Well, it's happened again. The 40.0 upgrade disabled a bunch of add-ons including Dashlane. I'll be off to Chrome at least until these issues are fixed.

The 40.0 upgrade disabled an unusual number of add-ons. On my browser, they are Bing Fastest Search NoScript Office Launcher Qualsys Browser Check Readability Skype Click-to-Call WebRank SEO Toolbar Webroot Filtering Extension

As I understand it, I would have to contact each of the add-on producers to ask them to restore their Firefox verification. Instead, I'll do what I have done in the past and go over to Chrome. This disabling has greatly affected my browsing experience, especially for business. Firefox is the only browser I have encountered that disables add-ons and extensions almost every time it is updated. I love Firefox but this is getting old. I'll seriously consider staying on Chrome.

My bookmarks toolbar disappeared when I entered fullscreen mode and it never reappeared. I've checked and unchecked the option to make the toolbar visible under "view," to zero effect. What gives?

Every time I try to update Firefox Developer Edition it restarts and it keeps in the same version, I tried safe mode (even reinstalling, but the version keeps, weird, no?) Recently started showing this. (see image attached) I'm running OSX 10.10 (Yosemite) I only use Adblock Plus and the troubleshooting information should be attached. So... Should I try to run firefoxdeveloper.app as sudo? BTW1: I'm a developer so expect modifications in my system. BTW2: Is weird to ask this, cause, I'm a volunteer for mozilla support...

The problem began July 4th when I clicked on the link to login to my online bank account, as well as my identity theft login. The pages are blank. The tab reads mail...LhFD710hmPg. I now have to go to Internet Explorer to complete this function. I never encountered this problem.

When I receive job updates from Indeed and click on the job title to read more of the description, the page is blank.

Updates keep coming almost daily. However, I open 4 tabs with different info and the browser crashed and shuts down attempting to reopen and reload. This has been going on for at least the last 4 updates. Wouldn't it be more efficient if they fixed and tested the update properly before rushing to a quick new release? They've been releasing patches over a worn out NEW outfit.

I've had this problem ever since started using Windows 10.

I like to have the window flush to the top, left and bottom of the screen, when I close Firefox and re-open it there is a 5 or so pixel gap along the left and bottom edges, every time I move them back and re-open Firefox the gaps return.

It doesn't happen in any other program so it's not Windows 10 fault.

How can I fix this?

Firefox was working great until recent updates of version 39.

I have now lost my ability to bookmark a page. When I click the star icon as I always had, the star turns bright blue and gives the appearance that the bookmark is being transferred--or "thrown into" -- the bookmark icon. But the page never appears anywhere in my bookmarks.

Before when I clicked the star, I always got a box that would let me edit the name I wanted for the bookmark name, and the different bookmark menu locations that I could choose from as to where I wanted the bookmark to go. Now I don't get any box.

I know this has to be a result of the recent update changes and not something in my computer because I never had that simulation of "throwing" the bookmark before. Or the bright blue star.

My homepage has recently changed itself, although I did not authorize this change. I want it to be msn.com, but now it displays either bing.com or the blank Firefox page seen after clicking the "Reset" button on the Options page.

I've tried entering msn.com into the Home section of the Options page, and also dragging the msn.com tab to the Home button of my browser. MSN loads when I click the Home button, but on startup, one of the other pages loads. Again, I made zero changes to my homepage settings myself. I'd greatly appreciate any advice.

Thanks in advance.

When watching YouTube (or other HMTL5 video content) in Firefox the video's fullscreen mode does not work correctly. When I press the fullscreen button (usually to be found at the right-bottom) and Firefox switches to fullscreen mode my tab bar and url bar are still visible, but my bookmark bar is gone. When I return from fullscreen the bookmark bar does not reappear.

In Firefox 39 I was able to switch to Fullscreen (without any visible bar) and return from it (without losing any bar in the process) and didn't have any problems.

Do you have a solution for this problem or should I just wait for this bug to be fixed?
