At my work, I have Firefox 31.

I have a page. I want to inspect an element. No way.

There is no more inspector in Firefox 31?! Can I inspect an element? How?

By the way, "View source" has disappeared too in Firefox 31. This does not help.

Does Mozilla plan to remove all the useful features from Firefox?

Thank you.

When firefox asked if I wanted to update to the newest version, I answered NO! I had already discovered on my other computer that if I allowed the update, I would lose my ability to restore the previous session, so I wanted to save the tabs so I could reload them. I also lost all of the saved passwords on my other computer and didn't want the same thing to happen on my work computer. But despite answering NO. Firefox updated anyway, and I have lost days of work. How do I get it back? Jack

Hi all,

I just wanted to know how I can save videos from websites to my PC's HDD?

Is it possible to "verify" that the videos I download are unchanged and not altered in any way?

I'm just worried that the videos I download to my PC's HDD will be different from the videos I watch on a website? :( :( :(

Thank you!

I have tried allowing the website and clicking on the padlock and checking the allow on pop ups etc but I just can't get Firefox to attach ANY file to an e-mail. When I want to send a file I have to log out and open up Google Chrome and log in again.

save as "web page, complete" .html file disappears when overwriting file with same name

On Mac and PC using various versions of FireFox (including 29.0.1 on Win 7) the following occurs:

"Save Page As" a page with several iFrames in the content. I use "Web page, complete" and name the file.

Close FireFox. The .html file and accompanying folder are saved correctly. Then I open the file in FireFox and make some changes to fields in a form. Then "Save Page As" again and use the same name. It prompts to overwrite the existing file and I click Yes.

Three out of four times the file is no longer there. The folder remains but the .html file is gone. Not in the trash or hidden, just gone.

I know this sounds crazy but I have tested it on about 20 computers (both mac and various windows versions), all with different FF versions and different antivirus. The above scenario happens: always on 1 computer, occasionally (random) on 3, and hasn't been observed yet on the others.

Has anyone encountered this before? Are there any antivirus or malware products that could cause this? Any settings in FF that could? Any thing about this page or frames that could cause it?

Updated to Firefox v.30, now I can't attach files to my Gmail or download files from websites. The troubleshooting stuff doesn't work. What's wrong?

Shortly after my PC (WinXP SP3) auto-updated to Firefox 30, I found that I could no longer attach files to my Gmail. Clicking on the paperclip icon would make the screen blink, then nothing. No list of files, no selecting files to attach.

Further testing showed that I could no longer right-mouse click on an image and save it. The right-mouse click will bring up the menu, but when I select "Save Image As" again, the screen blinks, and nothing happens.

When I tried attaching my resume to an online application, the website's "Browse" button won't bring up a file-listing to select my resume.

I have tried all the actions suggested in similar posts: I have disabled my anti-virus, I have cleared cookies, I have reset Firefox, I have restarted my router. Nothing has fixed the issue.

I do not have this problem when using IE8

Добрый день, подскажите пожалуйста, как вернуть вид окна Fifefox, в котором основное меню с командами

 Новое окно,  
 Печать,
 Сохранить, 
     и так далее,      
вызывалось оранжевой кнопкой с надписью Firefox в левом верхнем углу экрана, 

а не кнопкой с тремя горизонтальными линиями в право верхнем углу экрана. И каким способом потом можно вернуться к новым настройкам с кнопкой с тремя горизонтальными линиями в правом верхнем углу экрана.

I have two Android tablets that are not connected to the internet (long story). I'd like to download Android Apps via my PC and copy them to my Android tablets. I do not want to use the Chrome APK extension for a variety of reasons. The apps I need are free, but without an internet connection, I can't obtain them. They are not available for direct download from the developer sites.

I've just downloaded new version of KIS - KIS 2015 - and suddenly none of the themes in firefox I had installed does not work. Instead of the theme I set up there is only this basic colour like white, orange, green, etc. What's strange, themes on the mozilla website works. When I hover my mouse over it, they change in my browser. So what's going on here? Is this KIS fault or what?

2mbps connection firefox download speed is around 80kbps but fdm download manager download speed is around 238kbps

why firefox download speed is low when comparing to others like chrome and free download manager

https://support.cdn.mozilla.net/media/uploads/images/2014-07-17-22-52-38-96cf1f.png

The same amount of size was downloaded 206kbps in FDM but firefox downloads 60 to 80kbps why

the 62mb file takes 10minute and more time to download the file i think the same as the speed to download the streaming content what do you think about it https://support.cdn.mozilla.net/media/uploads/images/2014-07-17-23-29-21-befa12.png

Adi answered Like this fdm downloads a file from several connections and later it appends all downloaded parts into one file. Therefore, it downloads a file in less time. It is controlled by servers of fdm. On the other hand, when firefox setup is downloaded by its installer ( Stub ) it is downloaded from server of Mozilla Firefox over a single connection, it does not download several parts in parallel or simultaneously. Therefore, it is downloaded at a slower rate. but why firefox doesn't offer this feature but chrome downloads 200kb why and how firefox hanging the border

Linux/Xubuntu running Firefox 29.0 and Windows 7 running Firefox 29.0.1. I have spent the past couple of hours trying to get sync to work with no luck, trying everything I could find on this site, including the links to the instructions and the troublehooting, replies to questions, and even the video.

Am I right in assuming that because the Firebox versions don't match that sync won't work? Or is there yet something else that is the reason? Or can it be done, and I just haven't figured it out?

Thanks for your help.

I am using Firefox 59.0.2 64bit. My default search engine is set to Google. When I try to do a search using either the address bar or the search bar I am always directed to Yahoo search. The default search engine does not change but I am always redirected to Yahoo. I do not have Spigot or YahooSearch on my Computer. There is nothing suspicious in my add-ons. I have removed everything from my computer that had Yahoo in it. I have run several malware programs. There is nothing unusual in the programs listed using the control panel or task manager. I have updated Windows. I am still redirected to Yahoo. Again it does not change my default search engine, but redirects it every time.

I know the preferred search engine of Firefox is Yahoo, but is not mine. If this is Firefox's way to force us to use yahoo it will be bye-bye Firefox and hello Chrome.
