Hi! I'm using Firefox 29.0.1 on Windows 8, (also up-to-date), and Flash plug-in won't work. I re-downloaded & installed Adobe Flash 13.0.0.214...I verified it on their website, but I can't get the plugin to work. I had no problem with it earlier today, but for some reason it won't work anymore. PLEASE HELP! Thank you, Nuts4Mutts  :(

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

I'm using Firefox 29 on Win7x64. It's my default browser. Sometimes, when I try to open a web link from Outlook email or Yahoo email, the link does not open. Instead, Firefox opens a process every time that I click, but does not open the link or even a page. If I try to open another Firefox instance by clicking the shortcut, yet another process starts, but a page does not open. Safe mode does not help. The only resolution thus far is to close every process or reboot, and then re-install Firefox. This issue began in v29 or the one just before. I also have tried suggestions posted to the forum. Thanks!

General Complaint


SO VERY frustrating to have to deal with changes that are completely unnecessary and unwanted!! This looks like Chrome now. If I wanted to use Chrome, I'd use Chrome!! Why does Firefox feel it is necessary to fix a working watch??

Can't Get Rid of Icon Text


Although the Toolbar Customize option is set to Icons Only (default), the text will not go away and leave me with only icons.

I had a custom toolbar (with my own selection of buttons) and it survived the upgrade to FF29, but after I installed Classic Theme Restorer, I lost it again (which had been a problem with FF28 as well, where I'd lose it suddenly on startup and had to rebuild it).

I rebuilt the toolbar after upgrading to 29 and it showed icons only at first. But I repositioned the new toolbar among the another toolbars and that's when the icon text insisted on appearing with the icons. I can't get rid of the text now.

Icon Size Too Small


The new icons are microscopic! Even when I have set the size to the largest I can find, in all settings I can find, they're at least half the size they used to be.

I installed the Classic Theme Restorer, but setting the nav icons to large only applies to the top row of icons (where the address bar is), not to added-on toolbars or manually added toolbars. Text zoom applies only to the web page being viewed, not to Firefox itself. (Also, the large nav buttons are barely visible and seriously ugly; they're not simply a larger version of the default icons.)

How can I bring back the usual size of icons from the previous version??


Thanks in advance for the help.

There seems to be some regression in the latest version of Firefox. I cannot connect with PayPal at all, receiving the message: "Unable to connect - Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.paypal.com." Using the exact same settings I am able to connect with Firefox 25 and 28. I have restarted in safe mode--no avail. Firefox 25 finds PayPal with normal browsing--Safe Mode off, as does 28.

I keep getting a "suspicous pop-up saying,: "You need to download Firefox 32.0." It seems to be from Fifefox, is it? BTW. Love your site.

Also what video service do you folks have? My windows video is not working right.

Thanks for providing such a good service.

After upgrading to the latest version, 30.0, the right-click functions to Open link in New Tab or New Window stopped working. When I click the link that I would like to open in new tab or window, the right click window appears, I click on the desired function, and the right click window closes and nothing happens.

I restarted in safe mode and the problem remains. I am using Windows XP. I also tried uninstalling Firefox and then doing a clean re-install and that didn't help.

For now I went back to using version 29.0.1. Yes, I know that it isn't as safe but I can't use Version 30. without the right-click options!!!

I really wish the developers would focus on fixing bugs, vulnerabilities, etc. and leave the basic functions alone! The old saying if it isn't broken don't "fix" it!!!!!

After trying out the "pin tabs" option, the icon associated with that web site disappeared. I unpinned both sites, yet (even after reloading the tabs) I cannot get the icons to show on the tab.

I have had this happen before, even without pinning tabs: certain icons no longer show up on my tabs. It is becoming very difficult to locate the tabs I want now. I ended up having to remove FF completely, then reinstall it - NOTHING else worked. This is not an acceptable option.

Please help me before I decide to abandon Mozilla products forever!

I have had a problem with FF crashing when I print. This happens in Safe mode, as well as standard. Following instructions, I reset FF. No crash. I reset the home page to one of my choice, and crash occurred. I tried a couple of others (after resetting, again,) and the same thing happened.

This may be something to look at. As long as I have the default home page in place, I can print.

I have submitted this multiple times. Here is the latest crash report: bp-2c6028fd-a16d-4672-9d21-753232140530

I've been using Firefox for a hundred years, and have 550 gazillion cookies. I like cookies. (I'm an affiliate marketer and people who advise my customers to delete their cookies drive me nuts.) I'd like to delete cookies > 5 years old. How can I do that?

(By the way, can you tell whomever administers this forum that the emails it sends to reset passwords aren't structured properly? That's why my email provider--GoDaddy--says they're not delivering those emails from you. The forum never accepts my passwords, and trying to reset does nothing, so every time I want to ask a question I have to create a new account.)

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!

I have the setting: Startup - When firefox starts - show windows and tabs from last time. This almost always works, but not today. The odd thing is that all the tabs are still there, including the pinned ones on the left (square empty boxes), but all the tabs are blank ("New tab"). Except one that appeared on startup, the one that was active when i closed FF last night. If I click on History - Show all history = No items. Restore previous session is greyed out, as are Recently closed tabs and windows. It looks bad, what can I do to restore the previous session? How would this have happened, and how can I prevent it in future? Did the last FF update (today or yesterday) have anything to do with it?

There is a sessionstore.bak-[long string of numbers] dated 8/2/14, and a sessionstore.js dated 9/5/14, and a sessioncheckpoints,json dated 9/4/14 in the Profile default folder.
