Within the last few days, I have no been able to load any video at all from any site. The video first appears as a black box, then changes to a white box as if nothing is even there, and my cursor continually freaks out.

I have made a video of the issue using a screen capture program- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bQ03hbty-s

I have tried the following things with no results- Run FireFox in Safe Mode Disable all addons / extensions / themes. Load FireFox in different profiles Disable hardware acceleration Uninstall / Reinstall Firefox Virus/Malware/Spyware Scans Updated Flash / Java

I can load videos in all of my browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Opera), with no issue at all. This is heartbreaking, because I am staunch supporter and defender of Mozilla Firefox and have been a user since 2.0, and this is the first major issue I've had.

All my drop-down menus are distorted from this change, both my browser's menus and menus on websites. The distortion is so bad that I cannot read the menu or choose a selection on the menu without moving my cursor around, and sometimes not even then. The menu items appear extremely small or gigantic and the images are distorted too.

I've re-installed FF beta 26.0 just to see if that made a difference, but it didn't. I've taken screenshots of the problem and loaded then into my Goggle photo at https://plus.google.com/photos/105852729254799413734/albums/5941369764239347457?authkey=CNXwwpfOrZ-gAQ

I while ago, I was able to add tabs to my home icon so when I opened Firefox or clicked on the home icon it would automatically load those tabs. I can't seem to find out how I did that or that feature has been removed. I need to delete a tab as that site's URL has changed.

I am considering a new ISP who charges based on GB's downloaded and uploaded monthly. The base rate is for 25GB with another rate for 50GB and a third rate for unlimited GB's. Frankly I have no idea how many GB's I download and upload monthly. I wonder if there is an add-on that will keep track of bytes uploaded and downloaded in Firefox and Thunderbird and I can reset to zero at month's end. Anyone know of such a program? Thanks...

Already corresponding with Trusteer, but for your info:

Reinstalled Trusteer, yes, had re-started pc and still no difference. NB trusteer says it is running and address bar icon is set to visible.

Wonder which version of FF I should use now? Think I`d just updated it (at the suggestion of a driver tool that said my version of FF was out-of-date).

Thanks, "Lozenge"

Starting with version 25, some moron increased the leading (vertical spacing) in the Bookmarks area on the left side of the screen. Now for the first time, all the links I want displayed no longer fit on screen.

1) I tried version 26 beta, but it works the same as version 25. 2) Only the Bookmarks section of the screen is affected. 3) I have not changed my screen resolution. It remains at 1920x1200. 4) I went to about:config, searched for Bookmarks, but saw nothing related to the problem.

A lot of times while browsing firefox hangs temporarily and i get an error message which says Shockwave plugin stopped working and I can't view flash files etc,

Also, a lot of videos in youtube play choppily/jerkily. i have disabled hardware acceleration but both problems are still present. I tried playing the same set of videos on Chrome and they work perfectly so i assume it is not a hardware issue.
