything -- then did a new install. The only thing that I imported were bookmarks from the backup directory in my old Profile folder.

...and it's happening again. Here is a screen shot: http://imgur.com/ojcODd1

Any help would be appreciated.
