Hi there, I tried downloading a file today, and it gave me no prompt to save, or any errors. It doesn't show up in the downloads tab no does it even initiate. I've tried downloading several other files, and the same thing. This doesn't usually happen, just the other day it worked fine.

I've tried downloading with both Chrome and iE, and they both work - i prefer using Firefox though.

I've followed all the troubleshooting advie I could find on the support pages, to no avail.

I disabled my anit-virus, I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. Cleared the cache and cookies. But still no downloads.

This has never happened to me before, is there something I can do to rememdy this issue?

Kind Regards Zaakir

As an end user (not developer) how do I force my web-browser to have a (vertical) scrollbar?

I am looking at a web page designed for a full height screen. When using a desktop with external large monitor not a problem. However when using a small laptop screen (e.g.: ThinkPad with small height screen) the bottom of the web page gets cut off. If I make the page smaller (about 67%) zoom - then the page fits but it it not possible to identify the info I seek as font is now too small and overlapping.

In general as an end user I want to force my web-browser to have a scrollbar no matter what the source says - my PC my choice.

I seem to have lost the option to set my FF to open PDFs. Not long ago, I refreshed Firefox, and it's been a nightmare every since. I'm about ready to just wipe it completely and start over.

Before I refreshed it, it used the native viewer to preview PDFs in the browser. Now that option is not even available. I went into about:config and saw the the pdf.js function was disabled, so I enabled it. That didn't work. Nothing works.

Please tell me how to fix this. I work very hard on time sensitive projects and I don't have time to download and open every single PDF outside the browser.

How do I get this option back? And yes, I've tried it in safe mode. It isn't another add-on, the pdf.js file just doesn't seem to be there.

I'm trying to get rid of it. Is Flash present but under another name?

I already set browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand to True (and browser.sessionstore.restore*) and set "show my windows from last time" in general options. When I reopen firefox only the active tab gets reloaded, the other ones are there with their favicons, but blank. I have to click on each of them to activate them which only then reloads them. Previously they automatically reloaded. PS: Please don't tell me about how it "can lag firefox". I know this. I still want to use this function as it were in previous builds of firefox and palemoon. Thank you.

I have created a website using Firefox as my browser, and tested it on all platforms and using laptop, phone, ipad. I'm seeing that the logo I created and one of the images which look good on Firefox are greyscale in Chrome and Safari. All the other colours look good and I'm at a loss. If it was all of them, I could understand, but it's not. I suspect this is a common query, and I'm sorry to bother you with this because I'm going round in circles on the support forums and everywhere. Here is the URL - it's still in test but I've taken maintenance down so you can see if you use another browser. This is the first website I've built so it's not something I've come across before http://www.thenorthwestvahub.co.uk/ Have you a suggestion please? Firefox is always my browser of choice, but unfortunately others use Chrome and Safari. Many thanks!

Tried disabling all addons and also my Comodo Internet Security Premium.

As soon as Facebook loads, FF crashes. Other sites work fine. I can open Facebook in Chrome, so it is not a problem with Facebook or my internet connection.

Here are the some of the last several crash reports:
