I downloaded the Firefox, and it came as 64bit, but now issue is that my antivirus program, Quick Heal Internet Security's sandbox browsing does not support the Firefox's 64bit version. I don't know how but this issue occurred after recently I updated the mozilla before that sandbox browsing supported the mozilla, and from quick heal support I came to know about this 64bit issue. Now I'm looking for the 32bit version of mozilla. Please help me out. Thank you in advance. :-)

If Firefox is all about privacy, how come Firefox uses Google as default search engine? It's like trying to avoid being spied and hiring the NSA to help you.

I don't understand why Firefox hasn't chosen Duckduckgo or other instead. Makes it appear fishy to me... Unless you get money from Google...

Browser window missing top header bar

FF recently updated and when it restarted my browser window is now not showing my menu toolbar or bookmarks toolbar even though they are checked to be on. Plus the minimize/maximize buttons are overlapping my tabs at the top. It seems I'm in some different sized view or something that I cannot figure out how to get out of. I am not in "full screen" view (already tried F11 to be sure). And I've tried dragging the sides out but that doesn't fix the top min/max button issue where it overlaps and my toolbars AND my MENU bar still do not show up. I've gone into customize and removed and then re-added the "bookmarks menu" but it only shows up next to the other icons, not in the normal "toolbar" format with my folders, etc. I can view my bookmark toolbar in the SIDEBARS but again it's just the top of my screen that's messed up and I know it has something to do with my min/maximize buttons being overlapped with tabs but can't get out of it.

I've put a screenshot below to show you what I mean. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have Mozilla as my home page.. tower.. xp and this continues to interrupt Everything.. re-downloaded Firefox, but this Claro continues to reappear.. Other than annoying, I believe it to be intrusive and maybe a threat.. Do you have any suggestions about how to remove it..? I've exhausted all internet 'solutions', none of which work.. When I open the home page.. Mozilla.. I get this Claro Search.. I don't want Claro involved, I trust Mozilla. Many thanks Neal

PROBLEM: Accessing a site I've always used with ease, and siumilar others, login pages no longer show the Captcha "I'm not a robot." that uses the images "Click on the street signs", or "cars" or... etcetera. Yet, Chrome displays it fine, as does IE.

TESTS: - Tried to access with add-ons at normal. FF has, as always, has Adobe products blocked. FF refuses to let me use it anyway, refuses to let me upgrade it because the FF "Upgrade" link just opena a Moz wall of geekinese attempting to explain that FF is protecting me - but no update. I fought FF and was still able to update Adobe stuff.

- Tried with all addons disabled.

- The "About Mozilla Firefox" screen that cannot be copied and pasted here on barely visible, very light gray font "Firefox is up to date". 52.1.2 (32-bit) Apparently, it is now called Firefox ESR. What ever that means.

I've attached an image showing both versions. The working one by the Stalker - Chrome, and the one that quit by Firefox.

FF has blocked Flashplayer and Java. I have updated both to latest versions BUT Java Deployment Toolkit 8.0.510.16 11.51.2.16 is still blocked and cannot be activated (or apparently updated). The option "ask to activate" is selected but does not do anything. "You cannot UNINSTALL this program because: Why I am not able to run the Java Uninstall tool and the Java verification applet? The Java Uninstall Tool and the Java verification applet uses the Java DT to do Java version detection on the user system. If Java DT is blocked by browser (like Firefox) than these applets will not run. In order to run these applets the user will have to permit Java DT to run in browsers." https://www.java.com/en/download/faq/deployment_toolkit.xml

So, there is a Catch 22. It needs to run itself to uninstall but it can't. How can this be resolved?

As an additional comment - flash and Java run in MS IE - which is considered less secure. Mozilla are forcing people to use an inferior product. Best Regards, Chris
