A brand new iMac with the current OS X 10.8.2 has no Applications folder in the dock. When I try to download Firefox the last step instructs to drag the Firefox icon into the Applications folder. What do I do since there is no such folder?

FYI, an older MacBook Pro I had does have an Applications folder in the dock so there was no problem downloading and installing Firefox.

When I click on a PDF, a new tab opens. It gives me the option to open the document directly or save it--this is what I have preferences set to do. However, when I try either of those options nothing happens. It only opens a new blank tab. My specifications are below. I've run all the relevant software updates.

System: OS X 10.8.2

Adobe Reader: 10.1.5

Firefox: 18.0.1

I've seen this problem on other posts and I've done some searching on the web. I've tried the solutions that have been provided and worked for other people, however I noted that they were running older versions of some of the software, etc. Interestingly, I CAN open PDFs that come to me or that I send through Gmail.

I have done the following based on the advice I've seen:

Cleared my downloads list

Tried disabling the Adobe NPAPI Plug-In

In my Firefox preferences: I have set PDF documents to be open by Adobe. I also tried it with Preview. Neither of them worked.

I appreciate any help you can offer.

The last couple of versions of Firefox have seemingly been more permissive in the popup allowing. If I go to http://www.popuptest.com/popuptest12.html, all three popups open with a simple window.open() JavaScript call. The only one that gets blocked is when I click the back button. Shouldn't the ones that open automatically be the ones that get blocked? I've gotten quite a few ad popups, and it's making me wonder if window.open() is being ignored now.

When I download a file, Firefox does 2 things: changes the file name to gobbledy-gook of letters and numbers, AND, adds a .part extension -- therefore the files won't open. This is a NEW problem. If I manually remove the .part extension in the download folder, the file will open, but I still have the problem of the name change. I believe that the .part extension is supposed to go away when the download is finished, but that does not happen. Also, my downloads always used to come with their original name, not a numbers/letters name. Thoughts?

I'm trying to use Google Drive through my gmail account on Firefox.

When I click on the Upload button my only option is to "enable folder upload...", I click on that and get this message, "Enable folder upload Your browser doesn't support the uploading of entire folders. We recommend that you use the Chrome web browser instead, which supports folder upload. Alternatively, you can install a Java-based Folder Upload applet in your browser." I also get the option to "Download Chrome" or "Install Applet", and when I click on install applet the message "Java Applet installation failed" appears after a few seconds.

I'm running OS X 10.8.5, Both Firefox and Java are the latest version and enabled. I've gone into Java settings in System Preferences and made sure it was "enabled", I deleted the temporary files folder as well, I also cleared my cookies, cache and history in Firefox and restarted.

I don't know what else to do, please help, I don't want to install Chrome. Thanks, N

I just installed brand new Firefox 25.0.1 on a Mac Mini (running Mountain Lion 10.8.2) just two weeks ago, and since day one I've been having the same problem that lots of other people are having, and that's the constant half-second delays that happen about every 4 to 5 seconds. Even typing this post, the delays are there. Pulling down menus and selecting items, trying to move the scroll bar, or playing youtube videos, Firefox keeps hanging briefly every few seconds. It's maddening.

I never had any problem with Apple's Safari browser (the only reason I switched to Firefox was because Safari Ad Block stopped working and I needed Download Helper). That this problem exists on PC and Mac means it's nothing specific to the computer, but to Firefox.

What I wish would not be given the same generic advice that never seems to work, like reinstall Firefox (it was already installed cleanly, what would a reinstall do?), but have somebody at Mozilla actually explain what is causing the problem, or if they plan to ever fix it.

So far I only have a temporary fix, which is to completely quit out of Firefox and re-run it. That solves the problem for a little while, but within an hour or two, or three, it's back to the same problem. There are plenty of other threads that mention this or similar problems (see below), but all seem to be on PC's not Macs, and none seem to give a 100% universal fix for everybody.

How to stop Firefox from hanging and lagging? firefox freezes every few seconds even with latest update and pluging my Firefox freezes every a few seconds , so will you fix it ?

When I move the mouse over anything on the screen it flickers. When I move it across a hyperlink it flickers from an arrow to a hand. This flickering is so quick and constant that it has become an annoyance and is enough to drive me back to using Safari full time. I cant figure out how to stop this. I have deleted and reinstalled a fresh copy of Firefox, but that didnt help. I tried restarting with plug ins off and that didnt stop it.

When I tried to add the latest version from the get addons page, I first get a dialog asking if I want to install the file; when I select "install now", I get a box saying that "Adblock plus could not be installed because Firefox cannot modify the necessary file" I also downloaded and installed AnonymoX, which appeared to install successfully, but I find no icons or controls, no way to start it up, control its function, or verify that it is in fact installed/working. There is no icon window at the bottom of my Firefox window (or anywhere else that I can find).

Hiding the tab bar is no longer controllable, I love my screen space, but please make the tab bar vanish if I don't need it. Do I need an add-on for this now? (ugh!)

And now I can't even send feedback on Input- https://input.mozilla.org because it doesn't give me an option to register a persona account!!!

I need to give Mozilla a Tennessee talking to about this snafu. What's the email address for them?
