(For Forum Moderators: Please read /forums/forum-moderators/710264?last=59300)


Moderators, please read first before closing/removing this topic right away?
To those wanting to react here on this topic: please, also read ;)
Since my original posting https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/997009 was closed because one of the moderators felt it was going off-topic (although it was red a lot and had 131 "have-this-problem" in just a few days), here a kind of re-opening but on-topic.
Why? Because I feel we have the right to express our feelings on this major change. And publicly there is actually only this forum where that can be done on the Mozilla.org domain.
Sure, the change is there and we have to live with it (if we choose to). But that doesn't mean we can not have our voice here because after many, many years of supporting FF with our use, we suddenly are facing a layout we were always running away from.
So yes, that can cause ranting and so on (within the forum rules of course) because people feel strongly about there beloved browser.
(edit rules link note the whole topic is ordinarily outside the scope of the forum ... Posts in the Mozilla support forum must be either questions about the use of Firefox, ... Users who post about things other than Mozilla support will be directed to an alternative discussion place .... . ~J99)

Plus this way you can centralize all the negatives here instead of a lot of separate postings about the same subject ;)
To the people reacting here in this topic: there is only 1 real way to let Mozilla itself know how you feel on the new lay out and that is not through this forum. The way is to go to https://input.mozilla.org/feedback/ and let it know there.
edit You need to use a supported Firefox to post Feedback so that will soon not be possible from Fx28 2nd edit. I was wrong feedback works with any version of Fiefpx now~J99

And I think when that is done in normal words (so no f*ck you rants and so on) and suggestions, then maybe, just maybe, it has some effect.
Also, there is an Mozilla support page with info on how to get the "old look" back, see How to make the new Firefox look like the old FirefoxBut it will only partly restore the old look, certain FF29 things can not be changed.

And yes, I myself am back to Firefox 28 which is not supported or suggested by Mozilla because it has things (bugs and security) that are not fixed in it. (Edit Please use Official downloads if you must downgrade links in Install an older version of Firefox and the growing list of exploits you will open yourself up to is listed here: https://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefox.html ~J99)

I am not suggesting or advertising to others to do the same. It is a risk I am willing to take and only say it is an option.
edit My reason to go back to FF 28 is because that version still has the intuitive feel and look Firefox one was praised for. With a logical lay out and a good way to simply customize it (also in about:config).
For those who say/think "Come one man, stop whining! Grow up and just accept that Firefox has to go with its time!", to them I say: nope ;)

I've been away from my desktop for a week and now the searches in the address bar are not working. For example, I used to just type 'test' into the search bar and the tab would show a list of Google searches. Two words work though. Any and all help would be deeply appreciated.

Hi, Since yesterday (August 19, 2016) Netflix stop working and I get a message at the top of the page saying "Firefox is installing components needed to play audio or video, please try again later". I just called Netflix support and they say that recently they stop using Silverlight and moved to HTML5, they advised me to update Firefox to the latest version, I was running on 47.0.1 but now after installing the update I'm running on 48.0.1 but still get the same error message. I can watch Netflix with Internet Explorer but not with Firefox anymore! For years was working fine I am wondering what's going on, can you help?

These two FB features work perfectly on Safari.

Is this a Firefox problem, or a FB problem?

Yesterday I discovered a pop-up attached to my Mozilla Firefox, it was essentially a white box, with a grey bar inside, which I dangerously clicked as it would not allow me to close or access my Mozilla. Clicking the box revealed an ad for something call PC Keeper which now also shows in my remembered links as being in a second window. I was forced to shut down my computer to close the Mozilla, making all my links unavailable to me, and ultimately had to uninstall it from my computer. I attempted to reinstall a new version, but, again found this PC Keeper attached to it, it's white window firmly locking everything up, and forcing me again to uninstall the program. Please, find me a way to once more have my Mozilla without this PC Keeper.

New year, new effort because I never got a resolution before and no one has responded in a while.

have you checked under "background processes" - not apps, the first part, scroll down and have a look.

Every time I click a desktop shortcut to open a new FF windows (already one open, that be a new one), it adds a FF in background processes. If I click File, New Window, it doesn't seem to do it except once in a while, maybe once every 10 times or so (I'm not sure on that). I've had up to 30 before I found out what was happening. Started after the new FF 57 installed, never was a problem before. They can only be removed by deleting each one individually or by restarting the computer. Quitting FF and restarting does nothing. I can recreate this at will. I've tried all the recommended from my previous post with no success. Attached a screen shot, as you can see the use very little memory, but it still seems like a crash waiting to happen.

Please review my previous post before you make a suggestion so that there aren't a bunch of repeats. previous post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1183462

Anyone? Anything? Have you checked your task manager background processes for FF?

If so, delete that file and delete the corresponding flashplayer.xpt file from that folder. Actually, you can delete that folder altogether - Firefox hasn't had that folder for a number of years now, but will use whatever files might be in there from years ago.""

I recently noticed a new pocket button in nightly, and I was wondering what this is. From bugzilla, it seems there is a project to integrate pocket with firefox, but I have a few questions about it:

  • why is this being done/why is it replacing the (now unavailable) firefox reading list?
  • Is mozilla being compensated by pocket or anyone else for this?
  • Who stores the data: mozilla, pocket, or someone else?
  • is there an option to disable this?

Thanks!

The below was sent as a Contributor on 7.24.2016 with "Review Needed" left open, unanswered or confirmed. Please escalate.

Impossible to set up Thunderbird auto or manual settings with Century Link on POP; the same from the latter that were not even close to getting this set up.

There is only one door to go through here for this setup with an ADDITIONAL manual correction to the SMTP port:

1. Choose POP3 and check that Incoming is: pop.centurylink.net and Outgoing is: smtp.centurylink.net 2. Here is where it goes off the charts: ALL settings to the right of the above set to Autodetect / Auto in Manual configuration, then click Re-test / Done. 3. The ports that you will see will be 110 and 25 with SSL of STARTLS in each respectively 4. Click Done; HOWEVER, you now have to go into Account Settings after it accepts your ISP mail server [Incoming only] and Edit the SMTP port manually to 25 or it will fail in that area.

It turns out when I have Firefox Quantum focused, and leave it inactive for around five minutes, my computer goes to sleep.

That doesn't happen when I have it running in the background, or not at all.

I have used Firefox for many years and am always current, as I am with Windows 10, but the last few updates have caused major problems:

1. At times I get a red screen Firefox Critical Error which usually locks up my PC. Sometimes I can free it up with Cntl/Alt/Del, but sometimes I cannot even shut down, have to physically unplug the PC. The screen says to call a phone number for Microsoft support, but this is a 3rd-party company selling software which has somehow compromised Firefox. I reported this before but no one seems to be doing anything about it.

2.Although I have checked Block pop-up windows under Permissions, I now get suspicious pop-up windows the first time I click on many web pages. If I immediately close these, I can then use the page fine. Is there something else I need to do to block these pop-ups?
