I run Ubuntu 10.10 LTSP server/client network and DO NOT want to upgrade Ubuntu... too much trouble, nobody can guarantee it will not hammer my LTSP install and besides, Unity is awful. I need newer Firefox due to some frequently used web pages, so I need an install procedure that will not hammer anything. It's a mission critical user environment. If anybody has positive experience with Firefox upgrade in similar environment please advise.

On both Windows and OS X environment, Firefox 41.0.1 does not seem to treat input events correctly when I try to input Hangul. I understand this problem happened in earlier old versions on old days.

Attached file shows wrongly treated Hangul characters when I tried to input same contents in upper rectangle.

BUG in amazon "Was this review helpful to you" (using latest firefox): press yes or no and you are put back to page 1 of reviews, thus losing your place!

Amazon: This discourages all feedback and needs to be fixed!

I wasn't able to replicate the issue on my side. Was this happening on a specific product? If so, can you provide a link to that particular item(s) so we can investigate?

Please cancel my bug report as not reproducible (I would have done so but I had no idea how to access my report after I sent it).

It happened on two separate occasions today (for the very same page) and on each occasion I patiently kept trying to vote a bunch of times on different posts on different pages of the reviews, but then on restarting firefox each time the bug disappeared (update: not really sure it disappeared -- I could have just gotten tired of replicating it). It must be some intermittent problem with firefox (they are always updating the browser and recently a big UI change occurred) -- sorry I blamed amazon. I have never seen that happen before. I was looking at the amazon Mio FUSE product page and clicking yes or no for helpful reviews. Each time I did that it failed to register my vote and put me back at the top of page 1 of the reviews (there are many pages of review for that miserable device). I was logged into amazon properly.

If it happens again and doesn't go away after restarting firefox (and after reboot, etc persistent problem) then I'll let you and firefox know.

Sorry to have wasted time with this -- next time I'll make sure it is completely reproducible before reporting an issue.

Wow! I take it back that this is unreproducible.

I just tried it again and again and again with the same bizarre result as originally reported (tried voting No or Yes on different reviews on page 3 of reviews for https://www.amazon.com/Mio-Training-Activity-Tracker-Crimson/product-reviews/B00MYK59TQ/?ie=UTF8&pageNumber=3&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending#

The same thing happens whether I have Adblock Plus enabled or disabled.

I don't see how this could be a problem with just one amazon product's pages. But if not, lots of folks would be reporting this. My firefox on Windows 7 version is 41.0.1 . Perhaps it is a cache issue with firefox??

I just restarted firefox and the problem still reproduces! I am logged into firefox and vote Yes or No on page 3 (undoubtedly this affects all pages) of the reviews for this product and the vote does not record and I am put back at the top of page 1 of the reviews.

I did not explicitly clear the cache or reboot though (I've taken enough time with this issue today).

Update: next day -- this problem reproduces for me on _all_ amazon pages when I vote for a review which is on a page beyond page 1. Still a problem after reboot. I'll just stop voting on reviews, which is a fine workaround.

Conclusion: It must be something unique to my machine, since other folks don't see this issue.

FWIW...also have Win7, FF 41.0.1 and ABP enabled. Was able to vote on the reviews of the page you linked with no issues.

OK, Got it!

I cleared the firefox cache using the free CCleaner. Problem gone!

So it is a cache issue that causes this strange amazon problem using the latest firefox. And that explains why other folks don't see it who don't have their firefox cache already full.

It is clearly a bug, but I believe more likely with firefox and not amazon. Hopefully the next firefox versions will fix it.

The issue title which I can't seem to edit should specify the condition "when the firefox cache is full".

Whenever I use the Hiragana input method for Japanese (Mac) the keyboard freezes up every other time I try to type. After typing one sentence or phrase in Japanese, I need to manually switch to another language, then switch back to Japanese to unfreeze the keyboard for use in Firefox. I seems to get stuck when I am offered to choose between homophonous logographs i.e. 用紙 and 要旨, and although the arrow keys work to toggle between different choices, 'enter' nor 'space bar' will register, thus preventing me from naturally exiting the drop down scroll and moving on. This problem only occurs inside Firefox, and only with Japanese Hiragana (Chinese Pinyin works fine ironically). In Safari and other browsers the input method also works fine. Thank you for answering my question.

I was playing Total war and mid game it only went up on the screen. I couldn't control the other keys without exiting the game. After leaving the game I found the issue also occurred with Cortana search, edge and firefox. I realized I'd probably hit a key on my keyboard that changed it so I rebooted my PC and was able to change the keyboard language before logging in and that worked (I had tried prior when I was logged in and it didn't work). I got have an alienware kg-900 keyboard for my win 10 alienware aurora . I have tried: Clearing cookies disabling add-ons restarting firefox in safe mode refreshing firefox ensured num lock wasn't on rebooting PC uninstalling + Reinstalling Firefox running anti virus and mal ware made sure sticky and filter keys are off

-- Any keys I push just appears to be put in order on the screen , example: pushing "A" it will instead put 123456789 and then move onto letters , spelling out qwerty.

When I click the button to forget browser history, and then I select the option of forgetting the last 24 hours, at first it selects what I wanted BUT as soon as i click the final "forget" button, it automatically switches me to only 5 minutes and then disappears with the "thank you" message for me to click on. It won't let me forget 24 hours. This happened over and over. This is not something a user can fix. Only Mozilla Firefox can fix it. I know you are made up of volunteers, so I will appreciate your time whenever you can reply and whenever you can fix the problem. Also, I will appreciate if you are able to make it so we can forget all browser history, not just 24 hours. Thank you for your generous time and hard work.

Installed Test Pilot Experiments and when I got to the Tabs Center, now Firefox is all gray and the bottom bar is halfway cut off no matter what size I make the window. I tried several of my bookmarks and nothing is displayed, all gray. Even the options and add-on pages are all gray. BTW... I can't add an image from the button below (maybe because I am using Chrome? Icon just spins forever). OK, I found the 'Restart Firefox w/ Add-ons Disabled' in the Help menu. Did that and removed the Test Pilot, no change. It is gone but still just a gray screen in Firefox. I am trying to reload the Test Pilot and disable the Tabs Experiment but it has been saying installing for over 10 minutes now and nothing else is happening (no pop-up or such install is going on). Luckily I have Chrome installed so I can post this.

Would I have better browser security if these two line were set to 'true'?

Are there other security changes I could make in about:config that would result in better security.

[Your initial question field cut off the quote I tried to give you to locate the problem. I hope that what remains is enough for you to find it.]

1--I was trying to find a way to make FF handle cookies the way I need it to. I clicked around in your help file until I arrived at the user submission quoted above -- which is *exactly* the same as my problem. When I clicked on it, FF said "page not found." Very frustrating.

2--Please tell me how to have FF prompt me about storing *all levels of* cookies involved in a web site on my computer. I have already tried various settings on your Options-Privacy page (including those in your help file) *and* the "View Page Info" page. When I use the settings you suggest, many web sites will not function correctly, even if I'm not ordering anything or making other kind of choices, etc.

Internet Explorer functioned exactly as I need it to, i.e.: I set it to prompt me before storing both first-party and third-party cookies. When it displayed the prompt, the options were to allow or not allow (for now), plus you could tell it always to apply your allow/not allow choice to that web site in the future.

Please tell me how to make Firefox behave like that -- of course, it doesn't have to be exactly the same buttons, etc., but the function has to be the same. As it is now, it seems you can't stop Firefox from allowing cookies, or certain types of them; I hope that's not true.

3--Lately I've been noticing ads coming up in separate Firefox instances (additional Firefox icon(s) displayed when you Alt+Tab between open programs). One of them even read my IP address. I am very upset about this. How do I turn that off? I looked in your help file and there's nothing about this. (I use a major antivirus program and keep it strictly up to date and run scans often.)

Thank you for your help.
