Recently parts of the text but not all the text on a webpage has started to blur or distort. Sometimes this distortion moves to the right. If i hover my mouse over the distortion or scroll the page it disappears. This is especially annoying on Facebook ect. I have not noticed this problem in IE or Chome but i havn't used either for prolonged periods to be honest. It's hard to test what causes it because the problem is intermittent, Facebook is affected the worst but have had this problem on other websites including this form and even in the Addon menu.

I have tried, running in safe mode, disabling plugins and clearing the cache none of which have solved the problem.

here's a screenshot of the distortion: http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/2128/facebookblur.png

i've been using Firefox since FF12 (now ff19) and every time i use a search function on a site eg winehq and select a link from the results then click on the back button i am immediately hit with the Document expired page and have to click on try again then resend regardless of the browser.sessionstore.postdata setting which is currently at -1, i have searched for an answer and it seems that many users of firefox have the same problem and all given the same answer to set the browser.sessionstore.postdata to -1 which clearly does not work. Please give us a way to turn off this annoyance.

I've have been using FF for several years. Three or 4 times during the upgrading process FF loses the open tabs and only loads with a single tab (that's fine I can reopen them). So, I've waited for the next "stable" version and then tried again until successful.

I'm currently running 19.0.2. The problem is that upgrading creates two Title Bars (right name? At the top of the brower...that shows the title of the current page) and just generally looks like if effed-up and icons are messed up, etc.

I've searched: can someone point me to the help page that addresses this issue.

Thanks! WinXP SP3, 2GB Ram

Been using Firefox for years, just started having issues with it not being able to keep my bookmarks. Tried the entire help section for this issue, but it did not fix it. So I uninstalled and reinstalled v19.0.2.

Now each time I open firefox it asks me to Choose User Profile and none of the earlier profiles are in the selection area. So I create a new profile. When I close Firefox and open Firefox again, whether or not I restart my computer, the Choose User Profile box comes up again. But the profiles are in the folder location "profiles". Any suggestions?

Periodically, Firefox 19.0.2 will completely lock up. All I can do is use Windows task manager to kill it. then Firefox will not launch again (but firefox.exe shows in task manager) until I reboot the computer.

After rebooting, the Swagbucks toolbar is gone from Firefox. It's not anywhere in the plugins or addons or anywhere to re-enable, IT'S GONE.

So I have to reinstall the toolbar, and it works until Firefox locks up and deletes it again.

P.S. Fix the scrolling to support ALL devices just like every other web browser and application. This has been broken since Firefox 4.0. I have a 4-way scroll button on my laptop (with vista Ultimate) that works with everything except Firefox. Simple fix? Use the same HID API everyone else does. Microsoft provides that so programmers (such as those who code Firefox) don't have to write their own support for everything - that's the major point of an OS like Windows.

Here's the sequence of events:

1) Start FF on my MBP (OS 10.8.2), and retina display works properly.

2) Connect my MBP to a 24" external display, which has max resolution of 1920x1200 (set as primary). FF displays nicely on external display.

3) Disconnect external display and FF is now pixelated on MBP retina. Refreshing System Dispay preferences doesn't seem to help, or I haven't found the magic technique.

4) Restart FF and all is well.

So the issue appears to be FF not recognizing the need to revert to Retina resolution.

Mail Redirect, a TB addon, recently switched to Sourceforge because MozDev was shutting down or something. However, attempting to download the latest XPI from Sourceforge (http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/mailredirect/mailredirect-0.7.7-sm%2Btb.xpi?r=http%3A%2F%2Fsourceforge.net%2Fprojects%2Fmailredirect%2F%3Fsource%3Ddirectory&ts=1370301869&use_mirror=iweb) fails, because Firefox assumes the download is supposed to be an install of a Firefox addon, and Mail Redirect's metadata is set to be incompatible with Firefox.

There is no way to override this and force an actual download; clicking "Direct Link" on the page does the same thing, and dragging either of the links to the Downloads window (Ctrl-J) downloads an HTML document with a .XPI extension, which is obviously useless. What's more, Thunderbird has no convenient way of opening arbitrary webpages.

I finally caved and used IE to download it. It took about 30 seconds.

This button just went missing all of a sudden. I now have only one tab group, and I can't reach any of the other 3 groups I had before this happened.

I tried closing and restarting Firefox, which didn't help. I tried restoring the Profile from last week. This worked at first, but then I clicked the "list all tabs" button, went to another tab group, and BINGO - lost the "list all tabs" button again!

This is extremely annoying. I am now using a restored Profile, but I cannot click the "list all tabs" button any more without losing all the tabs but the ones in the tab group I go to. So I effectively don't have tab groups any more!

Due to a legacy application, we must continue to use an old version of Reader with Firefox. Firefox 19 changes it to the built-in viewer, and once someone has upgraded, setting "pdfjs.disabled" to "true" changes the action to "Always ask" (not back to Reader). If I set it through Tools and Options, it only changes it for the current user.

I need to be able to apply to set this for all users, and preferably in a way that can be deployed to many machines.

Hello,

I have a long term, normally used instance of Firefox 19.0.2 (Windows 7).

I wanted a separate instance of Firefox. Using IE, I downloaded and saved a setup file of 19.0.2 into a specific folder, I installed it into that folder.

Upon opening it from that folder, it had the Bookmarks, etc. from the original instance. Stupidly, thinking it was a separate installation, I deleted the Bookmarks and Bookmarks from the Bookmarks Toolbar.

Is there any way to recover the Bookmarks? Where are the Bookmarks/Toolbar Bookmarks saved; and what is the file name? I have a good recovery program, Recuva, from CCleaner.

I have run a deep scan with it. There are some recoverable files. But, what am I looking for, and where/how do I insert them if recovered? Is there any hope (a gazillion folders and Bookmarks)?

Then, whether recovered or not, how do I create separate instances of Firefox, that do not share any files? I don’t mind if the add-ons/extensions, and scripts are duplicated, but I can do that separately.

Also, “firefox.exe –p”, which worked previously, now will not work. The error message is:

"Windows cannot find ‘firefox.exe’. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."

Thanks,

Steve
