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.

What *is* a container/"container tab"? (Please be consistent with the nomenclature)

Do I open tabs within these containers? I just opened a container/"container tab" and did a search from the search bar: it opened a new tab that does not appear to be contained or related to the container/"container tab" in any way. Am I supposed to be able to move tabs into these Containers? Maybe not, because sometimes they are referred to as Container Tabs themselves. Is this the desired behavior, and if so, why?

When I open Firefix, there is a white band (sometimes blue) at top of screen that hides the navigation bar. I cannot take any action except perform one search as I cannot click on the invisible back arrow, bookmarks, shrink or close the screen. I have to close the browser by right click on Firefox icon in tray and click on close.

YouTube videos worked fine before installing Adobe Flash Player. When installed the screen flickers after one second, rewinds to the beginning, then plays normally. This doesn't occur when I use Internet Explorer. I have reinstalled both Mozilla Firefox and Adobe Flash Player many times but nothing seems to work . Downgrading Adobe Flash Player didn't work either. It seems like Firefox is the problem but I'm not completely sure.

My FF was just auto updated to 18.0.1 today and now when I close FF it does not save my tabs. I have always had "When FF starts" set to "Show my windows and tabs from last time".

I saw an earlier 14.0.1 problem that said delete sessionstore.js files but when my FF is closed there is no sessionstore file in my FF Profile folder. Is that the problem? What needs fixing so I have a sessionstore file across sessions?

Thanks.

Camera not authorized. Please check your media permissions settings.

There have been times where it let me through and I was able to test it but more often it refuses. Also have the same problem

using Facebook. When I switch over to Chrome browser I don't have any problems which leads me to believe the problem is with

Firefox. I've seen other people mentioning this but I didn't see any resolutions

Since this new version got updated without my consent, i have lost my add-ons which annoys me greatly.

I am getting pop-up adds again, where as the version i was running previously they did not show up.

I had my old version customised just the way i like it, and i want it back. I am unphased about "bugs, glitches and security issues" as i trust my anti-virus to do its job. I would just like the version i had back the way i had it. This new version is not good and looks like google chrome, and if i wanted chrome, i would download it

I installed the Anti-virus program AVG not too long ago. When I open up Firefox (I have the default homepage, the one with a search bar under the Firefox symbol) and search with the search bar, It uses AVG Secure Search. I would like it to search with Google. I tried installing and then uninstalling AVG Secure Search, that didn't work. I even tried uninstalling AVG itself, but when I clicked uninstall nothing happens. But I'd like to solve my searching problem first. Please help me!

In my company's internet it is problematic to use https. However firefox always defaults to https connections (e.g. when making a google search from the search toolbar, or when typing an address bar starting with "www"); therefore always bringing up an "This Connection is Untrusted" alert page and making me have to manually go to the address bar and changing the "https" to "http". In Google Chrome and Internet Explorer it is very easy to set the browser to use http instead of https. However, I can't seem to find this option in firefox. Any ideas?

It constantly bothers me and it happens frequently and randomly. It happens and then go away after a short amount of time. If I add an exception, I can't access google at all and will always be re-directed to facebook. I don't know how to fix this stupid error.

It was working perfect two days ago. Now I can't download anything with realplayer.Sometimes nothing happens when I click on "download video", other times it acts like it is downloading but at an accelerated speed but when I try to play it all I have is a black screen. Videos that I downloaded previously still play normally. I keep my cache and cookies cleared out constantly with Ccleaner.

I checked the forum for a solution and it said to disable RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin. but I can't find one with that exact name. I searched for that add-on/extension at Firefox and I can't find one with that particular name there either! So, what next? I tried to copy and paste the video URL into the realplayer new file box per realplayer help but that fails also. (it appears to download but all I get is a black screen during playback, no video or audio.) HELP!!

I have been using firefox and sync for a while now but some time ago I noticed my bookmarks didn't sync from one pc to another anymore. I thought by upgrading to the latest firefox, 29, and new sync that the problem would be solved, but it wasn't.

It seems that when I setup my account and I click the sync button, every time the arrows keep on turning blue but nothing happens and none of the pc's are in sync.

I've been searching mozilla support and been googeling my problems for the last few days but haven't found a solution yet.

Any help would be much apreciated!
