Before updating to Firefox 7, I had the Ani-weather and Webmail add-ons that displayed at the bottom of the browser in the status bar. Now that status bar does not exist. When I went into the ani-weather configuration screen and set it to appear in the status bar I now get an error message stating that it couldn't put it in the location selected. What happened to the bottom status bar and how do I get it back?

As of a few days ago, almost every web site I visit, after the page opens, another screen opens with firefox asking to allow another site to open. It is an ad of some sort as I have opened 1 or 2 to check them out. I've been on a site with a catalog with multiply pages to go thru and every time I hit the next page, another pop up. I've checked off the options box to stop pop up's, but that doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Firefox ignores single click and needs double click to a single click feature like a link, a bookmark, enter a text box, push a button

Firefox 7.0.1 on Win7 pro 64

Hi FF team & community,

sometimes FF 6/7 shows a VERY strange behaviour: while doing "normal" things on websites (click links, edit text boxes, scrolling, changing tabs) FF starts to ignore my single clicks. The only way to work is using double click instead of single click (i.e. for links, enter a textbos, changing tab, even for open a Firefox menu) for ALL actions!!!!!

A minute ago, the last example was on

 https://plus.google.com/circles/find 

while moving a contact to a "circle" - FF changes to only accepting double clicks. No error, no message.

I found this buggy behaviour on many different websites - simples sites and sites with complex functionality, too - in the last weeks since FF6+7 are current versions.

With my other two questions I'm getting the idea, that current FF releases contain more bugs than releases between FF1 to FF3.

I WANT to be able to see ALL of the URL and address in the address bar! You changed it so the address is hidden or darkened without any option to see it clearly without highlighting it. Making vision impaired people blind to things such as what area of the site they are on and https:// vs http:// This is annoying and wrong. How do I change it back without a retro back to FF 3.6?

Hi everyone,

Firefox doesn't open accounts.google.com thus I can't check my emails and/or I can't use any Google Services.

I use Firefox 7.0.1. I almost tried everything on Mozilla Support pages for example http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Error%20loading%20web%20sites#w_the-problem-only-happens-with-certain-websites .

I tried with IE8 and it works.

I tried:

  • Clearing history
  • Clearing cache
  • Disabling extensions, plugins
  • Trying to open the page on safe mode
  • DNS prefetch stuff
  • Clearing cookies
  • The "tell websites I don't wanna be tracked" enabling/disabling

I really support any open source app especially Mozilla stuff, but sometimes it really gets problematic.

I'm sure you know that it's quite hard not to use any Google Service in one's daily life. So I would really appreciate any help.

Thanks

Just after updating to Firefox 7 I can no longer move around in localhost as usual. I type in an url and get a Google search instead of the page I'm looking for. How can I get the previous version back so that I can get some work done? And why are you hiding the http://? It seems to me that you might be trying to emulate Microsoft to the point of working (not working) like Microsoft.

Main page I get to.. localhost/Taste cow/

need to get to.. localhost/Taste cow/backend/

Just get Google search.

Hello.

Recently, I got infected with virus/ trojans. While cleaning the system, Win XP, I found that every time Firefox is active, there are four ports that open between my PC and the local loop back address 127.0.0.1.

Wondering if someone knows why this happens. I've also seen the same thing happen in Win 7.

I am running Firefox 7 on both Win XP and Win 7.

I also had a friend check on his system and the same occurs. Sometimes the ports are consecutive, but sometimes it skips one port, i.e: 1525, 1526, 1527, 1528.

Feel free to be as technical as you need. I have completed Computer Science degree so I am fairly used to tech lingo.

Thanks for your time.

FF7.0.1 on Win7 Pro-64 Another strange behaviour: sometimes FF stops transporting (uploading or downloading) until mouse is moved.

Very strange is, that it will do to move the mouse hovering over any FF window or FF download window, even WHILE ANOTHER (non-FF-)WINDOW IS THE ACTIVE WINDOW and in front of a FF window.

This doesn't depend on specific sites and happens on different sites. And it happens only once in a while, once-twice-three times a day.

Any idea???
