Firefox updated last night to 11.0, and now whatever website I'm on, the writing appears as gibberish or all broken up until I mouse over it. This happens on tabs, the facebook sidebar tickers, search fields, you name it. Very strange...

Things appear fine as I type them, but after a while, I will look up at a tab or search field, and the writing appears strangely. If I mouse over the gibberish text, it w… (read more)

I have Thunderbird 10, and wanted to sync my Thunderbird calendar with my Google calendar. I went through the steps described, only to discover that Lightning 1.2.1 cannot be installed because it is not compatible with Firefox 11. I have the Provider for Google Calendar Add-on but can't install Lightning. Please advise on what I can do. Thanks.

Firefox 11 beta is having issues loading Flash and HTML content, shows plain text instead of images

I'm not sure what is causing the problem but it has been happening since beta 10 and now its also in beta 11. Randomly when I load any web page the page is displayed in plain text leaving all the HTML or flash content blank. Yes I have the most recent version of flash installed along with Java just in case it was looking for that mess as well. Sometimes the pages load fine, and sometimes they don't, it's like playing lotto with the internet. The only fix I know of is to either keep refreshing the page and "hope" it catches it on the reload, or closing Firefox and running CCleaner. Some times FF will load some of the visual data and leave gaps but usually its just basic text mode. I'm at a loss as to whether the problem is from Firefox or my ISP being a douche, either way its annoying that Firefox is not showing internet pages like it used to.

Hate to see it happening but it looks like Firefox is on its way to being just another Internet Explorer clone (failure). Should have stayed with your original team, all the new folks you have hired are really mucking up the whole project and its goal of a free and open internet. Not to mention writing bad code and costing you money and more importantly the user base.

(Update, now it's not doing it go figure, but I'm sure it will do it again at some point, perhaps its not Firefox and something else, I'll keep my eye on it and try to report any findings)

A couple of things: 1)Scrolling on too many sites, like the NY Times has become so slow and jumpy that the sites can't really be accessed. This became much more of a problem with the last update. Safari works fine. 2)Something called "Text Enhance" has started popping up windows on seemingly random sites, like my local public library. How do I get rid of those guys? I tried their "opt out" screen, but it does not seem to do anything. Safari is no solution for this one.

This morning, when I clicked on a new tab, I got the message at the bottom. I never received this message before, but now it keeps coming up. I can type a URL and it goes to the site without any problems. What happened? What can I do to stop this message from appearing?

Firefox can't find the server at home.brandthunder.com.

 Check the address for typing errors such as
   ww.example.com instead of
   www.example.com
 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.
