Running auto updated Firefox 17.0.1 on Windows 7. I used to be able to stream Netflix just fine until late in the evening, 11/30/2012. I tried to stream a movie and Netflix showed a window saying it couldn't due to a problem using Silverlight, code 2103. Netflix suggested I remove and reload Silverlight. I did, twice. I also updated Firefox yesterday, just in case. Still, no joy. I can stream Netflix just fine with Internet Explorer. What gives?

Recently, most of the icons that signify specific sources or locations or actions on web pages in my browser have stopped appearing. I get either no image or only generic gray icons (like a document icon). It makes most sites (e.g. like Amazon) nearly unusable. I don't think I've made any changes recently in my browser or my system. What has happened and how can I get my icons back. (BTW, I am NOT having this problem with Internet Explorer.) I am using Firefox 17.0.1, with an up-to-date Windows 7.

It's not the font on the text that I type with, but the Address bar, Bookmarks(Include the images), so everything above the tabs(Include the tab text/images), and the right click menu. If I go into Firefox safe mode it all works fine, I have tried to disable all addons but the problem is still there.

Edit: Tried to Reset firefox to default, didn't work. Uninstalled firefox and removed everything, didn't work. Downloaded firefox portable from portable apps, works, but I don't want to have it portable.

I always used to be able to search and retrieve password -- but the UI has changed recently and whatever I search for nothing is returned; but for many sites it still auto fills in my name/password so they are there. I've tried searching for anyone else having this problem but can't find anything -- can't believe I'm alone though...

Do I just down grade -- or is there anything else I can do to get functionality back?

The context menus when I click on File, Edit, History, Bookmarks etc. are invisible, you can see an outline of the menu but cannot see anything in it , same thing with right click context menus, occasionally they will blink between visible and invisible but 90% of the time they are just invisible. I can still click on selections or bookmarks but I have to guess where they are.

When I open Gmail, I get the usual list of messages. When I click on a message to read it, everything appears as usual except the box with the message text in it. To see that text, I have to click in the Reply box, and then I'll see the original message text quoted.

This is true on three different Gmail accounts. I've not changed any Gmail settings. I have enabled and disabled various extensions and User Styles that affect Gmail, and turned off Greasemonkey, without effect.

Yesterday I did update Java 7 update 10, but Gmail was still working after that. I did install several new extensions at that time, but I tried disabling them and restarting, and the problem persisted.

Please help. Thanks.

Not really a question, more of a plea...

Firefox 18.0 crawls on my machine. Not the browsing as such; that's only a little slower than 17.0.1 (still noticeable). I'm talking about opening and traversing menus and entering text in text fields on sites. I had to go back to 17.0.1 as it was just too annoying. This is on Linux Mint Debian Edition (Debian Testing), using the nl localized Firefox downloaded from the Mozilla site. Switching off extensions and/or using a new profile didn't help. If this doesn't get any better in following versions, I'll have to look for another browser when 17.0.1 becomes too old. Please don't make me do that. I've just tried Chrome and quite frankly, it's a bit of a joke...

I followed the instructions about how to put my bookmarks in alpha order but it didnt work so what is the correct way to do it in alpha order a-z

I also noticed this fix in the forum- Chosen solution by philipp

hello, the view menu in the library doesn't change the arrangement of bookmarks themselves (but only allows you to temporarily view them sorted by certain criteria). in order to organize them alphabetically, right-click a bookmarks folder & select "sort by name".

but there is no sort by name in the droip down box when I right click a bookmarks folder, but I eventually found the folder and done it as sort by name showed so I click on it and closed the bookmark, then opened again but did not change?

Add/Remove programs does not work - it does not show there - I am using 7, nor does it show as an addon.
