On a single website (Noxxic.com) I have somehow shrunk the whole site so it is too small. Yes, the display is set to full screen. The start of the problem occurred when suddenly my mouse scroll wheel had control of the displayed information & I rolled the scroll wheel and it locked in the smaller position. I tried without luck to duplicate the situation.

I have cleared cache, cookies, and history within the application

I'm unable to correct a wrong url for my home page and have to manually use a separate bookmark that works once the home page loads. I use 3 url's total for the home page and the other 2 load properly.

I've searched for the incorrect url and find it in 'about:config at browser.startup.homepage'. I've made the correction to the url but it does not seem to save when I close out of about:config.

I've reset the home page under Tools and Options many, many times and it still doesn't change what is in 'about:config at browser.startup.homepage

I have been able to save the bookmark with the correct url in other folders.

I've had this problem for quite awhile, at least 8 months or so and keep FF up to date, currently using V33.0.2 and Win7 Home Premium SP1

I have always had Firefox pinned to my taskbar and when I open it it used to open that pinned icon. With the new upgrade it is opening a completely new icon on my taskbar, thus making it two separate icons and cluttering things up. How can I make it go back the way it was?

Recently when going to certain websites, parts of the content are not being displayed. In one case, when I go to log into a website, the user name no longer displays although I can log in. An example is this page: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/soba-noodle-salad-recipe.html. When I go to it in IE or Chrome, I can see all content. Went I go in FF, I can't see anything under "ingredients" or "Directions" except dotted lines where text should be. Screen shots are available. I have gone through the steps of disabling add ons/extensions and even reset FF (losing some extensions that I can't find now lol) but nothing. Everything is up to date as well. Any ideas?

Some websites display no text at all. This is unlike earlier reports (e.g. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1011611?esab=a&as=aaq) where there was some text. There is also no text in the tabs, menu bar or search box.

I am on Windows, and everything was fine before the Firefox update.

I have tried disabling and reenabling hardware acceleration. Other programs are handling fonts without issue.

This reminds me of a bug I reported back with Firefox 4, I think, where there were issues with font formats. However, as far as I can make out, it’s OpenType and TrueType fonts that aren’t appearing, whereas that time it was an issue with Postscript Type 1.

One of the sites with no text is Facebook.

This appears to be happening only on Windows, not on Mac. I haven’t checked on Ubuntu yet.

Hello:

Was having some odd behaviors with FF and private browsing and download history, so I attempted to do a "reset Firefox". It says it reset successfully. Once I restarted FF, it loads the program, and displays the standard FF page. If I type in a URL or use a bookmark, it attempts to load the page, and then immediately crashes within less than a second. Tried it with a ton of different sites.

Environment is as follows: OSX 10.10 (Yosemite) with all current updates. Macbook Pro Retina 15", Late 2013 (13,1) Firefox 33.0.2

I tried completely removing FF from my machine, including deleting the app itself, the plist files in the Library and the Application Support Folders. Tried deleting my profile folder as well. Installed fresh from Mozilla download site.

I created a second user on my Mac, and FF works as expected for that user. Problem seems isolated to my normal user account.

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you for your time.

How do I put ONLY 9 tabs, NOT 15, on the New Tab Page? (First off...please don't read this as being written by an angry person. I am simply frustrated with the browser I have loved for years. Hopefully SOMEONE can help me) For a very long time, I have had my Firefox (version 33.0.2 - although I don't recall getting any "update" notices) set so that whenever I clicked the New Tab "+" symbol to create a new tab (which has the "New Tab Page" on it), my NINE thumbnails would be shown for my SELECTED, and PINNED sites. I LOVED IT! Yesterday I opened Firefox and NOW when I click the "+" to open the New Tab Page...FIFTEEN thumbnails appear, 5wide x 3down, (and to be honest I PROBably would have gotten used to 15! ha). Here's the BIG ISSUE: NONE of the thumbnails are "pinnable". They ALL have the yellow "unpinned" icon in the top-left, and clicking does nothing to remedy this of course. Other than THAT, everything else behaves normally. (ie moving thumbnails, deleting them, swapping them....I just can't PIN them!) ULTIMATELY I would prefer my 9-pinnable thumbnails back on the New Tab Page. I have gone through EVERY option Sideways, upside-down and backwards, and I just get more frustrated. Can ANYBODY help me?

Windows 7. I cannot find a way to get rid of the AOL toolbar. It does not appear in Add Ons or as a toolbar or in my windows program list or anywhere else. Every time i open an empty new tab it opens in AOL. I cannot find how I got to a firefox version called "33.0.2 Mozilla Firefox with AOL Toolbar aol -2.2" or how to get rid of this version or its bad behavior.

A fix is appreciated AND a warning how this can be stopped in the future

I recently started getting the message: “Although this page is encrypted, the information you have entered is to be sent over an unencrypted connection and could easily be read by a third party. “ with the options of “Continue” or “Cancel”.

1. I have accessed this site for years (a bank), and the bookmarked address is secured - https: 2. The bank tells me they have made no changes to the site and that the link is secure, and when I go through their public site to login, no warning message is displayed; 3. This is the only site that I have gotten this warning on; 4. FF takes me to the page with the data anyway, but I am forced to choose an option to clear the warning message; 5. I have marked the site as a trusted site in XP Internet Security Settings: 6. In FF about:config the setting is security.warn_viewing_mixed;false; 7. I do not get any warning accessing the same site with IE 8; 8. I am using FF 30.0.2 and Windows XP

Is this a bug? How can I stop it?

Whenever I upgrade Firefox from version 32, the radio buttons in far upper right corner for "minimize, change window size, and close", disappear. They'll appear momentarily, and then they're gone. If I downgrade back to version 32, I get them back, so I've been keeping version 32 just for this reason. Was wondering why they're disappearing in version 33!

Thanks

Good evening,

Recently I'm facing a lot of firefox rapid crashing and I went through all trouble shooting steps, till I reached (disabling addon-per-time, plugin-per-time) step.

The problem had been almost solved when I picked (ask to activate, NOT always activate) option for flash player, which is the latest version of flash player.

I'm not sure if it is about the flash player itself, or is it some sort on conflict between flash player and some other addon/plugin which kept causing this issue.

My windows is 8.1, free of viruses system, fully updated and the hardware is fully functional with no glitches.

My question is: anyone have an idea about if it is might be a conflict between flash player and another addon/plugin which is causing this problem? or is it all about flash player it self? *


  • As far as I know the list of addons/plugins has been attached with this report, which can be reviewed.


Thank you guys in advance for taking time to look into this issue..
