Why doesn't Firefox 26.0 doesn't show my downloads anymore!!!!

In the last version of firefox 25.0.1 still showed the download window when using downloadhelper, now in version 26.0 I no longer see the download box. When I go to about:config my setting are as they were in version 25.0.1 but there is still no download box opening. Will this issue be fixed and or will I need will downgrade to version 25.0.1.????

Updated to FF26 earlier today. I just now noticed that the download manager is different, rather, it is the new version that has been available for a while. I have been using the older toolkit that was available in earlier versions through about:config and enabling the toolkit option. That option is still checked as true but the toolkit remains the same (the newer version).

How can I revert to the older download toolkit without restoring to an earlier version?

Why do I constantly have to worry about one of your updates ruining something I want to use.

I am beginning to hate software developers at Microsoft, Adobe, Java, and now Mozilla.

And please explain why incompatible extensions cannot be removed? I want to hear this one.

Firefox upgraded today and now Norton Identity Safe (Norton toolbar) no longer works. I have spent several hours moving bookmarks to I.E., because Norton works there. I prefer Firefox, oh well, "Que sera, sera".

I have the new version 26 on two desktops and another laptop and this option of tabs on top (or, as I prefer it, unchecked so that the tabs are on the bottom). But my new laptop, with FireFox 26 just downloaded, does not have this option - so I'm stuck with tabs on top instead of being able to put them on the bottom. Why does it show up on three other computers but not on my new laptop (Windows 7)?

Alice: I just sent you an update regarding Better Surf Plus 1.1. That is indeed the full name of this updated version of this malware program. Please block it in Firefox to prevent so many thousands of other users from losing their time trying to figure out how to solve the bug or problem with their computers. I also removed it from my internet explorer as per your advice on how to remove Better Surf.

PS: I tried to reply to an email from you, but postmaster@mail.hotmail.com says: "Delivery to the following recipients has been delayed. notifications@support.mozilla.org" So, I'm writing this email to yu in Firefox. Hope this helps.

1) press: Ctrl+Shift+Del to go to History cleaning. 2) select timeframe: all 3) mark: Cookies, Browser Cache, Active Logins, Offline Data, Site Settings. (you can also mark Search History but it is not neccessary) 4) press: Clear button.

It solved the problem of downloading 0kb files instead of YouTube videos.

(with Firefox 25.0, DownloadHelper 4.9.21)

Update for Windows Security updates (running vista ) would not allow Firefox or IE to access internet but Thunderbird Ok . Could access internet in Safe mode through both IE and Firefox. and Thunderbird. On driver list Consumer IR device driver had yelow triangle exclamation. After some research removed a series of updates KB 2887069, KB 2893294, KB 2898785, KB 2892075, KB 2893984, KB 2901674. all from 13/12/13. This allowed the system to access internet, updates then reinstalled failed to access internet. So removed only KB 2887069 then system again accessed internet.

Is this now ok or will there be a security problem as update is not in place??

In the latest version (26) the classic download window has vanished. In a previous update (21? or there abouts) the downloads window vanished and your downloads goes to the top of the firefox window where the upside down arrow is.

However after abit of research I found out that by going to about:config and changing the Boolean pref browser.download.useToolkitUI to true and I went to check just now and it's still set to true but I still don't have the downloads window. I don't like the horrible new way for downloads because you have to keep the browser open to keep the download from running which I don't like. Classic is ALWAYS best.

It happens every time at first boot of system. I open Speedfan and then Firefox. Even if I don't open Speedfan, 20 or so seconds later Firefox shuts down. No crash report is generated. I have already tried a clean uninstall and reinstall. After the first crash it works fine on second restart.

This is a continuing problem that Firefox has had almost since it's inception. I have used it for years and this continues with every update, regardless of all the Mozilla assurances that it has FINALLY fixed the memory leak issue. It is now using almost 1G every time I use it. I DO NOT WANT TO USE FIREFOX IN SAFE MODE OR WITHOUT THE ADDONS! That is the main point of using this browser in the first place and if I have to use it without all of it's functions, why use it at all?! I have been loyal but your continuing pattern of ignoring or pretending to fix this issue shows a complete lack of concern or respect for your customers. Fix it or I am gone.


Anyone with a problem

Please update to the latest version of Firefox.
If you need help OR insist on using an older version of Firefox please see my post under
Thank you
