Following auto-upgrade to Firefox 14, all the Firefox user interface strings are in Times New Roman pt 8 or 9 (way too small). I cannot change them any which way, I have tried Settings, no change (including restart and reboot). I have used the Restore function. No change.

System is Windows XP Pro.

Is there a stability issue in 14.0.1?

Gave in to the "nag" screen earlier this evening and "upgraded" to Firefox 14.0.1 from 13.0.1

And since then I've had multiple "not responding" problems. Just hangs, repeatedly. Whether I'm doing anything or not. On a variety of websites - planet-f1.com, bbc.co.uk, youtube (seems worst on youtube), facebook... pretty much anything I do. It's even hung on this page once. All I get is the "circle of doom", the "not responding" top of screen, and eventually the "whitewash of death" look.

I've disabled all my add-ons (not that I had many, mainly just adblock and flash) but no avail. Cleared cache and cookies.

Seriously tempted to go back to 13! Any other ideas?

Using Yahoo Mail

When typing a response etc in Yahoo Mail the font size automatically increases after hitting enter and or backspace. font size continues to get bigger each time enter is used. This seems to have started after updating Firefox. On Yahoo mail boards some are saying this does not happen on IE.

Before upgrade to 14.01 happened, I could have any html file containing links and it would happily get imported into Firefox bookmarks.

Now Firefox is only importing html files generated through export from Firefox itself.

Any website I visit, whether for the first time or the ten thousandth, has about a 50/50 chance of rendering without any CSS. Sometimes a site will load fine, but other times it loads as a white page with a long vertical list of links, images and text, all without formatting.

I have searched and searched for solutions to this problem. I disabled all add-ons, ran Firefox in safe mode, reset Firefox, cleared the cache, cleared cookies, made sure the settings allow websites to specify their own colors and fonts. Sometimes doing these things will buy me a little peace; usually not. It's hard to say because each website has such a random chance to mess up.

Normally, I can fix the problem by hitting refresh 1-5 times. Eventually, Firefox retrieves the CSS and everything works. I recently discovered Shift + Ctrl + R for an instant fix. However, I have no way of knowing if that fixed the problem for good for that website, since the next time I visit it, it could be fine or it could mess up again.

Amazingly, I don't think Facebook has ever had this problem for me. Netflix, Gmail, random internet forums, however, all have. There's really no pattern that I can see. The only reason I even know (suspect) it's a problem with the CSS is from all the research into people with similar problems.

Currently, I have NO add-ons running.

I have not been able to have Firefox load successfully since yesterday. I have uninstalled and re-installed twice, still no luck, I ran a full virus scan and found no issues.

I have been given no crash IDs because it just freezes for minutes on end and then I force quit. I ran a defrag and freed up space on my computer hoping to fix this problem.

I love Firefox, but right now I am running Chrome becuase it is still working and so is IE so I know it is not a computer issue.

I hope this gets solved soon, I would love to get my Firefox up and running again. I can tell I am not the only person with this issue by looking at the forums.

Hi Friends, I was just updated to 14.0.1 a day or 2 ago. It seems the icons on my navigation toolbar, which used to be black, have been changed to white w/black border.

What annoys me most of all, is why in the world do you waste your time on things like that.

But the most immediate problem is that some of the icons that I have on that navigation toolbar, cannot be seen against the Persona that I use. Apparently they use some transparency. The ones that are solid white, I can still see, but those with apparently a little transparency seem to have disappeared (except on mouseover, I do see a white square).

So my question is, do I have any control over those icons? Or will my only solution be to change the persona to a darker background?

Thanks for your help :-)

I have Javascript enabled but it continually gives me this message. I followed the Safe Mode instructions and brought up FB and tried clicking on the Mafia Wars game link and still get the same message "You need Javascript enabled in your browser to use Facebook Applications." When I am on my home page of FB.com and someone posts a link to mafiawars.com, when I click on that link, it doesn't take me to that page, but gives me that message. It doesn't do it when I use Google Chrome.

I have been having hangs, Freeze ups and crashes which are way too frequent to not be some sort of bug. Based on my observation, I think it is related to Flash in some way. Heavy restart crashes are at websites which have lots of Flash items on those pages. However, not all crashes or freezes are caused by flash as I have had a crash and long term freeze at a very basic website that was pretty much nothing but text. Freeze ups are 1 to 6 minutes. Most of the time, after a freeze up I get a crash notice and button asking me to send a crash report which I always do. But the frequency of these issues is getting worse and the length of time of the freeze up or crash period where I can not click on anything or try to get back to desktop is getting longer. Need work around or something as this issue is getting out of hand.

Since I updated Firefox t0 14.0.1 I've been plagued with script issues which I've already posted but no fix so far. Now I keep received Java Script issues and can't access the page/website that needs them.

I've checked all the suggested things that could cause this issue but none of them help.

Firefox is up to date. Java is up to date. Flash is up to date.

Any suggestions for fixing this are appreciated.
