When I boot my computer lately,about three of my favourite FF (ver 33.1.1) add-ons are no longer installed.These include Lazarus,X-notifier,and Theme Font and Size Changer.I can reinstall them manually,but it is becoming a pain to do so.I find that when I DO reinstall,the add-ons seem to remember my previous settings,such as X-notifier,which still has my Hotmail accounts and passwords when I reinstall it. Please advise,thanks!

I was trying to add an entry to my bookmarks.The drop down list of my many bookmarks appeared. I scrolled upwards with the arrow at the right hand side to find the folder where I wanted to save the bookmark. Suddenly, the 'screen' of bookmarking changed. Now when I try to bookmark all I see , when I click the 'down' arrow are

Bookmarks Toolbar Bookmarks Menu Unsorted Bookmarks

Sometimes, when I try to bookmark, I also see a few unrelated folders,but I cannot scroll these either.

The issue occured two days ago. After updating to Firefox 33.1, most of my extensions have dissappeared. List of extensions: NoScript, Adblock plus, Adblock plus pop-up addon, Element hiding helper for Adblock plus, Multirow bookmarks toolbar, X-notifier, WOT, VKfox, вконтакте.ру downloader, Avast (switched off), Epubreader, Add to search bar.

My antivirus software: Avast 2015 free edition with all the updates.

Extensions which do not dissappear: Adblock plus, WOT, Epubreader, Avast online security (switched off).

What happens: yesterday I launched browser (Firefox 33.1) and found out that most of my extensions had dissappeared. I looked through Firefox system folders (Appdata/ and Program files/) - there were no signs of extensions, as if I had never installed them. I added them back. Surprisingly, all settings of extensions were okay. The next day this issue happened again. I thought it was some malware, so I ran antivirus checking. Avast found nothing. Next thing I thought of was: maybe Firefox does that itself? So, I installed all the extensions. Then I closed browser and immediately opened it again. Extensions were at their place. I thought that the issue was solved. Today, I switched my computer on, opened Firefox, guess what happened? Correct, no extensions (except for the four abovementioned ones). I re-installed Firefox, issue still exists. The only thing I found out - extensions dissappear with time. Today, my computer was switched on the whole day. I closed Firefox, left the computer for few hours. When I came back, there were no extensions, again.

What I am going to do now - check the system for malware again, with Dr.Web's CureIt utility. If it doesn't find anything, then, I will install the older version of Firefox and try it. Google Chrome works well, no problems with extensions (but I have only 2 installed for Chrome).

P.S. Almost forgot, bookmarks are okay, settings do not change, search engines are at their place too. But DuckDuckGo keeps appearing in list of search engines after uninstallation. So, I think that issue is in Firefox.

Under about:preferences#security, you can choose what sites can download add-ons without you needing to allow it thru the Exceptions button by Warn Me When Sites Try To Install Add-ons

The defaults are; marketplace.firefox.com and addons.mozilla.org

But every time Firefox is restarted, this list is deleted. Even resetting Firefox does not fix this. I deleted the prefs.js file, but no joy. I checked, and found this enter in the file, but it will not display when Firefox is started.

dom.mozApps.signed_apps_installable_from;https://marketplace.firefox.com

I even downgraded from Firefox 34.0.5 to 33.1.1 but the issue is still there.

As far as I can tell, this is the only setting that is having trouble.

Some of the vertical lines in the fonts are double width like a mixture of bold and normal font weight. I have hardware accellaration disabled. The problem is not fixed when I change default font settings. The problem is not resolved be resetting zoom to 0.

Inspect Element identifies the problem happens when the website selects open Sans. If I stop sites selecting fonts and force the defaults I don not get the problem. Therefore the problem is with Firefox 33.1 rendering certain fonts specified by websites.

My machine is windows vista and Open Sans is not shown in the font list. However this was not a problem with previous versions of Firefox.

I did need to do a reset of firefox parameters during the upgrade to 33 so maybe ther eis some other parameter which needs changing to help render fonts which are not loaded on the machine?

 I can't use the video controls

 I can't use the seekbar.

- http://yashry.com/search?q=iPhone

 The arrows of the price range slider don't drag. Instead, the underlying text is selected.

I tried using Firefox on a friend's Mac and it's working properly. I guess it's a problem with an entry in my about:config, but I don't even know what to search for to describe this problem.

I'm using Firefox 33.1.1 on Mac OS X 10.10.1 (14B25).

Because of an unresolved issue with my ISP and their email program (won't keep me logged in) it has been suggested that I reinstall Firefox which I think is a bit drastic. My question is this- would I be better off using the reset feature of uninstall Firefox and do a clean install? I know that either way I will have to reinstall ad ons , plug ins and probably other stuff. So if it were you which option would you take? Thanks Bob

How can I increase the button size and move it to the left of the address bar?

I am unable to stop FF from requiring the User Account Control dialog box before it will load. I uninstalled and reinstalled a clean copy, which worked the first time, and then re-established the UAC dialog on subsequent starts. This is incredibly annoying. It has never happened before with FF. How do I stop this behavior? I will stop using the damn program if this can't be fixed.

Hi,

I have FVD Speed dial and Eversync installed on my Windows 7 laptop, which I've been using for ages now and never had any problems whatsoever. One of my speed dials is for my Gmail account, but I cannot get into my email on my laptop that has Windows 8.1 installed from Firefox or Cyberfox even though I can do so without difficulty using Chrome and Opera. On this same laptop (running W8) all the rest of the speed dials are fine - it's only the Gmail one that won't work and I get the following message:

"The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

I have tried every single troubleshooting guide I can find (including going into about:config and making changes there) but to no avail and it doesn't seem (from what I've read) that anyone else has this perculiar problem that I'm experiencing.

As Gmail is one of the speed dials I use the most, it's getting really frustrating and I love this browser so don't want to have to ditch it, but if I can't get this fixed I'm afraid I'm going to have to.

Can anyone help me please?

Thanks

For several recent updates of FireFox all my ID's and passwords (saved in password manager) disappear. I have been able to retrieve them by swapping one or more of three files from a previous version ("Key3.db", "Logins.json", & "Prefs.js") UNTIL THE LAST THREE OR FOUR UPDATES. This fix no longer works and I am therefore reluctant to update any more. I would like to know... a) Has this bug been fixed? b) If it hasn't, how can I store my ID's & Passwords elsewhere so I can quickly re-install them or at least see them in a list so I can manually copy them all back in again? c) How can I stop an annoying pop-up telling me to update FireFox (other than by updating it)?

I have used FireFox happily for many years but this problem is very annoying and I am looking to change (very reluctantly) to some other browser if another update loses all ID's & Passwords and I have to re-install an older version to get them back. Please help if you can -- and thanks for considering this problem.
