In the Location bar : When I go to this support page, I see 'Mozilla Foundation (US)' in Green. When I go to the Hotmail Login page, I see 'Microsoft Corporation (US)' in Green. When I go to the about:config page, I see 'Firefox' in Red.

I just want to see the address, and not the additional information. How can I do this?

Also, in the css file, #PersonalToolbar { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 0 !important ;} does not work to place the bookmark bar on top.

Please help.

I made the mistake of downloading the "new" Firefox with AOL toolbar. I did not like it, and deleted the toolbar per instructions. However, whenever I open a new tab, it comes up as AOL instead of as the tile history. How do I get my tiles back? I don't see that little gear all the help pages talk about......

I have a basic html form embedded in a Wordpress footer widget to collect email addresses and I can place the cursor in the input field (there is only one input field) but I cannot see what I'm typing. If I enter an invalid email address (without being able to see what I'm typing) and hit the submit button I can see on the error page (since a valid email address is required) what I originally typed. The URL is askdrkyle.com and the form is on the left hand side of the footer.

I do not have this problem in any other browser.

Thanks!

I have just reinstalled my operating system and ALL of my bookmark's favicons are empty (small box with a dotted border). Not just in the bookmarks bar, but in all my bookmarks folders. This is happening on both Firefox and Firefox Dev Ed. Not in other browsers. I've tried the Restore Empty Favicon extension; no joy.

Any answers?

Thanks.

I'm at a loss to figure out how I can bookmark a page and have the bookmark be in a subfolder of my bookmarks. I used to be able to do this easily, now I have no idea, other than to click the star, which animates over into the icon next to it, then go into manage bookmarks and manually drag it from my recently bookmarked folder into where I want it to go. Is there an easier way? (using FF35 on a mac) RJH

Here is the one that never loads (just get bouncing circles) https://wordpress.com/post OR https://wordpress.com/post/13725633/new/ Now that I restarted my browser, I can't get anything to come up on my Wordpress account. I have been through this with Wordpress and still cannot fix. I gave wordpress.com an exception in the blocking preferences

Also, my blog on Wordpress has a grey warning mark on the address bar.

I can load all of this on safari just fine.

All of a sudden when I open a new page on FIrefox, the browser reads "searchmoose.com" I can't find out much about it and can't seem to delete it. I've set my preference to Google, but searchmoose.com shows up every time. It's not encrypted so obviously I don't want to use it. It also affects Safari. HELP!

I'm running Firefox 35.0.1 on a MacBook running OSX Yosemite. I open the Add-ons Manager, navigate to Plugins, and click "Check to see if your plugins are up to date". This takes me to the Plugin Check page. However, none of my plugins are listed on that page. I use Firefox as my primary browser and mainly work on Windows machines. I'm new to Mac, so perhaps that's the problem.

Any suggestions, tips, or other help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

When I go to "Tools" / "Plug-Ins" and click on "Check To see If Plugins Are Up To Date" it goes to Mozilla Check Your Plugin Page, but fails to show plugins or checked plugins update status. I am using OS X 10.10.2 / Firefox 35.0.1 / February-7-2015

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_campaign=plugincheck-update

Tried, re-installing over original, clearing cookies, clearing cache and starting in Safe Mode to no avail. Mozilla has gone of track once again. Situations like this are among the causes for Firefox rapidly losing Browser share. Another ridiculous oversight and there's never any support for when things do go awry. No professional concern, with a competent cause and cure. none.

Ironically the "check to see if your plugins are up to date" web site loads the plugins and their update status in Safari and Chromium. But still does not show the plugins or their update status when loaded in Firefox 35.0.1 on OS X 10.10.2.

Need info and a fix, please... Thanks! Whitebuck
