Starting about a week ago, seemingly at random tabs will open on their own. They always try connecting to the URL mentioned in the title. Now, this obviously won't resolve because that isn't a valid URL. This only seems to happen when firefox is already open, and isn't affected by running firefox in safe mode. I've ran some scans and haven't found anything, I've been through my startup processes and nothing is amiss there either. I feel I should also mention that this is only happening in firefox, I've left Internet Explorer open for a few hours to see if anything would happen and nothing did. Funnily enough it's just happened in the time it's taken me to type all of this out. That's about all I can think to add. I hope someone can get to the bottom of this.

Since I updated to version 29.0.1 Firefox keeps crashing. Before I had FIrefox 28 and no problems. I found out that my FIrefox uses about 500 to 600 MB RAM. Then the RAM usage suddenly goes up to about 1,5GB and Firefox crashes. What can I do, that Firefox stops crashing?

Here are my last crash reports:

MY QUESTION IS EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE USER BELOW ASKED (WHICH I HAVE PASTED BELOW), AND HE GOT A STANDARD (AND USELESS) RHETORICAL ANSWER FROM THE SUPPORT STAFF. PLEASE LOOK AT THE SPECIFIC QUESTION ASKED AND DO NOT ANSWER WITH A GENERIC ANSWER LIKE "THIS IS HOW TO ACCESS THE CUSTOMIZATION SCREEN" BECAUSE I FOUND THE CUSTOMIZATION SCREEN WITHOUT HAVING TO ASK AND THAT SCREEN DOES NOT SHOW HOW TO TURN ON THE FEATURE I NEED! DO YOU WONDER WHY I USE ALL CAPS? IF YOU READ THE ACTUAL QUESTION WHEN IT WAS WRITTEN IN LOWER CASE, I WOULDN'T NEED TO USE ALL CAPS!

Last night I updated to Firefox 29.0.1. Now, I don't mind change - and I don't mind redesigns - but I HATE it when options are removed. I want text labels on my buttons (the "Home" button for example"). In the previous version of Firefox you could right-click in the grey space at the top, and select "customise". From there, you could drag and drop which things you wanted to appear in your toolbar or not - and there was a tickbox to selext if you wanted text labels to appear underneath them or not. Now as hard as I look, I can't find this option. It looks like you're now forcing people to ONLY use icons. I hate that. My brain processes the word "Home" a lot faster than it recognises a little picture of a house. You need to understand that people work in different ways - and just because the Firefox developers might not personally use the text labels, that doesn't mean that no-one does!

Firefox 29 (and now 29.0.1). First -- I have QuickProxy 2009.07.19 as an Add-On but its button/icon is nowhere. Not in Customize so cannot move it onto the Toolbar (or whatever the toolbar is called these days). So where is QuickProxy's button/icon?

The above is the "important" question.

Second -- the Add-On icons I do have are spread out a bit too much so they cramp the URL window to the left. (Icons only - no text.) Must they be so spread out?

Thanks.

I have had a problem with FF crashing when I print. This happens in Safe mode, as well as standard. Following instructions, I reset FF. No crash. I reset the home page to one of my choice, and crash occurred. I tried a couple of others (after resetting, again,) and the same thing happened.

This may be something to look at. As long as I have the default home page in place, I can print.

I have submitted this multiple times. Here is the latest crash report: bp-2c6028fd-a16d-4672-9d21-753232140530

On Mac and PC using various versions of FireFox (including 29.0.1 on Win 7) the following occurs:

"Save Page As" a page with several iFrames in the content. I use "Web page, complete" and name the file.

Close FireFox. The .html file and accompanying folder are saved correctly. Then I open the file in FireFox and make some changes to fields in a form. Then "Save Page As" again and use the same name. It prompts to overwrite the existing file and I click Yes.

Three out of four times the file is no longer there. The folder remains but the .html file is gone. Not in the trash or hidden, just gone.

I know this sounds crazy but I have tested it on about 20 computers (both mac and various windows versions), all with different FF versions and different antivirus. The above scenario happens: always on 1 computer, occasionally (random) on 3, and hasn't been observed yet on the others.

Has anyone encountered this before? Are there any antivirus or malware products that could cause this? Any settings in FF that could? Any thing about this page or frames that could cause it?

I have spent the past couple of hours trying to get sync to work with no luck, trying everything I could find on this site, including the links to the instructions and the troublehooting, replies to questions, and even the video.

Am I right in assuming that because the Firebox versions don't match that sync won't work? Or is there yet something else that is the reason? Or can it be done, and I just haven't figured it out?

Thanks for your help.

How to force focus last focused HTML input element when going back in history with backspace?

SUMMARY: I am a Firefox user with HTML knowledge. I want to be able to configure Firefox to behave in a special manner when I hit backspace. It's something that Firefox already does, BUT NOT ALWAYS. I don't know why it behaves differently in different situations for no apparent reason. I want to be able to configure firefox to ALWAYS behave in the manner I want to. Read below for the precise description.

When I fill a FORM in a page, wether POST or GET, and press ENTER, it obviously acts as expected: submits the data and brings me to a new page. When I get to the new page, and I press BACKSPACE, Firefox behaves in sometimes like TYPE 1 and sometimes like TYPE 2 (see below), and I can't predict which one he will choose. I want to be able to configure it to behave ALWAYS like TYPE 2.

TYPE 1 - Firefox reloads the previous page, as if I just entered it for the first time.

TYPE 2 - Firefox brings me back to the exact same page view I had before pressing ENTER to submit the FORM. 2.1 - It doesn't reload the page; 2.2 - It places the page in the same scrolled position I was before (for example, if I scrolled to the bottom of the page to fill the FORM and press enter, after pressing backspace it brings me to the bottom of the page again; 2.3 - It automatically focus the HTML input element I last typed (the element that was focused at the very moment I pressed ENTER to submit the FORM).

So, I want to be able to configure Firefox for it to ALWAYS BEHAVE LIKE TYPE 2 whenever I fill a HTML FORM, press ENTER and press backspace after going to the new page. All three details I gave are important. Remember that I've already experienced TYPE 2 in previous versions of Firefox, I just wish to FORCE IT to behave like that ALWAYS (because for no apparent reason, sometimes it behaves like TYPE 1 instead).

Please let me know if that's possible, and if not, I would really THANK YOU ALL FOREVER if you add this feature to the next version.
