Wicked thing happened. I changed my host provider,

when i type www.domain.com it forwards on www.www.domain.com and thus i cannot see the page if i type www.domain.com/DIR it does work...

it happens ONLY on this computer and ONLY on firefox (updated 37.0.2) i have a Mac OS X 10.9.4

with chrome it s Ok with a PC it s OK

(i don't have a second mac to test)

the only thing i did was editing the Host Database table to add a domain

  1. Host Database
  2. localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
  3. when the system is booting. Do not change this entry.

127.0.0.1 localhost 255.255.255.255 broadcasthost

When filling out forms in the browser I sometime accidentally hit Ctrl-w from muscle memory. The ctrl-w is a write function in another program I use. When I hit Ctrl-w the window close with no warning and I can potentially use an hour of work.

Is there any way to configure firefox so it will pop up a confirm box when I click on the Ctrl-w warning me the browser window will close.

It is a very nice safety feature for touch typist that sometime moves too fast.

Thanks.

Since updating to Firefox 40.0 (in OS X 10.9.5) browser windows and the toolbar show strange black lines and squares when the window is resized. Websites are messed up with black backgrounds or disappear beneath a black layer. The toolbar often disappears too, except for the three Mac resize buttons. It renders Firefox completely unusable.

It’s similar to what is described here: https://support.mozilla.org/nl/questions/1071126 and the bug described here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1032769

None of the offered solutions or workarounds seems to help. Disabling all add-ons and extensions doesn’t help either. I only use the Default theme.

Solution To my own surprise the issue disappeared completely when I installed and started to use another theme (Simple White)…

So it seems that Firefox’s Default theme has a serious bug?

I have registered with mozilla support, and I can sign in using my user name and password. To set up sync, I have to use my email address. When I try to do this, it says that an account with my address already exists, even though I have never set it up. At the same time, it will not recognise my support password, nor will it allow a new password without trashing the account.

Any thoughts?

The new Firefox update makes it impossible for me to use it. It won't let me click on certain things and open certain sites. I'm all for security, but getting an update like this without knowing what to do made me download Chrome and use it instead.

Where can I go to find out how to keep Firefox running? For instance, I'm a journalist and often go to sites that have submenus, and these annoying floating dialog boxes, some of which I need to click on. Firefox won't let me do that.

Any help would be greatly appreciate it. I'm about to reinstall Palemoon. Thanks,

Yesterday, I had a page pop up directing me to download a new Mozilla add-on that would increase browser security. After I completed the install, my browser search has kept defaulting to Bing instead of Google. I have checked several forums including your own for instructions, but as you can see in the attached image, my settings to use Google are still in place and I cannot figure out why it's still defaulting to Bing. I don't want to completely uninstall Firefox if I don't have to, as I would lose all of my saved Bookmarks and other data, but what else can I do to fix this?

v70 seems to have reset my config settings and brought back the urlbar suggestions dropdown.

When I had this same problem back in v65, it was solved by going to about:config, search for "browser.urlbar.maxRichResults", and set the value to 0. FF V70 has reset the value to 10.

When I try to reset the value to 0, though, double-clicking on the value gives me a blank dropdown menu, and FF immediately locks-up (completely unresponsive and a beachballing cursor), and I have to force-quit. I get the same result by right-clicking the value and selecting Modify. So, now I'm stuck with the urlbar suggestions, and apparently I can't edit *any* config settings.

I received a "how to" sheet of how to be able to view this website but it wants me to download Internet Explorer (excuse me while i say yuck!)...

So the directions state: Under "Tools" click on "compatibility view settings". Where is says "add this website" write in the website and then click add and close. Log off and reboot.

I live on Mozilla on all my devices. I recommend it to anyone who has not been introduced yet. I cringe to think of being forced to use internet explorer!!!

Thank you for all you do!!!

If I open a Medscape slide show, of skin lesions for example, there are 2 buttons that can be used to advance the slides: one at the right edge of the picture itself and one just above the picture. Neither of them work. When I click on the arrows they turn black as if they're going to work but nothing advances. Neither does using the arrow keys on the keyboard. Java and Flash are recently updated. The slideshow works just fine in Safari. Any ideas?

I have got this purple sign in the upper right of the browser. Every new tab I open says " your are browsing in private mode" (in dutch). So my history isn't saved. In my preferences I have UNchecked " always use privatebrowsing", and checked "remember history and downloads". And by the way I also checked 'always ask for where to keep downloads' which doesn't work anymore in this new version. Bug?

If I click on a blank field no cursor appears. If I click on another window eg. a safari window and then come back to firefox, the cursor is now in the field I clicked on. Then I type in e.g. a dollar amount, but no numbers appear then I go to safari and comeback to firefox and the numbers are there. Then I try to scroll down using my trackpad and nothing moves then go to safari and come back and the screen has scrolled. The same happens if I go to another window e.g. open office and then return. This began after installing el capitan. At first I may have had a lack of RAM, but I have taken care of this. Ideas? Is there any way to reinstall Firefox completely, preferably without losing my bookmarks to see if this helps? I'm on version 43.0.2.

Took my MacBook Pro to be serviced and they updated my software, including, apparently Firefox. I have FireFox 50.0.2 on Mac OSX 10.9.5. Now I no longer get the "Oops! This is embarrassing" page after a crash or restart, and when I click "restore previous session," Firefox reopens old pages, some of which I don't need anymore, and doesn't open most of my most recent pages. I think I've clicked all the right settings, including "remember my history." Anyone know what to do? Thanks!
