When I get a link sent in an email, the link no longer opens when I click on it. When I click on the link, Firefox and the open internet tabs appear on my screen, but the new link does not open. I must manually copy the link, then paste it in the address bar to get it to open.

I hate icons. I'm not an ancient Egyptian. The invention of the alphabet is what allowed civilization to be what it is today.

1) How do I make the icons bigger -- they are miniscule & I can't distinguish one from the other, even if I knew what the stupid symbol is supposed to mean.

2) How do I get text that is LARGE ENOUGH TO READ when I Hover over an Icon? Note that my Minimum Font Size for web page display is 24 Point. I need that on all of the text which the Foxfile "application" shows me as well.

3) How do I eliminate the icons altogether and instead get a drop-down menu (in 24 Point type) in English?

I use a mac. After updating firefox a while ago, I can't really type foreign language (Chinese & Japanese) in firefox anymore. I can change to foreign language input when firefox first opens, but after a while, it automatically changes to English and i can't change the input source back (the words become grey and I can't select them). I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling firefox, still doesn't work. Please help me.

Since upgrading to the Firefox 4 RC (Mac, 10.6), I cannot hover on anything. My mouse cursor does not change at all. Please note, Firefox 3.6 and earlier worked perfectly fine.

For instance, if there's a drop down CSS menu (not a select box), I cannot hover over it to see it. I have to click before the :hover psuedo-selector is even applied. Also, when hovering over items in the bookmarks bar, the hover effect isn't applied there either.

I've disabled hardware acceleration, used AppZapper to completely remove Firefox, but nothing worked.

Is anyone else having this problem?

Support page says to just restart Firefox, which I've been doing via Force Quit since there's no other way. But this is happening every 1-2 hours, which is just unacceptable for prolonged work. It doesn't matter what site I'm on or what I'm doing when it happens. First multi-touch scrolling stops working, then I realize I can't click on anything, then I realize I can't change tabs. What causes this and is there a way to fix it? I love FF 4 otherwise so I don't want to go back.

EDIT: I submitted this right after FF had frozen and I restarted. Fifteen minutes later, it did it again.

Firefox 5 no longer has a way to save tabs when a Firefox window is closed (different than quitting the Firefox Application)

CLARIFICATION: This appears to be a Mac only issue.

In Firefox 4, closing a firefox window (perhaps only the last firefox window - I only ever use one window) would ask you if you wanted to save your tabs as long as you edited your about:config so that browser.showQuitWarning was set to true, but after upgrading to Firefox 5, this no longer works.

I've managed to set up Firefox 5 so that if i quit the application my tabs are saved without asking and they are restored upon re-launching the Application, but at least in OSX Snow Leopard, closing the only open window while leaving the Application running causes Firefox to forget your tabs and I've been unable to find a way to restore or proactively save these tabs.

I've started to change my workflow to always quit Firefox 5, but every now and then I forget and close the window instead, and *poof*, there go my tabs.

Is there any workaround to this problem?

I use Firefox on a Mac (Snow Leopard) and I recently updated Firefox to version 18.0. After I updated, Firefox will freeze everytime I go on Facebook and I would have to force quit it. One thing I noticed is that it crashes when almost everything is loaded but the chat. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Hello,

I am running the newest update for firefox (Version 38.0.1) on Mac OS Version 10.6.8. When I open a new window in firefox, the close, maximize, and minimize buttons are located in the top left corner, as usual. However, if I enter fullscreen mode on a video, and then exit, the buttons are not there. They are not simply invisible - clicking in their usual location has no effect.

Thanks, ReOsIr

In the update to FF 4, icons appeared next to all of my Bookmarks in the Toolbar.

If it's possible to disable these icons so the Toolbar only shows the text, please let me know.

If not, I'd like to put my 2 cents in to say I don't like this at all.

1) Partially because now only 60% of them fit across the top of the screen 2) Partially because I just don't need an icon to help me find which bookmark I'm looking for. 3) They are a total waste of space and make it look more cluttered.

Thank you.

Right after I upgraded to Firefox 4 I noticed that the browser would suddenly stop responding. No longer able to scroll through website, change tabs and when I try to close browser nothing would happen. Eventually I have to do a "Force Quit" on Firefox to get the program to close out. After that the browser will work without problems for awhile and then freeze up again. I tried reboot the computer and disabling my various plug-ins without success. I can not find a discernible pattern on when the freeze up occur. No particular time frame or website appears to be the cause. I am currently running MAC OS X 10.6.7. I never had this problem until I upgraded to Firefox 4.

When I try to print a web page ie an article from the NY Times or other newspaper, the first page prints properly with correct scale then the 2nd page is either blank or comes out in double or triple scale so that much of the page is missing. I have tried with both "Ignore Scaling" checked and unchecked. As an end-run, I chose a very small font and when the entire article is printed on one page, it comes out correctly. Just the 2nd and 3rd pages are affected. I have already downloaded another copy of Firefox 6.0.1 and have replaced printer drivers. I am using Mac OS 10.6.8 on a MacBook Pro.
