Is anyone else sick of having to use 'about:config' for custom history settings??? Or hoping that Firefox will keep your history after your next update???

I remember the days when Firefox was really customizable...

You could actually select how far back FF would remember your history...I used to have nearly two years' worth of history...before the 'new and improved' system of 'rapid releases', that is.

It's not the release cycle that p****s me off, it's the little surprises that you discover later. Some of you know what I mean, the ones that the developers don't tell you about...the ones that all of the bug fixes, security patches and new features are supposed to make us overlook or forget the things that have been removed or don't work right...

Sorry, but I'm getting tired of wondering what in the hell is going to go wrong next...

I'm making myself a site, when i click to to open what will be the navigation area there is another scrolling area. when i scroll down a greyed out reflection of the top of the website appears.

at one point i even managed to get the toolbar to appear down there.

Have tested in Safari, Android and iPhone and it works perfectly. i recognize it's probably somethign in the code or js plugins im using.. but it only appears in firefox.

They are in the question. I was very pleased with the old download box, I have a mac so when I got the new update from firefox, I was very surprised to see I can't look through the old downloads and can't see the speed in which the current file is being downloaded, it doesn't make sense to cut those options off...

I used "Show package contents" to open Firefox.app, and I see a Firefox icon named "updated". Can I just delete this, or will it also remove Firefox entirely? If so, can I get my old version of Firefox back? Until I can figure out how to not install this update, I won't restart Firefox. Thanks!

Spinning beach ball FFv21, mac os 10.6.8, seizes control of my computer every 10 seconds - Im going mad!!

Duplicate see /questions/960928

Im going insane with the spinning beachball on mac when using Firefox v21.

It happens several times per minute with something as simple as choosing the next field on a page or even scrolling down the page using the scroller on the right hand of the page.

Im on a laptop which has os 10.6.8 installed and the laptop has 8gig of ram and a 2.8ghz intel core 2 duo processor.

On previous versions of Firefox I used to get "unresponsive script" warnings with the option to stop it. These warnings would pop up and never give the option to "always stop an unresponsive script AND never take total control of my computer trying to get the script to respond" There is no option to block the script on the site its coming from.

I did have a block script plug in but no sites work properly if java script isnt enabled.

With Firefox21 I dont get these pop up warnings any more.

I have a lot of tabs open and when the spinning beach ball happens too often I quit firefox and open it again. It remembers my tabs but doesnt load till I click on the tab.

Despite this Firefox will start stalling and showing the beachball spinning only after a few new pages are opened.

It is enfuriating and I dont consider the software to be working properly.

Im wondering has something gottten corrupted in the System Library when firefox installs or if there is a compatability problem with versions of Firefox, my OS10.6.8, Java, Flash?

I can only look at one tab at a time - I WOULD LOVE IF THERE WAS AN OPTION TO

"NOT GIVE ANY RESOURCES TO OTHER TABS WHICH ARENT BEING VIEWED"

I used to use a plug in called Pause All Tabs which was brilliant and gave me back control of my computer. I cant get it for FF21

So what can I do? Use Chrome instead?

Before I changed internet service providers, I could type my search queries into the url bar and receive search results from Google. After I switched ISPs, my queries typed into the url bar are put into my new ISP's horrible search engine. How do I change it back?

I've already tried going to about:config and changing the value of the keyword.URL preference to "http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=" but that didn't fix my problem.


New information since creation of the post:

My ISP is Optimum. I have opted out of DNS Assistance and still have seen no change.

When my search term is two words or more, I am directed to Google search results. If my search term is only one word, however, I am still directed to Optimum's search results.

I had asked a question of the forum about the calendar in the "new and improved" AT&T/Yahoo browser/Email system. I received two replies with suggestions for a possible fix. I notified the sender that the first one did not work and do not remember if I told the sender that the second one, also, did not work and that I was going to forgo any further discussion or attempts at remediation. I cannot find the information within the forum that I sent and what was replied.

I just got Firefox 23, and found there is no more Enable Javascript checkbox in the Content area of Preferences and there is no more ability to prevent changes to the functioning of the context menu and prevent the changing of the size or position of the window. I really do not understand why certain settings to control what may be done by web page code to the browser are being gutted out. Presumably it means that any smartass who can write a web page can force my browser window to be whatever size he wants it to be. That used to drive me crazy in the past, and it will do the same thing again. Is there any way to make a capability policy that could stop the resizing of the window? I just found out that I can still use the context menu if I use Shift-right-click. Why the change?

Autohiding the tab bar does not work any more. I thought the big argument for trying to put tabs on top and into the title bar was to save space? Forcing the tab bar to be visible all the time will certainly not save space, so why do it?

My bookmark menu was removed from the bookmarks toolbar. I tried to find a button that would put it back, and there are two bookmarks buttons in the customize window. Are the developers trying to make things harder, or what?

When I updated to Firefox 25.0.1 for Mac (running 10.6.8), it seems to have created the Yahoo Edition version of this latest update, and that's not what I want. I prefer a standard Firefox homepage and Google search. Now the "default home page" is this Yahoo configuration, and I can't seem to change it. The Preferences don't help since Restore to Default just confirms the Yahoo version, with no way to switch. What do I do to get out of this yahoo version?

I download this addon "Magic Player" but did not install it:

http://magicplayer.torrentstream.org/index.php?lang=en#

How can I find the folder where the install package was down loaded so I can delete it.

I have looked every where "history" "library" "cache" and "download" folders but do not find it.

Where does the addon file download if I did not click install after it downloaded

Yours sincerely, Christophe Smith

Most of the time, when I hit a link, it opens but tabs with ads or pages that I didn't ask for are opening also and they come up on top. I have to dump them to get to the link I originally hit. How can I stop this from happening? It's so irritating and they take a while to come up before I can close them. Note: I use Firefox for Mac OS

Youtube is still working with Safari and Chrome but for some reason it stopped working with Firefox. This happened the night before it updated to Firefox 25. I thought the update was the issue but it's not. I've tried everything that I've read about to fix this issue. I've tried playing vids in safe mode, updated to the latest version of flash, disabled hardware acceleration, I've cleared all cookies and cache, I've reset firefox, I've deleted all my add-ons, I've deleted and re-installed firefox. Nothing is working. Anyone got a clue what to do?
