The above. When I opened a new tab in the past, before the new update, firefox would automatically highlight the text in the address bar, and I could simply start typing from there the address of the site I wanted. I could quickly get to anywhere I wanted in less than a second. Now, I have to drag and click into the address bar every time. I installed an add-on called "custom newtab" but it just slows me down further due to a lag between the opening of a new tab, and the add-on kicking in and highlighting the address bar content. What happens is this: Click "new tab" New tab opens blank and the text appears highlighted "google.co.uk" for about a quarter second. Page loads Google and the highlighted text becomes unhighlighted for another quarter second. Add-on kicks in and highlights the text "google.co.uk" meanwhile I've already begun typing and end up losing the first part of the words, sending me to random web pages and searches.

Why did this change?! Fix it please!

I just had to reset FF to default, and it forgot my sync information. No problem, I'll just re-enter it.

Of course I went to Tools->Options->Sync. Then things got weird.

So I tried "Set up Firefox Sync" and it opened another window. Fine, but then the button "I have an account" doesn't do anything. Click click click click click, nothing happens, it's without functionality.

Then, in Pair a Device, which is how I'd normally do it, the link at the bottom of the window "I don't have the device with me" (which is poorly worded in my opinion) is just plain missing. It's not there. Gone. If you'd like, I can make you a screen shot.


So, I don't know what to do now. I just want to sync.

Hello!

My problem is that FF itself is not displaying/rendering fonts as it should or not at all. Weird part is that OS in questions is a fresh install, and it did not show itself at start, ie it worked normally, but later after few runs of FF it suddenly started (no apparent cause AFAIK), the only thing that could affected it is OS updates, which I am running ATM.

Some clarifications/additional info: -Only FF is affected ( maybe Thunderbird too , did not install to check) EDIT: just did, TB is OK -Only FF PROGRAM FONTS are not displayed, and some ( ex: about:config ) in-window page content -After blindly finding option to change font/s, it did nothing -Cleaning/New/Deleting/Resetting/Restoring OLD Profile/Firefox does not help -Reinstalling FF and or Cleaning all registry entries related to FF does not help -HTML content works as it should (at least all I checked) -Windows 7 fresh install (currently doing win updates), with basics software installed and drivers (not much to mess up things) -I cannot edit anything in about:config due to it not being shown properly, and I do not know of any .cfg/.ini/etc file to try

I don't know what else could help You troubleshoot, but will add whatever needed

I'm including some screenshots to help you understand:

When searching using keywords in the awesome bar, it converts any Japanese characters to their percent-encoded forms (sorry if I'm using the wrong terminology here). This is no problem for most searches, for example http://eow.alc.co.jp/search?q=%E3%81%A0%E3%81%AE and http://eow.alc.co.jp/search?q=だの both give the same result and load the same page without issue.

However, some searches (I've only noticed this with amazon.com and amazon.co.jp, but presumably it could happen on other sites) do not play nice with this conversion. For example, entering "amazon だ" ("amazon" being my amazon search key) gives me the URL http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=%3F, which instead searches for "?" for some reason. If I manually substitute だ instead of the %3F (giving http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=%E3%81%A0), it conducts the search as expected. I don't really know what's going on here (i.e., why Amazon is showing it as %3F when it should be %E3%81%A0) but hopefully someone more familiar with this can shed some light on the situation.

EDIT: I should note that non-Japanese searches work just fine. In addition, no sites (that I've tried) have had problems with Japanese searches other than Amazon.

I have this bizarre problem with firefox and Amazon (com and co.uk) If I click a link (open in new tab) to an amazon page the page opens in a new tab. Fine. If I then select that page (click its tab) the page is displayed and then a new amazon page opens in a new tab with the url http://www.amazon.com/?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0&link_code=hom&tag=skipthemalls-20 If I close the new amazon page and return to the original amazon page the phenomenon does not repeat - not new window opens.

This does not happen in any other browser (IE or Chrome) This does not happen on any other website.

I've scanned my PC (Malwarebytes and security essentials) and found nothing sinister

All forefox add ons are disabled. To be sure, I've started 'restarted firefox with add ons disabled' and the problem still occurs. I've even reset Firefox to its original state and still the problem occurs.

So now what? Windows 7 Ultimate Thinkpad R60 4GB

Goal - use remote desktop via citrix website; Did work in FF in July; now (Aug) it doesn't

Problem: Application frame with link to RDP is blank

I log into website OK - three frames should be present: 1) fileshare - I don't use this & it appears to load OK; 2) websites - I don't use this & it appears to load OK ; and 3) Applications - This frame is blank but it should load a collection of links including a link to remote desktop

Behavior: If I have just cleared the history then the application frame will "clock" (this is normal) but instead of showing the links a blank frame appears; If I have NOT just cleared the history, the application frame shows the "clock" but it is frozen; slightly different but still results in blank application frame.

I have tried: 1. clear history before logging in (change in "clocking" but still results in blank application frame 2. IPV6- disable by set to true; No impact on problem; toggle back to false 3. network DNS disable prefetch; disable by set to true  ; no impact on problem; toggle back to false 4. preference named plugins.load_appdir_plugins; change its value to true; no impact - set back to false

One significant change I have made "around" the time of the problem is I uninstalled norton that came preinstalled, installed adaware, and removed/ disabled the adaware browser toobar ;

I will appreciate any suggestions from the community.

FF 23.0.1 Windows XP.

I can download fine and they show up in the little window on Firefox, but they are not being saved to the My Documents - Downloads folder, which is where I assigned them to go in Tools-Options-General.

Since I'm on XP, there are no User files so I can't look in Users/XXX/Temp/Appdata or any of those locations.

I can double click on the downloaded file in the little Firefox window and the file opens, so I know they are saved somewhere on my computer, but where????
