I've read the other post regarding creating network.security.ports.banned.override and adding the ports I need, but it didn't work for me. I'm trying to browse to a website using a tomcat instance on port 8080.

When I go to "Tools" / "Plug-Ins" and click on "Check To see If Plugins Are Up To Date" it goes to Mozilla Check Your Plugin Page, but fails to show plugins or checked plugins update status. I am using OS X 10.10.2 / Firefox 35.0.1 / February-7-2015

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_campaign=plugincheck-update

Tried, re-installing over original, clearing cookies, clearing cache and starting in Safe Mode to no avail. Mozilla has gone of track once again. Situations like this are among the causes for Firefox rapidly losing Browser share. Another ridiculous oversight and there's never any support for when things do go awry. No professional concern, with a competent cause and cure. none.

Ironically the "check to see if your plugins are up to date" web site loads the plugins and their update status in Safari and Chromium. But still does not show the plugins or their update status when loaded in Firefox 35.0.1 on OS X 10.10.2.

Need info and a fix, please... Thanks! Whitebuck

Still wondering why, you're losing users

This keeps happening since I upgraded my Mac operating system to 10.10.2. If my cursor is hovering or near a link posted on a website (any website), sometimes the new page opens without a click. This is really annoying. Maybe it isn't a Foxfire issue, but I haven't noticed this when I use another browser.

Did a Firefox 'refresh" (I think that was what it was called) yesterday to clean caches and other things to speed up FF. When it was done, my bookmarks toolbar was different. All of the BMs were there, just the names were back (I had deleted them for space) and after redoing that (NBD) the icons seemed further apart than they were previously. Fewer of them fit on the screen than before.

Is there a way to alter the space between the icons?

Thanks!

Using firefox to upload files online, being this a simple pdf document or a video file, prevents me from deleting the file from my hard drive, once the process is completed. Once I quit the web browser, deleting the file is possible. It looks like firefox is keeping the link to a file in constant use even after the website at which the file was used is no longer opened. Am I missing some something in firefox's properties settings?

Firefox on mac and in fullscreen mode. Website office 365 exchange control panel or exchange 2013 control panel. When you click on something that requires a pop up box i.e. on a mailbox it opens in a new fullscreen tab and when you click okay it disables clicking on anything in firefox and will do until you force quit firefox and restart. Firefox in non fullscreen mode works okay.

Ex. this webpage http://store.starbucks.com/anniversary-sirens-tail-mug-12-fl-oz/011038078,default,pd.html will load but automatically redirect to the page that I've uploaded an image of.

In earlier versions of the browser I was able to enter a URL and the browser would take me directly to that website/server. With the current version, I do not know how to do it without getting help from one of the search engines. Is there a way to do it, or do I have to use a different browser?

I'm not sure what I can say except that I click on the Firefox icon in the dock to pull up my gmail account. It seems preferable to click on the mail icon in the dock instead. Does it really matter or not how I obtain my mail? As you can probably tell, moving info around is somewhat challenging for me and if my question is doable, that would be great. Thank you, Theresa

I was using Fire Fox version32 & decided to download version35. I created new account with user name & password, I set up background picture which is great! I could not transfer my contacts across from one to the other so I closed down to copy my contacts. When I came to start Fire Fox 35, it would not load and I thought that was a waste of time!
