Hi, I have just brought a new laptop running windows 8 and have installed Firefox. My old laptop was running XP and I didn't have a problem running Firefox on it. I am trying to install Kindle for PC on my new laptop but I keep getting the message "this link needs to be opened with an application". I've never seen this message before on any web browser that I have used. I have "googled" the question and some suggestions are: > reloading Firefox-no point I've just loaded it > downloading through Internet Explorer-which I don't want to do as I want Firefox my browser of choice > Some talk of changing profiles-which I haven't a clue about.

Any help in plain and simple English and assuming I have no prior knowledge (I'm a car driver rather than a mechanic) will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Hello. I'm web-developer and developed and tested web-site with slide show on the home page on my domain eyfilli.com (http://www.eyfilli.com). Appearance of the caption of this slideshow on Firefox is very quickly, and seems not normally, but on other browsers it moves normally. I tried to solve it on a different domain, to which I must transfer this site (http://www.mulkiyyet.az). But the same problem is appears. My question is about solution of this problem. Please write, how can I adjust or set this function of slideshow with Firefox? Thanks in advance, regards, Yusif Eyyubov Baku, Azerbaijan

My screen is in the centre and only half used. I cant make it bigger with zoom as this only enlarges the details but not the size of the screen. It eliminates the details on the edge. I had a full screen originally but this only happened yesterday by itself. I need to increase the width.

A message appeared for no apparent reason, saying "Update Failed. Something is trying to trick Firefox into accepting an insecure update. Please contact your network provider and seek help."

This is the second time I got this message. The first time, I tried deleting the Firefox extensions directory. Obviously that didn't work.

About Firefox says there is no update.

I was able to access this website prior to 2 weeks ago. I can access this website on other computers without issues, and I can also access all other websites on this computer.

The following is what is listed in the navigation bar when I get the error message.

http://iphantom.com/wisd/restricted.html?fn=Default&FP=l&ip=10.201.5157&ibip=66.206.97.9&ldu=l&re=0&bu=wps.prenhall.com

I noticed it says wisd/restricted, but I can log on to this website using my wisd computer without issue, and I get the same error message at my home/other locations. So I know that it is not restricted. I have used all the other suggestions "no proxy", shut down firewalls, but nothing has worked.

Any help with this matter will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Cody

Can anyone identify the extension MaggniPeica 1.5? It appeared in my extension list, and the only accompanying info is that it updated today. I have it disable for the moment. I am sure it is probably nothing worrisome, but I do not recognize it, and a Google search turned up nothing except some “almost matches” written in Spanish. Unless those pages were asking about a red jacket, a telephone, and if I knew what day it is; my limited Spanish is useless. Thank you for humoring me.

I'm having a problem with Firefox when launching it using gestures on my touch-pad. More specifically I have set a "Three-Finger Press" application gesture in Synaptics Touch-pad v7.2, and set it to open Firefox (and only Firefox).

When I open Firefox in this manner and then try to open tabs (and/or multiple tabs), Firefox freezes completely, and is unresponsive. However when I open Firefox from the pinned shortcut on my taskbar the problem does not occur (and never has when opening Firefox this way).

I am guessing I am basically the only one who has this problem - but I would love to get it fixed. Any ideas?

After installing Windows 8 the texts in Firefox keep being with bugs. Tab titles, text in pages (specially in FB) have their characters changed. When I have to do some important thing to do I open IE, that works fine (but I still would prefer working with Firefox). Is there something to do about it?

Here I've put some examples (please look at the Firefox image): http://i45.tinypic.com/34fjxty.png http://i48.tinypic.com/5tw8k8.png http://i48.tinypic.com/rjr588.png

I use to have this issue about a year ago, but I found the problem with a program and uninstalled it. But I am not finding anything like that this time.

Some sort of toolbar has installed itself called Foxstart. I assume that it is part of FireFox.

I want to get rid of it. It keeps changing my homepage even when I reset it in Tools/Options... It doesn't show up in Contol Panel/Programs. A hard disk search doesn't show up a file with the name foxstart.* A regedit search doesn't show up any foxstart entry. I have uninstalled FireFox, rebooted and reinstatalled FF but it is still there.

How can I get rid of this really irritating unwanted toolbar?
