Firefox opens ok, but rapidly has a drop down, small, top-centered window that says "Sync", but quickly goes blank and shortens right at the top of the wind. When this happens, it freezes Firefox and the only way out is to quit Firefox. I just upgraded Firefox to the latest version on a Mac OS 10.9.3 from an older version.

I have been using Firefox and it used to ask me if I wanted to save a download or open it. Now, when it is a PDF it automatically downloads. I don't need all of these downloads on my computer. When I go to Options, I have checked the box that says "Always Ask Me Where to Save Files". I only want to open downloads, not save them.

Since my system was getting sluggish I've decided to format everything and reinstall Win 8.1 back with FF32.

I was normally logged in and have stored approx. 100 passwords and bookmarks in that FF32.

After reinstall I've logged in to FF Sync and found an unpleasant surprise: Even though all check boxes are ticked - everything is emply. Nothing is being fetched.

What the hell? I dislike losing everything. I do have backup but not completely up to date.

sigh

Since the update yesterday, FIrefox is practically unusable.

I cannot see any of the boxes for inputting data and all websites look wrong with no graphical images showing up such as showing buttons, logos and color schemes.

I have tried to restart in Safe Mode, Creating a new profile in Profile Manager, AND I have uninstalled and reinstalled.  

Any additional suggestions? If I do not get this resolved soon I will most likely begin to use Opera or Chrome.

After I upgraded to the latest version of the Firefox the print on most sites I visit became virtually unreadable because the text is so faint. In same cases I have to block the text to be able to read it. It became impossible to use the "Reply" or Compose" in gmail (online) because the default type-size is so small and faint (grey? or light?). I literally have to go to a notepad to compose my message, then block and copy, and finally paste it into the reply window. I played with default colors, etc but nothing seems to fix it. I even used the classic-theme restorer add-on and still no improvement...

Anybody else have this problem? What is the solution?
