Skype Click to Call 6.13.0.13771 is not compatible with FF 26.0. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Skype, as well as clearing the cache and cookies. Is this a Firefox issue? A Skype issue (which of course Skype says it's not their issue)? An issue with my hardware?

Firefox Sync not keeping devices bookmarks, ect the same.

So I have Firefox on a main O/S Windows 8.1 & a second boot Ubuntu 12.04. I've set up my sync account on Windows 8.1 & when I set it up on Ubuntu with the recovery key it will import the bookmarks, add ons, preferences ect. The problem is if I add bookmarks in Windows Firefox & then boot Ubuntu Firefox it won't change it on Ubuntu, if I add a new bookmark on Ubuntu Firefox it won't change it on Windows. They both keep their own instance of my sync but won't share it & share the changes.

Am I supposed to select a setting at the Sync Options to tell it to keep both the browsers the same & to also let each other add bookmarks? If you know what I mean ;)

In regards to browser.download.lastDir.savePerSite

It feels like this should NOT be a true / false option, but rather offer 3 options:

1) Do NOT remember 2) Remember Site/Domain (top level) 3) Remember specific server/subdomain

Firefox currently offers only 1 (false) or 3 (true), which is absolutely INSANELY annoying on sites that are powered by dozens or 100's of unique servers who's URLs are not masked.

When browser.download.lastDir.savePerSite=true, downloading a group of 10 files or images may require changing re-navigating your directory structure up to 10 times, which is just as bad / annoying as if it was set to false.

Alternately, just remembering the top level domain instead of the subdomain or server would be MUCH better in every case I've so far encountered.

Please consider changing this... !!!!

Ctrl+J now brings up the Library.

In about:config, browser.download.useToolkitUI is set to True, which was the fix for this problem in previous versions.

The Library isn't a desirable interface because:-

- takes longer to appear - no "clear downloads" button - no "pause", "stop", "refresh" button - takes up more screen space - resizing it to take up less screen space also affects how the History is viewed (History needs a big window with lots of detail, Downloads otoh needs a little window exactly like the one Mozilla has tried to get rid of).

History and Downloads and Bookmarks and Tags don't belong in a single Library any more than my bags of groceries, the street I live on, or my shopping list belong in the same physical Library.

- no download progress shown (or if it is shown it is less conspicuous) - the change was not optional, in this day and age ANY change to a UI however slight should be opted for by the user.

If I roll back to FF25, the initial install will have the "automatic update" box checked, causing it to automatically download and install FF26 before I can get to the checkbox. So it would be good to have a way of bringing back the old download window.

Hello, I will start off by admitting that this is not an issue with Firefox, or any browser for that matter. However, I am not quite sure where I can ask this at this time of night that wouldn't cost me money that I currently do not have. As of about an hour ago, this started popping up (The IDT Audio window): http://i.imgur.com/V0WpYKd.jpg?1 I have had this pop up before, and it was able to be solved, but I cannot recall how it was solved. Simply closing it doesn't work, and restarting the computer doesn't either.

So, is there anyone that knows how I can stop this from coming up again?

I tried recommendations that I understood in this forum to no avail. I tried resetting Firefox. Then I uninstalled and reinstalled. It still doesn't work. It used to work all the time. Now it works once in a great while. Instead of showing as an image in the email it shows as an attachment at the top of the email with the option of slideshow. If you click on the picture it sometimes will appear, more often than not it will not. It works every time when using the Chrome browser.

I am running Firefox v26.0 and using Mac OS X v10.6.8. When I go to most webpages using Google search, more often than not the displayed text is vertically cramped, overlaid or displaced e.g., some lines of text are superimposed over others. Is this a known problem and is there a fix? Thanks!

Firefox makings 'bing' noise whenever text bubble appears or click menu items

Any time I click the menu options (File, Edit, View, etc.), or any time I hover over an item that causes a text bubble to appear (any of my tabs, any images which display text when hovered over), or any time a Firefox attempts to autocomplete a form, I hear the Window's 'bing' soundeffect. A number of 'bing' noises are also made whenever I start Firefox.

This issue began happening this morning after I updated to the latest Firefox version, 26.0, from version 25.0. Adobe Flash asked to update before this issue began and I allowed it.

I have tried booting Firefox in safemode, which stops the problem, and so I assumed an add-on of mine was not compatible and was behaving strangely. I uninstalled and went back to version 25.0 but the problem persisted.

I then uninstalled all my add-ons, but no difference was made. I then reset Firefox from the browser's Trouble Shooting section, but this did not fix my issue either.

The noise is the same one that occurs when a new window opens and prompts the user to select an option.

I have tried reinstalling Adobe Flash to no effect.

In Firefox 26, when opening / closing tabs (when having quite a few tabs open) results to text from the tabs (prob rightmost one) to overspill into the small icons beyond the tab bar (e.g. the ">", "+" icons / buttons), have not seen the problem in any versions before.

I can send a small image which illustrates the problem.
