Why does your spell-check still suck so bad?

I accidentally typed "amd" instead of "and" and FF asked me if I meant to typed "aided". Really? Often times the word I'm looking for isn't even listed in the suggestions. And if it has a apostrophe forget it, FF has no clue about punctuation. Why? You'd think by now it'd be able to learn these things. Internet Explorer has no trouble. Can I import their dictionary somehow?

I cannot update to the latest version. After the downlaod is complete, the browser does not respond and I cannot do anything. How can I fix this?

I am using a MacBook Pro and updated to Sierra. I need to use FireFox for a school I am attending, but when I download to the latest version, nothing happens. The browser opens, but when I enter a web address there is no action.

I also use Norton antivirus, but I think I have added Firefox to the list of allowed devices on the firewall. The older version of Firefox works, but is slow.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello people, I saw a couple threads about "boxes with numbers and letters inside" (for example, "why do sometimes text symbols appear as boxes with numbers/letters in them" and "Boxes with numbers and letters show instead of certain images on some websites"). I am using a chat service, and when my counterpart sends me some emoticons, instead of the emoticon I see the little square with HEX digits inside. The interesting part is that if I "brutally" copy-and-paste the little square, and send it over the chat, my counterpart actually sees the original emoticon! Ok, that's interesting, but my question is not about the fact that I can't see the emoticon. Actually, I wish to carry out a similar operation with control characters. More specifically, I need to send the BEL character (ASCII 7) over the chat, in order to beep my counterpart's computer, and vice versa. I already tried to type [CTRL+G] in the outbox of the chat, but it doesn't work, because instead of seeing the "^G" output that I expected, the "Find" bar is invoked... curiously, "Find" should pop up with [CTRL+F], so it seems that [CTRL+F] and [CTRL+G] do have exactly the same effect! o_O Similarly, since my counterpart often accesses the chat with an iPhone instead of PC, I think that the [CTRL+G] key combination is not suitable for the scope of beeping my computer. So I'm wondering whether there's a way to actually obtain a "somehow-visible" character corresponding to ASCII 7 that can be copied-pasted and sent over a chat, in order to "beep" one's computer. If I could somehow get a "little box with numbers in it" corresponding to "BEL"... =^_^= Thank you! :o)

Firefox 18.0 disables Norton 360 v6 Toolbar/ID Safe, and Norton tells me (as of 1/17/13) that the problem is Firefox. Please address ASAP!

I have spent 8 hours on the phone with Symantec, up through and including their executive escalation resolution center to address this problem.

After updating to FF 18.0 (Win XP), my Norton 360 v6 Toolbar/ID safe no longer works. They took control of my computer, troubleshot Firefox in safe mode, removed and reinstalled Firefox, removed and reinstalled Norton, and the toolbar/ID safe is still inop. Note the most recent FOUR hours were spent with their engineering team late yesterday, 1/17, and they are saying that the issue is with Firefox.

NOTE: Although the toolbar itself appears in the Add-Ons section, it shows "disabled", and there is no means/button by which to enable the toolbar.

I told Norton that they should be speaking with Mozilla, but I don't think they "get that."

I think it is an incompatibility issue between Firefox 18.0 and Norton 360 v6.

Updating an old install of Firefox (another computer that I'm rebuilding from scratch because of a crash). My computer doesn't like the security certificate which is issued to edgecast, not Mozilla.

If I go to the same page using this computer (my laptop, Firefox ver. 18.0.1) I get a certificate issued to Mozilla.

Is this difference legit or a security hack?

PS. My email isn't up yet, so emails to me might not get through. I'll stay here for a while to see if anyone can help.

When there was a version 3.5 I liked firefox because it had easy tabbed browsing and there where a lot of extensions made by others (not by mozilla itself).

Now I am using Firefox 18 and it crashes all the time, so you are going to remind me to update firefox to version 38 or is it upgraded already to version 120.

What I mean is this, firefox updates more in one week then Microsoft updates in a year and still keeps on crashing some 5 times a day.

So if I where a mozilla developer(?) I should get the hell out of this internet browsers business and find a new developing area where i could work on.

In other words firefox is just CRASHING CRAP THAT NEEDS TO BE DISCONTINUED FOREVER.

A BUNCH OF CRAP DEVELOPERS THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE OVER THERE, YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THE MEANING IS OF

My firefox which is the last truly secure version that I am aware of has started updating itself without changing its version number. It updates the add-on manager which shuts down my flash player requiring me to update to less secure versions of flash It is now allowing no-right click scripts to actually not allow me to pull up the right click menu on webpages or restrict the options displayed according to the no-right click script that is running. Why is my version of Firefox more secure? it is farther away from the OS it does not interact with explorer and it has its own Java control. Newer versions of Firefox are almost as bad or worse than Internet Explorer which is now being abandoned by Microsoft due to all of its security bugs that have mostly to do with how closely it interacts with the OS. I want a BROWSER not a window into my systems OS for the entire world to use to try and get into it. I want the BROWSER to only BROWSE the internet not download things automatically, not shutdown my plugins without asking, not allow poorly coded scripts to execute code on my machine (including no-right click scripts). I need to know how to STOP my firefox from updating the addon manager. How to keep it from allowing IE only code from running as it has now started allowing no-right click scripts to execute.

My version is 18.0.1

I will not go past this version, I want to STOP it from accepting ANY and ALL UPDATES including to the ADDON manager! in my advanced tab I have already checked the button to Never check for updates, that is not working!

Firefox 18 suddenly now renders webpage improperly in Quirks mode while in other versions of firefox and other browsers webpage loads correctly in standard mode

On desktop I have version 18 Firefox which I don't want to upgrade because not all add-ons I need are available in higher versions. This Version 18 Firefox *used to load a webpage properly* but I've noticed it no longer does (missing graphics and text) and that it is being rendered in Quirks mode. However, on a laptop running version 32 of Firefox, or using Chrome on the same desktop, the webpage loads properly and is rendered in standard compliance mode. How can I force this version of Firefox 18 to once again render the subject webpage in standard mode so that it displays properly like it used to?? Since it formerly worked, and since the page also renders correctly in other browsers and versions of firefox, it doesn't appear that the subject webpage needs editing, only that something happened in this version of Firefox 18 to make it suddenly render the page incorrectly in quirks mode. Can you help me force Firefox to render the page in standard mode WITHOUT editing the webpage? THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!!!

I am using Firefox version 18.0.2 on a virtual Windows 7 machine to run automated tests against. In order to keep a stable testing environment, I do not want Firefox auto-updating (we plan to do updates manually). I have tried turning this setting off under options > advanced > update by selection the "never check for updates" option, but Firefox still updated to 35.x. I reinstalled 18.0.2 and tried checking the about config.

app.update.auto is false. app.update.enabled is false. app.update.service.enabled is false. app.update.silent is false.

I also tried replacing the values for app.update.url and app.update.url.details with empty strings after finding that as a suggestion online. Still, Firefox is auto-updating to 35.x.

My assumption is that the changes I'm making are only effective for the user profile they are made on. Is this right? I'm guessing the auto-updates are happening under another user profile. So is there a way to disable auto-updates for all users?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
