This morning, everything that was in my exceptions list has suddenly disappeared. This list took years to compile. Thanks a lot Mozilla. Nothing special happened overnight as I simply put the computer to sleep before I did.

Locking duplicate thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/940362]

Several issues with the new update that I need fixed.

  1. The cursor is no longer in the navigation toolbar in a new tab.
  2. Once the cursor is in the navigation toolbar, hitting tab once no longer takes me to the search field to the right.
  3. Firefox refuses to stick as my default browser.

Mac OS 10.6.8, Firefox 16.0.1, PDF Viewer 0.6.39 installed. In Firefox>Preferences>Applications, PDFs are supposed to be handled by the PDF Browser 2.4.4 plug-in for Preview. However, when I try to view a PDF in Firefox, I get this:

"We are sorry, but Adobe Reader is unable to show documents in this browser configuration.

"Please use your browser to download this file and open it in Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat.

"To avoid this message in the future, many browsers provide a way to turn off certain add-ons, and some are able to show this document natively. Please contact your browser vendor for more details."

Why is Adobe Reader trying to open the PDF when Preview is the default? How do I disable Adobe Reader from doing anything in Firefox?

I made the mistake of clicking "check for updates" because it instead downloaded the update. I have my settings set to "check for updates but let me choose whether to install them" but the "Check for Updates" button does not allow me to choose... they're downloaded immediately.

This is a serious violation of my trust in Firefox and I will not allow these updates to be installed. If I can't stop them... I will uninstall Firefox and wash my hands of Mozilla permanently.

I have been using firefox as my main development page for a new website. I am using WordPress 3.4.2 and custom theme called Thesis 1.8.5.

The main nav bar contains 8 buttons; 1 to my blog which is the home page and the other 7 to static pages. These buttons all justify to the left. The right end of the bar contains buttons to Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and Feedburner. The are (or were) linked to images; these buttons justify to the right.

Here is the code that makes this work:

http://diythemes.com/thesis/rtfm/replace-wp-menu-text-links-image-sprites/

They worked fine until yesterday when I made some design adjustments to the space between the left button. Now rather than display icons, the underlying text shows on the right justified buttons.

Now here is what is interesting. I also have Safari and Chrome on my system. The icons show up fine in both of the them.

I can't find any explanation or fixes for this problem.

I will provide the site URL but it is in Maintenance mode so won't show the problem.

Thanks for your help.

I get a pop up message headed "Adobe Reader cannot show documents in this browser. It goes on to refer to the configuration of the browser. This has only happened since I installed Adobe Acrobat pro. I have uninstalled Adobe Reader and tried a few other options suggested by Adobe and Firefox but nothing has worked. Google Chrome (just downloaded) works ok but I would prefer to stick with Firefox. However I have wasted a few hours already trying to get this sorted and I am behind with my work so need to move on.

I have the same problem with every web site I try. I have just taken one at random below.
