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

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.

Firefox just out of nowhere decides to disable the flash plug-in without asking me. And everytime I go to a site that uses flash, I have to see this message (see link below.)

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/why-do-i-have-click-activate-plugins

So how do I reactivate the flash plugin without updating it? The reason I do not update it, is because when I update it, I get a constant pop-up error message. And when I uninstall my flash altogether, the constant error pop-up messages stop, but now I get the "you don't have it installed" message. And when I download an outdated version

So no matter what I do, I have problems with this. I don't want to have to keep clicking the "always activate plugin for this site" button, for every site I visit on the world wide web, because that is out-of-this-world annoying.

I'm getting really irritated by firefox, and their bull. I will not update because you can't keep up.

Recently I noticed that my R click search in google feature was missing, I tried restarting in safe mode to no avail, nor did any attempts in about:config.

I'm currently using FF 19.0.2 with Vista, and up until recently had no issues. I've also run my antiviral which is kept up to date as well as malwarebytes and even kaspersky ttsskiller all with no issues found.

Any ideas or suggestion?

Since I updated Firefox (actually it updated itself automatically) to version 18, it never closes cleanly anymore. Whether I close it using the cross on the top right, or using the menu option File > Exit, it disappears, but remains in memory.

So next time I try to start Firefox I get the message that Firefox is still running but it is not, just the process is still in memory. Only way to solve this is to use the Task Manager and kill the firefox.exe process. Then I can start Firefox again.

This problem is reproducible on all versions since 18, including the current 19.0.2. It happens every time !

But if I install version 17.0.2, then I have no problems at all ! So it is something introduced in release 18 that broke it.

I of course tried all "suggestions" about testing extensions (same problem in safe mode, so not the problem), disabling hardware acceleration, ...

Can someone please help ? (I am more and more considering switching to Chrome as this is really annoying ...)

Last week I realised that my old firefox did not work as all the extensions where gone and they could not be added again. I saved my old profile and made new one and then reinstalled firefox and got the 19 version. When I tried to import my old bookmarks it did not work - the folders where there but they were empty. But worse is that I cannot save any bookmarks at all. I have reinstalled Firefox, I have the 'Troubleshooter' and everything. Sometimes I can save one bookmark after I have opened the browser, but after that it does not work. I don't relly care if I cannot import the old bookmarks (I have imported them into explorer instead, and that worked) but at least I want to be able to save new ones. For the moment, the only reason I use Firefox is that I use Zotero, but if I keep having these problem I will change browser. I have not spend up to a working day trying to solve this problem.

Since several months I have successfully used "lockPref" to lock settings (specifically, proxy settings) on Firefox 17 and Firefox 18.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04, and I have used the file:
/etc/firefox/pref/firefox.js.
Firefox 17 did not always honor those settings. Often it did, sometimes it did'nt. I also found that there is another file location some people are using (?), and this is:

usr/lib/firefox/defaults/preferences/vendor-firefox.js 

To be sure, I put my settings into both of them. With Firefox 18, it did honor those settings. So this was working well.
(Note - I have NOT used any byteshifting or anything, as one can read was necessary for old versions of Firefox. There being no clear documentation by version, I feel I have no way to tell if this is actually still required or not. It was working without any byteshifting on Firefox 17 and 18.)

I just upgraded to Firefox 19 - and voila (of course, I might say) again the settings are not being honored. This time they are NEVER honored. They are JUST IGNORED, EVERY TIME.

This is very upsetting - can someone please point out what is now changed?
Do I now need to use yet another configuration locking file location?
Or do I suddenly need to do this byteshifting thing - if so what is the procedure right now for this?

Settings I am trying to lock are:

//set proxy server settings
lockPref("network.proxy.http", "a.b.c.d");
lockPref("network.proxy.http_port", yy);
lockPref("network.proxy.https", "a.b.c.d");
lockPref("network.proxy.https_port", yy);
lockPref("network.proxy.no_proxies_on", "localhost, 127.0.0.1");
lockPref("network.proxy.type", 1);

The context-sensitive Firefox menu that appears when I right click on a link appears exactly over the context-sensitive application menus that come up in Yahoo, Box, and other sites, so the Firefox menu blocks me from seeing or clicking on the Yahoo or Box menu options. Is there a way to prevent the Firefox menu from appearing on top when another menu is active? or a way to disable the Firefox menu when on certain web sites? Even having the Firefox menu appear in a different location (to the left, for example, instead of to the right), would enable me to see and access the website's application menu.

I remember the days when Firefox was really customizable...

You could actually select how far back FF would remember your history...I used to have nearly two years' worth of history...before the 'new and improved' system of 'rapid releases', that is.

It's not the release cycle that p****s me off, it's the little surprises that you discover later. Some of you know what I mean, the ones that the developers don't tell you about...the ones that all of the bug fixes, security patches and new features are supposed to make us overlook or forget the things that have been removed or don't work right...

Sorry, but I'm getting tired of wondering what in the hell is going to go wrong next...
