Hi!

Firefox on my Windows 7 pc keeps on reverting to version 29 over and over and over again...

I update it and after a while when I restart it I end up with version 29...

I tried to remove everything by first uninstalling it and then deleting the content of a few appdata directories but nothing seems to work...

This really feels like groundhog day...

I guess some sort of update file for 0.29 stayed stuck somewhere and it tries to apply it over and over again but I can't seem to find where it is...

Any ideas?

Thank you!

Nick

When trying to access a website, getting message: "The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided." I have been able to access the site without any problems until yesterday. There is no option allowing me to continue to the page, so I attempted to add an exception manually. However, when I try to do this on my "certificates" tab, I get a message telling me that this website already has a valid certificate. What's the problem? I am able to access the site on other computers, it is only on my laptop that this problem appears....

I just upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7. I reinstalled firefox, added the speeddial that I liked so much, and then tried to use firefox. I can't type the web address into the address bar when I start firefox. I always have to open a new tab before it'll let me do it. Also, I can't highlight and copy what's typed there - AND I can't "paste and go" anymore. Is that open gone?

For two days in a row, when I start Firefox (29.0.1), Avast anti-virus (free version, up to date) has popped up and told me that Classic Toolbar Button add-on is untrusted (or unsafe or whatever). If I click the more button (or whatever it was) in that Avast window, it gives me an option to let Avast remove all add-ons from my browser (which I have not done, because duh).

Has anyone else encountered this? Any idea what is going on? What can I do to get Avast to stop complaining about Classic Toolbar Buttons?

Thanks.

after updating to firefox 29 and then 29.0.1, the cpu usage that firefox are using are insane,

it ranges between 50%-100% cpu usage.

and it happens even on normal non flash tab,

besides even if the site is using flash, i am using flash block and adblock plus,

so anykind of flash material wont play or uses cpu.

please fix this ASAP, because firefox has now gone from useable to resource hog,

oh and i don't like the new look, because firefox has become more similar to chrome on User interface,

and i don't use chrome, because i don't like the UI, and now firefox tried to be chrome twin ?

i think that's all, thanks in advance.

edit : fixed some typo

Sorry guys, i am disgusted with this upgrade. 29 does not seem like a good ui update at all. The menu bar looks really bad and so does the tab. Furthermore this does not solve my other tab issue i have either in another question i have asked.

How can i revert back to my last version with all my tabs/windows/history restored? I will do a system restore if i have to and then cancel all automatic updates. I honestly dont care if it gives me a bigger security risk.

I print several EBAY labels a day. Just upgraded to firefox 29 (not realizing really what had changed - now regretting) and the built in PDF viewer no longer prints properly. It shows the label fine on the screen, but when sending to the printer (I tried two different ones) it just prints out two blanks pages. I tried a number of different printer settings and as i mentioned two different printers. Can't get anything to print now except two blank pages. If I switch the application settings in firefox to use an external 3rd party PDF viewer (e.g. Adobe reader 11, PDF Viewer plus, etc) those work fine. However, the default built in PDF viewer clearly broke in this new version. A very disappointing launch for me as this is critical feature for my use. Yes, I have a work around, but the point (and new bug) is still valid.

Last night I spent over an hour trying to recover 'Bookmark this page' because I thought my computer had gliched ! First of all, if you are going to change stuff like Bookmarks why on Earth don't you tell us so that we don't have to spend hours trying to figure out where stuff has gone or what has happened ?

Eventually I realised that 'Bookmark this page' had gone because you have changed it, although God knows why? 'Bookmark this page' was simple, effective, efficient and easy to use, you have replaced it with a pathetic blue star that makes life complicated, means I cannot easily bookmark a page and makes me jump through unnecessary hoops to try and bookmark a page in a particular folder. In fact I can no longer bookmark a page into a chosen folder because I cannot figure out how to do it !? It's enough to make me change to IE.

Just exactly what is the point of having a bookmark system (blue star) that puts bookmarks into 'unsorted bookmarks' ?? Why choose that over a simple effective and rational system with a button that simply says 'Bookmark this page'??? I just don't get it? Why make life so complicated and change something that worked well ?

Is there any way I can get 'Bookmark this page' back into my Bookmarks Menu PLEASE ?

Thank you.

Ray

I had my tabs bar just above the page before I updated it and now can't figure out how to put them there again.

My bookmarks bar has migrated to the very top of the browser - not where I had (or want) that either!

I've a BIG space (on the browser edge) between the top of the active page and the URL

In short this is a mess - why could it not keep my settings as they where in the previous version?

I've already wasted over an hour trying to sort this - an hour I could have been doing more productive things - so yeah thanks for stealing my time as well!

As you might have guessed I'm a bit annoyed & angry at this.

If something isn't broken then DON'T fix it - it's an old adage but it holds true!

Bring me back my old firefox UI. I hate firefox 29. It doesn't help me do things quicker and the those bl**dy curvy tabs! Try that with 20+ tabs open...

Please, please revert this retro step in your next version. There's nothing that I'd call an improvement. And a leaky bandaid in the form of an addon is waste of good intentions.

This is absolutely ridiculous. How can anyone think it is a GOOD IDEA to REMOVE basic features such as a REFRESH BUTTON from something called a WEB BROWSER?!

No, I do not want to have to go all the way over to no-man's land on the right hand side of the address bar to click a tiny little refresh button over there! I want to put it where it ALWAYS has been on ALL my browsers. ON THE FREAKING LEFT next to the back button.

The person who came up with idea should be fired.

The person who approved this idea should be fired.

The person who let the final build go out the door without including a simple and easy way to get the refresh button back as part of a "customize" feature should also be fired.

None of these people have clue about what people want in a CUSTOMIZABLE web browser.

No, I do not want to revert to some past "classic theme". That is not a solution That is ridiculous.

No, I do not want the add-on bar restored. That is not a solution. Do not tell me that it is a solution.

What I want, is a button, in the customize box, that is a refresh button, that I can put where I want it, like it should have been from the start!

Fix it!
