As soon as Firefox when through it's automatic "upgrade" the scroll action became very slow and sluggish. I've tried everything suggested (disable plug ins, re-installing Firefox, rebooting computer etc) but I still can't get it back to the way it was. Is there any fix, or how can I re-install the old version that worked so well? I HATE THIS!!!

If your only solution is to tell me to: 1.Restart my computer 2.Start Firefox in safemode 3.Use another hotkey to open a new tab that's not middle mouse button.

Then don't even bother replying. As I've done the first two and it made no difference and 3rd option is a solution at all.

This is frustrating and I'm slightly upset that after reading 20+ Pages of the same problem dating back from 2011 that there are no answers.

I am on a fresh install Windows XP (Yes I know old school) with firefox version 27.0.1.

Why has the function of my up & down arrow keys changed? Did I click something by accident? Help please?

(My new kitten *might* have stood on something on my keyboard - she's done that before & put Full Screen mode on, but I managed to fix that)

Normally, I scroll down a web page a bit at a time using the down arrow key on my laptop keyboard. Since yesterday, when I press the down arrow, the page jumps to the bottom (like pressing PageDown would do) and the up arrow jumps all the way back up.

How do I set it back so that it scrolls a bit whilst I press the key?

It is quite a common event to send friends a lead into a web address for interesting articles or videos (Youtube urls). To do thjis means you do a copy and paste into the Email. When I was using Aol the address presented itself in bold type which allowed the recipient to just click on the address to be connected instead of doing a copy and paste into the address bar. Is there a way this can be done in Firefox?

hw acer atom cpu n270 1,6ghz 1gbram

sw os microsoft xp sp3 v2002 ff v16.0.2 (not upgradable not to v18 nor v20) several plugins (few classics, see below) and addtional components (noscript, etc.)

problems 1)can't upgrade from v16 to v18 or any other higher version; downloading and installing v18 and restarting ff does not make any change, if not resetting all options and settings; i've tried several times within months; 2) although automatic check of new versions is unticked, at launching it often starts in default modus (all resets, history deleted, default starting page, etc.) as if made an autonomous upgrade/renewal to a higher version;

couldn't find any literature or contribution, if not the one of v12-13 for xp sp1 or 2;

theory could it be that ff 16.0.2 is the real last working version for ms xp sp3?

solution what are the solutions? if above mentioned theory is true, what can i do? at what stage is ff OS?

thanks to all foxes

Hello. I'll have to apologise in advance because I'm not very technical! We have Mozilla Firefox and for a while now websites have not been showing correctly. To try to explain, the pages are always white with a basic font in black. Some pages also have black lines through text. Some graphics are not showing such as for example the google logo on google.com/co.uk and others such as the 'add to basket' on amazon (that type of graphic) Photos seem to be showing. Nothing is displaying quite right in terms of position on page etc. Can anybody help me solve this problem? I have searched online for hours on end to no avail, contacted internet provider with no response, cleared the cache, uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, cleared all cookies, checked page style is correct, checked Javascript is working correctly, disabled anti-viral software to see if that was the cause...none of which have had any effect at all. Anybody any ideas? Regards, Sarah

I just installed a fresh windows xp on my pc and I'm using the latest FF 26.0,but from the start i cant get to some pages,like in youtube,some pages doesnt come up and i get the "This connection is untrusted" page,in the technical details it says "youtube.com uses an invalid security certificate,the certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain is provided.(Error code:sec_error_unknown_issuer). also when i open FF add-ons manager tab Extensions,Appearance,Plugins and Services are ok but the Get Add-ons tab is not working,i get the same page as i stated above with the same technical details (instead of youtube.com it's services.addons.mozilla.org) and same error. I've tried all solutions on the web and on this forum like reset FF, adjust time & date, using the "Skip cert error" add-on, deleting the cert8.db file, and so on - none of them helped me with this problem. If it helps i use Avast! antivirus and window firewall,no other software on that pc. I'm pretty clueless about what else i can do,any suggestion that might help? Thanks!

Since the most recent Firefox-Update I am permanently kidnapped by the a "smartsuggestor" function, which takes me - without asking - EVERY TIME WHEN I CLICK A LINK IN ANY WEBSITE away from my target to SPONSORED LINKS, - and this happens even while I am password protected customer websites.This is more than annoying, but .... it doesn't happen when I'm using Opera. But I would love to stay with FIREFOX. Therefore I deactivated selectively (=set after set of) - finally - all of my addons. The same I did with my "Erweiterungen" (in English it probably is called "extensions" ) of Firefox. Nothing helped, nothing is protecting me from being taken away from the target of my "click". PLEASE help me out of this horrible problem. My German Firefox version is 15.0.1. - the XP-edition is most up-to-date.

After I uninstalled Firefox, all icons returned to usual PDF icons and files were identified as "PDF" files, but when I installed Firefox (31.0) again, all PDF files again are identified as "Firefox HTML document". Extensions do not change, they are always .pdf, and files automatically open in Adobe Acrobat, but icons became "firefox HTML documents" icons and it is very confusing.
