So the latest version of Firefox 19 comes with a built in PDF viewer.

The problem that I found is that this viewer at its present time does NOT show fillable fields ina PDF, or let the user type into these fillable fields, or show the electronic print and instructions buttons we place at the top of most of our PDF "forms".

Ex: http://www.tmcc.edu/financialaid/downloads/forms/1213/FINAConsortiumAgree1213.pdf

This form should show buttons at the top and let a user fill it out. It does with the Reader plugin. In FF 19's built in PDF viewer I cant seem to do anything.

We presently make all our PDF forms fillable, so if this is an issue, hopefully a fix or update can be found.

For the last few days my Firefox does not display the downloads window. I have tried to follow the suggestion set out in Firefox Help ie Tools --> Options --> General

But my General Tab doesn't show under Downloads the option to check the box "Show the Downloads window when downloading a file". Under Downloads, the only option shows "save files to Downloads" and "Always ask me where to save files".

Any suggestions on how I can get to --> Downloads the option to check the box "Show the Downloads window when downloading a file".

Thank you in anticipation

Every time that I try to get on YouTube or certain other sites, Firefox locks up for at least 60 seconds. Eventually I have to use Task Manager to close firefox. Then I have to go to IE or Chrome to view the pages.

I can get no help on this matter. I have tried every recommendation. I am afraid that firefox has no interest in solving this. I can use IE or Chrome [or Safari] without problem.

by the way, every time I try to contact firefox I have to register under another ID. My ID NEVER works and firefox NEVER sends a Password help email. EVERY time firefox says that my email is already used for firefox, but I NEVER receive ANY password email help at my address.

Just upgraded to 19.0.2.

Have Options set to "show my windows and tabs from last time" and is suddenly not restoring if I exit using File and then Exit command. It randomly saves a prior tab from the last time I rebooted only. It is, however, acting on the startup commands. For example, when I select "show blank page" or "show home page", it works. As soon as I select "show my windows and tabs from last time", it goes back to tab prior to the reboot and not the last tabs that I had prior to closing the last session.

When I exit using the "X" at the top right hand corner, however, no problem. My tabs from the previous session automatically re-appear but ONLY if I have "Show All Bookmarks" activated. If I exit that, then once again, that tab prior to the reboot reappears.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling FF (keeping my prior settings) and it did nothing. I have the history under the Privacy tab set to "remember history"

On a side note, I tried my other PC with the same version of FF, and it does not have this problem

Before I changed internet service providers, I could type my search queries into the url bar and receive search results from Google. After I switched ISPs, my queries typed into the url bar are put into my new ISP's horrible search engine. How do I change it back?

I've already tried going to about:config and changing the value of the keyword.URL preference to "http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=" but that didn't fix my problem.


New information since creation of the post:

My ISP is Optimum. I have opted out of DNS Assistance and still have seen no change.

When my search term is two words or more, I am directed to Google search results. If my search term is only one word, however, I am still directed to Optimum's search results.

Hello!

We are FireFox users and seem to be having two issues with Yahoo.

1. No Yahoo webpage will display correctly. No images will show and the webpages seem to display in an un-formatted manner. Also, any Yahoo webpage is very slow to load.

2. Our Yahoo Mail account has recently become un-responsive while using Mozilla FireFox. For example, if we reply to an e-mail in Yahoo, the address does not show up and we cannot type the message. We cannot send mail in Yahoo while using Mozilla FireFox.

I have been talking with Yahoo and they are now saying that it is a Browser issue.

Can anyone assist with this please?

Thanks,

I've gone through all the suggestions, troubleshooting listed here and nothing has worked in stopping this "hanging" business. It started earlier this week with FF16. So I tried uninstalling, clearing out any traces of it, profiles and all. R-installed with the previous extensions, plugins and scripts. Still did it. So I either disabled or uninstalled said add-ons. Still did it. Upgraded to 17, then 18. Same problem. "Not responding" every couple of minutes for just a few seconds, longer when I switched tabs. I'm a heavy tab user, but given the problem, I've gone down to no more than 3 open at the same time. Still hangs. So I decided to do a complete overhaul. Did a reset. I even thought it was my computer (Vista with SP2) which had been working fine and was slowing down around the same time FF was hanging and being a resource hog.

With FF uninstalled, with the help of Microsoft support, I worked on the laptop. Uninstalled my usual programs, including AV (which had avast). Moved all my files to an external hard drive. In essence leaving my computer with bare bones. Did a defrag and a system restore. I reinstalled av, then ran it. All clear. Ran malwarebytes. All clear. Ran registry clean. All fine. So I reinstalled FF18 and did not use any add-ons. Still hanged. Went up to FF19 beta thinking whatever but there is, would be cured. And it worked fine witn no add-ons. So I started installing my usuals, but leaving only the most important ones, ABP, No Script. Was ok so I added greasemonkey, smartest toolbar, download statusbar and unhide passwors. All which I've used for years with no problems. And FF19 worked fine with no hanging for like a day and a half. Today, (jan 24) not only is it haning and not responding again, but it's doing it more frequently and for longer.

FF never has crashed, it just hangs and freezes. My job is ALL online. I don't like Chrome (not user friendly to me). I'd rather avoid using IE. I'm a user of FF since day one, but this is stressing me out because I cannot do my job properly.

What can I do to make it stop? My only other option is to just forget FF and try and get used to Opera.

Now that I think about it, could this hanging problem be related to the Java issue that has come out publicly recently?

I don't know what else to do. I've tried everything that has been written here. Trust me, I've wasted 2 days on this issue. Time I'll never get back and I could've used to do work.

Thanks

Firefox 19.0 locks up when trying to load Facebook. This started yesterday, March 5 at about 1300 hrs PST. After a long delay, a Warning: Unresponsive Script dialog appears, saying that "A script on this page may be busy or it may have stopped responding". The script listed is https://fbstatic-a.akamaihd.net/rsrc.php/v2/yH/r/LEOX0R6UVT4.js:16. Clicking either Continue or Stop Script has the same effect: the entire Firefox application remains frozen. After several minutes, the same warning box appears again. The only way to escape the situation is to force-close Firefox. The crash reporter never appears.

Facebook loads normally in both Chrome and IE8.

I cannot use iCloud.com in Firefox at all. Starting from the login prompt there are many issues. From the e-mail field, you cannot use Tab to move to password field, only mouse. From the password field, you do not see the eye icon to show password (IE only?), and cannot use the clickable arrow to continue, only enter. Once signed in, you can click any of the icons such as Mail or Calender, but not the Help "?" in the corner. From inside any and all of the services (Mail, Reminders, etc) you lose complete control of any of the buttons, options, scrolling menus - everything. The back button on the website (iCloud icon) does not work, forcing you to use the browser back button. Clicking on another service presents the same issues - absolutely nothing is usable, clickable, or scrollable. It seems like Javascript has completely failed - though that is an uneducated guess in the dark.

This occurs on Windows 8 64bit and Firefox 18/19 Beta. I have gone through many troubleshooting steps and it has made no difference in the slightest. I have cleared all caches several times, from inside Firefox and through 3rd party utilities. Tested in Safe Mode to no avail. Manually removed several add-ons, checked all add-ons are fully up-to-date (as always), and reset all Firefox settings to default (except Hardware Acceleration that causes graphics issues in 8 - does not help iCloud.com enabled, though). It works fully in all other browsers with similar add-ons without issue. I have not done a full, complete reset and profile removal - that is next. However, I have a gut feeling that is not the issue at hand. I performed a clean install of Windows 8 and a clean install of Firefox less than 2 weeks ago.

Hello,

After upgrading Firefox to version 19.0 today, I noticed that the Downloads Clear List Button does not work & is always grayed/greyed out, and so you can not clear all downloads; and so you have to remove them each one-at-a-time.

I did not have this problem until upgrading to version 19.0

Everytime I restart my computer, instead of having Google as my homepage it always switches to Startpage by Ixquick. Same thing goes with the search box on the right, no matter what setting I make it directs me to this Startpage. As well as when I highlight a word- right click- search google, it takes me yet again to this Startpage (in the new tab). I've scanned the computer, did the anti-malware thing, nothing. These things started to occur few days ago. I am using FF 19 (updated the latest version today, 08.03.2013). I hope I was detailed enough. Thank you for your answers !

Firefox 19.0 there is a website where they have a gallery of pictures all the images from the gallery are hosted on Photobucket, they use to show up as normal but now for some reason they don't, I tried clearing the cookies and the cache, I made sure the download images automatically is check and every other bit of advise I could find on the web to no avail.

One thing I notice though is if you right click the missing image to get to view image information you will see Location: the address of the image is correct (copy and paste in the address bar bring up the image) Type: text/html (This is odd it should be img/jpeg) Size: 0 kb (of course the image was not downloaded) Dimension: 0 x 0 (again no image downloaded)

So if anybody has an idea how to fix this it would be greatly appreciated.
