I went to a link I got from a bud to download some family pic in his cloud, well once their this pop up came telling me update firefox see below: I Did NOT update and now all hell has broken loose, every time I click on anyplace it opens 5-8 pop up to a game site and now I've got ads all over my browser page. I even uninstalled the old version and installed a clean one. Exact, same results

Hello,

This is a reprise of the bug show here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/976644

My trackpad today started to randomly stop being able to two finger scroll up or down. Like the OP I found exiting and entering temporarily restores scrolling for a short time. I'm unsure how to fix this. Am I alone, or is anyone else having this same issue?

I have a late 2013 Macbook Pro using OSX 10.9.3 and Firefox 30.

I have had a problem with FF crashing when I print. This happens in Safe mode, as well as standard. Following instructions, I reset FF. No crash. I reset the home page to one of my choice, and crash occurred. I tried a couple of others (after resetting, again,) and the same thing happened.

This may be something to look at. As long as I have the default home page in place, I can print.

I have submitted this multiple times. Here is the latest crash report: bp-2c6028fd-a16d-4672-9d21-753232140530

I have a new MacBook Air. I have tried downloading several Download Helpers to download videos from YouTube, but none seem to work. When I downloaded the product "Dowload Helper" I did see an icon on the tool bar. When I would open Firefox I would see it in color momentarily, then it would "ghost". It would never activate or spin on any videos.

Can't sign in to gmail

When I click on the red and white "GMail" envelope icon at the top of the Friefox page, it used to take me to my GMail sign-in page. Now it takes me to this page: https://www.google.com/gmail/about/

When I redirect to the sign in page I can't sign in. In other words I put in my username and click on "Next", the button flashes but doesn't do anything. It used to take me to the next step (Password) where I would input that, hit "next" again and it would open my inbox.

I may have caused this glitch by trying to correct a different problem: Before this started happening, when writing an email, the selection buttons (font, size, color, etc) were all blank. So I went into my settings and tried to resolve this and maybe I messed something up. I tried downloading firefox again and tried restarting the computer and firefox, etc. Nothing helps.

PS: Eerything in Gmail works with Safari...

Why does it seem like every time Firefox installs an update, all of my add-ons disappear?!! It is so GD infuriating and frustrating, because I have to go back and figure out which ones I had and reinstall them... Why is that even a thing? Why would they design their stupid browser like that? Please correct me if I am wrong and tell me what I am doing wrong....

How to change text and icon sizes in Firefox running in MAC OSX 10

Using Firefox 32.0.3 on my 27" iMac works fine. About two months ago I purchased a top of the line 15" MacBook Pro laptop. The operating system is still OSX 10.9.5 On this 15" screen the height of the toolbars is too small, the toolbar icons are very small, the text size is small (I can increase the text size in a window using Control+, but the increase is temporary. The text returns to the small size if I exit and restart Firefox. Very annoying). Using the application Pocket opens a sidebar, where the text size is so small (about 1mm high!) that I can hardly read it. I tried to find the solution to my problem, but I couldn't. Please advise.

Hi! My firefox version is 54.0.1. I simply can't login to my Google accounts because the next button is not responding. Also, I noticed some sites where login is concerned also doesn't work. It also has this weird security wherein even visa application sites doesn't work and requires an exception in order for it to properly function like the Taiwan Embassy site. Please help. Thanks.

I'm looking for an answer to disabling cloud-based sync services in regards to an enterprise reqeust. This prevents saved passwords or other sensitive data being uploaded to the cloud, and also prevent the user syncing that data with an untrusted device. I can't find an option to disable Sync (specifically the "Sign in to Sync" menu option) apart from setting some of the configured sign-in URI's to null. Is there a way of just disabling the function?

I have a valuable history of browsing in Safari that I would like to bring over to Firefox. The only solution I have been able to find after an hour of searching is this product; iMazing. It appears to do just what I need, by exporting the Safari Browsing History from the database to HTML which it says can then be Imported into Firefox. Sounds good, but I would prefer to not have to buy a 3rd party product. Any clues? Thank you.
