I think may have a faulty keyboard, as banging on the F keys seems to effect the problem somewhat. However, I can't solve the problem, and it is quite annoying. During any given Firefox session, after a few minutes of the browser being open, the developers toolbox will begin randomly popping up and down, in rapid machine gun fire pattern, and it does not stop unless I close Firefox and open a new window. I have gone into about:config and disabled the toolbar, yet that seemed to do nothing whatsoever to the problem. Is there another (more effective) way to disable the toolbar in question? Why on Earth is this random problem occurring???

When you inspect a element and go to the box model and hover/click on the different regions of the box model it shows what region the color indicates, for example content, padding,border etc. In Firefox 37.0.1 the text which show the name of the region is White, it is completely illegible and impossible to read. Why would you make the text white? Please revert the change.

First of all firefox is my favorite and default browser for a long time now in the windows OS. And I'd like to be able to adjust the colors of the html5 videos, as I can with internet explorer. Is something like this under consideration to be added in a future build? Because this lack of color settings is the only reason, I'm still using flash to play videos in youtube and other sites

Hi, I am using html button print tiff image. When I click on "Print" button new window gets opened. Below is the code

        win.document.html(printThis);
        win.document.write('');
       win.document.close();
       win.print();
       win.close();

         var printThis = '<embed id="pre" access="4" src="' + imgName + '" type="image/tiff" width="100%" />';

It will show me image but, If I print the page then it will do not print anything.

I am using AlternaTIFF to show tiff images. please suggest me solution for this. I am not getting answer on this.

Any idea where this is made ? by a plugin ? by the system ? etc. I'm in FF38 Linux.

Hi,

i have just been playing around with the App-maker on Mozilla.

i created a very simple tapping app that counts up etc and finishes on a page.

but when i was done i played with some other buttons to see what they did, i added the channel gate widget. Now at the bottom of my first page is the channel gate widget and i cannot remove it. its really frustrating, A) i have no idea what it does, i removed some of the channels so there is only A now. yet i cant seem to remove the channel gate widget entirely.

any help would be great. (see attached image to see what i mean)

I am a web developer, and i am using Iceweasel 31.7.0 (which is based of Firefox) under Linux Debian wheezy.

A problem appears when i am writing a javascript code. My goal is to determine a size of screen (i am using typical pc, not any mobile device). So i am writing:

var body = window.document.body.style

// block to determine width body.height = '1px' for ( var i = 0; ; i++ ) {

  body.width = i + 'px'

window.document.documentElement.scrollLeft = 1

  if ( window.document.documentElement.scrollLeft != 0 )

break } i--

// block to determine height body.width = '1px' for ( var k = 0; ; k++ ) {

  body.height = k + 'px'

window.document.documentElement.scrollTop = 1

  if ( window.document.documentElement.scrollTop != 0 )

break } k--

body.width = ( i ) + 'px' body.height = ( k ) + 'px'


So after this code both scroll line appears! When it should not be because i an k variables are choosen maximum without scroll. And, moreover, an error disappears (both scroll lines disappears) when two blocks switched by place each other (first determine height, then width).

I'll appreciate at least confirmation that it is an error, even if you cannot provide a patch for Iceweasel. Thank you.

We are using non-persistent desktops for a portion of our users and their primary web browser is Firefox, so I have attempted to customize their experience using the mozilla.cfg file which I have created. This mostly works however the very first time it opens the bookmarks I have added to the bookmarks bar fail to load. If they close firefox and re-open they come right up. Unfortunately every time they log into their virtual workstation they have top go through this process since the machine is non-persistent. The code I have used to add the bookmarks is as follows:

try {
var ios = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/network/io-service;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsIIOService);
var uri = ios.newURI("https://localhost:61000", null, null);
var navBookmarksService = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/browser/nav-bookmarks-service;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsINavBookmarksService);
if (!navBookmarksService.isBookmarked(uri)) {
navBookmarksService.insertBookmark(navBookmarksService.toolbarFolder, uri, navBookmarksService.DEFAULT_INDEX, "Add X");
}
} catch(e) {displayError("firefox.cfg", e);}

Like I said, it works, I just need it to work the first time, not the second.

Any ideas?

I am a web developer working in PHP, Yii, and jquery on an Oracle VM VirtualBox . So I was building a script that was meant to run an upload to an ftp server. Prior to designing the script to do the upload, I had it downloading the finished file(XML) to my browser. Once the script was ready to begin the FTP upload, I changed the code to do so. I ran a test and everything went fine. At that point, I stopped working on the code to wait for a response on the test FTP file. So I began to work on a separate project when I noticed the log I had up just triggered another FTP upload. I wasn't in the application at the time. Thinking it was me, I reset the browser and apache to be safe. I continued working on my separate project, when again, the FTP was triggered(projects were not even remotely related, and were in different db's). At the end of the day, there were a couple random triggers of the script(thankfully we were uploading to a test ftp server). So I reboot the computer before I left for the day. Come back after the weekend and it is still occurring. Finally I noticed, while tracking the log, that it went off when I opened a new tab in FireFox. I tried 2 more times just to confirm that was the trigger. Cleared browser cache/history and it stopped. It was as if the new tab was attempting to trigger the previous URL when opening. Has anyone ever seen this happen before and is there a way to prevent it? The new tabs in my browser are set to the default blank Firefox page. Addons include Greasemonkey, firebug, xdebug, and Web Developer. Code has no javascript, jquery, or ajax(other than what Yii may automatically include).

This I believe is a very specific problem not caused by anything on the web browser or the website itself but likely a result of clashing security protocols between the two. I use GoDaddy Website Builder to edit and build my business website and for some reason, changes made to the text within the website do not save (Editing Pictures and Titles does work however) and when I edit text in other browsers (IE or Chrome), it works just fine. I'd love to keep using FireFox (its faster and and in my personal opinion more secure) but I can't if the changes I make will not appear on the website. Any ideas why this might be happening?
