hi, i updated firefox today to 16.0.1 and the forward and back buttons are always greyed out, it doesn't matter how many times i navigate to a new page, they never become active. also, the open in new window right click option does not work either, it will open a new window without the url of the link i clicked on and just displays a blank page. it seems that open in new tab is still usually functional though.

i am on a macbook pro running mac osx 10.8.2 and i also tried upgrading to the firefox 17 beta to see if that would fix it and it did not resolve any of the problems.

please help!

Firefox 16.0.2 advertises User-Agent string with "Firefox/16.0" without the patch-level version

I'm running Firefox 16.0.2 on Mac OS X 10.8.2.

"About Firefox" reports that I'm on the "release"update channel.

The User-Agent string is "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.8; rv:16.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/16.0"

Why does the User-Agent string not say "16.0.2" instead of "16.0"? I know that if I follow a different update channel (like aurora, etc.), I'll get a shortened version-number in my UA string, but since I'm on the "release" update channel, I figured that when I got 16.0.2 the UA string would say "16.0.2".

Note that I've never tried to forge my UA string nor do I have any plug-ins that I can imagine would mutate the UA string.

I receive a message box asking if I would like to update Firefox. I click on yes and it goes to the download box with the long horizontal download bar with blue and white moving lines. That never changes...it simply stays with this box, the download bar never changes and it doesn't matter how long I wait for it to complete install it never occurs. The update box appears randomly in time, but it is quite often.

I'm trying to use the new min-resolution dppx media query support in Firefox 16 to work with my retina MacBook Pro, however when targetting the dppx with min-resolution it's not being supported by the browser. Is this actually correctly supported by Firefox now, or is it still outstanding?

Test case is here - I've set it to 1dppx, so as far as I understand the text should be red on any screen (not just a retina one): http://mjw.in/firefox/test1.html

I run Mac OS 10.8.2 and Firefox 16.0.2

I run into situations where Firefox is writing huge quantities of data to my hard drive. The CPU utilization isn't significant (25% or less), but the Disk Activity is maxed for quite some time (up to a minute), which results in non-responsiveness of all applications.

When I try to download a file, everything at first appears to function properly. I get the option to specfic the download location, for example. It does not matter if I accept the default location (downloads), or if I specify a custom location (for example, my Desktop). Once I initiate the download there is a brief animated sequence showing a file icon going somewhere. Once that's done, however, I find there has been no download accomplished. The file is not in the specfied location, and a searching the computer does not show that it went anywhere else either. I have no difficulties downloading files with Safari. I would prefer to use Firefox.

I am set up to use a default layout of four tiles in Firefox 16.0.2 (OSX 10.8.2) so that I can look at four separate web pages at once. This is really handy; however, it does not work consistently. Sometimes when I open a link, the link opens within the tile, which is what I prefer. Then I just use the "home" function or the "back" function to get back to the original tile. On the other hand, sometimes opening a link spawns another complete four-tile layout.....and another link within one of those tiles might spawn yet another 4-tile layout. Can I configure Firefox so that links only open within the tile? If so I can't figure out how.

Also.......saving the 4-tile layout does not seem to remember the four separate four links. If I have to reload my saved layout I simply get 4 tiles of the home page.

If I can't, then my suggestion is that Firefox be "improved" to do that because having multiple 4-tile screens gets messy real quick.

I love Firefox, but I have 2 distinctly different needs. I need 2 separate Firefox browsers with very different settings, consistent with very different uses:

1. This use of Firefox will be for visiting many different websites, a wide variety of interests.

2. I need this use of Firefox to be very limited and restricted, consistent with handling personal investments, banking, financial transactions. There will be very few websites, but with extremely secure, private, connections.

I set it to always start in private browsing on a Mac. For some sessions, I would like to start the browser where the history IS kept on the computer. When I try to go and turn off private browsing in the "Tools" menu, the "Stop Private Browsing" menu is grayed out (i.e. unable to click it).

Basically, I want a reverse to the original function (i.e. I want it to always be in private browsing EXCEPT for certain times instead of the original never in private browsing EXCEPT for certain times).
