I have a sign-up form on my site. The checkboxes and radio buttons don't show up in Firefox. They do show and function in all of the other browsers I've tested. I tried unchecking the Do not Track option but that didn't change anything. The plugin developer says it's the CSS of the Wordpress theme I'm using. The theme developers don't seem to have an aswer. Doe anyone have an idea of how to get the buttons to show? Here's the site:

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

Many PDFs are only displaying images and some text using the built in viewer in Firefox 44.0.2 on A MacBook Pro running OS X 10.9.5.

This appears to be something that has only happened in the latest updates of Firefox.

Example of one that DOES NOT display well in Firefox: http://mediad.publicbroadcasting.net/p/kplu/files/201602/save-kplu-ambassador-kit.pdf

Another random of a .pdf that does not display well in Firefox 44 (but used to): http://www.insurance.wa.gov/oicfiles/orders/2011orders/11-0143.pdf

I'm using a 2010 Mac OSX 10.9.4 Mavericks, I just updated Firefox and when I try to search for a word on a tab with Cmd +F (would be Ctl +F on Windows) nothing comes up. Other areas have said to use F3 now, but that doesn't work either, and neither does fn+F3. I don't want to download an app to fix this because they all seem to be large and bulky to use, rather than the small bar at the bottom, which I liked.

EVERY website I click on give me back this Error page on my Mac Book Pro:

Server not found

Firefox can't find the server at www.weather.com.

   Check the address for typing errors such as ww.example.com instead of www.example.com
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Firefox 36 now insists I use Yahoo search by constantly changing my default search engine choice. No matter now many times I set it for Google, I'll search for something and it's Yahoo again. I've unchecked Yahoo in the search preferences, hoping it won't show up again. Have restarted Firefox several times. No luck.

Is my last resort to REMOVE Yahoo search from my list of search engines to keep this from happening? I MIGHT want to use it sometime later, but not every day.

ALSO. If this matters, When I populated this question with "installed plugins" information about my Mac and Firefox, a blank one appeared, so I went to tools > add-ons. That screen appeared for a second and instantly blipped away to another screen: DNS Yahoo Error Handler that had "developer garmin communicator plugin icon" filled in in the search request area. My web experience is being taken over by Yahoo now?

Basically, I assume when you go into full screen mode, the tabs and search bar should autohide until I move my mouse over the top of the screen right? Well, this doesn't happen despite trying the suggestions on other threads e.g. right click on empty space next to tabs and check hide toolbars (already checked on) and going to about:config and checking that browser.fullscreen.autohide is set to true.

However, I do have two other options that I think might be a clue as to the problem. There is an extensions.browser.fullscreen.autohide that is set to TRUE and extensions.fullscreen.noautohide set to FALSE.

Is there an extension or add-on I have that might be interfering? I have session manager installed...maybe that might be it?

Firefox 39 (and 38 before update) suddenly refuses to load one website: after input of username and password, it refuses to go further on Chase.com. There is no error message. It is simply a completely blank page. FF does not even appear to attempt loading the page as there is on loading indicator.

This is on two Macs: iMac with Mac OS 10.9.5 and Macbook Pro OS 10.10.4. Current FF version: 39 (but started with v.38).

Have done all the troubleshooting from FF website including a complete reset, restart, checking Network settings, and every other suggestion under "some websites do not load".

Have spent an hour with Chase support including (again) clearing all cache, cookies, history, reset Firefox, and attempting to login with temporary identification codes; sometimes I get to the next page to enter that code, but the following page is - again - completely blank or, I am not even able to enter the code as I wind up with a completely blank page. No error message at all.

There is no malware evident. There is no AV software installed (it's a Mac!). There is no problem with any other website, including other financial sites requiring logins. And, there is no problem loading that website with Safari, so it does appear to be an FF problem.

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.

The title says it all. I have the problem, it seems to go away, then it comes up again, and again, and again, and now it's here and seems to be here to stay. I have experienced this with generations of Macs and operating systems. I am currently running a very recent OS and the most recent Firefox. And, yes, I tried the about:config thing. It didn't work either. My preferences for this functionality were enabled. This cannot be rocket science people. I wish that you would just fix it, permanently. I am tired of transferring to Safari just to paste a block of text or a hyperlink into a Yahoo email! Thanks. I am still a supporter, and have been since 1996, in the days of Mac Mozaic! Richard S.

The exisiting thread on this topic is next to worthless. Has a whole bunch of unrelated "try this " stuff. Then there is a suggestion that sounds promising (tablet versus desktop mode) but no indication on how to switch between the two. If I can prevent this firefox window from hijacking my screen I may stay with it, but I am dissapointed the default seems to violate apple UI guidelines and also seems to be hard to change (e.g "act like a normal window" should be a prominent option in preferences.

I have contacted Home Depot and they say all is good. I used my iPod which has web capabilities and it can connect to both of those websites. The new version of Firefox must have some kind of security I need to change. Please help.
