Some text on different websites appear blurry or distorted since I installed Windows 8.1. Passing the mouse cursor above the text or scrolling will usually solve the problem temporarily.

I'm starting a new thread on this because it appears to be associated with the new operating system and not any newer version of Firefox.

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks.

have tried all the fixes this system could throw at me, honestly had tried 98% of them myself already, more then once. anyways my issue is this sites like CNN.com, IGN.com, mozilla.org (and some but not all related sites) will either hang and load very slowly or not at all. This issue just started out of the blue a couple days ago. i did not load any new software or patch anything as far as i know (can't speak for auto-updates) I do not have this issue in IE at all. Things i have tried to fix the situation:

1. Ran malware-bytes, spy-bot, norton anti-virus (also disabled all them to ensure no cofilicts there either)to find mal-ware or virus....nothing found

2. uninstalled firefirefox also deleted firefox folders in C:/users/(username)/appdata/local and roaming as well as from my C:/program files (x86)..I then reinstalled Firefox

3. Disabled hardware accleration and also tried it on.

4. Ran in safe mode

5. ran CCleaner

6. changed my firefox profile

7. reset firefox

8. did a system restore

9. did a registry fix check and repair

I might be forgetting a few but as i said i read ever bit this trouble shooting program threw at me and tried it. I am totally at a loss as i can usualy clear things like this up myself. I would really like to get this working and short of the very unappealing, possibly ineffectual re-installing windows, i am out of ideas.

I'm using Stylish addon for Firefox with a default dark css. I also have changed the default Window colors in Windows registry. This has changed the about:blank page's color to a dark one. But when I open a link on a new tab, before the page loads, Firefox is showing a blank page with white background. I wonder how can I change this white color to a different one.

Using FF24 for the last several days with windows 8. Today, after "upgrading" to Windows 8.1, I've lost all bookmarks. Interestingly, I also lost all my email in Thunderbird.

I've tried importing the Firefox bookmarks from a windows vista machine with no success. Tries both as an HTML file and as JSON file.

Before re-entering all the bookmarks manually, I'm hoping there is an easy solution.

Thanks

I'm observing very sluggish performance in Firefox on my Surface Pro using Windows 8.1 RTM. I can't quite track down what's going on, but some startups take as much as 10-12 seconds. Additionally, the overall browser performance is sluggish.

I've tried running in Safe Mode and it's still quite slow.

I am using Firefox stable version 24 on Windows 8.1 (RTM).

I would like to clear all cookies upon exit of Firefox, except for those sites specified in the exceptions list. When I add websites to the exceptions list they are saved until I restart firefox, at which point the exceptions list becomes empty again.

I have tried to play around with the about:permissions page, but the list of websites on the left is also empty despite me having visited numerous websites in the current browsing session.

Any help would be appreciated.

When I go to y8friv.com, a game site, many times when I click a link to a game, Firefox says "connection reset while loading" and I can't access the game. However, when I use Google Chrome, I can play games without a problem.

Also, when I use deviantart.com with Firefox, it interferes with Yahoo Messenger - makes me logout or lose service with Yahoo at times. Again, with Chrome, this is not an issue.

I've recently installed windows 8 on a VHD (my main OS is Windows 7) and I was wondering if it was possible to share the same firefox profile on both operating systems. I have the profile manager from ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/utilities/profilemanager/, but when I tried to make a new profile at the location of my main profile, it instead made a subdirectory under my main profile. Is there anything I can do to share the profile between the two? I could always use sync, but I would like to share my addons, if possible.

negotiating the screen changes just to ask a simple question took me through 9 screen changes already!!! why the "screen testing"? I am not trying to get a part in a movie. Simply, when I checked "help", "forum",and now prompted to ask this as a "new" question although I saw in forums 450 or so users complained that their FF4 was not compatible as the last version of 3 was. Without taking 6 hours of searching 25 more screen changes: simply does anyone know if this will crash/hang/send error pages or damage our PC's to have FF5 and this TM security add-on together? thank you for your consideration of my question, and I apologize if my fonts show up on your side and are bothersome. I need them for my vision impairment

How can I delete this and get back my original tab displays? I am really not too sure how this all started if i downloaded something or not. I also notice a tab will open up on it's own with a advertisement I've run CCleaner several times but nothing...

Hi,

I am unable to install extensions, they show up with "will be installed after you restart Firefox" even after I restart.

The "Staged" folder is present and remains after a restart, but the extensions do not get installed. They show in the extensions page with the "will be installed after you restart Firefox" message and remain like this no matter how many times I restart.

Any Idea's?
