I really don't like the look-and-feel of the new pdf.js viewer. On my machine (6 yr old HP running Windows XP with sp 3) it displays slower than Acrobat Reader did, and I was perfectly happy with Acrobat Reader plugin. Frankly I want to disable pdf.js, but haven't been able to figure a way to do it. It doesn't display anywhere I could find on Add-ons Manager. I don't want to be compelled to use a feature that seems to be a performance detriment, at least for me. Mozilla, please rethink this!

When I try to access my gmail account, Firefox says "the page isn't redirecting properly. Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept

   cookies."

I've tried removing cookies, preventing firefox from accepting cookies, and restarting Firefox in safe mode. The best I can get is the log in page, but once I enter my information, I get the same message again. Any suggestions?

The space for the address bar is so large that the size of the 'Search' box (Google in my case) is tiny. How do I reduce the size of the web address box so that I can make the search address box bigger? Note: this is nothing to do with the toolbar or customising that - it is about customising the layout of the whole bar and changing the amount of space on the bar that each element takes.

Firefox just out of nowhere decides to disable the flash plug-in without asking me. And everytime I go to a site that uses flash, I have to see this message (see link below.)

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/why-do-i-have-click-activate-plugins

So how do I reactivate the flash plugin without updating it? The reason I do not update it, is because when I update it, I get a constant pop-up error message. And when I uninstall my flash altogether, the constant error pop-up messages stop, but now I get the "you don't have it installed" message. And when I download an outdated version

So no matter what I do, I have problems with this. I don't want to have to keep clicking the "always activate plugin for this site" button, for every site I visit on the world wide web, because that is out-of-this-world annoying.

I'm getting really irritated by firefox, and their bull. I will not update because you can't keep up.

SUPPOSEDLY this issue was solved; it wasn't, not by any of the answerers. I solved it. I tried Search Reset 0.2 and found that it did NOTHING. Same problem: Every time you open a new tab, Bing opens the accursed thing (I blame Mozilla because when I installed the package I got from their site, it informed me during installation that it was optimized for Bing and I LOATHE Bing and was pissed because no non-Bing alternative was offered), NOT the default New Tab page with recently used page panes on it. I removed a disabled toolbar incompatible with this newer version of Firefox, uTorrent Community Toolbar, and Webroot toolbar (keep in mind that the Search Reset is supposed to be a No Restart Required add-on). I restarted, opened a new tab, and was gratified to see NO BING BULLCRAP.

One might argue that this was covered and closed already. Not exactly, not specifically. Generalities are NO GOOD for specific problems. I can't explain WHY this worked, because NONE of the toolbars had anything to do with Bing, and none of the toolbars in question had been active (uTorrent Community Toolbar had been removed in Control Panel> Programs & Features, yet still showed up in Firefox's toolbars list; this seems to happen with Firefox sometimes).

I don't need an answer...NOW, but I think a few others might find this works for them. For a variety of reasons, not everyone will get the same results, or even SEE this problem on their systems. I would have added this to the question that didn't satisfy me, but someone CLOSED it.

I have finally isolated the source of unblockable ads that pop up on certain Websites, but not others. These ads originate from different sources, but many of them are Chitka ads that block part of the screen and can't even be clicked OFF. They just continuously block what you are trying to read or see.

When I disable Java on Firefox, these ads disappear--totally. Unfortunately, many other Websites that I visit utilize Java. So I am wondering, "Why can't we have control over which Websites display Java and which ones don't--much like blocking popup ads from certain Websites and allowing them from others?"

The only work around I have found, is to open TWO browsers: Firefox with Java disabled to view the sites that have the annoying ads and Internet Explorer with Java enabled to view the sites that require Java and don't have annoying popups.

Am I the only one having this problem?

So the latest version of Firefox 19 comes with a built in PDF viewer.

The problem that I found is that this viewer at its present time does NOT show fillable fields ina PDF, or let the user type into these fillable fields, or show the electronic print and instructions buttons we place at the top of most of our PDF "forms".

Ex: http://www.tmcc.edu/financialaid/downloads/forms/1213/FINAConsortiumAgree1213.pdf

This form should show buttons at the top and let a user fill it out. It does with the Reader plugin. In FF 19's built in PDF viewer I cant seem to do anything.

We presently make all our PDF forms fillable, so if this is an issue, hopefully a fix or update can be found.
