Before the update everything was working fine, but yesterday after the update I noticed that whenever I open a page and after that I hit back button, it doesn't reload the page like before. It's annoying, because I use forum and sometimes is confusing when I open a thread and after that it still says that "new thing", the only way to remove it is to reload the page from the refresh button.

I have problem accessing SSL client auth protected websites.

Security module is succesfully loaded, Login via Security module is OK and I can see certificates from SmartCard in Firefox "Your Certificates" tab. When I navigate to SSL protected website Firefox does not open pop-up certificate dialog with my certificates list and I can't login to website.

I also try not to login via Security module directly and then, when I came to website, Firefox detect SSL client Auth request from website and backend middleware raise pop-up pin dialog. Again, I have logged in successfully into smartcard via middleware, certificates are loaded in "Your certificates" tab but Firefox does not opening certificate dialog.

Middleware is ActivClient 6.2 and Firefox version is 25. I also try with different Firefox/ActivClient version combination but same problem still exists.

Also, Firefox on Linux works ok (combination with Coolkey). I also try Coolkey and Firefox on Windows OS and also working.

Problem exists only with Firefox/ActivClient combination.

Does anybody have solution for this problem?

Thnx...

Seems that my Video Download Helper as well as Download Flash and Video add-ons on my PC have suddenly stopped working this past week (Jan 2014). Did Youtube suddenly block downloading of *ALL* their videos? I knew they stopped VEVO vids from downloading a while back, but the regular FLV and MP4 videos just all of a sudden stopped appearing in VDH's and DF&V's menus about a week ago. The icons for each of them up in my toolbar also stopped lighting up when the videos play on screen, like neither program can detect the videos anymore to download them. I looked thru the topics listed here on this help site as well as Google Search and there's nothing about Youtube/Google blocking the downloads, only some mention that Youtube might be about to institute a system where you have to start paying to save their videos a year ago. Does anyone know for sure? I'm using FF 26 with the latest versions of both downloading programs (installed back in November). Videos were downloading fine until about a week ago. Thanks.

There appears to be a common problem with the latest versions of FF (26/27) entering text into text boxes (like this one). Email (yahoo) is particularly frustrating.

The probelm is most appearent using the cursors to navigate around existing text. If I hold down the right or left arrow the speed at which the cursor moves is frustratingly slow and the CPU use goes to 100%. I don't get any of these problems with Chrome/ IE or Opera.

I've tried all of the normally reset firefox, hardware acceleration on/off, safe mode. None makes much difference. The problem does not appear to be present on Linux.

I'm running Win XP SP3 Home. Generally well patched and maintained and I don't generally have any performance problems.

How to completely disable Tab Groups?

I don't use Tab Groups and have no need for them. I didn't even know they existed until my tabs starting disappearing.

When I close all tabs I get to the Tabs Group screen. Pressing the Tab Group button doesn't work at all. There I find my missing tabs. When I try to open them they don't open. They start to expand to full screen, but never get there. They just return to the small Tab Group size. I have to close Firefox and start all over.

I have no idea what causes my tabs to go into a new Tab Group, but it happens a lot. When I hit the '+' ("Open a new tab" button) sometimes the new tab is now my only tab and all my other tabs are in a Tab Group that I cannot access. It also happens when I switch to a different tab. I click on the tab and suddenly its my only tab. All others have been grouped and lost since my tab groups will not open.

I would like to completely disable Tab Groups. It's a feature that only causes me frustration.

I live in Warrington, PA, zip code 18976. However, for some reason, Firefox apparently passes to other sites an address for me which is near Bethlehem or Allentown, PA, which are about 50 miles north of where I live. The result is whenever a website I've selected presents a map or directions, it always provides (for example) store locations in the Bethlehem - Allentown area, not in the area where I live. This problem has existed ever since I began using Firefox, at least 3 or 4 years ago. It's getting a little tiresome.

I have tried without success to find where this incorrect address is stored in Firefox, but without success. My ISP is Verizon.

Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks.

Firefox 29 (and now 29.0.1). First -- I have QuickProxy 2009.07.19 as an Add-On but its button/icon is nowhere. Not in Customize so cannot move it onto the Toolbar (or whatever the toolbar is called these days). So where is QuickProxy's button/icon?

The above is the "important" question.

Second -- the Add-On icons I do have are spread out a bit too much so they cramp the URL window to the left. (Icons only - no text.) Must they be so spread out?

Thanks.

Today I had problems printing a shipping label so the customer service rep told me to clear my cache history. I dont know if my problem is related to this but earlier I accessed a website and after this I could not. I kept getting the error:

The connection has timed out

The server at www. .com is taking too long to respond.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   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.

its weird beacause the url goes blank

I tryed restore it cannot restore I tryed another browser and it could not get site. I tryed other sites and they load fine..

What can I do ?

Passwords get saved without asking for option if I do want to save the password for this site or not. So passwords for sites that I dont want saved are saved.

I am using Firefox version 28. I have ticked the option to save passwords and am using a Master password to save and protect all passwords. Of late, I have noticed that whenever a site is opened and a password is input, Firefox just saves it, without giving me the popup option of ** IF I WANT TO SAVE THE PASSWORD FOR THIS SITE OR NOT**. This is proving to be a big problem because there are sites where I do not want the passwords to be saved but since I do not get the popup option, the password get saved. I would appreciate your help in this regard.

I'm not sure why but Firefox seems really laggy recently. I tried resetting it and it didn't help. I scanned for viruses and malware but found none. Firefox is up to date. I did have this SelectionLink thing installed without me knowing but I uninstalled it. It seems to just be the Firefox browser so it's my connection. Is anyone else having this problem?

I have an issue with "save as". Can't download whenever I want to choose where to copy something (plus a few other related bugs). Seems not to work when an explorer window is supposed to pop up. I found in FF troubleshooting, that the following 3 files were missing in my "about:config": browser.download.dir browser.download.downloadDir browser.download.lastDir My question is how can I enter them properly? Hoping that's the cause for this issue.
