After opening a hacked gmail message I thought was from a friend, I got a message, "Something is not right..." and cannot open emails.

I use a MacBook Pro 10.7.5. The rest of the message read, "We're having trouble contacting our servers. We're going to keep trying." I have this problem only with Firefox… (read more)

I use a MacBook Pro 10.7.5. The rest of the message read, "We're having trouble contacting our servers. We're going to keep trying." I have this problem only with Firefox GMail. The other websites through Firefox are fine. On my iPhone, I have no problem accessing gmail. With Safari on my MacBook Pro, I have no problem accessing gmail.

I have trashed and reinstalled Firefox. I still cannot open up emails on Firefox. I prefer the Firefox interface to Safari. I am more familiar with it. If I cannot solve this, I will have to give up on Firefox.

I contacted Google. They said it was not their problem. They do not support Apple products. Apple supported me but could not solve the problem.

I do not like the aereo/transparent background on the Firefox (ver. 22) title bar, I would rather have it a solid color /opaque not transparent. I have used themes but this changed everything except the title bar. I heard there is a way to change the title bar background color without changing the overall Windows 7 theme. Appreciate any assistance with this problem. Thanks

Once again Firefox alienates users! How would it be if a housebuilder sold you a house and you could never change the initial paintjob. To have to hack the registry is not acceptable. You have one of the most configurable products out there so why the hell have you not given people a means of changing these STUPID settings. I have resisted moving to Chrome but you are forcing me to serious consider going because believe it or not, I need to be able to actually see a toolbar.

Since upgrading to the latest firefox yesterday I am unable to switch between videos on youtube, the page info changes and shows all the details on the new video, but the video itself stays as the one currently playing. I have to refresh the page before the video changes.

Also at the same time I get the following console error which repeats innumerable times

TypeError: can't access dead object chrome://clickyoutubed/content/jquery-1.10.2.min.js Line 6

I've cleared my cache but still get the problem, also I have tried running Firefox 25 in safe mode with no addons running but the problem still occurs.

Edited: Okay I risk looking a fool now, but problem solved... I had previously cleared my Cache and history etc but the glitch was still occurring, but just after posting the question decided to do it again to make sure. and the glitch is now gone. I am assuming maybe a cookie that didn't get deleted (despite having it set to clear cookies automatically on exit) was the cause of the problem.

me/ Exit stage left looking like a prat.

Once again, this morning I got a msg telling me that an update was available and asking to restart Firefox. I clicked OK. The next time I opened a new tab, malware "snapdo.com" came up in the new tab. I know how to reset the newtab preference. What I don't know is why firefox doesn't prevent this unwanted intrusion.

I have read how to remove snapdo.com entries which either tell me to use add/remove programs (it isn't in my list) or to use some software that I would prefer not to use.

What's up, Firefox? Can you fix this.

Before the update was installed I tried to help a friend with the same problem. Using firefox 24.0 I realised that by disabeling javascript in "about:config" I could turn off the "sign in" button and enabeling it let it come back. After I myself upgraded to Firefox 25.0 I had the same problem and altough javascript is enabled the button doesn't show up. This is the website I'm talking about: https://webmail.uni-erfurt.de/iwc_static/layout/login.html?lang=en&2-6.01_002019&svcs=abs,mail,calendar

After updating to Firefox 25.0, the other day, I am finding that the Status-4-Evar extension doesn't seem to be working, and by that I mean the greenbar that usually appears in the bottom right-hand corner doesn't appear when I'm navigating between pages leaving me not knowing how well a particular page is loading and simply having to guess. Surprisingly, URL's still show up in the lower left-hand corner when going over a link or clicking on it, but there is no way to determine the status when downloading a new page.

Has this happened to anyone else? Is there a way to fix this. My extensions show the plug-in activated, and it doesn't appear that Firefox has shut it down as it did with, say, the Java Deployment Toolkit.

I upgraded my Firefox to 25, from 24 I'm getting problem regarding installation of any add on. Every time I start Firefox it notify me to install the disabled plugin. I allow installation, and then restart FF, but it still stay opened and open a new tab for the same prompt. It's not just annoying, but it's not installing the add on into my FF.

I just want to DISABLE (by unchecking or sth.) the default feature into my FF. I'm a developer and aware enough what add on is running behind the scene and how to remove them.

I just upgraded to Firefox 25 on MacOS 10.6.8. When I want to do control-click stuff, like "Open Link In New Tab" or "Save Image As...", nothing whatsoever happens. I don't get a new tab, I don't get a dialog asking where to save the image, I don't get an image in a default location, nothing. This cuts me off from enough functionality that I downloaded Google Chrome to get my work done.

If I typo an url, e.g. google.cmo and immediately notice my error, press esc (stop page from loading), and type in the correct url google.com, the proper google page loads, but for whatever reason the esc press didn't actually stop the erroneous url from loading, and after the proper google.com page has fully loaded, Firefox still takes me away from google.com to google.cmo and an error page. How do I get rid of this feature, i.e. how can I make sure pages really stop from loading when I press esc?

Hi, i have two monitors. And now here is my question/problem, when i watch videos or live streams(main monitor) i usually have another page for browsing open on my 2nd monitor and i stay on that page while watching live stream at the same time. However the windows task bar wont disappear and it remains and over-laps the bottom part of my main monitor. Is there any way to change this or perhaps theres no hope?
