So I have recently bought a new laptop with Windows 8, and I installed Firefox. For the most part it works fine but I have noticed, for some reason, some webpages do not load properly. It looks as if only the HTML of the site has loaded.

Now I can easily fix this by clearing the cache, but only for the same problem to occur a few hours later and this is really annoying me. The problem still happens in safe mode, and other browsers seem to work fine. I have also tried reinstalling but not a full reset.

Here is a link to what Facebook looks like when this happens: http://oi40.tinypic.com/2gwcbxk.jpg

Please could you help me solve this?

When I download a file, I used to get an option to "save as", instead of just save. If I download a file I like to immediately download it into the appropriate folder on my desktop (not just one folder.) Instead I have to download it, go into the downloads folder and move it. I do a lot of downloading for work and this is just an extra step that I find so annoying. Is there a way to change this, or and "add on" feature to get "save as" as an option? I get this option on Internet Explorer, but I do not like using IE :(

For a couple of days now firefox and adobe flash player/pluggin 16.0 r0 will not function properly at all. If I end up on a site like youtube or other sites with similar functions, I get bombarded repeatedly with this message and can't do anything about it. No matter which option I click to exit this box, be it the "X', "Check online for a solution and close the program" or "Close the program" the same message just pops right back up. Again and Again and Again until finally I'm fast enough to close out my tabs before the next one comes. I've attempted to remedy it by turning off the hardware acceleration but I can't actual access the control panel to turn it off without this pluggin working. I'm not sure what caused this, nor how to remedy it, I would be really grateful for some help. Hope ya'll have a good Thursday.

How do I download an XPI without Firefox trying to install it?

Mail Redirect, a TB addon, recently switched to Sourceforge because MozDev was shutting down or something. However, attempting to download the latest XPI from Sourceforge (http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/mailredirect/mailredirect-0.7.7-sm%2Btb.xpi?r=http%3A%2F%2Fsourceforge.net%2Fprojects%2Fmailredirect%2F%3Fsource%3Ddirectory&ts=1370301869&use_mirror=iweb) fails, because Firefox assumes the download is supposed to be an install of a Firefox addon, and Mail Redirect's metadata is set to be incompatible with Firefox.

There is no way to override this and force an actual download; clicking "Direct Link" on the page does the same thing, and dragging either of the links to the Downloads window (Ctrl-J) downloads an HTML document with a .XPI extension, which is obviously useless. What's more, Thunderbird has no convenient way of opening arbitrary webpages.

I finally caved and used IE to download it. It took about 30 seconds.
