Have been emailing Fredmcd, but he has disappeared. When I click on Bookmarks goes to a dialogue box instead of actually bookmarks. Then I have to click on 'from Internet explorer." I have done 3 uninstalls 2 without personal settings, did a reset issue stays the same. very annoying. See from above FF has a LOT of dialogue box issues. Would seem this is a design issue can't get rid of. Please advise. HP says its a FF27 issue. I have Windows 8.1 which seems to have lot of compatibility issues with FF27! I have a screen shot of this issue.

thanks

The NY Times Headlines daily email always has several links to videos. They used to play automatically when selected; but for the last couple of weeks they do not. I only get the Times video frame, but the area where the video should play just remains black. I have no problem seeing videos on YouTube, Facebook, etc. I also see the Times videos when I link to them in Internet Explorer; but they will not play in Firefox. As far as I know my Flash, Java, etc. are all up to date. Please advise! Thanks.

This happens with many different sites, but only occasionally. I've reloaded Firefox, run Norton Utilities, run Malwarebyes Anti-Malware program repeatedly. The scam sites vary, phony Firefox updates, bidding sites, lots of different ones. If I wait about 30 seconds, the arrow changes back to a hand and I can click through to where I want to go. I can simply close the scam site, and the hand returns on the original site.

Help!!

Thanks.

The download process initiated from page http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ goes as far as asking whether to save but then does not save at all and goes straight to the "Thankyou for downloading . . ." webpage.

Reluctantly I tried the download with IE11.0.9600.16521 and that worked without a glitch.

Downloading the 32bit version with a Win7 laptop works fine. It also is using Firefox 27.0.1.

Restore Previous Session still works, Recently Closed Tabs works, and Recently Closed Windows is not grayed out, but it won't display the drop down list of windows. I have tried restarting Firefox in safe mode, but it made no difference, and all my settings in about:config seem to be correct.

I recently noticed that I cannot open the last closed tab (the selection is there, but is greyed out). Then, when rebooting, I notice that the system does not restore the last visited tabs - even though that selection is made in the Options.

I recently installed KeePass and it's extension in Firefox and it seems to work well (I don't actually use it often). And, recently I had a glitch where the system would resize my pages (as if I was holding the Ctrl key down while scrolling.

Several reboots fixed this issue - but now I can't resize by holding the Ctrl key and scrolling (although holding Ctrl and tapping the - key will resize the window).

Any ideas on how to fix this without a total reinstall? I've been copying my Firefox profile from one computer to another for years and am concerned about losing my saved data/preferences.

Thanks in advance!!!
