This is the issue that I'm having. I'm not sure if this is something that's updated with Firefox or not.

Normally when I would save a picture, for example, my downloads window would pop up to the left of my screen, and show all the most recent downloads. I only just noticed today that there's a little downwards pointing arrow right next to my home button. When I save or download something to my computer, it goes through the arrow, and the downloads box doesn't look the way that I'm familiar with it looking.

This is what I'm talking about with the arrow http://i1011.photobucket.com/albums/af233/Bat_Spork/Arrow.png

Is there a way to change that? Is this something new with Firefox?

Hi folks, I've been having this problem for a while. I have a habit of opening firefox then just leaving it open. When I do eventually close it I would say 9/10 times it crashes with the below error from windows.

note: these crashes do not appear in the about:crashes section. At one point I found instructions on how to use a debugger to try and gather information but it seems those instructions are out of date. In addition I'm not even sure it would work as the crashes only happen when I close firefox (x out). I haven't tried to run in safe mode (yes i know) because it would mean running "naked" for 12+ hours on various sites. I have however at one point tried removing all add-ons just to rule those out. any ideas what could be causing this?

I should note that this does not happen if I don't leave firefox open for long periods of time.

So Firefox updated tonight unfortunately, even though I thought I had turned that off, and I'm having massive issues. It took about two hours for me to just get my shortcut keys working again and if I right click to "Open in a New Tab" there is no responsive activity from FF. If I right click on anything (on that MASSIVE menu, btw - really? I don't need all of that!) none of it is working. And any tabs I now manage to get open using my restored shortcut keys go unresponsive.

I've tried re-starting w/o add-ons, but nothing changed. And I'm not restoring to a default of 20.0.1 - at that point I'll scrap this update and go back to my preferred v.19 as of January.

I've just updated to 20.0.1 from 19.0.2 and suddenly, the speed of my mouse scrolling has decreased dramatically. When I tried other browsers, it was usual/normal speed but for firefox, it was very slow (i.e around 5+ lines decreased).

I have looked at one of the recent post about this problem (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/948356?esab=a&s=mouse+wheel+scroll&r=0&as=s) however, even setting mousewheel.enable_pixel_scrolling to "false", it didn't revert back to normal/usual speed.

FYI, this is without smooth scrolling. I don't use this feature due to personal preference.

Help would be appreciate it.

Can I go back to an older version of FF? I really do not want to choose. Will that problem be fixed in FF 21? I really love Firefox, it has always been my favorite browser - but giving up the Personas will be hard and I don't understand why I have to...

How do I reinstall an older version of FF? Is there another solution?

Hi there,

So whenever I open a link to my grocer (Loblaws), or certain links from my Outlook (formerly Hotmail) inbox (I've included a link from Match.com as an example), I get a grey tab.

Here's what I've tried:

- I've reset Firefox 20.1 (I'm working on Windows 7. 64 bit) - I've reinstalled java

I'm a basic user--I don't write code, or do any sort of development--and can't find a solution for this. I'm sure I'm not the only user whose doing this.

I recently uninstalled an older version of Firefox to resolve some slowness issues. I replaced it with Firefox 20 - current. Among others, I got Fireshot and IM Translator. IMT placed its icon to the right of the search bar where the Fireshot icon used to be. Now I have no Fireshot icon anywhere and must use the TOOLS drop down to access it. I would like to have icon access to Fireshot. I pulled the IMT icon down to the Add-On Bar but no Fireshot icon appeared. Please advise if I must choose between the two add-ons.

After I downloaded 20.0.1, I found that I my cursors and tab key no longer functioned within Firefox (they function everywhere else on my laptop). This wasn't a problem until the latest version, but I can't find any solution. I made sure that my Accessibility options were set to make sure my cursor keys would navigate, but it still won't work. This is more than annoying. Help?
